"No horse gets anywhere until he is harnassed. No steam or gas
ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned
into light and power until it is tunnelled. No life ever grows great
until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined." This writing by Harry
Emerson Fosdick captures the essence of education. During the
week of March 1 through March 5, the Twenty-fifth Annual Ob-
servance of Public Schools Week will be held. During this week
millions of Texans will visit their public schools and see them in
operation. We, as citizens must be informed concerning the needs
of our schools. The first step in developing an awareness is a
visitation to a local school.
