Dean Schwering Talks
On Philomelete and
Its Aid; Girls Greeted
By Martha Stewart
About one hundred girls were
entertained by Philomilete, hobby
group organization, at a party held
in the AWS rooms in Oerlinger
hall Sunday evening.
The rooms were decorated with
balloons and colored streamers.
Singing of Oregon songs, and a
short program consisting of a skit
by the charm group and short
talks by hobby group leaders was
presented and refreshments were
servel. Mrs. Hazel P. Schwering,
dean of women, gave a brief re
sume of the founding of Philo
milete, and its worth to girls inter
ested in campus activities.
Girls Given Welcome
Martha Stewart, president of
Phi Theta Upsilon, junior women’s
service honorary, welcomed the
girls, and told them how to get in
touch with the particular group
that interested them.
Elisabeth Stetson, chairman of
the hobby groups, was in charge
of the meeting and acted as master
of ceremonies for the program. She
was assisted by members of Phi
Theta Upsilon. Hobby group lead
ers are Margaret Goldsmith, charm
school; Frances Olsen, drama; Kay
Staples, travel; Julianne Fortmil
ler, art and music; Ora May Hold
man, prose and poetry; and Jane

cooperation in the joint processes
of learning between faculty anil
students. There too often exists an
attitude of conflict between the
faculty and the students rather
than that cooperative spirit which
should prevail. Students are not
here to justify faculty jobs, but
both are here for the joint enter
prise of learning'.
Third, an effort should be made
to treat students as adults, and,
insofar as possible, responsible
people. At the present time, in
manv of our institutions, one can
not turn around without running
into some sort of administrative
regulation. The college or univer
sity becomes a substitute for par
ents and is expected to do what
the parents have failed to do. Rea
sonable guidance is one thing, and
useless coddling is quite another
and definitely detrimental. The in
stitution tends to under-emphasize
our students’ maturity, while the
students tend to over-emphasize
their own sophistication. There is
a wide field for the development
of students' exercise of discipline
which might be exploited.
No Grades on Quizzes
Fourt, and this is the point up
on which I should like to be most
emphatic a system of quizzes
should be developed that would not
be, either for the student or the
faculty member, a device for as
signing so many i n d i v i d u a 1 s
grades. I should like to see quizzes
given that would be corrected, but
not graded. The questions would

then be gone over, to indicate
where the error lay and what the
coriect answer should have been.
In that way the quiz is made a
definite study help, rather than a
combination device of a statisti
can, a devil, and a Torquemada.
There would be a complete
change of emphasis with the
change in function. Even if the
business of the University is to
educate, it is not necessarily com
pelled to classify its students with
reference to one another, or on
some hypothetical or relative scale
of efficiency. At the present time,
because most of our institutions
endeavor to do this, the real teach
ing function of the quiz or exami
nation is lost sight of and becomes
simply a rather diabolical device
which causes misery to students
and instructors alike.
Hating System False
It is obvious, of course, that
some decision has to be made
whether to advance students from
a certain class or decide whether
a student is fitted to enter some
professional school. Such ends as
these can be determined much bet
ter by comprehensive examina
tions at the end of sophomore and
senior years, rather than by any
of the devices we now use, and
the false rating value now in use
would be avoided. This function of
the quiz as a study help, which it
is supposed to be now, but isn't,
would give rise, it seems to me, to
an entirely different attitude on
the part of students from that
which now exists.
In tiie graduate school of Col
umbia university, when I was
there, no grades wore ever given.
A student was either given a
'‘passed” or “failed,” and his right
to receive the doctorate rested up
on his oral and written examina
jtions, which were comprehensive
in nature, and the quality of his

-An independent survey was made recently

they smoke cigarettes, more than 87% stated they
personally prefer a light smoke.
Mr. Cooper verifies the wisdom of this prefer
