Attacks Problem with the Definite
Purpose of Seeing That
the Class Learns
Drawing a contrast between per-
formance and learning, Prof. H. C.
Morrison of the University of Chi-
cago in speaking yesterday after-
noon in the School of Education's
week end conference, stated that
"the procedure is to attack the
problem with the definite purpose
of seeing that the class learns."
Dr. Morrison named three ele-
ments that are to be found in ev-
ery class. "First," he said, "there
are some members of the class al-
ready sufficiently well-grounded in
that subject. Second, in the mod-
erate sized class, there areusually
some individuals who haven't the
background for that unit. A pre-
test and a responsive administra-
tion would have organized a course
that would have met their needs.
The pretest period, as the third
element, orients the teacher, pre-
test and then teaching followed
by more tests. By teaching, I mean
not only direct teaching but also
directed study and the conduct of
According to Dr. Morrison, the
objective of testing should not ne-
cessarily be the written paper. The
real teacher does a lot of "sens-
ing" from keen observation of the
class attitude and conduct. The
critical part of this systematic pro-
cess hangs on the teaching, test-
ing, and reteaching notion. It is
the systematic adaptation to in-
dividual requirements in relation to
the specific situation in hand.
"The Organization of Material for
Teaching" was the topic of the
morning session led by Professor
Morrison. "Teachers," he said,
"must have objectives definitely in
view and then work until the pu-
pils get them. Education is the
evolution of personality. The child
learns by doing."
Education, he continued, is the
simple matter of acquisition of
learning, and as we pass on through
courses of study, we find many
things which will contribute to per-
sonality as it develops. Materials
represent racial learning.
Mastery of environment comes,
he said, through the addition of
the various factors and the learn-
ing product of each. When the
primary child learns to read, he
becomes a reading product. Edu-
cation, Dr. Morrison states, devel-
ops intelligent attitudes toward life
and the race or the evolving act of
living together at a maximum of
Declaring that there is a ten-
dency to mistake the methods
through which learning takes place,
Professor Morrison pointed out
that we learn from experience but
the powerful tendency is to mis-
take the experience from the learn-
ing. The teacher's mind, he said,
is centered on the experience; per-
sonality is not in the foreground.

Russian Expert Finds Difference
Between Teaching of Two
Great Schoos
"Bolshevism can not be overlook-
ed nor treated lightly by America
today,"' declared Prof. Clarence L.
Meader of the Russian literature
department in an address on "Tol-
stoy and His Relation to the Pres-
ent Russian Covernment," ls3t
Thursday in Natural Science au-
Although Bolshevism resembles
the teachings of Tolstoy in many
ways, Professor Meader believes
that if Tolstoy were living today he
would condemn the Russian gov-
ernment as a whole inasmuch as
his theories were based on the
teachings of Christ. Diametrically
oppose to this, the Soviet govern-
ment has practically adopted the
slogan, "Religion is the Bunk," and
conducts, Professor Meader said,
most of its activities on an anti-
religious basis.
Comparing Tolstoy's teachings
and Bolshevism Professor Meader
indicated that both were the same
in their scope-each wanting to
transform the world we live in.
Tolstop has written, he pointed out,
"of all human passions, the only
ones which can be realized are love
and self-renunciation." With this
in mind, Professor Meader con-
tinued, Tolstoy sought the abolition
of all private ownership, as does
Bolshevism today. In "The Slavery
of Our Times" Tolstoy writes: "Pro-
perty is the root of all evil," the
speaker showed. In addition he
pointed out that Tolstoy believed
that the only things which are tru-
ly man's own are his physical and
mental powers.
"Physical labor has come to be
defied," Professor Meader stated,
"today in the Soviet state as it was
by Tolstoy who wrote "Labor is the
fundamental law of life." Bolshe-
vism teaches that only he who
works shall eat."
