The coach who has gov­ erned the destinies of the swimming and polo teams since there have been such teams at Chicago has left. A new man has taken his place and the outcome is in the balance. Coach Knudson made the most out of the material he had each year and was, on the whole. decidedly successful. Coach J. H. \Vhite is doubtless a -capable man. but it is up to every .rnan in the University with the faint­ -est chance 'of being of use to the polo or swimming teams to turn out and show the new man what they are made of.

TRACK· SQUADS TO HAVE MEETINGS TODAY IN GYM Varsity and Freshman Athletes to Be Addressed by Director Stagg This Afternoon. The Varsity and Freshman track squads will have meetings today to line up the men and talk over the prospects of the year. The Varsity candidates will meet in the Varsity room. Bartlett gymnasium, at 4:15, and the Freshmen will meet at 4:45 in the Freshman room. Director Stagg will gin' both squads a long talk, but will center his attention mostly en the older men. It will be pretty difficult to line the Freshman squad up. as there are so many men who are good in two or three events. At present most of the work is be­ ing put on the Varsity dash men. Davenport .has been practicing at starting for the last .veek and is mak­ ing a good showing. Crawley came out -last night for the first time this season and showed good form in lim­ bering up. Up to date Baird has spent his time in the sprints and in the quarter-mile. Next week he ex­ pects to get down to hard training for t l-e half and the mile. The most promising of the Fresh­ men who have been out so far this year are Donovan, Springer, Wilson, Kuh and Whiting. Donovan is a dis­ tance runner and is especially good in the half and the mile. He won the mile in the Interscholastic last June and 'came second in the half. Spring­ er is training for the fifty-yard dash. and is also good in the shot-put. Wil­ son was captain of last year's cham­ pionship University High track team, which won the Interscholastic. He is good in the fifty, the hurdles and the shot-put. Kuh is also from Uni­ versity High. His specialty is the high hurdles and the quarter-mile. Whiting is training for the half-mile.

DEEATERS WORK HARD FOR DUAL CLASH JANUARY 21 Cut Short Vacation to Prepare for Michigan and Northwestern­ Meet Three Times Weekly. The l'ni\ er sity debaters are at present ill the midst of some of the hardest work the Varsity representa­ tives have ever done in preparation for the annual contests with Michi­ gan and Northwestern, which take place j auuary 21, two wee�s from Fridav. The members of the team who live out of town cut their vaca­ tions short in order to return to work with their colf cagues . J U5t before the holidays a formal practice debate was held. .\loUltOll, who was on the '07 team. and O'Don .. nell and Hoover of last year's team took the negut ive against the team which will uphold the affirmative for Chicago this year. These men and Eisendrath, a former debater. have given the team a great dea.l of as­ sistance. �Ir. H. P. Chandler, for­ mer coach of the debating teams, has also helped. The old men have been able to show the newer men faults in' their form of delivery and in their cases. The teams are meeting now regu- larly three times a week. but .\lcElroy said yesterday that. begm­ ning soon. there would be four prac­ tice debates a week. The teams meet each other in formal debates. The main speeches are practically com­ pleted, and the work now is on form and rebuttal. Advertise in the Maroon.

"., MAKERS PEAllODY & Co. Barrett H. Clark Sends Interesting Letter on French Universities. Barrett H. Clark, ex-'12. now study­ ing at Sorbonne, France, has writ­ ten to The Daily Maroon the follow­ ing article on his impressions in France. Clark was prominent while here, having taken part in the Dra­ matic club and other organizations. "From time to time there appears in these columns mention of t he Sor­ bonne, in connection with lectures or University students or a new book. To a great number of students the word Sorbonne calls up little but the idea of some school for higher learn­ ing in Paris. I t is my purpose to say a few words regarding one of the most important institutions of learn­ ing in the world. "The Sorbonne takes its name from a certain Robert de Sorbon, an eccle­ siastic at the court of Saint Louis; he founded a sort of boarding school or hostel for poor theological students in 1253. I t was not long before the hotel for poor theological students gians acquired a great reputation for learning and students, as well as great scholars, flocked to it. A few years later it was graced by the name of the Sorbonne, which has been re­ tained up to the present day. I twas in this way that a large section of Paris on the "Rive gauche" became the Latin Quarter, because within its bounds Latin was the spoken and uni­ versal language. The Sorbonne has been a great factor in religion and maintained through many centuries the severest of Catholic standards. In the feverish period of the Revolution it was abolished. But in 1808 it was made the head of the University of France. In 1896 it became once more . the University of Paris. Properly speaking, however, the University of Paris comprises five "facultes"-let­ ters, science law, medicine and fine arts. Now the Sorbonne comprises only the faculties of letters and sci­ ence. • "There is-no exact parallel between the French and American educational systems. In France. however, there is an institution called the "lycee" or "college," which combines our high school work with that of the first two years in our colleges and univer­ sities. It is in these that what we understand as "college life" is expe­ rienced. There are sometimes tennis teams, less often rugby teams. and this is nearly all the athletics that are known in French colleges. There are, of course, clubs, musical and lit­ erary, but they are exceptions. The student receives on graduation from the "lycee" a "baccalaureat," which, needless to say, is not equivalent to our degree of the same name. This he usually receives at about 18 or 19 years of age. It gives him entrance to one of the universities, which cor­ respond to our senior colleges and graduate schools. The methods of teaching are' radically different. The student goes to the office. pays 30 francs ($6) and gets his course cards. and that it all. He may take as many courses as he chooses, and whatever he Iikcs, He does not have to at­ tend classes. nor hand in papers. nor answer questions. but-he must pase examinations. which are held annual­ ly: that is his sole requirement. It may seem peculiar that the fees arc so small, but one must remember that most institutions of the kind arc sup­ ported by the state; indeed the gov­ ernment has its hand in everything. According to this arrangement the student may take his degree when he wishes. The system for degrees is much the same as in America. The student writes a th('sis. hut is oblig('d to defend it oral1y be­ fore all the prof('ssors who haye taught him. �'aster's d('grc('s are ginn in various suhjects. hut there is nothing corresponding to th(' Amer­ ican doctor of philosophy. Th('re arc. howe,·er. equiyalents. such as doctor of letters. doctor of scienc('. etc .• etc . "Of 'coll('ge life' in the Sorhonne there is none-no athletics. no duhs. no "spirit:' It is simply a larg(' in­ stitution of high('r l('arning. open to all. "'hethcr they wish d('grees or not."

"Chicago is dirty and ill kept in comparison 10 this clean and splen­ did city," he said. "But Chicago is ahead in a great many other things.

An interesting criticism of recent educational development is contained in an editorial printed in the current issue of the School Review. The writer .points out that two great force= influencing the secondary school-the elementary school from beneath and the college from above­ acting as the -"upper and nether mill stones." Of the college the article makes the following comment: "The college has undergone a great transformation. especially within the last quarter of a century. The move­ ment has been i� the direction of an unorganized and piecemeal enlarge­ ment of the curriculum with a con­ sequent loss of definiteness of" aim and method. There has been a ten­ tative formulation of an optimistic be­ lief that somehow enlarged freedom is an adequate substitute for the re­ sulting loss in definiteness. But even now this confidence begins to wane. It is idle to quarrel with the college because it would have its freedom to work out its problem. as the elemen­ tary school demanded and got its freedom. and as the secondary school longs for but does not get its free­ dom. This was a necessary stage in the march of progress." The NEW Cigarette of Quality Qualite Superfine EXCELLENT IN TASTE AND IIANUFACJlIRE BUTLER-BUTLER INC.

Here the 'hop' of the 'frat' house and the society lady's 'afternoon' are attempted, with the expenditure to be covered by sacri­ ficing some ordinary propriety of housekeeping. Xot yet does the American father treat daughter and son with financial impartiality; the 'woman's century' will be far ad­ vanced before fathers and husbands cease putting the question regarding the ten cents of yesterday . Housing Is Problem. "Xot unt il the question of residence has been much more wisely consid­ ered than hitherto will coeducation han' received a fair trial. State uni­ ver sit ies should provide houses for women students, where nice personal habits and the graces of social life can be fostered, and women of cul­ ture and social position should pre­ side over these. At Oxford and Cambridge. the halls for women are in the care of ladies of very high con­ nections in the social, political and literary world. It does not answer the question to say that a state gov­ ernment cannot afford such expendi­ ture; as soon as fathers and moth­ ers demand it. the appropriations "'ill he forthcoming. The creation of the office of dean of women is a begin­ ning of the needed reform. though prejudice has sometimes accorded scant courtesy to women's deans. Presi�ent �an Hise of the University of Wisconsin has expressed the wish that the young women in coeduca­ tional colleges might borrow an inde­ pendent social life from the colleges for women alone. With proper pro­ vision for residence and social over­ sight. they might do so." The Woman's College. I n the concluding paragraph the wr iter discusses the educational and social aspects of the woman's col­ lege, which, without a stronger re­ sistence than at present. will change into a new sort· of finishing school. "However, the social life of the woman's college is not altogether perfect. That such an institution is the best place for many girls is true. Nevertheless a close examination of the 'college life' there shows too great a leaning to the boarding school. The social side of the woman's college is threatening to overshadow the educa­ tional, if it has not already done so. Not long ago, a prominent . lady in one of our cities. herself . a college graduate and a person of fine schol­ arship. said to the writer: 'I wish my daughter to have the college life. but I do not care whether she learns anything from books or not.' " sides these the most modern facilities for the staff and librarians have been most amply provided for. The especially monumental and memorial features of the library are the main entrance hall and stairs lead­ ing to the Memorial reading room. These are treated in stone, the read­ ing room having large arched ends, which have spaces reserved for an appropriate mural decoration. The windows on each side are of the fin­ est Cothic tracery, and it is hoped that classes in the future will give fitting stained glass. Shepley, Rutan & Coolidge are the architects.
