well organised for > the Kosslona
Wednesday ovonlng and Thursday
morning trains greatly augmented the
number qf teachers In Norfolk. All
received a hearty welcome In the city
The high school students , whose
streamers lent an additional touch ol
color to Norfolk avenue Wednesday
arc gone , but Thursday added some 20C
more teachers to the city's guests.
The first general session of the as
sociutlon wan hold Wednesday after
noon In the Methodist church auditor !
um , the number of teachers presonl
surpassing the usual first day attend
ance. The general session Thursdaj
and Friday morning occur In the Nor
folk Auditorium. The twenty-first an
nual meeting of the North Nebraska
Teachers' association was opened by
Rev. J. L. Vallow Invoking the divine
blessing on the visiting teachers.
Superintendent Harry Hooper of
Oakdalo read the first paper presented
to the association. Discussing means
of Increasing high school attendance ,
Mr. Hooper advocated class organiza
tions that give a sense of responsibil
ity to the students , good laboratory
facilities that hold the Interest of the
students In their work , eighth grade
teachers minded to Interest their pu
pils In the advanced work and above
all a superintendent or principal able
to feel and show a personal Interest
In each pupil. In discussion Miss Flor
ence Donclson of Norfolk urged that
It fell upon both grade and , high school
teacher to overcome indifferent Influ
ences of homo and street.
The place of the sciences in Incul
cating living truth was urged by Rob
ert Thomson of Randolph In a paper
on "Nature Study. " H. II. Hickman of
Wausa said that the real alms of na
ture study should be to show not ma
terial things but the Immaterial
thought of God behind all nature. Miss
Mao Beck wanted nature study to bo
given a practical bend. It should not
bo taught , she said , under the name
of nature study but should bo used In
connection with other studlts to lend
new Interest to the subjects.
Discussing the arguments for and
against the use of written work , O. R ,
Bowen of Plerco urged that such work
taught rhetorical form and neatness ,
encouraged concentration and throw
children on their own resources. The
place for written work , ho said , was In
examinations , In note books and occa
sionally In recitations. William Flnno-
gan of Hartlngton malntahiQd that half
the written work now done would yield
three times tlio present results If done
"twice ns carefully" and "twice as
Hope to Retum.Here.
Thursday evening Senator Dolllvor

fore the association. Friday's program
will also be one of unusual interest in
cluding the business session late in
the forenoon at the Auditorium. In
the election of officers Vice President
F. C. Marshall of Center is being dls-
cussed as a successor to President Per
duo. The place of next year's meetIng -
Ing will come up Friday morning.

BOARD OF EDUCATION DETERMINES -
MINES ON ACTION THIS WEEK.
WILL ASK FOR PLANS AT ONCE
The Board'of Education Decided to
Ask Different Architects for Plans
for New Building Board Will Meet
' Again Friday Night.
| , From Thursday's Dally. ]
Tlio Norfolk - board of education ,
meeting Wednesday evening , , declared
Us * Intention of taking the public frank
ly Into Its cpulldenco In all matters re
lating to the building operations of the
board. With a bond Issue definitely
approved by the voters the board de
cided on Immediate stops to secure
more definite information touching the
comparative advantage and cost ol
different plans open to the bpard. The
school board Is considering an entire
ly new high school building as com
pared with a remodelled building on
the old foundation. The old founda
tion may be used in rebuilding but the
standing walls will not. These walls
111 bo taken down at once.
The motion to take down the stand-
ig walls was made by Dr. Salter , who
ffored a resolution declaring It to be
10 sense of the boaid that the walls
hould be leveled to the foundation
nd providing that the board shouh
roceed as soon as possible to have the
vails taken down and the bricks
leaned for future use. The resolution
vas adopted by acclamation.
Wind Damaged Walls.
It w.as said at the board mooting
liat little sentiment now exists favor
ble to the use of the old walls am
hat In quarters where it was stll
maintained that the walls are safe 1
vas admitted that their value for re
mlldlng had been very materially re
need by the damage Inflicted by the
vlnd. On motion of Vlelo , Dr. Cole
) r. Salter and Secretary Matrau were
lamed as a special committee to at
end to having the walls of the old
ilgh school building taken down. The
vails will bo brought to the level o
ho foundation as soon as the arrange
nents can be made. They may come
lown this week.
Mr. Matrau wanted the board to
ilace a fence around the high schoo
mlldlng beyond the sidewalk as a pro-
ectlon to the public from the old walls
and chimney. The board , however/fa
vored taking down the walls at once
and thought that a fence would not be

vas authorized to secure bids for the
ale of the new school bonds. As mucl
of the bond Issue will be placed on th
market as the board may find that i

To Get New Plane.
Dr. Salter then offered a motion tha
he secretary bo Instructed to ask dl ;
'erent architects to furnish plans t
the board In competitions , the arch
ccts to provide plans for utilizing th
old foundation In the construction o
v modern building and also plans fo
an entirely new building , the plans to

The motion was carried and Is expect
ed to give the board the Information
on which the final decision can bo
Dr. Salter pointed out in the discus
sion that the old building had boon
planned at a time when the attend
ance was very much smaller than to
day , also that the present attendance
Is fast Increasing. The high school
will have 200 students , Dr. Salter said ,
by next year. With the passage of the
rural high school law , Norfolk may
have to provide for 300 high school
pupils within the next very few years.
This suggests to the board that their
arrangement must consider the needs
of a high school largo enough to re
quire an entire building for Its proper
care. If the high school should fill all
of a now building the board would have
to provide for the seventh and eighth
grades In other buildings. Two of the
grade schools , nt least , were built with
a view of having additions added at
no great cost.
During the evening Dr. Cole suggest
ed that the recently elected members
of the board bo Invited to sit with the
old board until they qualify for office.
