1800 Educators Attending
Conference Hear Plea
To 'Learn By Doing'
Haber Speaks On,
Perils Of Planning
School children cannot learn de-
mocracy under the present autocra-
tic school system, Dr. William H. Kil-
patrick of Northwestern University
told 1800 representatives of the Pro-
gressive Education Association gath-
ered in Hill Auditorium yesterday
afternoon, in supporting his theory,
that learning is only accomplished by
doing.
You cannot learn vicariously, Dr.
Kilpatrick said, but you can and do
learn by living and doing. If you want
to improve social conditions, then you
must start with the children and in-
grain in them the fundamental con-
cepts of an ideal community by
making it possible for them to live
in a miniature ideal community the
school.
"School people," Dr. Kilpatrick
said, "are in danger of confining the
fact and notion of learning to the
acquisition of book content and of
allied skills. In so doing they over-
look several very important kinds of
learning that in the strategy of life'
must be ranked before this ordinary
subject matter of the conventional
school.
"Probably the most important of
all learning is that which enters into
the building of the infant into a self,
since it is this selfhood which most
differentiates man from the beast.
The personal and social attitudes
built up in the child during this pro-1
cess determine perhaps more fully1
than anything else his moral and,
personality traits of later life.-
"In close connection wiuh the fore-
going are all those learnirgs that fit
the child into the surounding on-
going social life process, the common1
language, the use of ordinary toolsl
and implements of social life, the1
common customs, the social and4
moral standards and conceptions. 4
"As the child becomes adolescent
and grows into adulthood he has to
learn to deal with the wider social
and economic life and accept his
share of responsibility for the current
social problems that emerge from
the life of business and society in his
time and place.
"And finally is that kind of learn-
ing which helps to build new social
intelligence for dealing with all those
especially strategic new problems,
which if unsolved threaten the veryt
stability of civilization itself.
"In all of these kinds .of learning
social participation stands foremost

MondayAtLeague
Humanism, a creed of thought and
action which holds that man is the
'most important interest of man, will
be discussed by A. Eustace Haydon,
professor of the history of religion at
the University of Chicago, in a series
of lectures tomorrow and Monday.
"Man's Search for the Good Life"
is the title of the lecture which Pro-
fessor Haydon will deliver at 11 a.m.
tomorrow in the Unitarian Church.
On Monday, Professor Haydon will
speak at the faculty luncheon at
12:15 a.m. on "Humanism" and at
4:15 p.m. will address students, in
the League, on "The Task of Religion
Today."
Professor Haydon, considered one
of the foremost exponents of Human-
ism, has written two books - "The
'Quest of The Ages" and "Man's
Search for The Good Life"-in which
he explains the basis for a religion
such as Humanism and its principles.
Humanism, as set forth in the Hu-,
manist Manifesto-a re-affirmation'
of the ideas embodied in Professor
Haydon's books, is a religion that at-
tempts to square with the scientific,
economic, and social changes which

have rendered traditional religious
faiths inadequate to the needs of
man.
The Humanist Manifesto states:
"Religion consists of those actions,
purposes, and experiences which are
humanly significant. Nothing human
is alien to the religious. It includes
labor, art, science, philosophy, love,
friendship, re'creational, all that is in
its degree expressie of intelligentlyl
satisfying human living. The dis-
tinction between the sacred and the
secular can no longer be maintained."
Humanism affirms rather than
denys life, seeks to enjoy rather than
flee from it, and endeavors to estab-
lish a satisfactory life for. all, ac-
cording to the adherents of the tenets]
of this comparatively new religion.
Budget Decision
Hits President's
Whole Program
Congressmen Find Budget
Balancing Cuts Across
Crop Control And TVAI
WASHINGTON, Nov. 12-(IP)-
Early arrivals for the special session
of Congress found today that the
issue of curtailed expenditures and
balancing the budget cut squarely
across most of the measures to be
considered.
It was present in the problem of
determining the best method of keep-
ing crop surpluses within bounds, in
the question of government reor-
ganization, in proposals that the TVA
idea be extended to other areas, andI
was inherent in the current revision
of the tax structure.
Some saw it lurking also in the
Wage-Hour Bill, still tightly trapped
in the House Rules Committee, for,:
they said, administrative expenses
would be involved. None had yet
found it lurking behind a proposal
that the Anti-Trust laws be tightened.I
The special session begins at 12
noon Monday.
In two committee rooms little'
groups of men were already deep in
the problems of the session. The
House Agriculture Committee fought
out the crop control controversy and
the House Subcommittee on Taxes
was busy at its unending task of de-
termining how various changes inj
the tax schedules would affect re-
venues.
The Agriculture Committee de-
voted most of the day to a contro-
versy as to whether the farm program
should be financed by a revival of
processing taxes similar to those in-
validated by the Supreme Court in

Sign Tentative Agreement'
Amending Last Year's ,
DETROIT, Nov. 12. - (A) - The
United Automobile Workers of Amer-1
ica announced tonight that it and.
General Motors Corp. have reached
"a tentative agreement" on amend-
ments to their agreement, signed
after last winter's prolonged strike.
The points agreed upon were not'
revealed. Homer Martin, UAWA!
president, said they will be submitted
to a conference of delegates from all
General Motors locals tomorrow and
Sunday for approval or rejection,
The union head also announced
that delegates from 20 plants of the
Ford Motor Co. will meet here at the;
same time to consider formation of a
council similar to that established
before the General Motors strike.
Martin said the union has enough
members in Ford plants "to do bus- A

cific figure but added that the UAWA;

The Chinese, unable to withstand
the terrific pounding of Japan's mod-
