Speaking to some 200 women at a luncheon of the Women’s Action Committee for Victory and Lasting Peace, Dean C. Mildred Thompson ‘03 urged support of the draft constitution for the United Nations educational and cultural organization proposed by the United States delegation to the international conference, of which she was a member.  She also warned that many European children in occupied countries seemed content in their Nazi-dominated school programs, which emphasized marching and singing at the expense of studying.  “Under our democratic method,” she said, “we won’t be able to hit such children over the head and say ‘You must prefer our system!’  We must make them want to prefer our way by offering the best we have.”     The New York Times
