College News and Departmental Notes: Rural Education

by Departmental notes - 1922

The Rural Club has conducted a very interesting series of meetings during the past semester. On February 15 Professor John Erskine of the department of English in Columbia University gave a delightful evening of readings selected from the poetry of country life. On February 20 films of the well-known consolidated school at Chazy, New York, were shown under the auspices of the Club, and on March 14 the students joined with the Teacher-Training League in celebrating the annual birthday party for Professor Bagley. Professor Henry S. Curtis discussed rural recreation at the following meeting of the Club; and the formal meetings of the year were concluded on April 25 with a rousing Club party imitating the Friday afternoon exercises of a modern rural school. For the final meeting of the year on May 6 the Rural Club and the Teacher-Training League united again as usual for the closing picnic on the Hudson Palisades. Officers for the second semester have been as follows: President, Miss Orpha McPherson, Greenwood, Mo.; vice-president, Mr. H. K. Ober, Elizabethtown, Pa.; secretary, Miss Esther Jastram, Chadron, Neb.; and treasurer, Miss Florence Farber, Hamburg, N. J.
