Burton Unusual
Un dergr lad uate
(By Norman C. Damon)
When President Marion L. Burton
in his inaugural address, laid stress
oi getting more of the student's in-
terest in his work, as well as his play,
he knew from his own undergraduate
experience whereof he spoke.
A Phi Beta Kappa man, participat-
ing in athletics, and excelling in pub-
lic speaking, President Burton was
an outstanding man even in his un-E
dergraduate days, stated Dr. Donaldl
J. Cowling, president of Carleton col-
lege, from which President Burton
graduated in 1900.t
"Because of his height, President
Burton made good at Arst base on thet
Carleton nine. He did not, however,1
participate in football, but was in
practically every other student activ-
ity on the campus. But the most re-t
markable part of it all was the factt
that he kept them in their proper re-
lation, majoring' as it was then term-Y
ed, in Greek and the classics, which
required good, consistent study," con-

Intellectual convictions which are the
common possession of all men of
science to whatever country they may
belong. Nationalism is expressive of
the people themselves, of their hopes
and passions, their health, their educa-
tion, their justice, their religion." Yet
education even in its lower strata, as
for example the common school, can
be made to have broad sympathies
which prepare for a reasonable inter-
nationalism. "Children are too young
to understand internationalism, but
they are not too young to have those
virtues instilled into them which will
make the world a happier place. These
are fortunately the very virtues which
will make their own home happier."
Throughout their history, Sir Robert
believes, universities have been centers
both of national culture and f inter-
national understanding. In three ways
particularly the universities of the
world may help to promote interna-
tionalism. They may continue the
mutually profitable interchange of
students between one country and an-
other-a means of special importance
to so cosmopolitan a school as the
University of Michigan; they may call
outstanding teachers of one country to
hold chairs in another; and they may
train their students to become genuine-
ly humane, to possess those intellectual,
moral, and social virtues which dis-
tinguish man as man, and which are
the accompaniments of a broad univer-
sity training.

One of the pressing problems in the
opinion of Dr. Garfield is the educa-
tion of our citizens to a point where
they will realize that in industrial dis-

decisions, in other words, to follow
that course which gives to the great-

Reviews Burton's Work
"There are four outstanding fea-
tures of Dr. Burton's great work at
Minnesota," said President L. D. Coff-
man, who after working with Presi-
dent Burton for five years, has suc-
ceeded him as president.
"First, he secured an $11,000,-l
000 appropriation for the university
and started with this, his second task,
a 10 year building program. The
third step was the strengthening of
the Minnestoa faculty by the addi-
tion of several great men. The other
outstanding feature of his work was
the starting of a "Better Minnesota"
movement, which has permeated the
spirit of the whole college, faculty,
and students."
"The inaugural procession was one
of the most beautiful sights that I
have ever witnessed," was the char-]
acterization of the morning ceremon-
ies by President L. A. Birge, of the!
University of Wisconsin.
In the opinion of Dr. Birge the edu-
cational conference eclipsed any like
meeting ever held.
Special Class for Soldiers
Questioned as to what adjustments,
the University of Toronto had made{
since the war, President Robert A.
Falconer told of the institution of
special classes for returned soldiers
of whom there were approximately
1,200. Sir Robert Falconer spoke of
the Hart house, similar to our Un-
ion, which was recently opened in
Toronto. This building, containing a'
swimming pool, theater, and dining
room accommodates 400 persons.
"American youths often meet with
a perplexing problem in making a
choice between an Eastern university,
such as Yale or Princeton, and a?

Western university of such standard
as the University of Michigan," said
Provost Williston Walker, of Yale unlh
versity. "Although much has been
said regarding the name and tradi-
tions of the Eastern school, in my op-
inion for a man to have about him as
friends and associates alumni of the
university of which he is a graduate
is to add materially to his general
happiness and to his successful start
in life. For this reason I should put
this question to the prospective stu-
dent: 'In what part of the country
do you intend to take up residence,
following your graduation?'
"Of course, in the large cities of
the country, such as New York and
Ghlcago, alumni of practically every
large university of the United States
are to be found, but in the smaller
cities of the East and West, this con-'
dition is not generally true. The
stranger is apt to find himself stand-
ing relatively alone in affairs which
are of vital fnterest to other residents
of the community."

all that makes for the highest civili-
zation. From its walls miust come
prophets and statesmen, poets, engi-
neers and dreamers, all prepared for
good eitizenship.
Falconer Speaks
Sir Robert A. Falconer, president
of the University of Toronto, in his
address on "The University and In-
ternational Relationships," expressed
the opinion that in the inuence of
the universities is to be found one of
the best-founded hopes for the peace
of the world. "Internationalisn will
survive," he said, "and the universi-
ties themselves will be powerful fac-
tors in its permanence." Universities
have always been centers of national
culture and international under-
standing, he added.

State we must aim consciously and:
deliberately to assume our sha-e of
responsibility for the new American;
civilization which must inevitably de-
velop in this period of readjust'nent-
Our universities have failed to focus.
We have discussed and advocated all
'inds of educational aims, but none
has gripped the imagination of all of
them and none today emerges as pre-
dominant and comprehensive. That,
education must serve the state is a
doctrine that has been proclaimed
many times and in many places.
Edueational Aims
"Pecisely thet; what does this aim
involve? In one sense it will be mere-
ly the rebirth of original American
intentions.pIt will bring us back to
the principles upon which our educa-
tional system was established. It
meanstthat we must deliberately at-
tack the problem -.rising out of our
national unity.
"To share in this gigantic task de-
mands unusual insight and, if you
please, philosophical power. Our func-
tion is to select the permanent values
and idealize them. America must
have interpretation. If we may Judge
the interest and spirit of our people
by the things they do most, we must
begin to understand moving pictures,
dancing, motor cars, and machinery.
There is no need of railing against
these. Mighty elements of truth are
written in capital letters over these
factors of American life. The 'acad-
emic mind' may not see it but the col-
lege professor of today discerns it.
The university must interpret Amer-
ican life. America must have unifica-
tion, direction, interpretation. Herein
lies the specific duty of the univer-
"Now with this as the aim of our
service to be rendered to the state let
us ask precisely what concrete thing
should be done, what changes are nec-
essary and what meth-ds should be
adopted. Purey by way of illustra-
tion and with no thought of offering
either a complete or adequate.pro-
gram, I suggest four things:
Four Suggestions
"1-The work and teaching of the
university should be unified with our
primary aim full in view. In some
way the student will be given such
guidance that he will see the .rela-
tionship of his coarse one to the
other, to knowledge as a whole and
to life in its most practical relation-
"2-The curricula of our various
schools and college within the univer-
sity must be directed towards comm-
nity needs. In faot this tendency is
already in ail tide.
"3-The university must utilize defi-
nitely i ; cauipment and personnel for
reserch work in solving the prob-
le s of the state. In fact this Uni-
vevity should be the research center
of the state. Just so in every realm,
the university should serve the peo-
ple. With every problem of govern-
tuent, economics, sociology, art and]
education, the university should con-;

in the financial -are of the institution
and the distribution of its income.
"The ultimate justification of faculty
self-government is that the faculty in
question consists of a body of com-
petent experts .whose wills are dedi
cated to social service. When an in-
stitution has such a faculty, clearly
that faculty should have an effective
voice in administration. When an in-
stitution is without such a faculty, it
does not deserve the name of Univer-
