THE MICHIGAN DAILY FRIDAY, JULY 6, 19~i5
"It would be difficult to overesti-
mate the contribution of our early
secondary schools to American life.
While they did not guarantee an ed-
ucation for all young people-an ideal
not yet achieved-they did provide
opportunities such as Europeans had
This is the opinion of Prof. Fred
S. Dunham, of the University Latin
department, as expressed yesterday
in a speech, "Milestones in the His-
tory of American Education."
Gave Good Preparation
"Our secondary schools made pos-
sible a preparation for higher educa-
tion that gave us a leadership in lit-
erature, science, law, statesmanship
and education," he asserted. "It is
no accident that they shared with the
college in giving an intellectual tone
to the nation."
Stating that the "early nineteenth
century was an era when the com-
mon man was deeply concerned with
his mission to advance civilization,"

On Auto Equipment
WASHINGTON, July 5-(IP)-Re-
strictions on the production and dis-
tribution of automobile maintenance
equipment have been removed by the
War Production Board, and manu-
facturers will be given priorities as-

the principle of the American ladder,
or unitary classless system."
"This was opposed to the European
dual system of education which pro-
vided one kind of instruction for the
aristocracy and another for the com-
mon people," he declared.
"During the latter half of the nine-
teenth century, the doors of oppor-
tunity stood open for the ambitious
and the lucky," Prof. Dunham stat-
ed. "It was the age which produced
the Goulds, the Astors, and John D.
Rockefeller. A philosophy of prag-
matism developed to justify the new
"It is fortunate, he said, "that
schools and colleges were slow to re-'
spond. Traditional values were still
cherished and the schools continued
to teach the great English classics."
The age in which we are living, is
one of violent social upheavals and
conflicting philosophies, Prof. Dun-
"Thanks to our historic belief that
in a classless society, no worthy indi-
vidual should be deprived of an op-
portunity to gain a well-rounded
education, the high school has emer-
ged as a cosmopolitan institution," he
