BUILDINGS AND EDUCATION ..
There appears In another part of
this paper a statement by Chancellor
Avery in which he answers some of
the charges made by Dr. Glenn
Frank, president of the University of
Wisconsin, against educational meth
ods of modern colleges and univer
sities. Dr. Frank charged that universi
ties tended to overemphasize their
building programs. "We are in dan
ger," he said, "of falling into the be
lief that architects and landscape
gardeners can create universities."
The statement made by Chancellor
Avery justly points out that ' the
statements made by Dr. Frank can
not apply at Nebraska, nor to any,
except one or two, of the state uni
versities. One of the great needs
of this institution is that of class
rooms and library space. State in
stitutions, on the whole, are crowded
to their doors so that they have to

dents and prevent others from enter

Dr. Frank also charges that a great
mass of knowledge is at hand, due to
the rapid advances of science and
thinkers, which the universities have
failed to organize. He asserts that
the whole intellectual fabric is weak
and that students, on their gradua
tion day, find their minds cold stor

It might be well for state univer
sities to heed these words of even
so spectacular a critic as the new
president of the University of Wis
consin. The curricula of our col
leges have come to us from the past
and, in some places at least, do not
take into account the vast changes in
the knowledge regarding the world
The lutter part of the last century
saw the g.-eat fight of the sciences
for a place in the curriculum of gen
eral university courses. The result,
as we have it now, seems to be a sort
of compromise between the sciences
and the humanities with the sciences
having the upper hand. The difficul
ty seems to be, however, that each
subject has intrenched itself so that
a student is graduated with so many
packages of unrelated facts in his
Revision of the curriculum is urged
by such varied writers as the Dart
mouth Senior Committee, the late
President Schultz of Reed College,
Dr. Meiklejohn, and Professor
Richardson in his book "A Study of
the Liberal College." These writers
are urging the revision of the cur
riculum with two ends in mind, (1)
that the individual shall see the civil
ization in which he lives as it has
come about and as it exists today,
and (2) that the individual Btudent
shall develop his natural capabilities
to their highest possible degree.
The curriculum as pictured by these
men would be a carefully co-ordinated
and integrated series of courses
in the early stage of his college
career calculated to give the student
a general idea of his past with some
opportunity to specialize in a sub
ject of his tastes later on. It is so
carefully devised, however, that the
whole four years mean something
as a whole and do not represent a
mere collection of unrelated courses.
Along with the working out of the.
physical needs of the institution
should occur some changes in the
methods of presenting knowledge.
The trend of recent discussion as
regards both colleges and universi
ties indicates that s ich change is
considered necessary and practicable.

A HAVEN FOR MEN

this country have made some provi-

dents. This club or gathering place
usually called the University
Union. At some universities large

swimming pools, dining halls, and
everything else which will contribue
to the comfort of the men students.
They are the centers of men's acti
vities and contain the offices of the
men's organizations. At the Univer
sity of Michigan a new Union has
been put up. It includes a lounging
nrl RmoVinp; room, a amino; n!!, S
grill room, a cafeteria, organization
headquarters and meeting rooms. It
is quite elaborately furnished and is
graduated. A very scholarly pro-
fessor at this university once stated
that his experience in having lived
in a more than ordinary fine dormi
tory at an eastern college was of
great benefit to him. An education
must consist of more than the absorb
ing of information and the develop
ment of the intellect for clear think
ing. It consists also of learning to
talk well and to acquire poise, things
not learned from books alone, but
from congenial surroundings.
The University of Nebraska as an
institution has no money to spend in
the building of a Union. There are
too many immediate needs in the
way of classrooms and equipment.
But the building of a Union might be
handled in some other manner. The
Temple, built many years ago, was
intended as a sort of rendezvous, and
it was built, we believe, through
private contributions. Perhaps some
similar financing plan might build
a Union. Another suggestion is that
the money which is brought in by
athletics, and which is now being
used for the development of a physi
cal education plant, might, when this
is completed, be turned into a fund
for the consiruction of some haven
for the neglected men.
