pupils are taking quite an inter-
cst in singing.Ve have had
only seven tardy marls. The
teacber report that she is well
pleased with the school.
't ' his year the schools of Richardson -
ardson county require 152 teachers -
ers of this number 27 arc b'gin-
ncrs. Last year just 100 of these
changed teachcrs. TIQs year 83
of the schools changed teachers.
'rhis is a nice improvement but
, still we have too many changes.
Such a change in leadership
would ruin any business and no
corporation would think of chang-
ing employes every yea- . A
teacher should bc able to take
charge of his school as a pastor
takes charge of his church , with
the intention of staying with it
for several years , to build it up
and be happy in watching it
Pictures in thc school room are
an in spiration to the pupils and
teachers and a source of educat-
ion as well. They are silent but
powerful and constant educational -
al forces. Think of the time
that is spent bj' the average child
in school and think of the refin-
ing influence iJ the rooms are
filled with beautiful picturcs.
It is not always possible to have
your school building just as you
would have it but it is always
possible to make the rooms at-
tractive. The subject of picture
study has been presented in our
last two institutes in order to as-
sist teachers and pupils to appreciate -
preciate the true , the beautiful
and the good in the great pictures
the masters have given us. Yes ,
decorate your school room and
have at least a few good pictures
on the wall. Use a few good
pictures of fairly good size rather
then a great number of. very
