Our One Most Vital Business R as long as I can remem ber Ive had the idea that edu cation is mankinds one most im portant business Thats a sweep ing statement but Id like i known right at the outset of thi visit with you that Im not indulg ing in pretty talk Im not ex aggerating I mean what I say literally But what about religion I can hear somebody asking And my reply is that religion when not

half fill the bellies of the two anda half billion plus human beings on our old sphere somebody will inquire And to this my answer be that without education and all of its byproducts human be ings would subsist or exist on our planet at a level not too much higher than beasts of the fielc or forest That condition is also much too closely approached in some corners of our world For some reason

of their 10th year in school The report is certain to touch off sharp repercussions and controversy among American educators and politicians L G Derthick U S educa tion commissioner said in re leasing the report it posed a challenge to every American to reexamine the extent to which we support our Demo cratic system of education He said the report should challenge the country to take new interest in meeting school and college needs Rep Elizabeth Kee RNY said the report brought out the spectacular advances in Rus sias education system and con trasted this with the sorry at titude of Americans
