(Continued on Page 4) CD Apathy Due to Fear Civilian defense apathy is due to the fact that people are too afraid of the atomic bomb, a noted psychologist said at the University of Southern California recently. “As a result, they feel perfectly helpless and feel that nothing they can do will make any difference in defending themselves against atomic attack,” Dr. Ren-sis Likert, director of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan, told an SC institute on group leadership. “You can't frighten people into civilian defense,” Dr. Likert said. “You will just scare them away from it by making them think there’s no use in trying.

Applications are available in Deans’ Offices and at the Test-ting Bureau and should be filed ln the Testing Bureau at least two days prior to the examination to permit the gathering of appropriate materials. This examination is to be taken in morning and afternoon sessions of the ftaine day and lasU until about 5 p.m. A. S. Raubenheimer Educational Vice-Pres. Although California has a state system of public education established by the people, it does not exist in actual practice, 400 school administrators and supervisors were told at the University of Southern California last week. “All 58 counties are operating under the same Education Code, but are doing different things because each county is interpreting the law in a different way," said Charles Webster, principal of Ventura junior high school. He called for establishment of a central agency under the state department of education or the attorney general to interpret the 700-page code so that all counties will administer their schools identically. “The state constitution provides for a state system of public education, and the courts have consistently held since 1893 that this means one system which shall be applicable to all the schools of the state,” the former Burbank high school vice principal said. “Such a system, however, does not exist in actual practice. In California there are more differences in schoo( administration between the counties than there are differences between the 48 states.” With 58 different county school superintendents, county auditors and district attorneys each trying to decide how the Education Code shall be administered in his county, nothing but confusion has resulted, Webster said. In addition, the state attorney general and the administrative advisor of the state department of education submit their opinions which are binding on no one, Webster said. Differences in school administration throughout the state range all the way from whether out-of-town groups can use school buildings for meetings to whether athletic equipment can be bought for use in league activities. More than 500 bills to change school laws were introduced in the last legislature, said Dr. Harry M. Howell, associate superintendent of Los Angeles city schools. This was necessary because education is a function of the state and boards of education have only those powers which are enumerated in the Education Code, he explained School districts have only delegated and no implied powers, he reminded the audience. On Sept. 22, California will become the first state to have a $3000 minimum salary law for full-time teachers, Dr. Howell said. Also on that day, the minimum age of children for admission t« school will be raised by three months. To get into kindergarten, children must be 4 years and 9 months old, and to enter first grade they must be 3 years and 9 months o fage. If schools open before Sept. 23, however, the old law will apply. Also, children with one year of kindergarten can enter the first grade next year even through not of the required age. _ One of the most important and far-reaching laws passed by the last legislature was the school appor* tionment bill, appropriating an additional $13,475,000, Dr. Howell said. Tliis will be distributed as follows: $7,100,000 for current growth; $1,- 400,000 for pupil transportation aid to normal and physical-handicapped pupils; $4,275,000 for equalization aid to assist poor districts and $700,000 to aid small rural high schools.
