The development of talking pic-

a Id . McCl;ky, who spoke yester-

"The development of talking mo-
io pictures will soon reach the

pic 1r1. aidio is already extensive-
ly\s d in both elementary and sec-
oniary school. The development of
tclevision is in the offing. Already
television programs are being broad-
case," he said.
Professor McClusky asserted that
it is not too speculative to contem-
plate the probable collection of whole
courses of study, curricula, and li-
braries of visual aid materials, mo-
Ln pi-ture, talking and silent, cov-
:;ng:evry detail and cranny of the

had information to the effect that
powerful financial interests connect-
ed with the motion picture industry
,re already at work on a series of
educational devices, with the col-
laboration of various experts, which
will create nothing short of a revolu-
tion n the technique of teaching.
These developments are certain to
affect the work of the school and the
function of the teacher, he believes.
Opens Creative Field
"Do all of these developments
mean that the ,school will turn out
to 'be an elaborately equipped fac-"
ory with a few master technicians
to turn out the essential and basic
materials, while a few specialized
filing clerks keep it in order between
classes, while the teacher as we now
know him will be quietly shuffled off
the scene?
"The inevitable technical advances
outside of the classroom, when adapt-
ed to the work of the school, and
the new devices recently developed
within the present system will not
supplant the teacher and will not
make his work unnecessary," he

Dr. Frank Bachman, of the Pea-.
body Teachers college, told joint

Baker to Stage
Marionette Play
Wisconsin Man to Offer
Puppet Presentation of
"Tom Sawyer'
Everett B. Baker, University of
Wisconsin student, will present his
marionette show at 11 o'clock today
in the University High School audi-
toribm. The performance is being
sponsored by the Summer Session.
"Tom Sawyer," a five-act play
adapted for puppets, will be shown
this morning.
Baker's marionettes have been held
by Prof. Varnum, in charge of the
applied arts course at the University
of Wisconsin, to equal those of Tony
Sarg. A. H. Edgerton, director. of
vocational guidance at Wisconsin,
said: "Mr. Baker, who possesses an
unusual combination of artistic and
mechanical ability, has developed a
puppet show technique about which
students and adults are decidedly
enthusiastic. Those of us who have
seen one or more of his masterful
achievements believe that his uitir-
ing efforts have caused him to ap-
proach the Tony Sarg standard of
production. Both in the nature of
the plays selected, and in the quality
of the details executed, Mr. Bak.
has attained sufficiently high quality
so that any agency may be assured
of the enthusiastic acclaim of the
Baker, an undergraduate at Wis-
consin, has worked his way through
school in part by means of his pup-

tion. We are muddling through,"
he said.
The fallacy of "a curriculum bui'-
around the interests of the child"
was pointed out by Dr. Bachman
who also stressed the fact that the
child must have certain things im-
pressed upon him for the .sake of
the social or'der such as right of,
property. Homogeneous grouping was
attacked by the educator.
The system of departmentalized
education and the all-year school
were also clasped in the category of
the fads. A survey, he said, wasl
made in Arkansas in which it was
found that children did not learn
any more by the departmentalized
method and the knowledge was not
related to other knowledge.
In conclusion, Dr. Bachman said
that it is not true that American
education is an experiment because
"that involves setting up objectives
4nd checking results, that is, a
scientific procedure."

In* Trade- Pact
PARIS, Aug. 2. --(P)-American
business interests face the loss of
millions of dollars worth of trade
with France as a result of a treaty
just signed by France and Belgium.
The new Franco-Belgian pact,
which was signed Monday and be-
comes effective next Monday, waives
for Belgium the import tax of 4 per
cent on semi-finished goods on cer-
tain classes and the 6 per cent tax
on finished goods. These classifica-
tions include copper, lead, zinc, hides,
skins, office equipment and many
other articles.
Protests were made not only by
Americans, but by German, British,
Japanese, Mexican and Chilean in-
terests, but there seemed to be noth-
ing that could be done, for the treaty
is to last for eight months.
Even French producers,nespecially
of the metals included in the list,
protested against the new arrange-
