By the committee on Normal School:

The committee on Normal School beg leave to report that they have visited the Normal School at Ypsilanti and devoted much time and atten. tion to a careful examination of the management and conduct of the institution and its needs and requirements for the future.

We believe the citizens of the State have reason to feel proud of the Ypsilanti Normal, and the splendid work that is being accomplished by it for the educational interests of the State through its able professors and other teachers, under the wise guidance of the very efficient State Board of Education.

The system of education and courses of study adopted are fully equal to those of any similar institution of which your committee has knowledge. The Ypsilanti Normal ranks among the very first of similar insti. tutions of the country.

Prof. R. G. Boone, an educator of high repute, is the acting superintendent of the institution, and has the aid of a corps of able teachers, who have been selected with care from among the best educators of this and other states.

The students attending this institution fully appreciate the value of an education and its influences upon character, and a large majority of them are seeking through their own individual efforts to prepare themselves for their chosen calling, that of teaching in the schools of the State. As a result they need no urging, but push forward with commendable zeal toward the goal of their several ambitions.

The new training school will, when ready for occupancy, somewhat relieve the heretofore crowded condition of some of the departments, but more room is greatly needed at this time for additional library facilities, and also to relieve the over-crowded condition of the reading-room.

The gymnasium attached to the Normal School is a source of great benefit to the students, and its effects upon them are plainly manifest to the visitor. Instead of the sallow complexions and feeble physiques so unfortunately common to students of most educational institutions, the students at the State Normal are bright-eyed, rosy-cheeked, and every one the picture of health, which fact is illustrative of the benefits derived from the gymnasium.

The general appropriation asked for by the institution is, in the judg. ment of your committee, both necessary and conservative. The special appropriation desired for a heating plant, additional library facilities and fire protection are, in the judgment of your committee, absolutely necessary, and will not only greatly add to the convenience of the insti. tution, but will prove sources of economy to the State.

During the year of 1896 the State Normal paid to private companies for lighting the sum of $665, and the lighting of the new buildings now ready for occupancy will add considerably to that amount another year. An appropriation of $2,500 is asked for the purchase of dynamos sufficient to light all the buildings of the institution. Such can be furnished with power from the boilers now in use for other purposes, and will require no expenditures for labor in operating, as the engineer now in charge of the boilers can also attend to the operating of the lighting plant. Your committee believe, therefore, that the appropriation must necessarily result in economy to the State.
