'l'he pupils are preparing ; - ing Nebraska wood charts. 'he 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 grow. 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 small ones. Dist. No. 20-A.E.
