TRADITION DISPROVED:
Americans Better Educated Today

By DIANE LaBAKAS

v
'

Recent comparisons have indi-
cated modern education is as good
or better than traditional educa-
tion, Prof. William Clark Trow
of the School of Education said.
An advocate of "modern as dis-
tinguished from 'progressive' edu-
cation," Prof. Trow denied recent
charges by several professors that
'Americans are poorer educated to-
day than they were 50 years ago.
"These people do not take into
account that a much larger per-
centage of students of school age
are now in school than there were
50 years ago," Prof. Trow declared.
Population Increase
"Therefore, while the percen-
tage of students taking physics,

population of the country has
doubled."
Prof. Trow pointed out students
with less ability cannot drop out
of school at the ages of 12 or 13
as they could at the beginning of
the century because there is no
occupational outlet for them.
Lnited Appeal
He attributed the large drop out
50 years ago to narrow school
programs with a limited academic
appeal. "Today more effort has
been made to adapt the curricu-
lum to the abilities of the stu-
dents and to improve the methods
of teaching these courses," he said.
Modern education stresses both
the development of better teach-
ing methods and the importance
of course contents, Prof. Trow as-
serted. It also includes the "3 R's"
but recognizes the ineffectiveness1
of rigid training in traditional
disciplines in many instances.
"Our goal has been to meet the
demands of young people and of
society and to aid each pupil to
become what he is capable of be-
coming," he asserted.
Teaching Requirements
A member of the University
faculty for 30 years, Prof. Trow
noted teaching requirements have
been raised in the hope more
highly educated persons would
find subjects appealing and could
better adapt them to the needs
and interests of the students.
"Requirements for a B.A., Mas-
ters degree, or a teaching certifi-
cate discourages those with less
ability from entering the teach-
ing profession," he said.
Superior students have created
a problem for modern education,
Prof. Trow declared, because there
is no sure criterion to decide
whether they should be promoted
rapidly to higher grades or kept
within their own ages group and
encouraged to concentrate in the
areas of their special competence.
He noted most superior students
usually participate in extracurric-
ular activities and have a satis-
factory type of education.
Olson To Attend
Psychology Talk
Dean Willard C. Olson of the
University's school of education
will attend the 4th Inter-American
Congress of Psychology at the Uni-
versity of Puerto Rico, Dec. 26-30.
He will present a paper on
"Generalizations in Human Devel-
opment That Transcend Cultures."

World Needs
Fresh Beliefs,
Writer Says
By SHERRY WATERMAN
The free world must develop a,
philosophy of life which can com-
pete with communism on a spirit-
ual level, Robert Ahier, United,
Press correspondent, told Univer-
sity students yesterday.
America, as the leader of the
West has created a material goal
for the free world, he declared, and
one day will find that "having one
more car" is not the answer.
Speaking on "What the Church-
es in France and Europe Are Do-
ing To Combat Communism,"
Ahier said that a philosophy of life
in the free world is needed encom-
passing the material and social
developments of our modern so-
ciety. America, he continued, is
the only one who can give this
philosophy to the world.
Christianity in Western Europe,
Ahier declared, is desperately try-
ing to find a solution to the social
problems of society. He pointed to
movements for the rehabilitation
and housing of the poor, help for
the workers, mission churches in
the mining districts, and youth
movements.
The same fight is going on inside
the iron curtain, Ahier declared.
Visser't Hooft, Secretary Gen-
eral of the World Council of
Churches, has stated, he said, that
individual Christians are very
much in the fight and that next
Jan. the head of the Greek Ortho-
dox Church in Moscow may come
to Paris to investigate the possibil-
ity of the entry of the whole
church into the World Council of
Churches.
Writer to Talk

fellowship on which he spent three

ous national systems of education,
particularly that of tht Soviet
Union.
