24 Sept. 22, 1949 Hacnn City O!ebe-Gai=ilc, aiason Cit> , Iu. Gear Education to Times, Says Supt. Shepoiser Reviews Conference for Lions Club Education to be effective must be geared to our times and to the needs of the individual student, Supt. L. H. Shepoiser told the Mason City Lions club Wednesday noon in a talk reviewing a recent nationwide conference attended by him at Columbia university. In some respects, he observed, schools today fall as far short of giving application to the best techniques in their field as the medical scierfce would be if it failed to utilize the principles developed by Pasteur and other pioneer scientists. Both in subject manner and in the mode of teaching, said the local school administrator, schools should be trying to answer such questions as: "What will be of greatest help to this pupil in his lifework?" "Learning by Doing" "What will be of greatest help in making this pupil a good adult citizen?" The plan of "learning by doing" has much more to recommend it than the mere reading of books and memorizing their contents, Mr. Shepoiser asserted. While Latin has its place in a high school curriculum, he observed, it would have a lesser permanent value for potential manual workers than several other subjects. Likewise, he added, courses which acquaint the student with their own government and the present-day world have greater worth than ancient history- In a real sense, said Mr. Shepoiser, schools are a reflection of the community's character. Public attitude goes a long way toward determining their effectiveness. There was a frank admission by him that good schools cost a great deal of money. That's where public attitude comes into the picture. There must be a conviction that the education ol youth is of first importance. Praises Mason City In this connection, Mr. Shepoiser paid high compliment to Mason ALWAYS TOP QUALITY FULL-WEIGHT PACKAGES 1 POUND. A POUND, 4 POUND City and its disposition down through the years not only to support education but to demand that it be adequate. Another point stressed by the superintendent is that pupils must be shown the WHY of the work set before them if they are to do their best work. Grades in them- selvps, he said, do not provide a sufficient incentive. Wednesday's meeting was presided over by Dr. V. E. Wicks, who announced that the ticket sale for the Phil Spitalny all-girl orchestra concert on Oct. 11 is moving ahead briskly under the chairmanship of Ece Sanders. The speaker was introduced by Lyle Dillon, September program chairman. "Judge" J. A. Grimsley of Carinel, Cal., former Mohawk coach, was a guest of the club.
