As of Wednesday of this week, three of the six full-time campus center. summer turnkeys ,had quit their posts, and at least two others are considering the same move. Those who have resigned include Dieter Haag, Mark Lederman, and David Kardish, who unanimously cite disenchantment with the new campus center board asthe primary <basis for th.eir resignation. In a statement made monday, Haag said, in reference to the federation executive, that the campus center has become “a playground for amateur politicians - and poor ones at that.. ” He went on to say that this attitude indicates “a complete disregard for the people that have in the past devoted a large amount of their time to the furthering of ideals and ideas to make the cam-
pus center a place for everyone to enjoy.” Burko, however, feels that the turnkeys have failed in these stated aims. “The campus center board reshuffle was,” he said, “unfortunately political in nature, and maybe even bad politics, but I think that it will result in the building beingused more by uni-
- charge* versity people. ” Kardish said that he was tired of “power politics”; of the “games the federation plays, and the games the administration plays. The building isn’t worth my sanity, ” he said. Carol Tuchlinsky, acting campus center manager, supported the turnkeys, and referred specifically
-Arts summer About 750 arts students joined math and engineering students on campus at the beginning of summer school tuesday. Half the summer students are elementary school teachers working for degrees or special certificates under a program sponsored jointly by the university and the Ontario teachers federation. The rest are winter students from Waterloo and’ other universities; a few are taking their first university work this summer. _ Eighty arts courses, from most departments and from Remson and St. Jerome’s, are being given in the six-week session, which ends august 15. Since a Full course meets two hours a day during the ses;ion, one course is a full load for most students. several non-credit philosophy and music courses 3re also being given..
“petty to the question of drugs, drugusers, and drug-pushers in the building. She said that the turnkeys have been working very hard for some months to “get the place cleaned up for the summer,” and that they are now being frustrated in this attempt by new board chairman Brian Iler. She cited one specific inciden-t-
Hampered by disconnected telephones, and unfamiliar with the grassy labyrinth, the majority of summer students are living in the south quad of Village 1. ’ Other difficulties met summer students: a traditional registration bottleneck was one. Registration was announced for Seagram gym and many summer students trekked across campus only to find that registration had been moved to the new phys ed building. Even then there were delays and confusion as many preregistrations had to be found or changed. . And despite the beguiling sun over the very summery campus, there is a grim thought for summer students: Christmas exams are less than three weeks away.
politics” concerning a “known drug pusher,” who had previously been evicted from the building, and who had turned up again. The turnkeys on duty at that time again asked the person id question to leave, but Iler overruled, them, saying that since there was no actual proof that he was a pusher, they had no right to evict him. Tuchlinsky feels that this attitude obstructs the turnkeys in the performance of what she con-. ceives to be their duty. Clearly, the main conflict here centers around the turnkeys’ view of themselvesis their role more properly that of policemen, or of PR-men. That the turnkeys presently tend more to the first extreme than the second reduces the congeniality of the building, whatever it may do for its respectability, and many feel this to be an unfortunate development. However, while they are no doubt, angry at the difficulties they are facing in “keeping the building clean ’ ‘, it is apparent that they are, if anything, still more annoyed -at being victim to Burko’s political actions.

arewood Acres is a race fifteen track some miles east of the town of Simcoe that specializes in club and motorcycle racing. It is also a race track that is about to meet a violent and untimely death. Rented and operated by the London automobile sport club the track has been a financial success, paying its own way. Nor is there any lack of interest in automobile racing that is forcing it to reassess itself. Almost every weekend during the season some event is scheduled. 1 And, entries alone are voluminous enough to support the track. Money in terms of gate receipts constitute gravy for the operating club. The track is being closed by the owners of the land, Texaco Oil, who are going to build a refinery on the site where the track now stands. There is nothing that can stand in the way of Texaco’s building
Harewood A trek li
program. Actually, Texaco has been generous enough to the London club, allowing the track to continue through the I970 season although the oil company. would have preferred to begin construction this past spring. Nevertheless, it will be a sad blow to club racers and racing fans throughout the southern Ontario area. Even drivers from New York state and Michigan who often frequent the track will lose some of their now annual competitions. But it is almost over now. As one driver expressed it, “When the final checkered flag goes down in workmen with their September, hammers will be standing by to tear up the pavement. ”
Club racing The track is noted for its club racing, a hobby racing which divides its cars into four main classes -- over two liters, under two liters, sport and production cars. Within these classes there are further divisions. As races for hobbiests, they are attempting to keep the competition as evenly matched to car potential as possible. The cars, running from the Lotus 51 and Porche 911T, through Formula Fords, down to the Formula Vees (VW’s) and Minis are usual-x ly owned-by the driver. Occasionally two or even three people will combine to finance and drive one car. A few of the cars are owned by racing teams and garages specializing in sports cars or racing equipment . Financial ‘aid through advertising brand name products is not totally absent although few drivers appear to gain subsidies in this way. This means that the brunt, or the total cost, of buying the car, building the motor and body, and paying transportation and entry fees rests on the driver. It also means that he is in the sport for the sheer joy of. racing, willing to compete for trophies instead)of cash, simply for his own personal satisfaction. It is this driver, the sportsman, who is to be hurt by the loss of the 1.91 mile track at Harewood Acres.
No alternatives. The possibility of building another track to replace Harewood seems remote, despite the protestations of one driver who cried, “They’ll have to! We don’t have enough tracks now! ” Unfortunately the claim about the lack of club tracks is true. But other things are standing in the way. More than necessity is involved.
At the Prerace safety check everything

Finances, naturally enough, are one of the largest hurdles. Harewood Acres was, at one time, an abandoned air strip, used for training pilots during WWIL The amount of pavement and conCrete abounding in the field made conversion to a race track quite economical. To start all over again, however, would take more money than theLondon club has and more man hours than its members are presently able to give. Then too, there is the problem of finding land. It would have to be large enough and easily accessible for such diverse points as Flint, -Michigan, Chicago, Illinois, and Strykersville, New York \if it is to carry on in the Harewood tradition. _ One member of the London club just slowly shook his head, “I don’t think it can be done. We simply haven’t got what it takes.”
Lost tradition Harewood Acres is one of the oldest racing tracks in Canada. It may not attract the money racers in the same way that Mosport does but it has more years behind it. One Brantford driver, looking out over the track, spoke almost to himself. _ “There’s a lot of history to that track,” he said. “You could write a book on it. ” He continued, reminiscing, “Did you know that the first automobile racing fatality in Canada happened here? It was like the four minute mile. Nobody thought it could be done. Until it happened. Then a whole series followed across the country. About two weeks later someone ,else was killed on another track. I forget where. But it took the first one.” And that was at Harewood, some ten years or so in the past. Other traditions are happier. Fatalities have been few. It is a level track and safety precautions are strict. There are even lighthearted stories. Like the time the Globe and Mail sponsored a race between the rivallous sports car drivers and the Daytona Beach stock car drivers. “After the first lap the stocks were all huddled up way, way back of the sports, ” one spectator to the “Those Daytona race chortled. boys went home with their tails - % between their legs.” ’ Yes, in the decade that the track has been operating, it has built its own legend. But soon, with the track gone, the legend will turn to myth.

N SEPTEMBER 18, 1959, Maurice Duplessis, then premier of Quebec and undisputed ‘chef’ of the union nationale party for twenty-three years, died a quiet death in the Iron Ore Company of Canada’s palatial guest house in Schefferville, Quebec. The five-thousand-odd people living and working, in the busy little boom town more than three hundred miles from the rest of ‘civilization’ were mildly surprised - they didn’t even know Duplessis was in the area. Across the province; the people of Quebec heard the news and wondered where the hell Schefferville was and how it got a name like that. It was ironic that Duplessis should choose to die in Schefferville. It was even more ironic that the people of Quebec were unaware of the significance of the existence of this town and its mining operation in the “development” of the economy of Quebec, and the exploitation of its natural resources by the United States of America. For the IronOre Company of Canada, which literally owns the north shore towns of Schefferville, Labrador City and Sept-Iles, as well as most of their ancillary service corporations, is controlled jointly by a group of large american steel companies. All the ore mined in the Schefferville and Labrador City areas is shipped directly ‘down the St. Lawrence seaway to smelters in Cleveland, Ohio owned by the Republic, National, Armco, Youngstown and Wheeling steel companies. For one reason or another some american steel concerns, notably the gigantic U.S. Steel corporation, missed the opportunity to invest in the Iron Ore Company. Later on these companies formed the Quebec-Cartier mining company and began operations in another section of northern Quebec. Informed sources say that the Quebec government collects a tariff of about 7q: for every ton of ore which leaves the province in Iron-Ore Company vessels. (Both the government and the company are reluctant to disclose the exact amount of the levy;
a high-ranking Iron Ore official finally said that “If you want this question answered you’ll have to put it in writing; and we can’t guarantee an answer. We can’t disclose this kind of information over the telephone - we don’t know who you are or why you , want to know.“)
toil, US profit
Meanwhile, a significant part of Quebec’s labor force is carving millions of tons of iron out of the earth and handing it over to these american concerns to use for their own profit in another country. If you stand on the-.banks of the St. Lawrence seaway at Montreal you can literally watch the fruit of U.S. plunder of the resources of Quebec pass you by inlow-slung heavy-laden ore boats. All the mining is done by what is known as “open pit methods”. The iron ore is simply stripped off the surface of the earth using electric shovels, trucks and conveyor belts. On occasion more than
100,000 tons have been extracted in a 24-hour period. Maurice Duplessis was only a pawn-in the process which, makes this economic and material rape possible. But he was a key pawn in the imperialist chess game which the United States plays every day all over the world, and it was ironic that he should die in Schefferville. It was under the Duplessis administration that the american steel coalition extended its first exploratory tentacles into the north shore area. The Cleveland-based M.A. Hanna company and Hollinger Consolidated gold mines acquired land concessions in both Quebec and Labrador. Both of these companies have holdings within the Iron Ore Company; and in 1949 Hollinger-Hanna ltd. was formed “to manage the affairs of the 0 .C.” And it was the Duplessis government which underbid that of Newfoundland (Joey Smallwood was _ able to collect substantially-more than 7c per ton from iron operations begun by the same interests
Several hundred years ago, when Quebec was no more than a french colony, the vast area of land north of the Gulf of’ St. Lawrence was populated only by roving bands of Indians. The good colonists of the area r.emembered their sunday school lessons from the old testament and referred to this-immense unknown hunk of forest, tundra, lakes and muskeg simply and bitterly as ‘the land god gave to Cain’. By, 1950 Cain had turned the land over to leading sectors of the american steel industry for “development” a-s one of its prime sources of raw iron. The establishmentand operation of the iron mintng industry in Quebec is a case study of Quebec’s economy and its relatjon to. that of, the United States. It also goes a long way towards explaining why working and living conditions in Quebec are so poor.

N RESEARCHING this article, I came across a copy of a cheery little Iron Ore Company publicity brochure about what it must, in its collective ignorance, conceive of as the cheery little town of Schefferville, Quebec. I read the brochure with-some amusement, because my memories of Schefferville, Quebec where I lived for three years are anything but cheery. The brochure talks about planning and layout, about the sound construction of the houses, about the churches and the bank and the theater about the hospital and the transportation system. It does not talk about the built-in class structure deliberately fostered by the company, about the english-speaking bosses living in the best houses and driving company cars while the “uneducated” french-speaking Quebecois and “Newfie” working class live with their larger families (sometimes up to twelve children) on their smaller salaries in their smaller, poorer houses. It does not mention that even within the confines of this small population these economic groups live in social and cultural isolation from each other. It does mention the Indians; though only briefly: “A few miles from the center of the town an indian village is located, composed of Montagnais and Naskapis tribes. ” There are good reasons why it doesn’t say more about the Indians. The Indians in this village, who form ten percent of the population of the town, are
98 the Chevron
living in abject poverty. They are marginal to the economy. The only jobs they ever get are as’garbagemen, street cleaners, or construction workers. One aspiring young girl once managed to get work as a waitress in the company hotel; that was considered the pinnacle of success, for an Indian. The “village” is in fact a federal reservation, located far enough away from the town so that no one.ever has to go there except the local anglican minister. Until 1958. the Indians lived in self-constructed ramshackle huts and shacks. Now many’ of them live in cheaply built but modern-styled houses erected for them by the government of Canada. The houses are designed very much along the lines of the IOC houses in the town itself-except that they have no plumbing of any kind. On a winter morning the indian residents must venture outside of the sub-zero temperature to chip a hole in the ice on the lake to get water for the breakfast meal. Everyone‘1 ever met in Schefferville was either afraid to speak to an Indian, or considered it beneath his dignity. With what has to be a constiiously sadistic irony, the Iron Ore Coany named its plush do&town hotel ‘7he Mon tagnais ‘*.
There are other things the company publicity leaves unsaid about the living conditions in its busy little towns. For instance -many of Schefferville’s ,
five thousand residents have not “been outside” for years. Either through conscious choice, or, more often, through economic necessity, several of the town’s citizens have chosen exile from the rest of the world for ten years, or more, for themselves, and more importantly, for their children. There is no library except for the school’s collection. There is no theater, and no film other than the “latest” Doris Day/Rock Hudson masterpiece. Any books, or records or works of art that are limited by the somewhat restricted and de-mented taste of the purchasing department of the Hudson’s Bay Company, which has a virtual monopoly on departmental and grocery retailing in the Canadian north. There is no local newspaper. The company does its thing by publishing what it likes to call its daily newsletter - a single mimeographed sheet full of local gossip, with the world headlines as lifted from an old Montreal Gazette jammed, almost as an afterthought, on the bottom of the second page. There are no cows or chickens to speak of in Labrador. Given the Hudson’s Bay Company monopoly and a lack of predisposition to help out by the I.O.C. (which is a good deal less than civic-minded when economics are involved), this means that the price of eggs and milk and other dairy products is more than a little i.nflated. Children grow up on powdered milk in Schefferville.

Timmihs was on hand to drive in the last, golden spike on february 13, 1954. Timmins, multimillionaire gold-financier and life-long friend of the Kennedy family, is namesake, patron saint and landlord of the mining town of Timmins, Ont-ario, as well as president, chairman or just plain boss of --Timmins Aviation ltd., J.R. Timmins & co. (stockbrokers), Timmins ltd., and the Timmins Investment company. He also holds a major interest in Hollinger-Hanna.
It took almost no time at all to expand Sept-Iles from a population of 1200 to more than 10,000 (by 1966 over 19,000 people had-the dubious honor of calling Sept-Iles their home). A harbor was constructed capable of handling at least 10 million tons of ore per year - Sept-Iles now rivals Montreal in tonnage handled. By 1955, QNS & L railway cars were dumping ore into boats by the tonload (80.3 long tons per car, to be exact), and the Iron Ore Company had become the largest iron ore Jroducer in Canada. Most Canadians can probably recall the gala opening of the Saint Lawrence seaway in 1959. Financed by both american and Canadian governments, its completion was heralded by all concerned as the creation of a working monument to the notion of international economic co-operation in government and industry. -Canadian companies were supposed to save money by bringing wheat and such downstream to the Atlantic, and american companies were to profit by shipping things like iron, upstream to things like smelters in Cleveland, Ohio. It didn’t work out quite the way it was supposed to from the Canadian perspective. But meanwhile; IOC followed up the opening of the seaway by beginning operations at its second north shore location - the Carol Lake project near Labrador City. By august 15, 1964, the 100 millionth ton of iron ore
had passed upstream through the seaway’s Montreal locks in the Hollinger-Hanna ore boat MS. Monksgarth. N 0.CTOBER 1968, 10,000 students ,marched through the streets of Montreal to protest * the severe lack of educational facilities in Quebec. Simultaneous demonstrations occurred in other Quebec urban areas. Chief among the students’ grievances were the government’s total failure to move towards its stated goals of free educa- . tion or to begin construction of a second French- / language university in Montreal. In the McGill University senate, the conservative majority of voting members, confronted with a student motion on free education and the second university issue, listened carefully to the assurances of professors Frankel and LeBlond, backed up by the nodding head of law dean Maxwell Cohen that Quebec was near bankruptcy and that the union nationale government has made tremendous improvements in accessibility has made tremendous improvements in accessibility to education. They studiously ignored a suggestion that perhaps the present situation has arisen because the government has failed to develop its own industries. They struggled valiantly to ignore the issues before them, but could not. As an alternative, they cut the guts out of all the motions. L Elsewhere at McGill, staff and technicians were beginningwork in university’s brand-new institute for mineral industry research. The progr,am, now an established part of the engineering faculty, was created “in an endeavour to serve still further the industry with which the department is so vitally related”. Laboratory and research staff began carrying on projects directly sponsored by, for instance, the Iron Ore Company of Canada. The facilities were provided in large part by McGill, but at this point the operations are directly financed by various sectors of the mining industry.
When these events are considered together, it becomes clear that such pressing problems as access
to the education system or bettering the shameful standard of living of the Quebec population could well findithe beginnings of a solution in, say, nationalization of the St. Lawrence seaway by the Quebec government, and charging substantial tariffs to groul>s like the american steel coalition and its front men. That’s a lot of iron those guys are tearing out of our land. (More than 150 million tons by now, to be exact, 300 million tons can still be extracted by open pit mining in the Knob Lake area, with much bigger deposits in the Carol Lake area:) The tariff could be raised considerably from 76 a ton without overstepping. Allot of economic repercussion would likely follow such a move by the government. A more satisfactory solution in the long run might be to couple the nationalization process with the development of. more secondary industry within Quebec, industry capable of processing the iron itself. There is a definite connection between the parasitical nature of the Quebec economy on the american and the deplorable living and working conditions in the province. And it just might be that the people of Quebec can begin to work towards a solution of these problems only by beginning to take control of their ’ economy and their destiny, by using the products of their labor for their own advantage rather than for the profit of giant corporations like Ho/linger-Hanna and their shado wy backers.
With the natural and human resources of Quebec at its disposal, there is no excuse or necessity for any government to operate within the present social and economic restrictions imposed by U.S. and anglo-Canadian industrial concerns. The government of Quebec has in no way shown itself willing to act on behalf of Quebec people, and to place their interests above those or the imperialist corporations which play such a large part in the economy. And the government of McGill university, overtly by applauding Quebec’s policies and programs in the senate chamber, and more covertly by aiding companies like the’ IOC in the laboratory also has aligned itself against the people.

HE SCHOOL Is an entry into the life of the mind. It is, to be sure, life itself and not merely a preparation for living. But it is a special form of living, one care-fully devised for making themost df those plastic years that characterize the development of homo sapiens and_ distinguish our species from all others. School should provide more than a continuity with %he broader community. or with everyday experience. It is primarily the special community where dhe experiences discovery by the use of intelligence, where one leaps into new and unimagined realms of experience, experience that is discontinuous * with what went before. A child recognizes- this when he first understands what a- poem is, or what beauty and simplicity inhere in the idea of the conservation theorems, or that measure is universally applicable. If there is one continuity td be singled out, it is the slow converting of the child’s artistic sense of the omnipotence of thought into the realistic confidence in the use of thought that characterizes the effective man. In insisting upon the continuity of $he school with the community on the one side and the family on the other, John Dewey overlooked the special function of ‘education as an opener of new perspectives. If the school ,were merely a transition zone from the intimacy of the family to the life of the community, it would be a way of life easily enough arranged. In the educational systems of primitive societies, ther’e almost al ways comes a/point, usually at puberty, where there is a sharp change in the life of the boy, marked by a rite de that establishes a boundary between childhood ways and the ways of tKe adglescent. It would be romantic nonsense to pattern our practices upon those found in preliterate societies. I would only
ask that we attend to one partillel: education biust not confuse the child with the adult &d must recognize that the transition to adulthood involves an introduction toa7 new realms of -experience the discovery an9 exploration of new mysteries, the gaining of new powers.
The issue of subject matter in education can be resolved only by reference to &e’s view of the nature of knowledge. Knowledge is a model we construct to give meaning and structure to regularities in experience. The organi&; ideas of any body of knowledge are inventions for fendering experience economical and connected. We invent concepts such as force in physics, the bond in chemistry, motives in psychology, style in literature as means to the end-of comprehension. The history of culture is the history of ,the deyelopment of great organizing ideas, ideas that inevitably stem from deeper values and points of view about man and nature. The power of great organizing concepts is in large part that they .permit us to understand and some-’ times to predict or change the world in which we live. But’their power !ies also in the fact that .ideas provide instruments for experience. Having grown up in a culture --dominated-by the ideas of Newton, and& with a conception of time flowing eqyably, we egperienc6 time moving inexorably and steadily, marked by a one-way arrow. In, deed, we know now, after a quarter of a century of research on perception, that experience is not to be had directly and neatly, but filtered through the programmed readiness of our sens?s. The program is constructed with our expectations and these are derived from our models or ideas about what exists and what1 follows what. 1
HIS IS THE last column in the ” . . . and kings” series. It’s travel time for yours truly and thus bye-bye time too. I thought perhaps I might say something definite in (he last edition of the column so YQU might get a glimmer of what the preceding columns were all about. It seems that people have been trying to glean some kind of great, ominous series of thoughts from -this column on occasion, when in fact, there was no main theme at all. Let-me explain this. I can see many s$es and kinds of writing that are a&active and interesting. Some lay out a story line to achieve an end or a point of jnformation. Others paint a definite picture; tell a story of sorts. Then there is 3 form of architectural-writing that sometimes has a point to it, sometimes doesn’t. When you walk into a building, you generally get some s&t of feeling from the edifice. I? yo,u’ like it or dislike it, you generally go about looking at specific things that you approve of more than others. Perhaps the stairway intrigues you, the lights fascinate, or the doors strike you as being unique. In any case, within the context of the functional-building, you find aspects that stand out, that intrigue beyond the function of the place. To a large exte;t, that is how I have written this column, but in some cases, like last week’s effort, there has been no overall, great point to make. I have used the words ai a sort of structural limit, designed and played within them just for fun and once in a while-used the design and play in order to set up one line that means something in itself. play of intercontecting acts and And perhaps that is’ how I view life . . . a sort of scenes in which we, the plaiers, sometimes ceme across an event that stands out and that is set up by all the other sporadic, fantastic little sub plbts, scenes and acts that float wit. ii In the I context of life. To a great extent, there is no pattern. We can cramp our style, narrow the scope of our part of the play by entering into an institution of sorts, be that institution school or job, but in the long ru_n, we are still in a play. However, within the ins6tution. we allow ourselves not as much surprise and fascination, disappointment and exuberance, for an institutionalized life is, to a degree, predictable. For some, the institution acts as a springboard into the play by giving bread and milk and shelte& For others, like myself, the price of security and predictability is a loss of sanity, an inability to deal with the play because of too-much focused involvement in one of its acts. I keep thtnking I’m missing the joy of watching and participating in a greater play. So that is why I leave. But never fear.- Some day, I will “grow up”, “s?tle down” and put . “purpose” and “meaning” in my existence. I will succumb to the institution of your choice. Toodle pip and all that.

From this, two convictions foll‘ow. The first is that the structure of knowledge4ts connectedness and the.derivaktions that make one idea follow from another-is the proper emphasis in education. For it is structure, the great conceptual inventions that bring order to the congeries of disconnected observation, that gives meaning to what we may learn and makes possible the opening up of new realms of experience. The second conviction is that the unity of knowledge is to be found within knowledge itself, if the knowledge is worth mastering. To attempt a justification of subject matter, as Dewey did, in terms of its relation to the child’s social ac,tivities is to misunderstand what knowledge is and how it may be mastered. There is one consideration of cognitive economy-that is paramount. One cannot “cover” any subject in full, not even in a lifetime, if coverage means visiting all the facts and events and morsels. Subject matter presented so as to emphasize its structure will perforce be of that generative kind that permits reconstruction of the details or, at least, prepares a place into which the details, when encountered, can be put. What then of subject matter in the conventional sense? The answer to the question, “What shall be taught?” thins out to be the answer to the question, “What is nontrivial?” If one can first answer the question, “What is worth knowing about? ” then it’is not difficult to distinguish between the aspects of it that are worth teaching and learning and those that are not. Surely, knowledge of the natural world, knowledge of the human condition, knowledge of the nature and dynamics of society, knowledge bf the past so that it may be used in experiencing the present and aspiring to the future-all of these, it would seem-reasonable to suppose, are essential to an educated man. To these. must be added another: knowledge of the products of our artistic heritage that mark the history of our aesthetic wonder and delight. Finally, it is as true today as it was when Dewey wrote that one cannot foresee the world in which the child we educate, will live. Informed powers of mind and a sense of potency in action are the only instruments we can give the child that will be invariable.across the transfdrmations of time and circumstance. The succession of studies that we give-the-child in the ideal school need be fixed in only, one way: whatever is introduced, let it be pursued continuously enough to give the student a sense df the power of mind that comes from a deepening of under’ standing. It is this, rather than any form of extensive coverage, that matters most. F& this reason; as well as for reasons already stated, it is essential that, before being exposed to a wide range of b material on a topic, the child first have a general idea of how and where things fit. It is often the, case that the development bf the general idea comes from a first round of experience with concrete embodiments of ideas that are close to a child’s life. The cycle of learning begins,

Insofar as possible, a method of instruction should have the objective of leading the child to discover for himself. Telling children and then testing them on what they have been told inevitably has the effect of producing benchbound’learners whose motivation for learning is likely to be extrinsic to the task-pleasing the teacher, getting into college, artificially maintaining self-esteem. The virtues of encouraging discovery are of two kinds. In the first place, the child will make what he learns his own, will fit his discovery into the interior world of culture that he creates for himself. /Equally important, discovery and the sense of confidence it provides is the proper reward for learning. It is a-reward that, moreover, strengthens the, very process that is at the heart of education-disciplined inquiry. Most important of. all,-the educational process must be free ofintellectual dishonesty and those forms of cheating ’ that explain without providing understanding. I have expressed the conviction elsewhere that any subject can be taught to anybody at any age in some form that is honest. It is not honest to present a fifth-grade social-studies class with an image of town government as if- it were a den of cub‘scouts presided over by, a parent figure interpreting the charter-even if the image set forth does-happen to mesh with the child’s immediate social experience. A1 lie is still a lie-even if it ~sounds~ like familiar truth. Nor is it honest to present ‘a sixth-grade science, . class with a garbled but concrete picture of the atom that is, in its way, as sweeteningly false as the suburban image of town government given them the year before. A dishonest- image can only discourage the self-generating intellectual inquiry out of which real understanding grows. * *-* I \ I believe that education is the fundamental method of social change. Revolutions themselves are no better and are often less good than the ideas they embody and the means invented .for their application. Change is swifter in our times than ever /before in human history and ’ news of it is almost instantaneous. If we are to be serious - in the belief that school must be life itself and not merely preparation for life,.then school must reflect the changes through which we are-living.

The occasion was the Stratford seminar on civic design. The topic was ‘is family life amenable to high-rise, highidensity living ?’ The results were, of course, inconclusive, though everyone had a grand time parading from the Victorian Room to the English Pub for drinks, and from’the English Pub to the Franklin Roomsfor more drinks and dinner. But we must be fair-there were some interesting remarks to be made by a few generally-ignored socialists about the irrelevance of design problems in ‘high-density living if there was no housing for those who couldn’t afford it., But more of ail this in a feature within the next two weeks., One person to mention, however, if you ever come into contact with him: Earl Berger, a planning consultant and lecturer at York ‘university: he has potential. While I attended the seminar, Bob Epp struggled valiantly to get most of the paper through; so a word of thanks to him. And to Ken Bowers who must be wondering what I was doing tripping off to a seminar when I should be finishing (beginning?) a 480 course for him: some interesting thoughts were,expressed (though not as much as I had hoped from looking at the’advance outline) on the~topic of tenant and/or owner participation in mei+ningful group decision-making regarding th,eir environment within- condominium and high-density urban developments-i.e., a “neighborhood forum” aspect of group interaction (see Chevron, june 26).
