Nationalistic Teaching Is Called
Remote Possibility In Schools



The possibility of our schools being
forced to teach a program of intense
nationalism such as that which char-
acterizes the schools of Italy, Ger-
many, and Russia is very remote, in
the opinion of Edith L. Hoyle of
University High School. Miss Hoyle
bases her assertion on the fact that
under the present school system, the
elementary and high schools are ab-
solutely free from any federal or state
supervision and even the local boards
of education give the schools a rela-
tively free hand in the points of view
which the teachers take.
The attitude which the teachers
take toward controversial questions in
history is considered a fair barometer
of the extent to which an intense
spirit of nationalism has invaded the
schools. At an open discussion meeting

Because of the rapid increase in the
number of camps operated by govern-
ment, social, and private organiza-
tions, a new course in the problems of
camp leadership will be given for the
first time by the School of Educa-
tion in physical education during the
1934 Summer Session, according to
its annual summer announcement.
The school of education will offer
this year as last year a number of
four-week courses of particular in-
terest to school people who find it
inconvenient to attend the full eight-
week session. The full session will ex=
tend from June 25 to August 17.
In addition to the courses designed
to meet the needs of graduates and
professional teachers the Summer
Session will provide in this school a
number of courses especially given for
undergraduates. A large staff and a
wide variety of courses will be in-
cluded in the 1934 Summer Session
in the School of Education.

of history teachers held during the
sessions of the Michigan Schoolmas-
ters' Club, Miss Hoyle proposed the
presentation of all the known facts
concerning incidents in history,
whether or not -they showed the
United States to be in the right. Prac-
tically all of the teachers present
supported this point of view.
In regard to American policy in for-
eign affairs, it was suggested at the
same meeting that all the facts in
the case, so far as they are known,
should be presented to the students
and that they should then be left
to make up their own minds about the
matter. Although children in the lower
grades are anxious to know the opin-
ion of the teacher in such matters, this
should not be given if the teacher
thinks it will influence the pupils
in their own decision, Miss Hoyle
One of the aims of modern educa-
tion as brought out by M. R. Key-
worth, superintendent of schools in
Hamtramck, at the general session of
the Schoolmasters' Club, is to develop
the ability to use the most effective
and reliable methods in searching
for the truth. In commenting on this
goal, Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education said that, in his
opinion, the best method of teach-
ing controversial subjects is to let
the pupils decide for themselves after
the facts have been presented. "Too
many teachers give their own per-
sonal viewpoint of the matter and do
not even let the pupils discuss it,"
he said.

In commenting on the selection of
this novel, Prof. Erich A. Walter of
the English department, who assist-
ed Prof. Howard M. Jones and Prof.
Louis A. Strauss, said, "the author
tells of her experiences as a student

after the tremendous experience in
the war. Later, after leaving Oxford,
the book tells of her struggles to re-

Professor Walter added that the
book should be of special interest to
University students because of what

Jlampooners Lagh
(By Intercollegiate Press)j
NEW HAVEN, Conn., May 2. - Two
years ago the ibis, sacred stuffed bird
of the Harvard Lampoon, undergrad-
uate humorous magazine, disappeared
from the Lampoon office. Harvard
suspected no one but Yale. Yale was{
profoundly innocent. The ibis still is
Last week Harvard was just as in-
nocent, though greatly pleased over
the mysterious disappearance of
Yale's $1,000 football mascot, Hand-
some Dan II, a thoroughbred English
Suspicion this time pointed to the
Harvard Campus.
So far, about the only clue the
Yale students have is a telegram:
"The bulldog for the ibis." That
looked as though the Lampoon staff
knew something of the affair. The
Lampoon editors denied it.
At the latest writing, Yale was
threatening to sue somebody, or worse.
What "worse" might mean was sug-
gested when editors of the Lampoon
charged that Yale men tried to kid-
nap them and hold them as hostages.
