A Year of
I HERB U a (rowing recognition of
the need for the standardisation

stitution, of this country. Thl.

tive effort toward the accomplishment of
then ends through the distribution of the
Income of the flO.OtAOPO given to the On
ers! Education board by John D. Rocke
feller and of the $11,000,000 given by Andrew
Carnegie for the pensioning of college pro
fessors. This latter Is one of the most In
teresting events in the educational world
during the year, and will have ft wide
reaching effect upon the h'gher education
of the country. ... .
In regard to the standardisation of the '
wider distribution of. colleges and uni
versities, educators and the American
people generally are awakening to the
fact that the present system t ft collec
tion of several hundred Institutions of.
varying standards and alms, with little
relation to one another, may be' described
as ft systemIs wasteful In the use of
Its opportunities, its ' energies . and of .
The wastefulness In the use of oppor
tunity and energy has exhibited Itself
specially in the location of colleges. lr.
Walter H. Page in a recent article de
clared that the waste by duplication "had '
been so great that It was probable that if
the work of building, developing and con
structing colleges had been done In the
United State with good, asneiaj . judg-t,
ment from the beginning we ehould now
have developed with the eame expend!-.,
tare that has been made an efficient and
well equipped and locally maintained col
lege within easy reach of every youth who
could profit by It. The opportunity to se
cure an education of the higher character
near at hand often breeds the desire. It
Is said of the Inhabitants of ft certain
Connecticut town, li which agriculture la
the chief occupation, that tn conversation
they are on ft par with college men. Doubt
less one of the reasons la that a welt
known private preparatory school has
flourished in , that town for more. than.
' fifty years and has afforded tho people
an opportunity of securing ft good educft-
tlon at ft moderate cost. '
Wavatefalaess of Location. ,
The wastefulness In location has many
Illustrations among the hundreds of In
stitutions calling themselves colleges or
, universities and granting degrees. For
Instance, in one southern town there are
two Methodist colleges. One is assisted
by the northern branch of the Methodist
church, the other by the southern. 1 Thoy
are, of course, rivals for their constitu
encies are In the same territory. Dr. Page
mentions another Instance. He writes:
"I know ft town where there are two
colleges. At each of them the boys are
; taught the usual ' subjects, anolont and
modern languages, mathematics, physics
and chemistry, and they are taught with
practically the same 'degree of thorough
ness. In several departments they use the
same textbooks, and several members of
the faculty of one college were trained
at the same university as several mem
bers of the other faculty. These two col
leges have buildings and grounds, too,t
that are very much alike. One has a finer
house for Its library than the other, but
the college with the poorer building boasts
that It has a better collection of books.
One has ft more pretentious dormitory
than the other, but this advantage, too. Is
offset by some corresponding disadvan
tage. If you stay In this town for ft while
you will discover that the population Is
divided Into two parts those families
who think that the college on this side of
the town is better than the college on the
other aide of the town, and those families
that hold the contrary view. Each group
Is forever talking about the "better
"spirit" of Its college. Inside the college
themselves this college "spirit at times
becomes Intense. Most of the boy who
are graduated at one -college earnestly
thank heaven that their parents or chance
or their own good Judgment kept them
from becoming students of tho ether,
with Its far worse "spirit" Tet if. stand
ing outakle this partisanship, you were to
take a serious measure of the work and
worth of these colleges, you would find
It hard to decide which is the more useful
to the . community. The boys ho have
gone out from one have become as useful
men as the boys who have gone out from
the other. Tou would discover that the

president of one Is a somewhat broader
man than the president of the other, but
they are, after all, men of the eame good
type. Some of the teachers In one are
better than some fthe teachers In the
other, but this remark can be turned
around with reference to other teachers,
The presidents of both of these colleges
were asking for money from the same two
or three rich men, the chief difference be.
Ing that one asked for a library, while the
other sought ft contribution to hl endow-
ment. There are not enough students at
both to make more than ft moderate slsed
college, yet the community Is e-ked to sup-
port two Institutions, with two presidents
and two faculties, each doing much the
samo work; two libraries, etc. The Income
of both, which, divided, maintains neither
well, would support one very well, and
enable It to do much better work than
either does now.
In another town, not forty miles away. Is
a third college furnished by the state. This
Institution Is a competitor with the other
two for students In the same locality.
A glance over the different states shows
that In many of them the real college needs
have not been known, and as a result of
Ignorance of conditions, the best posslbto

In South Dakota, a state having ft popu-
allot less than hsJf that of Cotmectlcut.
there are eight colleges, all of which i are
down In the southeast comer of the Urge
stat and away from the center of popuU-
tlon. If on. cul?

that there la ft double row, containing
