FOREWORD.

The specimen programs in this bulletin are intended to serve as models
for the use of teachers in small rural schools where supervision in
physical education has not been afforded by the county or district. A
description of every activity on the specimen programs is included in the
bulletin and references are given for finding additional material. It is
hoped that through the study and the use of these specimen programs
and by referring to Bulletin 31, teachers will find it less difficult to organ-
ize programs themselves. Without pre-arranged programs in physical
education the objectives in health training and character training can
not be achieved.

Margaret S. McNaught,
Commissioner of Elementary Schools.

Herbert R. Stolz, M.D.,
State Supervisor of Physical Education.
