MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 4 1936 SEVEN lii ETY Cedar Falls Instructor Gives Talk Current Happenings in Education Topic at Woman's Club Meeting. "Current Happenings in Education" were pointed out to members of the Woman's club current events department Wednesday noon at a meeting at the Hotel Hanford by Prof. E. W. Goetch of Iowa State Teachers college. Tracing the history of education in the United States, Mr. Goetch pointed out that by 1635 a high school had been established in the colonies and in 1636, Harvard university was founded, although much of the education wa? taken care of in the churches and homes at that time. Soon legislation pertaining to education was established and in 1642, education wag made compulsory. Meager School System. "As the people moved westward, the pioneers were concerned with education," Mr. Goetch said. "A meager school system was in effect until the middle of the nineteenth century when the need for schools, better trained teachers and better methods of teaching was realized. Horace Mann began advocating state organization of education. He established training schools for teachers and reorganized the methods of education. "Then nothing was done for three-quarters of a century and the feeling of self-sufficiency and complacency in - education developed. Now education has become progressive. We have passed through a period of evaluating education, brought on when explcnses grew because of the rapid increase of school population. Experimentation began. ' "The things that came last went first from the educational system during the depression. We subsidized industry, banking, business "and fanning during the depression, but we did not subsidize education 'in the same ratio, but rather, closed schools. Much Controversy. "We have had a great deal of controversy over new things in edu- - iation and among them is intelligent grouping of children. Group'^ Ing according to ability is the only p'thing. There Is no stigma to be at' bached to a boy or girl for not be- I n g ^ - i n - the highest group. The teacher must not think 'I have a bunch of dumb bells,' but 'I have the best children the parents can send me and I will do what I can to improve them.' "Another new idea is that our schools must reflect society. The school and the patron of the school must be brought together. There is no more dynamic organization than the National Congress of Parents and Teachers. Make for Democracy. "There is disagreement about the teaching of controversial subjects, but education must make for democracy and people must discuss and think about problems. In teaching controversial subjects, the pupils must find the facts, sift them, face them and follow them. "We are doing more from the standpoint of guidance in choosing a vocation and giving information in our high schools about various vocations which may be followed. We are going to select people for their WHAT CAUSES EPILEPSY? IS THERE A CURE?

Opposite Chapman's CORWITH LINE TO BE RETAINED Railroad to St. Benedict Not Included in Section to Be Abandoned. The Minneapolis and St. Louis railroad was authorized by the interstate commerce commissim Tuesday to abandon that portion of its line from St. Benedict to Algona a distance of approximately 8 miles, according to information received by the transportation department of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce which participated in the proceeding" before the commission on behalf of one of its members and the Farmers Elevator company at St. Benedict. That part of the line between Corwith and St. Benedict will be retained and operated with intermittent service as occasion may demand. The Mason City Chamber of Commerce, through B. J. Drummond, manager of the transportation department, convinced the receivers of the M. and St. L. that the traffic on the line between Corwith and St. Benedict was and would be sufficient to justify continued intermittent operation of that segment of the line in consequence of which Receiver L. C. Sprague at the hearing in Algona withdrew from the application for abandonment the segment between Corwith and St. Benedict, thus leaving only the segment between St. Benedict and Al gona for determination by the commission. Intermittent or "call" service will be maintained to and from St. Benedict thus enabling- that community to have rail service on both carload and less than carload shipments whenever there is traffic to be moved. Less than carload shipments will be moved to and from Corwith whenever the aggregate ,is 6,000 pounds or more and whenever there are carloads to be moved less than carload lots less than 6.000 pounds will be moved at the same time. It is estimated that, on the average, carload traffic will be moved once a week or 10 days. This will enable the elevator company and lumber yard to move their shipments. If this service is not available it would have been necessary to truck such shipments to and from Sexton 4 1 /? miles distant on the Milwaukee. Grocery Truck Drivers to Attend Session of Traffic School Thursday Grocery truck drivers have been invited to attend the session ot the traffic school scheduled for Thursday evening at S o'clock at the court room of the police station.

VICTIM OF HIT AND RUN DRIVER AT DOG HOSPITAL A pedestrian struck by a hit-and- run driver and left on the highways was found by police a few days ago on No. 65 south of Mason City. The victim was taken to Decker brothers sporting goods store and from there to Dr. Stott's hospital for animals. The victim was a pheasant who was unfortunately run over and one of his wings was broken. The Decker brothers, Emerson and Dudley, promptly took the pheasant to the veterinarian where it is receiving the best of medical attention. With a patched-up wing, bandaged, the pheasant finds the Stott hospital somewhat of a haven for it receives plenty of food as well as medical care.

Fay Heads Committee of Student Union to Keep Out Red Taint IOWA CITY, /P--Chaunccy Fay of Ottumwa Wednesday assumed the chairmanship of the temporary executive committee of the University of Iowa branch of the American student union. After electing him chairman, the executive committee ordered that all statements pertaining to the newly organized group must come from Fay, and Fay only. The action. Fay said, was taken because Henry Fclscn "spoke out of turn" Sunday. After being elected to membership on the temporary executive committee, Felsen explained to newspapermen that he was a communist sympathizer, and estimated that five members of the student branch shared his views. Fay declared "any further statements or insinuations that we, as a group, arc connected with the communist movement will be considered a personal slight to each member of the student union." "The term 'liberal' describes our group, but the term 'communist' is way off the track," he asserted. 1,156 Prisoners Are Locked in Cells When They Hunger Strike ST. CLOUD, Minn., (IP)--A hun- i ger strike that prompted authorities I to lock most of the 1,156 prisoners in their cells paralyzed virtually all activities at the St. Cloud state reformatory Wednesday.
