FEBRUARY 17. 1950 ROLLINS SANDSPUR » Rollins at the Mid-Century Mark Rollins CcUege has developed, around the small class Conference System, an educational plan ±hat induces students to le professcrs to teach. Its small, intimate campus provides a friendly atmosphere in which the 6C0 sludsntE snd 70 irstruciorE? erjoy studying together. The Mediterranean Villa is the motif carried out in the architecture of the Rollins Campus. Dormitories, class buildings, and administrative buildings blend together among mossy oaks. Southern pines, and tropical palms. Lake Virginia bounds the C2mpus, affording excellent opportunities for boating, swimming, and water sport;. Congenial friendships be¬ tween students and profe give Rollins students sn op¬ portunity io get to kn another better. Idess through friendships play an integral part of an education in the Rollins family. For it is be¬ lieved that the friendly air of the campus aids one to live his education, as well as to utilize it practically.

"Industry itself is the place in which g should learn how to work in industry," said Hutchins. "I stand squarely in the camp of those who would give all young Americans thai balanced educa¬ tion required for the effective goverance of a democracy," said Wagner. This statement was closely paralleled by that of Hutchins many-j when he said, "We should give every student the education that is appropriate to free men or we should abandon universal suf- g Bacheller In New York EUie Misehuck hard at work in the Publicity Office.

Rusly Davis getting the straight dope from Joe Popeck Joe Popeck's Foresight Leads To Visual Aids Convinced that visual educa¬ tion is a vital part of progressive education, student Joe Popeck organized the Visual Aids Depart¬ ment in May, 1949. This depart¬ ment is unique in that it is prob¬ ably the only Visual Aid Depart¬ ment of any college or university organized and managed by stu¬ dents. President Wagner, Dean Stone, and several professors, by their enthusiasm for the program assisted in the initial organization. Rusty Davis has been appoint¬ ed secretary of the new Student; Committee.

Scott Col¬ in Feb. 24 ; fourteen Allaying any fears that Rollins might be in for a dose of Chicago's ¦'peculiar brand of educational medicine," Hutchins said, "Paul Wagner was one of my students, but a very independent one. He IS a stalwart and original man." Speakmg on the problems of to¬ day and the colleges place in their solution Hutchins stated, "The great problems of our time are the right use of leisure. It is not the object of a college to make its students good, because the college cannot do it. The object of the educational system is to supply (intellectual) power. If the edu¬ cational institution does not dis¬ charge this power it will not be discharged." Giving his opinion on big-iime college sports, Hutchins stated. 'Big time, industrial football, ihe symbol of the non-educational aspects of educational institutions, confuses the public mind about what education is and contains the elements of injustice, hypoc- racy, and fraud." Both college heads attacked the educational status quo, saying, "Colleges of tomorrow must make basic and far reaching changes in educational methodology." President Wagner pointed out the need for group thinking as the solution fer solving the world's problems. And he emphasized ths need for this group thinking in the colleges. "Man's lack oi ability to communicate on impor¬ tant and mutually significant problems has made his progress uncertain. Students must learn the art of thinking to¬ gether." Looking to the future the presi¬ dent sees the need for a faith in democracy and in each other.
