WILL SPEAK HERE
Selects Topic, What Is Wrong
With Educational System'
HOLDS RADICAL OPINION
Reformer Launched Criticism on
Present Futile Treatment
of Crime Problem.
Presenting his conception of
"What is wrong with our eucation-
al system," Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes,1
professor of historical sociology at
Smith coilege, will lecture at 8
o'clock tomorrow evening, at Lane
hall auditorium, under the auspices
of the Round+Table club.
Professor Barnes has expressed
his opinion on education in numer-?
ous magazine articles in the last
"ew years, and has caused consider-
able stir in academic circles by his
frankness and audacity in advocat-
ing popularization of courses of!
study. In Current History last year
he pronounced the belief that there1
should be types of educational in-:
stitutions-one for serious students
and one for what he calls the
"average American student type."
According to his article, he is not
altogether out of sympathy wit the
latter, stating that the "capacity'
to adjust a bow-tie to a bat-wing
collar will prove infinitely more
vital to the average male student:
than higher differential, equations
or the theory of valency."
Books Are Well Known.
Professor Barnes first gained ex-
tensive notice as a result of ,his
efforts to modernize and humanize
history. His "History and the
Social Studies" has been compared
byjeading historians to the epoch-
making work of Voltaire and
Buckle. Of his "History and Social
Intelligence" Paul Rodin wrote: "He
is a soldier in the battle for libera-
'tion from the die-hards. He belongs
to the lineage of DeFoe."
The publication of "Genesis of
the World War" brought Dr. Barnes
into international prominence. He
has lectured widely on this subject
before distinguished groups of
scholars, publicists, and statesmen
of European cuntries and his lec-
tures before 'the: Universities of
Berlin and Munich constituted per-
haps the most striking occasions in'
the history of these great centers
Believes Science Solution.
As a reformer in the field of
ciiminology, Professor Barnes'
book "Repression of Crime" has
l a u n c h e d trenchant criticism
against the savagery of our out-
grown and futile prison system and
has presented a plea for a scientific
treatment of the crime problem.
Professor Barnes will be- intro-_
duced to his audience tomorrow
evening by Prof. Lowell' J. Carr of
the sociolog department. There
will be an admission charge of'fifty
