Abstract

Social science is now studied in all colleges and universities. Professors who have qualified themselves by years of post-graduate work both at home and abroad show pupils how to study history in a topical manner. Statistics, ancient and modern, are compared. Large and well stocked libraries are in demand. Public documents, reports of State institutions, both charitable and penal, are examined. The data desired are compiled and used. Inter-society and inter-collegiate debates, upon popular questions, are frequently held. The most learned men available are asked to be present and serve as judges. In the study of science, theories are admissible only when facts cannot possibly be obtained. In the study of social science, statistics are indispensable.
