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

their schools, arc

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

Education With Fulbright...
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

‘Peaceful Man’ to Survive...
A new kind of “peaceful man” must evolve
in order to survive the atomic age. 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. .

world In tho last two or three years make
