Signs of the Times

[From an editorial in the Federal Council Bulletin, Utica, New York]

"Yesterday Cleveland asked of a citizen, 'Where were you educated?' To-morrow Cleveland will ask, 'How are you continuing your education?'" These words express the spirit of a remarkable experiment being made in Cleveland in adult education on social and international questions. Through an organization known as "The Education Extension Council," discussion groups, neighborhood institutes, forums, and community conferences are being held, bringing together groups of different races and religions. The aim is not merely to stimulate growth in knowledge, but in mutual understanding and friendship as well. A two-day institute on foreign affairs, held after the general model of the Williamstown School of Politics, was participated in by a thousand members and attracted city-wide attention. The Federal Council's Committee on Goodwill between Christians and Jews has cooperated in launching and maintaining the enterprise.
