Higlier Education Moves Tow
Mass Piodutfion
An important .tendency that is reaching into
American education just as it has already reached
into business has been brought temporarily into
the spot light.
The President of the Carnegie Corporation of
New York, Dr. Frederick P. Keppel, in his annual
report has said this:
"There are in the United States far more uni
versities, colleges, and other operating institutions,
°find far more worthy organizations for voluntary
.4uurposes than the nation can possibly afford. -1.12
the year to come many of these are bound to dis
appear, and one 'of the most difficult duties that
'face the foundation is that of so directing its
:grants that its influence will be directed toward.
the survival of the fittest."
There is much more of importance that Dr.
Eleppel said about . the conduct of the foundation
but it is on these points that much future thinking
in regard to education will turn:
That there are now more educational institu
tions than. the nation can afford; and the conclu
11.on that, therefore, efforts must be directed to
ward effecting the survival of the fittest.
This long run tendency seems to be the neces
i4ary result of free competition in industry that
jlovernment has felt it necessary to intercede. It
is the same tendency that in business has brought
mass production, cheap production, and an Ameri
can standard of living that is the highest in the
at which learning is concentrated not
for the few but for the many are not undesirable.
The falling off in the number of colleges and uni
versities that Dr. Keppel forsees does not mean
that fewer Americans are going to be educated.
We have learned the. lesson of industry and bave
long been concentrating our education with most
.satisfactory results. Our 20 or so biggest univer
ities can offer each student better facilities at
less cost than any unendowed small college can
Lope to do.
The change is not painless. It hurts to trade the
ivy tower for the skyscraper, and the class light
lor a radio debate, but we are 'doing it already.
Few are the campuses on which anyone can now
onatch Teddy Roosevelt's proud boast That he
'knew every student at Harvard by his first name.
Vot many of us give more than a passing tear for.
the' loss.
What we lose in personal contact and so-called
zchool spirit we have more than made up. We
'have facilities only dreamed of in Teddy noose
velfs day. Where once only a few students could
meet the leading thinkers of the day, there are
thousands in their place.
The saving grace of all is That through the med
ium of schools, departments, and divisions we
'have learned how to individualize the mass pro
duction system te suit the needs of education.
The College Cracks Down?
It has been suggested that the College,
than fine all of the 500 or so violaters of the , cuit
f;ne rule, should single out only a few and make
examples of them. The Collegian canna under
.;:Land this. It cannot understand why the Col-
Jege, which apparently considers cuts before and
