Count Lerchenfeld, former Premier of Bavaria, described the fundamental necessities of education at a luncheon at the Liberal Club yesterday.
He stated that the mission of education was to develop the interrelationship or body and mind. In recent years, he said, the rapid growth of science had meant the introduction of an increased amount of material knowledge in school. Scientific evolution had developed so fast that men's minds have been overwhelmed. Education must in this critical situation combine in men the faculty of doing with a sense of understanding of those things which are being accomplished. The mind must be developed until it can grasp the meaning of phenomena about it.
