ARCADIA HIGH SCHOOL NOTES me
On Monday morning for chapel Mr ag
Wagner gave a brief report of his en
joyable trip to New Orelans, making pr
special mention of the State Teach
er.' Association. This being one of
the best attended of any ever held
in the state. Every prgoram was made
interesting as well as highly instrcet
ive. The addresses given by Dr. M.
S. Pittman of the Michigan State
Normal and Mr. Magill, Field Secre- Al
tary for the National Educational As
sociation, were well worth the effort l1
put forth to hear them., 1
The program of greatest interest to nl
people of this parish was that of the di
Rural School Department, the presi.
dent of which was Supt. E. H. Fisher
For two years or more Mr. Fisher
has had charge of this feature of the
work of the association and has taken
t great deal of interest in it. This
being one of the lines of work in his G
own parish where it has been very ri
successful. In the opening address
of this meeting Mr. Fisher spoke so
ably in behalf of this phase of educa
tion in Louisiana that he reflected
great credit to himself, to Blenville S
parish where he has worked so faith .
fully for so many years and also tc
the cause of education in Louisiana.
The first number on this program
was an address by Prin. J. P. Wagnei
on "The New Course of Study from
the Teacher's Point of View." With
years of college training followed by
the rich experiences of a successful
teacher and principal. Mr. Wagner
was fully capable of discussing this
subject and did it so well that he re
ceived the highest approval of those
who heard him. The school and the
town feel justly proud of their
representative to the State Teachers'
Association and aprpeciate his efforts
in doing his very best on this great
occasion, as well as on every other
that has for its ultimate result the
improvement of conditions for the boys
and girls of Arcadia and Bienville par.
The boys have perfected the organ
ization of their base ball team with
the following ofilcers: L. C. Aycock
captain; Ralph Goff, secretary and
treasurer; Mr. Wagner, manager
Boys are always interested in base I
'ball and all they need is the proper
amount of encouragement and they I
will get the practice they need, and I
best of all the best and most whole
some exercise for them. They want
the people of the town, who have
donated so liberally to elp equip the
team, to know how very much this
is appreciated by everyone of them
'The interest taken by the town in this
and similar school activities is deeply
appreciated by Mr. Wagner and his
