Education
Today the first two broadcasts in the new Physical Training course are being given to schools. These are experimental in nature and are designed for pupils between the ages of nine and twelve. The two periods are planned respectively for children listening in halls and for children who, through lack of space, are forced to hear the broadcast while standing by their desks in class-rooms. Wherever there is obvious advantage music will be used as a guide to rhythmical movement. Edith Dowl ing who is in charge of the broadcast physical instruction has had some thirty-four years of gymnastic work behind her, and has gained considerable experience from study in Denmark. She is also an expert in massage and remedial gymnastics.
