THE SCHOOL HOUSE LEADS US
Democracy has defects. Our government is not without fault. But
with all our faults we have a better government than anything any other 0
country in any other clime or time has event produced. In time of distress
every people the wide world over hold out their hands to us for help.
We are a people of big ideas, and. compared to the rest of the world, ii
small faults. Europe is a continent encumbered with monumental faults Is
and little ideas.
That is shown quite as much in her mechanical and inventive ingenuity
as in her parliamentary practices. sc
The Swiss will make a very intricate and delicate watch which will
do many things-ring bells, tell the time of tide, the season of the moon,
and still, as the Yankee would say, have a saucerful of wheels left over. la
We make a pocket piece that keeps time. That's the main idea. ThatP
is what a watch is for. tr
The French and the Germans make more complicated cameras than
any we produce. But we do what they don't. We put a simple little
camera into every home and collect the priceless snapshot memories of M
life as we live it.
These are but evidences of our tendencies. We get a big idea and sc
Europe and Asia live largely in darkness because their schools have th
been for the select and the masses are illiterate. They seek to cultivate
a few minds to superlative Intelligence. We do no less, and we do vastly
more-we cultivate all minds as far as we can encourage every mind to go. ce
Behold the little red school house, the cornerstone of our greatness.
It has done wonderful things for our country. Now it is going to do more.
Just about the time that Europe and Asia are beginning to get the
essential idea we are pushing the little red school houses together into
the big brick, modern, metropolitan consolidated school, with all its better
equipment, social lessons, assemblies and better teachers. Now we are
making the school work play.
We are beginning to teach by eye as well as by ear. The film is
going to be a better story-teller of history and geography, a better revealer
of biology and botany than any book.
For a long time we graded our pupils by averages, holding the bright
boy baick, which discourages the slow boy. But now comes Dr. A. H. ho
Sutherland, another pedagogue of distinction, who out in Los Angeles has an
demonstrated the value of de-grading our schools so that the slow boy is
encouraged rather than discouraged, helped rather than handicapped, and i
the quick boy is not held lack. Pe
We're a long way ahead of the rest of the world, and we're going to tor
keep a long way ahead.
THE COST OF PUBLIC APATHY Eu
'Trhojsh the people of America are one hundred per cent opposed to me
any more taxation and are heartily sick of the burdens that have been -
placed on them, they fail utterly to make their feelings known with suf
ficient vigor to cause their representatives in Congress to take notice.
Every man dodges the issue by saying to himself "What's the use of
my sayaing anything." As Mark Twain said of the weather: "Everybody
growls but nobody does anything."
Best authorities agree that additional Federal taxation ths year is
uneecapable. National receipts will be less than igured on and expenditures
more. President Harding has announced an unbridged span of $97,000,000,
and I Great Britain fails to pay interest on money lent her here during
the war the deficit will be $9,900,000,0.
Against this may be deducted $273,000,000 of the balance In the
Treasury at the close of the fiscal year, and this spells additional taxation.
The farming interests are flatly opposed to a sales tax, the buineas
Interets shriek at the thought of srewing up the corporation taxes, which
undoubtedly would prove a final blow to a business revival. There re
maih then the income ta, now outrsageously high, but standlng out as
"the bet bet of the polltician."
It the public remains apathetic, as is its custom, then there will be
o justlfication for complaint when the new burden is added.
It is questionable if any country in the world is as uenscientific in its
taxation a the United States. Thi is because the people refuse to take
an interet in what is being done in their name.
