President Lowell will leave for New Haven today, where he will attend the twenty-seventh annual conference of the Association of American Universities, which is held at Yale University this year and will continue until Saturday. More than 60 delegates are expected to attend.
Discussion of the common problems of graduate schools will be the most important portion of the business of the conference. At the first meeting on Thursday Dean Cross of Yale will speak on "The Two Functions of the Graduate Schools"; Professor Leon B. Pickerson of Dartmouth College will talk on "The Liberal College and Vocationalism"; and Dean Carl E. Seashore of the State University of Iowa will lecture on "The Placement Examination as a means of discovering and Motivating the Future Scholar Early." Delegates at the conference will be guests at the Yale-Army game on Saturday.
