TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, .1930 Yearning For School Responsibility Must Be Taught; Children Don't Hate School HV OUVK Koitiiirrs BAUTON Children do not hate going back lo school. Schools are open and vacations are over, and an army, millions strong, Is (rot ping in with books ai'-d lunch boxes. And they like it— because whether they realize it 01 not, (hey welcome regimentation After the freedom of lone summei days, and the first exhilaration of Independence, most youngsters welcome the change. Now they will know exactly what to do, when lo do it and the meaning of minutes. We take It for granted that most children hate school. Well 1 don't think so. If they hated it really they would nol talk of It in later years so fondly. There is Joe Smith, for example. He brags about having been the I class dummy. Yet here he is, the J head cf a big business or a scientist of note. The fact that he had lo present a poor report card every month to his dad dicl not, prevent him from making goo:! in the end. School provides the roughage children need. By this I mean that each day they liave to make a real effort. Without it they might find it hard la conform to responsibility. Mothers cannot do it at all, indeed very little, for their interest is personal. School is typical of life, more cr less impersonal, when it comes lo obedience. Obedience to rule, to elfovt and lo social law—it demands them all. The scluol of today is not the tyrant it used to be. Children are taught by teachers who know the intricacies of humnn nature. Call it psychology or what you will, it is part of today's training for teaching. The problem-child is recognized as such raid handled wisely. Then, too. pupils ave not mnrk- ed entirely on their work credits, but also upcn effort, promptness, altitude and the like HAVE TO TAME "FllKE-FOK-AU," SPHIIT I have followed (he work of progressive and experimental schools that accent the "interest" motive and leach largely through that. I L approve tip to a certain point and only that far. But they are doing what I predicted they would do, long ago. Gradually the frce-fcr-all spirit is,t,eing;'.tamed a little. "They, too' see.,th.e necessity of some regimentation and are now adopting more formal methods. They, too, know (hat the word MUST has 'to be written large in every child's life. School is good fcr children, I repeat. Regular hours, tasks that compel attention, a bit of rivalry,' general mixing, all these are the backbone of real life. "Most children do NOT hale school.

Fublie opinion has not yet crystallized in this country, it is defimtely and overwhelmingly against Hitler, and it has a fatalistic imnch that some tremendous catastrophe Is on the way. But it has not yet reached that definite, fixed stage which compels Washington to follow the lead of ihe lolks back home regardless of the private desires of administration or Congress. This, at .any rate, is- the way lhc picture looks to this correspondent after a fortnight's swing through the cast and middle weai. Any Washington correspondent on tour is bombarded by questions wherever lie stops. Usually people ask about the "inside" of Politics— who's going to be elected, how the President stands with Congress, and so on. There are as many questions now as ever—but liractleally oil of them follow this line: Is there going to be a war in Kuropc? If there Is, is the United Stales gciiif; lo get into HI From conversations with score of people who have thrown" tliost questions at me, I very definitely get the feeling that the American people are still somewlial unc^r lain about what ought to be done They want lo siny out of war, of course, bill, ibcy aren't quile sure what i s (lie lies! i va y (n do it, and ij icy j, nvc an une(ls y Cccllng that maybe il n-on'l tic possible.
