THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE.
Like his other messages, Presi-
dent Ruthven's recent remarks
anent the University college leave
us in two minds as to what he in-
tends. He opens the dissertation
with a caustic attack on the pro-
ject's supporters, branding their
"pitiless enthusiasm" as "imbued
with an excess of misionary zeal,"
and depreciating their judgment
as "surrendered to the fascination
of a name," and hypnotized by the
prospect of a "panacea for the
conglomeration of chronic ills"
that beset our eduactional system.
On the other hand, with the diplo
macy of which he is master, he set
forth his purpose of eventually ac-
complishing much the same end
by conservative "controlled experi-
We admit the disadvantages of
sudden reform, but at the same
time we are convinced that this
University, as now constituted, hasJ
strayed so far from its ideal pathI
that something more drastic than
"controlled experimentation," as
President Ruthven uses the term,
is needed to bring it back. We are
impatient of endless piddling
around to find a cure for some-
thing monstrous, immediate, and
distressing. Our suggestion is that
President Ruthven preserve intact
his method of "controlled experi-
mentation," but make the Univer-
sity college the first controlled ex-
President Ruthven recognizes
that two great evils are inherent
in Michigan's present educational
system: (1) that too many stu-
dents in the literary college spend
altogether too much time acquir-
ing too little depth of learning, and
(2) that our professional colleges
are so much influenced by trade
school ideals of technical perfec-
tion that their graduates are as-
tonishingly deficient even in zuch
elementary culture as knowledge
and appreciation of their own lan-
guage. The first of these two evils
attains the proportions of a crime,
or at least opens the University to
a charge of using the A.B. degree
to misrepresent an educated man.
The second evil is more in the na-
ture of a pity, but such a pity that
)me contact with higher educa-
on' is a va aie thing, it is our
ontention that fully one half of
he literary students waste two
recious years that might infinitely
etter be employed in discovering
he hard facts of the world. For
hese students, who attend collegef
costly because everybody is doing
t, the literary college is a soften-
ng influence-little more, indeedc
han a lesson in "just getting by." j
'o our way of thinking a division
f the literary college into two un'
ts could not "crush its first two
ormative years back into the pre-
ocious maturity of the high
chool," for they are already so
rushed back by the low scholastic
tandards; and as for "dragging
ts last two years, even more pre-
ious in their development, into
he professional atmosphere of the.
raduate school," nothing could
provide a more welcome. stimula-
ion to those literary students
whose desire for an education is
honest and whose purpose is sin-
It will be answered, "Then raise
the standards of the literary col-
lege," but this is precisely what
cannot be done at Michigan for the
canny taxpayers will howl most
pitifully if their sons and daugh-
ters are returned in any numbers
as unfit to receive the boon of
higher education. Somehow these
unfit must be bought off with a
two-year diploma which will suffi-
ciently attest their more-than-
high-school aspirations, at the
some time lessening their drag on
those fit to explore the higher
realms of education. Coincident-
ally the compressed background of
culture which would best serve the
two-year literary graduate would
almost exactly suit the professional
novitaite as the proper foundation
for his technical training. We sub-
mit that a division of the literary
course into two-year units-which
is the essence of the University
college-is as neat a solution of
the problem as can be found.
The chief fault with the Univer-
sity college project seems to be that
it is in advance of its times. Dis-
satisfaction is even now wide-
spread with the inability of liter-
ary colleges as now constituted to
provide adequately for all who
want the type of education they
offer. Already the movement to
ward junior colleges - which are
scale models of the University col-
lege - has gained such headwa
that the University is looking for-
ward to matriculating an alway
increasing number of third-yer
students. To us it is a pity that
hesitating, experimenting, recon
sidering Michigan must follow in
stead of lead this trend, especiall
since we have the University col
lege almost fully worked out in de
tail, and needing only vigorou
leadership to resolve the financia
obstacle and settle the question o
its relation to the College of En
gineering and Architecture.
MEDICINAL-BUT NOT TOO
When discussions of remedia
measures are heard in academi
circles, the trend is inevitably to
ward prophylactics, rather tha
surgery. This is to the effect tha
a considerable amount of quack
ery and sooth-saying persists ram
pant in otherwise respectably san
minds. It is conservative to sa
that pedagogic ills, particularly th
two most acute ailments-the cur
ricula and the admissions prob
lems-need more than the micro
