llur ganize an anti-jaywalking club in every advis- ory group. When the members of the advisory group signed a pledge promising to obey the traffic rules, they were presented with tags to wear as a sign of their cooperation. A roving class photographer snapped pictures of pupils caught in the act of jaywalking. These pictures and posters, exhibited in the corridors, aroused much interest and merriment. Anti - .laywalking Project As a result of this campaign, not only has jaywalking been reduced, but the students en- gaged in it received valuable, first hand experi- ence with a phase of American citizenship - that is, dealing with a hazardous traffic prob- lem, This practice also had democratic values. lt impressed upon the pupils the social and poli- tical responsibilities of the individual to his community.

llur Anti - Jaywalking Pr Last autumn, when the city of St. Louis launched an anti-jaywalking campaign as a phase of their major traffic control plan, the public schools were invited to cooperate, Since Central High School lies along a very busy thor- oughfare, which most of our pupils must cross on their way to school, an anti-jaywalking cam- paign seemed a very practical and worthwhile project, It seemed an opportune time to try to establish in our student body a consciousness of the need for pedestrian cooperation to overcome the traffic hazards in our school community. This project fitted in very nicely with the work of the American Problems classes, which had just completed the topic of "Propaganda and the Devices for Influencing Public Opinion". Both classes decided to test their skill in the use of these devices in an Anti-jaywalking Cam- paign. They drew up lists of things they needed to know before launching the campaign. Pupils at once volunteered to gather the information. Prom then on to the end of the project, time was given at the beginning of every class period to any committee of pupils which wished to report its progress or ask the class for advice or authority to pursue an activity. In this way pupils learned responsibility for group action. inject One small group of students visited the Traf- Hc Division in the City Hall to get a copy of the Traffic Code and learn the provisions of the ordinance on jaywalking. Another group visited the Police Station in our community to talk over our project with the Police and ask their cooperation. The next matter to be considered by the classes was the diffusion of information to others. Ways and means for informing the whole school' were decided upon. Every pupil agreed to advertise the project by speaking to at least ten other pupils not engaged in the project. The classes also selected the propaganda devices to be used, and grouped themselves into com- mittees, each committee assuming the responsi- bility of using one of these devices. So they made up slogans and posters picturing the pos- sible consequences of jaywalking, The slogan, "The life you save may be your own," figured prominently in the posters. The Principal and student leaders were interviewed for statements on the value and need of an Anti-jaywalking Campaign. These testimonials appeared in the daily bulletins and in the school newspaper. Playing upon the desire of every school child to belong to a club, a committee decided to or-
