"The success of the club is of course more dependent upon the director than upon any other one factor. The director should take no active part during the meeting, except when it is necessary to carry the boys over what is to them an insurmountable difficulty-his frame of mind should be that of a man behind the scenes, who having set the stage stands by watching the performance, ever-ready to step into a situation and set things right. The ability to do this properly comes with practice. It does not demand exceptional ability or personality - Next to efficient leadership, the successful club depends upon its program. In a sense, a well organized program can make up for inexperience or poor leadership." -Dr. Morris Meister in "The Educational Value of Certain After-School Materials and Activities in Science"
