DEBATING AND MUD THROWING
The student body shows all possible
,courtesy to a widely known and re-
spected speaker, especially ifle
comes as a guest of some university
organization. But when hie speas
for a bonus, and on a vaudeville
stage, and whenT he publicly assails
a local professor with violent words
and untenable logio, it is no longer a
question- of courtesy. The qiustioi is
partly one of whether or not univer-
sity opinion can treat the matter in
a big, good humored way, rebuffing
petty bravado with reasoned indf-
ference.
A few years ago it was pretty hard
to tell whether Dr. Cooks or Como-
dore Peary had the sounder claims to
discovering the North Pole. Pro-
le~rHobbs was one f the first wh
discredited Cock's claims. The proof
of time thus far has worked in such
a way that Peary is now a rear-admir-
al in the navy, and speaks before
thousands in the °Hill auditorium,
while Dr. Cook resorts to billboard
advertising for his talks at vaude-
villo houses.
Dr. Cook deserves credit for his
superlatively daring voyage, in which
lie undoubtedly did get somewhere
near to the north pole. But Profes-
sor Hobbs. the scientist, proved con-
clusively the impossibility of some of
the details which the doctor claimed
The professor Thursday night re-
fused to degrade himself in a free-for-
all of words with the explorer, and
treated the matter with a big indif-
ference at the moment the debate
[ceased, and degenerated into mnud-
th rowing.

Geo. S .Lasher, '11, of Kansas State
Normal College, at Emporia. Kas.,
Porter Graves, .'96, associated with
one of the Kansas City, Mo., high
schools, and A. F. Frazee., '12, of
Lowell, were visitors on the campus
yesterday, as was also Professor Sut-
ton of Texas university. All are pay-
ing short visits in the city, after at-
tending the convention of the Na-
tional Education association in De-
troit.
Lasher, who was on the editorial
staff of The Michigan Daily from 1908
to 1911, was in the Union opera dur-
ing those years, was a member of the
Eremites and Phi Alpha Tau, besides
holding a number of cuass offices. He
was formerly' assistant state super-
intendent of schools.
:Frazee has just been elected sup~er-
intendent of the Dowagiac schools.
Since graduating from the University
he has held a similar p~osition at LOW-
ell, Michigan.

The average mark in one was fifty-

Of course everybody is duly appalled
again over the abysmal ignorance of

Why not be appalied just once for

system must be harrowing to the st-
dent. No sooner does he get some
little decent rag1 over his mental a:-
edness than up bobs a profesor to
snatch it away.
We wish the test (qustins about.

We should like to sc how nar fifty-ih h dtr woaeaple
over the students could come. The
notion that, broadly speaking any-
body knows anything acuratly out-
side the special ble of work opn_
which his livelihood deends is an un-
warranted academic assumt ion. The.
things that all so-,aled oducted or
well-inforiped men know with approx-
imate exactness are astonishingly few-
in number. No doubt it would be quit
easy to framne fifty questions, satter-
ed over the feld of kowlede but
each one concerning a fact of prime
importance to mankind, that nt five
college professors out of a hundred
could answer correctly.
We do not think it is right to kee
pulling the poor student's clothes off
this way. If he does not know any-
thing. whose fault is it?

DISA9GREES WITH WODD
To Thle iEditor of the Michigan Daily:
General Wood and Admiral Peary
have come and gone, and apparently
the members of their audience are still
' spell bound," for as yet no one has
undertaken the refutation of the oh-
:ious fallacies in their argument.
One of the most fundamental of the
assumptions upon wvhichi these two
gentlenmen based their argument was
the false one that wars are inevitable,
that they. ares part and parcel of the
natural order and governed by laws
which do not differ materially from
the laws governing natural phenom-
ena. Let us examine, for example, the
answer of General wood to the "silly
question" "Againist whom is the Uni-
ted States to prepar?"ie said, in ef-
fect, "If you will get the captain of,
a Cunarder wAha is, refitting his ship
,in port to state what particular gale
of wind he is preparinhg againist, I
will tell you against whait nation we(
are to prepare.' Clearly' here is ani
argument from analogyi"; is. it a good
one? It is plainly evident that storms
are governed by laws which men as
yet cannot control. Is it. equally clear
th:at there is a similar natural law,
hihis equally incapable ofc,"(ontrol
by m--en, controllintg the recurrence of
that, phenomenon which we call wvar?
No one 'contends for the existence of

sl(ch a law,; wars are begun, continued
au-, endedy the conscious action of
me. -cectime comparison of the
preparationr of a sea- captain to meet
pos~ibkstorm s vith the prepoaration
o:= a n1ation1 to meet the possible conl-
tingncyof. war is thoroughly falla-
c ous and in this case calculated to
evade a pertinent question.
If one applies, to this ship analogy
anether of the fundamental assertions
of the speakers, the futility of its rea-
sonling becomes still more apparent.
They reiterated the assertion that "pre-
paredness" has no other aim than the
prevention of war.' Ask the Cunard,
captain if he expects to prevent storms
~by his preparations to meet them. His
answer will doubtless convince you
that in asking such a question you
are as foolish as the "sentimentalists"
who hope, in 'part at least, to prevent
w'ar by opposing "preparedness."
I have dealt with but one of the mnore
striking phases of the argument. This
glib -bit of reasoning from analogy,
however, by no means exhausts the
fallacies which appea~red in the course
of the addresses of these two gentle-
men. It is indeed to be regretted that
"preparedness" must comne before a
university audience wvith an appeal
based so largely on sentimernt and such
superficial reasoning as this.
