The partici- hlbitlon of dunce art, it toured the pants in a furious battle have little time to observe and think—until later. War correspondents get the full impact of the war as trained ob- servors. There are lessons to be learned by everyone from this war, but who is to teach them? Will the liberated French In llwir joy at having freedom again, remember how it became lost through the ways of Hellish men, decadent politicians, a corrupt press and inner division and turmoil with no spiritual unity ns a nation'.' Franco was the victim of Germany's aggression, but much of its failure was its own—and that of other nations. Every selfish act can only eventually add up to a great human sickness, the great corruption that is war. France had paid and paid heavily; It will pay In the future for but it has the mistakes of its past, gotten back its Soul. Ernie Fyle left the battlefronts nauseated by the smell and horror of war. Probably not too many can add up historically what causes such horror. It will be left once more to the historians. Economies and political causes will be neatly analyzed nnd no one is to blame. The blame Is placed upon Hitler. Hitler is to blrime, but Hitler hart to IIP (ho prototype of the lender willed Into power by weak and selfish men. s.onie who wanted power nnd some who wanted brend and en eh betrayed the other into Hitler's hands. A group of us were talking the other night and everyone agreed that one of the most powerful statements of our time was made in a ballet. It was the Joos Ballet "Green Table" that depicted the wicked, hyprocatlcal diplomacy of the green table that betrayed this generation Into another war.

Too many thought it mere entertainment. There is cine \v;ty for men, women nnd children to learn and that is through the medium of art. Too frequently, it is dismissed as something superfluous for a scrio'is age. too esoteric for the masses to understand, too highbrow for the practical men and women of the day. Nothing can bo further from the truth. Orfiit art is always simple and direct In its Great art has something to say and says it with great directness and force. There are only too few masterpieces in any art and too few to pay attention to them. The great artists have given inspiring Works to us. the. great poets and writers have predicted ilnd told us wisely man's spiritual destiny, the great, choreographers and soloists of the dance have set fourth much beaut:- and truth, the great sculptors have carved truth into stono, the greatest builders have made cathedrals of truth and yet man goes too often unaware unwisely, unscoingly upon his way. It may seem a far cry from Krnio Pyle leaving a Imttle. front surfeited with the tragedy that is war to a discussion of the arts, but it is not so far. There is the seeing eye, nnd the feeling of a sentient being to whom art speaks clearly, who sees clearly anil feels the impact of each day. There !s need for more men nnd women to know anil recognize the wuy each day takes us. It is only through cultivation of the arts, the teaching of them in the school, the creative approach to thought and life, that civilisation can secure itself against the future along with moral nnd religious training. And art is the chief handmaiden of religion. It is time for educators to evaluate if vocational and practical training is enough or whether or not the subjects of civilization and greater imaginative approach to existence itself should )«• left neglected and judged "impractical" In preference for a broad general pattern on the subsistence level. There Is malnutrition of the mind, imagination nnd spirit that is just as deadly as malnutrition of the body. Now Is the time for a real stock-taking of educational nims to see if the proper tools are being used to forge, thinking, feeling and imaginative men nnd women capable of presedving civilization.
