Tho Stato University has an army of professors who aro anxious to fill com meucomout dates. However, few col logo professors can deliver a real ora tion. In fact, they usually use a man uscript. Some of tho soniors who aro intend ing to teach aro expecting to attend tho Holdrogo Junior Normal School a part of tho summer in order to meet tho requirements of tho now law. If our high school had ono moro teacher, this normal instruction could bo given to tho pupils in the junior and senior yoars along with their regular work.
