process in the past decade than in any other period since we in country accepted the responsibility for making every citizen literate said Dr Mabel Newcomer sor of Economics at Vassar Col- lege to members of the American Association of University Women holding their State Division ence at Hood College over the past weekend Dr Newcomer discussed eral Arts Education in a Era on Saturday afternoon as her part of the two-day program of the organization which chose as their convention topic Education Around the World Friday evening Dr J Russell Andrus acting chief of the tion Division of the Foreign tions Administration discussed his field of work At the Saturday business session Mrs Alexander Lewis member of the Frederick Branch announced her resignation as second president Elected to fill the tion was Dr Anne H Matthews Salisbury Other officers elected included Mrs Elizabeth Thomas Annapolis treasurer Mrs John E Dietz Silver Spring recording reelected Mrs William H Maltbie state president presided Mrs William R is president of the host Frederick branch Continuing her discussion of the liberal arts education problems Dr Newcomer said they were partly due to the unusual period of change and uncertainty which makes us less sure than normally of where we are going and how to get there and partly because there has been a tremendous increase in the ber of students both in high schools and colleges not only has there been an increase in the job of educators but a change in the characteristics of those to be educated Students are a more group than formerly and they come from all social and economic groups for now she ex- a family does not have to be wealthy to educate children Reasons for students entering colleges the speaker reported as finding under conditions where dents felt free to talk included a large proportion of men who come for professional training and training and many who feel it is the right place To meet the right people and for business assets Women she said are less tive in their reasons for higher cation saying thai a profession is the last thing most have in their minds today It is more or less a period of waiting for future events such as marriage and many con- sider it a good hunting ground and that the degree itself is a social asset However Dr Newcomer said that regardless of their purposes many of the students get interested in learning after they start classes Since there is a problem of what to offer and what is needed for the present as well as the future and since the idea of what is necessary differs among educators Dr comer said it is important to get an appropriate balance between facts i and In conclusion Dr Newcomer offered as a partial solution to educators to begin to think by accepting students own goals and I to train them to learn for I selves by teaching techniques of writing and speaking effectively i In addition to Dr Andrus at the Friday session speakers included I Dr Janet Howell Clark re- marked
