Not very long ago I was in the city of Decatur, Illinois, where I made a little talk on the subject of conservation to the students in botany. I asked the instructor in charge of the work in the high school about the teaching of biology and he promptly said, "We have not changed our plan of teaching Botany in the high school. We are following the old method of giving a strong course in botany and one in zoology, and we believe that these courses fit the needs of our students better than general courses in biology or in general science." I promptly replied that I was glad to see that they had not changed in the methods of teaching botany.
