Today Requires a New Type of Education Nothing is much more a bold c.xpurimcnl in ctlticiitiun; and one of (hi 1 lioldusl SI'CMIIS to lit 1 the one which will be tried next year al Olivul College, in Michigan, where they are (joing to try to set iilont' without classes. Students at Olivet will lie entirely "on their own" a.s fur as neUhiK an education is concerned. The mornings will )je devoted to private study, afternoons to athletics, am! evenings to discussions, debates, and meetings of students and professors for informal dials. At the end of (he year, comprehensive examinations, both oral ond written, will be given to see just how the students have developed under this plan. ¥ » V A college willioiit classrooms i.s .some- tiling new under the sun, and a more drastic departure from ordinary educational routine would be hard to imagine. But the oxijcrimenl sounds extremely interesting; indeed, one of Hie «)- couraging things about education today is its growing willingness to niiiUc drastic and fur-reaching experiments. It is hardly going too far to say that our colleges and universities luive fallen a little short of our expectations in the last dec«dc or so. We'' have been living in a lime of unprecedented change. New developments in science, in industry, in the . whole complicated ait of making and distributing the necessities and luxuries of life, have changed the basis on which we live and work together. » * ¥ Yet our institutions of higher learning have not been giving us a thoughtful, questioning, and intellectually alert leadership to: help us meet this change. Instead— well, to a big percentage of the population, college is a place where they play football. To an almost equally large percentage, it is a sort of glorified country club where a young man can put 'in four pleasant years getting his rough edges planed down and fitting himself f ol - movement in polite society. It is a great training school for bond OUT OUR WAY sak'sinc'ii and brisk young business men. That is why these collegiate experiments are so welcome. Not all of, (hem may work. That doesn't ninlter. The |»int is tluit some sort of change is needed if our colleges are to Mil the place (hey should fill in our national life. 1'ersistcnl exporiinentiilion will help them lind it. -—Bruce Ciitton. Ceiling Down to Facts The congressional request that the Federal Power (j'ommission miike an elaborate survey of electricity rules throughout the country—-to ascertain, among other things, exactly how rates cliiirjfed by publicly owned plants compare with those charged by private concerns—sounds like an exceedingly sensible move. i For ninny years we have been' hcaiv ing a good deal about the difference between thcjse frutqs. On the one hand we have been (old that the publicly owned plant offers consumers a vast saving; on the other, that such plants are wasteful, extravagant, and iiit'll'idcni, and that their rates are really no lower than those of private companies when all factors are properly considered. Tills survey ought to enable us to settle definitely just which arguments aie correct. We can tackle the en- lire power question a lot more sensibly after this survey has been completed. (ABt).

Nut less than 100,000 people—most, uf them in comparatively humble circumstances—wrote such letters to the president and members of his official family; mill the vast majority of letters urged two fundamental changes-shorter working hours ami the payment of wages above the mere subsistence level, to build up mass purchasing power. It was from his perusal of these let- tors, Aliss 1'erkins says, that the president got the germ of the idea around which the NKA WHS built.

Don't Permit Youngsters to Become Excessively Fat HV UK, MORRIS HSHBE1N Editor, Journal of the American Mcdkal Association, »nd »f Ily- srln, the Health Maguine Mothers have been so driven to tourish tiwir children adequate- y, that they are constantly between the flre->; of underweight and overweight.

DON'T SHOW IT TO ME. !or this is the fact that the spe- •ialisU are still arguing as to just what Is the right weight for children of various heights and ages. The ordinary height and weight ables of a previotis decade are beginning to be subjected to some disagreement. Nevertheless,. It is sufc lo say Hint any child, who weiglis 20 per cent more than'the weight listed in these tables is fat. It is recognized thai some ch.ll- drcn arc fat because ihelr parent.' ire fat. and it Is the tendency of i child to repeat the body build of its parents. However, some au- :horllies say that fat children of Fat parents arc fat because they imitate their fathers and mothers in their eating habile. The authorities on the constitution of the human body insist that there is n fmnily tendency to overweight, in 88 per cent of case*. • * • One Ihing that doctors have observed is tiie fact that it is much easier to avoid gaining excessive weight than It is to lake the weight off once It has been put Mothers arc so anxious to see Uiclr children grow that they are likely to drive them into the development of a large appetite Children may get the habit of eating more than they require. Moreover, a great deal of our modern advertising is a conslant encouraKcmen tto eat more of more things. It has been found that a fat child Is really not as healthful as one of normal weight, and fat children do not do as well if thej ievelop the infectious diseases tiinbctcs or pneumonia. The fat child is coastanlly bc- ns teased by his friends and ts 'kely to'develop a peculiar men- al attitude. • + * In feeding your child you should keep ihcsc points in mind Yoi; hojiJd select foods which are jiu- Mitanl for bniltllng the bodlli issues. Proteins, ihe mineral salts and he vitamins are essential Then he carbohydrates and fats can be added in quantities sufficient to maintain normal energy expenditure, but without such excess that it is deposited around the body as Fut children are inclined to get lazy and seldom take the amount of exercise that doctors prescribe. It is best, of course, in such cases lo put the child In a regular class where It ca ngct the exercise necessary for it. The vast majority of fat children can be reduced in weight by a proper combination of diet and exercise. In occasional cases it may be necessary, with them as with grown-ups, to prescribe various glandular substances or drugs which have the-power to raise the ale of chemical changes in the *>dy and in that way to reduce •eight.
