Vital Issues.
Metheny, Eleanor
This publication contains nineteen speeches delivered over a thirty-year period of involvement by the author in health, physical education, and recreation activities. Grouped under time-related headings, the speeches deal with: (1) "Active Bodies," two speeches (1942, 51) reflecting a World War II and Korean War concern with a healthy, prepared citizenry; (2) "Perceptive Minds" and "Sport and Dance," a group of ten speeches (1950-71) with a "whole person" viewpoint, concerned with affective, sensory, perceptual, cognitive, symbolic and "meaningful" aspects of physical education; (3) six speeches delivered between 1950 and 1959 dealing with women's liberation, professional progress, and change dynamics, grouped into "Women in Action" and "Propositions." The concluding speech,"People Make Ideas Happen" (1970) reviews the history of American physical education. (MB)
