Quiet Town Of Marshall Is Home
Of School Of Education Workshop

At that time plans were talked over
concerning the particular problems
in which he or she was interested,
and on which they hoped to work
during the summer.
Later each person attending the
Workshop filled out a questionnaire.
First this questionnaire stated the
conditions under which a person
could be admitted. Then followed
such meaningful questions as: What
is my specific problem? Who are the
teachers whom I have visited at work
this year? What plans have I made
to share my Workshop experience
with other people in my community?
What books, magazines, articles or
other research materials have I re-
cently examined which shed some
light on this problem? What places
have I visited, other than schools,
in an attempt to work out a solution
to this problem?
Functions Of Inquiry
This inquiry has several functions:
first, it permits the teachers to eval-
uate their problem before they actu-
ally start on it; second, it permits
the director to evaluate; and third,
it forms a written record which at
the end of the season helps to reveal
the progress made toward solution
of the original problem.
The questionnaires form a part of
German Cinema
To Be Given Here
"The Cobbler of Koepenick," a Ger-
man film, will be shown by the Art
Cinema League at 8:15 p.m. Sunday,
in the Lecture Hall of the Rackham
The story of a cobbler who learned
Prussian militarism in prison and
used his knowledge to ,put over the
biggest hoax in history in order to
obtain a, passport, this film is an
authentic record of a true tale.

bert in the title role, the movie is
directed by Oswald with the scenario
by Zuckmayer. Dialogue is in Ger-
man with English titles appended.

the cumulative record of each per-
son. In addition, this cumulative
record contains other pertinent in-
formation, and the diary which each
teacher keeps to help to evaluate
each day's progress. It is of interest
that the staff members are not im-
mune-they too record in a diary of
their own.
In addition to staff meetings and
teacher meetings the community it-
self had been preared. Pupils, par-
ents and key people were contacted
or met to discuss plans. The super-
intendent of schools, Harley W.
Holmes, headed a committee that
enrolled the boys and girls in the
laboratory school.
Newness Still Felt
The newness of the first meeting
of the Shop as a group had not yet
worn off when committees covering
recreation, publicity, public relations,
and many others were already func-
tioning. As the need arose tempor-
ary committees were selected.
The members voted this year to
meet as a committee of the whole
to discuss any business that would
concern the whole Workshop. This
plan, while different from last year's,
has worked out well.
As mentioned before, there are con-
ducted in connection with the Work-
shop four demonstrational schools.
One on' high school level; one on
junior high; one on elementary, and
one rural.
Perhaps, on the particular day you
are visiting, a young girl of junior
high school age comes to Miss
Drenckhahn. "Miss Drenckhahn,"
she says, "we would like to invite
some guests for lunch this noon."
The director nods toward you and
says "Perhaps our guest, Miss
would like to come."
"Delighted," you respond. "Thank
you very much, my dea"
Unusual 'Poise
With unusual poise the child re-
plies, "You are welcome. I am from
the Junior High School group." Turn-
ing, she adds, "And thank you, Miss
With a reassuring 'pat from Miss
Drenckhahin the child departs.
"A charming child," you comment.
"Yes?" is the simple reply, but
the sparkle in ourshostess' eyes tell
us a great deal-that here is a per-
son who loves and understands chil-
About that time a small'man ap-
pears from nowhere, and before you
realize what has happened your pic-
ture has been snapped. The damage
done, you are introduced to Mr. Cut-
ting, ace photographer, also a stu-
dent in the Workshop.
"For our pictorial records," smiles
Miss Drenckhahn.
Later in the day you will see Mr.
Cutting snapping many other pic-
tures. You think back to the pic-
tures that first caught your eye in
the lobby and sense the value of Mr.
Cutting's work.

Frail Junkman Takes
City Hall Bronze Railing
"Where'd you get that?" a policeman
asked a frail-looking junkman he
saw carting a 600-pound chunk of
bronze railing along a streetatoday.
"Found it," said the man, "up
against a building back there."
The building was city hall.
Police charged the man--weight
120 pounds-with larceny and said he
leaded the railing on his truck single-

The student body at the University
this summer is in a disgusting state
of health.A
This is the verdict reached by the
health service which prepared for aj
summer of colds, sun stroke, heat ex-
haustion, sprained ankles, strange
maladies, any kind of ordinary sick-'
ness and "student complaint."'
There just isn't any business, said.
one doctor who has been sitting in
his office filing his nails for the past
weeks. We get a few visitors every
once in a while, but not enough to
make a doctor's life at all interesting.
On the basis of the 1940-41 report,
the health service was prepared for
a heavy seige, for in almost every de-
partment the sick calls had increased
measurably. But the summer session
seems impervious to all ills.
One, and only one department in
the Health Service is busy, and that
clinic is doing a land office business.
This is the allergy clinic, and accord-
ing to their figures, they are making
up for all the rest of the health de-
Average number of calls per day
ranges around 100, and appointments
must be made weeks in advance. Oth-
er reception rooms languish, and
gather dust, but allergy's is extended
out into the hall way.
In the allergy department, students
receive tests for preventing and cur-
ing allergies. And work during the

For Health ServicePhysicians

summer has been highly successful. A
great majority of the students who
come for tests are either given relief
or cured completely.
Since allergies are.- much more
easily cured when discovered and
treated in the early stages, students
are urged to come in for appoint-
ments at their earliest convenience.
Treatment started now can be carried
over into the regular session, or con-
tinued at home under proper super-
Members of the allergy clinic em-
phatically deny, however, that they
have been giving secret injections
to make their patients allergic to oth-
er health service departments. As
matter of fact, they say, they have
more than they can comfortably cope
with now.
But this does not discourage them.
As long as there are students who
"break out" when they eat certain
foods, or react strangely to dust,ani-
mals or a number of other stibstances,
the allergy clinic will be glad to
treat them.
Doctors jump at footsteps in the
other departments.
