Schorling Talks
On Social Math
In High School
Professor Believes New
Form Would Increase
Security Of U.S. Citizens
Discussing the growing need for
a new kind of social mathematics in
the high schools, Prof. Raleigh
Schorling in a lecture yesterday
stated that there is need for this
form of mathematics to increase the
citizen's security, to make him a
more intelligent reader, to improve
computation skill and to give the
sored by the School of Education, ex-
plained that social mathematics in-
creases the citizen's security by en-
abling him to get. the maximum se-
curity from a given income.
This phase of mathematics is im-
portant in insurance, taxation, in-
vestments, banking and simple ac-
In the past mathematics has failed
the citizen because it has been taught
at too early an age and because the
problems and the tools of mathe-
matics have been emphasized rather
than the social implications.
Social mathematics would increase
the intelligence of the citizen by
teaching the general concepts in
terms of which most quantitative
thinking is done, Professor Schor-
ling explained. Among these con-
cepts are the notions 'of ratio,
length,.area, percentage and statis-
tical graphing.
Computation presents a more dif-
ficult problem, for "it is not easy to
teach all of the children of all of
the people to deal effectively with
numerals of any kind.". Professor
Schorling added that a comprehen-
sive investigation of the 4lower half
of the senior high school students'
control of fundamental skills would
reveal a situation "truly alarming."
The fourth contribution of the
kind of mathematics proposed by
Professor Schorling would be to give
the pupil an insight into the place
of mathematics in modern life.
The number system is a very im-
portant social instrument, and makes
possible all the measurements in
science and industry. "In fact, our
number system represents the one
universal language of humanity,"
Professor Schorling concluded:

Life' Comes To Filibert Roth
-And Disrupts Work It Camp

(Special Daily Correspondent)
work was completely disrupted last
week at Camp Filibert Roth when,
for the first time, "Life" came to a
forestry summer camp. Chosen as
representing the collegiate field train-
ing centers for foresters, the Univer-
sity of Michigan's beautiful site on
Golden Lake, in the heart of the Up-
per Peninsula, provided an ideal set-
up for "Life" photographer F. W.
Arriving Sunday, Mr. Goro found
the Sunday evening "sing" a likely
subject for beginning his picture tak-
ing activities. And thus,- the first
pictures of foresters' training taken
for a national magazine were, fit-
tingly, scenes around a blazing camp-
fire in the woods beside the lake.
From campfires the scene shifted
to forest fires, later in the week, as
the boys treated Mr. Goro to a dem-
onstration of technique of forest fire
fighting. Chemical smoke from
smoke candles added a realistic touch
to the proceedings. Shovels, rakes,
hazel hoes, and back-pack pumps
were tools used to suppress the
Trips to a forest nursery, to a saw-
mill, to a L.S. Forest Service Ranger
Station, and to a Michigan State Con-
servation Department district head-
quarters, were among the unsched-
uled activities crowded into the
week's program. In addition, num-
erous regular features of camp work
were singled out for pictorial treat-
Even at mealtimes there was no
rest for the scurrying photographer.
Spotless, white tabletops, groaning
under the heavy fare provided to keep
the boys well-filled and happy, made
a memorable picure of a very im-
portant phase of camp life. No one
appeared to be camera-shy, as plates
we e emptied and reemptied with the
usual split-second timing.
Beards, which had proved a handi-
retion in. Modern C'ooin -

cap at weekend dances in nearby
wnto, were at a premium. Before
the end of the week, every fellow
with a picturesque growth of whis-
kers had been photographed, front
or profile, at least once. Beardless
"smoothies," who had found things
in their favor with the fair sex, looked
on eviously as their bewhiskered bud-
dies stole the show-for publication.
On Saturday night-when the boys
let off steam after a week's hard work
-countless flash bulbs flickered in
one of the Iron River "Cafes," as Mr.
Goro recorded the highlights of cam-
pers' highlife. Lusty harmonizing re-
laxed he group's members into pho-
togenic poses. Feminine angles for
dancing to music of the local band
were supplied by Iron River girls.
Following the departure of the
cameraman, everyone heaved a deep
sigh and prepared to resume working
as scheduled, without quite so many
trimmings. But first, many a sweet-
