Schools impede Children's
Creativeness, Walcott Says.
(Continued from Page 1)
All too often schools discourage
and obliterate children's creative
eagerness or the "activity that
springs from the instinct for ex-
pansion," Prof. Fred G. Walcott,

of the education school, declared
Speaking on "Creative Teach-
ing and Human Expansion," at
the University High School audi-
torium, Prof. Walcott said that
practically all unspoiled children
are normally creative. "Unspoiled"
children are those unhampered by
meaningless labor imposed by
teachers, he explained.
"If the school could build a new
education that would utilize and
augment this strong natural cur-
rent, they could not only free our
youth but infinitely extend our
cultural gain," Prof. Walcott de-
clared. There would be no sac-
rifice of the fundamentals. In
fact, it is in the midst of such
purposeful activity that the fun-
damentals are obtained and prac-
ticed, he added.
One of education's strongest
tendencies has been a dependence
on formal discipline, based upon
a faith in performance of hard
work for its own sake, Prof. Wal-
cott charged. "This is essentially
authoritarian in principle and di-
rectly opposed to democratic prin-
ciples of human equality.
"One of the basic principles of
democracy is the law of human
expansion as exemplified by the
desires of every human being," he
said. Creative activity includes
every activity that a person en-
gages in from an inner urge, such
as organizing a string band, im-
proving a back yard or decorating
a kitchen cupboard, he explained.
Yesterday The Daily inadvert-
ently said that E. J. Soop had been
appointed Director of the Univer-

ARRESTED IN CAPITOL-Pvt. Paul G. Shelby (right), capitol
policeman, stands with a man at the capitol after he was arrested
in the Senate wing. Edward F. McGinnis, Senate sergeant at
arms, said the man identified himself as Clifton R. Spires, 39, of
Augusta, Ga. Shelby and another officer said they searched him
and found a .25 caliber automatic. The arrest was made about
five minutes after President Truman left the capitol.
Curator To Attend Unsealing
Of Robert Lincoln's Records
AND CAMERA SHOP

The opening of Robert T. Lin-
coln's papers tomorrow by and
about his president-father will be
attended by Colton Storm, acting
director and curator of manu-
scripts for the Clements Library.
"The opening of the papers is a
gamble as to whether they will
be 'historically invaluable," Storm
said before his departure for
Sealed 21 Years
The collection was given to the
Library of Congress by Robert
Lincoln with the understanding
that they would remain sealed
until 21 years after his death. To-
morrow ends the stipuated time.
Since John G. Nicolay and John
Hay completed their biography of
Lincoln in 1890, few people have
seen the papers, Storm explained.
Expect New Facts
"If the answers to most of the
problems about Lincoln's life had
been in the collection, Nicolay and
Hay ought to have found them,"
Storm said. "On the other hand,
there will be undoubtedly many
new facts about Lincoln brought
to light by the opening of the
papers. This is especially true of
Lincoln's family life and of Mrs.
Lincoln's troubles. Unless Robert
Lincoln destroyed the documents,
the story of Mrs. Lincoln's tragic
later years should be fully told."
Films for Teachers
Five sound films on "How to
Teach" will be given their pre-
miere showing at 7:30 p.m. Mon-
day at Rackham Amphitheatre.
Each of the twenty-minute films
takes up specific' teaching prob-
lems or school situations and dem-
onstrates their solutions by teach-
er and pupil.
placid declaration that "fair ac-
tion was taken."
Only later did I learn from Sen-
ator Ferguson (R-Mich.) that
there was a positive Republican
objection to the amendment not
connected with their drive to re-
duce expenditures. The Senator
was in a committee'meeting at the
time of the debate but was oppos-
ed to the amendment because "the
FTC is not doing anything to pre-
vent the growth of monopolies
now and is at present not prose-
cuting a single case."
The bargain and compromise
tactics were used successfully by
the Democrats later the same af-
ternoon. The Senate committee
had restored all but $13,972,220
of a Veterans Administration ap-
propriation. As the measure came
up for discussion Senator Reed
(D-R.L) obtained a quorom call,
offered an amendment increasing
the Senate figure by $100,000,000,
and proceeded to read page after
page of a speech which included
letters from the VA in support
of his proposal. His colleague,
Senator Holland (D-Fla.) then
took up the fight for the restora-
tion of the budget figure as a com-
promise between the two extremes.
After an appropriate amount of
dickering, with Holland acting as
the conciliator, Reed and the Re-
publicans agreed to accept the
lesser figure which restored the
appropriation to the original bud-
These two incidents are not
spectacular but they do point up
the framework of political con-
sciousness within which our leg-
islation is shaped and the extent
to which political maneuvering de-
termines the laws which affect our
citizens. In such an environment
one senses that an honest objec-
tive evaluation of an issue is dif-
ficult if not altogether impossible.
