Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The need for a revision of the sys-
tem in which history is given on the
campus has long been felt by many
students. This need has especially
been manifexsted by students who
have but a limited time to devote to
the study of history. A student, seek-
ing a, fair knowledge of the history of t
mankind, must at present devote at
least three years in order to get a
smattering of that subject. At the
end of that time his piece-meal study
of history leaves his mind in a loose,
unorganized state. The blame for I
this condition lies not in the prpofes-
sors or the text-books but in the
method in which history is taught.
A one year course in history deal-
ing with the progress of civilization
is the pressing need today. The aimsk
of such a course should be to stir po-
litical and social thinking, create in-
telligent discussion, and seek more
interpretation and less facts. A con-
tinuity and a connected conception of
history should be emphasized.
There is undoubtedly much to be
said in opposition to the new innova-
tion. Are the mental capacities of
the average student fitted to pursue
such a course? Can a year's treat-
ment of civilization cover the field
of history that justly requires so many
years of study? These questions and
others tht may arise aen only be
squarely met with a knowledge of ex-
isting conditions. D. K.

One of the most interesting ques-
tions of the day relates to the nature De
of the direct causes which have led to
the somewhat widespread feeling in is
our nation that many young people are hS
r eceiving higher education who are a
not profiting by it. The late agita-Efl
tion of the University of Chicago fac- ho
ulty for a more select or "highbrow"
enrollment is typical of the movement d
which would eliminate the further i
graduation of so-called "educated g
simpletons" from American universi-n
ties and colleges.
"Grinds" as the term is ordinarily ta
understood, are no longer wanted at'
Chicago. The type of student desir- a
ed is of a high mental capacity, the
man who can learn quickly without
excessive "grinding" or over-applica-
tion to books. If the demands of the
faculty are met, incomfng studentsA
will have to pass a mental test which A
will demonstrate their mental abili-
ty, and will determine whether or nots
they can profit by a university educa-
tion. In addition to the mental test,
the applicant for admission must spend H
several minutes in an interview with d
minutesorwhowill "size himt up" dT
and determine his mental alertness. a
A great storm of protest is expect-,
ed from students and alumni, since it
is feared that the new plan if in-
stituted will interfere with the ath-
letic prowess of the University as
well as with its social activities
