Teacher Urges Study of German in Schools That foresighterl students dhould elect German along with other foreign languages while in high school, is the belief of Miss Kay Honan, Kast Bakersfield High School language instructor. .Social work, service in the diplomatic corps, and special duly in the army and navy are only a few of the uses of knowledge of fin-man that have been proven practical, according to Miss Honan. During World War I. prejudice against (leiinauy made the study of German so unpopular it was dropped from the curriculum in most schools in this country. In discussing the educational program of students in .Switzerland where she attended high school, .Miss Honan recalls that, as a rule, KM- ropean children graduated from high school nt -sixteen, having completed courses in advanced algebra and geometry, four years of study of their native tongue and a third language most often Knglish. Miss Houan points out that Kit- ropean students are "ICnslii-'h conscious," and struggle with enthui- jisin until it is mastered. This is in sharp contrast to Americans, she believes, who are generally timid in approaching French, German and .Spanish. Miss Honan attended Montjou School. Lousanne. Switzerland, from 1!»28 to 1!)34. She and her sister were the only American children among students from Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Austria, the Dutch East Indies, and India. Although she was too young at the time to correlate events and education with modern teaching views, she does remember the "education for hate" that wns permitted. Instead of "cops and robbers." children played games in which the Germans were the villains, or the Russians or the Knglish, depending on the nationality of the youngsters. Miss Honan is a graduate of Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles and completed a. fifth year of work at University of California at Los Angeles, majoring in French, CANTOR RESTING HOLLYWOOD, Sept.
