By MICHAEL JULIAR
John Hershey has a romantiz
view of the individual (especially
the gifted child) and fe's that
a person is not a natural resource
of his country, three panelists
agreed yesterday at a discussioa of
Hershey's book, "The Child Buyer."
Victor Kobayashi, Grad, pointed
out that Hershey felt that the
search for gifted children was
brought on by negative reasons,
such as for the personal gain of
industry instead of the child's
own self-advancement. Hershey

also criticized the methods used
to find gifted children.
He felt that intelligence tests
and other so-called measures. of
aptitude do not measure the child's
drive, as shown by the fruitless
results of IQ tests applied to
Barry Rudd, the gifted child of the
book, Kobayashi added. ,
Future Education
Another member of the panel,
John Lipkin, Grad, said that "The
Child Buyer," the story of an
industrial tycoon's fight to buy
Barry for his own personal gains,

announces

points out the problems of edu-
cation in an age of science that
exists in this story set in the
world 20 years in the future.
First, he said, there are the
problems that exist even today:
the roles and composition of to-
day's educators, teachers and
guidance councellors are deplor-
able because of the general in-
competency of many of these
people.
The problems of this age of
science in the future consist of
the constant of this future edu-
cational system, Lipkin added.
There is a great emphasis on
science to the exclusion of other
subjects. And the method of teach-
ing science and evaluating the
students are entirely based on IQ
and other aptitude tests.
Character Stereotyped
The third member of the panel,
Christian Anderson, Grad, said
that Hershey has made stereo-
types of all the charcters in the
book except for the child buyer,
Wissey Jones.
He is the "master teacher," in-
fluencing everyone that has a right
to prevent him from buying Barry
to reconsider and to allow the sale
to go through. Jones sells every-

one on the idea of selling the
child to him.
Kobayashi added that finally,
Mr. Jones, the child buyer, even
got Barry to permit himself to be
sold because the boy had lost his
faith in humanity.
Prof. Claude Eggerstsen of the
education school moderated the
panel discussion that was spon-
sored by the education school.
'U Passes Goal
In United Fund
The University has surpassed its
goal in the 1962 United Fund
campaign, campus UF chairman
Prof. Shorey Peterson, of the
economics department, announced
yesterday.
The goal of $107,943 was ex-
ceeded by $821.
