cause of the few applicants, it was ex-
tonded to include all high schools in
Centre county. During the eight
2ars, there have been only two appli-
cants from Bellefonte, one of which
was Mary Barnhart, the successful
competitor three years ago.
Interesting Talks of Able Instructors
Characterize the Various
The enrollment officers were as
busy as bumblebees on Monday morn-
ing checking up the list and collect-
ing the dues from the three hundred
and more school teachers coming to
Bellefonte for the sixty-ninth annual
tachers’ institute held in the court
house and the high school building.
The first session at 1:30 o’clock on
Monday afternoon was opened by
‘singing “Onward Christian Soldiers.”
Rev. J. A. Mills led in prayer after
which assistant county superintend-
ent H. C. Rothrock, who presided, urg-
ed all teachers to gather as closely as
possible in the front of the court room.
He then introduced Dr. John Harring-
ton Cox, of the University of West
Virginia, whose subject was “Skylarks
and Poppy Fields.” :
Quoting Hamlet, “In apprehension,
how like a God,” the speaker said in
part: “The child, being a high type
of animal, has naturally some of the
brute nature, and the chief function
of the school is to train child nature
so as to raise it as far as possible
above the brute. The intellectual life
of man was compared to the brute
(a) Memory. Many animals have
better memories than the human.
(b) Hearing. Man is no higher
than the brute and in many cases
(c) Seeing, smelling and nearly
all the senses are in most cases no
higher in man than in the brute.
(d) Reasoning compared to brutes.
That brutes reason was compared by
illustration that many do, but man has
the advantage over the brute because
he has language with which to ex-
press himself while the brute has not.
How then do children differ from the
brute and how are we going to raise
them above the animal? Through his
creative ability. Give the child a vis-
ion or a problem and allow him to use
his creative imagination to work it
out for himself. The prime difference
between men of high grade and men
of low grade is creative ability. The
difference between great poets and
versifiers is the difference in their cre-
ative imaginations. The difference be-
tween great scientists and the men
who study science by filling note books
with clippings and a few specimens is
creative ability. The radio, aero-
planes, automobiles and all the won-
derful inventions are products of
man’s creative imagination. Our
work as teachers is to train the crea-
tive imagination. Take two boys
working on a farm. One has crea-
tive ability and the other has not. The
latter works from morning to night,
never ' seeing farther than his plow
and the mule he is driving. In a short
time it is hard to tell which knows the
most, the boy or the mule. The other
boy sees all the beauties of nature
around him, talks to the birds and the
trees and sees himself doing great
things. In time he becomes a man
and does big things.
Following an interval of song Miss
Erna Grassmuck, of the State depart-
ment of public instruction, was intro-
duced and talked on helping boys and
girls to develop through geography
lessons. The speaker stated that a
short time ago she heard the state-
ment that the time is coming when
the hours for working men will be
shorter and wages higher. That is, 4
hours of work, 4 hours for eating, 8
hours of sleep, and the remainder of
the day (8 hours) for recreation. In
order to help the boys and girls to de-
velop the right habits for their hours
of recreation we, as teachers, must
have information, facts, principles,
skill, tools. Get on the job and stick
to it until it is done. Give the child
the job and let him work it out for
himself, but see that he knows how to
go about doing it. Make the child the
centre of work in the schools.
The first speaker at Tuesday morn-
ing’s sessions was Dr. Edwin Barlow
Evans, of Thiel college, who discussed
“How to Teach Reading.” In sub-
stance he said that the child cannot
read well orally unless he can read
well silently. The quickest way to be-
come good readers is to read good lit-
erature, and occasionally aloud. Never
allow a pupil to read anything of
which he does not at first understand
Following Dr. Evans’ talk Miss A.
Lulu Hill, of St. Louis, talked on si-
lent.reading. Silent reading, she said,
will increase speed although the pu-
pil must be taught to read aloud as
well as silent. Rapid thinkers make
rapid readers, hence the importance
of teaching the child to think rapidly.
At the Tuesday afternoon session
Miss Grassmuck talked on geography
in life. Geography develops those
habits and attitudes that every child
should have regarding locations and
lives of peoples elsewhere in the
Dr. Horace V. Pike, of the Danville
hospital, talked on what we know
about mental diseases, their causes
and methods of prevention. As the
doctor has had many years of exper-
ience he handled his subject intelli-
gently and well. The sessions closed
with a brief talk by Dr. Evans on the
challenge of the living universe.
On Wednesday morning Miss Hill
talked on keeping the holidays. In
the course of her remarks she said
that if parents are not interested
enough to come and hear Johnnie ex-
cept when he has a speech they are
not greatly interested. She then de-
fined the various holidays and told
what each one stood for.
Dr. Evans continued his talk of
Tuesday stating that to teach emo-
tion and expression in reading go from
the near to the remote. Teach the
known then the unknown. The child
will easily pass from simple reading
to the masterpieces of literature. !
Dr. Cox talked on story telling. He
advocated telling stories and not read-
ing them. Not falsehoods, but some
of the greatest truths in the world.
The impression created on the child
will be far greater if stories are told
him than when read out of the most
At Wednesday afternoon’s session
Dr. Cox told of a trip to England
while talking on the subject of lions
and guinea pigs. He used the animals
as an illustration to show that lions
raised in captivity then released lost
no time in seeking the forests and tak-
ing care of themselves, whereas guin-
ea pigs thus raised and released have
not sufficient knowledge to get their
own food. He told how in the pioneer
days the Indian was a strong and
healthy race but once the government
began coddling him he began to de-
teriorate. Now that he has been giv-
en his own reservation the strain is
improving. He then discussed the ne-
gro race, saying that in the south, in
slavery days, the negro had a pretty
easy time of it. The white man made
guinea pigs out of them during the
war, but of late they are becoming
more hardy and self-supporting. Fath-
ers and mothers live lives of hardship
to make it easy for their children and
the result is many of them grow up
into worthless, good-for-nothings.
They are merely guinea pigs. To
make lions out of the boys and girls
put things in the school programs thai
will make them work, and don’t coun-
tenance too many dances, parties, etc.
At this juncture prothonotary Roy
Wilkinson appeared before institute
and made an appeal for the Old Iron-
sides fund. He stated that Centre
county’s quota is $100, and if all
school children contribute from one to
five cents it can easily be raised.
Following a session of song Dr.
Evans talked on the beacon lights of
literature. He cited various illustra-
tions where men were turned from a
dissolute life to one of usefulness by
reading high-class literature. We
need literature to keep our souls alive.
Literature makes idealists out of men,
not materialists. A materialist is a
man who says all the books a man
needs are those to teach him how to
put butter on one side of his bread and
applebutter on the other. The ideal-
ist dramatizes his ideas and from
them have come all the great books,
inventions, and everything that has
made us the greatest nation on earth.
The principal event of yesterday's
session was the address in the after-
noon of Dr. Francis B. Haas, Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction. It was
his first appearance in that capacity
before a Centre county institute and
he made a very favorable impression.
The institute will close with the ses-
sion this morning.
NOTES OF THE INSTITUTE.
Just 347 teachers registered on
Monday and were present during the
The very interesting report publish-
ed above was furnished the “Watch-
man” by Miss Louise Hoffer, of Phil-
ipsburg, for several years a teacher
in the Bellefonte schools.
It is a very noticeable fact that
teachers attending institute these days
take the gathering far more seriously
than they did twenty-five or thirty
years ago. It is evident that nowa-
days they are anxious to glean infor-
mation that will be of benefit to them
in their profession, while in the olden
time institute was considered more in
the light of a grand lark for the
One of the interesting events of the
institute will take place at the closing
session this morning when county su-
perintendent David O. Etters will be
presented with a handsome gold watch
by the teachers. As told in the
“Watchman” some months ago Supt.
Etters will of necessity go on the re-
tired list with the close of his present
term next May, and as this will be his
last institute the teachers are going
to give him the watch as a testimonial
of the esteem in which he is held by
The Card Party at the Elks Club
A delightful time is in store for
those who attend the progressive five
hundred and bridge party at the Elks
club in this place tonight.
It will be a hospital benefit given
under the auspices of the D. A. R. and
the Daughters are hostesses trained in
the art of entertainment.
Everybody is invited and the charge
will be only fifty cents.

——The citizens of Bellefonte will
elect a tax collector on November 3,
and it is to your interest to vote for
the one whom you think will give the
best service. November 1921, you
elected Herbert Auman, believing that
he would be able to accomplish what
the majority desired. His duplicates
show that he has collected more taxes
than were ever known to be collected
before. Under the personal collection
he has traveled and canvassed the
town more in one year than was done
in the past twenty-five years, there-
fore, it is to your interest to re-elect
him as your tax collector.

FOR EXCEEDING SPEED
LIMIT AT HOWARD.
For some time past word has been
passed along among automobilists to
beware of the speeding at Howard.
Right here it might be said that the
officials of that thriving little borough
object very much to the use of the
term speedtrap. They have an ordi-
nance prohibiting running through the
borough at a speed exceeding fifteen
miles an hour. They have measured
the main streets and have lawful
signs posted, according to their own
|| declaration, every eighth of a mile.
They have two traffic officers, consta-
ble Northamer and a man named
Williams, and both are equipped ‘with
stop watches. In civilian clothes they
take the time of motorists in passing
over an eighth of a mile stretch and
if the time exceeds the borough speed
limit, the driver receives a notice to
come forth and settle.
While it has been impossible to get
a record of how many settled the cli-
max came last Friday evening when a
number of hearings were booked to be
held before justice of the peace A. A.
Pletcher. Attorneys S. D. Gettig and
John G. Love represented a number of
motorists who demanded hearings, J.
Kennedy Johnston represented the
borough and W. D. Zerby was on hand
as counsel for ’Squire Pletcher. One
of the cases heard was against Dr.
McDowell Tibbens, of Beech Creek,
who was found guilty and fined ten
dollars and costs. He promptly gave
notice that he would appeal the case.
A case against Charles Miller, of
Bellefonte, fell because that gentle-
man proved he was in Tyrone when
the alleged speeding was to have oc-
curred. A number of others waived
a hearing and decided to have their
cases tried in court. -

Spring Township Residents to Meet in
A meeting of the tax payers of
Spring township will be held in the
court house, Bellefonte, at 8 o’clock
Wednesday evening, October 28th, to
consider the proposed bond issue of
$64;400 for the purpose of erecting,
equipping and maintaining an ade-
quate school building at Pleasant Gap.
At the present time the township
owns two school buildings in the vi-
cinity of the Gap, one on Horntown
run which is crowded with from forty
to fifty pupils, and one on the pike
where ninety pupils attend daily.
They also have rented and equipped
the old silk mill, where there is an at-
tendance of sixty pupils—a total of
two hundred school children of all
grades from the primary to the High
school scattered around in three build-
ings. It is the present desire of the
board to erect one building, on a con-
venient location, to accommodate all
the schools, which will be an economy
To do so it will be necessary to pro-
vide the funds in one of two ways,
either by increasing the millage to the
limit or issuing bonds, and the direc-
tors have wisely decided upon the lat-
ter way. But to negotiate a bond is-
sue it is necessary to have the major-
ity consent of the voters of the town-
ship, and the question will be up for
decision at the polls on November 3rd.
It is because of this fact that a meet-
ing of the tax payers has been called
for next Wednesday night, and inas-
much as every citizen of the township
is interested there should be a large
attendance. The meeting will be ad-
dressed by Mr. Lee L. Driver, of the
State Department of Public Instruc-
tion, and John B. Payne, supervisor of
vocational education. They will ex-
plain the present situation in Spring
township and show the advantages to
be derived from the erection of a new
