Tim Oatilur or Course unl Inttrurlur
The marked gain iu attoudaaco, var
iety thoroughness of courses, and qual
ity of students shown In last year's
summer school of the University, liaH
encouraged botl faculty and regents
toward still groatcr advancement. The
regents and chancellor wore so well
pleased with the results that an in
creased appropriation has been made
and InHpector T. M. Hjodgman re
appointed director. The plana are fully
tiiatured ia most Instances and provl
BlonQlly moBo. to the- minutest-1 detail,
Briefly the lending features nro, the
course In superintendents conducted
by" Superintendent W. L. Stephens of
the .Lincoln city achools, assisted by
able superintondentH from within and
without tho state. The problems of
school management will be treated hy
pnotical , school executives. Oub very
helpful nhu very attractive feature of
tnlB course- wll bo the lectures by
Dean Roscoo Pound on "Nebraska
School .Laws." Last summer this
course received an attendance of over
s&Jyr It?laiflaijn'cl pflmarlly to meet
the heeds of prospective superinten
dents and principles ana it is Baio to
pay that no course can be taken by
University studonts contemplating
teaching, which will compare with this
in practical holpfulncsa. The course
Is unique In this western country and
ta a pet project of tho director's, who
has long flt and has recently been
even more U. ssed during his inspec
torship, that green University grad
uate may be long on theories, facts and
methods, but very short In correct
knowledge of men and students in
high school work. Theso practical su
perintendents will give heart to heart
co'Sferentca'' showing- jusf'tho way in
which they havo met tho concrete
problems of tno executive. Superinten
dent Stephens, assisted by Professor
l.uckel, Is overcoming tho weaknesses
displayed In the initial course last
year and is planning a sewes ot lectures-In
which there shall be no Overlapping-
of subpects and which shall
bo .wisely supplemented by library'
reudiuga and round table conferences.
In addition to this course Professor
Luckey wiil offer three courses from
his department most in demand by

of the summer school without regis
tration. Theso lectures wllf'o under
the title "Dominent Notes In Modem
Education" and will aim to give the
recent developments, approval methods
and deslrablo ends In Important depart
ments of high Bchool worlL It Is ex
pected that. -Dr. Q. E. Howard will

teaching, Dr. E. A. Ross in recont so
cial movements. Dr. G. W. A. Luckey
in Education, Professor G. E. Barbor
in Ancient Languages and "Professor
Lawrence- Fosslor In Modern Lan

bev especially helpful to teachers and
students slnco they will furnish, In
clear and untechnlcal language, the
final word of theso departments. The
course of Illustrated evening lectures,
which proved' so popular last year, will
b continued this summer on each Fri

Prof. Richards "I think it would be
a good tiling and would abolish some
of the questionable evils existing undor
the prcsont conditions. But do not
think it should go Into otfect for at
least two years."
Prof. Chatburn "1 am In favor of it

Dr. Loor "I am not in favqr of tho

Dr. Dales "Whilo I havo givon the

Dr. Clapp "Tho rulo would cut out

great and would bo given up by those

C. T. Bor "Nebraska has never
been guilty of proselyting and hence i
the rulo would crdato n.o reform here.
It would, howover, hamper ua because
It would not make the freshmen ma

would- work a greater hardship than in
the larger institutions wkoro there is
always an abundance of material. I
think tho proposed rule liadvltaor4gin

never be adopted.. If it shppld be
