Excerpt from Library of Princeton Univeresity

Still another reason for the growth of technical courses is to be found in the prevalent belief that they supply first class training, and that they turn out men who are efficient. The call of the world to-day is for efficient men. Hard headed, practical business managers see the advantage of men who have learned to do things, and to do things exactly. These technical courses are severe, and they train men to work hard at difficult tasks. They deal largely with mathe matics and mathematical sciences, and work in these lines trains to precision and exactness. These are qualities that appeal to the man in the office and the shop, more than those developed by the broader and more liberal culture of the regular college. And it must also be confessed that there is truth in the charge, that the college, with its elective sys tem, no longer gives the training that it once did. It gives breadth, it gives culture, it affords a splendid opportunity to the serious student who knows what he wants, but it has not in all cases forced the careless and unwilling student to work. And after all work is what really trains.
