Seldom publicized is the work of
the Bureau of Co-operation with
Educational Institutions,theadedby
SProf. G. E. Carrothers of the educa-
tion school. It is this department
which makes it possible for stud-
ents from 600 accredited high
schools in Michigan to enter the
University without having to sur-
mount the barrier of an entrance
The bureau has until this year
existed as the Division of High
School Inspection. By action of the
University council last February, its
work was extended to include co-
operative activity with junior and
senior colleges in the state, in or-
der to keep courses of study ap-
proximately parallel, and thus re-
lieve the-difficulty usually found in

Of primary importance, however,
is the routine work that occupied
all the time of the bureau before
its activities were extended. Ap-
proximately 600 of the 725 high
schools in Michigan have been ac-
credited-several of them, notably
Ann Arbor high, for more than half
a century.
Although most of these are larg-
er schools, there arq in the list 51
with only thiee teabhers, and 101
more having only four on the fac-
ulty. With figures of this sort, the
uninitiated may question the value
of the accrediting process.
Nevertheless, the decision is so
important that the North Central
Association of Colleges and Second-I
ary Schools, an organization com-
prising 2,480 high schools in a wide
region, requires that a Michigan
school must be accredited by the
Uniiversi ty before it can be passed
by the associatioo. Michigan has
entered 211 of its schools iii the as-
sociation, or nine per cent or the

1o preparation of teachers, teaching

before a school is held eligible to

First, all teachers of academic
:subjects must have a college degree.
Although at present this railing is

One Case Discovered in Senior
Class; 21 Per Cent Found
at Pennsylvania.
Michigan senior mnecrcal students
are healthier than the medical stu-
dents of Pennsylvania, at least as
far as tuberculosis is concerned, ac-
cording to recent investigations. X-
ray examinations of the medical
students in Pennsylvania authori-
tatively reported as showing defi-
nite evidence of tuberculosis infil-
tratio'in 21 per cent of the seniors.
This is an unusually high percen-
age. A similar study of MichiganI
senior medical students has just
been completed with the finding of
only one very early case. This is
only 0.8 per cent and checks with
the health service's other exper- 1
iences with the disease.

year showed a great increase over;

Addressing more than 150 persons;
in the west gallery of Alumni Me-
morial hall, Paul J. Sachs, profcs-
sor of fine arts at Harvard and as-
,, iate director of the F mu-
Seum, thoroughly covered the a t of

"No period,' id ' ,r>0 IIS
-was ever more cncos( t r
than was this one. Yet i v
pended more u po the isoi jiasi
for' theimisirto ha nth(-
age preceding them."
Professor Sachs correlated the
art movements of that century with.
the political developments. "The
neo-classic movemen, he said,
"approximated the revolution of
1789, the romantic movement was,
coincident with the revolt of 1830,
the period of realism began with
the revolution of 1848, ihe time of
impressionism came with the agi-
tation in 1870 and the cubist move-
ment preceded the cataclysm of the
World War."
Illustrating his lecture fully with
many slides, Professor Sachs refer-
red to every important painter and
drawer of the nineteenth century,
dwelling at great length upon the
leaders of each movement.
"The greatest masters of this
century," he said, "copied with rev-
erent care the work of their pred-
ecessors before tlley felt able to do
creative work themselves. Through-
)ut this restless century, however,
they were always searching for a
new ideal in art. Influenced pro-
foundly by the political upheavals
of the times this endless search
found expression in the large num-
ber of artistic movements."
Professor Sachs is a well-known
authority upon this subject, having
done a great deal of research in it.

"So far as this study is indica-

ing conclusions seems to be estab-
lished; the junior college students
have higher scholastic records be-

other groups; they maintain this
superiority during their period at
the University; they have fewer
cases of disciplinary action; they
graduate more individuals; they
have a smaller number leaving with
doubtful scholarship records; and
more members of the group receive
honors at graduation."
