                                  0    years ago when a tiny band of stubborn
men determined to
                                       establish a school or college in the
forbidding New England
                                  *    wilderness. From that single institution,
later to be named
                                       Harvard, the United States has moved
to a proliferation of
                                  *    colleges and universities. . . Is
there any unity in this di-
                                       versity? Is there any entity which
all alumni have shared,
                                  *    to -which they all owe allegiance,
by which they all have been
                                       served, to which they all can offer
aid and support?

Next month, a special Wisconsin Alumnus supplement,
Moonshooter, will view the intricate pattern of
higher education as it exists in America today
Why do we maintain such a wide variety of
higher education opportunities in the U.S.?
What is proper role of universities and col-
leges? Should they be "maids-of-all-work"?
Education of quality and education for quan-
tity? Are the two mutually exclusive or not?
What can be done to attract good teachers?
What makes a good college teacher, anyway?
What is effect of an ever-increasing body of
knowledge on curricula, teaching technique?
