EDUCATION INSTITUTE:
Father Must Help Raise
Child,_Says Psychologist

'Swing Your Partner!'

Father should have more to do
with raising his children than just
"bringing home the bacon," Her-
bert L. Bodwin, consultant in men-

'S eed Age
People' Stern
"In a world dependent upon
speed, the old person is on the
social scrap heap," Associate Prof.
Karl Stern, M.D., chief of the
geronotogical unit of the psychia-
tric department at McGill Uni-
versity, said in an address before
the Parent-Education Institute
yesterday.
"The problem of the oldster is
becoming increasingly important
- with the raise in average age of the
population in this age of speed,"
he added.
ONE OF the frequent difficulties
found among the aged is that of
living in the past both mentally
nd physically.
"Many of the problems of the
oldster could be reduced by de-
creasing the tension between the
social ego and the true person-
ality. The closer the traits of the
person others know, and the
person we really are; the bet-
ter adjusted the person will be,"
Dr. Stern said.
An address by Mrs. C. C. Clark,
regional vice-president of the Na-
tional Congress of Parents and
Teachers will close the 20th annual
Parent-Education Institute.

tal health education, declared at
yesterday's session of the Parent
Education Institute.
Bodwin, advisor to the Michigan
State Department of Health, made
a plea for fathers to take a greater
share in the rearing of children.
Too often fathers feel they owe
nothing but the earning of a liv-
ing, he said.
* * *
BODWIN SAID a sharing of dis-
cipline and interest in the child
by father and mother would cre-
ate the relationship that is the
"best insurance of good mental
health for the child."
Othcr speakers on a panel dis-
cussing "The Child in the Home"
were Mfrs. Belle Farley Murray,
lecturer for the University Ex-
tension Service, and Dr. Alvin
F. Zander, assistant professor of
educational psychology at the
University.
Mrs. Murray cited the hurry of
modern life and the widespread
prevalence of fatigue as the two
major "interfering factors" in good
home relationships.
PARENTS' DEMANDING inde-
pendence of children before they
are ready to assume it, Professor
Zander said, often create problems
for the child when he is forced to
direct his own development.
At yesterday's meeting Dr. H.
H. Giles, director of the Center
for Human Relations Studies of
New York University, told the In-
stitute that problems of human
relations do not depend on the
minority or class involved alone,
but on the entire group.

DOING THE "RASPA"-Members of the University's English Language Institute, in one of their
many informal activities programs, are doing a Mexican folk dance called the "Raspa." The Insti-
tute sponsors such activities in an effort to acquaint the students with social life in the United
States and at the same time to give them an opportunity to practice the English they have learn-
ed. Watching the dancers are Institute Director, Prof. Charles C. Fries and Mrs. Fries, background.

By WALTER VOGTMANN
Is a pocket watch a pocket or a
watch?
Problems such as this are no
laughing matter when you study
English as a foreign language.
Neither is it a simple matter.
* * *
NEVERTHELESS, this is the
ind of problem 60 Latin-Ameri-
an and Siamese students are fac-
ig in an intensive eight-week
ourse in "streamlined English"
t the University's English Lan-
uage Institute, of which Prof.
!harles C. Fries is director.
Founded in 1941 as the first of
its kind, the Institute under-
takes to establish a basic knowl-
edge of the English language,
and at the same time orient the
student to, life in the United
States.
Instruction is not limited to the
our hours spent in class each day,
ut continues in a program of in-
ormal activities which give the
tudents opportunities for practice
f their newly-learned tongue.
* * *
THESE ACTIVITIES include
nusical programs, dancing, games,
novies and excursions, all of which

aid in introducing them to Ameri-
can customs and manners.
Language Instituie students
are encouraged to speak English
at all times-even at meals
which are taken together at East
Quad with an instructor at each
table. "Sometimes however,"
Assistant Director Robert Lado
admitted, "when they get excit-
ed, they burst -into a flurry of
their native language."
The Institute's methods use
comparisons of English with the
native language of the student, en-
abling specific difficulties to be
predicted and eliminated.
* * *
FOR EXAMPLE, a Chinese stu-
dent may say, "My country ex-
ports lice." What he really means
to say is, "exports rice." The rea-
son for this is that the "r" sound
never has initial position in a
Chinese word. Another example of
innate language difficulty for the
Spanish speaking student is to
say "tongue" instead of "ton."
In accordance with its meth-
od, the Institute does not con-
sider memorizing vocabulary as
its chief problem, but rather
emphasizes mastery of the Eng-
lish sound system and the struc-
ture arrangement of the lan-
guage. At the end of the eight
weeks, the student has a work-
I

ing vocabulary of about 1,800
words,
Technicalities of grammar are
omitted, for the Institute does not
believe that grammatical explana-
tion' of language is neessary for
common usuage.
ACTUALLY, the students are-
often much more perturbed when
it comes to learning American cus-
toms than in learning the intri-
cacies of the language. For in-
stance, the Latin-Americans con-
sider American hand-shaking cus-
toms very rude, simply because we
don't do it often enough.
Another custom which sur-
prises them is the casual cam-
pus goodnight kiss which they
may witness while passing a
women's residence; for the act
to them indicates much greater
intimacy.
Since its organization, with of-
fices in the Rackham Building, the
Institute has turned out more than
3,000 students whose ages have
ranged between 18 and 60. How-
ever, most of them are between 25
and 30.
Since the Institute's primary
purpose is to help foreign stu-
dents in profiting from American
universities, it enrolls a consider-
able number of practicing lawyers,
doctors and engineers who plan
advanced study in their fields.
