That colleges are changing rapidly to meet new
conditions is obvious, but it, is difficult to find a
single principal which -will serve either as a guide
or as a description. Prof. Walter Libby, of North
western University, w riting in the Popular Science
Monthly, uses the term "socialization," and it will
fit many of the phenomena, and also sums up the
programme of many educational reformers. Prof.
Libby puts it: "The social test of college culture
would suggest many changes in the content and
method of college courses. The spirit of pedantry,
to which all academic life is liable at times to fall
victim, would be rectified by the challenge, 'What
is the social value and import of this ?' "
The principle is .good as far as it goes, but is
there not some danger of pressing it too far, of
applying it where it has no proper application?
Readers of Tourguenieff will remember the one
ideaed social fanatic in "Fathers and Sons," who
is scornfully derisive of a middle-aged man who
can find pleasure in music when society needs to
be reformed. Prof. Libby has a touch of the same
rigor, and denounces the dilettante pursuit of arts
and foreign languages: "In the ears of maturity
the cultivation of these interests has something of
the pathos of arrested development recurring to the
styles and ideals of the teens." But he refers to
the age of society rather than of the individual,
and his logic would seen to imply that study must
progressively deal with "the betterment of the hu
man race" rather than with the cultivation of the
The difficulty with this theory, which has much
currency just now, is that it defeats itself. Why
is the human race to be bettered? It is to be bet
tered in order to enable its indi idual units to have
more leisure and means to gratify its higher de
sires. In short, the social programme is useful only
as it benefits individuals. Prof. Libby is able to
find a place in his scheme for language study.
Translations of scientific books from French, Ger
man, Italian, Spanish, and other languages are
needed: "With, let us say, 500 students in French,
COO in German, and a proportionate number in the
other foreign languages, something of social value
could surely be done." Surely, though the diffi
culty might come in publishing rather than in
translating; it is not easy to find a market for for
eign books unless of uncommon celebrity. Why?
The reason is plain a lack of widely diffused in
Jn the .admirable enthusiasm for helping others,
we must not let go of self-help. The fiber of a
generation must depend on the functioning of in
dividual brains, and it is always perilously easy to
find some excuse for evading "high thinking." It
does not "pay," says the materialist; it is "anti
social," says the philanthropist culture suffers be
tween two fires.
Regard for the mass is excellent and will grow,
but it must not be allowed to impair the develop
ment of the units that make up the mass. The
literary man who keeps his work up to the highest
intellectual level is benefiting society, and so is the
professional man or merchant or workingman who
who disciplines himself like Benjamin Franklin and
cultivates his mind and taste.
Responsibility to society is important, but
aguc; self-culture is one phase of it, and the man
who picks up a good book when it would be easier
to slump into literary slop is doing his modest part.
As men think in their hearts so is society.

Some unwlBO economise In ,the Post-office
Department has never Jheard of the
saying that "parsimony is !r0economy."
nor jet of tho saying that trie cost of
a sprat Is well Invested In the capture
of a whale. This economist haa turned
his powerful mind in the direction of
cheapening the cost of carrying and de
livering registered letters. The registra
tion of letters In the manner In which
It was Introduced ana for a long Urn
administered was a considerable public
convenience. It was very often worth
tho while of the sender of a letter to
pay 8 cents in order to secure the bq
knowledgment of the person to whom It
was addressed that It had been deliv
ered to him. This was the point of the
registration in nine cases out of ten.
That it was seen by the department so
to be Is shown by tho adverUsements
the department Issued exhorting the
public to register valuable letters and
parcels: "It brings you a receipt." The
fee nas, of course, much greater than
tho cost of the aervice. and mitt h.i.
