However, the University Presi-

the variety, not only of courses
and majors, bu talso of jobs of-

been liberalized in the past few
Can Exercise Wide Choice
"There is clearly a wide area for
both the family and boy or girl to
exercise wide choice, much the
same as there is here," he said.
Later he qualified the statement,
adding, "I suspect, after making

a student has chosen his vocation
it is difficult to change.
Can't Avoid 'Eight O'Clocks
They also have less latitude in
choosing schedules, he added, and
'no chance to avoid eight o'clock

are very proud," he said.
Extra activities are not required,
but Prof. Dewey noted that they
are "encouraged by the youth
leaders who are the vanguard of

On Education
"A democratic society cannot
exist without a well-educated
electorate," the vice-president for
academic affairs at Michigan
State University told the New
York Times Friday.
Thomas H. Hamilton, who will
assume the presidency of the
state University of New York Aug.

is designed to benefit not only the
individual, but society as a whole.
"I see no possibility for our so-
ciety to survive, let alone prosper,
without having extensive -educa-
tional opportunities available," he
Dichotomy Unnecessary

Discussing his philosophy of
education, Hamilton said that a
dichotomy between quantity and
quality in education is not neces-
"I think that public education
generally, while it must deal with
numbers, can still be high in
quality," he commented.
At least a minimum of liberal
education is needed by everyone,
Hamilton believes. He described
this as a background in broad
areas and the ability to use tools
of logic and to reason at a high
Discusses Soviet Advances
He added that he was' in no
sense opposed to vocational and
professional education. Liberal
and professional educations are
essential components of the
whole, he said.
Of Soviet educational advances,
he said, "Fundamentally, I am
opposed to shaping our education-
al policy in reaction to the So-
viet Union."
