UlTfiL SUBJECTS TREATED BY MISS Problems Confronting Educators Enumerated by Candidate at Home Club IJieeling Miss Annie Florence Brown, nominee for school director Nb. 8, was the guest of honor and the speaker at a reception and luncheon given b:r the Horn Club ye.iterday afternoon where society and club women greeted the popular candidate. In the course of her address she spoke at length upon the expressions uttered by ex-President Theodore Roosevelt in the Earl lectures given la the Hearst Greek theater recently. "Roosevelt dwelt at length on the fact that California" could ho longer" bring to the other states as an exeua for any failure to acoomplish th best .alms, its youth. He pointed out. not only to the student, but to the parents, that we are no longer in 'the pioneer stage of development; that we are three generations removed from that stage. We could no longer us that' excuse for lack of advancement of educational institutions. We can no longer call for a spirit of toleration from , Eastern states. As we have advanced so rapidly in our , commercial interests, we need no toleration from the other states in that line, and we must, not expect It when It comes' to educational matters. - NEED OF GOOD TIMBER.. v"In order that our "schools may eope with schools of other . ciUea, we .. must place upon our board of education only such persons as are qualified for that important office. We' are no: longer an insignificant hamlet, but busy, active city, with varied interests. That our school may advance in proportion to our other actlvitie. more care must be taken In the choice of our school directors. ' "The schools have grown to such an extent and education ha becomeso complicated that the ' community must demand more of its school directors, and to be successful In that office one should have at least three necessary qualificationseducation, experience and temper, anient. "As th school is the institution whose business it is to give children the education to equip them for servo In life, one must necessarily possess that education himself in order to administer it to others; he- must understand the points it involves from the kindergarten through the university. I do not hold that one must of necessity be university graduate to be a successful eohool director, but I do maintain that he must have had either a university education or Its equivalent to accomplish the highest good in the educational work of his community. EXPERIENCE NEEDED. "The second qualification for a successful school director is experience. By experience I do not necessarily mean actual teaching in the school room, which, however, I consider Invaluable, If it can be had without the exclusion of a broader view of life. Experience in educational matters means not only a knowledge of all topic that touch the lives of growing children, but It means a keen insight into the vital problem endangering th moral conditions of the boys and girls, o soon to be the men and women of th next generation. "Th third qualification is temperament. By temperament X mean not only understanding and sympathy with "-eHl educational problems, but time to devote to the solving of such problems, and willingness to give that time to look pet sonally into all school affairs. This w4H often have to be done at the sacrifice jot social functions and other person 1 pleasures. . t WOMAN IS HELPFUL Tt Is her that I think a woman can be helpful to the mothers of the community, and should I have the honor to be elected one of your school directors I should think it a privilege if you. would consider me as a medium of , communication - between the mothers and the school authorities. "In order that we may be more help- m l ;' fr r M. F. BROVJH ful f.o each other I will enumerate briefly five topics of educational interest that are now being discussed by the thinking t people of this community, and will doubt less have to be discussed by i ur own board of education. The topics are Kindergartens, intermediate high schools, problems of co-education l high schools, teaching of ! sexual : physiology . tn our schools, need of more practical training for the boys and girls who are going inT to business. - PART OF SYSTEM. "The tonio of kindergartens ia being discussed with great interest in this community. Ehould we make them a part of our public school system? Some effort has already been made in this direction. If the young child is to begin his education in the kindergarten, should that department not be under the .same executive board that supervises the remainder ef his school training? ' This plan met with success; when introduced elsewhere. Or should we continue to maintain by private subscriptions, as we have been doing? This is a matter of importance to the mothers cf this community, a matter that they should think of and discuss. ; "By the intermediate high school Is meant that gathering together -of the seventh, eighth and ninth grades into a system like our high school. A few advantages of Jhia system are these: The beginalng of modern languages and manual training j under competent teacher; also the bringing of the- vast difference between th grammar and high schools. SOME OBJECTIONS. "Some of the objections may be th extra cost of! additional expert teachers; the temporary upsetting of our present grammar school system and the taking of time from the fundamental studies. These I bring as a mere suggestion. "As to eo-edueation during the high school age there is much to be. said on both sides of this question. The main object of a school should be to train for life. TheiJif. of a girl and the life of a boy is to be vary different, "The boy, when he ha attained manhood, must be prepared to support his family. One of the first requisites of a successful man Is that h shSuld be a good provided. The very fact of his going tnto business for this purpose gives him opportunity to come In touch with the great, problems of life, to develop his mental capacity and the dignity of his character. 1 j. AVENUES OF. KNOWLEDGE. . "Th girl will not have this same opportunity after ending her school days; therefore many avenues of knowledge muse be opened to her during her school years Permanent Interests ia life must be awakened In her during that time. She must be prepared to be not ' only a , helpful i member of her community, but the central power of her home, . the Intelligent ; guardian of her child. Can this be accomplished best for her in a co-educatlonal - school? From a moral standpoint, does the continual association of boys and girls in the high school age, during hours of study and play, develop our strongest men and women? Is It true that the grlris have an uplifting influence upon the boys? -! - "Would . 'separating them atf this age make our- girls weak, and insipid women? Our boy, awkward and ill-mannered men? It Is a topic worthy of our consideration. TOUCHES THE HOME. "The Mbject dealing with the physiology in our schools is one of vital Importance because it touches the" home. It is true that the Immorality that sometimes exists among girls and boys of an early age Is greatly due to Ignorance of the laws of nature? Huxley, the great scientist, who devoted much of his .time and knowledge gained from 'original r- search to uplifting the moral condition said, knowledge of the facts of -science Is the soundest basis for moral law! "It seemed to me that the place' to teach tbis was In the sacredness ef the home, from her, who should be to. the child the greatest of teachers his mother. But If It is not being done there, where shall it be done If not in the school? i . ' : "Are we to send the girls and boys Into a world se full of pitfalls with no knowledge of this subject, or to gain a knowl edge of it in a vulgar way? Would the teaching of sexual physiology. Jn the school perhaps awaken In the young mind a morbid curiosity that would other wise not be there? Let us give heed to this question. . which is awakening interest not only Among th greatest ed- Lucators but the leader In th pulpit. ' HIGHER THINGS OF LIFE. "Are we giving insight into some of the higher things of life? Are .we showing them that education means not only making a living, but the making of a life? - Are w , best - fitting the girl for her duty in life? Although many who do not go ta college may earn their living for a few years, they ultimately marry. Have we helped these girls to become better wives stnd mothers? Could we not do more to make them a higher type of womanhood, a more intelligent factor In the home, a more valuable member of society? Could they not be taught In th home, a more valuable member in society?, - Could they not be taught a broader domestlo , science, including not only household sanitation, but 'the ar-UstJo arrangement of the home? Would pot a course In simple nursing b helpful? -V "The complicated life of today-; call for more attributes In a successful woman that it did a few years ago. CoUer will not only lengthen her happy dxa, but it will keep her body well, as th5T is no greater stimulus to good health? than a mind kept busy with noble wort. It win change and broaden her ideals , of manhood and womanhood. College days are not days of mere book -learning,- "iut associations" with great living mind,- It win rive her higher and mors perrs' fcent In terests In her later life. It wf develop in her a spirit of helpfulness, jj i.onlx in the home,; but In th community It s will teach her that a woman's life should be that of service; her mission, to tnlnister, rather than to be ministered tc.'
