(From a Staff Correspondent
LINCOLN. Nob.. Dec. 6-(Special.V-In
his annual report to Governor Sheldon,
State Superintendent of Schools J. L
McBrien today emphasizes the value of
normal training furnished prospective
teachers of the state through his depart
ment. He presents a number of testimon
ials to the efficiency of the junior normal
schools held under supervlrton of his de
partment and commends the work for con
tinuation. Agricultural Instruction through the me
dium of the high schools of Nebraska, the
report says, has been of especial aid to
the students who have taken the work, as
has the use of the appropriation for the
aid of weak districts. Superintendent
McBrlen thinks the attention given educa
tion by the last legislature will result in
the utmost benefit to the various branches
of work that center In his office.
Junior Normal Schools.
Speaking of the Junior normal schools,
Mr. McBrien says:
The enrollment In the eight Junior
normal schools for the session of 1907 was
1,262, and for 1W was 1.448. making a total
enrollment for the blennlum of i.710. Lur
ing the past six years the total enrollment
in the Junior nornal schools has reached
t.75o teachers. Never did the state do so
much good with so little money in the
professional training of lis teachers.
Senator Jesse L. Root, now a member
or the supreme court, known In the last
legislature as the "watch dog of the trea
sury." after visiting the Junior normal
schools at Alliance and North I'latte, wrote
this department, under date of June 27
19tf, as follows: "1 had time to and did
give my personal attention, both at Alli
ance and North Platte, in th.
done in the Junior normals there, 1 am
not an educator, but I was deeply im
pressed with the value of the necessity for
these schools. 1 regret the appropriation
was not greater for the purpose, although
Is was all that was asked, as 1 remember
Therefore, in the light of the amount
contributed by the local people for the
support of these schools and the opinion
held by Judge Root on the need of a larger
appropriation for their malntalnance and
support, I shall recommend to the next
legislature an appropriation of at least
30,000 for the Junior normal schools.
State Aid to Weak Districts.
Of the appropriation of 50,000 for weak
school districts, the first payment of
Wt was made In January, l9o&, and the sec
ond payment of IS.um will be made be
fore the close of this blennlum. No special
appropriation ever before made in Ne
braska has given school advantages that
have been shared In by so large a number
of school children of the state. The first
payment was apportioned to forty-five
counties, containing 711 school districts en
titled to state aid. with a school census
of 14,351. This means that during this
blennlum over 15.000 boys and a-lrls will
receive Increased school privileges under
the provisions of this act. Although forty
five counties are represented in the dis
tribution of this fund." more than 86 per
cent of the total amount will be received
by twenty-five counties, the larger pay
ment In every Instance going to the north
ern and western counties, and the greatest
benefits being derived by districts show
ing the greatest need of special assist
The good resulting from the enactment
of this law has already been written Into
the official records of the state. In 1SU6-7
there were 330 school districts in the state
that held less than three months of school.
In 190i-8. the year following the enactment
of the law, 238 districts failed to hold a
term of three months or more. A start has
been made In the right direction, but upon
future legislatures rests the responsibility
of carrying forward effectively the good
work that was begun two rears uo. A
condition that compels 238 schoel districts
In Nebraska to hold lees than three months
of school each year Is a menace to the wel
fare of our state and a crime against every
child of school age residing In such dis
tricts. The best evidence of the successful opera
tion of this law Is shown by the very
strong endorsement given it fcy county
superintendents and school officers.
The legislature of I! should not stop
short of an appropriation of lloO.utO stale
aid to weak districts for the next bienmum.
There was not sufficient data for the legis
lature of 1W7 to make an appropriation com
mensurate with the needs of tuese districts.
Any reasonable person who makes a care
ful study of thla question must admit that
tloo.000 for the next blennlum is absolutely
Normal Training; Ulan Schools.
At the close of the present b.ennlum.
March 31, 19o. there will be a surplus of at
least tlo,X on hand in the annrDi lallon for
the normal training high schools, to be
applied on this work for the blennlum be.
I ginning April 1, 1909. For the school year
I 1S07-8 the number of high schools approved
I for normal training under the act of 1907
was sixty-eight, and the number of Juniors
and seniors who subscribed to the entrance
declaration and did the work was 1.M0;
for the school year 19o8-9 eighty-six high
schools have been approved and the num
ber of Juniors and seniors who have sub
scribed to the entrance declaration and
are now pursuing the work Is 1.502.
I recommend that our law be so amended
that a high school maintaining a normal
training class be paid according to the
number of students who complete the nor
mal training course and pass the required
examination for a teacher's certificate un
der the rules now In force for the certifica
tion of graduates of normal training high
schools. Not how many in the class at the
beginning, but how many finish the course
that is the question.
Aarlcnltnrnl High Schools.
On entering upon my official duties as
state superintendent, January 4, l!rr, 1 was
convinced the time had come to empha
sise the importance of agricultural educa
tion and industrial training, and practically
added a new department to the office by
instructing Deputy E. C. Bishop to devote
his whole time to the promotion of this
work during my first term. The success
which crowned his efforts was so phenom
enal that we were forced to continue 1t
during the present term. At this time there
are at Ku.it U.iO boys and girls in Ne
braska Interested In these various lines
of work. This Impels me to recommend
the establishment of not less than fifteen or
more than twenty state agriculural high
schools, under the management and con
trol of the Board of Regents of the I'ni
versity of Nebraska. The course of study
should be the Nebraska High School Man
ual Issued jointly by the 1'nlverslly of Ne
braska and the state superintendent of
Public instruction, so modified as to pro
vide for the theory and practice of the ele
ments of agriculture, manual training and
domestic science. Opportunity should also
be given for work In the theory and prac
tice of manual training and domestic
science In the grades below the high school.
These state agricultura 1 high schools
should be established as departments of
the regular public high schools at the
places designated therefor. Kor the support
and maintenance of these school mere
should be appropriated not less than llou.
0u0. No state agricultural high school
should be established as a department of
any regular public high school unless
there is given to the slate the free use of
a tract of land adjoining, at least five
acres conveniently situated to said high
school, for actual practice by all students
In the agricultural departments of these
high schools under the direction of com
petent Instructors for experimental work
One hundred thousand dollars appropri
ated for this purpose would do more to
promote the general welfare of our great
commonwealth than It Is possible to do
with five times this amount through any
t'er canr I. At each place whe-e a
state agricultural high school Is established
the i ubhc a hool buildings. text b OAs
and apparatus should he placed at the ser
vice of the state, without coat, aggregat
ing In money value nearly W.coa.ov .Thl
plan would give the state 10o acres In ex-
rt-rlmental farms, a fatuity of 1U) mem
ers and a school of ! students, mak
ing the greatest agricultu ai and indus
trial school In tho I'nlled Slates.
