5. Voters voted their resentments
rather than their appreciations.
Their resentment at the operating of
the spoils system and the land scan-
dals blinded their eyes to the gen-
eral improvement in municipal serv-
ices under the manager plan.
In Lima, Professor Bromage's sur-
vey showed, politician spoilsmen gain
prime positions when the non-par-
tisan group sponsoring the manager
plan "wearied of the struggle," and
astrohg political organization and
the editor of the local newspaper,
who believed in the mayor and coun-
cil form, united to overthrow the
manager charter.
"The first, stumbling block" in Brat-
tieboro, Professor Bromage discovered
was that "appointment of a manager
was put in hands of selectmen not
friendly to the plan, and business
men interested in it could not be per-
suaded to run for office." In addi-
tion to this, he continued, the man-
ager was instrumental in the adop-
tion and enforcement of unpopular,
regulatory ordinances, and he de-
veloped a number of new services
which "were an asset to the town, but
cost money," and the cry of economy
was raised.
In Windsor, according to Professor
Bromage, the manager pilan was
called uneconomical by its enemies,
and its friends did not take the trouble
to support it. The same difficulty
was encountered in St. Albans, he
said, where there was also dissatis-
faction concer'ning real estate ap-
praisals..
Politics, factional disputes and the
false cry of economy, Professor Bro-
mage found, invaded the city man-
ager government in Sulphur, where
the difficulty was "purely local and
not one that involved principles of
good government." The city man-
ager plan came to Fall River when
the Massachusetts textile mill city was
in the throes of an industrial slump
and increased taxation, Professor
Bromage declared. A local politician
was selected as manager, his survey
revealed, and the politicians, caught
napping when the plan was put into
effect, awoke and succeeded in elect-
ing a majority of the councilmen.
A reorganization, he said, came too
late, together with the increasing de-
pression, to save Fall River from prac-
tical bankruptcy, and the forces op-
posed to the city manager plan suc-
ceeded in convincing the voters that
it would not work.

of information. The function of the

teacher is only to aid the pupil in
learning what he or she has a desire
to learn.
In making a change from the tra-
ditional methods of grading students,
a plan for a semi-annual letter in-
dicating the academic condition of
each pupils was decided upon. The
letter is written in purely descriptive
terms and is intended to abolish the
tendency of pigeon-holing, almost in-
herent in the alphabetical system of
grading.
Other Evils Fought
Another of the evils of the present
system of elementary education which
this experiment is attempting to do
away with, is the presence of artificial
sex differences in relation to fields
of interest and achievement. Dur-
ing the brief period of its existence,
the experiment has successfully prov-
en such differences to be naturally
non-existent, and has shown that
they are merely a result of illogical
taboos which the present educational
system has not attempted to abolish.
The emphasis in the field of phys-
ical education is not placed on the
development of health or skill. It is I
intended to develop an interest in
group games of permanent desirabil-
ity, especially those that are ap-
plicable in adulthood, such as swim-
ming, golf, tennis and baseball, No
