Of 18 articles on educational topics In tho

cal and oven Iconoclastic of ncademlo con

considerations, two aro descriptive, nnd tho
remaining eight, nearly half, aro concerned
with new nnd progressive possibilities and
wrinkles In tho art of teaching.
An article on "Academic Superstition nnd
Democracy" (1), by a former membor of tho
Vnssar faculty, Florenco Keys, clovcrly un
orthodox In Itself, gains added significance.
In thnt It Is sponsored by the Ynla Reviow,
an unofllclally official publication of tho uni
versity. Contrasting tho InOucnco of tho In
stitution with tho Individual, she writes of
tho time when:
Tho universities were congratulating them
rclvcs on tho production of certain curiosi
ties in tho shape of Latin plays, while a
man whn never ns student saw the lnsldo
of a university was writing Imperishable
poetry, leaving to his people an Instrument
to bound their in J story, from Its lowest note
to the top of Its compnss. For It Is tho
great Individuals, not Institutions that are
the bearers as they aro tho generators, of
Referring to an article by John Corbln,
comparing collego democrncy in England
nnd America, sho writes:
Mr. Corbln acknowledges some surpriso
at finding Oxford moro "democratic than
any American university." He naively over
looks tho fact that this Is like tho democracy
of tho millionaires' club, whore tho ult de
mands It be nt least assumed that every
body controls six ciphers.
An article on "Acndemlc Freedom" (2) has
an attractive autobiographical candor nnd
sincerity, which perhaps borrows courago
from being unsigned. It traces tho growth in
scholastic freedom, since 20 years ago, when:
I began llfo ns a college professor, equip
ped with a Phi Beta Kappa key, a doctor's
degree and a very solid, respectable habit
of conservatism. Socialism was then a men
acing, blood-red specter that had grown to
enormous dimensions In distant Germany.
Today It Is a semlrospectable and wholly
dull polltlcnl party In our own United States.
I am In conitant contact with Hb members.
From my present viowpolnt they seem to
havo tho true old-time academic typo of
mind, Its respect for authority, Its lack of
Imagination, its wholly mechanical processes
of thought. And I note with surprise that
they are not nearly so inclined to give a
hearing to tho I. W. W. as somo of my own
more yellow colleagues.
It does not seem to mo that there will be
much heresy-hunting In tho open. Large
and established Institutions nro too well ad
vised to go far In this direction. The recent
conflict at the University of Pennsylvania
is highly significant. What looked like a de
termined raid upon certain teacher in
Wharton School of that institution collapsed
almost instantly under a return flre of pub
licity. On Spooning Soup
Of threo articles on educational subjects In
tho new Unpopular Review, "Academo and
Mayfalr" (3) has the most characteristically
sophisticated tone, as Is appropriate to that
knowing and precocious young quarterly.
"Tho quostlon of tho social status of Ameri
can collego professors" Is tho theme of the
article, and the writer finds several causes
for Its variability:
Their professorship does not of itself create
social position. In this respect they differ
from let us say archbishops and generals.
It does not eject him. In this respect he
differs from let us say tailors and under
takers. Sooner or later ho and his wife
como up before the bar of society. Why are
some taken nnd others left? Tho reason
lies In subtle differences which the uniniti
ated never see and which to thoso In con
trol are of decisive Importance. Perhaps
the simplest way to put the matter Is to
say that socloty speaks a lingua franca
and thnt somo academio people speak It,
while others do not. It Is either a second
mother tongue or acquired by study, Somo
men go through life unperceptlve of aoolal
They lack the keen eyes of a boy from
the slums of Philadelphia, whose ambition
to speak good English waa discovered by a
charitable lady. He came to her house for
lessons, and one night he was Invited to
dinner. Later In the evening he Inter
rupted the lesson by a udden question.
"Do you spoon your soup out or Int" Her
wit baffled for the moment, rose to the
crisis, and she answered, "Out"
"I thought," he said, "I noticed you did."
A professor of history at Columbia, J, n.
Robinson, Is peculiarly fitted to wrlto "An
Explanation of the German Point of View"
(4), having taken a doctor's degree In Ger
many and made a special study of their his
tory. He gives n picturesque glimpse of
Hneckel. Ho writes:
Lt In October I found myself In an
humble Inn at Jena, and aa I was waiting
for my sandwich and seldel of beer, I ploked
up a local newspaper. It contained a lead
ing article on "England's Blood-guiltiness
In the World War," by one of the chief
light in the University of Jena, Ernest
Haeckel. The article brought up a vision of
the distinguished biologist as I had seen him
lecturing years before, looking in his lab
oratory apron like an uncommonly gifted
shoemaker. I recalled the hubbub that hi
"Natural History of Creation" produced;
how theologians had contended that man,
with hi divine reason, could never hava
sprung from an obscene monkey, Haeckel'a
attitude toward the war Interested me. I
waa shocked to aee that 60 years of exacting
scientific research and reflection had left
Haeckel as ready a victim of emotional
logic a tho humblest reservist

A deeply significant find progressive mrt
wrinkle tn teaohlng Is described in An article
on "Solentlno Business" (6), by Melvln T.
Copeland, which deals with tho work of th
Harvard Bureau of Business Research.
Established In 1811, by the Graduate School
of Business Administration of Harvard "Uni
versity to gather facts about business for
purposes of Instruction. Market distribution
was the first field, nnd the bureau concen
trated Its work at first on the marketing
of n ilngle commodity shoes. A similar
study of tho retail grocery trade was com
menced In W14. In order to Jearn the exact
costs of store operation, It early bocame ap
parent that rt uniform accounting system
was necessary, Mnny retailers were" keep
ing no book at all.
The Harvard System of Account for Shoe
Retnllers was given to tho trade In 1011
It has already been adopted by several hun
dred shoo stores and has become the stand
ard of the trade. Tho results of this re
search, however, hro of greater Value to the
retailers than the accounting system Itself.
Tho retailer hitherto has had no standard
for comparison. The shoe retailer, for
example, has had no means of knowing
that he ought not to spend more than 8
por cent of Ills not sales for sole force.
Blmllarly, he could not know whothcr or not
his rout expense was relatively too high,
Bv working out actual trade standard from
the detailed figures collected upon a uniform
basis from a largo number of store, this
research enables a retailer to know where
he ought to stand. Tho Information from
individual stores Is, of course, kept strictly
confidential; only tho summaries for largo
groups of stores aro published. The univer
sity as n permanent, trusted and non-competing
third party, has a particularly
