Seeing Is Believing ' Gradually (he schools sire bai\\g brought closer to the real problems in life Dial must be tackled sooner or later anyway by the youngsters. The six hours or so which youngsters spend in the classrooms each day nre no longer completely dissociated from the nulsiilc world. For some lime, progressive Iwichev.s have been taking it upon Uicmsdw,; to bring lo (heir charges at, first hand those aspects of the community with which the kids will be concerned in a few years—the operations of (he waterworks, museums, lire and police departments, courts, i'aclories. The experiments have been largely successful. Now, I'or (lie lirsl time, however, an entire school system is going to tackle the problem and will present to .small fry an attractive, centralized program related to the community. A committee of 50 persons in DCS IMoines, la., will study all phases of the city's cultural, business, commercial and political life lo formulate a digestive program of study. The idea -'of the Dos Moines experiment will be to get away from the In'i;. anti-miss system of leading children around the city to observe industry and such, or of bringing leaders in to talk to the kids without bothering ;ibont DIG lack of correlation between topics. If the DCS Moincs plan works out, as it seems certain it will, it \vill very ••• likely be copied by school .systems all over the country. •Business,' civic and culiH.ivil leaders will bo anxious to cooperate. There is no more certain way of educating an inquiring youngster than to lead him right into (he middle of whatever it is he is studying and telling him, "See, there it is. That's how it works.

Industrial processes need not, be awesome mysteries and the business of making laws doesn't need to be confined to the text books. Up to now, the chief difficulty hns neeirihal the lessons taught iii this fashion have been spasmodic, unrelated, sketchy. There h;is never been a city-wide program that attempted lo give anything like an exhaustive survey of all the aspects of a community T>cs Moines is trying | 0 do that. The program is under the direction of Miss Alice Myers, who will organize the survey preliminary to inauguration o f the now system. Miss Myers hope.s. among _olhci- things, to .supplement the fcnowi- edge gained through tours wiih follow- up visits of persons qualified lo discuss (he topic on hand, The excursion to some business office will uot be a Cook's tour and nothing else. It will be a moving and real' demonstration of commercial techniques. Youngsters who get that kind of a picture of their city can't help but bo better prepared to take over the reins of management than their elders were. (AM.)' COURIER NEWS Twit Nations Celebrate • Seven years ago on Jan. 30, two men celebrated anniversaries. In the United Stales, President. Roosevelt celebrated his first birthday in the White House. In Germany, Adolf Hitler observed (he end of his first year in the chancellory. A few days ago, both men again held cdlebrations. From the While House came a kindly, firm plea for a renewed attack on infantile paralysis, a disease that once brought death to many. From Berlin came another kind of mpssagc for another kind of ball In —a bitter, hateful, sordid promise of a bigger and better war, w i I h m o r e deaths, more cruelty. "We in Germany," said Hitler, "have seen enough of democratic ideals." And we in America have seen alb- Jfcllicr too much of Nazi methods. We still like our kind of war better—the war AGAINST death and disease.. Russian Warriors Waver The (-'inns are trying an 0 |,| \.\'ovld War (rick along the Mannerheim front. Instead of bullets they are sending over promises of bread and butter and milk and soup for any Russian soldiers who care lo surrender. A number of Reds were reported to have accepted the offer, just as Germans did in 1918; and it has become necessary for commissars to herd Soviet troops away from the temptation to run across the line for a bowl of hot soup. Soviet soldiers must, know that the words of persuasion might, easily be a trap—that the promised food might- not bo forthcoming. From all reports, it seems the Finns arc making good, bill the Rods have no way of being sure. Yet, they lu - c willing to uke the chance. Apparently the bill of fare on tlio Russian side is not exactly what you'd expect to find at the RiU.'

Her thoughts, min- JJted emolioiii-, ot anger, hurt pride and growing Jove, boiled within ner «s she crowded into the employes' elevator at Varnet's Thursday morninjj. when Tominj Ryan took her home the night before she had left him at South street, too sick at heart to argue further with her fathei- about Tommy or Dan. This morning her feelings \vere so mixed that she would have declared she loved neither boy. She raid as much lo Evelyn Marlow, one of (he models, when Evelyn kidded lioi- about Dan Donovan waiting lor her at the employes' door the night before. "I don't cai-e if I never see another man again," she told Evelyn, us the girls changed in Hie dressing room from street clothes lo model slips. "They're more trouble than they're worth." Evelyn laughed. She had china blue eyes, a doll-like face, ami a fiood-natured disbelief in all human beings. "You're telling me?" she asked. "Listen, kid, no guy's worth anything but what you can get out of him." Evelyn was blond and pink and white, hanc-some in a showv way with a hint of the blowsiness which would come later. As she lalkeJ, Mario thought of the men who waited for Evelyn at the em- ployes' door. They had sleek, well-fed looks, but they were puffy imcier the eyes and {heir mouths were mean. Marie had Jclt undressed when they stared at her. "Mrs. William Marlin wants a dress in a hurry for that party .she's giving Saturday night," said Varnel, bustling in. "She's not satisfied with the gown she was going to wear." As usual, Varnet was dressed in th? height o£ fashion. Jn his tweed lour-in-hand was. a scarf pin with 1 a gold horse's head on it and on the little linger of his left hand, a lapis-lazuli ring with a crest cut in it. He gave a slight cough and eyed ihe- girls. "I want the one who looks the w;iy Mrs. Martin might if she were 50 years younger, lo model Ihe collection." The girls tillered. Yarn el .frowned. "Now you mustn't laugh, This is really a very serious mailer. Marie, you modeled for Lynda Martin, but I'm afraid I'll have to take you lov her aunt, too. You're £N spite of liis remark about hei age, Vsrnet was one of Mrs Martin's slaunehesl admirers. She had family, money, and (lie right friends. She also had the rudeness born of self-assurance.

With Ilial humor which never forsakes [he British even when engaged in a life and death «, press, stage and public have labeled the man who speaks with an exaggerated English accent—"Lonl Haw Haw."
