terday on the final**performance of

doliers," stage designer Alexander

first in the country to be devoted ex-
clusively to stage craft work. Its
summer program will bye offered with
the Manhattan Theatre Colony at
Agunquit, Me. In the course of 20
years Wyckoff has designed and exe-
cuted 800 sets while his wife has com-
pleted more than 3,500 costumes.

sans who do special kinds of art work.

Appointments Bureau Rushed

Guidance An Educational Fad,
Dr. W illiam C. Trow Charges

Averaging 10 telegrams and 15
phone calls per day, the Bureau of
Appointements and Occupational In-
formation is being literally rushed
off its feet securing teaching jobs for
[students and graduates registered
with the office.
Requests are primarily for elemen-
tary education teachers, commercial
education teachers, coaches, shop'
work instructors, home economics
teachers and teaching engineers,
technical workers such as chemists,
accountants, and teachers of business
Chief concern of the Bureau at
this time is those persons who are
attempting to tegister for jobs now,
and applicants who fail to keep their
records up to date.
The Bureau has lost much valuable
(prestige, leadership, control, etc.),
(b) pupil-school, in grades, classes,
clubs (rivalry, competition, leader-
ship, etc.), and (c) pupil-home, (in
family, neighborhood, gangs, econom-
ic status, etc:). /'
3. Person to symbol: pupil response
to the cultural heritage of words,
numbers, etc.
Every teacher could " profitably
make a study of some one of these
situations over a period of years,
viewing it in connection with the
needed social adjustments of chil-
dren, and the aspects of the school,
organization that could promote this
phase of social learning.
Faculty committees could advan-
tageously study the problem of the
incorporation in the school organiza-
tion of the available situations that
would promote social growth.
If such a study should eventuate in
effective action, guidance would not
be a gadget to be added to an obsol-
escent school structure, but an aspect
of the functioning school program.
If the school took for one of its
major objectives improvement in the
field of social learning, the insane
asylums and penitentiaries might
have fewer of its alumni, and we
might develop a socially competent

time, and spent needless sums
searching for individuals who pre-
viously applied for positions, but who
failed to keep the office informed of
their whereabouts, and their present
Four men, for instance, who had
applied for positions with the Bureau
were called long distance.several hun-
dred miles away, but when finally
located, it was found that they had
secured jobs in early June. Had they
informed the Bureau of their employ-
ment when they received it, the calls
would have been unnecessary, and
other applicants would not have had
'to wait the extra time.
An instance was also reported of a
woman speech teacher who refused to
supply a photograph with her appli-
cation because she "didn't take a
good picture." (!) (Prospective em-
ployers will not even consider appli-
cations without a photograph at-
Stressing the importance of keep-
ing records up to date, it was pointed
out that 100 records had been shown
to prospective employers in one day,
and those persons whose records are
lacking in detail will not be consid-
Last year the Bureau placed 211
applicants in college and university
alone, and this year is expected to
yield just as good a record. But peo-
ple who do not leave their correct ad-
dresses or who do not complete the
record data cannot expect to secure
jobs. One case was cited where the
office searched for a man in his
home town, that being their only ad-
dress information, when he was in
Ann Arbor. Time and money were
wasted simply because of carelessness
on that man's part.
And failure to notify the Bureau of
jobs received is.unfair to those who
are on the waiting list, for they must
remain idle while the previous appli-
cants are being sought after.

Standards, Department of Commerce,

Tigers, Yanks Split Two
As DiMag Sprains Ankle
DETROIT, Aug. 19.-(R)-The New
York Yankees came to grief today,
not so much by dividing a double-
header with the Detroit Tigers, as in
losing their great batting and field-
ing star, Joe DiMaggio, with a
sprained ankle.
The Tigers scored eight runs in an
unrestrained second inning in the
first game to win 12 to 3 and then
were knocked back into their humble
place as the Yanks captured the
nightcap 8 to 3.

"Guidance," charged Dr. William C.
Trow in his talk yesterday before a
group of educators in the University
High School, "seems at present to"
be the current educational fad."
"In spite of the ignorance of the
psychological theories and techniques
involved, on the part of many engaged
in this work, guidance like other edu-
cational fads past and present has
many points in its favor. But it can
be effective only if it I' conceived
as a function of the social institution
and not alone of designated individ-
Dr. Trow explained that he be-
lieved that one of the important func-
tions of the school that guidance
emphasized was that dealing with

the opportunities for social learning.
"Social psychology has for its field
the relationship of an idividual," he
stated, "to other individuals.
"As such relationships are studied,
developmentally, within the insti-
tution of the school, a body of knowl-
edge will gradually be built up that
will make social learning more effec-
tive. Some of the social relationships
in educational practice, together with
samplings of behavior involved, may
be roughly classified as follows:
1. Person to person. This would in-
clude (a) teacher-pupil relationships
(suggestion, direction, attitudes, etc.)
and (b) pupil-pupil\ (friendship, ag-
gression, etc.)
-2. Person to group. The following
would be included: (a) teacher-school

inch guns. Turret arrangement is similar to that on the Battleship Bismarck, sunk by the British. This pic-
