Holmes dean of the Harvard graduate school of education, told a Crimson reporter, in another diagnosis of the country's educational ills. "Justified a hundredfold in our faith in schooling as an instrument of democracy." he said, "we have cared more for the spread of education than for its fitness for special ends . . . The root of the difficulty lies in the relationship between the secondary schools and the colleges.- - .Our students come to college 'prepared,' but with hardly the Book-Cadill- ANNOUNCING C iS?B W Je5? Says That Demand For Technically Trained Men Is Unsupplied The following is the text of an address delivered over radio station hotel, Detroit, WJR, the on Friday, April G, by F. Paul Anderson, dean of the Engineering College at the University. Dean Anderson, who is accompanying the senior engineers on their' annual inspection trip, was asked to speak whilq the entourage was in Detroit. "America is busy supplying the world with manufactured products. "The first attempt to .apply the principle of production on this planet was in 1807 when Eli Terry of Connecticut made a. contract to produce 3,000 clocks all alike in one year; today it is the ambition of a Detroit Automobile manufacturer to build 3,000 cars a day every day of the year. "This speeding up of the world's work has created an unsupplied demand for technically trained men. "All over this country universities are giving to those alert youths who have the grit and ambition" to carry on in one of the thorough courses of engineering the academic foundation of successful careers in industry. "The colleges of engineering are swamped with orders for youngsters who finish the undergraduate courses and are ready to take up the process of learning some one's business. "The college of engineering that sets out to make a finished engineer is spoiling good material. "Colleges can only give the fundamental training, the industries are able and enthusiastic about qualifying the college man to be a specialist eminently fitted to first preserve the traditions of any industry then to prove valuable in developing any industry.

"These thoroughbreds are seniors in the University of Kentucky. They have lived in the pastoral part of America all their lives but are ready in June to make themselves acquainted with the processes of some industry; then, perhaps, later help carry the burden of administration of the industry to which they attach themselves, immediately upon leaving college. "The first picture of a great city like Detroit with all its wealth of achievement is like a dream of the paradise of opportunity to the youngster who has all the basic qualities of success in body and heart. "It, happens the Kentucky party is whose stopping at the president, Roy Carruthers, was once an unsophisticated Kentucky youth but has learned a thing or two about the hotel business to make him a real king in the game of providing comfort and luxury to the human away from home.

Hull to Be Executive Committee Held in Meridian, Conference ReiterMississippi ates 1920 Resolution. Inter-Fraterni- Dr. D. C. Hull, president of Ken tucky Wesleyan College for the past three years, quietly passed away on Wednesday night, April 14, after a lingering illness. A beautiful memorial service was held in the college chapel Thursday afternoon. Speakers representing the faculty, board of trustees, Methodist church, the citi zens of Winchester and Clark county, and the studentf body paid tribute .to the memory of the deceased president. The body was conveyed to Lexing ton at the head of a long procession of loved ones and friends, where it was placed on train en route to Meridian, Miss. The funeral ceremony and interment took place at the latter city, the former home of Dr. and Mrs. The attention of the executive committee of the Interfraternity Conference has been called to the fact that at many . colleges and universities e fraternity initiations are again becoming matters of common occurrence. The executive committee believes that under the circumstances it would be wise to call attention again to the attitude of the Interfraternity Conference, as set out in a resolution of the Conference adopted n 1920, which reads as follows: "Whereas, it appears from reports here that hazing in fraternities still exists, arising from practices in initiations, either in real or fake initiations, either before, or during the ceremonies of initiation, and "Whereas, the Interfraternity Conference has at divers times and by resolution in 1920 Conference, con demned these practices, "Therefore, be it "Resolved, That it is the sense of this Conference that .this Conference e condemn these practices of initiations, whether fake initiations or a part of the real initiations, whether preceding or made a" part of the ceremonies, incident to initiation at any time or in any form. "We consider these practices as silly and dangerous, as opposed to the dignity and ideals of college fraternities, and injurious to their good name, and we recommend that all fraternities take steps to eliminate any such practice from their own or ganizations, if same be indulged in, rough-hous- Hull.

"The commanding problem of liberal education in America is the problem of unifying secondary education and collegiate education without denying the essential characters nad modern development of i';ther. To find a remedy for the existing situation is a difficult problem. The system of concentration and distribution, now used here at Harvard, with general examinations at the final stages of progress in the subjects of concentration might be tried in the preparatory schools, and prove the solution to the problem.

Contrasted with the students in English and Continental secondary schools they must be rated, age for age, markedly inferior. There is no thoroughness or consistency in our school system. Our schools suffer from that disease that keeps them permanently enfeebled 'credititis,' the itch for credits, points, units, and semester hours. We are in the midst of a generation of students and teachers obsessed with the notion that organization in education means more than anything else. "Educationally, we are a nation of credit hunters and degree worshippers. Studies are considered mere payments demanded for the fun of being in school and the later privileges of college life.
