Wft would have a speaker ench morning who was nn authority on the topic which was to be discussed that day. Later we were divided into groups consisting of about 25 or ,10 to a group. Our group (Us- j cusslon leader would then tell us to count off Into groups of fives where we would discuss each topic which, were mimeographed so as to furnish everybody a copy. "In this way we learned what each 1 person thought nnd what influenced him to think as he did.
