these texts written by Michigan
professors were the best books
available for the teaching of the
courses in which they are used?
If the truth were told it would,
probably be found that for many of
the locally written books, substi-
tutes of a much higher calibre
could be obtained, and, what is al-!
so of significance to the student,
at a greatly reduced price.
An application of the simple I
laws of mass production in a case
of this kind should convince any
academically minded professor of
the stollifying conditions that im-
pede the progress of his teaching
by requiring the use of an inferior
text. A standardized product pro-
duced in great numbers and dis-
tributed to a large market is like-
ly to be of the most superior qual-
ity and is certain to be priced dis-
tinctly lower than the specialized
product written for limited con-
sumption.
Shall we allow the springs of
knowledge, at least not entirely
clear and clean, to be muddled and
rilled by certain selfish individuals
within the academic pale, who
strive for ill considered prestige
and monetary enrichment at the
expense of the highest teaching
ideals and the welfare of the stu-
dent?

The campus these days has al-

that we always connect with vaca-

tend, but if the rest of the boysX
feel as dead in this weather as It
do, it is a wonder that there is any
sign of life whatever.

TEXTBOOK RACKET.

While it is generally recognized
that university professors as a
class are devoted quite conscien-
tiously to the ideals and ethics of'
their profession, there exists a
condition at Michigan and else-
where that throws quite a different
light on the supposedly unselfish
and idealistic status of the pro-j
fessor. We refer to the graft of the
textbook writing pedogogue.
A professor who writes a text in
his particular field and then in-
sists that that book be used in his
department of the university is in
all probability sacrificing the teach-
ing effectiveness of himself and
his colleagues besides actually tak-
ing money from the pockets of his
students.
It would be an injustice to issue
a blanket condemnation of all pro-
fessors who write texts, for Michi-
gan can boast of a number of na-
tionally recognized leaders in sev-
eral educational fields who would
be expected to contribute a book
on the subject of which they have
made a study. Even with these
men in mind a rule could still be
rally written textbooks; for the
revenue from Ann Arbor sales of a
book written by a nationally recog-
nized expert would not amount to
a drop in the bucket compared
with his total royalties.
It is not evident that where a
course is taught by the same man
who wrote the textbook which is
used, the information which the
student gains will necessarily be
narrowed by a singleness of pre-
sentation. The least protection
the universitiy can offer its stu-
dents against the inadequacy of a
mediocre professor is a widely used
and widely recognized textbook.
An example will show to what
extent teachers are feathering their
own nests at the expense of the
student and the reputation of the
