He became an Interior decorator and worked In various ptrtt of the country, always wrltinir home to tell the family of his rood fiMune and to send money tr.

' ; : P I Mustapha Kemal Pasha Entertains t - : STANDARDIZED PLAN i . OF EDUCATION NOW URGED BY - STEINMETI American School System Somewhat Crude, Noted Scientist Declares. SCHENECTADY, N. Y., Oct. 21 National supervision of America's school system Is advocated by Dr Charles P. Stelnrneis, ielbratert cnnsultant engineer, or the General Klectrlo Co. Such centralisation, ho believes. would raise educational standards far beyond what they are today and make possible & thorough education for every child. "In basic principles." said he, "It la my opinion that American educational institutions are operatlnK along the rfKht linen. Hut they are crude in their methods. This Is per haps because they are now only a generation or possibly two generations old." Dr. Hteinmetx is well qualified to criticise schools. HI'S parents endowed him with an extensive education. Ills education in Ormun scho6ls And collides was, as a mat ter of fact, his only asset when he arrived In New York as un immi grant In 1RS9. NtadleH School n. Here In Schenectady, a city of nearly 140,000, he has several times served on the school bourd. Ills nat - Ameiican history because that gives him one credit. He choses ancient history because that gives him another credit. As a result he learns nothing of history between the fall of Kome and the landing of the IMIgrlma. Yet he ond his parents nd teachers are satisfied because he has acquired two credits. Kvsry - body seems to forget that education, rather than credits. Is the real rea - 'son for going to school," The widely heralded "play element" In education Is not wholly approved by Br. Stetnmets. Although favoring snpthlng that will develop and hold the Interest of pu - pllK. he says: "When we first get the public school products at the Cieijeral Klec - trlc works, we often And that tt takes two or three ytars for them to acquire concentration and Indus trioiinness If they acquire it at all, Children educated to do everything by play would have a hard time adapting themselves tn hard work. "The important thing o kep slKht of In that schools primarily are run to supply education nd not to enable student t - 5 (;ct rredltn. Centralization under federal con tnl would make Amerlmn schools what they should b tho best In the world."

Mr. Ward also urged fedcrsl supervision over Interstate ahlpments of milk and other dairy products and advised the usa of refrigerator cars for the transportation of milk, cream and supplies for those cities which receive vpeir product from distant points and suggested trying out coosssssewf .ng of con - aumera. The speaker deolared that education of the public through the puh - lie schools and health officials in r matters of food . economics would bav a great public health value. Prohibition has more than doubled the work of Inspection of soda fountains and soft drink manufacturing plants declared James P. Kll - : course, chief of the bureau of food inspection, of the Chicago department of health. "Six yeara ago there were 3 manufactured of soft drinks In Chica go. Today there are 138. The rapid expansion of the business has resulted In a great deal of carelessness." Mr. Kllcourse said. "In April 195J. Dr. Bundeson, commissioner of health, ordered a drive on all soft . drink establishments which resulted in a general cleanup, white washing. scrubbing, cleaning and painting. "Several llcenrea were revoked because the manufacturers persisted tn using bottles and siphons of other dealers, thus making It Impossible to check the responsibility for un sanitary condltlona" if, A BERT S.
