Frills Brief Courses
Needed Subjects Ure
By WILUAM P. DUNI
UR colleges, says Herbert Spencer, cater to the ornamental
O rather than to the useful in knowledge. And many are doubt
ing if the old standbys and favorite course are really worth F
while-or rather if the time could not better be spent on other
subjects. There are many who make the same criticism of
our public schools.
This is an age, we are told, of specialization. -The work
man of the middle ages, of the great guilds wad a journeyman 1
until he had learned all of his trade, even to, the making of
the tools required in that trade. Today thoMe trades. have
been divided and subdivided and each subdivisi6on eotlat te- a tir'W
itself. The professional man narrows himself to one branch of his lro
feesion and becomes an expert.
It is obviously impossible to acquire even a superficial knowledge of
all the arts and sciences of today during one lifetime. However, the next
beat thing to possessing information on any subject is to know where to
locate that information when you want it. To be sure, we have encyclo
pedias with their interesting, though sketchy, information, to which we
may refer. But is it hnot a good idea to have in our schools a course in
indexes of authorities and sources of information? That is, instead of
cramming our heads full of facts and knowledge of the different arts and '
sciences, this course would present us with the keys of the different storage P
warehouses, where this merchandise is kept.
Instead of a "commit to memory" course, why not merely a skeleton C
course on broad general lines, with a knowledge of where to go to All in i
the details. A too great knowledge of details often means a wrong per
spective. With a broad foundation well laid in our school life, and a
knowledge of where to go to find the materials needed to complete the
structure, we could take up the work at any time in subsequent life and p
carry it on intelligently. The public library would then become the eom- *
plement of our school system. J .111
It would seem that we have already entered mn this index course in 1
our public schools. The knowledge given there of botany, physiology,
Greek and Ioman history, poetry, literature, languages, etc., is not very N.
far reaching. But it is sufficient to act as an introduction to those fields
and as a stimulus for wider and deeper knowledge of the subjects.
I believe, therefore, that too many subjects are not, taught in our
public schools. It is the one chance that most of the pupils will have C
of learning something of these subjects, to get even a bird's-eye view of
those green pastures of knowledge. Reading 'riting and 'rithmetie we so
shall have with us always. We shall have ample opportunity during our u
lifetime to improve in all three lines. Our daily newspaper will supply o
the reading, our everyday business, or household econmny the arithmetic,
and,-s for spelling, the phonetic, but erroneous, spelling of tedsy may
be the rule tomorrow. But the so-called "frills" of education-these are a
luxury which, perhaps, were undreamed of but for oar public school intro
Let us remind those who object to aught but the tes.'K being
taught in our public schools that these brief courses @a various subjects
may be the seed falling on fertile soil. They may prodace in young minds 8a
a desire to know more, and may yield fruit from soil that otherwise were
sterile. The seed planted may blos- to
sorm into flowers to cheer. an other
wise monotonous life. By all means a
let us have the frills. t

as the real beadi of the company are con

worked side by side for thirty-five years in the employ of this railrod I
and who are now receiving the munificent salary of $80 a month.. Had
they started with a smaller house either of them might haw been inde
pendent by now. But even had they attempted something else after fivre
or ten years of railroad life they probably would have had to eaturn to
the road again on account of their lack of experience in other lines.
In my opinion a young nman ought to start in with a small but grow
ing firm and learn the business from A to Z and stick to that firm
until he becomes t right hand man of his employ&. It would be well
to choose a field where there is room for advancement sad not get con
