Organizations of Men From Other
Lands Show Michigan's
The broadening influence which the;
foreign students have exercised uponI
communities in America where they
have studied can hardly be overesti-
mated. Educational institutions in
America are especially fortunate in at-
tracting young men and women from
countries fa ilistant. Our visitors
have certainly laid before our Ameri-
can students accounts of the contribu-
tion which their respective countries
have made to the civilization of the
world, and compelled from them a
sympathetic consideration.
That the various foreign organiza-
tions on the campus have proved a
source of great interest and help to
our own and foreign students there
can be no doubt. A stranger in a
strange land, he is- accorded a hearty
welcome in one or more clubs. He
finds there a catholicity of sympathies
and the best sort of fellowship pre-
vailing. Michigan has become one of
the largest international seats of
learning, and about 20 nations are
contributing 150 young men and
women to the student body.
The first international club on the
campus sprang into existence in 1906,
banding together students from all
countries in the organization of the
Michigan chapter of the Corda-
Fratres Association Cosmopolitan
clubs founded by Kiyo S. Inul, the
celebrated Japanese peace advocate.
This infant society had ten charter
members. Human brotherhood was
the watchword; and any person from
any country was eligible, irrespective
of color, race, creed, religious or po-
litical affiliation. It has now a mem-
bership of 90, and has become an im-
portant factor in caiipus affairs.
The Chinese Students' club began
its first pulsation in 1909, when its
founder and first president, N. Han,
formulated plans and drafted a con-
stitution to promote good fellowship
and comradeship among the Chinese
students here. Shortly after its or-
ganization, the club affiliated itself
with the central body known as the
Chinese Students' Alliance in North
America, which today has a network
of more than 30 branches extending
from Harvard in the East to Stanford
in the West. The local chapter, which
has a membership of 59 this year,
holds the record for being the largest
of all similar clubs.
The Polonia, or Polish literary so-
ciety, was organized in 1909 with
Prof. S. J. Zowski as one of its charter
members. The organization is of a
social and literary nature, and is di-
rectly connected with the alumni and
merchants in the city of Detroit. The
members who may be in financial diffi-
culties are supported by a society
termed the Self-aid society. This year
19 Poles are enrolled in the univer-
sity, and all are members of the club.
The Armenian Students' club, which
is a branch of the Armenian Students'
Association in America, was organiz-
ed in 1911. It has for its central ob-
ject the promotion of the idea of
brotherhood amongArmenian stuaents
throughout the country. It plans soon
to' establish a magazine which will
bind the members mtre closely to-
gether, and through whose columns
current problems of national inter-
est may be freely discussed. The club
has a mmbership of eleven.
The Latin-American has compara-

tively a recent birth, but is neverthe-
less becoming an important organi-
zation in social affairs. It consists
of 25 Spanish-speaking students, who
believe their mission to be not only
for their own social advancement, but
also for the dispelling of international
ignorance and misunderstanding.
The Japanese Students' club is an-
other recent organization. It is pure-
ly social in nature, and is perhaps the
most unique and democratic club on
the campus. An interesting feature
is that the executive board consists,

froni other responsibilities. The fel-
lowship, which was founded in honor
of Alice Freeman Palmer, one of Mich-
igan's most brilliant representatives,
has been granted to a large number
of women each year, and may be used
for study abroad, at any American
university or for private research
work. Applications may be made up to

last summer in the Olympic games.
Harvard-According to the statis-
tics of the employment bureau of Har-
vard University, 25 per cent of the<
students at Harvard are doing some
sort of remunerative work to supportc
themselves in college. During the
last year, these students earned $107,-
000. Through the bureau a total of
2,455 positions were filled.
Chicago-Blue toques will distin-
guish all of the juniors on the campus

Arrangements have been completed
by the managers of the Yale and Har-
vard track teams for the proposed
dual athletic games with the com-
binied teams of Oxford and Cambridge
in the Harvard stadium, and the event
now needs only ratification by the
English authorities, to assure the
American colleges a visit from the
Britons. Pending the acceptance of
the agreement, the managers of the
two teams have declined to make pub-
lic the dates for the games, but it is
said on authority that a date within
two weeks of the intercollegiate
championship will be selected. This
would make the date about the middle
of June.

Illinois-A new year's gift in the
form of a full fledged medical college
was given to the University of Illinois.
Alumni have been at work obtaining
the money.
Two unique letters recently received
by Dean Bates show the purposes of
the university looked upon in a novel
light. The first was from a boy, rela-
tive to his entering the law depart-
ment. He announced that he was a
good shortstop and a grand quarter-
back, and he wanted to enter on the
strength of these two attributes.
The second was from a colored edu-
cator of the south, who asked the dean
to settle some knotty problems which
he had run up against in the admin-
istration of his school. In closing his
letter he said, "Thanking you in ad-
vance for the courtesy, in the joy of

spraying a human orchard."

Michigan leads the Badger institu-
tion in a singular manner according to
the result of certain studious re-
searches. Following are the statistics
of students bearing the common sur-
names in Wisconsin as compared with
the University of Michigan: Wiscon-
sin has 26 Smiths, Michigan 57; Wis-
consin 29 Johnsons, Michigan 35; Wis-
consin 22 Millers, Michigan 23; Wis-
consin 19 Browns, Michigan 31; Wis-
consin' 21 Jones, Michigan 17; Wiscon-
sin 17 Taylors, Michigan 13; Wiscon-
sin 16 Andersons, Michigan 14; Wis-
consin 15 Thompsons, Michigan 15;
Wisconsin 13 Lewis, Michigan 16;
Wisconsin 11 Moores, Michigan 11.
Schweitzberger is the longest Mich-
igan name, containing 14 letters; Hor-
braszewski and Schnellbacher are
second with 13 letters each; third
come O'Schaughnessy and Neuchear--
lams with 12.
Two Chinese students carry the
shortest names Ku and Sy. Wiscon-
sin also has a student with a name of
14 letters, Knechenmeister, the sec-
ond longest is Schlatthauer with 12.
Li and Ma, also Chinese students,
bring up the rear for Wisconsin.
Karl Bitter, executor of the bronze
bas-relief of Dr. Angell which graces
the entrance of Memorial hall, is. at
work on a bronze statue of Dr. An-
drew Dickson White, former profes-
sor at the University of Michigan and
first president of Cornell. The statue,
which is to be of heroic size, will be
placed in front of the Gladwin Smith
hall at Cornell, Dr. White was pro-
fessor of history and English litera-
ture at Michigan from 1857 to 1863
when he left to enter the United States
Senate as a member' from New York.
He resigned in 1867 to accept the
presidency of Cornell. The statue
will represent Dr. White in academic

ing the university in the state.

Room 207 West Hall.
Comparative study of great artists'
conceptions is highly interesting. In
fact if one pursues some of the more
common subjects as Professor Scott
has done, he finds it quite an exten-
sive task to collect the various con-
ceptions of any one subject which have
been intrusted to canvas.
A little art museum in itself, is Pro
fessor Scott's room in West Hall.
Within its limits he has collected
copies of this and that from the cor-
ners of the old world and the new.
Many of these cuts possess an es-
pecial value in that they have come as
personal gifts from friends and ac-
quaintances in the famous art cen-
In his study of comparative con-
ceptions, Professor Scott has collected
an interesting series of conceptions
of the "Fates." There are paintings
by Mrs. Cox, Symonds, and Goya and
a picture of a group in the British
museum supposed to represent the
same conception.
On the walls of this curio room is
also a collection of Dante portraits.
Baraud's "Crucifixion" also hangs
nearby. There is an original etching
of the "Canterbury Pilgrims" as crude
and inartistic as mind can imagine.
The north wall bears an untouched
photograph of one of the Shakespeare
portraits. It is an exceptional print.
These copies and many others are
used by Professor Scott's classes in
work in observation and description
and many of them have been copied
for use in his various books.
Twelve hundred dollars is the
amount estimated to cover the total
expenses of the extension lecture
course this year, according to the re-
ports made to the oratory board re-
cently. Besides the speakers brought
here, this includes the expenses of
sending Michigan's debating teams
and orators to the various contests,
and providing the testimonials.
The expenses for the balance of the
year are placed at $844.35. To meet
this there is about $400 in the treas-
ury, and R. E. Olds, of Lansing, and
N. M. Kaufman, of Chicago, have do-
nated testimonials of $300 and $150,
It is expected that the association
will be able. to pay off part of its in-
debtedness, which amounts to $400.
