SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTI, DECEMBER 16 1936 WANTS TEACHER OF NEWER TYPE Stoddard Would Banish Old Time "Tight Lipped and Tense" Sort. IOWA CITY," (#)_Dean George D. Stoddard of the University oi Iowa graduate college Wednesday urged the banishment of the old time "tight lipped and tense" school teacher who rules over her classroom with an iron hand. Writing on "Personality Problems of Teachers," for publishing by an educational periodical (Journal of Home Economics) . Dean Stoddard said "a teacher who is frustrated, overcriticized or underdeveloped on the emotional i side is likely to go towards the neurotic escape. She may make oi her school room a little world in •whiih she is master of everything and in which the children are there to do her bidding." He said that type of teacher created an -"atmosphere of ''constant tension" in the class room. He condemned the "teacher versus pupil" feeling aroused. Dean Stoddard outlined three rule* to improve the mental attitude: 1. Face reality. 2. Develop some special or unique usefulness. 3. Get some sort of a change at intervals, such as a new job or a summer of study in a different locality.

''We will try to make under this government a practical demonstration of the possibilities yet ahead of the so-called capitalistic system and hope theroby to see the social unrest: felt among our people greatly reduced, if not completely eliminated," he said. "We aspire to nothing humanly unattainable and we meant to have it." The United States has given great liberty to the commonwealth government during the 10 year transition period which is to precede independence for the insular domain the United States took from Spain in 1898.

The end of the commonwealth's first year found the government well organized, business booming, governmental finances in sound shape, a potential Filipino* army of 400,000 men in the embryo stage, and a general interest in expanding foreign trade. Under the expert guidance of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, former chief of staff of the U. S. army, young men at the rate of 40,000 annually are taking military training, an officers' training school has been opened and equipment for the army is rapidly taking form.- Plans have been prepared for a vast program of national development, including extensive reforestation, homesteading of idle lands and construction of dikes and other measures for flood control. President Quezon has made progress .cautiously,- however, keeping a constant, eye to the condition of the commonwealth's finances. Larger-Surplus Shown. The insular government operated during the first eight months of 1936 with a surplus, showing a substantial gain in surplus over the same period in 1935, according to the auditor general's report. Next to the forthcoming trade conference with the United States, j President Quezon has shown i greatest interest in bettering conditions for the laboring classes. "I can point with pride to tb( fact that during the first year o the commonwealth, the Nationa Assembly enacted every measure necessary for the future safety o. the commonwealth and to settle all of our current social problems," he declared. "During the coming year I am confident we can place the situation between tenants and landlords on a more equitable basis than it has been for 300 years. "I expect to be able to demanc from employers the kind of wages employes are entitled to receive Any social unrest-in the islands, T believe, will disappear within the next year." Investors Are Protected. Taking cognizance of the unprecedented gold mining boom in the islands, the National Assembly has enacted laws for preserving the rich natural resources of the Philippines—gold, copper, iron, chro- mite, timber, and possibly oil. Even the investor in projects fur developing these resources is protected through a securities law somewhat similar to that in operation in the United States. Headed by President Quezon, a delegation of Filipino leaders will go to Washington in February to discuss reciprocal trade arrangements. A trade conference was provided under the Tydings-Mc- Dufiie Act. Fu'.ure trade relations with the United States probably is the most important matter confronting the infant republic-to-be. The commonwealth hopes to obtain a duty- free market for about 1,000,000 tons of sugar annually. However, inasmuch as the Philippines ranks about 12th among the United States' foreign markets, insular leaders believe they will be able to negotiate a satisfactory trade agreement on a "fair exchange" basis which will protect the commonwealth's future economic position. U,S, PROPOSAL GETS APPROVAL i American Republics Agree to Consult If Peace Is Menaced. BUENOS AIRES, (Jf)— A United Stat*.- proposal for consultation by the American republics if American peace is menaced from within or without won final approval Wednesday by the full inter-American peace conference, along with eight other projects. The United States plan, only slightly modified as it passed through a committee, had the unanimous sponsorship of all the 21 American republics. It was described by United States Secretary of State Cordell Hull as "epochal." Hull's resolution urging all American republics to complete ratification of five existing American peace treaties, which also had unanimous sponsorship, likewise was quickly approved at the plenary session. It reiterated a similar recommendation of the Montevideo pan- American conference of 1935. 666 LIqnl*-T»blet. SALVE COLDS pric** 5c, lOc, 25c pr& >r.'.
