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
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.
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
The Illustrated Review is received
with thanks by Anson Academy and
we greatly appreciate this kindness
on the part of the giver.

'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-
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
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.

The Boy Who Would A'Skating Go
"But, mother why can't I?" asked
Elliot. "George, Edward and Jack
"Because, answered his mother,
"you know that you have to study
for that examination tomorrow. Be-
sides," she added, "you might get on
the thin ice. Now clon't ask me again
for that is final."
Elliot walked into his father's of-
fice dejected. He sat down on the
"O, dear," he sighed, "why can't
I do what I want to? I might go
skating just as well as not if mother
only thought so. The ice is perfectly
safe and I can get up early in the
morning and study."
The more he thought of it the more
he wanted to go. "Jack and Edward
and George will he there," he mused.
Suddenly a hrilliant idea popped in-
to his head. Why not go anyway?
She would never know it. Mother
just kept him in because she couldrft
go. On thinking it over he decided
that he was being ill treated and he
would go now anyway, Whether she
found it out or not. Having decided
his course 'of' action he lay down on
the couch, thinking that he would
lie there and make his plans until
supper time. He closed his eyes and
soon went to sleep.
When all the family had withdrawn
to the sitting room, mother with her
sewing and father with his papers,
he tiptoed out softly, taking his
skates with him. When safely out-
side he ran for the ice as fast as he
could., Arriving there breathless, he
looked around for the boys, but they
were not in sight. However he put
his skates on and began cutting a
circle, thinking they would come
