just how the matter was handled here.
After seeing the place they were high
in their praise of the local method

FOR S.T. COLLEGE
The fall quarter of the State Teach
ers College will open on Tuesday, Oc
tober 3d. Beginning with this quar
ter the institution will have full hour
recitation periods, will have a stand
ard unit of credit, the quarter hour,
'and an improved plan of practice
teaching in the Training School.
Heretofore students have done their
practice teaching for one period a day
during two quarters of the year. Be
ginning with the coming quarter stu
dents will, after having taken a
course in observation preliminary to
practice teaching, spend a half day
for one quarter of twelve weeks in
the Training School instead of a sin
gle recitation period as heretofore^
It is believed that this will not only
add to the value of the practice teach
ing from the standpoint of the stu
dent teacher, but will also increase
the effectiveness of the work in the
Training School from the standpoint
of the children enrolled there, as it
will give a greater continuity to the
work of the student teachers.
The entire faculty for the college
has been selected, and there will be
eleven new teachers here for the open
ing of the school year. In the art
department a teacher has been added.
iss Olga Stevning, who took Miss
I Deem's place in the art department
during her leave of absence two
years ago, will be the additional
teacher. Miss Stevning is a graduate
of the College, and has had several
years of experience in teaching art.
During the past year she was super
visor of art in the public schools of
Owatonna, Minnesota. She will give
practically all of her time to the
Training School, and this plan will
add greatly to the attractiveness of
the several grades of the Training
Because of the increased enroll
ment an additional teacher has been
secured for the department of educa
tion and psychology. Mr. J. M. Mc
Callister, a young man who is a grad
uate of the Teachers College at War
rensburg, Missouri, and has a -Mas
ter's degree from the University of
Chicago, will be the new teacher in
The department of hygiene and phy
sical education loses Miss Cranz for
the coming year, as she has been
given leave of absence for study at
^Vumb'a University. Her place will
ba l:en temporarily by Miss Vivien
Chrlsticr.son, a graduate of the Col-
I lege in the class of 1922.
Miss Paula M. Kittel, of the Eng
lish department, has been granted
leave of absence for a year of study,
and will probably go to the University
of California. Her work will be taken
over by other teachers in the depart
ment, since the first year of prepara
tory work is being dropped and wiljr
not be offered for the coming year. A
new teacher is being added to the de
partment of English. Miss Marion
D. Robb, a graduate of the State
Teachers College of Winona, Minne
sota, and of the Leland Powers School
of the Spoken Work, Boston, has been
employed as teacher of expression
and dramatics. Miss Robb has taught
her chosen subject in the Teachers
Colleges of Winona and Moorhead,
Minnesota, and during the past year
has done special work in her line at
the University of Minnesota. The ad
dition of courses in expression will
be a popular thing among the stu
dents, and will attract a number of
people to the college who are inter
ested in dramatics and expression.
The conservatory of music will
have two new teachers. One is Mr.
Adrian Pouliot, who takes the place
of Mr. Kemp, who has left the Col
lege to take a position in a music
school in Duluth. Mr. Pouliot has a
Bachelor's degree music from the
University of Kansas, and a diploma
from a French conservatory, having
spent the past year in foreign study.
The other new teacher is Mrs. Flor
ence Hedstrum Morsbach, who is not
new to Valley City and College peo
ple, as she left the College only two
years ago after having taught voict*
in the conservatory with remarkable
success. Mrs. Morsbach returns to
the institution after two years of
training in Chicago and Naples, Italy.
At Naples she studied under one of
the greatest teachers in Italy, if not
on the continent of Europe, and Mrs.
Morsbach is said by competent critics
to be one of the best exponents of the
Italian Bel Canto ever trained by her
Because of the resignation of Miss
Crane, who goes to the public library
of Detroit, Michigan, after several
years of service here as head libra
rian, Miss Mathilde Maier has been
employed as assistant librarian, Miss
Crane's place being taken by Miss
Bess Lowry who has been connected
with the College for the past three
years. Miss Maier is a graduate of
the Peabody College for Teachers at
Nashville, Tenn., having a Bachelor's
degree from that institution. She has
had special library training at Nash
ville and in the University of Texas,
and has had considerable practical ex
perience in library work.
During the absence of Miss Brun
ner, head critic of the junior high
school, who has been granted leave
of absence for one year of study in
Ohio State University, Miss Harriet
L. Winn will be the supervisor of the
junior high school. Miss Winn has a
Bachelor's degi'ee from Goucher Col
lege, Baltimore, and a Master's de
gree from Columbia University. The
assistant critic of the junior high
school will also be new, due to the
fact that Miss Osbom.. last year's cri
tic, was recently married and so is
not remaining with the College. Miss
Luella J. Hall, a graduate of the Col
lege in 1912, who has the B. A. and
M. A. degrees from the University of
North Dakota, will be the new assist
ant critic in the junior high school.
Because of the resignation of Miss
Bone, who left at the end of this year
to take a position in the Teachers Col
lege at Moorhead, Miss Lillian E.
Dunning has been selected fev the po
sition of assistant critic in grades
five and six of the Training School.
Miss Dunning has the B. S. degree
from the University of Missouri, and
has had several years of teaching ex
Another new teacher is Miss Tena
Anderson, who has been selected to
offer courses in observation prelimin
ary to the actual work of teaching in
the Training School. Miss Anderson
comes to the College with a Master's
degree from the University of Minne
sota, and with several years of suc
cessful teaching experience.
Preparations are being made at the
College for a record breaking enroll
ment. All indications point to a de
cided increase over the very large en
rollment of last year. All dormitory
rooms were engaged many weeks ago,
and more prospective students have
been refused admission to the dormi
tories than the number that can be
accommodated in them. It will be
necessary for the people of Valley
City to open their homes very gener
ously if the college enrollment is tak
en care of, and it is hoped that resi
dents of the city, particularly those
living in the section of town near the
College, will help the institution ami
those who come here to attend it by
renting rooms wherever it is at all
possible to do so.
With the clock hour recitation per
iod, the quarter hour unit of credit,
the abandonment of the first year of
preparatory work, the new additions
to the teaching force, and the bright
prospect of a great enrollment, Col
lege authorities look for the greatest
enr in the history of the institution.
