institutions and normal schools to
offer instruction to teachers. He is
former president of the International
Dancing Teachers Association.
Scope of Mr. Lovett's work is broad.
"I guess I teach every branch of
dancing but adagio," he asserts. Phys-
ical education departments of 32 col-
leges have featured his square danc-
ing classes. At the present time, with
a staff of 14 assistants, the master
gives instruction eight hours daily,
five days a week.
During a portion of the year he
travels south with Mr. Ford teaching
in the schools in that area for a
time. When in that region he gives
two demonstrations daily at the Ways
School in Georgia.
The classes given free to Summer
Session students each year, through
the courtesy of Henry Ford, take
place in the ballroom of the Michi-
gan League. Second meeting of the
present series was held from 7:30 to
9 p.m. yesterday, with over 200 in
attendance.

Get into the

Teachers Must Le
World Order, K
Stressing the responsibility of the
teacher in recreating an international
order after war, Prof. William H.
Kilpatrick of Teachers College, Col-
umbia, charged 2,000 educators at
the opening session of the confer-
ence Sunday with spreading the les-
son of a common moral responsibil-
ity.
It is the duty of the teacher, he
said, to proclaim the three moral con-
cepts necessary for a world of peace
-regard for others, justice or the
ethical equality of treatment and the
acceptance of responsibility for the
common good.
The burden must be borne by the
United States more than any other
nation. We must cultivate intimate
and friendly relationship on an ever
widening scale.
In the past, Prof. Kilpatrick
charged, this country has been neg-
ligent in carrying its share of inter-
national duty. He cited our relations
with the League of Nations, the way
in which we built the Panama Canal,
and certain commercial relations with
nations to the south.
It is proving a moral strain on the
individual nations to move from their
merely self-centered view of regard
only for themselves to the more ade-
quate view of cooperation for the
common good of all. "But the very
existence of a decent civilization de-
mands that we make this moral ad-
vance."
If we cannot be sure of interna-
tional law and order, Professor Kil-
patrick added, we shall have to re-
main armed and equipped at great
expense to be ready to repel any at-
tack that may at any time come.
