THURSDAY, JANUARY 2«, 195« _BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NTEWS PAGE FTVB America's First Kindergarten Founded 100 Years Ago Today By F. H. BORDSEN WATERTOWN, Wis. (AP) — One hundred years ago a pretty young immigrant mother sat with her 3-year-old daughter and four other small girls along the Rock River in this southeastern Wisconsin community and began the first kindergarten in America. For Mrs. Carl Schurz, the about* 33, it was a chance to practice theories of education she had learned back in Hamburg. Germany, from Freidrich Froebel, founder or' the kindergarten movement. Her husband, destined to carve a distinguished career as a soldier, journalist and political leader, already was busy in the. af- Jairs of the newly— formed Republican party. v — Yarn Balls group conversed in the children learned The little German as .... colors through use of yarn balls, formed geometric figures with wooden blocks and sang "Mutter Lietier" (songs of mother). Relatives and friends noted the group's frequent meetings and asked that their preschool children be allowed 10 join the sessions Mrs. Schurz then opened a kindergarten in her home. All through this centennial year various Wisconsin educational groups will pay tribute to the woman who brought to this country the idea that little children can learn through play. Kindergartens — the German name for "children's garden"—are now accepted as a vita! part of education. Shortly after organizing her school Mrs. Schurz visited friends in Boston, where she met Miss Elizabeth Peabody, an educator is credited with popularizing the kindergarten. To Milwaukee In 1860 Miss Peabody founded the country's first English-speaking kindergarten. The Schurz family left here in 1858 for Milwaukee. From then until her death in 1876 Mrs. Schurz followed her brilliant husband's many places of residence. Thoug in frail health, she carried the story of the kindergarten to teachers and mothers. The seed planted by Mrs. Schurz took root fast. Soon private kindergartens were set up In New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Milwaukee and. by the 1880s, In most large cities. The first kindergarten to be corporatett into a public school system was at St. Louis in 1873.'

Hf[ — Thirteen- year-old Frankie Eugene Drury is looking forward W four more surgical operations which, doctors tell him, will convert him from a hob- bier to a runner. Four years ago polio left Frankie's back: hunched and one leg longer than the other. He could stand erect only with help. Last wsek Dr. Bryce' B. Blue of Ventura and Dr. W. Sterling Clark Ojai performed tile first of five operations on Frankie in Ventura County General Hospital. It consisted of planting pieces ofi bone from a Los Angeles bone bank { in Frankie's spine vertebrae. The I transplanted bone is expected to' fuse with his back bones and partially correct the spinal curvature. A second similar operation is expected to complete the correction. A third operation will arrest the growth of the unaffected leg to give the stunted leg time to catch up with it. Then will follow two more operations to correct his twisted feet. Frankie, who lives alone with. his mother, will have to spend most of the next year in the hospital. But he is happy about it.
