T. Smith who assumed the presidency of the school last September. "The basic purpose of Upper Iowa university is the disseminating of a Christian education," Dr. Smith pointed out. He continued: "We want to be a college of individuality. We want to have a dynamic attitude, one of progress." A university should contribute culture, he said. Becoming more specific he listed four fundamental ideas toward ·which the curriculum strives: Lists Fundamental Ideas 1. Creation of right attitudes and technics of study so that student may be able to continue his education after he has forgotten what he learned in college. 2. Exploration by which students will have access to human experience. This should take place during the first two years of university study, helping the student to locate his special field. 3. Concentration -- the mastery of some particular field. "U'e are encouraging mediocrity," he as- Our Community Is Grateful of M~ e rt e p° f ^ IasonJC i t v stan * enormously in the debt of Ma. A. 1.

With two world's fairs to lure travelers, many persons will spend their vacations in New York and San Francisco. · Whether you go to one of the fairs or to a favorite haunt for your vacation, you are going to want to nave a collection of really good pictures to recall those pleasant memories in later years. To get consistently good pictures with few, if any, failures, you cannot escape the fact that you must Jcnow your camera. When you are akmg a special trip you want to know that you are taking good pictures and will not be di=appointed in poor pictures of sub-' jects and places that you- may never again have the chance to photograph. Time to Prepare So, while it'may seem a bit early to start talking about vacations and cameras, now is definitely the time to start thinking about your :amera. There is only one way to know your camera, and that is by using it. Know under which light -- ^-- ..... * ^ i j on your camera to take good pictures and now close you can be to your subject when taking the picture. Get used to judging light conditions so that you will be able to make the correct setting on your camera. If you have to set your camera _foi the distance you are from the subject, practice judging distances and check your judgment with a measure. Simple to Operate A person makes a mistake to go on an important trip with a camera that he does not understand. So if you are planning on getting a camera or on changing to a better one, do it now, so that you will be thoroughly familiar with it by the time you start your trip. A camera is a relatively simple device to operate, It takes more time and experience to learn to choose interesting subjects and to arrange them in the most effective manner than it does to operate ihe camera with reliance. But it does take a little practice, and now is ihe time to begin, so that you will geUhe most enjoyment and pleasure from your picture taking this summer. serted.

Dr. Smith was introduced by Rob Roy Cerney, Mason City, chairman of the committee in charge of arrangements, who al«o called upon Dr. L. J. Lyons, professor of biology at the university: Mrs. J. W.

'·When these criteria are used as the only standard, the importance of the community relation to the schools tends to be ignored and may be completely lost to the disadvantage of both the school and the community. "It is impossible to have a high school m every hamlet, and there are undoubtedly too many small, inefficient high schools but it m ?y , be Better to have smaller schools within limits of minimum efficiency and practicable cost even though the cost is higher and they are not so efficient as larger schools, so as to keep them related to the community life.
