Educational Department May Have
Training Course For high
School Pedagogues
AMichigan in the near future will
have a demonstration school the equal
of any in the country, if the plans of
the educational department find favor
with the regents. This school will
offer a thorough practical training to
prospective high school teachers and
will he to the high school what Ypsi-
lanti and other normal schools are to




the elementary grade schools.
"Michigan," said Professor Whitney,
head of the educational department,
in speaking of the proposed school,
"is the only large university in the
west without a practical demonstra-
tion school for those desiring to obtain
experience and training in teaching
the higher grades. That is the pri-
mary purpose of our educational de-
partment. We have laboratories for
our chemists and scientists, we have
shops for our engineers, and hospitals
where prospective doctors may obtain
.training, but we send men and women
out to teach without any practical ex-
perience whatsoever. If anyone would
send us a doctor who had never been
in a hospital. or a dentist who has
only theoretical knowledge, we would
think it absurd; but that is exactly
what we are doing to our children."
The plans provide for a complete
high school, in its own building, where
students would conduct classes in all
ligh school subjects under the super-
vision of trained experts. While act-
ual plans have not been drawn for the
building, inasmuch as everything
rests with the regents, who will con-
sider the matter at their next meet-
ing in November, Professor Whitney
and other members of the department
who have been working on the idea
for some time, are confident that be-
fore long Michigan will have a mod-
ern university high school.

In the last issue of the Alumnus,
considerable space is given to a dis-
cu'ssion of the subject. The matter
of dormitories for men has never been
seriously considered before at Miclii-
gan, because a great many of the new
men have moved directly into frater-
nity houses, and the rest have been
scattered throughout the town in the
various rooming houses. However
Michigan's freshman class has grown
to such an extent that, during the
next few years, some action .on the
housing of these men will have to be
taken by the university.
Michigan's sister college,' M. A. C.
provides "dorms" for a number of her
students, and the experience of the
"Farmers" has shown that the idea is
successful. Many of the eastern col-
leges, and the majority of the far
western colleges, have finally arrived
at the dormitories as a solution of
the problem.

Arrangements have been made by
the Boat club and the University
health service to give instructions in
the new Schaefer method of resuscita-
tion to the campus at large, and espe-
cially to the freshmen. Dr. H. H.
Cummings will demonstrate the Schae-
fer method to the new men at the
regular gym classes beginning next
month. He will illustrate the move-
ments from the platform, and the stu-
dents will imitate and practice them
on the floor.
In addition to the lessons in the
gym, the two organizations have se-
cured 5,000 copies of a pamphlet which
is issued by the State Board of Health
at Lansing, explaining the Schaefer
method, which they will distribute to
students at the All-Fresh dinner to-
night, at the gym, and by committees
selected from the upper classes to dis-
tribute them in the department build-
