Educational Relations of
U.S., Canada Are Discussed

Plans to better educational rela-
tions between Canada and the Unit-
ed States were discussed at a meet-
ing of the Canada-United States
Committee on Education last week in
Toronto, Dean James B. Edmonson
of the School of Education said.
The committee discussed pro-
grams to attract graduate students
from the United States to the sum-
mer sessions of the University of
Toronto and British Columbia, he
said. Harvard, he pointed out, is
also developing a graduate program
designed for teachers dealing with
the common problems of C'anada and
the United States.
Plans were also discussed, Dean
Edmonson said; for a study of what
is taught in the United States regar-
Toronto Offers
U' Grads Credit
A summer program for graduate
students, providing for University
credit, has been worked out with the
University of Toronto, Dean James
B. Edmonson of the School of Edu-
cation announced.
The University of Toronto is plan-
ning a summer workshop to develop
Canadian instruction in the United
States, he said. The program, he ex-
plained, will be a study of the history,
geography, and, problems of Canada
and is open to experienced teachers.
assume that his passing meant re-
treat from his aims."
Characterizing the late President
as a man of buoyant, indomitable op-
timism with ability to rouse the peo-
ple, he lauded not only his political
and administrative abilities but his
human qualities. "In his creed, his
philosophy and his methods, the man
whom he most resembles in Ameri-
can history is Thomas Jefferson,"
he said, comparing Roosevelt's abili-I
ties as a speaker to those of Jefferson
as a writer.
"Roosevelt, like Lincoln, died at
the climax of his career, having seen
the triumph of his policies; both
lived to see victory in war, but vic-
tory in peace remained to be accom-
plished by others," Prof. Slosson said.
He traced the President's career
from its beginning as an anti-Tam-
many leader in New York through
his successful assistant-secretaryship
of the Navy in World War I, his
fight against infantile paralysis, and
his governorship of New York to his
nomination to the presidency. ;
As President in the crucial years
of the Great Depression, he initiat-
ed remedies of a new sort which
collectively were called the New
Deal, Prof. Slosson explained, add-
ing that it was "the spirit and
courage behind these measures
which appealed to the public."
"There was a tremendous recov-
ery-a recovery," he stated, "which
the country expressed by a tribute
unequalled in history- a second,t
then a third, then a fourth term."
Alluding to his ability to foresee
the course of events and to his rec-
ognition of the threat of fascism,
rof. Slosson cited the "quarantine
the aggressor" speech in which, as
early as 1937, the President warned
the nation. "His greatest title to
greatness is his early and consistentf
understanding of the character oft
that menace," he said.
Prof. Slosson was introduced by
Elizabeth Hawley of Post-War Coun-
cil and the religious invocation was
given by Rev. Edward W. Blakeman,
counselor of religious education.

what should be taught regarding the

The committee agreed upon the
desirability of increasing the ex-
change of speakers at educational
meetings, he said, and it is planning
to increase the exchange of teachers
after the war.

4-Fs Will Save
Nation's Money
The nation's four million 4-F's
represent a tremendous saving to the
taxpayer of dollars that otherwise
would be paid out in post-war pen-
sion and compensation, James R.
Slocum, Commander of Washtenaw
County Chapter, DAV, said.
"The DAV," Slocum said, contends
that once a man has been passed
through Selective Service and accep-
ted by the armed forces, that man is
the government's responsibility and
is entitled to pension, compensation,
and any other benefits for service-
incurred or service-aggravated dis-
"Selective Service and the armed
forces are to be commented," he
stated, "for the excellent screening-
out process that has eliminated the
four million men who are now classi-
fied 4-F and who otherwise might be
government charges at the end of the
war and entitled to benefits of some
Slocum pointed out that even
though there has been great im-
provement in Selective Service clas-
sification as compared to the first
World War, thousands of men were
drafted who should have been re-
jected for physical reasons.
