FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1927
Night Editor-J. STEWART HOOKERt
loge thus far has been almost entirely
by chance rather than logic, and the
remarkable thing about it all is that
our institutions of five and ten thou-
sand students are able to fulfill their
functions as well as they do.
Mass education issues a challenge
to. educators and practical men
throughout the country. Mr. Work
himself is probably wrong in suggest-
ing that the cost of education should
be raised to eliminate the unfit, for
after all, there is very little relation
between economic solvency and intel-
lectual capability. Some rational so-
lution is bound to come; and it is only
through the application of sound
thinking and analytical criticism,
such as Mr. Work's, that this solution
can be r ached at all.
Obviously the ideal state is general
education without mass education. It
is plain that the University should al-
low development of individual in-
itiative and interests which is not
possible under the present practice.
It is plain that forcing the majority
of responsible students to wait for
the minority of irresponsible and un-
intelligent students, as now practiced,
is a poignant defect with present edu-
cational methods and administrators.
All these problems and more, must be
solved if American education is to re-
turn to the idealistic standard in
which spirit it was founded.
It is barely two hundred years since
the first university was founded in the
United States, and yet, at the present
time, half of the college population of
the world is enrolled in American
schools. This condition has come
about suddenly since the war. Ameri-
can education has not had time to
develop its methods to ,meet the in-
coming tide, and the res/ult is large
and glaring defects-defects of in-
struction, policy, and student develop-
Michigan, by her proposed Univer-
sity college, has taken the lead in at-
tempting to solve these problems.
Other universities are awake and ex-
perimenting. Whatever the outcome
of these various trials may be, they
deserve the unqualified support of
every person interested in the future
of higher education, for through them,
and through them, alone, can the
American universities lose the defects
of mass education.
BEHIND TIlE LINES
The sage of Philadelphia, H. L,
Mencken has recently given his appro-
bation of another war, to be fought
as soon as it can be arranged, in
order that his craving for excitement
may be satisfied. Mr. Mencken can
see no harm in great conflicts, says
that the horrors of battle have been
greatly exaggerated, that the music
of guns is fpod and drink to the sol-
dier, and that such a precipitation is*
necessary to stir the world-of which
he is a member-out of its stupid
The great following that has ac-
crued to the critic through his
courageous and scornful denunciation
of dead fundamentalism is apt to be
tardy in supporting him on such a de-
mand. Most of his circus parade
broadsides loosed at things and people1
that' the modern world has outgrown
have seemed to have something of'
sincerity behind them, and have heldl
the field for that very reason. But
even the most broad-minded of his
readers must put his tongue in his
cheek when he reads such a bulletin
as this last. It can almost be billed
as a public display of asininity wheni
a man who is past the military age,+
with no war record, sits back in his;
chair and calls for bloodshed on the
grounds that soldiers are not happy
without it and that he himself would
rather see - from Philadelphia of

each 'others throats than anly vision

for world prosperity.
PEACE IN RESERVE
President Coolidge has remained
non-committal on all plans of world
peace that have been submitted to him
so far, although he has recently dis-
played interest in that one presented
by Wickham Steed, an English editor.
Ihe Steed idea called for an agree-
ment on the part of the United States,
not in conjunction with any other na-
tion, to give no aid to a country in-
rolving itself in a conflict through its
>wn aggression. This would mean, of

ONWA RI), EDUCATION!
"The University of the future must
leave the task of preparation to the
high school and the college," Secre-
tary Hubert Work, of the Department
of the Interior d:eclared recently in a
speech to the University of Pennsyl-
vania alumni. "By this method 'it can
riditself of the unWeildy masses of
unfitted students and' perform its
proper function in the fields of pro-
fessional training and the discovery
of new truths," lie continued.
Thus the problem of mass educa-
tion, ever growing in the outlying
educational districts of the country,
has come to the attegtion of the
educational officials at Washington.
Mr. Work assumes that this increase
is due to the increase in prosperity,
which is probably correct. Being es-
sentially a practical nman, Mr. Workf
also correctly concludes that the tre-
riendous public sums spent on higher
education should not be wasted.
"Thie title has come when economic
necessity as well as sound educa-
tional procedure requires clear defi-
nition of institutional..ftnctions. We
can not afford to take long forward

education until we can answer, more

Now it is generally accepted by all

CHILDREN OF THE WIND: A
Novel by Doris Peel; Houghton Miff-
lin; 1927; 305 pages. Courtesy of the
( West Wind Lending Library.
A review, by David Seheyer.
Those who like their novels well
ordered, ,rising to a thrilling climax
on page 234, with all the characters
named and numbered according to im-
portance and with the family happily
reunited in the last. chapter, will find
I no appeal in "Children of the Wind."
This novel is for you who delight in
inconsequential incidents, charmingly
told, who appreciate unimportant peo-
ple aptly depicted, who think life is
greater than plot in any book.
The only unity is the all over-
shadowing influence of Roger Blythe, !
the radical editor who never did any-
thing little. In moments of stress his
children, Justine and Bryce, always
harked back to his brave smile and
then laughed at fate and littleness.
His fluttery wife, Nellie, although she
never really knew him, remembered
him as a sort of ideal, to be adored
and unquestioned. Joan, too, felt his
presence-Joan, the daughter of Mr.
Blair, and the nicest person in the
book, dreaming, running away, talk-
ing strange child wisdom, always
loyal, always unafraid.
