Dave had worked during the summer in a grain cleaning firm using an electrical process, and business was such that he decided to devote his full time to the enterprise. Mercer Offered College Post At Beloit, Wisconsin Kenneth Mercer, local athletic coach for the past three years, has been offered a position at Beloit College, Beloit, Wis. Mercer would also have a chance while there to work on his master's degree, which is something he has desired to obtain for some time. Although he had signed his new contract for the local school system, it was understood that the school board would release him if he desired to go to Beloit. The board has made it a policy never to stand in the way of any teacher who has a chance for advancement. The Long Run It's cheaper to start him out this fall in goods shirts that are pre-shrunk, have fast color and have plenty of smart style.

O. 11 LAlNii, Supt. McGuffey Reader Paid High Tribute By Local Writer In the August 7 issue of the Des Moines Register appears a letter from Fred Anderson to Harvey Ingham on the McGuffey school books. It may be a series of books can not always remain in our schools, but McGuffey readers under revisions weathered the efforts of mercenary and ambitious people to replace them for over fifty years, and are the only series that have lived in the remembrance of those who used them in school. As Mr. Anderson says in Ms letter, there are many lessons in McGuffey's readers that hang in the memory with as great tenacity as texts from the Bible. As a matter of fact It could not be otherwise since the selections were chosen and written with a view to developing moral character. Moral character was not alone the aim of the author. The blood of youth was made to tingle with patriotism and love of country by deeds and events of heroism portrayed on a mental screen. The love for mother, and the conduct of the Good Samaritan were woven in among other selctions to entertain, instruct, and impress the student. And that they did so Impress is evidenced by the respect and praise accorded the author by so many students who were privileged to read from those books in the formative period of school life. The folly of pride as personified by Miss McBrlde, as she minced along in fashion's tide, downC^iroad- way on the proper side. The egotism of the Freshman who had ne'er before set foot upon a foreign shore, And the Englishman who sought to make sport of his valet at dinner and found his well-deserved rebuke. In short the characteristics of mankind were all set before the student in such variety of prose and poetry as to hold his attention and impress their meaning. Is it saying too much to say of our present school readers that they Inspire no high ambitions, teach no moral or spiritual truths, tench no lesson of the Good Samaritan, and leave all the Mirny bumps of pride, egotism, intolerance and other undesirable attributes of man sticking to the trunk? We have substituted manual for moral training. The kind of moral training contained In Mc- Guffey'a readers contained no denominational dogma but reached out for that liberal interpretation contained in the injunction of Christ to "Go thy way and sin no more."—S.
