"jump" to Mineola, Major Spatz, who
was not ready, la said to have re

BOISE. Idaho, Oct. 12. (Special.)
Americanism and physical culture will
be given special attention In the
schools of this state during the pres
ent year, according to Dr. E. A. Bry

Public health, vocational education

and more strongly than ever to the
fundamental doctrines of our con

Regarding the necessity of giving
time and attention to physical edu
cation and public health. Commis
sioner Bryan says:
"The lesson of the war is a warn
ing and a hint. While in theory.
therefore, our education aimed at the
education and health of the body as
well as the mind, in practice we have
fallen far short of our duty. In har
mony with the national programme,
the schools will give much more atten
tion to hygiene and to the training
of the body. Schools are urged to
provide means for weighing and
measuring the body development of
pupils: to provide a more complete
programme and facilities for super
vised play and bodily development
and to give more attention to school
and community health."
With regard to the importance of
vocational education. Commissioner
Bryan says: "The development of our
Smith-Hughes programme is the most
striking feature of this, but the work
reaches far beyond. More and more,
the schools must connect up with the
life the children are presently to live
and the work they are to do. By the
socializing of education is meant that
the school is not to confine Its ac
tivities merely to the teaching of cer
tain set branches and texts, but is to
be an active living force in the entire
community, the center of Its life and
aspirations. The health of the com
munity through protective means and
public employment, co-operation in
agriculture betterment through boys'
nd girls' clubs and exhibits, will In
dicate the direction of school functions."
