Michigan has her societies for the
men of personality and social ambi-

her athletes and her campus celebri-

Generally speaking, scholarship has
gone a begging in this money-worship-
ing America of ours.
An inscrutable American public has
no deep respect or enthusiasm for
scholarship, purely as scholarship;
for brains, purely as brains.
Brains that amass great for-
tunes, muscle that wins athletichpres-
tige, are America's shrines. What is
true of our larger public opinion is
true of the university thought.
Last spring, we read of an enthu-
siastic torch light parade at one of the.
German universities, in honor and ap-
preciation of a distinguished visiting
lecturer. Later, that same lecturer
came to Ann Arbor. He went unno-
ticed except by the newspapers and a
small coterie of learned enthusiasts.
Michigan was too busy celebrating a
victory of brawn and athletic cunning
to give any attention to a world-famed
writer and scholar. In deference to
public opinion the newspapers gave
him but passing attention. Quite a
Even our faculties have become pos-
sessed of the public mind. Herculean
efforts have been made to maintain a
respectable standing for scholarship
and learning, but at the same time to]
cater to the intellectual indifference
of the public. Each spring, we have
announced to us the selection of a
few shining students. Each spring
we have the best students of the class
singled out for us, but not as the best
students alone. The selections are
made with the added proviso, the bland
acknowledgment that the students
have been selected on a basis of schol-
arship and personality.
Why personality? Personality has
little to do with scholarship, in the ab-
stract. Personality is a desirable qual-

7. If you suffer from repeated at-
tacks of tonsillitis or quinsy, or have
adenoids, have the diseased tissue re-
moved at once.
The tonsils are two ovoid bodies, al-
most hidden in recesses, one on either
side of the throat, and like the appen-
dix, their function is not definitely
known. They are probably intended
to act as sentinels, guarding the body
against harmful germs.
The symptoms of tonsilitis are:
chills, fever, aching pains in the back
and limbs, and soreness of the throat,
causing difficulty in swallowing. Ex-
amination shows swollen, red tonsils
containing yellowish-gray spots. Us-

ually within -a week, these symptoms
grow less severe, but they leave the
patient very weak. This form of throat
infection cannot always be distin-
guished from diphtheria, except by ex-
amination of swabs taken from the
throat. Repeated attacks of tonsillitis
may lead to rheumatism, deafness or
diseases of- the heart.
Back of the nose there is normally
tosillar tissue, which often becomes
infected and gives rise to adenoid veg-
etations. A person with adenoids
breathes through the mouth and be-
comes rather dull or even stupid if the
condition remains a few years.
Students with adenoids complain of
incessant headaches and inability to
concentrate, and usually they are be-
low the average in their college work.'

A campaign has been started by the
Detroit association of Michigan alum-
nae for a third hall of residence, and-
the local committee is taking active
steps to aid the association by calling
in outstanding subscriptions and solic-
iting new ones.
Because this movement is of the ut-
most importance to the Michigan
women of the future, and since the
older alumnae are giving so generous-
ly of their money, time, and influence,'
the committee has expressed a hope
that all undergraduate women will al-
so lend their support. Every woman
is asked to use her influence during
the Christmas vacation to interest her
relatives and friends in the campaign,
and to come back prepared to con-
tribute at least 50 cents to the fund.
There are over eight hundred women
in the university; 50 cents from each
one would mean over four hundred
dollars; and no doubt there are par-
ents and friends whose generosity
would greatly increase this sum, if
their interest were aroused.
Contributions will be received by
the members of the committee, of
which Miss Louise Conklin, '14, is
chairman. Other members are: Mrs.
Jordan, Mrs. E. D. Kinney, Misses
Margaret Foote, '15, Alma Dumont, '16,
The Michigan alumnae association
of Washington has written to the wom-
en's league, asking that it be allowed
to do something in the way of supply-
ing books, magazines or furniture.
The league has requested that the as-
sociation take charge of the magazine
subscriptions for the reading room
in Barbour gymnasium.
The league bazaar, which was to be
held next Friday afternoon in Bar-
bour gymnasium, has been indefinitely
postponed, and in its place will be
given a regular league party, featured
by a short sketch entitled, "Christmas
in a Country School."
