ATTITUDES AND APTITUDES
Chief among the difficulties of
present-dcareducatorsesvel eprob-n
the schools, or the relation of non-
knowledge products to the forma-
tion of school programs. Little by
little, the impcrtance of the scien-
tific study and treatment of char-
acter has come to be recognized.
The fact that It was only recently
that the administrators and the
philosophers of education found It
possible to work in unison inl the
promotion of their common pur-
pose has undoubtedly had some-
thing to do with the increasing re-
spect being paid the individual-
istic and the emotional side of
schooling. The result has been an
attempt to create character In the
child in a more or less mechanical
way.
For example, a method used In
a number of places is that of in-
stilling desirable traits into chil-
dren at the rate of three or four
a rde. Quey:Do we have a com-
plete, well-rounded character in
,the product, or do we have an in-
dividual who contains a list of
good qualities which he applies to
those situations which involve
them.? Obviously the latter seems
more probable.
If we recognize the definition
which Georges Leygues once gave
,f education, we must admit that
non-knowledge products are quite
possibly as important, if not more
important, than the acquisition of
knowledges and skills. Leygues de-
fined education as "a training
which enables one to think well, to
judge well, and to govern oneself."
This progressive French educator
then went further to say, "These
are worth more than to know
much". *Accepting this viewpoint,
,we find ourselves favoring the In-
troduction, not~ of more special-
ized methods and schools, but of
more general types of activity;
more emphasis on atmosphere, at-
titude, and emotional response,
than on aptitudes and cold mental
Even in our primary schools, a
juvenile study of ethics and phil-
osophies might be inaugurated,
and certainly in the schools of
-more advanced character. Most
important of all to the profession,
a revision of requirements for
teachers would involve making per-
sonality the most important pos-
session of candidates.
Gradually the training of char-
acter in the way we have outlined
Is taking shape: systems of Indiv-
idual and group responsibility, of
individualization, of increased free-
dom have been expressions of the
new feeling. However, our curric-
ula have remained almost change-
less, the worship of subject mat-
ter has continued, and, worst of
all, much the same attitude in dis-
seminating this mass of material
Jaas remained. The idea can best
be voiced in the words of J. Tan-
nery: "Our teaching easily be-
comes ornamental. We excuse
ourselves for its superfluousness by
harping upon the training of the I
pind to which everything else
must be sacrificed, and we apply
lhe fine epithet "disinterested" o

FABLE
Once upon a time in the pretty
hamlet of Centertownx, Ohio, the
hero of our little tale was in love
with the same charming young I
heroine of the story as was the
villian (of this romance).
The petite blonde (our heroine)
was the toast of Broadway, though
she had been bred in Centerville.
The hero was going to marry the
heroineifhe inertd emlin
pearly gate.
However, the inheritance of the
paternal pocketings depended up-
on one thing. The father han an
old fur coat which he was simply
cr-azy about. And he said in his
will that if at the end of one year,
the coat was in as good condition
as it was when he died, the son
could have his fortune.
Now the villian heard about this,
and having an uncle who ran a
r FleCircus, he hired a cast fu
HOWEVER, the hero had been
a very kindly chap even from his
earlier days, and the moths were
his friends. When the moths
heard about it being HIS fur coat,
they just cried and cried (everyone
knows how a moth balls). So af-
ter that, the moths just sat around
on the buttons.

I say again, "I killed, I really

THE CRIMINAL CODE
Bradfordhquaintarreliioit hu-
bled all New York, Martin Flavin's
The Criminal Code, which opens in
the Mendelssohn Theatre Wednes-
day night, was practically conced-
ed the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
It met one of the main stipula-
tions of that awa'rd more com-
pletely than any previous winner.
Flavin's play represents the the-
atre In one of its most wholesome
aspects: the inquiring sociological
spirit characteristic of Galsworhy's
major work in drama.
The play had its origin in Fla-
yin's genluine contact with prison
life. He lived for some time in a
prison town, breath-ed it~s atmo-
sphere, learned its problems, lis-
tened to its stories. The Criminal
Code, written hastily in four
weeks, was the result. It is a shat-
terig duramawon the frailties eof
vour and penetration that only
genineexperience could impart.
In production it is said to be keen
enough to stir the most firmly
rooted complacence about the sit-
uation it produces dramatically.
Its reception in New York was
Brooks Atkinson'ths is night re-
view in the Times is characteristic.
He says: "Flavin's play is so ear-
nest, so forthright, so grim and un-
relentinghand yso unsparinl eab
feet by the force it sets in motion."
The story itself is ideal for dra-
ma: simple and swift, yet complex
and stimulating in its implications.

code sentences him to ten years.
After five years of his sentence,

takes an interest in the young man
whom he had willingly prosecuted,
most of the play's problems are
fuse: th question of sovng tahe
jail sentences, the wisdom of treat-
ing all criminals alike etc. In the
youth's story are revealed all the
diseases of prison: the degeneration
of morale, sex-starvation, general
paralysis of the human spirit.
An unfortunate circumstance
makes the boy prisoner a witness
of a murder. The main conflict
then rests in the warden's efforts
to make the boy tell: the warden
eager to save the boy from per-
manent criminality and the boy in-
sisting on his allegiance to the
criminal code "never to squeal".
The conflict is resolved swiftly In
a powerful climax.
This play, still a current Broad-
way success, has not been released
for amateur production. It is
available to the Repertory Players'
through special permission of the
author who is a friend of Prof.
Wallace who is directing the pro-
duction and taking the part of the
warden. It promises to be one of
