The scheduled nrogram was
not followed precisely, as the
absence of Mrs: Sadie Orr
Dunbar, statte institutions
chairman, during the morning
session, compelled the omit
tance of the opening address.
Mrs. A. L. Wallace, president
of the Saletn club,-presided
during the forenoon.
The opening address of the in
stitute was made by Mrs. June
Nlssen of the girls' industrial
school. Mrs. Nissen emphasised
the fact that the work done by
the state school was-mainly some
training in the endeavor to "huild
np the moral fiber of the girls
and give them some idea of home
life. She laid most of adolescent
delinquency to lack of home train
ing, as "did Superistendent L. M:
Gilbert of the state training school
for boys, whose address followed
that of Mrs. Nissen's. Mr. Gil
bert also told of the new methods
of study and training which are
being advocated by child psychol
J. W. Howard, superintendent
of the state school for the blind.

much flutter and more vigorous.
And I am not troubled with dand
ruff any more. At the time X start,
