  3) Study of county maPs. If a map of the county or counties in
which alumni are at work is hung in every training school, with
tht schools in which graduates are teaching,, starred, it will be a
help in assigning senior students as assistants to alumni as sug-
gested elsewhere in this pamphlet. As each student becomes identi-
fiedi with the problems confronting the particular teacher whom she
is helping, it will not be difficult to compare records of assistance
given by different students and so to stimulate a wholesome rivalry.
  (J) Study of country achoolhouae8. The map mentioned above may
well have a companion map giving locations of standard school-
houses (See Manual, page 328) and of school buildings which fail
to illustrate either scientific construction or convenient arrange-
ment; which do not have sanitary appointments and are difficult to
keep warm or presentable.
  if in every county information in regard to school grounds, school build-
hiis. equipment and decoration of school buildings, were accessible In a
summarized form for the whole county, it would help all who are interested
in getting conditions bettered. to accomplish their ends. Much of this In.
f. mation is called for on the blanks used by supervising teachers. A be.
ginning has been made in a few counties toward tabulating these statistics.
When a number of counties get this material in form so that it can be con-
sitled, and one year's progress compaher with that of another year, and
wrdittons in one county compared with conditions on other counties, a
gieat Incentive will be furnished for the equipment and Improvement of
E mrntry school buildings.
  Below is given a suggestive alphabetical outline, which first ap-
peared In the Educational News Bulletin*, April, 1917, for use in
surveying schoolhouse and yard equipment. Supervising teachers
using such a list check off for each article of equipment which is to
be found, getting finally an equipment survey of the schools they
visit. This list doubtless includes items which will be considered
unnecessary in some counties; in other counties, the list may be
considered incomplete.
