The current Nation contains a well-considered editorial, upon "Yale and Harvard," suggested by the recent reports of Presidents Porter and Eliot, which we commend to the attention of all college men. The writer compares the Yale system to the great schools of England, Eton and Rugby, and finds the Harvard theory to be an approximation to the type of the European university. Commenting upon the disadvantages of the method of strict regulations and supervision imposed upon students at Yale, he says: "No efficient seat of learning can, with any endowment which any American college now possesses or hopes to possess, undertake anything approaching to parental care of the students. . . . The result [of ceasing to attempt this] will be greater care in the selection of boys for college education. It will cease to be a matter of course to send boys to college whenever the father can afford it. Boys who have no strong love of study, and whose self-control is defective, will not be sent there."
