Extended tests conducted bv Prof.
Edward L. Thourndyke, of Columbia
university, and others have proved
that the adult, until he reaches 50
or more, is generally as capable of
learning anything from simple
games to foreign languages as a
child. Mr. Stearns points out. The
adult can change his habits, his
profession or job. his pleasures and
his entire state of life, often to his
advantage, while in his middle
years The axiom to the effect that
you can’t teach an old dog new

have found, that most of us stop

“There we have the problem of
our arrested development in a nut

ticle. “Although a thousand and
one reasons are given by boys who
leave school and go to work, the
one big underlying reason Is that
they don’t want to go to school
any longer. Other things are of
more interest than continuing mere
mental development. They want to
make use of the knowledge they al
ready have, in securing money, ad
venture. and immediate place in the

The development of the normal

halted by himself merely because
he is unwilling to make the neces
