A Survey of the Post-War Planning of Colleges and Universities Designed to Meet the Needs of Returned War Veterans

Description: "The present study is limited to the programs of colleges and universities designed to meet the needs of the veterans. Its primary purpose is to make a survey of the policies and programs of a cross-section of institutions in the nation and to evaluate the programs in light of needs and purposes of veterans as shown by certain surveys....in conclusion the following evaluation is made of the results of this study: 1. The men and women returning from the armed forces to civilian life will have many adjustments to make. To facilitate these adjustments, additional education in many instances will be required. 2. The federal government has made it possible for a much larger number of veterans to return to school than could resume their education otherwise. 3. Not only will the students be more numerous than before, they will be more heterogeneous, thus presenting more complex problems for the schools. The changes being made to accomodate the veterans are obviously changes which do not fundamentally alter the characteristics of higher education. They are changes in the mechanics of education designed to assist veterans in making proper adjustments to academic and civilian life as quickly and as easily as possible."-- leaves 2,96.

Discovering Some Constructive Ways of Promoting Social Cooperation in the First Grade Child

Description: From the first day when the child enters school it should be the teacher's aim to help him "achieve maximum development and at the same time to live harmoniously with others." It is the purpose of this study to provide for the realization of this aim through discovering: 1. In what ways the normal first grade child is lacking in social cooperation and background contributing to this lack; 2. How this lack of social cooperation affects the child's behavior in the daily activities in which he engages at school and suggestions in literature for eliminating social maladjustments; and 3. How the elimination of social maladjustments will help the child to become a happier, better adjusted participant in all of the daily activities in which he engages.
