aminations were memory tests. China
has that system yet, hence the back
wardness of China. Just as China
has failed to measure up with strong

measure up with other pupils in high
er grades, if he is taught to use ver
bal memory where he ought to think
I am moved to make these remaii:s
because examination is approaching.
and it will not consist of memory
tests where thinking .s necessary. It
is not so much WHAT they do, as
HOW they do it. That is whv I urge
the duty of subjects, reasoning, and
the constant applcation of the know
ietue gained, more man mere repe
tition and Imagination.
Just here, I want to say, that much
home study by children, too often re
suits in memorizing things they do
not understand, and too much help-
so mucn carrying them that they do
not learn to stand alone.
This leaves out of consideration the
additional fact that growing children
need rest and relaxation, and that par
ents and teachers should not move ex
cessive demands on them.
I want to add, that I would not
hitch a young colt to a heavy log-wag
on, nor a young child to heavy school
work. In either case arrested devel
opment results somewhere along the
line, and. In either case, load or team
will almost invariably be left behind
In bringing about these changes
which I consider to be for the be3t
interests of the schools, I am trying to
make myself felt, rather than seen.
I am trying to le to every teacher
a courteous and considerate director,
rather than an exacting taskmaster.
The teachers are responding nobly.
and the schools are improving.
In the further improvement of the
schools, and curing ailments due in
a large measure to causes which I
have mentioned, I i.sk the cordial as
sistance of the people of Bryan.
