THE MICHIGAN DAILY
i - ,
THE BEST DRESSED MEN
have their clothes made-to-measure.
It is not a fallacy to say that clothes
reveal their origin even to the casual
observer. And there's an air of dis-
tinction to our clothes that can come
only from years of experience in tai-
loring garments. We have satisfied
your friends, why not you?

TEACHER OR SCHOLAR?
In spite of the constant criticism
of higher education one of the most
obvious and fundamental departments
of the educational system has almost
wholly escaped notice. The regulation
of policy by trustees who are invari-
ably business men, the metamorpho-
sis of the president from the scholar
to the financial agent, the congenital
frivolity of the modern youth w hoj
prefers dancing and athletics to
study, all these things are blamed for
the 'admitted fact that only about 10
per cent of students learn anything
commensurate to the money spent on
the process. The social value of a
college education is undeniable, but
the educational value is problem-
It is the teacher who has escaped
notice. Americans have been curi-
ously content to trust education to
scholars. As a novelist recently wrote,
instructors are chosen from those
who know how to learn instead ot
those who know how to teach.
The degree of doctor of philosophy,
of master of arts, of bachelor of laws
or of literature, especially when suf-
fixed by some such impressive Latin
abbreviation as Oxon, is considered
proof positive that its possessor is
an admirable teacher. To have dis-
covered some new gas or to have
written some erudite book is often
sufficient to obtain an impressive fac-
Conversation with these erudite
and valuable gentlemen will convince
any one that their interest is not .in
teaching. They are still interested in
gaining the approval of other erudite
professors, but they are rarely- in-
terested in gaining the approval of
the students. They are, most of them
franky bored with students. And
the students are, quite as frankly,
bored with them.
The student rarely finds more than
one or two men in his four years
who make him feel that using the
mind is a pleasant occupation. And
if he is acute, he will perceive that
faculty members who do love to teach
suffer from the disapprobation of
their fellow professors. It does not
do for a professor to become too
popular with the students. He is im-
mediately suspected of some sort of
quackery. His attempts to understand
the students are interpreted as syco-
phancy. He should be interested in
research and scholarly attainment.
So preoccupied are many o our
higher educationalis ts kith this sort
of thing that they deliver their lec-
tures, often the same ones year after
year, reluctantly stealing a few hours
a week from their more important
work of learning.
Somehow we suspect that if facul-
ties were to examine themselves they
would find a splendid aggregation of
scholars, but of teachers scarcely
one. Perhaps this is one reason why
the modern college youth is inter-
ested in frivolous affairs.

IF GENIUS CAME TO MICHIGAN
Ever since universities began a
flourishing forward movement, there
has been a retarding factor of class
room strangulation constantly on the
job. It springs from a false concep-
tion of democracy, and is common in
practically every university, college
and school. In Michigan it can be
seen when several back-row stud-
ents in a class grin at each other or
laugh at the expression of some or-
iginal idea; when necks are craned
at the quizmaster's book when he is
recording the recitation just com-
pleted; when students make it hard-
er for lecturers by impolitely pulling
out watches, yawning unrestrainedly
or talking sotto voce; when sections
of the class are gazing seriously
through the windows or at the ceil-
ing and when the professor's retreat
at the close of the hour is choked by
superfluous and affected questioning.
Too many of the keen minded stud-
ents at Michigan are out after cam-
pus popularity, and for that reason
feel that they have to recite modestly
and conservatively. The exchange
of critical looks amonghthe rest of
the class is so overwhelming that few
dare or care to resist its strength.
Freshman classes form the neces-
sary transition between prep school
and college ideals, but after the first
year there is an opportunity for any
one to add something vital to the dis-
cussion by talking more frequently
-that is providing they are terse and
to the point. Of course those who
"throw the bull" are never welcome,
but a whirr of clearly stated and or-
iginal ideas are what are wanted and
needed. Certain seniors, who have
grasped campus honorary titles and
discovered the futility of these as an
end, occasionally bring into the sun-
light, originality which has been bur-
ied for three years. Men like these are
becoming the life of many discussion
Our much heralded democracy is
often acting as a mire rather than
the firm ground necessary for a good
start. In the light of this criticism
it is interesting to think what would
happen if a genius, should come to

PROFESSOR CROSS NEW BOOK
"Hi ry of England and Greater
Britain" Favorably Reviewed
by the "Dial"
Prof. Arthur L. Cross' book on the
"History of England and Greater
Britain" receives a very favorable
review in the issue of January 6 of
The reviewer calls attention to the
fact that the book is designed for the
use of advanced- classes in colleges
and universities, and also to the re-
cent date (Feb., 1914,) to which the
history is carried.
The conclusion of the review is as
"The book aims at the presenta-
tion of facts in the light of their sig-
nificance and historical succession,
land makes slight attempt to ap-
praise events or interpret the spir-
it and character of the English people.+
It is probably .the most satisfactory
