Centered on the theme, Living
with the Child in the School Room,"
noted specialists will present recent
trends. in pre-school and elementary
education. Dr. Morris Mitchell of
State 'Teachers' College, Florence,
Ala.,will speak on "Living with Chil-
dren" at the opening session at 10
a.m. following registration. Con-
nected with federal community edu-
cational programs, she will analyze
factors of her work especially in re-
settlement projects in the South.
At Angell, Perry, and the Univer-
sity Elementary Schools the visitors
will also inspect exhibits of the work
of elementary students. In the foyer
of the Rackham Building will be the
display of children's books arranged
by Miss Edith Thomas of the Uni-
versity Extension Service. Paintings
done by children will be displayed al-
so by Miss Frieda Pepper of the Chil-
dren's Art Center of Detroit and from
the exhibit of art work from all over
the United States loaned by Brinney
and Smith.
University movies showing elemen-
tary schools in action and educational
films for use in the classroom will
also be exhibited at the morning ses-

Conceived in the "delux era of two
cars and banish poverty," the initial
meetings were devoted solely to dis-
cussion on religious beliefs and phil-
osophical theory, Dr. Blakeman rem-
inisced. Recent parleys have, he
pointed out, dealt with topics on aca-
demic freedom, unemployment, bear-
ing of physical limitations on our
faith and morals and the relation of
security to liberty. This year the
slogan of the Parley is "Democracy
Through the Students' Ayes."
One Problem ,
One of the major problems encoun-
tered in sponsoring the Parley, Dr.
Blakeman said, is how to get the
student to attend-how to awaken
the docile student who arrives at the
University as an automaton, sent by
his parents, obeying family custom,
to get sufficiently interested in the
world around them so that he will
want to delve into and grapple with
such issues as: vanishing democracy
in America, institutionalism, hard-
ening about some of our major func-
tions, education, religion and aes-
It is very gratifying, he comment-
ed, to note the gradual and sometimes
spasmodic increase in attendance.

The Man in the Slot


Journalism in the U. S. A. pours out millions of
INETEEN MINUTES before a-big city newspaper's words each week; TIME'S limit is some thirty thou-

story starts coming across the city editor's desk. All this has used up fifteen seconds. dozen, it needs to be a better word, and more eco-

The city editor reaches for his phone, calls the
make-up editor in the composing room. "How we
doing?" he asks. "This City Hall story looks pretty
"We're going to be tight. Keep it down," warns
the make-up editor. "We can't squeeze the Wash-
ington story another inch."
"Okay," responds the city editor. He looks at the
penciled layout for Page One, scribbles some fig-
ures in the upper corner of the sheet of copy, and
with an expert twist sends it sailing onto the big
horseshoe desk next to his own.
"We're tight, Mac," he calls to the man in the slot.
"Cut it a third."
Seventeen minutes now to the deadline.. . only
ten for cutting, editing, headline-writing. For those
vital ten minutes, the responsibility rests on the
shoulders of the man in the slot ... newspaper par-
lance for the head of the copy desk.
A dozen considerations flash their chain light-
ning patterns across the slot man's mind. Tyler's
story ...Tyler the brilliant and touchy. He got it
out of that certain municipal department which is
giving off a faintly gamy odor. The boss will want

Colihan has nine and a half minutes to cut and
edit and write a top headline and sub-headline.
Every line of both headlines must count exactly so
many characters and spaces, figuring i as a half and
m and w one and a half characters.
Then the slot man will take just fifteen seconds
more to review Colihan's work, change "banned"
to "curbed," sniff the whole concoction for traces of
libel, and shoot it to the news editor in the compos-
ing room.
It is a shorter story than Tyler's original, and a
better one-keener of edge, swifter of impact, yet
complete in every essential detail.
The slot is not a glamorous job. It hasn't been
discovered by Shubert Alley or the fiction maga-
zines. To the cub reporter, eager for by-lines and
self-expression, the whole copy desk looks like a
backwater. It takes maturity-grasp of the whole
art of news presentation-to appreciate the little
miracles that a good copy desk passes.
Among the men who write and edit The Weekly
Newsmagazine, the man in the slot and the men on
the rim are held in greater re-

nomically joined to its fellows. Nouns must paint
landscapes, adjectives must do portraits, verbs must
shoot straight.
Each story in TIME must be direct, keen, com-
plete; each story must earn its place as an essential
link in understanding the world's news of the week.
) TIME has developed the art of news condensation,
as practiced by the slot men and rim men of the
dailies, to a new high. For every issue of TIME is
"tight"-its limit that irreducible minimum of
news every intelligent man and woman must know.
Which is one reason why TIME has won the genuine
devotion of 700,000 busy families-with their ranks
growing deeper every week.
This is one of a series of advertisements in
which the Editors of TIME hope to give College
Students a clearer picture of the world of news.
