The holidays will witness another annual
gathering of the State Teachers' Association.
The 'small boy' will again he dissected, anal
yzed and Hayed. The sources of knowledge
will be-exploited, the founts of culture tapped.
The notorious perversity of 'school boards'
will be aired, and the introduction of 'music'
and 'art' favored and disfavored. In general
the strong knights and fair ladies of the ever
fainous birch will meet to talk over their fail
ures and successes; hopes, plans and theories
for the advancement of the Schools of Our
Own Nebraska. We have a strong liking for
the American Teacher, he is a composite of
independence, nervousness, energy, child
study and rigid rules: but in spite of all this
he is making or unmaking our future citizen
ship. On the whole he seems to be doing
fairly well. He is a faddist and runs mad on
novelties but ho usually checks himself be
fore reaching the precipice, which is much in
his favor. Of course his head is composed of
impossible and unprecedented theories but
'it takes all kinds of weather to make up a
year and a sphere" so we won't grumble. Tn
the end he is right: in the end he is of value;:
in the end we say he is the strongest and best
influence on our future men and women.
