the Gargoyle staff will have no
right of appeal.
Labeling the March issue as a
"threat. to the high-minded prin-
ciples of 100 per cent American
non-Communist education," Lu-
cius P. Haggard, spokesman forl
the anti-Gargoyle forces declar-
ed, "Members of the Gargoyle have1
infiltrated themselves into all
walks of campus life, posing as;
ordinary students in many classes.
They are excellent organizers and
powerful but insidious trouble-
makers. They foment unrest by
asking pertinent questions. If;
their fellow classmates knew the
principles for which the staff
stands, they would not tolerate
Gargoylists in their University."
Muchado Manifesto
"Managing editor E. H. McKin-
lay should be drawn and quarter-
ed," Markham B. Muchado, pres-
ident of the "I am a University
Man" Clurb, asserted yesterday.
McKinlay, who posed for the art
staff sketches of Garg, has been
drawn before, but never quarter-
ed. "I used to live in Willow Vil-
lage, though," he said in'his own
defense, "but that is neither here
nor in Ypsilanti."
Action to curtail the Gargoyle
arose following the staff's an-
nouncement last week that the
March issue would present Garg's
Guide to the Comprehensive Edu-
"Sixteen years in sixteen pages,"
is the staff's claim. Starting with
pre-school nursery rhymes, the
March Gargoyle (scheduled for
sale Friday) is designed to take
the prospective student through
grammar school and high school
in one easy swoop. Delayed mo-
mentarily by two pages of regis-
tration material, he is then able
to complete his essential college
education in English, history, geo-
graphy, mathematics, biology, and
foreign languages.
"It's not that we object so much
to the type of education Garg of-
fers. In any enlightened democ-
racy we agree that both sides of
the March issue should be pre-
sented. But the Gargoyle has ab-
solutely no regard for University
efficiency," Beauregard J. Nore-
gard pointed out in explaining
why Garg was banned.

Story Teller
Wins Babe,
The Blue Ox
Babe, the Blue Ox, returned to
Ann Arbor Saturday when she
was awarded to "Texas" Webster.
winner of the Liar's Contet teld
by the forestry school at its all-
nual banquet with the Michigani
State College forestry school.
Babe, a replica of Paul Bunyan's
pet, was carved by a University
forestry student several years ago
and is the symbol of champion
"tall" story-telling between Mich-
igan State College and the Uni-
versity's forestry schools. '1 his is
the second time that the Univer-
sity foresters won her back.
Webster's tale on the plight of
a domesticated catfish in Texas
was judged by faculty members of
both universities to be "taller"
than his opponent's, which con-
cerned Paul Bunyan's corn stalk.
Guest speaker was Roberts
Mann, Superintendent of Cook
County Forest Preserve, Illinois
who gave a talk on bringing con-
servation to the city, and em-
phasized the necessity for preserv-
ing a wildlife area around the city.
This banquet is held annually
between Michigan State College
and the University.

adaptations in the Psychology 41
course, Guetzkow said that ques
tionnaires to be really effectiv
would probably have to vary some
what from course to course as wel
as from department to depart

variations, he said, is that teach
ers want to determine the value o
particular teaching techniques.

iere( in the Iower Peninsula of
Michigan has climbed to 150, it
was announced yesterday by E. J.
Soop, assistant director of the
University Extension Service.
Upper and Lower Peninsula
The Lower Peninsula program
began Feb. 24, and is now running
concurrently with the field course
in the Upper Peninsula, which
was reinstituted last fall. "This is
the first time we have had this
type of program running in both
the Upper and Lower Peninsula
at the same time," Soop said.
'Circuit Riding'
The main purpose of a field
course is to bring classwork into
localities which normally could
not be reached by regular Univer-
sity extension courses. To iccom-
plish this, a different faculty
member leaves each week for a
"circuit riding" trip throughout
the areas coveredby each course.
He spends one day in each com-
munity, teaching two consecutive
periods of the same class. This
plan makes it possible to estab-
lish courses in points whose loca-
tion would make impossible the
usual Extension Service policy of
holding one hour classes several
times a week.
The education field course now
being taught has been prepared
1 under the direction of Dean J. B.
- Edmonson, of the school of educa-
tion. The purposes of the cours
-are to conserve the time and ef-
l fort of those who wish to keep

classroom instruction, provide fo]
an effective tie-up between edu-
f cational theory and practice, anc
to stimulate a genuine desire or
the part of the teacher to grow

To Address IRA

Bias in textbooks is a I hrt'at t
a sympathletic understaroi t g ofi[ i
other countries as well as to
friendly relations between regiins
and lpopulatiOn} groups of our own
country, Dean James B. lmon -
son, of the education school said
"We need an authentic report
on what is taught and what
should be taught in the American
schools and colleges about Russia
we also need to know what is
taught in Russian schools anut
the United States," Dean Edmon-
son stated.
Relatively Unerased
He believes that American text-
books are relatively free from de-
liberate bias, but that there is
grave danger that prejudicial
teaching may result from the pro-
paganda to which pupils and
teachers are continuously subject-
It is true that even if textbooks
were completely free from bias, it
would still be possible for preju-
dices to find expression in the
classroom since teachers and pu-
pils are both influenced by preju-
dices expressed in their homes, in
the newspapers, and over the ra-
dio, he declared, adding that sec-
tional prejudices often make it
impossible to avoid prejudiced

try is grossly misrepresented to

'There is, however, much evidence
that American children are learn-
in little about Russia except the
views of extremists as expressed
by the propaganda of the anti-
Russian groups and the equally
objectional propaganda of the
pro-Russian advocates."
Common Ideals
Immediately after World War I
a study was made entitled, "Civic
Attitudes in American School
Textbooks," which revealed evi-
dence of some unwarranted bias
in textbooks, Dean Edmonson re-
The Canada-United S t a t e s
Committee on Education produced
evidence to the effect that the
s:chools of both Canada and the
United States have, failed to stress
adequately the "common ideals
and aspirations, the mutual prob-
lems and common achievements,
and the other evidences of genu-
ine friendship." Similar reports
are needed on the textbooks of
other countries," Dean Edmonson
