CAMPUS OPINION LAI
Editor, The Michigan Daily:a
One assumes that a student paper IG
like yours is particularly open to the
appeal of justice. Mr. John Francis
Glynn, the "prison poet" ,says that
someone from Ann Arbor sent him
a copy of an editorial in The Daily of

was arrested in Chicago on the charge
of burglary, commenting on the read-

the Director of University Extension
states that this university, with num-
te hers probably the largest in the world,
and constantly increased through ex-
tension courses given by teachers in
nearly two thousand extramural cen-
ters, is not satisfied to reach only
f those within sound of the spoken
word. Undoubtedly the range of such
extension work will soon be vastly
increased by the use of the radio the
teacher being heard but not seen.
But Columbia desires to go further
and offer opportunities for home
study, insisting, however, upon a plan
"consistent with the traditions of
"Fabulous sums," .it is said in this
report, are made by institutionp or-
ganized on a purefy business basis,
because of the eagerness of American
youth for higher education. This
eagerness is not generally, however,
for pure instruction. It is known
iu. that, for the most part, the desire
is for something that will be immedi-
ately iseUI; and even when it does
look toward something beyond the
ultilitarian, it is toward credit for an
ell academic degree. In other wordis,
there appears to be very little home
study work which has for its object
simply adding to general knowledge.
The problem is to make all such
correspondence and courses at home
primarily educational carrying the
"culturad" and the practical along to-
gether, and giving some recognition
through examinations to those who
complete such studies. A beginning
at has been made in a series of busi-
ness courses, which may be made
educational as well as practically val-
er. uable, if only taught in the right
way. But however highly developed
the instruction becomes and what-
ever its content and scope, there is
no royal road for the student. He
must himself study. The voice of the
teacher may b$ extended far beyond
university walls without his leaving
his desk or his laboratory table. But
the student wA still have to pore
over the printed word. Together, the
extension of the teacher's voice and
home study may solve some of the
problems of the overcrowding of uni-
as- versities and colleges.
