to the Smithsonian Institute. This was
where we saw gowns that were worn
by wives of Presidents to Inaugural
Balls. It was fascinating to see the
laces and materials each woman wore.
It wcidd take several days to see llic
many things on display.

Dr. Vivian Mason, who is Public
Relations Consultant in Norfolk, Vir
ginia, spoke to the college family
and friends during the assembly, April
16, on “We The People”.
“The phrase ‘We The People’ refers
to all people in all walks of life,” de
clared the speaker. Each person has
a responsibility, and a teacher has
the greatest responsibility of all. A
teacher is the most important person
in the world. We must be concerned
about the quality of education and
must strive to be good teachers. The
world needs good teachers who will
be able to develop the minds of chil
dren and enable them to compete with
children of other races.
She further stated that the launch
ing of the Russian satellite turned a
microscopic light on American edu
cation. In contrasting American and
Russian schools, she stated that Amer
ican schools have many extra- cur
ricular activities in which students
spend a great deal of their time that
should be spent academically. On the
other hand, the Russian children at
tend school mainly to learn the mat
erial between the covers of books.
In her opinion extra curricular activi
ties in American schools should be
cut down where they will be sub
ordinate to academic work.
She further stated that we must
make learning the most important
thing in our lives.
