I t is Interesting how very provincial our Amerieau institutions of
high learning are about other American institutions, and how little they
know what is going on outside their own sphere of activity.
It is certainly necessary that we should take a reasonably intelligent
outlook of those things which are being done about us; the matter of the
preoeptorial system at Princeton and how it is working out; how our
friends at Amherst are succeeding in their attempt to revive interest in
the classical studies and how Harvard is succeeding in its endeavor to in
troduce a type of general examination. It is a matter of interest that we
should know how in the Middle West the great institutions are endeavoring
to work out some combination of the professional with the classical edu
cation. These are all things that any man who is interested in higher edu
cation should have some knowledge of and some interest in.
I feel that there is a considerable opportunity of improving our rela
tions among American institutions of higher learning by some more self-
conscious examination of the educational movement as it goes on in cen
ters other than our own.
