It almost seems as if the university
does not: really '-appreciate' the value
of an excellent administr'ative officer,
for the nervous breakdown of the
dean may be attributed rightly to the
fact that he w as overworked. Instead
of occupying himself with the big
problems and dities of his office, he
had to, act as father confessor to every
student' who had something on his

minor thing.: This constantL strain' was
just as great as his other~'work called
for and the two sets' of duties ctom-

Dean John 0. Deed.
Overwork, under conditions more or
s iht inf
less trying has forced Dean John 0.
Reed to retire for several years in an
effort to regain his lost health. Con-
stant and untiring effort to raise the
standard of the literary department,
ne'rve racking struggles of more or
less frequency, together with a hard
fight against intermittent eye trouble,
which at times threatened total blind-
ness, have all assisted in undermin-
ing a none too strong constitution.
To John 0. Reed, more than any
other man, the literary department
owes a debt of gratitude. To his un-
ceasing efforts and his administrative
ability,, are due the rise of standard
in this department. When he took the
office of dean, the literary department
wvas more or less of a joke among the
undergraduates. This soon ceased to

The editor'and staff o6f'The -Painted
Window' are to be congratulated 'upon
their' 'first' attempt into' the fielid of

set by their first edition is 'high and
should be greatly 'appreciated by the
student body. There is a reail field at
Alichigan for a p~urely literary produc-
tion, and thlis latest -' production,
which takes" the place of the long
defunct and' much "mourned Inlander;
is doubly welcome.
