Urged To Back
Testing Plan
Find' Children's Skills
Early, Ellis Advises
Support by the Michigan P.T.A.
and other parent groups for an ex-
panded program of vocational test-
ing and guidance in the public
schools was urged by Dr. A. Caswell
Ellis, of the Extension Division of
the University of Texas, in an ad-
dress yesterday before the University
Parent Education Institute.
Declaring that there are "millions
of vocationally misplaced adults,"
Dr. Ellis said that the ability and
talents of children should be discov-
ered and developed while they are
still in school.
"Every year in this country we are
throwing $2,500,000,000 worth of edu-
cation at 33,000,000 heads," Dr. Ellis
said. "As yet we do very little to dis-
cover which particular chunk of edu-
cation should be directed at each
Discussing the "failure of children
to cooperate," Dr. Ralph H. Ojemann
of the Iowa Child Welfare Research
Station, declared that non-coopera-
tion or misbehavior results when a
child's fundamental desires or needs
,are blocked.
These needs include a desire for
security, a need for physical activity,
a desire for favorable response from
other people, and an ambition to be
a significant individual, Dr. Ellis
said, pointing out that the child must
be helped to find other ways of satis-
fying basic needs without resorting
to rebellion or misbehavior.
Asserting that parents should help
with such school poblems as teacher
welfare, out-of-school recreation pro-
grams, and the consolidation of rural
schools, Mrs. Helen M. Tewes, of the
University Elementary School, said
that parents should not try to direct
the day-to-day administration of the
schools or the formulation of stu-
dent government or other student
The next great educational move-
ment in America will be a drive to set
up an adult education center in every
city and town, Dr. and Mrs. Harry
Overstreet, educational psychologists
Pointing out that a generation ago,
a national movement put public li-
braries in almost every town in the
country, Dr. Overstreet said the same
sort of general awakening to the need
for adult education will give us adult
community centers.

Hopwood Winer Sea rces
Vaintly for Gaelic Instructor

Robert True, winner of the Hop-
wood play-writing award this sum-
mer, is seeking out a bit of old Ire-
land in Ann Arbor.
Since June he's been on the look-
out for an instructor in Gaelic so le
can start reading Irish folk tales in
the original. But in all Ann Arbor
he's not been able to find one per-
son who has an acquaintance with
the old Irish tongue or a desire to
learn it with hin.
"The University teaches anything
from Icelandic to Old Provencal," he

says, "but the language of Eire, spok-
en by more than two million Irish-
men, just seems to be left oll. of the
He compares the Irish folk tales
with legends and myths in Greek and
Latin that have served as sources for
a great many tales in Engish litera-
True would be happy if any Ann
Arborite who'd like to help him out
in mastering Gaelic would call hire
at 2-4180, 1208 Cambridge Court.
"There must be someone in Ann
Arbor who speakg Irish," he hopes.

GOP Sweeps
National Vote
For Congress
(Contrl fro"n Pae 2)
in undisputed command of the 80th
Congress which meets Jan. 3.
Probably little change in United
States foreign policy. Leading Re-
publicans endorsed its present lines
and even helped mold it.
A wholesale housecleaning of con-
gressional office-holders, from speak-
er of the House and President Pro-
Tem of the Senate down to page boys
and Capitol cops. Republicans seize
chairmanships of all committees.
A brighter political luster for big
names in the GOP, men like Dewey,
Bricker, Vandenberg, Taft, Warren,
Lodge and others. They have been
discussed for presidential or vice
presidential nominations in '48.
A trend that could carry into 1948
and beyond. The Republican torrent
swept Democrats from power in such
key states as New York, Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts, Ohio, Illinois Cali-
fornia, and President Truman's own
The Republican leader of the
Senate may be Robert A. Taft of
Ohio. Along with the leadership,'
he may pick off the chairmanship
of the important, tax-shaping Fi-
nance Committee. Walter George
of Georgia has it now.
Michigan's Arthur H. Vandenberg
possibly will take over from Tennes-
see's Kenneth McKellar as Senate
President. And Vandenberg proba-
bly will replace Tom Connaly of
Texas as Chairman of the Foreign
Relations Committee. Both Vanden-
berg and Connally have been at the
