The modern college or university'
must assume, to some degree, the
responsibility for the success of its
students in later life and must meet
th1s responsibility by doing more than
just offering a series of academic
subjects, to be "taken or left" as the
student choses, Dr. T. Luther Pur-
dom, director of the University Bu-
reau of Appointments and Occupa-
tional Information, said yesterday.
Every school, in his opinion, shuld
have a number of men to study the
major, njon-scholastic problems of
its students, for "one who is serious-
ly bothered with fear, or jealousy, or
some other personal problem, is quite
;apt to be a failure in later life, no
matter how much he has learned
from the scholing.
"Unfortunately few educational in-
stitutions to date have recognized the
contribution such studies make to-
ward the success of their students,
st i reluctanto lendg whole-hearte
support to any such work.
"As a matter of fact, a great pro-
portion of the number of insane per-
sons within this country were at one
time normal men and women except
for some personal problems. These
problems naturally tended to grow
and grow in seriousness until they
finally became overwhelming and
caused insanity.
"With proper diagnosis and treat-
ment of these problems, any such
insanity cases can be reduced to a
minimum, benefiting the state both
socially and financially," Dr. urdom
The University of Michigan, one of
the few schools that gives any real
attention to the study of the ."ab-
normal characteristics of the normal
student,", has found that a large per
cent of all the students tested have
had some sort of peculiarity worthy
of attention, according to Dr. Purdom,
who directs the study as a part of the
work of the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information.

mechanical engineering and former
chief engineer of the Continental Mo-
to1' Co., predicted yesterday.
Door to door delivery, he said, is
at least as rapid as the correspond-
'ing train service and the prevailing
rates are lower and will continue to
drop as existing trucks are replaced
with Diesel powered equipment.
Professor Vincent characterized
the .growing importance of Diesel
engines as a significant trend in
transportation progress, forseeing

In England and on the continent,
Professor Vincent continued, where
the engine has been more nearly per-
fected, surveys covering a number of
years of actual operation have shown
that, while maintaince costs aver-
age about 15 per cent higher, total
upkeep is appreciably lower.
These figures also show that there
have been about 50 per cent less
complete failures with Diesel than
with gasoline engines in similar use.
The common belief that Diesel
engines can run on anything is pret-
ty well justified, according to~ Pro-
fessor Vincent, since recent experi-
ments have shown that they work
fairly well on palm -oil which is

Newspaper stories should be thor-
oughly analyzed by the readers before
definite opinions are formed, Prof.
John L. Brumm, chairman of the
journalism department, advised in an
interview yesterday. .
Professor Brumm attested the fact
that there are so many widely di-
vergent opinions among men of in-
telligence and good will is due in
many cases to the way words are
used in newspapers.
"Perhaps the chief of the many
sources of our betrayal is the nouns,
adjectives and verbs used in the
public prints to tell us what is going
on in the world beyond our own im-
mediate observations," he pointed
uIf the words are used consciously
to deceive, as is partisan distortions,
readers become the victims of un-'
ethical practice, he said. If they are
used stupidly, in consequence of the
emotional bias of the writer, as is
often the case, subscribers are with-
out adequate defenses against them.
"Measurably as these stupidly used
words ft inwith --oupreconceptions,
our wishes and desires, the betrayal
becomes complete. But mostly the
by our predilections. No word in
a thinking transaction is free of the
peculiar connotations that grow out
of individual experiences," Professor
Brumm stated.
Argument is never free from emo-
tional betrayal, Professor Brumm

said, except as it may relate to mat-
ters for which one feels no personal
concern. The sad aspect about many
disagreements is that many persons
make their little worlds of ideas the
only world, he said. Readers are also
easily duped by symbols and labels,
Professor Brumm added.
"Some one, for instance, denounces
an act as 'un-American' or 'illegal'
or 'unconstitutional' and we quiver
with indignation simply because we
have been emotionally conditioned
to quiver at these appelitions.
"Intelligent persons should resent
being compelled to misconceive mat-
ters of public concern. We should
ask ourselves everytime what facts
'we base the opnion on and where
a"We should always remember that
our individual world of ideas can take
account of only a fraction of the
facts involved in any real contro-
versy," Professor Brumm concluded.
