Sub-committee To Present Complete
Observation On Suggestions s
For Improvement
Problems relating to the sources,j
salaries, advancement, and profes-
sional practice of teachers of the en-
gineering college will be considered
by the engineering faculty in its meet-
ing this afternoon, following the re-
port of a sub-committee on engineer-
ing teaching profession which will be,
given by Prof. H. E. Riggs, head of the
civil engineering department.
This report and the discussion
which will center about it constitute
the third phase of engineering educa-
tion which is being studied by thei
engineering faculty following the four
reports on the subject which were pre-
pared several years ago under the aus-
pices of the Carnegie foundation. {
Nelson Is Chairman
Four sub-committees under the gen-
eral chairmanship of Prof. J. R. Nel-j
son have studied these reports during
the first semester to get from them all
that might prove suggestive and con-
structive for the betterment of the
engineering college.
The summary of conclusions setI
forth in the report by the committee
on teaching personnel is as follows:
' Teachers of engineering subjects,
to be of greatest value as teachers,
ought to have from five to ten years of
engineering experience and practice
*before reaching the rank of professor.
"While in many cases it may 1ej
necessary to take men into the pro-
fessional departments as instructors
who have had no professional experi-
ence, it ought to be the policy to en-
courage such men to gain experience
in engineering work, especially if they
intend to adopt teaching as a life

Bonstelle Company Will Present Play
Of Jesse Lynch Williams At
Whitney Today
With entirely the same cast that is
playing in Detroit at the present time,
the Bonstelle company will present a
special matinee performance of "Why
Not?" by Jesse Lynch Williams, hold-
er of the fellowship in creative arts,
at 2:15 o'clock today at the Whitney
"Why Not?" is.the companion play
to "Why Marry?", the Pulitzer prize
play which was presented two weeks
ago by Masques with an all--campus
cast, and has many of the characteris-
c tics of the latter production. Both
are comedies with an underlying vein
of seriousness, and both have settingsl
that are distinctly modern. The chief
distinction between the two is that
while "Why Marry?", was a satire on
1marriage, "Why Not?" is chiefly con-
cerned with divorce.
The production of "Why Marry?"
was produced under the supervision
of Mr. Williams, and the companion
piece .by the same author makes it of
special interest. Mr. Williams, in
comparing the two plays, stated that
in "Why Not?" there is a situation of
more originality and interest than in

DETROIT, March 30.-"Imperfection
is the normal stepping stone to per-
fection," Dr. Clarence Cook Little to-
day told members of the department
of superintendents and school board
members of the Michigan State teach-
ers' association, to whom he talked
in the afternoon session of the three-
day assembly being held this week.
"It is absurd," he continued, on the
subject of interrelation between uni-
versities and intermediate schools, "to
teach high school pupils the work of
Dickens in their English courses as
it would be to expect them to learn
Einstein's theory of relativity in their
physics courses. High sch'ool children
normally read newspapers, magazines,
and comparatively recent novels, lit-
erature of the imperfect type. Dick-
ens and other such writers represent
the perfection of infinite labor. But
perfection to young people is dis-
"It is a good idea to have perfection
as a star to tie your wagon to, but
too much perfaction is indigestible in
the young mind. Great geniuses are
well for their ideals, but they won't
take them for their daily friends. To
attempt this is to commit the crime
of over concentration of which all of
our schools are guilty."
Dr. Little advocated, as a president
of a university, and one not having,
much contact with secondary school
systems, that curriculums of high
school work be simplified. "I would
like to see," lie said, "fewer things
taught, and those few taught thor-

(By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, March 30.-The demand
of Western Conference universities
that the Amateur Athletic union "keep
its hands off" Big Ten athletes until
they complete their intercollegiate
competition was renewed today by
John L. Griffith, athletic commissioner
of the Conference.
Within 24 hours after Murray, Hul-
bert, A. A. U. president; had retorted
to Z. G. Clevenger, athletic director of
Indiana university, who took the mat-
ter up with him can behalf of the Big
Ten coaches, Griffith issued a state-
ment, declaring that Conference ath-
letes get as much competition in the
athletic programs of their schools as
their coaches believe to be good for
them, and contrasting Hulberts at-
titude with that of the American Pro-
fessional Football league, which had
ruled that no college student may be
signed for professional football until
his graduation.

"Advertising should properly be re
ferred to s a business and not a pro-
fession," stated Gordon W. Kingsbury,
'11; yesterday afternoon at the seventh
vocational talk, given under the aus-
pices of the Student Christian as-

ued, "does not pay unless it has a
business background."
Mr. Kingsbury, who is advertising

mittee of the newly formed Electric

advertising is an economic waste. As
grounds for his stand he showed that

cerns continue to advertise, spending
$1,000,000,000 for that purpose last
- Special study in economics and his-
tory, and practicing writing whenever
possible, were set forth by the speak-
er as the best means of preparation
for the future advertising man.
