Mar 29th - S.S. Wash

It was interesting at lunch today with Mr & Mrs Davis & Admiral Stanley. I asked Mr D what he thought of Dartington Hall, & he said it sounded very interesting; but of course giving people every opportunity isn't what causes the greatest accomplishments. He said the Rockefeller institute has been going for 25 years, & nothing much has been proved whereas Pasteur under the greatest accomplishments did a thousand times as much. Then Mrs Davis said that genius can't be turned out in schools anyway - because it comes so rarely anyway, but Dartington might enrichen the average life a hundred percent, & I agreed with her. Then Mr Davis said that Carrell in his book deplores that so much time & money is being spent on prolonging countless useless lives yearly, when really what is needed is to have [[strikethrough]] lives [[/strikethrough]] people learn how to live properly & usefully. He said that man is being ruined by his own inventions which are way beyond his mental ability to cope with. I said then that Psychoanalysis will be the only hope of [[strikethrough]] teaching people how to cope with things [[/strikethrough]]
