system cannot be escaped.
"From the standpoint of American
life as a whole," said Doctor Burton,
"the problem involved here is funda-
mental. Superficiality is an American
vice. Historically speaking, we have
been a race of pioneers. We have done
the best we could, but it takes time to
develop a substantial civilization.
Temperamentally, we are not well
equipped for patient, thorough-going
work. Our,aim has been to turn off a
task quickly. The war has produced
a serious restlessness among our peo-
ple and our youth, and if it had been
difficult before, it will be almost Im-
possible to settle down to thorough-
Speaks of Rhodes Scholars
Speaking of American Rhodes schol-
ars, President Burton said that the
members of the faculty of Oxford uni-
versity had stated in their reports that
the Rhodes scholars do not settle down
to real thorough work, and that they
seem to have been taught nothing pre-
cisely. Moreover, they were reported
to have lacked accuracy and hard
drive. 'Here is an excellent example
of the statement that the 'American
educational system represents and re-
flects American civilization," declared
3n speaking of .the effects of the war
on American scholars, President Bur-
ton said: "New facts are at .hand
which offer more hope for satisfactory
results. The war has given multi-
tudes of Americans a new sense of
thoroughness. Even before the war
there was a growing intellectual earn-
estness and seriousness.
Will Seize Opportunities
"Surely, the schools of today must
seize the present opportunities to ren-
der unlimited service to the country,
for America needs'a generation of citi-
zens trained to do thoroughly and ac-
curately whatever it undertakes. Here
is where the emphasis must lie. It is
the old-fashioned, insistent, unescap-
able demand lying back of all worthy
effort in any field. It means exact,
precise, conformity to facts. It re-
quires the elimination of mistakes,
errors, and defects.
"It calls for delicacy, nicety, and
precision of thought and action. It'
demands the rigor of the mathematical
and scientific spirit. The public school
system of America can render no
greater service to our democracy than
to equij a group of citizens, who in-
stinctively and habitually work and
think with accuracy and precision.
Here is the old demand expressed in
the terms of a new day.,"
President Burton stated that another
great duty of the present day public
schools is to place a higher value upon
the art of teaching, in order to awakenk
the students to a sense of the .best
things in life. "Any.careful student
of American education recognizes that
a new tendency is at work in our
entire educational system," he said.
"It arouses the concern if not the
opposition of those who idealize tech-
nical skill, of those who are ardentE
advocates of research, and of those
who, considering their good taste, look
with disdain upon 'inspiration.'"
Generation Faces Task
