Study System
Told In Speech
Intellectual Approach Held
Better Than Emotional
In Attacking Problems
The need for an educational system
which would teach students an intel-
lectual approach to problems ratherl
than an emotional apprach was
stressed by Prof. John F. Shepard
at the weekly round table discussion
for freshmen at Lane Hall Sunday
afternoon.
Dr. Shepard suggested the study of
a foreign language with some purpose
in mind and not simply as a required
course. And a knowledge of physical
and laboratory sciences as well as an
understanding of the economic de-
velopment of society are an important
part in anyone's education, he said.
The habit of critical, uninhibited
thinking is an important one to es-
tablish in addition to forming habits
in relation to adjustment by the indi-
vidual to his environment. Finally to
organize one's thoughts and beliefs
into an intelligent philos'ophy which
can be carried out in life should be
the purpose of an education Dr. Shep-
ard said.
He deplored the present mental
system which makes the woman de-
pendenit on the male, terming it un-
civilized. Dr. Shepard declared that
a healthy family life should not be
dependent on the financial resources
of one member.

gram said. "Object is to punish all

bring pressure on relief workers."
Meanwhile, Chairman James A.
Farley of the Democratic National
Committee prepared a radio address
predictinga Democratic victory, and
asserting that it "must be so decisive
as to leave no doubt in anybody's
mind that the country's faith in
Franklin D. Roosevelt is as great as
ever." He added :
"President Roosevelt will be en-
dorsed again. The United States Sen-
ate and the House of Representatives
will be overwhelmingly Democratic,
as they are now. We will see a few
new faces in the halls of Congress,
but the political complexion will not
be materially different. The govern-
mental policies which stayed the
Hoover panic and started commerce
and industry on the upgrade will be
braced and perfected and the work
of restoration will go right on. It may
be hampered and delayed occasiorially
by the expedients of the small anti-
Administration groups but the good
work will go on just the same."

Michigan Leads In Summer
School Work, Says Hopi

"The Universiy of Michigan has
established a significant leadership in
summer school work and is develop-
ing a summer program comparable
to any offered in other institutions
throughout the country," Dr. Louis
A. Hopkins, director of the summer
session declared yesterday.
The University summer school has
grown rapidly, showing a 13 per cent
increase in 1938 over the enrollment
of the previous year. In the past five
years it has grown from an attend-
ance of 2962 in 1933 to 5771 in 1'938,
an enrollment more than half as
large as the regular winter session.
"This growth," according to Dr.
Hopkins, "is reflected in summer
schools throughout the country and
the concensus of opinion among sum-)
mer school directors is that summer
attendance will increase again next
year.
At a meeting of summer session
directors two weeks ago in Minne-
apolis, it was determined that only
two schools of the rank of Michigan
showed a decrease in attendance at
summer school. The average increase
throughout the country was six per
cent as compared with the 13 per
cent increase at Michigan. Signifi-
cant increases were also made, ac-
cording to Dr. Hopkins, at New York
University, the University of Missouri,
Chicago, Harvard, Kentucky, Minne-
sota, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, and
Washington.
"These increases," said Dr. Hop-
kins, "are due primarily to the higher
standards required now of teachers,
particularly the masters degree."
Dr. Hopkins freely predicted that
the enrollment next year will pass
the 6000 mark. The Board of Regents
have made their appropriation and;
already plans for courses and accom-
modations for this increase are being
made.
"The indications are that next sum-
mer will be rich in special programs,"
Dr. Hopkins said. "Plans are being
laid for new programs and for carry-
ing forward most of the old pro-
jects."
The most significant of the new
programs in the opinion of Dr. Hop-

Education And Recreation
Offered By Community
Would Help Adjustment
The problem of the college-age
youth who stays at home, finding no
employment because of his age, de-
mands that educational and recrea-
tional facilities be offered by the com-
munity to help integrate him into
adult society, said Prof. Howard Y.
McClusky in a speech at the Inter-
national Center Sunday.
In Dowagiac and Branch County,
Mich. non-profit, non-assessing coun-
cils have been set up composed of
volunteers representing all organiza-
tions in the community such as the
churches, schools, 4-H clubs and
laborunits, he said. These councils
through the cooperation of local
groups have instituted adult educa-
tion programs and popular youth
recreation centers.
Less pressing problems of the com-
munity must be dealt with first to
gain the confidence of the common
people, then the most acute problem,
economical, can be met, explained Dr.
McClusky.
The 12 per cent of college-age peo-
ple who attend institutions of higher
learning must consider the debt they
owe society for offering educational
facilities so reasonably, rather than
feel that society owes them a living,
he said. College and university pro-
fessors and graduates should be the
cooperative leaders and strengthening
girders of this social movement, con-
cluded Dr. McClusky.

Valley Farms, the experimental

living and cooperative farming, on
Saturday, Nov. 19, as well as visits to

the Central Volunteer Bureau of the
Council of Social Agencies in De-
troit, will speak on "Case Work and
Its Problems" at 10 p.m. today at the
