Hutchins Predicts Atomic Boredom by John Astengro Reasserting that if we are not all killed by atomic bombs within the next few years we will be bored to death, Dr. Robert Maynard Hutchins, chancellor of the University of Chicago, elaborated on his ideas an hour after his arrival in Los Angeles yesterday. Chancellor Hutchins, who will lecture tonight on "The State of the Nation” in the Modern Forum series at Philharmonic auditorium, said that people must learn to think about important things. Asked how people learned to think about important things, he replied, “by ceasing to think about unimportant things such as football, which was abolished at the University of Chicago.” Obviously »juaous about directions and destjiations of the human race. Dr. Hutchin? ;sa*d that the greatest problem in the United States today is reaction and that the maintenance of peace is the most pressing international problem. Dr. Hutchins called vocational education a waste of time, claiming that technological changes are made so quickly that students are tauffht “by obsolescent teachers on obsolescent machines.” He advocated a national system of examinations on all levels and added that the federal government should financially assist all qualified students to obtain college educations. The “Great Books'* program of adult education which began in 1943 at the University of Chicago, has grown from a student body of 165 to one of 6000. according to Dr. Hutchins. Indianapolis, Detroit, and Cleveland now participate in the program, in which adults attend seminars to read great works and discuss practical applications of the authors’ ideas. If the world were to meet a disaster and Chancellor Hutchins could choose three literary works with which to begin civilization, he would select the bible. Aristotle's “Ethics and Politics.” and “Summa Theo-logica” by Thomas Aquinas. Handsome Chancellor Hutchins was asked if eastern universities were better than western ones. He replied negatively and. with a subtle look, added. “Universities are usually judged by the ability of their football teams, aren’t they? That surely would place western universities on top. And. of course, the University of Chicago wouldn't rate at all.” Sponsors List Various Events Of Homecoming All week—book display, Mudd hall. Rare book exhibit, French department.
