Rehitions etw en High Schools And
Universties Discussed Before
Schoolmasters' Club
"The educators of the country, as
the overseers of the dispensation' of
the money of tax-payers, have the
right to, and must in the near future,
enter the lives of the students during
their leisure hours as well as school
hours," was the statement of Pres-
ident Clarence Cook Little in his ad-
dress on "The High School From the
Viewpoint of the University" before
the Michigan Schoolmasters' club last
night in Hill auditorium.
"Because of the complexity of ours
civili7ation," he continued, "we cannot
allow students whose 'parents are
bearing only a small part of the cost
of educating them, to be pirates in
their leisure time. It is our right and
duty to know what our students are
going in the time outside of school,
both after hours and during the sum-
mer vacations. We must get away from
the idea that schools are only a con-
Hight School Needs Iowin
President Little then went on to
outline some of the ways in which the
high schools must advance to the
place where they are meeting the re-
quirements that the advance of the
modern universities demand. He
stressed the point that the universities
must interest themselves in, and must
consider more than, the "subject-mat-
ter learning" of the prospective en-
trant. "The ordinary high school," he
said, "has developed no technique of
'measuring the attitude of the student.
And it is this, more than those things
that be has 'learned from booksthat
will determine his achievements and
his conduct in college."
In following this line of thought
the President said, "The high schools
must stop trying to stuff 305 page
chemistry books into the minds of stu-
dents during the course of a single
semester. Ratheiy they must give the
student one or t{ o problems that give
him a real understanding of the sub-
ject and its practice and then spend
the rest of the time teaching him how
he may find out the things that he
wants to know about the subject." Only
through following this method he in-
dicated, would the high schools be
able to send to the universities stu-
dents capable of being oriented.
Ability Is Desired
"The high schools must be able to
send to us," President Little reiterat-
ed, "students whose ability they can
guarantee. And this guarantee they I
will only be able to give us after they
have developed some sound method I
of finding whether or not the student
has a superior attitude and superior
ability." As a way of obtaining this
understanding and this method of
measurement, the President suggested
that experimental high schools be es- I
tabshmed in various parts of the
state and that these experimental
schools have the privilege of sending,
admittedly as an experiment, students
whose ability and attiutde they had
tested to the Universiy.
In attemtning to more evenly dis-
tribute the faults of the present sys-
tem, the President said that some of
the blame for the overcrowding of the
courses in the high schools was due

to the demands of the universities. The I
universities he said, are always cry-
in, for more, more, more material in
the courses. And for this reason the
high schools have been raising their
"From these things." he said in clos-
ing. "it. can be seen that the universi-
tes should have more than a little
finger in the pie-they shouldat least
have a whole hand. And the high1
school and the college must go to-
gether, progressing and regressing to-
gether. and meeting the demands ofI
education for the people."
The other event of the evening wasI
the reading of a paper by Edwin L.
Mill-, superintendent of the schools
of Detroit. The subject of the paper
was "The University from the View-
point of the High School." It dealt
mainly with the faults of the univer-
sities and suggested as a change that
the colleges develop a new democrat-
iration, that the drop the slogan "The
devil take the hindermost" and adopt



More than a mile of specially pre-
pared fireproof crepe paper has been
ordered to cover the ceiling of Bar-
bour gymnasium for the 16th annual
Architect's May Party which will be
held Friday, May 6. Small scale de-
signs of the wall panels are being
done by the committee in charge -of
execution, and when finished will be
transferred to the gymnasium, cover-
ing the entire 3,000 square feet of
wall space with huge colorfulspaint-
ings of unusual flowers, plants, gar-
den bugs and animals, elves, goblins,
toad stools, and spiders.
One of the features of the decora-
tions for this year's May Party is the
entrance to the ballroom. A large
and massive tree trunk, whose sides
are covered with brightly covered
fungi has been devised, and entrancef
to the dance floor will be gained by
walking through a secret passage of
colorful toad stools among the roots
or the tree trunk.

The whole decorative scheme of the
gymnasium will be of such massive
proportions as to make the dancers
seem like small elves frolicking in a
fairy garden.
The ceiling of the gymnasium will
be covered with vari-hued crepe pa-
per, over which will be hung many
streamers to give the effect of a cob--
web. Lights will be placed above the
web, and underneath the large paint-
ed flowers, among which huge spiders
and snails are lprking.
Winstead's colored orchestra which
has been engaged to play for the af-
fair, will have mushrooms for seats,
and will play under a large truncated
surface which will appear to take
root in the floor.3
Seats of toad stools, garden snakes,
spiders, plants, flower pots, and snails
will be scattered throughout the gym-
nasium for the convenience of the
dancers when they wish to rest.

Cooper, Other Wolverine Entry, Falls

Hurdles of Ifrst 'fay's Events
(Special to The Daily)
PHIA, Pa., April 29.-Ted Hornberg-
er, Michigan's star distance man,
took second in the special two mile
race here this afternoon in the first
day of the thirty-third annual Penn-!
sylvania Relays while Cox of Penn:
iState won the event in the good time
of 9 minutes 32 seconds. The two'
mile field was one of the best as-
sembled in'years. k
Don Cooper, other Wolverine entry
in today's events, failed to qualify in.
the 120 yard high hurdle race. This,
was a distinct surprise, as the Michi-
gan star was given an excellent
chance of winning in view of hisF
showing at the Ohio Relays a week
ago. Cooper drew a poor lane, being
forced to run next to a wall.

was then that the westerners opened
up. Dixon, beginning to show signs ofI

was replaced by Lambert.
The next man went to first onaa

put out, but the next man hit the ball
for two bases and knocked in a run.
A walk, hit and an error filled the
bags. Davis, midget Michigan catcher,
clouted the ball far out in center for a
home run and four runs. This was:the

No water poured through the levees
because the cave-in occurred on the
other side and did not cause the whole

. A break at or near South Bendj
would virtually complete the flooding
of southeast Arkansas, already large-
ly under water from Tesdleton break
of the Arkansas levee system.
Should the Glasscock levee let go,
most of the lower section of Concor-
dia and Catahoula parishes would be{
flooded. These lands lie between the!
Mississippi and the Olds and Red riv-
ers and already are under consider-
able back waters.'
Meanwhile, acute situations were re-
