Is Told Importance of
School Physician
(Special to The Daily)
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., June 29.-
The realization that education as a
living process must take into account
body, mind, nerves, emotions, social
self, and hereditary tendencies will
probably be the basis for the great-1
est educational progress in the1
twentieth century, Otto W. Haisley,
superintendent of schools in Ann
Arbor, Mich., said this afternoon in
an address before the health andl
physical education department ofr
the National Education association,
meeting here.
He told of the organization of the
public school health department in
Ann Arbor and of the work of the
school physician in Ann Arbor, who
was the fist in any city in Michi-

Prof. William H. Hobbs, one of
the world's foremost geologists and
head of the department here, will
lecture at 5 o'clock this afternoon
in Natural Science auditorium on
"Geology of Niagara Falls and Vi-
cinity." The lecture will be illustrat-
ed. On July 9 and 10 Professor
Hobbs will conduct a University ex-
cursion to the falls.

Seeks Wholesome Childhood
"With the employment of a full-
time school physician, we are direct-
ing our thought and our efforts to
the development of a more whole-
some childhood for the children of
Ann Arbor-a childhood which is
freer from the ravages of disease
and illness by reason of such pre-
cautions," he stated.
The definite program of the Ann
Arbor schools was outlined by Su-
perintendent Haisley as follows:
"1. Securing parental co-opera-
tion as regards early correction of
physical defects. 2. Devising a
health examination record possess-
ing the greatest health teaching pos-
sibilities to children, teachers and
parents. 3. Creating such environ-
ments for our children as will help
them normally and naturally to
seek health advice and health lit-
erature. 4. Developing an adequate
health history and health record
recording scheme. 5. Defining the
functions of the school doctor and
Pupil Attitude Is Barrier
"One of our serious problems," he
continued, "is integrating the school
health service with the high school
age and high school activities. The
type of organization itself and the
attitude of pupils of this age erect
barriers around which it is difficult
to wark."
One of the greatest possibilities
of the entire problem is that in
making of a health curriculum there
is a chance. offered to obtain co-
operation among the teachers of
various subjects and grades of a
sort which can be obtained in no
other way, the superintendent said.
"We need to discover for all teach-
ers a common denominator which
will enable them to get upon a com-
mon ground. There is too wide a
gap in the philosophy of the kinder-
garten teacher and the teacher of
twelfth grade Latin and mathe-
matics. All too frequently the spe-
cial music teacher speaks a lan-
guage which is difficult for the
junior h i g h school home-room
teacher to understand, and this
same special music teacher all too
often fails utterly in her efforts to
comprehend the aims which the ele-
mentary school principal has set us
as worthy goals of the elementary
schools. Her business is to teach
children to sing.
Affects Both Pupil and Teacher
"Not a health curriculum, but the
actual making of a health curricu-
lum by a group of teachers offers
more possibilities as an integrating
force than any other single activity
which I can name.
"In all departments, in all school
activities, in practically every school
situation, there is a health sphere
affecting both pupils and teacher.
In this very thing lie the possibilities
of the activity. It makes of every
teacher a health teacher. It em-
ploys a highly individualized pro-
cedure thus emphasizing a valuable
technique. It likewise emphasizes
problem approach and problem so-
lution. Last of all it emphasizes
education as a living and growing
Needs Mature Judgment
"Adjusting health education to
our new philosophy involves for
most of us curriculum construction.
Curriculum construction is loaded
with problems of integration which
shoot into every nook and crevice of
public school organization, cur-
riculum contest and procedure. In
the final analysis this integration is
synonymous with consistency in
thought and action and may be ob-

Tells How Certain Lands
Once Peopled Now Fail
to Support Population
Illustrating his lecture with many
photographs taken on a recent ex-
pedition to Guatemala, Prof. Harley
H. Bartlett, head of the botany de-
partment, told a Summer Session
audience yesterday that the great
question facing his department was
why certain lands, once densely
populated, now sustained no popu-
lation at all. His lecture on "Cen-
tral American Jungles" was the sec-
ond of the summer 5 o'clock lecture
"The Maya civilization developed
in two areas," Professor Bartlett
said, "the earlier in Guatemala and
the later in Yucatan. The Mayas
developed a calendar and a system
of hieroglyphic writing. Only six or
eight of their book manuscripts re-
main, however. A spanish bishop in
1500 seized all the manuscripts he
could lay his hands on and destroyed
them, thus doing irreparable dam-
"In this northeastern Guatemala
wilderness lie the ruins of the old-
est Maya civilization. It is now
dense jungle supporting no popula-
tion at all. Perhaps it is due to
climatic changes. To figure out
questions such as this, the Carnegie
expedition added zo-ologists and
botanists to its archaeological staff.
"For instance, if we could dis-
cover from what plants or combina-
tion of plants maize, or corn, came,
we could find the locality of the
beginning of American civilization.
Corn is a purely American plant, and
does not grow wild. The discovery
of where it was first cultivated would
furnish the solution to this problem."

Concrete Proposals for
Settlement of Repara-

LAUSANNE, June 29.-(AP)--Af-
ter the reparation conflict between
France and Germany had reached
its high point today with a forth-'
right demand by Chancellor Franz
von Papen that the Versailles Trea-
ty be revised to eliminate all dis-
criminations against Germany, there
was evidence of calmer counsels
and a possible eventual agreement.
The French, who were greatly
displeased by the declaration for
treaty revision, reported that the
German Chancellordmodified h i s
tone in subsequent discussions.
Pessimism Is Modified
There even was an unconfirmed
report that the Germans, who have
insisted reparations must be can-
celled, had agreed in principle to
the payment of at least something.
This development modified the
pessimism of last night when the
belief was general the Franco-Ger-
man conflict would force adjourn-

Concrete proposals to Germany
to settle the reparations issue were
being drafted tonight by a commit-
tee composed of the representatives
of six leading powers and headed
by Prime Minister Ramsay Mac-
Donald of Great Britain. The other
powers participating were France,
Germany, Italy, Belgium and Japan.

to the lessening of the tension was

He Learns About
Women For $22
James Foster, 215 South State
street, today is $22 poorer but much,
the wiser.
Yesterday he stepped into the Lin-
coln restaurant for his evening meal.
Finished, Mr. Foster arose, walked
out, and continued on his way,
knowing full well that he was no;
longer hungry. What he didn't
know was that $22 in halves, quar-
ters and nickels, which he had;
brought from the bank with him,
was still resting just below the7
counter of the restaurant.
Enter the culprit, in the shape of
the lady that's known to State street
habitues as "Jerry" (not as Lou).
She sits at Mr. Foster's vacated
place. She sees the money,and-
she takes it.
Chris Christie, employee of the
restaurant, remonstrated with her.
In fact, he took hold of her and at-
tempted to stop the flight, but
"Jerry," blonde, tough and highly
painted, shouted "Lemmego" at
Chris, and out into the street she
Chris followed and yelled for Pa-
trolman H. D. Suma, who unfortu-
nately was at the other end of
State street. Suma finally arrived
but the blonde flash, the money and
the scent of five-and-ten perfume
had disappeared.
