"We go. on the assumption that
every person is educatable, so we
drive our students. We have toow
much democracy in education; the
requirements should be higher." This
is the opinion of Dean Ralph Dennis
of Northwestern University, as ex-
pressed in an untitled address before

ters' Club, at 2:30 p. m. in the

Dean Dennis stated that the pres-

tude will change. Interpretations of
beautiful things, he said, will have
been substituted for the "cheap, taw-
dry stuff" that declamators now use
to impress judges.. "We must not,
debate to win," he said; "we must'
debate to know."
