EXISTING under no authority

to every student, an undergraduate
group today presents its analysis of
the University’s educational mach
Tho persons now engaged in this
task, which is a continuation of a
movement begun last spring, consid

martyss. They are not bent on revo

or on inculcating in the student

The spirit, of mass production that

versities and colleges. The old ideal
of education as an end in itself has
been relegated to the scrap-heap to

by tho university as a training cen

Most of the universities, this in
stitution no less than any other,
have centered their attention on this
phase of activity: the development
-of efficient bread-winners. Any
students who retain some sliado of
the old notions of education find
themselves sadly out of step with
tho mass, and must depend, in the
main, upon themselves for the real

All the new self-constituted com
mittee asks is that those students
who wish t-o seek education as an
■end in itself (and it is certain there
are some who hold to this ambition)
be given some consideration by the
University, and an opportunity
to achieve this end.
In today’s Emerald appears a
definition of the committee’s aims,
and the grounds for its dissatisfac

tional system. This is the forerun
ner of occasional suggestions in the
development of the group’s pro
It is hoped that those persons
who find in the committee's state
niient an expression of their own
views, and who feel the movement
worthy of their support will make
known their opinions, and throw
their support to the group, which
after all is representing an educa
tional ideal,—more so than a num
ber of students.
TIIIS is a story of the evolution
of the university professor. The
author is Dr. Omrence Cook Little,
president of the University of Mich

the National Student Federation.
So brutally frank is this pronounce

“Most professors (he said) reach
their positions through a curious
process. After they receive their
pass-key into that intellectual gar
ret of Phi Beta Kappa, the devil,
in the form of some friend, whis

teach. They often accept the sug
gestion, and after securing their
master’s degrees, they write a thes
is on somo such subject as ‘The
Suspenders of Ilonry VIII’ and
then are qualified to teach. A thes
is subject is by definition a. sub
ject about which no one ever cared
to write before.
“This type of man is then put in
charge of a group of freshmen and
he generally has a great disdain of
their consummate ignorance, while
they on their part have a great
lisdain for his consummate learning.
Sometime someone springs up among
the freshmen with the declaration
that the suspenders of Henry VIII
are the most important things in
the world. Immediately the profes
sor picks him up from the bog of
ignorance in which the rest of the
freshmen lie and starts him on the
path to another professorship.’’

Perhaps Air. Sandburg was not

QUICK EDGAR, PUT THE
vORK IN THAT HUS!
Los Angeles, (PIP)—Track fans
will have plenty of opportunities to
see a return sprint classic this
spring between Charley Paddock,
world record holder, and Charley
Borah, Southern California’s sensa
tional sophomore dash man, if pres
ent plans carry through. The Tro
jan and the Los Angeles Athletic
club teams are both entered in three
events where a century race feat
The first is February 26 at the
A. A. U. relays where an open 100
is listed. Paddock, who runs for
L. A. A. C., may not be in condition
for that meet but Borah will run.
The second affair is the Southern
Pacific A. A. U. championships on
April 16 and the third meeting is
slated at a triangular meet between
the Hollywood and Los Angeles
Athletic clubs and the Trojans.
At the 1926 A. A. U. champion
ships on May 15 Paddock and Borah,
the latter then a freshman, ran a
thrilling 100 yard dash. Paddock
was named the winner in the world
record time of 9.5 seconds, a mark
which has been officially accepted.
Many hoped to see the two meet at
the Nationals in Philadelphia but
Paddock was unable to make the
trip with the club team.
Los Angeles, (PIP)—Dates and
locations for the California ,and
Stanford track meets have been
switched for the Southern Califor
nia schedule, it was announced yes
terday by Gwynn Wilson, general
manager of the Trojan institution.
California will again come to Los
Angeles and the Southern Califor
nians will once more travel to Palo
Alto. The original dates had Stan
ford booked here March 26. Cali
fornia now takes this spo$ here, the
Cardinals being hosts to the Tro
jans on April 2, the afternoon first
scheduled with the Bears at Berk
This change sends the Cardinal
and Gold team to Palo Alto two
years in a row but also brings the
Bears south for two successive years.
The shift puts the meets on the old
time basis where the team which
travels in football is home team in
The shift is hard on Southern Cal
ifornia, Stanford now being favor
ites to win its dual affair with Troy.
The Trojans, however, now take a
slight edger over the Bears because
of the trip.
Los Angeles, (PIP)—Track and
field men who have never earned a
monogram in that sport will engage
in a novice track meet at Southern
California Friday afternoon. The
meet, to be staged on Bovard field,
is for the purpose of giving Coach
Dean Cromwell a line on untried
material. Present freshmen and
sophomores will feature the event.
A few letter men will be in events
in which they have never competed
in intercollegiate meets.
Los Angeles, (PIP)—Track and
not baseball will be the spring sport
activity of Morton Kaer, all-Am
erican halfback at Southern Cali
fornia. Kaer hinted earlier in the
year that he might go out for base
ball instead of track in order to
make letters in four major sports.
This week, however, he announced
he would engage in track. Kaer was
a member of the Southern California
team which last year won the Na
tional Intercollegites at Boston.
Kaer was entered in the low hurdles
but did not place.

University of Idaho.—(P. I. P.)
—The first issue of the paper after
Christmas vacation, the Argonaut
was printed with seven columns to
the page instead of six, as had been
the policy for the past several
years. Added press facilities have
enabled this change.
The new Argonaut will contain
considerably more news as well as
more advertising as a result of the
change. The paper originally was
printed only three columns wide;
but as the school and news grew,
the paper became six columns in
size. However, the four-page style
will be retained and the days of
issue will not be changed.
The new press facilities include
the latest, type of Duplex flat bed
presses, which prints, cuts and folds
the papers in a single operation,
and about 4000 copies can be print
ed in an hour.
U. of Southern California, (P. I.
P.)—Men -have superior intelligence
but they don’t use it, according to
statistics compiled by N. Bradford
Trenham, M.A., statistical assist
of S. C.
The result of the Thorndyke ex
amination for high school graduates
shows that the average intelligence
of men is 7 per cent higher than
that of women. Apparently men
make a better showing in stiff ex
aminations of intelligence and mem
ory than women do. But why, oh
why, if men are better equipped
mentally, don 7t they use this knowl
edge"? For women consistently have
25 per cent better grades than men.
The best and the- worst grades
are made by men, which accounts
for genius and dumbness. Women
have the best group averages which
proves that intelligence is not the
only factor to be considered.

University of Washington, Seat
tle, (PIP)—Embodying a pseudo
judgeship and a system of cross
questioning, an entirely new style
of debate will be inaugurated at the
University of Washington this year.
The new form will consist of a

tearri, each talk being followed by
10 minutes questioning, and a final
10 minutes summary and rebuttal
for each side. The chairman will
cease to be a figurehead and will
act more in the capacity of a judge,
as he will decide upon the relevancy
of questions asked by the debaters,
and will also act as interpreter of
certain issues brought up.
Sum of Student Fines
Less Than Last Year
Whether students are being more
careful about getting their books
back to the library this year, or they
have decided not to use so many
books, the fines on late and lost
books for the year 1926 was only
$1,668.41 in contrast to the $1,872.27
of the year before. The difference
in fines amounts to $203.86.
