The junior English classes hnve bren studying the poems of noted American authors for the last few w-eks The three poems that seemed to interest them most and which they wrr? asked to compare and contrast r.rr. "To a Waterfowl." by Brvant: ' The Chambered Nautilus." bv Holmes and "Song of the Chattahoochee." by Linier. In all of these poems is the ^pli- cation of the events in nature to the larger problems in our even- dav life, and the inspiration to strive forward. "To a Waterfowl" was written when the author was alone in the world— without family, friends, or money, and in the face of failure. He found inspiration in the picturesque flight, of a duck valiantly winging its way in the sunset, guided by an unseen power. This poem teaches that with faith in God. we can BO on and accomplish things in the face of great odds.

The poet, as he wrote the poem had an empty shell before him. which had been cut open to show the chambers. The les;on th-<t Holmes learned from the shell, and that we learn from his poon is that when one phase of our life is over it is in the past and we should be moving forward, living in the present always. We should not be content to live in one small compartment all of our lives, but should develop and »x- pand, seeking higher ideals. "The Song of the Chattahoochee" was written to show the true rythm of poetry and contains a beautiful narrative of a river, flowing "Out of the hills of Habersham, Down the valleys of Hall." The beauty of nature begs the river to loiter, but it must always be going on, following the call of duty. This teaches that we have our duty to perform and that we must not loiter and yield to temptation while doing this duty. The merry song of the river lightens its burden of duty, just as the joys of nature can lighten our duties. These poems, the expressions o! the author's feelings when In communion with nature, leave with us the knowledge that, though we may be tired and weary working through life, if we have faith we can and must go on, leaving the past behind us and ever seeking new and higher levels. Each of these poems teaches the s,ame lessons but with the aid of a different phase of nature, as an example, the duck, the nautilus, the river—all nature's children, representing us as does the model for the engineer's product.

X | Early in October, 1830, thf first school building in Iowa was dedicated to the preparation of Iowa vouth for loima ciUzenship. The btill.Hn* was a rude, rough, log cabin situated in a clearing on the bank of the Mississippi river. To the west lay timber clad hills and a small creek helped to "fence" the school yard. Today there are 12.133 school buildings of many different types. In many places beautiful brick buildings and attractive well kept lawns greet the pupils, giving evidence of the growing interest In this field. From this simple beginning in 1830, one room rural schools, two room rural schools, consolidated schools, village and city grade and high schools, colleges and universities have developed in Iowa, proving that education is held In high regard by Iowa citizens. With this expansion of educational facilities has also come a deep and growing interest in the qualifications of those in charge of such institutions, those to whom are entrusted the training of the youths of our country—the teachers. In the humble beginning in 1830 It is doubtful If the teacher had more than completed the eighth grade and the salary probably consisted of board and lodging in the various homes of. the community with possibly an additional offering of fuel, grain, or foodstuff?. This would hardly fulfill the highest ideals of an ambitious person, so this field was usually soon deserted for a more remunerative and satisfactory calling Today, however, requirements for securing a legal teacher's certificate are quite exacting, and will be even more so if the bill which is to be presented to the present Iowa legislature, should be passed. Rural tepchers should have at least high school education plus normal training work in high school or an additional twelve weeks of such training in an accredited college. Most of our grade teachers must have at least two years of educational work and the ordinary high school course. The majority of our high school teachers are required to have a four year college degree and junior colleges require the teachers to have a fifth year of special training or a master's degree. Needless to say, this increasing demand for special training necessitates a considerable outlay of money before one is able to draw even the minimum salary as a teacher, which today is fifty dollars per month on the lowest grade certifcate, issued in Iowa, and one hundred twenty dollars on the highest grade. However, this has also served to hold many in the profession who might otherwise have made teaching a stepping stone to some other line of work. Better positions in the field of teaching are usually open to those who continue special training and who have records of successful experienc. So teaching has become one of the leading professions of this age and we flnd MWjLde7otuagk-4i0t.,0ne or two years Foster's FEBRUARY Furniture Sale NOW ON Dining Room Suites Take a Deep Price Cut One of the most sensational feature values of this astounding sale.
