MARLIN GETS SUMMER NORMAL

The Falls County Teachers' In-
stitute Decides Saturday.

Faculty is Also Chosen.

       The Falls county Teachers Institute in session Saturday last selected Marlin as the place for holding the summer normal.
       The normal will begin on June 26 and last until July 31.
       Prof. C. P. Hudson of Marlin, was chosen conductor, and W. A. Holland of McClanahan, and W. E. Whitesides, of Mooreville, were chosen as the other members of the faculty.
       An effort will be made to induce teachers from other counties to attend this normal and it is the idea to make the normal a permanent institution.
       A feature of the Institute was the presence of Hon. Arthur Lefevre of Austin, who is state superintendent of public instruction.  Mr. Lefevre addressed the Institute on the subject "Needed reforms in the state school laws."  The lecture was very interesting.
       The other numbers on the program, previously published, were filled with a few exceptions.
