land values depend iii large measure
for their very existence, upon the pres-
ence here of the state university, and
that these values .do and must rise or
fall with its growth and expansion. It
would seem that owners of Ann Arbor
realty, besides giving the universit'y
the loyal support which might be ex-
pected from public spirited citizens
generally 'for an institution of their
state, should have an added interest in
and concern for its welfare, from self-
ish motives, if not from gratitude. At
any rate one might expect from them
public spirit in their dealings with the
school and its authorities.
This would appear to be very far
from the view of the matter taken by
the parties owning the Thayer street
property which the regents are at-
tempting to secure for the building of
the new auditorium. The circuit court
jury has placed a valuation on the
property. The state stands willing to
pay what is the present value of the.
land, with an added amount as com-
pensation for the taking under eminent
domain. The property holders are
asking some three thousand dollars in
excess of the jury's price. The need
of a new auditorium is great. Conven-
ience, comfort, and safety demand it;
it could render big service to various
university enterprises. It cannot well
be built on land now owned by the re-
gents, and the state is being asked to
pay ,for a desirable site a considerable
sum beyond an "unearned increment"
for which it is itself responsible.
Refreshing to contrast with the at-
titude of these Ann Arbor people is
that of late regent Arthur Hill whose
generosity has made this much desired
edifice possible. 'The university had
never increased property values for
him. There was no reason, perhaps'
to suppose that it ever would do so..
But he gave freely, in a public spirited
and unselfish manner, for the benefit
of the people of the state and country,
in which he lived.
Every time University Hall is packed
to its capacity the very lives of nearlyl
three thousand human beings are
placed in some degree of peril. We.
wonder what the feelings of the people
who are preventing the construction of
the Red and Blue supporters who jour-
neyed from Philadelphia to encourage
their team. The result of the game
made us delirious with joy but we did
not forget to frankly admit that the
men of Pennsylvania for gameness and
ability equalled our own representa-
We are quite satisfied that the"Penn-
sylvanian," as it has reported the game
represents the true sentiment of the
student body at Philadelphia. It gives
Michigan credit for a hard fought vic-
tory, which is right. It gives Pennsyl-
vania credit for a plucky team which
fights till the last second of play,
which is undeniable. No complaint is
made of our hospitality which we have
every reason to believe was as actual
as intended and no blame is attached
to the officials for either poor judg-
ment or unfairness, which attitude is
as sportsmanlike as it is justified.
JUST TWO FRESHMEN INSNARE
PROFESSORS AND FRATERNITY.
Adhering to the maxim "that fresh-
men should be seen, not heard," two
of the verdant ones appeared on the
campus yesterday afternoon, togged in
the paraphernalia usually assignable
to feminine members of the theatrical
profession and with their identity hid-
den behind wondrous veils. To entice
two brother first year men by artful
glances over their shoulders didn't
take the whole afternoon, and the rest:
of it was spent in "seein' the campus."
Incidentally there were numerous in-
troductions with no disclosing of the
In the evening a certain fraternity
was visited to the great discomfiture
of a faculty member of the organiza-
tion, who was called in in great haste
to show the invaders out. Unfortun-
ately, or fortunately, as you please, his
efforts were wasted, and it was not until
his own retreat had beeneffected that
the unsuspecting escorts, their "prizes"
in tow, saw fit to quiet the tumult by
