Dear Sylvia Star: The children in my school are studying birds. In one of our windows we have placed a trough of bird feed, a small basin where the birds can take a bath and a small can of water. By a study of bird charts we are able to attract the kind of bird we wish to study by giving him the food he likes. The trees in our school yard are full of the little songsters as a result of our plan.

Colored lentils are excellent to work with. I have squares of cardboard that fit the tops of the desks. These cards have holes punched in them in regular rows, each hole is large enough to hold lentil. I give directions to fill the to with yellow lentils, the next row with blue, etc. Sometimes it is a number game and perhaps four red lentils are to be placed in the top row; ten green ones in the next, etc.

The texts are alluring and profusely illustrated. Civic activities are suggested in the stories, poems, and questions at the close of the chapters. In each book the purpose is to understand the nature of the service rendered and that the acquiring of information is but incidental.

a recent bond issue for $126,000 by a majority of 12 to 1. The money will be used to erect a twelveunit grammar school building. This will make five grammar school buildings in the Monrovia system. In the handling of mancal training and household arts Mr. Cliiton has excluded the duplicating of equipment by having pupils from the various schools go to one central school for this work. Of recent origin has been the inauguration of a monthly fire inspection trip by Mr. Clilton and the chief of the Monrovia fire department.
