OUR TWENTY-THIRD BOW. :
Out of a confusion and profusion f
newly-cut copy paper, rusty type-
writers, and 'eager "cubs," The Mich-
igan Daily extends inky fingers to you
with best wishes and the same old
stereotyped welcome. Still thrilling
from its wonderful Seventy-Fifth birth-
day Anniversary, the University is al-
ready swinging down the last lal to-
ward a century of achievement. To
increase rather than retard that mo-
.mentum is the heritage-the new per-
sonnel of the University is to share,
and the responsibility it must shoul-
In its own small way, your studefA
newspaper hopes to meet its obliga-
tions and its duties, fairly and square-
ly. It will strive to make its news
columns bright as well as accurate,
and free from prejudice and coloring.
As in the past, its space is open to you
for your comment and criticism and
discussion. Editorially, it entertains
the same ambitions. Enemies will
not be welcomed, but will be expected.
If there are no critics at the close of
the year's administration, we will con-
sider the administration a failure. In
commending, suggesting, or condemn-
ing, as the occasion seems to demand,
we anticipate conflicts in opinion, but
expect a broad-minded effort to ex-
tract the grain of truth our position
As a major premise, we hope to
make our University a little better
and broader and grander, and in re-
turn for pledged fidelity to this cause,,
we beg indulgence for shortcomings

Hard Work Boosts Membership List
up Over 500 Mark.
Increased efficiency and well directed
advertising have had the same effect
in regard to membership in the Wom-
en's League as in the Union. With
the membership committee working
since last week Thursday, the mem-
bership has now reached a total of
over 500, as compared with 175, the
highest previous number.
"This is a phenomenal increase,"
stated Dean Jordan last evening, "but,
of course the league has been deserv-
ing and has worked hard, consequent-
ly the result is not entirely unexpect-
".We are more than pleased with
the increase; and yet we have hopes
that the number will be largely in-
creased before the campaign ends," de-
clared Winifred Mahon, the president
of the league.
I)R ALBRIGHT OF ARGENTINA

the Lick Observatory and for the past
four years an instructor at the Cordo-
va observatory in Argentina, has been

South America where he is directing
the work of perfecting a cooperation
scheme between the local station and

Dr. Harrison Standish Smalley, pro-
fessor of political economy,, is but a
matter of knowledge as yet, not ofl
comprehension. The significance of
his loss will deepen and intensify in
the days to come, for personalities
such as his can only gain in beauty
with time and the emphasis of ab-'
sence. The nation has lost a citizen
of its highest type; the University of
Michigan, a son who gave his every
ounce to, the upbuilding of her fame
and the instruction of her youth for
lives of service and usefulness in the
world beyond the campus. His work
has won him a high place in the field
of science; but he will gain his great-
est reward in the inevitable fruits of
