Many of the strangers in the city are attending the two conventions preparatory to taking an active interest in the Inland Empire Teachers' as sociation, which convenes here Wednesday' night. It is expected that between now a nd Wednesday evening more than 400 teachers and educators from Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon will attend the latter meeting, which remains in session until Friday evening. The attendance upon the meetings In Clarkston and at the Normal is much larger than expected, which is taken to mean that the number of teach ers at the Inland Empire Teachers' association will be greater than at first anticipated.

One of the principal talks of the morning session was given by Miss Henry who, in discussing tfie topic, "The Mother Tongue," emphasized the need of taking strong ground in pre paring for teaching English by getting the historic view point. Scholarship is the basis of all effec tive teaching because it helps to solve all the problems of grammar and com position. The speaker sketched in the origin of the English language, giving the several elements in their chronolo gical order and relative strength, show ing the grace and the adaptibility of j our mother tongue, richest perhaps and ! strongest of all languages, and the j most likely to be the world wide lan- j gunge of civilized nations. This ^otind ground for the basis for [ the proper teaching of English can ' only be attained a living sacrifice, but for enthusiasm and love of the work because of this wider outlook nothing couid take Us rlnoe.

Mnthes. of the Bellingham Washington Normal, opened up the way to his discourses on the study of history this morning by a talk on the "Preparation for Teaching History."
