liam W. Cook, a former student,
anno inced that he would give the
law school a new building. Be-
tween 1929 and 1933 three new
buildings were completed - the
present Law Quadrangle ---- the
John P. Cook Building, the Wil-
liam WV' Cook Legal Research Li-
brary and Hutchins Hall. These
took the place of Haven Hall.
Still changing and growing, the
Law School under Dean Henry AlE.
Bates, and und~er present Dean E.
Blythe Stason has continued to
develop in accord with the original
reqluiremient that it "shall give in-
struction . . . to the end that its
students may become prudent
counsellors, wise legislators, and
useful leaders."

It was in 1879, during the ad-
ministration of President Angell,
that a Department of the Science
and the Arxt of'reaching was first
establih.c.
Preside nt Angell was often
aske-d to certify stdes for po-
sitions as school a din in istrators
and teachers.

Their general theory has not as
yet been)- broadly disputed by busi-
ness leaders and economists out-
side the government. But the rem-
edies they suggest have already
met violent opposition both in
Congress and among business men.
THEY HAVE recommended im-

will head off any further inflation,
They have ;also proposed long term

'The b~acteria which will eve'n-
tually threaten our prosperity,
they say, are the various mnalad-
justmients now developing in our
economy.
The deadliest, as they see it, is
the , steadily diminishing buying
power of individual consumers.
The crisis will come, in the opin-
ion of members of the council,
when government expenditures
drop drastically-when and if for-
eign aid and the cold war end.

The need for some more direct,

It, was provided, after a brief
struggle with the Regents, through
"familiar courses" dealing with
techniques and philosophy of
teaching and offered in the liter-
ary college.
BUT DURING the next 40 years
it became clear that more was
needed. In 1919 a special appropri-
ation by the State Legislature au-
thorized expenditure of $300,000
for a demonstration school in
which teaching could be learned
through Ipractice.
This appropriation came asI
the culmination of an 11-y'ear
fight, but the money was not al-
latted to actual building until
192~1,
In that year also, the depart-
went of education became the
School of Education--independent
of the literary college. One of the
first professors in the new school,
J. B. Edmonson, is the present
dean.
With the completion of thei
University High School and in
1,,29 the University Elementary
School, the present facilities of
the education school were com-
pleted, but the staff and enroll-s
ment have continued to expand
as the school grewv to its present
position of importance.I

The first course in business aid-
ministration at the University
grew naturally out of the eco-
nomics department. Initiated in
1890, these studies at first led to a
bachelor of arts degree with a cer-
tificate in business adrniristra-
tion.
Later, as industrial soc'iety
grew and management detvel-

occupation, the need for special -
ized training became a'pparent.
The demand for business educa-
tion came primarily from busi-
nessmen who readily saw its value.
