A Sensible Attempt To
Ease The Activity Burden
In an attempt to ease the extra-curricula activities burden
which invariably falls on a few unfortunates, the student body
president and vice-president have evolved a system of activity
listing, which it is believed, will enable student leaders to dis
tribute the activity load evenly.
Most everyone agrees that a little “activities is a good
thing, but everyone is also agreed that too much activities is a
very bad thing. The happy medium seems to be that point
where the student carries both his scholastic and extra-curricula
interests successfully. When the studies begin to suffer, the
time has come to drop activities; but so often, to the student s
aerious detriment, the activities are carried and the studies
dropped. ... ,
With this goal in mind—to spread the activities evenly and
among as many persons as possible—the student officers, by
means of the questionaire filled out during registration, have
■^igted every person in ths University under those activities in
which they are interested. Under the proposed plan a running
record of each person will be kept, with the result that in no
case will too many “jobs” be heaped on one person.
While the plan is as yet imperfect because of lack of exper
ience on the part of those developing it, one may safely assume
that unusual success will result from the scheme, provided all
student leaders will lend their co-operation in making their
A Fallacy in Evaluating
Material prosperity is the legacy of collegiate graduates,
according to an item in the “Intercollegiate World. Based
upon statistics of earnings of students and graduates of the
college of business administration of Boston University and
other colleges, the Massachusetts Department of Labor finds
that the four years spent in college net the average graduate
$72 000. Thev report the total earnings of the high school
graduate between the ages of 18 and 60 to $78,000, while the
college man’s earnings from 22 to 60 they estimate to be
$150,000. ’ ’
These figures are most encouraging to the faltering stu
dent who finds himself approaching graduation with nothing
ahead save for a few hundred dollars in debts. To find that
future security probably awaits him is anything but bad news.
While one would be delighted to accept the obvious con
clusion—that a college education insures later financial secur
Jty_.fi moment’s thought will indicate that a college education,
in all probability, does not raise the average man’s earning
power to the extent indicated. It is easy to believe that col
lege graduates earn $72,000 more than the high school grad
uates, but it is equally difficult to believe that the college edu
cation is the solitary reason for this state of affairs.
The statisticians apparently overlook the fact that college
graduates are. a highly selected group. In the first place, most
persons graduating from college have a reasonable amount oi
intelligence coupled with a fair amount, of perseverance. Also,
so have entered the University and to have studied four years
indicates a seriousness of purpose. In short, those who have
gone through college, in most cases, are more intelligent, more
persevering and more adjusted to their surroundings than most
persons who have gone only through high school.
Had these college graduates for various reasons been denied
matriculation in the University the ultimate result of their edu
cation and their apparent success in life and incidentally, their
income, would not have been altered to any great extent.
Whether in college or not, the qualities of perseverance, intelli
gence and ambition of these people would most likely have im
pelled them to overcome the deficiencies caused by a lack of
formal University education.
A University education is a source of untold pleasure and
benefit; but it is no magic carpet to success, as the statistics
would have us believe.
