high School Seniors

bional Policies Commission, Dean J.
B. Edmonson of the University.
School of Education declared that
he Commission had given much of
its time to a thorough discussion and

high school diplomas and one year
of university education at the same
The Dean expressed himself in
favor of the plan, provided it were
worked out with the full cooperation
of both the high schools and the uni-
versities. And he added that New
England colleges, were definitely in
favor of the plan as the only means
of preserving the universities as they

used for his own purposes, it has
proven to be one of the mainstays in
his hold on German youth. In the
opinion of the delegates to the meet-
ing, the right use of education could
vastly improve the intelligence of
America's youth without warping
their minds along strictly political
