The first meeting of the Eastern South Dakota county and city sup erintendents conference was held yesterday afternoon at the normal auditorium. The morning was spent in visiting the training school and interviewing prospective teachers, The program of the afternoon be gan at 2:30. The meeting whs opened by the singing of several songs with Mr. Eversman as director. $. A. Bixler of the training school opened the afternoon discussion with a lecture on the "Psychology of Silent Read ing," taking up the investigations made in this subject: the develop ment and use of the alphabet the leaders in the investigations and the great aim of present methods in reading, namely, to teach recogni tion by wholes rather than in parts. This aim was well illustrated by a second grade readinu class directed by Miss Baumgardntr, also of the training school. The main lecture of the afternoon was delivered by Dr. G. M. Wilson, of Ames, Iowa. This was the first of a scries of five lectures to be given by Dr. Wilson during the ses sions. Dr. Wilson's subject for this! lecture was "The Problem: of the! Curriculum." He said that the great world problems of finance, politics, race, moral, and natural resources must be solved and to do this a new type of teaching and material Is nec essary. The course of study must be changed and attention given to these things. Dr. Wilson aaid, "The wealth of the world Is human, the battle ground should be the heart of the child. The heart of the child is not reached in schoci, he Is not taught to think out and read of the world, but i£ taught a few facta. Educa tion Is larger than facts. You can't make a child bright, but you can change his heart. An enormous waste has been shown in past curri culum work. We get in a certain line of effort and tread in the same place. We want a workshop, but have been making a store house." Dr. Wilson closed his lecture with this uestion: "Is it possible to work out a set of principles as a basis for a curriculum?" The second of n series of talks by Dr. Wilson was given at the high school auditorium last evening. He spoke on "What are adult stand ards.?" and "Should we expect our children to go beyond adult stand ards?" We have gone too far in teaching merely for mental discip line. We have pushed the children way beyond their comprehension and have shown them no need for what they are learning. He said that we have taught fanatically and he de firiecf a fanatic a^ one who redoubles his effort after.. Caretting his aim. There is'ho ad^afttjage In going be yond adult jafaiidards, for, after leaving school# .lhe,.childr.en. will fall back to wliat .they "heed to know. What are adult Standards? Mr. Wilson Investigated this in arithme tic in 23 communities in Iowa and two large cities from other states, lie found that out of the addition problems one-half had two places, about one-third three places, the rest falling in four and five places with no problem beyond six. A study or Marshalltown and Sioux City prov ed that two addends are the most common. The multiplication prob lems seldon had a multiplier larger than two places. Out of nearly 2, 000 fractions 1-2 was used in two thirds of the problems. Three fourths one-fourth and such simple fi actions were used in most of the others. He found that out of 21, 000 problems 1-3 are multiplication, 1-5 addition, 1-7 subtraction, 1-8 di vision ar.d the remaining 1-4 divid ed among a few other processes. He did not find a single case of G. C. D., L. C. M., cube root or some of the rest of the problems found in our arithmetics of today. He closed his lecture giving the purposes of education health, voca tional efficlencq, social and civic ef ficiencq, preparation for leisure, and knowledge, and reminding his au dience that all teaching should have one or more of these purposes as an objective. We must fit children with tools which they will find nec essary in adult life. 0 Victory Notes To Be Called In Washington, Feb. 10.—Announce ment has been made by Secretary Mellon that the $400,000,000 out standing of ta*-exempt 3 3-4 per cent ictory notes had been called for Redemption at par on June 15, and that the conversion privilege of"Vic tdry notes would be suspended" be ginning February &.
