F(W o/ T/ieir School It i:: a littl; hard to believe thai there are asiy. school. children, anywhere, Vt'ho would not rejoice when their . scboolhousc" burned down. Yet so reputable, it mayadne as Th« Nation assures us that this was thc CHHC reccnt- ' ly when the llessi:;n Hills School, at Crolon-on-Hiidsiin, Nev,- York, buvnul sown. If The Nation says HO, it. imist ' be tiue. But it is a bit of a shuck. Indeed, the.-c children not only failed to rejoice at thc Inmrinp: of their schoolhouse; they flocked around and offered to help rebuild it. They oifcrctl their ' pennies and nickels to the building fund. Groups of th;m pledged their al'.'.1 'lowanccs. / In every way they showed ••""'that they Mutually wnntert the school • ••• reopened as speedily us possible.

A school that can make children t.'-.' go to .their classes with joyona zest ' , would be worth studying. --• Yet,v:hen you stop to think about it, i.- thc wonder is that all schools nru not -. like that. Surely the school authorities ' • have everything in their favor as far . -. as the raw material is concerned. The •£. youngster- who trudges off to school '-; for the rir^t time begins his journey *" with high hopes. He is eager to go. ~~ School is going to be line stud". lie presents himself, wide-eyed and expectant, ready to drink iu the marvels th,at fli'D to bo presentcjd to., him. k lie-., "On" fop 3 fif tliiitj•-every child 1 -has an . overwhelming thirst for information— any-and all kinds of it. There nra many, many tilings in this world about which he knows nothing, and most of them arc fascinating, It is tlie job of thc cci'oo! tc-aeher to feed him this in- foimstion; and, considering the appetite tbr .ivevat'e yomujstcr takes to school with him, the job ought to be tafy. But somehow it isn't. Somewhere along the line there is a slip-up. The chile! is not lonjf in discovering that school work is chiefly drudgery. If thc school and the child are both normal— representatives, that i;, of the great average—the child ,-;oon entertains a lively hnlral for the place, and wauls nothing so much as .to be everlastingly free from it, Part of this, probably, is due to the fact that learning anything hax its dull moment!. To play the violin, for instance, is very gratify ing; but before one can, produce anything that even approximates pleasing music one must spend long hours at the most uninspiring sort of study and practice. The preliminary steps are bound to be more or less discomfiting. But is thai all of it? Shouldn't it be possible for the school to be fascinating an;!, enjoyable'.' This little story from (ho banks of the Hudson make; it s'cern so, at any rate. —Bruce Catton. By George Clark Warding OJj Progress It is reported from Brazil tliat Henry Ford's great rubber plantation scheme in the Amaxon jim;rles may ev.ntually collapse because oi' ihe inability uf (In; natives to !.;ot used "to Americ;;:i rules itn.l customs. Native labor employed on the- cont-e.- 1 - sion was treated just about as labor i.; treated on any bite American construction job. The men had, to punch time' docks-', hid io stand in line before the mess ball for meals, had to live in well-policed cabins and in other ways had to conform to the elTicieat, \vell- di-eiplii'rc-d methods of American industry. To be sure, 1 they were Ktttinij gowl money—more, probably, than most of them had ever scon before. Bui they didn't like it. Things wera ton well regulated. The Ford conimissisry i;;:v« (hem belter, fond than they i;ot in their junjjle huts, but the idea of standing in line with a tray wasn't appealing. The company lints wer: ck-aner and more comfortable tb;;n the unlive jungle rflmcks—but somehow they weren't so homelike. So the natives simply quit work; and now it i;'. oval intimated that Mr. Ford may have to jfive up his entire scheme for a great, Brazilian, rubber plantation. All of this is very unfortunate, and Mr. Ford deserves n lot of sympathy. Nevertheless, it is hard ;to keep from liiivinjr a sneaking little fellow-feeling for these half-wild Brazilians who refuse so .stubbornly to become civilized. For while life in the Brazilian jungle is not much belter than out-and-out barbarism, it has a prood deal to recommend it—just as life in the industrial section of any \ng American city has plenty of drawbacks. jthe disease called linynard's dls- .ease.
