dent body; which does not seem capa-
ble of providing other means of caring
for sick students than an underman-
ned clinical hospital; which cannot
afford to better the terrible conditions
existant among the lower classes in
Ann Arbor, who dwell upon the oppo-
site side of theHuron river, this same
university is apparently establishing
and supporting a foreign mission
among the poor, downtrodden heathen.
This is not meant as a criticism
against foreign missions. They have
their place, and a great place, too,
but; until the university can better
its own frightful conditions, why
should it take upon itself the support
of a project whose only value from
our standpoint, is one of advertising.
It does not create a sensation to
provide better conditions for the stu-
dent body, or to establish a good in-
firmary. Other colleges have done
this and are many years in advance
of us. They are so far advanced that
they can afford to support foreign
projects like the Busrah mission.
These reflect great glory and are an
an excellent medium of advertising.
These seem to be followed and even
supported by prominent faculty men
when almost nothing is done to safe-
guard the health of the students, or
to better the condition of our own
lower classes. This work would not
be noticed as much as a big foreign
mission, naturally, but which is more
If the university does not support
this Busrah scheme and does not
maintain these men in that miasmic
spot of the Mesopotamian valley, why
is another organization permitted to
make free of the university name?
The Board of Regents'has protested
against this by recent resolution. It
seems a pity that whenever apparent
sanction and good advertising is de-
sired that the name of the university
must be dragged in by the heels in
black face type.

Charity Begins at Home.
The conscientious housekeeper
sweeps out her home carefully before
going out to give advice to her neigh-
bors; the gossip and sloven stands on
the front porch, or leans over the
back fence, and tells others how to
run their affairs, while her children
run wild and her house is untidy and
dirty. The old saying of the stone
throwing ability of glass house dwell-
ers covers this case.
It seems that the same might be
said of the Busrah mission project.
Here, as elsewhere, charity begins at
home. The university, which admit-
tedly has not the means to provide
for sanitary conditions among the stu-
Display Poor Taste.
The action of the Women's League
in voting to sell post cards with the
picture of Dr. James B. Angell upon
it during Anniversary week to make
money, displays extremely poor taste.
That this organization should make
money is perfectly legitimate, but
when they use the President-Emeritus
as a medium for this purpose they
overstep the border line of decency.
Another picture would serve the same
ends and would not display such
