Curriculum Change
Is Termed Radical
Too many extreme curriculum
changes are being advocated today,
which for practical reasons cannot be
carried out, Dr. Harlan C. Koch, as-
sistant director of the Bureau of Co-
operation with Educational Institu-
tions, told a group of educators yes-
terday in the auditorium of the'
University high school.
Speaking on "Proposals for a Pro-
gram of Instructional Improvement,"
he said that there should be an in-
termediate step in the curriculum
"We must do what we can in the
present framework of the school," Dr.
Koch stated.
He went on to point out the im-
portance of vitilizing the school cur-
riculum through actuality. "It is
necessary for the secondary school
student to be able to tie up academic
work with everyday life," he declared.

sex was confusing. Dr. Bradbury
was unable to account positively for
the masculine features but asserted
that medical literature records cases
of adrenal tumors which produce pre-
cocious development in boys and mas-
culine tendencies in girls.
Cases in which the tumor can be
removed always revert back to nor-
mal, he said, while there are also
rare instances in which tumors of
certain glands produce feminization
of the male.
Extreme cases of this nature re-

Max Eastman (above), left-wing
essaylist, 54-years-old, six feet 31/
inches tall and weighing 180
pounds, was one of the principals
in the "Literary battle" in a New
York publisher's office. Ernest
Hemingway was his adversary. Ed-
itor Maxwell Perkins, who wit-
nessed the affray, would not con-

"In fact, the roads were so bad
interstate commerce on a large scale
was impossible, but now some sta-
tisticians contend 90 per cent of our
commerce is interstate.
"Anybody can see that much of our
trade is carried on nationally without
regard for state lines; so why should
we not state the thing in so many
words, and proceed to have congress
regulate it?
"All we have to do is face the fact.
And, mind you, the Supreme Courtl
will face that fact!"
Those words were spoken quietly in
the senator's office a few months be-
fore the Supreme Court did just the
thing he said it was going to do. It
upheld the Wagner labor law, and
broadened its view of interstate com-
merce to do so.
For Small Towns
But don't get the idea that Hugo
Black is going to the Supreme Court
and trample down the rights of the
states and try to create an ogre of a
central government: No such thing,
if he carries out that pet idea.
He believes rural and small town
America should have the right to
determine how and when it shall keep
up with the commercial parade along
the national arteries.
The corner grocery and the barber
shop in Dothan, Ala., for instance,
should yield only to local public opin-
ion when it comesto wages and hours.
Consequently, all the liberal labor
legislation sponsored by the Alabama
leader has avoided laying a heavy
hand on small town America. He
says that's true of the 30-hour week
bill he failed to get through the sen-

fervescent and his tenacity never'
more apparent than when he rode the
wage and hour bill through the senate
hearings this summer.
The Alabama senator was com-
pletely lost in his task. He seldom
stopped to eat at meal time, but con-
stantly whipped away at the well-
nigh impossible task.
One day a photographer asked him
to pose and Black consented, but
went on working.
"Your hair-" began the photo-
grapher, proffering a comb.
"Oh, yes" rejoined the nearly bald
Black. 'My wife's been telling me
to get a hair-cut for a week."
And then with that twinkling eye,
and puckering dimple that disting-
uishes the Alabaman in the senate:
"Just goes to show a man ought to
do what his wife tells him to."
