Education we need to be constantly
reminded, is a process of educing, of
drawing forth, rather than pouring in
Every department of the university, ev-
en the academic department, is infest-
ed with those who think only in terms
of their profession; for whom the par-
amount question is "How is this study
going to make me a better-equipped
teacher, a more skillful physician, an
abler lawyer, a shrewder man of bus-
The educational value of a study is
determined by a quantative measure-
ment. It is a good course if it de-
velopes and presents a large number
of facts and rules of practical use.
History, economics, rhetoric, and even
philosophy have utility only in so far
as they enhance one's ability to argue
a case, teach literature, discuss public

peas. We are specialization mad. The
worm of commercialism is attacking
our very root.
Education is a process which should
not vary with the individual or the
department. If we were all intended
to be alike, there 'could be no objection
to that kind of so-called education

and enriched with honey extracted by
erudite honey-bees from the myriad of
flowers which bloom in the garden of
learning. It is the plant itself, in the
process of growth, which with proper
cultivation by watchful gardeners will
develop and unfold in all its beauty
and fulnness, according to its peculiar
It is a healthy sign when the philos-
ophy and rhetoric courses outgrow
their quarters. The popular method
of evaluating a course is disclosed in
the familiar testimony, "I got a lot out
of that course," a statement which is
highly unflattering both to the inform-
er and to the course,. If you want to
be sure that a course is a good one,
find someone who can say of it, "It
get a lot out of me." If it does that, it
Hurrah! Another scandal unearthed.
