search and know that the University life is par-
ticularly well suited for this.
Dean Mackenzie's argument as reported is that
too many professors are emphasizing the second
goal too strongly and forgetting the first; that they
are teaching themselves when they should be edu-
cating others; that they "have no human interest
in their students." Apparently he blames the pro-
fessors for the impossible conditions-under which
d they are forced to teach courses of four hundred
or more. After saying that "the professor has no
opportunity of judging his students' individau abil-
ity" he condemns not the system, but the selfsame
professor, 'for the lack of individual attention and
the consequent failures meted out.
- . Aside from this lack of logic, the published attack
of Dean Mackenzie displays an astonishing atti-
tude toward research. In this world of necessary
specialization, business men cannot be expected to
delve into scientific experiment any more than Edi-
son can be expected to farm while working up an
invention. What better man could be found for the
task of research than the university professor, who
ff has both the background of knowledge, and the re-
sponsibility of a teacher. He can best do the work ;
and he of all men ought to be up with the most ad-
vanced theory of the day. Otherwise the discarded
and disproved will be the intellectual diet of Amer-
ica's youth.
If Dean Mackenzie wants to attack present uni-
versity conditions let him not strike at the profes-
sor - who is a victim - but at the public attitude
which withholds the funds for better salaries, keeps
down the number of instructors, and forces teach-
ing in cramped quarters and with poor equipment,
at the very time when student bodies are doubling
in number and the state should be realizing its
great opportunity to advance, not hamper, educa-
tion.

CLASS SPIRIT AT THE EBB
three votes were cast Wednesday to elect
senior lit councilmen who are to serve
end of the year. Thie election had been
ed for a week, and ballot boxes were kept
hours. There are more than six hundred
in the class. Less than an eighth of this
attended either of the two meetings which
e nominations. The numbers at each have
niinishing teadily as may be seen by com-
with the attendance of three hundred dur-
early part of the year.
f something over a thousand sophomores,
o hundred and fifty attended the last class
wo conclusions can be drawn: not even the
re class has even a conception of the class
which is Michigan spirit - that ought to

worse, the little spirit yve have left dwin-

beyond a mere place to crack so many

the student body?
it's high time to change our attitude or else
and take our education by correspondence.
lass spirit continues to disintegrate,,alumni
will soon be a farce. Aren't we about
a rebirth of the old spirit that made Mich-
id for something in every student's life?
HE UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR
unior college has taken something of a hop
lime-light by virtue of the newspaper halo
er it by Dean David Mackenzie of Detroit
ollege last week. Dean Mackenzie over
:ance 'phone, did not want the University of
n to feel offended over what lie had said
blished interview; it had been exaggerated,
way he had meant to refer to universities
ole, such present company as Ann :Arbor
course excepted.
o be hoped that we may count among the
-ations" the opinion that "the university
r is the smallest man on earth merely fill-
>osition to accumulate knowledge."
vho attend college to prepare for business
nlook at the professor type askance, as a
>f rare avi whose mental processes they
nderstand and hence are prone to ridicule.
rage man's altruism is a thing of fits and
e cannot appreciate the deliberate unselfish-
he majority of professors which leads them
p lives certainly more promising financially
erially and accept a faculty career with a
n annual stipend of around $5,000 after
preliminary routine.
>rofessors make this sacrifice for two ends:
:ause they have the educator's ideal and
importance of the teacher's place in de-
second, because they wish to carry on re-

SCIENCE IN SCHOOL TEACHING
Improper public and high school groundwork is
probably the most employed excuse for poor col-
lege standings. "Nobody ever taught me that, and
I came here without the fundamentals," or "I
played football and was pampered and slid through
high school," or "I came down here without hav-
ing learned how to study" are almost bromides; but
too often they indicate a real and most unfortunate
condition.
Numerous teachers in grade and secondary schools
instruct as though they had no expectation that
their pupils were ever to go beyond their own
course, or at most their particular school. The proc-
ess of education under such an attitude is a dead
wash; the brilliant pupil is held down, the backward
simply returned to do the work over or slipped by
without attempt to remedy his fault.
Organizations such as the Schoolmasters' club
which is here for its fifty-eighth annual session are
by far the best guarantee of more intelligent prepa-
ration of students for life and for college work.
The scientific best, rather than merely the medi-
ocre, is by such conventiones set up as the stand-
ard; a real appreciation of his function in society is
brought back to the teacher; and ideals are instilled
in him to replace the work-a-day trade attitude
which has stilted education in the past.
Having heard the number of students who bit
on the great April Fool hoax and called for their
Daily subscription money Friday, the state fish
warden is thinking of establishing a branch hatch-
ery at Ann Arbor.
The TelescoPe
O-OO-ed to Spring
(Paid in full)
Spring comes ; spring goes ; we know not when.
It shines or snows, to suit no men.
Once our true B. V. D.'s we air,
Immediately the blast doth blare.
The sun, you say, shines bright and gay;
Ah! where's the rain of yesterday?
When week-ends come, the weather's bad.
Our work times are the best we've had.
So, spring has come, we're wont to say,
But, ere we know her, she's aWay.
I claim she comes trois times per day,
And, whilom witch, she will not stay.
