DuPont Calls for Combination
Of Liberal Arts, Technology

\' '/

Traditional patterns of a liberal
arts education must be combined
with the advantages of modern
technology, Henry du Pont, vice-
president of the DuPont Company
said recently.
Du Pont, addressing the twenty-
fourth annual conference of Aca-
demic Deans of the Southern
States, in Miami, pointed out that
future leaders of America must
combine technology, "the force
that transforms men into giants"
With cultural development to.un-
derstand the modern civilization
in which we live.
"The growth of the American
university system has . paralleled
our industrial growth," du Pont
said. He pointed to the endow-
ments given by men in industry to
improve cultural opportunities as
proof of the compatibility of edu-
cation and industry.
Du Pont emphasized the im-
portance of a broad liberal edu-
cation to a technical student. .He
said, "The technical studeht must
recognize and understand the soc-
ial forces, otherwise his capacity
for leadership will be severely
"However, faihire to understand
the nature of technology is the
basis of many of our present na-
tional and international tensions,"
he said in explaining the need for
an, analysis of the impact and.
meaning of technology in liberal
arts courses.

Du Pont emphasized the de-
pendence of industry and educa-
tion on each other in relation to
the student. "Then'role of leader-
ship, in tomorrow's world will be
assumed neither by those who
know a great deal about a very
little or a very little about a great
deal. It will be discharged only by
those whose i thinking is broad
and uninhibited."
Du Pont continued, "each of
these facets has been able to do
something no other system has
ever done in world history, it has
brought its product, whether it be
a diploma or a deep freeze, with-
in the reach of practically every
The impact of the expansion of
technology has brought about 'two
great revolutions in the educa-
tional field, du Pont said. "The
first is the transformttion of the
American college from a liberal
arts sanctuary to one in which
technical training in engineering
and the physical sciences have
come to have an important place."
"Secondly is the great mass
educational program in progress,
In 1900 the ratio was one boy in
30 who went to college, now it is
one out of every three."
Du Pont pointed to the financial
problems of the universities which
are magnified by the greatly in-
creased enrollments and rising
costs. He cited the contributions of
industry to universities as a major
source of relief for these financial
Application of industrial prac-
tices to the educational field was'
also suggested by du Pont.

How much time do we spend on
our school work?
A study recently completed by
the Department of Student Life
at Douglass College came up with
these results: "The average under-
graduate devotes a 40-hour week
to academic pursuits, including 16
hours, 40 minutes in attending
classes and 26 hours, 22 minutes
in class preparation."

Monkeys in the University
of Wisconsin's primate laboratory
prefer electric trains to food.
Tests have- shown that about
the only thing that a monkey pre-
fers to the toy trains is another
monkey. The usual laboratory in
Madison consists of 90 rhesus
monkeys who have been cared for
from birth by psychology students.
The Psychology Club there re-,
ports that the monkeys have been
found to start learning at the age
of five days. The rhesus monkeys
are more mature than human chil-
dren, though later the humans
overtake the primates.

An undisclosed number of stu-
dents are under suspension at the
University of West Virginia after
President Irving Stewart was
doused with' a bucket of water
during apanty raid.
The students reportedly could
not be stopped despite police ef-
forts. Stewart was doused while
trying to restore order at the raid
on a sorority house.
The most remarkable part about
the story is that the water was
not thrown from the mob of raid-
ers but from a' window of the sor-
ority house.

Another round in, the battle
over loyalty oaths has been fought
between the University of Wash-
ington Daily and the Chewelah
Independent; the final round both
papers hope.
"let it be understood we do not
deny anyone the right to take
anything they elect into a court of
law," writes the Independent con-
cerning its attacks on two Wash-
ington professors disputing a new
state loyalty oath. "What we
questioned was the propriety of
the two professors' contesting this
particular law ... Love of Coun-
try . , . transcends minor techni-
"Thenstatement hardly needs
comment," replies the U. of W.
Daily. "To admitcthe right to
take 'anything' to court, but then
make exceptions when a specific
case arises, is absurd."

Language Lab
Adds 30 Units
Installation of thirty new booths
in the Mason Hall Language Lab-
oratory was completed Friday.
The new units include fifteen
listening booths and fifteen units
complete with turntables. The
listening booths are connected
with a tape recorder in the con-
trol room, enabling the student
to hear the recording. However,
he will be unable to repeat the
woi'd back over a microphone as
in the turntable units,
With addition of the units, the
seating capacity of the lab has
been increased to one hundred
booths. In order to relieve con-
gestion caused by the additional
units, seating has been rearranged.

Center To Conduct
Education Survey
Survey Research Center's survey
of undergraduate education at the
University is to be conducted on
seniors of the literature, science
and arts and business administra-
tion schools.
Letters have been mailed to 450
seniors, selected at random, who
are asked to come to Angell Hall
or Business Administration Build-
ing to fill out questionnaires.
The questions are directed at
phases of the educations the sen-
iors feel they have received, and
the questions are to be awarded
on the basis of the students' at-
The Center hopes that each per-
son who received a letter will go
to the office, in order to insure
accurate results in the survey.
