nation the mentally incompetent
were through the unwitting! coopera-
tion of muddle-headed sentimental-
ists permitted to flood the population
with an inundating tide of insanity,
imbecility, and immorality. It is the
medical profession whose short-sight-
ed practices are largely responsible
for our plight, said the pessimistic Dr.
Hooton.
The Germap state, he unequivocal-
ly set forth, has so thoroughly cor-
rupted the German people that noth-
ing short of complete obliteration of
that state can eradicate this plague
spot of the modern world.
Russia he characterized as a prim-
itive, uncouth, and backward nation.
EIooton added that its complete
acceptance of a despotic government
under the guise of Communism shows
a state of stupidity that does not
augur well for the future of the
Soviet.
Biological deterioration, in his
opinion, is responsible for the pres-
ent plight of France. Hooton's in-

Education Bulletin
Discusses Century
Of Progress Here
One hundred years of educational
progress in Michigan is the theme of
the recently released October issue
of the Bulletin of the School of Edu-
cation.
'Introductory material on the Cen-
tennial Celebration of the li erary
college by Prof. Wesley H. Maurer
of the journalism department briefly
reviews the activities of the anniver-
sary holiday.
Prof. Clarence D. Thorpe 'of the
English department follows with an
article containing excerpts from the
speeches of the centennial program
stressing problems and progress of
education.
"Who Are The Gifted," by Prof.
William Clark Trow of the education
school explains the educational psy-
chology of training intellectually
gifted children.
Warren R. Good, secretary of the
editorial board, edits the bulletin
every month to which various mem-
bers of the faculty contribute articles.
The bulletin also describes the ac-
tivities of various meribers of the
education school faculty and reviews
new books from the educational field.

acter which led France arrogantly
and stupidly into a war which ended
in its complete subjection.
Summing up his tirade against na-
tional and individual lives as they
are lived today, the Harvard profes-
sor outlined very sketchily what must
be done if man is to save himself
from the fate of the dinosaur whose
immense bulk with its small brain
and poor coordination led to self-!
extinction.
He asked that we forget our fool-
ish emotionalism and consiier ob-
jectively the problems of breeding.
Death, he claimed, is the means of
natural selection and to ignore that
fact is to ignore the principles by
which man may be kept healthy in
both body and mind.
To listen to Hooton is to become in-
terested in not only a subject, butin
a personality, for Hooton is his own
best refutation concerning the men-
tal abilities of modern man.
