L P. Harrington, State Field
Industrial Worker, Delivers
Interesting Address.
Great State Wide Contest to
Determine Who Can DoThings
Is Being Launched.
Continued from Tuesday, May 27.
L; P. Harrington, state field indus
trial worker, in his addresses before
the students of the Albany public
schools in the interest of a state wide
contest to determine what the school
children can do and primarily in the
interest ot the Linn county Indus
trial Fair which is to be held at Scio
during the Linn county fair the fore
part of September, when the largest
school exhibits in the history of the
county will be installed, has talked
interestingly of the work as planned
which will no doubt prove interesting
to mothers and fathers ot school chil
dren. During one of his addresses, Mr.
Harrington said in part:
"We are asking boys and girls to
be interested and to help m a great
state wide contest to determine who
can do things that count the best.
The common duties of the home, for
the girl and the boy, are of prime
importance and are emphasized in
this manual contest.
The practical side of education is
being given the attention it deserves.
Oregon has taken an advanced posi
tion in this great nation wide indus
trial and agricultural school move
ment.. Linn county is awake to this
verv important educational move
menr. The county superintendent,
Mr. Jackson, has secured $600 in cash
prizes for the boys and girls of the
county who prepare and send in their
products for the county contest.
The state offers some very fine
prizes for the things that boys and
girls can raise or make. What is of
more importance than home duties,
cooking and sewing for girls, the care
of poultry and stock for boys, also
the use of tools and for all, caring for
a erarden.
"School credits for Home. Work."
when the system has been introduced,
is proving a great incentive to the
bovs and eirls in this industrial work.
There are five prizes for county
exhibits, the first prize being $100.
Could Linn county get any better ad
vertising than to win one of these
