WHEREIN THE TROUBLE LIES.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The CRIMSON disagrees with the stand taken by Mr. May in his article on "Efficiency" printed elsewhere in this issue. He pleads for a college course giving more direct business training. The curriculum now, as we understand it, is aimed to fit men primarily for the business of living. It includes the broad general groundwork which can be secured only before a man plunges into the business of business; and in the end is infinitely more valuable to most men than a four years' training in purely practical things.

The trouble with many a new graduate who meets with difficulties in the business world, is not--we believe--a lack of business training, but a lack of the realization that he is a beginner in the school of the world as much as the Freshman is a beginner in a University.
