MORE FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM IS URGED BY NORRIS New Rural School Supervisor Speaks on KGLO Broadcast A plea for .more flexibility in the curriculum ot the schools was made on the North Iowa Forum over KGLO Thursday evening by Supt. Paul B; Norris of Thompson, \yho on July 1 assumes the position as state supervisor of rural schools. The speaker emphasized that demands of the educational system have changed tremendously in the last century. "During the formative years of our country," said Mr. Norris, "we find that the need of education was not as essential as it is today. The youth of that period were in demand to establish homes and take a man's place in the conquering of the frontiers. .~~. . Oppor- unity was everywhere. . . Youth Needs Help "Today society does not require the productive capacity of youth and has endeavored to prolong the age of their advent in the active adult channels. . . . This delay of the entry of youth into active adult soheres has been accompanied by a tendency to shelter youth from the experiences of adult problems. . . . If youth is to regain his social independence, he must be allowed an early feeling of concrete responsibility. He needs help in making the long stride from childhood to manhood. But that help must be wise and constructive. . . ." After discussing the evolution in education, the educator declared 'that the country is now brought face to face with the facts that the schools of today are not meeting the demands of society. System Too Old "We would not think of wearing outmoded clothes or drive an ancient automobile, yet we are endeavoring to meet the needs of society with a system of education that was developel for one age and is now outmoded. Yet if we endeavor to make any change in the educational organization, we meet strong resistance from patrons and students. "The schools, in their endeavor to reach the goal of transferring the subject matter from the textbook and syllabi to the minds of the student, are meeting and have met a most disconcerting defeat. We have a very heterogenous group in our schools who have a wide range of interests, aspirations and abilities, yet all must conform to the same pattern. A scale of attainment is set that all must meet, no effort being made to care for individual differences. We are still training for college-not for life. "The many thousands of investigations since 1910 throw a startling light on the results of education. Taken in the mass, they FINE for KIDNEY AND BLADDER WEAKNESS AND FEEL YOUNGER Keep your blood more free from v.-aste mailer, poisons and acid by putting more activity into kidneys and bladder, and you should live a healthier, happier and lonfier life. .

Gold add up to a consistent coherent, and extremely impressive body of testimony, pointing towards one conclusion: Whatever the goods are that our schools should deliver, they are not what one might expect to find in packages labeled science,' history, foreign languages, English and so forth. What Education Means "The first thing we must realize is that the aim of education is always educative but the practice is not. By educative, we mean having experiences through which we learn to act, think or feel in ways that are better than the ways we would act, think or feel without the experience. No experience is educative unless we behave in some way desirable different as a result of it One may be very ignorant, very inefficient, very immoral, and still be able to read, spell, write and figure passing well. "The first necessity to meet the needs of society is to abandon the idea of a fixed body of rules which everyone must learn. People, young and old, learn only that which matters to them--whatever fails to come with the authentic impact of reality and need is automatically and fatally rejected. Therefore, we need flexibility in our whole treatment of children in schools, and above all, flexibility in what we ask them to master. Away From Rigidity "I do not mean to imply that we would stop teaching mathematics, natural science, etc. I mean that not every one will learn the same mathematics, but all will learn that which is fitted to their need. To organize the school in terms of flexibility instead of rigidity is no small task, but the children of today have a right to demand that we furnish an educational system that will provide for meaningful experiences in activities, that will develop a well-rounded personality, and fit him for a position as an upright citizen in our society with the training for earning · a livelihood.

Inexpensive portable wall lamps supply the needed extra local light al beds and dressing mirror. beneath the shade is a translucen plastic bowl that diffuses the light, and sends it in both upward anc down%vard directions.

And with the new types of fixtures on the market today, it can be quite inexpensive, as well. A good example of lighting efficiency and decorative balance is shown in the accompanying illustration. Ample general lighting is provided by a simple but attractive ceiling fixture made of ivory- glass and brass, carrying three 40- watt bulbs. It's no trouble at all to find a collar-button or hairpin when light Uke this is available. Note the fixtures at either side of the mirror.

With the ne\v portable wall units, however, we almost unconsciously assume i fairly upright position.
