Professor Maintains Difficulty l
Due to Different Aims
of Learning.
Declaring that the crisis in mod-
ern education lay in the fact that
it was difficult to coordinate the
different aims, scientific learnng,
educational research, moral educa-
tion and free and liberal play, Prof.
DeWitt H. Parker of the philosophy!
department spoke on the subject,:
"The Crisis in Modern Education,".
at the last of a seras of All-Cam-
pus Forums yesterday afternoon in
Alumni Memorial Hall.
In defining a university, Profes-
sor Parker gave several definitions
that have been generally accepted.
Among the more notable of these'
were; a place for research and ad-I
vancement of learning for thoset
who acquire their ideas and after-s
wards pass them on; an institu-j

faculty will be represented, along

on Transportation
Appears in Alumnus
States That Present Time Marks
Tansition Toward Merging
of Transport Aids.
"As the result of the vision of a
group of men in the country who
have the energy, the scientific
Itraining, the education, the cour-j
age and character which was nee-
essary for the creation and opera-'
tion of the present railroad sys-
tem, we are in a metamorphosis
from the art of railroading to the'
greater art of transportation" stat- I
es Prof. John S. Worley, of the
transportation engineering depart-
ment, in a recent issue of the Mich-
igan Alumnus.
"The old order of transportation
was with us in its pristine charac-
ter only ten years ago, and possi-
bly as late as 1924," says Professor
Worley. "Railroading from its birth
was a self sufficient, self sustained,
exclusive enterprise and business.'
The goods and passengers of the!
country could only be moved over
rails by locomotives. For a railroad'
man to think otherwise would beI
committing treason. However, with!
the coming of the automobile, the
passenger bus, the motor truck, and
the airplane there has been a!
change in the views of these -men,
and ,they are looking forward to aI
greater era of transportation."
In addition to railroading, rail-
road c.-mpanies of today are in-
cluding in their field financial in-

ger bus, motor truck, and airplane

are also available as to the railway
