Student Activities Include Excursions,
Lectures, Research Work In Roman
Culture And Antiquities
"The artistic and the scholarly sides
of the American Academy at Rome
began independently and were not
united until 1912," said Prof. Henry
A. Sanders of the Latin department
in a lecture tracing the development

peanm study for students of art, and in
1894 a small group of students of
architecture gathered in Rome for
mutual study. By 1897 the school had
grown 'uffictently to' admit painters
and sculptors.

quite extensive grounds around them.
Its endowment is well past three mil-
lion dollars.
Outlines Work
Students live together in the large
Academy building. The fellowships
are ample to permit quite a bit of
travel, which is an important part
of the work in Rome. Excursions to
points of interest in Rome and viciity
are taken in the fall, while in the
spring more ambitious trips, often to
Greece or Sicily, eare arranged. Lec-
tures and library research in the
fields of epigraphy, classical typo-
graphy, Roman and Etruscan archae-
eology, and manuscript interpretation
form the bulk of the formal study.
At the end of the lecture slides
of the Academy buildings were shown,
and views of the annual exhibit of

Herbert Hoover tonight was the guest
of President Coolidge at Cedar Island

from this city.

Met With Cheers
Arriving early in the day from

cheering crowd of twonsfolk and
was applauded by thousands of others

PreIdent\Declares That There Should
Be Shift From Subject Matter
To Individual
"Educators must learn,to "fish" for
students, rather than dynamiting
them," said President C. C. Little in
his talk before the Men's Educational
Club last night at the Union. About
x00 superintendents, principals and
teachers heard the address.
"We need a shift in emphasis fron
the subject matter to a study of the
individual pupil. Our duty is to get
the material into the mind of the stu-
dent and to do that properly we must
know the student. Nor is the addi-
tion of new courses to the curriculum
enough, for the courses of instruction
are not an end iA themselves. The
important thing to know is can the
strudent use what we give him as an
cducated person ought to.
Established Mental Tests
"Teaching students is not a "saus-
age making" process, it is something
more subtle than that. It is only
recently that we have learned enough
to establish tests of how the mind of
4 the student is working. When these
psyohologial tests were introduced,
thera were immediately two camps
formed among teachers and profes-
sors; one class said there was nothing
in them, the other that they were a
cure for all our educational ills. But
the largest part of the profession took
the middle ground, that the tests
^hould be used as much as possible
with the present system. And I think
this is the better view.
"We know now that mental abilit'
as such, tends to be inherited. The
mental ability in the parent corre-
sponds to a large degree with the
mental ability in the child. But we
have only recently recognized that
this comes from the mother as well
as the father. ' In fact, by a small ma-
lority, more of the mental ability
omes from the mother than the fa-
her. This is important to consider
n these days that women are coming
into all fields of competit on. It is
highly possible that in our educational
program we will have to use different
tests for women and men in judging
their mental ability, but if we do this
t will have to be very carefully done.
"A" Student Of Two Kinds
"A" student made by Professor
Adams of the University, the results
of which have not yet been made pub-
iii, shows that there are two types of
what we know as "A" students. The
one type can get grades but can't do
anything else. They are crystalized
in the mold. The others, and they
are fewer, have also an attraction and
ability in their personal traits. There
are few of this type with'"A" grades,
