It is noteworthy that two of the main Points made in its report concern the importance of re appraisal and experimentation. This strikingly underscores the state of flux in which education. Especially Public school education now finds itself. The commission report was written by John w. Gardner president of the Carnegie corporation. I be urges that experimentation be fostered at All Levels from the first Grade through College. He also Calls for a thoroughgoing reappraisal of both elementary and secondary school subjects and How they Are taught. There is nothing surprising in this Outlook. To a considerable extent it reflects the ferment which has existed in Public school education during the past several years in educational circles at the National level and in communities All Over the nation there has been much Lay and professional debate As to what should be taught and How it should be taught. New method and approaches Are being tried in mathematics for example in chemistry and physics. Here is a lot of experimentation with such teaching aids As television language training Booths question and answer machines and the like. In general this business of taking a hard look at curriculum of trying new ways of doing things in education is Good. Vet through it All. One thing must be kept in mind. The purpose of this reappraisal and experimentation is not change for the Sake of change but improvement. I he objective should be to retain the Best from the past and build upon it. Diamond mess averted major league baseball has just survived its worst hassle in a couple of decades the american league finally has expanded to 10 teams and Walter of Malley president of the los Angeles dodgers has emerged in a Field of financial Clover. Concessions by o Malley made the americans expansion to los Angeles possible but More than altruism prompted his action. The dodgers collected $325,000 from the California american league entry As Balm for having their territory invaded. The american leagues also must play next year in Wrigley Field with Only 20.-500 capacity and not move into of Malleye a big new Park until 1962. And when they do move in. The rent will be $200,000 or seven and a half per cent of the receipts. At the annual major league meeting in St. Louis a code designed to prevent any future arguments Over expansion was adopted. That is Good. But As commissioner Ford Brick put it. Baseball narrowly missed a a the worst mess in history Washington a prior to the los Angeles democratic Cun vent Ion. W Hen Jack Kennedy was scrambling for delegates. Jack s father Joseph Patrick held a breakfast at Hampshire House in new York attending the breakfast were Carmine de Sapio loss of tammany Hall Mike Pendergast democratic state chairman of new York congressman Charlie Buckley a grower in tam Manv Hall Joe Sharkey. Democratic Brooklyn Leader David Lawrence governor of Pennsylvania and Jake Arvey. Demo Era tie Boss of Chicago chief purpose of the meeting was old Joe Kennedy a demand that his son Jack be nominated on the first ballot but de Sypio and Pendergast with the Power of delivering new Yorkus biggest bloc of delegates stalled and talked finally Joe Kennedy Laid Down the Law. A i insist that i get a commitment now a he said a a we la go on the second ballot a replied Pendergast and 1>e Sapio. A there won t be any second ballot and you two Guys Are through Quot announced Kennedy. Last week congressman Charlie Buckley met with the presi ident elect at his Georgetown Home. Next Day Pendergast and de Sapio got word that they were through. The word came at a Biltmore hotel luncheon attended by Carmine Charlie Buckley and Joe Sharkey. As Charlie Buckley expressed it a this is Mike Pendergast will be replaced As Demoi Ratic state chairman by Peter Crotty of Buffalo a conservative Democrat. It was not a matter of revenge because in the end tammany had voted for Kennedy no the first ballot but the president elect had let it be known in no Uncertain terms that he was fed up with the bickering of old guard democrats and new Deal democrats m new York state. The new leaders would have to make Pence with a mrs Roosevelt nod former gov Herbert Uschman who have been to veg to depose Carmine. A i was never so mad in my life a president elect Kennedy had said a was when i wanted to get mrs. Roosevelt and gov. Lichman on a television program under the auspices of new York democrats and Carmine de Sapio dragged his feet i had to Call him personally to no that mrs Roosevelt and gov in he Man note the Man who held the two warring new York far Lions together with hairpins and scotch tape during the presidential Campaign was William Walton a Georgetown d artist living near the Kennedy. Jack asked him after the Campaign was Over. A what did you use morphine or heroin a no Ellis one Man who did not drag his feet for Kennedy was Frank b. Ellis of new Orleans former democratic National commit tee Man. When the Dixie rats started an a Independent elector movement Quot in Louisiana to keep Southern electors a pledged it was Ellis who Defeated them. I is More than anything else broke the Hack of the Dixie Erat uprising and gave solid strength to the democratic party in such doubtful states As South Carolina and Georgia which Kennedy eventually earned in november if the Dixie rat uprising had not been broken in Louisiana the it electoral votes Kennedy is getting from the deep South Ern slates of South Carolina Georgia Arkansas. Alabama and Louisiana might not have been in i earner and the november verdict might have been different. Frank Ellis the southerner who led this fight against great Odds is a Nephew of Hoke Smith of Georgia who served As Sec rotary of the Interior in the Grover Cleveland Cabinet and was one of the first southerners to emerge after the difficult Days of Becon struck Ion to co operate in the Federal government Ike s Dollar worries in private talks president Eisenhower has swung just As drastically away from his a. S. Prestige is High Quot statement As he swung toward it in Public speeches during the presidential Campaign in conferring with president elect Kennedy re Henlly. This was the chief subject he emphasized. Ike a argument was that Kennedy should hop on the Drain of the Dollar crisis immediately after he got into office. He told Kennedy that Secretary of the Treasury Anderson now had paved the Way by his trip to Bonn and Paris that Kennedy could we be got to keep the Fine print in mind press sessions on to president elect Kennedy plans to have occasional press conferences on live television at prune viewing time in the evening thus exposing himself to the appraising eyes of millions. 1 his is a step Coward providing the Public with a better grasp of presidential capacity responsibility and reaction. I he plan should not be dismissed As a publicity stunt. It represents an improvement Over past televised press conferences which were tape recorded with selected portions released. Televising of the entire press conference will put Kennedy on his Mettle and impose certain restraints on the reporters. The latter will or at least should feel impelled to stick to important questions and not let their awareness of the Large unseen audience inspire them to showmanship. If a bit of grandstanding is occasionally apparent however we Hope that watchers will be charitable. A a hamming a is an almost Universal trait and newsmen Are not immune.

Kennedy listened carefully was noncommittal but a Pieria live. Some of Kennedy a advisers however feel that Secretary of the Treasury Anderson one of the most sincere and likable members of the Cabinet has gone psychotic Over the balance of payments worry. They consider the situation important hut not As serious As Anderson indicates. The Secretary of the Treasury has taken such gloomy re a girls with him to Europe that the effect on our nato Alliance has been unfortunate enold he disastrous. It has had the Fol lowing repercussions 1 it has played into the hands of the Moseph propagandists who Are now telling West europeans a you can t depend on the americans they re going to pull out of # 2. It has played into the hands of general de gnome who in now telling european friends a bather than depend on the United states Vou should rely on France and build up a United Stales of Europe a in other words Anderson is writing a record in the Elos ing Days of the Eisenhower administration which could raise trouble for the new president.
