old-time schoolroom into . a restful,!
interesting, classroom. She empha
sized the point that a child must take
. ....... j j i ,..-; k
sized the point that a
o.iri ' w!
not dictated, that when a pupil is in
terested in his work discipline is un
necessary, that the day for the rigid
displinarian is past, and that often a
change U position from the tiresome
hard seat, which formerly graced (?)
our school. -oc-ms a pupil could and
would be relaxed and rested and do
better wopL.
She cited many interesting in -
. . ,J , u

the character and development of

Her ta'.ic was sensible and practical
and at the close of the address the
president s-uggested that the motherrs
present could apply the same princi
ples in home training of their children
and quoted a remark made by a
mother who had raised a large family,
"If I v-ai tc live my life over again
I would leave out the word 'don't,'
and 'do' t r.d encourage my children
to be mere self-reliant and depend
less on my judgment and more on
their own i- determining their daily
problem?.'
RESOLUTIONS
Adopted by the State Board of Health
on Dr. Caverly's Death
At a meeting of the State Board of
Health and laboratory staff held at
the office of the secretary at Burling
ton, November 8, the following reso
lution was adopted:
The death of Dr. Charles S. Caver
ly, occurring at his home in Rutland,
on October 16, 1918, has broken our
Board by removing one who for
twenty-seven years has Served as its
president, and whose place can never
be filled.
Dr. Caverly's sterling worth of
character, strong' personality and
professional ability made him a
strong tower on whom we were accus
tomed to lean and his judgment on
the v-arious perplexing matters which
came up for decision was unvaryingly
sound and good. He was always pro
gressive, i'.r.d to him must be credited j
a large share of the advanced legisla
tions and public health regulations
which have made Vermont a recog
nized leader among the states of the
Union. His. studies of communicable
diseaie, especially poliomyelitis and
tuberculosis, gave him an honored
place nmong the foremost national
medical authorities..
Realizing our loss, we desire to ex
press our sincere sympathy to Mrs.
Caverly and his many friends and
hereby order that this resolution be
entered in the minutes of this board
and a copy sent to the family of Dr.
Cavei'ly rnd published in the press
of the stete.
