Object of Tour Is to Familiarize
Educators With Home
Clinic for Treatment of Pupils
Below Normal Is Advo=
cated at Institute
OAKLAND. -O.t. 29.—The Alameda!
County Teachers" Institute began its,
session today with a large number of
men and women leaving Idora park for
an inspection of the city's factories. |
The excursion was taken under the
auspioes of the manufacturers' com-j
mittee of the Chamber of Commerce
and was conducted by a committee from
that organization led by Frederick
Roegle Jr.. secretary.
The visit to the factories has been
made a part of the 'institute conven
tion this year by County Superintend
ent of Schools George W. Frick, who
believes that the educators should have
a more intimate knowledge of local in
dustries. The trip was extensive and
ivas enjoyed by every guest.
Dr. Richard G. Boone of the Univer
sity of California spoke on "'Profitable
Associations for Busy Teachers." Booi__
urged the teachers to mingle and ex
change ideas in their work. He said
that only in this way could the highest j
ideals be disseminated and progress
made in school thought. expressed
himself as against the plan used by
many. of going through the routine
of teaching without seeking to develop
the right kind of habits in children. He
urged that this be done and said that
he thought it could only be accom
plished by a wide association with
other minds.
Doctor Boone took up the. subject of
children, who are known to be below
or above the normal. Regarding the
former he said:
I think the time will come when
a clinic will be established at the
University of California, where
l-oys and girls below the normal
ran be sent for treatment, just as
it would be possible to procure
treatment for one suffering from
a physical disease. This should be
done, as there are no less than
2,900 children in San Francisco,
Oakland and Berkeley who decided
ly are abnormal. These certainly
would furnish sufficient material
for a university clinic for the next
rive years, even if we took in no
This clinic will be difficult to ob
tain. It will require concerted ac
tion and much work on the part of
the teachers of the county if we
to pet it.- If they are willing
to work and to inform themselves
on this important subject the time
may not be far off when we will
have a folly equipped clinic of this
kind at the University of Califor
I Doctor Boone spoke also of the work
the manufacturers' committee has been
doing toward the success of the pres
ent session and said that he believed
the visits to the factories would be of
great value to the teachers.
Others who spoke during the day
were Kdward O. Sisson, on "The Edu
cation of the Will*" Doctor Boone, on
"Some Recent Professional Litera
ture," and Edward O. Sisson, on "The
Art of Questioning."

Beware of the Lure of
Unreasonably Low Price
Fight shy of the bait of unreasonably low price when, purchasing
your piano. Back of any proposition which seemingly enables you
to buy pianos for less than their worth lies future*disappointment for
the unsuspecting purchaser. Pianos are not sold at less than their
value. Neither are they disposed of without profit to the seller. This
fact is apparent to all.
The Ludwig Piano $365
we are confident, is the best piano to be had at that price, and the
figure is low, when the quality is considered. It is well made, of
splendid tone, action and finish. It has been a standard of value for
many years and many hundreds are giving satisfaction in California
homes. / s
The Ludwig Piano is offered at a price that is high enough to
guarantee to you a piano of sterling worth, low enough to enable
you to meet the monthly payments without inconvenience. We un
hesitatingly recommend it as the best piano possible at its price.

Eczema Began in Hair. Spread to
Face. Came on Hand and All Over
Fingers. Itching Terrible. Cuti
cura Soap and Ointment Cured.
205 Kanter Aye., Detroit, Mich.—"Some
time last summer I was taken with eczema.
It began In my hair first with red blotches
§then scaly, spreading to my
face. The blotches were red
on my face, dry and scaly, not
large; on my scalp they were
larger, some scabby. They
came on my hands. The in
side of my hands were all little
lumps as though full of shot
about one-sixteenth of an inch
under the akin. Then they
went to the outside and between and all
over my fingers. It also began on the
bottoms of my feet and the calves of my
legs, and itch, oh. My! I never had any
thing like it and hope I never will again.
Tbe itching was terrible. My hands got so
I could scarcely work.
"I tried different eczema ointments bu*
without results. I also took medicine for it
but it did no good. I saw the advertisement
for a sample of Cuticura Ointment and Soap
and sent for one. They did me so much
good I bought some more using them as
per directions and in about three weeks I
was well again. Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment entirely cured me." (Signed) Benj.
