The last weekend of the Summer Session has come, gone and been
mulled over with mingled emotions, and now with about three more days
of summer school left, all good "stoonts" are
putting their minds to work. And let that be a v
lesson to them. K _
Friday night seemed like a good night to
go out of town for a lot of people, with Detroit:
and its environs 'the most likely place. Kay
Steiner and Howard Burr barrelled all the way
out to Westwood to hear Friend Heidt and his -
swooning music, and Fee Menefee and Bob
Wurster went to Eastwood where Artie Shaw - "
was playing. Peg Becker and Paul French,
yearning for a boat ride, left Detroit Friday and
steamed over to Bob-Lo and back.

A superior A2 hamburger jernt harbored some smooth campus numbers
late Friday night. Hunched around the counter on stools were John McFate,
Bob Mueller, Gw en Lemon, Jack Pedigo, Dorothy Houlle and Jim McCollum.

unidentified but lovely young lady the other night,

the Repertory Players' Tenth Anniversary Season. And,
this is not an adv., a tremendously successful season it was too. If you don't

WERE WE GUINEA PIGS? By the
Class of 1938, University High
School, The Ohio State University
Press-303 pp.-Henry Holt and
Reviewed by Eda Lou Walton
(From The New York Herald-
This book by the members of the
Class of 1938 of the University High
School of Ohio State University is
the story, told by the students them-
selves, of six years of experimental
schooling. It was written instead of
the usual "Yearbook," in which stu-
dents designate each other as "the
best dressed," the "brightest," "pret-
tiest." The 55 members of the class,
as an editorial board, worked out
the plan for their own book. Tenta-
tive plans were submitted to Henry
Holt and, on the basis of these, the
publishers signed a contract. Why
not? Today we are interested in re-
lating school life to the community
life and in all educational ideas
which at least seem to proceed from
the students themselves. The Class
of 1938 was a full-fledged example of
a group of students who had directed
themselves and their studies from the'
time they were in the seventh grade.
These students are sincerely en-
thusiastic about their progressive
school on the university campus. They
wish to answer the criticisms made
of progressive education as they have
known it. Therefore they show first
that they are neither a group of gen-
iuses nor of morons, that they come
from families of average incomes and
typical middle class standards, that
their parents are rather more conser-
vative than progressive. They then
analyze for us their teachers and
their backgrounds. These teachers
seem to have good educations and
to accept the values of progressive
education. The students are well
aware that such teachers are clever in
directing them to think their way
through any given problem. They do
not believe, however, that the teach-
ers forced them to plan their work.
In the seventh grade.the students
undertook first to plan their school
room. The furniture, the color of the
walls, the lighting--everything was
in their hands, and they succeeded,
they believe, in making it their home.
Books had to be selected for the li-
brary. A housewarming led the stu-
dents into planning for the home ec-
onomics department in general. So-
cial studies soon became necessary in
order that they know markets, sani-
tation, town management as a whole.
Money and Its fluctuations in value,
the prices of things and the reasons
for their lowering and rising caused
the class to study economics, history
and labor movements, They realized
that even as their home was related
to the life of the town, the life of the
town was related to theteconomic de-
velopment of the United States.
Science became important to these
students too, as a direct part of their
lives. Their English classes were
connected with their studies in home
-economics at first. Gradually, how-
ever, the students found that litera-
ture pictured life and the list of their
reading proves that they read more
than the usual high school student
Moreover, they read from modern as
well as from classical literature be-
cause they wanted to know their own
world. Nor was their reading all fic-
tion. As their interests broadened
they read psychology, zoology, books
on social science. They wrote com-
positions on subjects that interested
them. Some of their papers are print-
ed here and they are convincingly
good. The specific study of language
they undertook as a tool of expres-
sion and of understanding.

and painting came into their course

GENEVA-Eleven rules to help
newspaper readers everywhere de-
tect and defeat propaganda, especial-
ly on world affairs, are laid down in
the latest report of the International
Consultative Group for Peace and
Disarmament, which has headquar-
ters in .the Palais Wilson here. The
subject of the report is "Press Propa-
ganda and International Relations."
The rules follow:
"Resist the tendency to take state-
ments in print ,as true by subjecting
eveything read consciously to the test
of common sense. So many things
in the papers can be seen, on the face
of it, to be distorted when they are
considered in the wider context of
facts already known and substantiat-
"Resist strenuously, therefore, the
common habit of merely picking up
newspapers to glance at them in un-
critical mood. This news tasting is a
dangerous form of 'dope'!
"Remember that there is no such
thing as 100 per cent objectivity; and
that, therefore, everything is written
with a 'slant' of some kind-big or
"Always note the place and source
of the news or views. Learn to know
the nature and characteristics not
only of the editorial policy of the
papers you read but of the major
agencies (Domei, Tass, Deutsches
Nachrichtenburo, Stefani, Havas,
Reuter, Associated Press, United
Press, etc.), whose telegrams appear
(all but the last two) to reflect, more
or less, the views of governments. In
this way, discounting the 'slant' be-

only perforce through brevity. Re-
member that the man who writes the
'news story' does not write the head-
lines. There is sometimes great dis-
