(Editor's Note: Hiis is the eighth
of a series of articles on the present
world conflagration, its causes, con
ditions determining its outcome, the
course it is taking, the effects it will
have on our generation and those to
come and the problems and issues
created by it.)
THE SCHOOL AND EDUCATION
The two previous stories have
dealt with the social effects of the
war on communication and trans
portation, the standard of living of
the world, the degree of contact
throughout the globe' and the effects
upon marriage, the home and family
and sexual relationships.
This article, continuing the discus
sion of the broad and institutional
ized social effects of the war, con
cerns itself with the school and edu
cation. Following articles will con
tinue this treatment of the broad so
cial consequences of the present
Three Significant Consequences
At this distance from the cessaton
of hostiltiies, three very significant
results of the war seem apparent
from the point of view of education.
These are: (1) The whole level of
literacy and formal training of the
world will rise to a greater height
than hitherto known; (2) the citi
zens of the world, and especially
Americans, will become thorough
ly familiar with all the peoples, na
tions and remote parts of the. world;
and (2) the educational system and
process in America will give
a' much greater emphasis on voca
tional or practical education, the so
cial studies and to progressive or in
formal methods of instruction.
An Educated and Literate World
Previous to the war and today, the
so-called educated parts of the world
occupy scattered "spots" on the
world's surface, with the mass of
people generally throughout the
globe large illiterate, ignorant and
provincially inaware of the greater
world about them. This will be in
creasingly untrue, and rapidly so, of
the future. The great educational
systems in America, the British Em
pire, Denmark, Germany, Russia and
France will be quickly improved
and made more adequate to world as
well as national and individual
needs and conditions and will be ex
tended to include all the hemis
pheres and peoples of the universe
we know. "Die next generations of
young people and adults alike truly
"go to school" day and night every
where as they never have before.

Be QuickTo Treat
Chronic bronchitis may develop if
your cough, chest cold, or acute bron
chitis is not treated and you cannot
afford to take a chance with any medi
cine less potent than Creomulsion
which goes right to the seat of the
trouble to help loosen and expel germ
laden phlegm and aid nature to
soothe and heal raw. tender, inflamed
bronchial mucous membranes.
Creomulsion blends beech wood
creosote by special process with other
time tested medicines for coughs.
It contains no narcotics.
No matter how many medicines
you have tried, tell your druggist to
sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with
the understanding you must like the
way it quickly allavs the cough, per
mitting rest and sleep, or you are to
have your money back. (Adv.)

where the printed and spoken word
is still relatively free are going
through a process of world educa
tion which most of.them do not rec
ognize as such and which all of us
should have had long ago. In succes- j
sion such names, Prague, Dunkirk,
Oslo, Sofia, Athens, Smolensk, the
Caucasus, Stalingrad, Burma, the
Solomons, New Guinea, Bizerte, Tun
is and Turin have flashed repeated- j
ly across the front pages and the
radio. Everywhere our leaders and
our people are studying and becom
ing familiar with the kind of peo
ple and their societies and problems
throughout the entire globe.
Not the least significant situation |
in this respect is that we are giving
our young men and women, many
millions of them, an extensive course
"abroad" in all the places of the j
world in the economic, racial, geo- :
graphical and political life and sys
tems of the nations of the world. The
effect of this "education abroad" i
upon those who are "taking it" and
upon those at home is too immeas
urable and distant to be ever encom
Vocation Education Comes
"Into Its Own"
For ut least the past 25 yOars there
has been constant and wide-spread
agitation to revamp our educational
system so that every child will be
taught in addition to languages, high- \
er mathematics and fine manners .
"how to do least one thing well." Be- j
cause we have given little attention '
to the practical or utilitarian aspects ;
of education. We are today, woeful- |
ly short of the required number of ;
persons trained in at least one trade j
or business and consequently we are ;
having to carry out quick and exten- j
sive courses in practically all the j
trades and vocational necessary to :
the war effort. For years we have j
been told that our schools should not .
only teach children how to "live j
well" and "be nice" but also to be I
able to "earn a living." Following the J
war, vocational education or manual j
and commercial training will be as .
much of our public school course of j
study as have Latin, French or Al- 1
gebra. ? ?
More Emphasis to Social Studies 1
The so-called "social studies" have .
occupied such a recent and meagre i
part in our public educational sys
tem that even the number of train- ?'

od and experienced teachers In the
field of the social sciences has been
too small to meet the small place that
has been made for the social stud
