One would suppose that enough good stationery had been expended on the question, "Does a college education fit a man for business pursuits?" Yet the January Lippincott sees fit to grapple with this question again and without regard to fact or logic settles it in the negative. It would be pardonable if the writer of the article referred to was himself one of those who had never received the benefits of a college training. But it is inexplicable when it is known that he is an M. A. There are three points which it is necessary to prove before we can be made to see that college training is not beneficial - first, that the proportion of college graduates who achieve distinction is less than the proportion who achieve the distinction without the benefits of a college education; second, that in any given position a college graduate is worse off than a man who has never been to college; third, that the men who are graduated, from college are worse off at the end of a term of years than they would have been had they never gone to college. We do not think that any one of these three propositions can be proved.
