General adoption of the philoso-
phy that secondary education should
be open to all children of adolescent
age, improved relations between col-
leges and secondary schools, and a
trend in curricula away from for-
eign languages and mathematics
were some of the important findings
of the National Survey of Secon-
dary Education reported by Dean
J. B. Edmonson, of the educational
school, -before the Phi Kappa Delta
luncheon yesterday.
The Survey was sponsored by the
Federal office of educatio nand car-

nent educators, including Dean Ed-

MustProvide Varied Types
"The public has discoveredsthat
teachers and administrators are not
in agreement regarding the philos-
ophy of American secondary educa-
tion," said Dean Edmonson. "The
older philosophy assumes that sec-
ondary education is a privilege to
which only those of proved capacity
are entitled. In contrast with this
oider philosophy there is the newer
point of view that has found expres-
sion in many new developments,
some of which are resented by the
advocates of the older opinion. The
newer philosophy implies that the
secondary school must provide types
of education as varied as may be
demanded by the interests of the
pupils. The findings of the survey
show that the newer philosophy is
gradually dominating the objectives
and practices of secondary educa-
tion.

Forest Land
Well Handled.
Work of Roosevelt Is
L a u e d; Purchased
Four Million Acres
The national forest land is the
most efficiently handled natural -re-
source in the country today, Dean
Samuel T. Dana, dean of the School
of Forestry and Conservation, said
yesterday in the second of a series
of lectures sponsored by the Univer-
sity for the Summer Sesison stu-
dents.
By 1870, it was evident that our
forest domain was rapidly being dis-
sipated, and the future supply look-
ed dubious, Dean Dana, said.
A law was passed in 1901 which
permitted the President to set aside
forest reserves, and in the same
month President Harrison created
the Yellowstone National park .it
was not untW Cleveland's admini-
tration, however, that laws were put
into effect providing for the protec-
tion of the forest reserves.

Visit-Many Schools
"The survey reveals certain wide-
spread tendencies to change the cur-
riculum of the secondary schools.
Two dominant shifts are revealed.
One of these is away from foreign
languages and 'mathematics, the
subjects favored by requirements
for entrance to college; the other is
an increasing emphasis on instruc-
tion in the social studies and physi-
cal education.
"The survey will also make a con-
tribution on the problem of college
and high school relations. It is
common knowledge that the public
is critical of our secondary schools
because of the numerous criticisms
made of them by the colleges. The
survey will show that certain col-
leges have adopted measures which
have greatly improved the articula-
tion between the secondary schools
and higher institutions. It is my
prediction that these findings will
end the foolish, wasteful and unin-
telligent bickering relative to college
a dmissiojis."
In telling of the work, Dean Ed-
monson stated that it was undoubt-
edly the most significant study of,
education ever' undertaken in the
United States. The staff visited 550
schools in 41 states. Congress ap-
propriated $225,000 for the three-
year project.

Six Leading Powers Will

LAUSANNE, June 28.- (A.P.) -
Every effort to bring about a Fran-
co-German reparations agreement
failed today and the international
statesmen who gathered here in a
spirit of hope two weeks ago pre-
pared to give the Lausanne Confer-
ence decent burial.
Unless there is an unforseen-al-
most miraculous-change of front
overnight, the six leading powers
will meet tomorrow to prepare for
adjournment and to arrange for the
usual gesture of appointing a com-
mittee of experts to solve the prob-
lems they have been unable to solve.
Meet in Fall
In the fall another attempt will
be made to compose the reparations
conflict at another international
conference.
Prime Minister Ramsay MacDon-
ald, of Great Britain, made almost
superhuman effort to bring about
an agreement between Premier Ed-
ouard Herriot, of France, who in-
sisted that reparations must not be
cancelled, and Chancellor Franz von
Papen, of Germany, who insisted
that they must.
Mr. MacDonald received M. Her-
riott and Herr von Papen at a joint
conference this afternoon and an-
other get together was arranged for
later in the evening,

NEW YORK, June 8. (AP)-The

posed to putting future games on
the air, but may defer to any deci-
sion made by the National Colleg-

done the most for the national for-
est, continued Dean Dana. Credit
for the national forest system is due
largely to Roosevelt. In 1911 more
than 160,000,000 acres of forest land
was owned by the government, and
a bill was passed in that year to
purchase 4,000,000 acres more.
Fire is one of the greatest enem-
ies of the forest, Dean Dana stated,
Over 50 per cent of the fires are
caused by lightning, while those re-
sulting from smoking are second.
Every year brings an increasing
number of people to the national
forests for recreational purposes,
said Dean Dana, In 1930, 32,000,000
people visited the forests for recre-
ation, he said.

Over Jouett Souse
All Tests Carried

Wets Clair Victory as
Repeal Plank Goes to
Resolutions Committee
CHICAGO, June 28.- (AP) -
Three times a Rooseveltian smashed
the opposition in today's intense ses-
sion of the Democratic convention,
naming Senator Walsh of Montana
to the permanent chairmanship, set-
tling in its own way the two delega-
tions' content, and in general hur-
tling on with enthusiasm in a su-
preme effort to. capture the presi-
dential nomination.
But their majorities in every in-
stance were more than a 100 short
of the 770 that will be required to
nominate, the attempt to allow lee-
way simple majority nomination
having been given up by all hands.
Ending the six-hour meeting, the,
convention specifically adopted the
hundred-year-old rule.
Roosevelt Forces Parade
Welcomed by an uproaious Roose-
veltian procession that twisted in,
both directions through the con-
gested isles and with cheers that
drowned some few shouts of deri-
sion, Senator Walsh was given a
626 to 528 margin.
In the ever too hasty, trying roll
call, the Rooseveltian block seated-
the Senator Huey Long delegation
from Louisiana by 638% to 514%
and the Minnesota delegation lead
by a count of 6581/2 to 492 .
Vote Is Disorderly
Although they have been expect-
ing confidence all along, partisans
of the New York governor held their
breath just the same during the
fierce and at times disorderly roll
call in the Lousana contest. Not
until each state and territory had
been called and a return of those
which had been held up momen-
tarily was the outcome certain.
James A. Farley, Roosevelt man-
ager, ejaculated immediately "that
was our weakest vote," as he joined
the cheers. But it proved not to be,
a lighter lead coming for Walsh.
Resolutions Committee
Hears Repeal Demand
CHICAGO, June 28.-(A.P.)-The
Roosevelt - controlled Resolutions
Committee stood in the way of the
prohibition repeal drive tonight, but
leaders in the movement, pointing
for the showdown on the Demo-
cratic Convention floor tomorrow,
claimed victory.
Taking up the wet and dry dis-
pute tonight, a majority of the
platform-making committee- looked
favorably on the proposal brought
forward by the advocates of Gov.
Roosevelt for submission of a re-
peal amendment to State conven-
tions,
Smith is Leader
The prohibition issue is blowing
about the Convention with force
that promises a gale, Alfred E.
Smith appears the actual leader of
the attempt to pledge the Party to
repeal and immediate modification
of the Volstead Act.
Senator Walsh, of Massachusetts,
is leading the contest in the Reso-
lutions Committee for the move-
ment. He presented a plank today
agreed to by 20 of the 53 members
of the committee representing states
and territories of 566 delegates-12
less than a majority.
The text of the plank follows:
"We favor the repeal of the Eigh-
teenth Amendment,
"We demand that the Congress
immediately propose such repeal to
truly representative conventions in
the states called to act solely on
that proposal.
"We urge that the Democratic
Party co-operate in the enactment of

such measures by the several states
as will actually promote temperance,
effectively prevent the return of the
saloon and bring the liquor traffic
into the open under complete super-
vision and control by the states.
"We demand that the Federal
Govetnment effectively exercise its

Disarmnaeiut Seeni as Requisite
To Europeai Delt Gancellationl

Definite assurance of some meas-
ure of Euronean disarmament and
of economic and nolitical co-opera-
tion between the nations of conti-
nental Europe might conceivably be
the prerequisite to war-debt, cancel-
lation by the United States, in the
azinion of Prof. Charles F. Remer,
of the economics department,
"This might very possibly be the
idea," Professor Remer stated, "that
he American delegation at Lao-
anne has been A ttemtiit to pre-
ent. The interesting thing about
the entire conference i. the move to

to the circuinstances," Professor
Remer added.
Although there has been some talk
of an alliance or "rapprochement"
between France and Germany, this
has been denied by the French
premier. Professor Remer ridiculed
the possibility of such an agree-
ment. "They might promise mu-
tually to be good," he said.
The entire question before the
conference at Lausanne, he said, re-
solves itself into an acceptance or
refuaal of the existing fact that no
more payments can come from Ger-
many -at least in the near future.

By EDGAR H. ECKERT
Professors may warn against "get-
ting behind in your work," but Dr.
Warren E. Forsythe, director of the
Health Service prescribes "g o 1 f
rather than midnight oil."
Don't overwork merely because
of the short time allowed in the
Summer Session for the completion
of assignments, Dr. Forsythe urges.
Remember, he said, the University is
as vitally concerned with your gen-
eral health as it is with your aca-
demic achievement.
Dr. Forsythe said that golf is a
fine prescription for tired students
who want to relieve themselves from
the rigors of academic routine. (Dr.
Forsythe is not subsidized by the
University golf course). "I do not
wish to be quoted as opposed to the
attainment of cultural achievement
in various courses of study," he said,
"but I do know that there is a limit
to the physical capacity of the best
of physiques."
No essential deviation from the
regular schedule of clinical and dis-
pensary activity at the Health Serv-

Pet.
