By FREDDI LOEWENBERG
Yale University President A.
Whitney Griswold, writing in the
March 27 Saturday Review of Lit-
erature; has charged that poor ele-
mentary and secondary school ed-
ucation is undermining the stan-
dards of the nation's colleges.
Telling of widespread illiteracy
To e Read
Prof. Donald Pearce of the Eng-
lish Department will read selec-
tions from the poetry of William'
Butler Yeats at 4:10 p.m. today in
Aud. A, Angell Hall.
Yeats is usually considered one
of the best of modern poets, and
his works have been studied by
Prof. Pearce both here and in
Yeats' native Ireland.
Among Prof. Pearce's publish-
ed works about Yeats P.re "Yeats
as an Irish Senator" and "Yeats
Last Plays: An Interpretation."
This is the second in a series of
reading-lectures by members of
the English department which will
continue with Prof. G. B. Harri-
son: "Songs and Monologues" on
April 29 and Prof. Arthur Carr:
"A Reading of Light Verse" on
SL Open Houses
Open houses for candidates run-
ning in the all-campus elections
on Tuesday and Wednesday will be
held today at the following houses:
5 p.m., Pi Beta Phi (Student
Legislature candidates only); 6
p.m., Alpha Sigma Phi; 6:30 p.m.,
Delta Chi and Delta Upsilon.
JOIN THE RED CROSS
among college graduates and their
want of capacity to acquire and
apply intelligence, Pres. Griswold
blamed the decline in the liberal
arts as a force in education.
* * *
"THE MAIN trouble undoubted-
ly lies with our primary and sec-
ondary education and I am not
sure how much of it could still be
remedied by appropriate reforms
in our undergraduate curriculum,"
the educator commented.
On campus, Assistant Dean
James H. Robertson of tpe lit-
erary college agreed with the
charges advocating a "long
searching look into the opera-
tion of secondary schools."
The Dean pointed out that
"training in vocational skills is
part of the intellectual function,"
but there is a problem of "where
intellectual learning ends and
where social adjustment to life
However, Iean Robertson point-
ed out that there is no factual evi-
dence to support Griswold's con-
clusions that the quality of college
students is significantly different
than it was 10 years ago.
* * *
ACCORDING to Griswold, "All
the best students are not going to
college, with untold talent being
wasted. This is the part of the
price society pays for its imprac-
tical evaluation of the liberal arts,"
Noting the shortage of teach-
ers and school facilities, Gris-
wold said that an improvement
and expansion of the liberal
arts training program for sec-
ondary school teachers would
help clear up the situation.
Discussing the problem of size,
Dean Robertson explained that the
methods of teaching have to be
devised just to keep abreast of in-
creasing enrollments. "It isn't so
much unwillingness as large size,"
he pointed out.
"The liberal arts colleges have
been a little smug and compla-
cent," he continued. Convincing
the student of the value of liberal
arts so he will carry this outlook
on after college, will save edu-
cation in the long run, the dean
