If you feel as though there were still
time this Summer for the Indulgence
of vacation frills and fancies just step
Into the Library Hall at the Central
Library either today or tomorrow and
you will find that Fall seriousness has
supplanted Summer frivolity. Between
150 and 200. teachers of Multnomah
County are there In session, and all the
Joys of vacation days become dim re
membrances In contemplation of the
coming term's exacting duties.
The annual session of the Multno
mah -County teachers was opened yes
terday at 9 o'clock with Hunter's Juve
nile Orchestra in familiar school songs.
An outline of the work of the institute
given, by D. A. Grout, First Assistant
City School Superintendent, was' fol
lowed by a talk on correspondence
work, exemptions and home credits,
by A. P. Armstrong. County Superin
tendent. At noon a temporary dis
missal was made and the teachers re
assembled at 1 o'clock In the after
Charles Robison Gives Talk.
The afternoon session was opened
by vocal numbers from Fritz De
ilruln and Miss Minnie Nemorovsky,
Following these Charles Robison. in
structor in public speaking in the Port
land night schools. lectured on the
"Merchant of Venice." Mr. Robison de
clared that if he were a school super
intendent he would pick men and wo
men as teachers "who had brains of
their own and could use them." so that
the beauty of Shakespeare's works
could be impressed upon the mind of
the student. "Too many teachers stick
to critics and look for history or phi
losophy In Shakespeare's plays. Don't
look for the history and the philosophy
but feast upon the beauty of the lines.
For Shakespeare was the Mozart of
words. Of all the men who ever han
dled the Knglish language Shakespeare
grouped the words most beautifully."
Mr. Robison accompanied his lecture
by the reading of parts of "The Mer
chant of Venice."
"Experiments In Education' Topic.
B. w. DeBusk, a new professor In
the department of education at the
Vnlversity of Oregon, closed the first
afternoon session of the institute. He
spoke on "Experiments in Education."
In discussing certain phases of exper
imental pedagogy Mr. DeBusk first
talked briefly of the Blnet tests that
reveal the relation between the physi
cal growth and the mental development
of the child. He then told of his own ex
periments upon bright and retarded
'hlldren, explaining the differences
that lay between them as shown in the
relation of lung capacity to . weight.
He declared that the retarded chil
dren were far inferior to the bright
ones in that respect, and that the low
ratio recorded was invariably as
sociated with a slow rate of maturity
and a low percentage in the mental

STAMP SALES INCREASE
August Only Month of Tear With
Gain Over 1 2 Months Aro.
Fostoffice receipts are considered a

terday a gain of $181.62 was shown
over the receipts for the same month
in 1914. This exceeds the estimate

Carrier's Flight Doubted.
O. V. A'Iamfl, of the Oregon Homing
Pigeon Club. has expressed doubt
that a carrier pigeon had flown from
Norwalk. O.. to Los Angeles, Cal., in
five days, nine hours, 31 minutes and
10 seconds. The distance is about 2200
miles. - The disputed statement was
contained in a Los Angeles dispatch.
'Carrier pigeons are not used for long
distance trips." said Mr. Adams. "Only
a homing pigeon could have made the
fiight. I think the former record long
distance flight for a homing pigeon
was 1160 miles.
