Logansport Press (Newspaper) - October 5, 1951, Logansport, Indiana Weather GOVERNMENT FORECAST Partly cloudy cooler today rain by Saturday LO Only Local Morning Paper Serving Cass Carroll Pulaski Miami Fulton White Counties VOL 31 No 95 NEA TELEPHOTOS LOGANSPORT INDIANA FRIDAY OCTOBER 5 1951 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE FIVE CENTS George E SOKOLSKY These Days DOWN TO FUNDAMENTALS The word news gives tho impression that what is reported has something to do with the new the exceptional the novel the different Thus some believe that i divorce is better news than a marriage because it is more or that a picture of a half-clothed starlet Is terrifically interesting and exciting No such photograph attract the manent interest nor the able beauty of Whistler's ther We have also been taught in this trade that names make news that the more names one tions the more interesting the story In fact some newsworthy characters are so anxious to be mentioned that even unfavorable comment is preferable to none at all They hire press agents lo make certain that they are no matter why Yet there is much more to re- port upon than the mere listing of What for instance so important about the silly sal who so barily manages her life that she runs through three or four marriages in a Perhaps would stay put if she were not encouraged in her escapades hy being made a celebrity for her sins THIS OF COURSE is a ter of opinion on which many differ but what I ani searching for is new? which explains to ny son and yours why their world is so contused why years of their have been captured by war Why must they be at war or ready lo be called up again? Who got them That is the re- porter's job these days There are dynamic forces that move swiftly and decisive events that require analysis and under- standing For instance Dr les Malik of Lebanon looking out upon our Western world once There is a general weakening of moral fiber One gains the that the great fund of moral strength which has been handed down from the tears and labors oC the ages is not being creatively replenished There is thus a terrifying wastage of substance Quality is in eclipse Quantity and size minate UNIVERSITIES and col- leges face this problem both as a cultural and financial one at this Many ot them permitted themselves the luxury of the of Rights which was as much a subsidy for schools as it provided aid to former soldiers They expanded to accept ed attendance They took on tional staff often not of the quality and maturity of those who had slowly established themselves as scholars by achievement in general or particular fields In the lower schools the de- generation of quality set in long before in the growth of what is generally called progressive cation and in the elimination of such specific subjects as history and civics the lative subject called the social sciences having been substituted BUT THE VERY WORST de- fect in general school education from the standpoint of quality is the assumption that children must remain at school often up to IS years of age whether they are able to knowledge or not and that none may be held back no matter how stupid first be- cause it is anti-social to punish the lazy the idle and the petent and secondly because un- less whole classes are pushed ahead there can be no seats for the oncoming classes Thus for education is ted for ship mere attendance Some col- leges are correcting these defects by stiffening the required courses during the first two years Another check on the exaltation of the stupid is the special ex- amination of smart boys in con- with the draft I ONCE HEARD A mother object to giving the smart boys Increased opportunity on the grounds that it was undemocratic of course learning has never been democratic only one totle having been produced in 4.000 years an Army is not related to equality but to special abilities finely trained and cap- able of utilization of the precise moment of necessity Quality is always rare but it is always worth the effort There Continued en
