Carnegie Report jPrepared By Experts I
Stimillates IneStigaltiont Of
.State Conditions

As a result of a report prepared
some tinme ago by the Carnegie cor-
poration, specific work has been un-
dertaken by the; University Senate re-
garding the fuxtherance of adult ed-
ucation in the state of Michigan. A
report relating to the exact conditionsj
in the state has been made up by a fac-
ulty committee appointed for the pur-
pose, headed by Prof. W. D. Hender-
~son of the Extension division. Thej
total findings of the committee were'
related at the last meeting of he Senl-
ae, and the motion made and carried
that the conmmitee be continued for
further investigation.
The Carnegie report was made more
than i. year ago by a corps of work-
ers who had been put in the field for
the express purpose of studying the
adult education all over the country.
Some of the more 'salient facts dis-
covered were (1) that there were five
times as many adults pursuing some
form of extramu~ral study as were
registered in all schools and colleges
combined; (2) that 90 per cent of this.
work had to do with vocational sub-
jects; and (3) that enormous sums of
money were paid out annually for
certain types= of adult education
courses, and that a great part of this
money was :being wasted as far as]
actual benefits received were con-'
StJudy Is Of General Nature
Frederick W. Keppel, president of
the .Carnegie corporation, in a com-
ment uipon the report, said that such
a study as had been undertaken was
of a general nature only, and that
immense benefit might be derived"
fronm, separate studies carried on in
various parts of the country by. Ex-
tension departments and other organ-
ized bodies. He especially empha-
sized the importance of such a study
in a state si ilar to Michigan, where
t here are three geographical and four
economic sections.
The Senate committee was appoint-
ed by Presient Clarence Cook Little, j
and consisted of W. W. Bishop, lii-1
