The Lib rarv On the third floor of the Teachers College is its library. It is a large, well-lighted room and in it are both circulating and reference libraries, which together comprise about 20,000 volumes. This collection of books is an outgrowth of the old Cook County Normal School Library. Mien the Cook Count} ' Xornial became the City .Normal, through the instrumentality of Col. Parker, who was very much interested in library work, .Miss Irene Warren was secured, and she re-organized the library and during her last ' ear conducted a librarv train- ing class, of which Miss Bates, the puesent assistant, was a member. Miss Warren also THE LIBR. RV began the card catalogue, which has since been completed b - the present librarian and her assistant. Miss Dickey, who is librarian now, came in 1 :89 and Miss Bates, her assistant, came a year later, and together they have worked very efficiently for the good of the library. In 1883, the library contained some three hundred and fifty volumes; si.x years later, there were 6,342 books to its credit; and to-day the accession book shows a total of 22,000 volumes, of which, however, only 20,000 are actually in use. Over 1,300 of these were added this year. This accession book shows a history of the growth of the librar - and in it is entered every book purchased. It, together with a complete card index and the classification of 9

Parker at the Cook County Normal School, the press of the Chicago Normal School has grown to be one of fine equipment and great efficiency. Besides printing material needed by the Board of Education and various pamphlets for the different departments of the College, the press also issues The Parker High School Weekly, The Chicago Normal School Weekly, and The Educational Bi-Monthly. The Weekly is a bulletin for the College conducted by a staff made up of college students. The Bi-Monthly is a magazine for which articles are contributed by faculty members of various institutions, representing their ideas and opinions in their special subjects. Copies are furnished the teachers of the city without charge. The press division is in charge of a force assigned to it by the Civil Service Commission. The Normal Arts and Gymnasium Building All the students of the Teachers College know that a building has been planned to provide for instruction in the arts and to supply one of the greatest needs of the College, a gymnasium. So much has been said of the building and so little seen, that some have begun to wonder whether it had any other existence than that of a fond hope. Recently, however, the first tangible evidence of progress was presented to the students. A number of valuable elms and trees of other sorts which stood on the ground of the projected build- ing were transplanted to the space in front, an action that illustrates modern methods of conserving our real assests. More can be said of the progress of the building. The Board of Education and the City Council appropriated one hundred and fifty thousand dollars additional for the building during the year, making the total available three hundred and fift - thousand dollars. The plans have been practically completed, and it is expected that bids will be called for before the close of the year. This means that with good fortune the building ought to be ready for occupancy before the close of the school year 1913. Some slight notion of what the erection of this new building means for the Chicago Teachers College may be gained by recalling that it contains a magnificent gymnasium, with swimming pools, baths, dressing-rooms, rooms for medical examination, rest-rooms, etc.; a fully equipped series of shops for wood working, metal working, electrical construc- tion, etc.; complete and adequate studios for the fine and applied arts; kitchens, a laundry, two living apartments, sewing rooms, dyeing-rooms, in a word all that goes with the best known equipment for the household arts. This added equipment will not of itself bring progress, but it will make growth, expansion, and progress possible. William Bishop Owen. 8

the library under the Dewey Decimal Classification system, make a modern and practical one. The students find the bound volumes of magazines most helpful, since there are complete sets of most of the more useful; and with the aid of Poole ' s Index to Periodical Literature some very valuable reference work is done in the school. Another special collection of which we are justly proud is the one small section of books on the Drama, the Stage, and Stage-folk, which are being donated by the S. D. C. Thirty books have been added to this collection during the past year. But our library is more then a book room; for the bulletin board is made very attractive by the arrangement of pictures of some sort, and by special pictures for special days. An apt quotation or a short biographical sketch of the artist sometimes accompanies the pictures. In short, we all agree with some one who said that " Next to knowing a thing is knowing where to find it. " Nellie M. Day. Why Practice Teachers Go Mad " Yes, John is such a nervous child. No one understands him. " " I don ' t see why it ' s necessary to make so much of such a little thing. " " He never had a bit of trouble in the other school. " " I didn ' t put it there. " " Oh, you ' re going too fast. " " I didn ' t hear what you said. " " Oh, look, there ' s a mouse. " " Do we have to do that again to-day. " " Can I pass the papers. ' " " You said you ' d let me do that and now he ' s doing it. " " I don ' t know. I wasn ' t here yesterday. " " I can ' t write, I ' ve got a sore finger. " " Teacher, may I get a drink. ' " " I can ' t sing soprano, my voice is changing. " " Let me be leader. ' " " I had to stay home, my mother was sick. " " I can ' t take gymnasium. The doctor said it wasn ' t good for me. " " Make him stop poking me. " " I can ' t sing, I ' ve got a bad cold. " " Aww! " " I saw a man in the nickel show — " " No, he isn ' t sick, I saw him outside. " " She ' s always pickin ' on me. " " I don ' t care, I didn ' t copy it! Irene Frank. WHO. ' One misty, moisty morning When cloudy was the weather, I met a supervisor With a face like patent leather. In the misty, moisty morning. His voice quite cut me through: " How did you do it. ' How did you do it? Bluffing the way you do! " — Pauline B. Rosair 10
