24 Sister Weeps at GounanV Grave DETERMINED WOMAN AFTER DAY'S WORK Many Thousands Improve Minds by Correspondence Courses New York, Dee. 29. In an effort to disclose the present status of In dustrial education In this country, and to link the school with the workshop In a nation-wide plan to provide in structlon for millions of workers, ex perts have submitted reports to the annual raeettngr of the American Po. clety of Mechanical Engineers embodying- the results of their surveys. Made under the auspices of the so ciety's committee on education and training, the Investigations were con ducted by James A. Moyer, of Bos ton, director of university extension, Massachusetts department of educa tion, and secretary of the National University Extension Association; Itobert Ii. Sackett, dean of engineer ing in Pennsylvania Etate college and Charles R. Richards, director of Cooper Union, New York. "Industrial education has advanced in a truly remarkable way and prom ises much for the future," said a statement summarizing the reports issued by the society's committee. More than 100.000 persons are study Ing In trade extension courses In New York alone, and 325,000 are studying In federally aided vocational schools supported by appropriations of over $18,000,000, according to the committee, which found that more than 4,000,000 students In the United States have completed correspondence courses. The committee suggests that each Industry co-operate with the university-extension agency In Its state and secure for Its employes the additional personal Instruction furnished when correspondence Instruction is applied for by groups, and the consequent formation of what are called exten sion classes. The committee states its purpose to be "a co-ordination and simplification which may be sugges tive of a standard code of procedure in vocational training." President Ira N. Hollls, of the Worcester, Mass., Polytechnic Institu tion, speaking of the extension and correspondence schools, said that the way to an education Is being opened up by these schools to thousands ' of men and women who -have no money to go to college. "Correspondence Instruction lacks the contact among students that pro motes discussion and supplies stimu lus for study, but it makes up for that in the serious purpose of every stu dent, and in what must be confessed is superior instruction," said Dr. Hol 11s. "A correspondence school can afford to employ the very est talent in the country for preparing text books, and it can lend to the work a degree of technical skill that one cannot find in the average college. The extension schools are usually connected with universities." What Developments Show. Developments during the last year, according to Dean Sackett, show that there is a growing national apprecia tion of the need for apprentice train ing. Schools for bricklayers, steam titters, carpenters, . electricians and others have, he said, succeeded nota bly in San Francisco. The Industrial Association of that city now believes, he reported, that it can train men to be master craftsmen in 12 to 18 months. In the past three to four years have been demanded. Both employers and unions are de veloping industrial training in New York. A joint- plan applied to wood working apprentices is in operation, and plans are being made for the or ganization of training for plasterers, bricklayers and other trades as soon as practicable. "This movement by the New York building congress has the support of financiers, contractors, and union labor and it has aroused wide-spread interest in the problem- of supplying an adequate number ofskilled me chanics and artisans," said Dean Sackett . PRAISES AMERICAN WOMAN Miss Cecil Lcitch Former British Golf Champ, Calls Miss Alex Stirling Finest Shot Maker in V. S. London, Dec. 29. Miss Cecil Leitch. the former British woman golf champion, Is at present in the hands of a specialist for treatment of her arm, and she has said recently that she could not define her pros pects in the matter of playing in the next ladles' championship games. Regarding her tour last summer in Canada and the United States, Miss Leitch declared it was purely of a private nature. She was particularly impressed with women's golf in the Dominion. Of the outstanding play ers in Canada, Miss" Ada Mackenzie and Miss Popler were probably the greatest. Miss Alex Stirling was undoubtedly the greatest exponent of women's golf in the United States, In spite of the fact that she curtailed her play dur ing 1922, She was the finest "shot maker" over there. She had more shots almost than any, other player. Miss Leitch considers that the ma jority of women's golf courses in the United States and Canada are easier than those in England. There is no undulation there as in England, and virtually no wind. The courses, how ever, are very much better kept than in this country. CONSOLIDATED CONTROL Year Of 1022 Sees Unprecedented Development of Finances in Czecho slovakia. Prague, Czechoslocakla, Dec. 29. The year 1922 has been notable in the development of banking In Czechoslovakia. Efforts have been mode, and successfully, to consoll date the banks under a system of joint control by which It will be pos sible, by mutual agreement, to limit the field of activities, thus cutting here is the first picture in this country of the recent execu tions of Greek ex-ministers by the present military government. This shows the sister of Gounaris, former prime minister, weeping beside her brother's grave. Gounaris was taken by his execution ers from the hospital, given strychnine until able to stand and then shot with his four companions. The bodies were dumped in the mud in a public cemetery. Relatives were then notified where the corpses could be found. out waste and duplication of effort and bringing about greater business prosperity for all the institutions con cerned. One of the most far-reaching changes is the abolition of local branches of the larger banks. The business of these branches, such as the collection of deposits, Is being taken over by the savings banks which already cover the country. For the past four years there has been progress toward consolidation of the financial system of the new republic, aimed particularly at financ ing the country's import and export trade, and the accomplishments of 11922 round out this program.
