Full text of "The Michigan alumnus"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

Vol. XXI. 



OCTOBER. 1914 



No. 197 



EVENT AND COMMENT 



While personal aC- 
MICHICANAND counts of many of 
THE WAR the members of the 

Faculty who spent 
their summer abroad have brought 
the terrible event in Europe close to 
Ann Arbor, yet the war has incon- 
venienced the University very little. 
The latter days of September saw al- 
most all the members of the Faculty 
back at work safely, though one, Mr. 
Rene Talamon, instructor in French, 
who was spending his honeymoon at 
his home in Paris, is now at the front 
with the French army. His wife, who 
was Miss Beatrice Underwood, of 
Nashville, Tennessee, is with his fam- 
ilv in Paris. Several members of the 
Faculty experienced difficulties in se- 
curing accommodations home, but all 
were able to get through, and almost 
universally deny undue hardship. 
Dean John O. Reed, '85, who has 
been living in Germany for the past 
two years, on account of ill health, is 
now at Jena, and Professor and Mrs. 
Scott, who were in Germany when the 
war broke out, found some difficulty 
in leaving, but reached Ann Arbor 
early in October. (S. The shortage of 
chemicals and medicine, due to the 
\rar, has been felt in the Departments 
of Chemistry and Medicine, though 
classes will be held as usual in Chem- 
istry, for the first semester at least. 
It is hoped that by the end of that 
time substitutes may be found for the 
necessary materials. Glassware and 
special surgical instruments are also 



difficult, if not impossible, to secure. 
The lack of certain special chemicals 
and medicines, and many of the dyes 
that are used in the preparation of 
microscopic slides will greatly hamper 
the work in many courses. Cl^The Uni- 
versity Library, too, has felt the force 
of the war. Practically all of the Ger- 
man scientific publications, and many 
of the French, have ceased. Orders 
for books, however, are still being re- 
ceived by certain of the publishing 
houses in Leipsic, subject to future 
delivery. The French correspondents 
of the Library have practically closed 
their business, and there will be little 
received from either France or Ger- 
many during the war. If the war 
should extend over several years, the 
LTniversity will undoubtedly be seri- 
ously inconvenienced in places where 
so far there has been little undue in- 
convenience. 



It is rather an irony 
TO THE MEMORY of fate to be immor- 
OF LEO talized in bronze, and 

then to be presented 
to the public under the wrong name. 
And this is what almost befell the 
four-footed companion of President 
Tappan in the bronze portrait which 
was unveiled last June, through the 
mistake of The Alumnus. His name 
was not Nero, but Leo, much more 
fitting when one comes to think of it, 
and we are very glad to make the cor- 
rection. (S, No portrait painted in the

[October 



memory of Dr. Tappan's students is 
complete without this faithful friend. 
How strong was the bond between 
the two may be gathered from a letter 
from President Tappan to Dr. Cory- 
don L. Ford in 1865, which was pub- 
lished in The Alumnus for October, 
1912. President Tappan says: "My 
old dog Leo, who died the last sum- 
mer I spent in Michigan, and whom 
I buried under a tree in my garden, 
often comes up before me when I sit 
alone and he seems to lay his head on 
my knee again and to look up into 
my face with his gentle, knowing eyes, 
and I feel as one feels when he recalls 
the tender memory of a departed 
friend. I know not how far you have 
gone in these matters, or what your 
experience has been. To me the rela- 
tions between us and the domestic 
animals is a subject of deep interest 
and a home seems hardly complete 
without them." 



Michigan's coming 
OCT. 31; MICHIGAN game with Harvard 
vs. HARVARD has aroused enthusi- 
asm as has no other 
game in years. In spite of the logic 
of circumstances and difficulties which 
on paper at least seem decidedly 
against the Varsity, the general spirit 
is surprisingly confident. That is of 
course as it should be. If we are go- 
ing to play Harvard, we must meet 
her with a belief that we are going 
to win. I^et the prognostications of 
the critics and the careful balancing 
of teams by the "armchair strategists" 
pass. There are some things which 
enter into the make-up of a team that 
cannot be measured — ^the spirit of the 
players, the morale, to quote a phrase 
used much these days, a certain ag- 
gressive spirit, a daring, which we 
believe our men have. C^lt is just here, 
we believe, that the secret of Mr. 
Yost's success as a coach lies. The 
game will probably reveal the strength 
of western aggressive play, but it will 



be decidedly important for Michigan 
to have a line which can stand against 
Harvard's weight. This, of course, 
was the great problem during the 
early days of the coaching season. 
Practice was under way much earlier 
than ever before, the mid-week games 
have been revived and as a result in 
the first games Michigan appeared to 
have at least two weeks advantage 
over former seasons. Michigan is 
admittedly strong in the backfield. 
Hughitt, Maulbetsch, Splawn, Catlett, 
Gait and a number of competitors 
pressing them hard are all formidable 
players, although somewhat lighter in 
weight than is comfortable. The ex- 
periments of the early season with the 
line were fairly reassuring; good de- 
fensive players seemed, if not exactly 
plentiful, yet available in sufficient 
numbers. But the aggressive oflFense 
on the part of the line, which is going 
to be so necessary, was still a problem 
at the time of this writing. We be- 
lieve, however, that it can be develop- 
ed, that the right men can be found 
and that Michigan will at least give 
a good account of herself. We hope 
she will do more. 



To the alumni the 
FOR THOSE WHO Spectacular qualities 
SEE THE GAME of a game between 
Michigan and Har- 
vard have made a strong appeal. 
There is no doubt but that Michigan 
is going to be represented in force at 
Cambridge. Special trains have been 
planned from many points. Many 
summer vacations have been post- 
poned until this time, and there is no 
doubt the game will be one of the 
best attended in which Michigan has 
ever participated. The Boston alumni 
are planning to entertain the visitors, 
with a smoker and mass meeting on 
the Friday evening before, to which 
all who come from away are invited.

nouncement on page 48. (^ The sug-

the recent past, the pendulum has been 
swinging towards the all-inclusive 
A.B., though of late there have been 
signs of a reaction. The whole ques- 
tion is more than a lining up of con- 
servative and progressive forces. It 
is quite possible that in the long run, 
the progressives will prove to be those 
who insist on a more rigid interpre- 
tation of the A.B., leaving another 
designation for those who elect the 
newer subjects which do not have be- 
hind them the traditions which have 
come to be associated with the Arts 
course. (S. The situation as viewed 
by those who have misgivings over 
the inflated A.B. is well outlined by 
the editor of The Nation in his an- 
nual educational issue. He quotes the 
experience of a member of the faculty 
in one of our universities, who dis- 
covered, in a room where he had ex- 
pected to find a mathematical semin- 
ary, six gas ranges, a complete out- 
fit of pots and pans and in a neighbor- 
ing room, a number of dressmakers' 
forms, while a class in the art of book- 
keeping occupied the floor below, all 
in courses in a college of liberal arts. 
He raises the question whether pro- 
ficiency in the art of cooking, sewing 
or joinery should properly count to- 
wards a degree hitherto reserved 
through long years as a recognition 
of liberal culture. 



One of the great 

THE A.B. DEGREE ^ju^ation seems to be 
symbolized by the 
struggle now going on about the good 
old A.B. degree. There are those who 
believe that it is losing its significance 
in the multiplicity of new vocational 
and broad cultural subjects, which 
in some universities have come 
to replace the old-fashioned insistence 
ttpon the humanities and pure sciences 
with their rigid mental discipline. Cl^In

THE ARTS DEGREEhas not gone in this

some universities, 
even though our writer does call at- 
tention to the fact that one cannot 
avail one's self of the services of a 
^'tonsorial artist'' in Michigan without 
being faced by a certificate to the fact 
that he has successfully passed his 
examination. The statement that this 
examination is not given in the state 
university does not perhaps entirely 
do away with a possible inference 
that Michigan is one of the colleges

[October 



under discussion in this matter. 
(H Nevertheless, we believe that the 
A.B. at Michigan contains something 
of its old prestige, and is in a way to 
regain more. There was a certain 
tightness and rigidity in the old re- 
quirements which were not in har- 
mony with modem progress. Per- 
haps in the past we wandered too far 
afield, though we have surely not been 
as venturesome as some of our con- 
temporaries, but the result may not 
be entirely unfortunate, if we bring 
back to the old ways a certain new 
vigor and correlation of academic 
ways to modem life. To spread the 
degree out so far that it means every- 
thing and nothing would certainly be 
unfortunate. If, as the writer in The 
Nation believes, it is only a question 
of time when the degree of bachelor 
of arts will confer as little distinction 
as a f>assport and less than a life in- 
suraiKe policy, standing neither for 
mental culture nor for useful knowl- 
edge, then it is time for a revision and 
a distinction of educational values and 
a more guarded definition of the lib- 
eral culture he demands. The sug- 
gested remedy is surely simple, merely 
to ensure that the courses leading to 
the degree of A.B. be of proved in- 
tellectual content. 



Public opinion in Ann 
THE DORMITORY Arbor of late has be- 
QUESTION come quite conscious 

of the rooming ques- 
tion for students. We are beginning 
to see that it is one of the pressing 
problems of the present. A solution 
has begun, where it should properly 
begin, with the halls of residence for 
freshman women. Here necessity was 
particularly pressing. But the needs 
of the men are almost as insistent, 
particularly so now that the fraterni- 
ties are not permitted to have their 
freshmen in the fraternity houses. 
CF, In discussing the new freshman 



dormitories at Harvard, the editor of 
The Nation, in a recent issue, recalls 
the hopeless loneliness of the fresh- 
man's first plunge into college life, 
"without friends or ties, and a bed- 
room in some cheap frame boarding 
house." If that is tme at Harvard, 
it is doubly tme at Michigan. Har- 
vard has tackled the problem aggres- 
sively, and, in the opinion of the writ- 
er just quoted, this establishment of 
freshman dormitories is by all odds 
President Lowell's most important 
undertaking. CD, The new dormitories 
are opened this fall. They consist of 
nine buildings in three groups, each 
group consisting of three dormitories, 
with a common dining room and living 
room in the center one. We probably 
cannot realize just what benefits 
would come to the student body at 
Ann Arbor if the freshmen were 
started in this way, but its first eflFect 
would certainly be democratization 
and an equality which we need. Even 
more important, it would better in- 
finitely living conditions. CD, Michigan, 
almost more than any other university 
is suflFering tmder an antique system, 
patterned after the German universi- 
ties, where the students room out 
among the townsfolk. This was all 
right in the early days when the Uni- 
versity was small and the town was 
large enough to accommodate the stu- 
dents. But the rapid growth of the 
University in late years has brought 
about a condition that is becoming in- 
tolerable. Recent investigations have 
shown that a dormitory can be built 
as a paying investments and still offer 
accommodations at a reasonable price 
to the students. Even at Cambridge, 
where prices are probably higher than 
at Ann Arbor, the meals are to be 
fumished at about five dollars a week, 
and the rooms are to cost from thirty- 
five to two hundred and twenty-five 
dollars a year, certainly not an ex- 
travagant scale, even for Michigan. 
The need at Michigan in this respect 
is as imperative as that at Harvard.

EVENT AND COMMENT 



Work on the new 
FOR THE FRESH- halls fof the women 
MAN GIRLS is progressing rapid- 

ly. The walls of the 
Helen Handy Newberry Hall, on 
State Street, opposite University Hall, 
are well up, and some idea of the ap- 
pearance of the building can already 
be obtained. The other larger dormi- 
tory, the gift of an unknown donor, 
is progressing somewhat more slowly, 
simply from the fact that it is so much 
larger. Nevertheless, the steel con- 
struction is well above the ground 
level, and the walls are beginning to 
rise. Both buildings will be complet- 
ed for use next year. CD, Meanwhile, 
the University has not b^en waiting 
for the new buildings to welcome the 
freshman girls. Extra efforts have 
been made this past year to get in 
touch with all who were coming to the 
University, and practically every 
freshman who had signified her inten- 
tion of doing so received at least three 
letters from a member of the junior 
girls' advisory board, giving her help, 
advice and useful hints. This organi- 
zation has also taken one of the rooms 
on the second floor of University Hall 
as its headquarters, and a corps of 
junior girls are on hand constantly to 
help and advise the newcomers. In 
fact, nothing has been neglected which 
would ensure the freshman's starting 
right. Next ye^ar the situation will 
be even more favorable, with the new 
dormitories added to the long list of 
approved rooming houses for Univer- 
sity women. 

From the August 
SOME ALUMNI number of The Mich- 
ARE PLEASED igan Bulletin, "of, by 
and for Michigan 
men of Chicago," we take pleasure in 
quoting the following appreciation of 
the efforts of the University and the 
Alumni Association last Commence- 
ment: 

Alumni may well feel gratified by the 
improvement noticeable in Commencement 



Week conditions at the University. Com- 
mencement is no longer the dreary affair 
of the past. 

The authorities have long recognized 
the necessity of making the proceedings 
more attractive and entertaining if alum- 
ni interest and attendance were to be in- 
creased. Hence the June ball games with 
Pennsylvania, which have proved a most 
successful experiment, supplying, as they 
do, an element of the highest interest to 
alumni, most of whom enjoy few oppor- 
tunities to see a Michigan team in action. 

The Mass Meeting in Hill Memorial, 
followed by the procession of alumni, led 
by the "M men" and the Michigan band, 
a splendid organization as re-organized, 
is another new feature which has great 
possibilities and should be made an an- 
nual event. 

Other significant changes can be ob- 
served. In shoft, on every hand it is 
apparent that concerted effort is being 
made to accomplish the purposes alluded 
to, and it must be said that a very grati- 
fying measure of success has been gained. 
Much remains to be done, doubtless, for 
a revolution of this sort cannot be ac- 
complished in a short time, but if this 
purpose continues to animate those in 
charge Commencement at Michigan bids 
fair to become the controlling factor in 
the University's campaign to knit more 
closely the bonds uniting herself and her 
alumni. 

One of the most noticeable of the re- 
cent developments incident to Commence- 
ment is the so-called "Graduates' Club," 
an exclusively social institution which 
holds two or three evening meetings dur- 
ing Commencement Week in the old skat- 
ing rink, and whose purpose is to furnish 
visiting alumni an opportunity to meet 
and refresh themselves with song, etc., 
free from restrictions and formality. For 
the conception and launching of this 
project we are indebted to the enterprise 
of certain well-known alumni, resident in 
Ann Arbor. 



Now is the time to 
NOW FOR REUN- make plans for the 
IONS IN 1915 reunions next June. 

It is not a minute to 
early to begin to stir things up. The 
last Commencement season was unus- 
ually successful, as the foregoing

shows, but there is no reason why we 
should not have twice as much enthu- 
siasm next year. In the first place, 
remember the date, June 22 and 23, 
1915, and plan to be there, particular- 
ly if your class is due to hold a re- 
union. According to the Dix sched- 
ule, the following classes are due to 
meet: '13, '02, '01. '00, '99, '83, '82, 
'81, '80, ^64, '63, *62, '61. CD; There 
are some classes, however, which 
still prefer to adhere to the old 
schedule. In that case, it will be those 



whose year ends in 5 or o. If your 
class plans to hold a reunion, you will 
probably hear from your class secre- 
tary soon, but if you have no word, 
or if you belong to one of those class- 
es who have no class secretary, we 
recommend that the individual mem- 
bers of the class get busy. Write to 
the General Secretary, and he will see 
that a class secret4r>' is appointed. 
There is no reason why we shouldn't 
have thirty or forty class reunions 
next June.

EVENT IN BRIEF 



EVENT IN BRIEF 
Dean John O. Reed, '85, who has 
been abroad on leave for several years 
past in an attempt to regain his health, 
has resigned as Dean of the Literary 
Department. Professor John R. Ef- 
finger, '91, who has filled Dean Reed's 
place during his absence, has been re- 
tained by the Regents as Acting Dean. 

The Ben Greet Woodland Players 
were in Ann Arbor from July 23 to 
July 25 for their usual Summer 
School engagement, giving five per- 
formances on the Campus. The plays 
presented were "Masques and Faces," 
by Charles Reade and Tom Taylor; 
"Twelfth Night"; "A Midsummer 
Night's Dream"; "As You Like- It'; 
and "The Tempest." 

Principal Jesse B. Davis, of the 
Grand Rapids Central High School, 
gave a series of five lectures on the 
different phases of vocational training 
from July 20 to 25 inclusive, as a part 
of the Summer Session lecture pro- 
gram. Mr. I>avis' subjects included: 
"The Vocational Guidance Move- 
ment:" "Vocational and Moral Guid- 
ance — A Problem of the Public 
Schools, No. I, "Below the High^ 
School:" No. 2, "The High School;" 
"The Vocation Bureau;" and "The 
Practical Application of Moral Guid- 
ance." 

Walton H. Hamilton, Assistant 
Professor of Political Economy in the 
University, has resigned his position 
to accept an assistant professorship in 
the same subject at the University of 
Chicago. Professor Hamilton has 
taught here for four years, coming to 
the University as an instructor in 
1910. In addition to teaching the ele- 
mentary classes, he has h^d charge of 
the courses in current problems and 
industrial reforms. In his new posi- 
tion. Professor Hamilton will have 
charge of the work in economic theo- 
ry, which is made up for the most 
part of graduate courses. 



The Landscape Department has 
taken over the old botanical gardens 
on the Boulevard, which were found 
inadequate for botanical experiments, 
and plans to transform them into a 
laboratory for advanced students in 
landscape design. This will necessi- 
tate a great amount of work, and ac- 
cording to Professor Tealdi, who is 
supervising the project, it will be a 
year or more before the laboratory 
will be completed and ready for actual 
use.

Rapids, business manager, have ap- 
pointed the following members of the 
Daily staff: Fred B. Foulk, '15/, Ann 
Arbor, editor of the Cosmopolitcm 
Student, news editor; T. Hawley 
Tapping, '16/, Peoria, 111., and Francis 
F. McKinney, '16/, Washington, D. 
C, associate editors ; Felix M. Church, 
'14, Ann Arbor, sporting editor. 

Permission has been given provi- 
sionally by the Senate for an extended 
trip for the 1915 Michigan Union 
Opera during the week of spring va- 
cation, April 10 to 19, inclusive. It 
is planned to visit all the nearby 
towns th^t are strong enough in alum- 
ni sentiment, and Manager Heath, of 
the Union, has outlined a tentative 
itinerary which includes visits to 
Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, South 
Bend, Chicago, Fort Wayne, Toledo 
and Detroit. If the alumni demand is 
strong enough, it is probable that two 
performances will be given in both 
Detroit and Chicago. The Hill Audi- 
torium, will, in all probability, be used 
for the home performances, instead 
of the Whitney Theater, as formerly. 
Comparatively little expense will be 
needed to make the stage of the Audi- 
torium suitable for the production of 
the Opera, and the large hall will en- 
sure accommodations for everyone 
who wishes to attend.

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[October 



It will interest and please many 
alumni to learn that the University 
will profit to the extent of some $192,- 
ocx) annually through the recent re- 
valuation of the vState by the Tax 
Commissioners. The tax is now three- 
eighths of a mill. 

A fellowship carrying a stipend of 
$500 has been established this year at 
the University by the Flavoring Ex- 
tract Manufacturers' Association for 
an independent authoritative scientific 
study of the manufacture and analysis 
of vanilla extract. Dr. Julius O. 
Schlotterbeck, 'Syp, '91, who has this 
fall returned to his professorship in 
the Department of Pharmacy after 
two years leave of absence, is the 
chairman of the committee on Scien- 
tific Research, and is also vice-presi- 
dent of the Association. Samuel H. 
Baer, '96, of the B'lanke-Baer Chem- 
ical Co., St. Louis, is the president of 
the Association. 

At the University of Michigan at 
the present time there are seventeen 
sectional clubs, representing as many 
diflPerent portions of the country. The 
largest club is that composed of stu- 
dents from the State of Illinois, with 
a membership last year of 102, and 
the deans of the Literary and Law 
Departments as honorary members. 
The Dixie Club, made up of students 
whose homes are below the Mason 
and Dixon line, has a membership of 
73, with 16 states represented. One 
hundred and twenty-five students, 
representing 28 countries, make up 
the membership of the Cosmopolitan 
Club. The Thumb Club, made up of 
men coming from the "Thumb" dis- 
trict of Michigan, numbers 60 mem- 
bers ; the Club I^atino Americano, an 
organization of students whose homes 
are located, as its name indicates, in 
the Latin-American countries, has a 
membership of 18; and the Rocky 
Mountain Club, now the Kappa Beta 
Psi fraternity, is made up of 40 men 
representing 12 states west of the 



Mississippi; while in the Dominion 
Club, made up of students from Can- 
ada, are more than a score of mem- 
bers. Among the state clubs are the 
Indiana Club, organized last year, 
with a membership of 60; the New 
York State Club, which is housed in 
its own building, with 30 members; 
and the Kentucky Club, with 35 mem- 
bers. Of the city clubs, that repre- 
senting Grand Rapids is the largest, 
with 64 members. In the Cabinet 
Club, are 26 men whose homes are in 
Washington, and 20 students living 
in BuflFalo have recently organized a 
club. Two Detroit high schools are 
represented in clubs, the Phoenix 
Club, with a membership made up of 
40 graduates from the Detroit West- 
em High School, and the Totem Club, 
with about the same number of alimi- 
ni from the Detroit Eastern High 
School as members. 

From Lieutenant Thomas M. 
Spaulding, '05, now at Washington, 
D. C, The Alumnus has received 
the following tabulation of represen- 
tatives of the LTniversity of Michigan 
in the 1914 edition of ''Who's Who in 
-America," which has recently been 
published.

EVENT IN BRIEF 



Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, Dean of 
the Medical Department, was inaugu- 
rated as President of the American 
Medical Association at its sixty-fifth 
annual convention, held at Atlantic 
City in June, succeeding Dr. John A. 
Witherspoon, of Nashville, Tenn. For 
his inaugural address, Dr. Vaughan 
chose the subject **The Service of 
Medicine to Civilization.*' 

That the University Hospital is 
rapidly increasing both in size and 
efficiency is shown by the figures re- 
cently compiled for the year ending 
June 30, 1913. During that time, the 
Hospital cared for 6,803 patients, an 
increase of 1,107 over the previous 
year. Of this number, 791 came from 
outside the State. This increase was 
made possible by the recent extensive 
improvements in the hospital pbnt, 



whereby a larger number of patients 
can be accommodated, and be better 
cared for, than at any time in the his- 
tor\' of the Hospital. The receipts 
for that year from all sources amount- 
ed to $124,928.22, an increase of 
$26,757.86 over 1911-12, but the run- 
ning expenses, nevertheless, exceeded 
the receipts by some $10,000. Seven- 
ty-four beds have been added, making 
the total capacity of the Hospital 374. 
As the State has recently made it pos- 
sible for the judges of probate to refer 
children to the University Hospital at 
their discretion for treatment at state 
expense, thirty-five of the new beds 
were added to the children's ward in 
order to meet this emergency. The 
number of nurses in the training 
school has also been increased from 
100 to 125, and the number of nurses 
in the hospital from 65 to 125.

THE' SUMMER SESSION 

According to figures recently made public by Dean E. H. Kraus, the 
registration for the Summer Session of 1914 proved to be the largest in the 
history of the University. A total of 1,594 students were enrolled, a gain of 
192 over the previous year. With the exception of the Biological Station, 
where only 2^ students were registered, as against 29 in 1913, there were 
substantial increases in every department, the largest being shown in the 
Departments of Engineering and Architecture, in the Graduate Department, 
and in the courses in Library Methods, Embalming and Sanitary Science. 
Ninety-five students were enrolled at the Bogardus Engineering Camp, a 
gain of 35 over previous years; 12 registered for the course in Sanitary 
Science, as against three in 1913, while the unexpectdly large registration 
of 33 in the Library Methods course taxed to the utmost the present facili- 
ties f»r instruction. 

Following is the comparative table of attendance for 1913 and 1914 
in the different departments :

Unusual interest was shown this year in the program of special lectures 
and entertainments. The seventy-two numbers included fifty-two lectures, 
two geological excursions, four recitals by the Department of Oratory, five 
open-air performances by the Ben Greet Woodland Players, six concerts 
in Hill Auditorium by the members of the Faculty of the University School 
of Music, three vistors' nights at the Observatory and the President's an- 
nual reception to the students of the Summer Session. :fn addition to the 
usual lectures by members of the University Faculty, addresses were given 
by Dr. E. S. Buchanan, of Oxford, England; Regent J. E. Beal, of Ann 
Arbor ; Dr. J. L. Snyder, President of the Michigan Agricultural College ; 
Mr. J. B. r^vis. Principal of the Grand Rapids Central High School ; Re- 
gent L. L. Hubbard, of Houghton; Mr. E. C. Warriner, Superintendent 
of Schools of Saginaw, E. S. ; and Dr. C. E. Chadsey, Superintendent of 
Schools of Detroit. 

The Ann Arbor Civic Association also co-operated with the University, 
offering courses in typewriting, stenography and domestic science, and 
conducting an extensive program of popular lectures and entertainments, 
in addition to those offered by the University.

1914I COMPARATIVE CLUB STANDINGS n 

THE COMPARATIVE STANDING OF FRATERNITIES AND HOUSE 
CLUBS 

The scholastic standing of the fraternities, sororities and other house 
clubs in the University for the year 1913-14 is shown in the third annual 
chart which has just been made public. As a whole, the statistics are en- 
couraging. Comparison with the two previous charts, the second of which 
was published in the October, 1913, Alumnus, is interesting. There is a 
noticeable upward movement on the part of the general fraternities, with 
the average raised from below to just above the C grade, or passing line. 
This, however, is the lowest general average in any classification. The 
chart reveals the fact that all the fraternities are still way below all the 
sororities, with one exception, a sorority in which most of the members are 
from the School of Music. 

Quite noticeable is the improvement in the two tail-enders of previous 
years, Sigma Phi, which is now well above the average grade, advancing to 
ninth place in two years, and Delta Chi, which has risen to just above 
the average in one year. The lead is still held by Kappa Beta Psi, formerly 
known as the Rocky Mountain Club. The highest average in the general 
classifications is that of the "general sororities," with the "other women's 
clubs" not far behind. Both of these classifications are well above the aver- 
age for the entire University, while all the men's organizations are below. 
The average for all unorganized students is slightly above the general 
average, while that of all house clubs is somewhat below, — a, rather signifi- 
cant fact. There has been a slight falling-off in the averages of "women's 
clubs" other than sororities, and for "other men's clubs," which has reduced 
the general average for all house clubs slightly. The average for all unor- 
ganized students has also dropped slightly during the past year. 

In the column where correction was needed the most, that of the gen- 
eral fraternities, the leaders are higher than last year, and the lowest fra- 
ternity is not so low. The general emphasis is rather above the C grade, 
while last year it was considerably below. The rapid rise of the foot of the 
class is a sure indication of the effect of the publication of these charts, 
though it is to be regretted that certain organizations seem contented with 
the average, or worse than average, position, which they hold. The way in 
which the charts have been heeded, however, is a striking commentary on 
the need for some such stimulant for scholarship. The fraternities them- 
selves have become conscious of the need of improvement, and the recent 
organization on their own initiative, of an Inter-fraternity Conference is 
the result. After a series of conferences with the University Senate, the 
fraternities revised their house rules, and of their own accord adopted the 
more stringent regulations regarding rushing and initiating freshmen, which 
were published last year. The upperclassmen also took upon themselves the 
duty of watching closely the work of the lowerclassmen. To aid in these 
efforts for reform the fraternities requested that the comparative standing 
of each fraternity, sorority and other organized groups be made public. 
These charts which are distributed among the different groups, and are 
widely used in rushing and as a spur for lagging students, were the result.

14 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [October 

ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE PENNSYLVANIA-MICHIGAN GAME 

The following arrangements have been made by the Athletic Associa- 
tion for the accommodation of Michigan and Pennsylvania alumni and their 
friends in the distribution of seats for the Pennsylvania game on November 
7. All applications for tickets should be made out to P. G. Bartelme, Ann 
Arbor, and mailed at once, as all applications will be filled in the order hi 
which they are received. This is important. In any case, the management 
does not guarantee to furnish the seats in any particular location, although 
if a special stand or section is specified, the sender's wishes will be followed 
as far as possible. When that cannot be done, seats will be assigned in the 
best possible location remaining, at the discretion of the management. All 
applications must be in writing, and should reach the Athletic Association 
on or before October 31 for the Pennsylvania game. The same arrange- 
ments are in force for the Cornell game, which is to be held Saturday, 
November 14, for which applications should reach the Association on or 
before November 7. Remittances must be made by New York, Chicago 
or Detroit exchange, postoffice or express money order, payable to P. G. 
Bartelme. Twelve cents in stamps should be included for return postage 
and registering. 

The prices of reserved seats for both, including admission, are as 
follows : 

Side Bleacher Seats, each $2 .00 

Box Seats from the 20-yard line to the end of the field 

(six seats in each box) each seat ' 3.00 

Box Seats between the 20-yard lines (six seats in ^ich box) 

Each seat 4.00 

Special transportation arrangements will be made by the Michigan Cen- 
tral and Ann Arbor Railroads and the interurban lines, so that there will be 
ample train service from all points where the business warrants. Many 
of these special trains will be run on the Ann Arbor tracks direct to the 
field. 

Arrangements have also been made with the Harvard Athletic Asso- 
ciation whereby the University has the privilege of distributing reservations 
for the Harvard game to the Michigan alumni and their friends. This 
will bring Michigan's supporters together in one of the most desirable 
sections of the east side of the Harvard Stadium. Tickets can be secured 
through Mr. Bartelme, and applications should be made directly. Ar- 
rangements are being perfected for a special train leaving Ann Arbor and 
Detroit on Thursday afternoon, arriving in Boston Friday noon. For fur- 
ther particulars, write Mr. L. D. Heusner, Passenger Department, M. C. 
R. R., Detroit, Mich.

parative neurology, Dr. Johnston has shown himself well adapted to gen- 
eral executive work, and was really elected by a referendum vote of the 
entire faculty of the college. A discussion of "University Organization*' 
by Dr. Johnston appears on page 20. A biographical sketch follows: 

John Black Johnston was bom on October 3, 1868, at Belle Center, 
Ohio. Entering the University with the class of 1893, ^^ was graduated 
with the degree of Ph.B., receiving his doctor's degree six years later. 
Upon graduation he became assistant, and then instructor in zoology in the 
University, remaining in Ann Arbor until 1899, when he left to become

assistant professor of zoology in the University of West Virginia. The 
next year he was made professor in the same subject, and in 1907 
he was called to the University of Minnesota as assistant professor 
of anatomy of the nervous system. Here he has remained, becom- 
ing in 1908 associate professor of comparative neurology, and the 
next year professor of that subject. The summers of 1896 and 
1901 he spent at the Marine Biological Laboratory in further study, 
and the summer of 1904 he was at the Bermuda Biological Station. In 
1904-5 he was a student at the Zoological Station at Naples and the Uni- 
versity of Freiburg. Since 1910 he has acted as secretary of the medical 
faculty, and since 1911 as editor-in-chief of the Research Publications.

SOME GIFTS TO THE UNIVERSITY 

Through the generosity of Mr. Dean C. Worcester, '89, ScD. (hon) 
'14, member of the second Philippine Commission, and until recently 
Secretary of the Interior of the Philippine Islands, the University has 
received a large and very valuable collection of documents relating to the 
Philippine Islands. This gift to the University was made known to the 
Regents at their July meeting through a letter from Mr. Worcester describ- 
ing in some detail the character of the collection. 

The collection represents the work of more than fourteen years of 
service in the Philippines. Some of the documents are printed, many of 
theni are in manuscript, while a considerable number are of a confidential 
nature. Included in the list are notes made on numerous exploring expe- 
ditions into territory pre\'iously unknown or wtvy imperfectly known, un- 
der Mr. Worcester's immediate supervision. They are illustrated with 
numerous photographs which are now of considerable value, and will be- 
come more valuable with the lapse of time. 

There are copies of many of the official letters written during Mr. 
Worcester's incumbency as Secretary of the Interior of the Islands, of 
which he kept separate copies, as well as of many important endorsements. 
These have all been bound by years and indexed. Copies of all documents 
in connection with a number of important questions which provoked more 
or less controversy are also preserved, while there is a fairly complete 
set of official reports and government publications of every description. 
There is also a valuable collection of newspaper clippings dealing with im- 
portant events. 

The only expense to the University connected with this very important 
gift is the actual cost of packing and transportation, of such documents 
as may be transmitted from time to time. There are a few restrictions which 
arise out of the confidential nature of some of the documents, some of 
which will be sealed, and are not to be opened until a date noted on the out- 
side. 

In accepting this generous gift, the Board of Regents provided that 
the collection should be amply cared for in the new reserve book stacks 
of the University Library, and that it should be known as the Dean C. 
Worcester Collection of Manuscripts and Books Dealing with the Philipn 
pines. 

Further provision was made for the copying of a series of selected 
documents, numbering some 250,000, which were captured by the army

i8 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [October 

during the insurrection in the Philippines. These were written in Spanish, 
Spanish cipher, Tagalog or Tagalog cipher and some even in Visayan or 
other native dialects. They had been translated by Major J. R. M. Taylor, 
of the Department of Military Information, who with a corps of assist- 
ants worked for four years translating and classifying them. Major Taylor 
also wrote an important historical narrative covering the last insurrection 
of the Philippines against Spain, the insurrection against the United States 
and the establishment of civil government, supporting his statements by more 
than 1, 800 carefully selected documents which were attached as exhibits. 

It had been originally intended to publish this matter, but the plan was 
abandoned when the type was set and standing. The plates were destroyed, 
but four sets of galley proof had fortunately been taken. One set of these 
proofs, at present the property of Major-General J. F. Bell, is now in 
Mr. Worcester's custody. As the documents are of very great importance 
in adding great understanding of past and present conditions in the Phil- 
ippine Islands, it is suggested by Mr. Worcester that a typewritten copy be 
made of them. Provision was accordingly made by the University for 
copying the matter, which consists of some 987 galleys, the whole forming 
a great addition to the collection. 



In connection with Dean C. Worcester's gift, it is also a pleasure to 
notice a gift to the University of Dr. C. B. de Nancrede, Professor of 
Surgery in the Medical Department, received by the Regents at the same 
meeting. In a letter to the Board Dr. de Nancrede stated that he had a 
number of useful and valuable medical instruments which he desired to 
present to the University Hospital, where he hoped they might prove as 
serviceable as they had in the past. Although they are not now capable of 
being sold for any such amount, the original cost was about $1,000, and it 
would require that sum to duplicate them. Dr. de Nancrede also found that 
he had some hundreds of medical works in his possession which were not 
in the possession of the University Library, and he asked that such books 
as were not duplicates be accepted by the University in order that they 
might be of use to students. Dr. de Nancrede estimates that there are about 
500 volumes in the collection. 

THE NEW STAND ON FERRY FIELD 

Construction of the concrete football stand has been progressing rap- 
idly all summer long, and was practically complete on September 11. All 
that remained to be done after this date was the placing of a large portion 
of the ten inch plank seats on their concrete pedestals. Half of the stand 
was ready for use at the time of the early games of the season, while the 
whole stand will be dedicated, it is expected, at the Pennsylvania game on 
November 7, 19 14. 

The seats of the stand are arranged somewhat differently from those 
in the stadiums of other universities. For a person of ordinary height 
there will be four inches clearance above any person sitting in front of him.

a result obtained by constructing the first eleven rows with 9-inch risers, 
the second eleven with lo-inch risers, the third eleven with ii-inch risers, 
the fourth eleven with 12-inch risers and the last eleven with 13-inch risers. 
This arrangement, which gives the stand a graceful, concave appearance, 
has, according to the athletic authorities, caused a rather amusing rumor 
to be circulated to the effect that the stand was sinking in tlje middle. 

A careful study of the concrete stands and stadiums elsewhere was 
made by the Board in Control of Athletics before the plans for this new 
one were prepared. The Board feels confident that for the purposes in- 
tended, viz., to seat as large a number of people as possible comfortably, 
and to bring them as close as possible to the field of play, the type of this 
new stand is superior to any other, though costing considerably less per 
seat. 

Some comparative figures with the stands at Yale, Harvard and Chi- 
cago have been prepared by the Association. The capacity of the present 
structure, which is one side of the projected stadium, is 13,200. The 
capacity of the stand partially completed at Chicago is 8,800; for the 
complete stadium at Harvard 39,000, and 61,500 for the "bowl" at Yale. 
Whereas the present structure at Michigan cost $55,000, Yale's will cost 
$550,000, with the others somewhat less. There are 55 rows in the Mich- 
igan stand as against 33 at Chicago, 31 at Harvard and 57 at Yale. The 
distance from the side line of the thirty-first row at Michigan is 104 feet, at 
Chicago 115 feet, at Harvard 106 feet and at Yale 148 feet, while the dis- 
tance from the goal line, if extended across the stand, at Michigan is about 
30 feet, at Chicago about 75 feet, at Harvard about 65 feet and at Yale 
about 30 feet. The final capacity of the stand will be in the neighborhood 
of 52,000, as against 31,000 at Chicago, 46,500 at Harvard, and 61,500 at 
Yale, while the cost will be $275,000. The completed Chicago stand will 
cost about $450,000, while Harvard's, which is not yet entirely complete, 
will be $500,000.

UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION* 

This subject has become in recent years one of intense interest. In 
most utterances on the subject the prominent feature is the statement that 
our universities are undemocratic, that they are monarchical institutions in 
a democratic countr)'. This criticism takes various forms. When a uni- 
versity president speaks, the shortcomings of the university are due to the 
fact that the governing board are ignorant, shallow-minded, arrogant and 
headstrong ; that they insist upon deciding matters beyond their knowledge 
and will not be guided by the president. When a university professor 
speaks it is the university presidency which is at fault. Autocracy, blind- 
ness, willfulness, prejudice, partiality, lofty-mindedness, oratorical ability, 
money-getting talents, piety and many other virtues and vices are ascribed 
to our presidents, but in the minds of nearly all writers the presidency is 
an unsatisfactory tool. When an outsider speaks, both president and gov- 
erning board are parts of a vicious organization. 

Let us grant that there is much truth in this. Boards may be unwise ; 
the presidency may be unequal to its responsibilities and opportunities. Yet 
there is a third point of view, a more ifundamental consideration. In the 
American University, as in the Russian political system, the chief difficulty 
is not with the autocrat, but with the bureaucrat. In my opinion, we can 
not go much farther astray than baldly to lay the shortcomings of our uni- 
versities upon the president. As for the presidency, it is part of a great 
system ; the president is the unfortunate occupant of an office. 

Let us see how the matter stands. Any large institution such as one 
of our universities, in order to be successful, must have general aims or 
policies, must have an organization to carry them out, and must secure at 
once the successful operation of each of its subdivisions in its own sphere 
and the co-operation of each of these in the larger ends of the whole. The 
president is given, nominally at least, the responsibility of directing this 
organization in general and the right, when necessity arises, to intervene in 
the conduct of any of the parts in order to make them efficient and to adjust 
their relations with the remainder of the institution. Can. any president do 
this under present conditions? 

To bring about efficient work for desirable ends in any large institution 
certain things are necessary. First, a knowledge of what are the desirable 
aims or ideals for that institution and of how these ideals should be adjusted 
to the conditions of human life and to the life of the particular community 
from time to time. Second, a knowledge on the part of the executive of 
the workings of all parts of the institution and of the abilities of each mem- 
ber of the staff. Third, the possession of actual power by the executive to 
secure the co-operation of all parts in whatever is for the common welfare. 
This is true no matter whether the common welfare is found in the closest 
centralizati on or in the greatest freedom of individual action, no matter

the University of Minnesota, before a group of faculty men last November. It

whether the executive is a president or a committee or takes some other 
form. Our universities must be organized, must have common ends and 
must exercise executive power, if the only end of that power be to secure 
anarchy. It is my purpose to inquire what is wrong with the present organ- 
ization that our universities should work so badly and that individuals 
should suflfer so in the process. 

Where does a university get its ideals or policies? Necessarily, they 
become the possession of the institution through the expression of ideas or 
opinions by members of the faculty and student body and through the 
acaimulation of such ideas in the form known as traditions. Individuals in 
the university, whether president, instructors or students, necessarily fur- 
nish the ideas out of which common aims are constructed and in accordance 
with which old aims are adjusted to new conditions. Is there at the present 
time any adequate means by which the ideas of individuals can be made 
available for the common good ? Two illustrations will answer the question 
in part. The head of a university department called together his entire 
staff including student assistants to discuss the organization of teaching 
with a view to improving the arrangement and content of the courses of 
study. The whole matter was discussed at two successive meetings, the 
professors talking over various plans without coming to any satisfactory 
conclusion. Instructors and assistants had been asked to think over the 
matter and at the second meeting each one in turn was called upon for sug- 
gestions. One assistant had a plan entirely different from anything that 
had been suggested. He outlined it and showed how it would improve the 
teaching and bring about a better correlation in the work of the department. 
The men of professorial rank criticized the plan severely and the young man 
was made to feel that he was presumptuous in proportion as his plan was 
chimerical. After a rather long interval a third meeting was called. The 
head of the department announced that a plan had been devised, and pro- 
ceeded to outline the identical plan which had been proposed by the assistant. 
It remained in effect for several years. Absolutely no hint of credit or rec- 
ognition was ever given to the young man. Again, an instructor arose in 
general faculty meeting in an arts college in a state university and discusi^ed 
a pending question at some length and with much cogency. His friends 
were filled with apprehension and one of them finally succeeded in signalling 
to the speaker to desist. He was afterwards informed by the dean that men 
below the rank of assistant professor were not expected to debate questions 
in the facuky. Instances might be multiplied to show that great difficulties 
stand in the way of the ideas of young men finding expression or receiving 
consideration in our universities. It is a well-known fact that in many de- 
partments the young men never know what plans are afoot until their 
duties are assigned them. And yet the young men are the only ones who 
can offer any new ideas to their institutions. Let it not be thought that the 
writer has any personal interest in this aspect of the question. He has 
passed the time when he can expect to produce any neiv ideas. Whatever 
new ideas he might have contributed to the universities with which he has 
been connected are lost forever, — unless indeed, ear is still given to what

he might have said years ago. Of course, that is precisely what our mode 
of organization means. The university forbids a young man to speak until 
he becomes a professor. Then if he has not forgotten the ideas which came 
to him in the days of his youth and enthusiasm, or if the time for their 
application has not long gone by, the institution is willing to listen to him. 
That ensures conservatism, — but not progress. It means that the university 
never adjusts its ideals to the times but is forever denying itself the infor- 
mation which its individual members could supply. 

If the university is slow and inefficient in securing information as 
to what should be its aims and policies, what about the sources of 
information for the executive as to how those policies are being carried 
out? The president depends for his information first upon the deans of 
colleges and schools, and second, upon the heads of departments. He de- 
pends upon these men also for executive functions under his direction. The 
president must depend upon these men for information, since he can not by 
any possibility know all the details by his own observation. Neither can he 
go personally to all individuals for information. In general the president 
is equally under the necessity of following the advice of his heads of depart- 
ments, since otherwise he would lose their confidence and his only source 
of information. The president instead of being the autocratic monster that 
he is. depicted, is in an almost pitiable situation. Unless he be a man of 
altogether extraordinary energy and strength of purpose, he is wholly at 
the mercy of his heads of departments. So far as the heads of departments 
are honest, wise and possessed of ideals for the common good the president 
is fortunate, and nothing that I may say in this talk can be construed as a 
criticism of such men. But heads of departments are endowed with human 
nature, and it is well known that they exhibit it in the conduct of their 
departments. 

In one case a department of chemistry was equipped with a great 
amount of expensive glassware and analytical apparatus of which the head 
of the department did not know the uses, while the students' tables were 
almost devoid of ordinary reagent bottles. The younger men in the depart- 
ment were unable for a long time to secure the ordinary equipment needed. 
In other cases men who were drawing full professors' salaries have taken 
their time for outside professional work or for dealing in real estate, coal 
or gas, neglecting their teaching and imposing extra work on the instructors 
to the detriment of both instructors and students. A head of department 
may carry on for years policies which are not approved by a single member 
of his staff; may absent himself from all teaching whatever; may neglect 
to do any research work or contribute anything to the advancement of his 
science; may pursue constantly a policy of selfish material aggrandizement 
for which the department suffers both in the esteem of the university and 
in the decrease of scientific work which the members of staff can do ; may 
deliberately sacrifice the interests of the students to his personal ambitions, 
and may in these ways cause constant friction and great waste of energy 
throughout the college — all this while maintaining a pretense, or even a 
belief, that he is a most public-spirited and useful member of the faculty.

The head may conduct his department in such a way as to make research 
impossible and even drive men out of his department because they do re- 
search, all the while that he himself talks of the importance of research. 
Heads may appoint to high positions men who have given no evidence what- 
ever of their qualifications for the woiit proposed. Heads of departments 
and deans have been known to use their offices to secure advancement for 
their personal friends and are able to sidetrack valuable proposals for the 
common good which threaten to compete with their own interests. 

The head of a department enjoys a remarkable liberty in the conduct 
of his department and in the performance of his individual duties. He may 
suppress the individualism of his staff members, ignore any suggestions 
which they may make, and dismiss them if they insist upon their ideas. He 
may falsify the reports as to the teaching and other work done by himself 
and by members of his staff. If subordinate members of the staff have 
different ideas as to the conduct of the departments they are vigorously 
overruled by the head, and if any question of bad policy or of injustice is 
brought to the stage of investigation by the president, that officer is gov- 
erned by the principle that all matters of testimony must be construed by him 
in a light as favorable as possible to the head of the department. The pres- 
ident is bound to do this because he is dependent upon his heads of depart- 
ments for information, advice and executive assistance. The "heads of 
departments" thus become a system which involves the president and from 
the toils of which he can not easily extricate himself. It is a matter of com- 
mon knowledge that in some departments no member of staff is asked for 
his opinions or is encouraged to hold or express independent views, that 
younger members of the faculty commonly dare not express themselves 
publicly or go to the president or dean in matters in which they differ from 
the heads of their departments, and that generally the department head 
assumes that the decision of any question resides with the "responsible 
head,'* regardless of the views of his subordinates. There is no way in 
which the members of staff can influence the policy of their department, 
there is no channel by which the facts can be brought effectively to the 
notice of the president or governing board, and there is no assurance in our 
present form of organization that the welfare of the staff or their opinions 
as to the welfare of the university would receive consideration if opposed 
to the desires of the department head. All this is expressed in common 
university parlance by saying that the head regards the department as his 
personal property and the members of staff as his hired men. 

I believe that a truer statement of the case is this. Some years ago 
each subject was taught by a single professor. The growth in the number 
of students made it necessary to appoint new instructors to assist the pro- 
fessor. At first these assistants were very subordinate in years and experi- 
ence and it was only natural that the responsibility for the work of the 
department should remain with the professor. With further growth of the 
institution the department staff has come to include several instructors and 
professors, each of whom has a primary interest and responsibility in the 
welfare of the department and of the institution. Instead of this being

recognized, the full powers of the department have been left in the hands 
of the original head. These heads have in consequence come into control of 
these sources of information to the executive, have jealously guarded their 
great powers, and are able to direct departmental and university policies 
through holding the president in ignorance and their subordinates in con- 
tempt. In other words, university control has come to be vested in a system 
of irresponsible heads of departments. This was what was meant in the 
beginning by saying that the difficulty lies not with the autocrat, but with 
the bureaucrat. More than one well-meaning university president has 
recognized the situation, admitted his powerlessness at critical periods and 
has sought to extricate himself and his university by having recourse to 
private interviews and by appointment of advisory committees. 

If the only evils of this system were that it entails upon the president 
great difficulties of university management and results in the misdirection 
of department affairs and the waste of material resources, it would not be 
so intolerable. Its more serious effects are that it lowers the efficiency and 
the moral and spiritual tone of the whole institution, that it wastes the time 
and energy of whole staffs in order that the head may take his ease or 
satisfy his ambitions. Moreover, taking away from faculty members the 
responsibility for the conception and execution of university policies is the 
best possible way to break down the practical efficiency of these men and 
to reduce the college professor by a process of natural selection to the 
impractical, inexperienced hireling that he is popularly supposed to be. 
Whether this is in part the cause of the wretched teaching which is done 
in our universities and of the lack of standards of work and of character 
for the student, I leave you to judge. 

There is a second unfortunate feature in our university organization 
to which I will give only brief attention. This is the prominence of the 
colleges and schools and the sharp boundaries between them. The colleges 
are not based upon any natural subdivision of knowledge, but upon practical 
or technical grounds. Each college has in view the esteem of its own 
profession and has little sympathy with other colleges which make up the 
university. The ver>^ existence of the colleges creates special interests and 
produces strife which is in no way related to the welfare of the student or 
the general public. Teaching and equipment — apparatus, supplies, library 
— are duplicated, the natural relations of fields of knowledge are subordin- 
ated to the practical application of specific facts and laws, college walls 
and college interests intervene to prevent the student from following co- 
related subjects in which he is in-terested, professional interests and pro- 
fessional ideals begin early to narrow the student's vision and to substitute 
professional tradition and practice for sound judgment and an open mind. 
All this is unfortunate. The professions should foster but not confine their 
apprentices. A student preparing for professional work should have the 
advantage of the traditions and practices prevailing in the profession, but 
those traditions and practices should not constitute limitations on his oppor- 
tunities, his enterprise or his initiative. 

A third evil tendency in pur universities is the growing complexity of 
administrative organization. Good results cannot be secured by relying

chiefly on a system of checks and safeguards. These cannot replace cap- 
ability, honesty and a genuine interest in the university's welfare. Checks 
and safeguards can at best only prevent some abuses, while they certainly 
place obstacles in the way of men who would do honest work. It is of doubt- 
ful valive to set a sheep dog to keep cats from killing young chickens — 
especially when the main business of the imiversity is not to raise either 
sheep or chickens, but to rear men. There is a constant danger that good 
men will be obliged to kotow to administrative officials^ who ought to be 
servants but who proclaim themselves masters. To appoint capable men 
and to place confidence in their concordant judgment would at once prevent 
the abuses and secure the desirable ends. 

FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH UNIVERSITY ORGANIZATION SHOULD 

REST 

The functions of a university are three. First, to bring together 
teachers and students under such conditions that the whole field of know- 
ledge is opened to the student and he is offered competent and reliable 
advice and assistance in his studies. The second function arises from the . 
responsibility for the competent direction of the student's work. The uni- 
versity must examine the foundations of its authority by making original 
investigations to test, correct and enlarge the existing body of knowledge. 
No institution which neglects to prosecute research in as many fields as 
practical conditions permit, is worthy of the name of university. The third 
function of a university is to make its store of knowledge practically avail- 
able to its community and patrons and to stimulate in the members and the 
community an interest in the further acquisition of knowledge. 

The university is thus concerned with knowledge and its applications. 
University organization exists for the purpose of securing suitable conditions 
for research and teaching, for the acquisition and the application of knowl- 
edge. Certain of the conditions of successful work in a university may be 
laid down without argument. First, thaft each individual instructor or stu- 
dent should enjoy freedom and bear responsibility in his work, i. e., he 
should be judged by his achievements. Second, the recognition of the facts 
that dealing with knowledge is the central function of the university ; that 
all organization must contribute to this end; that the teacher, the student 
and the research worker are the sole persons of primary value in the 
university ; that all administrative officers are accessory machinery ; that all 
organization should spring from those primarily engaged in the university's 
work ; and that all authority should rest with these and with the community 
which supports the institution. This organic relation of the actual workers 
to the university government is at once a natural right and the foundation 
of that personal interest and enthusiasm which are necessary to successful 
endeavor. Note that I do not say that the instructor and research worker 
should be made to feel that he has an interest in the university organization 
and a part in university policies through his advice and so forth, but that 
the teacher and research worker is in the nature of things the actual source

of authority in the university, conditioned only by the relations of the univer- 
sity to its community. 

What, now, is the proper form of university organization, and how can 
it be approached in our state universities? 

The governing board should represent both the community served and 
the university. The people of the state furnish the financial and spiritual 
support for the university and receive the benefits of its work. The sup- 
port can be withheld whenever the returns are unsatisfactory. The interests 
of the people do not require to be protected by the governing board. The 
members of the university faculties contribute their lives and receive in 
return a living wage. It is only with the greatest difficulty that they can 
withdraw their investment in the enterprise. They furnish also the plans 
of work and the expert direction. The nature of the work is such that it 
is essential that the staff should have a free hand in executing its plans 
and should be responsible to the people for its achievements. It seems 
clear that a governing board composed of three members appointed by the 
governor from the state at large, three members elected by university fac- 
ulties from their own number, and the president, would at least not err 
on the side of giving too great autonomy to the university. It is clear that 
complete autonomy would carry with it the danger of losing touch with 
the university's constituency, while the presence of an equal representation 
from the university and the state would free the faculty permanently from 
the stigma of control by "non-scholar trustees." Those present well know, 
however, that boards of the existing type may show an excellent spirit and 
judgment. 

The internal organization of the university should have reference solely 
to efficiency in teaching and research. The organization should be created 
by the members of the staff by virtue of their sovereign powers within 
the institution. The first natural subdivision of the university is that into 
departments based upon the relations of the fields of knowledge. The 
process of subdivision of subjects and creation of new departments has gone 
too far and must be reversed. Under the old order of things the only way 
for a man of parts to gain recognition and influence which he was capable 
of using, was to become the head of a department or the dean of a college. 
This accounts for the creation of many new departments and schools for 
which there was no need. Administration could be simplified, duplication 
of work, apparatus, books and supplies could be avoided, and a closer 
correlation ,and a better spirit and more stimulus to scholarly work could 
be secured by the creation of larger departments based on close relation- 
ship of subject-matter. 

The staff of such large departments might number ten, twenty or more 
men. In the nature of things, the organization within such a department is 
based upon the personal interest of each member of the staff in the success 
and welfare of the department, and its object should be to place the resources 
of the department in the fullest degree at the command of the student and 
to facilitate research. These things can be secured only where there is 
harmony among the staff and where the ideas of the staff are carried out

in the administration of the department. Harmony of ideals and executive 
representation can be secured only by the election both of new members of 
the staff and of the administrative head of the department. New members 
of staff should be nominated to the president by those who will be their 
colleagues and who are best able to judge of their fitness for their places. 
The president will of course actively share the responsibility of appoint- 
ments. Pronations should be recommended by the chairman and approved 
by a university committee on promotions. 

All important business should be done in staff meetings. The chair- 
man should administer department affairs according to the decisions and by 
the authority of the staff and should represent the staff in relations with 
other departments. Within the department there should be the greatest 
practicable freedom of the individual in teaching and research, together with 
publicity of results. Subdivision of the field covered by the department, 
organization and assignment of work would be done in staff conference. 
Publicity r^arding the number of elective students, percentage of students 
passed and failed, average grades given, research work accomplished, and so 
forth, would furnish opportunity for comparison, friendly rivalry, self- 
criticism and improvement of the work of each teacher. The first step to- 
ward improvement of organization of state universities would be the organ- 
ization of department staffs to bear the responsibilities and to direct the 
work of the department through an elected chairman. The second step 
would be the gradual combination of smaller into larger departments. 

The next important step would be the breaking down of the boundaries 
between colleges on the side of teaching and investigation, making each 
student perfectly free to study where and what he will, subject only to 
the regulations of departments and to the means of gaining his own ends. 
Some present schools and colleges would take again their proper places as 
departments, the others would be dissolved. 

So far as the present colleges serve a useful purpose, their place would 
be taken by faculties for the supervision of professional and degree courses. 
Each such faculty should be made up of representatives of all departments 
which may offer work toward the given degree, such representatives to act 
under instructions from the staffs of their respective departments. These 
faculties should prescribe requirements for entrance and for graduation, but 
should have no control of finances or of appointments. They should exer- 
cise only an advisory function in regard to the election of studies or the 
student's use of his time. Any faculty might, if it was deemed advisable, 
prescribe final examinations over the whole course of study, or the pre- 
sentation of a thesis, and so forth. Thus we should have an A.B. faculty, 
an IX.B. faculty, an M.D. faculty, and so on, each safeguarding the tradi- 
tions which surround its degree or the standards which should be upheld 
in the profession, but each giving full opportunity to the various departments 
to place before the student new materials, methods and ideals ; and giving 
to the student opportunity to try his powers and extend his acquaintance 
beyond the usual limits laid down by the traditions of his degree or his chosen 
profession. This mode of organization would also make it as easy as pos-

sible for the student to change his course in case he found that his choice 
of a profession was unsuited to his individual talents. 

In such an organization the university senate might have somewhat 
enlarged powers and more detailed duties. The administrative functions 
now exercised by the faculties and deans of colleges would in part vanish, 
in larger part be transferred to the several departmental staffs and in part 
devolve upon the senate either in the first instance or through reference 
from departments. The senate would continue to be a court of appeal in 
cases of dispute between faculties or departments. The establishment of 
new degrees or degree-courses would require action of the senate, and 
sweeping changes in any curriculum or the membership of any faculty 
should have the approval of the senate. For example, the university could 
not establish a new school of naval architecture or of mental healing or of 
colonial administration, each leading to its special degree, without the 
sanction of a body representing the whole university. Neither could the 
faculty of arts radically change the character of the course leading to the 
A.B. degree, either by the ingestion or the extrusion of a large group of 
departments, without such action being subject to review by the university 
senate. More need not be said on this phase of the subject. It seems clear 
that with the greater freedom of action on the part of students and de- 
partments, with special faculties laying down regulations for the various 
(iegree-courses, with the elimination of rivalries and strife growing directly 
out of the organization by colleges, the problems of internal correlation and 
control would be greatly simplified and could readily be cared for in a senate 
organized very much as ours is at present. 

Simplification in university work and administration is the crying need 
next to independence and responsibility of the members of the faculty. The 
endless red tape of business administration could be largely done away with 
by the logical completion of the budget system. The budget having been 
made by the governing board, each department should be perfectly free to 
expend its own quota of funds by vote of its staff without supervision or 
approval of anybody — and should be held responsible for the results se- 
cured from year to year. Nobody can know so well how money should be 
expended as the staff who are to use the things purchased, no one knows 
so well where to get things or how to get them promptly when needed, 
none feels so directly and keenly the effects of misuse of money, none will 
so carefully guard its resources as the department itself. The dangers of 
duplication will be set aside by the better correlation of departments already 
suggested. In establishing common storerooms, purchasing agents and the 
like, the first and chief step should be to ask of the members of the staff 
throughout the university, how can the administration help you in your 
work through such agencies as these, instead of thinking how these agencies 
can remove from the departments the ultimate control of their work. Time 
and money may be wasted at a frightful rate through fear to place respon- 
sibility and confidence where they belong — a fear which is well-founded 
on our present system of irresponsible heads of departments.

Simplification in the administration of teaching would be favored by 
the dissolution of the colleges and the setting free of the elective system 
under a few simple regulations as to the combination of elementary and 
advanced courses and of major and cognate work which would be neces- 
sary for an academic degree, and as to the prescribed curriculum in a pro- 
fessional course. What is needed is fewer regulations and better teaching ; 
fewer snap courses, fewer substitutions and special dispensations ; less care 
for the poor student and more food for the good student ; less interest in 
sending forth graduates and more measuring up of students against stand- 
ards of honesty, industry and self-judgment. 

Finally, the presidency. Shall the president be elected by the faculty ? 
Shall his actions be subject to review by the senate? Shall he have a veto 
power over the senate? Shall his duties be limited to those of a gentleman, 
orator and representative of university culture, or to those of the business 
agent and manager? The discussion of these questions seems to the writer 
to be of minor importance. With such a governing board and such an 
internal organization as has been briefly outlined, it can scarcely be doubted 
that the president will be representative of his faculty or that he could se- 
cure intelligent action from the board. Nor would it be difficult for the 
president to be a leader in whatever ways he was fitted for leadership or 
in whatever matters leadership was required. It seems to me that the presi- 
dency should be controlled by imwritten rather than by written laws. What 
is essential is that the university have a strong executive; stroi^ in the 
discovery and application of right principles, strong in his reliance upon the 
consent and the support of the governed and strong in the execution of 
their ideals. The remedy for our evils is not to object to a strong executive, 
but to remove the necessity for an arbitrary executive ; not to cry out for 
anarchy, but to introduce self-government. 

Allow me to recapitulate. Our universities are laboring under a bureau- 
cratic form of government in which the initiative rests chiefly with the 
heads of departments, in which there is a constant struggle for power 
among the bureau heads, in which these same heads are the chief source of 
information and advice to the executive, in which most of the faculty have 
no voice in framing policies, and in which — at its worst — the student is 
concerned only to be counted and the public only to be milked. The ex- 
treme of degradation is reached when research is wholly neglected and 
teaching is regarded as only the excuse for material aggrandizement. The 
bad state of aff^airs which we see every now and then in this or that de- 
partment or college in all our universities cannot be regarded as the free 
choice of any average group of men. I cannot conceive of any of these 
things being voted by members of a staff. These conditions are the result 
of arbitrary power placed in the hands of single men without check or 
publicity. Such a system always breeds dishonesty and crime. The remedy 
is to recognize the primary interest of every member of the staff and to 
establish representative government in the university. On the whole and 
in the long run the combined judgment of the members of the staff of any 
department is sufe to be better than that of any individual. Self-govern-

ment stimulates individual initiative and calls forth ideas for the common 
good. The enjoyment of freedom and responsibility will make of our 
faculty morally strong and practically efficient men, and will call into the 
profession capable men, men robust in intellect and imagination, instead of 
the weaklings who now barter their souls for shelter from the perils of a 
competitive business world. 

It may be true in a legal sense that the state through the board of 
regents now hires the members of the university faculty. But men to do 
university work cannot be hired. Those of the faculties who now do 
university work do it not because they are paid living wages, but because 
they love the work. It has been one oif the great fallacies of human history 
to suppose that workmen can be hired. When you hire or enslave a man 
you secure only mechanical service. The world's work cannot be done by 
hired muscle alone, but requires personal interest, moral character and 
entire manhood. Slaves survive in their pyramids, their temples and their 
papyri, where their masters have perished. The successful and progressive 
civilizations of today are founded on the freedom and self-satisfaction of 
the individual. The most acute problems of modem society arise out of 
the hiring of men to do work which they would much prefer to do for 
themselves and would do better for themselves. These things bear their 
lessons for universities, if we will heed them. Freedom of speech and 
complete self government are necessary to the best interests of a university. 
A whole staff is together more capable than any one man. Suppression of 
staff members who speak without authority of the head is the suppression 
of truth and initiative. It has resulted and must result in the selection of 
weak men for the faculty and in narrowness, bigotry and provincialism in 
the institution. Self-government will draw strong men into the faculty, 
will stimulate initiative, will make possible and encourage progressive ad- 
ministration, and will brii^ to mental endeavor on the part of both student 
and teacher the freshness of the morning air, the pursuit of a goal of one's 
own choosii^, and satisfaction in the achievement of one's ideals.

I0I.1] BACK FROM THE WAR ZONE 31 

BACK FROM THE WAR ZONE 

Many members of the Faculty of the University found themselves 
within the zone of war in Europe on August i when hostilities commenced. 
Though many of them bring back interesting stories of their experiences, 
there were few who were seriously inconvenienced. Many, however, found 
difficulty in obtaining ready cash, and in some cases had to accept steerage 
passage home. Below we print the impressions of a few members of the 
Faculty on their summer experiences. 

Among those who were caught abroad was Eh*. Reuben Peterson, 
who had attended a convention of medical men in his specialty in 
Germany. One of the interesting facts of his stay was the urgent 
warning which he received some time before hostilities commenced 
from some of his medical confreres in Germany. Professor H. P. 
Thieme, of the Department of French, who spent last year in Paris, was 
particularly impressed by the unrest throughout the year in France which 
was quite perceptible as soon as one came into intimate contact with the 
French people. Everywhere an impression that war was impending was 
evident, and there was also an obvious endeavor to enlist the sympathies 
of English-speaking people. Not in the least interesting of the phenomena 
of this period was an evident German propaganda carried on in Paris dur- 
ing the year, not only in business but in literature, art and music, endured, 
but not welcomed by the true Frenchman. 

Professor Thieme was in I.ucerne with his family when the war broke 
out, but was able to reach Paris in time to obtain a comfortable passage 
home. Professor F. N. Scott, who left Ann Arbor early in the summer, 
was in Germany at the outbreak of the war, and returned early in October. 
Professor A. A. Stanley spent practically the whole of the summer in 
England and Scotland. Professor C. H. Van Tyne, who spent last year 
in France as one of the associate lecturers of the American Foundation, 
corroborates Professor Thieme*s impressions. Professor John O. Reed, 
who has been living abroad on account of ill health for the past two years, 
was in Germany at the time the war broke out. He and Mrs. Reed have 
remained, and are now in Jena. Mr. Rene Talamon, instructor in French, 
who was spending his honeymoon this summer in France, was called to the 
front, and is now sous les drapeaux. 

Other members of the Faculty who returned, with interesting accounts 
of their experiences are Registrar A. G. Hall, Professor W. H. Butts, 
Assistant Dean in the Department of Engineering, Professor J. P. Bird, 
Secretary of the Department of Engineering, Dr. F. C. Newcombe, Pro- 
fessor of Botany, Professor and Mrs. J. F. Winter of the Department of 
Greek, H. R. Cross, Professor of Fine Arts, E. R. Turner, Professor of 
History and Mr. F. E. Robbins of the Department of Greek. Professor Wil- 
liam D. Henderson, of the Department of Physics and Mrs. Henderson, and 
Dr. Elsie Seelye Pratt, of the University Health Service. 

Professor Anton Friedrich Greiner, of the Engineering Department, 
who is still a German citizen, was at his home in Germany at the outbreak

of the war. He was fortunate in being able to secure passage on the 
Kaiser Wilhelm, which reached New York after an exciting chase by 
English and French cruisers. While German citizens holding permanent 
positions in this country may not be pressed into service, it is possible that 
if he had not been able to leave, he would have been called upon to serve 
in the army. 

A number of students were touring through Europe, but were able 
to reach home without any serious trouble. Bruce D. Bromley, Pontiac, 
'14, with Edwin C. Wilson, '15, Detroit, had just completed a bicycle trip 
through Belgium and Holland when war was declared, but succeeded in 
reaching Paris, and securing passage. H. Beach Carpenter, '14, *i6/, 
Rockford, 111., and Morris A. Milligan, '14, Bradford, Pa., were in London. 
A party composed of Carlton H. Jenks, '15, Port Huron, Wilbur S. David- 
son, '15, Port Huron, Howard M. Warner, '16, Farmington, and West- 
cott T. Smith, 'i^e, Port Huron, who were touring Europe on their wheels, 
had perhaps the most interesting experience. They were in northern France 
when the war began, and found themselves in danger of being held in 
France while the mobilization of the French army was proceeding, with 
the danger also that they might be suspected of being spies. Retracing their 
steps, they were able to purchase in one of the larger towns, four American 
flags, which they strapped to their handle bars, and after several curious 
experiences, succeeded in clearing the danger zone. Among other students 
abroad were John T. Naylon, 15^, Detroit, and Francis T. Russell, '15, 
Grand Rapids, who was traveling through Europe on his motor cycle. 

Paul Scott Mowrer, 'o5-'o8, has been appointed London correspondent 
for the Chicago Daily Nezvs, going to London from Paris, where he has 
been the French correspondent. Mr. Mowrer had considerable experience 
during the Balkan war, when he reported events at the front. 

Professor Morris P. Tilley, of the English Department, had made all 
preparations to leave for Europe when war was declared, having obtained 
leave of absence for the present year. He now plans to spend the year in 
the east, doing research work in the Hbraries there. 

SOME PERSONAL EXPERIENCES 

Professor James P. Bird 

Note, The following article was written by Professor Bird while en 
route home, and was published in The Detroit Saturday Night for Septem- 
ber 12. He was a member of a party of twelve who found themselves 
at Lucerne, Switzerland, at the outbreak of the war. They left August 11, 
traveling through France, and spent a fortnight in England and Scotland 
before they sailed for Montreal. 

Three days out on the North Atlantic, with a sea too calm to be interest- 
ing even to the most sensitive, and with only a very limited number of Ger- 
man dreadnoughts stationed along the skyline, wars and rumors of wars 
eliminated by a censored wireless, it is difficult indeed to realize that the 
European nightmare is a reality, in spite of what our eyes have seen from 
one end to the other of three nations in the throes of a world war.

I9T4] BACK FROM THE WAR ZONE 33 

When the storm broke, we had just reached Lucerne from Italy, where 
apparently such a thing as a general conflict was not even dreamed of. 
Also at Lucerne, tickets were sold on August i to Amsterdam via Heidel- 
berg or Strassburg. On August 2 the way was closed. It is very significant 
that on July 2J German officers attending, for example, the summer session 
at the University of Neuchatel, and presiunably at other Swiss and at 
French institutions, were ordered home at the beginning of a veiled mo- 
bilization. 

(This was three days before Germany called on Russia to stop fnobilis- 
ing, and four days before she broke off diplomatic relations. — The Editor.) 

Switzerland has been called the nation without a language, a navy or 
an army. A week sufficed to place in the field practically every able-bodied 
man, fully equipped from tip to toe. Every corner, every gateway, every 
public building of Berne had its soldier with bayonet set. Through all the 
principal streets, by night or day, was heard the measured tread of cwn- 
pany after company, off for the frontier accompanied by army trains with 
artillery and stores, leaving only the brave though tearful women, the child- 
ren and the aged to bring in the crops and attend to the business of life. 

Business, for the most part, was at a standstill. All available money 
was needed by the state, so that American travelers' checks could not be 
cashed imder any circumstance. Neither would the suspicious storekeeper 
accept a check for merchandise. The only Swiss with faith undaunted was 
the innkeeper, who would not see us starve and took our checks rather than 
nothing. 

The American consul's office, with two loquacious assistants, was the 
busiest place in town. The invariable advice given was, "Stay where you 
are; it is dangerous to leave; the government is making plans." We stayed 
at Berne six days while the mobilization was going on, then the evening of 
August 1 1 we decided it was get out then or stay all winter, so, armed with 
passports, at 6 the next morning we started our invasion of France via 
Geneva, the only way open. 

We crossed the border at Belgarde, where one poor fellow who had 
left his passport at the hotel, 12 hours away, was sent sorrowfully back. 
The next day the track we had just come over was reported torn up for 
se\'eral miles, while we continued on our long journey of 39 hours to Paris, 
a trip ordinarily made in 12. All the trains of Europe were under govern- 
ment control, and ordinary passengers liable to be set down at any time to 
make room for soldiers. No merchandise of any kind was shipped for 
weeks. Fortunately for us, the mobilization for the moment was north- 
ward, and our greatest inconvenience was the necessity of long stops for 
orders at every station. Added to the uncertainty of continuing our jour- 
ney was the excitement of scores of trains rushing toward the Alsatian 
frontier, a whole train of artillery, for example, then a train of cavalry, 
eight horses, four abreast, facing each other in each tiny four-wheeled box 
car, the men on the straw between them. 

A most interesting thing was to see the trains of wagons and autos of 
every description hurrying to the front. Autos which were not offered were

seized, autobusses and delivery trucks by the hundred from the great grocery 
and dry goods firms of Paris were loaded on promiscuously. 

At Dijon we saw a large detachment of Algerian zouaves, varying in 
complexion from a deep tan to a Higgins eternal shade of black, imported 
from Africa to lend their aid, unwilling aid, it would seem, to the cause of 
their adoptive country. A somewhat parallel case would be the importation 
of Filipino troops to fight with ours in an imaginary struggle against 
Canada. 

We reached Paris late at night, no longer gay Paris, but terribly 
desolate; no taxis at the station, no street car, no autobus running, the 
metro service interrupted since 7 p. m., and all restaurants and cafes closed 
at the same hour. Paris was verily deserted, the majority of the stores 
closed ; as in Switzerland, all able-bodied men between the ages of 19 and 
47 either gone or going in a day or two. 

Can one imagine the grand boulevards at Paris hopelessly deserted be- 
fore 10 p. m., the hour when they are usually just beginning to teem with 
reckless pleasure seekers? On the Rue de Rivoli, one of the busiest thor- 
oughfares, at 9 o'clock there was not a vehicle and hardly a person to be 
seen. This outward calm was indicative of the feeling generally noted. 
The temper of the great city was wonderfully even. Those who had gone, 
had gone with joy, but with no levity, and those who remained were fully 
conscious of the terrible situation. On all sides one heard, "The struggle 
may be long, but in the end we shall utterly crush them." Reports of vio- 
lence and rioting in the French capital were absolutely without truth or 
foundation. Paris was as one from the Faubourg St. Antoine to the Pal- 
ace of the Elysees. 

The French people, as the English people, believe that they are fighting 
for self-preservation; that the only hope for final peace in Europe is the 
annihilation of the military power of Prussia, and they are willing and eager 
to give their lives if need be for the future of Europe. 

The awful fact of a general conflict came home to us fully at Boulogne 
while waiting for a boat to England. The first British troops were arriving 
that night, and for hours the splendid fellows marched by our hotel ; infantry 
and artillery, Scots in their kilts with bagpipes playing, the English in 
khaki, with fife and drum, and bugle corps. 

The reception they had from the French was a rousing one, hand 
clasps exchanged as they hurried on, words of good cheer in a foreign 
toi^ue, from the crowds along the line of march, while now and then one 
braver than the rest would seize and greet a cheering maiden with a re- 
sounding smack. We were thrilled through and through as we thought of 
these thousands going to fight in company with foreigners on foreign soil 
against a common foe; going gladly and singing as they marched along, 
**It's a long, long way to Tipperary." 

Here was visible none of the grim determination seen on the faces and 
heard in the voices of the Swiss and French. At Berne, for example, two or 
three of us about to cross a square where army wagons were standing, 
were met by a levelled bayonet.

**Woiild yon run me through if I passed ?*' said I with a smile. 

*'Ja Wohl/' was the stout reply, with never a smile. Needless to say, 
we didn't pass. 

But beyond the gay exterior of the English lads and of the bonnie 
Scots, no doubt was found the same determination and the same or a greater 
bravery and daring. 

And when we came to England we found, in high places and in low, a 
wonderful display of resolution to do or die. 

The world knows how loyally the men of Britain, from Inverness to 
Land's End, responded to the call to arms. Also the territorials, the local 
militia, thrilled with the same spirit, many — too many of them — men with 
wives and little children, are volunteering. 

Just one example: In old Bannockbum, out of 400 territorials 384 
have left their all of their own free will for their love of the Empire and 
their king. The same, no doubt, is true throughout the United Kingdom. 
They, with the French, have come to feel that the .whole civilized world 
has a common enemy in the present policy of Germany, and that the future 
peace of Europe can be purchased only at the price of thousands and tens 
of thousands of precious lives. Whatever way one's sympathies may ex- 
tend, he is overwhelmed by the patriotism and bravery of these splendid 
fellows, who dare to die that liberty may live. 

Professor C H. Van Tyne 

Like an obedient slave of the lamp when the editor of The Alumnus 
commands, I hear and obey. He says I am a refugee, and must tell such of 
my experiences as will throw light on the present war problem. The 
most vivid of my impressions on escaping from war-torn Europe is the 
sense of relief from the terrible depression which hangs over one even in 
England. There you cannot escape the awful fascination of it. In London 
the newsboys din it in your ears. At night the seach lights sweep the skies 
in search for Zeppelins and aeroplanes. On every square and in every 
park the new recruits are being drilled. Take an express from London to 
the sea, and you will be hurried past camp after camp, where cavalry and 
artillery go through ceaseless evolutions. If you enter prohibited areas 
you must show your alien papers. Even the magic word American does 
not save you. At the seaside you see the transports gather in the 
evening, chaperoned by a destroyer or a submarine and in the morning they 
have flown. In a few days the red cross ships begin to come in and then 
the papers give out the thrilling stories told by the wounded soldiers in 
the hospitals. At night the harbor is swept by the ominous rays of the 
search lights. Rimior too is always busy with stories of mines sown just 
off the harbor, of the periscope of a German submarine seen by a fishing 
boat, or of a Zeppelin preying upon ships in the channel. There is no escape, 
no respite. You read, think, dream war, and the sense of depression grows 
from day to day. All the horrors of it are not 150 miles from you and the 
spirits are weighed down by its proximity. 

The chief thing that my personal experience in Europe during this last 
year enables me to say about the war is that it was brooding over Europe

every moment of that time. When I first arrived, the French and German 
papers were bitterly attacking each other on the subject of the French 
"foreign legion." France was accused of abusing the German soldiers in 
it, and French papers indignantly denied 'every allegation. Then came the 
indiscreet speech of the Greek king, ascribing Greek military success to 
German training. As French officers had trained them, the Gallic press was 
in a rage, and the German journals aroused and taunted it as they well 
knew how. Then came the Saveme affair in Alsace-Lorraine, and nation- 
al hate was displayed to its utmost. Then a German paper accused Russia 
of hastening its preparation for war, which Russian papers denied, and 
French papers criticized the German war mania. Threats and menaces were 
hurled back and forth across the borders, and an outsider could see that 
international nerves were at a very high tension. And yet men went on 
hugging that old delusion that peace was secure because of the great arma- 
ments, and because the interlacing of industrial, economic and financial 
bonds made war unthinkable! Yet all that was needed was the murder of 
the Grand Duke, the. insane folly of Austria, a War Lord too arrogant to 
exercise the necessary international amenities, and the world was in the 
midst of the supreme tragedy of all the ages. 

A year in France convinced me that Frenchmen did not want war. 
While giving the Harvard Foimdation lectures in the French provincial 
universities, I visited nearly every part of France. I talked not only with 
academic men, but with shopkeepers, workmen, with everybody who would 
listen to my wretched French, and the universal answer to my query as to 
whether France wished a war of revenge for the loss of Alsace-Lorraine 
was "No." The only reservation was that if France should be dragged into 
war the lost provinces must be regained. Newspaper and periodicaJ litera- 
ture revealed the same attitude. War was too dreadful to be ventured upon 
for revenge and after all a nation cannot live to avenge the wrongs of a 
former generation. The universal desire was for peace, for disarmament 
if possible, since the burden of preparation for war was becoming unbear- 
able in France. In fact, I am convinced that if war was inevitable in the 
near future it was the greatest fortune for France that it came just at the 
moment when her efforts had reached the maximum, before she was com- 
pelled by sheer economic exhaustion to abandon the race for military super- 
iority. 

The returning traveller feels more than ever the blessing of being an 
American. Complain as we will of taxation, we know nothing of its burdens. 
No war cloud hangs in our sun-lit skies. Such enemies as we have are too 
remote to touch our imaginations. Neither grinding taxes, nor sickening 
fear, nor consuming hate stain the pure happiness of American life. 

Professor William H. Butts 

The story of a quiet trip to France and Spain on the eve of war, the 
rude shock of nations and the panic of the first month of hostilities are not 
easily described in a few words. The only suggestion of war on the steamer 
New York on her trip to Cherbourg was the unloading of three millions 
O'f American gold and two millions of silver to enrich the war chest of

France. While driving to our hotel in Paris we saw a beautiful French 
dirigible floating gracefully over the city in the morning mist but we thought 
of art and beauty, not of war. Monoplanes and biplanes, seen at Chartres 
and in the Chateaux region along the Loire, only aroused wonder and ad- 
miration. The chateaux at Blois, Chambord, Chenonceau, Amboise and 
Tours recalled the conflicts of knights and kings but did not suggest prepara- 
tions to resist modem guns and explosives dropped from heaven. Even in 
this garden-spot of France along the Loire, with its bountiful harvests and 
fruitful vines, everyone complained of excessive taxes and prayed for the 
return of their soldier boys to the farm and the home. Nowhere in France, 
not even in Paris, did we hear the cry "On to Strassburg!" The govern- 
ment and the people apparently had no desire for war. Stopping a day at 
Bordeaux, we were surprised to find a wonderfif! port of entry and a most 
prosperous city, very much like Hamburg in Germany. We little thought 
that within a month this home of the Girondins would be the capital of France 
and the depository of all the gold of the Paris banks. With its modern 
forts and its harbor filled with ships, it is an ideal place of refuge. 

After stopping a day at Biarritz, the premier bathing beach of France, 
we wound our way into the Pyrenees, along a rushing river to the city of 
Lourdes, surpassing in its climate and beautiful setting any city in the 
lower Alps. The first evening we saw a procession of five thousand French 
pilgrims carrying long candles and chanting as they mounted the long, 
winding terrace to the basilica and descended to the beautiful statue of the 
Madonna of Lourdes resplendent with electric lights. With a star-spangled 
background and a gigantic cross on the mountain outlined with powerful 
electric lights, the scene was one never to be forgotten. The second night 
two thousand German pilgrims formed a similar procession, chanting in 
Latin and singing in German. More reserved and dignified in their move- 
ments but not so light hearted, they were Teutonic and not Celtic even in 
religious rites. All drank the healing waters and made their act of contri- 
tion in the same sacred stream but the miraculous cure of warring souls 
was not to be accomplished. 

Our month in Spain from San Sebastian through Burgos and Madrid 
to Granada and back through Valencia to Barcelona was a continuous 
panorama of Spanish and Moorish art and life. We enjoyed the beach 
and sea food at San Sebastian, were overpowered by the grandeur of the 
Burgos cathedral and greatly instructed by studying the wonderful Roman 
aqueduct at Segovia. In Madrid the Prado art gallery impressed us more 
than the louvre or any Italian gallery. The grouping of the masterpieces 
of Murillo, Velasquez, Goya and Titian has no equal. This one gallery is 
worth a trip to Spain. The bull fight in Madrid on a Sunday afternoon 
gave a view of thousands of Spaniards enjoying their national sport, which 
impressed us as superior to football as an exhibition of athletic training and 
dexterity but aroused sympathy for the helpless horses blinded and pushed 
before the enfuriated bulls only to be gored and killed while the riders 
stabbed the bulls in the shoulder and fell awkwardly in the arena. This 
bloody sport is all that remains of the tourney of the Dark Ages and is

losing caste with the educated but is demanded by the lower classes. It 
does not seem to make the people cruel or blood-thirsty but acts as a safety 
valve as football does in America. 

In our visit to Toledo, the Spanish Rome on its picturesque hills sur- 
rounded by the yellow Tagiis, we were struck with the maze of winding 
streets so complex that Baedeker could not secure an accurate map of the 
city. Herds of goats and sometimes cows often blocked our way as they 
were driven from door to door delivering milk directly to the housewives. 
In many cities is this delivered from the producer direct to the consumer. 
Thirty miles from Madrid we saw the Escorial, a gigantic stone structure 
of doubtful taste but blending harmoniously with the bleak sierras, — ^a con- 
vent, palace and burial place of kings. The young king never willingly 
visits this pantheon of his ancestors where only one sarcophagus remains 
without its royal tenant. Many besides the king fear that this portends the 
fall of royalty. 

From Madrid to Cordova is a dreary succession of tawny plains and 
nKDuntains covered with ripened grain, relieved at time^ by olive groves but 
otherwise destitute of trees or foliage. The view gets on our nerves and we 
long for trees. The primitive method of threshing the grain by lawn- 
rollers drawn by mules over level areas of even-baked clay, illustrates the 
fact that Spain is a century behind the times in agriculture. The Spaniard 
loves his ease and has little initiative. The French and Belgians own and 
operate the railroads and mines. In Seville we dreaded the temperature 
of 130° in the shade but were comfortable even here In fact, Spain was 
more comfortable than Ann Arbor, owing largely to the dry air, narrow 
streets and thick stone walls of the buildings. In Granada the Alhambra 
on a lofty hill covered with English elms, seemed to us a paradise. The 
noble elms planted by Wellington form a fitting background for the per- 
fection of Moorish art in the Alhambra. A more delightful spot to spend 
a nK)nth in midsummer could not be found. Along eastern Spain from 
Malaga to Barcelona the vineyards and groves of olive, orange and lemon 
trees formed a beautiful foreground for the blue Mediterranean with its 
countless fishing boats. 

Barcelona is the Manchester of Spain with half a million people. We 
found more extensive and finer boulevards than those of Madrid, more 
business and finer views. Here the war broke out and foreign paper ^as 
worthless. Fortunately we engaged the last cabin on the Spanish boat 
sailing for New York September 25. After vainly cabling for cash and 
visiting banks for ten days without success our stateroom was to be for- 
feited when an old Porto Rican friend telegraphed credit from his home in 
Mallorca, giving us pesetas for our return voyage. On August i the gov- 
ernment issued the moratorium by which banks could limit payments to five 
per cent, of deposits. 

In our return voyage our German passengers dropped off at Malaga 
and went by rail to Cadiz to escape capture at Gibraltar where a British 
cruiser chased us until our captain gave assurance that we had no Germans 
on board. On entering New York harbor we agreed with Chauncey Depew

who arrived two days earlier. He remarked that he never expected to go 
to heaven but New York was good enough for him. On landing we met 
Bruce Bromley who related the blood-airdling escapes of four Ann Arbor 
students. Two lost their motorcycles and bags near Paris when a crowd 
seized them as German spies and were on the point of shooting them when 
the mayor of the town came to their rescue. Taken all into consideration, 
our trips to Europe were more Jhan usually interesting and exciting. We 
are duly thankful for all our blessings. 

Professor Arthur G. Hall 

Our delightful vacation tour through the British Isles this summer 
was so devoid of spectacular inconveniences that an account of it will seem 
comparatively tame. In company with Professor Elmer E. Powell, (Mich- 
igan, 1885) and his wife and daughter, of Miami University, Mrs. Hall and 
I sailed from Montreal on June 23 and landed in Liverpool on July 4. 
There^Dr. Powell bought an American car. Indeed it seemed that one 
fourth of the cars we met were of American make. The itinerary of our 
two-thousand mile tour, which we carried out as originally planned, was 
briefly as follows: Through Chester and North Wales to Carnarvon and 
back, the Lake District, Scotland, the Cathedral towns, Cambridge and 
Oxford, the Wye valley, northern and southern Devon, and Salisbury and 
the New Forest, followed by a week in London. 

The papers brought aboard by the Liverpool pilot announced the as- 
sassination of the Archduke of Austria. The papers at Cambridge con- 
tained the news of the Austro-Servian trouble. From that time the situ- 
ation on the Continent developed rapidly. The extention for three days of 
the bank holidays, followed by the issue of the crude looking one-pound and 
ten-shilling notes and by other governmental measures completely averted 
a financial panic, and our travellers* checks were good everywhere for face 
value. So too the prompt action of the government Board of Trade kept 
prices normal and prevented extortion. Once when our gasoline supply 
gave out near Salisbury, we paid double price to a passing taxi-cab driver ; 
but such incidents occur where there is no war. 

In several cities near military depots we offered to register as aliens, 
but were informed that as Americans we were welcome to go where we 
pleased. Of course we avoided approaching the military camps on Salis- 
bury Plain and similar places where a foreigner had no business to be. We 
saw little of the war excepting the gathering and marching of troops and 
the sentries at railway bridges. The Britons made it a matter of principle 
to let ordinary affairs go on as usual. This does not mean that they took 
matters lightly: their serious determination was not to be mistaken. In 
London we registered with the American committee at the Savoy Hotel 
and found a Michigan alumnus. Dr. L. C. Bacon, 'gom, of St. Paul, at the 
desk. The important and efficient work of this committee cannot be too 
highly commended throughout America. It was fully recognized in Eng- 
land. For instance The Times gave several columns to it each morning.

40 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [October 

We sailed from London, or rather Tilbury, on August 21, anchoring 
that night off Sheemess under the guns and searchlights of the battle- 
ships there, and similarly off Plymouth the following night. Our vessel 
carried no freight and the consequent lively motion aggravated attacks of 
seasickness. Four six inch gims mounted on deck served to reassure (?) the 
fearful. We were in continual wireless communication with a British 
cruiser but saw no warships of any sort on the ocean. Our ship was 
filled with passengers, but all the accommodations were as comfortable and 
pleasant as in times of peace. Save for the nervous tension everything went 
as usual. Thus with this exception, we have only the pleasantest memories 
of our simimer's outing. 

Professor Henry C, Adams 

A letter from Professor H. C. Adams, to President Hutchins, dated 
August 16, at Peking, China, announces that the Adams family will sail for 
home from Yokahama on September 26. The war in Europe caused them 
to change their plans r^^rding the return through Europe, and a stay of 
some months in Germany for observations and research in political economy. 

The letter told of the satisfactory termination of Professor Adams' 
work as a member of the Commission for the unification of the railway 
accounts and statistics of the Ministry of Communication, Mr. Adams hav- 
ing been appointed to this Commission nearly two years ago by the Chinese 
government. In part the letter reads as follows: 

"This war has broken entirely my program of travel for which the 
Regents gave me an additional one-half year's leave of absence. While I 
could go through India, perhaps, with some degree of safety, I do not feel 
warranted in returning via Europe. I might go to Manila, but if the Japs 
are going to take a hand in the game, as seems probable from the ultimatum 
just sent to Germany, every mile that brings me nearer to the Pacific 
coast will be a relief. 

"Should the situation change during the next two or three weeks I 
may yet carry out my original plan, but that is not likely, and I have wired 
for accommodations to carry me home from Yokahama on the 26th of 
September. 

"This is the second time that the Adams family has started up an 
international war by moving out of the country. We were in Berlin when 
the Spanish-American war broke out. 

"The boys arrived safely a week ago, and are seeing the sights of the 
city. Their trip has been well worth while, and I am impressed anew with 
.ne fact that there are many kinds of an education beside that given by a 
university. 

"For myself, the work that I came to do is finished, and seems to have 
met with favor, for in the reorganization of the Ministry of Communica- 
tion it has been made the cornerstone of one of the seven divisions into 
which the ministry is divided. Rather strong inducements have been 
offered to lead me to return for three or four months two years from 
now, which will be the critical period for this entire experiment, but I said 
I could make no promise till I had been home."

MICHIGAN 58; DE PAUW 

Early-season predictions that the 1914 
team would be one of the best which Yost 
has ever given Michig^, were seemingly 
fulfilled in the first game of the season on 
September 30, when the Wolverines over- 
whelmed the eleven from De Pauw Uni- 
versity by the score of 58 to o. 

In this game, which was watched by a 
crowd of over 5,000, the Varsity's backs 
were able to gain nearly at will through the 
defense which the Saturday before had 
held Indiana University to a 13 to 6 score. 
As is customary in early games on Ferry 
Field, Quarterback Hughitt had but a 
small repertoire of plays to use, but every 
one of them proved effective. Yost sent 
in three complete sets of backs, and the 
substitute combinations proved nearly as 
capable as their predecessors in gaming 
ground. 

Although Coach Yost started his train- 
ing season this fall with four "M'* wearers 
for his backfield, there was just one letter 
man in the team which went onto the field 
to start the game. This man was Ernest 
"Tommy" Hughitt, the quarterback. Two 
sophomores, Maulbetsch and Splawn, and 
a 1913 substitute, Bastian, composed the 
trio of backs. Gait would ordinarily have 
been in Bastian's place had it not been for 
his injured knee, which again threatens to 
impair his effectiveness as ati exceptionally 
good half back. Catlett, an ''M" man, got 
into the battle before it was over and did 
good work. Bushnell, the other letter man, 
sat on the sidelines with an injured foot. 

Michigan carried the ball during prac- 
tically the whole game, and the battle was 
a series of dashes toward successive Wol- 
verine touchdowns. In one instance it re- 
quired but a single play to negotiate the 
6 points. Hughitt had carried the kick-off 
back past the middle of the field. Then 
he called on Splawn for a forward pass, 
the ball going squarely into the waiting 
arms of right end Lyons, who went over 
for a touchdown and a 45-yard gain. It 
was the only successful forward pass of 
the game, the remainder of Michigan's ef- 
forts missing narrowly, while De Pauw's 
all went sadly amiss. 

Maulbetsch made two of the touchdowns 
on short plunges through the line, missing 
a third when he jammed the b^ up against

an upright instead of past it. This young 
player, who has been the idol of Michigan 
men since the day when he started to play 
football for the Ann Arbor High School, 
showed great promise as a plunger and as 
a defensive player. Siplawn, the dther 
sophomore in the backfield, considered the 
best young kicker ever on Ferry Field, 
punted for long Wolverine gains, and also

Other changes provide for the use of a 
field judge in the bigger games, the keep- 
ing absolutely clear of the neutral zone 
between the forward lines of the opposing 
teams, the prohibition of the grounding of 
a forward pass when it seems about to be 
unsuccessful and to result in a loss of 
ground, and the stopping of the play which 
allows of the hiding of a player along the 
sidelines. 

It is not expected that the style of the 
game at present played, will be materi- 
ally changed as a result of these few 
changes, but that they will have the further 
effect of simplifying the general type of 
play and will make the rules more intelli-

plan. While intended to prevent as far as 
possible the direction of the play on the 
field by the coach, the coaches themselves 
believe this change will have but little 
eflFect. Play can still possibly be directed 
by the sending in of substitutes, but it will 
make necessary the planning of a more 
complex system of signals if the coach 
should still desire to have any large share 
in the direction of the play. 

The other change will allow of more 
effective work in the blocking of kicks, in 
that it permits of the kicker's being touched 
after the kick, although it is left with the 
officials to keep this play from becoming 
rough. It is expected that the players will

Ann Arbcr, Mich., July 14, 1914. 

To the Honorable Board of Kegcnts; 
Gentlemen : 

Finding that I cannot properly provide for a 
large number of useful and valuable surgical in- 
struments, may I beg their acceptance by the 
University Hospital, where I trust that they will 
prove as serviceable in the future as they have in 
the past. Although not capable of being sold for 
any such amount, originally they cost about 
$1,000, and would require this sum to duplicate 
them. 

Very truly, 

C. B. G. de NANCREDE.

A LETTER TO THE ALUMNUS 

Worcester, Mass., September 15, 1914. 
General Secretary, 

The Alumni Association, 
Ann Arbor, Michigan. 
Dear Sir:— 

I trust that you will allow an individual 
suggestion from a Michigan man and an 
Easterner, one who is doubly interested in 
the coming Michigan-Harvard football 
game, and place this communication before 
the proper parties to act upon as they see 
fit. 

It is as to cheering and singing at the 
game. I understand that the Michigan 
band is well organized and will be present 
at the game, which fact will doubtless aid 
the singing. I hope that well trained cheer 
leaders will also come on. I think that the 
Eastern alumni will give a good account 
of themselves, if so led. 

Having attended a number of games in 
the Harvard Stadium, I have been struck 
with its acoustic properties. A long drawn 
out cheer does not "go" so well, in my 
opinion, as the short snappy one. The 
high walls and seats cause an echo and 
the result is that the last part of a cheer 
is apt to greet the first part coming back. 
I have noticed, too, that people sitting on 
the side of the cheering in that vast stadi- 
um cannot hear the words distinctly if 
drawn out and in getting the echo back, a 
confusion of sound is likely to result. Of 
course the spectators opposite the cheering 
are not so troubled. The short snappy 
cheering of Ohio State on Ferry Field 
has always made a good impression on 
my memory, lasting longer perhaps thaii 
my remembrances of the games themselves. 
The Harvard cheer is long drawn out and 
their music always seemed to me to be 
slow moving. 

The interest throughout the East in the 
game is increasing rapidly. I have no 
doubt the game will outdraw the Harvard- 
Princeton game the following Saturday on

the same field. Among the 40,000, which 
can be seated the vast majority will be 
Harvard sympathizers and also "neutral" 
Easterners. The latter will appreciate a 
good game and will be willing to be shown. 
A fighting team, backed by an enthusiastic 
bundi of alumni and students, no matter 
how small in number, will create a favor- 
able impression, irrespective of the final 
outcome of the game. 

I do not for a minute want to abolish 
any of the old Michigan songs and cheers, 
but I would like to hear in addition some 
snappy ones, written if necessary for the 
occasion and printed for distribution to 
alumni associations so that the memories 
of the old may be refreshed and the new 
ones learned for this game. I do not need 
to state that the Eastern alumni will ac- 
cord an enthusiastic greeting. 

Camp has lately written that the game, 
this Pall, will settle the year's champion- 
ship, but that it will not in one game de- 
cide the merits of the Eastern and West- 
em football. Pretty fair for a Yale man. 
Harvard in its prospects and material is 
the best in years, but we have faith in 
Yost and a Michigan team. 

Sincerely yours, 
Merrili. S. June, '12/. 

A CHICAGO MID-SUMMER OUTING 

Story of How Chicago's Michigan Men 

Disported Themselves at Their Annual 

Picnic. 

"Soak 'em. John !" 

•*BAWL TUH!" 

— And John got his base on balls — some- 
times. And sometimes he landed on the 
big armory ball for a home run. Where- 
upon his teammates, old boys and young- 
uns, howled with delight as John's corpu- 
lent person galloped and puffed across the 
home plate. 

It was the big ball game between the 
"Germans" and the "Russians" at the an- 
nual midsummer outing of the Chicago 
Alumni Association of the University of 
Michigan. 

"The Time — Saturday Afternoon, Au- 
gust 29. 

"The Place— Ravinia Park, Chicago. 

**The Girl — Merrie Michigan" — was the 
way the event was announced in the Chica- 
go "Michigan Bulletin." 

And that afternoon there was a mobili- 
zation of Michigan men for the park. Men 
with downy moustaches and men old and 
shrewd in the game of the "wide, wide 
world" left their labors and gathered to 
have fun together like boys again. They 
loafed, loitered, lingered and leaped. They 
talked war and played baseball. They har- 
monized and melodized and yelled the old 



yells once more, with "Bony" Bohnsack as 
leader. 

The features of the day were the two 
bloody battles between the Germans and the 
Russians on the beautiful baseball field be- 
fore the stadium. For the first game the 
"chose up" line-up was as follows: Rus- 
sians — "Smi" Smith, *ii (Capt.) ; Drake, 
Curtis, Reighard, Roth, Hoover, Reisser, 
Kolyn, Supple. 

Germans — McKenzie, '96 (Capt.) ; Lunn, 
Bohnsack, David, Eckhard, Haller, Heck- 
ler, Newmarke, Small. 

The Deutschers won by a score of 8 to 4. 
Umpires — Dr. H. S. Eisenstaedt, and I. K. 
Pond. Errors, 78. 

Second Battle: Russians — David (Capt.) 
Martin, Davis, Hoover, Hoffman, W. Gal- 
loway, Towler, Adams, Roth. 

Germans — Bohnsack (Capt) ; O'Connor, 
Drake, Lunn, J. Galloway, Chadwick, Mar- 
tin, Green, Kolyn, Eckhart. 

The dead were 11 to 7, in favor of the 
Germans. 

At the banquet out under the trees by 
the casino in the evening Capt. Art Bohn- 
sack was presented with a "silver loving 
cup" in honor of his valiant work in the 
battles of the afternoon. The "cup" was 
a bright tin horn. 

About 125 Michigan men were present 
at the outing, and many brought their 
wives, children, friends or fiancees. The 
oldest grad present was Bartow A. Ulrich, 
'64. The afternoon symphony concert by 
the Chicago Symphony orchestra and the 
opera, Lucia di Lammermoor, in the even- 
ing given in the open-air auditorium, were 
the main free attractions. All the good old 
songs in the Michigan Union song books, 
a snake dance, and a prolonged mouth or- 
gan and tin horn concert, very ably led by 
Mr. L K. Pond, '79^, succeeded the dinner. 

Anyway, they all went home with brain 
and brawn renewed. Everybody was hap- 
py and had the smile that wouldn't come 
of? for 'twas all the way through. 

A. E. Curtis, 'ii. 

CHICAGO 

In an effort to get directly in touch with 
the new graduates of the University who 
locate in Chicago, furnish them with in- 
formation concerning the city and help 
them in any way possible, the Chicago 
Alumni Association of the University will 
establish this year an employment commit- 
tee, consisting of Michigan men who are 
representative in their professions and lines 
of business. It is planned to centralize 
the work of the committee in a secretary, 
who will act, first, as a clearing house for 
the employer and employee; and second, as 
the organizing point through which the 
work of the committee can be broadened

PORTO RICO ALUMNI ENTERTAIN 
DR. NOW 

A royal reception was extended to Dr. 
Novy and family on the occasion of his 
visit to Porto Rico this summer. As the 
steamer was being warped in its berth it 
was boarded by a Committee of the Asso- 
ciation, consisting of Dr. M. Del Valle, 
'gid, Dr. E. DeGoenaga, 'oSd, R. Del Valle, 
*oid^ B^. (Phar. hon.) '07 Buenaventura 
Jimmez, 'o5*w, and M. Del Valle, *i6i?. In 
the name of the Association Dr. Novy was 
welcomed to the Island and presented with 
an engrossed copy of Resolutions adopted 
by the Porto Rican Branch of Michigan 
Alumni. 

The Porto Rico branch of the Alumni 
Association of the University of Michi- 
gan, desiring to do honor to Dr. Fred G. 
Novy, Professor at the University of Mich- 
igan, on his proposed trip to Porto Rico, 
passed the following resolutions at a meet- 
ing held June 11, T914. 

Be it resolved, that on the occasion of 
the visit of Dr. Fred 0. Novy, of the fac- 
ulty of the University of Michigan, to the 
Island of Porto Rico that the members of 
the Porto Rican branch of the Alumni As- 
sociation of the University of Michigan, do 
extend to him a most hearty greeting and 
welcome to our Island, and assure him of 
our great pleasure for the opportunity of 
welcoming him, not only as a man of world 
wide reputation as a scientist, but also as 
a member of the faculty and representative 
of the University of Michigan, our well 
loved Alma Mater. 

Be it also resolved, that the members of 
this association, both individually and col- 
lectively, do place ourselves at the disposal 
of Dr. Novy, in whatever way may be pos- 
sible, in order that his stay here may be 
as pleasant as possible, and that he may 
see that the spirit of Michigan, transferred 
to a tropic island, remains always the same. 
Manuel V. Del Valle, rf'91, 

President 
Jose E. Benedicto, 

Secretary. 
San Juan, Porto Rico, August, 1914. 

The Committee kindly placed their auto- 
mobiles at the service of the party which 
was then transported to Rio Piedras eight 
miles from San Juan, where they took up 
their stay as guests of Dean R. S. Gar- 
wood, '92, and Juanita Garza Garwood. 
Mr. Garwood, then Dean of the normal 
school at Rio Piedras, is now performing 



the duties of Dean of the Agricultural Col- 
lege at Mayaguez. 

On the following day Drs. Del Valle and 
De Goenaga arranged a delightful auto 
trip via Catanio, liayamon to Camerio. 

On August 20, a dinner was tendered Dr. 
Xovy at the Union Club, by the Asociacion 
Medica de Puerta Rico. It was attended 
by about 20 of the foremost practitioners 
of the Island, telegrams of regret being 
sent by many unable to be present. It was 
presided over by Dr. Bailey K. Ash ford, 
U. S. Medical Corps, who called upon Dr. 
Gutierrez Igaravidez to give the address 
of welcome to which a response was made 
by Dr. Novy. 

The following evening an informal re- 
ception and smoker was held at the Club 
Rooms of the Asociacion Medica. 

Subsequently, a most profitable visit was 
made to the Institute for Tropical Medi- 
cine where valuable research is conducted 
by Drs. Gonzales, Gutierrez, Ashford, King 
and others. The excellent bacteriological 
laboratory of the Board of Health is con- 
ducted by Drs. Gonzales and Hernandez, 
the latter a former student in the Medical 
Department of the University in i900-*oi. 
The entire governmental chemical work on 
the Island is under the charge of Raphael 
Del Valle, 'oip, B.S. (Phar. hon.) '07, and 
Angel M. Pesquera, Ph.C. '11. 

In company with Dr. Lippett, Director 
of Public Health, and Dr. Gomez Briosa 
a visit was made to the leper island. 

Through the extreme courtesy of Dr. 
Ashford an auto trip was taken via Catanio, 
Bayamon. Arecibo to Utuado in the coffee 
country, the scene of an extensive anti- 
hookworm campaign. 

The Alumni Association further arrang- 
ed an auto trip for Dr. Novy and family 
across the Island, via Gaguas, Cayey, Guay- 
ma, Salinas to Ponce, thence returning via 
Coamo Springs, Coamo, Aibonito and 
Cayey. Drs. De Croenaga and M. Del Valle 
were the efficient guides on this long and 
most interesting ride. 

On August 28, the evening before sail- 
ing, the Alumni Association tendered a 
banquet to Dr. Novy at the Cafe Cova- 
donga. Those present were: 

Manuel V. del Valle, *9»<i; Estaban A. dc

IQ14, at the Hotel Osburn. It is conceded 
to have been the best and most enthusiastic 
that the local association has ever held.

oughly enjoyed the dinner, after which the 
annual election was held, resulting in the 
election of the following officers for the 
ensuing year: President, Earl O. Immel,

interesting facts and bits of information 
regarding "The Faculty,'* and Jay L. Lew-

by some interesting "Memories of College 
Days." Mrs. Rose E. Powell, School of 
Music, '02, responded with some beautifully 
rendered song^s, and Mrs. Mabel Holmes

ant talk on "Michigan and the West.'* 
General William H. H. Beadle, '61, '67/, 
LLD. '02, one of the most enthusiastic of 
Michigan's oldest graduates, responded to 
"Michigan — ^Always and Everywhere." The 
college songs, led by Mrs. Rose Powell at 
the piano, served to revive and renew the 
memories of college days. 

The local association has a membership 
of over thirty and is very energetic and 
enthusiastic, in spite of the great distance 
that separates its members from the scenes 
of their college life.

BOOK REVIEWS 

The Alumnus reviews recently published works by alumni, former students, or members of the 
Faculty, and works directly relatmg to the University. Copies of such books, sent for review, are 
placed in the Alumni Library in the Alumni Room. 



BOOK AND MAGAZINE NOTES 

Theodore W. Koch, Librarian of the Un- 
iversity, is the author of several pamphlets 
which have appeared during the summer. 
Two papers on *The Bibliotheque Nation- 
ale/' the first dealing with its organization 
and history, and the second with its ad- 
ministration, have been reprinted from 
The Library Journal for May and June, 
1914, and are published together. The Au- 
gust number of The North American Re- 
view contained an article, "Some Old-Time 
Old-World Librarians," which has since 
been reprinted in pamphlet form, and in 
the Library Journal for August, 1914, was 
published his account of the Leipzig Expo- 
sition and the opening of the A. L. A. ex- 
hibit, of which Mr. Koch had charge. This 
has been recently published under the title 
"Impressions of the Leipzig Exposition and 
the Opening of the A. L. A. Exhibit." The 
pamphlet is printed on plate paper and il- 
lustrated with numerous photographs. 

Professor W. T. Hussey. Professor of 
Astronomy and Director of the Observa- 
tory', who spends half the year at La Plata 
University in South America, has recently 
published a report of his astronomical work 
at La Plata. In addition to a detailed ac- 
count of the two himdred double stars 
lately discovered, the booklet describes in 
general the work done at the institution, 
and the experimental work of Paul T. 
Delavan, *i2r, and B. F. Dawson, who have 
been at La Plata for some time. Professor 
Hussey has been in Ann Arbor during part 
of the past year, but returned to La Plata 
in lune. 



Dr. Edgar Ewing Brandon, '88, Vice- 
President of Miami University, wrote for 
the July number of "The Journal of Race 
Development" a paper entitled "Higher Ed- 
ucation in Latin America," in which he dis- 
cusses the facilities, equipment, organiza- 
tion and teachers of the principal Latin- 
American colleges and universities. The 
article has since been reprinted in pamphlet 
form. 



Peter W. Dykema, '95, M.L. '96. Profes- 
sor of Community Music at the University 
of Wisconsin, is the editor of the Music 
Supervisor's Bulletin, published four times 
a year by the National Conference of Mu- 
sic Supervisors. He is also vice-president 
of the association. 



Glenn Palmer. '10, formerly an instruc- 
tor in the rhetoric department of the Uni- 
versity, is on the staff of The Cornhill 
Booklet, of Boston, which has recently been 
revived. The magazine was originated in 
1900 by Mr. Alfred Bartlett, and in its five 
years of existence published uncollected 
writings of Robert Louis Stevenson, Na- 
thaniel Hawthorne, Oliver Wendell Holmes, 
Eugene Field and Rudyard Kipling. The 
new Cornhill Booklet is to contain letters 
and uncollected writings of well-known au- 
thors, with comment and illustrations. In 
the October number, besides a story by 
Mr. Palmer, are found unpublished frag- 
ments of Oscar Wilde's De Profundis, an 
uncollected poem by Leigh Hunt, and a 
poem by Percy Mackaye. For future is- 
sues, uncollected writings from the pens 
of Thackeray, Stevenson, Synge, Maeter- 
linck, Arthur Upson, Arthur Simons, and 
Walter Savage Landor are announced. 



The August number of Case and Com- 
mcnt, published by the Lawyers Co-op. Pub- 
lishing Co., contains three articles by alum- 
ni of the University. Alvin Waggoner, 
'06/, of Philip, S. Dak., writes on "Oliver 
Goldsmith's Relation to the Law;" Ken- 
neth G. Silliman, '12/, of Sioux City, la., 
is the author of an article entitled "Scott 
and the Lawyer;" and Marshall D. Ewell, 
'68/, LL.D. '79, of Chicago, well known as 
a handwriting expert, contributes "Expert 
Examination of Ink Marks on Paper." 

William Warner Bishop, '92, A.M. '93. 
Superintendent of the Reading Room of 
the Library of Congress is the author of a 
pamphlet entitled "The Backs of Books." 
which was delivered originally as the Com- 
mencement address at the exercises of the 
Library School of the New York Public 
Library on June 12, 1914. 



Lieut. Thomas M. Spaulding, '05, of the 
United States Army, wrote for a recent is- 
sue of The Sezvanee Review a description 
of "The Battle of North Point." one of 
the little known contests of the War of 
1812. 



Leonard Lanson Cline, 'io-'i3, has re- 
cently issued a book of verse, entitled,

mented on. It was brought out by The

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November 



This increasing at- 
SOME PROBLEMS tendance, particular- 
THEY BRING ly marked during the 
last few years, is 
bringing problems which • present 
themselves with equal insistence to the 
Regents, the Faculty and the alumni. 
There is certainly some foundation 
for the feeling that we are growing 
too rapidly to permit of correspond- 
ing internal development. But it is 
a satisfaction to feel that this growth 
is healthy, even though it brings cer- 
tain hardships alike to Faculty and 
students, owing to the form of the 
University's organization, and to the 
absolute necessity of a budget pre- 
pared the previous year. Certain 
courses are inevitably disorganized 
at the beginning of each year. 
Temporary quarters have to be pre- 
pared, and in many cases teachers of 
lower rank are hastily marshalled to 
meet the demand. It takes time to 
make a professor. Reference to the re- 
port of the October meeting of the 
Regents will show how many adjust- 
ments have been necessary, flt Yet as 
one looks back and views the measures 
which have been taken year by year 
to meet these increasing numbers, new 
buildings, an enlarged Faculty and 
new courses which have followed in- 
evitably, one realizes that the Univer- 
sity is responding nobly, and that the 
hardships are only partial and local- 
ized. The really important aspect of 
this whole question lies in its 
bearing upon the final effectiveness 
of the University as a center for the 
dissemination of knowledge and for 
the preparation for life of those who 
enter its doors With the increase in 
size comes, of course, a more than pro- 
portionate increase in the difficulties 
of administration. This is one of the 
great problems for all universities, and 
one which the University is facing 
with at least a certain degree of suc- 
cess. The University is so large now 
that the addition of a few hundred 
students each ^xar makes but the 



smallest difference in the final problem 
of avoiding that impersonality and 
mechanical routine so usual, one al- 
most says inevitable, in so large an in- 
stitution. 



One of the happiest 
FINANCIAL of the features in the 
PROBLEMS development of the 
University is its 
method of financial support by the 
State. To correspond with the Uni- 
versity's growth there is a continual 
increase in the wealth and resources 
of the State, made available at once 
through the three-eighths of a mill tax. 
This, supplemented by the not incon- 
siderable percentage from the student 
and hospital fees and by occasional, 
but very necessary gifts of various 
sorts from alumni and friends of the 
University, make up the total income. 
CI While the capital of endowed uni- 
versities, when wisely and conserva- 
tively invested, always shows a ten- 
dency to shrink, the state university, 
supported by a mill tax, finds its 
capital constantly increasing with 
the growth of the State. The increase 
of $192,000 to the annual income of 
the University resulting from the re- 
equalization of the property in the 
State, made by the State Board during 
the past summer, is a case in i>oint 
particularly pleasing to the friends of 
the University. The total valuation 
of property in the State, according to 
the tax commissioners, has increased 
from approximately $2,288,000,000 in 
1912 to $2,800,000,000 in 1914, result- 
ing in an increased income to the Uni- 
versity from $858,000 in 1912 to 
$1,050,000 in 1914. This, together with 
approximately $400,000 from student 
fees, including the increase in students 
this year, $30,000 from the Summer 
Session, and approximately $260,000 
from the hospitals, as well as about 
$35,000 from various minor accounts, 
gives the University an income for the 
present year of $1,930,000.

This is, of course, a 
TIMELY large sum, especially 

ASSISTANCE in view of the extra- 
ordinary increase of 
over $200,000 in the present year. But 
when we have an increase of prac- 
tically ten per cent in the number of 
students every two years, paralleled 
by a constantly increasing high cost of 
living which many an impecunious 
Faculty member will assure the reader 
rests nowhere harder than in Ann Ar- 
bor, where the University, by its very 
presence, creates almost necessarily 
certain abnormal business conditions, 
this increase comes right in the nick 
of time. Comparison with Chicago's 
reported $2,750,000, Harvard's $2,- 
487,000, Illinois' $2,305,000, or Cor- 
nell's $2,207,543, especially when one 
considers that undoubtedly, with one 
or two possible exceptions, Michigan 
has the largest attendance of any uni-* 
versity in the country, would indicate 
the conservatism and business ability 
of the Regents in bringing in the bud- 
get for 1914-15. This was well within 
the estimated income before the re- 
equalization increased the income 
from the mill tax. The University 
may now find it possible to institute 
an increase in the scale of salaries 
which is becoming more and more im- 
perative, and carry out some of the 
other projects which lack of funds in 
the past has prohibited. 



As the President 
FOR ALUMNI Emeritus has so often 
CONSIDERATION said in the past, this 
growth of American 
Universities, particularly in the Mid- 
dle West, is part of the characteristic- 
ally American — or shall we limit it 
even more? — "mid-western" passion 
for education. It has brought about 
practically a revolution within a quar- 
ter of a century. We must certainly 
recognize that the University of the 
present is not the University of twen- 



ty-five years ago. flt This expansion 
brings inevitably, of course, certain 
questions in administrative and aca- 
demic policy that are, in many cases, 
still to be settled. These are before 
the whole University constituency 
right now ; they are for the alumni as 
much as for the governing bodies and 
Faculties. It is even conceivable that 
the students, about whom the Univer- 
sity revolves, may be interested, 
though possibly that is too much to 
hope for until after the football sea- 
son. But even football brings its aca- 
demic problems, flt Some of the ques- 
tions which arise immediately from 
the growth of the University have al- 
ready been suggested. Others equally 
pressing, but which do not come home 
with the same force to the ordinary 
alumnus who is not directly interested 
in educational matters are such prob- 
lems as that of the A.B. degree which 
was touched upon in these columns 
last month, or that ordinarily dreary 
balancing of credit and hours in the 
discussion of entrance requirements, 
which are being considered with par- 
ticular attention in some of the east- 
ern colleges where our accredited 
school system is not applied. This 
again suggests the question of en- 
trance examinations for freshmen as 
against the diploma from accredited 
schools, the system of the eastern en- 
dowed schools as against the practice 
of the state universities The ques- 
tion of entrance requirements, too, 
brings one to a consideration of how 
far the recognition of vocational train- 
ing in schools should be carried in the 
University Such questions as these 
may appear academic and the reverse 
of inspiring to the average alumnus, 
but they lie at the root of the modern 
university system as it is developing 
in its relations to modem life It 
would be of gjeat advantage to the 
University if there were more alumni 
who took the trouble to inform them- 
selves concerning them.

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November 



This evolutionary 

SS5f,??1!!?S.„^re process which is part 
BODIES. FACULTIES'^ r . . j • 

AND STUDENTS ^^ the modern univer- 
sity is reflected in the 
discussions, perhaps more interesting 
for the ordinary graduate, of certain 
problems of university administration 
involving the relationship of the Fac- 
ulty and governing bodies to one an- 
other and to the student. Dean Johns- 
ton, in his discussion on "University 
Organization" in the October Alum- 
nus might be taken as an illustration. 
There seem to be few who are vitally 
interested in the conduct of a modem 
university who are satisfied with the 
present methods, but the solution of 
the problem has apparently not been 
found. CI A consideration of Academ- 
ic Freedom by Howard Crosby War- 
ren, of Princeton, President of the 
American Psychological Association, 
in the November Atlantic in another 
example. In that very interesting dis- 
cussion, the author points out the fact 
that academic freedom of teaching, 
the akademische Lehrfreiheit, of Ger- 
man universities is of the highest im- 
portance in developing true scholar- 
ship. The American interpretation of 
this principle, however, differs from 
the German. While the German pro- 
fessor of high rank is free to offer any 
course whatsoever within the confines 
of his own branch, the American col- 
lege "seeks to weld its curriculum into 
an organic unity and this necessitates 
a definite apportionment of courses 
among the staff. Freedom of teaching 
does not mean that an instructor may 
offer any course which he deems wise 
without securing the consent of his 
colleagues. It means rather the ab- 
sence of constraint by non-academic 
forces." CI As Professor Warren fur- 
ther points out, the physician, or law- 
yer, is responsible for his professional 
conduct to his medical or bar associa- 
tion, while the scholar is dependent 
for the opportunity to practice his call- 
ing, as well as for his material ad- 
vancement to governing boards, which 



for certain, and quite natural reasons, 
are composed of laymen It is a sys- 
tem which has proved highly success- 
ful from the standpoint of instruction, 
though it is more open to criticism 
from that of scholarship. The curric- 
ulum of most American institutions 
has kept nearly abreast with the pro- 
gress of learning, but the principle of 
academic constraint has worked injury 
to the scholastic profession. 



Michigan has every 
NOT DOWN- reason to be proud of 
HEARTED the team which met 
Harvard October 31, 
1914. True, they did not win, but in 
spite of inexperience and accidents, 
they almost turned the trick. Probab- 
ly, as they faced one another in Har- 
vard's stadium, the better team won. 
But if it did, it was only by the small- 
est of margins. That Michigan, in 
view of the greenness of her team, 
which lacked Harvard's long training, 
and the accidents to such vital spots 
as Hughitt's elbow and Splawn's knee, 
was unable to summon the final punch 
for that last drive in face of Harvard's 
magnificent rallies in the shadow of 
her own goal posts is surely not to her 
discredit. That was where Harvard's 
veteran team rose bravely to the occa- 
sion. CI In carrying the ball, Mich- 
igan made a greater yardage .than 
Harvard, gaining 191 yards, as against 
127 for her opponents, though this 
was more than offset by Harvard's 
advantage in kicking and forward pas- 
sing. Michigan gained 1 1 first downs 
to Harvard's 7, though it must be ac- 
knowledged that on penalties she lost 
70 yards to Harvard's 17. Michigan's 
fine pluck and effectiveness was a reve- 
lation to the eastern spectators who, 
from all accounts, expected a much 
easier victory. The fact that Michigan 
carried the ball 3 yards to Harvard's 2, 
and that twice she had the ball within 
the Crimson five-yard line, must be 
considered in every careful balancing

of the merits of the two teams. Har- 
vard, of course, was deprived of the 
services of Brickley, Pennock and Ma- 
han, as an off-set to Michigan's weak 
spots. In view of what did happen, 
and the splendid showing Michigan 
made, we wish, and we speak for all 
good Michigan lovers of the game, 
that Harvard's captain and her half- 
back had been in the game, and that 
Michigan's quarter and fullback had 
been able to play their best game. 
What a game that would have been! 



Modern football 
FORWARD PASSES promises t o justify 
AND KICKS its name again. At 

least the implication 
of a certain amount of progress by the 
aerial route is fulfilled through the in- 
creasing use of the forward pass and 
the recent emphasis on the drop kick 
and punt, even though all of these 
were conspicuous by their absence 
from the Michigan offence in the Har- 
vard game. Where once all was weight 
and heavy mass plays, a few years 
have brought us to another type of 
game. flt There may have been 
more science and finer points for 
the critics to discuss at length in 
the pounding type of play, but 
surely a game calling for resource 
and versatility, wit and accuracy is 
fundamentally better. Now the em- 
phasis on speed at least equals that on 
weight. There was, of course, a cer- 
tain impressiveness in the erstwhile 
battering ram as it pounded down the 
field three downs at a time, or two 
downs and a kick, if the offensive 
weight was insufficient. But it was 
not interesting to the average specta- 
tor. It was not always inspiring even 
to the initiated. The change to four 
downs in ten yards, and the first tenta- 
tive introduction of the forward pass 
did not change the game at once. 
€C But further changes in the rules, 
and at least one season of trying them 
out has worked the reformation. New 



plays w hich the opening of the present 
season has brought to greater perfec- 
tion, mark a new era. While the strat- 
egy of the game and the fundamental 
principles of attack and defense are 
essentially the same, the tactics are 
very different. The heavy plunge of 
the old-fashioned flying wedge has 
given place to a speedier, more ag- 
gressive interference — and the for- 
ward pass. It is all to the great ad- 
vantage of the spectator. We only 
wish the proposed plan for numbering 
the individual players might be gen- 
erally adopted. Nothing could be more 
pleasing to the thousands of alumni 
who only have an opportunity of see- 
ing one or two games during the sea- 
son. 



CONCERNING 

COLLEGE 

STADIA 



The article in last 
month's Alumnus on 
Michigan's new sta- 
d i u m as compared 
with those now in course of erection 
elsewhere, proves a timely supplement 
to a well-illustrated article on "The 
vStadium and College Athletics" by 
Lawrence Perr)^ in the November 
Scribne/s. Harvard, Syracuse, Yale, 
Princeton, College of the City of New 
York and the high school at Tacoma, 
Wash., each have one of these big 
amphitheaters, while Columbia, Cor- 
nell and the University of Washing- 
ton, in addition to Michigan, have 
them building or projected. OL Quite 
rightly the author of the article sug- 
gests that the two million dollars ex- 
pended on these structures makes the 
question of their ultimate usefulness a 
proper topic for discussion. He be- 
lieves that they stand as monuments 
to the importance of organized ath- 
letic sports, and their recognition by 
the college authorities who place them 
on an organized basis as the only way 
of proper control. The defense for the 
erection of these structures against 
the criticism of those who believe that 
they place over-emphasis upon sport

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November 



as related to university life, is that, af- 
ter all, they do not create that condi- 
tion, but they are the logical results 
of it. CD^The author maintains also that 
intercollegiate sports have not grown 
out of proi>ortion to college life, but 
have grown with the size and imi>ort- 
ance of the universities themselves, 
and that the ratio has been equably 
maintained. While perhaps there are 
some who might not agree with this 
statement, there are few who will not 
acknowledge that, in the face of two 
alternatives, the abolition of major in- 
tercollegiate contests, or the handling 
of them in an adequate and broad- 
minded way, the proper solution is to 
be found in the erection of these great 
structures. Particularly is this so 
when, as in the case of Michigan, the 
final completion of the stadium rests 
with the ultimate demand. The great 
justification for the expenditure of so 
much money is that they are bound to 
pay for themselves in a short time, and 
to do away, once for all with the great 
annual waste, inevitable with tempor- 
ary stands. 



While the effects of 
UNION CAMPAIGN the great war now 
POSTPONED being waged are not 

very immediate as far 
as the University is concerned, in one 
place it has had its serious effects. The 
campaign for the new clubhouse for 
the Michigan Union has been post- 
poned indefinitely. This action is par- 
ticularly unfortunate because the or- 
ganization of the campaign was prac- 
tically completed. Conmiittees had 
been appointed all over the United 
States and a corps of general repre- 
sentatives had been selected to meet 
with the alumni. All this machinery 
is of course now made partially use- 
less, for the present at least. C^ There 
is a fortunate side, however, in so far 
as the campaign had proceeded no 
farther. It might have been much 
more difficult to drop, once progress 



had been made beyond a certain point. 
The first solicitors in the field sent 
back reports which indicated an in- 
creasing hesitation to undertake the 
campaign, on the part of local commit- 
tees, while tel^^ms from the alumni 
association in New York and other 
eastern cities emphasized the necessity 
for prompt action, which was accord- 
ingly taken, to the great regret of ev- 
everyone interested. OI^This postpone- 
ment, however, does not mean the 
abandonment of the idea. The organi- 
zation is ready, and the campaign will 
proceed as soon as the financial situa- 
tion of the country warrants an ag- 
gressive effort. Meanwhile, the 
details of the organization will be per- 
fected, and the Union will undoubted- 
ly be that much stronger. The present 
year shows no diminution in the stu- 
dent constituency. The membership is 
2,500 as against 2,670 for last year at 
the present time. While this total 
seems somewhat smaller, it must be 
remembered that there are in addition 
a hundred and fifty odd life members 
who were included in last year's 
total, so that the net result is a gain 
for the present year. 

EVENT IN BRIEF 

A "Band Bounce," held the week 
before the game in Hill Auditorium, 
made it possible for the Band to ac- 
company the team to Cambridge. 
Nearly $1,200 was realized, enough to 
send forty members of the organiza- 
tion, and Mr. S. J. Hoexter, Faculty 
director. 

Fourteen women students are en- 
rolled this year in the Engineering 
Department of the University. Two 
of these are members of the senior 
class, one is a junior, three are sopho- 
mores, and eight are freshmen. Just 
half of the women are entered in the 
Department of Architecture, while the 
remaining seven are taking the regu- 
lar engineering work.

To take care of the six thousand 
odd students at the University, there 
are now in Ann Arbor approximately 
1,100 student rooming houses, and 53 
student boarding houses. In addition, 
there are at the present time 62 fra- 
ternities, sororities and house clubs, 
with accommodations for about 1,500 
members. 

Karl W. Zimmerschied, '03, M.S. 
'04, opened the series of lectures to be 
given this year by the Chemical En- 
gineering Branch of the Engineering 
Society with an address on "The Re- 
lation of Metallurgy to Mechanics" on 
October 20. Mr. Zimmerschied was 
instructor in metallurgy and quantita- 
tive analysis in the University from 
1905 to 191 1, and is now chief metal- 
lurgist for the General Motors Com- 
pany of Detroit. 

In connection with the University 
Extension work, fourteen secretaries 
of civic associations from various 
cities in the State met in Ann Arbor 
on October 17, to listen to a lecture by 
Professor David Friday, of the Eco- 
nomics Department. It is planned to 
hold similar meetings on the third Sat- 
urday in each month, when lectures 
by different members of the Faculty 
on civic problems will be given. Pro- 
fessor Reeves, of the Political Science 
Department, will deliver the next lec- 
ture on Saturday, November 21. 

David B. McLaughlin, grandson of 
President Emeritus Angell, and* son 
of Professor Andrew C. McLaughlin, 
'82, '85/, A.M. (hon,) '96, died in Chi- 
cago on October 16, from injuries re- 
ceived last summer while diving. He 
was a student in the University of 
Chicago. Professor McLaughlin oc- 
cupied the chair of American His- 
tory in the University from 1891 to 
1906, when he resigned to accept a 
professorship in History at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago. Interment was 
made in the Forest Hill Cemetery, 
Ann Arbor. 



Dean M. E. Cooley, of the Engi- 
neering Department was appointed by 
President Hutchins as the official 
representative of the University 
at the Michigan smoker in Boston on 
the eve of the Harvard-Michigan 
game. President Hutchins had plan- 
ned to be present, but the date con- 
flicted with the annual meeting of the 
Michigan State Teachers' Association 
in Lansing. 

Eight cases containing porcelain 
ware for the Chemical Laboratory and 
a few supplies for the Botanical De- 
partment have been received by the 
University out of the four or five hun- 
dred ordered last March. They have 
been in an insured warehouse in Ham- 
burg since the outbreak of the war, 
waiting for the first opportunity to 
ship. The cases came by way of Cop- 
enhagen, Denmark. 

A special tax to pay the expenses 
caused by the injuries received by 
Russell Jacobs, *i8, when he was hazed 
on the night of October 2, has been 
levied on all the sophomore classes, 
by action of the Student Council. With 
one wrist broken and the other sprain- 
ed, the freshman has been forced to 
return to his home in Coshocton, Ohio, 
and will probably miss a semester's 
work in the University. 

On account of alterations in the ad- 
ministration of the scholarship sys- 
tem at Oxford University, the trus- 
tees of the fund have changed the 
method of selecting Rhodes scholars 
throughout the* United States. In the 
past, scholars have been elected from 
all the states for two successive years, 
while in the third year none were 
chosen. According to the new ar- 
rangements, the elections will be 
spread over three years, the scholars 
being selected from thirty-two states 
each year. For this purpose, the for- 
ty-eight states have been divided into 
three groups of sixteen each.

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November 



Work was commenced early in Oc- 
tober on the construction of a new 
bath house for the Michigan Union 
Boat Club, under the direction of Al- 
lan T. Ricketts, '15^, Plainfield, N. J., 
president of the Student Council. It 
will be located just north of Tesse- 
mer's boat house. The Boat Club also 
plans to make extensive improvements 
in the beach, and to dynamite the ruins 
of the dam near the old mill, where 
the majority of the accidents have oc- 
curred. 

The following nine men, seniors in 
the Law Department, have been added 
to the staff of the Michigan Law Re- 
view for the coming year: John G. 
Cedergren, North Branch, Minn.; 
Charles Davidson, Great Falls, Mont. ; 
Arend V. Dubee, Beloit, Wis.; Her- 
bert H. Harshman, Manistique; 
Charles J. Hilkey, Scranton, Kans. ; 
Buell McCash, Bloomfield, la. ; Leslie 
C. McClelland, Calumet ; Karl J. 
Mohr, Pekin, 111.; and Henry Rott- 
schaefer, Ann Arbor. The staff is 
now complete, fifteen of the student 
editors having been elected last spring. 

Owing to the fact that the old Hom- 
oeopathic Building was torn down last 
spring to make way for the new Sci- 
ence Building, the Homoeopathic De- 
partment has been transferred to sev- 
eral buildings which have been fitted 
up for temporary quarters pending 
the construction of the new building 
on the Homoeopathic Hospital quad- 
rangle. In the Prettyman house just 
west of the Dental Building a nurses' 
home has been provided, which con- 
tains eighteen rooms for the accom- 
modation of a part of the training 
school, and a large lecture room for 
the use of the College. Immediately 
north of this building, the maternity 
annex of the Homoeopathic Hospital 
has been housed, with a new operating 
room for septic cases exclusively. The 
clinical laboratory, which has hereto- 
fore been located in the basement of 



the Hospital, has been removed to a 
building arranged for its special ac- 
commodation, and the brick house for- 
merly occupied by the nurses has been 
fitted up as an administration building, 
where are located the offices of the 
Dean, Registrar and Secretary. Ac- 
commodations for one hospital interne 
and for other Hospital relief are also 
provided in this building. The com- 
plete plant under the control of the 
Homoeopathic Faculty now numbers 
eight different structures, including 
the two tuberculosis shacks, and the 
Department has never been so well 
equipped for carrying on its work. 

The second annual Convocation Day 
was set for Friday afternoon, October 
16. Although a downpour of rain pre- 
vented the procession of Faculty and 
students around the Campus, Hill Au- 
ditorium was well filled for the exer- 
cises. After the organ prelude by 
Professor A. A. Stanley, the invoca- 
tion by Professor Emeritus M. L. 
D'Ooge, and an address of welcome 
by President Harry B. Hutchins, Dean 
Victor C. Vaughan, of the Medical 
Department, the speaker of the day, 
talked on "The Nature and Purpose 
of Education." The program closed 
with the singing of 'The Yellow and 
the Blue." 

Presidents of the classes which held 
elections during the past month have 
been. chosen as follows: Senior liter- 
ary: Harry G. Gault, Flint; junior 
literary: George P. McMahon, De- 
troit; sophomore literary: Willis D.

gineers : George A. Scheibel, Holyoke, 
Mass. ; senior medical : Ezra E. Koeb- 
be, Manchester; junior medical: John 
O. Dieterle, Ann Arbor; senior law: 
Charles W. Burton, Edwardsville, 111. ; 
senior dental: Warren P. Gibson, 
Brent Creek; junior dental: Roy E. 
Moran, Pindcney ; senior homoeopath- 
ic: Robert H. Criswell, Quincy, 111.;

It has been announced by Superin- 
tendent of Buildings and Grounds J.H. 
Marks, '08^, that the new Power Plant 
of the University will be ready for 
work in the early part of December. 
Two days will be set aside for the 
formal opening and public inspection 
of the new building when every detail 
has been completed. The new plant 
is as modem as that of any other uni- 
versity in the country, and ranks far 
above those in use at most of the other 
schools. It is estimated that the plant 
will consume between 13,000 and 
15,000 tons of coal a year, and will 
heat 2,500 gallons of water an hour. 
The coal is shipped directly to the door 
of the building by a spur track from 
the Michigan Central. The cost of the 
plant is $430,000. 

Professor A. G. Ruthven, Profes- 
sor of Zoology and Curator of the 
University Museum, and Mr. Freder- 
ick M. Gaige, '14, assistant in the Mu- 
seum, returned this fall from an ex- 
pedition on the Demerara River in 
British Guiana with a, collection of 
great value, espyecially to research 
workers on the staff and to graduate 
students. Professor Ruthven and Mr. 
Gaige left Ann Arbor late in June, 
and encamped with six natives on the 
Demerara River, about thirty miles 
from the coast. The country was cov- 
ered with a dense jungle, the land was 
so low and wet that they waded in 
mud constantly, and it rained practic- 
ally every day. As a result of this cli- 
mate. Professor Ruthven was taken ill 
with a jungle fever, similar to that 
which overcame Mr. Roosevelt on his 
Brazilian trip, and is still feeling the 
effects of the attack. 



Professor Fred N. Scott, '84, A.M. 
'88, Ph.D. '89, head of the Rhetoric 
Department, has presented to the Uni- 
versity I^ibrary a large memorial vol- 
ume of Groningen, Holland, which 
was published to commemorate the 
celebration of the three hundredth an- 
niversary of the founding of Gronin- 
gen University. It is written in the 
Dutch language, and contains a his- 
tory of Groningen University, with 
photographs and descriptions of the 
art collections at the University. Pro- 
fessor Scott secured the volume while 
he was attending the celebration as a 
special representative of the Univer- 
sity of Michigan. 

Michigan has not only the largest 
wireless station of any of the univer- 
sities of the country, but also the larg- 
est of any kind in the Great Lakes 
region. It is of a ten killowat installa- 
tion, while the wireless station at De- 
troit, the largest commercial station in 
this region, is only a two killowatt sta- 
station. Michigan's set cannot com- 
pare, however, with those of the big 
transatlantic stations, which have a 
one hundred and fifty killowatt instal- 
lation. The University station is well 
known about the country, and many 
letters are received during the year 
from commercial and amateur opera- 
tors who have succeeded in picking up

"ALBION POINTS A WAV 

The very interesting proposal for a correlation of courses between 
Albion College and the Engineering School of the University is noted in the 
report of the Regents* meeting for October. Apropos of this plan the 
Detroit Tribune for Sunday, November i, 1914, publishes the following edi- 
torial : 

Closer working connection among the finishing schools conducted by the state 
is the dream of advanced educators in Michigan, and men that have a hand in the 
state's government have spoken words in recommendation of a change. The point of 
view of the educators is that of increased efficiency in education, that of the states- 
men the removal of the evil of duplication in work as among the various institutions 
— for duplication spells unnecessary expense and a tax that might by so much be 
reduced. 

None of the arguments for closer correlation of the University with the technical 
colleges and the normal schools have glanced at the denominational colleges to bring 
them into the plan. From the point of view of the man interested in the economies 
of the case they lie apart, because they are denominational and any new program that 
made for economy for them would not affect the state tax rate. Those persons who 
are interested in the educational phase of the plan will note probably with satisfaction 
that one of the denominational colleges has taken a step which brings these privately 
conducted institutions into consideration. 

Albion, largest of the denominational colleges in Michigan in respect to enrolled 
students, has arranged an engineering course which, by consent of the University 
Regents, becomes, in fact, a University course. It is to be a five-year course, the last 
two years of instruction to be taken at Ann Arbor. Presumably the three years at 
Albion will be devoted to the generalities of the subject and the finishing period 
under Professor Cooley and his staff will be almost if not wholly technical. 

Graduates of this curriculum probably will not attempt to advance the claim 
of preparedness for practical work that graduates of the grinding, thorough engineer- 
ing courses of the University can claim. It is understood, nevertheless, that they will 
attain to the "B.S., Mich." Michigan graduate engineers are accounted among the 
best in the country. Those who come up from Albion and graduate, however, ought 
to attain a standing that will be superior to that derived from graduation at a good 
many other engineering colleges of good repute. 

If the chief benefit from this new arrangement appears to redound more to the 
benefit of the Albion institution than to the University the fact is offset by the more 
important fact that the state institution is to perform a substantial service in educa- 
tion for some of its citizens. The arrangement between the governors of the two 
institutions reflects credit upon both and promises much by way of example. If the 
boards of control of various state institutions were to fall into the spirit of the plan 
it might be that co-ordination in work among the state colleges and the university 
could in large measure be brought about without waiting on legislatures and laws to 
compel the improvement.

1914I THE HARVARD GAME 73 

HARVARD^ 7; MICHIGAN, 

Michigan's first game with Harvard in nineteen years resulted prac- 
tically the same as the last previous contest between the two universities — 
a victory for the Cambridge eleven by one touchdown. There was, however, 
one decided difference between the performances of the two Michigan teams. 
In 1895 the Wolverines went east with a veteran team, expecting to win ; 
this time it was a green outfit that upheld the maize and blue, and the fight- 
ing spirit exhibited by Captain Raynsford and his men under adverse cir- 
cumstances was such as to make every student and alumnus more proud 
than they have been in many a victory. 

It was a noteworthy achievement to hold the veteran crimson team — 
without Brickley, Mahan and Pennock though it was — as Michigan held it, 
really forcing the fighting for over half the game, and gaining considerably 



SPLAWN MAKING AN ON-SIDB KICK 

The picture shows how close to the line of scrimmage he stood 
The ball is in the air in front of him 

more yardage than was covered by the home eleven. And the feat means 
even more when we consider that, much as Harvard missed her three stars, 
Michigan was seriously crippled by the injuries to Hughitt and Splawn, 
suffered in the M. A. C. and Syracuse games respectively. Both these men 
were able to last through the contest, it is true, but Michigan's plan of 
battle had been of necessity entirely altered by reason of their condition. 
Coach Yost knew that neither of them was likely to stand severe pounding ; 
consequently he laid out a policy of attack which kept them out of the inter- 
ference almost entirely, and allowed them to run with the ball but little. 
Thus much of the time Michigan's offense was carried out by nine men 
only, and one does not need to be an expert to realize what a handicap this 
was. 

In another respect than the one mentioned, the game was like that of 
1895. Michigan had opportunities to win^r at any rate to score — ^but 
failed to accept them. "Jii"i"y" Baird, who was the 1895 ^^1^ general, told 
the big mass meeting the night before the game, how chances were missed

74 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [November 



HARDWICK (at the right of the goal i>08t) MAKING HARVARD'S TOUCHDOWN 
The picture shows how Michigan's line was opened for the play 

nineteen years ago, little thinking, no doubt, that the story would be repeated. 
But it was, though it be said in no spirit of fault-finding. In contrast to 
Michigan, Harvard accepted her one opportunity to score — and won the 
game thereby. It would be unfair to the winning eleven to withhold credit 
for that achievement. Equally would it be unfair to the Michigan players 
to condemn them for what they did not do in the face of what they did do. 

To review the game briefly by quarters: the first, with the wind and 
sun in the Harvard men's faces, was all in Michigan's favor. The visitors' 
attack seemed to take the easterners, experienced though they were, by sur- 
prise, and Michigan here had her first chance to score. Fine plunging by 
Maulbetsch and Lyons, despite the infliction of penalties, had carried the 
ball to the three-yard line, Maulbetsch almost getting across on the last run. 
An open play then resulted in a loss, and on last down what appeared to the 
spectators at large to be a repetition of a double pass — which had succeeded 
shortly before, was a failure, and the ball went over on downs. It was really 
a forward pass play, but the signal was missed, and Splawn's effort to run 
with the ball was foiled. 

In the second quarter Harvard used the wind skillfully, and when well 
into Michigan's territory worked a beautiful forward pass, Hardwick to 
Smith. Shortly after this the versatile Hardwick carried the ball over on a 
straight drive which found the Michigan line wide open, the Wolverines 
having guessed wrong by anticipating the usual Harvard split formation. 

The third quarter was decidedly Michigan's, though Harvard had the 
wind. Maulbetsch showed a streak of ground-gaining that for consistency

and sustained power would be hard to equal. He took the ball on play after 
play, finally placing it on Harvard's five-yard line, where, with one yard to 
go for first down, the sturdy halfback was sent at the Crimson flank, where 
Trumbull and Hardwick were stationed. He couldn't gain a foot, and the 
ball went over. It was the last opportunity for Michigan. 

Harvard played for time in the last quarter, but at the same time uncov- 
ered the most impressive attack she showed during the contest, Hardwick 
and the giant Francke playing havoc with the Wolverine forwards. The 
final whistle ended play just after a forward pass had placed the ball on 
Michigan's 25-yard line. 

Taking the game as a whole, I would say that Harvard had the edge 
as far as strategy was concerned, and in some respects showed the gfreater 
football knowledge, man for man, which last is hardly to be wondered at 
when it is remembered that seven of the Crimson players are three-year men, 
while only four of the Wolverines won their "M's" last season, and but one 
of these — Hughitt — was playing the same position he filled in 1913. 

On offense, strange as it may seem, Michigan was more conservative 
than the easterners. Hughitt called for but one forward pass, in addition to 
the one which wasn't played through, while Harvard used four, making three 
of them good. Both teams showed good strength at straight football, Maul- 
betsch, Hardwick and Francke being the outstanding figures in this respect. 
I think most of the spectators would agree that of the three, Maulbetsch 
was the most impressive. He had to bear by far the greater share of the 
burden for Michigan, as against the Crimson's star pair, who were given 
some assistance also by Logan and Bradlee, yet he very rarely failed to gain. 
Captain Brickley paid him what is a great compliment, coming from a Har- 
vard man, when he compared his style of running to that T3f the former 
Harvard fullback, Percy Wendell, who was selected for two or three All- 
American elevens by Walter Camp. 

All the credit, however, should not go to Maulbetsch. The Michigan 
forwards, decidedly green in comparison to the Harvard linemen, did some 
splendid work, bending back the Crimson wall, and blocking oflf the men in 
grand style. During Michigan's marches down the field the Harvard tack- 
les were given severe treatment. Benton, in his first big game, repeatedly 
put the veteran Trumbull out of plays, and Staatz was also eflfective in this 
way. 

Harvard's running oflfense consisted largely of the split play through 
the middle of the line. Toward the end of the fourth quarter Michigan left 
the center open to this attack, instead of shutting it oflf by moving a man 
up from the secondary defense, and it looked once or twice as if big Francke 
would get loose. On one play particularly, he broke through with two or 
three of his team-mates ahead of him, but either stumbled or was tripped by a 
Michigan player trying to tackle him. With the aid of his interference, he 
seemed likely on that play to get past Hughitt, but fortune was with Mich- 
igan for the moment. 

Harvard's forward passes were beautifully executed, the end running 
diagonally to a point directly down the field from the place of scrimmage.

1914] THE HARVARD GAME 77 

Hardwick threw the ball swiftly, and one catch at least, that by Smith pre- 
ceding Harvard's score, was unusually difficult. The ball came low, and 
the Crimson end scooped it off his shoestrings in regular Ty Cobb fashion. 
Hughitt, who was coming up behind him, was nearer than any other Michi- 
gan man, but had absolutely no chance to intercept the pass. 

Neither side did much end-running, Hughitt and Splawn failing two 
or three times, while Hardwick made a couple of gains. The Harvard ends 
looked very good on breaking up this sort of thing, and in general play. 

The kicking honors were rather in Harvard's favor, Francke showing 
unexpected ability in this direction. Splawn got his punts oflf more quickly 
than in some of the earlier games, and had none blocked. He sent some 
long spirals down the field, but his average was not quite as good as that of 
his opponents, who also placed their kicks finely. One from behind the goal 
line was a particularly beautiful piece of work, setting Michigan back prac- 
tically to the center of the field. 

Many spectators were puzzled as to why Michigan allowed the Harvard 
punts to drop. It was partly on account of the treacherous air currents in 
the stadium, which make the ball do very queer things, but possibly even 
more for the purpose of saving Hughitt. As a matter of fact, the scheme 
woriced out pretty well, as the ball a number of times bounded back many 
yards toward the Harvard goal after striking the ground. 

The tackling on both sides was pretty sharp, though on a few occasions 
Michigan men seized the runner too high. More penalties were inflicted on 
the Wolverines than on the home eleven, and some few of the Michigan en- 
thusiasts were inclined to charge partiality, but Coach Yost had no com- 
plaint to make on that score, saying that he thought the work of the officials 
very high class. 

The defensive play of both teams brought individuals into the lime- 
light. Reimann put up a stalwart game at tackle, and Captain Raynsford 
did some very effective plugging of the holes in the line, from his position 
behind it. For Harvard Weston spoiled a niunber of Michigan plays, and 
Bradlee, backing up the line, tackled Maulbetsch time after time after the 
latter was cleanly past the Crimson forwards. 

It was quite laughable to hear the Boston people, even including some 
who ought to have known better, talk about their disappointment because 
Michigan didn't "uncork anything." They evidently expected to see a lot 
of evolutions and gyrations that would fairly make the spyectators dizzy 
looking at them. The more astute may have figured out by now that west- 
em and eastern football aren't so different, after all, while the other sort 
are probably much mystified still. 

The occasion as a whole was one that will be memorable in Michigan 
athletic annals. The five hundred or so enthusiasts from Ann Arbor, Chi- 
cago and Detroit, augmented by hundreds of loyal alumni from the East, 
made a fine showing in the stadium, even though vastly outnumbered in the 
crowd of some 25,000. Michigan's cheering was magnificent, and the hearty 
response to leader "Hap" Haff's calls for "yea's" for injured Harvard 
players seemed much appreciated by the home spectators.

78 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [November 

The Varsity Band, in uniform, with yellow lined capyes, was applauded 
to the echo, both before the game, during the intermission and at the end, 
when it led the Michigan crowd in a march around the field to show Har- 
vard that there were no "sore spots" and to indicate deserved appreciation 
of the defeated team's game fight. 

The spirit on both sides was most friendly and creditable in every way, 
and it was generally felt that the two universities had gone far toward ce- 
menting their former friendship. There was talk after the game — unofficial 
talk, of course — that Michigan would play in Cambridge again next year, 
and that Harvard would come to Ann Arbor in 1916. Some skeptics doubt 
this latter, on the ground that it is distinctly against Harvard's traditional 
policy, but there are many who think it may work out. 

Many hospitalities were shown the visitors by the Harvard alumni and 
students, and Coach Yost stated that he had never made a trip when more 
careful consideration was shown for the comfort of the team by the athletic 
authorities. 

Mention should not be omitted of the mass meeting at the Copley Plaza 
Hotel the Friday night preceding the game. This was in charge of the New 
England alumni, who made a grtst showing, both of efficiency and enthusi- 
asm, on this occasion. James M. Swift, '95, ex-attomey-general of Mass- 
achussetts, presided, and Dean Cooley made the principal talk, in his inimita- 
ble style. Other speakers were James O. Murfin, '95, '96/, of Detroit, "Bill" 
Day, '00/, of Cleveland, "Jimmy" Baird, 'gSe, of Washington, D. C, Hugh 
White, '99, *02/, of New York, William T. Whedon, '81, of Norwood, Mass., 
president of the New England Alumni Association, Henry J. Killilea, '85/, 
of Milwaukee, President of the "M'' Club, and Coach Yost.

CHANGES IN THE FACULTY 

Fewer changes than usual are to be noticed in the University Faculty 
for the present year. Only eleven new members have been added to the 
Senate, four of these coming to the University from other positions, while 
seven are promoted from the rank of instructor to assistant professorships. 
Professor Thomas J. MacKavanagh comes to the University from the Shaw- 
inigan Technical Institute as Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, 
while Dr. Rollo E. McCotter, who was an instructor in the Medical Depart- 
ment from 1909 to 1913, has been called from Vanderbilt University to fill 
the vacancy left by the resignation of Dr. George L. Streeter as Professor 
of Anatomy and Director of the Anatomical Laboratory. Mr. James Bart- 
lett Edmonson, the new State Inspector of High Schools, is of senatorial 
rank, as is Dr. Alice Evans, who takes Miss Catherine Bigelow's place as 
Director of Physical Education in Barbour Gymnasium. 

Dr. Hugh M. Beebe was appointed last spring as Professor of General 
Surgery in the Homoeopathic Department, succeeding Dr. Dean T. Smith. 
A biographical sketch of Dr. Beebe, with his photograph, was published in 
the Alumnus for last June.

Three assistant professors have been advanced to junior professorships, 
Professor Lee Holt Cone who becomes Junior Professor of Organic Chem- 
istry ; Professor Elmer Edwin Ware, who is made Junior Professor of Chem- 
ical Engineering; and Professor Aaron Franklin ShuU, who is made Junior 
Professor of Zoology. 

The Regents have granted to Professor Rene Talamon, who was ad- 
vanced from instructor in French to Assistant Professor of French, and who 
is now at the front with the French army, an indefinite leave of absence. His 
work will be carried by the other members of the French Faculty. 

Professor Morris P. Tilley, of the English Department, is absent on 
leave for the present year, and Professor John O. Reed, who resided this 
fall from the deanship of the Literary Department, is still abroad. He and 
Mrs. Reed are living at Jena. Dr. Claude A. Burrett, formerly Professor 
of Surgery in the Homoeopathic Medical College, and Registrar of the Col- 
lege, resigned his ix)sition with the opening of the college year, and is now 
associated with the recently established Homoeopathic Department of Ohio 
State University. Professors William A. Frayer and James G. Cumming 
are also absent on leave. 

Biographical sketches of the four new members of the Faculty follow : 

Professor Albert Ross Bailey entered the Literary Department of the 
University in 1899, changing in 1901 to the Engineering Department. In the 
spring of 1903 he left the University to become draftsman and levelman for 
the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway, a position which he held 
until March, 1905, when he became draftsman for the New York Central 
and Hudson River Railway. In August of that same year he accepted a 
position in the chief engineer's office of the Baltimore and Ohio Railway, and 
in January, 1906, became chief draftsman in the Maintenance of Way 
Department of the Lake Shore, with headquarters at Cleveland, Ohio. This 
position he held for three years, resigning in 1909 to come 'to the University 
as instructor in Surveying. He is now Assistant Professor of Surveying. 

James Bartlett Edmonson, who has been appointed State High School 
Inspector for Michigan, was bom in Parkersburg, Iowa, December 28, 1882. 
Entering the University in 1902, he was graduated with the degree of A.B. 
in 1906. Six years later he received his master's degree. For the year fol- 
lowing his graduation he was assistant principal of the high school at Ionia, 
Mich., and the next year he went to Hillsdale as principal of the high school. 
In this position he remained for two years, spending the year 1909-10 in 
Ann Arbor in the Graduate Department. During 1910-1911 he served as 
principal of the Benton Harbor High School, going to Jackson as principal 
of the high school there in the fall of 191 1. From this position he resigned 
to accept his new office. Mr. Edmonson was married on August 25, 1914, 
to Miss Bess Josephine Chase, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. 

Alice Evans, who comes to the University as Director of Physical Edu- 
cation, was bom in 1883 in Chicago, 111. In 1905 she was graduated from 
Smith College, and in 1912 from the Department of Hygiene of Wellesley 
College. For the four years following her graduation from Smith College, 
Miss Evans conducted classes in Hull House, Chicago, and after leaving 
Wellesley in 1912 she taught in the Milwaukee Downer Seminary until

called to the University. The summers of 1913 and 1914 she spent in a 
girls' camp in Algonquin Park, Canada. 

Rollo Eugene McCotter, who returns to the University as Professor of 
Anatomy and Director of the Anatomical Laboratory, was bom January 23, 
1847, at Vermontville, Mich. He entered the Medical Department of the 
University in the fall of 1904, and received the degree of Doctor of Medi- 
cine in 1910. From 1899 to 1904 Dr. McCotter taught in the public schools 
of Michigan. In the fall of 1906 he accepted the assistantship in Anatomy 
in the University, and in 1909 he was made instructor in that subject. In 
the spring of 19 13 he resigned his position in order to accept the professor- 
ship of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology in Vanderbilt University. He 
held this position until June, 19 14, when he resigned to become Assistant 
Professor of Anatomy'at the University of Michigan. 

Dr. McCotter has published the following papers : "On the occurrence 
of pulmonary arteries arising from the thoracic aorta ;" "The connection of 
the vomero-nasal nerves with the accessory olfactory bulb in the opossum 
and other mammals ;" "The nervus terminalis in the adult dog and cat." 

He was married in 1909 to Miss Erma Gertrude Harris, of Lawrence, 
Mich. There are no children. 

Thomas J. MacKavanagh, who comes to the University as Assistant 
Professor of Electrical Engineering, was born in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, 
Scotland, May 25, 1882. His education was received at the Royal Technical 
College, Glasgow, Scotland, and the Nova Scotia Technical College, Hali- 
fax, N. S. He holds the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engi- 
neering, and is a member of the American Institute of Electrical Eng^eers 
and the Nova Scotia Engineering Society. From 1905 to 1912 Professor 
MacKavanagh was chief electrical engineer of the Anglo-American Tele- 
graph Company and the Western Union Cable System on C. S. S. "Minia," 
Halifax, Nova Scotia. In 1912 he was called to the Shawinigan Technical 
Institute, Shawinigan Falls, Province of Quebec, as head of the Electrical 
Engineering Department, which position he resigned to come to the Uni- 
versity of Michigan. From May, 1913, to September, 1914, he acted also 
as research engineer for the Shawinigan Water and Power Company. 

Professor MacKananagh is married, and has three children. 

Short sketches of the men who have been promoted from instructor- 
ships to assistant professorships are given below : 

Frank Richard Finch, who becomes Assistant Professor of Descriptive 
Geometry and Drawing, was born August 3, 1883, at Auburn, N. Y. Pro- 
fessor Finch received his preparatory schooling at the Auburn Academic 
High School, and was graduated from the Sheffield Scientific School of

he received his A.B. degree, and in 191 1 the degree of Master of Science in 
Forestry. The summer following his graduation he spent with the State 
Forester of Ohio, engaged in the study of timber conditions in the State. 
The summer of 19 10 he was in the U. S. Forest Service in Colorado, sur- 
veying, mapping, and cruising timber, and in June, 191 1, he received the 
appointment as forest assistant on the Medicine Bow National Forest, 
Laramie, Wyo. In October of that year he was appointed instructor in 
forestry at the University, which position he has held until his recent 
promotion. The summer of 1912 he returned to the Medicine Bow National 
Forest, and the summer of 1913 was spent in British Columbia, where he 
was in charge of a party engaged in surveying, mapping and cruising Tie 
Reserves belonging to the Canadian Pacific Railway. 

In 191 1 Professor Young published an article on "Reproduction of 
Engelmann Spruce after Fire" in "American Forestry." He was married 
on December 21, 191 2, to Miss Frances S. Graham, '09. They have no 
children. Professor Young is a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity,

TAPPAN MANUSCRIPTS IN THE UNIVER- 
SITY LIBRARY 

In connection with the placing in the Alumni Building, last June, of the 
memorial tablet to our first president, Henry Philip Tappan, it seems fitting 
to take some notice of his unpublished manuscripts in the University Lib- 
rary. 

After Dr. Tappan's death at Vevey, Switzerland, in 1881, the manu- 
scripts came into the possession of his grandson. Dr. Rudolph E. Briinnow, 
Professor of Semitic Philology in Princeton University. 

While Mr. Charles M. Perry was pursuing the study of Dr. Tappan's 
philosophy in connection with a thesis for the doctorate, it was suggested 
by Professor Lloyd that access to these manuscripts be secured. Their 
use was generously granted, and, on the request of the Librarian, in 1910, 
Professor Briinnow gave them into the permanent possession of the Library 
of the University of Michigan, asking in return but a tyi>ewritten copy, 
which the Library was only too glad to make. 

While they are now available for any one whose cause would justify 
their use, they are safely housed in the fireproof vaults of the library of the 
institution for which President Tappan did so much, and which has such 
reason to venerate his memory. 

The manuscripts, as given to us by Professor Briinnow, were mostly 
in Dr. Tappan's own hand, and contained in seven packages, as follows: 

I. A complete work on psychology, of 4S7 octavo pages. 

]I. A metrical translation from the German of a considerable portion of Wil- 
helm Jordan's "Nihelunge/' 7 booklets and fragments. 

III. Various fragmentary articles: on universities, sheets 121-140; a "preliminary 
essay," 32 pages; on immortality, 10 foolscap pages. 

IV. Course of moral philosophy, 127 pages ; Cardinal Manning and Lord Redes- 
dale (a letter to the Daily Telegraph), 33 pages; Importance of the study of Moral 
Philosophy, 8 pages; on Greek literature, 4 pages; and other fragments. 

V. Sermons. Two large, and nine small booklets. 

VI. Several poems. An "Ode to the Mediterranean," 8 pages; "Nepenthe," 
a philosophical essay in blank verse, devoted to the soul's relation to the infinite; and 
other pieces mostly incomplete, in all 39 pages. 

VII. An essay on John Milton, 121 pages, large octavo. 

Of these manuscripts, number I, the Psychology, is apparently suitable 
for a course of lectures on the subject to students, and was probably so 
used. Some of Dr. Tappan's students now living might be able to deter- 
mine that question. Much of the matter in this work went into Dr. Tappan's 
published book on Logic, which was copyrighted in 1855. 

The translation of Jordan's "Nibelunge," while holding closely to the 
original in thought and in form, is sufficiently free in idiomatic English to 
draw the reader along with the true and easy swing of the epic poem. 
Professor Briinnow's notation ascribes the translation to "the early seven- 
ties," but there is some reason to think it might have been earlier. Volume 
one of Jordan's work, (Sigfridsage), was published in 1868, and volume two

(Hildebrant's Heimkehr), in 1874. All that we have of Dr. Tappan's trans- 
lation, songs 1-8, 10, and part of 22, belong to the first volume. 

Wilhelm Jordan, in 1865, had translated into German Dr. Tappan's 
memorial address on Abraham Lincoln, delivered at the American Church 
in Berlin. A copy of this address, in the German version, was recently 
secured and presented to the Library of the University by E. W. Pendleton, 
'72, of Detroit. 

If Dr. Tappan wished to return the compliment of a translation he 
would be likely to do it soon after the appearance of the first volume of 
the "Nibelunge," a complete "Lied" in itself, in 1868. The following lines 
from the opening of the first song will serve to show with what sympathetic 
force and fine imagination the philosopher's mind could turn to epic poetry. 

"I dare to wander through ways long forsaken 

In the far distant past of our people. 

Awake then verse full of power and sweetness 

To which Nature the mother of beauty and music 

Has fashioned the soul and the speech of the German; 

As the thrush and the bullfinch taught by her instinct 

Pour forth their love songs from bush and from brake. 

But how died away this melodious measure, 

Do you ask all astonished? 

Then hear how it died and how again it has risen." 

There are a nuntber of fragmentary pieces of verse, some of which leap 
with true lyric lightness of foot, but they generally carry a somewhat heavy 
weight of thought. The subjects of these poetic impressions are mostly 
European scenery, especially of Italy, and one is inclined at first to refer 
them to Dr. Tappan's trip to Europe which he described in so interesting 
a manner in the two volumes entitled *'A step from the new world to the old 
and back again," published in 1852. Whether written at that period or dur- 
ing his later residence in Europe, they show the philosopher and educator 
impelled to give his fancy restful flights, and to look on life from a vacation 
point of view. A good illustration of this state of mind is his "Ode to the 
Mediterranean." From its 130 lines the following may be quoted : 

"How sad the desolation of thine isles 
And of thy classic consecrated shores 
Where Heaven bestows its most benignant smiles 
And yields to faith all that the heart adores, 
Where all that elevates, adorns, inspires 
Their origin and bright examples find, 
Where Homer and Isaiah struck their lyres, 
And Socrates and Jesus taught mankind." 

The essay on John Milton is^f such fonn and -length as to be suitable 
for public lectures or addresses. Although conservatively orthodox in his 
religious and philosophical ideas. Dr. Tappan exhibits such a vigorous and 
appreciative admiration for Milton, who has not generally been regarded 
as theologically orthodox, that he seems to have run close to the verge of 
inconsistency with his own philosophy. This is especially noticeable with 
r^^ard to the "Areopagitica," and the right of liberty of thought in general. 
Milton's theories of education he approves and adopts with few qualifica-

tions, and passes them on with such lauds and commendation, that it is easy 
to perceive that not all the ideas which he put into university education in 
this country had come from Germany. The following extract from this 
essay may serve to emphasize his attitude: 

"Alas! The age in which he (Milton) lived had not 'spirit and capacity enough 
to apprehend' his rational and lofty teachings. Nor yet have his countrymen 
advanced to the form and method which he expounded to them. The Universities, 
have been but partially reformed, no Gymnasium has come into existence, and no 
general system of popular education has been adopted. But other nations have 
received the light, and heard the voice.'' 

Although the philosophic thought of Dr. Tappan*s day has yielded in 
some ways to the evolutionary pressure of the passing years, there is much 
in these manuscripts besides the personality of a great thinker that is of 
value and should be made more accessible to the future student. 

There has been some talk of a "Tappan Book" to be issued by the 
University of Michigan. It would be a credit to the University and to be 
desired from their own importance if these papers could be preserved in 
printed form, a memorial to our great first president whose name we hold so 
dear and whose memory we love to honor.

I9I4] OPENING ADDRESS 87 

OPENING ADDRESS IN THE MEDICAL 
DEPARTMENT* 

When I was asked to give the address for the opening of the Medical 
College I cast about for a subject, but could find none with well defined out- 
lines, none that I could build up in concrete form with a limiting wall about 
it, for my thoughts constantly reverted to the medical student and the 
more I thought the farther away like the distant approximation of two 
parallel lines seemed the ultimate boundary of what we might call the 
horoscope of the medical student. So my remarks must be abstract, touch- 
ing only the points which appeal to me as the essential ones for you as 
students and practitioners of medicine, for us as your teachers and pilots 
through what may be at times the stormy seas of your preliminary training. 

We are all the products of others. None of us are original. We owe 
our conformation of body to our progenitors or to the aflfHctions we may 
have endured in our infancy. Our state of mind we owe to our early 
training and our subsequent environment, our religion or our lack of it. 
We develop complexes which make us antagonistic to certain doctrines, 
advocates of others. These complexes are unconsciously cultivated. For 
this reason we have a feeling of antipathy for John Jones when in reality 
John is a good reliable citizen and may possess infinitely finer qualities than 
we do ourselves. We become biased. After a time, through some unfor- 
seen circumstance, we are brought into more intimate association with John 
and we begin to realize that our apparent antipathy was based i-:pon an 
acquired complex, and we recognize as if by discovery that in reality John 
is a perfectly good fellow. So in the beginning of your medical work get 
your state of mind right. Try to be normal. If you split your infinitive 
when you write don't do it when you think. If you have an antagonism 
for a certain subject and you think it is not necessary for your future success 
in medicine, remember your experience with John Jones. It may be that 
there is a good reason for the detested course, that it is a stepping stone to 
the acquirement of a more difficult problem later on and that after all it is 
a perfectly good course and you would not have missed it for anything. 

As you have been told before you. are all here for hard work, the 
hardest work any student can take up. If your foundations are well laid 
your superstructures can be maintained. Should a flaw occur later on it 
can be mended more easily. Begin your work with the knowledge that 
every required course in the curriculum is absolutely essential for the 
complete and successful rounding out of your medical education. Remember 
that it is for you that this medical school has been developed, for you that 
we seek to advance our science and make our knowledge more exact. You 
are our pride or our shame. You are the end reaction of all our efforts — 
the saving of humanity, the redemption of man. We, many of us, labor in 
our laboratories for months or years to establish a single abstract fact which 
we can give to you in a few words, glad as payment if it may be added to

David Murray Cowie, September 29, 1914.

our storehouse of knowledge. You, most of you, will be in the field apply- 
ing the sirni total of the knowledge that has come only through the unceas- 
ing efforts of, possibly, some unpopular teacher. 

So once more let me recall to you that after inheriting a sound mind 
in a sound body you are all that you are through your contact with 
others. Marcus Aurelius, fully realizing the significance of this fact, records 
in his meditations "what and of whom whether parents, friends, or masters, 
by their good examples, or good advice and counsel, he had learned." His 
illustrious career was moulded and shaped by his contact with others. From 
his grand father he learned to be gentle and to refrain from all passion. 
From his mother he learned to be religious, and bountiful. From Diognetus 
he acquired a contempt for superstition. From Rusticus he learned that 
his life needed some "redress, and cure," and to despise display and ostenta- 
tion; from Apollonius unvariable steadfastness and to regard nothing, 
though ever so small, but right and reason. Of Apollonius he also learned 
how to receive favors of kindness (as commonly they are accounted) from 
friends so that he might not become obnoxious to them, nor more yielding 
upon occasion than in right he ought. From Sextus he learned tolerance 
for human f railities. 

Living in a wicked and sensual age, the ruling spirit of a great and 
glorious empire, subject because of this to the greatest of temptations, he put 
into effective practice those principles acquired from his associates and be- 
came the greatest "moral phenomenon" of all time. I might go on extoling 
the virtues and the greatness of this wonderful pagan but I only wish to fix 
the point if I may that each one of us, surely though unconsciously, is part 
Vaughan, part de Nancrede, Lombard, Novy, Huber, and part those who 
have pressed some fact, or truth, or method, or mental attitude permanently 
into his cosmos before he attains his degree, his permission to practice their 
teachings, much of which is their own creation and much of which they too 
have acquired from others. 

If we as teachers press our subjects upon you with apparently too 
much vigor, it is only because we honestly believe and know that it is 
necessary in order to turn out a good product, and to keep our school in 
the vanguard of medical teaching, — ^to keep our school so that you will 
be, as others have been in the past, proud to have the consciousness, though 
we write it not after our names, that our degree is M.D. Ann Arbor. 

Patriotism to your alma mater is one of the first principles you should 
endeavor to have instilled into you. The man without it, whether student 
or teacher, is in a sad plight. Michigan offers to you a perfectly normal 
education in medicine. You are bound by no ism, no pwithy, no creed except 
the moral code. You are curtailed by no narrowness, no superstitions, no 
envy, no hatred. You are set adrift with the knowledge that your founda- 
tions are sound and that you have been taught nothing you can ever be 
ashamed of. Truly "no pent up Utica contracts" your "powers, the whole 
boundless (world) is yours." Be loyal in your class work. Be proud 
that you are a freshman. Be anxious to make your freshman class the 
best freshman class that ever entered college. If it is the best there will be

no question about the senior class. If your brother student has trouble in 
making the grade, out of pride for your class and ambition to make your 
Michigan degree mean still more to you and to the world, lend him a helping 
hand. If he is a sloth help him out of your class, he will always be a 
discredit to you. But be sure your diagnosis is correct before your vis 
atergo is put into action. 

You seek a medical education perhaps, because there is something 
fascinating about it for you. Because you have a desire to be of use to 
humanity. You may have come to the conclusion that medicine is the most 
far reaching profession, that its scope is broader than any other. *You 
come to this conclusion because you have made the observation, that all 
scientific knowledge has an application in medicine, and that a full knowl- 
edge of the arts, is essential to the culture necessary to cope with its various 
humanistic ramifications. You seek a medical education to make a liveli- 
hood. This is assured you if your work has been well done. What you 
can never do is to take up medicine as a cold business proposition and gain 
the regard, the esteem, the love, and the warmth of friendship of your 
patients. Your patients become your friends. The man without friends 
is to be pitied as is also the man without an enemy. **Praestat amicitia 
propinqiiitati/' There is no profession which brings more joy per hour 
than the one you have chosen, and there are so frequently twenty-four 
hours in the day. A life of service is held up to us as the ideal life. It is 
better to give than to receive. "It is better to be of service even to the bad 
for the sake of those who are good, than to fail the good on account of 
the bad." It is better "to be of use rather than to be conspicuous." 

Of thoroughness may I say a few words. If you care to be a master 
or to make true success of your profession, the smallest detail of your work 
must be done with thoroughness. We see in the trades, in the over-organized 
union labor of today, the disappearance of the master workman; the dis- 
appearance of the motive which prompts a man to make himself a master. 
This spirit is contagious but as yet it has penetrated only slightly into 
professional occupations. The average doctor wants to excel. He is not 
content to stop his education when his license to practice is given him. 
He cares more about curing his patient, rather he cares more about seeing 
that his patient is cured, than he does about collecting his fee. So long as 
this spirit predominates he will have the desire to be thorough in his work. 
To be thorough in medicine means that in the ever alluring present we 
do not forget the past. May I illustrate by one or two examples. The 
Roentgen ray has brought to us, within quite recent years, a means of put- 
ting ourselves in possession of some indisputable facts. We look at a chest, 
we see the pathology perhaps at a glance. We begin to depend upon this 
quick, positively recorded method of examination and become indifferent 
about our physical signs. We look at the abdomen. We are brought face to 
face with conflicting findings. By the old method we reasoned about the 
position of the stomach, its motility, its size and its conformation from an 
entirely different viewpoint. There is a temptation to neglect the old, the 
well tried methods. We revise our viewpoint and sometimes forget, that

the facts proven in the past must ever be our basis for sound reason in the 
future. Too frequently the student is lured by the picture, the spectacular, 
the something tangible, the positive. He goes away from the clinic filled 
with enthusiasm over having seen some horrible distortion of the body by 
a disease which has progressed beyond the peradventure of a possible cure. 
It is sometimes hard to interest him for example, in the man who appears 
ner\'ous, who complains of gastric distress, but presents only so called no7- 
mal stomach findings. He may not appreciate that this poor fellow is really 
complaining of the symptoms of a definite disease, a "wonderful clinic" 
in the making, but now uninteresting in the curable stage. 

So in practice the doctor may not realize that his nervous, vomiting 
patient, with a hyperacidity is just beginning a stage in a disease which may 
now be arrested, but which in a very short time may be beyond all human 
aid. While the doctor was engrossed in his gastric analyses, in the manipu- 
lations of his new gyromele, his intragastric bag, his duodenal cathetar, his 
stomach bucket, his gastrodiaphane, and his bismuth meal, fascinated by the 
spectacular, the something tangible, he ignored the patient's slight complaint 
of rheumatic pains in his legs ; he forgot to tap his patient's knee and look 
at his eye ; he continued to wash his patient's stomach until the patient, no 
better from this painstaking care, drifts into other hands, and it is found that 
his knee jerk is gone, his pupils react to accommodation but not to light, his 
urine starts hard, and his spinal fluid counts lOO cells to the cubic millimeter. 

Tlie careful physical examination and the carefully taken history are 
the back bone of medical success. Omit them if you will, your sin will 
surely find you out. The mistakes we all make come when we neglect our 
routine work. I have the greatest pity for the student who shirks his 
laboratory work and his physical examinations. H he is to become perfect 
in any of his work he must have made more examinations than can possibly 
come to him in his short clinical years. The student too often assumes the at- 
titude of once shown always known. Too often in percussion he delights to 
make a noise. Too often he is interested in the blowing breathing, not in 
the finer changes which precede it. Too often he shows little regard for 
fonn in his methods of work but is a stickler for it in golf and football. 
Any one can make a noise. Any one can hear a sound. But it takes a 
Mozart to compose and execute a symphony, a Skoda to interpret the signs 
of percussion and auscultation. Try to be a master! Try to perfect your 
methods and your interpretation ! We often hear of a man being a won- 
derful musician, a perfect operator. How frequently do we hear it said he 
is a wonderful percussor. Why is this? Is it because there are none who 
have peculiar ability in this direction or is it because there are only a few 
who have progressed far enough in this art to be able to judge. If you are 
studying scarlet fever, or measles, or typhoid, do not be satisfied with 
knowing the symptoms and the diagnostic signs. Any one can learn these. 
It does not even require a degree in medicine to know them. Theorize a 
bit! Wonder why the rash of scarlet fever is uniformly red and that of 
measles mottled, why the typhoid belly has rose spots and that of typhus 
rose and blue. If somebody does not wonder we shall never know. There 
is never a time in your medical training when you cannot begin to develop^

a creative genius. The building of medical air castles is good training. It 
carries you beyond the known into the unknown. Of course your castles 
will fall but that need not deter you, for all men of thought build them and 
see them fall. 

"For a* sage he looks, what can the laddie ken? 

He's thinkin upon naething, like mony mighty men; 

A wee thing makes us think, a sma' thing makes us stare; 

There are mair folks than him biggin castles in the air." 

The day is not far distant when it will be your absolute skill, not your 
glitter, that will draw men to you. The public is rapidly getting educated 
in matters pertaining to health. The man in the country as well as the man 
in the city will insist upon having the very best medical aid there is. The 
poor will resort to well organized dispensaries where they have the assurance 
that the social service workers will see that their cases are put into skillful 
hands. The doctor who hangs up his shingle and gives cheap medicine for 
the pittance he may exact from the poor will cease to exist and the world 
will be that much better. But a word of caution is necessary. While per- 
fecting yourself in one field of your undergraduate work do not do it at the 
expense of others. Only after you have completed your course, can you, in 
justice to your self and those you hope to care for, afford to favor one 
subject more than another. The danger of this is taught us by the exper- 
iences of the past. In the days of Skoda, as one of his biographers puts it, 
''practical medicine degenerated into simple diagnosis. By his observations 
on the 'natural course of disease undisturbed by therapeutics' he became the 
•direct and proper founder of a purely expectant or nihilistic therapeutics in 
Germany, and the author of a cheerless period in clinical practice. During 
this period instead of conceding (as would have been just) that, practical 
medicine can lay claim to only a slight active influence, it finally became an 
obligatory rule of faith to plead for the complete impossibility of any medical 
influence upon diseases, — and to manage at the bedside accordingly. Hence 
it .resulted that university professors and clinicians, ■ followers of Skoda, 
were able to make extremely nice, so-called exact diagnosis, but could no 
Ipnger write a prescription, though they had for pupils future practicing 
physicians alone, who accordingly from the outset must regard themselves 
^s mere superfluities or imposters." 

Of humanity a few words may not be amiss. It is human to be selfish, 
to be antagonistic, to be spiteful, to be superstitious, to be apprehensive. 
These traits of humanity are handed down to us from our simian ancestors. 
It is human to be kind, tolerant, forgiving, magnanimous, trustful, full of 
faith, compassionate. These traits have come to us through our association 
with those who are dear to us, through our touch with the softening in- 
fluences of home, time, and the sorrows we may have endured. Who comes 
<iuite so close to the sorrows of life and administers more to them than the 
physician. Who knows better the uplifting effect of a kind word. Who 
more than the physician has learned 

"To look on nature, not as in the hour 

Of thoughtless youth; but hearing often times 

The still, sad music of humanity."

I^ok for the medical man who is doing the most good, who is making 
the greatest real success of life. He will be found to be the man who has 
abundant kindness and unselfishness. The man who becomes great uncon- 
sciously. The man who seeks not public applause for his successful per- 
formance of duty according to the most approved methods. How often do 
we see men of ability fall short of true greatness because of the failure to 
subdue some human fraility. 

As in science, in art, so in humanity this university offers you a lab- 
oratory to work in. Do not neglect to make use of it. Do not forget that 
the patient entrusted to your care has the same human feelings as your 
mother, your sister, your brother. The illy clad woman sobbing, perhaps 
hysterically, in the waiting room needs a kind word. Her little world is as 
real to her as is ours. Her depth of feeling is the same. 

In a big hospital like ours where hundreds of sick people are being cared 
for daily we rely more or less upon you for their care. When a case is 
assigned you, work it up expeditiously. By so doing you may save your 
patient much mental or physical pain. Nowhere quite so much as in a 
hospital should our motto be — work first, play last. Do not slam the door. 
Do not walk heavily through the sick rooms. Do not talk loudly in the cor- 
ridors. Let us not fail to sense the importance of silence in a hospital. 
If we do we may fail in the same thing in private practice. Silence and 
gentleness should pervade the hospital. The successful hospital manage- 
ment brings this about, but it cannot be brought about without your co- 
operation. 

In closing may I add a few words about practice. You will each need 
a hospital year after graduation. This offers you a year free from the grind 
of class work, and an opportunity to get in closer touch with your profession 
and your patients. From the standpoint of business success you cannot 
afford to go without it. You cannot enter upon your interne service with 
too much seriousness. Endeavor to assume responsibility rather than to 
shift it. Be sure the group of patients entrusted to your care is the best 
cared for group in the hospital. 

In practice as in the hospital the uppermost thing in your minds should 
be the welfare of your patients. You must not be discouraged if your 
patients sometimes forget to appreciate this fact. There is an old proverb 
which says — ^happy is the physician who is called in at the end of the dis- 
ease. You will meet with this experience and it may balance the heart- 
ache which may have come to you when a patient or his friends fail to see 
the happy outcome of the work you have initiated. 

Be sure you know your limitations. It is best for us all to learn early 
in our careers that as "no man can climb out beyond the limits of his own 
character" so he cannot climb out beyond the limits of his own knowledge. 
Medical knowledge has progressed within recent years with such leaps and 
bounds that it is an utter impossibility for one man to compass it all. Most 
of you will go into general practice. I am still old fogy enough to 
believe that no matter what branch of medicine or surgery you may take 
up, all of you should, for the sake of yourselves and your patients, go into 
general practice for a time. I think you will make a better specialist if you

do. If you do this there are four subjects you must know thoroughly. 
They are internal medicine, the principles of surgery, diseases of children, 
and obstetrics. The supreme effort of the medical college should be to 
see that there is no question about your knowledge of these subjects. If 
you master these you will be master of the situation so far as your life as 
a physician is concerned. The man who perfects himself in surgery cannot 
find time to perfect himself in internal medicine, and likewise the man who 
endeavors to perfect himself in internal medicine cannot perfect himself as a 
surgeon. If he tries to do all some one must suffer for it. There is a very 
clean line between expert medicine and expert surgery. But we all fully 
appreciate the force of the saying of our much honored and beloved pro- 
fessor of surgery, — I am a medical man who operates. 

You will hear a great deal abouf medical ethics as if they were different 
from any other ethics. This subject can be summed up in two words 
common courtesy. Adhere to this principle. It really matters very little 
to you if your professional brother fails to appreciate it. He is the one to 
be pitied and the world will go on pitying him. The sad part about it is that 
he will not know it. Such men frequently go down to death with a chip 
unremoved from their shoulder. I would that I could exhort you to be big 
in spirit, to be normal in thought and action, to be steadfast in purpose. 

"If you can keep your head wlien all about you 

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, 

And make allowance for their doubting too; 
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, 

Or being lied about don't deal in lies, 
Or being hated don't give way to hating, 

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise. 

If you can dream and not make dreams your master; 

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim, 
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster 

And treat those two imposters just the same, 
If you can bear to hear the truth youVe spoken 

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools. 
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken. 

And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools. 

If you can make one heap of all your winnings 

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, 
And lose, and start again at your beginnings 

And never breathe a word about your loss ; 
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew 

To serve your turn long after they are gone, 
And so hold on when there is nothing in you 

Except the Will which says to them: Hold on! 
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, 

Or walk with Kings — nor lose the common touch. 
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, 

If all men count with you, but none too much; 
If you can fill the unforgiving minute 

With sixty seconds* worth of distant run. 
Yours is the earth and everything that's in it. 

And— which is more— you'll be a Man, my son.''

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November

ATHLETICS 



HARVARD. 7; MICHIGAN. 

Michigan went down to a glorious de- 
feat on Soldiers' Field at Cambridge on 
October 31st, when her inexperienced Var- 
sity held the veteran Harvard eleven to a 
7 to o score. 

The first and third quarters belonged all 
to Michigan, for it was then that Michigan 
' twice marchfed down the field, straight to- 
ward a touchdown. Save for the few 
minutes that Harvard was making her lone 
5core in the second period, Michigan was 
doing the best work. The first part of the 
last quarter was Michigan's, but in the last 
few minutes of play, Harvard began an- 
other onslaught on the Varsity goal, which 
was stopped on the 2S-yard line by the call 
of time. 

Head Coach Fielding H. Yost claimed 
after the game that his team should have 
won, and laid the defeat to errors in the 
selection of plays when the men were twice 
within easy striking distance of touch- 
•downs. 

In the first quarter hard plunges by 
Maulbetsch and short dashes by the other 
Michigan backs, took the ball to the Crim- 
son 5-yard line. Here a forward pass was 
signaled on the fourth down, but Splawn 
mixed signals and tried to run with the 
ball. He was downed behind his line, and 
Lyons, standing far back of goal line, never 
received the ball. 

On the other occasion, in the third period, 
Hughitt called for an unassisted line buck 
by Maulbetsch for the fourth down, and 
the half back was stopped. Both of these 
plays were of the type which usually take 
the heart out of a team, but each time the 
Varsity came back fiercely to the attack. 
It was only the equally stubborn resistance 
of the skillful Harvard defense which 
blocked the Wolverines. 

Harvard made the only touchdown of the 
game in the second quarter through the 
medium of a series of hard plunges and a 
successful forward pass. This latter play, 
in which Smith made a spectacular catch of 
the throw from Hard wick, seemed to de- 
moralize Captain Raynsford and his men 
for the moment, and they did not rally in 
time to block the final smash through the 
line which took Hardwick over for the win- 
ning? touchdown. 

Much to the surprise of the 25,000 people 



assembled to watch the intersectional game, 
the Michigan team failed to show its 
heralded open attack. Coach Yost was as 
much disappointed as the spectators. The 
success of Maulbetsch, pronounced phe- 
nomenal by eastern critics, in piercing the 
Harvard line by his smashing plunges, per- 
liaps drove all thought of open play out of 
the minds of the Varsity field leaders. 
Maulbetsch carried the ball farther on 
plunges than the whole Harvard backfield, 
and was easily the star player on the grid- 
iron in the intersectional battle. Walter 
Camp, the noted eastern expert, sitting on 
the sidelines, spoke of the Michigan half- 
back as the best plunger whom he had ever 
seen. As a result of these words of praise 
by the man whose All-American is each 
year considered the most authentic, Michi- 
gan rooters are looking to see Maulbetsch 
named for this mythical eleven. 

The game was a triumph for Yost and 
his coaching methods. Despite the fact 
that he was forced, in laying his plans for 
the game, to really waste Hughitt and 
Splawn on account of their injuries, he 
evolved an attack and defense which events 
proved should have won the victory. H 
the Varsity had but possessed the final 
"punch" inside the Crimson lo-yard line, 
two scores would have been marked up for 
Michigan. Harvard had this ability and 
made the score necessary to win. 

The Varsity line showed to surprising 
advantage in front of the veteran Crimson 
forwards. The Coach had evolved a for- 
mation which put nine Michigan mtn on 
the line, and by this means an offense was 
built up which opened up holes for Maul- 
betsch and the other Michigan backs. 

On defense, the Yost formations were 
effectual in stopping the Harvard backs 
when rightly used. The reason for the 
Crimson touchdown was the abandonment 
of the formation which the Michigan coach 
had evolved to meet the famous Harvard 
split buck. The Michigan guards were the 
weakest parts of the line, but the tackles 
and ends played far better than had been 
expected. Benton, working against the 
Crimson captain and Smith, stopped Har- 
vard end runs many times. Reimann was 
the chief bulwark in the Varsity defense, 
his . ability to break through the Harvard 
line costing the Crimson many yards.

Michigan's chief weakness was in get- 
ting down the field under punts. While 
the Harvard ends were able to down Hugh- 
itt in his tracks on practically every kick, 
the Crimson receiver of Splawn's punts 
made up many yards each time the Mich- 



JOHN MAULBBTSCH 

igan full back kicked. Benton was blocked 
•off easily, and it was generally a Michigan 
lineman who finally tackled the runner. 
Dunne proved a good tackier under punts 
in the short time he was in the game. 

The game by quarters was as follows : 
FIRST QUARTER. 

Michigan made the first gain of the game when 
-Captain Raynsford won the toss for position. He 
chose to defend the west goal, putting the slight 
breeze at his back and forcing the Crimson team 
to face the blinding sun. 

Withington kicked off to Splawn who returned 
the ball to the 30-yard line before he was downed. 
If aulbctsch was the . man selected to carry the 



ball first for Michigan, and he made 5 yards 
through the center of the Harvard line. Two 
more plunges, with I^yons and Maulbetsch carry- 
ing the ball in order, made the initial first down 
for tlie Varsity, and the Michigan rooters in the 
stands cheered wildly. 

Splawn and Maulbetsch made one more first 
down before the Michigan progress was stopped, 
with Acting Captain Trumbull as the chief cause. 
On an exchange in the middle of the field, Splawn 
tried a couple of on-side kicks, but the failure 
of I^yons to take advantage of the opening, left 
Harvard in possession of the ball. 

On their first attempt of the game at carrying 
the ball, Harvard fumbled and Hughitt pounced 
on the ball on the Crimson 40-yard line. An 
exchange of punts followed, with the Varsity 
finally getting the ball on the Harvard 47-yard 
line. Here started the Michigan march to the 
Crimson goal line. Hughitt made 7 yards on 
a squirming run past the Harvard right guard, 
Lyons made several yards more, and then Maul- 
betsch dashed through on a fake forward pass 
play, taking the ball to the ii-^ard line. Three 
plavs, with Maulbetsch as the chief ground gainer, 
took the ball to the 5 -yard line. 

But here a forward pass play went amiss when 
Splawn mixed the signals and the ball went to 
Harvard on downs, and was punted out of danger. 

SECOND QUARTER. 

Lyons started the play in the second quarter 
with a good gain, but on the next two plays 
Michigan was assessed penalties of 20 yards for 
holding and for off-side. An exchange of punts 
followed, with Harvard gaining a distinct ad- 
vantage. 

Harvard made a first down on Michigan's 30- 
yard line, and then a forward pass, Hardwick to 
Smith, put the ball on the Varsity 19-yard line, 
and the Michigan goal seemed in danger for the 
first time in the game. Three hard plunges by 
Francke, mixed with a smash Vy Hardwick, made 
it first down against the stubborn Michigan de- 
fense, and then another play by Francke through 
the line put the ball on the Michigan 6-yard line. 
With Captain Raynsford using an open defense, 
a split buck put Hardwick over for the Crimson 
touchdown. He kicked goal and the score stood 
Harvard 7, Michigan o. 

Splawn kicked off, sending the ball behind the 
Harvard goal line. The Crimson elected to scrim- 
mage on the 20-yard line, and a series of punts, 
with a few plunges mixed in, put the play in 
Michigan territory. Once Hughitt called for a 
forward pass, but the ball slipped off Lyon's hands 
into the arms of Logan. Shortly afterward a 
brief series of plunges by Maulbetsch and Splawn 
>ut the ball on the Crimspn side of the field, but 

chigan was forced to punt, and the half ended 
with the ball near the middle of the field. 

THIRD QUARTER. 

The first part of this quarter was a punting duel, 
with Harvard kicking at the first opportunity, and 
the Varsity trying each time- to start a dash 
toward the Harvard goal line. Maulbetsch was 
successful on the majority of his trials. 

After Splawn had punted over the Crimson 
goal line, the Varsity got the ball near the middle 
of the field and started on the second march down 
the field. Maiclbetsch carried the ball five out of 
every six times, with Splawn and Lyons helping 
him a little. By steady rushes the ball was 
taken inside the Harvard lo-vard mark, and it 
was fourth down with 3 yards to go. A final 
unassisted plunge by Maulbetsch failed to make 
the distance, and Francke punted out of danger. 
FOURTH QUARTER. 

With the ball on the Pfarvard 3S-yard line, two 
plunges by Lyons and Maulbetsch made it first 
down and another advance to the Crimson goal 
seemed started. But «ne of the officials had seen 
a Michigan man holding, and Splawn was forced 
to punt. Neither side again threatened to score.

although just at the end of the game Harvard 
was rushing toward the Varsity goal line. Both 
teams adhered closely to the punting game, and 
this time Splawn held his own with the powerful 
Hardwick. One of Splawn's punts put the ball 
on the Harvard 1 6-yard line, but Watson let 
Hard wick past for a 12-yard gain, and the Crim- 
son was out of danger. Splawn's last punt put the 
ball on Harvard's 20-yard line and the Crimson 
started a last onslaught on the Michigan line. 
Plunges by Hard wick and Francke, coupled with 
a 15-yard forward pass from Hardwick to Cool- 
idge put the ball on the Michigan 25-yard line just 
as time was called for the end of the game.

MICHIGAN. 69; CASE. 

For three quarters of the game against 
Case on October 3, the Varsity backs scored 
points for Michigan at the rate of two each 
minute. But in the final period, with a 
maze of substitutes in the line-up, the total 
dropped down to less than one every sixty 
seconds, and the grand total showed a count 
of 69 to o for the 40 minutes of play. 

It was a veritable procession for the Var- 
sity. Long gains by the backs were the 
rule rather than the exception. Splawn, 
Maulbetsch, Catlett and Hughitt shared the 
honors in this respect, all of them attack- 
ing the ends and the middle of the line with 
equal effectiveness. 

It required 3}^ minutes of play to ne- 
gotiate the first score. After this opening 
had been made the scoring was so fast that 
the time-keepers lost track of statistics. 
Ten touchdowns was the total made by the 
Varsitj', and nearly every man who claimed 
the privilege of carrying the ball was num- 
bered among those who made the 6 points 
by going over the last Case line. 

The Varsity linemen were at their best 
in this game, getting into the interference 
like veterans. Their good work at block- 
ing off the secondary defense was largely 
responsible for the effectiveness of the 
backfield men in getting away for their 
long runs. During the few moments when 
Case had the ball in her possession, the 
Wolverine forwards were particularly 



effective in breaking through and mussing 
up the plays before they were started. At 
not a single point in the game did the visi- 
tors even threaten to make progress with 
the ball, practically the whole game being 
played in Case territory. 

Catlett's performances, while he was in 
the game, were the principal features. Once 
he came very close to running the entire 
length of the field after the kick-off, but a 
Case tackier dashed up behind the dodging 
Wolverine and downed him. Hughitt was 
close behind Catlett with long, wriggling 
runs, his best work coming in the handling 
of punts. 

One of Michigan's touchdowns was made 
with but one play after the kick-off. The 
Varsity back took the ball from the Case 
man's toe and ran it far back into hostile 
territory. On the next play Hughitt dashed 
around the end for the final run to the 
score.

MICHIGAN. 27; MT. UNION. 7 

Mount Union was the first team to score 
on the Varsity during the present season, 
when they succeeded in scoring a touch- 
down in the last few minutes of play, 
through the medium of a series of forward 
passes which took the ball through the 
darkness past the last Michigan defense. 

The Varsity won the game by a score of 
27 to 7, a larger score than the strong 1913 
eleven had made against the fighting Ohio 
collegians. In the game on October 7, 
Mount Union put up an exceptionally 
strong fight, showing a surprising strength 
in the line and a successful attack by means 
of the forward pass formation.

Hughitt, Catlett, Splawn and Maulbetsch 
were the stars of this game for the Wol- 
verines, all reeling off end runs for big 
gains. Hughitt called on his men for the 
forward pass several times during the game, 
and in a majority of instances the Var- 
sity's attempts were successful in putting 
Michigan within scoring distance. Then 
Maulbetsch or Splawn would go over for 
the last few yards. 

Mount Union tried the forward pass 
repeatedly. Their formation was a short 
throw over the line, and in the last few 
minutes it was successful because of the 
darkness which hid the play from the Mich- 
igan defense. Twice the Varsity hurled 
back this attack, but each time the deter- 
mined college eleven came back strong, and 
at last made their score by a final plunge 
by Wilson. The officials then called the 

fame as the shadows completely hid the 
eld of play, making every play a matter 
of luck. 

The Varsity line did not shine particular- 
ly in this game, for the lighter opponents, 
fighting like mad all the time, more than 
held the Michigan forwards. Repeated at- 
tempts by the Varsity backs to gain through 
the line failed, and it was only by end run6 
from a punt formation that the Wolverines 
made their ground. 

Twice durmg the game Splawn negotiated 
drop kicks, once from the 23-yard mark 
and another time while standing on the 30- 
yard line. At another time a mix-up in the 
signals prevented still one more score from 
the field by this wizard kicker.

MICHIGAN. 23; VANDERBILT, 3 

In a sea of mud and with a torrent of 
rain falling during its latter stages, Mich- 
igan defeated the heavy Vanderbilt eleven 



on October 10 by a score of 23 to 3. The 
Commodore score came early in the first 
half when Cody made a perfect place kick, 
and put the Commodores ahead of the Var- 
sity. 

Michigan's attack and defense in this 
game proved that the Varsity eleven was 
able to rise above conditions and prove 
equal to the occasion, no matter what the 
handicap under which the men were forced 
to play. A slippery ball, uncertain footing 
and disagreeable conditions failed to slow 
the Michigan attack, and three touchdowns 
were scored on the strong Vanderbilt de- 
fense. There should have been at least two 
more touchdowns, for the Michigan backs 
fumbled the oval that manv times when 
they were inside the visitors 5-yard mark. 
Once Splawn let loose of the ball after he 
had gone over for the final distance, and 
on the other occasion the quarterback 
mussed up the pass to his backs. 

But despite these discouraging mistakes, 
the Varsity made their last touchdown after 
the Commodores had repeatedly hurled 
them back. 

As in the games which had come before, 
Maulbetsch proved to be the man to make 
the final few yards necessary for the score. 
Tw4ce this unstoppable plunger took the 
ball over the goal line, while Hughitt made 
the other score. Splawn missed an attempt 
at a drop-kick when the water-soaked ball 
slid around in his hands and the kick went 
low and short. 

Michigan tried the forward pass play but 
twice, the slippery condition of the ball 
making this play far from feasible. Except 
in the third quarter when Yost had a sub- 
stitute eleven in the field, the Vanderbilt 
attack was powerless in the face of the 
stubborn Michigan defense. The Varsity 
forwards outplayed their heavier and more 
experienced opponents at nearly every 
stage of the game.

MICHIGAN, 3; M. A. C. 

Before a throng of 13,000 people, the 
majority of whom were supremely confi- 
dent M. A. C. supporters, Michigan took 
revenge for the 1913 defeat at the hands of 
the Farmers by winning a 3 to o victory in 
a fiercely fought contest on October 17. 
Thereby not only was a blot wiped off the 
Michigan record, but about 2,000 Michigan 
men who were present, were given a chance 
to voice their jubilation in the Agricultural 
College stronghold. 

The Varsity played purely a defensive 
game, hiding their real strength from the 
scouts in the stands, and making jus^t 
enough points to win. Once the opponents 
came near scoring, but Michigan's defense 
held until the whistle brought an end to the 
first half. The ball was inside the Varsity's 
lo-yard line when the officials stepped in, 
having been brought there on long runs 
around Lyons and by hard smashes through 
the Michigan line. But outside of this one 
time, M. A. C. never dangerously threat- 
ened. 

Although the losers repeatedly threw 
back the Michigan offense despite the best 
attempts by the Varsity, Michigan had com- 
plete command of the game at all times. 
Quarterback Hughitt carefully conserved 
his attack, using only the simplest of for- 
mations until an opportunity of scoring 
came, and then he opened up. 

The chance came in the last quarter. 
Michigan got the ball near the middle of 
the field. , Hughitt called for a forward 
pass and Lyons made a perfect catch down 
on the M. A. C. 15-yard line. If he hadn't 
stumbled 'he would Have gone over for a 
touchdown, for the field in front of him 
was clear. A former trial of strength ear- 
lier in. the. game had shown the Varsity 
that it couldn't score a touchdown against 
the Farmers' defense, so Hughitt elected to 
hr'/ng Splawn's toe into action. The ball 
was taken to the middle of the field on two 
end runs, and then the Varsity kicker made 
the 3 points. 

M. A. C. led by their smashing captain. 
Fullback Julian, came back like demons, 
but the Wolverines held and the game was 
Michigan's. 

The game came near to proving disas- 
trous to Yost> hopes, for Hughitt suffered 
a dislocated left elbow in one of his tackles 
of Blake Miller. The injury at the time 
promised to keep him out of play for the 
re3t of the year, but later examination al- 
layed these fears. 

Captain Rayrisford and Cochran were the 
defensive stars in this battle for revenge. 



with Maulbetsch sharing the offensive hon- 
ors with Hughitt and Splawn. The Mich- 
igan line, for the first time during the 
season, was pitted against a vicious attack, 
but it was able to hold it in check through- 
out the four quarters. The Michigan right 
end, where Lyons was playing, was the 
weak spot in the Varsity's defense, and 
Blake Miller and Julian made long gains 
in this direction.

SYRACUSE, 20; MICHIGAN. 6 

With Quarterback Hughitt out of the 
game on account of his injured elbow, with 
two brand new ends in the line-up, and with 
Lyons trying to play a position at half back 
with which he was unfamiliar, Michigan 
lost to Syracuse in the easterners' stadium 
on October 24, by a score of 20 to 6. It was 
the first time in several seasons that an 
eleven had scored three touchdowns on the 
Michigan Varsity, and it was not until 
Tuesday that the Syracuse students ceased 
their celebration. 

Coach Fielding H. Yost declared after 
the game that Michigan had literally hand- 
ed the victory to the Orangemen. Bad 
breaks by the Varsity backfield were re^ 
sponsible for the Syracuse scores, which in 
at least two instances should never have 
been made, according to Yost. 

Once a punt, which should have placed 
the ball far up the field and out of danger, 
was carried back through the Michigan 
tacklers, and Syracuse rushed it over. At 
another time an off-side play gave them the 
ball on the Varsity's 4-yard line. It re- 
quired four rushes to put it over, but even 
the stalwart resistance which Michigan put 
forth could not prevent a touchdown under 
such a handicap. Catlett, who had gone in 
at full-back for the injured Splawn, was 
the man responsible for the break. After 
the game he broke down, and even the

assurances of his team-mates could not 
comfort him. Catlett was suffering from a 
shimp in his real form, for his regular 
playing this season has been of a high class. 

Had Splawn been able to continue in the 
game the result would have been different, 
according to the coach, in spite of the hand- 
icap of new men under which the Varsity 
was working. This kicker would have been 
able to make the extra point after touch- 
down which would have put Michigan out 
ahead by a 7 to 6 score, and also would 
have been able to punt out of danger at the 
critical moments. But he was not, and the 
critics were given their opportunity to pre- 
dict an overwhelmir.g victory for Harvard 
for the following week. 

Syracuse made her touchdown first, after 
Michigan had valiantly thrown back one 
threatened successful assault on her goal 
line. The home eleven started its march 
on the Michigan 35-yard line, and by suc- 
cessive rushes, always stoutly resisted, took 
the ball over. Rose failed to kick goal, and 
the Varsity was given its chance. 

The blue-clad players rose to the occasion, 
and with their only real display of offensive 
fight in the whole game, took the ball pver 
bv a perfectly-executed forward pass from 
Catlett to Lyons and a fina( plunge by 
Maulbetsch. All this happened in the third 
quarter, but in the next period Syracuse 
started its mowing tactics, and added the 
two last touchdowns which spelled bitter 
defeat to Yost and his men. Watson, who 
was called on to take the place of Splawn 
at kicking the goal, had missed, and de- 
prived Michigan of the shallo>y honor of 
having been at one time on the long end of 
the score. 



With Benton and Whalen playing ends 
for the first time, and with Lyons in the 
backfield, numerous shifts in the Michigan 
defense were necessary to balance the team. 
Despite this, the exhibition of stubborn re- 
sistance shown by Captain Raynsford and 
his men when Syracuse was trying to make 
a touchdown from the 4-yard line, sent the 
10,000 spectators wild with enthusiasm. 
Three times the smashing attack of Rose 
and Wilkinson was thrown back without 
gaining an inch. But the terrific strain was 
too much, and on the last time the Syracuse 
right half back went over.

Dear Professor Cooley:— 

You will recall the conference held last year 
in President Hutchins' room between the Deans 



of the various departments of the University and 
a committee from the faculty of Albion College. 
At that conference you suggested that it would 
be desirable for our faculty to provide for the 
first three ^ears of the Five Year Combined 
Literary-Engineering Course and to confer the 
Degree of Bachelor of Arts upon our students 
these three years of work and the 
work in the Department of Engi- 



who complete these three years of work and the 
Junior Year's work in the Department of Engi- 
neering of the University. Our faculty voted 
favorably and our committee has arranged the 



courses for three years as indosed. If you deem 
it wise to substitute for any of the courses raven 
in our outline other courses given in our Year 
Book, we shall be pleased to make the change. 

(The balance of the letter refers to cumcula 
and is omitted.)

KENOSHA, WW. 

The first full meeting of the Kenosha 
L^niversity of Michigan Club was held on 
Tuesday evening, September 22, at the res- 
idence of Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Lyman, 
and it was a niost enthusiastic gathering. 
From Mr. E. L. Grant, '66, and Mr. Lyman, 
'68, to the "infant," C. G. Pendill, '13, a 
goodly number of classes were represented. 
The complete enrolment follows: C. L. 
Grant, '66, F. H. Lyman, '68, H. J. Winsten, 
'98, Aart ' Van Westrienen, *ggfn, G. N. 
Tremper, '01, Miss Anna J. Miller, '05, J. 
F. Hastings, 'o6m, Mrs. J. F. Hastings,

Bermingham, 'o5-'o7, C. L. Ritter, 'o8e, R. 
S. Bogg, 'loe, J. Maurice Albers, ^'o6-'o9, 
Miss Florence B. Hammond, '12, Miss 
Katherine G. Tuomy, '12, A. H. Frehse, 
ex'i2^, C. G. Pendill, '13. 

G. N. Tremper is president of the Asso- 
ciation for the coming year, and C. G. Pen- 
dill is secretary and treasurer. All the 
ladies of the Association are to act as vice- 
president, when the necessity arises, in or- 
der of their graduation. 

The fore part of the evening was spent 
in swapping experiences, or as they were 
called "alumnicie^." Mr. Lyman has a 
wonderfully complete and well preserved 
collection of old pictures of professors, stu- 
dents and campus scenes, numerous copies 
of early catalogues and volumes of "The 
Palladium," as well as a fund of entertain- 
ing reminiscences. We sang to piano and 
mandolin accompaniment, and with diffi- 
culty settled down to business. It was 
moved that the next meeting be held on 
the evening of October 31, to celebrate the 
Harvard game, and arrangements were 
placed in the hands of a committee headed 
by Dr. Hastings. Even at this early date, 
plans were laid for the attendance of the 
whole club at the Chicago production of 
the Michigan Union Opera next spring. So 
enthusiastic and enjoyable was the meeting 
that it was a late hour when we sang the 
"Yellow and the Blue," cheered old Mich-

PASADENA ALUMNAE 

Mrs. Edward F. Parker entertained the 
Alumnae Association of Pasadena at a card 
party at the Altecena Country Club on Sat- 
urday, October 17. After enjoying a social 
game of 500, refreshments were served, 
during which a general and animated dis- 
cussion of the constitutional amendments, 
to be voted on at the November elections, 
took place. Those present were: Mesdames 
Mersereau, Bailey, Butler, Taylor, Parker, 
Clark, and Misses Henion, Cass, Brown, 
and Carhart. 

Alice C. Brown, Secretary. 



SAN FRANCISCO 

A Michigan luncheon and smoker was 
held at the Hof Brau Cafe by the San 
Francisco Association, on Saturday, Oc- 
tober 31. Detailed reports of the Michigan- 
Harvard game were sent in by direct wire 
from the grounds. 

NEW YORK 

Some time during the summer the New 
York Alumni extended a luncheon to Hon. 
Thomas J. O'Brien, '65/. The vaguely dated 
Gothamite for Midsummer, 1914, (Vol. 5, 
No. 8), gives the following interesting par- 
ticulars, but is somcAvhat reticent regarding 
the date. The omission was noted too late 
for The Alumnus to send a "tracer" for 
the lost article. But the "story" is just 
as good. 

After a short informal reception and a 
mingling and chatting of old friends 
and new in the lobby of the Lawyers* Club, 



the room set apart for the luncheon was 
comfortably filled by the fifty-six members 
and guests, and immediately the buzz of 
conversation was resumed. 

The buzz suddenly died down and as 
suddenly changed to a roar — the old U. of 
M. yell. And a yell it was. Strange how 
a college man can forget all he ever learned 
(or learned to bluff about) in Math, Phys- 
ics, Torts, Greek or Materia Medica, but he 



THOMAS JAMES O'BRIEN, '65L, LL.D. '08 
U. S. Minister to Denmark, Japan and Italy 

never forgets his old-time college yell. It 
brings him back over a stretch of long ab- 
sence from the scenes of the best time of 
his life and transplants him into the land of 
memory. When carried along on that wave 
of psychologic impulse, nothing seems im- 
probable or impossible to him. "Prexy*' 
Gene Worden sensed this immediately with 
that ever-working mind of his, and fran- 
tically signaled to Wade Greene to get 
around and collect some dues, but Wade 
was at that moment too far up in the 
stands, back in the old "Michigan Hurry" 
times, yelling for the backs to put over a 
few more touchdowns. So was the rare 
opportunity lost. 

And Wade was by no means the only one 
to recall the scenes of memory. Some 
among the crowd were down on that field 
in the old days, not rooting but fighting 
for the Maize and Blue. One in particular 
felt the tension of alert muscles waiting 
for the ball to be snapped. "Mort" Senter, 
'90-'95, w*9S-'97, just back from a long stay

in the jungles of Colombia, S. A., was a 
mighty strong factor on the football team 
back there in the '90s. He was on the 
team on that famous trip East, playing end, 
when Harvard scored that lone heart- 
breaking touchdown against them. To such 
men it means a heap to get together to 
talk over old times with old chums and 
hear the old songs and yells. 

After a short opener by Prexy Worden, 
Mr. Babst spoke in his usual nailhitting 
style on the subject which has been his pet 
for some time — of the prominence of Mich- 
igan men in the public life of the nation. 
"With a prevalence of college men in the 
administrative and executive offices of the 
country and its possessions, Michigan leads 
in some, and comes close to leading 
in many other departments of the State 
and nation. This is no idle boast, but is 
a fact, of which we are justly proud." This 
was the gist of his talk, which ended with 
words of praise for the work done by Am- 
bassador O'Brien, both for his service to 
his country and his part in elevating the 
status of Michigan. 

The genial president next introduced a 
man from the Mikado's Isle, where Mr. 
O'Brien served some four years as Ambas- 
sador. Dr. Toyokichi lyenaga was intro- 
duced as a neighbor of ours, having grad- 
uated in 1887 from Oberlin, taking his 
Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins in 1890. His talk 
was a marvel. If the staid English lan- 
guage can be made at once so straight to 
the point and so artistically flowery by one 
to whom it is a comparative stranger, the 
Japanese tongue must certainly be capable 
of the most delicate and beautiful phrase- 
ology. 

Dr. lyenaga spoke of the diplomatic re- 
lations between Japan and the United 
States, which started with the advent of 
Admiral Perry with his peaceful fleet of , 
war in the principal harbor of that country, 
which had for all time been barred to for- 
eigners. From this start the peaceful rela- 
tions which existed with this country kept 
on unbroken for half a century; foreign 
trade with all the nations was built up, 
and the Japanese prospered and forged 
ahead as a result of their sudden awaken- 
ing. But, as is the case with most civilized 
nations, the dove of peace was incarcerated 
and generally maltreated when the little 
brown men so vigorously twisted the tail 
of the Chinese Dragon, and showed their 
prowess on both land and sea when they 
stopped the growls of the Russian Bear. 

The prestige thus gained as a nation of 
war caused various rumors as to an inten- 
tion on their part to expand territorially by 
seizing the Philippines and Hawaii. Quite 
a large element fully believed this to be a 
certamty, and Nippon was looked upon as 



a deadly menace to the United States in 
particular. This state of mind of the 
American people, made much of as it was 
in the newspapers, together with the first 
mutterings of the trouble over the Cali- 
fornia land question, served to make the 
diplomatic relations between the two coun- 
tries rather strained. 

All this was just prior to the time that 
Mr. O'Brien took the ambassadorial reins 
in hand. While it cannot be said that the 
state of the feelings between the Japanese 
and the Americans is as amicable as in that 
peaceful half century before, Dr. lyenaga 
assured us that from the time Mr. O'Brien 
had taken charge until he returned the re- 
lations had shown a most remarkable 
change on the side of improvement. And, 
indeed, with a nation of men of the type 
of Dr. lyenaga, one cannot imagine any 
but pleasant and prosperous relations to 
prevail. 

Mr. O'Brien replied briefly, with an ex- 
pression of his appreciation of the honor 
tendered him by the Club and a sincere 
desire for the success of all Michigan men. 
It was somewhat of a surprise to him to 
learn that there are such a large number 
of our alumni in New York City. Quite 
a sure sign, indeed, of the extensive dis- 
tribution of the graduates. 

MINNEAPOUS ALUMNAE 

The Club of University of Michigan Wo- 
men of Minneapolis was entertained Thurs- 
day, October 29, at the home of the pres- 
ident, Mrs. F. S. Martin, '79-'8i, (Florence 
Charles). 

The officers elected for the coming year 
are: Mrs. John B. Johnston, '97, (Juliet 
M. Butler,) president; Miss Betsey Lee 
Hopkins, '95, vice-president ; and Miss Min- 
nie Duensing, '04, secretary and treasurer.

Secretary for 1913-1914. 

A -REUNION ODE" BY PRESIDENT 
TAPPAN 

The following reunion ode by Michigan's 
first President, Henry Philip Tappan, is an 
interesting supplement to Mr. Finney's arti- 
cle on his literary remains now in the Uni- 
versity Library. We take this from the 
July- August number of the Union Alumni 
Monthly. It is dated 1825, and was there- 
fore written when President was a senior 
at Union. 

REUNION ODE. 
Air : America, 

Brothers I we're here once more — 
Not as in davs of yore. 

When life was )roung. 
And 'mid that morning lignt, 
Hope, as an angel bright, 
Before our raptured sight 

Her visions hung.

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[November 



Home of our early thought I 
Where, hand in hand, we sought 

Knowledge and truth. 
Receive us back again, 
Coming as care-worn men, 
As you received us then 

In early youth. 

Some are not with us here — 
Their mem'rv claims a tear — 

The hallowed dead I 
To brighter worlds now flown. 
Their work of life well done. 
For noble thoughts were sown 

Ere they had fled. 

Here let us pledge our truth, 
As erst in early youth, 

Faithful to be I 
The honored name we bear. 



The holy trusts we share. 
Claim that we do and dare 
All manfully. 

A higher life to live, 

More precious gifts to give ; 

This is our part ; 
That, when our work is done 
And we the prize have won, 
We, like the setting sun, 

May hence depart. 

So say we all of us. 
So say we all of us. 

So say we all; 
So say we all of us, 
S« say we all of us. 
So say we all of us, 

So say we all. 

Henry Philip Tappan, 1825.

done something more than merely add one 
more to the many thin books of miscel-

themes, and grouped only under the simple

some cases, notably in the sonnet entitled 
"Rossetti," careless proof reading has re- 
sulted in bad spelling and the obscurity is 
not the poet's fault The work of the 
volume as a whole is promising in spirit 
and temperament and should interest lovers 
of poetry in 'Mr. Oine's future work.

THE LATER CONTEMPORARIES OF 
SHAKESPEARE 

In the third, as in the first volume of his 
Representative English Comedies, Profes- 
sor Charles Mills Gayley has gathered the 
critical opinions of a number of American 
and English scholars on an interesting 
group of the later contemporaries of 
Shakespeare and introduces their work with 
the second part of the essay which was 
begun in the second volume, on a compara- 
tive view of Shakespeare's followers. The 
critical essays, each of which introduces a 
separate play, are all in substantial agree- 
ment with Professor Gayley's opinion that 
the oblivion which has fallen upon the 
plays is not altogether undeserved. Pro- 
fessor A. F. Lange, of California, edits and 
discusses Dekker; H. Butler Clarke, of 
Oxford, Middleton and Rowley; Professor 
Saintsbury, of Edinburgh, writes on Flet- 
cher; Brander Matthews on Massinger; 
George P. Baker on Brome, and Sir A. W. 
Ward, of Cambridge, on Shirley. 

The effort in editions and introductory 
discussion has been to meet the needs of 
the student rather than the general reader, 
and the volume contains a surprising col- 
lection of historical data and discussion. 
Not only the individuals, but theatrical his- 
tory and general movements are discussed. 
Professor Saintsbur/s essay on Fletcher 
is not so complete, perhaps, as the others, 
but makes up for it in spirit and style. The 
editions of the plays are modernized only 
as much as seems necessary. Editions, 
notes, and critical essays together offer the 
student a copiously detailed description of 
the principal plays and poets of the period 



beginning with Shakespeare's late maturity 
and ending twenty years after his death.

FACULTY 
SALARIES 
ADVANCE 



Last month we sug- 
gested that the in- 
crease in the income 
of the University 
through the re-equalization of proper- 
ty values in the State might have some 
cdHFect upon the professorial salary. 
The expected has come to pass. At the 
last meeting of the Regents the aggre- 
gate appropriation for professorial 
salaries in the University was in- 
creased by about $40,000.00. The im- 
mediate rehef came as it properly 
should, in the lower ranks, where the 
need of some increase commensurate 
with the increase in the cost of living 
has been particularly pressing. CH This 
change in the salary schedule affects 
a large proportion of the instructors 
and assistant professors in the Liter- 
ary Faculty and the academic 
Faculty in the Engineering De- 
partment, whose rate of payment 
has in every case been increased 
by at least $100. Formerly the in- 
structor started at a salary of $900, 
gradually increasing to $1,400. Under 
3ic revised schedule he starts at $1,000 
and is gradually promoted to $1,600. 
The same is true with certain modifi- 
cations in the other ranks. The revis- 
ed scale is as follows: Instructors, 
$i,ooo$i,6oo, formerly $900-$! 400; 
assistant professors, $i,7oo-$2,ooo, 
formerly $i,6oo-$i,8(X); junior profes- 
sors, $2,ioo-$2400, formerly $2,000- 
$2,200; professors, $2,500-$4,ooo, for- 
merly $2.5oo-$3,5oo. The changes in 
salaries affect more than 200 per- 



sons. CH While these changes arc by 
no means as large as they should be, 
they indicate a readiness on the part 
of the Univ^ersity to recognize the 
problem involved in the cost of living 
for instructor and professor. The 
schedule even now is not as high as 
in some of our neighboring univer- 
sities, but it is at any rate the first 
step toward a new order of things. 



MICHIGAN 
AND ALBION 
CO-OPERATE 



In the editorial taken 
from The Detroit 
News published in 
The Ai^umnus last 
month, we had evidence of the quick 
appreciation of the plans for co-opera- 
tion between the University and Al- 
bion College, which may be expected. 
In fact, this came almost before the 
idea was perfected, for it was not un- 
til October 17 that the final details of 
the arrangement were approved by a 
joint committee of the two faculties. 
The recommendations made by this 
committee were approved by the Re- 
gents at their November meeting, and 
may now be considered definitely 
fixed, dt Though the scheme contem- 
plates co-operation only between Al- 
bion and the Engineering Department 
of the University, the possibilities 
which it introduces arc far-reaching. 
Now that the first step has been taken, 
it would hardly be surprising to find 
co-operation betwe«j oUier colleges in 
the State and other departments of the 
University. Not only does tiie pro-

posed action indicate a way to bring 
the University into a closer co-opera- 
tion with the smaller colleges of the 
State, an end in itself particularly de- 
sirable, but it also makes possible, for 
those who desire it, the advantages of 
the more intimate life of a small col- 
lege during the earlier years of the 
college course. 



Like many actions of 
DETAILS OF THE a revolutionary na- 
PROPOSED COURSE ture, the actual pro- 
visions for this com- 
bination between the University and 
Albion College are exceedingly simple. 
In general, it is supposed that the stu- 
dent will spend three years at Albion 
College and two years at the Univer- 
sity. At the end of his first year's 
work in the University, provided the 
report is satisfactory, he will receive 
his A.B. from Albion College, the lat- 
ter institution being willing to accept 
the work done in the University as be- 
ing equivalent to the fourth year. Up- 
on completing the requirements for 
graduation from the Engineering De- 
partment, the student receives from 
the University the degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Engineering. CH The 
work performed at Albion will be of 
such character and extent as to enable 
the student in the combined course to 
enter the third year of the regular en- 
gineering course at the University, 
though certain minor adjustments will 
have to be made involving the giving 
of courses, which would normally 
come in the third year in the Engi- 
neering Department, at Albion, in or- 
der that the student may not be hand- 
icapped by having to make up certain 
other courses which would normally 
come in the second year at Ann Ar- 
bor, for which facilities are not avail- 
able at Albion College. Though Al- 
bion requires the same number of 
units for entrance as the University, 
it does not insist upon physics or 
chemistry or three units of mathemat- 
ics. These have been added to the 



course at Albion, so that the student 
will have covered the work necessary 
to enable him to enter the third year 
when he makes the change. It is also 
to be noted that in the third year of 
the combined course, an average of 
seven hours is allowed for electives, 
with a view to fitting the student to 
enter some of the specialized branches 
of engineering at the University. Pro- 
vision is also made for a certain 
number of cultural courses. 



NOW rr IS OVER 



It is an unfortunate 
fact that the score 
counts more in any 
game than the way it 
is played. So Michigan's team this 
year must be considered only partly 
successful, for it cannot be denied 
that the record is a checkered one. 
But the schedule — a long and hard 
one, with five games of major impor- 
tance, or counting Vanderbilt, six, in 
as many weeks, must be considered a 
more than sufficient excuse, particu- 
larly for a green team. CH Starting 
early with a close call at Lansing, 
when one field goal was the margin of 
victory over the Agricultural College, 
and a defeat the following week at 
Syracuse, the ability of the team to 
hold Harvard to one score came as a 
great surprise. Nor was the good 
feeling engendered between the repre- 
sentatives of East and West the least 
satisfactory part of this game. The 
Pennsylvania game on the following 
Saturday gave even more ground for 
satisfaction. It was a decisive vic- 
tory and by a greater score than in any 
previous game with Pennsylvania, un- 
less it was the 1908 game, when Penn- 
sylvania won 29 to o. Then came the 
unfortunate conclusion of the season. 
Cornell was admittedly a strong 
team, but Michigan thought she had 
some reason to believe that she was at 
least Cornell's equal. The event 
proved the contrary, though the team 
when it met Cornell was by no means 
as strong as it was when it played

Harvard and Pennsylvania. (S. Not a 
little of this lack of success, as has 
been suggested, can be ascribed to the 
schedule. Even though, theoretically, 
it matters little whether the game is 
lost or won, it surely does matter 
whether the physically impossible is 
asked of competitors in college sport. 
Is it not too much to ask a team to 
make a showing, in the face of such a 
schedule as Michigan had for the sea- 
son just ended, creditable to an insti- 
tution of her athletic standing? A 
game is a game, played on Ferry Field, 
or on Soldier's Field, and Harvard is 
as worthy an opponent on one place 
as the other, but we wonder whether 
there is not a little sacrifice of dignity, 
if there be such a thing as college dig- 
nity, in submitting to conditions which 
our opponents are not willing' in their 
turn to see imposed upon themselves. 
We would, however, rejoice with ev- 
eryone to see reciprocal relations es- 
tablished with Harvard, which did not 
ask superhuman efforts from the team. 



Dr. Talcott Williams, 
^/JANflLUON Dean of the School 
GRADUATES ^^ Journalism of Co- 
lumbia University, in 
an address given before the Maryland 
alumni of Columbia last April, stated 
that ten years ago, according to care- 
ful estimates made by Professor Wil- 
cox, of Cornell, there, were two hun- 
dred thousand college graduates in the 
United States. These came from a 
body of twenty million adult men in 
this country, a percentage of one in 
one hundred. To these two hundred 
thousand might be added the grad- 
uates of professional schools, making 
a total of not over two hundred and 
thirty to two hundred and forty thou- 
sand. CC This number has, of course, 
increased within the last ten years, so 
that it would not be an unreasonable 
estimate to suppose that there are at 
least four hundred thousand college 
graduates in this country at present. 
Possibly with the graduates of profes- 



sional schools and women graduates 
the number would be nearer five hun- 
dred thousand. There is no doubt but 
that in this body we have the greatest 
guiding and directing force in the de- 
velopment of our national life and civ- 
ilization. Dr. Williams points out that 
though the college man forms no 
more than one hundredth of the total 
men in the country, he forms over fif- 
ty percent of those named in "Who'« 
Who," the best single measure we 
have of effective <:itizenship. 



This body of college 
CO-OPERATION graduates is becom- 
FORCOUXGEMENing conscious of the 

force that lies within 
it, as the growth of alumni organiza- 
tion in the past twenty-five years 
plainly shows, even if its expression 
has been heretofore confined largely 
to the relationship between the alum- 
nus and his own institution. The tre- 
mendous value of this organized and 
intelligent support on the part of the 
graduates of American colleges and 
universities is now so generally recog- 
nized that we are in the way to forget 
how recent this development is. CH The 
appreciation of a possible mission of 
organized alumni in the larger nation- 
al life has been more inarticulate. That 
this day is passing, and that, in addi- 
tion to recognizing the duty to their 
own institution, American college 
alumni are coming to recognize a high- 
er responsibility may be seen from the 
article on "Social Work Among Col- 
lege Alumni'' on page 146. Co-opera- 
tion has not proceeded far as yet, but 
several organizations in New York 
and elsewhere are aiming to bring the 
graduates of all colleges into work for 
civic and social improvement The 
movement has served in the cities 
where it has been established to carry 
alumni organization beyond the prob- 
lems of the separate institutions (im- 
portant they surely are), into the 
broader field of public life. The firing 
line is truly of impressive proportions;

we cannot see all that will develop 
from this movement, but as one repre- 
sentative at Columbia said, "We are 
on our way." 



AMEETINGOF 

ALUMNI 

SECRETARIES 



The recent meeting 
of Alumni Secreta- 
ries at Columbia Uni- 
versity was an evi- 
dence of the serious consideration that 
American universities are devoting to 
alumni problems. This was shown, 
not only by the fact that sixty-two 
universities were represented and that 
delegates came from the far West, the 
extreme South and the Northwest, as 
well as from the Mid West and East- 
em States, but by the spirit in which 
the men from the various universities 
approached their work. We are com- 
ing to recognize more than ever be- 
fore that the function of the univer- 
sity does not cease with the gradua- 
tion of the student. The potential 
power of the hundreds of thousands 
of graduates of the different universi- 
ties, as far as they concern their own 
institution, is well recognized, even 
though development of a sympathetic 
and stimulating relationship between 
the university and the alumnus has 
not proceeded far in some universi- 
ties. Even universities which have 
most effective and strongly organized 
bodies feel that there is more to do 
than they have done so far, while the 
co-operation of the alumni of various 
universities in dealing with certain 
problems of national life which might 
quite possibly be effectively handled 
by such a body has received very little 
consideration, either by universities or 
by alumni bodies. (S. At the meeting 
in New York, the problems of im- 
mediate interest naturally received the 
greater share of consideration, as will 
be seen from the program on page 126. 
We have always with us the problems 
of effective organization, the raising of 
funds, the publication of alumni re- 
cords and the alumni magazine. But 
in each university they are conditioned 



by the particular form of its organiza- 
tion. In the statements of the indivi- 
dual problems and the means that 
were taken to meet them, and the give 
and take of the general discussions 
by the representatives of the various 
universities, were found valuable sug- 
gestions and decided inspiration. The 
spirit of the whole meeting was an 
uplifting and altruistic recognition of 
the relationship of alumni organiza- 
tion toward the bettering not only of 
college and university Hfe, but also the 
national civiHzation. 



Like the often quoted 
TYPES OF ALUMNI problem of the egg or 
ORGANIZATION the chick, the ques- 
tion was raised at the 
recent meeting of Alumni Secretaries 
by Dean Keppel, of Columbia, as to 
whether the alumni secretary was the 
result of the association, or the asso- 
ciation the result of the secretary. 
Subsequent discussion revealed the 
truth of both hypotheses in different 
colleges. In most universities, the 
alumni organization is an evolution re- 
sulting from certain practical condi- 
tions which have defined the precise 
form the alumni activities come to as- 
sume. The general alumni association, 
in many colleges, is a direct child of 
the local organization, while in others 
it rests rather upon the organization of 
classes. This is particularly true at 
Yale, while Harvard's organization 
rests upon the local alumni club. 
Cn; Michigan's type of organization 
differs from both in having no vital 
connection with the local association 
or with the class organization. By 
that we mean that the election of offi- 
cers and the control of the fundamen- 
tal policies of the Association rest in 
no way upon the local associations or 
upK)n class organizations, but upon a 
general meeting of all alumni who 
meet once a year at Commencement, 
primarily to elect officers, and to pass, 
in rather a perfunctory way, truth to

tell, upon whatever business may be 
presented at that time. The Associa- 
tion quite probably would gain in ef- 
fectiveness if some closer connection 
might be maintained between the Gen- 
eral Association and both types of sub- 
sidiary organization. There are cer- 
tain advantages in our tenuous and 
loose form of association, particularly 
in the freedom it leaves the executive 
officer, but insofar as it gives the indi- 
vidual alumnus no feeling of responsi- 
bility towards the organization, it ex- 
hibits an unfortunate weakness. 



For some time the 
LOCAL ALUMNI officers of the Gener- 
ORGANiZATiONS al Association have 
been trying with 
some degree of success to remedy this 
condition by stimulating the organiza- 
tion of local associations and classes. 
Reference to the list of local associa- 
tions in the front pages of The 
Alumnus will show that we bave one 
hundred and thirty-one local associa- 
tions, most of them fairly active, many 
of them decidedly so. Likewise, we 
have recorded the addresses of one 
hundred and twenty-five class secre- 
taries, most of whom are interested in 
their work, and are glad to avail them- 
selves of all suggestions and help 
which the General Association is able 
to furnish. CH To bring the local asso- 
ciation into closer touch with the Gen- 
eral Association and the University, 
an Advisory Council has been estab- 
lished, in which local associations with 
over fifty members are entitled to rep- 
resentation. This council meets once 
or twice a year to consider questions 
which pertain to the University as 
they affect, or are affected by, the 
alumni. Included in the scheme of 
organizaticm is an executive commit- 
tee which shall have a more intimate 
relationship between alumni and Uni- 
versity, and act in a specific advisory 
capacity. That not a great deal has 
been accomplished to date by this or- 



ganization does not necessarily imply 
that much could not be done, if the 
machinery we have were properly un- 
der way. 



ORGANIZING 
THE LOCAL 
ASSOCIATION 

:ult problem. 



How to organize the 
local alumni associa- 
tion into an effective 
UiUt is usually a diffi- 
It is not a question of 
getting the "old guard" who are al- 
ways present, and always enthusiastic, 
out for the meeting, but ot reaching 
all the alumni, and making them in- 
terested and enthusiastic as well. The 
Chicago Association has evolved a 
scheme which is proving successful, 
and might be even more feasible for 
some of the smaller associations where 
the percentage of personal, acquaint- 
ance among the members is probably 
higher. Ct This plan involves the or- 
ganization of an executive council 
which meets for the consideration and 
promotion of definite work undertak- 
en by the Association. This council 
consists of over 130 members, arawn 
from all the classes represented in 
Chicago. The larger classes, partic- 
ularly of the later years, have several 
representatives on the council. The 
general organization is in touch with 
these class representatives, and if it 
is desired to hold a meeting or bring 
the alumni together for any purpose, 
the word is passed on to certain com- 
mittee chairmen, who communicate in 
turn with the class representatives. 
Each of these call up on the telephone 
a list of their own classmates. In this 
way, within a few hours, or a day at 
most, practically all of the alumni in 
Chicago can be informed of any plan 
which is on foot, and an immediate 
response can be obtained, d. The Cor- 
nell Alumni Association in Chicago 
has a similar arrangement, which one 
Cornell alumnus interprets in electri- 
cal terms. The total alumni list in Chi- 
cago is divided up into fifty squads of 
from eight to sixteen men, who are

[December 



presided over by a "live wire." Five 
"live wires" are presided over in turn 
by one man, the "trunk line." The ten 
"trunk lines" are divided into two 
squads of five each who report to the 
"transformers," who in turn are re- 
sponsible to the "big dynamo," the 
chairman of the ways and means com- 
mittee. When the secretary desires to 
get a crowd out to a banquet, he starts 
the dynamo up, gives the desired in- 
formation to the transformer, who 
discharges the news to the trunk lines, 
who in turn transmit their energy to 
the "live wires," and the revivifying 
influence of their sparking produces 
enough energy in the corpses and in- 
valids to make the banquet a resurrec- 
tion. It is only necessary to add that 
it is the treasurer who oils the dyna- 
mo. The electrical terminology may 
be criticised by engineers, but the idea 
is sufficiently plain. 



To the Advisory 
OF cSS^™'^ Council another gen- 
SECRETARIES ^^^^ organization has 

been added in the 
form of the Association of Class Sec- 
retaries, which was organized Novem- 
ber 7, as reported on page 129. While 
the function of the Advisory Council 
is to bring the alumni into closer 
touch with the University, and to 
make the mature ability and experi- 
ence of the alumni of service to the 
University, the function of the Class 
Secretaries Association is r a t h e r to 
help the class secretaries in their work 
of gathering records, of keeping track 
of their classmates, and of stimulating 
their interest in the University 
through class publications and reun- 
ions. CH The relation of this body to 
the General Association is not neces- 
sarily intimate. The only actual link 
is the General Secretary, who is a 
member ex officio of the executive 
committee, according to the new con- 
stitution. In practice, however, the 
organization is bound to co-operate ra- 
ther intimately with the General Asso- 



ciation, which for years has under- 
taken the work of the organization and 
stimulation of reunions, and to a cer- 
tain extent the gathering of records. 
This side of the activities of the Gen- 
eral Association will not be lessened 
by the new organization. Rather, it is 
to be hoped it will be increased, 
through the growth of interest and ef- 
ficiency on the part of the class secre- 
tary, who will profit by the experience 
and enthusiasm of others engaged in 
like work. 



The first task before 
SOME TASKS this new Association 
BEFORE rr is the publication of a 
handbook, and the 
preparation of some standard method 
for the gathering and filing of class 
records. Such a handbook as is con- 
templated should contain a general 
discussion of the work of the class 
secretary, notes on the best method of 
procuring and classifying individual 
records, what should and what should 
not be included, general hints on the 
publication of class books and the fi- 
nancing of class organizations, and 
other matters of interest to the class 
secretary. CC In addition, samples of 
various forms which are to be pre- 
pared for the class secretaries will be 
included, and a scale of prices will be 
established, so that the class secreta- 
ries may obtain them at the lowest 
possible cost. Such a work involves 
necessarily a certain financial problem 
which was not met at the recent meet- 
ing when the Association was organ- 
ized. The article providing for a mem- 
bership fee was stricken out, and the 
question of financing the whole mat- 
ter was left to the executive commit- 
tee. This problem promises to be a 
pertinent one as soon as definite activ- 
ities are undertaken by the Associa- 
tion. Voluntary contributions by the 
secretaries interested in the work may 
furnish sufficient help until the Asso- 
ciation is under way, and some definite 
method of maintenance is evolved.

EVENT IN BRIEF 

"Pomander Walk," by L. N. Par- 
ker, has been chosen as the annual 
play of the Comedy Club, to be pre- 
sented some time after the opening of 
the second semester. 

Theodore W. Koch, Librarian of 
the University, delivered an illustrated 
lecture on "Book Plates" at the De- 
troit Museum of Art on November 
15. It was given as one of the Uni- 
versity Extension lectures. 

The third annual chrysanthemum 
exhibit was opened in Alumni Me- 
morial Hall on Saturday, October 31, 
and continued until the end of No- 
vember. About three thousand plants 
were sho\yn, including the green ones 
which created so much interest last 
. year. 

Professor Henry C. Adams, and his 
family, who have been in China for 
the past year, returned to Ann Arbor 
on November 7. Professor Adams 
was called to China by the government 
to devise an accounting system for the 
railroads which they had taken over. 
He will resume his courses in political 
economy next semester. 

In return for the facsimiles of the 
Freer Manuscripts, the American Bi- 
ble Society has presented to the Uni- 
versity Library nearly one hundred 
editions of the Bible. They are print- 
ed in a number of languages, includ- 
ing the languages of Europe and Asia, 
and the dialects of the North Ameri- 
can Indians and of African tribes. 

Professor John R. Brumm, of the 
Rhetoric Department, was appointed 
as the delegatt of the School Masters' 
Club and of the State Teachers Asso- 
ciation at the meeting of the National 
Council of Teachers of English, held 
in Chicago, November 26-28. Profes- 
sor F. N. Scott, head of the Rhetoric 
Department, was also present, and de- 
livered an address. 



Mr. H. M. Leland, of Detroit, con- 
sulting general manager of the Cadil- 
lac Motor Car Co., spoke before the 
Sunday afternoon meeting of the 
Michigan Union on November 29, tak- 
ing as his subject, "Character in Busi- 
ness." 

At the November meeting of the 
Regents, J. C. Christensen, at present 
Assistant Secretary of the University, 
was appointed Purchasing Agent of 
the University, succeeding Charles L. 
Loos, whose resignation takes effect 
January i, 1915. 

Shipments of glassware from Ger- 
many, billed to the University of 
Michigan, have recently been received 
in New York. These shipments are 
part of a lai^e order of chemical sup- 
plies, the greater part of which were 
sent before the war. The material in 
the shipment is intended for the 
Chemical Department, where there is 
an almost immediate need for it. 

Paintings by Mr. F. Usher De Vol! 
and Mr. H. E. Barnes were on exhibi- 
tion in the large gallery of Memorial 
Hall from November i to November 
15, under the auspices of the Ann Ar- 
bor Art Association. Mr. De VoU's 
paintings were of scenes in the east- 
em states, while the work of Mr. 
Barnes, who is an Ann Arbor man, 
consisted chiefly of Huron River 
views. 

A petition asking for the establish- 
ment of military training and service 
in the University was presented to the 
Regents at their meeting on November 
24. Although the petition was only 
circulated for two or three days, about 
fifty names were signed, including 
those of Dean Bates, of the Law De- 
partment, Dean Cooley, of the Engi- 
neering Department, Dean Vaughan, 
of the Medical Department, Professor 
Evans Holbrook, of the Law Depart- 
ment, Coaches Fielding H. Yost,

Under the auspices of the Architec- 
tural Society, an exhibition of forty- 
two pictures in water color, mainly of 
scenes in Italy and France, by Profes- 
sor Edmund S. Campbell, of the Art 
Institute, Chicago, was shown in 
Alumni Memorial Hall in November. 

Professor Edward D. Jones, of the 
Economics Department, delivered a 
lecture on November 6 before the Ad- 
craft Club, of Detroit, a society which 
is affiliated with the Detroit Board of 
Commerce. Professor Jones took as 
his subject "The American Distribu- 
tive System: A Review and Criti- 
cism." His address was the first in a 
series of twenty lectures dealing with 
political economy, sociology, aesthet- 
ics, psychology arid rhetoric. 

More than two-thirds of the one 
hundred and sixty foreign students 
enrolled in the University hold mem- 
bership in at least one of the half doz-

126 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

THIRD MEETING OF ASSOCIATION OF ALUMNI SECRETARIES 

Columbia and Yale Universities furnished a most hospitable and inspir- 
ing setting for the third annual meeting of the Association of Alumni Secre- 
taries, held in New York on November 19 and 20, and in New Haven on 
the following day. The business sessions of the Association, five in num- 
ber, were held in the new building of the School of Journalism at Columbia, 
while the most important session of the third day, at New Haven, was held 
at the Yale Bowl, where the members of the Association formed a small 
part of the seventy thousand who witnessed Harvard^s spectacular victory. 

The register of the meeting showed sixty-seven delegates present, repre- 
senting sixty-two different institutions, a significant increase over the attend- 
ance of the two previous meetings at Columbus and Chicago. There were 
executive alumni officers present from as far west as Stanford University. 
The South was represented by men from Texas, Louisiana and Virginia; 
North Dakota and Minnesota in the Northwest sent delegates; while most 
of the mid-western and eastern states were represented, giving an impres- 
sive national aspect to the meeting. 

Both Columbia and Yale proved cordial hosts. A large proportion 
of the members of the Associaton were housed in the Columbia dormi- 
tories as guests of the University during the period of the sessions, and the 
members of the Association were given privileges of the Faculty Club for 
breakfast and luncheon on the days when the Association was not formally 
entertained. On the opening day of the session a luncheon was given the 
Association by Columbia University at Claremont on the Hudson, at w*hich 
Dean Keppel, of Columbia College, presided. On the evening of the fol- 
lowing day a dinner was also tendered the Association by the Columbia Uni- 
versity Club in the clubhouse in Gramercy Square, at which Dean Van Am- 
ringe, Columbia, '60, President of the Columbia Federated Clubs, presided. 
Dean "Van Am*' is as loved and venerated by Columbia alumni as our own 
President Emeritus is by Michigan alumni. 

But small opportunity was given on the following day to see Yale Uni- 
versity, though an instructive few minutes were spent by the Association in 
walking about the Campus and in the offices where the Yale alumni records 
are preserved. At a luncheon given by the University in Memorial Hall, the 
Association was addressed by the Secretary of Yale University, Rev. Anson 
Phelps Stokes, who emphasized the opportunity for service to the university 
which alumni organization brings. Particularly helpful, he thought, might 
be the interchange of ideas among the different universities. He cited the 
remarkable growth of the Yale Alumni Fund, which now amounts to $1,300,- 
000, as an example of most useful work for their Alma Mater on the 
part of the alumni. But more than this, he stated as an example of the 
inspiration of concerted alumni eflFort that since the idea had been developed 
a few years ago, at Yale, it had spread to many other American universities, 
which were now developing alumni funds along the lines first hit upon by a 
small band of Yale alumni. 

"What Alumni Associations Are Doing, and Might be Doing" formed 
the general topic for the opening sessions of the Conference. Following an 
introductory speech by the President of the Association, Mr. E. B. Johnson,

128 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

of Minnesota, and a discussion of "The Ideal Association" by the Secretary, 
the representative of the University of Michigan, Dean C. Mathews, of 
Western Reserve University, took up the question of developing and voic- 
ing alumni sentiment so that it shall really represent the highest ideals of 
the alumni for the institution. Aspects of th^ question were discussed by 
the representatives of Northwestern, the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology and Wisconsin. At the afternoon session the problem of the class 
secretary was opened by Edwin Rogers Embree, Alumni Registrar of Yale 
University, who outlined at some length the plan which has been followed 
at Yale for the past hundred years with remarkable and inspiring results. 
Warren F. Sheldon, of Wesleyan, also discussed the possibilities of the 
system, and how to finance the work. Mr. Win-field Willard Rowlee, of 
Cornell, in discussing local alumni associations, outlined an interesting 
scheme of organization followed by the Cornell Association of Chicago. 
Lewis D. Crenshaw, of Virginia, also told of a most successful and compre- 
hensive campaign to bring about class reunions at a university where, before 
he took the matter up, organization by classes was unknown.. 

The evening sessions of the first day were divided among the state uni- 
versities, the larger endowed institutions, and the smaller endowed institu- 
tions, under the chairmanship of representatives from Louisiana, Pennsyl- 
vania and Worcester Pol3rtechnic Institute. 

The following day the subjects of "the alumni secretary" and "the 
alumni publication" formed the principal topics under discussion. Particu- 
larly interesting was a symposium, by John A. Lomax, of Texas, on "The 
Relation of the Alumni to the Secretary and to the Institution," founded 
upon a series of letters written to representative institutions all over the 
United States. Edwin Oviatt, Editor of The Yale Alumni Weekly, dis- 
cussed the ideals that should govern the editor, a question of absorbing in- 
terest to many of those present. The question of interesting the alumni, 
older and younger, was presented by Joseph S. Myers, of Ohio State Uni- 
versity. 

The afternoon of the second day was devoted to the election of officers 
for the coming year, and a general discussion of questions raised by various 
members of the Association. The following officers were elected: Presi- 
dent, Edwin R. Embree, Alumni R^strar of Yale University; First Vice- 
President, Dean C. Mathews, of Western Reserve University ; Second Vice- 
President, John A. Lomax, of Texas ; Secretary, Wilfred B. Shaw, Univer- 
sity of Michigan; Treasurer, A. T. Prescott, University of Louisiana; Mem- 
bers of the Executive Committee: J. E. McDowell, Stanford University; 
Karl Leebrick, University of California; Charles Cason, Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity. The Association also established a Bureau of Information for 
Alumni Officers. The chairman of this bureau, Levering Tyson, Columbia, 
will make it a part of his duties to collect detailed information from all the 
universities which are members of the Association in triplicate for the use 
of anyone who desires to find what other universities are doing in certain 
fields of alumni activity. A preparation of exhibits will also be undertaken, 
to be shown at the next meeting of the Association, which is to be held next 
November at Stanford University.

1914] ASSOCIATION OF CLASS SECRETARIES 129 

AN ASSOCIATION OF CLASS SECRETARIES ORGANIZED 

At a meeting of about twenty-five class secretaries, held at the Michigan 
Union, immediately following the Pennsylvania game, November 7, 1914, 
a constitution and definite plan of organization of an Association of Class 
Secretaries was adopted. The General Secretary of the Alimini Association, 
to whom had been delegated the duty of calling the meeting together, acted 
as chairnmn, with Professor Gordon Stoner, '04, '06/, as secretary. 

Following a short statement of the purpose of the meeting, in which 
the action of the previous session, held last Commencement, was reviewed 
by the chairman, the constitution drawn up by the committee on constitution 
previously authorized, composed of Professor Gordon Stoner, '04, *o6l. Dr. 
Charles W. Hitchcock, '80, of Detroit, Dr. G. Carl Huber, '87W, Thurlow 
E Coon, '03, '06^, of Detroit, and James H. Westcott, '94/, of New York, 
was presented. A copy of this constitution had been previously sent 
to all the class secretaries, and many letters had been received r^^arding 
it. Following the suggestion in tiie letter of Mr. Louis H. Jennings, '72, of 
Chicago, it was moved by Dr. Huber that the words, "the General Secretary 
of the Alimini Association shall act as chairman of this committee," be 
stricken from Article IV of the proposed constitution. This was carried, 
and the constitution was then adopted as amended. 

Meanwhile, the chairman of the meeting had appointed Miss Annie W. 
Langley, '01, Dr. Hitchcock and Professor J. H. Drake, '85, '02I, as a nom- 
inating committee. 

A certain amount of discussion of the proposed constitution followed, 
and it was finally moved and adopted that the adoption of the constitution 
be reconsidered. The section in the original draft of the constitution, pro- 
viding that the annual dues of the members of the Association should be 
two dollars, roused a considerable discussion. It was felt by some of the 
secretaries that this might not only prove something of a burden for class 
secretaries whose classes are at present very loosely organized, but, until 
the aim and scope of the organization were better defined, might impair, 
rather than increase, the general eflFectiveness of the proposed association. 
It was finally decided upon motion that the adoption of the constitution be 
reconsidered, which resulted in the final adoption of the constitution, with 
Article VII, providing for dues, stricken out. The constitution as finally 
amended is as follows: 

Article I. — Name. 

The name of this organization shall be "The Association of Class Secretaries, of 
the University of Michigan." 

Article II.— Object. 

The object of this Association shall be to further the interests of the University; 
to encourage and aid the collection and compilation of complete and uniform statistics 
for each class and the publication of the same in a uniform manner ; to enliven interest 
in and increase the attendance at the regular class reunions; and by proper organiza- 
tion and co-operation to stimulate and standardize the work of the class secretaries and 
to develop greater unity of action and feeling in the various classes, Alumni Associa- 
tion and alumni body as a whole.

H. Jennings, '72, Chicago. 

Upon motion of Professor Ralph W. Aigler, '07/, the report of the 
nominating committee was adopted, and the above officers were duly elected. 

The question of immediate general interest was that of uniform blanks 
for class statistics, and the publication of a handbook for class secretaries, 
similar to those already published by Yale and Cornell Universities. It was 
felt that some uniformity in the matter of keeping records was very desirable, 
as was also some central office where these might be filed. It was finally 
moved by Professor Bradshaw that this matter of uniform statistical blanks, 
as well as the publicaton of a handbook, be referred to the executive com- 
mittee, with power. This was duly carried. The meeting thereupon ad- 
journed, to meet again next Commencement.

I9I4] YALE'S ALUMNI RECORDS 131 

YALE'S SYSTEM OF ALUMNI RECORDS 

For a period of one hundred and twenty-three years, from 1792 to 
191 5, practically every class at Yale University has been organized with a 
secretary as executive officer and editor of not one, but a series of class 
records. The loyalty of Yale alumni to their Alma Mater has been proverb- 
ial, and with such a record of organized effort it is not difficult to see the 
reason for it. There has been a certain amount of organization by classes 
in most American universities; records have been kept by divers enthu- 
siastic class secretaries, but never has the system been carried out so sys- 
tematically and so enthusiastically as at Yale, and nowhere have results been 
so remarkable. 

At Yale the class secretary is elected during his senior year, and is 
re-elected or succeeded in election from time to time during the life of the 
members of the class. He is the only general officer, and to him are dele- 
gated the duties of keeping annotated address lists, occupation lists and mar- 
riage and family lists of the members of his class. In the younger years of the 
class he also acts as a bureau of occupation and recommendation for class- 
mates desiring new positions. To him also are referred questions involving 
special class activities or affecting class policy. These powers have grown 
up with the office, especially as no class or general alumni association has 
specifically delegated these powers to the secretary. 

According to Mr. E. R. Embree, Yale's Alumni Registrar, who des- 
cribed the system at the meeting of Alumni Secretaries at Columbia, it is an 
evolution, a survival of the fittest, in class organization. The other officers of 
the class, sometimes appointed by the secretary, sometimes elected by the 
class, arrange for specific reunions, collect money for current expenses and 
for the University Alumni Fund, manage the annual dinners and devise and 
present memorials to the University. The secretary's specific and individual 
duty concerns the personal life of the member and the published records of 
his life. It is in the matter of class records that the Yale system is unique. 
A senior book is published at Yale, as at many other American universities, 
but this is only the beginning of a series of records. 

According to the present system most classes at Yale now issue more 
or less extensive biographical records of their members at five year intervals 
after graduation so long as the last survivor lives, forming a complete 
library of five to a dozen volumes. In general, these publications follow 
the reunions. Many of them are comparatively short, consisting merely of 
an account of the last reunion and brief sketches of recent events in the 
members' careers. But at the ten year, the twenty-five year and the fifty 
year period the records are more extensive. The twenty-five year and fifty 
year books are often distinct contributions to American biography, giving a 
complete sketch of each member, with often some genealogical background, 
a full account of his college life and two to five hundred words concerning 
his career, illustrated with photographs of the man as he appeared in col- 
lege and as he appeared twenty-five years after graduation. 

Yale now has a library of five hundred and forty volumes of class 
records, not including smaller pamphlets and address lists. The value of

132 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

this material to American biography and history is very great, and must 
become more valuable as the years pass. But even greater is its value to 
Yale University and to the members of the classes in keeping alive their 
interest and furthering a spirit of solidarity with one another and with the 
University. While it may be long before we can realize the completeness 
of the system at Yale University, some such organized method of keeping 
alumni records should be the ideal of the new Association of Class Secre- 
taries. 



THE BOSTON AND DETROIT SMOKERS 

BOSTON, OCTOBER 30, I914. 

The smoker given by the New England Association to the Michigan 
alumni on the night before the Harvard game in the large ball room of the 
Copley-Plaza Hotel, proved a great success. The program was opened with 
a short concert by the Varsity Band, which occupied a platform at one end 
of the hall. When the meeting was called to order there were about six 
hundred men on the floor, with the balcony crowded with two to three 
hundred of Michigan's alumnae. Dr. C. W. Staples, 8gd, the president of the 
New England organization, opened the program with a few words of wel- 
come, and introduced James M. Swift, '95, ex-Attorney General of Mass- 
achusetts, as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. He in turn called 
on Dean Cooley, Judge W. L. Day, '00/, of Cleveland, and Judge J. O. Mur- 
fi^> '95> '96/^ of Detroit, and all of these gave characteristic Michigan talks. 
Following this, impromptu speeches were made by Dean C. Worcester, '89, 
Coach Yost and H. J. Killilea, '85/, president of the "M" Club. The coach 
came in late, and stood back in a comer, but somebody noticed him, and 
immediately cries went up for "Yost." The Band struck up "The Victors," 
and the cheers that went up as he was taken to the platform were deafen- 
in. It was just a start towards showing that Michigan's alumni were with 
the team to the end. 

Between the various talks were cheers, led by "Hap" Haff, and the 
alunmi showed that even though they have been away a good many years, 
they still know how to yell. "Varsity" and "Win for Michigan" were sung 
during the evening. The program ended with moving pictures of Ann 
Arbor, more cheers, and the singing of "The Yellow and the Blue." 

Following the smoker, the crowd accepted the kind invitation of the 
Harvard Club, and headed by the Band marched to the Harvard Club, where 
they were entertained until well after midnight. 

DETROIT, NOVEMBER 21, I914. 

Michigan spirit, in all its enthusiasm and collegiate optimism, was well 
shown when the Varsity team was the guest of the Detroit Alumni Associa- 
tion in the annual football smoker the Saturday night following the close 
of the season. The casual observer would never have known that the 
Detroit alumni were feasting a team which had lost three of its big games 
in one of the most disastrous seasons since Fielding Yost came to Michi-

134 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

gan, so bona fide and whole-hearted was the enthusiasm of the 600 students 
and graduates who were gathered in the auditorium of the new Board of 
, Commerce building in Detroit. 

Captain James W. Raynsford, Captain-elect William D. Cochran, with 
Trainer Steve Farrell, Graduate Director Phillip G. Bartelme and the mem- 
bers of the 1914 Varsity squad, were seated in the place of honor at the front 
of the big hall, while the other guests and their hosts were grouped around 
tables which completely filled the floor space. The yellow-caped bandmen 
were also present and were by no means the least popular part of the 
gathering. 

Not one of the speakers was allowed to touch on the fact of defeat, 
and all were optimistic as a result. The two captains, and Splawn and 
Maulbetsch were the team men called on, and each received an ovation on 
his appearance. The stocky little half back who had played in every game 
of the season, came in for a huge share of the attention, and it was only 
after the crowd had insisted that he talk, that he mounted the platform for 
his share of the speech-making. 

Charles Cross, a Cornell athlete of four year's competition, scored the 
biggest hit of the evening when he got up to say that "he was glad that 
Cornell had beaten Michigan because he would rather that Cornell beat 
Michigan than any other team in the country." He paid a glowing tribute 
to Michigan's spirit; a tribute which was echoed by Jay McLauchlan, a 
Yale man, who also was called on. 

President Walter E. Oxtoby, 98/, of the Detroit Association, introduced 
James Strassburg, '02, as toastmaster to start the festivities. Strassburg 
was Varsity baseball manager in 1901, and he proved equal to the task of 
keeping the enthusiastic crowd in leash long enough to listen to the speakers. 
Judge James O. Murfin, '95, '96/, of Detroit, one of the alumni members of 
the Athletic Board in Control, was a speaker, telling of the board's plans for 
the future and complimenting the 1914 Varsity on its season's play. E. A. 
Batchelor, a sports writer of Detroit, Attorney Francis D. Eaman, '00, and 
several others, were also on the list of speakers. 

THE Y.M.C.A."MOBIUZATION WEEK** 

With the purpose of interesting as many students in the University as 
possible in religious and social service, the Students* Christian Association 
conducted a five days series of meetings, beginning Wednesday, November 
18, under the name "Mobilization Week." In the five days a total of two 
hundred and eighty-four meetings were held, which were addressed by 
some thirty out-of-town speakers, men and women prominent in the religious 
and social work of the day. In addition to the general meetings held each 
night in Hill Auditorium, meetings were held at noon and evening at the 
various fraternity and sorority houses, by the different classes and depart- 
ments, by the women, by the men interested in athletics and journalism, 
and by the foreign students of the University. An elaborate plan of organi- 
zation, involving the appointment of over three hundred student committee- 
men, was carried out, under the general direction of an executive staflf

While in Ann Arbor, a social service committee composed of six men 
who are specializing in social work, made a survey of the city, finding many 
opportunities for social service in the factories, hospitals and city play- 
grounds, and in teaching first aid to the injured, hygiene and English to 
foreigners. As a result of their investigations, one hundred and seventy-five 
students in the University have offered their services to help better these 
conditions. 

The following week, November 27-29, over two thousand representa- 
tives from the various Michigan high schools met at Ann Arbor for the 
annual Y. M. C. A. State Boys' Conference. A series of meetings were 
held in Hill Auditorium, under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., which were 
addressed by President Hutchins, Governor Woodbridge N. Ferris, Senator 
Charles E. Townsend, Mr. Fred B. Smith, of New York City, and Secre- 
tary of State William Jennings Bryan. 



A REVIEW OF THE 1914 FOOTBALL 

SEASON 

The 1914 season was decidedly an off one for Michigan. A new 
team had practically to be created, and the most difficult schedule of years 
had to be faced. Yet these odds were partially at least discounted by the 
team. That in the Harvard and Pennsylvania games, Michigan showed 
an improvement and sportsmanship of which everyone had reason to be 
proud must not be forgotten when the books for 1914 are balanced. 

Nevertheless, the season as a whole turned out much as was feared by 
those with experience in athletics, even though there were some decidedly 
bright spots in the season's record. Nine members of the team ended their 
football careers with the close of the season of 1913, so it was well known 
that the 1914 team would be an untried and inexperienced crew. It was

the opinion of most good judges that the 1914 schedule was too hard for the 
green team which must play it, and that it would result in disaster. And 
in spite of the added length of the summer practice, the extra mid-week 
games, and the changing of the rules as to scholarship eligibility, these 
expectations were realized, and the season ended with three defeats for 
Michigan — a record not equalled in the past twenty years. 

To take up the season in detail, it shows a typical performance by a 
green team made up of very promising but undeveloped and inexperienced 
men. Against the early-season teams, Michigan showed an effective offense 
and though a ragged yet nevertheless an adequate, defense. As soon as op- 
ponents of strength were met, however, the weaknesses in the team ap- 
peared. Even Vanderbilt, though much weaker than usual (the Commo- 
dores had almost a straight record of defeats this season), was able to score, 
though Michigan rallied later in the game and clearly outclassed the south- 
em team. In the game against M. A. C. at Lansing, Michigan met a worthy 
foe, and was very glad to come home with a victory. The Aggies, it must 
be confessed, outplayed Michigan, and probably nothing but the call of time 
kept them from scoring a touchdown at the end of the first half. Michi- 
gan's only effective march toward the M. A. C. goal was checked by a fierce 
defense, and it was only by taking advantage of her superiority in for- 
ward passing that Michigan was able again to get the ball to a place 
where Splawn could kick a goal and roister the three points which gave

Michigan the victory. The victory was a costly one, for injuries were suf- 
fered by Hughitt and Splawn which kept the former out of the Syracuse 
game and reduced the latter*s effectiveness considerably. Even with the 
full strength of the team, however, Michigan would have had difficulties 
with the strong Syracuse team on October 24th. Syracuse, taking advan- 
tage of every weak point in Michigan's defense and nullifying every effort 
of her offense, won by the decisive score of 20 to 6. It was simply a case 
of a green team against a seasoned team. 

The Harvard game was naturally a manifestation of the same superior- 
ity of experience over inexperience. Harvard, even without the services of 
Brickley, Mahan, Pennock, Soucy and (for the greater part of the game) 
Wallace, was much more experienced than Michigan. In the long run, 
any eastern team is, probably, more experienced than any western team, be- 
cause of the better training received in the eastern preparatory schools ; but 
in the Harvard game the eastern team had a great advantage in collegiate 
experience as well. And the advantage showed even though Michigan put 
up an unexpectedly brave resistance. After the Michigan men had worn 
themselves out in rushing the ball almost the length of the field in the lir^t 
quarter, while Harvard was pursuing the traditional eastern tactics of hold, 
punt, hold, punt. Harvard's superiority in punting gave her the ball at the 
center of the field early in the second quarter, and she took it down the 
field for a touchdown in eleven plays. Again in the second half Michigan 
rushed the ball down toward Harvard's goal time after time, only to be held 
each time and to see Harvard — not attempting to run, but punting on first 
or second down — send the ball up the field again, where Michigan would 
again begin its splendid, but wearying and fruitless, pounding toward the 
unreachable Crimson goal. Michigan's attack, brilliant and forceful though 
it was, had been solved by the trained veterans of Harvard, and could not 
carry over the last line. The result was inevitable — no team could stand 
the overstrain — ^and at the end of the game Harvard was apparently about 
to score again when time was called. 

One notable result of the game was the mutual expression of good will 
between the supporters of the two universities. The Eastern papers were 
practically imanimous in the credit given to the sportsmanlike qualities of 
the team and the loyalty of the Michgan contingent at the game. 

Mack Whelan in the Boston Globe, says : 

An important part of the game was that both elevens played hard, clean football. 
Another feature was that Michigan, hundreds of miles from its own campus, gave a 
demonstration of graduate loyalty to the university which impressed vividly upon 
some thirty thousand of first hand observers that Ann Arbor is the home of a great, 
broad, national institution, the limits of the influence of whidi is not bound^ed by states 
or sections. Every one knew it before the game, of course, but every one who was 
among those present in the Stadium «had a much more personal realization of it after 
the game, Michigan made many thousands of friends in the east as the result of her 
long trip. Not only in point of numbers, but in the character of her ^lendid repre- 
sentation was the Michigan side of the Stadium impressive. 

The New York Herald says : 

The showing of the Michigan rooters was a big surprise. Not many expected to 
»ce such an outpouring as there was of those who wore the Maize and Blue. In the

east stand there were fully two thousand who had come to cheer the Ann Arbor 
juggernaut, and there was not one in this collection who dad not carry a yellow 
chrysanthemum. Banked against the gray background of the stadium the yellow 
flowers made a picturesque splurge of color. 

Another hit to the present generations of Bostonians, who had never before seen 
the Western team and their supporters, was the band of forty pieces, which came 
all the -way from Ann Arbor. These young musicians were decked out in blue and 
gold uniforms, and when tbey marched on the field and worked themselves into the 
form of a huge M, the Harvard side of the field gave them a big send-off. The band 
was a big feature of the occasion. 

One of the striking things about the match was the glee with which the Harvard 
supporters greeted the victory. It is not very often, except in a contest with Yale or 
Princeton, that the Crimson undergraduates give themselves up to the joyous intricacies 
of the snake dance, but when the final whistle blew the whole Harvard stand stormed 
down on the field and, led by their band, they paraded around the turf arni -went 
through the time honored custom of tossing hats over the cross bars of the goal posts. 

Grantland Rice, in the Evening Mail, said : 

The fine, clean spirit of sportsmanship displayed by both factions on and off the 
field Saturday should make the Harvard-Michigan battle a yearly affair. Yost and 
his men were overwhelmed with every attention possible. .Harvard went to the limit 
in hospitality. And the spirit all around shown through the battle was of such a ihigh 
order that it would be a pity for such a contest to be dropped. A meeting of this sort 
is too big a boon to sportsmanship to be laid aside. 

Sportsmanship is the worth while element in every game. College sportsmanship 
is training for the Greater Sportsmanship. For life, after all, is only a game. 

After the Harvard game there was a tremendous feeling of confidence 
among the supporters of the Michigan team. Nearly everybody had ex- 
pected a worse defeat, and the margin of a single touchdown seemed nar-

row indeed between Michigan and the strongest team in the east. This con- 
fidence was heightened by the fact that Michigan had twice come so near 
to scoring, and by the current reports that Michigan had "gained more 
groimd" than Harvard. It is true that Michigan ran the ball from scrim- 
mage for a greater distance than Harvard did ; to be exact, Mr. Parke H. 
Davis' table in the Detroit Tribune shows that Michigan rushed the ball 55 
times for a total gain of 191 yards (an average of 3.47 yards) against Har- 
vard's 33 rushes for a total of 127 yards (an average of 3.85 yards). But 
rushing the ball — even with a back like Maulbetsch — is not all of football, 
as is shown by Michigan's victory over M. A. C. and her touchdowns against 
Cornell, all gained by forward passes. And in passing, kicking, and running 
back punts, Harvard's superiority was marked. The total amount of groimd 
gained by Harvard was nearly 100 yards more than that gained by Michi- 
gan. And it was this superiority together with Harvard's solving of Mich- 
igan's offense, that won the game. "Right Wing," a well-known eastern 
critic, seems to think that the victory was a triumph of eastern tactics over 
western; perhaps it may be as fairly said that Harvard won because her 
experienced line-men were able to solve the Michigan offense in time to 
prevent a score, and were wise enough to choose just the right moment for 
their attack on Michigan; perhaps these are merely two different ways of 
expressing the same thing. At all events, both sides seemed pleased with 
the result; Harvard because she won, Michigan because she made a better 
showing than she had expected. 

The confidence which resulted from the Harvard game was doubled 
and trebled by the easy victory over Pennsylvania on the following Satur- 
day. True, the Penn team had not shown great form (having been tied by 
Lafayette and beaten by Franklin & Marshall, and eventually winning less 
than half its games) but nobody expected the tremendous drubbing which 
was administered by Michigan, whose score of 34 to 3 was more of a sur- 
prise to the football world than was Dartmouth's victory over Penn by a 
score of 41 to o a week later. Michigan was irresistible; Pennsylvania, 
hopelessly outclassed, could do nothing; it seemed as if Mr. Yost had ac- 
complished the impossible and made a crew of youngsters into a world-beat- 
ing team, as if the Harvard game had been a mistake, and the Syracuse 
game a bad dream. 

Indeed, this belief in Mr. Yost's wizardry lasted into the second half 
of the Cornell game. Two beautiful forward passes resulted in two touch- 
downs for Michigan in the first half, while Cornell was able to score but 
once. But Cornell, while scoring but once in the first half, was learning a 
lot about Michigan's style of play, and in the second half proceeded to put 
into execution what she had learned. Michigan's attempts to gain were 
frustrated by the Cornell defense, while Cornell trotted out a variation of 
the old Yale massed interference which soon was going through Michigan 
about 7 yards to a play. Michigan seemed unable to solve this play, and 
soon crumbled under the fierce attack. The result was a score of 28 to 12 
in favor of Cornell — the worst defeat suffered by Michigan since 1908, 
when Penn won 29 to o and Syracuse won 28 to 4. 

Though the season itself was disastrous enough — due mostly to the im-

position of such a difficult schedule on a green team — the members of the 
team have learned a lot of football, and will be sure to give -a good account 
of themselves next year. Only Raynsford, Hughitt and McHale are to be 
lost to the team (unless difficulties in scholarship arise, which seems un- 
likely) ; the 1915 team will therefore be able to begin the season with a 
considerable list of fairly experienced men, and may reasonably hope to 
turn the tables on some of their 1914 opponents. 



THE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF 
EDUCATION 

THE SECOND ANNUAL C0NVCX:ATI0N ADDRESS BY 
DR. VICTOR C. VAUGHAN 

The second annual Convocation address was delivered October 16, 
1914, by Dr. Victor C. Vaughan, Dean of the Department of Medicine and 
Surgery. 

Dr. Vaughan discussed "The nature and purpose of Education" and, 
in his opening paragraphs asked his audience, "Why are you here?" The 
purpose of the University, he said, is to better fit for citizenship. In his 
first words, therefore, he emphasized the responsibility of the student to the 
University, insisting that intelligence, industry and integrity are the first 
essentials for every student. Dr. Vaughan then traced the development of 
education of the individual through the modification and development of 
behavior through experience. He showed how behavior is determined 
through the mechanism of the nervous system, emphasizing the concern of 
education especially with the function of the nerves, and continued as fol- 
lows: 

Man comes into the world the most helpless of all animals. At birth 
the child is incapable of locomotion and of finding unaided its food 
supply. For months, and indeed for years, the child remains in this helpless 
state. The dog in the first six months of its life learns more than the child 
does in years. It is the superiority of his nervous mechanism that has given 
man dominion over the earth and all that is therein. We need sound bones, 
strong muscles and healthy organs, because these render the development of 
the nervous system possible, and the health of the body, as a whole, is es- 
sential to the well-developed man. We can have no correct conception of 
education vsrithout some knowledge of the mechanism employed in its acqui- 
sition. Briefly considered, the nervous system consists of receptors or spe- 
cial senses, which are stimulated by the environment, of conductors which 
transmit the stimulation to the central organs and of effectors which control 
and direct the responses to the stimuli. The primary function of the nervous 
mechanism is to provide paths of conduction between the receptors and 
effectors. The first breath of air at birth starts the machinery of respira- 
tion. Irritability and automatism are properties of all living things. Even 
unicellular organisms, amebae, for instance, in which there is no nervous

tissue, automatically respond to external stimuli, such as food, and changes 
in behavior or rudimentary and limited education can be developed in them. 
As cell differentiation is evolved the structure of the nervous system be- 
comes more complicated and its functions are more diversified and effective. 

A sense receptor, such as the eye or ear^ the sensory nerve, such as the 
optic or the auditory, the nervous center to which the impression is con- 
veyed and the motor nerve, through which the response is transmlttea, con- 
stitute the "reflex arc." Reflex action is the simplest function of the nervous 
system. Strong light induces contraction of the pupil, the sight or odor of 
food causes the saliva to flow, pinching the flesh is followed by muscular 
movement. These are examples of innate reflexes. The normal child comes 
into the world possessed of these reflexes. A large part of education con- 
sists in the co-ordination and development of these innate reflexes. Walking, 
talking, reading, writing, are examples of co-ordinated, trained reflexes. 

The first lesson we learn in investigating the mechanism of education 
is that the sense receptors must be in good condition to start with and must 
be kept in the highest state of efficiency as we proceed. The receptors 
through which our behavior is modified and developed by environment are 
the five senses, seeing, hearing, touch, smell and taste, each of which on 
close analysis, is found to be complex. All primary knowledge reaches the 
brain through these sources. In no other way can environment modify our 
behavior or can we be educated. The dictum of Locke "Nihil in intellectu 
est quod non prius in sensu" is not refuted by the addendum of Leibnitz 
"Nisi intellectus ipse." When the senses are defective in function, illusions, 
hallucinations and delusions control us and dominate our conduct. The 
senses may be primarily defective and to some extent these defects may be 
removed by medical skill. When normal in mechanism these functions may 
be impaired by poisons introduced from without the body, such as alcohol, 
or by those generated within the body, such as those due to fatigue or to 
disease. Although the truth expressed in the Latin proverb, "Mens sana in 
sano corpore" has come down to us from classical times, educators have 
been slow to realize its force. Indeed, when mystical scholasticism formu- 
lated educational ideals, affliction of the body was believed to be essential to 
the highest development of the mind. Fortunately, even educators, one by 
one, with some reluctance, are awakening from their dreams and becoming 
interested in scientific investigation. Greater benefits in educational methods 
have been obtained by observation of the effects of altered environment on 
the behavior of animals than have been evolved from the inner consciousness 
of the greatest genius. Appreciating the fundamental importance of nor- 
mality in securing an education, this university is developing a splendid sys- 
tem for the supervision of the health of its students. However, the health 
of each individual is largely in his own keeping and I wish to say that idle- 
ness, alcoholism and sexual vice remain the most potent factors in student 
wreckage. With senses untrained from idleness and benumbed by dissipa- 
tion the individual is a failure in college and in the greater school of the 
world. 

Certain complex reflexes are known as instincts. These play an im- 
portant part in education. All instincts are not manifest at the time of

birth, but develop with age and are influenced by the evolution of the indi- 
vidual, as a whole. The instinct of play manifests itself in every normal 
child and the same is true of the instincts of acquisitiveness, construction, 
possession, self-assertion, anger, self-abasement, rivalry, pugnacity, etc. 
These need to be controlled and directed, and this constitutes an important 
part of education. They are inherited, but are subject to marked modifica- 
tion by environment. For instance, the instinct of imitation is one of great 
potency in shaping our conduct and in determining not only our own lives, 
but of those about us. In this lies sufficient justification of state education. 
One scientific farmer in a commimity enhances the value of all the farming 
land about him, because he demonstrates the productivity of the soil. One 
honest, learned lawyer reduces litigation and a skillful physician not only 
alleviates the suffering of the sick, but prevents the spread of the disease. 
The highest purpose of this University is to train leaders of men, those 
whose influence among their fellows may always be in the right direction. 

Success will depend largely upon the environment under which you live 
while here. This can not be wholly determined by the university authorities. 
To a large extent you will educate one another. 

A part of education consists in inhibiting reflexes and suppressing mis- 
directed instincts. The only way in which this can be done is by the cultiva- 
tion and exercise of certain other reflexes. As we shall see later, nervous 
impulses travel most easily over well worn pathways. A function frequently 
performed proceeds automatically and to the exclusion of antagonistic ten- 
dencies. One of the most difficult things the untrained student has to con- 
tend with is diffuse activity. He tries to study, but outside stimuli of vision, 
hearing, etc. bombard his sensorium and demand his attention. Training is 
essential before calls to purposeless activity can be ignored. 

The first impression which one receives in studying the structure and 
function of the nervous system is that it is a grossly defective mechanism. 
The elements of which it is composed consist of nerve cells with axons and 
dendrites. The dendrites are supposed to receive the stimuli and the axons 
to conduct them to the next unit. Between these units, called neurones, 
there is no direct structural connection. The axons of one imit come in 
more or less direct contact with the dendrites of the next, but each neuron is 
organically quite distinct from all others. The apparent imperfection lies in 
this absence of direct connection. The point of contact between two neurons 
is known as a synapse and at this point there is more or less resistance to 
the transmission of the stimulus. This apparent imperfection is, however, 
in some respects at least, a benefit. Were it not for this delay the brain 
would be stormed continuously by stimuli from the outer world and orderly 
thought would be quite impossible. Without these apparent imperfections, 
sleep would be less restful and anesthetics would not be able to relieve us 
of pain. Education consists partly in improving these connections. A path- 
way through the nervous tissue having been once opened is more easily 
followed by subsequent similar stimuli. This renders possible the formation 
of habits. The more frequently a given pathway is traversed, the more 
easily stimuli pass until finally transmission occurs without conscious effort. 
The first attempt to learn is more or less laborious, but with each repetition

I9I41 THE CONVOCATION ADDRESS 143 

the resistance becomes less and finally the thing is done automatically. 
Effectiveness is largely the result of the formation of good habits. In this 
way the expert is developed. The best preparation for doing anything is the 
fact that you have once or oftener done it and the more frequently it has 
been done, the more certainty is there in repeating it. The beginner in teleg- 
raphy must give attention to each letter, then he thinks only of words, and 
later he advances to phrases and even to sentences. 

In learning of this kind, progress is not always uniform. After reach- 
ing a certain degree of proficiency there is a period in which there is no ap- 
parent progress. These periods are known as plateaus. All students arc 
familiar with these depressing states in which effort seems without avail, 
but with persistence the curve of learning suddenly begins to rise and the 
elation of success is the reward. 

The question of the transference of skill acquired in one branch of 
learning to another has been debated among psychologists, but the weight of 
evidence is that it is not possible. Being an expert mathematician does not 
make one an authority in law or medicine. The neural pathways opened up 
in the pursuit of different branches of learning are not the same. They 
may lie quite far apart and expertness in one line does not imply even 
soundness of judgment in another. This is an important matter in educa- 
tion and will receive further attention later. 

The formation of habit is common to all animals and habits have a 
marked influence on behavior. We do things so often that it becomes diffi- 
cult to refrain from doing them when the conditions under which they have 
been done recur. The most forceful teacher of my college days was wont 
to say : "Man is but a bundle of habits and happy is the man whose habits 
are his friends." At twenty, it seemed to me that the force of this saying 
lay in its sonorous quality. At sixty I realize that its strength lies in its 
truth. The young scout the idea that they can not indulge in a vice occasion- 
ally without becoming a victim. The chains forged in the smithy of habit 
are strong in every link. They may safely hold us in the heaviest storm or 
they may drag us to the bottom of smooth seas. Another mistake often 
made by youth is the belief that every experience is helpful. There is no 
other commodity for which we pay so dearly and the price often is health, 
happiness and even Uf e. 

Some stimuli make such deep and lasting impressions on the central- 
nervous system that the picture may be recalled without the recurrence of the 
original stimulus. This is memory. Jennings has shown that there is some 
evidence of memory even in unicellular organisms. This becomes more 
marked as the animal structures, especially the nervous system, develop. 
Even a spider learns by experience and alters its behavior to its own benefit, 
when repeatedly subjected to like conditions. 

Colvin says: "Memory is a fundamental phenomenon of organic life. 
In its widest sense it signifies the fact that impressions once received by an 
organism are retained for a greater or less period and that this retention 
is indicated in the modified behavior of the organism. The evidence of mem- 
ory in animals is their ability to profit by experience. A white rat is placed 
at the entrance of a maze at the center of which is food. The animal moves

144 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

about in an aimless manner until at length it reaches the center. If on suc- 
ceeding trials the rat shows an improvement in the accuracy and rapidity 
with which it moves about the maze, this means that its earlier attempts 
have in some sense left their effects ; they have modified subsequent conduct. 
Memory when used in this widest sense of the term, lies at the basis of all 
learning. It is a measure of educability." 

There are three important factors in memory. The impression must be 
"stamped in." It must be correctly associated with other impressions. It 
must be subject to recall and proper recognition. The strength of the im- 
pression is dependent upon many factors. The brain may be so altered by 
inherited defect, trauma, senility, fatigue, disease or toxic agents, that effec- 
tive and lasting impressions can not be made. So .long as the brain remams 
in the abnormal condition its receptivity can not be improved. The men- 
tally defective can be educated to a certain point, but can go no farther. An 
impression may be "stamped in" by the force or unusual character of the 
external stimulus. The external world demands the attention of the individ- 
ual and an unusual sight, noise or other sensation makes a never-to-be-for- 
gotten impression. This is known as passive attention and is common to all 
animals. It is the basic principle in all attempts to modify behavior through 
hope of reward or fear of punishment and is highly effective in the control 
and training of the lower animals and ignorant men, but loses in power 
with the development of intellect. However, in this and other universities, 
this appeal to increased effort is employed in the form of grades, admission 
to special societies, the bestowal of insignia of distinction, etc., and on most 
men in our stage of development it is not without eflfect. The approval of 
our fellows as shown by social, political and intellectual preferment, still 
proves a potent incentive to increased effort. With the development of in- 
tellect, passive attention is largely supplanted by the active form. In the 
latter the individual selects the stimuli which are to make permanent impres- 
sions. An important function in the accomplishment of this purpose is the 
rejection of stimuli believed to be unimportant or harmful and seizing upon 
and fixing of those recognized as of greatest value. In this selection lies 
the pathway to wisdom. It determines the ideals of the individual. It shapes 
the ^o and sets the lines of future development. The memory pictures 
photographed in the highly labile molecules of the brain constitute a record 
of all our available knowledge, not only that gained through personal experi- 
ence, but that acquired from any source. We rehear the spoken and reread 
the written word. We recall the facts of history. We utilize without con- 
scious effort in our daily dealings the mathematical skill acquired in child- 
hood. We make practical application of the scientific discoveries of the 
past in supplying ourselves with the necessities and comforts of life. We 
enjoy the literature of all nations in all ages. In short, the storehouses of 
learning to which we have access are practically limitless in their wealth 
and from this we may select at will and appropriate to our own use without 
diminishing to the smallest d^^ee what is left for others. 

In order to be of greatest service, memory pictures must be clear and 
properly placed. Clearness and association are essential to prompt recall 
and correct recognition. Memory, like all other functions of the nervous

mechanism, is capable of improvement by exercise. When memory pictures 
have a faulty setting, they may influence behavior disastrously. The old 
man thinks all this talk about impure milk killing infants and infected water 
causing typhoid fever is nonsense, because all his life people, both yoimg 
and old, have been drinking dirty milk and polluted water. He does not 
know or recognize the fact that many even within his own circle have died 
from these causes. In his experience these facts have not been recognized 
as possessing any causal relationship. Half his children have died from the 
summer diarrheas of infancy and others have died in youth from typhoid, 
but he has always connected these bereavements with the world-old belief 
that disease could not be prevented nor death delayed. The failure to prop- 
erly correlate experiences or their memory pictures is one of the tnings 
which prevents many elderly people, especially the untrained, from adjusting 
themselves to advances in knowledge. Many superstitious rites and cere- 
monies have their origin in the faulty conception of cause and effect. Many 
reason post hoc ergo propter hoc. This faulty logic is still a strong support 
of charlatanism in its many survival forms. 

The study of the structure and function of the nervous mechanism 
makes plain what should be attempted in securing an education. We have 
seen that in the acquisition of knowledge pathways to the cerebral cortex 
must be opened up. Conduction of nervous impulses meets with resist- 
ance as it passes from one neuron to the next. This resistance grows less 
with each traverse of the impulse along the same path and with frequent 
repetition the trail becomes so smooth that impulses pass through without 
conscious effort. It is easier to open up pathways to the cortex in youth 
than in later years because the liability and plasticity of the nervous tissue 
decrease with advancing age. However, lines of conduction established in 
the plastic period are never obliterated save by disease or death. Even with 
approaching senility, when the opening of new lines is impossible, those es- 
tablished in youth continue to operate. Truly, learning becomes the solace 
of age. The educated octogenarian remains in sympathy and intelligent 
touch with the outer world, while his untrained brother finds himself iso- 
lated and marooned on a small barren island. Furthermore, it has been 
demonstrated that the lines of conduction which serve in one department 
of learning are useless in the conduction of information from other sources. 
The acquisition of mathematical skill does not give special preparation for 
historical erudition. These elemental psychological facts indicate that in 
youth training of the nervous system should be broad, the purpose being to 
establish many and diversified sources for the supply of mental pabulum. 
Symmetrical exercise is as essential to the normal development of the 
nervous system as it is in muscular training. Athletes are not made by put- 
ting all muscles save one in plaster casts and exercising the free one, neither 
can the functions of the brain be properly developed in such a way. 

Dr. Vaughan then discussed the fundamental subjects which should 
form the basis of education. In turn he showed the desirability of the 
study of language, emphasizing Greek and Latin as a great factor in the 
comprehension of other languages partly derived from them. But the man

who knows the classics and nothing more is blind and deaf to much which 
is of the highest interest both to himself and his fellows. French and Ger- 
man are almost equally necessary for modem scientific workers, while math- 
ematics through plane trigonometry is an essential of everyone's develop- 
ment. History and the fundamental principles and facts of the physical, 
chemical and biological sciences should also be included in the courses 
taken by every student who wishes a broad and general education, whatever 
his business or professional calling is to be. 
The speaker then continued : 

While I have made an earnest plea for a broad, liberal, fundamental 
education in order that we may be in intelligent touch with the basic condi- 
tions that control and modify human behavior, there is like physiological, 
reason for advising every student to build on this broad foundation his spe- 
cialty. When you have reared your house with heavy rocks for the founda- 
tion, massive walls, bound together with steel beams, on this you can carry 
up as high as you please the tower which will afford you an outlook. Take 
one subject and know everything that is known about it and if possible know 
more than any one else. In other words, in addition to your general knowl- 
edge be a specialist. To your general knowledge, add the skill of the expert. 
The physiological reasons for this advice must be evident to all who have 
followed my Hne of argument. Neural pathways become smoother the more 
frequent the travel over them. I recommend expert development for the 
following reasons: (i) Extension of the domain of knowledge is secured. 
(2) The pleasure known only to the discoverer comes to him who does work 
of this kind. (3) It is a rest and recreation to turn into the well-worn paths 
along which thought moves automatically. 

It is not essential that the special study, which I recommend, should be 
in the Hne of one's vocation. It may lie. quite apart from business or pro- 
fessional duties. 

Many examples from the lives of men who have advanced human 
knowledge were then given to show that the special study recommended 
must not necessarily be in the line of one's vocation. 



SOCIAL SERVICE FOR MICHIGAN MEN 

Social service is not a new work for the college man. Nor is the field of 
civic reform at all foreign to him. But special organization of college grad- 
uates for this work, a movement which has recently started in New York and 
some of our other large cities, is distinctly new. It is an organized effort to 
make the college man an efficient and useful member of the community, and 
to make his training and efficiency of use in return for the benefits which he 
has received. It is to the college men that the states are looking more and 
more for the intelligent co-operation necessary to n^ake the social and politi- 
cal ledger show a balance on the right side. In harmony with this general 
movement on the part of the graduates of all our larger universities in

iqh] social service for MICHIGAN MEN 147 

New York, the University of Michigan Club of New York has appointed a 
committee consisting of Stanley D. McGraw, '92, Chairman; Allen M. 
Broomhall, '02, Treasurer; William A. Ewing, '64; Victor H. Jackson, 'yyd, 
ySm; George E. Cutler, '85; William McAndrew, '86; Royal S. Copeland, 
'89A and Arnold L. Davis, '98/, to co-operate with the alumni of other col- 
leges in enlisting recent graduates who come to New York in some form of 
volunteer service for the community. Requests have been received from the 
Boys* Clubs, Settlements, Churches, Boy Scouts, Big Brother Movement, 
Charities, the City Club, Political Parties and all the leading civic and 
social organizations for men to give a little of their spare time. 

Seven other cities have similar alumni committees — Chicago, Pitts- 
burgh, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, Buffalo and Montreal — all em- 
braced in a national plan of the Y. M. C. A. to connect college graduates 
with social and civic activities in the communities where they locate. The 
organizer of this work is Oliver F. Cutts, the star tackle of the Harvard 
team of 1901. The seniors in the colleges and universities have been asked 
to indicate before commencement to what places they are going and what 
form of service most interests them. The names of these seniors are then 
sent to Mr. Cutts who distributes them to the committees in charge of the 
work in each city. When the men arrive they are called upon by the Field 
Secretary who gives them an opportunity to take up some congenial social 
work. 

During the past year twenty-five Michigan men in New Yoric have 
been interested in acting as "big brothers" to boys from the Children's 
Court, in working with the Charity Organization Society, in Boy's Clubs, in 
Boy Scouts, in teaching a naturalization class at the Y. M. C. A., in giving 
legal advice, in watching at the polls and in other forms of political work 
for good government. Of the committee, one is running a big club of 
street boys in one of the suburbs ; one has thrown open the high school of 
which he is principal for the use of the people of the East Side neighbor- 
hood in which it is located for practically the entire time outside of school 
hours, giving them a roof garden, gymnasium, dance floor, auditorium and 
picture gallery; one is active in the Big Brother Movement and two are 
officers of the Y. M. C. A.* 

The general outline of the work before this organization is given in an 
article published in the Nezv York Evening Post for July 11, which The 
Alumnus takes pleasure in reprinting in part. 



Back in 19 ri somebody awoke to the fact that every year there were 
coming to New York City about 1,000 college graduates. These men, it was 
realized, were drifting into the city, rooming in scattered sections, working 
by day and finding their own pursuits of pleasure or study in the evening, 
without ever getting into very close touch with many of the most significant 
affairs of New York. Politics looked like a rather big and complicated 

♦The committee will be glad to hear of Michigan men coming to New York or 
have any man look up the Chairman, Stanley D. McGraw, '92, iii Broadway, or the

machine for a young man, with time taken up by many other interests, 
to try to study with a view to doing much actual work in connection with it. 
The worst social conditions in the city, together with the work being done 
to remedy them, were out of sight, so that little appeal was made to the 
interest of the new arrival. There was no one to tell them where to begin. 
The result was that this company of i,ooo potentially valuable citizens was 
being allowed to sift into the great mass of the population, become lost, 
and go on past the time when interest could be most naturally aroused 
toward the time when other aflFairs and the inertia of established routine 
would make it hard to stir the men to much active effort. 

The result was that a committee was formed to get hold of the new 
men coming to New York year by year. They began by getting the names 
of recent graduates in New York from college registrars, class secretaries, 
alumni clubs, and friends. The work began naturally among men of Yale, 
Harvard. Princeton, and the other universities having large bodies of alumni 
in New York, but it spread rapidly to others. Williams, Columbia, Cornell, 
Amherst, Pennsylvania, and Michigan are among the institutions that have 
special committees for the work now, and others are showing an interest 
that indicates that the list will continue to grow steadily. From this period 
of the summer, when the first men are settling to their work after taking 
off their commencement gowns and getting their diplomas framed, to the 
late fall, when the last of the contingent who rounded off their courses 
with a final long vacation will have been placed, the academic invasion of 
New York will be under way, and the intercollegiate committee work will be 
at its rush time.* 

New York, however, is not the only city in which campaigning is being 
done. The advantages of the new plan for turning the training of college 
men to useful account in city life were quickly seen, and the news of the 
New York movement spread. Boston and Chicago have already followed 
the lead in organized effort along similar lines, and are working in co- 
operation with New York. Oliver F. Cutts, Harvard Law School, '03, is in 
charge of the general organization work. The plan is to carry the work as 
far as the interest of college men themselves can be made to take it, and to 
set only the country itself as a final natural limit to the ultimate scope of the 
work. The ideal is for the development of a nation-wide force of college 
men enlisted under this central leadership for concerted effort to improve 
the life of the places they adopt as their hon>es. With each new lot of grad- 
uates being followed from their colleges, it is not hard to imagine the work 
growing to such proportions, since each man will be encouraged by the sense 
that he is working in unison with others all over the country and is not 
making a more or less futile effort alone. 

Whenever it is possible, the appeal is made by men of the same college 
as the man who is approached, and often men of the same college are 
brought together on the same work. Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, 
and Columbia are each centering a group of boys' club leaders in one settle- 
ment in New York. This method is found to be most successful wherever 
it can be carried out. When it can not, however, the appeal of the work 
itself is usually strong enough, once the men are actually in it.

1914] SOCIAL SERVICE FOR MICHIGAN MEN 149 

The principle of making up the committees of the various colleges that 
are carrying forward the work of getting in touch with the new men is sim- 
ilar to the more general organization work. It is recognized that as a man 
grows older and has been out of college some years, he begins to acciunulate 
duties which interfere with such work, and also that he begins to get out of 
touch with the actual undergraduate body. So the aim is to keep filling in 
the committees with a man or two suggested as valuable for such work, 
from each class as it leaves college. At the same time, one or two of the 
older members are able to drop out and leave their duties to younger hands. 
In this way, the membership and influence of the committees are kept con- 
stantly fresh, while the new men always come into a board experienced in 
the work and able to give training before its officers pass on. 

The work to be done is as varied as the life of the citie? themselves. 
Almost any man can find something to his taste. Political parties, the 
churches, citizens' unions, and city clubs, the Boy Scouts, the Big Brother 
organization, the Young Men's Christian Association, and numerous char- 
itable and social enterprises are among the institutions interested in the 
movement and working in co-operation with it. During the years of 1912 
and 1913 men in New York were interested in settlement work, boys' club 
work, civic and political work, Sunday schools, legal aid, teaching English 
to foreigners, social surveys, and friendly visiting for the Charity Organiza- 
tion Society. A number of the men were prime movers in the Honest 
Ballot Association, which had so great an influence in the recent election. 
In general, the work takes one evening a week, or more time if the men 
want to give it. • 

Qualifications for the work are so many that they cannot be listed. 
Even the star banjo-player of the college glee club can find in connection 
with this movement some actually useful purpose to which his ability can 
be turned, for musical talent is at a premium. Athletes, of course, are in 
particular demand in connection with boys' club work, for there is no man 
who can more quickly command the admiration and loyalty of the boys than 
the man with a fine body and athletic skill. There is no more magic charm 
than the university letter that means that its wearer used to "play on the 
team." 

Dramatic ability may be turned to organizing wholesome neighborhood 
entertainments. Training in law or technical lines can all be used in teach- 
ing the foreigners, who are only too anxious to learn about the country to 
which they have come and of its work, and who often need only the spur 
of the information and encouragement in first principles that a trained man 
can give to urge them to take up study and make trained men of themselves. 
Knowledge of medicine is always needed in aiding the hundreds of ignorant 
families to improve their ways of living. A hobby that appeals to boys, a 
love of outdoor life that may be made the basis of plans for taking boys 
for excursions and camping in the country, the ability to gain the affection 
and confidence of a boy, so necessary in the men in the Big Brother Move- 
ment, who are trying to do something with the boys who get into the courts 
and are in danger of becoming habitual criminals, all can be used by college 
men whose training has given them a conception of character and the intelli-

I50 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [December 

gence to use their influence to make better citizens of the boys they can 
control. Interest in civic reform can always find an outlet in political activ- 
ity, and men willing to help by real work can always secure with ease the 
introductions necessary to put them in touch with the party organization 
leaders in their communities. 

Instances of the activities that some of the men are already carrying 
on give the best idea of how broad a field is covered. One civil engineer 
has become a member of the Sanitation Committee of the Kips Bay Neigh- 
boorhood Association in New York, working on sanitary and sewerage 
problems, in the district. Another man has charge .of a group of youngsters 
at the carpenter benches of the Warren Goddard House; one is leading 
a boys' gym club, and another coaching a minstrel show at the same settle- 
ment. A mechanical engineer is teaching a civil service class in the Sta- 
tionary Firemen's Labor Union, instructing men who are eager to qualify 
as stationary engineers. Another civil engineer spent some time investigat- 
ing factories for fire prevention, and took a club of boys in training to be 
citizens. Boys' club work is one of the most significant lines of endeavor 
that the college men take up, and one for which the great majority of men 
willing to try are reasonably well fitted. 

That the social agencies are beginning to recognize the usefulness of 
the inter-collegiate organization is indicated in the requests for help which 
have been coming in. From one settlement came the word : "Twenty clubs 
waiting to be admitted for want of directors and equipment. We need men 
to visit the neighborhood about sanitary precautions. We need men to inter- 
est themselves in finding ways to rgach these new citizens and help them to 
become part of our country." The Charity Organization Society wrote: 
"We need men in all parts of the city." The secretary of the Big Brother 
Movement sent in a call for one hundred men to provide "big brothers" 
for boys who had come before the Children's Court. 

A college man active in politics wrote : "There is no better field than 
New York for a college man who wishes to do political work. A man who 
is willing to help will find himself welcome in most political organizations." 
This fall should see a noticeable extension of the intercollegiate work 
along many lines, for it will be the first year that the committees will have 
the advantage of being given the addresses of the new men through 
the clearing house that is handling the blanks which have been filled out by 
this year's seniors. Already the committee has gotten in touch with 250 
men through these blanks, and many more should be added before the count 
is complete. The first work to be done is to give the prospective workers 
a sort of bird's-eye view of the field to be covered. This is done by holding 
meetings at which men prominent in the various lines of work meet the 
graduates and talk with them, and also by taking the men out to see some 
of the actual social work that is being carried on. As the movement grows, 
the central committee offices at 554 West 114th Street bid fair to find them- 
selves the headquarters for one of the most significant campaigns of volun- 
teer civic reform yet undertaken in the country.

ATHLETICS 



MICHIGAN, 34; PENNSYLVANIA, 3 

The Michigan team reached its highest 
point of efficiency when it trounced its old- 
time foe, the Pennsylvania Quakers, by 
the satisfactory score of 34 to 3, on the af- 
ternoon of November 7. Everything which 
had been expected, and which Yost had 
hoped would be used, in the Harvard game, 
came out on this Saturday, in a brilliant, 
smas>hing attack and a stonewall defense 
which held the rangy opponents helpless 
throughout the hour of play. 

Like its predecessors in years past, the 
1914 appearance of Pennsylvania on Ferry 
Field was the signal for a homecoming of 
thousands of alumni, and a crowd of ap- 
proximately 23,000 people packed the stands 
for the game. Ann Arbor took on its an- 
nual appearance of collegiate gaiety, and 
a perfect co-operation by th« Weather Man 
combined to make this Qusdcer-Wolver- 
ine game the banner event of Michigan's 
1914 gridiron history. 

The Varsity was unbeatable this afiter- 
noon of November 7. It had been prophe- 
sied by many that th« men had "gone stale" 
from their supreme efforts in the Harvard 
game. And for the first part of the open- 
ing quarter, it looked as if these predic- 
tions were to prove true. 

But from the moment Matthew of Penn 
kicked his drop-kick from the 30-yard line 
and put the visitors out in front with 
the only score of the game up to that 
point. Captain Raynsford and his men 
rallied to tiie attack which took them sweep- 
ing down the field to an overwhelming 
victory. 

The Varsity's quota of points in the 
second quarter was 20, and 14 more were 
added in the third. A second string of 
backs, shoved into the game in the last 
period, was responsible for the absence of 
further scores in this quarter. From the 
time when Matthew had made his drop- 
kick, up until the very last moments of 
play, when a series of short forward passes 
took the ball down into Michigan terri- 
tory, Pennsylvania was helpless on ti>e 
offense. The whole of the intervening time 
was taken up by the Varsity scoring ma- 
x:hine's activities in making touchdowns. 

Open play won the game for Michigan. 
Two double passes were the direct cause 
of the first touchdown. One of them en- 



abled Catlett to carry the ball well down 
into Penn territory with a 9-yard gain. 
A series of short plunges by Maulbetsch 
took the pigskin to the 5-yard line, and here 
Hughitt and Catlett negotiated their sec- 
ond double pass ami the Varsity had scored. 

The second and third touchdowns came 
directly through two brilliant forward pas- 
ses. Benton was on the receiving end of 
the first one, taking the ball from Splawn 
following a double pass back of the Mich- 
igan line, and racing the last 7 yards to a 
touchdown. The oUier forward pass was 
typical of the deadly team play of the 
Varsity. A toss to Benton from Hughitt 
was a little too hard, bounding off the 
left end's finger tips. But Staatz was 
racing alongside of Benton on the play, 
and raked in the ball as it glanced from his 
team-mate's hands toward him. He was 
downed on the 6-yard line, 20 yards being 
made on the play. From here Maulbetsch 
took the ball over on two plunges. 

Hughitt and Maulbetsch made the other 
two touchdowns for the Varsity, straight, 
hard football, with an occasional trick and 
some open formations, being responsible for 
the gains which made the last goal-crossing 
plunge possible. 

As in the games which preceded the 
Penn battle, Michigan's left halfback, Maul- 
betsch, was the offensive star, his grinding, 
smashing plunges through the Penn de- 
fense netting more ground than that made 
by any other single man on the Michigan 
offense. His gains were rendered posstble, 
however, by the effective work of the 
Varsity linemen in opening up holes in the 
Penn defense. Reimann, Cochran and Mc- 
Hale were especially effective in this par- 
ticular, shoving the Quaker forwards aside 
as Maulbetsch slashed by. Catlett was an- 
other offensive star, slippery end runs mak- 
ing his every attempt to gain a spectacular 
dash past the Penn tacklers. 

Splawn, though punting better than at 
any previous time this year, missed two at- 
tempts at drop-kicks. He and Hughitt had 
completely recovered from the injuries 
which rendered them ineffective at Har- 
vard, and both played strong games. Ben- 
ton and Staatz at ends were far better than 
the veterans who opposed them, Benton es- 
pecially starring all the way.

CORNELL, 28; MICHIGAN, 13 

All the thrills of victory, then of thread- 
bare hope of a win, and finally of defeat, 
were combined in the game which closed 
the Michigan gridiron season on Ferry 
Field, when the veteran eleven from Cor- 
nell trotmced the Varsity wit^ a score of 
28 to 13. It was the ability of the ex- 
perienced, seasoned players from Ithaca to 
"come back" in the second half, which won 
them the^ heart-breaking^ victory. They 
sihowed this ability so convincingly that even 
the most enthusiastic Maize rooter was 
willing to admit that the winners were the 
better team. 

The Varsity started into this last game 
of the year with the same brilliant dash 
and attack which had characterized its 
play in the Penn clash, an(} the spurt gave 
Michigan a 13 to 6 lead for the first half. 
But this attack crumpled, and with it the 
defense, when the veteran Ithacans started 
their terrific, battering offense in the sec- 
ond half, an offense which first rolled back 
the Michigan defense, and then completely 
routed it. 

It was the fact that, at any time up to 
the middle of the final quarter, the Varsity 
might have gone out in front with a spurt, 
that gave to the game its thrills. Even 
after the visitors had scored three touch- 
downs, Michigan might have taken the 
lead by crossing the goal line and kicking 
the extra point, for the Cornell kickers were 
consecutively missing their attempts at 
kicking goal. But when the field-goal by 
Barrett and the dashing 58-jrard sprint for 
a touchdown by this same brilliant Comel- 
lian had robbed the Wolverines of their 



last hope, the game turned into a rout, and" 
the winners were marching to another 
touchdown when the final whistle blew. 

The brilliant work of Barrett on offense, 
the impregnable defense of Captain 
O'Hearn at end, and the concerted, smash- 
ing attack of the Cornell backs, featured 
the game played by the winners. Barrett's^ 
punting outclassed that of Splawn, while 
his slashing en<l runs time after time put 
his team within striking distance, and once 
took the ball over for a score from up in 
his own territory. 

In the words of Coach Yost, "Michigan 
lost her *gimp' in the second half." Rei- 
mann, Cochran and Staatz were helpless- 
before the concerted attack which the Cor- 
nell backs pounded at them, and succes- 
sive marches down the field for touch- 
downs resulted. Twice the Varsity rallied* 
and seemed about to retrieve their lost 
ground. Once they took the ball near the 
middle of the field and Maulbetsch pro- 
ceeded to smash his way through for 
consistent gains. This rally came just at 
the opening of the fourth quarter, Whtn- 
the score stood at Cornell 19, Michigan 13, 
with the chance for the Varsity to go- 
ahead with 7 points. But a forward pass 
to Catlett from Splawn went out of bounds- 
and the opportunity was gone. 

At another time a well-executed for- 
ward pass to Catlett, who had been con- 
cealed along the side-lines, netted a gain- 
of over 40 yards. Maulbetsch failed on 
two attempts to gain through the line, and 
when two tricks, one a forward pass and 
the other from a place-kick formation, 
failed, the ball went over to the Ithacans, 
and the last opportunity to make up lost 
ground was past. 

The Varsity's scores came early, and' 
seemed to prophesy the same kind of a 
Michigan victory which had humbled Penn* 
the week before. A fumbled punt by Bar- 
rett gave Michigan the ball far down in 
Cornell territory. A couple of line plunges- 
advanced the ball a short distance, and then 
the same kind of a double pass, ending in^ 
a forward heave, which had fooled Penn- 
sylvania, so demoralized the Cornellians 
that Staatz was able to take the ball while 
standing behind the Red goal line, and 
score the first touchdown. 

A long forward pass, Hughitt to Ben- 
ton, put the ball on the Cornell ii-yard line 
at the opening of the second quarter, and 
here Yost's now famous "talking play" put 
the ball over. In this play the Varsity 
lined up, only to seem to hesitate as Tommy 
Hughitt called a "change signals," and' 
started to walk back toward a new position. 
Off guard, the Cornellians were easy prey 
to the unexpected plunge of Maulbetsch, 
who dashed into their midst while Hughitt

was still talking ; and the Varsity had scor- 
ed thdr second and last touchdown. 

With the Coraellians leading the attack 
during most of the game, Michigan's de- 
fensive players were given a better chance 
to star than were the backs. Captain Rayns- 
ford, Cochran and Benton showed best of 
all. Hughitt and Maulbetsch were the chief 
cogs in the offense. During the brief time 
he was in at end, Dunne exhibited a spec- 
tacular strength.

law team by the score of 2 to o> the team 
representing the sophomore lit class won 
the Campus football championship in the 
last game of the season, on November 20. 
Although a lit player later admitted that 
he had been responsible for a mistaken 
decision by the umpire which gave the game 
to his team, the class leaders refused to 
play the game over and the title therefore 
went to the 1917 men. 

The championship game brought to a 
close an unusually successful season, in 
which 13 teams contested in close to a 
half -hundred games. For the first time in 
the history of interclass athletics, a thor- 
ough coadhing system was in vognie, and 
many of the teams had the advantage of 
skilled teaching. More care was taken 
in the matter of keeping in condition and 
in practicing, the ultimate champions in 
particular showing their earnestness by 
appearing for practice every day during 
the season. 

The contested play which resulted in the 
safety came in the third quarter of the 
championship game after Thurston of the 



lits had punted close down to the law goal 
line. Rowan, playing back for his team, 
allowed the ball to bounce along, hoping 
that it would go over the goal line for a 
touchback. A scuffle occurred near the ball 
just before it became "dead" and Umpire 
Crawford ruled that Rowan had caused it 
to bounce behind the goal line, where the 
law player touched it down. The play was 
ruled a safety, but later Joslyn of the win- 
ners admitted that it was he who had 
knocked the ball back of the law goal.

COCHRAN ELECTED CAPTAIN; HUGHITT 
WINS CUP 

William D. Cochran and Ernest F. Hugh- 
itt won the most coveted post-season honors 
among Michigan's Varsity football play- 
ers, the former being chosen as captain of 
the 191S team, and the latter winning the 
Schulz-Heston trophy cup which each year 
goes to the man deemed most valuable to 
his team. 

The election of Cochran, right tackle on 
the igLj. Varsity, came at the time of the 
taking of the football picture. For the 
first time in many years, he was the unani- 
mous choice of his fellows, getting the fif- 
teen ballots on the formal vote. In the in- 
formal balloting but two other men had 
been named, each getting one vote apiece. 

Michigan's new captain starred on de- 
fense all durinp: the season just past, and 
was also effective in opening up holes for 
his backs. His home is in Houghton, Mich., 
where he played four years of prep, school 
football, working at center. Inasmuch as 
Yost loses his 1914 center through the grad- 
uation of Captain James Raynsford, it is 
more than likely that once more Michigan 
will be led on the field in 1915 by a center- 
captain. Ra3msford was a successor to 
Center "Bubbles" Paterson, the leader in 

1913. 

Hughitt's winning of the Schulz-Heston 
cup marks the second year of its award, 
James B. Craig being the man to receive it 
in 1913. This year's holder was practically 
the tmanimous choice of the trophy com- 
mittee. Captain Raynsford coming second,

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[December 



Maulbetsch third and Codiran fourth. Head 
Coach Yost, Assistant Coach "Oermany" 
Schulz, one of the famous Michigan ath- 
letes after whom Huston Brothers, the 
donors of the trophy, named the award, 
and Trainer Steve Farrell composed the 
award board, each voting for four men in 
the order of their choice. Hughitt was 
given two first and one third. 

ALL-AMERICAN AND ALL-WESTERN 
TEAMS 

In all the numerous selections of All- 
Western and All-American football teams 
which preceded the naming of the eleven 
generally conceded the highest place, that 
of Walter Camp of Yale, the name of 
Maulbetsch, left halfback on the 1914 Var- 
sity, was most generally accorded a place. 
He was practically the only Michigan play- 
er to be accorded first recognition, though 
several of the other players were given 
places on the "second" elevens. 

In the All- Western teams named by Wal- 
ter Eckersall of the Chicago Tribune, and 
G. W. Axelson of the Chicago Herald, 
Maulbetsch was placed at a halfback post 
Eckersall put Captain Raynsford at center 
^n his second team, giving Cochran a place 
at guard on the same eleven. Axelson 
named Hughitt as his second string quar- 
terback, putting him next to the whirlwind 
mini, Clark. 

Eastern critics, evidently impressed by 
Maulbetsch's showing against Harvard, 
have heen nearly unanimous in putting the 
Wolverine in their mjrthical backfields. The 
other Michigan players, however, have 
failed to get general recognition. 



SIXTEEN -MV AWARDED 

Sixteen Varsity football players received 
the certificates which entitle them to the 
coveted gridiron "M", in the annual Mich- 
igan Union football smoker which was held 
in Waterman gymnasium on the Tuesday 
night following the Cornell game. The 
award was based mainly on participation 
in the Pennsylvania and Cornell games, 
those making the selections being Coach 
Yost, Captain James W. Raynsford, Trainer 
Steve Farrell and Graduate Director Phillip 
G. Bartelme. 

The award of the certificates came just 
at the close of the smoker at which nearly 
1500 rooters had been given their final 
chance to let loose with their yells for the 
1914 Varsity. Professor Ralph W. Aigler, 
of the Law Department, a member of the 
athletic board in control, made the award, 
calling each athlete to the platform to re- 
ceive his *'diploma" of gridiron merit. Cap- 
tain James W. Raynsford, Captain-elect 
Wiliam D. Cochran and the veteran Tom- 



my Hughitt came first, and were received 
enthusiastically, with Maulbetsch also being 
accorded deafening applause as he marched 
up. All of these men had to make short 
speeches to the insistent rooters before they 
were allowed to sit down. 

The sixteen who this year won the coveted 
letter were Captain Raynsford, Cochran, 
Hughitt, Catlett, Lyons, James, Bushnell, 
McHale, Dunne, Reimann, Watson, Staatz, 
Benton, Maulbetsch, Splawn, and Bastian. 

Of those who played ii^ the two final 
games, Huebel was the only man who did 
not win a letter, the selection committee 
ruling him out because of the fact that he 
had played in but a small number of games. 
James, veteran substitute end, was given an 
"M" although he did not play in either of 
the big home games. 

The big smoker was the occasion of one 
of the few public addresses which Coach 
Fielding H. Yost has made at Michigan, 
Refusing to get onto the platform, Yost 
stood out in front of the huge gathering 
and told what he thought of the men who 
had played for him this year, and what he 
thought of Michigan athletics. Not a sound 
save the coach's soft drawl sounded during 
that speech and when it was over he was 
given a reception which made even the 
roof-raising noise of the forepart of the 
celebration sound very small. 

"In all my years at Michigan I have 
never had to work with a more consci- 
entious, a more loyal and willing lot of 
men than those who have played this year," 
was the tribute which Yost paid to the 
1914 Varsity. 

"In every game which Michigan has play- 
ed in this and other years, her men have 
played clean, have played for the love of 
the sport and its good name," was the 
tribute he paid to Wolverine athletics. 

"This year we had green men. Next 
year we will have a more experienced 
team. It all depends, of course, on what 
the men do when they get out on the field, 
but prospects are bright now if the men 
work," was his prophecy for the season 
of 191 5. He said lots more that sank deep 
into the minds and hearts of those who 
listened to him, but these key-notes stood 
out above the rest. 

The smoker of November 17 marked 
the second thne that Michigan's football 
players have been given certificates entit- 
ling them to die Varsity letter. So success- 
ful has the practice proven that it is plan- 
ned to continue it, and the annual Michigan 
Union Smoker will be the occasion of the 
presentation. 

At this smoker Attorney Francis 'D. 
Eaman, '00, of Detroit, James Schermer- 
horn, publisher of the Detroit Times, Pro- 
fessor Robert E. Bunker, of the Law De-

Carpenter, '14, '17I, were the speakers. 
President P. Duffy Koontz, of the Union, 
acted as toastmaster, and lantern pictures 
of the players, with plenty of band music 
and singing, made the smoker an enthu- 
siastic ovation for the 1914 Varsity. 

On the morning of the smoker, announce- 
ment was made by the athletic officials of

a special order, to be taken up at the next 
meeting of the Board.— The title of Dr. C 
G. Darling was changed from Clinical Pro- 
fessor of Surgery to Professor of Surgery.

be relieved of some of the work as 'head 
of the surgical department of the Medical 
School and Hospital.— The Board passed a 
vote of thanks to Edward J. Marshall, a

tory. This gift is a very valuable one.— The 
Board authorized the printing of 150 copies 
of the records of the proceedings of the 
University Regents from the year 1837, 
when the University was establislhedi, till 
1864, when the first Regents Proceedings 
were printed and filed away. This makes 
available every act of every Board since 
the first meeting in 1837.— Professor 
Henry C. Adams was granted a leave of 
absence, for the first semester of 1915-16, 
that he might return to China and com-

thanks was extended to the following, all but 
one of whom are Detroit men, for the fund,

BIRNnNGHAM 

The second annual banquet of the Alumni 
Association for the State of Alabama, was 
held in the private dining room of the 
Newspaper Club, Birmingham, Ala., at 
eight o'clock, on the evening of the four- 
teenth of November. 

The program of the dinner was the cul- 
minating part of a day that was full of in- 
teresting events for the Men of Michigan. 
Our celebration began at 1 130 in the after- 
noon, when eighteen of us gathered at the 
Hillman Hotel, to shake "tends, and don 
our colors. The official colors were at- 
tached to the lapels of each man. And in 
machines, flying the Maize and Blue, we 
went out to the game. The game staged, 
was between Auburn, the Southern cham- 
pions, and our "kinsfolk," Vanderbilt. Mc- 



Lane Tilton, Jr., '00/, probably the best 
known alumnus in the State, was host to 
our party at the game. It was a good 
event and every one of the eighteen attend- 
ing, from Major Pettibone, '59, to the last 
man from above the Mason-Dixon line, sat 
through the drizzling rain and watched 
Coach McGugin's men, crippled as they 
were, hold the strong Alabama Plainmen to 
a hard earned 6-0 victory. "A dry field!" 
is all that Dan would say. 

At the game, with a six-foot banner, set- 
ting out "Michigan" in yellow on the blue 
background, stretched across our boxes, we 
attracted Mr. Scott, '78, of Duluth, Minn., 
to our fold. It was a pleasure to have hhn 
with us. Then, between halves and after 
the game, we had Mr. McGugin as a visitor. 
We returned to the city and lounged 
around the Club rooms, trying to figure out 
the "why" of the Cornell score, till the time 
set for the banquet. No satisfactory an- 
swer was reached. 

There are about sixty eligible Michigan 
men in the State of Alabama. There were 
twenty-two at the banquet, a good percent- 
age. The following program was given, 
with words from several of the others 
there. 

Introduction of Toastmaster, Mr. Henry Geismer, 
'q7c — President, Mr. McLane Tilton, 'ool. Pell 
City. 

The Michigan Union — Mr. J. L. Cox, '12, Bir- 
mingham. 

Michigan's Influence in the South — Mr. Hugh 
McElderry, '981, Talladega. 

Michigan and Ann Arbor in the '50's — Major A. 
H. Pettibone, '59, Birmingham. 

Michigan and Athletics — Coach McGugin, '04I, 
Nashville, Tenn.

caloosa. 

Coach McGugin was the guest of honor 
at the dinner, and his responses to the 
steady flow of questions from the men fur- 
nished the life of the dinner period. 

Preceding the pr(»ram, the business 
meeting was held The officers for the 
next year were elected, as fallows: presi- 
dent, Mr. H. S. Gcismer, '97^; vice-presi- 
dent, Mr. C. B. Davis, 'oie; and secretary, 
Mr. H. F. Pelham, '11, '13/. The secretary 
was instructed to appoint a committee of 
two, who with himself, were ordered to 
draw up resolutions on the death of Robert 
Emmett Nolan, '11/, whose death in New 
York City on the 23rd of September, last, 
took from us the founder of our associa- 
tion^ and a friend of the first water. 

It was voted not to invite and attempt to 
entertain the Glee Club this coming Christ- 
mas season, due to the announcements that 
Birmingham is to have the Alabama, Au- 
burn and Yale clubs during the Holi<lays. 
A vote of thanks was given, standing, to 
Mr. Tilton for his entertainment of the 
afternoon. 

The Banquet. Mr. McLane Tilton, the 
president, proposed a silent toast to Presi- 
dent Wilson, — we all belong to the "Solid 
South*' down here — and then one was ten- 
dered to the memory of Robert Emmett 
Nolan. Mr. H. S. Geismer was introduced 
to the gathering as the toastmaster of the 
occasion, and responded by calling on each 
man to arise after his name was called 
and acknowledge the same by bowing. And 
things started there. Cares and worries, 
pontics and 7c cotton, war and the Cornell 
score, were all forgotten — Ann Arbor was 
the situs of our minds. The orchestra 
played "The Victors," and we drowned the 
Airf)um cheers of the main dining room, 
with ours for "Meechigun." And when 
"The Yellow and Blue" was sung as we 
stood, the dancers of the auditorium stop- 
ped to witness our tribute to our Alma 
Mater. 

Major Pettibone, '59, told us of the es- 
capades of his day and of his two political 
victories over "Bob" Taylor for Congress, 
from Tennessee. His interest, both at the 
game and at the banquet, made us younger 
men realize that the love for Ann Arbor 
grows as does the number of years that 
pass, after we leave the banks of the 
Huron. 

Those present were: 

D. E. Lowell, 'oSe, Annlston; Professor C. L. 
Hare, A,M. '03, Auburn; Major A. H. Pettibone,

loyalty, we closed with the ever-new "The

November 11, discussing some features of 
English university life. On November 25,

UMA. OHIO 

The University of Michigan Alumni As- 
sociation of Lima, organized a year ago, 
and now numbering almost one hundred 
members, held its second annual meeting 
at the Lima Club, Thursday, November 
10. Officers were elected for the coming 
year and two amendments were made to 
the constitution. 

Judge Theodore D. Robb, Mayor of 
Lima, was elected honorary president of 
the Association for life. The officers for 
the year were elected as follows: 

Judge Martin L. Becker, '72}, president. 
Dr. Oliver S. Stdner, *oim, vice-president. 
Ralph P. Mackenzie, 'iil, secretary. 
Fred E. Gooding, '10, treasurer. 
W. B. Kirk, ^71, member alumni advisory 
council. 

The following were chosen as members 
of the Executive Committee: 

Christian P. Morris, '11; Dr. Paul J. Stueber, 
*i2m; Dan R. Triplehom, 'iil; Branson H. 
Holmes, 'o4-*o6; Donald F. Melhom, '11, '14I, of 
Kenton. Hardin Co., Ohio: James P. Leasure, 
'89I, of Ottawa, Putnam Co., Ohio; Lewis F. 
Stout, '08I, of Wapakoneta, Auglaize Co., Ohio. 

The ftrst amendment to the Constitution 
was in regard to the membership. Accord- 
ing to the Constitution, as adopted in 1913, 
all University of Michigan men having at- 
tended the University for one year in good 
standing, residing in Lima and vicinity 
were eligible. As amended all Universi^ 
of Michigan men having attended the Uni- 
versity for one year in good standing re- 
siding in Hardin, Auglaize, Van Wert, Put- 
nam and Allen Counties, are eligible for 
membership in the University of Michigan 
Alumni Association of Lima. It was 
agreed, however, that as more than fifty per 
cent of the members reside in LinKi, the 
name of the organization should remain 
the same. 

The second amendment of the Constitu- 
tion increased the number of the members 
of the Executive Committee from four to 
eight with a provision that at least one 
member should be chosen from each of 
the counties represented in the organization. 
With the exception of a member from Van 



Wert County, the members of this Com- 
mittee were chosen at this meeting. 

It was further decided at the meeting 
that a banquet be given by the Association 
early in the year, the details to be worked 
out by the Executive Committee. 

Ralph P. Mackenzie, 
Secretary. 



MUSKOGEE, OKLA. 

With but a few days of preparation, a 
successful meeting of Michigan alumni was 
held on the day of the Harvard-Michigan 
game, October 31, at Muskogee, Oklahoma. 
It was the first time in eight years that a 
meeting of Michigan men had been at- 
tempted, but so hearty was the response to 
the call that it was decided to hold regular 
meetings in the future, to which alumni 
from surrounding towns will be invited. 

During the afternoon, reports of the 
progress of the game were received. A 
banquet was served at the Severs Hotel at 
seven o'clock, with Bert E. Nussbaum, '96/, 
as toastmaster. Toasts were responded to 
as follows: "The Original Law Faculty," 
Charles Wheeler, '82/; "The Medical Fac- 
ulty," Dr. E. H. Troy, '91W, of Mc- 
Alester, Okla.; **Michigan Football Con- 
quests," E. A. de Meules, /'oi-'oj; "Our 
Duty to Alma Mater," Glenn Akorn, '12/; 
'^Michigan's Influence," John A. Bel ford, 
'03/, of Okmulgee, Okla.; "Michigan and 
Harvard as Rivals," H. A. Leekley, Har- 
vard, '97. The dinner was interspersed 
with Michigan yells and songs, that were 
responded to with great enthusiasm. Let- 
ters of regret were read from alumni un- 
able to attend. Those present in addition 
to those above mentioned were: George 
C. Ackers, '04/, C. A. Ambrister, /'o7-'o8, 
H. L. Armstrong, '12/, Dr. Leo E. Bennett, 
'80m, W. H. Caudill, '10/, Ezra Branerd, 
'04/, W. S. Cochrane, '05/, Carl H. Cooper,

Judge John H. King, '03/, J. Prewitt Nel- 
son, '11, William Hinton, /'io-'i2, Fred S. 
Zick, '11/. 

B. E. Nussbaum. 



OMAHA 

The Michigan men of Omaha congregat- 
ed at the University Club on October 31 
and received the reports of the Harvard 
game by special wire. We rooted hard for 
old Michigan and it was the unanimous 
opinion of everyone that in view of the 
splendid showing made, the team deserves 
another chance at Harvard. 

On November 5, Dr. R. M. Wenley was 
in the city, speaking before the Palimpset 
Club and the Nebraska State Teachers' con- 
vention. A number of the local alumni

PASADENA ALUMNAE 

On Saturday, November 21, the Alumnae 
Association of Pasadena held its regular 
meeting at the home of Mrs. Ralph W. 
Bailey, '00. A delightful luncheon was 
served, the following members being pres- 
ent: Mrs. John D. Mersereau, '81; Mrs. 
Emma G. Grossman, '95; Mrs. Mabel T. 
Butler, '01; Mrs. Clayton R. Taylor, '92; 
Mrs. Harold H. Clark, '02; Mrs. Edward 
F. Parker, '05; Dr. Alice C. Brown, '97^; 
Fannie E. Henion, '03; Isabella A. Cass, 
*os; and Miss King. After luncheon 
the annual ekction was held, resulting in 
the choice of the following officers: presi- 
dent, Mrs. Clayton R. Taylor; secretary, 
Dr. Alice Brown; chairman of the utility 
committee, Mrs. John D. Mersereau. The 
treasurer's report showed a satisfactory 
balance in bank to begin the new year. 
After the business meeting, old memories 
were revived by means of unmarked pic- 
tures cut from back numbers of The 
Ai^uMNUS, the identity of which were to 
be guessed. The pictures included Uni- 
versity Hall, members of the Faculty, foot- 
ball teams and Glee Club pictures, and 
thirty-eight out of a possible forty-eijght 
were successfully identified by Miss King, 
(with suggestions from all others present). 
AucB C. Brown, Secretary. 



SAN FRANCISCO 

The San Francisco Alumni started the 
day of the Harvard game by sending the 
following telegram to James W. Rayns- 
ford, Captain Michigan Footblall Team, 
Cambridge, Mass. 

"San Francisco Alumni want you to get 
'em, play low, fast, fight, smash that line, 
win for Michigan. 

San Francisco Alumni." 

At 11:30 A. M. the following members 
gathered at the Hof Brau Restaurant in 
the room regularly used for the Michigan 
Weekly Wednesday Luncheons, and signed 
the roll in the following order : 

C. R. Wright, ' 1 2I; L. C. Anderson. '08I; C W.

busier, V-'gi ; W. H. Shafroth, '14; L. H. 
Duschak, '04 ; Alanson Weeks, '99m ; G. Chizum, 
'14; V. H. Herbert. 

During lunch "Si" Lawrence and Ber- 
nard Fallon officiated at the megaphone and 
announced the plays as they came over the 
wire from the seat of war. Billy Shaf- 
roth, our official yell leader, contested every 
second of the time with the announcers and 
kept things moving, and between halves 
played Michigan's repertoire of old and 
new songs, with full choruses to all of 
them by the assembled company. President 
John B. Clayberg presided, an<i after the 
game was over introduced Judge W. B. 
Gilbert, '72, who strongly urged Michigan 
men to hold together by regular reunions, 
and spoke of what Portland, Oregon, was 
doing in that respect by meeting once a 
week. W. H. Barrows, '72/, followed and 
reviewed the work of Michigan Alumni in 
San Francisco and proposed plans for an 
annual dinner. Professor H. K. Bassett, 
of Columbia, gave a very clear idea of the 
plans formulated by the various alumni 
associations, for the purpose of meeting in 
San Francisco during 1915, which met with 
warm approval. 

Football players of a few years ago were 
represented by Dr. Alanson Weeks, 'ggm, 
and more recent times by "Si" Lawrence, 
of Michigan, and H. Braddock, of Penn. 
The latter revived many pleasant recollec- 
tions during his recital of hard fought 
battles between Pennsylvania and Michigan. 

The Dean of Michigan alumni in San 
Francisco, A. Everett Ball, '69, touched a 
responsive chord when the declared: "We 
young fellows have got to stick together 
and stay with the game." 

Song books supplied by the Michigan 
Union enabled all to join in the singing and 
"The Yellow and Blue" is now well es- 
tablished on the Pacific Coast. 

The day was brought to a close by the 
following wire to Captain Raynsford, 
Michigan Union, Ann Arbor, Michigan: 

**Tell your men fifty Michigan Alumni in 
San Francisco followed you play by play, 
were with you in spirit from start to finish. 
You played a splendid game, we are proud 
of you, our loyalty to Michigan is stronger 
than ever. 

San Francisco Alumni Association."

Secretary.

SIOUX CITY, lA. 

The alumni of Sioux City met on the 
evening of October 31, at 6:30, in the Com- 
mercial Club Cafe. The following were 
present : 

R. M. Dott, *84l; Kenneth G. Silliman, '12I; 
Peter Balkema, '13I; D. C Browning, '05I; Ross 
M. Coomer, 'ose; Charles M. Finley, e*oi-'o2;

A. Plank, '941, Ha warden; Henry C Feddcrsen, 
'o7-'98. r99-*oi, button; Theodore J. Drees, 'osl, 
Carroll. 

After dinner at a well decorated table, 
an<i after singing "The Yellow and the 
Blue," and giving some good U. of M.'s 
and a Locomotive or two, we read the 
Western Union report of the game play 
by play. To go with this report we had 
prepared an ei^ht foot paper chart sdiowing 
the gridiron with all the plays made in the 
game. The chart was well made, and when 
followed at the same time with the readr 
ing of the report, it was the next best thing 
to seeing the real game. As we followed 
the progress of the game, we cheered vig- 
orously when our boys were marching 
down the Harvard territory, and groaned 
convincingly when the Crimson gained. 

Following this, R. M. Dott, '84/, told us 
about the two Michigan-Harvard games in 
the early eighties that he played in. Then 
we took up the matter of organization, 
electing Mr. Dott president, Clarence A. 
Plank, '94/, vice-president, Kenneth G. Sil- 



liman, *i2l, secretary and Peter Balkema, 
*I3/, treasurer. It was voted to 'have a 
monthly dinner, the date to be decided later 
by the president and secretary. 

Dr. Ross, Dr. Lawrence and Mr. Puck- 
ett gave talks on "How I Happened to Go 
to Michigan." Mr. Plank spoke on Mich- 
igan spirit, and suggested that the families 
of members be invited to some of the 
monthly dinners because they had as much 
Michigan spirit as if they had attended the 
University. This suggestion will be fol- 
lowed out. A. J. Kolyn talked on the sub- 
ject, ''Why I went to Ann Arbor to study 
law," and Professor Masselink spoke on 
"Michigan men in South Africa and South 
African men in Michigan. 

The first monthly dinner was held on 
Thursday, November 19, at the Martin 
Hotel. Dinners will be held regularly on 
the third Thursday of every month at the 
Martin Hotel. Kenneth G. SauMAN,

EVENT AND COMMENT 



With an institution 
THE UNiVERsnvs which always aims to 
BIENNIAL REQUESTmarch with, or in ad- 
vance of, the times, 
there is usually little left in the cash 
drawer after the running expenses are 
paid to care for those less immediate, 
but none the less pressing, require- 
ments which spell progress. At least 
this is very true of the University of 
Michigan. The present rate of growth 
shown graphically on another page 
renders the annual income, from the 
mill tax, student fees and other sourc- 
es, barely sufficient for ordinary pur- 
poses. It is well known, as may be 
ascertained from easily available sta- 
tistics, that many other state universi- 
ties are receiving a much larger net 
income than does Michigan. Were the 
appropriations figured per capita for 
each student, the disparity would be 
even greater. (H But laying aside such 
comparisons, and considering merely 
the final efficiency of the University 
and its continual necessity for a reas- 
onable expansion, the total of what 
has come to be a biennial request of 
the University for an appropriation 
from the Legislature cannot seem in 
any way extravagant, though the ques- 
tion of just what is the most pressing 
need is a delicate one. Where one ap- 
propriation is made, * there are ten 
places in which the amount involved 
might be advantageously and judi- 
ciously used. Ci Four years ago it 
was the necessity for a new heating 
and lighting plant which was laid be- 



fore the Legislature, while two years 
ago a new science building, to be the 
largest building upon the Campus, and 
now in course of erection, was provid- 
ed. This year, according to the decis- 
ion of the Regents at their December 
meeting, the two projects which have 
appealed to the Board as the most in 
need of urgent action were an addi- 
tion to the General Library, together 
with an increase in the equipment, and 
a model school, designed to be a train- 
ing school and teaching laboratory un- 
der the direction of the Department of 
Education. 



No one in touch with 
AN ADomoN TO the University will 
THE LIBRARY question the need of 

the Library. In spite 
of repeated re-adjustments in the past 
few years, which have included the 
incorporation of all the old third floor, 
formerly the art gallery, into stacks 
and seminary rooms, the building is 
hopelessly overcrowded. Seminary 
rooms and reading-room accommoda- 
tions are lacking. While the Library 
aims to gather and care for all mater- 
ial which comes within its range, this 
policy is hampered very materially by 
the present lack of sufficient space. 
The books are crowded on the shelves, 
with temporary stacks blocking many 
passage-ways, and even then, there is 
a great mass of material which is stor- 
ed in other buildings and is at present 
practically unavailable. The over-

[January 



crowded lower reading room, which 
was designed for a student body one 
third its present proportions, adds 
further force to the argument. CH Ac- 
cording to its latest report, the Library 
numbers 337,417 volumes, with 15,- 
600 items added during the year 1913- 
14. This total is in truth impressively 
large, but a comparison with the libra- 
ries which some other universities find 
necessary for their work shows how 
great a room there is for further 
growth. Harvard has a library of 
1,120,236 volumes and 38,375 added 
last year. Yale has a library of 1,000,- 
000, with 37,546 added last year. Chi- 
cago has 431,544, with an increase of 
31,087 in 1913-14. Cornell has 439,- 
517, with an addition of 16,947 in the 
one year, while Wisconsin, if the State 
Historical Library housed in the same 
building be included, has a library of 
393,000. Pennsylvania has a library 
of approximately 390,000, and Prince- 
ton 380,000. With proper accommo- 
dations and a reasonable increase in 
the income, Michigan might increase 
the effectiveness of the Library to a 
degree far more than proportionate 
to the amount involved in the appro- 
priation. The actual sum involved in 
the request for this purpose has not 
been definitely fixed. 



To those who are fa- 
THE REQUEST FOR miliar with the histo- 
A MODEL SCHOOL ry of the University 

the request for a 
building to be used as a teachers' train- 
ing school, in effect a laboratory for 
the school of education, suggests the 
fact that Michigan was the first insti- 
tution in the country to establish a 
special department devoted to the sci- 
entific study of education and teaching. 
Originally a very modest undertaking, 
the Department of Education became 
under the direction of the powerful 
personalities of the late Professors 
Payne and Hinsdale a model for the 
establishment of similar schools in oth- 



er universities, and is to be regarded 
therefore as the pioneer in a significant 
development of the educational life 
of America. CH Elsewhere, however, 
the idea has now been carried further 
than at Michigan. Model schools sim- 
ilar to the one proposed have been es- 
tablished in recent years at many other 
state universities. According to sup- 
erintendents of schools in Michigan, 
who have been asking for such a 
school for many years, the graduates 
of the University who take up the pro- 
fession of teaching have been hamper- 
ed by their lack of technical training, 
to a certain degree at least, however 
well they have been prepared in their 
particular branches. Consequently 
there has been a strong and increasing 
demand for such a school as is propos- 
ed, on the part of educators through- 
out the State, including the State 
Board of Education and the normal 
schools as well, which has convinced 
the Regents that some action is neces- 
sary. CHOf importance to the people of 
the State when the question comes to a 
final consideration will be the distinc- 
tion between the work of the State's 
normal schools and that of this model 
school proposed for the University. 
The argument of those who advocate 
the establishment of this school is that 
in the last analysis the graduates of the 
normal schools do not quite fill the 
place demanded of the graduates of 
the University engaged in teaching. 
The possessor of a teacher's diploma 
from the University, as regards his 
knowledge of the higher branches, is 
competent to fill the most exacting po- 
sitions. But unless he has had train- 
ing in the normal schools or has had 
actual experience, as many have, he is, 
in the opinion of most school men, de- 
cidedly deficient in the technique of 
his profession. • This in essentials is 
the reason for the establishment of 
this model school, which it is argued 
will give the student who intends to 
become a teacher the necessary prac- 
tical knowledge.

EVENT AND COMMENT 



173 



In the decision sup- 
SUPI^EME CXMJRT porting the verdict of 
UPHOLDS LAW the Washtenaw Cir- 
cuit Court in the case 
of the People vs. Lawrence Damni, 
given by the Supreme Court of the 
State of Michigan, December 18, the 
constitutionality of the statute against 
selling liquor to a student in the Uni- 
versity was upheld. The law in ques- 
tion is an old one which has practically 
been a dead letter for many years. The 
provision, however, is sufficiently ex- 
plicit, forbidding the sale of liquor to 
a student under penalty of a $200.00 
fine or three months in jail, or both. 
CL Complaints were made against the 
defendant in the case and one other 
local saloon-keeper in October, 1913, 
as the result of the arrest of a student 
who had been celebrating unduly the 
victory of Michigan over Pennsylva- 
nia. Later two other students were 
involved. Following an investigation 
by the University authorities, the first 
student arrested was induced by his 
father, to make a full confession. This 
formed the basis of the case. (S. In the 
trial before the Circuit Court, the de- 
fendant was convicted. This convic- 
tion was unanimously confirmed in the 
recent decision of the Supreme Court. 
CL A previous prosecution of the de- 
fendant on another offense and under 
the same law had been unsuccessful, 
although the local judge, E. D. Kinne, 
'64; went as far as the court can go 
in a criminal case in his charge to the 
jury, directing them to find the de- 
fendant guilty if the facts showed that 
he had sold liquor to a student. The 
jury, however, in spite of what seemed 
the clearest proof, brought in a verdict 
of not guilty. In this second trial, 
the case for the People was represent- 
ed by the prosecuting attorney, George 
J. Burke, '07/, whose contentions were 
upheld by the Supreme Court. The 
penaky fixed upon the defendant by 
the court was a fine of $100.00. In 
the case of the other saloonkeeper, 



held in abeyance until this decision 
was reached, the fine was fixed at 
$50.00. 

This decision by the 
TEMPERANCE Supreme Court leaves 
AMONG STUDEhfrsno question in the 

matter. Henceforth 
the sale of liquor to students will be 
illegal, and a matter of decided risk to 
the ssJoon-keeper. The law has put 
a powerful weapon in the hands of 
the authorities in the regulation of a 
difficult question. Whatever practical 
difficulties arise, they will rest largely 
with the saloon-keeper, who is bound 
henceforth to be exceedingly careful 
as to whom he dispenses his wares. 
CH The country has progressed far 
enough in its consideration of the tem- 
perance problem to ensure a general 
recognition of the fact that the Uni- 
versity and the community will be bet- 
ter for this decision, enervation of 
the situation for a period of years 
leads to the conviction that the stand- 
ard of student morals is improving. 
Varsity athletes, over thirty in number, 
at a mass meeting held December 2, 
in Waterman Gymnasium took a stand 
as a body for tempenmce and clean 
living among students. CL This action 
is one sure to arouse widespread in- 
terest. Not because Varsity athletes 
are supposed to be indifferent to the 
best ideals of student life and conduct, 
but because they realized the respon- 
sibility resting with them as leaders of 
student opinion. CL To quote the re- 
port of the Daily of this meeting. 

The prevailing sentiment at last ni^t's 
meeting seemed tp be that, while conditions 
at Michigan are no worse than at any other 
university, an impression has been spread 
about the state that should be corrected. 
Dissipation after football games, betting on 
athletic contests, the use of profanity by 
members of the Varsity teams, and the in- 
discriminate use of cigarettes at athletic 
smokers, are cfhief among the evils which 
the athletes wish to correct. Every man 
present at the meeting seemed to be most 
heartily in favor of any action that would 
best aid in the correction of these evils,

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[January; 



and the committee was appointed in order 
that the aid of the Campus societies might 
be secured. The committee is made up of 
the following men: Carroll B. Haff, '15/; 
Raymond E. Flynn, '17; Howard A. Don- 
nelly, '17; and tewis C. Reimann, '17/. 

CH As a matter of fact, conditions at 
Michigan are conceded to be much 
above the average. The reason for 
this is not far to seek. Several years 
ago the fraternities, in the interest of 
good scholarship, united in an attempt 
to suppress the drink evil. Rules were 
adopted prohibiting the use of intox- 
icants in fraternity houses, and fresh- 
men were forbidden to frequent sa- 
loons. A no-treat rule was also pass- 
ed. Besides the reforms accomplish- 
ed by the fraternities, the student body 
has been signally benefitted by the 
good offices of the University Health 
Service in throwing light upon the in- 
evitable penalties that follow in the 
wake of evil practices. This has 
meant the stamping out of the social 
evil and consequent gain in physical 
and moral efficiency. It is also esti- 
mated that as a result of these sane 
endeavors in the interest of physical 
and moral health, the drink habit 
among students has decreased twenty- 
five per cent annually during the past 
tliree or four years. Dr. Howard H. 
Cummings, head of the University 
Health Service, declares that he does 
not believe that there is any other 
community in the world, with a popu- 
lation including an equal number of 
young men, that can present a cleaner 
bill of health, morally and physically, 
than can the University of Michigan. 



Lewis C. Reimann, 
AS VIEWED BY '17I, member of the 
AN ATHLETE football team, pointed 
out, in a recent com- 
munication to The Michigan Daily, 
that the public receives its false im- 
pression of student life on the occas- 
ions of football celebrations, when 
thousands of visitors throng the streets 
of Ann Arbor and assume the license 



which a "day away from home'' al- 
ways appears to inspire in the irre- 
sponsible. Moreover, there is also an 
irresponsible town element to contrib- 
ute its full share to the wrong kind of 
demonstration on these occasions. Stu- 
dents have a part in it all, but a much 
smaller part than the casual observer 
can have any means of determining. 
CH It is because a few reckless mem- 
bers of the student body make it im- 
possible for the University to disclaim 
any responsibility for instances of dis- 
orderly conduct, that Campus leaders 
have publicly denounced drinking and 
carousing. "The real Michigan spir- 
it," says Mr. Reimann, "is 5ie spirit 
of sacrifice for the University. It 
means that we should give our sup- 
port to any movement or practice that 
has as its purpose the general moral, 
athletic, and academic uplift. Any 
practice that dissipates our energies 
and lowers our efficiency can mean on- 
ly one thing — a lower standard of 
school work and athletics. CH Besides 
drinking, to quote the University 
Press Bulletin, the athletes also con- 
demn profanity, betting and the use of 
cigarettes at student gatherings. They 
propose that the need of specific re- 
forms be brought to the attention of 
all Campus organizations for their en- 
dorsement. As one of the Varsity cap- 
tains expressed it, "This is not a Y. M. 
C. A. matter, but a matter of common 
sense." It is this wholesome spirit 
that should free Michigan student life 
of irresponsible conduct, as well as 
those occasional abuses that enable an 
individual or a small group of indi- 
viduals to bring discredit upon the 
student body as a whole. 



Harvard's failure to

WITH HARVARD on her schedule next 
year will be consid- 
ered with mingled sentiments by Mich- 
igan men. In considering the whole

stood in all fairness to the Harvard 
athletic authorities that there never 
was any understanding regarding a 
second game. An official statement 
made by Mr. Fred W. Moore, Gradu- 
ate Treasurer of the Harvard Athletic 
Association, published in the Boston 
Herald Decemfber 19, gives the reason 
for Harvard's action as well as the 
correspondence in full, since it was 
felt that there had been a certain 
amount of misapprehension regarding 
Harvard's position. Mr. Moore show- 
ed that in all the correspondence con- 
cerning the scheduling of the first date 
with Harvard there was no mention 
of a second game except in one letter 
dated January 5, 1914, in which Mr. 
Bartelme stated that he was personal- 
ly opposed to the games because of the 
principle maintained at Michigan for 
years of not accepting a game from 
any college without an assurance of 
a return game at Ann Arbor. Mr. 
Bartelme stated also in this letter that 
he well knew that it was out of the 
question to expect this at that time, 
but he hoped Harvard would find it 
possible and agreeable to consider 
playing Michigan on her home ground 
at some future time. CH Nor was any 
mention made of a second contest at 
the time of the game. The first time 
the subject came up was in a personal 
interview in Boston, Nov. 23, 1914, be- 
tween Mr. Moore and Mr. Bartelme 
when Mr. Bartelme asked whether a 
return game at Ann Arbor would be 
possible, not necessarily next fall, but 
perhaps the year after. Mr. Moore 
stated that while he personally would 
like to see a Harvard team go to Ann 
Arbor if such a game would fit in with 
the plans of Harvard's coaches for the 
gradual development of a team, he had 
little hope that the faculty would au- 
thorize it. Nothing was done, even 
tentatively, about arranging a game 
next fall, and in Mr. Moore's words, 
"The impression I got from him was 
that Michigan's willingness to play 
here (Cambridge) would probably de- 



pend very largely on the possibility of 
our coming West the following year." 
(H After the meeting of Harvard's 
advisory committee, Mr. Moore wired 
as follows: 

"Apparently no possibility of Western 
trip this year or next Coaches also Vhink, 
because of green material next fall, mid- 
season game with team so physically power- 
ful as yours unwise. Personally disagree 
and regret decision but game seems impos- 
sible next year." 

Q In a return telegram, Mr. Bartelme 
expressed his surprise and disappoint- 
ment at Harvard's decision, and asked 
what reasons might be assigned for 
the action, to which Mr. Moore replied 
that the decision was final and that 
he supposed, from the previous 
conference between them, that Har- 
vard's inability to consider a return 
game would in any event make a game 
next fall undesirable from Michigan's 
standpoint. CD^ Upon being informed 
of this interview Mr. Bartdme wrote 
to Mr. Moore on December 21, say- 
ing that the statement as given out 
was "absolutely correct in every de- 
tail." He also assured Mr. Moore that 
he had not given out one word in the 
way of an interview despite state- 
ments to the contrary in the press. 
This courteous and reasonable state- 
ment of the relations between the two 
Universities seems to put a somewhat 
different face on the whole question 
at issue. 



LES AFFAIRES 



Considering the re- 
sult of this corres- 
pondence with due 
philosophy, we must 
acknowledge a proper resignation, if 
not, even, a certain satisfaction, in the 
failure to arrange for this game. This 
does not prevent our fair and square 
recognition of the fact that if the 
game had been arranged we might 
have been quite ready to see principles 
go by the board for once, or, in this 
case, twice, in view of the circumstan- 
ces. Last year Michigan had the

weakest team in years, practically all 
inexperienced men. It seemed only fit- 
ting, therefore, in view of the import- 
ance these contests between East and 
West have come to assume, that Mich- 
igan should have the oportunity to 
meet Harvard at ^ least once with a 
more representative team. But after 
all has been said the addition of a Har- 
vard game to Michigan's schedule, is 
on principle, asking too much of the 
team. The trip is a long and hard one, 
and the apparent impossibility of se- 
curing a return game does not com- 
port with what we conceive to be the 
proper dignity of our own university. 
From the point of view of good sports- 
manship we would have liked at least 
one more *'go" with Harvard but cer- 
tain very practical considerations have 
conspired against us. As an ironical 
corespondent who signs himself "Bus- 
iness" said in a recent issue of the 
Daily : 

The ever increasing importance of victory, 
to which the Harvard incident is an index, 
is but the logical outgrowth of the obvious 
trend of college athletics toward the spec- 
tacular. We find this demand greatest -where 
the process is farthest advanced. If tfhe 
crowd is to be amused, the crowd must pay, 
— and the crowd will not pay for too many 
defeats. 

This talk of salaries, gate receipts and 
million dollar amphitheatres that we are 
getting used to, in connection with college 
athletics, can only mean that we have ap- 
plied the methods and skill of commerce to 
what originally was a joyous sport. Our 
highly efficient Mr. Bartelme has been told 
by Harvard's astute Mr. Moore, that good 
business wiU not allow us the pleasure of 
witnessing a game between the two teams 
they represent. We may well be sorry. 
The pleasure that we might have gained 
from witnessing such a contest is great. 
But we can only compliment Mr. Moore 
and his employers for the good judgment 
they have shown in looking after their own 
interests. 

Ct In other words, Harvard is better 
off on her side of the fence and Mich- 
igan on hers. That seems to be the 
situation in a nutshell. 



What constitutes a 
BUiLD!NGS,FACUL-university? The 
TIES OR STUDENTSquestion is perhaps 

an academic one, but 
there is a certain delicacy in the point 
which will have interest for speculative 
minds. Nowadays when a state, or 
a denomination, or a community, wish- 
es to establish a place where the de- 
vious paths of higher learning may be 
pursued, it first creates the setting, 
buildings, laboratories, recitation halls ; 
then it brings together a body of men 
to teach, and calls them deans, profes- 
sors and instructors. Lastly come the 
students. Most of us perhaps visual- 
ize a university by its physical setting, 
the buildings and laboratories; per- 
haps by its officers and governing 
body, accepting the most obvious as 
the real embodiment. This, however, 
is far from the interpretation of the 
average member of the faculty, who 
perhaps would insist, with a certain 
historical justification, that the facul- 
ties of the various schools make the 
university. CH But certain students 
have been heard of late who insisted 
that they who come to learn constitute 
the university. Probably in this day of 
complex life, unknown in past centu- 
ries, all are right. The student certain- 
ly has reason in history for his view. 
The followers of Abelard in the Paris 
of eight hundred years ago, moving 
from church-porch to cloister on the 
left bank, were the university. If 
their teachers "professed" successfully 
they were listened to, however they 
chose to speak. Otherwise the "uni- 
versity" moved to other precincts. The 
faculty as a distinct and ordered body 
was a later development. To consider 
the university under the guise of its 
place and buildings has least excuse. 
Has not catholic Louvain, in part at 
least, moved to protestant Oxford?

EVENT AND COMMENT 



177 



Acknowledging that 
CLOTHING A the essence of a uni- 
UNIVERSITY versity does not lie in 
its campus or its 
buildings, there is no one, however, 
who will deny their influence. In a 
well ordered and dignified campus 
where provision for the future is con- 
sidered, the architectural beauty of 
each separate building lends a charm 
in the academic perspectives, which is 
lacking in those universities where 
buildings have been provided as they 
were necessary. CH A certain reserve of 
good nature, therefore, is a valuable 
asset for Michigan men when the ques- 
tion of college buildings is brought up 
in any gathering of college men. 
Friendly critics all, nevertheless our 
friends have a way of expressing as- 
tonishment at a certain lack of im- 
pressiveness in our academic surround- 
ings. Our only defense is a compari- 
son to Topsy's development, and a 
certain invidious satisfaction in a com- 
parison with institutions which have 
sprung "full armed," with their quota 
of beautiful and well ordered collegi- 
ate gothic or renaissance halls. We 
can point, too, to other universities of 
highest standing whose architectural 
garb lacks the dignity of any careful 
plan of development, however efficient 
the individual units may be. CH True, 
there are disadvantages in a scheme 
too well considered. In the laboratory 
buildings of one university, where Tu- 
dor gothic is the prevailing style, only 
ordinary windows were permitted, 
else the balance of the scheme would 
be impaired. It made little difference 
whether the efficacy of the building as 
a laboratory was ruined. How far 
Michigan has freed itself from such an 
incubus may be judged from the plans 
for the new laboratories of the Natur- 
al Science Building, which in essen- 
tials is practically all windows. It has 
also been placed in accordance with the 
general scheme for the erection of 
buildings which was devised a few 
years ago, and which, while not offi- 



cially adopted, has governed the situ- 
ation of our most recent buildings. 
CH We feel, however, that a more com- 
prehensive and far-reaching scheme is 
necessary. Elsewhere, commissions of 
the ablest architects in the country 
have considered the development of 
different universities for all time. Why 
not here? With a vision prophetic 
enough, and perhaps a bit of ruthless 
power, much might be accomplished 
even now for our Campus at no ex- 
cessive expense, and the essentials of 
a scheme be laid down. What we need 
now is a plan for the future. Perhaps 
if we had had one, the two new dormi- 
tories for women, which, while not or- 
ganically part of the University, should 
certainly have entered into the 
scheme, might have been brought to 
harmonize. They are two beautiful 
buildings, and are sure to be orna- 
ments to the Campus surroundings, 
but nevertheless they add two entire- 
ly new architectural notes. Had there 
been something definite placed before 
the architects of these buildings as 
the ideal of the University for the fu- 
ture, the designers might have been 
very glad to bring their conceptions 
into closer correspondence with it. 



There is a perpetual 
A VACATION lack of harmony be- 
READjusTED tween the require- 
ments of the Univer- 
sity in the matter of days and hours 
devoted to the imparting of knowledge 
to supposedly eager learners, and stu- 
dent sentiment regarding vacations. 
One would think, sometimes, that a 
year all vacations and a week all end, 
would be an ideal solution in the minds 
of many. But we probably do them 
injustice. This year, at any rate, the 
dates of the Christmas vacation fell 
with particular severity upon those 
whose homes are at a distance. 
Student sentiment regarding the mat- 
ter was crystallized in the following 
resolution, presented by the Student

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[January 



Council to the President and to the 
Senate Council: 

'*To the President and Senate Council of 

the University of Michigan. 

"WhereaSf the holiday vacation is schcd^ 
uled to begin the evening of December 22, 
and 

"Whereas, this date is inconvenient for 
die student body, making it difficult, if not 
impossible, for those living at a distance to 
reach their homes in time for Christmas, 
therefore 

"Resolved, that we, the Student Council 
of the University of (Michigan, in behalf o^ 
the student body, respectfully request the 
President and Senate Council that the vaca- 
tion begin the evening of December 18, and 
end the morning of January 5. Signed, 
"Th« Student Council." 

(Si. Accompanying this resolution was 
a letter stating that the primary pur- 
pose of the agitation was not to pro- 
cure a longer vacation, but to provide 
a more suitable arrangement for stu- 
dents living at a distance who would 
not be able to reach their homes until 
the night before Christmas or Christ- 
mas Day. Under such conditions many 
students did not feel justified in re- 
turning to their homes. Great dis- 
cussion followed and weighty editori- 
als in The Daily. (D; At last the Sen- 
ate met, to the effect that the Christ- 
mas vacation was set to begin Satur- 
day noon, December 19, a change of 
one day from December 18. The form 
of the petition was denied, but the sub- 
stance was granted, to the great satis- 
faction of everyone. Residents of the 
fourth and fifth parcel post zones were 
permitted to eat Christmas pie with a 
conscience intact, and with no dread of 
consequences of that most heinous of 
all undergraduate crimes — a "bolt" on 
the day before vacation. 



Similarly happy re- 
REINSTATING sults were consequent 
THE juhaoR HOP upon another petition 
on the part of the stu- 
dent body to the Senate Council, which 
was later referred to the University 
Senate. This was no less than the re- 



establishment of the Junior Hop in its 
ancient glory. Whatever were the 
reasons for its abandonment two years 
ago, and there were charges of extrav- 
agance in costume, entertainment and 
dancing in the press which perhaps 
justified the action, the new Hop is 
to be diflferent. At least it is to be 
conducted under diflferent auspices. 
<! The agitation for its reinstatement 
was undertaken by the junior class in 
the Engineering Department at a class 
meeting held November 19. A general 
petition was drawn up, which was 
signed by twenty-seven class presi- 
dents, and presented to the Senate 
Council at a special meeting on De- 
cember 7. Embodied in this petition, 
were the following rules for the con- 
duct of the Hop : 

1. The hop shall be a dance given by the 
junior classes of the University of Mich- 
igan, Friday evening, in February, between 
semesters. 

2. The management of the hop s^hall 
rest in a committee representing the junior 
classes. 

3. The members of the committee shall 
be elected in regularly called class-meet- 
ings. 

4. The dance shall be formal. 

5. The price per ticket shall not exceed 
$5.00. 

6. It s'hall be a democratic whole-Uni- 
versity function, which fact shall be made 
plain through class meetings and advertis- 
ing. 

7. There s/hall be no booths or decora- 
tions, except such as represent the Univer- 
sity, or the junior classes. 

8. The floor committee shall be under 
the orders of the chaperones, and shall be 
directly responsible for the conduct of the 
dancers. 

9. No spectators shall be allowed. 

10. House parties shall commence not 
earlier than Friday morning, and end not 
later than Sunday afternoon. 

These rules are to be considered as a 
general working plan, and subject to your 
amendment. Further details as to com- 
mittee, music, "features," decorations, etc., 
rfiall be settled by the senate committee on 
student affairs. 

CH This petition was duly granted at a 
Senate meeting held one week later. 
The decision will be received with 
satisfaction by many alumni, whose

memories of college life center about 
this annual function. While The 
A1.UMNUS does not believe that the 
criticism directed against the Hop of 
the past was to any great extent jus- 
tified, it probably was true that under 
the old system of management, the 
Hop had become somewhat unwieldy 
in its organization and was probably 
not sufficiently representative of the 
student body. Whether the new sys- 
tem will solve the question will prob- 
ably depend upon the extent of the 
support given by the fraternities un- 
der the changed conditions. There is 
surely a place in undergraduate life 
for such a traditionally collegiate 
function. 



Echoes of a discus- 
RIFLE PRACTICE sion which has come 
ASAMiNORSPORTDf late to have a na- 
tional interest may be 
found in the fact that nearly a hundred 
men were present at a meeting in Wa- 
terman Gymnasium called December 2 
for the purpose of organizing a Michi- 
gan Rifle Club. Temporary officers, 
to serve until the organization is com- 
pleted, were elected as follows : Harry 
A. Moul, eng. spec, Philadelphia, Pa., 
president; Intra-mural Director Floyd 
A. Rowe, '08^, secretary; H. T. Gis- 
bome, '16, Montpelier, Vt, treasurer; 
and Ralph W. Hussey, '15, Princeton, 
m., captain. Director Rowe outlined 
the requirements that must be fulfilled 
before the Michigan club could become 
a member of the National Rifle Asso- 
ciation of the United States. The 
first step was taken towards filling 
these requirements when officers were 
elected, and there now remains the ne- 
cessity of securing a bondsman for the 
organization and a suitable place for 
stacking rifles. Membership in the 
national association will secure for 
Michigan marksmen the use of the 
government rifle ranges, and in addi- 
tion, the government, upon petition 
from the Governor of the State, will 



furnish one rifle for every five mem- 
bers of the club, while for every mem- 
ber it will supply 120 rounds of am- 
munition a year. 



EVENT IN BRIEF 

Dr. Angell celebrated his 86th birth- 
day on January 7, 1915. He re- 
ceived many friends who congratu- 
lated him on his continued good 
health. 

The November 15 issue of "Ameri- 
can Lawn Tennis," the official organ 
of the American National Lawn Ten- 
nis Association, contained an article 
on lawn tennis at the University of 
Michigan, testifying to the fact that 
tennis is a sport that is attracting more 
and more attention at the University. 

The Ann Arbor Civic Association 
tendered a dinner to the football squad 
on Monday evening, December 7, in 
the Armory. Regent Junius E. Beal 
presided as toastmaster at the banquet, 
calling upon Professor Filibert Roth, 
of the Forestry Department; Profes- 
sor Ralph W. Aigler, of the Law De- 
partment; Captain Raynsford and 
Captain-elect Cochran for speeches. 

As a departure in methods of keep- 
ing the alumni in touch with the Uni- 
versity, "Campus News Notes," pub- 
lished as one of the regular University 
Bulletins under the direction of the 
Michigan Union, was issued on De- 
cember 17. Edward W. Haislip, '14/, 
of Kalamazoo, was editor of the pub- 
lication. Enough copies of the book- 
let were printed to provide one for 
every alumnus and every student. In 
the booklet every branch of Campus 
activity that might be of interest to 
the alumni is given space, including a 
resume of the football season just past, 
information regarding the diflFerent ac- 
tivities of the Michigan Union, the Y. 
M. C. A. Campaign, and the Opera as 
well as many items of general interest.

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[January 



Senator Robert M. La FoUette, of 
Wisconsin, spoke before an audience 
of 3,500 in Hill auditorium on Mon- 
day evening, December 7. The first 
part of the program was taken up with 
a lecture on "Hamlet," and later he 
told the "Story of Wisconsin." 

In memory of Jane Owen Turner, 
'96-'97, whose death occurred August 
29, 1904, Mary M. Turner, '92, of De- 
troit, has given the sum of $300 for the 
estaUishment of a loan fund for Uni- 
versity women. The fund will be ad- 
ministered as the Jane Turner Loan 
Fund by a committee consisting of 
President Hutchins, Dean Myra B. 
Jordan and Miss Turner. It will be 
available at the opening of the second 
semester of the present year. 

As the sixth annual play of the Ora- 
torical Association, Goldoni's "A Cur- 
ious Mishap" was presented on the ev- 
enings of December 4 and 5 in Uni- 
versity Hall. Professor R. D. T. Hol- 
lister, of the Department of Oratory, 
acted as director of the production. 
Principal parts were taken by Walker 
Peddicord, '14, '16/; Frances L. Hic- 
kok, '15, Louis Eich, '12, instructor in 
Oratory; Leslie W. Lisle, 14, '17/; 
Bess Baker, '15; Ethyl M. Fox, '15; 
and Earl A. Ross, '15. 

On December 10, a week before 
starting on their eastern trip, the Glee 
and Mandolin Clubs of the University 
gave a well attended concert in Hill 
Auditorium. The feature of the pro- 
gram was the appearance of Durward 
Grinstead, '14, *i6l, of Louisville, Ky., 
and Harold L. Nutting, '13, '15/, Mc- 
Connelsville, Ohio, in a skit entitled 
"When Salome Danced before the 
King." "That Michigan Band," the 
marching song recently composed by 
Charles D. Kountz, '02/, sung by the 
Glee Club, was received with interest. 
All royalties derived from the sale of 
the song will be turned over to the 
Band by Mr. Kountz. 



A number of improvements have 
been made within the last few months 
at the University Hospital. The Phar- 
macy has been moved into new and 
spacious quarters in the Surgical 
Building, the old quarters having been 
long since outgrown. In the Medical 
Ward the laboratories have been re- 
modeled and equipped with the most 
modem apparatus, while a new system 
of lockers has been instituted for stu- 
dents working in the Hospital. 

Forty-one members of the Glee and 
Mandolin Clubs of the University 
were taken on the annual trip during 
the Christmas vacation. Concerts 
were given in Toledo, Ohio, on De- 
cember 19; Cincinnati, December 21; 
Youngstown, Ohio, December 22 ; and 
in Rochester, N. Y., on December 23. 
At Rochester the clubs disbanded until 
January 2, when they gave a joint con- 
cert with the Harvard Glee Cliib at the 
Hotel Pontchartrain in Detroit. Pro- 
fessor J. A. C. Hildner, of the German 
Department, accompanied the clubs as 
faculty representative. 

A Campus Fire Department has 
been recently organized to co-operate 
with the Ann Arbor fire department in 
case of fire on the Campus. It is made 
up of employes of the University, 
chiefly from the Buildings and 
Grounds Department. The chief of 
the department is the Superintendent 
of Buildings and Grounds, and under 
him are five captains and ten vice-cap- 
tains. Fire drills are held from time 
to time without notice to the employes. 
The fire alarm is sounded by long 
blasts of the siren in the Power House, 
the location of the fire being signaled 
by the blasts of the whistle. A salvage 
squad has been formed, in addition to 
the firemen, whose duty it is to re- 
move from the burning building such 
articles as would be damaged by fire 
and water. Their first duty, however, 
is to remove from the building all ex- 
plosives such as ether and gasoline.

Preparations for the meeting of the 
Newspaper Institute, composed of all 
newspaper men in the State of Wash- 
ington, which is to be held in a short 
time at Seattle, are in the entire charge 
of two Michigan graduates, Francis 
G. Kane, '08, and Lee A White, '10, 
A.M. '11, who are connected with the 
Department of Journalism of the Uni- 
versity of Washington. The holding 
of such a meeting is a comparatively 
new idea in journalism, and its results 
will be closely watched by members of 
the Rhetoric Faculty of the University 
who are interested in the work. 

At their December meeting, the Re- 
gents of the University were informed 
by the Librarian of the University 
that the Library had received a valua- 
ble gift from the American Bible So- 
ciety, consisting of 105 volumes rep- 
resenting translations of the complete 
Bible or parts thereof intd eighfy-thfee 
different languages. Of four of these 
languages the University has hitherto 
had no specimens ip the Library. 
Many of them will be of use to for- 
eign students to whonj these languages 
are native tongues. Others will be of 
special value to the professors in lin- 
guistics and comparative philology. 
Professor Meader was especially glad 
to obtain specimens of certain West 
African dialects, while Professor San- 
ders was pleased to have specimens of 
Syriac. 

During the coming season, the Dra- 
ma League of Ann Arbor is planning 
to bring to the city three plays of na- 
tional repute. One of these will be 
"The Yellow Jacket," a play given in 
the Chinese style with unique and 
elaborate Oriental settings, which has 
met with success wherever it has been 
shown. While the other plays have 
not yet been definitely decided upon, 
Margaret Anglin in "Lady Winde- 
mere's Fan" will be presented together 
with Bertha Kalich in a new play ; or 
the "Misleading Lady," of which Paul 



B. Dickey, 'o2-'o3, 'os-'o6, is one of the 
authors. An active campaign to raise 
the guarantees for these performan- 
ces has been begun by the League, 
and an effort is being made to in- 
crease the membership. After the 
first of the year a series of lectures 
will be given under the auspices of the 
League on subjects dealing with dra- 
matics. 

The program of the Oratorical As- 
sociation for 1914-15 is as follows: 
Professor T. C. Trueblood, who ap- 
peared in "Ingomar," October 22 ; the

THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS 



[January 



On the evening of November 30, 
Dr. Reuben Peterson, of the Universi- 
ty Hospital staff, spoke before more 
than fifty health service representa- 
tives from the various fraternities, sor- 
orities and house clubs on the subject 
"Contagious Diseases and Their Re- 
lation to Fraternity Houses." In the 
course of his lecture Dr. Peterson 
traced briefly the advance in the use 
of asepsis and antisepsis in surgery, 
and applied these principles to com- 
mon use in the treatment of diseases 
of a contagious nature. He then gave 
instances of how contagion had spread 
in the past by carelessness in coming 
in contact with infected persons, and 
advocated more sanitary measures in 
the various groups, the use of a com- 
mon napkin coming in for especial 
criticism. 



Mr. Frank F. Reed, '80, and Mr. 
John M. Zane, '84, of the Chicago bar, 
have presented to the Department of 
Law a collection of etchings and en- 
gravings of prominent jurists of this 
country and England. The collection 
includes portraits of the following 
men : Chief Justice White, Alexander 
Hamilton, James Kent, Chief Justice 
Taney, Daniel Webster, Thomas Jef- 
ferson, Abraham Lincoln, Sir William 
Blackstone, Lord CoUeridge, Lord 
Ashburton, Edmund Burke, Lord 
Campbell, Sir Edward Coke, Lord 
Brougham and Lord EUenborough. 
They have been framed and are hang- 
ing in the lecture rooms of the Law 
Building. Both Mr. Reed and Mr. 
Zane are non-resident lecturers of the 
Law Department.

GROWTH IN ATTENDANCE 



183 



THE GROWTH IN ATTENDANCE AT THE UNIVERSITY 

The increase in attendance at the University of Michigan is shown 
graphically in the two following diagrams. These emphasize particularly 
the remarkable increase in attendance of the last ten years, during which 
the registration has increased almost 50 per cent, or from 4136 to 6500 (est). 

There are a number of interesting studies of cause and effect which 
might be worked out from the various yearly fluctuations which these dia- 
grams show. A marked increase in attendance as the result of a return to 
normal conditions in the period following the war is shown in the curve 
from '66 to '68, with a succeeding falling-off the following three years. A 
gradually increasing enrolment up to 1872 was sharply interrupted during 
the great panic of the following year. 

The sudden falling-off in '85 and the following years was probably the 
result of the addition of a third year to the Medical course, which went 
into effect in 1888, and the lengthening of the term by the Law School in

1885. Again, the addition of a fourth year to the Medical course in 1890 
and a third year in the Law School in 1895 is shown in the curve for the 
years immediately preceding. The falling off in 191 1 is possibly due to the 
increased requirements in the Medical Department. There has also been a 
decided falling-off in the Law Department for the past two years for a sim- 
ilar cause, but the general increase in the other departments has been so 
marked that there is no decided effect in the curve. 

The growth of the Summer School, shown in the accompan3ring curve, 
is also of interest. The fluctuations since it was established in 1892 are on 
the whole more marked than in the curve for general enrolment, but the 
tendency has been decidedly upward, with only one period of positive de- 
cline during 1910 and 1912. The immediate reasons for these changes are 
more difficult to ascertain, though the recent reorganization of the Summer 
School and enrolling the students in all departments under the one Summer 
School administration is shown plainly in the sharp upward curve of the 
last three years. 

It is of interest to note that the attendance at the University has quad- 
rupled since 1888, tripled since 1890, and doubled since 1899-1900, — or in 
just fifteen years. 



A CAMPAIGN FOR BETTER GYMNASIUM FACILITIES 

To many alumni who remember the days before a gymnasium was 
considered a necessary part of academic equipment, the present agitation 
on the part of the students through The Daily and a series of petitions to the 
Regents for an increase in the size and equipment of Waterman Gymnasium, 
will perhaps be a surprise. Perhaps the inadequacy of the present

I9IS] BETTER GYMNASIUM FACIUTIES 185 

quarters will be an even greater shock to the alumni of not so many years 
back who remember how more than adequate Waterman Gymnasium seemed 
in the first years of its usefubiess. As is true in almost every branch of 
the University's activities, the whole question is brought about and condi- 
tioned by the fact that the number of students has more than doubled in 
fifteen years. 

Naturally a gymnasium which was adequate then can hardly be so 
under the new conditions. The enormous freshman gym classes this winter, 
200 at a time, the many class teams, the different tournaments and clubs for 
minor indoor sports, to say nothing of the Varsity athletes at work, bring 
about a congestion which is a handicap upon physical training and athletics 
at the University. 

Basketball, the chief indoor class sport, is now restricted to night prac- 
tice. On the four evenings of the week when there are no freshman gymna- 
sium classes, the class athletes are allowed to use the main floor, but there 
are so many basketball teams that each one is given but two twenty minute 
periods a week for practice. The same unsatisfactory accommodations are 
found for the minor sports. Wrestling and fencing are restricted to the 
small rooms, each group having three days a week available. The room de- 
voted to boxing is probably the most in use of any of this class of sports, 
although at all available hours the handball courts are sure to be over- 
crowded. 

Indoor track sports are also seriously hampered, the gymnasium classes 
restricting the use of the field men in training to a few hours in the late after- 
noon. This inability of the track men to obtain sufficient early practice 
is perhaps more serious than the inconvenience arising from the fact that 
the distance for both dashes and longer runs is shorter than in most of the 
gymnasiums in which the men compete elsewhere. The space available 
for dashes is only thirty-five yards, with forty yards for the hurdles, an 
average of ten yards shorter than in many other gymnasiums. The run- 
ning track is also a fourteen lap course, as against the ten and twelve yard 
indoor ovals of Michigan's principal rivals. 

The lack of practicable exits for a large crowd has necessitated the limit- 
ation of spectators at indoor track meets to 500, and interest in indoor track 
work has therefore declined correspondingly. 

Even more serious, perhaps, is the crowded condition and inadequate 
bathing facilities provided for the hundreds of students who use the gym- 
nasium. As was pointed out by The Daily, there are only twenty-four show- 
er baths, most of which have seen service for the two decades since the 
gymnasium was erected. At that time they were probably able to accommo- 
date the students using the gymnasium. Now they are absolutely inadequate 
for the 1,950 lockers, to say nothing of their insanitary condition. In many 
of the freshman classes students are forced to leave the gymnasium without 
bathing, owing to the late hour at which some of the classes are dismissed. 

The remedy is either an addition to the present building or an entirely 
new gymnasiimi. There seems no possible relief in the present building,

i86 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [January 

^ as practically every inch of space is used. The remedy suggested last year 

j by the Athletic Board in Control is the enlargement of the gymnasium itself. 

, The Daily, in an article on the general situation, suggests the extension of the 

! main floor fifty feet on both the west and east ends, carrying the structure on 

the south even with the director's office. This would give convenient room 

for basketball courts on the main floor, a better track on the balcony, athletic 

offices on the first floor and better accommodations on the second floor for 

boxing, wrestling and fencing. It would also provide for much needed 

bathing and locker facilities in the basement. 

In support of the argument for increased facilities for athletic training. 
Dr. Vaughan, in a statement quoted in The Daily, expressed his disapproval 
ol the present day methods of athletic training, and advocated a system 
which would give to every student in the University a r^^lar prescribed 
course of . outdoor training throughout the year. He believes that the 
present day system of college gymnasiums is wrong. "In this University 
each student pays a fee of five dollars for athletic training, and it is pre- 
cisely the average student, the one who should be reached, who does not 
derive much benefit from his fee." Dr. Vaughan therefore believes that 
there should be regular courses in outdoor athletics in which credit should 
be given towards graduation in the same way that it is given for mathematics 
or languages. Included in this perhaps would be walking, running, boxing, 
swimming, following an examination into what each student needs. There is 
not a time of the year when some sort of athletics would not be possible, 
no matter whether it stormed or not. 

As the principal means to the ultimate accomplishment of this propa- 
ganda of outdoor athletics the year round, Dr. Vaughan suggested the erec- 
tion of a large building which he termed a "barracks" on Ferry Field, which 
should contain lockers, shower baths and a swimming pool. Such a building, 
which would be comparatively inexpensive, would act as a center for these 
outdoor sports. 
f As the result of the agitation for better gymnasium facilities, the fol- 
' lowing petition, signed by over a thousand students, was presented to the 
Regents at their last meeting : 

' "To the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan : 

We, the undersigned students of the University of Michigan, most respectfully 
petition yoa to take steps to procure increased gymnasium facilities." 

This petition was also signed by practically all of the undergraduate 
Campus societies. A similar resolution was passed by the Directors of the 
"M" Club. The matter was presented to the Regents at their December 
meeting. They referred the whole question to the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee for investigation and report. 

THE PRESENT ENROLMENT IN AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES 

Although the effects of the war and the financial stringency particu- 
larly noticeable during the past month might be supposed to have an ad- 
verse effect upon attendance at American universities, the reverse has been

true. A general resume of the early registration in a large number of leading 
universities by Henry T. Claus, published in The Boston Transcript for 
November 11, shows an increased attendance in most American universi- 
ties. In part he ascribes this to the fact that many students who would 
have normally gone to Europe for training have enrolled this year in Amer- 
ican universities and colleges. Particularly is this true of the graduate 
schools of our higher institutions, where men who had planned to obtain a 
professional education abroad have perforce registered in large numbers in 
American schools. Likewise, many Amercians who had already spent a 
year in Paris or Berlin have returned to complete their work at home. 
There is also a certain percentage of European students, probably 
not large, however, who have come to America as the only great center 
of higher education where they might pursue their work in peace. Dis- 
cussing certain factors shown by the comparison of the figures for the past 
two years, Mr. Claus says: 

Of more than sixty representative American universities and colleges, only nine 
show a smaller enrolment for 1914-15 than for 1913-14. And in nearly every icistancc 
there is some substantial reason for the decrease. At least two other interesting de- 
ductions may be drawn from the reports returned by the various institutions. It is 
apparent, for example, tfcat the requirements for admission to the professional schools 
are gradually becoming standardized and that, as far as the undlergradute college is 
concerned, were steadily, even rapidly, moving toward an equalization of educational 
opportunities. With the opening of this year half a dozen universities — mostly located 
in the West — have put their law or medical schools on a higher plane. Hereafter 
they will demand at least one year of college work as a prerequisite for entrance to 
the professional departments. How far the ruling of the American Medical Associa- 
tion has been a factor in this academic development is not indicated, but it is a fact 
that the society's refusal to recognize as first-class schools those which were on the 
^ame admission level with the undergraduate college has in the past few years stirred 
many colleges to immediate action. It oug^t to be said, liowcver, that the general 
tendency is in the direction of putting all strictly professional or vocational schools 05 
a graduate basis. Eventually all of our leading universities would have voluntarily 
taken this step. Pressure by outside agencies has only hastened the procedure. 

The other conspicuous development in higher learning is quite as much economic 
as educational. Comparatively speaking, the college is still for the few but not to the 
extent that was true a decade ago. There seems to be a greater and greater apprecia- 
tion of the fact that the ability to pass a stiff examination in certain rigidly fixed high 
school subjects does not necessarily label a man as fitted for college. The conviction is 
growing that it is possible to do constructive thinking in shop-work as well as in Latin 
or in geometry. Tliat this conviction has been so late in coming is due largely to a fear 
of decreasing the standards of admission to college. Just as soon as it was discovered 
that the process was a broadening and not a lowering one a revamping of requirements 
was begun. Today, nearly every college is wrestling with the problem of opening its 
doors wider, of giving the same academic opportunity to the boy naturally educated in 
the public high school as to the boy educated in the special fitting school. 

Harvard, Boston University, Brown and Tufts are all considerably larger Aan 
in 1913-14. Yale's gain in enrolment is slight, but it's a gain and the university is 
satisfied Columbia, counting the summer session, Barnard College and other afl&liated 
schools, bas passed the 10,000 mark and is today the world''s largest university. Cali- 
fornia, Illinois, Cornell, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York University and Wisconsin 
are all rapidly becoming goodsized towns in themselves. The registration figures of the 
-various colleges and universities for this year and last are given below. Unfortunately 
the same ground is not covered in all cases. Different institutions have different 
methods of computing registration. The statistics :

As is remarked above, the disparity in the figures for certain univer- 
sities is due to the different methods of computing registrations, as well 
as to the disproportionately large summer schools in some institutions such 
as Columbia where the total is increased enormously by the 5,590 enrolled 
in the summer school last year. The enrolment in the college at Colum- 
bia last year was 905, with 677 at Barnard College. Likewise Califor- 
nia, which is showed to have an extraordinarily large number enrolled, 
includes the summer session, which was attended by 3,179 students. Mich- 
igan's summer session enrolment last year was 1,549. Michigan still has 
probably the largest number of students upon the one campus during the 
academic year of any university in the country. Omitting the summer ses- 
sion Michigan stands fourth in order, according to figures given in Science 
for December 25, with Columbia (6,752), Pennsylvania (5,736), and Cali- 
fornia (5,614) leading. 

MICHIGAN AT THE MEETINGS OF LEARNED AND SCIENTIFIC 
SOCIETIES 

The University was well represented at the meetings of the various 
learned and scientific societies which were held as usual during the holidays,

192 THE MICHIGAN ALUMNUS [January 

A ONE PER CENT CLUB 

From the November Gothamite of the University of Michigan Club 
of New York, we reprint the following outline of a plan which has been 
presented to the President of the General Alumni Association with a 
request that it be submitted to the Alumni Advisory Council for con- 
sideration in the near future and report at the Annual Alumni Meeting next 
June. 

At the annual meeting of the Club, a matter was presented which 
promises much for the University. It concerns the formation of a One Per 
Cent Club of Michigan men. The avowed purpose is to assist the Univer- 
sity, in a financial way, by the creation of a constant and cumulative fund. 
This is to be accomplished by its members providing in their wills that one 
per cent, of their estates, or an estimated equivalent, shall go to the Uni- 
versity. The original idea was conceived by Rolla L. Bigelow, '05^, of New 
York. 

By formal action at the last meeting the officers of the Club were di- 
rected to refer the entire matter, as a suggestion from the University of 
Michigan Club of New York, to the President of the General Altunni 
Association, with the request that it be brought to the attention of the 
Alumni Advisory Council for its consideration and action. This idea 
appears to be fundamentally sound and the indications are that it will 
do much, not only for Michigan, but for the sons of Michigan. 

The tentative plan of the Committee and the resolutions are reprinted 
here in full : 

Tentative Plan to Develop a Permanent Endowment for the 
University op Michigan. 

First : Form an honorary society, club or association 

Second: Name it "The One Percenters." 

Third: Make equality of opportunity to do for the University the 
central motive of the club. 

Note: Create the one place, the one plan, whereby a man can do 
in proportion to what he has as much toward the perpetuation of his ideals 
as any other man can do. Make the plan equally fair to all so that no 
man shall gain in memory more than another. 

Fourth: Membership to be restricted to matriculates of the Uni- 
versity. 

Fifth: The members to provide in their wills that one per cent, of 
their estates shall go, at their death, to the University of Michigan. 

Note: This method gives to every alumnus of the University the 
chance to subscribe equally with every other alumnus towards creating 
this endowment. 

Sixth: Limit the amount any man can give, through the club, to 
one per cent. 

Note: Whatever a man's means, he gives one per cent, and no more. 
Many men would like to give their one per cent, as a token, not as a

measure of the part the University has played in their lives. The man 
of small estate would know that by giving his one per cent., his name 
takes its place upon the' Roll of Honor beside that of the man whose es- 
tate is one hundred times as much. 

Seyenth: Make it a part of the club constitution that the amount 
of any one bequest should never be made public. 

Note. Many Alumni would like to give their one per cent, but if 
at the same time they must publish their financial condition to the whole 
alumni list it might mitigate against the idea. 

Eighth: It is suggested that the management be vested in a com- 
mittee of possibly nine members. 

Note: (a) Three to be selected from the Board of Regents, (b) 
Three to be selected from the Faculty, (c) Three to be selected from 
the Alumni. 

Ninth : The disposition and handling of the funds can be left to 
the discretion of the Board or it may be specified in a constitution in wha/ 
mater the funds are to be used. 

Note: It might be well, for instance, to stipulate at the inception 
that none of the club's funds shall be used for building or equipment ; but 
shall be devoted to research work, particularly to the salaries of pro- 
fessors, in order that the financial means might be provided whereby the best 
minds of the world could pursue, through the University of Michigan, 
such lines of effort as will place our University at the head of the uni- 
versities of the world. 

Tenth : The investment of funds should be carefully guarded from 
the beginning. 

Note: It is suggested that the funds be invested only in the direct 
obligations of Municipalities and States of the United States, or the United 
States Government itself, and further, that the obligations of such muni- 
cipalities must meet the legal requirements of the Savings Bank laws of 
New York State; and that all securities must be bought directly from 
the municipalities at public sales, and no securities purchased through 
bankers, brokers or other agents. 

Eleventh: It is hoped to so frame this organization that it will 
appeal to every local alumnus. 

Note: While he is alive, while his funds and resources are in active 
use, while he is still grappling with the uncertainties of life, and feels he 
might be called upon at any time for the money he might hesitate to give. 
But when his life is finished, and he has no further use for this world's 
goods, he bequeathes one per cent, of his estate, and one per cent, only, t<> 
the perpetuation for other men of what was probably the largest artificial 
factor in his own existence. This is not a measure of value, it is simply 
an expression of his appreciation of the part the University has played 
in his life. His natural heirs should have no cause for complaint. One 
per cent, from a bequest should not affect any heir. The amount is too 
small to affect the estate ; it is too small to affect any heir. It is given at 
a time when the man who has earned and acquired it has no further use

for it. It would have been received by those who, through their own efforts^ 
have no claim upon it, and does not deprive them of anything they ever 
owned. 

The following is the resolution adopted: 

Whereas the Committee appointed by the Board of Governors to con- 
sider the one per cent, plan recommends that the proposal for the formation, 
of a Club, Society or Association to be known as the "One Percenters,''' 
or under some other name, and composed of alumni who agree to pro- 
vide in their wills that one per cent, of their estates, or an amount esti- 
mated by them to be the equivalent to one per cent, of their estates, shall pass- 
to the University of Michigan, be referred to the Alumni Advisory Council 
of the General Alumni Association of the University, for its consider- 
ation and action. 

Be It Further Resolved that the Officers of the Club be directed 
to communicate with and refer the entire subject, as a suggestion from the 
University of Michigan Club of New York, to the President of the GeneraF 
Alumni Association with the request that it be brought to the attention of 
the Alumni Advisory Council, for its consideration and action. 



THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN CLUB 

OF TOLEDO 

A Toledo Association of the University of Michigan Alumni was or- 
ganized in Toledo in 1892 with Henry W. Ashley, '79, as president, and 
Fordyce Belford, '91/, secretary. Though the records of the old organ- 
ization have been mislaid, it appears that Dr. Willard J. Stone, '99, *oiw^ 
William Sanger, '98, Hon. U. Grant Denman, '94/^ together with the pres- 
ident and secretary named above constituted the officers of the Association 
up to the present organization in January, 1913. The old organizatior> 
was active for a number of years, and did much to stimulate and centralize 
the interest of the Toledo alumni in the University. A number of ban- 
quets were given, at one of which the University was represented by Pres- 
ident Angell. 

A reorganization came in January, 1913, when the name, The University 
of Michigan Club of Toledo, was adopted. The constitution of the re- 
organized club provided for a membership of men only. The present offi- 
cers and the executive committee of the Club are as follows : 

John H. 0'Leary,'o5/, President; Frank A. Kapp, '10, First Vice- 
President ; Edward G. Kirby, '10/^ Second Vice-President; Robert G. Young,, 
'08/, Secretary; Paul T. Gaynor, '12/, Treasurer. Executive Committee: 
John H. OXeary, '05/; Frank A. Kapp, '10; Edward G. Kirby, '10/; Rob- 
ert G. Young, '08/; Paul T. Gaynor, '12/; Gustavus A. Kir'^hmaier, 'S^p; 
Fordyce Belford, '91/; W. L. Rhonehouse, 'loh; Henry W. Hess, '98, M.S, 
'99; Thos. F. Heatley, 'iim; James F. Hannon, '13d. 

The organization in January, 1913, came about as the result of a de- 
sire, particularly on the part of the younger graduates, for a more active

association. A number of alumni conspired, as one of the officers expressed 
it, to ''commandeer" a meeting of undergraduates. From this meeting, 
called to order by Robert G. Young, '08/, the present organization dates. 
Henry W. Ashley, '79, took the chair after the meeting was called to order, 
and a discussion of the problems of organization followed, with speeches 
from Henry W. Hess, '98, M.S. '99; Fordyce Belford, '91/; Harry E. King, 
'91, A. M. '02, Ph. D. '10; Frank A. Kapp, '10 and John D. Diggers, '09. 
It was discovered that a strong sentiment for a live organization existed 
and a committee consisting of Henry W. Ashley, '79 ; Frank L. MulhoUand, 
'99/; and John P. Diggers, '09, was appointed to provide a constitution 
and by-laws for the new organization. 

The second meeting was held in due time, and the University of 
Michigan Club of Toledo became a reality, with the following officers: 
Harry E. King. 91. A.M. '02, Ph.D. '10, President; John H. O'Leary, '05/, 
Vice-President ; Henry W. Hess, '98, M.S. '99, Vice-President ; Edward G. 
Kirby, '10/, Secretary; Frank A. Kapp, '10, Treasurer. 

The annual dues were placed at $2.00 for each member, with a fiscal 
year dating from March, 191 3. In confining the membership of the new 
association to men, the Club departed somewhat from tradition, but fol- 
lowed the example of many other associations, particularly those of the 
larger cities.

1915] THE TOLEDO ALUMNI CLUB 197 



ROBERT G. YOUNG, 'oSl PAUL T. GAYNOR, 'lal 

Secretary Treasurer 

In March, 19 13, the first dinner of the Club was held at the Commerce 
Club, with about two hundred present. The Secretary of the General 
Alumni Association, Wilfred B. Shaw, '04, pointed out some of the ad- 
vantages of organization, and indicated certain policies which might well 
be followed by the new organization. A quartet from the Varsity Glee 
Club also aided greatly to revive the interest of the Toledo alumni in the 
University. It was from this night that the success of the Toledo Club 
may be dated. 

An immediate result of organization was the establishment of noon 
luncheons every Wednesday at the Boody House, which were held through- 
out the year. These proved great centers of Michigan fellowship, and 
many times some "new" old alumnus would drop in to pay hfs reispects. 
Quite out of the ordinary was the visit of Roberto G. Sada, '08^, who, in the 
role of a refugee from Monterey during the Madero episode in Mexico, 
furnished some interesting first-hand information. 

The first banquet of the Association was held in May, 1914, at the 
Hotel Secor, with more than two hundred attending. President Hutchins, 
Dean Bates, Dean Vaughn and Dean Cooley were the representatives of 
the University, and helped to make the evening one that Toledo*s alumni 
will never forget. Judge E. Finley Johnson, '90/, of the Federal Court 
of the Philippines, was included in the program, as was also U. S. Dis- 
trict Attorney U. Grant Denman, '94/, and Reverend Geo. E. Mclllwain,

General Chairman of the Glee and Mandolin General Utility Committeeman with a record of 
Club Concert held December 19, 19x4 never missing a Michigan meeting 

*90. The Midnight Sons' Quartet from the Varsity Glee Club provided 
the music. While acting as toastmaster at the banquet, the president of 
the Association, Harry E. King, '91, A. M. '02, Ph. D. '10, delivered an 
invitation to the Association to spend an afternoon with him at his summer 
home, "Maple Grove," on the Maumee River. In June, 1914, he made his 
invitation good. One afternoon about sixty men boarded the good launch 
*'Arrawanna" for a memorable outing at his beautiful home on the river. 

The present year promises even greater successes for the Association. 
Beginning this fall, the weekly Wednesday luncheons are held at the Com- 
merce Club in the Nicholas Building, where from thirty to fifty men meet 
every week. Occasional speakers discuss current events. On the day of 
the Harvard-Michigan game, the Club had luncheon at the Kaiserhof Cafe, 
where a special wire gave the results of the game. These more or less 
informal gatherings of the Toledo alumni are among the most successful 
features of the work of the new organization. 

The latest enterprise of the Toledo Association is the entertainment 
on December 19, of the Varsity Glee and Mandolin Clubs, which held the 
first concert of their vacation trip at the Scott High School auditorium. 
The spirited enthusiasm of the songs and music of the Clubs carried the 
audience with them, and made the concert one of the best Michigan even- 
ings that Toledo alumni can remember. The concert was followed by a

dance in the gymnasium. The committee in charge of the concert and en- 
tertainment was Fordyce Belford '91/; Robert M. Lane, '06; Dr. Robert 
H. VoUmayer, *o6d and Dr. Wm. L. Rhonehouse, 'lofc. 

Next April the Michigan Union Opera will appear at the Auditorium 
Theater. Plans are already under way to give it a proper welcome. 

The efforts of those who have helped to organize the Toledo Associa- 
tion have not been in vain. The members have responded with eagerness, 
.and have established a center of Michigan spirit and democracy which they 
hope to make effective in a practical way through the establishment of a 
Toledo Scholarship Fund.

ATHLETICS 



TRACK PROSPECTS 

With the opening of classes following the 
Iholiday vacation, Trainer Steve Farrell, of 
the track team, has started active prepara- 
tions for the coming indoor season for his 
1915 Varsity. Several of the athletes who 
•will compete for Michigan this season were 
^mong those who stayed in Ann Arbor 
-during the holidays, and these men worked 
-out regularly in the gymnasium under the 
^trainer's active direction. 

Every indication points to a strong dual 
-track team for the Varsity this year, al- 
:though the squad will probably not be able 
to earn the high place Michigan has had 
in previous years at the Eastern Intercol- 
legiate. There will be few stars on the 
rteam this year, for nearly all of the men 
wiio brought back the third place honors 
from Cambridge last year have gra-duated. 
'Captain Kohler, Seward, Bond, and Jansen 
;are all gone, and these point winners of the 
1914 aggregation will be sorely missed. 
Captain Harold Smith and Ferris are the 
-only ones left of the athletes who contribut- 
ed their share to Michigan's total at the 
d)ig Eastern classic last spring. 

Captain Smith is a sprinter and won 
his colors in the century and 220-yard 
•dashes in the Harvard Stadium. Ferris 
reamed his right to the Intercollegiate *^M" 
by taking fifth place in the broad jump. 
These alone, of the big squad of men who 
"have signified their intention of coming 
•out for the 1915 team, will wear the coveted 
'Varsity "M" on their jerseys this year. 

But with a big squad of young Varsity 



recruits and some stars of 1914 All-Fresh 
fame in prospect, the task of developing 
a well-rounded team does not look so diffi- 
cult to Trainer Farrell as might otherwise 
be the case. Among the "aMa" men who 
will be eligible for competition are several 
athletes who missed winning their Varsity 
letters by the narrowest of margins, and all 
of them are capable performers in their 
events. Moreover, the majority of them 
are juniors, and on the verge of their 
greatest efficiency. 

Unless present indications are no cri- 
terion, the big star of the 1915 team, outside 
of Captain Smith himself, will be the 
sophomore Wilson, whose work thus far 
in the pole vault has been no less than 
phenomenal. Wilson is a Californian, 
which means that he is an athlete. Last 
year he was ineligible for All-Fresh com- 
petition through scholastic deficiencies, but 
he is all right this season, and Farrell 
looks for big things from him. Wilson has 
already broken the gym record in prac- 
tice, going up to n feet 7J4 inches several 
times. He is credited with 12 feet 6 inches 
out of doors, which stamps him as a 
wonderful performer. 

Smith is certain to shine in the century 
and 220-yard dashes, while Ferris is expect- 
ed to bolster up tiie broad jump squad. 
Contrary to the rule of previous years, 
Michigan seems destined to be strong in 
field events this year, with capable ath- 
letes in the two jumps, the pole vault and 
the weights. Captain Kohler will be sorely 
missed in these last, but the sophomores

[Januarys 



Cross and Kessler, with Phelps, Cochran 
and Quail from the upper classes, should 
furnish strong opposition to any set of 
weight men. 

Waterbury, another 1917 man, is Far- 
rell's best in the high jump. Last year this 
youngster did 5 feet 9^ inches consistently. 
1?his season Corbin, another sophomore, 
has been showing well. Corbin is a hurd- 
ler and has the natural form for the high 
jump. Cross and Kessler will be Wilson's 
chief assistants in the pole vault, while 
several capable jumpers are working out 
with Ferris in his event. 

O'Brien, Fontana, Ziegler and one or two 
more will appear with Captain Smith in 
the dashes. The colored lad, Lapsley, is 
prepared to do his usual stellar work in 
the indoor meets, where his ability as a 
dash man has neaer been questioned. Cat- 
lett, Corbin and Crumpacker are Farrell's 
best men in the hurdles. 

The distance runs show a big field of 
capable men. Ufer and Fox both wear 
"aMa"s. Captain Carroll of the 1914 All- 
Fresh is generally conceded to be a second 
Haimbaugh, w-hile Waters, Trelfa, Kuiv- 
inen, Graumann and Donnelly are all strong 
runners. 

Donnelly may put his entire time into the 
half-mile, where Murphy of last year's 
Varsity squad is now the strongest man. 
In the quarter-mile run Herrick and Burbey 
are the most likely men, although their in- 
experience is likely to militate against 
them. 



THE FOOTBALL SCHEDULE DELAYED 

The action of the Harvard athletic 
authorities in declining to schedule a 1915 
game with Michigan played havoc with 
the efforts of the Varsity schedule makers, 
with the result that, as this is written, the 
names of the teams which will be met in 
IQ15 are still mysteries. 

Although they had been practically warn- 
ed by dispatches from Boston to the effect 
that Harvard might not place Michigan 
on its schedule again, the official announce- 
ment of Professor A. S. Whitney, chair- 
man of the Athletic Board in Control, con- 
cerning the situation, came as a surprise 
to the majority of the Michigan rooters. 

Th^ following is Professor Whitney's 
statement and fully explains the situation : 

"On Saturday, December 12, Athletic 
Director Bartelme received a telegram 
from Mr. Moore, the graduate treasurer 
of the Harvard Athletic Association, to the 
effect that there was apparently not a pos- 
sibility of a western trip by the Harvard 
football team this year or next, and that 
their coaches thought because of green 
material next fall a mid-season game with 



a team so powerful physically as Michigan 
would be unwise. In reply to a query by 
telegram as to whether the decision of the 
Harvard authorities was final, Mr. Moore 
replied in the affirmative." 

This decision is particularly disappointing 
to Michigan because of the fact that the 
Varsity had met the Crimson in 1914 with 
an acknowledgedly weak team, in the hope 
that they would be given an opportunity 
in succeeding years to avenge possible 
defeat. 

The problem of filling the place left 
vacant by Harvard is the chief one now 
before the Michigan athletic authorities. 
That th€ nine-game schedule will be re- 
tained is considered a certainty because of 
its success this year. For this reason sev- 
eral new opponents must be found. Van- 
derbilt, De Pauw and Harvard, of the 
teams met this past year, will not be on the 
1915 schedule, it is unofficially announced, 
and substitutes must be found for them. 

The annual game with Cornell will be 
the big "home" battle, with the Ithacans 
coming to Ann .A.rbor for the second suc- 
cessive year. Philadelphia will be the 
scene of th« Michigan-Pennsylvania game, 
which will probably be the last on the 
schedule. Syracuse will come to Ann Ar- 
bor, as will also M. A. C, these two battles: 
furnishing the features of the Varsity's 
mid-season play. Case and Mount Union 
will be the practice tilts, with one other 
small team added. 



MAULBETSCH ON THE ALL-AMERICAN* 

Michigan once again put a man on the 
mythical All-American football eleven dur- 
ing the 1 914 season when Walter Camp, in 
his annual selections, chose Maiilbetsch for 
the post of halfback, with Mahan and 
Bradlee of Harvard as his running mates^ 
In view of the fact that the Michigan 
man is only a sophomore, and won the 
place over Spiegel of Washington and Jef- 
ferson, a four-year man, the recognition 
accorded Michigan is considered a sig- 
nal one and Maulbetsch's honors all the 
greater. 

No other Michigan players were named 
on any of the three teams picked by the 
Yale critic, although Captain Raynsford., 
Hughitt and Captain-elect Cochran were 
all selected among the 100 best players who* 
competed in collegiate football during the 
past season. 

In naming Maulbetsch, Walter Camp- 
praised his playing in no mean terms, cit- 
ing him as one of the greatest plunging 
backs in the history of the game. Camp 
saw Maulbetsch in action :n the Harvard- 
Michigan game, and the stellar work of

the "German Bullet" in that clash, when 
he bore the brunt of the offensive play by 
Michigan, is believed to have persuaded 
Camp of the 'Michigan player's worth. 

This selection delighted the student body, 
for the sophomore is a popular idol among 
the team's supporters. With the prestige of 
the 1914 season behind him, it is confidently 
expected that Maulbetsch will develop into 
a player whose work and reputation will 
rival that of Heston. 

The fact that others of the 1914 Varsity 
were not named for places on any of his 
three elevens came as a distinct surprise. 
The work of Captain Raynsford was of 
such a higli class throughout the season, 
that many, including Coach Yost, expected 
that the Varsity leader would receive more 
recognition than was his. The unfortunate 
injury which kept Hughitt from showing 
his true worth is taken as the reason for 
his not receiving a place. 

The naming of Maulbetsch for the Camp 
-AIl-*American brought to a close the annual 
season of selections of mythical elevens, 
the remarkable feature of which was the 
practically unanimous choice of the Mich- 
igan man for a place. Not a single critic 
of note failed to put the Varsity 'halfback 
on his eleven, an honor which has been 
accorded to but few Midhigan men. 



BASKETBALL 

In spite of the fact that Michigan does 
not boast a Varsity basketball team, interest 
in this winter sport is far from dormant on 
the Campus, and with the opening of 
school following the holiday vacation, hun- 
dreds of players have appeared on the 
gym floor ready for practice for the an- 
nual Campus championship series. 

Last year there were over 400 men in 
the practice squads of the various class 
teams. This record promises to be broken 
by the number who will report for the 
work-outs under the team leaders. As was 
the case last year, complaints have arisen 
over the lack of adequate practice space 
and many teams have been forced to fore- 
go long training sessions because of their 
inability to obtain use of the floor. So 
great is the demand for practice hours, 
that Director Floyd Rowe has found it 
necessary to apportion time for the various 
teams. The freshman players will be al- 



lowed the majority of the time inasmuch 
as their players have never competed to- 
gether. 

The season this year promises to be un-. 
usually successful, with many players of 
known ability already enrolled on the var- 
ious teams. Play in the championship series 
will be similar to that in the football 
tournament, with department champions^ 
determined in preliminaries and each team 
being given more than one opportunity to 
prove its worth before being eliminated.. 



CROSS COUNTRY PROSPECTS 

Although Michigan was not represented 
in any collegiate competition in cross- 
country running during the past fall sea- 
son, one of the largest squads in recent 
years participated in the various home 
meets and in the two runs with the squad 
from the Detroit Central Y. M. C. A. As. 
a result of this competition seven men were- 
given the CCC, the highest award for the^ 
cross-country men, while to many others 
went the merit certificates which denote 
creditable work in long distance running. 

The Michigan runners won both their 
meets with the Detroit runners, and in 
the home meets some good time records, 
were hung up. Kuivinen, a sophomore, 
was the star of the season, with Bouma as 
next best. The latter is a freshman, and 
great work is expected of him during the^ 
coming year. 

H. L. Carroll of Lockport, N. Y., a 
sophomore, was elected captain of the 1915 
cross-country team, while Frank Walters 
of Lansing, Mich., was chosen as the new 
president oit the Cross Country Club. Those- 
to whom the CCC award was given were 
Carroll, Trelfa, Kuivinen, Bouma, I>on- 
nelly, Olson and Vance. 

Prospect's for an exceptionally strong 
team in 1915 are bright. Trelfa is the 
only runner who will not be eligible for 
competition next season, and there are 
many men ready to "fill his place. A pro- 
gram of thorough training has been map- 
ped out for next year with the idea in view 
of again sending a team east to compete 
in the annual Intercollegiate Cross Coun- 
try meet. At her last appearance, the 
Michigan Varsity failed to place, and the- 
runners are anxious to retrieve their old; 
laurels.

CINCINNATI 

From the Cincinnati Times-Star, we clip 
the following account of the entertainment 
provided by the Cincinnati Association for 
the members of the Glee and Mandolin 
Clubs of the University on December 21. 

The Michigan men, on their arrival, were 



met by local University of Michigan men, 
and dividing into groups, they were taken 
in automobiles to the Walnut Hills and 
Hughes high schools and the University, 
where they gave short impromptu concerts, 
during the morning. They assembled at 
the Gibson at 12:30 and the University of 
Michigan Alumni Association of Cincin- 
nati and vicinity gave a jolly luncheon party 
for them. 

Mr. Lawrence Maxwell '74i A.M. (hon.) 
'93, LL.D. '04, is the president of the local 
alumni and Mr. C. C. Benedict, '92, the 
secretary and treasurer. Mr. Henry T. 
Bannon, '89, of Portsmouth, O., is the first 
vice-president; Mr. Lewis Arnett, /'96-*98^ 
of Covington, second vice-president, and 
Mr. Edward Hafner, r93-'94, third vice- 
president. The executive committee con- 
sists of Messrs. W. B. Burtner, '94/, Her- 
man • Guckenberger, '03/, O. K. Jones. '99/, 
A. West Schell, '09-'! i. and Dr. M. L. 
Heidingsfeld, '93. 

In all forty-three men arrived in the 
group. After their luncheon they gave an 
impromptu concert in the foyer of the 
Gibson. Their aggregation includes, be- 
sides the Glee Club, a rather elaborate 
number of strings for a university groupr 
their small orchestra having violins, guit- 
ars, 'cellos, banjos, mandolins, and a snare 
drum, and their programme includes one 
or two numbers seldom attempted by col- 
lege visitors. 

At 4 oclock the men were taken in ma- 
chines out to the home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Lawrence Maxwell, who invited to meet 
them half a hundred of the younger girls 
of society for an informal dance, followed 
by supper and from there the men arranged 
to go to their Pullman to prepare for the 
concert. The clubs finish their Christmas 
round of concerts in Detroit on January 2, 
when they have a joint concert with the 
Harvard Glee Club. 

The Emery Auditorium's stage was gay 
with Michigan pennants for the concert 
and again the maize and blue was displayed 
among the palms, the pale corn color and 
the light blue being very effective. Quite 
a number of box parties and parties in 
seats were made up for the occasion. 



DETROIT 

Hon. George P. Codd, '91, judge of the 
Wayne County Circuit Court, spoke at the 
Wednesday luncheon of the Detroit Club 
on December 9, taking as his subject the

bell, *93^, C.E. '04, formerly Commissioner 
of Public Works in the Philippines, and an

time plans will be made for a banquet later 
in the year. H. B. Skiixman. 



NEW YORK ALUMNAE 

Fraunces Tavern, one of the historical 
landmarks of New York and the place 
where Washington bade farewell to his 
officers, was the scene of a happy meeting 
on December 5th of the University of 
Michigan Women's Club. This building is 
now the Club House of the Sons of the 
American Revolution, who in restoring it 
maintained its colonial atmosphere. 

The sixty guests were recived at the 
entrance by a gentleman in powdered wig 
and Cotonial livery of yellow and blue — 
the true Michigan colors. After a social 
hour, the Club were escorted to the ban- 
quet hall under the mansard roof. 

Miss Alta B. Chase, '09, who made the 
arrangements for the day, had so care- 
fully attended to all the details that noth- 
ing was lacking for the good time which 
characterized this meeting. 

The president. Miss Florence Sunder- 
land, '03, in introducing the guests of honor, 
Dr. Elsie S. Pratt, '04m, of Michigan, and 
Professor Lucy M. Salmon, '76, A.M. '83, 
of Vassar, likened the meeting to the recent 
Harvard- Yale football game — Yale provid- 
ed the Bowl, Harvard the Punch. The 
guests' speeches served as a sparkling punch 
for the luncheon. 

Greetings from President Hutchins and 
President Emeritus Angell, tendered by Dr. 
Pratt, received hearty applause. The Club 
listened with marked interest to Dr. Pratt's 
account of her work with the girls in the 
"Health Service" which is focused upon 
prevention rather than cure. The new 
residence halls will help the directors solve 
this problem, but the speaker urged the 
necessity of an infirmary. She said that 
the girls of the Universit
