A new code of ethics for teachers
was drafted by the teacher-mem-
bers of the National Education As-
sociation at the conference con-
cluded at Atlanta last week. The
salient tenets of the code are: tha
the schoolroom is not the propel
theater for religious, political, 0]
personal propaganda, that th
teacher should not tutor pupils ir
his class for pay, and that the
teacher should insist upon a salar
scale suitable to his place in so-
Such a code has been the neec
of the teaching profession for some
time, although the members of the
profession have in the past for th
most part instinctively obeyed cer-
tain unwritten laws which amount-
ed in effect to the three points set
out above. However, too much em-
phasis cannot be placed on the
necessity for the observance of
these principles, and the fact that
a national society of teachers has
written out and approved them
makes their recognition a matter
for the decision of everyone in the
There can be no question that
the schoolroom is no place for
propaganda of any sort. President
Hoover showed his wisdom recently
when he tabooed the carrying on
of anything of the sort under gov-
ernment authority. The student
populations of our schools are made
up of an hetereogenous assemblage
of individuals of all races, religious
and classes; to impose upon these
individuals any sort of political or
religious belief which their par-
ents do not indorse or approve
would be to eliminate the possibil-
ities of personal liberty from the
class-room, to permit the mental
dominatign of the individual, and
to insure perfect uniformity in

Divorce, companionate marriage,
