that the University has to offer.
They have genuine enthusiasm!
for their classes, real interest m
their students as human beings.
Probably they never write any
thing, never conduct exhaustive
research or complicated experi
ments. Many of these men have
not attained the rank of profes
sor, or even of associate profes
sor. Yet they are far more val
uable to the University and to
the students than their highly
touted faculty brothers.
There are a few faculty men
here who combine a widespread
reputation as a scholar with real
teaching ability and interest in
their classes!- But these scholar-teachers
may be enumerated
the fineers of one hand.
Under the modern faculty sys
tern at institutions of higher
learning,' those who gain nation
al recognition because of extra-
curricula activities are far more
likely to receive the advance
ments and rewards bestowed by
the institutions than the rea
teachers, who do not turn time,
or perhaps do not have the abil-
selves for different professions.
Furthermore, a student often
discovers during his first two
years that his ideas about the
profession that he intended to
pursue when he entered college
were wrong. This statement is
substantiated by the large num
ber of transfers, which take
place between the various de
partments of the University be
fore the junior year.
A uniform curriculum for the
first two years of work in every
department would almost en
tirely eliminate this transfer
grievance. After having been
here two years, a student knows
what he is going to do (if, in
deed, he ever does know). Fur
thermore, the same fundamen
tals are needed for any and all
We firmly advocate a uniform
curriculum covering the fresh
man and sophomore years.

Teachers, Scholars .
Many of the University's
most renowned and conceited
faculty members would be
quite disagreeably surprised to
hear themselves discussed by a
group of their students. For
the average undergraduate, de
spite his multitudinous defici
encies, is a rather capable judge
of the true worth of his profes
sors as teachers.
Numbered among the mem
bers of the University faculty
are quite a few illustrious schol
ars; men who have attained na
tional reputations by writing
books and participating in vari
ous forms of activity that are
not in-the least concerned with
their abilities as teachers. Yet
every person who has had
classes tinder , these men know
that comparatively few. of them
are really capable of teaching
a college course. On the con
trary, far too many of these
noted scholars are so occupied
with their outside activities that
they have lost all interest in
their classes, all regard for their
students as seekers after knowl
edge. They impart the impres
sion that thev recrard their
teaching duties as distasteful,
necessary but none the less to
hp Hisnosed of with as little
trouble and attention as pos
sible. . ;
On the other hand, it is evi
dent to the thoughtful under
graduate that there are many
men in the faculty who have no
widespread reputations outside
of their state or even beyond the
ranks of those who have taken
cVmlns-hV farne and honors. Of
the two groups of professors,
the teachers who are not real
scholars and the. scholars who
are not real teachers, the for
mer are far more valuable from
an undergraduate point of view.
Of course, the ideal faculty
type is the teacher-scholar. But
unfortunately such men are
rare indeed. Many professors
who would perhaps make good
teachers if they were not so im
mersed in the writing of their
books or the conducting of their
research, are utterly incompe
tent as instructors.
More recognition should be
nven to the teacher, a greater
share of the rewards of profes
sorial labor should be his. Pe
dants there are in plenty here,
and some of them even achieve
renown, but small salaries and
obscuritv fall to the lot of the
man who aspires to be a teacher
first, and then a scholar.
Undergraduates are some
times swayed by narrow person
al pre j udices and are deceived
by popularity-seeking instruc-
but their estimates of the
