Secretary Smith Delivers Pilncipal
Address at Alumni Banquet
in Philadelphia.
"The eastern alumni favor MAichigan's
present athletic relations," said Secre-
tary Shirley W. Smith yesterday, "and
they are opposed to a return to the
conference. It's a good thing for them
to have a team from Michigan down
east a few times a year."
Mr. Smith returned yesterday from
a week's trip to Philadelphia and
Washington, and gave the principal
address at a banquet of Philadelphia
alumni, Saturday evening. His sub-
ject, "News from Home," included
particulars about the Union, the ath-
letic situation, and the Seventy-fifth
Dr. Carl C. Huber, of the university

The cogs of the sophomoric social ac-
tivity have slipped another notch. The
last blow, hardest of all, comes after
the three-cornered tangle of council,
Athletic Association, and .the sophs
themselves, had been solved.
All preparations for a record Soph-
omore Day on May 25 were on foot,
advertising out, plans laid, tangles
solved, expectations whetted. Then
comes the information that inter-soci-
ety festivities, planned for the same
date, but some weeks ahead of the
sophs, again quashed the hopes of the
second year men. Not only that, but

"Humanities have varied with ourl
ideas of manhood," declared Prof.?
Felix Schelling, of the University of
Pennsylvania, last night at the fifth
annual banquet of Phi Beta Kappa in
Barbour gymnasium in honor of the1
new members from the class of 1912.
"I regard the study of ancient Greek
culture as necessary to the study of
literature as antique sculpture is to
the study of art. The study must be
pursued with a disinterestedness
which will allow free play to its lib-
eral elements. The measure of the,
educational values of the humanities
lies in their practical utility.
"Our ideals 'in education change and
must be adapted to present needs. We
are in a struggle for the very princi-
ple of liberality of education itself.
Practical utility is by far the most in-
sidious enemy of modern, education,"
said Prof. Schelling. "I mean by util-
ity that chief reckoning upon com-
mercial values, a reduction of things
human and divine to monetary stand-
ards. Utility demands that we hurry
our boys to the professional schools
before they are ready for college, that
we turn as many studies as possible
into their practical application. Utili-
ty in education destroys the idea for
which a university is created, and
transfers it into a submissive follower
in the wake of a constantly degener-
ating public opinion.
"The greatest need of our education
today is a restoration of the humani-
ties in our college courses to a larger
portion than has been theirs for many
years. The ancient languages will
long remain the most fruitful of the
humanities because of their splendid
isolation from the possibility of ap-
praisement by modern utilitarian
Prof. A. G. Canfield, president of the
local chapter, presided at the banquet.
Prof. Arthur L. Cross also spoke and
gave an- account of the aims of Phi
Beta Kappa.
