proceeding on a workmanlike time-
The dinner at the "little white
house" climaxed a day in which the
three leaders presumably met for-
mally for a third time.
Final Discussion
Under conference procedure, the
foreign secretaries pass problems on
to the Big Three for final decision as
soon as they reach some generalized
There was speculation that the
president was stressing the necessity
of a quick victory in the Pacific, argu-
ing that the sooner Japan falls the
sooner the United States can aid in
the stabilization of European econ-
omy and the reconstruction of shat-
tered industries.
Meeting Regularly
It was officially announced that the
three leaders are meeting regularly
with their agenda prepared each
morning at 11 o'clock by the foreign
secretaries. Thus the burden of the
preliminary work falls upon Secre-
tary of State James F. Byrnes, For-
eign Commissar Vyacheslav Molotov,
and.Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden.
These three held their first ses-
sion Monday, with Byrnes presiding
under a system of daily rotation of
the chairmanship.
The top-ranking diplomats of the
three nations turned out for tonight's
state dinner, but Eden did not at-

Prof. Francis Curtis Discusses
Shifting Emphasts in Education

er ectic -z .. M04 ern Golt


"Basic emphasis of secondary edu-
cation has undergone a fundamental
change in the last four years and is
now aimed at training for one voca-
tion-the vocation of being an effec-
tive member of the armed forces,"
Prof. Francis D. Curtis said yester-
day in a lecture on "Shifting Empha-
sis in Education."
Speaking as guest lecturer on the
School of Education "Three 0'-
Clock Lecture Series," Prof Curtis
stated that "The influence of war
is still strongly apparent incour
schools, and some of the changes
it brought about are likely to per-
Among the postwar emphases like-
ly to differ more or less markedly
from those of the pre-war period,
Prof. Curtis said, will be training in
pre-flight aeronautics in which im-
portance of flying from the stand-
point of the average citizen is em-
phasized.' In social science, he ex-
plained, the major trend will prob-
ably be toward developing attitudes
of internationalism.
"More practical knowledge of di-
sease and health, both physical
and mental, are almost certain, to
be disseminated through many
courses," Prof. Curtis stated.
"There is certain to be an enor-
mous expansion of adult education
which will be defined to include in-
dividuals of any age who wish to
study outside of regular school
hours," he asserted.
"Interest in Latin, French, and

German seems likely to wane, and in
its place there will probably be an in-
creased interest in Spanish and per-
haps, in other languages rarely or
never taught in secondary schools
before the war," Prof. Curtis added.

One group of 415 sailors battling
a blaze in the Wilson River area nar-
rowly escaped death when, fanned
by a wind, fire whipped toward them
rapidly. They threw themselves on-
to the ground and then cleared a.
path to safety with extinguishers.

The fire crossed a Southern Pacific
Freight Line, and railroad crews
rushed out in an attempt to protect

Burning through rugged moun-

was roaring toward Tillamook, coast-
al blimp station 20 miles away.

"The decision to establish the Gen-
eral Hospital on the Continent as
close to combat troops as possible
was a bold one. The selection of your
unit for such amission was wise and
fortunate choice because your unit
has performed its mission in an out-
standing manner," the letter to Col.
Maddock, commander of the unit,
"Despite many obstacles encoun-
tered your hospital was set up, and
our sick and wounded military per-
sonnel received the type of medical
care that many believed impossible
to furnish," it continued. "Few Gen-
eral Hospitals have foundtthemselves
under enemy fire equal to that ex-
perienced by your unit during the
seige of Leige by robot bombs. You
did not let this form of Nazi terror
interfere with the performance of
your mission."
Devotion to Duty
"You and your officers and enlist-
ed men by their devotion to duty ac-
complished great things and I ask
that you tell them of my unbounded
admiration and heartfelt thanks for
their cooperation a n d excellent

Author of Pamphlets
Mr. Marquard is the author of sev-
-eral pamphlets which have been dis-
tributed to union members for the
purpose of eliminating racial and re-
ligious discrimination.
He has emphasized that discrimi-
nation and prejudice can be elimi-
nated if unions will follow this pro-
gram; increase local union democ-
racy, form an interracial or anti-
discrimination committee in each lo-
cal union, make known and enforce
the union's policy, insist upon a
fair hiring policy, insist upon a fair
policy in upgrading and promotion.
Union Discipline
Enforce union discipline, preserve
equal seniority rights, improve liv-
ing conditions, make room for fair
play, examine the public schools, per-
petually educate and publicize.
