X X I V Horace Maun Pioneer in Education Many people, in fact most people, take our efficient modern public school system for granted. Yet, only a 100 years ago, the schools were not like they are now. Then the rich sent their children to private schools and looked down on common schools. The few public school buildings were cold in winter, small, and stuffy; the books were out of date, and rigid corporal punishment was practiced. Exactly 100 years ago, in 1837, Horace Mann, being elected secretary to the Massachusetts state board of education, set himself the thankless task of reforming the public schools of that state. Tills he did by sheer force o£ personality. Because o£ his leadership, we now have better teachers and better schooihouses all over the nation. "The great' humanitarian and pioneer educational evangelist, Horace Mann, taught the people to cherish and to cultivate that excellence and character without which democracy cannot endure," writes Payson Smith, chairman of the Horace Mann centennial and a successor to Mann for 20 years as commissioner oE education in Massachusetts.--S.

S. wits may well be claimed by ttie air-minded young man who cried "Contact," as "Swede" Rivedal and Barbara Scott went -into a bit o£ osculatory action at operetta rehearsal Tuesday evening. His humor is a bit "Rye" don't you think? You don't suppose the fact that the teachers' convention follows SI. Patrick's day has any bearing on the extensive mottoes in room No. 111? Beautifully done in green and white! And lovely life mottoes! Thanks to our exceptional senior artist, Millie Negomir. Well, grade cards come out ' again Tuesday. {They come out, but tiiey hardly ever raine out right.) If you feel in need of consolation, read this poem, from the "Tower Times," of East high school, Madison, Wis. Mayhap it will divert your thoughts for a time: ''Vou can always I f I I a f r r .
