Make Plans To Add U1it For Study Of
Pre-School Chl4 To Curriculum
Of Educational School
A year from next September, the
University of Michigan will have a
complete psychological laboratory for
studying school pupils from the ages
of two years up through the college
grades, if the new elementary unit of
the University High school is com-
pleted by that time, according to Dean
Allan S. Whitney of the School of Edu-
cation who returned from a trip
to severalhmid-western universitieston
Thursday. He was accompanied by
Prof. Clifford Woody of the Education-
Dean Whitney and Professor Woody
made the trip to collect available data
at the Universities of Northwestern,
Chicago, and Iowa, concerning the pre-
school child and the work in the study
and training of them.,
Dean Whitney thought that the
school for this type of child was best
at Iowa University. Only in the past
few years have educationalists been
turning their attention to the pre-
school child to teach him independ-
ence and care of himself before the
kindergarten age. Psychologists are
now realizing the importance of this
study and are now starting work in
this little-known field. For this pur-
pose, many of the best universities
in this country and elsewhere are tak-
ing up the study to follow up growth
of intellect and other reactions in the
small child, to manhood.
The University of Iowa is a pioneer
in the field, having had means for
studying the pre-school child for sev-
en years. The children from two to
six years of age fall in this class.
Each year, the State of Iowa makes an
appropriation of $35,000 for this study
by the University. There are three
classes: the first for children from
two to four who come and stay most
of the day, eating their noon meal,
sleeping in the afternoon, and learn-
ing to takecare of themselves and
some simple exercises.
Group Division Made
The second group comes in the
morning and retur'ns home at noon.
The third group is of children, four
to five, who learn elementary things
in preparation for kindergarten. .Each
of these groups is housed in spearate
cottages, and in addition there is a
small library building and an office
for the teachers and nurses Parental
groups meet with the authorities in
charge every so often and plan diets
and proper care of their children so
that the co-operation may be better.
At Northwestern and Chicago, there
are no separate cottages, but the whole
plan is on one floor. The same general
idea of care of the children and pa-
rental co-operation is carried out,

The Electric Air Heater does not
take the place of the furnace. It
supplements it. An electric heater
is simply a quick, convenient, and
inexpensive means of heating a
cold room when you want it
warmed, and for as long or short
a time as you may desire.
Even in full furnace, season it will
often be found desirable to have
it at hand, especially in the bath-
