Too frequently the Council has
been accused of attracting men of
small calibre and giving them a
chance to put something after their
names in the Michiganensian. This
might have been true at one time,
though we are inclined to doubt it
now. Last year it managed to ac-
complish some things in spite of an
overwhelming disbelief in its capa-
bilities. This year, with much of
the adverse pressure removed, it has
handled itself very creditably. The
coming semester holds still more
Henry C. Rummel has been selected
to guide the organization for the en-
suing term. To our way of thinking
no better man could have beenm
found. We donot say this because
he has been a prominent man on the
campus; not because he has a pleas-
ing personality; not because he can
keep a premise, but because he has
learned to think in terms of the Uni-
versity and subordinate himself to
A FREE DEBATE
Tonight in Hill Auditorium Michi-
gan meets Northwestern in the first
intercollegiate debate of the year.
Our traditions in this line of endeav-
or are as highly valued as in any
other line. The men who shoulder the
responsibility of keeping the record
bright have spent long, grinding
hours in preparation for the struggle.
They deserve the best of support.

year little cards were given out with

Thousands of young people are ask-
ing: "Can I get into college?" It
would be well for them to ask: "Wil

About 25 per cent of those ,who
enter each year drop out before they
are graduated. In some small, com-
pact colleges only 10 per cent drop
In large, loosely knit institutions
sometimes 50 perycent disappear be-
fore the coveted diploma is reached.
They enter college full of life and
hope, and theyfall out baffled and
dejected. Why is this?
It may be for excellent or unavoid-
able causes. It may be because of
ili-health or financial disaster or the
pressure of home obligations. It may
also be because of pernicious friend-
ships or false ideals formed in the
freshman year. It may be because
the college itself neglects the in-
dividual student and leaves him to
sink or swim alone.
But the chief trouble is that the
average boy is not "prepared" for
college. He does not stay in college
because he has no staying power, no
capacity for attention, no ability to
I met in the college library a
student from one of our best New
England families, bending over a
book, weary and bored.
"How are you getting on?" I asked.
He answered: "How in the world does
a man spend a whole hour looking
at one book? After ten minutes I find
myself looking out of the window?"
"How old are you?"
"Nineteen, and cannot concentrate
for one hour? You ought to have
learned that," I said, "when you were
twelve years of age."
Soon after he "dropped out" and is
now wandering over New England
looking for a job where success can
be won without attention-and there
is no such job.
The trouble with many boys when
they enter college is not that they
have bad habits, but that they have
no habits at all. Not that they are
going wrong, but that they are, not
They are versatile, attractive and
They cannot focus their minds for

They are distracted minds, bundles

They know a hundred things on the

same age, and yet do not know the
meaning of work.

every one who wants to enter
college that "preparedness" is vastly
ire than cramming down the lan-
gt ages and mathematics.
To be prepared means to have ac-
quired a real ambition. It means the
power to say "no" to foolish things
and "yes" to the big things of life.
It means to possess a backbone that
is more than a "chocolate eclair." It
means getting done with "kiddish-
ness' and resolving. to play the man.

The other thing we can do is to in-
sist that the college itself shall take
better care of the freshmen. All the
colleges are now waking up to the
wate and wreckage of the freshman
y ar. In different ways we are all
attacking the same problem.
At Harvard the remedy is offered
through freshman dormitories, practi-
cally scgregating the freshman class.
At Princeton the remedy is found in
a system of preceptors, each one hav-
ing a squad of five or six students
under his personal guidance.
At Amherst it is proposed to open
to the freshmat'n courses in economics,
which will lead them out of "prep.
school studies" into the discussion of
