Abstract/Notes: "Montessori, Educator, Is Due Tomorrow. The most talked-of educator in the world arrives in Los Angeles tomorrow preparatory to a month's stay. Her purpose in coming is to demonstrate her method of teaching in three classes which have already been founded and modeled after her "House of Childhood" in Rome. She is the unique Dr. Maria Montessori, whose novel methods of educating children have aroused the intense interest of the whole speaking world. REFUSES OTHER INVITATIONS. Disregarding the urgent invitations of New York, Washington and other large cities of the United States, Dr. Montessori has picked Los Angeles as her first demonstration place. She comes here at the invitation of the board of education, the normal school, the U.S.C., Cabrillo chapter, D.A.R., and many local societies. Scores of educators will gather here in order to have the opportunity to see her work. Dr. Montessori has been invited to stay at the Maryland, Pasadena, and she will make that her headquarters. Her first public appearance, according to tentative plans today, will be made at a May Day fete to be held next Friday at St. Catherine's school, W. Adams st., in behalf of Belgian refugees. THREE CLASSES HERE. One of the two local classes conducted on the Montessori system is at St. Catherine's. The other is in the E. Seventh st. school. Both were started and are taught by Miss Katherine Moore, who was graduated in Dr. Montessori's first training class. A third is held at the Maryland. Miss Moore went to San Francisco to meet Dr. Montessori and to accompany her here. The foundation of the brilliant European woman's novel system of teaching is what she calls auto-education. Instead of forcing children to follow a set curriculum, she permits them to exercise their own initiative, picking out that subject in which they take a natural interest. Up to the present time her chief work has been with children from the age of 2 1/2 to 6 years. She things the soul of a child awakes on its seventh day and that that is the time to begin the study of it and the training of it. Her theory is, however, that too much is done for a child; that instead he should be allowed to teach himself in a larger measure. If a child has proper clothes, good air, and good food and proper surroundings which constitute child happiness for the most part, he will neither fret nor cry, she avers. Dr. Montessori will spend the month of May in and around Los Angeles. Then she will go to San Diego, and later to San Francisco."
