Organization To Be
Move In National
Says Carrothers


As the first move in organization
of a national study of standards and
guiding principles for the accrediting
of secondary schools, Dr. George E.
Carrothers, chairman of the Univer-
sity department of co-operation with
educational institutions and chair-
man of the investigating committee
appointed for the above purpose, has
announced a meeting of the com-
mittee Monday, July 3, at the Stev-
nes Hotel in Chicago.
The parent group behind the com-
mittee is the secondary commission
of the North Central Association of
Colleges and Secondary Schools.
This study was originally decided
upon after having been suggested by
the secondary commission, the asso-
ciation authorizing the appointment
of a committee of five members,
headed by Dr. Carrothers, to make
the investigation.
Other Associations Quizzed
In making plans for the study it
was considered worth while to dis-
cover what other regional associa-
tions were doing in this field and,
accordingly, correspondence was sent
to other sections of the nation. Re-
plies indicated that the idea was of
much interest to other associations,
as the southern group and the mid-
dle states group. In the latter case
it was learned that a similar study
had been contemplated there for
some time.
A conference was held with Dr.
George F. Zook, president of the Uni-
versity of Akron and chairman of
the committee making the study of
standards for colleges in the North
Central Association, and he ex-
pressed keen interest in the idea tnd
in the possibility of making it a na-
tioniiide stuldy. Dir. "Zook, recently
appointed national commissioner, of
educiation bIy resident Roosevelt,
said that he wll aid iAn furthering
the work by inviting representatives
of the 'regional associations to meet
with him sometime after the middle
of July in Washington.
Reorganization -Now Is Timely
Officials have stated that the pres-
ent seems to be an opportune time
for the beginning of such a study
because: (1) Accrediting standards
now being used by different associa-
tions have been put together in
pieces and need not only a rewriting
but a thorough restudy, (2) The Na-
tional Survey of Secondary Educa-
tion, containing much valuable data
in its reports, has just been com-
pleted, (3) The present crisis in edu-
cation calls for a reconsideration and
restudy of standards, and (4) The
committee making the study of the
standards used for accrediting col-
leges is just finishing its work. All
of these points are said by authori-
ties to. call for and to present aid
toward a general reconditioning of
the standards now in use for the ac-
crediting of the more than 2,500 sec-
ondary schools now on the member-
shii list of the North Central Asso-
Aiong those planning to attend
the coming meeting in Chicago will
be representatives from the entire
area the association includes. It
takes in the territory from Montana
and Arizona on the west to Ohio and
Michigan on the east. There will
also be present delegates from the
Southern Association, including all
the southern states, and from the
Middle States Association, which has
for its members all schools in states
on the Atlantic coast. Dr. Zook and
other nationally-renowned educators
are also expected to attend, it was
added .

The total amount of taxes levied
by the state, counties and cities of
Florida is $65,020,920. Of this
amount, says Meredith's survey re-
port, the. state levies $6,554,200 on
real estate and $1,302,310 on per-

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., June 30.
--A)-Old Mission lighthouse, after
more than a half century of service,
is being closed and the keeper and
his family are being moved else-
where. A gas buoy will be used in
place of the lighthouse. The old
Mission light is distinguished be-
cause it stood directly on the 45th
parallel, exactly half way between
the equator and the north pole.
Four-fifths of the area in Queens-
land, Australia, which was overrun
