Education, He Says
Changes in high school curriculum
Will be in the direction of democracy
as opposed to autocratic control, in
the opinion of Prof. Edgar G. John-
ston, of the education school, who
spoke y e s t e r d a y on "Impending
Changes in the High School Cur-
riculum." At present, he declared,
we ee the struggle of directly op-
posing forces in the political and eco-
nomi fields. The schools of tomor-
roW will reflect the outcome of this
our changes in this field were
cited by Professor Johnston yester-
day. They were a new concept of
curriculum itself, less emphasis on
loIts of subject matter and more
upon the pursuit of significant edu-
cational experiences by the pupil, at-
tempt to provide exp.eriences appro-
prlpte to all the pupils of the school,
arnd acceptance pf guidance as a defi-
hite responsibility of the school.
School Has Social Core
"It would be futile," he asserted,
"to attempt to outline in detail the
types of activity which will com-
prise this curriculum of the future.
It is safe to predict that three phases
of human activity will receive much
more emphasis than that accorded
in the traditional school of today.
The experiences of the school will
revolve around a social core.
"The school of the future must
aim at uriderstanding of the com-
plicated social forces which deter-
mine trehds in modern life and co-
operation based o mutual considera-
tion and respect among citizens in
a community and among the nations
of the world. Above all it will em-
phasize .the inevitable truth that re-
sponsibility and privilege go hand in
Professor Johnston pointed out
that the school will offer large op-
portunities for developing an appre-
ciation of our cultural heritage and
for stimulating creative activity. The
curriculum will emphasize an under-
standing of arts--music, painting,
sculpture, poetry, architecture and
the drama-and an appreciation of
their s u p r e m e manifestations as
among the valued possessions of the
race. In addition the curriculum will
recognize that capacity for finding
an outlet in some form of creative
activity is much more widely dis-
tributed among individuals than
itost pedple believe,
Preparation for Family Life
"In the third place," he concluded,
"the school of the future will accept
miuch more fully its responsibility of
preparing pupils for worthy home
ifembership. Accepted as one of the
cardinal principles of education, this
dbjective has had little actual influ-
ehce on school procedure. The school
df the future must consider the pupil
definitely as a member of a family
and as a future parent. It cannot
neglect the problems involved in the
rklationships of men and women and
the intricate responsibiliites of fam-
ily life. Preparatoin for a serious and
responsible attitude toward sex re-
lationships and definite attention to
the problem of child care should
iark the high school of the future,"

Joe "Big Rabbit" Connell, 35, who,
police said, saw in the imprisonment
of Al Capone an opportunity to ex-
tend a small neighborhood beer busi-

He was killed outright by several
men in an automobile who fired on

him as he stood in front of his
saloon. .Connell, police said, had
undertaken to sell beer of his own
brew to other speakeasy proprietors
at $30 a barrel, $25 less than the
price reputedly charged by Capone.

(Associated Press Correspondent)
SEVILLE, Spain, Aug. 11.-The
conquest of Seville by Gen. Jose San
Jurjo, chief of Spain's shortlived re-
bellion, was brief but dramatic.
. I witnessed the proceedings in
front of the city hall, having wormed
my way into the closed town in a
private automobile.
'irst a section of the army medical
corps, a section of the civil guards,
and another body of troops from the
Ninth Infantry regiment were formed
before the city hall a few minutes
after neon by the general. He lined
them up in a solid column.
Then, before the huge crowd of
Seville citizens who had gathered, he
read solemnly the following procla-
"I, Jose San Jurjo, general in the
Spanish army, constitute myself cap-
tain-general of Andalusia and order
all previous dispositions concerning
the public order superseded. I also
declare the present local authorities
w i t h o u t jurisdiction. Long live
Immediately afterward, San Jurjo's
forces scattered and cut the tele-
phone and telegraph wires, cutting
the city off from communications.
Maj. Delgado and two officers went
to the civil governor's office at the
head of a column of troops and took
prisoner Gov. Valera Valverde and
Chief of Police Ramos.
Meanwhile, Commander Sanchez
Rubio arrested Mayor La Vendera
and seven councilmen who refused
to obey the orders of the rebels. All
local officials were imprisoned in the
local barracks.
Gen. San Jurjo named the Marquis
of Sauceda, a lieutenant-colonel of
artillery, governor of Seville. The
new governor closed the headquar-
ters of all labor unions immediately,
and when the laborers attempted to
walk out on strike, they were ordered
back to work by the rebel troops.
Gen. San Jurjo then issued a num-
ber of proclamations in which he de-
clared his movement was "purely

Sky Scientists Aim to Outreach
Piecard in Stratosphere Probe

WASHINGTON, Aug. 11. - (/?) -
Even as Prof. Auguste Piccard pre-
pared forhis second ascent into.the
stratosphere, scientists over the world
planned a general attack on the sky
mysteries ,,of the sphreical "shells"
that surround the earth. *
Hope to "Outreach" Piccard
They hoped to "outreach" him, for
they knew that, valuable as his scien-
tific contributions might be, his bal-
loon could penetrate hardly to the
border of the region where the real
mysteries lie-25 or 30 miles above
the earth and on beyond to the re-
gion where it is believed that all
traces of atmosphere fade out and
real "empty space" begins.
The stratosphere tiself-or at least
the few miles of it into which a bal-
loon like Piccard's can penetrate-
already has been well explored by
small balloons carrying instruments
that make automatic records of tem-
perature, pressure and humidity.
"Air Shells" Reflect Radio
Scientists now are planning to ex-
plore the higher levels of the atmos-
phere, where there are "shells" of air
that reflect radio waves back to the
earth, protect it from the dangerous
short ultra-violet rays, and may be
the birthplace of the little-under-
stood cosmic rays.
They will do their exploring with
radio beams that travel to great
heights and return in a fraction of
a second, balloons that send back
automatic radio reports of condi-
tions, and rockets that will carry in-
struments higher than any balloon
can go.
Intensities of cosmic rays are being
measured at widely separated points
at high altitudes. Several airplanes
already have been designed in Europe
to fly at speeds of 250 to 500 miles
an hour in the stratosphere where
air resistance is at a minimum.
Ultra-Violet Rays Blanketed
Scientists wish to know more about
the protective air blanket without
which the full force of ultra-violet
light would reach the earth and
make life as we know it impossible.
It probably lies about 30 miles high.
If there were no shell of electrical-
ly-conducting air, known as the Ken-
nelly-Heaviside layer, radio waves
would fly off into space and broad-
casting would be impossible. The

layer, constantly varying in height
from 60 to 200 miles, "bends" radio
waves back to the earth, enabling
them to circle the globe in a series
of "bounces."
Air above the earth grows steadily
colder until the stratosphere is
reached, where the temperature stays
permanently at about 70 below zero
Fahrenheit, but beyond, at a height
of 25 to 30 miles there is believed to
be a region hotter even than the
Hot Layer Is "Radiator"
The "hot layer," scientists believe,
is a region rich in ozone, which ab-
sorbs heat from the sun and from
the earth, becoming very warm in
the process, and then reradiates it
into surrounding space. Beyond this,
the atmosphere grows colder again,
until empty space is reached.
The upper air regions have little
or no effect on weather at the earth's
surface, in the opinion of weather
bureau scientists. The circulation of
air, cause of most "weather," is con-
fined to only a few miles above the
earth, they point out.
John Gilbert's Fourth
Bride Is Virginia Bruce
HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 11.-()-The
film cameras were still grinding on
the studio lot at 5:45 p. m. Wednes-
day. Before one of them stood Vir-
ginia Brdce, an actress, portraying
the part of a crippled trader's daugh-
ter in a picture of African life. She
was in rags and her face was stained.
John Gilbert walked onto the set
and interrupted the scene.
"We're going to be married at 6
o'clock," he calmly announced.
"O, John," Miss Bruce began.
"Six o'clock. My bungalow. Be
In this manner did Gilbert, the
screen's "great lover," set the stage
for his wedding to Miss Bruce. And
Miss Bruce was there in 15 minutes,
all washed and dressed in bridal ap-
parel, establishing some sort of a
record for speed, if what the press
agents said was true.
The marriage was Gilbert's fourth,
his divorce from his third wife, Ina
Claire, actress, having become final
last Saturday.

Lardis to Investigate
Cub Gambling Charges
CHICAGO, Aug. 11.-(P)-A spe-
ial dispatch to the Chicago Daily
News. from Pittsburgh today said
that Kenesaw Mountain Landis, base-
ball commissioner, had opened an in-
vestigation of charges that several
members of the Chicago Cubs, in-
cluding Guy Bush, pitcher, had been
gambling on the horses during the
managerial regime of Rogers Horns-
Commissioner Landis, the dispatch
said, went to Pitstburgh today to
open the inquiry as the Cubs arrived
for their first place battle with the
He refused to discuss the investi-
gation, the dispatch added, but told
reporters to "draw your own con-
The News quoted Landis as saying
before he departed for Pittsburgh
"Gambling isn't like drunkenness.
If it's a drunkard you have to deal
with you can give him a shower and
an aspirin and send him out on the
field and he will play ball for you,
or at least try.
"But when you have a player out
there on the field wondering, during
a crucial moment of the ball game,
whether Raggedy Pants or some
other nag is going to run first or
second the situation becomes serious.
"It is a thing that I, and the ex-
ecutives of every ball club in both
circuits, want to camp out."
