I NNTS DISCUSSION GRUPS
Faculty Member Advocates Informal
Meetings Between Students
and Teachers.
To the Editor of The Michigan Daily:
On a recent visit to the University
of Toronto, it was my good fortune
to see a number of the activities in
connection with their "Union," and
to have a discussion with the War-
den, Mr. J. Burgon Bickersteth, con-
cerning the purposes of their Union.
Among other activities, there is one
of which, Mr. Bickersteth, who by the
way, is a graduate of Oxford, told
me. which I beieve could be very
profitably adopted by the Michigan
Union. This is the bringing together
of the undergraduate, the graduate,
and the faculty in a close personal
relationship.
This idea is patterned after the
English University system of having
the student meet his tutor. At Tor-
onto they are not carrying it to quite
that extreme, instead the instructor
meets the students in small discussion
groups of fewer than a dozen.
Personal Contact Valuable
It has seemed to me in the few
years that I have been at the Uni-
versity of Michigan that this is one
phase of our colege life which has
been sadly neglected and that there
is need for suchaa practice here. I
do not believe that the average stu-
dent here appreciates the value of the
nersonal contact with the men who
have attained distinction in their va-
ous fields, for the reason that too
few, if any, have had that privilege.
During my own undergraduate days
In a Western university, about a
third the size of this one, I was for-
tunate enough to come in contact with
at least three groups of students and
faculty. As I look back at those
days, I believe that I received more
inspiration from those meetings than
from some of the formal courses that
I took under some of the same men
who happened to be in the groups. I
qt least found out that a faculty man
is human and that his experience
along various lines in his own field
of work and in his travels can be a
source of enjoyment and value. I
mis these meetings very much here
at Michigan. and I believe that the
student who leaves this University
without having had such an oppor-
tunity misses one of the most im-
nortant things which could happen to
him in his college life.
Union Could He
As to the way that the Union could
function in solving this problem, I
would suggest that certain men on
he faculty announce informal dis-
I ussion groups to met at regular
periods and that the topics for dis-
cussion be of a general enough nature
so that not only the advanced. but
even some of the beginning students
who were interested in that partic-
,lar field could get something out of
t. I believe that many students would
be interested in groups which dis-
,mssed politics, history, philosophy,
iterature, archaelogy, science, art
and m'any other things. I believe
that if the right individuals started
is custom that they would attract
many students to these groups who
were not specializing in that partic-
ular field but who believed that n
educated man should know something
about a great many subjects. I am
sure that it would stimulate many
,md that they would find as much
enjoyment and much more profit than
they do at the present in spending
ther leisure hours at movies and pool
halls.
Students Favor Plan
From conferences which I have had
with students, I am convinced that
many need such an intellectual stim-
ulus, and that many would welcome
such an opportunity. Cannot some of
the purely social activities and vari-
ous organizations which are taking
up the club rooms at the Union be
limited if there is not sufficient room
at the Union at present-and this

latter be substituted? Cannot some
of the Universitysclass rooms be
thrown open for such groups! Can-
not the members of the faculty throw
open their homes for such meetings?
I am convinced that this idea is
worth while and that the stimulation
of intellectualinterest which would
