But All Others In
(By Associated Press)
AMSTERDAM, August 7.-Men and
women swimmers from the United
States today made a much better
showing than their comrades in the
track and field division could boast
at this stage of the big athletic car-
nival last week.
Thomas Blankerburg, Oakland,
California, was eliminated in the
semi-final of the 200 meter brest-
stroke but all the other Americans
advanced. As a result of Blankel-
burg'sdefeat the United States will
not be represented in the finals of the
200 meter breaststroke.
George Kogac of New York, Walter
Laufer of Chicago, and Paul Wyatt
of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, won
their heat in the 100 meter breast-
stroke. Kogac set the new
world's record of 1 minute 9 4-5 sec-

Raymopd Ruddy, young New York
star, finished second to Borg's sen-

TO GIVE LECTURE

is the title of a lecture to be given
at 4:15 o'clock tomorrow in room 231
Angell hall by Rev. Frank Hartley,
pastor of the Dixboro Methodist
church and veteran of the British ar-
my. The lecture is one of a series
given in commemoration of the cen-
tenary of Tolstoy, the great Russian
novelist and humanitarian.
The discussion tomorrow is expect-

Chief Objective Is To Insure Each
Individual Opportunity To
"The chief objective of American
education is to insure to each indi-
vidual 'his opportunity of making the
most of himself up to the limit of his
capacity," said Frank D. Boynton,,
superintendent, of schools at Ithaca,
New York, in his address "What's
Wrong with American Education,"
delivered before 200 members and
guests of the Men's and Women's
Educational clubs at their annual
Summer Session banquet held at the
Union last night.
Toastmaster James B. Edmondson,
of the School of Education, introduced
the speaker as a "man with Western
ideals and an Eastern atmosphere."

Education Points To Truth
Superintendent Boynton opened his
talk with the statement that "educa-
tion offers the only avenue for the
advancement of civilization, through
the discovery of new truths." In de-
fending the high school he said,
"College professors have surveyed us,
motivated us, standardized us, corel-
lated us, jeopardized us, and then
quarrelled with the result."
"It is our educational system that
has kept the United States American.
One-third of our population was born
in Europe or Asia or are the children
of such parents. In spite of state-
ments to the contrary the public
school today is Christian. You
teachers should not apologize for
your profession. You have a great
The European criticism that we
have accomplished nothing was vig-
orously attacked by Superintendent
Boynton. "They say we lack culture.
Perhaps we do. But since our foun-
dation we have hewed out of a forest
inhabited by wild beasts and wlder
men an area large enough to feed the
combined population of England, Hol-
land, Belgium, Denmark, and France,
and our people are today in better
economic condition than in those
countries. We have an educational
system that has taken the wooden
shoes off our peasants, if I may call
them that, and put them in the best
living conditions of any country."
"If we shad squeezed Henry Ford's
education into four water-tight com-
partments, he would have come out
an engineer, but the world would have
gone afoot, instead of riding in au-
tomobiles," said the speaker after
lauding the proposed University Col-
lege, saying it would do more to de-
velop genius ,
"Civilization, the struggle of man
up from savagery, is marked by white
collar jobs," concluded Superintend-
ent Boynton, as he showed the value
