Whtn thf young child has something- to say he has a means of expressing it in a provocative and graphic
manner. Early expressions convey the fact that children draw what they know rather than what they see. In
order to maintain interest in handwriting a child should be encouraged to express his own thoughts and ex-
periences. Pupils in the primary grades enjoy writing original poems and stories. The above illustrated
poem was written by Becky Ruley, a member of the Handwriting Methods Class at St. Mary of the Springs
College for Women, Columbus, Ohio.

These specimens show remarkable progress made in penmanship by Joseph P. Healy. The top specimen was
wi-itten Sept. 12, and the bottom specimen was wi-itten in February. The first specimen was written in a wild,
uncontrolled movement. Notice the lack of form knowledge and the irregularity of size and spacing.
In the bottom specimen each letter is legible, and as a whole, the page is greatly improved in uniformity. Joseph
is a student in St. Andrew's School, Flushing, New York. The improvement shown in his work is similar to the
improvement shown by the entire class.

STATE TEACHERS COLLEGES

Bridgewater, Framingham, Salem, Mass.

Department of Handwriting,

C. E. Doner, Supv.



In the reorganization of courses,
the present plan in this department
is as follows:

All Freshmen students are required
to take a preliminary test in hand-
writing. The requirements for pass-
ing the test are, —

1. Quality. A quality of at least
70, or C, as determined by the stand-
ard measurement chart in use in the
College.

2. Speed. A speed of eighty (80)
letters written in one minute, on pro-
miscuous matter, writing for eight
to ten minutes.

3. Compositions, Themes, Note-
books, etc. General writing in one
or more subjects is inspected for cor-
relation. Plain, fluent handwriting



must function, or carry over, in a1
subjects.

Students who do not pass in th
preliminary test enter a clinic clas
for further practice until the end o
the quarter in which they give evi
dence that their work is at least u
to the standard.

Other courses are offered in thes
colleges during the Junior and Senio
years, required and elective. Thes
coui-ses are, — methods of teaching
blackboard writing, plain, and Oi
English lettering.

I should like to hear, through th
Educator, from special teachers an
supervisors about standard require
ments in handwriting in their school
or teachers colleges.

A SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION
CLINIC

The Eleventh Annual School Ad-
ministrators' Conference at Peabody
College will take the nature of a
School Administration Clinic. It will
be held Tuesday, Wednesday, and
Thuisday, June 18, 19, and 20. City
ami county superintendents, high-
school and elementary-school prin-
cipals, supervisors of instruction,
officials in state departments of edu-
cation, and other types of school ex-
ecutives in elementary and second-
ary schools are invited to mail im-
mcliately to Dennis H. Cooke or Ray
L. Hamon a brief statement of sev-
eral of their administrative problems
on which they would like some help
at this Clinic. These problems will
be studied and discussed at the Clinic
by authorities in and students of
school administration. School offi-
cers are urged to attend the Clinic
land participate in the study and dis-
cussions of their problems. There
will be a large number of exhibits
I of school, equipment, textbooks, and
' supplies. No fee is charged for at-

Clinic.



Carlos R. Wood, who attended the
Zanerian in 1907 sent us a Christmas
Greeting from Huntington, Indiana,
where Mr. Woods states that he has
been doing some penmanship teach-
ing. He writes a beautiful business
and ornamental hand.




A. M. Reichard, the penman who wrote
the above, is connected with the Tiffin
Business University, Tiffin, Ohio.
Mr. Reichard is one of the Business
College proprietors who believes in
fine penmanship.



A unique specimen has been re-
ceived from John Bollinger who dis-
plays unusual skill. Mr. Bollinger is
an enthusiastic penmanship fan. He
is at the present time working on the
lessons in the Educator.

HANDWRITING AND THE
LANGUAGE ARTS

(Continued from page 17)

Several Things to Consider

In order to give the child the best
possible chance of developing in
Writing and the Language Arts sev-
eral things must be considered:

1. The child should have a sense of
rhythm developed. This can be done
through plays, games, dances, sing-
ing songs or listening to poetry with
a decided rhythm or beat. This is a
foundation vital for all other work.

2. Coordination of muscles and
training the senses — ^learn to walk
without dragging the feet. As I un-
derstand it, on the first day of school
for children in the first grade in De-
troit, the children go to the gym-
nasium to become acquainted with
"The Sweet Lady" who is in charge
of speech work. She has the chil-
dren march or walk around the room
and discovers the children who lack
coordination. Other activities also
are used for this purpose. These
children usually have speech disor-
ders or some type of difficulty. Next



each child is given a lollipop. They
suck it at first under directions. They
learn a song "The Little Red Pony"
which of course means the tongue.
Tongue gymnastics are then given to
the children who need to learn how
to use the tongue in speaking.

3. Naturally speech follows. Some
consideration should be given to pitch
and quality of voice as well as the
words being said. We have too many
monotones in reading or speech work.
All teachers whether speech teach-
ers or English teachers should con-
sider tone of child's voice and help
him to keep a pleasing one or help
him to improve his.

4. Then comes language and gram-
mar — knowing how to say what one
wants to say and showing interest
and enthusiasm as well as using the
correct forms.

5. In order to enlarge his knowl-
edge, he is now ready for reading.
No need being in too big a hurry to
accomplish this art. "All that a uni-
versity can do is just what the first
school began doing — teach us to read"
so Carlyle tells us.

6. And then the crowning glory
comes when we can write our
thoughts down. If we allow the chUd



to develop naturally and not rush
him before he is matured in each
level of attainment, we shall not
have so many disappointed and sad
looking children and all these arts
will be a joy their entire life as they
should be.

BOOK REVIEWS

Our readers are interested in books of merit,
bat especially in books of interest and value to
commercial teachers including books of special
educational value and books on business sub-
jects. All such books will be briefly reviewed
in these columns, the object being to give suffi-
cient description of each to enable our readers
to determine its value.



Make Yourself a Better Speaker,
by E. C. Buehler, Professor of Speech
and Dramatic Art, University of
Kansas. Published by The Ronald
Press Company, New York. Cloth
cover, 50 pages.



This book is designed for those who realize
that ability as a speaker is worth developing,
that it is an asset of real importance. This
book is written primarily for two specific
groups. Included in the first of these groups
are men and women in business and the pro-
fessions, the vast number of laymen speakers,
those who from time to time have to con-
duct public meetings or make short talks.
Such people are found in every city and com-
munity. Churches, schools, lodges, clubs, and
all kinds of organizations call for leadership
which makes itself felt through the spoken
word. These are the men and women who
make the wheels go round.

The second group includes those who. in the
course of their schooling, can or want to
take only one speech course, and consequently
want as much sound advice as possible, con-
densed into the least possible space. These
are the students of engineering, law, business,
medicine. It is hoped that the book may give
to all of these persons help which will be of
definite and great value in their future
careers.

To a great many persons in both these
groups, the textbook designed for a full col-
lege course may seem too academic, lengthy,
and difficult to read. In this volume the
author has made even,- effort to present the
subject in a simplified and attractive man-
ner, and to translate the basic theories and
methods of good speaking into the easily un-
derstandable language of the average person's
experiences and beliefs, yet not to
any soundm



of principle



that account.



Though the author deals with the making
of a successful speech as something that is
within the reach of everyone, this is in no
sense a book of superficial short-cuts which
proposes to teach how to make a speech "in
ten easy lessons". Anyone seriously interested
in acquiring the command and ease that come
from really understanding how to speak will



realize that, while important practical and
cultural values of speech are within the reach
of everyone, making an outstandingly suc-
cessful speech involves processes which are
too complicated an d delicate to be over-sim-
plified. Accordingly, it is assumed through-
out that the reader wants to understand the
real nature of his subject.

The author tells his stor>' about public
speaking largely from first-hand expei-ience.
Most of this book is the product of the test
tube. Whatever rules and principles you find
here have been thoroughly tried and tested.
Eighteen years of critically listening to some
forty thousand speeches, both outside and in
the classroom, many of them by men and
women of prominence, have helped to season
and crystallize definite concepts and beliefs
regarding speech making. Time and experi-
ence have helped to sift the kernel from the
chaff. Mere speculative theory has been elim-
inated as much as possible, while what is
workable and practical has been retained.

Keeping in mind the purpose of the book
and the limits on the time of the people for
whom it is intended, the author has tried to
give it an arrangement that would lead easily
and naturally into the subject, and progres-
sively build a grasp of principles step by step.

The book falls broadly into three divisions.
The early chapters present first a guiding phi-
losophy for speech making. They deal with
the fundamental attitudes necessar>- for suc-
cessful speech work. The second division is
embraced in those chapters which explain the
"dimensions" of speech. Here are the essen-
tial theories and principles. Here the old
laws and rules are simplified and recast to
give the reader a commonsense perspective
of speaking. Finally, the third division of
the book takes up specific speech problems,
types of speeches, methods of preparation,
suggestions, hints, exercises and program for
self-training in speech.

The ability to make a good speech has been
highly regarded in all ages — but never more
highly than today. It has become almost a
prerequisite to full success in a business, pro-
fessional, or public career.



What Do I Do Now? by Mildred
M. Payne, Instructor of Stenog-raphy.
Office Practice, Business Etiquette,
State Teachers College, Kearney,
Nebraska. Published by The Gregg
Publishing Company, New York,
New York. Cloth cover, 120 pages.

This is a book that treats a neglected but
important factor in business education. This
"Guide to Correct Conduct and Dress for
Business People" provides a training in per-
sonality traits that are essential if our stu-



dents are to obtain and retain positions. Get-
ting a job and promotion on the job depend
in a large measure on the type of training
that can be obtained from WHAT DO I DO
NOW? It offers a practical method of market-
ing one's ability.

In a detailed way, each of the ten chapters
covers one of the following topics : Person-
ality. Habits That Annoy. Background, Per-
sonal Appearance. Faring Forth, At Dinner,
Voice and Conversation. Introductions, Travel,
and Correspondence. These topics are cov-
ered in the same order in the workbook that
is available. This material trains the stu-
dent in what to do by having him do it.
A teacher's manual provides comments and
answers for both the text and workbook.

A YEAR'S SUBSCRIPTION

Having been a steady subscriber
to The Educator for twenty-three
years, I want you to know that I
consider it one of my very best
friends. I eagerly await its arrival
each month, because I enjoy tre-
mendously seeing and reading the
excellent material in it.

In my opinion, many single issues
are worth more than the price of the
entire year's subscription.

Here is an alphabet for you to practice. In every alphabet you will find
some letters which appeal to you and some which you may not like so well.
The wise thing for you to do is to pick out the good parts of every specimen.
Use an oblique penholder and a fine writer pen. Raise the pen always at
the base line of every downward stroke.

This type of writing should be crowded together solid. It should not have
a running effect such as appears in business and ornamental writing. It
depends upon strength and regularity for its beauty.
