PRESIDENT'S ANNUAL MESSAGE
I should like to note briefly the salient accomplishments and changes of the past year and to report even more briefly the observable results of the past five years. The College, as well as the Normal School which preceded it. has had state-wide recognition because of competent, skilful, and devoted teaching: the emphasis may have changed from time to time but the objectives have ever been the same.—to train teachers as well as limitations of previous preparation and time would permit. That it has been reasonably successful is best attested by the mark made by its graduates in teaching, in business and the professions, as well as in graduate study in other institutions of higher learning. We have no need to be ashamed.
This year has seen a fine participation of students in musical, dramatic, athletic, forensic, and social activities. These have not become the whole show but they have sought and found their honorable sphere concentric with intellectual accomplishments and teaching skills.
That all of us can see impending change and reorganization, is taken for granted: in this school we have added facilities and strengthened our faculty in the sciences and social studies in preparation for the attempts which we shall make toward as much of unification and synthesis of courses as we deem wise and practicable. The Health program which has been initiated is a start, at least, toward the desirable program which must shortly be undertaken to keep in line with other colleges. The Library has made commendable additions to our reference books and through the assistance of N. Y. A. and W. P. A. workers we have been able to give adequate service for greatly increased, but much needed, hours. Mention must also be made of the work done in our extended day courses: these permit teachers in service, interested adults, and our own students to have a wider choice of subjects and at hours when these courses can be taken.
Three much-loved teachers who have contributed fruitfully for years to the school have this year retired or announced intention of so doing: Mrs. Ruth S. Mace who handled so well the difficult position of Dean of Women, and Miss Ellen F. P. Peake who had been a teacher of Literature here since 1895. resigned at mid-year: Mr. Walter C. Hewitt, the Dean of our faculty and perhaps the best known teacher in the State Teacher. College system, will retire at the end of summer school. All of these teachers were loved and respected by faculty and students because each contributed definitely through personality and accomplishments to the upbuilding of the College.
We still have needs.—many of them in buildings, recreation fields, library books, laboratory facilities, and in additions to the teaching staff, library, and clerical force. We have done well, we think, with our five-year plan of holding fast to that which is of worth and of adding to. where slender resources made it possible: we hope that our S ate Teachers Colleges may be accorded that measure of financial support which will enable them to take their proper place in the State's educational system: and this place, we conclude, ought to be in accordance with the value placed by the State on education. In the long run it will have to be so.
