College News and Departmental Notes: The Secondary Club

by Departmental notes - 1916

The Secondary Club of Teachers College numbers a membership of one hundred and twenty-five to one hundred and fifty persons whose chief interests are concerned with the problems of secondary education. The club meets once a month. At these meetings some speaker presents a problem in secondary education which is then followed by a free discussion among the members. Thus Professor Snedden spoke on "The High Schools of the Future," and Dean Russell on "The Contributions of Foreign School Systems." In the near future it is planned to have Professor Kilpatrick discuss the problem of military education. However, the club does not neglect the social side and an especial attempt has been made to interest the wives of members; accordingly, they have taken an unusually active part in the social life of the club. After the more serious address and discussion of the evening all seek recreation in an informal program composed of music by a mixed quartet, and in community singing and folk dancing. This last is under the direction of Miss Margaret H'Doubler, a member of the club from Wisconsin, who bears with her as a trophy of her successful drilling of folk dancers elsewhere, a beautiful silver whistle with which to call the figures of the dance. The club has entered heartily into the spirit of this innovation.
