From there the group went o Edinborough, Scotland, and then n to Norway, Sweden and Denmark.' These last three countries he spoke of as being completely Americanized. Of Finland, Dr. 3urke pointed out that it is one of he few countries of Europe which is friendly to the United States. Confiscate Films. Describing his reception in Russia, Dr. Burke said that all possessions were confiscated when he en- ured the country and returned to him at Leningrad. On leaving the country, rolls of films which he had :aken were confiscated with the promise that they would be developed and sent to him. When the iilms arrived here, they were unfit :or development. With the exception of Russia, the trains of Europe are better than those of the United States, the speaker said. He told of the unsanitary conditions of Leningrad and Moscow, the large armies, the hospitals, the lack of sex discrimination the freedom of marriage regulations, the care of children by the state, the absence of private enterprise in business, the worthtessness of the rouble, and,the fertility of the farm lands. Prepare for War. "In Warsaw, Berlin, Paris, Vienna and other cities of Europe we saw large armies," Dr. Burke said. The people have forgotten the last wa and are ready for another one as soon as tehir credit improves. Th United States should build a largi navy and army and be prepared s that we will not be in the difficul ties we were in 1917."

Rehabilitating: education ia going o prove just as difficult,- or more o, than straightening out the rall- oad tangle and getting the coun- ry's transportation system back on paying basis. Thus far the government has given much attention to railroada, armera and the unemployed. But what about the fact that less ban half of the children in the United States of school age are in egular attendance at school? What about the fact that half the ·chools in Alabama and some of the ither southern states are closed? What about it when the compensation for the great majority of eachers is only |40 a month? What about the many local school communities that are bankrupt and can't keep their institutions going? What about the education -of the many children released from factories with the abolition of child abor? , Wife Preservers Unless your family objects to the flavor, put a small onion in each end of the roasting pan when roasting meat.

Hutchins, president of the University of Chicago, talks about education. Sitting in his room at a local hotel, the youngest university president in America, who tor* out by the roots the traditional educational system of Chicago's university, stated the United- States was just beginning to realize what an educational system ought to be. "There isn't any question but what the federal government will have to come to the rescue of education," he stated. "So far the Roosevelt program on education has moved slowly and isn't exactly clear. The government IB figuring on giving some education to CCC members, worrying a little about providing some means of educating the unemployed. The rural schools are kept in mind. A .little is done to provide adult education, but it is a terribly slow process. None of the things is definite enough or large enough to meet the situation. Chicago Teachers. "If municipalities remain in the condition they are .in there is no question but. what the government will have to take hold. Chicago teachers have only been paid for the first two weeks of April, 1933. "Government participation in education is inevitable. The only argument is on the form this government participation shall take. Many people want a per capita distribution. My own opinion is that would be a very bad program for it perpetuates all the vices o£ the local communities. I should like to see it more oir the basis of 'the public works administration, making it discretionary." As was to be expected Doctor Hutchins impresses one with his height Dark, with almost piercing eyes and black hair cut rather close, he appeared devoid of too much academic dignity. When the conservation got under way he offered a cigaret. He did not appear eager to talk and yet when placed on the subject of education he kept up an almost uninterrupted ow of short crisp sentences. "Who's responsible for the fact hat education has been plunged Into the abyss?" he was asked. "In act we in Mason City haven t felt is depression particularly in our chool system." Divided Responsibility. "The responsibility is divided," he answered, gravely. In fact serious- ess appeared to be a part of his makeup. He rarely smiled and aid ot seek to produce laughs. When e took up a subject for discussion e seemed to throw his whole being nto it, speaking directly and earn- stlv "We are committed to the idea of ree education, but practically peaking we do not believe in it," he onttaued. "We do not like to pay or it. The whole educational struc- ure is built on the idea of being upported by the local community rily The economic depression has hown the idea was a fallacy for when a local community collapses it hrowE the school out of existence. "We may think it is no concern if the people of Iowa that the peo- jle in Alabama have no schools. But t should be of much concern. It is of concern In national elections and votes on constitutional amendments, for instance. I don't think, -however, hat the federal government should take away the initiative that is natural with local system. Educators to Blame. "Educators, themselves are partly to blame for the situation. They have not developed a program intelligible to the ordinary citizen. They aaveu't done a good job of exposition." The necessity of paralleling cultural education witn technical training was pointed out by Doctor Hutchins, who was scheduled to speak at the March general meeting of the Woman's club to be held at the armory at 8 o'clock Tuesday evening "The ordinary technical high schools in our larger cities are a big mess," he added. "But we havr got to find a course-of study foi those who will not profit by a gen eral cultural education, but wi haven't begun to find out how to di it. Tne Junior college is an institu tion bound to grow." _*_ Mrs. Jeffords Hostess. STILSON--The Woman's Mission ary society of the U. B. church me at Mrs. Anna Jeffords' home Tuea day afternoon.

Titus at the meeting: of the Woman's club better speech class Monday evening at the Y. W. C. A. "No one knows a language until he is familiar with its idiom," Mrs. Titus said. "The Idiom does not fully conform to the rules of grammer but is accepted through common usage. It ia the tendency of our feeling for the language and the queer thing about the idiom is that its usage is universal." Mrs. Titus named a number of types of idioms including the pro- positional forms, the Indirect object, the group possessive, the demonstrative pronoun, the expletives, there and it, and others. "Ring Lardner made use of the idiom to humorous effect," Mrs Titus said. Idiomatic uses discussed included the correctness of saying "she or I am coming," "he escapee uninjured," "she feels bad," -the day's work," "there it is," "were I you," "news is good" and "the Reverend Mr. Jones." Mrs. Titus pointed out that although pronouncing "cither" and "neither" »s "eyether" and "ney- ther" is historically correct, consistency demands that the person also say "reccyved" for "received." on lettuce, top with French dressing.
