Training course of Ocean Springs Hlch
School was organized last year, and the
cnaracter of the work done met with
such unanimous approval by the stu
dents that Prof. Mauls has been encour
aged to make the course broader and
more comprehensive with a view of ed
ucating (not merely cramming up for ex
aminations) the teachers on the sub
jects taught in the public schools.
The great trouble with normals and
institutes and traiulng schools for teach
ers Is, the time is too short, a person can
not discipline the mind and form habits
or study and culture in a few weeks.
That thing has been tried by the three
months commercial schools. It requires
time and diligent study to learn the sub
jects of history, civics, physiology,
grammar and arithmetic. And then
when a student has learned a subject
well enough to answer the questions
and stand an examination, in many
cases he is not competent to teach it.
ith all these things in view tho
training course of the Ocean Springs
High School has been broadened to cov
er the entire session's work. Prof. Sauls
has arranged a course for the teacher to
