He spoke particularly of Dutch
and German experimental schools.
Of especial interest concerning
the largest experimental school at
Amsterdam was the fact that the
school head neither maintained an
office nor kept records. Dr. Schor

pupil) la dealing with all the ma
chinery of school work."
While Holland's problems are
different from those in this coun
try, the, Dutch schoolmaster cer
tainly knows "what happens to
Mary," Schoriing said.
The German schools have un
dergone a tremendous change in
objectives since the war, turning
away from subject matter, author
ity, conformity and family and
social status to the new terms of
pupil activity, freedom, emphasis
on attitudes and emotional sta
bility, Schoriing told tl-e teachers.
Experimental schools In Eur
ope are now at about the same
stage as regards scientific experi
mentation as was Dewey 8 work
of the '90s, Schoriing said. At one
phase in his talk he said: "A
whole nation may go wrong on
its educational objectives."
Schoriing also touched upon the
youth movement in Germany, for
that goes hand in hand with an
understanding of the educational
experiment there, he said. The
youth movement, with Its protests
against the domineering attitude
of parents, religion, city life,
liquor and tobacco, is still a most
important factor in that country,

principal shippers in Salem asking
the amount of their yearly ton

and potential use they make of
the Willamette river.
This is the third successive year

Secret Told by
"Sincerity is one of the biggest
things to remember in writing
your letters," asserted President
Carl G. DoSiey. ot Willamette uni
versity, ia an address before the
county teachers' institute Mon
day. Dr. Doney spoke on "The
Lost Art of Letter Writing."
"Many put on a style of writ
ing which is different from
themselves. 'Be yourself!' is the
cry .ot authorities on good letter
writing," he continued.
Reading letters is much more
interesting and educational if the
personality ot the writer Is in
cluded. If the writing U "cut and
dried." the reading might as well
not be done, for the interest of
the reader will be lacking. Dr.
Doney recommends these rules
for the writing of articles, books
and college themes.
