Abstract

High on the roof of the world, with its crest above the Arctic Circle, and nearly 800 miles of Russian frontier flanking it on the east, lies little Finland, land of 65,000 lakes and over 100,000 square miles of forest. Half its population is still employed in agriculture, but industrialisation has been recent and rapid, and with it has come the spread of education, transforming a peasant people into a completely literate one. So stiff now are the high school final examinations that those who pass them are automatically eligible for admission to the universities and the University of Helsinki, with its enrolment of 10,000 students, is the greatest in Northern Europe.
