merely wish to refer to this news item
in support of the contention that the
university can benefit the state by a
discussion of leading political, social,
and economic questions, and that aca-
demic discussions are frequently of
use to the man of the world. The sys-
tem of extension lectures is another
example of what we may and do do
to give the taxpayers greater return
for their money, and to encourage
them to give us more support. The
people are not more eager to receive
assistance of the university in solv-(
ing their problems than the university
is to serve the people.

The University and the State.
So often has our usefulness to the
State and the usefulness of universities
generally to the world outside been
called in question by newspapers,
muckrakers, and "practical" business
men, that it is consoling to read of the
prospective attendance of several Kal-
amazoo business men at the North-
western-Michigan debate tomorrow
night in search of light on the doc-
trine of the recall of public officers.
It is just about a year since one of the
Detroit dailies suffered an eruption
as the result of our debating the in-
come tax question with constitution-
ality conceded. That was cited as an
illustration of the manner in which
colleges rob their discussions of prac-
tical value by emasculating the prop-
osition, and sundry generalizations fol-
lowed anent the uselessness of aca-
demic inquiries and investigations.
We do not now raise an old issue, but

TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY.
A women's mass meeting pondered
long and arduously on thV question of
whether the man should take the wo-
man's arm, or vice versa, when walk-
ing along the street in couples. One
young lady protested that she did not
wish any gentleman to "scull" her
along the thoroughfare.
