SCHOOL DUTIES Reports on Program at Cleveland Meeting of School Officials \ ^ ?rki . ng ,. back to what seemed \ 1o him to be the theme of the an- ftj nual meeting o£ the American Association of School Administrators at Cleveland recently, Supt. K. B. Irons of the Mason City public schools stressed "Democracy" on the North Iowa Forum over ,,,,? Wednesday evening. The greatest service to the ( . / cause of democracy which the | United States in general and the -"' educators in particular can perform is to make the youth realize the overwhelming intellectual independence instead of regimentation, by baseball instead of continuous marching, by training instead of making God but of either an individual or a state, by love instead of hate, by truth instead of lies." · Warns of Propaganda Propaganda analysis was another topic discussed at - great \ length by speakers at the convention, according to the Mason City · educator. It was urged, he said, that people be taught to take a scientific viewpoint of what they hear and what they read. "Analyze what is heard or read before accepting it," asserted Mr. irons. "Accept it for what it is worth rather than what it says. This habit of evaluation can be developed in the schools. We can more easily recognize propaganda when we see it if we are familiar w i t h ' the seven common propaganda devices." The speaker enumerated these devices as being name calling, glittering generalities, transfer testimonial, plain folks, card stacking and band wagon. Appeal to Emotions It was pointed out that people are fooled by such devices because i tney appeal to emotions rather than to reason. i Warden James A. Johnston of ( Alcatraz penitentiary was quoted as saying that out of a long experience with criminals it was his j belief that crime prevention was a prime responsibility of the schools. Most of the prison inmates, according to Johnston's statement as relayed by Mr. Irons, left school about the fifth grade. They came from discouraging homes, mdn t like to go to school and the school didn't study their cases effectively enough to provide a curriculum apealing enough to hold them. As a result they gravitated into trouble, small at first and then more serious. The warden then gave many illustrations »y said the speaker, of boys who y were saved by some skillful school y_ teacher, often after many discour- Smothered Son Police at Mahoney City, Pa , held Mrs. Gus Edlngcr for the death of her 3 year old son Daniel.

MacCormick, New York ac- commissioner of correction cording to Mr. Irons. "Youth predominates in crime 10,000 children under 17 annually being in conflict with the law of this country," said the speaker in quoting figures given at the convention. "Criminal tendencies assert themselves in early life and the all important work is to prevent delinquency in the first place because the bandit of toaay has developed from the delinquent of yesterday. "A thoroughly good school is the best and most natural agency of crime prevention that we have," MacCormick was quoted as saying. test m 1) ARE YOU PALE, WEAK?
