Who Has Charge of Senior Prepara 4ory Class of Y. M.'C. A. Night School. nation's life and vitality, in the race for dollars, so, through Inadequate schoolinff. the boys of the country are being wasted and quickly thrown on to the junk heap of a purposeless army of unskilled. Their condition 'is dis heartening to themselves and of in calculable loss to the nation. Something - must be done to check this stream of boys leaving school. We are proud of and grateful for our public schools, but more of them speedily should adapt their courses to meet present day needs, give greater attention to holding boys through the earlier years of preparation, provide vocational advice and in other ways attempt to prevent rather than try, late, to cure a most serious evil. The business' and industrial world today calls loudly for skilled workers and pays them in direct proportion to their efficiency. But how can inade quately trained boys attain efficiency? Leaving school early in their teens they are worth but little, have poor foundations upon which to build, drift about aimlessly for years and finally settle where the business or indus trial swirl leaves them. Thus rhey are largely lost as efficient workers for the world's work; industry and business suffer; the nation is robbed of capable citizens before they are of a citizen's age, and they, themselves are doomed to failure and eventually, dependency. The Young Men's Christian Asso ciation night school has been organ ized to meet this need. The work has had a healthy growth In efficiency as well as in activities and enrollment. There are almost -10,000 men and boys studying in this manner throughout the country. The custom of securing live business men as teachers for the working boys has not only brought the boy in con act with the up-to-date business world, but practical education through one who knows through experience. The local Y. M. C. A. has been for tunate in securing for its night school classes for boys the following faculty: Mr. Penn Harvey, who unites with 105 South Palafox-Street his success as an up-to-the-mlnuta business man a college training and teaching ; experience will have charge of the senior preparatory class, which will undertake the work correspond ing to that of the seventh and eighth grades. Mr. Robert Stout, a promising young lawyer and also with university train ing, will be in charge of "the junior preparatory class, which, corresponds to the fifth and sixth grades.-, This work is designed to help the boy attain the equivalent of a gram mar school education. Business, Eng lish, spelling, arithmetic, penmanship, history, geography, etc. will t b In cluded in the curiculum. Prof. Wm. Tyler, assistant princi pal of the high school and head of the commercial work in the same in stitution, will have charge of the com mercial work. The present enrollment far exceeds that of former years. 30c per year. The Special DESIGNER subscription of fer is to be reopened from November 2 to 2ist. Regu lar price, 75c. Everlasting Fabrics Co.

' " FIRST 1EETII1G THE TEACHERS S INTERESTING "PERSONAL IMPROVEMENT OF TEACHERS" THE TOPIC DIS CUSSED OFFICERS ARE ELECT ED. Though no definite programhad been announced, rather a representa tive body of men and women attended the first meeting of the City Teach ers' Association yesterday morning at school No. 1, and the general subject announced by the president aroused an interesting discussion. This was the "Personal Improvement of Teach ers." In presenting it to the associa tion, the president emphasized the ne cessity for such Improvement in order that teachers might become more ef fective directors of child life to the end that not only might the general standard of class work be Improved an d raised, but that a general spirit of co-operation among pupils might be aroused and strengthened to the point where each child might take ale part in upholding order, assisting In the Improvement of school life, and in the meantime of high standards of worS and conduct. By careful per sonal examination teachers might so improve their -own work that they could finally bring about In the pupils under them a, spirit of doing every piece of work, no matter . how ap parently lnsignlftcant. In the very best possible manner, and that m this way there might come Into the lives of Tie children something of real spirit of the true craftsman and along ' with It something of a community spirit that will give everybody in the city the ardent desire to put his shoulder to the wheel and help the city wherever it needs help a , universal "pull-together spirit," that will help this good town to come Into Its own. Following ' the talk of Professor Lane, several of the teachers took up the discussion and devoted swme time to various phases of the question. Prof. D. L. Miine, of the High School,, spoke impressively on the personal care of pupils, as a phase, of the larger question, and the development of backward. pupils Into a better qual ity of workers, as well as the psycho logical effect of grading on, the pupils themselves, putting great emphasis on the importance of recognizing effort as more important than were attain ment. JMlss Pauline Reese," principal of school No.l, brought up again thu general question of school spirit and order, stressing- the value little things In- securing the best conditions and results, the overcoming of results of bad home environment, and sug gested that every teacher should make careful study of the best educational writers on the tquestlona of such nr.at ters in the guiding and development of child life. Mrs. Nannie Thomas, Mrs. A. K." Sater and Miss Maud Su ter took part In the discussion, the following Important points being brought out, that in the grades some of the rudest children come from wbat are regarded as the best homes, and that in the humbler homes It is often the discipline of self-denial that brings out the gold In the character of child hood. ' The following officers were elected to serve for the school year, president, Prof. B. B. Lane; vice-president. Miss Evelyn Thornton; secretary, Miss Ethel Clarke; treasurer. Miss Olive Andrews. The executive committee of the association is composed of the of fl..r. anA the following appointed by the president, Miss Pauline Reese, Mrs. A. K. Suter, and Mrs. O. ?!. McRey nolds; the committee is to hold a meeting at the Grammar School Wed nesday afternoon at 3:45 for the pur pose of planning the year's work. Blanks were ordered printed for requisitions for sick benefits. The association voted to adopt res olutions extending their sympathy to Mrs F". E. Brawner in the death cf her husband, the late chairman of the Board of Public Instruction, and to present to Mrs. Brawner a floral offer ing from the city teachers- The fol lowing committee was appoisfted for this purpose.
