EDTJCATION TOPICS OF SIGNIFICANCE
The week — S'unday, Noveanber 5, through Saturday,
November 31 — is American Education Week. It is the
time wihen the National Education Association brings the
policies and purposes of American education before the
people of the nation for consideration. It is a time of con
centrated emphasis upon the nation’s schools; and since
its founding in 1921, the observance has experienced a
tremendous growth in significance and results.
The program for the 1939 observance of American
Education Week is built around the theme “Education
For the American Way of Life” or “The Purposes of Edu
cation in American Democracy. ’ ’ The program emphasizes
certain vital issues in American education which are
especially worthy of public attention just now.
The topics are:
The Place of Religion in Our Democracy.
Education for Self-Realization.
Education for Human Relationships.
Education for Economic Efficiency.
Education for Civic Responsibility.
Cultivating the Love of Learning.
Education for Freedom.

On Friday evening at 8:.'i0 in the
Iteynolds Auditorium ' The Little
Theatre of Winston-Salom is present
ing Thornton Wilder’s ‘‘Onr Town,”
the Pulitzer Prize Winner play of
19.S8. “Our Town” tells of the real
drama that takes place in a small
New England town, where nothing
ever happehs to make headline news.
It is a simple play, beautifully wri1>,
ten, full of liuinan interest and good
In the play no scenery at all is
used. The stage is set with props.
Two step ladders are used to repr(5-
sent different buildings in the town.
Although the wist is a non-pro
fessional one, The Ijittle Theatre
felt that it was more worthwhile to
try to produce a good play than to
si>end their time and effort on one of
less importance and fame.

Miss Hanes Takes
Us To Australia
On Thursday evening we had the
pleasure of taking a twelve thous
and mile trip without moving from
our chairs in the lecture room of
the library. Our most attractive
and efficient guide was Miss Nona
Hanes o( this city.
After the three tliousand mile trip
from Winston-Salem to San Fran
cisco, which distance we covered iu
a word or two, we soon found our
selves on board our liner heading
for the Hawaiian Islands. We were
greeted there by the official band
and sextet singing “Aloha,’’ and
fragrant leis made of gorgeously til-
ored flowers were placed around our
nci-ks. During our brief trip in
Honolulu, we stopped at a scliool and
talked with the children, noticing
the strange mixture of races present
in the inhabitants of' Hawaii.
Sp.icn is too short to tell of the
iiiteipsl ing people and beautiful
scenery lliat wo saw at Pago Pago,
Samoa, ;iml the Fiji Islands.
Finally, after three or four weeks.
w(; arrived “down under” at Aus
tralia - that strange, peaceful, and
beautiful land where the summer
asts from Xovember to March, where
the })eople go north for a warmer
cliinale, and whore the colors in na
ture arc beyond compare. Wo were
interested to learn that tho popula
tion is 97 per cent British and that
tho jieople follow tho British custom
ot afternoon tea. However, the
Australians look to tho Americans
for their ideas in clothes, and the
sports attire worn here last summer
can now' bo found in the cities of
Australia. We were all perhaps a
little envious of their custom of
stopping all work every Saturday
at noon, so that everyone might
spend the afternoon at the beaches.
Although Australia is only one
hundiroa and fifty years old, its cuIt
ture and civilization surpass our
own in some respects. Thiere is no
