THE BULWARK OF DEMOCRACY
In the multifarious comments on
conditions in modern American uni-
versities and colleges both by our
own citizens and those of other coun-
tries, by far the larger amount of
criticism is devoted to the students.
The younger generation of seekers
after learning is generally given full
responsibility for the faults of edu-
cation.
Most of such comment is quite jus-
tified. As has been said miany times
the problem of the uncultured student
is only the outgrowth of the distinctly
American experiment-mass educa-
tion. It is inevitable that the hetero-
geneous mass of students, the ma-
jority of whom have had few advan-
tages in their early life, should have
little or no understanding of the true
aims and purposes of higher educa-
tion.
There is, however, another aspect of
this mass education that most critics
fail to take into account: namely, the
lack of a sufficient number of com-

petent teachers to inspire these
masses to study., While it is true that
there are just as many able scholars
and teachers as there ever were-
probably there are many more-the
increase in their responsibilities and
the relative decrease in their remun-
eration are generally overlooked.
Such a condition has resulted in the
general lowering of the average, com-
parable even to the much over-empha-
sized decline in the student personnel.
This is recognized in the annual
President's report to the Board of
Regents, the salient point of which is
the statement that the greatest need
of universities today is better teach-I
ing. In his own words:
"Our universities have increas-
'ed their enrollment enormously,
and education has assumed the
aspect of a wholesale business.
Faculties have had to be rein-
forced by unseasoned recruits.
These conditions have been fol-
lowed by sins of omission on our
cart-failures to adopt obvious
remedies."
Prominent among these failures isl
the fact that salaries of faculties have'
not been. increased proportionatelyI
with the increased cost of living andI
the advance of the scale of wages in
other professions. It is practically
impossible for the teaching profession
to attract the best men and women
so long as the amount paid for life-
long services is so ridiculously low.,'

SOLEMN ADVERTISIN
There are two productions which
you must not miss, not necessarily
because they are significant and art-
istic but solely on their value as in-
teresting, intelligent entertainment.
One is "Sancho Panza" this evening
in the Whitney theatre with Otis
- Skinner in the leading role. The play,
staged by Richard Boleslawsky and
decorated by James Reynolds, has
been praised by practically every New
York critic, and has been a constant
success for the last two seasons on
the road. According to the reviews,
it is much of an extravaganza with
lavish settings and costumes, some-
thing of a musical revue, something
of a melodrama, something of a com-
edy.
The other attraction, of course, is
the German motion picture, "The Last
Laugh," to be presented Tuesday and
Wednesday evenings in Hill audi-
torium. Its recommendations are al-
most sensational, ranging from Mor-
dant Mall of the New York Times to
Gilbert Seldes of The Dial. Of them
all, however, Robert Sherwood, the
nearly infallible movie critic of Life,
has been the most enthusiastic. "Here
is a marvelous picture," lie says,
