Teacher Little
Aid To Student,
Leacock States
"As a college teacher, I have long
realized that the teacher, at best, can
do very little for the student," de-
clared Stephen Leacock, noted hu-
morst in an article published recently
in the Daily Princetonian. Mr. Lea-
cock, himself a college professor, set
forth his ideals of what a college
should be.
"The real thing for the student is
the life and environment surrounding
him," stated Mr. Leacock. "All that
he really learns, in a sense, he learns
by the active operation of his own
intellect, and not as the passive list-
ener to many lectures. For this act-
iye operation, what he needs most is
,the continued and intimate contact
with his fellows.
"Students must live, eat, smoke and
talk together. Experience shows that
it is in this way that their minds
really grow. Especially must they
live together in a rational, comfort-
able way. If a student is to get from
his college what it ought to give him,
a college dormitory, with the life in
com'mon that it brings, is his absolute
right. Any university that fails to
give it to him is cheating him. {
"If I were founding a university I
would found first a smoking room.
Then if I had a little more money in
hand, I would build a dormitory.
Then, after that, would come a decent
reading room and a library. After
that, if I had a little money left over
that I couldn't use, I would hire a
professor and get some textbooks."
