"The striking fact about America is
that more than any other nation, she
has been released from the past. Here
is at once her strength and her weak-
ness. Forward looking movements in
Europe are inevitably counterbalanra-
ed by the traditions of the past.
"In America a modern prophet could
truthfully proclaim, "My people are
destroyed for lack of knowledge," At
first thought, it may seem that, above
all nations, America has a passion for
education. We expend huge sums for1
the training of our youth. /At the pres-
ent moment more than 20,000,000
children are being trained at public
expense. Today as never before thea
people believe in schools.
The war revealed to literallymillions
of men that positions of leadership
and opportunities for service go to theE
men of training and knowledge. But
America suffers today from ignorance
more than any other single tyranny.
Our children may have knowledge of
the facts necessary for individual liv-
ing. Our youth may acquire profes-j
sional training of a high degree. Their'
minds, however, have not been focusedI
upon those truths which are so es-;
sential to a democractic .community.
The magnitude and diversity of our
country accentuates the problem.9
The multitude of our concerns smoth-1
ers our social instinct.
America Has Burdens!
"Here then is a hint of what Am-
erica is. She lacks unity. She has
burdens. She lacks unity. She hask
thrown off the limitations of the past1
and cast in her lot with the future.
She is ,just coming into her own. She
is terribly deficient in knowledge and
experience. She is rich in faith and
imagination. She believes in human
beings and worships worth.
"Our deepest interest, however,
must center in the teaching and in-
vbstigating staff. To be told that they
number 650 is enlightening. To re-
member the work they have done, to
appreciate the contributions they have
made to learning and to recognize the
powerful stimulus that they have been
to all that is highest and best in our

civilization, helps up to realize why
Michigan believes in higher learning.
The casual, superficial observer might
pause here and say these facts tell
us what the University is.
"If this observer remains for a year
he would find himself going deeper
and deeper into university life and
sensing more and more fully the mar-
velous intricate and complete thing
which thrives upon tAis campus.
Sooner or later he would essay a'
mental venture to which there wouldl
be no ending. Especially if he shouldl
interrupt his visit at tae university
by a trip out into the "real world," he
would be compelledto think upon
this subject. He will discover thel
campus a most powerful and enigmat-
ic influence. He would never be able
to fathom it. It never congeals. It is
th "academic mind." All in all, I'
should prefer to defend rather than'
attack the academic mind. I should
not want to be the president of any
university which did not suffer from
this disease in chronic form. It makes
for stability, for sound weighing of
evidence, for scientific scholarship,
for the absence of sentimentalism,
and for the frank recognition of a
powerful mind.

I am inclined to believe that we E
must charge against the academic
mind much of the dead formalism, andJ
mechanical externallity of Americant
education. I should dislike to tellI
here all that I think of the various
systems of admission which have been
in vogue in our universities. Surely
by these methods we have not intend-
ed to find real college material, but
rather to encourage the accumula-
tion of credits which will serve as
an admission ticket. At any rate we
have not encouraged intellectual in-
terests and recognized vital facts
which do not appear in record sheets.
Character, purpose, and spirit are
more important than skill to pass ex-
aminations or ability to secure a di-
ploma.
"When the student is once in the
University he is face to face, though
he sees ascthrough a mirror darkly,
with the 'academic mind.' The atmos-
phere of the average classroom is not
stimulating and inspiring. Doubtless
a variety of causes produces this gen-
eral situation and it Is manifestly un-
fair to attribute it to a single force
but we cannot deny the fact that the ! -
