.S. U. Professor Speaks at Phi1
Delta Kappa Initiation Bangaet
at Union
14 ES ENf0 11E:E EJDUCATION
OF INCM(PETENT CILDREI
Prof. Henry H. Goddard, head of
the department of abnormal psychol-
ogy o, Ohlio State university, denounc-
ed the present 'system of compulsory
education tn an address before more
than fifty members of Phi Delta Kap-
pa, national honorary educational Pra-
ternity, last-night in the Union.
Professor Goddard spoke at the ban-
quet which followed initiation of eight
men into the society at the annual
fall initiation. He is recognized as
one of the foremost authorities on the
subject of feeblemindedness in the
country today, having for many years,
before accepting his present post, con-
duted investigations at a bureau of
research on the question at Vineland.
N. J.
Eight Initiated
The banquet was preceded by initia-
tion in the afternoon. At that time
Carl Mayer, grad., who is teaching in
Flint; E. J. Willeman, grad., superin-
tendent of Owosso schools; W. O.
Shriner, grad.; A. A. Metcalf, grad.,
superintendent of Dundee schools;
James Bergman, grad., instructor at
DetroIt Teacher's college;Clair C.
Cook, '24Ed.; Edward Ellett, grad.;
and Forest Averill, grad., were re-
ceived into the society.
Guests at the banquet, invited in ac-
oordance with the custom of having
men from the literary college pres-
ent were Dean John R. Effinger, Prof.
Thomas Trueblood of the public speak-
ing department, and Prof. H. A. Sand-
ers of 'the Latin department.
Professor Goddard in a speech punc-
tuated with humor, characterized the
system of compulsory education now
in vogue by the proverb "you can lead
a horse to water but you can't make
him drink."
Compalso'ey .ITeaehing Unwise
"The fault with the present sys-
tem," said the speaker, "is that it has
tried to compel children to learn who
could not learn. This is done 'under
the faulty doctrine that all men are
born equal."
He further pointed out that: "For
every college student in the United
States there is an idiot; for every per-
son who is capable of doing college
work, there are two who are not; for
every high school student, there are
two who can not do that work." Ten

CooldedOposed
To German Charity
W.shington, Dec. 7-(By A.P.)-
Any aid given Germany by the U. S.
should, in the opinion of President
Cooidge be furnished on a business
bass rather than as a matter of char-
ity. .'
This statement of the President's
views made at the White House to-
day after a conference between the
executive ;and Ambassador Wiedfeldt
of Germany was taken as indication
that Mr. Colidge would not at this
juncture favor an appropriation for
German relief such as that proposed
in a bill introduced yesterday by
Senator Irvine Lenroot, Rep., Wis-
consin.
