.PAGE SEC A.E.Caldwell,Dell Named President©] County Teachers A. E. Caldwell, superintendent of Dell schools was named prcs Went of Mississippi County teachers Saturday at the spring tcache. meeting conducted at the Women's Exhibit Building at Walker Park. The election of officers was the* outstanding action of a business session, which preceded an address by Dr. O. S. Brown, history and economics Instructor at the Memphis Slate College, Memphis, Tcnn., in which It was brought to the forefront, the need for combating radical tendencies In education. Dr. Brown pointed out thai by plotting Jews against gentiles, Catholics against Protestants, ant! employers against employees. Communistic forces through pressure groups were breaking up the unity of the United Stales. Warns of Socialism The speaker warned against "creeping socialism," whereby power becomes more and more centralized, and the citizens become less critical, less analytical, nnd less sacrificial in promoting democratic ideas and the diffusion of power. Dr. Broivn pointed out that Communism's boast of equality through equal distribution was "to capitalistic not to cause trouble." He explained the use of the term "too capitalistic" by pointing to the enormous concentration of power, wielded by a few, planned by a few, financially administered by the same few, and of benefit to only those few. In his warning about the fallacy of the surplus value theory of labor, Dr. Brown showed that the variance of individuals made division of wealth according to need and according to ability unsatisfactory and unwise. Criteria for Success His address, "The United states at the Crossroads of Its Destiny," pointed to the Idea that success should be measured by the services done, rather than services received. H; Indicated, too. that education was promoting the selfish interests of individuals In Its curricula because of the Influence of public opinion. He said that people looking to the government for support were forcing a decadent culture on Amer- ica. In the business session that prc ceded the address, Mr. Caldwcll also was named as a delegate to thi National Education Association con ventlon to be conducted this summer In St. Louis, Mo.
