PICKING THE ( AREFUILLY
Nett fall Princeton will embark on
a new policy of limiting its freshman
class to 600 carefully chosen men.
Besides bringing his high school prin-
cipal's recommendation as to his lion-
or, industry, reliability, and general
character, and giving certifier proof
that his secondary school work w as
of extraordinary high quality, he
must pass both a psychological test
to determine his possibilities of de-
velopment and a rigid entrance exam-
ination.
The idea of the Princeton admin-
istration hoard is that they can serve
civilization better by devoting all their
energies to developing men who have
the necessary brain power to start
with than by turning oat a large num-
bIr of mediocre students. Princetoi
should be heartily congrattulated on
her new policy. It is a fact that, our
i'niversities today are wasting time
on a lot of "dummkopfs" and nincom-
poops which tends to drag down the
general level of the more intelligent.
This plan is merely a scientific methi-
od of improving the breed wlhich oth-
er educational institutions might well
follow.
It is to be lamented that Michigan
will not or cannot do the same thing.
Our campus today is overloaded with
men and women who might better be
out earning money than wasting the
time of professors and other students
who are more capable by trying to
garner a degree for some unknown
reason before their feebl brains b'-
come too solidified.
PRESIDEN'r FRANK EXPERMfENTS
This fall Pres. Glenn Frank of Wis-
consin, will start putting into practice
his theories of education. Madison is'
now the scene of rapid construction
of dormitories and school buildings.
September will see the opening of
President Frank's experimental col-
lege under the direction of Professor
Meiklejohn anti a special faculty. The
student body will be composed of 125
recent graduates of high schools who
have volunteered to take the two'
years of "project study." At the end
of the second year e- class will be{
returned to the university as jun-i
lors where ther work may be compar-
ed with that of the regular juniors.
Besides carrying out Doctor Frank's
ideas, the college will be a laboratory
in which to test the educational the-
ories that lost Doctor Meiklejohn his
presidency at Amherst in 1923.
Certainly the project cannot harm
the students who willI be under the
new college's supervision for twoI
