How-Not What-To Teach

MUSIC

ALTHOUGH one might have thought that
education schools in general, and the
University's School of Education in particu-
lar, had already reached the nadir of real
value, apparently some education "experts"
think that still more damage can yet be
chieved.
Under the quise of "improving the qual-
ity of teaching in Michigan" the State
Board of Education has proposed that 10
hours in purely education school courses
be added to the curriculum requirements
for teachers' certificates. Under the pro-
posed change, 40 hours would be required
for general courses under the education
school.
The essential ingredient of a good teach-
er is knowledge of the subject being taught.
No amount of learning how to smile in a
manner that encourages little children, or
knowing how to crayon drawings, light a
room pleasantly, fix a bulletin board ac-
cording to the latest design techniques or
arrange chairs in perfect circles for discus-
sions will substitute for genuine and thor-
ough knowledge of the subject.
Already the child produced by the sort
of perverted' progressive education systems
where* methods are stressed above content
has begun to enter the nation's colleges and
universities. He cannot assimilate what he
reads, he cannot write a logical essay and
more important, he cannot think in an in-
telligent, rational manner.
Originally progressive education was
initiated so that any child might advance
as quickly in school as possible. The per-
version of this original intent has been
brought about partly because of a short-
age of teachers, but it is due also to efforts
of certain group dynamics experts, sociolo-
gists and psychologists who act on the
belief that flunking a child because he
cannot read or write will "hurt the child's
feelings and give him a complex or two."
As a result, children who learn nothing
in first grade are pushed on to second
grade, and the entire second grade class
is held back because the teacher must
spend all her time trying to teach the
backward child what he should have learn-
ed in first grade. And so on through high
school. 19
But instead of deploring the resulting
backwardness of the schools, education "ex-
perts have glorified the system which can

produce nothing but children who either
hold gack upper classes or are held back
themselves by below-average students.
Old-fashioned principles of reading, writ-
ing and arithmetic in some circles are no
longer even considered necessities. One Ohio
principal summed up the situation about a
year ago when speaking of the future child
educated in so-called "progressive schools";
"It is no more necessary that a boy learn
to read than it is for him to be a virtuoso
on the violin, and no more neeessary that
a girl learn to write than it is for her to be
an expert cook."
The principal neglected to say, however,
what the future of America would be if the
country's leaders remained illiterate.
Anyone will admit that it is necessary
for a teacher to be able to present his sub-
ject in such a manner that students will
be able to learn quickly. But the idea that
the method of teaching is more valuable
than the content of the course to be taught
has been promulgated so long that teach-
ers are often graduated barely knowing the
rudiments of the subject they will be em-
ployed to teach.
After graduation, teachers who them-
selves have been educated in this manner
will only hamper potentially-brilliant stu-
dents because they cannot offer the above-
average student the ready and profound
knowledge he needs to maintain interest
in a course. Indeed, such educational meth-
ods cannot produce anything but a common
child, fitted only for common tasts in a
world that needs unusually intelligent, bet-
ter-educated students than ever before.
If, in the future, able leaders are to be
developed from today's youth, it is neces-
sary that Boards of Education insist that
teachers receive as much dtailed know-
ledge of', their subject as possible and
that students must not only graduate, but
receive a master's degree, before.they can
obtain a teacher's certificate.
Only by rescinding the proposal to add
10 more hours of methodology courses and
40 hours of general courses under the edu-
cation school to the curriculum required for
teachers' cretificates can the State Board
of Education begin to reverse the trend in
education which has produced a constant
cycle of poorer students and poorer teachers.

Marcantonio Vs. the Narrow Path

V ITO MARCANTONIO, chairman of the
American Labor Party, has announced
his resignation from the party on the ground
that it is "a house divided against itself."
The divisive force, clearly, is the Communist
element.
During the recent New York mayoralty
campaign The Daily Worker urged editor-
ially that citizens vote for Robert F. Wag-
ner, the victorious Democratic candidate,
rather than for the ALP man. The Work-
er did endorse the other ALP candidates.
This led up to Marcantonio's charge that
the ALP was becoming a mere "pressure
group" rather than a party. Since the dis-
misal showing the party made in last week's
elections, The New York Times has pro-
nounced it "dead, for all practical purposes."
Yet it was not always that way. Marcan-
tonio himself had considerable support for
years.
Thus it seems that the Communists have
suffered another defection through their
own insensitivity to an aspect of political
reality. Only a hard-core Communist could

submit to a discipline which dictated the
death of his own party. Just last year the
Daily Worker proclaimed that all good Com-
munists should desert the Progressive Party
and infiltrate more firmly established politi-
cal organizations. In the case of the ALP,
the Reds seem to have deserted another of
their instruments.
It is only through such events as this
that one can separate the slaves of the
party line those who may have some spark
of independence. Marcantonio's defection
surprises us because it is very hard to
distinguish one from the other before
the break comes.
As still another name is added to the
list of alienated party-liners, the utter fu-
tility of the Communists as a political, as
opposed to a conspiratorial, force is con-
firmed. The agility required to tread the
narrow path the Communists set for them-
selves seems to be beyond the power of all
but the mindless.

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA; George Szell,
conductor
ONLY THREE orchestras appear repeat-
edly year after year in Ann Arbor. They
are the Boston and Philadelphia, whose
fame and excellence are a priori among
concert-goers, and the Cleveland Orchestra,
an ensemble technically as well equipped as
the other two, and equally if not superiorly
conducted.
For this year's visit George Szell chose
a program of Berlioz' "Roman Carnival"
Overture, Debussy's "Prelude a l'apres-
midi d'un faune," Variations. for Orches-
tra on a Theme by Paganini by the con-
temporary German composer, Boris Blach-
er, and Schubert's Symphony No. 7 in C
major; a program not conspicuous for any
daring or ingenuity, but nonetheless pro-
viding ample musical interest caused
mainly by the inclusion of the Schubert
symphony, a work not heard here for
many years.
Both the Berlioz and Debussy were clear-
cut performances, orchestrally ludid, par-
ticularly the Berlioz where attacks, phras-
ing and intonation were a masterpiece of
precision, andN interpretively strict. Szell
is deceptive in that his conducting technic
shows a man given to the romantic ges-
ture, the conductor acting out the phrases
of the music. Just the opposite is true. He
is the craftsman maintaining complete con-
trol over his instrument; no sound can sur-
prise him, it must be exactly as he desired.
He knows how loud his orchestra can play,
and how soft.
Maintaining such a strict control over
the orchestra left the Debussy without the
spontaneous, almost effortless rhapsodic
flow a French conductor would have given
the piece, but Szell did have it moving grace-
fully. His approach is certainly valid. It
merely shows a different focus from the us-
ual. French interpretation which would have
the orchestral textures more diffuse and mel-
low rather than highly concentrated on
one exact sound.
The performance of the Blacher Varia-
tions on a Theme of Paganini was the
first in Ann Arbor. They use the same
theme of Paganini as do the Rachmani-
noff, but to a different purpose. Blacher
evidently has tried to give his variations
some humor. This was immediately point-
ed up by the first variation which was a
crescendo going nowhere but to a whisper
in the woodwinds. The effect was quite
startling, but on the whole the variations
suffer from two main faults. There was a
lack of melodic inventiveness, the theme
doesn't really offer much to start with,
and lack of mood change.
The evening's climax was the Schubert
symphony. Here is a very difficult work to
conduct. Its length brings problems similar
to Beethoven's Eroica. Most careful atten-.
tion must be paid to dynamics, climaxes,
atd tempi in order to avoid monotony.
Szell triumphed eminently. In the first
movement, where there are so many cli-
maxes at the end that each could easily
become anticlimatic, he carefully gauged
their intensity so they would flow naturally.
His choice of tempi throughout the work
left each movement with a fresh and vital
sound. He clearly defined all the inner parts
and subtle changes when sections were re-
peated thus giving the work variety and
negating any feeling of monotony its length
might cause. The symphony with its many
wonderful melodies, any other composer
would have written two symphones with the
melodic material in this work, sang from
beginning to end.
COMPOSITION FORUM
THE FIRST of the current season's Com-
position Forums got off to a splendid
start last night as seven works were played,
six written by students and one by a pro-
fessional.
The professional work was Poem for Vio-
lin and Piano by the noted composer from
Royal Oak, Michigan, Clark Eastham. Influ-
enced by the nineteenth centry, its rhap'-
sodic lines were rewarding and elegantly
written for the violin. It was beautifully per-

formed by Morris Hochberg, assistant con-
certmaster 'of the Detroit Symphony Or-
chestra, and his wife, Sylvia Hochberg.
Of the student works played, three were
by newcomers to the local musical scene.
Bruce Wise was represented by Three
Songs to poetty of Stephen Spender, ex-
quisitely sung by Ruth Orr, and a Sonata,
for Flute and Piano, performed expres-
sively by Jacque Radant. Mr. Wise pro-
vided the piano accompaniments in both
cases. The other newcomer, Wayne Slaw-
son, was represented by Three Circles for
Piano, his first work. They were taste-
fully played by Phyllis Bentley.
Mr. Wise demonstrated considerable har-
monic and melodic ingenuity. His music
made a deep impression upon the audience.
Mr. Slawson's pieces achieved effective
moods and showed promise of more pro-
found efforts to come.
The remaining works were David Tice's
Trio for Oboe, Violin and Cello, respectively
played by Sylvia Sherman, George Papich
and Camilla Heller; Reginald Hall's Poems.
for Music on texts of Robert Hillyer, per-
formed by Leslie Bennett, tenor, and Jus-
tine Votypka, pianist; and Courtney Sher-
brooke Adams' Fantasy for Piano and Or-
chestra, with Lois Gauger playing the solo
part and David Tice playing the orchestral
accompaniment on a second piano. All three
works were expressive and musically effec-

Student Exchange .. .
To the Editor:
REGARDING the recent letters
in the Daily urging a student
exchange program between the;
United States and the Soviet Un-
ion, I would like to take exception
to the remarks that the McCar-
ran-Walter Immigration Act rep-'
resents the major obstacle toward
the fulfillment of such a program.
Certainly, I cannot condone the
discriminatory features of the law
nor for that matter can I approveI
of it in toto. But in reference to

of evidence.
The prosecutor and his assist-
ant. Mr. Kaess and Mr. Huntley,
are men to watch. A conviction
will set them on their way to
fame and fortune; and they have
for their purposes that necessary
disregard of the implications for
democracy of putting a political
party on trial. It is not the con-
cern of ambition that the defend-
ants about whom they construct
their frame-up ar'e, after all, hu-
man beings.

By JOSEPH ALSOP
ONGKONG-The traveler leaving Hong-
kong for Saigon is also leaving the im-
mediate area of Chinese Communist pres-
sure in Asia for the area that is probably
next in line. This is a good time to take
stock, in a preliminary way, of American
policy in the Far East. But it may as well
be said that the results are both melancholy
and shocking.
Item by item, as one goes down the list
of activities that pass for American policy
here, one finds that thergoods in the stock-
room are'not as represented at home, or
simply are not there at all. A firm that
carried on its business with such a stock-
room would have trouble with the law.
A characteristic experience of the traveler
here was a discovery this reporter made on
Formosa. Back home, the State Depart-
ment is making loud, bold noises, in defer-
ence to such members of the Senate as Wil-
liam Knowland of California, about veto-
ing the entry of the Chinese Communists
into the United Nations. But this is strictly
a phony.
At the very beginning of the Eisenhower
administration, none other than the Chi-
nese Nationalist Foreign Minister, the able
George Yeh, put the real facts before Sec-
retary of State John Foster Dulles and our
UN representative, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr.
At the sixth session of the United Nations
General Assembly, the American delegation
went officially on record that the choice be-
tween rival governments-for example, be-
tween the Chinese Communists or Nation-
alists-as the proper representatives of their
country, was not subject to a UN veto. We
simply do not have the weapon our leaders

"We don't think it matters very much, and
we're quite ready to open formal diplomatic
relations with Peking providing Peking isn't
going to treat our representative as a 'Nego-
tiations'Commissioner,' which has happened
to the British. Again, if our allies really want
it and there is no interference with For-
mosa, we shan't even object very much to
seeing the Chinese Communists in the UN.
But there is just one little condition that
really has got to be met in full, before any-
body, including our allies, can consider these
steps. The Chinese Communists have got to
start acting like civilized members of the
world community, in Korea and Indo-China
for-instance. Let that test once be met, and
we'll go along."
Of course the test never will be met. Yet
such a speech will pull the rug out from
under the wool heads in London and the
appeasers elsewhere. Once we have taken
this irrefutable reasonable and non-political
stand, the other members of the UN will
have no alternative but to back us up. Hence,
instead of the ultimate admission of the
Chinese Communists to the UN being pretty
inevitable, they will almost certainly not be
admitted, which is what we want.
The big, empty talk to keep the Senate
sweet is just one of the frauds. Another
fraud is the portrayal of Japan as a bas-
tion of power out here, when Japanese re-
armament cannot possibly produce real
results for years to come. Still another
fraud is the situation on Formosa. What
we have done there is good as far as it
goes. But on the one hand, the Gener-
ralissimo's armies are aging. If we want
these armies to return to the mainland,
