Following the regular routine of the Sunday School program with little plan for improvement is the mistake often made in the Sunday School. Almost no time or effort is taken to evaluate the present procedures. The writer desired to see the Sunday Schools of the Oregon Yearly Meeting receive proper supervision that they might operate as efficiently as possible.
The yalue of supervision was illustrated by Vieth when he stated:
Factories and commercial concerns recognize that at best they will run below one hundred percent efficiency. A corps of workers is employed to supervise what others are doing. These... do not assist in actually doing the work of the organization. They are employed to help to make the work of others more efficient. Their work has been well done when there is a maximum out put at a minimum cost. If it is true that a factory needs supervision in order to run at highest efficiency, how much more true it is of an educational institution.
