SYNOPSIS OF
FREELftNDS LEC
TURE TO TEACHERS
The following la a synopsis of Dr
Freelands lectures to teachers in
Graham County Institute held here
last month
Although Dr Freeland brought to
the Graham County Teachers Insti
tute a number of wholesome and prac
tical Ideas bearing directly on school
betterment probably the most lnter
opting was his Idea of how to improve
the school morale
It Is woll known that there Is In
general throughout tho west a wo
ful lack ot cooperation between the
fJl lackof5 cooperation betweenuio
teachers and trustees and also be
tween teachers and patrons This
fact alone is responsible for much of
lono for fear that their faults will be ruled

DEBATING CONTE8T
Friday afternoon Mrs C V Mc
Cluro and Prof Rice and the two
young ladles Misses Wilma Weaver
and Vera Moody who were chosen to
represent the Safford High School in
a debating contest to be held In
Miami Saturday night left for that
city
The question for debate was Re
solved That further legislation to
restrict immigration into the United
States is Injurious to tho industrial
development ot the country tSaf
ford defended the affirmative Bide
Miami the negative and was repre
sented by Misses Lucille Stone
and Clara
discovered Thoy therefore dlscour 1 ford young
ago visitors whether fellow teachers
principal or trustees or patrons
Teachers do not do this openly nor
Dr Freeland would solve this
lem In two ways First a better atti
tude on the part of teachers them
selves He showed clearly that the
allwlse toacber Is not only an im
possibility but a very undesirable
teacher ns well Though the teachor
has already made preparation and
gone over tno worn yet sue must
continue to study with the pupils
lachers and schools aro no longer
considered as fact dispensaries but
as laboratories where live commun
ity problems aro worked out and
plans laid for real work in tho llvoa
of the boys and girls
Furthermore wo arp coming to
look upon tho school moro as social
center that Is In that it is free from
formality and rigidity so that boys
and girls may act perfectly natural
and still bo quite In harmony with
the teacher and tho rules A group
of workmen on a Job In actual life
would bo seriously handicapped by
enforcing upon them many ot the
rules and regulations that students
havo to meet In school Whon wo
can really go about our school work
as any ordinary group of professional
workmen would go about n piece ot
work then wo will not only get moro
doue but wo will bo more happy and
grow moro whllo we are doing It
Tho following terso quotations aro
nxnreslve ot tho message Dr
Freeland brought to ub and they may
RNUM
ladles they having
lng made a strong argument tor their
side of the question
The debate was preceeded by a
usually purposely but they do not short musical program The
l
really make an effort to get visitors ers of both teams their coaches and
to call This attitude has no doubt several faculty members were enter-
been a block to the development of
school morale within the school as
woll as in tho community for the
school
