SCHOOL TEACHERS , ATTENTION !
To all Teachers and Pupils of Nebraska
The Department of Public Instruction
solicits the hearty cooperation of every
superintendent and principal in Ne
braska , in working for the good of the
graded schools of our beloved state.
With your help we can render the people
ple a service , worthy our profession , but
without it , our efforts may be in vain.
Make any suggestions you please for
the good of the graded schools in parti
cular and the cause of education in gen
eral. Criticise our publications freely.
How may wo improve them ?
Send us copies of all your printed
matter and publications , manuals ,
courses of study , lists of teachers , school
papers , and local papers which publish
school items. By comparing notes and
exchanging ideas we may advance
education until in spirit and in truth it
will be the principal support of virtue ,
morality and civil liberty , throughout
this noble commonwealth. Whenever
and wherever wo can assist you , com
mand us. We are ready to be with you
in commencement exercises , educa
tional rallies and patrons' meetings.
Wo hope to meet you at your district
association this spring. Come with
suggestions and questions.
Let us urge that this first year of the
twentieth century be made memorable
in Nebraska by a fitting observance of
Arbor Day. The indications at the
present writing are that this spring will
be a favorable one for tree planting.
Awaken your community in this mat
ter. Urge your people to plant trees
along the street , on the lawns , and in
the parks. Lot the school beautify the
grounds by planting trees , shrubs and
flowers. For a long time Nebraskans
were snubbed by being called "Bug-
Eaters. " But to the Hon. Charles H.
Sloan , of Geneva , belongs the honor of
being the author of the resolution
adopted by the legislature of 1895 ,
which gave Nebraska a new name
" ' . "
"Tree Planter's State.
To emphasize the importance of this
day wo quote the words of its
author , J. Sterling Morton : -'Arbor
day Nebraska's own home-invented
and homo instituted anniversary which
has been already transplanted to nearly
every state in the American Union , and
even adopted iu foreign lauds , is netlike
like other holidays. Each of those re
poses upon the past , while Arbor Day
proposes for the future. It contem
plates , not the good and the beautiful of
past generations , but it sketches , out
lines , establishes the useful and the
beautiful of the ages yet to come.
Other anniversaries stand with their
backs to the future , peering into and
worshipping the past ; but Arbor Day
faces the future with an affectionate
solicitude , regarding it as an artist his
canvas , and etches upon our prairies
and plains gigantic groves and towering
forests of waving trees , which shall for
our posterity become consummate living
pictures , compared to which the gor
geous colorings of Rubens are tame and
insignificant * * * As ono friend
hands to another a bouquet , so , this an
niversary sends greetings and flowers ,
foilago and fruit , to posterity. It is the
sole holiday of the human family which
looks forward and not backward. "
Another important matter is that of
library and text books. Carlyle was
right when ho said : "The true Univer
sity of these days is a collection of
books. " But be careful iu their selec
tion. None but the best should be
allowed to occupy space iu the school
library. Do not neglect the grades ; it is
there that the love for good reading
must have its origin. Let pupils be
taught to frequent the company of their
betters. "In books and life , that
is the most wholesome society ; let
them learn to admire rightly ; the great
pleasure of life is that. Teach them to
note what great men admired ; they ad
mired great things ; narrow spirits ad
mire basely and worship meanly. "
There are text books in too many of our
schools today valuable chiefly , as relics.
It is impossible to enumerate in this letter
all of the new sciences , the new forces ,
new systems and new methods that
have entered , and are about to outer ,
the domain of pedagogy through
twentieth century text books. It is
sufficient , hero to say , if your school is
suffering from text books that are
behind the times , awake your school
board to their duty in fitting you out
with the newest and best text books ,
now on the market. Twentieth cen
tury boys and girls demand , among
their inherent rights , twentieth century
How to keep the American high
school from becoming a female semi
nary is a serious problem. Few high
schools are graduating more than ono
boy to three girls. To overcome this ,
let us put our courses of study in touch
with the avenues open to young men
and young women who graduate from
our high schools. There are those who
will go to the University. Some will
enter the profession of teaching. Others
will enter the business world. Lot us
acquaint ourselves with the circumstan
ces and desires of pupils on their en
trance to the high school , or as they
may develop during their high school
course. Those who have the ability
and means to get direct to college or
university on graduation should bo
lined up for such a course. Those who
must teach before they can take univer
sity or normal training should bo given
some instruction during their high
school course in pedagogy. Let them
study the actual work of teaching by
visiting the various grades in your own
school. By a careful use of their time
they may read two or three good works
on methods of teaching. For those who
will enter the business world , let \IK de
vote at least a part of the senior year
to a course in actual business practice.
In this manner we can hold boys and
girls for graduation who would other
wise drop out before the junior year.
And ultimately more will graduate
from the high school and more will en-
