THE MICHIGAN DAILY
>usiness opportunities for young men,
hereby diverting them to the univer-
ties. In times of peace and prosperi-
y, it is stated, men desire immediate
echnical knowledge and a chance to
hare in business enterprise, while in
imes of social reorganization such as
he present, men turn more to the
>hilosophic and economic branches.
In contrast to the purely problem-
tical effects of the war on the univer-
ity, is the pressing need of European
ooks and chemicals, felt in almost ev-
ry department of the university. With
he supply of numerous chemicals of
oreign manufacture, essential to the
nedical, chemical, and pharmic depart-
ments, completely shut off, what to
.o for those articles is the baffling
uestion in those departments.
Medical and dental instruments,
rawing supplies, and engineering ap-
aratus are to be had at advanced pric-
s in this country, while those com-
ounds which go into the manufacture
d gunpowder and dynamite and those
hemicals produced only in Europe are
o be obtained nowhere at any price.
Busy students, and even lazy stu-
dents are not blessed with enough
spare time to read every current book
which bears a likely-sounding title..
Everyone has a vague desire to do
some good reading, everyone appreci-
ates that there is an occasional deserv-
ing new book, but few of us feel able
to spend, say, three hours every day
in discovering the white sheep in the
book world, when the odds are strong
that whole hordes of mediocre books
will bore and blunt us to every worthy
work that we come upon.
Under the heading "At the Library,"
in this column, recent books will be
summarily reviewed. Only those
books which, in the opinion of the stu-
dent critic, are of interest to students,
will be treated. No attempt will be
made to have the criticisms original
or striking; they will merely explain
in brief the subject matter, tone and
general quality of the book, without,
The latest fiction will be ignored, as
a rule. Late books, other than fiction,
will be included where the subject and
manner of treatment warrant. Most
of the books reviewed May be ob-
tained at the general library, under
the numbers given. Some may also
be had from the rhetoric library, the
engineering .library, and for a nominal
fee from the city library and the va-
rious renting collections in the book
and art stores.
"At the Library" is intended chiefly
for the student who does not read
much, and it will not fill the require-
ments of bookish persons. The latter
will probably find reviewed in this
column occasionally some book which
has not come to their attention, but in
the main, the works criticised will
have long been familiar to them. Sug-'
