The y reported appointment stirred
wide interest on Capitol Hill. Some
Senators, asking that their names
not be used, asserted that the pos-
tion would keep McNutt in the pub-
lic eye between now and 1940 and
thus might benefit him politically.
On the other hand, it was said, it
probably would be impossible for the
Indianian, after accepting the newv
post, to make an independent race
for the Presidential nomination if
the President did not faver his can-
Some legislators said one effect of
the appointment might be to obtain
the support of McNutt followers for
any candidate the Administration
might back for the 1940 Presidential
There generally were predictions
that McNutt would make a capable
administration, with Johnson ex-
pressing confidence that "he will do
an excellent job."

Speaker Cites
Professor Beaumont Tells
Hitory Of American
Ignoring the individual and the
concept of service to the community
are the chief faults of the present day
neo-scholastic school of education as
led by its chief priest, President Rob-
ert M. Hutchens of the University of
Chicago, Prof. Henry Beaumont of
the University of Kentucky said in a
lecture here yesterday.
The Hutchens school stresses in-
tellectual development before the ad-
justment of the individual, over-
looks individual differences, is based
upon the naive phenomena of trans-
fer of training and gets around the
idea of service to the community,
Professor Beaumont stated.
Tracing the history of educational
philosophy, he demonstrated the
classical tradition of Plato and Aris-
totle who emphasized the parallel de-
velopment of the mind and the body.
This was followed by the medieval or
scholastic period when only intellect-
ual development was stressed.
All decision on what was worthy
to be taught came from a central
authority. The remnants of this are
still seen in Germany where the party
dictates the subject matter and its
presentation; in Italy where the state
has control; and Russia the head of
the government dominates education,
according to Professor Beaumont.
America has developed the demo-
cratic tradition of education, the re-
turn to the classical ideas of develop-
ment of both the mind and the body
but with the additional value of mak-
ing it available to all who have the
equipment to make use of it. Its dis-
tinguishing point is its tolerance as
well as its recognition of individual
differences and abilities, he continued'
The base of this tradition is a sys-
tem of school electives which make
room for the varying aims and abili-
ties of all. If America is going to con-
tinue to make its unique contributions
to education, we must continue to
develop the techniques of analyzing
and understanding special interests
and abilities; we must make the cur-
riculum even more flexible in order to
adjust it to each individual student
and not to groups of students; and we
must place far greater emphasis on
the balance of the aspects of the in-
dividual with emphasis on the classi-
cal ideal of a well rounded personal-
ity, Professor Beaumont concluded.
