Central America's recent revolution saw an entire upheaval of the Panama government which re-
sulted in the forced resignation of President Arosemena by the rebel forces. The insurgents captured the
presidential palace (shown above) after a short but spirited skirmish and the executive head was com-
pelled to step from office in the following reorganization.

16 Years COld.
Improvement in the abilities of
individuals who are given intelli-
gence tests ceases at an early age,
usually about 16 years, Warren R.I
Good, of the education school,
stated yesterday in a radio address
on "Intelligence Tests."
"Repeated measurements have led
to the conclusion that our intelli-
gence tests do not measure much
growth in intelligence beyond the
ages varying from 14 to 18," he said.
This statement should not be
taken to mean, he explained, that
a boy of 16 knows as much as a

man of 50, but it does mean, as far
as we are able to tell, that a boy
learns as rapidly at 16 as he ever
will.
"One common mistake in consid-
ering the results of intelligence,
tests," he said, "is the assumptionI
that a pupil will do what the test
shows he can do. The assumption,
together with an 'entirely uncritical
attitude towards early tests and a
lack of skill in administering them,
led to an unfortunate misuse of
tests in the early years of the move-
ment."
Good strongly advised that schools
have an accurate measure of the
intelligence of each pupil. These
tests, he said, should be adminis-
tered by some one who has been
especially trained for the job. The
individual results should not 'bel
given to the general public, but
every teacher should have adequate
knowledge of the pupils' mental
abilities.
