12 Sept. 28, 1943 Mason City Globe-Gzzttte. Mason Clly, la. Sorority Hears Talk on Schools in Australia Chapter Xi Delta Kappa Gamma met in the 2nd floor parlors at Hotel Hanford for the regular October meeting with the Rev. R. L. Williams, pastor of the First Christian church, as guest speaker. Mrs, Williams was also a guest. Mr. Williams, native ot Australia, pointed out some interesting contrasts between the school systems of our country and Australia. Australian schools are completely state controlled, the program being set up t ahd teachers appointed through the central organization. He pointed out that this plan has both advantages and disadvantages. More emphasis is placed on the learning of the 3 R's in the Australian schools than here. Standards for scholarship are higher. The slow or unwilling learner is apt: to be eliminated because he cannot or will not meet the requirements for passing. Repetition of grades and subjects is more common than here. An interesting sidelight is the Australian custom of wearing uniforms to distinguish students of one school from another. This is a common practice even in the grade schools. Recreation and athletics are stressed to a greater degree than in American schools. The mild climate makes it possible to carry on the program outdoors.
