Night Editor- WALTER WILDS
One foible current in educational
practice comes sharply to the fore
as the new elementary school nears
completion and advance announce-
ment concerning its proposed uses
gain circulation. This latest ad-
junct of the school of education
will be devoted, we are told, to en-
larging the opportunities of the
staff for research work in the ele-
mentary school curriculum and
pre-primary education. But the
apotheosis of clinical work in ped-
agogy has seldom shown such ear-
marks of subverting the primary
Interests of the children thus ex-
posed to experimentation as the
present undertaking.
Great pride is obviously evinced
in the facilities for training of
teachers and supervisors of special
subjects which are offered by the
new several nundred thousand dol-



In these days of huge modern I
baseball grandstands, even larger
football stadiums, and bleachers of .
every sort to accommodate the
throngs who wish to witness ath-
letic contests, an idea has become
prevalent that Americans are be-
coming a race of "fans" and merej
spectators. This notion has been
dissipated by Dr. Julius Klein, of
the Department of Commerce, in
a recent address.
Dr. Klein's figures are most en-
lightening. Although professional
sports overshadow amateur activi-
ties, just as college football ob-
scures other forms of similar ath-
letics, 75 per cent of the student
body engage in athletics. Football,
of course, foots the bill for the
others. The golf, tennis, baseball,
handball, basketball players, and
the swimmers, ifencers, hunters,I
and fishermen far outnumber the'
spectators who are severally count-
ed many times in the total attend-
ance for a season of professional i
Golf, predominately an amateur)
sport, numbers 500,000 devoteesj
who play on 5,000 courses with a
total area of 250,000 acres which
cost $750,000,000 and are maintain-
ed at an average annual expense of
$21,000. They give employment toI
15,000 people the year round, be-I
sides seasonal attendants.
Public parks and recreation cen-1
ters in 2,000 cities provide 7,000
groups of tennis courts, 4,000 base-
ball diamonds, and 1,000 swimming
pools. Municipal leagues embrace1
700,000 players.
On the business side, sports arej
not to be sneered at. The manu-
factured output runs to $175,000,-
000 with a payroll of 33,000 em-
ployees. The retail trade employs
10,000 people at salaries aggrega-
ting $20,000,000 a year, while theI
turnover is $250,000,000.
These statistics would seem to
indicate that there is still plenty
of red blood in the veins of the
American people and that they likej
to get out under the sun and do
'things themselves. Some may pre-
fer the peculiarly sedentary pur-
suits, but by far the largest major-
ity would rather perspire on the
athletic. fields than see someone;
else doing it. }

noone can tell-if the letter is
written on Old Hampshire station-
ery-for it gives an almost presi-
dential dignity to the message it
carries. Whether your letter is to
the family at home, to some ofyour
tradesmen or purveyors- or to
your very best girl, Old Hampshire
adds a distinct tone, for it is rich,
substantial, smart-it has the rich
texture, the crisp crackle of the
truly aristocratic paper.
