Excerpt from The Lehigh Quarterly, Vol. 1: April, 1891

Now in point of fact there are so many grades of capability and ability that a complication presents itself at the very outset, and mistaken judgments of men are the consequence. In a college or university the capable intelligence leads. That is what we test. We have less opportunity to test ability there. In life it is the able man we want. When we formulate and tabulate a course for the average man with reference to both these conditions, it would seem that we are holding back with a hand on his throat the superior intelligence, while we are trying to drag forward, by the throat also, the man less endowed by his Maker. In all class instruction this IS a difficulty which cannot be easily removed. I am in favor of a high standard, but I think the danger is rather of too high a standard, in our efforts to keep the average man thoroughly up to his work. At West Point, in the higher branches, the men who stand first are permitted to go farther in the science or study than their fellows. This is an example worthy of imita tion.
