quently, university spirit. It amounts
in fact, to such a congregation, as is
a very direct medium for the creation
of concerted feeling. But chiefly, the
value therefrom arises from the
chance afforded to guide the growth of
the students individually. To the pro-
fessional, as well as to the literary
department come men with all sorts of
aims, and all degrees of outlook. There
are those of serious purposes, of whom
the grind so called is a typical though
perhaps exaggerated specimen. For
these, intent on mastering every de-
tal, certain we l aselected topics,
scarcely appropriate in a class, room,
can be the means of arousing them
from their near sighted absorption in
the particular, to a broader view of
the general range of things.
For those who are in attendance
here by way of diversion, other dis-
cussions may be the instruments for
inspiring a soberer realization of the
occasion. To this end, observations
upon view points, mental processes,
human needs and potentialities are
more persuasive factors than intinate
study of a few dry facts in a limited
field.
Although it has not been the ac-
cepted function of a university to have
to instigate this sincerity of purpose,
yet in light of the popular attitude to-
wards colleges, whereby many attend
because it is the proper thing to do,
there arises a new region for service
that may well be entered. In several
instances, notable results of exactly
this character followed an informal
talk of the dean of the law depart-
ment, given to the members of the
junior class, not long ago.
Too Few Members Vote.
More than sixteen hundred students
hold membership in the Michigan Un-
ion. Saturday morning the annual
election of officers for the ensuing
year took place. Barely two hundred
ballots were cast. The new mnen were
elected by the voice of hardly an
eighth of the membership.
The reason for this lack of inter-
est in the elections is not easily dis-
cernible. Enough candidates of var-
fed abilities and association were pre-
sented to the student body for election
to have made the contest an exceed-
ingly warm one, Yet only two hun-
dred cast their ballots.
The Michigan Union is the big idea
at Michigan. Through it alone the
university will be able to realize her
ideal of complete and broad democ-
racy. With this fact in view, it is a
poor reflexion upon the student body
that so little interest is shown when
the personnel of the governing body
for an entire year is at stake.
COSMOPOLITAN CANOE UP
RIVER TODAY FOR PICNIC,
The disciples of Gandharva will
sing the songs of India on the bosom
of the Huron this afternoon. Com-
mingled with these ancient chants
will be heard the minor strains of
sampan pilots, as the men of the Ce-
lestial republic propel their canoes
over the water, The Cosmopolitans
of the university will hold their annual
picnic, and all will be there, men of
the five continents will amalgamate
in social harmony, and will vie with
one another in making the occasion a
feast of melody.

An Engineering Idea.
From what The Michigan Daily has
observed of the Wednesday assem-
blies of the freshman engineering
class, we are becoming of the opinion
that the practice is one worthy of
adoption in the other departments as
well. Briefly this assembly is a gath-
ering of the entire class at weekly in-
tervals, to listen to more or less in-
formal talks by their dean, members
of their faculty, and, occasionally,
from prominent students. In a way
it is a substitute for chapel usual in
smaller schools, but which the foun-
dation and magnitude of our universi-
ty render impolitic and infeasible
here.
