Harper, head of the line arts department of the State university of Iowa, addressed approximately 80 teachers at a noon luncheon in the Eadmar hotel, his subject being "The Spiritual Ministry of the Fine Arts," in which he stressed the ever-important place of line arts in the world of today. "There is much turmoil, struggle and ugly strife in the life of man even when nations arc formally at peace with one another," the educator stated, adding that "that condition is aggravated in such a fr a £. as the one in w hich we live. It there is to be peace in the world our time for most of must find it in our consciousness. us we own inner . "The dignity o£ lite and of human nature have been ruthlessly trampled upon many times in the history of the human race but never more viciously than today Beastly thoughts are inculcated in the minds of men by means of powerful propaganda, let loose by governments who hold the power of life and death over every subject. Unspeakable indignities are heaped upon the bodies of men and women. Physical life itself is reduced to a mere existence without the creature comforts which civilized Men somehow thought he was heir to, ofttimes without even the barest necessities to maintain health and strength.

'And in the grip of such forces as have been let loose in the lives of men today how terribly impotent men are made to feel I am not prepared to say that the peace which men crave, the poise which men need, and the power without which men suffer frustration and defeat, are to be found only through the fine arts. "But these arts have their great and effective service to render. Arts Can Give Service "I believe that any normal man or woman can experience the life- giving, inspiring, soul-uplifting influence of the fine arts. I cannot help but believe that if men will hear and believe testimony as to the service the arts can render them, we shall have a much wider participation in support o£ the development of art in the life of America, for its inclusion in the curncular program of schools colleges and universities, and for its inspiring practice in galleries theaters, concert halls and opera houses. . ^ "When the walls of life seem about to fall in upon us, when the facts of life seem too hard to bear too bitter to accept, then, not as an escape from life, but as a^progress into a realm of life which ill too many never enter, men should turn themselves to music painting, sculpture, drama, literature and architecture. HEAR TALKS Prudence Cutn'ght Speaker at Luncheon Conference Here Prudence Outright, assistant superintendent, Minneapolis public schools, addressed a troup of about 100 superintendents and principals at a noon luncheon at the First Baptist church, speaking on "The Relation Between Curriculum Study and Supervision." Paul B. Norris, superintendent at Thompson, was in charge of the meeting. Miss Cutright said that the curriculum movement was justified because of a need for education lhat will contribute citizens who will help in the building of a democracy. Not Anti-Social Progressive school education she said, has shown the way to do some things in an active way in developing a type of program that will develop the kind of citizens needed in democracy that will be anti-social. She. defined the curriculum as every experience which influences a child and said the school should be concerned with community affairs. Tiie purpose of revision of the curriculum is to improve teaching. She said she wasn't concerned with printed curriculums but with what takes place in the school room and she believed that supervision and the curriculum construction overlapped. Discussed Phases She discussed briefly several phases of progressive education including forum dicussions new development in report cards, achievement cards, etc. The problems of the child in his community must be understood before a school program can be constructed that will meet the needs of that child, according to Miss Cutright.
