New Teaching
Policies Urged
By Edmonson
Dean Says Education Has
Not Kept In Step With
Social Changes
A discussion of necessary changes
in the field of secondary education,
by Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education, is contained in
the February issue of the School of
Education Bulletin.
In this paper Dean Edmonson at-
tempts to devise a system of educa-
tion which is entirely consistent with
modern economic and social trends.
The first proposal for change calls
for the development of a morework-
able philosophy of education in the
secondary schools, one comprehen-
sible to both pupil and teacher. Dean
Edmonson cites thecontention that
educators fail to agree in regard
to the fundamental philosophy of
American secondary education, some
rigid in their faith in the efficacy of
education for the favored few, others
demanding education for all of ado-
lescent age.
Universal Education Best
Starting with the contention that
universal education is the most prof-
itable course to take, the article dis-
cusses three characteristics that a
course much possess before it can be
considered valuable to the student:
first, it must challenge the interest
and effort of a large number of stu-
dents, second, it must be made profit-
able for students of differing abilities,
and third, it must be valuable from
the stand-point of the newer goals
of education.
Dean Edmonson deplores the fact
that "the vast social and economic
changes in American life have not
brought about comparable changes in
programs of instruction," proposing
that there be brought about a de-
crease in excessive emphasis on scho-
larship marks, and an increase in
the emphasis on those qualities hav-
ing to do with citizenship in a democ-
Outlines Needed Character Elements
According to Dean Edmonson, de-'
mocracy implies certain elements of
character which are not required in
other forms of society, including qual-
ities of self direction, self control,
and self appraisal, the ability to in-
vestigate and to maintain an open-
mind, and finally a distinct pro-social
The article severely criticizes pres-
ent over-emphasis on the economic
values of education, and proposes that
a certain balance of emphasis be
placed on the increased capacity for
enjoyment that comes from education
of the right kind.
Dean Edmonson terms a "progres-
sive tendency' 'the recent action of the
five regional standardizing agencies
in setting up a national committee
to revise the requirements for ac-
crediting secondary schools.
President Asks
For Little River
Flood Policies
Roosevelt Asks Congress
To Define Principles Of
Soil And Flood Control
WASHINGTON, Jan. 30. - (P) -
President Roosevelt recommended to-
day that Congress define principles
for federal-state cooperation in deal-
ing with soil and flood problems or-
ignating in "little rivers."
In transmitting to the Capitol a

report of the national resources com-
mittee entitled "Little Waters: A
study of headwater streams and other
little waters; their use and relations
to the land," Mr. Roosevelt said in a
"The report points out that we
can have no effective national policy
in those matters, nor in the closely
related matter of proper land uses,
until we trace this running water
back to its ultimate sources and find
means of controlling it and using it.
"Our disastrous floods, . . . our ma-
jor problems of erosion . . . originate
in a small way in a multitude of
farms, ranches and pastures. .. we
must have literally a plan which en-
visages the problem as it is presented
in every farm, every pasture, every
wood lot, every acre of the public do-
"The Congress could not formulate,
nor could the executive carry out the
details of such a plan, even though
such a procedure were desirable and
possible under our form of govern-
"We can, however, law down cer-
tain simple principles and devise
means by which the Federal govern-
ment can cooperate in the common
interest with the states and with
such interstate agencies as may be
"It is for Congress to decide upon
the proper means. Our objective
must be so to manage the physical
use of the land that we will not only
maintain soil fertility but will hand
on to the next generation a country

To Trace Makers
Of Indian Relics
A large number of silver ornaments
found in Indian graves throughout
the state are being cleaned and re-
ported on by George I. Quimby, '36,
a student in the department of an-
thropology, in an effort to trace the
makers of the ornaments and to de-
termine the dates and place of their
The ornaments were , traded by
White men to the Indians as early as
1780, and most of them were brought
in before the War of 1812. Many
of them were given to the Indians by
the British, Quimby said, to keep the
Indians on the side of the British.
The ornaments in the collection
include silver broches, crosses (sup-
plied by traders), armbands and gor-
gets. By taking off the patina cover
of copper sulphate, Quimby can find
the "touch-marks" or stamps which
identify the maker. "When the maker
is identified by means of historical
research," he said, "one can tell
where the silver came from and the
approximate site."
By means of this, he said, it may
be possible to date or identify sites
which are mentioned in early historic
literature and to learn the names of
the tribes which occupied those sites.
The ornaments were made chiefly
in England, Scotland, Montreal, Al-
bany and Philadelphia, and were
given to the Indians first by the
French and then by the British and
Americans. About 73 per cent of the
silver in Michigan came from Mon-
treal, Quimby said.
After the War of 1812, the Indians
began adopting the white man's
methods of silversmithing, and made
their own ornaments.
