The talks on Music were very edi?
fying ami enjoyable, ami il was most
gratifying to see these young girls
address a meeting of grown-ups with
ail the ease and sang fluid of old
experienced speakers. Their pa?
pers showed careful study of the
subject in hand, and hoth composi?
tion ami dictation were faultless.
The musical part of the program

brevity in the high ipiality of the
numbers. The snug, "Roses Every?

ano accompaniment, wns "a gem of
purest ray serene."

Charles Steinmetz Gives His j
Ideas on Education?Our
Methods Crude, He Thinks
National supervision of America's
school system is advocated by Dr.
Charles I*. Steinmetz, celebrated |
consultant engineer of the General
Electric Company.
Such centralization, he believes,
would raise educational standards
far beyond what they are today and
make possible a thorough education
for every child.
Principle! Crude
"In basic principles," said he, "it
is my opinion that American educa?
tional institutions ate operating
along the right lines. lint they are
crude in their methods. This is per?
haps because they are new only a
Kin-ration or possibly two genera?
tions old.'.'
Dr. Seiumetz is well qualified to |
criticize scbools. His parents en?
dowed him with an extensive edlicn
I tion. His education in German |
schools ami colleges was, us a mailer;

by the school experiences of his two
The doctor has never married, but
he has an adopted son. The son
grew up, married, ami it is with the
son's family that Dr. Steinmetz
makes his home.
National Control
"American schools should all be
,' placed under national control," con?
tinued the doctor, as he leaned
across the desk in his library, "even
though they he paid for locally. Then
schools in one state would be on a
par with those in another. Gradua?
tion from any high school would per?
mit ii student to college without re?
gard to credits or the ncessity for
en trance examinations.
"Consider the subject of history as
an example. A pupil selects Ameri?
can history because that gives him
one credit. He chooses ancient his?
tory because that gives him another
credit. As a result he learns nothing
of history between the fall of Rome
ami the landing of the Pilgrims. Vet
he ami bis parents and teachers are
satisfied because he has acquired two
credits. Everybody seems to forget
that education, rather than credits,
is the real reason for going to |
Play Element"
The -widely heralded "play ele-j
merit" in education is not wholly ap?
proved by Dr. Steinmetz. Although
favoring anything that will develop
and hold the interest of pupils, he
