K' 'slllitll-HUgll0S Agricultural Fund Anson Academy is greatly inter- 'ested in the Smith-Hughes Agricul- ural Fund. From the standpoint of expectancy we have formed plans for carrying out this federal act to encourage vocational training in sec- ondary schools, should we be so for- tunate as to be one of these schools. The federal government gives finan- cial aid to the extent of tive hundred dollars or one half the instrcutor's salary, the state also appropriates this amount, a certain per cent being witheld, in some cases for home arts work, musical, or other courses in di- rect accordance with advanced edu- cation. It should be understood that each county must have an instructor and he must be a person with adequate training and practical experience to meet the satisfaction of the state di- rector. The school laboratory must be equipped with apparatus and sup- plies for carrying out the work, to the value of two hundred and fifty dollars, each class under instruction must spend at least ninety minutes each day in the presence of the in- structor, which time may be spent in field work, laboratory, recitation or study. The work is to be carried out through the summer at the farms on which the boys live, The instruc- tor is to his neighborhood what the county agent is to the county. We feel that this work has already 6:5 i ,i K, . advanced far in its organization, al- though the actual theory will not be carried out until this fall. Over The Top Anson Academy has ideals, reali- zations, ambitions and prospects. There has always been a good deal of so called "pep" linked up with the institution. It is essential that we continue to hold up in practice as well as in theory the principles of school spirit. The seating capacity in the assem- bly room has been increased this year until the room has become so full that actual Hoor space is wanting. Our in- clination toward public activities, speaking. reading, social functions, along athletic linesg basket ball, phys- ical exercises etc., is decidedly hand- icapped owing to lack of room, where we can be absolutely indepen- dent of outside plans and arrange- ments which inevitably confiict with those of the Academy. We here re- quest that the friends and trustees of Anson Academy put forth every effort to bring about the remodeling of the Universalist church so that we may have a well equipped gymnasium in the basement and a stage and audi- torium suited to school festivities on the first floor. Anson Acaidelny is the place. Iiverywlicre XVCIJB in the race, XVe give each one :L lively chase, Their champion records we deface. Over the top.

'19 The Teacher Training Class The teacher training class is fast coming into line. For several years we have been trying to build up a system for sending out -graduates suitably trained and with sufficient pedigogical and psychological knowl- edge to enable them to perform the duties of rural or grade teachers with a greater degree of efficiency. Mean- while they will be profiting by the ex- perience and furnishing themselves with means for pursuing a special or normal course that will increase their own knowledge and make it pos- sible for them to instruct pupils a- long more thoro and advanced lines. This year a remarkably successful course is being carried out. The class is made up of Junior and Senior Annan Arahrmg girls. The work takes up the funda- mental principles of psychology, ru- ral and grade observations, school management and school laws. We hope for continued and greater sue- cess along these lines. The editors wish to thank the as- sistants for their efforts to gather material for the Anchor. We feel that our work has not been in vain and hope that the appearance of the first 1919 paper will be a compensa- tion for the time and labor spent on its completion. Acknowledgements The faculty and students of Anson Academy wish to thank Dr. Marston for his kindness in contributing to the Academy the Bowdoin Oriient. Some unknown person, but a posi- tive friend to Anson Academy, has very kindly sent us the Maine Cam- pus, and we wish to thank the one to whom we are indebted for this kindness. The Illustrated Review is received with thanks by Anson Academy and we greatly appreciate this kindness on the part of the giver. lqnnnr Illini Major Perley F. Walker Lieut. I-I. Edward Marston Capt.
