Excerpt from Landscape Gardening as Applied to School Grounds, Vol. 2

A vision is essential lo intelligent progress in large undertakings and that vision must be complete and must embrace all phases of the development of the project. The increased interest in our country schools and a keener appreciation of the possibilities of country life make possible advancement in many avenues formerly closed. As we become aware of our opportunities and possibilities in the State of Nebraska we shall exert ourselves more systematically to bring things to pass. Next to the home the school should be the most important place in the community. This has not been taken into serious consideration in most instances.

The schools of our state are like unto two sisters of one household; the one beautiful, the other plain and even homely; the one arrayed in fine linen, the other clad in the coarse garments of menial toil; the one stationed in the parlor amid paintings, statuary, literature and music, the other delegated to the rear of the house among pots and pans; the one presented to all the gay comers, the other shunned as of small consequence. Go where you will about the state and in our towns and cities you will see, crowning the hilltop, splendid edifices, marble palaces pointed out with extravagant pride; while out in the country the little old schoolhouse, cheaply built, with battered sides, stands hidden in the vale or bleak on the hilltop, with no vestige of verdure but sunflowers and ragweeds - and yet the most of our children are in the country and the mainstay of our democracy receives its preparation in this little institution.

Realizing the possibilities the country affords for contented, prosperous and useful life, and the needs of some systematic effort to "brighten the corner where we are," the Department, has asked Professor Nicolet, the landscape architect of the University of Nebraska, to prepare the material which this bulletin contains hoping to stimulate greater activity in beautifying our schools.
