but in his own couatry."
Dean Hinton vvas born in 1SGS. His
father was a judge. When 22 jears
old he was graduated from the
School of Law of the University of
Missouri. He also has a LL. B. from
Columbia University of Xew York.

Doctor Holmes has written a book
called "The Conservation of the
Child." He believes that every town
and city should have a special teach r
for the backward and mentally de

injustice is done them in the public
schools, where they cannot fit into the
rather rigid uniformity maintained un
der our present svstem, and so never
have any chance to do what they
might if properly treated and taught.
In support of his attitude he points io
