to the rollcall and it is prob able that these absentees will be pres ent before the institute closes This Is considered a remarkably good show ing and indicates that the teachers feel commendable interest in the work of tile institute Miss May E Dexter cut out the per functory preliminaries to the evident satisfaction of nlj present There were no addresses of welcome and responses bnL the institute lost no time in getting iigiit down to the serious business of Uie session Miss Hattie Lee made a motion that the institute ratify the appointment ol officers made by the superintendent and the motion prevailed These are Airs L D Lawhead Edgar Hunter and Miss Kathryn Simmons vicepresi donts and Jliss March B Clements secretary Hev G A Charnock offered the in vocation and Mrs Mary Roberts Cool idge sang an English and an Irish ballad Tho educational feature of the insti tute opened with a lecture by E Morris Cox president of the California Teach ers Association lye theme was Hearing Lighting and Ventilating j Schoolrooms An address occupying forty minutes and discussing a subject of so much general interest cannot be synopsized and do justice to the speak er in the limited space at our disposal nnd therefore we shall not attempt it The address was full of timely sugges tions and useful information Mrs Mary Roberts Coolidge next de livered an Interesting lecture on Co Education as a Social Factor After a brief intermission Mr Cox closed the afternoon session with an instructive lecture on What the Schools Shall Gain From More Effect ive Teachers Organizations The evening session was devoted en tirely to Mrs Mary Roberts Coolidge who gave a most interesting discourse on old English ballads with vocal il v Thoie was a large attendance and Mrs Coolidge charmed her hearers She opened her remarks by giving a brief history of the ballads and by tell ing of the characteristics chief of which she said was simplicity Often the tune was sacrificed for the story Every ballad had a well defined story hut rarely ever a moral One of the oldest ballads Chevy Chase had CQ verses to the tune of The Hunt is Up Mrs Coolidge sang several ot the verses Among other vocal il lustrations she rendered Pastime in Good Company Bailiffs Daughter of Islington O What a Plague Is Iove Ballad of the Spanish Lady Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes Mrs Coolidge then gave a number of illustrations from ballads in Shake speares plays They included ballads v snug by Falstaff Desdemona Lover and His Lass from As You Like It and one from Winters Tale She rendered Barbara Allen as an illustration of the period of Charles il She declared there were few bal lads ot any beauty In the 18th century Mary Dawsons Hornpipe was one of the best and Early One Morning As an illustration of the 19th century Khe rendered Allen Percy At the conclusion in response to per sistent applause Mrs Coolidge ren tared the Aloha or farewell song of Hawaii familiar to many With all due respect to the English ballad it was in our humble judgment by far the most pleasing selection rendered during the evening Today the Institute Is in session at the state farm The program was ar
