Johnston Shows Junior High
School System To Be Effective

To Participate In
Darwin Expedition
The University has been invited to
participate in a Darwin Memorial
Expedition, which will sail from San
Francisco Dec. 15 on the "Golden
State," according to Prof. H. H. Bart-
lett, head of the botany department.
One of the objects of the expedi-
tion is to erect a memorial to Charles
Darwin on Chatham Island in the
Galapagos group, on as nearly as
possible the 100th anniversary of
Darwin's visit there in 1835. It is
there that he observed many of the
phenomena which led to the later
publication of his epoch-making
"Origin of Species." The memorial
was designed by Sergeant Child of
Amherst, Mass.
Another purpose of the expedition
is to collect zoological and botanical
material and to make studies in
archaology.
Alumni who will participate, with
the title of Research Fellow in the
Botanical Garden, are Dr. W. A.
Archer and Carl O. Grassl. Mr.
Grassl is in charge of communica-
tions with Dr. Von Hagen.
The expedition expects to be en
route for two and a half years, dur-
ing which time work will be done
in several parts of Central and South
America.
"Wewish it understood," Professor
Bartlett said, "that the University
is in no way sponsoring the expedi-
tion, which is being organized by Dr.
Von Hagen on the Pacific Coast, but
is merely co-operating in the botani-
cal program."
Prominent Alumnus Dies
After Illness Of One Year'

Play Here In 19251
Judge Charles W. Ferguson, '15L,,
may not be Michigan's most enthu-
siastic rooter, but he's a close second
to whoever is.
Reminiscing last night, Judge Fer-
guson, who now lives in West Vir-
ginia, told how he managed to get
to the Michigan-Minnesota game in
1925. He had made arrangements to
come by midnight train on Friday.
Something, he forgets now what,
happened to interfere with his plan
and he arrived at the station at 12:05
a. in., Saturday. His train had started
already.
Taking 10 seconds time out to be-
rate both himself and the train,
Judge Ferguson made up his mind
that he was going to see that game.
He hailed the nearest taxi, jumped in,
and ordered the astounded cabbie to
drive to Ann Arbor. Thirteen hours
later, one hour before game time,
cabbie and passenger arrived in Ann
Arbor, with the former firmly be-
lieving that although college students
may pull foolish tricks the alumni
can go them one better.

Decrease in the number of pupils,
dropping out of school and decrease1
in total number of failures were cited
Sunday by Dr. Edgar Johnston, prin-
cipal of University High School, as
instances of the effectiveness of the
junior high school system.
Speaking on the radio parent hour
on "The Junior High School at
Work," Dr. Johnston described the
functioning of the system as he has
observed it in Michigan cities. His
talk was the second in a series on
reconstruction at the junior high
school level.
He lauded the guidance work done
in the home room and termed the
teacher in charge a "school parent."
The school has a responsibility for

Are Asked To
Attend Meeting
An invitation extended by Gov. A.
G. Schmedeman of Wisconsin to
Dean S. T. Dana and Prof. Willet F.
Ramsdell of the School of Forestry
and Conservation to attend the Tri-
State Conference for a discussion of
lake-state forestry problems has been
announced by Dean Dana.
The conference, which will include
leaders in forestry practice and the-
ory from Michigan, Wisconsin, and
Minnesota, is to be held Dec. 1 and
2 in Milwaukee.
Dean Dana will discuss "Public and
Private Responsibility For Sustained
Production of Forest Products" and
Professor Ramsdell will address the
meeting on "A Practical Forest Tax
Plan."
Beside the two members of the
University faculty the invitation in-
cluded Gov. William A. Comstock,
Col. George Hogarth, director of the
Conservation Department, William
Loutit, chairman of the Conservation
Commission, Prof. P. A. Herbert, of
the Michigan State College School
of Forestry, and S. G. Fontanna, of
the Conservation Department.

such guidance because of thd recog-
nition of individual differences, he
said.
"For every one of its pupils, no
matter what his individual tastes
and abilities, the school must provide
an educational experience which will
help him to live more successfully
and contribute more effectively to
the life of the community," he said.
"The junior high; schools are 'try-
out institutions' where each pupil
may find his place and satisfaction
and happiness. In addition to pro-
viding a thorough foundation for
advanced scholarship, it must offer
a program for the many pupils who
will not complete senior high school
and the majority who will ilot attend
college."
Dr. Johnston also commented on
the realistic tendency he had noticed
to bring the school into contact with
life outside the school. He listed in-
dustrial trips and excursions to
points of interest as effective means
being used to accomplish this con-
tact.
With the prospect of more leisure
before us it is important for the
school to develop a constructive in-
terest, he said. He criticized most
of our recreation as being passive.
"It seems possible that attitudes of
co-operation and responsibility are
more important in a citizen even
than knowledge about social organi-
zation, and so some junior high
schools have emphasized opportuni-
ties for pupils to share responsibility
for the administration of the school,"
he said.
