A Real Awakening.
It takes a long time for a big idea
to get started at Michigan and a long-
-er time, after its inception, before the
student body takes hold readily and
lends its entire support to the project.
This is true of the Michigan Union.
As said before in these columns, the
Michigan Union is the Big Idea at
Michigan. Through the realization of
this idea, Michigan will come into her
heritage of plain democracy, of which
she is the proud mother. It is only
by the general and continued support
of the student body that this can be
realized. Up to the present time there
has been much talk and much work,
but the first overbalancgd the second.
But the spirit has changed and there
has been an awakening within the
last semester that is surprising as well
as very welcome.
This has been evidenced in no way
better than by the action upon the
part of the seniors in subscribing to
life memberships. From a business
viewpoint, this is not a good invest-
ment. From other standpoints,
such as loyalty to their Al-
ma Mater, care for the future of the
general student body, and the broad-
ening of Michigan's horizon, it is the
best investment these graduates will
The money from these life member-
ships is not to be used for current ex-
penses but will go into a special fund
for the new club house. Heretofore it
- did not seem so evident to the alumni,
and even to the observing graduate,that
the new clubhouse was so much desir-
ed. But the spirit shown by the sen-
go iors cannot fail but be impressive. To
e them has come the realization that the
Michigan Union is a big idea and that
it is here to stay.
This spirit is to be commended and
k it is to be hoped that the other de-
partments will show the same enthu-
siasm as the literary department. The
qo sacrifice is not going to bring any def-
inite returns in dollars and cents but
- the satisfaction of having done some-
thing big for the university and its
members ought to be sufficient recom-

Editor, The Michigan Daily.
The logical sense of the philosoph-
ical department, to which you have
referred in such complimentary terms,
may be, no doubt is, obscured in me.
At any rate, I have been vexed to no-
tice several leaders this year that
might have been blue-pencilled with
great advantage. The leader of yes-
terday marks a culmination, in my
judgment. For, while difficulties do
arise with regard to the free use by
mdergraduates of Richard Harding
Davis and other distinguished moral-
ists, as they arise with respect to the
Bible and Shakespeare, there can be
no question about the "valuable sci-
entific works" of Havelock Ellis. You
will find Mr. Ellis' "The New Spirit"
on the shelves. On the other hand, it
is in the highest degree undesirable,
as it is utterly unnecessary, that un-
dergraduates should have access to
works on abnormal psychology. Nay
more, mature men, whose work lies in
other fields, would do well to eschew
such reading. The reasons are too
plain to require further comment. It
may not be out of place to repeat an
old, and wise saying-fools step in
where angels fear to tread. And it
may interest you to be made aware
that I myself have never opened the
works to which you refer. Human
wreckage exists; mercifully, we keep
it in asylums and do not parade it on
our streets to be gaped at by every
passer-by. The same holds of books.

LYCEUM TRY-OUTS SHOULD
SEE MR. HOLLISTER SOON.
Although the actual try-outs for the
Lyceum club do not take place until
next fall, all those who are consider-
ing trying for that body should see Mr.
R. D. Hollister before examinations.
Membership in the organization is
based on the satisfactory delivery of
some selection, and it is partly in re-
gard to the nature of these selections
that Mr. Hollister wishes to confer
with the students.
