MATERIAL IS AT HANT* I Hoover and Ciaxton Furnish Some Excellent Idea* for Work Along This Una. School officials In Keokuk have re ceived letters from President WilBon and Commissioner Ciaxton urging the expansion of the school program to include national issues. Following is the president's letter: The White House, Washington. To School Officers: The war is bringing to the minds of our people a new •ap preciation of the problems of national life and a deeper understanding of the meaning and aims of democracy. Matters which heretofore have seem ed commonplace and trivial are seen hTa truer light. The urgent demand for the production and proper distri bution of food and other national re sources has made us aware of the close dependence of individual on in dividual and nation on nation. The effort to keep up social and industrial -organizations in spite of the with drawal of men for the army has re vealed the extent to which modern life has become complex and special ized. These and other lessons of the war must be learned quickly if we are In telligently and successfully to defend our institutions. When the war Is over we must apply the wisdom which we have acquired i* purging and en nobling the life of the world. In these vital tasks of acquiring a broader view of human possibilities the common school must have a large part. I urge that teachers and other school officers increase materially the time and attention devoted to instruc tion bearing directly on the problems of community and national life. Such a plea is in no way foreign to the spirit of American public educa tion or of existing practice. Nor is it a plea for a temporary enlargement of the school program appropriate merely to the period of the war. is a plea for a realization in public education of the new emphasis which the war has given to the ideals of democracy and to the broader conceptions of na tional life. In oMer that there may be definite material at hand with which the at once expand their teaching, I have asked Mr. Hoover and Commissioner Ciaxton to organ ize the proper agencies for the prepar ation and distribution of suitable les sons for the elementary grades and for the high -school clases. Lessons thus snggested will serve the double purpose of illustrating in a concrete way what can b« undertaken in the schools and of stimulating teachers in all parts of the country to formu late new and appropriate materials drawn directly from the communities in which they live. Sincerely yonrs, •WOODROW WILSON. FOUR CLAIMS ARE REVERSED District Board Exempts Men Previ ously Certified for Service In the National Army.
