"Ono of the greatest evils of the
American system of education, ifVe
may be said to have a system, is the
large number of children who finish
their1 schooling at the age of 14," is

Eliot of Harvard university, who is
now In Chicago delivering a series of
Addresses on university administration
"The greatest failure of our system,'
he continued, "is the limited period of
child education. It is .the fashion now
to say that our schools train for.lh'e
and not lor college, t But what is need
