Dr. Joseph Lauwerys, head of the comparative, education department at the talk on his Asian travels at 2:15 in 229 FH both days. In this afternoon’s lecture, Lauwerys will deal with Japan. While his talks will be principally concerned with “The School and Society,” he will not “dodge any questions as to the political or social situations” in the area. Japan’s greatest educational problem lies in the fact that, although its classrooms are very much overcrowded, not enough university students are entering the sciences. That is to say, too many of them are studying the arts.” This situation exists, *he says, even though Japanese youth recognizes the fact that its country’s position in world affairs depends on the degree of technical proficiency of its people. “The Japanese, of course, are trying to alleviate the problem of overcrowded schools by building more classrooms and training more teachers,” Lauwerys said. “But the trouble is that teachers are terribly underpaid there, even relatively speaking.” The skyrocketing populations of these two countries have added to their education difficulties. China faces a staggering population increase of 12 million annually. Abortion and birth control were mentioned by Lauwerys as two methods Japan and China were introducing to lower their imposing birth rates. “The Red Chinese have started a new policy of sterilization for both men and women which they hope will have ^some effect,” Lauwerys said. “However, it’s only 12 months since the program began so it’s too early to say whether they’re having any success.” DR. JOSEPH LAUWERYS . . . down with the birthrate Ann Childs Still in Coma Ann Childs, popular cashier in the SC ticket office, is still in critical condition and in a coma in Iowa following a head-on collision while she was returning from her vacation.
