y r' * ' Battalion 4 EDITORIA Pag® 2 TUESDAY, JULY 8, 1947 Three-Community’ Living... Now l am oim of thouaamU of who have returned to achool to continue their education. Although my interest in edu cation has come only recently I have form ed some tentative ideas concerning what education can do for the young people of our country. To me the schools, originally created bv the community to fill a community need, exist primarily to provide citisens who will fit into community life with as little friction as possible. It is becoming increasingly dear that everyInxly lives in three types of com munity simultaneously. The first is the home community, the locality where one lives and works. The bulk of the young people tfllnding secondary schools will engage in such diverse occupa tions as street car conductors, factory work ers, bakers, salesgirls, wives, and mothers I would favor offering in our high schools subjects designed to do the greatest common good for the greatest possible number, since ft is patently impossible to prepare each per son for the Specific position he or she even tually will find. By such subjects I mean broad survey courses acquainting 1 the pupil with the un derlying principles of many vocations; simi lar survey courses designed to enrich the student’s future life by giving him or her an idea as to what is worthwhile in movies, radio, books, music, and art; subjects em phasising social relationships tai ~ ‘ manner that would stress getting all desses, colors, and creeds; and classes to help young people with their so cial and vocational problems. Secondly, there is the community of our nation as a whole. My ideal teacher would try to interest his pupils in social and eco nomic problems that are natonally impor tant Since we are a democracy, be should impress upon them that a conscientious and thinking electorate, capable and interested J in choosing wise leaders, is essential to a healthy democratic form the recent war we have indoctrinated in c their schools, arc nothing wrong with the principles of the young people of our haa to be learned and f government In sen what people, eiiefs largely by of doing. T eee indoctrination in for . Democracy such teaching, government of the people, by the people, and for the people,” wfl pariah from the earth, deetroyed either by some outside pow er or from within by a email militant group taking advantage of the apathy of the gen- eralpublic. Finally, there is the world community. We are still s long way from the concept of the whole world living as one eommunl- ty. Nicholas Murray Butler Is quoted in an article on world federation as saying; “If I were s young man I would not go into edu cation. I would devote any lift to the real isation of world federation." Perhaps it la brash of me to disagree with so distinguished a man but I think the concept of world federation will come only through education. The citisens of the Unit ed Statee, the peasant walking along the linden-lined roads of Prance, the Soviet member in Russia, and the coolie s in China are .only hours apart cally. but they are centuries apart in way of thinking. My ideal teacher, in addi tion to his other duties, would do his best to decrease this mental distance by a few seconds. He would be old enough to realise that the world and human nature change very slowly but young enough to maintain some zeal in trying to change it With the cooperation of men like him in this country and other countries, with men in this generation sad succeeding gen erations. there may some day come a time when Americans. Englishmen. Germans, Russians, and all the other national it 1m consider themselves as members of the same community. Ij -^Occupations Poultry Judging Clauses to Begin Th.

On August 1, 1946, the President of the United States signed a measure which will do more towards promoting international un derstanding than all the peace conferences and interracial groups could ever hope to accomplish. Senate Bill 1636, or the Ful- bright Bill, as It Is called after Its author, provides the means whereby thousands of American students and teachers may study and teach abroad.* In many countries throughout the world the United Statee Army and Navy left mil lions of dollars worth of surplus war goods. Because of the unfavorable glance of trade eyisting at the present time, and from all indications will continue to exist, It Is im- possible for thee# countries within whoss boundariss the surplus materials were dump ed to pay the Unfted States (n cash. The Fulbright Bill is designed to allow payment In klM. Education is to be the medium of Within a period of 20 year* over 9800,- 000,000 will be applied to educational ex change. No country will be allowed to spend more than $1,000,000 each year. The money will be spent In four ways: 1. To pay the bills of American stu dents in klner education abroad.

If man goes on aa he is, he will be wiped out as com pletely as extinct animals were by the Ice Ages. He must learn not to get into war. This warning was given psychiatrists by Dr. Brock Chisholm, executive secretary of the World Health Organization Interim Com mission. Psychiatrists must get together with the scientists to draw up the blueprints for this new kind of man, he told the Amer ican Psychiatric Association. 'The desperate need of the human race at this moat precarious stage of its develop ment is for understanding of man and for tho development of methods by which he can learn to live in peace with his kind,” Dr. Chisholm dociared. .
