acteristic of Michigan, and of such
make and quality as to be permanently
prized,issued, say, by the Michigan Un-
ion to seniors and alumni members,
would serve to identify and tend to
unify "Michigan men everywhere." The
jriea has been worked out with great
success at Princeton, and the button
is more highly prized among Prince-
ton men than their diploma.
Just now there is an ideal opportu-
nity to start such a plan. The athlet-
ic association button will probably be
transferred to the Union. The Union
would do well to make use of the
privilege this year, and exercise it on
seniors and alumni during commence-

The Aim of Athletics.
Generally the English idea of the
function of athletics, is gaining cre-
dence in this country, namely, that
over and above the spectacular, athlet-
ics offer fields for greater good; that
their sphere of usefulness is not ex-
hausted in. furnishing non-participants
with a sane source for relaxation, a
worthy end in itself, but that further,
athletics offer the means to a still
more desirable end, the physical up-
building of the students at large.
The idea contemplates the institu-
tion. of a large number of sports, with
the hope that every student may have
the inclination and opportunity to be-
come .proficient in some one. That,
granted the fulfillment of this scheme,
desirable results would follow, is evi-
denced by the opinions of such men as
Dr. William Anderson, of Harvard,
who writes, "that athletes live longer
than their non athletic brothers,. and
that insurance, companies accept the
athlete as a better risk."
Already the eastern universities
have come to this realization with the
result, that most of them, including
Harvard, Yale, Pennsylvnia and Cor-
nell, who spend annually over $15,000
on minor sports, show alarge percent-
age of their students engaged in one
or more of some dozen different forms
of athletic recreation.
In Michigan, the converse might al-
most said to be true. Heretofore, com-
paratively few have participated act-
ively in sport. It has ever been an oc-
casion of difficulty for the association
and various class managers to arouse
sffficient enthusiasm to put out teams,
other than the varsity.
Of course none are to blame but the
students; had they desired opportuni-
ties for greater physical attainment,
such would have been forthcoming.
But, nevertheless, .it is well for those
having this particular matter under
guidance, to anticipate, possibfy to
help bring about this fuller realization
on the part of the students. At any
rate, to give encouragement to any stu-
dent expression consistent with such

We are in the sweep of a movement
toward unity. The time for the round-
ion- up has come. By various means the
sons of Michigan are being drawn
back into the fold, and are beginning
to cooperate for the common benefit
of themselves and their Alma Mater.
ew A fellow-feeling -between our alumni
should be fostered and aided in every
possible way. The sooner we, men of
Michigan, come to feel that we are
