INELIGIBILITIES ARE FEW
Members and promising freshmen
of the athletic teams at the University
of Michigan established fine scholas-1
tic records during the second semes-
ter of the 1927-28 academic year, it
has been revealed in a survey made
by Stanford Phelps, director of pub-
licity for the athletic association.
Not a single outstanding football
player was declared ineligible after
the June examinations, while there
are one or two likely candidates for
the 1928 team who plan to be eligible
after the end of the present Summer
Statistics reveal that the Maize and
Blue athletes earned a total of 311
hours of "A" (grades, 1163 hours of
"B," 1,709 hours of "C," and 380 hours
of "D." Only 105 hours of "E" grad-
es were reported during the semes-
The members of the track team
earned 81 acaademic' hours of grade
"A" to lead the other groups, while
second place in number of hours off
"A" wias earned by the football men
with 70 hours. An interesting.fact
of the compilation is that no hoaurs of
"E" were reported for the members
of the basketball, swimming, tennis,
and fencing teams. Only seven hours
of "D" were earned by the tennis

"Education is a means of expanding
one's possibilities now and for the
future. The child is thus the central
element in any system of education.
In pre-school education we are con-
cerned with small children whose
needs are for social contacts with those
of their own age, for routine habits
accepted happily, and for motor and
physical control," said Mrs. Katherine
Greene of the psychology department
in discussing pre-primary school edu-
The Merrill-Palmer school supplies
all three of these needs. Here chil-
dren from all sorts of homes come at
about nine o'clock in the morning.
They are inspected by a trained nurse
so that any who show signs of infec-
tion may be sent home at once. Those
passing the daily physical examina-
tion go into one of the two nursery
school rooms where they spend the
first hour in "work." Each child is
allowed to choose his occupation and
is encouraged to carry it out as in-
telligently as possible. A definite
effort is made to have each child
carry some bit of work to completion
before he goes on to the next thing.
After about an hour of individual
work, an opportunity for social con-
tact is given when the children gather
in a circle, give the "news" of the
day, listen to a story, play a game,
or sing a song for about fifteen min-
utes. In all activities the Nursery
School .encourages the child to use
initiative in connection with the
group. Adults are present in the
group only for supervision and en-
The Nursery School aims not only
to give the child social contacts with
children of his own age, but gives
training in motor and physical con-
trol and social rivalry. After the
songs are sung the mid-morning lunch
is served consisting of a k small por-

tion of fruit and a drink of water.
Next the children go out doors to-play
until half past eleven. Du;4ng their
perilod of out-door play they are again
left to choose their occupations.
An opportu(nity to teach routine
habits is presented when the children
come in from the playground. At the
end of the music lesson, which is not
compulsory, comes a brief period of
relaxation, after which some of the'
childrenset the tables for luncheon.
When all is ready the others comeI
down and take their places. All of
the serving at meals and changing
of plates is done by these children
themselves. After luncheon comes
the nap of about two hours. Upon wak-
ing the children have a mid-afternoon
lunch consisting usually of a small
glass of milk. They then put on their
wraps and go out of doors to play
until called for by their parents.
"This is an age of experimentation,"
said Mrs. Greene. "In spite of the
dozens of books published every year
concernin-g the solution of human
problems, there is much to be learned
about individuals. Those who advo-
cate pre-school training for children
know there is yet no established
method of correct child training. Be-
cause there is much to be learned inr
the educational as well as other fields,
experimental work in educational
methods is one of the most fascinat-
