Rules of Last Year's Events to Form
Basis for Conduct of
1916 Regatta
The newly elected officers of the
Michigan Boat club will hold a meet-
ing next Sunday afternoon at the
Union, when they will discuss the
date and general arrangements for
the 1916 regatta. They plan to follow
in most particulars the Boat club
regatta of last year, but there are
several new featuresrbeing planned to
add to the effectiveness of the events.
The crews from Detroit and Grand
Rapids will again be secured for the
four and eight-oared races, while the
canoe races and the swimming and
diving contests will be between Mich-
igan students as usual. A chairman
and a definite committee will be se-
lected at the meeting Sunday to take
care of the particulars of the regatta.
The new officers are; Commodore,
Robert Collins, '17E; vice commodore,
Lee Watson, '17; secretary, Wm. Adams
'17; treasurer, George Scheible, '17E;
first ensign, Louis A. Arentz, '17;
second ensign, Verne E. Burnett, '17;
third ensign, H. Gray Muzzy, '17. The
date of the regatta will be given out
within a week or 10 days.

of 'country!"
I then asked, "Why should I be pat-
riotic?" He was still more surprised,
told me he was sorry for me; that
patriotism must be felt; that reason-
ing could not make anyone patriotic.;
A more precise definition of patriot-
ism? As on some earlier . occasion1
when I listened to Professor William
H. Hobbs as he played upon our emo-
tions with his magic words "patriot-
ism" and "preparedness," I must needsI
content myself with that explanation
-a feeling. And feelings, psycholo-
gists tell us, are, or tend to be, quiteI
indefinable, and, upon analysis, dis-
Nevertheless, the magic continues to
work its spell. One preparedness talk
follows another; day after day we are
compelled, as we sit in the class room,
to listen to this appeal to our feelings
--not to our intellect. Perhaps theI
"preparedness faculty" is fairly well
agreed that we have no intellect. And
then again there may be a De Barral
lurking somewhere in the woodpile.
Professor Hobbs has been good en-
ough to favor us with considerable in-
formation upon the subjects, "nrili-
tary training" and "preparedness."
He has told us that if we are patriotic
we will train, we will prepare. Per-t
haps he can tell me more definitely
what patriotism is. Is it love for
the government, Professor Hobbs? (I
would rather live under the paternal
socialism of the hated Kaiser than
under our own corrupt, inefficient gov-
ernment)- Perhaps he will also tell
me why I should be patriotic, if it is
for some great good I have received
from America, or because of the un-
limited natural resources of AmericaE
(in the hands of Wall street).

To the Editor, Michigan Daily:--
I note in your issue of Sunday that
"the noted Arctic explorer," Dr. Fred-
erick A. Cook, is to appear in vaude-
ville at the Majestic theatre on Thurs-
day, the day following Admiral
Peary's appearance in the Hill audi-
torium. What prompts this communi-
cation is your reporter's suggestion
that "these two contestants for Arctic
exploration honors will indulge in
some statements concerning their
famous controversy." Your reporter
seems to be unfamiliar with the
"famous controversy," or he would
know thatrAdmiral Peary has through-
ot preserved a dignified silence up-
on the entire matter after submitting
his evidence for the fake polar jour-
ney of Dr. Cook. His charges have
been fully confirmed by the verdict
of the University of Copenhagen, the
tribunal before which Dr. Cook elect-
ed to be judged, which on December
21.1909, rendered its verdict after full
examination of the facts. The Cook
fiasco has not only been ignored by
Admiral Peary in his public utter-
ances, but even in private conversa-
tion he does not allude to the matter.
The subjeot of his address in the Hill
auditorium is not polar exploration
but national defense, and he will dis-
cuss in particular the aerial Boast
patrol, to which he is giving almost
undivided attention, and on Aiich ac-
count he will hurry away to New
York the night of his address.
The public is not as well informed
as it should be concerning Dr. Cook's
pretensions, which for a time misled
the scientific society of note. and a
number of scientific men, including
General Greely and Dr. Rasmussen,
well known Arctic explorers. Later,
however, both these explorers, repudi-
ated Dr. Cook and today no geographic
society or explorer of reputation be-
lieves in him. General Greely now
"The claims of Dr. Cook of reach-
ing the North Pole have been thor-
oughly discredited by his failure to
furnish to the University of Copen-
hagen his promised proofs of such
Dr. Rasmussen says:
"When I saw the observations, I
realized that it was a scandal. The
documents which Dr. 'Cook sent to
the university are most impudent.
It is the most childish sort of at-
tempt at cheating."
Captain Amudsen, who attained the1
South Pole and who was a ship-mate
of Dr. Cook's on the "Belgica Antarc-
tic Expedition," said of him:
"There was absolutely nothing in3
these alleged observations of Dr.
Cook. It was all fake and could
have deceived nobody. Thus, in
sorrow was I forced to the conclu-
sion that my old comrade was ly-

deep chagrin at the deception whicht
had been practiced upon it, repudiat-
ed Dr. Cook absolutely; and when a
year later I met several of the pro-
fessors at Copenhagen, their evident
humiliation over the deception was al-
most pitiful.
The public generally seems not tol
realize that the North Pole deception
was not the first, but the third fake
put forward by Dr. Cook. The first in
point of time has, I think, hardly been
noticed in the newspapers; but was
told me by Sir Ernest Shackleton, now

British Antarctic Expedition. It was
reported to him by Lieut. Adrian de
Gerlache, who commanded the "Belgi-
ca Expedition" to the Antarctic in the
years 1897-99, of which expedition
Cook was a member. While the ship
was frozen in to the "pack," Cook was
sent according to his commander on
a journey over the ice to explore in
certain directions. , He returned at the
appointed time bringing an elaborate
report, though it was later discovered
that this report had been written in a
safe retreat hidden from the ship by
an iceberg.
The second deception of Dr. Cook
which came to public notice was the
alleged ascent of Mt. McKinley, an
Alaskan peak some 21,000 feet in alti-
tude. Cook's published .photograph in
Harper's Magazine alleged to be the
summit of Mt. McKinley, revealed
snow conditions which to one iamilhar

Cook's "North Pole" expedition
seems to have been financed by his
backer, John R. Bradley, in whose
yacht the expedition sailed to the
Arctic. Bradley had kept a gambli'ng
