Livingston Farrand, President of Cornell UTi- versity, in an address at a dinner i his honor at the Lotos Club, in New York, last week called for a re-as- sessment of the entire point of view' toward education. Drift From the Moral Because the supreme danger of the world lay in the tendency to drift away from moral and intellectual moorings, said Dr. Farrand, there has been no time since history was re- corded when the world was so much in need of the recognition o:f certain fundamental principles. "The highest purpose and privilege of the university and the college is to do what it can by the best means at its disposal to turn out citizens ca- pable of simple and sound reasoning and thinking," he continued. War's Reaction The reaction of the war has brought the world to such a state of confusion that the way out does not appear, said Dr. Farrand. "We are seeing a world that seems to be guid- ed by prejudice and not by reasoned conviction," he added. Deplores Lack of Reason It did not matter what tile thought of the country dealt in, he said, whether it was the Eighteenth Amend- ment, sumptuary laws or other mat- ters, the tendency seemed to be for people to express themselves in their laws by means of their prejudices and not their reasoned conviction. In a recent trip through the West, he said, he found the State Legislatures deal- ing almost invariably in restrictions of one sort and another on human liberty and the freedom of the in- dividual. Expression of Prejudice In Oklahoma they were discussing whether to nmke it H misdemeanor to teach evolution in the schools. In Oregon a law was passed forbidding a person to send a ehihl to other than the public schools. In Washington they were discussing punishment for failure to read the Bible in the schools and in Iowa the question troubling the people was whether sheets in hotel beds shouht be 6 or 7 feet long. The whole tendency of leg- islation seemed to be an expression of prejudice, he said. Such restrictive legislation depress- ed him, said Dr. Farrand, and such a condition made it necessary to re- value what it was that education was "driving at." Wand Leaders "Of course we hope to see the uni- versities turn out men who are com- petent to practise their profession and to engage in their business, but above all what we have got to recog- nize as the chief aim in education is turning out men who shall be able and ready to take their place in this democracy of ours and lead their lives guided by reason and not preju- dice." Would Train Judgment It was wrong, Dr. Farrand argued to continue any longer in the idea I that education was for training men I technically so that they might attain I emience in their particular field./ The idea that education could turn j out engineers or architects was all wrong, as the best that education could do was to turn out individuals ready to become engineers and archi- tects. What was needed, lie said, was a technical training with a funda- mental background so that when the individual left school he might be- come a man of sound judgment, who could reason on sound premises. Men needed to recognize the indis- putable importance of fundamental training on rumple lines, he said. What educators were looking forward to was not so much a mass of in- formation as it was to a system of clear thinking. College Tests The question of the increasing cost of education was a staggering one, he sfiid, pointing out that the average course at Cornell cost the college $5,000 a year, and the student $250, while some courses cost $1,000 and more. He touched upon the recent suggestions for the limitation of the number of students, and said that iu this field the educators still were groping. The old classical tests were faulty, he added., and the modern psychological tests admittedly experi- mental. When a college excluded all those who failed to pass the written tests, it was excluding some men who made the best stuff for citizenship, he add- ed, pointing out that Ulysses S. Grant was far from the head of his class at West Point, but 'was called to tile task of leading the Union armies after his fellow classmates with more brilliant records had failed. THE GUARDIAN, SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1923 RECENT EXPULSION OF MSGR: FILIPPI ACTED ON IN ROME (N. C. W. C. Special Cahle) Rome, March 26.--Tile Congrega- tion of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical affairs has complete(t its investiga- lion of the recent expulsion of Msgr. Ernesto Filippi, former Apostolic Delegate to Mexico, from that coun- try. Msgr. Filippi's conduct, accord- ing to tile findings (if the congrega- tion, was irreproachable on that oc- casion. It is reported that he will soon be tendered a new appointnent, which will be in the nature of a pro- motion and will serve as an indica- tion of approval of his conduct in the Mexican affair. CALDEY MONKS END FIRST DECADE AS SONS OF THE CHURCH (By N. C. \\;V.

The Tablet Editor Very Ill James Milburn, editor of The Tab- let, one of England's most widely cir- culated Catholic weekly papers, has been renmved to a Catholic hospital for a serious operation, and little hope is expressed for his recovery. Mr. Milburn has been associated with The Tablet for twenty-eight years and was made editor-in-chief in 1920. He is in his sixty-third year. Canon'-- Barry Injured Canon William Barry, of 1,earning- ton, one of the most prominent Cath- olic literary men of England, was knocked down by a motorcycle last week and sustained a fractured thigh. Although he is in his seventy-sixth year, there is every hope for his re- covery.

BIRTHDAY OF PATRIARCH The largest, or at least one of the largest birthday cakes ever baked will be built for the oldest member of the Knights of Columbus, Patrick Mur- phy of Monument, Colorado, accord- ing to word received at K. of C. na- tional headquarters. Mr. Murphy will celebrate his 102nd birthday during Easter week and the Knights of Col- orado Springs and other towns will hold a large gathering in honor of the patriarch. The birthday cake will be more than four feet in diameter to provide standing room for the' 102 candles that will mark off Mr. Mur- phy's age. Patrick Murphy was one of the earliest pioneers in the Colo- rado country. He has been a farmer all his life. subjects residing in the United States, as it is primarily national.

Every advance in spiritual life has its corresponding dangers; every step that we rise nearer God anti,eases the depth of the gulf into which we may with the Catholic Cl'mrch and the Apostolic See of llome.

While the monks still occupy their old home, the nuns have established themselves in a new house, the historic home of the an- cient Catholic family of the Moystyns, which is now known as Talacre Ab- bey. The monks of Caldey have retained their independence, being subject to the oversight of the diocesan Bishop. The convert nuns, on the other hand, elected for affiliation with the Eng- lish Benedictine Congregation, and at a Chapter in 1921 were elected by the Benedictines into full membership of the English Congregation. 'BOLSHEVIST PLANS UNCHANGED, BELIEF AT THE CAPITOL (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Washington, D. C., March 26.--Sec- retary Hughes' frank statement re- iterating the American attitude to- ward Russia has cleared the air of much of the false sentimentality that exists in the United States with ref- erence to the government of that un- fortunate country. Most of this sen- timentality springs from the belief that the communist government of Moscow has been misjudged, that it has seen the error of its way and has reformed. The United States government has received no information to justify such a-conclusion. On the contrary the Russian leaders have not aban- doned the idea of a world revolution. We have the word of Trotzky who, addressing the congress of Russian Communist Youths last October, said: "That means, comrades, that revolu- tion is coming in Europe as well as in America, systematically, step by step, stubbornly and with gnashing of teeth in both camps. It will be long, protracted, cruel and sanguinary." i L I -- --- i Haler & Hornibrook VINTILATING AND ALL KINDS OF ROOFING i lONI MAIN 1q$$ i i iJ i . _ I A Iombstone of Beauty always exprmes to the passer-by  levi  wt which it wu selected.
