lr. Thomas M. Kalllet, superfnleud
ent ot schools at Springfield, JIas.,de
livered an address on Saturday even
ing at No. 102 North Nineteenth Street
Philadelphia. The intention he dis
cussed was "The motor functions of
tlie brain." He said in part: "We I
iHimmouly think of the brain as oulv '
the organ ot thought, but it Is eipialiy
the orgau of muscular movement. The .
nerve energy wlilcli causes volntitary
niovenients is geneiated lu and dls-1
"Tlie motor functloit-of the brain is
lu animals the most important. The
elephant and tlie whale have finely
convoluted brains, because thev have
n large mass of muscles to move, Man's
brain is larue pattly because it must
geneiate the nerve energy to more a
complex muscular system. It follows
from these facts that all manual work
involves brain work, and the distinc
tion between 'hand work' aud 'bruin
work' is not true. It requires brains
to have physical energy. Laziness
means defect of brain power. Savages
are as lazy as they aro iiiitutoled.
"Tlie motor cells in tho brain are
connected bv the motor nerves with
tho muscles. Physical exerciso devel
ops both those cells aud their muscles.
The first question in regard to a system
of gymnastics Is, 'What is its ellect on
the nerve centres?' The nerve ceuties
degenerate if not used. Guddeti, a
Swiss physiologist, has shown that if
you cut out t he oye of a pigeon the
visual contie soon wastes away. Post
mortem examinations have shown thai
in tlie case of bed ridden people, long
deprived of muscular exercise, tho en
tire motor area of tlie brain is more or
loss atrophied and waterlogged. An
idiot shows his lack of brains quite as
much iu his walk as iu his talk The
one Is a shamble, as tlieyotlier is a
It is easier to move or innervate a
largo group of muscles than a small
one to move the whole arm than one
linger. Skilled movements require
small groups of muscles and the coordi
nation of groups. 'Manual' skill, how
over, resides not in the baud, but iu
the brain and ill the mind. You can
not develone skill iu the hand of an
idiot. 'Manual' tralulug is, therefore,
uot 'baud training," but a tralulug of
brain and mind. Not all hand work is
educational only that which appeals
to small groups'.of muscles, and invol
ves tho greatest number of muscular
movements. As the wrist and lingers,
are capable of the greatest number of
movements, manual training ought to
appeal especially to them. This de
termines both the kinds of exeieises
adapted tti manual training and the
kluds of tools to be used.
hen a muscular muvemcut Is tlrst
learned unless it be reflex it is doue
by the brain; aftor it becomes habitual
it Is relegated to the lower automatic
centres. This marks tho difference
between the manual traiiiini; school
and the trade school. The former
stops when a process or movement is
thus relegated to these lower centres;
tho latter coutiuues so as to produce
skill which can pioiluco quautlty of
Mulshed products. It is au important
question today whether a system of
gymnastics ought to appeal to the
motor centres iu the biaiu or to tlie
lowerautouiatlo centres. Tlie Swedish
system rests on the former assumption
many others ou the latter. Thew-hote
question is, iu fact, au open one."
