Recommends Definit Curriculuia For
Women Rtudents In Preparationi
For Future Motherhood
Recommendations for the selection
of entering students, methods of meet-
ing personal problems, revision of the
curriculum for women students, fresh-
man week for the proper orientation
of incoming students and a plea for
better research facilities were includ-
ed in the annual report submitted to
the Regents by President Clarence
Cook Little.
"It is really quite remarkable that
for so long a period the chief energies
of education have been directed to-
wards amplification and refinement
of methods of scholastic examination
alone. This is all the more surprising
when we realize that the term "ex-
amination" is here applied in its nar-
rower sense to include only those
tests which aim to record the degree
of proficiency possessed by the can-
didate in some one subject or narrow
field of knowledge. A real and last-
ing education cannot be obtained by
an individual whose character and
personality are not worth educating,"
the report states.
Defines EducationI
The President states further that
education involves concentration, im-
agination, seriousness of purpose, in-
dustriousness, courage and a number
of other qualities of character. "For
some reason this phase of a person's
fitness for college has been clearly
neglected. It is very unlikely that a
method can be devised which will give
us entirely reliable information con-
cerning a candidate before that can-
didate is admitted. We can, however,
look forward to the detection of some
who by lack of maturity or other de-
fects of character are clearly unfitted
cr ae tra , and by friendly
a vice to and cooperation with par-
ents either dissuade the candidate
from entering or postpone that event
until he has made a better prepara-
On the question of the revision of
the curriculum of women students in
the University, Dr. Little states,,
"there is no question whatever that
physical, physiological and psycholo g.
ical differences exist between men and
women. If men had developed a civ-
ilization in which their behavior, edu-
cation, and ideals were perfect or
-even clearly superior to those obtain-
ing for women it might follow that.
women were justified in imitating
with great zeal and precision the ac-
tivities of men. The sad fact is that
they have been engaged in imitation
rather than in the development of a
system of higher education peculiarly
fitted to their own needs. No matter
how emancipated women may become
some of them will have to continue
to be the mothers of the next genera-
Mentions Special Curriculum
President Little believes that for
the girls wIlo enter college with no
clear conception of their occupation,
information concerning production,
nature, care and education of children
is of prime importance, either directly
as mothers, or indirectly as intelligent
voting citizens qualified to assume
leadership in shaping public opinion
and legislation in these matters, or in
both ways. In connection with this
belief, he recommends a definite cur-

r .cul am. .
In this curriculum are principles
of natural science, structure and func-
t:on of the human body, elementary
care of the sick and several other
relative subjects.
Regarding the housing conditions
for students, the report makes this
observation, "The existing conditions
are only partly satisfactory. The so-
cial life and chances for forming real
and abidin friendships in the frater-
nities, sororities, and dormitories are

Local Team Takes First Two Places
In Every Event, Scoring 46 Points
To 13 For Visitors
Placing first and second in all
events but the diving contest Mich-
igan's swimming team defeated the
Michigan State college by a 56 to 1a E
score last night in the Union pool.
Capt. Paul Samson of the Wolverine
squad made the feature swim of the I
meet when he established a new na-
tional intercollegiate record in the 220
yard free style event. The record pre-
viously held by Bronson of Yale was j
timed at 2'21.3". This time was reduc-
ed by 4.4" seconds by Captain Sam-I
son, making the new record of 2'17.4"'.
Coach Hann's swimmers took the lead
in the first event when the 200 yard
relay team won over the State entries
and turned in a time of 1'39.1".
The closest race of the meet was
the 200 yard breast stroke. Shorr of
Michigan led the way until the last
lap when he was ovel-taken by a team
mate, R. Halsted who forged ahead
just enough at the finish to win by
a fraction of a second. The time for
the event was 2'51.8".
Ellinger, Michigan State, threatened
the Wolverine swimmers in the 100
yard free 'style when lie held the
lead for the first thre laps of the
tank. Captain Samson and Bement
closed up on the State man in the
third lap and Samson got the lead just
after the turn for the final length of
the pool. Samson then retained the
lead until the finish and Bement came'
in second. 59'1" was the time for this

same length of time, upholding the
negative. Professor Reed and Mr.
Eddy will then give 15 minute ?e-
buttals. There will be no judges and
no decision will be given. Prof. W. A.
Frayer will act as moderator.
The meeting at 3 o'clock this after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium
is a change in schedule from the
original program of Mr. Eddy's talks.
Has Talked Twice
Mr. Eddy has given two talks, the
first Sunday night in hill auditorium'
at which more than two thousand
were present. Natural Science audi-
torium was filled for his second talk
yesterday afternoon. At this meeting,
Mr. Eddy had planned to give a talk,
on "Dare We Think?" but due to a
bad cold he could only answer ques-
tions and gave more specific replies
on certain points of his previous talk.
The four points from which war
may come, according to Mr. Eddy in
his talk Sunday night, are Russia;
China, Mexico, and Europe, due to the
debt situation. In regard to the last,
Mr. Eddy said the breaking down of
Germany, which is predicted by econ-
omists for 1928, will cause the other
countrids to fail to meet payments
j on the debtcto United States and a
j round table comnference will be forced.,
He himself favored the cancellation
of debts in the Europeantcountries in
I proportion to the amount which they
reduced their armaments.
The three outstanding troubles
which Mr. Eddy saw in Russia were
the atheism, the lack of liberty, and
their affirmed purpose of a destructive
revolution which would affect the
world. He saw many things which
he commended, notably the decision
I of the self-sacrifice of the Communist
party by which they pledge them-
selves not to receive more than $3.75
a day. He favored recognition of the
government only on President Cool-
idge's three conditions: that Russia
j pay all her debts to United States,
that she repay all Americans who
lost money due to the overthrow of
Czarism, and that they repuidate their
plans for a world destructive revolu-
