ever, this latter difficulty, at least, could easily be
overcome by the introduction of a few of the rac-
ing outfits found in the typical American college
Without compulsory attendance or nerve racking
written finals, with cigars and an invitation to stay
as long as you want for $8o, who doesn't wish he
were going to college in Holland? We don't. But
with some of the glowing features above outlined
engrafted in it, wouldn't the American university
become a real students' paradi'se?
A cut appears in the rotogravure section of -a
Sunday paper to the effect that "Henry Jones is the
youngest freshman ever to enter Siwash univer-
sity." Four years later another cut appears say-
ing that "Henry Jones is the youngest student ever
to graduate from Siwash university," and the biog-
raphy of a youthful prodigy is written, except for
the death notice which mentions this fact under a
medium-sized head in a local newspaper. Such is
the case in the majority of such phenomenons.
It is a natural, though regrettable fact that most
precocious youngsters fail to attain eminence. The
prodigy's very youth, which- would seem to give
him a great advantage over his fellows, is his worst
handicap. He lacks experience, knowledge of men,
physical growth. Often his brilliance is mere re-
ceptivity - he cannot apply his knowledge to the so-
lution of particular problems. Socially he is at a
disadvantage, for he is too young to be really a
member of hi's own generation.
Psychologists are continually advocating that
exceptional children be given exceptional training,
that their extraordinary abilities be cultivated 'and
directed. This is a laudable effort to make the best
use of such unusual capacities, but it may well be
doubted that the effort will succeed unless. some
provision is made for their entrance into the more
serious activities of life at a mature age. It seems
the part of wisdom to allow these individuals the
same time to develop their faculties that is allowed
the average person, and let them acquire more
knowledge in that length of time and develop them-
selves more fully.
In the meantime it would be well to collect fig-
ures on the accomplishments of the exceptional stu-
dent in the outside world in order to have a solid
basis for educating the prodigy in the most efficient
manner, and for determining if he is worthy of
special effort.
A recent issue of the McGill Daily, of McGill
university, Montreal, Canada, contains a column of
"Intercollegiate Notes" giving news of California,
Indiana, Arkansas and other American colleges and
This frank informal recognition of American ed-
ucational insetitutions is gratifying as showing that
the college men of the two countries, which have so
much in common and have at all times in the past
been friendly, are drifting closer together. The
McGill-Syracuse game is another evidence of the
same tendency. Only good can arise from such ex-
changes by those in both countries with an interest
in college life, and they should not be allowed to
die out for lack of encouragemnt on either side of
the border.

Michigan 7, Wisconsin 7, tersely tells the story of
the hardest game on the latter part of the 1921
Maize and Blue gridiron schedule. Matched with
undefeated Wisconsin on a field of mud the Wol-
verines, "doped" to lose, held their hard-hitting op-
-ponents to- a tie.
Indecisive contests are always dissatisfying. By
defeating Wisconsin Michigan would have come
out indisputably as one of the Conference's best, if
not a title holder. Yet it can't be denied that the
Badgers have a wonderful team. And it is no small
glory to have held it for a tie.
Though the score has not come up to our hopes,
in its refusal to accept defeat in spite of recog-
nized odds, Michigan's fighting team has really
come little short of victory. With the game going
against it, it only redoubled its efforts equaling
the mark of the Badgers, only to be stopped by
equal doggedness and determination on the part of
its opponents.
Michigan 7, Wisconsin 7 - the game will always
be remembered as a great battle between two fight-
ing teams.
Consider any institution out of its natural selting
and if it has any human qualities it will have fea-
tures so different from those familiar to the ob-
server as to be amusing. The customs of Eton col-
lege, or at least the costumes of these English col-
legians with their high hats and queer coats, strike
the American student as humorous. And probably
our unrestrained conduct at football games would
seem equally odd to the young Britisher.
° the same vein Dutch universities, as recently
pictured by Prof. Ernst Cohen, of the University
of Utrecht, 'seem to'approach the popular idea of a
students' paradise. "Attendance to lectures and
laboratory work is not compulsory old no written
examinations are given," reads the account. What
more could the "pipe" hunter desire? and, "When
the final takes place the student may receive his
diploma although he may have been too nervous at.
the critical moment to answer satisfactorily". How
many of us are "nervous" when taking finals!
Following the -description further, it appears that
Holland examinations are social affairs almost to-
tally devoid of the intense strain and business-like
atmosphere of the American counterparts. "First
the Oudent calls on each of his professors socially,
tea or other drinks (exactly what is not mentioned)
and perhaps a cigar being enjoyed". With such a
system here attendance taking would become un-
necessary, though the cigar problem might become
acute.: The Dutch tuition plan, also, gives no worry
to the seeekr of knowledge. By paying an $8o fee
he can take tall the courses he wants to fQr as many
years a.s he likes.
But this students' Eden is not without its small
Irawbacks. "'These universities have no inter-col-
egiate sports except rowing contests and the uni-
versity buildings are so far apart that students have
tq go from one -class to another on bicycles. How-

To a Pyramid
(Shades of Fine Arts I.)
O monument of an immortal past,
Thou which hast stood through all the blast
Connecting link between the past and present;
What hands six thousand years ago
Erected the huge blocks that form thee,
What men breathed forth their last
To make thee monarch of the ages?-
Men in passing come and look on thee,
Still others comeand pass along,
But thou dost stand serene in all thy glory.
What dost thou care if all creation jdie ?
Thou shalt live on forever; yea, until
The world shall falter on its axis thou shalt stand,
A monument unto the memory of man.
