of the Eveni


Dr. Lewis S.'Pilcher, '62-'66 M, of
. New York, was the speaker of the ev-
ening at the celebration of the sixtieth
anniversary of the founding of the
medical department. The subject of
his paper was on "Anti-toxin Against
Commercialism in Medicine."
Against the view of medicine as a
trade in the hands of artisans whose
sole purpose is to get money, Dr. Pil-
cher pointed out that the nien of the
4 profession possessed a spirit of ser-
vice, a. devotion to duty, and a forget-

fulness of self.
This celebrated alumnus advocated
the liberal education in the philosophy,
development and practice of medicine.
As practical suggestions for accom-
plishing these results, he proposed a
building equipped with paintings, busts
and statues of those who had built up
the science. As a second step in. the
direction of culture, he called attention
to the study of medical history and bi-
ography in order to develop the right
mental attitude and an adequate- con-,
ception of the field. His anti-toxin was
the promotion of cultural thought and
purity of purpose early .in the student's
career-and the development of a higher
ethical spirit.
In speaking on the subject, Dr.
Vaughan said that he hoped that the
old medical building would be replaced
by a new one of the character describ-
ed by Dr. Pilcher.
Following the address, a reception
was held in honor of Dr. Frederick
Hallet of London, England, who is a
member of the Combined Continental
Board of Medical Examiners.
Leonard M. Rieser, '14, has been ap-
pointed general chairman of the pro-

Charter members of the Michigan
Union Opera club will meet at the Un-

"Pip" Titus Joins Ranks of the Elite.

Writer Thinks Activities for
Social Poise Should
Be Enforced

Editor, Michigan Daily:-
I take it that the letter published in
your paper of some weeks ago in re-
spect to the social advantage for the
women of the university was a first
shot fired to arouse others from other
A university more than ay other
place should stand for true communi-
ty ideals, Any opportunities for ad-
vancement should be equally accessi-
ble to all. It (the university),may cre-
ate a society of its own. Marion, Ohio,
or Leadville, Kentucky, has to adhere
to social tradition established in years
gone by; but a university thinks out
its standard and lives up to it.
What I mean to say is this: the
efforts to reach the women of the uni-
versity with cultural influence through
the ordinary conventional means are
unavailing. The faculty wives may
give tea after tea and the sorority
houses open their house innumerable
timeso without reaching the difficulty.
We plan systems for physical and
mental culture and they are imposed
arbitrarily on the student body. When
it is a matter of social training the
women are left to respond or not as
they feel impelled. I should think it
would be as pertinent to enforce some
activities that would lead towards the
acquisition of social poise and charm.
It is bruited about that the sororities
attempt things for the women who are
not members and that these efforts
are not appreciated or responded to.
From the very nature of the case,
the gl who is not asked into a sor-
ority feels that she is not desired as
an associate. If she cannot give as
much as she receives she will not sub-
mit to patronage. If the sorority is
sincere in its desire to spread its ad-
vantages let it take in two or three
women who need the social contact
that the sorority gives and thus actu-
ally prove its sense of equality with
any woman at the university.
A University Woman.
Dr. Reuben Peterson will attend the
eighth annual conference of the Amer-
ican Medical Association on medical
education, medical legislature and pub-
lic health to be held in Chicago, Feb-
ruary 26 and 27. He will give an ad-
dress on the. relation of the medical
school to the fifth or clinical year.
While in Chicago, Dr. Peterson will
attend the meeting of the Association
of American Medical Colleges as a del-
egate appointed by the university and
the Michigan State Medical Society.

It is with great sadness that we
chronicle the demise of Mr. Spring Re-
porter, of the Daily contributorial
staff, the lamented event occurring at
an early hour this morning. Only a
few of the most intimate friends of the
deceased were present at the bed-side
for few knew of his illness. Attending
physicians attribute the cause to a pe-
culiar form of disease known as aero-
plane-intoxication, which, in its collo-
quial sense, means simply, a broken'
It is doubtul ifeven the departed one
realized the swiftness with which his
life was sapped out. During the fore
part of the week he was busy about the
office--the same jovial happy Mr.
Spring Reporter of old-renewing ac-
quaintances with the regular staff men
and meeting those who are new on the
paper, or who remembered but hazily

his visits of past years.
This morning, as we go to press, the
copy hook, crowded with the carefully
written sheets of the deceased's last
story, looks up at us almost reproach-
fully as if vexed at our seeiing negli-
gence in not finding space for the story
in Issue Number 93. To Memory com-
es flaunting fragments of the "last
leaf upon the tree." In mind's eye, we
can see faithful old Mr. Spring Report-
er, painfully but lovingly, sketching
and composing those unused sheets.
.'Love's labor lost," drifts to our ears
from somewhere.
But call it not "Love's labor lost."
When the time comes, the story will
appear. That time will be when the
wonders of which the story sings shall
have arrived-the dancing Huron, the
red-coated, cherry-searching robin, the
lusty thrush, the bursting buds, the
