'Con ference,
Steachers Meet
Speaking at the opening session
of the Conference Series for En-
glish Teachers yesterday' Prof.
Robert C. Pooley of the University
of Wisconsin described the histori-
cal background of grammar.
"Grammar legislated what ought.
to happen in language," he said.
"It often became synosomous with
learning in general."
Prof. Pooley, author of "Teach-
ing English Usage" and past presi-
dent of the National Council of
Teachers of English, spoke of the
eighteenth century concept of
English as an uncouth and bar-
baric language in need of polish-
ing.
Prof. Pooley laid the foundation
for the five succeeding lectures,
devoted to "The Teaching of
Grammar and Usage in High
School," by defining grammar as.
it will be used. "Grammar," he
said, "is the way language Is used
to convey meaning.'
The second lecture to be given
on June 27, in the series will deal
with "Facts and Folklore of Ameri-
can Usage." The speaker, Prof.
James B. McMillan, is teacher of
linguistics at the University of
Alabamaoand editorial director of
"American Us a g e Dictionary"
which is now in preparation. He
is also editorial adviser of Thorn-
dike-Barnhart dictionaries.
Prof. Albert H. Marckwardt, di-
rector of the University's Linguis-
tics Institute, will deliver the third
lecture "Let's Look at the Diction-
ary," on July 5.
A panel discussion, "Grammar
in the Classroom," will be present-
ed on July 11. Members of the pan-
el will talk about the usefulness
for developing skill in: language,.
teaching grammatical structure
and grammar In relation to com-
position.
Another panel on July. 18,
"Grammar for the Teacher of Eng-
lish," will discuss an ideal course
in grammar for the prospective
teacher of high school English, thej
knowledge a teacher must have
and teaching materials.

At the May meeting, held at
Hidden Valley near Gaylord, Mich-

endar change effective with the
start of the 1958-57 school year.

evening of Dec. 22 except, when
that date falls on Saturday in
which case the vacation will start
at noon Saturday. When that date
falls on a Monday, the start of va-
cation will be delayed until the
evening of Tuesday, Dec. 23, so
that a full schedule of Monday and.
Tuesday classes can be held.

iday In effect in recent years will

and Independence Day will be ob-
served as one-day holidays.
