Faculty Help
Awaits New
Boyer Establishes
Advisory Board
Established this year as a highly
desirable feature of freshman week
at the University is the faculty
committee of freshman advisers.
Its personnel is diversified and its
functions are new and justifiable.
The board, chosen by President
C. V. Boyer, is composed of 27 pro
fessors or instructors on the rolls
of the University faculty. Begin
ning Wednesday of Freshman week,
freshman will be given personal in
terviews lasting 20 minutes. All
freshmen who have mailed in their
credentials at least one week before
registration will have been assigned
personal interviews prior to their
arrival on the campus. The board
is represented by all divisions of
instruction in the University.
Valuable Advice Offered
The purpose of this group is to
advise students fairly and impar
tially as to courses of study. An
effort will be made to place fresh
men in contact with men acting as
representatives of the entire Uni
versity while at the same time uti
lizing men specially equipped as ex
pert advisers. This way it is as
sumed that the freshman will be
advised entirely from his own in
terests and aptitudes—as a possible
student in any of the many schools.
Such procedure should be invalu
able to those who are not definitely
decided on any special course and
to those who have immature and
incomplete viewpoints as to the
value and requirements of different
fields of endeavor.
Confusion Frequent
Many new students are not
“clear" on subjects offered at the
University. Because of limited con
tacts with chosen fields, and ro
mantic illusions as to the require
ments, both inherent and academic,
for these fields, many students are
shunted into studies for which they
are not prepared nor adapted. For
example, previously those students
who have expressed an interest in
a particular major school have been
directed to the head of that school.
This student was then advised on
the assumption that he had chosen
his life vocation whether or not
this choice be based on actual and
complete knowledge of the situa
tion. This year each freshman will
be given the opportunity to become
acquainted with all branches of the
University. And although no at
tempt will be made to dissuade him
from following his education on his
own interests careful analysis and
impartial advice will be offered him.

board are:

Chancellor Hunter also paid a

Group IV—
People who went to col
lege but did not graduate.. 77.6 j
Group V -College graduates 84.4
College Graduates Favored
The percentage employed in each
of these groups is that indicated
above. You will note that all but
16 per cent of the college group in
the city were employed, while more
than 53 per cent of the “sixth grade
educated” family heads were un
employed. Note also the advan
tage which the college graduate had
over the high school graduate. Of
the college graduates more than 84 i
per cent were employed, while of j
the high school graduates less than
70 per cent were employed. This j
shows definitely an advantage in
favor of the college graduate of ten |
points, dr 14 per cent.
In earning pov/er the advantage
of the college graduates is even
greater. The “sixth grade edu-j
cated” individuals were receiving
$67.60 per month, the high school
graduates $100.12, the college grad
uates $145.93. There is thus an ad- j
vantage of more than 100 per cent i
in favor of the college graduate as (
against the man with the sixth
grade education, and of 45 per cent t
over the high school graduate.
Exceptions Few
Of course, it is obvious that in
general those who have received
college training have higher nat
ural ability, and occasionally some-:
one without a college education
may rank as high as the college |
graduate, both in efficiency and in
earning power. But this fact in
nowise contradicts the positiveness j
of the arguments in favor of a col-1
lege preparation. It is clearly evi-;
dent that a college education pays:
richly from an economic standpoint.,
The college prepared man not only '
succeeds more completely and fully;
in normal and prosperous times, '■
but is much more resistant to the
ravages of economic crises and de

[ refer to Mr. William Henry Cham-!
jerlin, for twelve years past one of
he ablest newspaper correspond- {
:nts in Russia. Mr. Chamberlin j
ipproached the Russian problem
.vith deep sympathy and enthusi
asm. After twelve years’ observa- ■
Lion he concludes that the oppor
:unities and benefits of democracy i
a,re surpassingly great as against
Ihe Russian communist dictator
ship. In the Atlantic for Novem
ber, 1934, under the caption “Fare
tvell to Russia," Mr. Chamberlin
"It was during my trip through
the famine regions of Ukrafna i
and the North Caucasus that I
became utterly and definitely
convinced that democracy, with
all its faults, weaknesses and im
perfections, is enormously supe
rior to dictatorship as a method
of government, simply from the
point of view of the common man.
Is there any recorded case in his
tory where famine- not poverty
or hardship or destitution, but
stark famine, with a toll of mil
lions of lives—has occurred in a
democratically governed coun
try ? Is it conceivable that the
famine of 1932-1933 could have
taken place if civil liberties had
prevailed in the Soviet Union?”
What more potent challenge can
come to an American youth than
to picture himself as a prepared
leader in the modern democratic so
ciety of America and the Western
World, as he finds his answer to
the question, “Does a College Edu
cation Pay?” The problems of de
mocracy are baffling and almost
overwhelming; but the young man
and the young woman of today, as
with the young pioneers of the past,
are not daunted by obstacles appar
sntly insurmountable. The best in
them arises to meet the challenge
and make the conquest.
The youth whom I salute will in
large numbers continue to use the
laboratories and libraries of our
great colleges and universities to
equip themselves for the fray.
