The program for the secondary school principals at the St. Louis meeting, centered about the report of a committee which was appointed four years ago to study the problems of the secondary schools of the United States, Mr. Rae said. Funds Contributed. Mr. Rae spoke of Thomas Briggs. secretary of education at Columbia university, who is chairman of the committee. The Carnegie Institute advanced .$9,000 and the department of secondary principals 56,000 for the four years study. The committee, defining an issue as a conflict between a theoiy and a. practice, proceeded to advance 10 issues in solving the problems of secondary education in the U. S. The issues quoted by Mr. Rae were. "Shall secondary education be provided at public expense for all normal individuals or limited to a favored few; retain all in school as long as they wish to remain or let other agencies assume the responsibility; be concerned only with the progress of the individual or as they affect society; provide a common curriculum or differentiate with individuals; include vocational training or restrict to general education; serve best individual or community; present just organized knowledge or assume responsibility for attitudes and ideals; consider just social needs or the reconstruction of society?" Mr. Rae who is a member of the committee of the delegate assembly of Iowa reported on the retirement .system for teachers of Iowa. A sane and workable system Is being formulated in Iowa for the betterment of the schools, not for the individual, by contributions on the part of the teachers and the state. Superintendent Irons reported on the program of the superintendents at the St. Louis convention, assuring the teachers of the Mason City schools that the problems encountered here are not local only, but national, citing the report card problem as an example. Eleven general sessions were held at the St. Louis meeting, to study the "Function of the Schools in a Democracy." "Academic freedom should be fostered in a democracy, along with the freedom of the press was the contention," Mr. Irons said.

Federal aid for education was presented to the superintendents in a three-way debate, Mr. Irons said, and presented some of the arguments. One for federal aid pointed out that the people of the TJ. S. are not inclined to stay in one community, thus making education a common interest throughout our country. Local control should prevail, but there should be equal opportunity for all. A minimum offering should be guaranteed every child whether in a rich or a poor district. The minimum should include nine months of school, ade- duate schools and e q u i p m e n t , trained teachers and salaries to correspond. Miss Hall inli'oduced R. E.

MAUY MORTON Roast Beef Potatoes Roasted With Meat Fried Parsnips Cole Slaw Chocolate Sponge Pie Coffee How do you roast beef? a bride may ask. I prefer what the butchers call an English cut, which has bones down one side; a r u m p roast which is rolled, or you may choose a rib roast. This, toe, is usually rolled, after having the bones removed. It is more expensive than the other two. Personally I prefer to leave it with the bones in. and unrolled, because then I can later boil the bones with the leftover gravy, an onion and staik of celery, and make the foundation for sonp. I heat my oven to 450. wipe the roast with a damp cloth, put it in the roaster and put it in the oven, uncovered, and leave it for half an hour. Up-to-date cooks are advocating leaving it uncovered the whole time of roasting, but I usually add an onion or two. a few bay leaves, salt and pepper and a little water, and cover it, lowering the flame to about 350. Allow about 20 minutes cooking to the pound if you like your meat fairly well done. Add the potatoes about three-quarters of an hour before the meat is done. Today's Kccipes Fried Parsnips--Boil parsnips until tender, cut in slices and fry until brown. Cole Slaw--Slice cabbage very thin and pour over it the following dressing: One-halt teaspoon salt, one egg, one-half cup milk, two teaspoons butter, one-fourth cup of vinegar, one-half teaspoon mustard, one teaspoon sugar, one-fourth teaspoon pepper. Heat milk, add dry ingredients to egg, then add milk to egg mixture. Cook to a custard. Add butter and vinegar and strain over shredded cabbage. Set away to cool.
