NEW YORK — A Hebrew day
school in Columbus had an enroll-
ment drop of 10 per cent for the
new school year, and yet the
school's principal, Irving Fried,
is not crying the "dropout" blues.
According to Torah Umesorah,
the National Society for Hebrew
Day Schools, the "dropout" stu-
dents either have gone with their
families on allya at the beginning
of the new school year or are
continuing their, high school edu-
cation in Hebrew day schools in
larger metropolitan centers.
I consider poetry very subordin-
ate to moral and political science.
