FAULTY EDUCATION:
Edmonson Discloses Lack of
Canadian, U.S. Understanding

Canada and the United States,
good neighbors for many years
and each a good customer of the
other, do not understand each
other's historical and political de-
velopment very well, according to
Dean J. B. Edmonson of the edu-
cation school.
Co-chairman of the Canada-
United States Committee on Edu-
cation, Dean Edmonson points to
a recent report of this committee
on national history textbooks as
Faculty Group
Offers Concert
Beethoven, Mozart,
Brahms Featured
A faculty ensemble will present
a concert featuring Mozart,
Brahms, and Beethoven at 8:38
p.m. Sunday, in the Lydia Men-
delsohn Theatre.
The ensemble will include pro-
fessors Gilbert Ross, violinist, Ol-
iver Edel, cellist, and Joseph
Brinkman, pianist.
Mozart's Trio in E major, Kanto
542 including the Allegro, An-
dante grazioso and Allegro move-
ments and Brahms' Trio in C
major, Opus 87 with four move-
ments, Allegro, Andante con moto,
Scherzo and Allegro giocoso will
nake up the first part of the pro-
gram.
Following intermission the three
movements of Beethoven's Trio in
D major, Allegro vivace, Largo as-
sai et expressivo, and Presto will
b'e given.
The concert is open to the gen-
eral public.

evidence of this lack of under-
standing.
These textbooks,used in the pub-
lic schools, pay little attention to
Canadian-American relations in
their development or in their
present status, he explains. The
Committee, which was appointed
by the American Council on Edu-
cation, found during a two-year
survey that students on both sides
of the border were appallingly ig-
norant of each other. Some Amer-
icans do not even realize that
Canada is an independent nation,
it was noted.
High School Texts Negligent
"The study of history books re-
vealed that American high school
texts gave an average of 1.3 per
cent of their space to Canada, or
a little more than eight pages in
the average book," Dean Edmon-
son comments. "Most of these
pages concern the period ending
in 1763-the period of exploration
and of struggle between France
and England for control of the
New World."
The period between 1914 and
1945, during which Canada
achieved complete national inde-
pendence and also during which
Canadian - American cooperation
increased, is almost completely
neglected in American histories,
the report reveals. Economic re-
lations of the two countries are
passed over lightly, even though
American trade with Canada is
greater than with any other coun-
try in the world, it continues.
Writers De-emphasize
Canadian textbook writers have
likewise been guilty of de-empha-
sizing relations of the two coun-
tries, Dean Edmonson points out.
In i age of increasing national-
ism this is perhaps to be expected,
but it is a condition which could
easily be corrected in future texts,
the committee believes.

Atom Agre Toddles From Fifth
Br thdayto New Discoveries

By JEAN FAGAN
Students working for advanced
degrees in the social sciences
have a unique opportunity for re-
search through the Flint Project,
which was established in 1946 by
the University Institute of Hu-
man Adjustment, according to
Prof. A. H. Hawley, of the sociol-
ogy department.
The project is directed by the
Metropolitan Community Semi-
nar, a group of professors in the
fields of public administration, po-
litical science, geography, business
administration, economics and so-
ciology, and is maintained in or-
der to provide on-the-spot re-
search material for graduate stu-
dents.
An advisory board, consisting of
Flint businessmen and executives
who are interested in the project,
is the final governing body of the
branch office.
Board Excludes Unions
Despite statements by the Uni-
versity that organized labor, as an
important segment of urban so-
ciety, should be present in this
group, the board refuses to include
unions among its members.
As a result the project, which
was set up to enable students to
obtain data for sociological re-
search, is hampered when at-
tempting td discover material
about organized labor, Prof.
Hawley said.

GRADUATE RESEARCH:
Flint Project Presents Unique

ART CINEMA LEAGUE and IRA present
PAUL ROBESON in
NATIVE LAND

The project grew out of the first
Metropolitan Community Semi-
nar, established in 1931, which
tried to bring together the several
facets of sociology and to coordi-
nate study in the specialized as-
pects of community living. j
Service to City
Under the present setup, the re-
search center not only aids these
students, but gives concrete serv-
ice to the city of Flint. Through
investigation of such questions as
the role of organized labor in a
community, the effect of the 15
mill tax in the city, and studies of
population shifts, they have made
suggestions which have been car-
ried out and found to be effect-
ive in city government.
Prof. Hussey To Discuss
SGeology as a Profession
Prof. Russell C. Hussey of the
geology department will speak be-
fore the annual Men's Career Con-
ference at Oberlin College, Friday
and Saturday, on the subject of
"Geology as a Profession."
Speakers from all parts of the
country are selected each year to
discuss career possibilities of the
sciences and arts as part of the
conference.

The Epic Struggle to Make Civil Liberty a Reality

also March of Time:

"Americans All"

By The Associated Press

Lilienthal said the U.S. had

The atomic age observed its fifth spent some $2,500,000,000 on

birthday anniversary yesterday
toddling forward with precocious
strength toward new weapons, new
medical discoveries, new displaced
persons and possibly toward "the
ultimate secrets of nature."
New atomic weapons, made
from both uranium and pluton-
ium, are "in current production
and under design" by American
scientists and engineers, David E.
Lilienthal, chairman of the Atomic
Energy Commission, revealed in a
speech at Atlantic City, N.J.

atomic development and the total
will rise to approximately $5,000,-
000,000 in the next few years "if
this country really means bus-
iness."
The Commission chairman said
the reason a group of businessmen
and engineers was given access
recently to secret atomic informa-
tion was that chosen groups must
have this data if atomic energy is
to advance rapidly for peaceful as
well as military purposes.
