University Head Citicizes Methods Of
Stnte Legislature In Sheving
Appropriation Bills
"Good acadenmic records during
high school and junior college days
are usually sufficient to entitle one
to enter a college or university, but
under the new system which was in-
auigurated at tie University of Michi-
gan last fall, amd which has been in
effect at the University of Maine for
thle past five years, a careful study
of tie character of entering students
is made," declared President Clarence
Cook Little in an address given last
evening at a banquet of the Bokers
amid Subdividers conference. '
"This system actually allows stu-
denits, who for some legitimate rea-
son could not maintain a high scholas-
tic mecord in high school, to enter the
Umniversity. It also results in the dis-
qualification of others who are credit-
edl with a good scholastic record in
preparatory schools, but who, because
of character deficiences, are not de-
sirable students," Presidemnt ittle
continmuer]. "To allow undesireable
students to spend the taxpayers'
money for an undeserved education is
a crime," he said, "and we do not pro-
pose to allow it."
About 130 colleges and universities
ini the United States are using a sys-
tem of orientatiomi similar to the one
ittroduced at Michigan last year. The
purpose of such -- system, President
Little said, is to acquaint tie incom-
ing students with metmbers of the
faculty and fellow students in oder
to eliminate homesickness. lie also
explained that the various tests given
during the first week of school would-
in a great measure eiminate fresh-
manl "nmortality."'
D~iscusses University College
Ini connection with the University
college which is being established,
'President Little said that because of
the fact that so many students enter-
ed college without any idea of what
profession they were going to pur-
sue, a method of establishing in the
student's mind an outline of the
courses beneficial to him was neces-
sary. Under the University college
the studlents will be divided into
groups according to their personal
interests, and each group will be afre an o p tuiy ob c me c-
quainted with men active in the pro-
fessioni or vocatiomn which the students
wish to follow, "thereby breaking
down the artificial barrier which
seems to exist between students and
men active in the business world.
"We want to light a fire in the stu-
dents' mindls before they become
juniom's or seniors, ini order that the
1last two or more years of college
mmay not be wasted in the pursuit of
irelevant subjects," President Little
conttinued. "It will also pmovide a
way to separate the unusual students
fromm the more ordinary type and al-
low those of extraordinary ability to
begin thei- advanced work much
soonem'thtan the average program
would allow.
Deplores Legislative Mlethods-
"Although the state of Michigan has
always takemi good care of her edu
catiomal institutions financially, -and
always will comtinue to do so, it is a

deplorable fact that bills for educa-
tional appropriations are introduced
at the opening of the legislature and
are imnmediately shelved 'until the last
week of the session. rhiis allows
titmuch leeway for time political 'art of
log-rollimng,", Presidenit Little -said.
"Many of the bills are left until those
representatives who arem'nost vitally
inter'ested have left: the session. It
is had business," he continued, "to
allow memi who are niot educational
experts to handle these bills during
the course of their passage by the
legislature. Politics should be left
out of education. Even if the appro-
priations should be a little smaller
because of being passed early in the
sessiomn, it would be beneficial, to the
administrative dlepartments of the
educational institutions to know
earlier just what they -were to get.
- The authorities would thereby be-able
to engage instructors and make out
the budget at a more advantageous
"This nmust be brought about for the
