WOMEN TOftAY By DOBormr son AiMoelatcd PreM W MMHI V WHAT DO «. S. eOXm AMD HIRUIletm in school? This question is abiorblnit tho attention of • growing number ojf parents, business men utd other nterested groupt. A recent survey by the New t 'ork Times revealed • shocking ack of knowledge of American jeography among U. S. coUogo jtudenta. The survey, based on a ist of questions given to college students throughout the country, ,showed that many would be unable to make a parsing grade in a sixth grade geography teat. Simple questions such as the location and population of the ten largest U. S. cities showed college seniors with only the vaguest notion of the size, shape or charac< teristics ot the land th«y liv« In. « • • A PREVIOUS SURVEY by the same newspaper brought similar results In • quiz on American history. A recent article in this column on poor spelling among secretaries brought a flood of mall, both pto and con. A number of secretariet wrote in to point out the difference between secretaries and the common garden variety of stenoftraphers. It must have been the latter, they said, who didn't know how to spell. Several teachers wrote to obtain the te^t word list given In a secretairial training course eon- ducted by a large New York corporation, regularly flunked by 50 per cent of the secretarial asj^ ants. • • • ALREADY THERE IS A strong movement afoot for a return to the old readin' and 'rltin' and rithmetic routine of the little red schoolhouse of fond memory. Also a new respect for the hickory stick is beginning to at^ear In some quarters. The so - called "progressive* schools seem to be fewer, and parents are seeking institutions of learning where discipline is recognized as a necessary part of educating the young. The pendulum is due for a swing back to some of the old-fashieneo virtues, both in education and In adult attitudes. GLASSES Dr. J. W. Willlamt. O. D. 1U NorHi 10»k St. Mt. Varnen* ill.
