Air Smith is one of the best known educators in the United States, and an acknowledged expert on educa tional subjects. The Chamber of Commerce was particularly fortunate in bringing him to Bridgeport as this Is practically the first time he has evr addressed a gathering in this section of the state. Several unsuc ccLsful attempts had previously been maJe to bring tx'm to Bridgeport, out at the recent convention "f the L'.'.ied Ftatea Chamber of '0 nraerce in Bridgeport, he was persuaded by Sec retary Seward B. Price to speak I e-tor- a local audience. Mr. Smith is a graduate of the I'niversity of Maine, and was first ap pointed instructor of CSreek at West brook Seminary in Maine. Later he became principal of the High school and superintendent of schools at Can ton. Me., and a few years later super intendent of schools in Auburn. He left his office in Auburn to accept the post of superintendent of public schools for the etate of Maine, re maining in that post until 1917 when he was appointed Commissioner of Education for the State of Massachu setts. He spoke to the Chamber of Com merce members on the problems to day confronting the educators of the country, and told of the difficulties that are rapidly being overcome by the new system of education, and its preference to the old-fashioned plan. "There are a large number of spe cial days forced upon the schools." he declared this noon. "It might be well to have a fv such days as his tory days, geography days. arithme tic days, and Knelling days that the children miht be reminded that these subjects are still included in the ed ucational program of the schools. "In the elementary grades. we ought to give the child the mastery of .the tools of education so that he will "oe able afterwards to fashion his own building. L ?t us reduce the work here to the fundamentals and estab lish in the child right habits, . for Character after all i what we are teaching the child and character is n assemblage of right habits. "Above the sixth grade, we are to provide for a differentiation in the subjects taught as they relate to the different boys and girls. "VVe are not giving taem a chance when we try to make them all alii ft They must be taught according to their individual needs and if you want to find the needs of a boy you must look within him. A class cannot be graded ac cording to tiie average boy. It is a mistake to try to standardize in our education. "The question is often raised as to whether too much is being crowded into our course of study. If we ex pect every boy and girl to master the whole system, we have too much, but if we allow them to specialize in those subjects for which they are best adapted and fit-the system to the in dividual needs, then we have not too much. Our object should be the de velopment of personal power. "We ought to be impressed with the educative value of work. We make a mistake when we give in any way the impression that work is be neath any boy or girl. Lot us look forward to the time when a diploma rill not be given in the higher schools until a boy has done some kind of lucrative ana productive work, not until a girl has developed some talent in home-making courses. "The crowning teaching of all is that of the right spirit of American- MA Mr. J. Albert Johnson who for thirty-four years was man ager of the Watch Repairing De partment of G. W.
