REED ADDRESSES "If you can put thinking into action, you will get the highest satisfaction of life. The only way in which a human being can be educated is by some form of human activity. At the adolescent period the teacher is working with the most malleable stuff that can be worked, thus teaching should be considered as a spiritual art," said O. L. Superintendent of Louisville schools, in his Inspiring talk in chapel Tuesday, on "High School Teaching as a Life Work." He also said: "The great aims of education are, first, the physical education, education for home life, and the moral and religious education. We all learn sooner or. later that money is only worth what you can exchange for it in terms of satisfaction." In speaking further of the high school education, he said that the high school has an unique Individuality in that it is a survival of the old classical academy. Superintendent Reed ended his talk by paying tribute to the classical training given in the high schools, and making a plea that more University students take up teaching as a life work, calling it the noblest profession in the world. Mr. George R. Larry, University of Wisconsin, and of the American Red Cross, closed the chapel exercises by making a short talk, saying that people in the United States are s continuously and seriously 111. of the illness is unnecessary, and could be prevented if the boys' and girls were educated to care for their bodies and to obey the laws of. health and hygiene. He closed by asking that we give our support to the Red Cross, which is now doing its greatest work, in the time of peace, by teaching health and hygiene in the schools, and in various kinds of social work.
