Training' for Citizenship Will
Be Emphasized.
Dr. Joseph Schafer Is Chairman of
National Committee to Prepare
Xew Course for Schools.
Aug-. 2. (Special.) Reorganization of
the courses in history and civics in
th public schools, to make them more
serviceable in training for citizenship
is a work undertaken by the National
Education association, together with j
the American Historical association and j
national board for historical service,
through a joint committee of which Dr. i
Joseph Schafer, head of the department i
of history in the University of Oregon,
is chairman. 1
Dr. Schafer ha just returned from
the national capital, where he spent
nearly ten months in the position ol
acting chairman of the historical serv
ice board.
Campaign la Begrnn.
The committee which has been work
ing on a proposed revision of -the
courses in history is the result, Dr.
Schafer said, of a request made by the
National Education association last No
vember that the national board of his
torical service appoint a committee to
review the situation.
"The full committee had a meeting in
Washington for two days at the end of
May he said. "It was a great session,
and definite agreements were reached
on a historic course of study for tne
common schools and the high school."
The board then, undertook a cam
paign among the universities. "We de
cided, "said Dr. Schafer, "that the best
way to get at the opinions of the best
teachers was to carry the matter direct
to the summer schools and among the
teachers there." He spent the next
month in visiting leading summer
schools of the middle west. The Oregon
professor spoke in Portland July 30 and
at the University summer school in
Eugene July 01.
"Everywhere the sentiment toward
the proposed changes in the history
courses was good," said Dr. Schafer.
"Our largest and most enthusiastic
conference was held at the University
of Chicago, where the teachers attend
ing showed great interest."
War Changes Teaching.
"The whole subject of history teach
ing needed revision on general prin
ciples," said Dr. Schafer. "Then the
war interposed and has affected trie
teaching of history more than that ot
any other subject except geography. It
is desired to intensify every argument
for better training for citizenship. Ad
ditional emphasis will be placed on
recent and contemporary hstory. The
war stands as an important fact that
one would not think of failing to bring
historical study down late enough to
include it. The committee agreed that
there should be no gap between the
time reached in the pupil's study of
history and the time when he steps
out into the world of affairs.
"The whole history curriculum will
have to be reshaped.
Citizennhlp Training Chosen.
"In framing a plan for recasting,
some principles worth while were
adopted : Kirst, a complete round of
history and civics should be given in
the first six grades, to catch all the
students with a certain amount of citi
zenship training. About half of the
students in the schools drop out at the
end of the sixth grade. Second, the
junior hisrh school period seventh,
eiprhth and ninth grades should be
utilized, because the student then is in
the best stage, psychologically, to ab
sorb it to give the student an entire
view of world history on its human
side. Our general theme in these three
grades is American history in its world
setting. Ti the ninth grade civics is
"The last three years in the senior
high school the theme changes apain
to the modern world. In those high
school years the student can handle
this history as a civic matter on a high
plane. A hieh school student oujrht to
be considered more or less of a leader
and trained along these lines."
In the past Lr. Schafer said there
has been too much disintegration in
the separation of civics and economics
from history.
A meeting of the American historical
association is to be held in Cleveland,
and the committee on revision of these
- courses will meet there. Dr. Schafer
will attend the meeting.

HOOD RIVER. Or., Aus- 2. (Special.'
The Hood River Apple & Vinegar Co.
Is offering srowers $10 a ton for cull
apples for vinegar and cider stock. The
highest price paid for such stocks .on
previous years was JS. Growers are
permitted to select cooking apples from
their cider stocks and sell to process
and canning concerns for more than $12
a ton. Because of the high quality of
the crop of all parts of the valley, the
cull product will be of smaller per
centage this year than on former
HOOD RIVER. Or.. Aug. 2. (Spe
cial.) While representatives of Brit
ish importing firms here the past week
express strong optimism over the 191!
apple deal, uncertainty on the part of
the British food ministry, it is stated,
makes the present purchase of export
apples purely a speculation.
The past week northwestern sales
agencies'have received from the United
States bureau of markets requests for
prices of sales that have been con
firmed. It Is believed that this action on the
part of the government results from re
quests for information from the Brish
food ministry. England, it is eaid,
hopes to escape the condition that pre
vailed last year, when the markets
were flooded with poorer stocks that
sold at the maximum fixed price.
Under the existing exchange a pound
sterling is no longer worth $4.S6, but
has declined to $4.60. Under the con
trolled price of apples the maximum for
a box of apples, under the rules that
have been applied, would be $4.55. If
apples were purchased at $2, f. o. b.
northwestern shipping points, the max
imum profit to the exporter, it is
pointed out. would not exceed 55 cents
hest'under existing conditions. And if cars
were iced or neater service were em
ployed the profit would be cut to a
negligible percentage.
Respective items of cost in delivering
a box of apples to England are given
as follows: Transcontinental freight, 75
cents; handling charges. 10 cents; ocean
freight. S3 cents; insurance. 5 cents,
and dockage and incidental charges, 25

As you know, most men ar simply not "up on" the appli

their business to be.
Take that most irksome of all household duties the family
washing. Where's the man who fully realizes what a Mon

The most effective argument in his ease is the one that
presents the matter in the light of plain, everyday business
sense. Show him that this antiquated, unhealthful wash
board drudgery wastes time and costs moiiri.
Begin by letting us arrange to have the KDKN demon
strated for you. We'll do this gladly at our showroom .
or we'll send "a machine to your home to work on some of
vour own washings just as you say and without trying to
obligate you to anything whatsoever.
Then, you will see for yourself what a source of comfort
and economy a really efficient washer can be: for. while
there are a number of them made to look like the. EDE,
we can show you the vital differences in a Jiffy. You will
be surprised at the EDES'S simplicity and still more sur
prised at the amount and kind of work it turns out. The
average family wash is on the line by 9:30 or X0 o'clock, and
all the pieces filmy, heavy or extra dirty are washed
cleaner than any human hands could possibly get them.
