Excerpt from Manual Training for the Grades, College of Education This College is one of the instrumentalities of the State for the training of teachers. It offers practical and theoretical courses for the professional training of high school teachers and principals, of principals of elementary schools, of supervisors of special studies, of superintendents of school systems, and of instructors in rmal schools. Its purpose is to assist the student in the acquirement of a kwledge of the branches which he wishes to teach, to give him a right attitude toward education, and to establish in him a skill in the use of efficient methods of teaching. The demand for trained teachers has increased rapidly. The College has been in existence for five years, and has graduated four classes. All its graduates were appointed to positions as soon as they were ready for them. The call for teachers in certain lines, viz., science, mathematics, and manual training, has been greater than the college could supply. It is earnestly hoped that many students may see the opportunity open in these fields and prepare for the work. The effort of the college is to bring into proper adjustment within the limits of a four-year course the academic training, the theoretical professional training, and the practical professional training necessary for a teacher.
