ON VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

New Retlremeit Law lor Teadnrs.
Sounding a note of warning against
any tendency to "overdo the vocation
al side of education," Henry R. Pat
tengill, former state superintendent of
instruction In Michigan and editor of
Moderator-Topics, plead for seven
points under his theme, "Hearts of
Health" which will insure a life to
the students as well as a living.
In opening his address which was
delivered before the general assembly
of the North Dakota Educational as
sociation in the Masonic Temple
Thursday forenoon, Mr. Pattengill
first told of the tendency of our fa
ther's and mother's school days when
the academis side of education was
the side most emphasized to the ex
clusion of all training fitting the boy
or girl to gain a livelihood with his
The speaker declared that the sys
tem liad not been altogether bad and
mere bad been much to commend lx.
It has proved its usefulness in a wide
variety of ways, he said. Passing on
present conditions the speaker
pointed out that great strides have
been made in vocational training in
the schools and here he sounded his
note of warning.
"There is danger of over emphasis,"
said the speaker. "In many instances
the vocational work is being given al
-most to the exclusion of the other
work and the boy or girl who is being
fitted to make a living is not being
fitted at all to live a life."
"I pleaded for 'Hearts of Health,' a
system which will make a life as
well as enable the student to make a
living." Under his Hearth of Health
the speaker gave seven points which
he declared deserve attention.

First, the student must be taught to
love labor. The teaching of the dig
nity of labor is incumbent upon the
schools. The second point is an aid to
the first. Teach skill In effort, was
the opinion of the speaker, for in do
ing a thing well, lies the secret of
love of work.
The third point was joy of appre
ciation. Teach the student to love
and understand the beautiful in life.
This leads to higher aspirations and
adds inspiration to what otherwise
would be drudgery. Sensitiveness for
tlie right was tha fourth point under
Hearts of Health. Teachers were
urged to teach love of right doing.
Tenderness of sympathy was the
fifth point. Tenderness points to
the real strong man or woman, said
the speaker. Alertness of intellect
was the sixth point made and the
speaker called attention to the fact
that it was not placed first on the
list. The last point of all was the
power to hold on. This summed up
all the others, said Mr. Pattengill,
and made life worth while.
Previous to the address of the
speaker of the day the business of the
day was carried out. Committee re
ports occupied a considerable portion
of the time. One of the most inter
esting reports was that of the com
mittee appointed to investigate the
retirement fund law of the state.
After going into the existing laws
in other states, the committee mem
bers reported that a form had been
agreed upon which is similar to the
Wisconsin statute and reported that
this law had passed both houses of the
legislature, had been signed and is
therefore a law of North Dakota.
