Says Attention Given
To What Is Thought
And Not Why
Dean Edmunson And Guest' Speak-
ers Given Informal Reception
Before Banquet
Vigorously decrying the growth
of a professionally-minded de-
partmental aristocracy in the lib-
eral colleges, President Clarence
Cook Little, in his address at the
annual banquet of the Michigan
Schoolmasters' club last night, de-
marcated the disadvantages accru-
ing to the student under a system
of instruction in which greater at-
tention is paid to what is taught,
rather than to why and how a
subject is taught.
Prefacing his discussion with a
tribute to the school teachers of
the state as a group possessing "a
general standing and ideals high-
er than that of any body of pub-
lie servants in Michigan," President
Little then pointed out that the
problem was to care for the heavy
influx of badly oriented students--
those who are misfits, not socially,
but mentally and emotionally. Fur-
ther outlining the problem, he con-
tinued: "Exceptional high school
students, even though trained
along vocational lines, which hap-
pen not to conform to the chaste
commandments of our unit system
of admission, should be given a
chance, 'with the recommendation
of the secondary school, in the
Liberal Arts College Scored
"The liberal arts colleges of the
country are becoming more profes-
sionally minded than the law or
medical schools. Departnental
aristocracies have allowed the good
teacher who doesn't write books to
go without promotion for that rea-
son. Further, professors do not
want to teach underclassmen, but
prefer to instruct the graduate stu-
dent whom they know to be a
prospective professor. As a result,
the normal student is forced to
dive deeply into the subject with
the professor, even though his
lungs ache, his earn hum, and bib
eyes are pained,w hen he would
rather spend his time swimming
around near the surface to enjoy
other beauties, and only occasion-
ally diving to a deeper level."
As a corrective, Dr. Little pro-
poses that high school teachers
better prepare themselves in the
biological sciences - psychology,
physiology, and human biology-
in order that they may deal with
the student, not as a variable, but
as an objective for the aim of edu-
Preceeding the banquet an infor-
mal reception was given for Dean J.
B. Edmunson, of the School of Edu-
cation, out-of-state speakers and
other guests of the group of teach-
ers assembled in Ann Arbor for a'
three day program.
Special Conferences Planned
Special conferences on subjects
included in the curricula of Michi-
gan high schools will fill most of
the day's program, while several
luncheons will be held this noon
Sby the various groups. The annual

business meeting of the Schoolmas-
ters' club will be held at 1:45 o'clock
this afternoon in Room D of the

Campus tours have been arrang-
ed this morning and this afternoon

ing League, while a conference for
