Object of Normal Institutes
The importance of the Normal Institute as apart of
our school system cannot easily be overestimated. To
many teachers it is the
Schools to be Closed
SECTION 2773. No school shall be in session dur
ing the time of holding Institute, except by written
permission of the County Superintendent. We are
opposed to schools being in session at this time. Yet
permission has been given if no objections have been
made by patrons. But in our opinion any school kept
in session so late as to conflict with the Normal Insti
tute is a case of time and money thrown away.
Regulations Governing the Issuing of Uniform
-Regular examinations for uniform county certifi
cates are held on the last Friday and Wednesday and
Thursday preceding of the months of June, July and
October. See section 2734-c, School Laws of 1907.

port of the examination, nor will their answer papers

any examination, the fee collected from such a candi
date should be refunded.

The examination shall be strictly in accordance
with the following:
8:00 to 8:30—Preliminary.

school in which they can
get any training in the best means of discipline and
the most approved methods of instruction. To many
others it is the only place in which they can go annu
ally for new draughts of inspiration and enthusiasm
to refresh themselves for another year's work.
The most important thing to be done in an insti
tute is not to impart information that will assist in
securing a certificate, nor alone to drill in the latest
and best methods of teaching, but to inspire the life
less, strengthen the weak, encourage the discouraged,
and elevate the teachers' ideals of their work and life.
Monday, Jun6 13th, will be enrollment day. No
recitations on that day. The committee on enroll
ment will be at the high school building Monday from
10 a. m. to 11 a. m. and from 4 p. m. to 6 p. m. Be
ready to enter upon the regular work promptly Tues
day morning, and in order to do this it will be neces
sary to enroll sometime Monday.

to attend any of the exercises of the Institute. If you
happen to be in town come over and make us at least
a short call. A great educator has said "The Normal

events of the year in that county in which it is held."
Send us questions for the question box.
As was stated last year that owing to a small
stitute fund in this county we are obliged to try
make "one dollar do the work of two." Yet it is our
plan to make the work of this institute as far as oud
limited means will allow such as will give to the tea

for their work of the coming school year.

opportunity of thanking you for your hearty co oper
