HOW IS YOUR BEHAVIOR?
Charles W. Eliot, president emeritus of Harvard Univer
sity, is reported by the New York Tribune as being shocked
by thq coarsened manners of young people of today. Accord
ing to the metropolitan journal, the noted educator has noticed
a change in customs of young people, in their manners, and in
their actions. He says:
“In the first place there is quite general coarsening
of manners, the coarsening of greetings and goodbyes.
. , . . Young men and young women nowadays talk
chiefly slang to each other. Their address to each other
and the conversation they have together have a rough
form and relate to things, events, processes and subjects
which the young men and women of my day never re
ferred to at all, never mentioned, and did not propose to
“‘.I also notice that young women expect to encoun
ter rudeness from young men and that they don’t much
resent it. For instance, in my time it would have been,
im extreme rudeness for a man to take a girl to drive and .
smoke a cigar on the way. In fact, in my time I never
saw such a thing done or attempted' except by downright
“All such scruples have disappeared. . . . I have
hebn cognizant of efforts made on the part, of college
authorities to prevent Boston matrons who were conduct
ing assemblies or dancing parties from inviting agaim
freshmen who had disgraced themselves by becoming
drunk at dances Those efforts were in vain. They
were not regarded by the matrons addressed.”
T)r. Eliot certainly describes present-day conditions among
your people correctly. No doubt other conditions, upon which
the article in the Tribune tailed to report I)r. Eliot as comment -
dig, would also appall 1 tie noted educator.. The conditions
Wliiejh Dr. Eliot describes exist here to fully as great an extent
as at Harvard. AVe have grown up along with them, it seems,
until the actions ot young men in the presence of women seem
nothing out of the ordinary to us., Are young men behaving
rudely and coarsely? Are young women partly to blame for
permitting such actions? Dr. Eliot describes himself as speak
ing as “an old-fashioned man.” Do you think there is need
The Fenton Memorial library is one of the greatest gifts
ever made to the University. Students no doubt realize its
importance, and no doubt appreciate the spirit of those who
made the wonderful addition to the law school library possible.
The least that any student can do to show his appreciation
and his thanks is to attend the formal ceremony of presenta
tion and acceptance at assembly today.

CORRECT STUDY HIM
II UNIVERSITY HIGH
H. R. Douglass Tells How
Students Are Taught
A system whereby students learn to
study efficiently and successfully is the
supervised study method used in the
University high school. Inefficient meth
ods are done away with by this means,
says Professor Harl It. Dougiass, super
visor of the school, and the students
learn how to make the best use of time
spent over their books.
Supervised study means that the work
is done in the presence of a teacher,
who is ready to give any necessary help.
Many times difficulties which the teacher
could remove by a hint bring the student
to a standstill, Mr. Douglass said, but
by the method of supervised study the
pupil receives a needed amount of guid
ance in his work. This does not mean
that the student becomes mnl.i,, t '
on his own account, according t°0 pUdy
fessor Douglass; he ' ■ ir°
is taught the ■
