A class limited in number will be held for children where they are encouraged in original
thinking, and any tendency towards mimicry or imitation is discouraged. The child acquires
the ability to say what he has to say, whether it be l1is own words or the memorized words of
another, with a sincerity and interest growing out of his understanding of the subject. Any
effort to coach him towards a mechanical interpretation is carefully avoided. The child
learns the fundamental principles of criticism,improvement in sight reading, and in the
appreciation of the emotional value of words. The stimulation of the imagination and the direc-
tion of the dramatic instincts are the ends sought in the course. Pantomine and extcmpo-
raneous story telling are distinctive l'e:1tures. Two private lessons and one class lesson each
week constitute the ehildren's course.

A "home" is the purpose of the dormitory. The word implies comfort,
convenience, sociability, relaxation and pleasant surroundings. Such a home
is the dormitory of the Louisville Conservatory located near the Administration
building, in one of the old and fashionable residence sections of the city. There
are few regulations other than those found in the average well regulated home.
The management makes every effort to confine the residence enrollment to con-
scientious and dependable girls so that only such rules as provide safeguards
incident to maintaining high standards are necessary. The Conservatory is
non-sectarian and students are expected to attend the churches of their faith.
The building is equipped with modern heating and Ventilating systems,
ample plumbing and lighting. There are well appointed reception rooms, and
large, airy dormitories. A spacious dining room and sanitary kitchen insure
wholesome well prepared food. The cuisine is in charge of a dietarian who devotes
her entire time to supervising the preparation of the best and most seasonable
food the market affords. In this connection it may not be amiss to mention
that the L. C. M. dormitory is especially noted for the variety, the plentifulness
and the unfailing excellence of its food.
The dormitory home and the administ1'ation building are situated within
the radius of a few squares of churches of all denominations, the beautiful Pres-
