Protheroe Talks To Rotary Club Cadets Have Motive For Intensive Study, BAAF Officer Says If a boy In school could be made lo feel as strong a motive for studying algebra in his classroom as the aviation cadet feels as reasons for his study of navigation, great heights of educational efficiency could be realized s.aid Lieut. Chcs- ler E. Prolheroe, an instructor In the ground school at the Blylhc- ville Army Air Field, in addressing the Blythcvllle Rotary Club at its weekly meeting. "The cadet knows that his life may depend upon his being able to find liis way back to the home field after a bombing mission," Llcutcnnmt Pro^heroe said. "Can we give the public school student as good a reason for learning the basic principles of algebra? If not we had better consider whether (he subject is worth teaching." Lieutenant Prolheroe argued that a commonly heard criticism Hint present educational systems have faiira because they encourage young people to be lazy and because they produce poorly disciplined boys and girls is unfair. "The-present generation of school children is being taught to think •for Itself." he said, ''.uid-is told Ihe reason for things. We do not favor the Nazi educational system in which pupils are .told they must believe certain ideas because lliosc in authority say they must. This produces blind, unreasoning obed- ence. but do we want that kind of discipline? "The results produced on the battlefields of the world by our soldiers. sailors and marines furnish evidence that our men can obey orders. And they obey them partly because the v arc told the reasons for the actions they arc ordered to carry out. They obey intelligently, rather than blindly, and are better fighters as a result. "American education In general is ail right," he said; "the only trouble is that there still is not enough of it." Lieutenant Protheroe suggested Iliat the educational opportunities provider! by (lie armed forces for Its men and women may awaken the opstwar America to the great possibilities lor Improvement In present educational facilities, saying that "intelligent citizens arc slroiiR citizens, and our average IQ still is pretty low."

(UP)— The chairman of the Henry Kalser- for-Prcsldent Clubs says a boom /or the Wcsi Coast shipbuilder is gathering support from all parls of the country. Vandorf Gray, the. nalional chairman of the Kaiser clubs, has just met with' 27 chib representatives in Chicago. They discussed methods of mobilizing more backing in the campaign. Gray stressed the fact tliat Kaiser is not a candidate for Republican presidential nomination, but will accept It If called upon at the GOP convention. Gray said he believed the next United States president must be: "A man who believes in individual private enterprise In business." Gray went on: "He must appreciate the danger of the continuation of rule by executive decree and the establishment and administration of laws by bureaucrats." Gray says Kaiser-for-President Club has been formed in 36 "states. In Washington, Senator Wallace White of Maine, the floor leader, says he thinks most of the Senate Republicans would rather vote for a gag rule than let a Democratic filibuster on the anil-poll tax bill succeed. • Said White: "I believe a filibuster would be more repulsive than a-de- bale limitation In war time." Southern Democrats, who have filibustered to victory In past attempts to ban the poU'tax, say the cloture vote might be closer this year. But they say It still will be short of the two-thirds majority. The recent Supreme Court decision allowing Negroes to vote In primaries has strengthened the southern Democrats' determination to continue poll taxes.
