Health officials hope to "integrate
the whole University in the men
tal health program" by promoting
better understanding of mental
health. Dr. Wilson said the pro
gram should not only help stu
dents over their own problems
but also help establish a 'general
framework for better mental
health throughout the University.
Eventually the University plans
to employ a system similar to that
of the University of Denver in
regard to cooperation between the
psychiatric clinic and Teachers
college. At Denver, each prospec
tive teacher is given a psychiatric
interview to discuss problems of
themselves and future pupils.
Such a program, Dr. Wilson
pointed out, would not screen
out teachers, but merely give
the individual the modern con
ception of mental health, for
use personally and in the class
room. A similar program may
be worked out with other col
leges, Dr. Wilson said.

Dr. C. W. Borgmann, dean of fac
