(By E. G. W.)I
A movement for the use of movihg
pictures as visual education, is now
being considered by the heads of the
various university departments. These
educational movies have already been
used as an aid in demonstrating medi-
cine, forestry, and general summer
Movies adapted for use in all col-
leges are being made by the Society
For Visual Education in Chicago. ThisI
society was formed for the study of
means of visual instruction in classes.
All of the pictures are originated and
chosen by committees composed of col-
lege professors who are experts in
their line of work. From the Univer-
sity of Michigan Professor V. C.
Vaughan is a director of the company,
Professor Whitney, of the educational
department, is an adviser, and Profes-
sor C. 0. Sauer, of the geography de-
partment, is a member of the Geogra-
phy committee.
Prof. Sauer says, in discussing the
movement, "This organization fur-
nishes a new type of moving picture
machine, which is very efficient and
inexpensive, to the different colleges
using the service. Special slides for a
professor's own course are quite pos-
sible to obtain, but to have special
fWms is almost financially impossible.i
To produce a useful film a special1
staff composed of men of education,
skilled producerscapital, and com-
mercial distributors are necessary.
That is the reason that the cooperation
of such a service is unusually valu-
Aid to Geography
"I my own course of geography
moving pictures would be quite useful.
For instance, they could explain and
show the character of New York as a
port much easier and better than could3
be done simply with lectures. There
is also a bureau of education at Wash-t
ington which has an extensive supply
of film material on forestry, showing
the methods used in fire fighting, tree
saving and the like. This could be
used quite nicely by the forestry de-
partment of our university, I imagine."
The movies whic were used in the
last summer session were mostly inj
relation to history, showing how the
early French and English settled on
the North American coast, moved up
the St. Lawrence, and farther. west;
how the Revolutionary war progressed,
and other historical films. Prof. T. E.
Rankin, of the rhetoric department,
attended all of these summer session
moving pictures, and, in judging them,
said, "I think educational movies would
be very good as a reenforcement to
courses in geology, civics, history, and
rolitical economy. The only limitation
that I could see to the films last sum-
mer were that they were not humanized
Walter B. Pillsbury. professor of
psycology, when asked if the movies
would be of benefit to his course, re-
plied, "We might be able to use pie-
tnres showing the process of manufac-
tre in industries. If it were possible
to make pictures of a man's mind at
work. they would be invaluable to the
course. Otherwise slides answer the
purpose iust as well."

(By G. L. S.)
In a recent interview, Prof. Mor-
timer E. Cooley, Dean of the Engi-
neering college, expressed his view-~
point of present university courses.
"College curricula lay too much
stress on the material aspects of
higher education, with too little de-
velopment of a man's sense of art and
culture," he stated.
Knowledge Limited
"The trouble with the modern uni-
versity," he continued, "is that it has
too much pick and shovel work and
not enough cultural study. When a
man gets out of the Engineering col-
lege or Business administration he
knows how to make a good living and
that's all he does know.
"When an industry hires a man to-
day it takes him for general knowl-
edge as well as his purely technical
knowledge. There are all kinds of men
to do an engineering job and do it
well, but there are few who are ac-
quainted with enough outside subjects
to make an appeal to the present day
employer. If we grant that a college
bred man will manage to make money,
how is he going to enjoy it without
developing the capacity of apprecia-
Chances Equal
It is not, however, Dean Cooley's
opinion that the chances of a college
man to achieve success financially are
any better than those of the non-col-
lere man. He backs his assertion by
referring to a comparison of the grad-
uates in Ann Arbor and the business
man about town, believing the same
proportion tands for any town, and
pointing also to Henry Ford as a
notable example of money-making
without higher education
Cheer Up
(Bruce enson)
Whe everything goes against you
Ard life seems dull and gray,
All your aorrows and griefs undo
And chirp some cheery lay.
For et your troubles and be merry,
'Tis care makes men grey haired.
Ther just for one wee moment tarry
And see how well you fared.

"In memory of the 'buddies'
who were with us before the war,
served be.ide us in the ranks, and
were called to make the great
sacrifice, we, the ex-service men

swer roll to the last man, in uni-

That is the decision which every

There may be the birth of a notion
in the mind of the downy-lipped
freshman as he scuttles about the
campus that Verhaps yon man raking
leaves will come in for his share of
those precious dollars. Here our fresh-
man has given up so many yen with-
out a whimper to further his chance
of some day being met by a brass band
in his home town, and he's entitled to'
know where they're going. Why, he
doesn't pay out all these war taxes
with less knowledge of where his
money will end up than he does that
first plunge.
Now our freshman doesn't for a mo-
inent suspect that fraudulency or em-
bezzlement will thin his stock. The,

the same for all departments of the
school. Medical students paying a fee
for bones assume the risk that they
may be loaded.
