The committee appointed by the
senior laws yesterday should go slow
in procuring a speaker for Washing-
ton's birthday. They should remem-
ber that some of the most proninentt
men in the country have heretofore
been here on that day and that our
sister university at Chicago has se-
cured a member of the supreme bench
for this year. It has been formerly
the general custom to get men, uncon-
nected with the University or grad-
uates of some other institution. It
seems, however, that Michigan,
among her immense alumni could find
one eminent enough to fill this posi-
tion and who would appreciate the
honor all the more as coming from his
Several members of the Dental
school have wished to know of late
why they were not represented on the
board, and allege unfairness in shut-
ting them off from such representa-
tion. The reason is that a certain
number of subscribers must be ob-
tained from each department before
that department is entitled to repre-
sentation and the Dental department
according to our books is not yet so
entitled. The subscribers which the
Daily has in this department say that
a large number of dents read their
papers and for that reason do not sub-
scribe. The Dental department has at
present a good man competing for a
position on the staff and would now
be represented had it subscribed more
liberally. The Dental school is too
large a department to be left thus and
should have sufficient pride to see that
there is a man on the board to repre-
sent its interests.
The editorial from the Albion Col-
lege Pleiad which we reprint in an-
other column cannot fail to be grati-
fying to students and faculty alike.
While the Daily believes the "bru-
tality" of our team in former years
toward Albion is somewhat over-
drawn, yet there have been times in
the history of Michigan football when
there was cause for just complaint on
this score. This year, however, with
the exception of a slight tendency in
that direction last Saturday, the men
have put up a fair, clean gaie, and
well deserve the praises which Albion,
even in defeat, so generously gives.
There is not a true college man in the
University who can read the Pieiad's
words of commendation without feel-
ing all the prouder that our team can
not only play football, but is made up
of gentlemen as well.
Words of Praise.
The most gratifying feature of the
Albion-U. of Al. gane was the friend-
liness of spirit manifested throughout.
Albion students have dreaded to seed
their team to Ann Arbor, not because
of probable defeat, but simply for the
reason that previously they have
never been treated in a gentlemanly
manner. With this one exception, the
history of our past games with the
University is a bitter one. Particu-
larly is this true of the game year
before last, when our boys were most
brutally treated. There is no doubt
that such action upon the part of our
big neighbor has been due to the fact
that Albion is the only college in the
state which stands a show of playing
the University eleven anything like an
even game. The bitterness of spirit
heretofore displayed has made it evi-
dent that the Ann Arbor people both
feared and hated us. With the excep-
tion of the cruel tackle of Captain
Shipp, last Saturday's game was un-
marred by any unseemly display of
brute force. Not only did the Uni-
versity eleven play like men, but the
University student body acted like
men. The result was a scientific
game, a helpful game, and the birth
of a friendly rivalry between the two
schools. There is much in all of this
upon which to base congratulation,
both for Ann Arbor and for Albion.
The probabilities are that the Univer-
sity can defeat us on the football field
nine times out of ten; hence it is to
her advantage to put up a clean game.
That victory alone is worth gaining,
uot of which the vanquished come
with words of commendation for the
victors. What is more to the point, a
college is judged, in a great measure,
by its behavior in athletics. This may
be unfair, but, as a matter of fact, it
is indisputable. It is altogether in the
best interest of the University to play
respectable ball, for, in so doing, she
not only wins the confidence of her
athletic rivals, but she also enlarges
her chances of securing graduate stu-
dents from the Michigan colleges with
which her team contests in battles of
brawn.-Albion College Pleiad.
