SOCIETY EVENTS Education's Questions Discussed "If we are to maintain, improve and get the most out of our democracy, it is the duty of every citizen to pay attention to what we want education to do for us," Dean Jay B. MacGregor of Cornell college told the Woman's club members at their general meeting Tuesday afternoon in the Radio chapel, speaking on "Different Education or Education -That Makes A Difference." "There never was nor ever will be a society that wasn't planned " Dean MacGregor said. "The question; is who has done the planning and who will benefit by it." The speaker listed as questions to be considered in a discussion of education: what shall we teach, when shall we teach it and by whom shall it be taught, how is it to be taught and how well has it been taught?

"Others are measured not so readily by pencil and papei tests. * "Education is forced on us by our very natures. The human ie- ing is born with far too few instincts. He finds himself in a peculiar predicament. Man is an animal tied to the earth, but a the same time he is a spirit- he dreams the wildest of dreams sees visions and tries to get where he isn't. He has to live willy- nilly in the world and so has to equip himself for living. "No age ever thought its education was good enough. Man is afflicted with a divine disconten' and thinks that life isn't gooc enough." Dean MacGregor reac illustrative quotations from a number'of writers including Aristotle, Tacitus, Robert Maynard Hutchins, Lewis Mumford, Mark Van Doren and others. "All this yeast of self criticism will continue to work in the future," he said. "The only unhappy persons are those who do not know their past or have misreac them. Education is a search for the right problem to attack in the sense of finding a workable solution. I believe that more progress would be made if we would come to the conclusion that the solution to the problem must be adapted to the day and age in which it presents itself. "We make more progress in social thinking if we re-orient ourselves in what we mean by solution. If we look about us, we can discover deep and permanent interests of mankind arise from the fact that we have tissue needs This seems to settle for us what we should do about education that will make a difference. "If we want education that will make a difference, we must provide a set of experiences, facts and information within the range of aptitudes and capabilities of the individual which bring him in contact with principles which develop his understanding of the world_ and his relation to it.

Dean MacGregor stressed the importance of a program which will orient the whole organism with his environment and said that a free and democratic society rests on the cultivation of the emotional, physical, aesthetic and moral nature of man with participation in all interests available to everyone. He spoke of the danger of special interest and pressure groups anrf said that down the middle way lies truth. "The home must quit surrendering its social functions and quit believing that the solution of problems may be found by turning to the school," he said "The educational function of the home is to give an emotional education better than it has been giving and to become better in the area of developing fundamental habits The emotions are related to all the activities which are basic to life. "Schools should not be overloaded, but charged with giving a set of skills and habits which will set the individual further along the way 6f knowledge and increase his independence in eel- ting knowledge." Dean MacGregor said that in teaching the child, we have "one astray in the matter of interest thinking any interest which would appeal ot the child must be the immediate one, whereas the important interest which he should learn to appreciate is the one in the future. "Society must give schools at all levels a rather wide hand and trust that educators will not upset the applecart of our society," he S31Q. He spoke of the need for teaching the habit of being able to form new habits quickly and compared the principal of inertia as opposed to the principal of surplus energy and said'"When change becomes too rapid, habits cannot be adjusted readily and a cultural lac results. This situation has now bet come , critical in the United States. 'We need a program of social improvement and people willin" to learn to understand other cultures. We need to recapture the Amencan dream. We should not get impatient with visionaries who dream great dreams. We need a social knowledge of the use of machines in the right way. We need contact wtih things and materials to develop creative abilities." Dean MacGregor was introduced by Mrs. B. Raymond Weston program chairman. Mrs. R. E. Homey presided during the meeting which was preceded by a prelude of organ music played by Miss Agnes Anderson who also accompanied the group m the singing of the "Star Spangled. Banner" which was led by Mrs. Clay Cowan. HOF-KEED Laverne^WilUam Hof, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Hof, was married Dec. 29 to Miss Betty Reed of Algona. at the Methodist church at Algona by the Rev.
