Night Editor-C. Harold Hippler.
A Roman Graveyard.
It is not often that we have occas-
ion to do otherwise than criticise in
our editorial column. It is therefore
with great pleasure that The Mich-
igan Daily finds an opportunity to
commend the good taste exhibited in
decorating Memorial Hall.
Memorial Hall, As some of us who
have been there recall, is the ornate
Grecian structure at the southwest
corner of the campus, built at the ex-
pense of a few hundred thousand dol-
lars, the new Michigan Union, the new
science building, etc., etc. Being me-
morial it carries with it the flavor of
things dead ahd gone. Logically the
decorations ought to harmonize with
the general atmosphere of the place.
Hence it is that we can point with
pride to the fact that the artistic soul
of some unrecognized genius has led
him to conceive the idea of turning
it into a Roman graveyard.
Not only do the hieroglyphics on the
tombstones lend an air of pedantic
impressiveness to the building, but
from an aesthetic standpoint, the del-
icate carving, the beauty of coloring,
and the grace of outline make the
little white tablets fit specimens to ac-
company "Lee's Surrender on the Mag-
ic Carpet," the statue of Lewis Cass
and other masterpieces elsewhere in
the halls.
Even the inscriptions harmonize
completely with the spirit of the place.
A Memorial hall in an American uni-
versity should be democratic above all
things. And here we find that after
the leveling hand of death had struck
a few blows at the Roman aristocra-
cy, those who had been meek and low-
ly in their day began to obtain recog-
nition. No stones are found here
which once marked the graves of Cae-
sars" Instead we read the epitaphs of
men who were once plumbers, simple.
tradesmen, struggling politicians, and
others in the lowliest walks of life.
We are carried away by the whole
philosophy in which the decorative ef-
feet is conceived. Who can enter the
hall and fail to be impressed by the
fact that even amounts to anything
while he lives, after he is dead, be he
butcher, or be he second-hand clothes
dealer, he too will some day be im-
mortalized, and his name will afford
aesthetic pleasure to students who
live many generations after he is gone.
VEREIN WILL ENTERTAIN ITS
PLAYERS AT BANQUET TONIGHT
Professors, officers, and actors will
be speakers at the banquet to be ten-
dered to the "Die Journalisten" cast
by the Deutscher Verein tonight at
the Union. Professor J. A. C. Hildner,
faculty director, will act as toastmas-
ter and will call on Prof. Max Wink-
ler, John Townley, Lawrence Clayton,
and others for short talks. There will
be music by members of the cast.

BACHELLER IS LAST
SPEAKER ON S.LA.
Noted Word Painter Depicts Droll
Speech and Quaint Songs of
New England.
THINKS POVERTY AN INCENTIVE..
When an S. L. A. audience listened
last night to Mr. Irving Bacheller's
talk, it heard the last of the lectures
of the Association for the current
school year.
A word_ painter of the first merit,
Mr. Bacheller stamped himself upon
his audience with a mark that ap-
proaches the indelible. His talk,
which could hardly bear a title, de-
spite the erroneous announcement that
he was to outline his well known sat-
ire "Keeping up With Lizzie," took on
the color of a heart to heart talk with
a group of listeners which might have
gathered but informally to sit beside
a winter evening's fire with him and
a pipe. Mr. Bacheller is above all
things a dreamer, and a dreamer who
is deliciously contagious. He is gifted
with a voice which is of no mediocre
timbre and he spread a real pleasure
among his listeners when he sang
old songs that time would make a bore
perhaps should they be attempted by
another who had not the distinctive
Bacheller personality.
His .talk touched upon some good
sound advice to young men, which he
couched in a belief that poverty is the
best thing that our nation, or any
nation can boast of. According to his
belief it is the initial incentive to pro-
gressiveness. It provides the stimulus
which makesmen rise to leaderships
in? life. He does not pity the rich, but
he invokes them not to pity the poor.
In his character sketches which fol-
lowed, Mr. Bacheller again turned his
talents in a surprising manner. Faith-
fully he brought his quaint old-fash-
ioned friends to his listeners by mim-
icking their every word and phrase in
the droll easy going manner of speech
of the New England provinces.
JOURNALISM NEEDS COLLEGE
MEN, SAYS DETROIT EDITOR.
Good sound advice, givenin a wit-,
ty manner, was the keynote of Mr.
James Schemerhorn's talk before
Prof. Scott's class in journalism yes-
terday morning. The speaker spent
the chire hour in a survey of the
best principles of journalism.
"I am glad that so many are taking
a college course in the preparation for
work in journalism," he said. "There
aro many young men in the profession
today who have all the characteristics
of keen newspaper men, but they lack
a f ertain finish that comes with a col-
lege education. We want all the col-
lege men we can get to join the pro-
fession."
In addition to the members of the
class, a large number of interested
persons attended the lecture. Among
them was Irving Bacheller, who spoke
last night on the S. L. A. program. Mr.
Bacheller was most interested in the
Detroit editor's remarks and at the
close of the lecture expressed his ap-
preciation of the talk.
