Faculty Says Attention to Real Prob-
lem is Necessary.
(The Daily Assumes no Responsibility
for sentiments expressed in con-
Editor, Michigan Daily:
The inspectors of the S. L. A. have
sought counsel and support from the
representative members of the faculty.
Were this an ideal university, really
in touch with the social movements of
the day, such backing would silence
all complaint. There might, indeed,
be surprise that a member of the fac-
ulty of the law department endorsed
the appearance on our lecture plat-
form of a man indicted for kidnapping.
But we might remind ourselves that
this was but an expression of his well-
known unconventional outlook.
Since, however, we are in an imper-
feet world, where mistakes are made
even by authorities appointed to de-
cide a question because of their inti-
mate knowledge of the facts involved,
it should not be taken amiss by those
interviewed if their off-hand state-
ments are not accepted by all parties
interested. We who conscientiously
dissent from the opinions expressed,
wish to state the real problem as it
appears to. us.
Aside entirely from the question as
to Detective Burns' ability to enter-
tain and instruct, in regard to which
we have grave doubts, let us ask, is
it generous, is it politic, for a state
university to give countenance to a
man whom the laboring people, organ-
25,000,000 in number), have repudia-
ted by protest, after protest, and by
whom they feel themselves so deeply
He is advertised as the "leading fig-
ure in the McNamara case." His most
unenviable position and conduct in
that case are known to all who have
kept in touch with its development;
and should have been considered by
the members of the faculty who were
interviewed. We must confess tha.t
their ignorance in matters connected
with the larger social movements in
the United States today is disappoint-
ing to one who cherishes a reasonable
ideal of the broad interests and intel-
lectual alertness of the educated man.
Has specialism robbed the college pr-
fessor of his sense of social responsi-
The facts are open to all who Wish
to consult them. We have felt it ad-
visable to call attention to the real
problem, so that more mature judg-
ments founded upon facts and upon
the larger issue involved 'may be
formed by the faculty and by the stu-
dent body.
President Will Return Today.
President Hutchins will return to-
day from Minneapolis where he at--
tended the inaugural exercises of
President Vincent of the University
of Minnesota and also the meeting of
the Association of State Universities
held at the same place.
The University of Washington has
established a hospital service for its
undergraduates costing them fifty
cents a year.
Catching a greased pig is one of the
contests between the freshmen and
sophomores of the agricultural col-
lege at Wisconsin..
