CONRADI One of the saddest things ham happened on the Florida State Campus with the death of Mrs. Edward Conradi. That this should have happened in such a whirl of activity and readiness for the Thanksgiving on the campus deepens the sorrow. A day that meant so much joy has instead turned out to be shadowed by the loss of the wife of out" beloved ]president. The ~tudents feel the loss with the keen- est sympathy as expressed in the resolu- tions passed by the student body as a whole. It is with the utmost sorrow and feeling that they share the misfortune of those who surwve her. 0 EARNING AND LEARNING "As its sixth term begins Commonwealth College has modified its constitution to per- mit student parti'cipation in school govern- ment. All third year students are now taken into the association which owns and cont, rols this unique institution in the Ar- kansas hills. At the present time there are as many students as faculty members in this governing body. "There are no deans or regents to act upon the 'recommendation' of these stu- dents and teachers. Their say is final, whether 4t concerns conduct or breakfast pancakes. A Ph.D., when he has complet- ed a year in residence at the college, is given the same authority as a country boy, no matter what his previous schooling, who has done two years of satisfactory work in the college. And by satisfactory work is meant not a high average of grades nor an attendance record but simply con- tinuous progress in those lines of study se- lected by the student and a certain reason- able efficiency in chopping wood, building nou,~e:; or washing overalls." O VISUAL EDUCATION It is probable that the grade }school teacher's load will soon be lightened by the use of films in teaching T.he Eastman Kodak company, acting with the National Educational association, has just complet- ed an experiment that seems to demon- strate conclusively the superiority of the new method over the old. In geography a thirty-five per cent gain was registered by tile pupils taught by means of films, and a fifteen per cent gain in general science. Approximately 5500 children were taught with tihn~ and 5500 more were taught the :~,ame material without the aid of motion pictures, in public schoos scattered over twelve cities A 500 word report has just been com- pleted by Dr. Ben D. Wood of Cotumbia and Dr. Frank Freeman of the University of Chicago, directors of the experiment. "In this experiment," the report said, "we have studied the films not as a pans- eea to be substituted for present instrumen- talities of the schools, nor ~ a means to: revolutionize the aims of education, but as an addition to the present pedagogical de- vices of the schools which may help in the attainment of currently acepted goals."' As One mi.ghtexpect, a majorlty of the~ teachers and scheoI officials reported that theilse of classroom films had been "more effective in arousing and sustaining the children's interest, in improving the quart- tity and quality of'their reading, and in aid- ing them to correlate features of the lessons with personal experiences and community cond itions." o OSCAR WILDE SAYS "Death and vulgarity ar~ the only two facts that pine cannot explain away." "To look wise is quite'as good as under- taking a thing and very much easier." "People who go in for being consistent have just as many moods as othei's have. The only difference is that their moods are rather meaningleSs." CRACKLINGS Some Pert Renmrks That Are Pe tlaent Our editor in her leading editorial last week makes this earnest request: "---that evmT student come out a hundred per cent strong and support its own publica- tion." Dear Editor, you can't do that. The Social Campus committee, as Flor- entine will call it, is to bring us up in the way we should go. If it is to be by exam- ple then-. If your best friend's head has a decided list to the right, she's been reading Dr. Rogers' perpendicular writing. Dissipation brings shadows under one's eyes; cold weather, under one's chin.
