Excerpt from Hennecke's Art Studies

We know we are right in our general principles. The best expert opinion coincides with the increasing convie tion of the community, that the traditional curriculum of the schools needs to be essentially modified, through the introduction of studies and exercises which shall train eye and hand which shall cultivate the perceptive falculties, so long and grievously neglected; which shall create a respect for manual skill and dexterity, and for taste in design which shall afford scope and play for the creative and constructive instinct. Just what these studies and exercises shall be, in character and order of succession, is to be determined by experiment rather than by forecast. The question is one which requires to be worked out, rather than to be thought out The most that is likely to be done in the immediate present will not be more than is needed to accumulate the experience, which shall de termine the direction which our efforts in this interest shall ultimately take.

For one, I believe that the introduction of the new studies and exercises which we are advocating will not prove a mere addition to the work of the school or college. I believe it will also profoundly modify the instruction given within the traditional line. Boys and young men who have learned to observe for themselves, to acquire knowledge at first hand, to give effect to their purposes, and a form to their ideas who have been accustomed to impose their will upon matter, and to make it take shape to suit their intellectual conceptions; who know how to project, to plan, to execute will have little patience with much that makes up the traditional curriculum. They will demand to be brought face to face with facts. They will insist upon going to the bottom of any matter they have to deal with. That genuine intellectual honesty, which is the first fruit of the objective study to concrete things, will make them scorn to defend, in dialectical and rhetorical practice, theses which thev do not thoroughly believe. They will grudge every hour spent in memoriz ing matters for which they can at any time resort to the gazetteer or cyclopedia. It will be hard to impose on such students with sounding names, deceive them with sophis tries, or bear them down by authority. They will care much for principles little for the manner in which these may be dressed up for effect, or tricked out for public admiration. - Gca. Flmwis A. Walker, President of Massa chusetts Institute of Technology.
