The national safety showing
was the worst since 1941 and the
third worst in 20 years, the As-
sociated Press reported. A final
survey revealed that traffic deaths
took 306, drowning 192, fireworks

In the Ann Arbor area two of
the 192 drownings were reported.
They were Robert Pietruskewicz,

Traffic injuries in Washtenaw

the accident victims were resi-

In comment on 1948 traffic and
accident showing, Ned H. Dear-
born, president of the National
Safety Council said:
"The nation had ample warn-
ing of the highway hazards that
awaited holiday motorists. News-
papers and radio stations did their
level best to help authorities hold
down the death toll but once
again a shocking and tragic death
toll proves that the advice was
not generally heeded."

BETHESDA, Md., July 6--(/P)-
Newf angled education methods
may be okay for a guinea pig.
But a group of parents here in-
sist that if children are involved,
you still can't beat readin', writin'
and 'rithmetic.
About 40 of them from several
schools in this county (it's a sub-
urb of Washington, D.C.) have got
together to list 26 reasons why
they think modern schooling
misses the educational boat.

the best-selling novel by Sinclair
Lewis, will be shown at 8:30 p.m.

The film, which is the second
summer presentation by the Art
Cinema League, features Walter
Huston in the title role; Ruth
Chatterton, as his wife; Mary As-
tor and Paul Lukas, as acquain-
tances of the family.
Supporting players includeI
David Niven, Maria Ouspenskaya'
and John Payne. William Wyler
directed the production.
The story, which was adapted
for the screen by Sidney Howard,
recounts the events in a Continen-
tal tour made by Dodsworth, a re-
tired middle western motor mag-
net, and his family.
In Europe, Dodsworth's wife be-
comes enamoredswith an impov-
erished young American aristocrat
and demands a divorce. When she
learns that her lover's mother will
not permit him to marry a di-
vorced woman, she returns to her
husband. Dodsworth, meanwhile,
has met and fallen in love with an
American divorcee. Suddenly real-
izing his wife's selfishness, he re-
jects her and returns to the wom-
en he loves.

schools should exist for the pri-
mary purpose of training our chil-
dren in the essentials of knowl-
edge, namely reading, writing (not
printing or script), arithmetic,
spelling, language, phonics, Ameri-
can history, American geography,
and civics.
"We therefore resolve that the
present system of education which
is based on the experimental phil-

achieving, be discontinued imme-

"We therefore resolve that they
be so regarded; that they not be
treated as guinea pigs, behavior-
istic, psychiatric, personality, oi
social problems."
Mrs. Duncan H. Brooks, mother
of three and one of the leaders of
the group, told a reporter today
that if a parent poll could be tak-
en, she feels sure a majority woulk
agree with her.
"Many parents won't say any-
thing publicly," she said. "But
they call me and tell mc what thc,
think. They're afraid to hav
their names used for fear of re-
taliation on their children. Isn't
that pitiful?"
One Community
Although this movement is
strictly a one-community affair,
Mrs. Brooks said:
"From what I hear, parents al
over the country may feel pretty
much as we do."
Dr. Edwin W. Broome, Counh~
School Superintendent, declined
to comment until the objections
are a little more specific.
And so John H. Hiser, a thealre
owner, promptly supplied him with
one: He thinks there's too muc
use of notebooks, to be filled in by'
the youngsters, rather than text-
