Mrs. Trnvcr starts with people as they are, not as n textbook says they ought to be; and, from that starling point, she helps them learn to help thc-mselves. Take, for instance, one of her districts which has four or five hundred families, mostly laborers, gardeners, and I nick drivers, with nationalities of all kinds. U has two stores, two filling stations, a tavern, and two churches. The nearest, movie is three miles distant. There 1 were practically no community resources before Mrs. Travel work no disposition to create any. Mrs. Travel- decided to start off with two weekly classes, one In sewing nnd one in family problems .Only a hand- 5% of our tola! population. Should our schools remain solely for children as the age of Ihc population increases; or will an expansion lo meet adults' needs also help children? If there' is something in a community which trained educational leadership can overcome, are schools to Ignore it merely because our education long followed the pal- tern of the old New England academies? Is It, intrinsically, either more honorable or more useful lo teach plane geometry than to teach people how to make their family life belter? If tlie Eastern city had had more education in family life, would the 34(i homes be different? Officers Give Holiday Party For GIs Here BAAP enlisted men, members of their families mid their friends, ful showed'up because there \vasi wows worth $1200 to the local corn- no one to take care of Baby.

With the rate running something like one divorce in six marriages it would seem that there are tensions in family living Hint .ought to give educators concern when they draw up their courses of study. Should the Irate taxpayer center his wrath on the decline of HID 3 R's; or should he be demanding that smug schoolmasters use his tax dollar for .something socially more useful than Latin grammar? Call 11 social work or call it education, Omaha. Wichita, and Toleoo have dived into this problem of education in family living. They have done it in n way that is nnnthemn to some thinkers and welcome to others: partly by federal funds. The premise behind schools' working to improve family life has a likely women (o attend. For a long time their participation consisted simply of having two women sit at a table in front and talk conversationally about their own problems of child care, heallh, in-laws, or housekeeping.
