Strong, B. Bruen Not Shown: E. McAllister, P. Fox One cold frosty morning in the year 1840, several boys waited furtively, but gleefully, in a country store opposite the schoolhouse. They were waiting for the bell to ring, but nine o'clock came, and no bellg nine-thirty and then ten, - still no bell. These boys, the night before, had palntaklngly climbed to the belfry, turned the bell over and filled it with water, knowing that by morning it would be frozen and no bell could summon them to class. Inside the schoolhouse was one large room with a long, low stove near the center for heat and desks were built along the walls. The teacher.was en- throned upon a platform where his all-seeing eye could detect the playful or the loiterer, and with a birch ruler bring him back to the pursuit of knowledge. Even with all that has been said and written about these early schools, they were a definite step forward in free, public education. It was left for America to provide universal education, Education was needed for everyone if people were to understand the principles and problems of American Democracy. Standards have been rapidly advanced for teacher tralningg men and women are entering the profession today to pursue it as their life work. America Marches On! - and with it, Education goes hand in hand.
