Schoolhouse for Sale A PRELIMINARY slalomont from the Arkansas Education association, opening itn convention at Little Rock Thui'Hday, pleads for federal appropriations to the common schools—at the same time demanding retention of local and state control of the schools. This newspaper was the first daily paper in Arkansas to advocate enactment of a state sales tax for the schools, and we have earnestly defended every hill that we believed would help the cause of free public education. Hut we are unalterably opposed to tying up the local school system with a distant federal capital. We have always opposed the proposition to create a new federal cabinet post for education, which some educators desire; and we are opposed to making the local schools of America permanently dependent on federal funds. Tin 1 idea that federal money can be accepted without accountability to the federal government for choice of books, curriculum, teach- I.TS. and other details of manage* infill, is entirely Utopian. Whoever grants money also ex- erci.M'S control. Hducators leach axioms--hut seldom understand their application. If education wore merely a question of m;i.ss production---the finding of so much money to pay so many teachers to instruct so many pupils, without regard to who did the teaching or what matters they tauiiht then it would be entirely pc-rmi£.sihlc to link up the local school syst"m with the federal political machine. That such a link does occur wlu-ri'vi.T federal funds are used, is perfectly patent in the- matter of public highways The state obtains large grants of money from Washington" for the building of highways. But everything, from the route and materials and cost, down to the engineer and ll::- contractor, must bear the approval i,l the U. S. Bureau of Road.s or there's no highway. Vff can ponml this u-hcn we are dealing with inanimate things like highways and emus things that ; ri- meaMirrvl in term.s of dollars. But the 1 person who applies tbi.s notion to education is simply one of the bookish crowd who believe America can be biUc-printed all in one piece. If this i.s one nation in the complete sense of the word, with the same songs, the same traditions, the same heroes, on every mountain-top and in every valley, then I am an indolent observer and have remained all these years a most ignorant person. Ami yet no one is ignite .so ig- noi an I as the crowd who know nothing but books. Council Provides New Electric Liiie Extension for Rocky Mound—Aid Also Given Public Library i r-Vy H.

The iirlic'lcs are bused on .scientific |mi>ors read before Cn- midimi titul Amcriciin scientists at a special meeting In Toronto. By BRUCE CATTON NEA Kcrvlcc Staff Correspondent (Copyright, 191)7, NEA Service, Inc.) TORONTO, Out.—The Dionne quintuplets have never been spanked and they never will be spanked. Nevertheless, they arc subject to strict discipline—and, us a result, arc pretty obedient and well-behaved young ladies. Since they were a year old the quints have been taught that they have to 'obey—OH ELSE. More than that:, they have learned that they can get what they want only by obeying, and that if they refuse to follow the routine laid down for them they jjj- variiihly have to take the consequences. These "consequences" arc never so very terrible. The worst that happens to a disobedient quint is a spell of isolation in a separate room. But Localise this system has worked so well on the quints, it might be worth the altrntion of parents who arc wondering how on earth they can ever get Junior to mind. Nobody worried about discipline when (hi' quints were tiny, of course. Evi-ryone was too busy with the all- import.'int job of keening them alive. Bui as the sisters passed the crisis, the £i:iirdifin.s faced the problem of in- Mailing the proper routine of child- training. After much study, it was decided to inaugurate the system in use at St. George's School for Child Study, in loronlo. Wanted Happy Medium That was dune more than two years ; go. What happened thereafter is now revealed in a paper written by Dr. W. E. Blat/., director of St. George's School and D. A. Millichamp, assistant director. The object of the training program was not to develop children who never disobey, but to reach a happy balance between obedience and disobedience. As the spycluilugists put it, "we believe an individual should be non- fninpli.-int • but he should keep his non-compliance within the limits of .social behavior." In other words, if a quint refuses to wash her hands before dinner, she doesn't gel punished or argued with— .'he .simply doesn't get dinner until she washes. If she prefers going without dinner, that's her privilege. No one suffer." but herself. On the other hand, however, if she cruiiic.s a disturbance during the story hour she is at once removed to the isolation room, or "dog house"; for this Kind of disobedience disturbs the whole group. Hence she is disciplined for the second dink of disobedience but not for the first. That i.s why you will notice some odd things when you study the discipline records of the different quints. AmiLtie a Non-Conformist Annette, for instance, breaks the law the most—or, as the psychologists quaintly put H, shows the largest number of non-compliance incidents. And yet Annette is disciplined the least of all the sisters. Marie ranks third in the number of non-compliance incidents—but draws down the most discipline. A good part of Marie's trouble is due to the tact that she is still the baby of the group; 41 per cent of her non-com- plmncc is simply crying. She offers ;:ct'.ial physical resistance to authority Cotton NEW ORLEANS-^i-Ncw Orleans December cotton opened Thursday at 7.69 and closed at 7.73.

These pictures show a sample incident.

Below—Emilie takes a •.ipill while rolling a bnll; but such tumbles, as the psychologists observed, don't bother the quints.

The charts record the quints' non-compliance behavior—which is what the psychologists cnll refusal to obey —and the frequency with which discipline is applied, with both records divided to show comparison between the first and rccond periods of the quints' lives. Note how misbehavior in the outdoor play period rose sharply at the cod of the first period, while discipline was relaxed; the second period shows a marked change. LITTLE ROCK — t/?'i — The slate council of education, governing body of the Arkansas Education association, adopted a resolution Thursday urging the appropriation of federal fumis to aid the common schools, with the reservation that control of the schools remain in the hands of local and state authorities.

Bedaux as his representative on his American tour despite American 'Federation of Labor criticism of Bedaux, the latter indicated Thursday. Bedaux said i na statement released through his press representative that he had talked with the duke over the telephone, and that the adbicated king is "looking forward with all the enthusiasm of a young man to his visit to the United States." The statement was issued shortly after William Green, president of the A.

Bedaux is the inventor of the industrial system which the A, F. of L's resolution characterized as the "stretch-out." . U. S. on Group to Arbitrate Orient Will Serve With Britain, Jap War BRUSSELS, Belgium.— :iVP) —The Brussels conference of 19 nations der cided Thursday to empower its subcommittee to offer ai dto Japan and China in effecting peace between the two nations. It was reliably indicated that the United States, Great Britain and Beligum will be on the committee. By the Associated Press The way was cleared partially Thursday for Japan .to open direct peace talks with China. Instead of re-inviting Japan to participate in the Brussels conference on methods of ending the Chinese-Japanese conflict, the leaders of the peace move decided to send Japan an appeal to start peace negotiations. This step, decided upon at a private meeting of leaders in the Belgian foreign office, is yet to be ratified by the full conference which is seeking to bring peace on the basis of the nine- power pact. Meanwhile, the conflicting armies were still locked in deadly conflict in China, a temporary stalemate apparently holding the opposing lines relatively sationary.
