S. students were beginning our education in the kindergarten. That institution is a direct descendant of t h e "Kleinkinderbeschaftigung- sanstalt or small-children-occupation-institute," founded by Friedrich Froebel in Blankenburg, Prussia, in 1837. In spite of its name it-existed three years as such and then Froebel "shouted for joy" when the word, kindergarten, for "the youngest child of his brain flashed upon him." When the Prussian edict of 1851 closed his kindergartens, he began at once to plan for the transference of his work to America where, he said, "a new life is Ireely unfolding itself and a new education of man will find a footing." However, Froebel's death in 1852 defeated his goal of seeing the first kindergarten opened in America. Nevertheless, in 1855, Mrs. Carl Schurz, having carried on, saw to it that the first one was opened, and the movement has gone steadily forward with Patty Hill blazing the way.

The year 1937 also,marks the opening Mary Lyon of the school which was to develop into Mount Hol- oke college, the first venture of Is kind. The kindergarten was not Herr froebel's first venture into the educational field, but rather the fruit of his mature years. In the year 1B51 he was heart jroken when he heard of (he ilosing o£ all his kindergartens jy the arbitrary Prussian edict, -towever, he made plans of trans- erriiig his work to America. The irst kindergarten was opened 82 years later on American soil by Mrs. Carl Schurz. Mary C. Shuts, professor of kindergarten education at Teachers college in the city of Boston, and a .member - of the kindergarten centennial celebration committee of the Association for Childhood "Sducation, says, "Kindergarten vork has gone steadily forward, n spite of the great - difficulties entailed in its transplanting on American soil, in spite of the bar iers in the translation of Froebel's nvolved German, in spite of the imited training of many of those vho sought to interpret 'the new education,' in spite of the en- renched convictions, not yet conquered that the earliest years will ake care of themselves and that myone can teach the smallest hildren." --N.
