Lovett RATES: 5c A COPY; $1 :00 A YEAR Uniform Training Periods This is the question that is occupying the minds of many Seniors at present. As it happens it affects only those who do their practice in the second quarter of our school year. Because a number of Seniors who live in the dormitory find it impossible to live at home and do their practice teaching, they find it necessary to gain their practical experience in the neighboring cities and towns while other members of the class do it in their own home towns. Because we of the college enjoy a longer Christmas vacation than does the average public school, this rather complicates things. Those student teachers living at the dormitory have the regulation eight weeks of practice teaching while those living at home have just about nine and one half of teaching. There is, then, a discrepancy of a week and a half either loss or gain in actual teaching experience. Upon questioning many Seniors, they all seemed to feel that no matter what the length of the training period was, it should be uniform. Upon this point they were all most emphatic. "Why", ask those living in the dormitory, "should those living at home have more experience than we?" Even those Seniors who will not be training the next eight weeks agreed most heartily with this opinion. On the other hand, those people who will have the added period of teaching felt it to be more or less unjust for they said we will be losing a week and a half or our rightfully deserved vacation which, coming just before Christmas might be used most profitably in a financial way. Without exception, all the Seniors questioned felt that some sort of a rule or regulation should be passed to standardize definitely the number of weeks for senior trainers. As the second quarter is about to begin, this question would seem to call for immediate action"" shall we or shall we not have uniformity in Senior student teaching? Education by Assimilation Biologists tell us that assimilation is the process whereby the new foodmaterial is taken into the cell, and built into the protoplasm peculiar to that type of cell. But when applied to education, the word takes on a new and subtler meaning. For, educators tell us that assimilation is the process of making all worthwhile knowledge an integral part of our mental forces, whether in its original, or in changed form. It also implies the sorting out of the worthless and the building of a foundation for a person with a real education. Biologists tell us that protoplasmic assimilation will always take care of itself, but we need no one to tell us that educational will not. Are you getting a real education?
For The Cultured And Would Be Cultured Beginning November 15 in the Fogg Museum of Harvard, Dr. Siegfred Giedion will give the first in a series of five talks on "Modern Architecture". He is known for his investigations of the whole social background of modern times in relation to modern building trends. He will discuss "The Role of History Today", two lectures on "Architectural Inheritance" and two lectures on "New Potentialities". The name of Wyeth, known to all, presents itself at Doll and Richards, 138 Newbury Street, Boston. A group of three dozen water colors of Maine seacoast and southern "pirate" country is presented by Andrew Wyeth, son of the popular illustrator. A promising exhibit of a promising young artist. SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS at Doll and Richards caused much excitement. The original transparent watercolors on celluloid, which were beautifully mounted and actually used in the filming of the piece were displayed and sold. A show definitely worth seeing. The Boston Evening Transcript is advertising four Full Color Prints a week for sale for thirty-nine cents. They are well worth the expense and may be bought from the Transcript office, the Harvard Co-operative Society and the Copley Art Store. lEAVE IT TO ME, a typical Cole Porter production at the Shubert should interest all those who like a good musical comedy, especially when the actors are Victor Moore, William Gaxton, and Sophie Tucker. A hint, it was held over by popular demand. On Monday, November 7, BOYS FROM SYRACUSE starts at the Shubert. A musical version of Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors. lyrics by lorenze Hart and score by Richard Rogers. It will be presented by George Abbott with Jimmy Sava and Teddy Hart as leading players.

Education Marches On "Education for Tomorrow's America" is the general theme for the eighteenth annual observance of American Education Week to be held November 6 to 12. This theme and daily topics were selected by the three national sponsors, the Nationa I Education Association, the American legion and the United States Office of Education. The suggested daily topics are: Sunday, November 6-Achieving the Golden Rule. Monday, November 7-Developing Strong Bodies and Able Minds. Tuesday, November 8-Mastering Skills and Knowledge. Wednesday, November 9-Attaining Val- ues and Standards. Thursday, November la-Accepting New Civic Responsibilities. Friday, November 1T- Holding Fast to Our Ideals of Freedom.

Poems Illustrating .Photos Characterize MacLeish's Book IILa~d of the Free" MacLeish explains his book very explicitly for us ....."LAND OF THE FREE" is the opposite of a book of poems iIIus. trated by photographs. It is a book of photographs illustrated by a poem: The photographs, most of which, were taken for the Resettlement Administration, ex~ isted before the poem was written. The book is the result of an attempt to give these photographs an accompaniment of words. I n so far as the form of the book is unusual, it is a form imposed by the difficulties of that attempt. The original purpose had been to write some sort of text to which these photographs might serve as commentary. But so great was the power and the stubborn inward living ness of these vivid American documents that the result was the reversal of that theme of the book. I might add that' it is a series of photographs, mostly of the more sordid side of our life/ particularly those aspects caused by the depression, the drought, and the strikes, accompanied by a poem wondering if this after all is the land of the free. The photographs are a remarkable collection. The poetry sometimes reaches a bit into the heights. But the two clash. One finds oneself switching his attention from one to the other so that neither has quite the attention it might otherwise receive. That is one drawback of this attempted combination. And so we find the most recent work of a modern poet. He is most certainly not a great poet, but he is among our distinguished minor poets and he is a most able depicter of the modern scene. BOOK WEEK (continued from page 1) "let's Go International" is the greeting in room 34. Foreign books of all kin~'s ,especially those in French and German, have been imported by Miss. Edith Bradford. Orders for books in foreign languages may be left in her room at any time during this week. Books of fiction will be shown in room 23. Miss Hill, whose exhibit will include the newest novels of the season, will also give a talk on fiction during Alumni Week-end. Any suggestions' regarding the displays or books to be exhibited will be welcomed. Orders are being taken now for the usual sale of books during Book Week, November 14-18. During this week an exhibit of current books will be held in the library. As in past years an opportunity is offered to students. to buy-at avery good discount books of any kind except textbooks, which are handled entirely by the bookstore. Orders will be taken from October 28 until November 18. Order early. Mr. Warren spoke before the Special Commission which is investigating the problems of unemployed youth. He said the greatest fault today was the lack of discipline. He declared that 134 boys were committed to his institution this. year. '*' >II< '*' '" Future educators, think on these things!

had been playing a brilliant game at
outside left dropped a corner-kick over
the goalie into the net as we waited for
an off-side or something to be called to
disallow it. Shortly after this, Shaw
stalled a Clark attack and the whistle
was heard announcing that someone had
committed a foul and Clark/s center Ross
dunked it in for another goal. The half
closed with the ball in Clark territory
but 5tH! in the playing area.
The second half was a quite different
affair with Bridgewater attacking the
Clark goal incessantly all to no avail.
The only scores were in the last quarter
when Ross booted in his third for Clark,
and Dorosz headed in one on a beauti-
ful cross from Malckie Clouter. Malcolm,
playing an outside position, received many
compliments from the members of the
"Lucy Recs" of the American Soccer
League as did Dorosz and DiNardo.

Girl's athletic program now in full swing. Majoring in Fall Sports Hockey, Soccer, and Archery. Tennis enthusiasts keeping right at it by indoor classes. President Gerry Behan very ably discussed our new system of awar~s in Chapel, and we're grateful to her and her committee for such an efficient way of using the 3rd Law of Learning you know .... Satisfaction for work well done. According to this new system there will be more stress on individual sports ... Starting now. We believe in activity with a continued interest for the majority for years and years .... so we require participation in both organized team sports and individual .... that is we require it for yearly awards. But there's more in this game than just awards Miss Caldwell reminds us that when a girl stops doing something about her figure she decides to get fat. Just to keep the Sophs, Juniors, and Seniors from worrying {about awards} we're going to have a committee evaluate your past records and franslate them to the new system. We realize this new credit system is better from the stand-points of honesty and fairness to the individual, but most important it will make possible serious advancement in the way of tournaments. By basing credit on percentage attendance we're putting across the idea of all or nothing. This is a long stride toward bettering our program . We're thrilled to think Salem has invited us up for a Basketball Play Day in Februa ry. So when basketball takes over let's get some good teams ready to go..... and remember we're going to show the Executive Board we want sixteen weeks of basketball by good attenda nce at practice games for the first few weeks, and good games in the watch for sign-up shee.ts on or before November 14:

but we heard that a senior (Henry) and a sophomore (Gert) got that "Faraway look in their eyes" together one nite in the gym and now display glorious sunsets in their cheeks when the song is dedicated to them at any dance. . . . Isn't it "a grand and glorious feeling",
We need more spirit like that... I wonder if there is any of it left around here.·.. That's a challenge·... Can you answer it?
