Prof W. L. MOORE from McDonald PA Outlook newspaper Jan. 19, 1918:
Prof. W. L. MOORE Candidate for Office of Co. Supt. of Schools
Prof. W. L. MOORE, who has had charge of the schools of Cecil
Township for the last eight years, is a candidate for the office of Counter
Superintendent of Schools of Washington county. Prof. MOORE is eminently
fitted for the position as he is a school man through and through, being a
graduate of Washington and Jefferson college, and having taught in the
county schools, filling the position of teacher; also principal and teacher
in high school and principal in the graded schools of our county. He is a
native of the Northern end of the county and is well and favorably known
among the educators of all sections of this and adjoining counties.
Mr. MOORE was born in Hanover township, September 26th, 1873,
and lived in that township, where he taught school until he entered
Washington and Jefferson college. He graduated from this college in 1899
and has since followed the profession of teaching.
Through his untiring efforts the schools of Cecil Township have
been graded and are well organized and an up-to-date course of study
prepared and put into successful operation. The Cecil Township schools were
the first in the county to adopt a system of giving credits for useful work
done at home. The relative value of common school subjects has been studied
and the amount of time that should be given each subject has been
determined. In this way useless material in the text books has been
eliminated as has that which is beyond the understanding of the pupils.
Thus, more time has been found for studying the important subjects of
reading, writing, spelling and arithmetic.
More than one hundred students in Cecil Township are attending
night schools, which are conducted there, at this time, due in large measure
to Prof. MOORE. Cecil Township has schools that the citizens of the
township take pride in and schools that are producing results.
Prof. MOORE's work in the schools of Cecil Township proves his
executive ability, tact and sympathy--a born teacher. The teachers under
him are his friends; the school children like him because they know he is
their friend. No school district in Washington county, under the County
Superintendent's jurisdiction pays a larger salary is paid to Prof. MOORE,
which shows how his board of directors appreciate his work in the district.
Although a busy man, Prof. MOORE finds time to help his country
in its time of need, in devoting his energies toward Red Cross work, he
having helped to organize many of the Red Cross Auxiliaries in different
parts of the country. Being a good speaker, it has been his lot to explain
the workings of the Red Cross in many communities. Many times after his
day's work was done, has he had to travel most of the night to and from
these meetings. At the present time, he is chairman of the Civilian Relief
of Washington county. A Christian gentleman who knows school work from
first grade to the close of High school; one of whom the friends of
education in Washington county, will be proud if he is elected
Superintendent of the Schools of the county.
