. i i -.-Q., Dedication The intense concentration on technology that characterizes our dav requires us to hold firm to a world view that reaches beyond this single integral part. We see in the advances made through ap- plied science a tremendous nonmoral potential for both good and evil. This potential can be handled only through a serious studv of a wide range of al- ternative values. It thus becomes not only a neces- sity but an obligation to re-evaluate and continually re-emphasize the function of the liberal arts, because through the many facets of this foundation of learn- ing we can best look into the whole of human ex- perience, we can best view not only the machinery of our civilization but its ultimate impetus, and finally we can best build the values necessary for the full and positive utilization of these enormous techno- logical advances. The liberal arts then are not a framework of study for any single isolated group but the ground floor for all groups working for the advancement of the human race. Furthermore, through a liberal, or perhaps better yet a liberating education, we seek to free ourselves from the prejudices that may arise from regarding only one side of our world. It is thus to the liberal arts-to the search for a broader, clearer world horizon that we dedicate this book.

Carlson was formally installed as the eleventh president of Rockford College. His investiture was held in con- junction with the 108th anniversary of the chartering of the college. Univer- sities, colleges, and learned societies from across the nation sent delegates and formal greetings to the college on the occasion. Always significant in the history of any college, the events of the week end were given additional import by an historic decision of the Rockford Col- lege Board of Trustees, on Saturday, February 26, to extend the educational fa- cilities of Rockford College to men through the establishment of a coordinate college. Thus, 108 years after its founding, Rockford College was to return to its historical origin in a coordinate situation and Dr. Carlson was to begin his ad- ministration in an atmosphere rich in a reaffirmation of past excellences but also bright in the anticipation of future uniqueness and new service to the entire realm of education.
