on the quality of his films.
Explaining the program of the Le-
gion of Decency, he told of the strug-
gles of the Catholic bishops with
the movie producers. Then he des-
scribed their program of getting
pledges not to attend motion pictures
which "offend decency.''
The protestant organization in De-
troit adopted the same program, he
said, "only we also attacked indecent,
stage shows.
Stating that the theatre manager
could not help himself under the
"block system," Dr. McAfee advised
that documents and magazines ex-
plaining the types of movies be pub'-
lished in order to "fairly discrimin-
ate against indecent films."
In the evening session, held at the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre Dr. Bow-
man described the fundamental
changes that have come about in
recent years in the relationship of
the home to the community.
To meet these new developments
Dr. Bowman expressed the need for
parents to work out their problems
of child guidance in an integrated
way with the community in which
they live.

Bowman on "The Home As the Chief

the subject of "Why Study a Foreign
Language." He quoted Saint Paul's
listing of the spiritual gifts of which
men are proud as including "divers
kinds of tongues," noting that in
many portions of the world the study
of languages is taken as a matter of
course, and hence demanding no sub-
stantiating arguments.
Derides Arguments
Deriding the two arguments of the
people who oppose this study in the
United States, he answered the first,
that Americans have no native ability
for foreign languages, by stating his
own experiences which have con-
vinced him that American students
may learn even more in the same
space of time than do those of some
European countries famed along this
line.
The second argument, that results
of high school courses are not gen-
erally satisfactory, he admitted, but
