  According to a survey,which was based on the responses of over 1800,000 students,today's traditional-age college freshmen are "more materialistic and less altruistic" than at any time in the 17 years of the poll.

  Not surprising in thes hard times,the student's major objective " is to be financially well off. Less important than ever is developing a meaningful philosophy of life." It follows then that today the most popular course is not literature or history but accounting.

  Interest in teaching ,social service and the " altruistic" fields is at a low. On the other hand, enrolment in businness programs,engineering and computer science is way up.

  While it's true that we all need a career, it is equally true that our civilization has accumulated an incredible amout of knowledge in fields far removed from our own and that we are better for our understanding of thes other contributions - be they scientific or artistic.It is equally true that, in studying the diverse wisdom of others,we learn how to think.More important, perhaps,education teaches us to see the connections between things,as well as to see beyond our immediate needs.

  Weekly we read of unions who went on strike for higher wages,only to drive their employer out of bussiness.No company;no job.How shortsighted in the log run!

  But the most important argument for a broad education is that in studying the accumulated wisdom of the ages,we improve our moral sense.
