Br JOSEPH DANA ALLEN, , llendmnater Polytechnic) Prepnrmt ory Country Dny School. HE Country Day School has been hailed ns & new depart ment In education; rather may It bo looked upon as a Jng back to the days of tho little . rS$chool house, when tho meant lot cfiSfc by, the adjacent brooks and woods, claimed all n boy's free time soufof school when the schoolmaster tif the personal friend, tho play fel the companion of the groups that flly started off for after school dl relons, now called "extra cur "Acuium activities." It Is tho organ, filled; effort for the normal in a boy's llie,! combining the education of the hrae, tho fnmlly church, the class mom and the playing fields Into his 1 dlly round ; preparing lilm not nlono '.JSeV-college entrance and professional sttidy but for homo making of his J&'n'-somo dny, for taking his part In tike family church, for bringing to the political and social questions of his rontnnnlty the understanding and in terest of onr broueht un nmonH-Uiem. The Country Day School nsuch Is H-groTTUJ 01 me insi twenty years, auu already, beginning with the Gllraan School of Baltimore, .over twenty-flve recognized schools of this type have fraug Into prominence in or rather oiit of the largest communities, from . liwtton to Kansas City. These Schools belong of necessity to the largo cities and come In response to tJ.falr demand of tho city boy for epsaethlng to do and somewhere to do "tt!ln the afternoon, for a real place to - Mkr his games ns they should be , played, which should be the right of s every boy and Is a very Important clement In his development Into the ablest and finest typejf man; In re onse also to his demand for proper instruction In the subjects required for entrance to the college of his choice, for helpful comradeship and lftiplrlng leadership among boys- and , Makers, and finally for tho Joy and irtajjfdlsclpllne of homo life during his formative years. .'All this the Country Day School aifns to do, to glvo the boy everything t$e(jbest boarding schools have been ' nblq to give during tbe day and then tivwsid the boy home for the normal a&bclatlons of family life. Dally we nriei coming to recognize more fully tSpf Importance of this family life. Toil do not teach a boy how to make ngbome by keeping him away from one during his most impressionable years; to be interested and helpful Jiljlocal problems by sending him out ot'the way of hearing about them; . toTfeel a responsibility for his home ' church, a joy In Its service, by brlng Ingihlm up in another religious at mosphere; to resist the Inevitable temptations of college life by giving , l)Jm. the almost monastic' life of the ,t jiyding sehool until ho goes to .allege. t, jSiirhe Country Day School has ex ' Ssted long enough to show quite con- ; jfcltwlvely that its supervised study :- iours. Its closer association with care : .-Jnlly chosen masters, can fit tho boys So', compare favorably with boys from warding schools In the college en :r&nce examinations: that its organ . ised play. Its carefully trained teams, ; intelligent physical supervision " &5vo done much far the health qnd ? spirit of the boys; that the greater personal responsibility developed in 5the hoys who have learned what to vold In city life prepares them to . Jaeet the distractions and the tempts iilbns of college life much more wisely Shan does the secluded life of tho Jrural boarding school. Finally, that She closer touch with civic and church Affairs gives the boy n broader outlook :and tends to make him more ready to inke his place and to do his part In &fs native city on his return from SSileire. Cooperation is one of the basic prln- ' ' ulnUa rte ilia Hmjta nnri hna n mnst important part In the work of the Country Day School. The school, the Some, and the boy must work together aji; sympathy If the school Is to meas Sjrp up to Its Ideals. The school must jJt simply hear tho boy's prepared :reclt(UIons or work out corrective dls Spline for tho unprepared It must ,teacli the subjects, supervise the frtudy nnd show tho non-studious boy 3tqw. It must foster athletics ns a 'lftM-na tn nn pnrl. nnd thnt i.rul tllft i building of healthy, husky bodies and f(ers, not the winning of (fames nnd jtrphles. It must also develop Ideals Jst, service and leadership for which .th community will look to those boys jter and must not look In vain, finally, It must keep before Its boys 'the practical application of those jWtttU, the points of contact for the vr, without which tho highest -alu, the innut altruistic scrvlco bo- quixotic, ueiitlincntal and Im- Education of Home, Family to teach or even to help In. the daily lessons, simpiy to give the school the right ofMvay over the boy's time to keep tho demands of tho school first. steadily refusing the appeals for out side things which creep In so easily to nil n boy's time and thoughts and warp his perspective. It Is not tha one evening nt the movies Is so bad in Itself, though the shallowness and artificiality of most of tho movlo themes make thera.nnythtng but help ful for boys ; it la that one such eve ning begets another, throws the boy out of his habits of study nnd leads him to feel that his school work Is not the most Important thing for him but may easily bo set aside for'varl ous distractions. Tho family should keep tho boy an active contributing part of the family circle, making the most of the sun shine nnd tho discipline which ho brings into the household, while he learns to love nnd to respond to the broadenipg and gentling influences of dally association with sisters, mother and father. Tho boy's part In the cooperation Is a simple hut a most important, nnd hould be n very happy part. He must recognize and make the most of tho opportunities and the consequent responsibilities that such a school gives, and at home must do his bit In tho many ways we all understand. ' An outline of the dally routine In the Country Dny School may be of Interest. As In most schools, tho day opens at 0 with brief chapel exer cises, religions but not sectarian In character. Then come recitations and supervised study periods until 11:30. when the juniors,; the youngest boys, go out to play for an hour, after which they lunch and nt 1 return to work until 4:30, with another ploy period thrown In at 2:30. The mid dlers lunch' at 12:15 and then arc free for their sports until 2:30, when they return to work until C. The seniors have a lunch period nt 1 ami then continue work until 3:15, when they go to their games until 5:15. Thus all ages have their, sports by themselves and so separated that the little boys have the playing fields, the gymnasium or the pool to themselves with the complete supervision of the Instructors, Just ns much as do the seniors. Saturday afternoon most of tho Im portant matches ure played and Sat urday morning Is set apart for speclol work for boys who from Illness or other causes are behind In their studies. -At this "time the Instructor hns a chance to work with the boy Individually, to find his particular trouble and help him meet It, and so to save many a boy who otherwise would fall hopelessly behind. This Saturday morning work Is an Impor tant factor In the Country Dny School plan nnd Is 60 recognized by mosief the boys nnd their parents. Many methods for bringing into closer touch with the home have been, developed. Ono of the best Is known as "fathers' dinners," when fathers dine with the masters of the school, talk over any subject that bears on the work, becoming ac quainted with the men who are teach' ing their sons nnd getting the lrispjra- tloh of their Ideals In the work. Such In the main Is tho programme of the Country Day School. The Brooklyn Polytechnic Is almost the youngest of these schools, but nl ready It is tho largest, and It feels that the success of Its boys n their college entrance examlnntlohsthnd the enthusiastic support accorded It by the" parents as well nsby tho boys them' selves Indicates that It Is In part at least measuring up to tho high mis Bton of the Country Day School.

II. of the appointment of three alumni to the Instruction corps for the coming year. They are: Harry Richmond Wellman, '07. to be professor-of commercial organization and management: Nathaniel O. Burleigh, 'in to the professorship of Industrial organi zation and management, ana uuoert 11. Tapley, '16, to be secretary of the Tuck School and Instructor in statistics. Mr. Wellman comes to the school from his position as vice-president of the Walter M. Lowney Company. After graduating from college, where he was Lactlve In all undergraduate activities, he oecame secretary to ine ruuiii irauc board of the Boston Chamber of Com merce In 1909. In 1911 he was appointed assistant secretary to the Chamber of Commerce in Boston: in 1912 he was as sistant to the chairman of the board, of port directors, and later spent a year In rharge of tho men's advertising for William Fllene's Son3 Company. In 1913 he became advertising nan- acer for the Walter M. Lowney Com Jiany, In which he has been successively sales and advertising mannger and vlce- fyreBldent In charge of distribution.

R F., at Bellevue, Selne-et-Olse, In 1919. was organized as an Independent post under Major George H. Gray of the Engineers and functioned from March to June last. The curriculum was arranged by Mr. Lloyd Warren, the director of education and dean of the factulty, He had as assistants George S. Hdlman. Ernest Polxotto. Solon Borg lum, Lesllo Cauldwell, W. C Tltcomb, Clarence E. Howard. Archibald M. Brown and Robert F. Logan. The work was classified In the departments of archi tecture, painting, sculpture, interior deco ration, city planning and Itineraries. Mayor Gray says In his report: "Our army of citizen-soldiers found Itself at thn end of the campaign In a foreign land which Is a veritable treasure house of art of every description, whose whole history Is Intricately Interlaced wltji the history of art, a land which for ages has bren producing masters and master works, a. land replete with museums, schools and Instructors of great gifts. To our citizen' artists, who are momen tarily soldiers, the army authorities granted the high privilege of dropping their arms and taking up' the Implements of their arts. Such were the extraor dinary conditions under which this school came Into existence, and such were the educational opportunities which the edu cational director so ably moulded to his purpose." The reports of the Instructora nnd the reproductions of the work of the stu dents hear testimony to the versatility of our soldiers and to the fidelity with which they have availed themselves of their opportunities. The building used was tho former Palace Hotel at Belle vue, which had Just been vacated by the Ai R. C, where it had served as a base hospital. It Was arranged that all the 'students should visit the monu ments and places of general artistic In- 1 terert In Paris and Us vicinity, including clinteaux,- museums, exhibitions, fn: mlttee of the Boston' City Club. Daring the war he was a graduate of the ofneerr training, school. Camp Meigs, Washing ton, and was' later appointor supervisor of development battalions and assigned to various camps for dlrectlonpf this work. Mr. Burleigh comes to his new position in the college from a position as assistant director of the department of Industrial engineering with the Winchester Repeat ing Arms Company, where he has been In contact with and responsible for many of the policies having to do with Indus trial organization and management In different departments of this great plant. During his undergraduate course ho was nn honor man In scholarship and grad uated magna cum laude. Immediately after graduating he served for fou years as an operating official of the Boston Elevated Railway Company. since which tlmo he has been connected with tho Winchester Repeating Arms Company at New" Haven, Conn. Mr. Tapley, who has Just returned from France, where he held the rank of first lieutenant In ordnance, graduated In the honor group at Dartmouth tn 1916 with magna cum laudb standing. When the war broko out he Immediately took tho first ordnance supply school "course ahd was Inducted Into the ordnance de partment In November, 1917. He was stationed successively at Washington, at Raritan ordnance depot, and then, In October, -1918, was assigned to -the ex peditionary force tn France, where he has Been since that tpie. CAMP BIVEBDALE. At Camp Rlverdale In the Ad! rondacks. Long Lake, Hamilton county,- N. T a group of youths be tween 12 and 16 years is having the. finest of the eight summers In the experience of the camp. They are spending the time largely on 'trips Into the deep woods. Already they have climbed the highest mountains' In the neighborhood of the camp Kemp shall, Owl's Head, Blue Mountain and Seward and this week they are due to take Ampersand. The weather has been wonderfully fortunate. Tho Kempshall group had the opportunity to scan the horizon ft)' almost Its entire circumference, and to see lakes and peaks which are only rare ly visible. On Blue Mountain, however, tho atmospheric conditions were the finest thus far. The sky was brilliantly blue, flecked only with small clouds. and ,the vision was such to include White Face, sixty miles to the east: Marcy, forty miles distant, and all qfj the other great peaks. Ltiue mountain Is high enough to look down upon all of the surrounding country, so that the view over tho billowing mountains was unforgetfuL This Blue Mountain trip was quite remarkable In that the party consisted of forty-one altogether. Tha Rlverdale boys always go Into the mountains with' out a guide or other help, and take care of themselves entirely. It was no small achievement for a group of this size to maintain Itself with splendid food and sleening device over three days. On tha third day of the trip the rain came down plentifully, but had no ef fect upon the ardor of the campers, ana In sDlte of the downpour they reached home reasonably dry and thoroughly haDny. The Seward trip was undertaken by a party of fourteen. Including only the strongest and best campers, which Is the most difficult climb of the year. There The school was opened on March 6 and It soon contained 350 students, but many of them could remain but a. short time. In addition to the faculty, as noted above, tho , cooperation of French savants was sought and obtained by -the director, and lectures were given In English by ten notable authorities on such subjects as French architecture, painting, sculpture. Interior decoration and applied art) Among the French lecturers were J. J. Haffner, Salomon Rclnach, Louis Dlmler, L. Hourtlcq, Marquet de Vasselot. Frltsch-Estrangln, Glr'aldon, Demotte, J. C. N. Forestler, and others. Mr. Warren says that no undertaking could have received more loyal, devoted and able collaboration ttian the members of the faculty and the staff of Instructors brought to bear on this work. From the beginning they showed keen desire to put their best abilities and energies at the service of the men In khaki. "The same sincere Interest,'' he adds, "I encountered In all my relations with the French art ists and savants whose cooperation I asked." On the part of the students a corresponding appreciation. Intelligence and application to study made the task of the faculty easy. So, on the whole, the director thinks the results obtained were most satisfactory. Capt Polxotto'a report of the depart ment of painting Is particularly Interest ing. In March, through the cooperation of the "French Homes" and of M. Jean Rene Carrlere, Bculptor, son of the cele brated artist, Eugene Carrlere, a series of visits to the studios of the most noted French artists was begun, these visits continuing every Wednesday afternoon. This was a privilege that no students In Paris had ever before enjoyed. Two or three studios were visited each week, about thirty students, accompanied by M. Carrlere and Cant. Pelxotto, spend ing an hour or two with each of the great painters, sculptors and draughts men, hearing them talk of their art and their work, seeing that work In Its va rious stages of completion, visualizing the personality and surroundings of each man'. In turn, they were taken to the studios of conservatives and radicals In art, And were thus enabled to form their own Ideas as to which of the theories or pres ent day art was best suited to their own opinions and temperaments. Tho studios visited Included those of Bonnat, Bes nard, Roll, Cormon, Cottet, Blanche, Gor guet. Reno Meqard, Van Dongcn, Paul Chahna. ATIIa. Dnfflii Tnnttr Rt1n1n I Wlllette, bevambez, Jonas, Batmomo. Dam ft. Bouchard Bourdelle, Slcard and Desbots. Toward the end of the term the stu dents of the painting departments made two excursions to famous French land scape sketching grounds. On pirty went Into Normandy, visiting Vetheull and , Glverny, where they saw the home of . Monet, then on to Andelys and the lower valley of the Seine. The other party went to the painters' liiunts around Fon tatnebleau. visiting Barh'zon, where they sw the homes of Millet, Rousseau, Diaz, Barye and Jacques, spending the night In tha ra'j- of Fnntalnebleau Itself, and visiting the next day Marlotte, Montlgny, Moret and Eamoln. ,The report of the school forms a good sized brochure of 114 pages, with numer ous Illustrations. It was printed In Paris on tho .Frazler Soye presses .and Is In nil respects a very Interesting and credltab'o record of a unique educatlo-al experiment, says W. H. D. In the Boston Is no trait from the south, and the party had to proceed by compass. It was a great experience In weather that was partly perfect and partly hard, but al together enjoyable. The plan at Camp Rlverdale Is for the boys to spend tho first three or fdUr days of the week at camp with the reg ular activities and the latter part In the wooda 1 The programme Includes forestry under Mr. Kolbe of the State School of Forestry at Syracuse: scouting under Arthur E. Baker, scoutmaster; arst aid by Dr. Kllppel: woodcraft, Mr. Miner, and muslo under Mr. MoClanahan. The general direction of the camp Is under Frank a Hackett, headmaster of, River dale Country School . ' EXEMPT RHODES SCHOLARS, Prof.. Frank fedelotte of the Massa chusetts Institute of Technology, Amer ican secretary to the Rhodes trustees, announces that the University of Oxford has passed a statute granting exemption from Greek to graduates of approved American colleges and universities who may enter Oxford senior standing. This makes It possible for the first time (aside from military exemptions granted during the war) to obtain the A. B. degree from Oxford without Greek. The statute was mtroaucea Dy ur. a. at. Walker of Queen's College, who repre sented the University of Oxford on the mission from British universities which visited the United States last autumn. The result Is that Oxford Is willing to give her degree to graduates of foreign universities without Greek, while Insist ing on ins stuay oi ureeK xrom ner own undergraduates. Several months ago the Rhodes trustees announced the abandonment of the Qual ifying examination In Latin and Greek, formerly reauirea of an canaiaates ror the Rhodes scholarships, but the action of the Rhodes trustees did not of course affect the Oxford requirement .of a "suf ficient knowledge" of Greek for the A. B. degree. The requirement Is now re moved so far as graduates of approved foreign universities are concerned, and these graduates are allowed to enter at once on the work for their final honor school, devoting themselves entirely to special study of the, subject In which they will take their degree Advanced standing 'and exemption from Greek under this statute are obtained by a man on his .credentials without examina tion. AMERICAN ORIENTAL SOCIETY. In accordance with suggestions made during the war there has been arranged a Joint meeting of the Soclete Aslatlque, the Royal Astatic Society and tho Amer ican Oriental Society. The meeting will be held In London September 3-6. The dates originally set were later In tho month, but were changed tn order not to Interfere with the academic year In American colleges. The meeting will offer to Americans an excellent oppor tunity for fruitful conferences with French and British colleagues upon the various plans for greater public service which the American society .took vigor ously In hand at Philadelphia last April notably upon the. plan of establishing an American school of living Oriental languages. It Is suggested that any American members who may find It feasible to take part In this meeting send word to Charles R.

Exchange of Chile RATIFICATION by the Government of Chile and the University tt of professors and Instructors between the United States and the South Amer ican republlo formulated aby the Uni versity of California committee on his panlo relations has been effected by of ficial decree of the Government of Chile through Its minister of publlo Instruc tion, Pablo Ramirez, advices to the Uni versity of California stated. An appro priation of 112,000 Xor the coming year had been provided under the decree signed by President Sanfuentes of Chile. Both the president of the University of Chile, Domingo Amunategul, and tha minister of public Instruction nave an nounced their readlness-to recelvo as the first exchange professor from the United Slates Charles E. Chapman, Associate Professor of Hlspanlo American History In the University of California. Chtlq's official ratification of the ex change professor project marks the first definite result of plana of the late Professor H. Morse Stephens whereby the University of California was to be come a centre for exchanges of profes sors and students with the leading .His panic countries. of tha world, apd for the study of the history and contemporary problems of Spain and Portugal, and more particularly of the Hlspanlo re publics in the two continents of the Americas. It was largely due to the death of Professor Btephens that the proposed exchange of Professors Ra fael Altamlra of tho University of .i drld and Professor Herbert E. Bolton of the University of California for 1919 20 was postponed. Professor Stephens had also been instrumental tn opening discussion with a view to a series of ex changes between the University of Cali fornia and tho National University of Mexico. A committee of distinguished educa tors from the Chilean Republic headed hv Dr. Don Pedro Agulrre. arrived In Berkeley early in January of this year and proposed a series oi permanent ex changes not only 'of professors of unl vnmltiAa tint also of teachers of high schools and technical schools, Including women as well as men. Senor Agulrre's committee further proposed to make use of tho University of California as a clearing house whereby tha university nuthorlUi should arrange for all ex changes In this country. Approval of thlj nlan was announced by President BTnJamln Ide Wheeler on February 21. the banrd of regents naving votea to ac cent the Dlan on February IS. Prcst dont Chapman waa designated as the first exchange professor. At that time President Wheeler wrote to ProfV Agtitno. "I nm very glad that this arrange ment can be made. It should be mu, tually advantageous to the educational systems of the two countries,, and pro motive of good will and friendship be tween Chile, and the United States." It Is this arrangement which .by de crco of President Sanfuentes of Chile now becomes effective.

Professor Langdon of Oxford, Eng. land, has discovered that one group of the famous Nippur tablets stored at University of Pennsylvania are In rs tllty the oldest schoolbooks known to xlst.

I'dlriir to these tablets the chl'dren of 4.200 years ago were taught arithmetic, -eography, history nnd grammar last like tho children of to-day, The multiplication tables are remark nbly distinct, and In plain numerals how the Incontrovertible fuel that thrs Mmes one are three and five times oni are Ave. On one tablet the schoolboy has ben Riven a lesson In phonetic signs ow. responding to the shorthand of modarn times.
