Critics delight to dwell upon the alleged stereotyped form of modern education. They deplore the lack of "contact" of college courses with the current life of the time, saying that there is need of a keener recognition of the changing effect of world events on the subject-matter. While any drastically revolutionary remedy for such deficiency must be looked on with suspicion, a plan suggests itself which is encouraging in its simplicity. The plan is to interpolate the regular lectures or class-room discussion in such subjects as government or economics with timely discourses on important world problems. How many interested students of finance must there be who would desire an analytical lecture on the intricacies and potentialities of the proposed International Bank which is now engaging the minds of the financial giants of the world at Paris; how many close followers of international relations would enjoy an enlightening discourse on the underlying causes and conditions of the current Mexican disturbance. So, important world events, but sketchily I learned from newspaper reports, might well be treated from professional rostrums. --Cornell Daily Sun.
