UCrHXKEN The New*, Frederick. Md., Wednesday, November 28, 1951 Poor Movies Injure U. S. In Europe World peace depends upon better understanding of neighbors and better iiuman relations, a Fred- .erick-countian who served a year ae an exchange teacher in Ulster told KiwanJans Tuesday. Speaking during the service club luncheon session in the Francis Scott Key Hotel. Mrs. Herbert F. Davis, of Middletown, described some of the false conceptions of Americans harbored by foreigners. Much of the misunderstanding results from showing abroad of third and fourth rate American movies, the teacher declared. Films which would not be acceptable "fill ins" in this country are screened as "top American entertainment" in Ireland and from poor gangster and cowboy pictures the Irish build an idea of America as a land of "Hollywood marble steps and a swimming pool in each back yard '' Mrs. Davis had difficulty convincing the Irish people she met that America has a large middle class population, and that the white weather-board home is typical of United States housing. One of 97 Americans sent in 1949 to Great Britain under the English Speaking Union exchange plan. Mrs. Davis was assigned to Belfast to teach. Considered "ambassadors ·without portfolio." the teachers" first job was to teach, she said, but no less important was their task of making friends, learning to understand the people and to spread correct conceptions of the United States. The Northern Irish she to be people of high culture. interested in art, m u s i c , the theater. Describe* Ulster Education It is difficult for the people of Ulster to understand the American system of education for in Europe there still is a belief that a teacher "should have a cane and use it" and that "beating education into the heads of students" is a proper procedure. Only the top ten per cent of the population goes on to higher education and instruction is cut to formula and pupils moulded to pattern. Many Irish people believe American Universities give degrees in football and baseball, Mrs. Davis said, and "after I came home I wondered if they hadn't known more about our system than I did!" However, she did her best to explain that academic work, not sports, is the basis on which degrees are awarded. The academic degree is highly prized in Europe and the comparatively few people who earn educational honors use the appropriate letters after their names on every possible occasion, even in telephone directory listings. The trish educators see no need to at- Lempt to give more than rudiments ;o that segment of the population destined by economic and class restrictions for mill or laboring work so basic studies for the average pupil under 14 are kept -"sty simple, little more than the three H's. No Slums In Belfast Mrs Davis found the people of Ulster a "fine, up-and-coming ?roup, proud of their prosperous country." Industry is forging ahead, she said, and farms are be- mechanized. The towns are neat and clean and Belfast itself las no slums The Northern Irish lave no wish to unite with the Free State, the speaker declared, and are loyal in their allegiance to England. Stories of religious intolerance and persecution often are ex aggerated "propaganda." M r s Davis declared. She saw no evidence of the bitter feeling often reported to exist between the North and the South of the island. Mr* Davis urged the service club member* to sponsor and forward exchange programs for students, teachers, business men, and others whose travel will develop better understanding between nations. She declared that once one gets to know one's neighbors in another land, it if impossible to turn and shoot them or drop an atom bomb on them, "Get to know other people and help them to HIOW us." she urged. Mrs. Davis was introduced by J. Vernon Coblentz, program chairman for the day. Mr. Davis, principal of the Middletown high school, was a luncheon guest One visiting Kiwanian, W. F. Slifer, of iagerslown, was present. The Ciwanis president, J o h n R. Cheatham, presided. Guy Anders inducted Ernest Smith, classified as an agent of the Internal Revenue Bureau, as a member.

Elsenhow- er has indicated he plans to leave his European command early next year to seek the Republican nomination for President. "General Eisenhower," Begon said, "has indicated to intimate military associates that he will leave his command no later than next February to seek and accept the Republican nomination for President." The same speculation has come ; rom a number of sources, includ- ing elow friends of th« Genw«l. However, Eisenhower repeatedly has refused to say how long he expects to remain in Europe or whether he would accept nomination if it was offered to him. Begon continued; "His military associates, I've learned on good authority, insisted that Ike declare himself at least to them so that they could plan for the future." Begon's report cam* from Rome, where Eisenhower attended a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Council. · Comment of Gen. Eisenhower or associates was not immediately available there.
