PICK PLANS FOR NEW LIBRARY
Budget of $69,391.03 Approved by the
Board for Summer School
Compulsory military training at
Michigan will not be finally decided
oni at present, according to action tak-
en by the board of regents in referring
the matter to a committee of four at
their meeting yesterday, morning.
The new committee, composed of
Regents Hubbard of Houghton, Han-
chett of Grand Rapids, Bulkley of De-
troit, and Sawyer of Hillsdale, are to
make the investigations necessary for
a question of such import and report
for definite action at the next meet-
All of the regents expressed them-
selves individually as being in favor'
of the national program of military
preparedness, but the reason given
for their action was that they felt
that a matter of such importance to
the university as compulsory military,
training needed more thorough inves-
tigation than they could give it in
Pick Library Plans.
At the afternoon meeting of the
board, the final decision was made as
to the plans for the new library, and
instructions will be sent to Architect
Kahn to develop the specific plans for
the building pictured by the architects
sketch which was favored.
A budget of $69,391.53 for the sum-
mer school of 1916 was approved, thus
providing for a slight increase over
the work of this nature that was done
last year. New courses in Semetics,
under Professor Waterman, in Spanish
to meet the increased demand for
knowledge of this language in this
country; in English, a course in busi-
ness corresllondence for teachers and
in economics were added to the sum-
mer curriculum. Provision was made
for renewing the course in fine arts
under Prof. H. R. Cross, as well as ad-
ding to the instruction in American
history by the appointment of Prof.
H. E. Bolton of the University of Cali-
fornia. Work in library methods was
strengthened 'by the appointment of
Mr. A. S. Root of Oberlin as an addi-
tional non-resident lecturer, the main
work continuing to be under Dr. W.

CHARLES L. GOLDSTEIN, '17,
VICTOR IN CANDLE CONTEST
Charles L. Goldstein, '17, emerged
the victor in the candle contest at the
Zal-Gaz Grotto bazaar, last week in
Weinberg's Coliseum. Wilkinson's
second-hand store had offered a prize
to the one who could guess most ac-
curately the time that it would take
for a large two-foot candle to burn
out. Goldstein estimated that it
would take 55 hours, 38 minutes and
14 seconds for the candle to complete-
ly burn out. The exact time that it
took was 55 hours, 42 minutes and 4
seconds. Goldstein received a hand-
some leather travelling bag as a prize
for his good guess.

Announcement has just been made
of a contribution to the Michigan Un-

ger, dedicated to the memory of her
brother, the late Neil W. Snow, '02,
Michigan's most popular athletic hero.
Among the former Michigan athletes
none is mentioned at the Union head-
quarters as often as Neil Snow who
won more "M's" than any other man
who ever went to Michigan. A large
picture of Snow now occupies a prom-
inent place in the main room of the
Another important contribution to
the Union fund announced lately was
one for $2,500 cash, presented by Jo-
seph Boyer, president of the Bur-
;oughs Adding Machine Co.
Mr. Boyer is not an alumnus of
Michigan, but said in making his gift
that all citizens of Michigan should
do all in their power to assist the
present Union campaign, that being,
in his opinion, one of the most im-
portant undertakings ever begun by
the state university. ,
Detroit's contribution to the Union
fund is now almost $175,000, and of
that sum $25,000 has been contributed
by public spirited men, who have
never attended Michigan.

PROF, FRIDAY OUTLINES
Says Expert and Cultural Taining is
Subordinate to That of
"The Function of the University in
a Democracy," was the subject of a
speech made by Prof. David Friday,
of the economics department, given
last night at the membership dinner
at the Union.
"How to organize a university to
carry out its function as a democracy,"
said Professor Friday, "is a pressing
problem. Democracy means opportu-
nity. It means the giving of every
man a chance. It is certain that
America is trying to succeed in this.
ideal. It is certain that endeavors are
being made to give the lower classes
"The university is considered a
place where one gets expert training
in some vocational field. A man comes
to the university to get expert train-
ing in some particular line and by
means of it to raise himself from one
class to another. Expert training is
the function of the university; the ac-
quiring of a special line of knowledge
in a special field.
"But an entirely different function
of the university is quite as import-
ant. Cultural ideals, art, music, lit-
erature, are just as important a func-
tion of the university.
"It is the function of the university
to train men to idealize life; to make
one ideal, one pursuit in life greater
than any other. This is where the
university is weakest, where the stu-
dent body is weakest. A pig wollow-
ing in the mud is happy. It is not
the attainment of happiness that is
important. It is how we make our-
selves happy that counts.
"But the development of expert
training and artistic ability is sub-
ordinate to the development of our
personality. That after all, men is
what counts most with you. We may
develop it by copying after other per-
sonalities. Perhaps the greatest thing
in education is the meeting of inspir-
ing and magnetic personalities. There
is no such thing as the development
of personality without.deep and heart-
"It is the function of the university
to develop expert capacity, artistic
ability and personality. The attain-
ment of these ideals will be to develop
a higher type of personality than has
ever before been produced. When this
ideal has been attained it will be the
great movement toward universal ed-
ucation that put universities, public
and private, into every part of the
country that was the particular cause
of that type of personality."

THAT PARIS MAY
VISITED ON TRIP
SHIP TO LAND AT STOCKHOLM;
PARTY THEN GOES TO COPEN-
HAGEN AND THE HAGUE
Lee E. Joslyn, '17, of Detroit, leaves
today as the unofficial undergraduate
representative of the University of
Michigan on Henry Ford's peace ship,
Oscar II. Joslyn received the follow-
ing telegram from Mr. Ford last night:
"Mr. Ford wishes me to cordially
invite you to accompany him as his
guest on the steamer Oscar II, leaving,
New York City December 4. Ticket
to New York is being arranged and
should be called for at station. Apply
to chief clerk of local court for pass-
port application at once.
"LOUIS P. LOCHNER,
"Secretary to Henry Ford."
Saturday the steamer Oscar II.
starts on a six weeks' trip to Europe
in an attempt to band the neutral na-
tions together in a league to bring
the warring peoples to peace. Joslyn,
as the university unofficial represen-
tative, will be required by the condi-
tions upon which he was invited to
become a, member of this party, to
write upon his return, a thesis which
will eibody what he has learned of
existing conditions, and in what way
they have been improved by the work
of the peace mission.
From New York the ship will go
directly to Stockholm, Sweden, and
after a stop there will proceed to
Copenhagen, Denmark, and thence to
The Hague. There is a possibility
that Paris will also be visited before
the ship turns again towards America.
New York, Dec. 1.-Shortly after
their receipt of dispatches here say-
ing that Holland would forbid Henry,
Ford's peace party, which leaves on
Saturday aboard the Oscar Ii., from

Joseph of Austria has accepted the
resignation of three of his ministers
and appointed successors. The re-

F. A. VANDERLIP SAYS THAT-
WAR PROFITS MAY STOP SOON
Claims That Europe Will be Unable
to Pay America for Her
New York, Dec. 1.-Frank A. Van-
derlip, president of the National City,
bank, told the American Society of
Woolen and Worsted Manufacturers at
the Waldorf today, that war profits
may stop before the war does, because
of the inability of Europe to pay us.
He frankly derided the notion that
just because the countries need ma-
terials they can buy them somehow or
other. He added that "business is
running in this country at full tilt
today and that our present problem is
to make ourselves independent of war
profits as soon as possible. That we
can do it if we try. There is enough
capital here to give every man a job
if only conditions can be brought
about to inspire enongh confidence in
"Increased pay affords no relief to
millions if wasteful products con-
tinues. The only way to ameliorate
the conditions of the masses is to
bring about larger and cheaper pro-
ducts of things needed."
