Rackham Open
House Marks
Fourth Year
Detroit glasses Visited,
Maurer Leads Goup
Completion of four full years of
University extension activitiy at the
Rackham Educational Memorial in
IDetroit was celebrated Tuesday eve-
ning by an open house.
Various classes were open to the
public to permit Detroit residents to
observe the extension work in action.
Meeting in the main auditorium was
Prof. Wesley Maurer's discussion
group on "Books on Current Eco-
nomic, Political and Social Prob-
lems." The book discussed was
Charles Bolte's The NewVeteran.
The Detroit extension band, under
the direction of Prof. William D.
Revelli, and the orchestra under the
direction of Prof. David Mattern,
presented concerts.
Other classes which were open to
the public included "Radio Reading
and Dramntics," conducted by Prof.
David Owen of the speech depart-
ment, and two current courses in the
program in automobile body engi-
neering. Informal lectures and dis-
cussions on gardening, by Ruth
Mosher Place of the Detroit News
and Mrs. G. I. Bouton, and on na-
ture study, by Walter Nickell of the
Cranbrook Ins.titute of Science, were
also given.
All University extension work in
Detroit has centered at the Rack-
ham Building since it was dedicated
and occupied on Jan. 28, 1942.
Unabated Riots
CALCUTTA, Feb. 13- () -One
thousand American Troops on leave
in Calcutta were evacuated to safety
today while British troops sought to
quell anti-British riots that killed 22
persons and injured more than 200.
Indian demonstrators spreading
their activities disrupted rail service
between Bengal and Assam. Large
crowds blocked the tracks, refusing
to let engines pass. Gunfire echoed
throughout Calcutta as British mil-
itary patrols brought into the city
last night fired at roaming street
mobs of Hindus and Moslems during
the day.

abolished from Japanese life is the
regimented mind. The Japanese have
always carried out a distinct set of
social values, and society, as well as
the school system, has put stress on
the regimentation of minds.
The school system is so organized
that everywhere in the country chil-
dren are studying the same lesson on
the same day and all teaching man-
uals and instruction emanate from
Tokyo. Therefore, we should decen-
tralize the system of education. Local
prefectures should have more ad-
ministrative responsibility in relation
to schools, even if they must con-
tinue to subsidize educational activ-
ities with federal funds, he added.
"The mass memorization by rote
of ill-digested facts should also be
eliminated," Dr. Huntley pointed out.
"At present the Japanese child has
a badly overcrowded curriculum.
There is mass .spoon-feeding of
knowledge and a multiplicity of sub-
jects, not one of which the child can
really grasp. We should reduce the
cizrrictlum and put in some of the
subjects which are not allowed to be
discussed, such as social problems."
In the situation as it existed before
the war, the Japanese teacher was
subject to a rigid program of in-
struction arranged by the goven-
ment and didn't dare vary from the
prepared schedule. We should liber-
ate the teachers and alloz them to
speak their own minds freely. Other-
wise, we defeat our own purpose,
which is to liberate Japan from
something rather than deprive her
of something, he continued.
"Upuntil the present time the Jap-
anese have never had enough schools
for the people that wished to attend.
Perhaps this was because, as a total-
itarian state, Japan did not wish to
encourage the masses to go on with
higher education.
Everybody is compelled to go to
school through the sixth grade, but
beyond that point the facilities are
extremely inadequate. "Therefore,"
Dr. .Huntley contended, "we should
take the funds that were used for
military purposes and rechannel them
into buildings and school supplies."
Finally, in the field of extra-cur-
ricular activities, we should do away
with the military Budo sports which
deify the warrior class and institute
more team sports such as baseball,
which has so far been played mainly
by professionals, he claimed.
"Therefore, we should take our cue
from the new social values and em-
phasize individual growth in its ideal
aspect and also the idea of working
together as individuals for the good
of the people," Dr. Huntley con-
CongreSS GetS
Troops Could Be Sent
Abroad by President
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13--'P)-A
far-reaching government proposal,
under which President Truman could
send military experts to any country
in the world to help it improve its
armed forces, was disclosed today in
documents now in the hands of Con-
gress members.
Without advance publicity, the
State Department, working in consul-
tation with the War and Navy De-
partments, has drafted legislation
asking Congress' to grant the Presi-
dent the power to send such military
and naval missions.
Under existing laws, unless there is
a national emergency, the President
can send missions to countries of
the Western Hemisphere and the
Philippines. However, the war emer-
gency powers act now on the books

provides that during a war he can
dispatch missions to any country,
upon request. The proposed new leg-
islation would extend this authority
into peacetime.
