_11 _Ii ~~~ - _i / f_(_i ~ 74 ~~~ & ~~~~~ d ~~ */ Z /Z ~ _( _~ & ~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ 4 THE FREE LANCE. Void. _i. STATE COLLEGE , PA., APRIL _1887. No. i. THIS issue is _d elayed beyond the time set for its appearing, owing to inconvenience in procur ing the services of a publisher. Hereafter the publication will be issued near the _mid _d le of each month. F there be anything in the history of Ithis institution that admits of reproach , it is the lamentable fact that the stu dents, notwithstanding their creditable rank in so many other respects, have never exhibited sufficient enterprise to publish a jou rnal. We shall offe r no apology for unintentional conservatism. The case illustrates the force, the inert ia of precedent—a thing partic _u larl y noticeable in groups of isolated society. Some of our stuidents of jou rnalistic proclivities have more than once agitat-‘ ~ ed the question of printing a monthl y, but , being loath to disturb the easy monotoñy of daily stud y...

The European one does both therefore, our colleg ian s are em inent ly men of use, of action , while theirs are either philosop hers or sophists, becoming the latter—mental clyspeptics from feeding on dry dogmas—when the student has not the strength and capacity for enduring i n the rea l m of pure reason. The Amer ican college , then , has grown to be the hand maid of citizenship in its broad est sense and College Journalism is an additional step on the part of stucleiits to make her ministry more comp lete.

H E American Protective Tariff League in offering to the student ’s of senior classes’ of colleges andi universitie s in the United States a series of prize s for appr oved essays on "The Advantages of a Protective Tariff to the Labor Industries of the Unite _d States, " will , no _d oubt , excite many studl ents to a _broad er studl y of the tariff question , an issue which has called forth more dliscussion in the history of nations , and has been the inci _d ent of more political trickery, than any other public problem. Since college professot’s of political economy almost universall y incline to the side of free tradl e, many a _stud ent will enter upon a treatmeri t of ‘the other sidl e with reluctance hut he may find in the growth of American industry along with its actual history as regards protection , ample facts, sufficient indeed to prove the benefits if not the necessity of a protective system in a country like ours.

THE NORMAL SCHOOLS. BY PROF. J OHN W. _lIE STON , A. _Id_, FOR some time the educational papers of Pennsy lvania have been calling attention to the Normal Schools of the State, the ‘ character of their work , their inability to give an education broad and extended enough to meet the requirements of teachers at the present time, etc., etc. The interest awakened by the discussion of this subject warrants its introduction in a College paper, and this more especiall y, since it seems concedled by all that the Colleges of the State must take tip the work of training teachers for the common schools. The ventilation of this whole subject was begun by Dr. E. H. Magill , President of Swarthmore College. He believes that teachers require the same careful and elaborate preparation for their work that is required for entering upon the other professions. He also considers the courses of stud y in our Normal Schools inadequate and particularl y deficient , because the attempt is there made to tra...

to associate with those of like aims and aspiratio ns, and abo ve all to breathe a’ professional atmosphere and live a life full of the spirit and zeal that alone can give a promise of professional success. The reason which ex-superintendi-~ nt Wickersham places above all, viz : "to breathe a professional atmosphere , etc," is one of the strongest arguments that can be presented against the pi’esent plan. It is a notorious fact and one admitted by men who have experienced the evil , that Normal life reall y injures a man seriousl y because lie is led to believe that there are no attainments beyond and that his course : of stud y has embraced everything worth knowing. Young people preparing fo r teachers are all the better associating with _per t Sons securing training for other professions. It enables them to measure their capacity for development with those wholike them are to do the work of the world!, and their preparation woul d ten _d to be all the more securel y andl intellige...

ment , thorough knowled ge of the common school branches has not been obtained!. As a consequence ,, while our pupils in the common schools secure a sm atter ing of mus ic, drawing, physiology, ect. , they get nothing like’ a soun d, thorou gh knowled ge, even of elements of arithmatic , readling and_! english grammar. This deficiency in the elementary branc hes cr ~ pples the work of all hi gher institutions of learning and makes it necessary for them to ma inta in departments for doing the’ ver y work the common schools were intendccl to do. Nothing better need be cxpected until the teacher is more thor—oughl y edlucate _di himself, and the first dut y of ever y common school be, now and always , to give a sound elementary _ed ucat ion to all its pup ils.
