, MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 20 · 1937 SEVEN ROBINSON TALKS TO RURAL GROUP Michigan Teacher Stresses Development of Child's Personality. In a general sense, the fundamental purpose of education is, from one point of view, merely to show children a better way of doing what they will ultimately do anyway, Prof. William McKinley Robinson of the Department of Eural Education of Western Teachers' college at Kalamazoo, Mich., told rural teachers and county superintendents of the north- central division of the Iowa State Teachers' association Friday afternoon in the north room o£ the Hotel Hanford. "There are, however, two other phases of. instruction which become increasingly important as the child's education progresses. First, concerted effort must be expended in correcting anything which the child has inadvertently mis- learned, and second, a teacher must always keep in mind the goal of enabling the child, through careful, planned instruction, to do things on a little higher level than children would naturally do them if left to themselves," the Michigan teaching authority elaborated. Individual Personality. Referring- directly to his topic, "Personality Development in the Kural Schools," Professor Robinson pointed out the extreme divergence between the educational system in the United States and the systems now in vogue in European countries under dictatorships. "Any development of Individual personality is almost completely submerged, making mass reaction readily obvious to American visitors abroad. In this country, however, we are happily holding the importance of the development of individual personality second to no other phase of education," Professor Robinson stated. He also lauded the work of Miss Agnes Samuelson, -superintendent of public instruction, in obtaining authority for a national survey on 'the economic status of rural teachers. This survey is now being made, and can only result in betterment of conditions for rural teachers, the Michigan man asserted. Miss Parker Speaks. Miss Jessie M. Parker, state supervisor of standard rural schools, described progress of the "For Iowa" clubs, a recent innovation in rural schools which sponsors a wide variety of extra-curricular projects. Teachers' visits to the homes of her pupils was advocated Jjv^Miss Parker as the most valu- JSTjinyjid at this time in Increasing T^tfie teach'er's'ability.in-guiding the · character education o t h e r pupils.' Co-operation in the child's home is essential in a good system of education, Miss Parker pointed out. Miss Florence Wells, Palo Alto county superintendent, presided as chairman at the meeting. Several classroom demonstrations were conducted by teachers and their pupils. All-American Team of Contract Bridge Players Is Selected NEW YORK--Selections for the All-America contract bridge team, comprising the "big ten" players in the championship tournaments of the past year, were announced by Shepard Barclay, bridge editor of Colliers.

Committee Members . 10. We respectfully urge the total membership of our Iowa Slate Teachers association, the Parent- Teachers association and the Council for Better Education to continue their good work in educating the general public (o the need of a beginning in stats equalization of educational opportunity for every child, and to the need of an adequate teacher retirement system. 11.
