What Syllahut Tu submitting "his report In refer- ence to the request of the Pentecostal church, tho superintendent stated that neither the teachers nor tho physical Instructor havo deflected from the course prescribed In the syllabus of physical exercises published by the executive council of the Strathcona Trust. In tho course prescribed cer- tain dancing steps are recommended, and teachers, during their training in the Normal and Summer schools, have been required to attain efficiency in this branch of physical culture work. The following excerpt from the sylla- bus was quoted: "Dancing if properly taught is one of tho most useful means of promoting a graceful car- riage, with free and easy movements, ditions which have prevailed this win- ter and also in view of the mild win- ter which is a factor In milk produc- tion it was supposed by a great many persons that the yrice of milk wouhl be very materially reduced.

The superintendent pointed out that undue attention has not been given to this branch of physical cul- ture, nor has it been specially stress- ed, except when preparation was made for the play festival and for! demonstrations at the time of the i teachers' convention.
