ALWAYS INSIST WILLIAMS ON v! . . kiss, COMPULSORY CHAPEL AND LECTURES The folowing article was taken from the Yale News: institutions which have existed since the college began, and havi of moral and mental training, are marked for the scrap heap: compulsory chapel and compulsory lectures. "These are the pro posed' changes made by the new editorial board of the Yale News. Hereaf tei if this editorial policy prevails, Yale men may be- both pious and learned but only of their own free will and in their free way. If crabbed age finds itself, for once in a blue moon, in hearty accon with youth insurgent, it may be because the proposed reforms are not s new as the undergraduate editors imagine. Long ago it became eviden that the cause of piety is not served by uprooting youth from its slumbei and piling it into chapel bronkfastless, clad in pajamas, rubber boots an raincoat. The fact is that, hi the multitudinous modern university, bot: chapel and lectures have lost their ancient function, being a mere Instrume. of policing. The evil of this system falls primarily upon the lecturer. Men of "mini and tepid enthusiasm permit themselves to mumble and drone. Why shou they be doomed to "cover" briefly subjects that have enlisted tho pens t the masters of history, literature, science ? With all its sweeping radicalisi The Yale News advocates freedom only for juniors and seniors, and only fc such of these as maintain a scholarship stand of 75 per cent. .It doe3 no occur to it that the effective teaching is intimate and personal tutoria' that no man should be permitted to lecture who cannot command and rewar. voluntary attendance.

Positive results are being accomplished in helping the college graduate Ifind the work he is best fitted to do. A following out of certain specific considerations will materially aid the young man who, after four or more years of intensive training such as is now offered in the major schools of "the country, facc life's work. The terms "career" and "life's work" are used advisedly because in most cases the college graduate has fairly well decided what he wishes to do. After this his major problem is tho selection of the particular organization in which he is to give his energies play. On the other hand, thero are a largo number of young men who have little ideas of the lino of work in which they can be most effective, asd here again .the choosing of u company in which they may properly "find" themselves is 'most important. A few years ago, except in isolated cases, there was apparantly no scientific method in any young man's mind as to how such u problem could be approached. As a result, th man, as well as the industry, lost a great 'deal of time in getting to the place whore a proper contribution could be made and rewarded. With the recent growth on an increasingly close relationship between educational institutions and industry, however, the program begins to take definito shape; and it is our belief that in later years jhe average student will attack this problem of choosing the company withvhich he wishes to become affiliated in much the sume manner as he attacks any laboratory test; first setting up his problem, then getting Master of Icebergs I an tne intellectual lceoergs you M.ft.aLjit college, and your degree wilimean hydro-electri- THE s ANFORD'S PASTE a new kind of college degree something.
