SCHOLARS AM TEACHERS
AS PROFESSORS
Several months of work by the
Deans in Conference have cuhinated
in the report on academic qualifi-
cations for appointment and promo-
Lion to the faculty which was accept-
ed at the Monday meeting of the Uni-
versity Senate and will now be re-
ferred to the Board of Regents for
final action. Although the exact nature'
of the recommended changes has not
been made public, it is significant that
the Deans' report sugggests that'
"higher qualifications be required off
all candidates for faculty positions
and promotions." This is an essentiall
step forward toward President Bur-1
ton's ideal for Michigan-the highest
possible type of educator.
While it has been said by many
that the principal trouble with educa-
tion today lies with the student, not
the instructor, it is equally certain
that there has been too promiscous a
disposalof teaching positions among
persons hardly qualified to inspire
the mass of students now seeking a
higher education. Persons with no
previous experience in teaching, with
little besides a Bachelor of Arts de-
gree to qualify them have been in-
stalled to start freshmen off on their
rhetoric and other beginning subjects.
These so-called instructors have in
many cases latent possibilities as
teachers or scholars, but they are
tpermittedto start active "steward-
ship" before they have had time ade-
quately to prepare themselves.
Another travesty on our system of
University education and its recogni-
tion of scholarly achievement has
been the promotion of individuals to
the rank of associate and full pro-
fessorships before they had proved
themselves worthy. Men who have
done little or no 4cholarly work,
who have been in the teaching pro-
fession a comparatively short time
have been ranked with nationally
known scholars with years of ex-
perience.s'e eresult has been that
the title of professor has come to
mean little as an honor.,t
Tf i°, r'neolrragingf, then, to note thatI

"', ,,her qualifications" for fu- I
'rcmbers of the faculty. It is
obvious that such qualifications
should take somewhat the following
treid: the title of full professor
should indicate that the holder has
done some sort of scholarly work
which is recognized as outstanding
in his field of endeavor; he should
in addition have proved himself to be'
a good teacher, cne who can impart
his l-nowledge to students and be an
inspiration to productive study; pros-
pective instructors should be consid-
cr;d only if they have been success-
ful as teachers and have beeen award-
ed at least a Master of Arts degree.

Thanks to fate, the present disrupt-

AND "THE FOOL."
In the deceased Michigan Daily Sun-
day Magazine for November 11, 1923,
the drama editor labelled "The Fool,"
which is to appear at the Whitney
Theatre Saturday, December 6, very
flatly as the worst play in the English
language. At that time, of course,
he was very young, widely given to
sweeping gestures and bombastic in-
uendos. "The Fool," rather, to-day
stands as a consumate example or bad-
taste, equalled probably only by j
"Abie's Irislf Rose," "For All of Us,"
