New York, Oct. 22. What I have
done la caused entirely by two
things. The first is Horace Mann.
From 'the kindergarten' until the
Wesent day I. have had 'the good
fortune of being in' contact with
1 remarkably good teachers. Al
ready, while still in . kindergarten,
the project method was impressed
upon me. For instance, we were
all asked to walk like bears, and
that afternoon found me in front
of the bears' den in the zoo. If
we were studying birds, esquimos
or Indians, ! was down at the Nat
ural History museum. During all
these years of elementary work I
spent two days a week, at the Met
ropolitan Museum of Art At 6 I
waa admitted as a regular student
in the roof school of Horace Mann.
For several years I worked among
the clouds. ' Sometimes the tem
perature was 6 degrees below zero.
To this fact of working out of doors
I attribute the ability to complete
several grades in one year. - .
When the teacher called for. au
tomobile clippings I went to De
troit and Ford's factory was open
to me. When we were studying the
stockyards I went to Chicago, but
in the sixth grade I was made des
perate. - We were to make a boat
that year. I had visions of failure.
But I could learn how it was done.
I went to Pittsburgh and saw the
tuquesne steel plant
When we studied the beginning
of the revolution I took charge of
the troops with- Washington under
the Elm in Cambridge, visaing
Longfellow's house at the' same
time. I Joined the minute men at
Lexjta kd Concord. I eaw the
elfry tower where Pert
hung ct Ms lantern. I ;
ker JEW, Where battle wa towht
on the ftjurtrersary of my birth. Of
coure L-faad previously stood on
Plymouth Rock. - . t
Thraa Mnnta time t went into
Virginia, visiting Jamestown. When
we studied the Crvll war i weni
down to Richmond and waa thewa
how it held a strong position on
Its plateau.;. I saw the place where
the Monitor and the Merrimachad
their engagement . Finally there
came that great visit to Gettysburg,
which I shall always remember.
CMcs! 1 went three times to
Washington, .eaw both houses of
congress In session and shook
hands with President Wilson when
he was not speaking to ether peo
ple. I went to our state legislature
Just in time to see both senators
and assemblymen rushing for the
quarter of five train. I visited the
board of estlmatea and Apportion
ments, the board of alderman and
even helped to install Mayor Hy
land. - '
During my high , school course,
which occupied the full four years,
there wasn't. time for many Jour
neys, but when we were talking
about the Panama canal at school
I' went unto Troy and saw a ship
go through the locks, -which are
only four feet lower than, those at
Panama. . But the greatest trip of
sail was -my Journey to Denver in
11918 to" see the great eclipse. Oh,
how good it was even to atand on
the, ooservatory. grounds, and what
'feelings came over me when the
! sun was blotted out . '
The-two great factors helping me
in dome what little I have done
i were Horace Mann school and ihe
; applying of . the project method
which I learned there.
