"The school is no longer a peunl in

where boys who hnve made mistakes

kind should be a man who has special
training along these lines. I have con

PROF. ELLIOTT TALKS
TO BOM GIRLS
Makes Valuable Suggestions
as to Keeping Young
"I wouldn't give a snap for a boy
who would not take off his coat and
tight for what he thought was right,"
declared Superintendent Elliott last
night in his address before tnc Hix
O 'Clock club of the First Methodist
church. "Pugnacity is ono of the
hoy's instincts and it is a good tmng
for the boy it used rigntiy.
"A boy is a bundle of instincts, ot
possibilities and tendencies. Every
bov his within him tho possibilities of
being great and good, nnd in my 20 '
years experience with nova l nave
found but one who was totally deprav
'A boy may inherit the physical
but always the mental traits of his
parents. It is for tho parents as well
as the teacher to direct him."
Mr. Elliott was of the opinion that
educators wero just beginning to ap
preciate the imitative instinct in boys
and that imitation plays a great part
in the hie of a child.
Acquisitiveness, or the desiro to col
lect things was an instinct of tho boy
that should be directed and if not con
trolled might lead to dishonesty. "No
instinct is worth more in maturity,"
said Mr. Elliott, "than this desire to
acquire, and properly controlled, gives
one the power to supply our wants in
Eoya Like to Construct.
Another instinct noted by Superin
tendent Elliott wns that of constiuct
iveness, or tiio craving to build or
construct. The boys must make ot
build something. "Salem is tho best
city that I hive ever known in which
to raise boys. Tho best place for a
boy is at homo in his father's base
ment. (et your boys tools," urged Mr.
Elliott," and let him work in the base
ment. They are a hundred fold bet
ter off working in the basement than
staving on the streets."
The tendency of boys to form in
groups wns referred to by the speaker.
Boys will organizo themselves in
groups ind instead of attempting to
break up the group, it is bettor for tho
teacher or parent to become one of them
and direct their efforts. Petty steal
ing is more a group or gang problem,
but with the boys directed right by
having an older head directing, theme
would be no trouble.
" Wo put too much stress on football
and basketball. Instead of develop
ing a dozen or two boys, we hopo in
time to put our energies towards the
physical development of every boy and
girl in the city. I jur happy to say
that the school board of directors are
working out a plan of physical instruc
tion next year by which tbe whole
school will bo benefitted and not a
dozen or more.
The Social problem,
Tho social problem was also discuss
ed by Mr. Elliott. "Wiry are girls
found at the jitney duneet Because
there is no other organized effort to
supply them with wholesome amuse
ment. I asked why a certain young
girl went to these jitney dances and
luund out that this was the only place
in town to which sho could go for
amusement." Tho superintendent
urgod that sonic means lie found of di
recting tiio social activities of the
young folks in order tint a girl would
not go to a jitney dunco for her recre
ation. in closing, tho superintendent gave
a little advice to the fathers. "Above
all, your boys need tho companionship
of a man, and that man should ho the
father. Most hoys hivo gone wrong
because thev never got on living terms
with their fathers. They just know
their fathers as the men who comes
home at meal times."
The address was regarded by nil as
one of the most interesting as well as
practical talks th.it has been delivered
before tho Six O'clock club.
always be kept nt the head of this in
stitution." "However," said Mr, llnle, "when
ever a man is brought forward who is
butter qualified to handle the school in
the best interests of the boys nnd the
state I am ready to quit without n mur
mur, hut, in the meantime, 1. will con
tinue to direct the institution to the
best of my ability mid will pay no at
tention to any political rumors even
though they do have it iu the papers
that I am to be removed."
