THE MASTER OF THE SHIP
A ship must have it's Captain. An aeroplane must needs he guided by its pilot.
A nation must have its king, its emperor, its president, or even its Mussolini. Every
organization must have a guiding influence, whether for good or bad. A school
must have its principal.
The ship with a careless captain in northern waters will crash into an iceburgg
in southern waters it will not weather a typhoon. The aeroplane controlled by
unskilled hands will make a faulty landing and crash into bits or burn into oblivion.
The nation with a weak ruler will be led into wars, panics, and disaster. How good
and comforting to be placed into strong, wise hands. What a priceless jewel to a
school is a good principal!
Under his capable direction good is made better, and better is made best. The
delinquent youth is given careful attention. All the students are brought together
in their enthusiasm by his subtle supervision, and they cooperate in building a
school, firmly founded. He deprives himself of personal pleasures and benefits to
further the interests of the school. He places his very heart and soul in this work
of moulding many young lives-this "Master of the Ship."
To be a friend of reading is an inexhaustible source of pleasure. Reading is one
of those things that is everyone's friend. It does not make the demands that some
people think friendship gives them the privilege to. Always it is ready to entertain,
to enlighten, and to comfort. The only trouble is that so few people have become
acquainted with this friend.
Most poeple read either too much or not enough. There are those people who
never pick up a book unless forced to. They cannot imagine the pleasure they are
missing: pleasure not only in the sense of being entertained but of having learned
something that can be stored up in the mind as food for thought. From books is
gained all that knowledge which has been accumulated through all of the ages of
civilization and without which every person is worse off for not having. Then
there are the people who read incessantly. They read any and everything. This:
leads to a tendency to live too much in a world oi' dreams and make believe.
But there is another abuse of this friend reading. Some people read all books
of one kind. This will be noticed especially among people of high school age. Here
three is a great tendency to read only the books that were to entertain for a
moment and then to be forgotten. This is the reason for the requirements of the
history. government and English classes.
The English classes, especially, emphasize parallel reading. They aitextipt to
cultivate a real love for reading by helping the pupil to become better acquainted
with all types of literature, modern works, the classics, novels short stories, poems,
biographies, and essays.
