Education must keep up with the times. We all know there are not enough classrooms or teachers. But must learning come only from classrooms? Aren't there people in the community with special talents and skills who may stimulate and help our students? Are local business firms and industries doing all they can to build interest and experience in their special fields? What about the cultural facilities of the community? In New York, groups of underprivileged pupils with low abilities were given special opportunities. The children were taken to plays, museums, to zoos, to the harbor, to visit industrial plants. Their imaginations and their interests zoomed. So did their goals and their I.Q's. Isn't this education, too?

In Focus At Meeting DURHAM, N. C. (AP)-A new approach to peace—getting nations to recognize that the planet's one billion children, rich or poor, are all in the same troubled boat—was suggested here today. International experts in various fields gathered at Duke University for a unique symposium designed to introduce, and seek support for, a novel concept. This was that the world's kids constitute a single unit—a "commonwealth of children," transcending all national, racial, and cultural boundaries—and that all of them need a better break from their elders so they can develop into "a mature adult society with a capacity for mutual understanding." The five-day symposium, formally opening tonight, will feature discussions by specialists rom the United States, Canada, England, Switzerland and India in .he fields of education, culture. )opulation trends, economics and lealth. The aim of the meeting is o stimulate action programs, by all nations, looking towards "a better life for children now and better world tomorrow." The conference was arranged to lonor Dr. Wilburt C. Davison, nternationally known children's doctor, who recently retired -as dean of the Duke University Medical School.
