ate schools might have more of the practical training, we have divid-
ed the junior and senior classes and have given to the A division of
each class much more of the cultural or literary work and to the B
divisions drill in the fundamentals of business English.

In the third year both divisions study the history of English litera-
ture, study quite extensively the writing of the short story and the
essay, learn how to preside in public meeting and how to give without
notes, short speeches before the class on topics of current interest, as
well as read and comment on the best modern periodicals. The " A "
division reads many of the classics, but the " B " division studies
practical exercise work and business letters.

In the fourth year the work of the preceding year is continued
and extended, and the study of American literature substituted for
the English. The study of the essay is continued, and also public
speaking which fits for work in debating. Work in the latter is very
valuable training. I have not been able to do as much of this work
as I should like to do because eight classes a day have not left me the
time necessary for such work. Miss Lougee has taken up this work
and established a debating league among the young men. Our High
School will be represented this year by members of this league in de-
bate with Lewiston High School and Leavitt Institute.

In addition to the regular English work each student is reciuired to
read (during the year) outside of school, three books selected from
carefully chosen lists. Many children, whose choice of books is not
directed by the parents, are reading ' ' trash ' ' and fiction that, al-
though not harmful to mature readers, gives wrong impressions of
life to young minds. This extra reading is intended to help cultivate
an appreciation for the better class of books. It is much to be re-
gretted that more of such suijervision is not done for cliildren below
the high school.

In this connection it is well to speak of our High School Library
Books and the best periodicals are in grea1^ demand today because
tiiey are in actual and practical use, but the <lemand is greater than,
the supply. We have at present about two lunidred forty volumes
in good condition. The students are helping to increase the number
by a penny-a-term crusade. Such books as Up from Slavery, The
Making of an American, The Promised Land and A Biograi)hy of



30 ANNUAL TOWN REPORT



TJioitias Edison are greatly appreciated by the students. Two hun-
dreil more volumes would give us a good working library.

Certainly books are needed, but the greatest need of all is more
room. Good nature, vigorous effort, and self control, as well as a
seating arrangement that resembles the sardine method of packing,
prevent catastropiies when thirty students are crowded into one small
room 13 feet x 18 feet, for an hour each morning. But what about
health f It is iioped that the citizens of Norway who are so proud of
their schools will before long be able to provide for their students
sufficient room and ample breathing space. This means not only
better health, but also greater efficiency in the work of our schools.

LATIN AND HISTORY DEPARTMENT.
To THE Superintendent of Schools:

A report of the work done by the Latin department of the Norway
High School may very properly be brief as the methods employed do
not radically differ from those of other high schools.

The four years' work covers the amount regularly required for col-
lege entrance, namely: four books of Caesar's Gallic War for the
Sophomore class; six of the orations of Cicero for the junior class;
and six books of Vergil's Aeneid for the seniors. In the three upper
classes, one period on Latin composition is required each week.

Among the variations introduced into the regular recitation work
are the following:

A. In the freshman class:

1. Use of perception cards.

2. Latin contests modelled after the old-fashioned spelling
matches with the substitution of Latin vocabularies.

3. Latin conversation consisting for the most part of questions
and answers with regard to syntax, some of the most common ex-
pressions of ordinary conversation, the names of days of the week, etc.

B. In the sophomore class:

1. Tiie singing of Latin songs.

C. In the junior class:

1. The memorizing and delivery of selected portions of the ora-
tions of Cicero.

1). In the senior class:

1. The composition of Latin poems.

i'. Essays upon special subjects taken from the Aeneid, the
value of niythology, etc.



ANNUAL TOWN REPORT 31



The class in ancient history with Botsford's "History of the
Ancient World, " as a text book, are using the Ivanhoe note books by
way of supplementary work. The pupils are encouraged to bring to
class any articles they may' find that have a direct bearing upon
ancient history. Special reports and the reading of "Quo .Vadis"
or ' ' The Last Days of Pompeii ' ' are required.

The class in American history is using as a text book Muzzey's
"American History." The following are some of the departures
from the regular requirements:

A. Friday is reserved for debating and the discussion of current
events or other topics of general interest.

B. Each member of the class is required to give a five-minute
speech on some special topic from American history when assigned by
the teacher.

C. Selected passages from such books as "Pan-Americanism,"
' ' Secrets of the German War-Ofiice ' ', etc., are read and discussed to
develop the desire for independent reading and thinking.

D. During the year the reading of at least one historical novel is
required.

The foregoing outline does not of course cover all the variations
introduced into the several subjects, but they will, perhaps, be suffi-
cient to suggest the general nature of the methods pursued.

The work done by the various classes has, on the whole, been very
satisfactory and the pupils have shown sufficient interest arid ability
to make the teaching a pleasure.

EEPORT OF THE COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT.

To THE Superintendent of Schools:

In submitting this report I am able to state that the department
is now well organized, and is accomplishing its purpose. It is offer-
ing a practical business training.

The study of Bookkeeping is begun in the first year and continues
throughout the second year. The first year of this course provides
ample practise in recording business transactions, receiving and pre-
paring the accompanying business papers. The work of the second
years applies the principles, already learned, to special lines of busi-
ness, such as: retailing, commission, wholesaling, and manufacturing.
It requires the keeping of more complicated sets of books adapted to
the requirements of the transactions introduced, and further practice
in the handling of vouchers.

ANNUAL TOWN REPORT



Slu.rtlmn.l an.l Typewriting are presented in the thirrl an.l fourth
yi-:.rs Tlie aim of the instruction during these two years is to tram
tlie pupil to take dictation accurately and rapidly ou a variety of
matter, to readily rea.l his notes, and to typewrite from them a well
spelled', correctly punctuated, and neatly arranged transcript. Fil-
ing, hilling, composing of business letters, and other office work re-
ceive careful attention.

Tlu' majority of the pupils are manifesting great interest in their
work, and the j.rogress in each subject shows a marked improvement
ityvv that of last year. The department equips the pupil for his
his work, but his success or failure depends to a great extent upon
liimself and his attitude towards the responsibilities he must later
unilertake.

Respectfully submitted,
EDITH M. KNIGHT, Conmiercial Teacher.



SCIENCE DEPARTMENT.

To TIIK HrrKKlN'TEXDENT OF SCHOOLS:

The course in Algebra is required of Freshman and elective for
Seniors. The aim is to give the Seniors a tliorough review to prepare
them for college and to initiate the Freshman into the mysteries of
the science. Both classes have on the whole shown both interest and
industry in this work. Well's "Algebra" is used.

The class in Commercial Arithmetic has been somewhat . handi-
cajjped for want of a suitable recitation room. The Latin room is
too small and there is not sufficient blackboard space for the best re-
sults. I would suggest that the work be made a half year's course
next year instead of a year's course as it now is.

General Science is as yet in the experimental stage in the high
school currilum. Hessler's "General Science" has proven an ex-
cellent book. It takes up briefly, but clearly physics, chemistrj', bot-
any, geology, and physiology. The aim is to give the student a bet-
ter understanding of every day phenomena and to broaden his ideas
of the conunon phenomena.

The classes in physics and chemistry have three recitations and
two laljoratory jteriods a. week. While we have very good apparatus
anil equipment the addition of a Blau Gas system would be a great
ailvaiitage. We expect to have new text books in both courses next
year.

Respectfully submitted,

H. CRANDLEMIRE.

Mr. David Thurston and wife have had charge of the farm for the
past year. Mr. Tliurston keeps everything about the barn clean and
in good shape. The stock is looking as well as we ever saw it.

We have pujfc a new roof on the long shed connected with the barn
as we found the old boards and some of the rafters were rotten when
we started in to shingle.

Mrs. Thurston takes great interest in the house and everything in
her department is well looked after.

There has been a larger call for pauper supplies this year than usu-
al, but many of them have been from poor of other towns and state
so that our bills are not much larger than for past years. Mrs Jordan
is much feebler than last year. She is still with Mrs. Eicliardson,
who gives her the be^t of care and attention, and we feel that the
town can not do any better than to keep her where she is. We are
paying $18.00 per month for her board and care, and furnish two
cords of wood for the winter.
