THE COLLEGE MAN AND THE
FOR ALL DEPARTMENTS
New and Second-hand
No man can complete a college
course without acquiring some ability
to assimilate information from the
printed page. This faculty he applies
in his courses, but how often does he
fail to use his developed talent beyond
the pale of the curriculum.
What a contrast there is in the aver-
age college man's method of reading
a newspaper to his method o[ attack-
ing work required in a course. 'He usu-
ally glances at the headlines on the
first page and then, unless he belongs
to that small minority who have no
athletic interest, devours the main
items on the sporting page; next he
gl'ances over the headlines in the rest
of the paper, reading in full any items
of special interest to himself, regard-
less of their real moment. What in-
formation he does take in is not like-
ly to be retained long, because of the
usual absence of effort to remember
definitely and to co-ordinate rationally
what has been read.
How many undergraduates are there
who can trace clearly and concisely,
even without going much into detail,}
the main developments in the war?
How many can talk intelligently on
European relations during the war and
produce any real facts to back up their
statements? How many have at their
tongues' end much other important and
Familiarity with past events, prog-
ress, and philosophy, can have little
value for the man of today if his learn-
ing is wholly divorced from present-
day developments, if he does not use it
as a background for his own knowl-
edge, views and actions regarding
modern problems. With the college
man the remedy for his lack of per-
spective is not more timp, spent with
the newspaper, but the application to
his newspaper reading of the same
principles he applies to reading done
in connection with a college course-
memorizing important facts, and con-
tinual co-ordination of events.

Most of what we do and say dies in
a week. Thus it is with what ap-
pears in the newspapers., with what is
heard at the dinner table, and with
what we read in the college text boo.
One adjustment between this state-
ment and the continuity of the human
progress is to think that every sent-
ence we say or write is forming the
stones in a great bridge. This bridge
is slowly, advancing over vast seas
toward the hazy shores of the ideal
land to which humanity may some-

journalist without ideals, the whole

Representative at Ypsilanti
The annual prohibition oratorical
contest will be held next Monday night,
March 20, in University Hall. The
winner of this contest will represent
the university at the state prohibition
meet to be held at the State Normal
College in Ypsilanti next month.
The prohibition contests were re-
vived only a few years ago after hav-
ing been discontinued for some time.
As a consequence they are only now
regaining some measure of the former
popularity which they had among stu-
dents in the oratory department. This
year, especially, there has been in-
creased interest in the work, and it is
thought that Michigan will make a
much better showing than ever before.
All contestants must have their ora-
tions in the hands of the committee not
later than Saturday, March 18.

OR1 I61.FROST.TELLS OF
soutlieriier Says Dwellers ill Region
Are not "White Trash" But
Iciturnlt of Pioneers
"Our Contemporary Ancestors" was
the subject of an address delivered in
the Presbyterian church last Sunday
evening by President William Goodell
Frost of Berea College, Kentucky. The
address dealt with the life, the hopes,
the aspirations, and the trials and
sorrows of the dwellers in the moun-
tains of Kentucky.
President Frost tried to show that
these people were not the "poor white
trash" of -the South who had -been im-
poverished through loss of their slaves
and plantiations, but that they were
the lineal descendants of those pion-
eers who formed the vanguard of our
civilization. Westward they had turn-
ed their course until, meeting the
formidable barriers of the Appalachian
chain, their progress was checked,
and here they were forced to settle.
He pointfd out that in the struggle
to wrest a living from the barren and
waste places these pioneers, original-
ly well educated themselves, were un-
able to devote the time to the educa-
tion of their children, with the result
that each succeeding generation be-
came .Tore ignorant and lawless than
"Neither the mountainous countries
of Scotland nor Switzerland are as
cut off from civilization as these
regions of which I speak,'" said Presi-
dent Frost. "They have their sys-
tems of natural lakes and waterways
by which transportation is effected,
but here one may ride for miles
through rugged and almost impene-
trable land without seeing more than
a rude cabin or a' badly .tilled corn-
field on some precipitous slope."
The speaker attested to the capacity
of these men and women, and quoted
Abraham Lincoln as an exanple. He
stated that religion and education are
eagerly welcomed by them, and out-
lined at some length the work of
Berea College along these lines. "Un-
less eve grasp this opportunity at
once," he asserted, "it will be too late.
Population has increased. and the
means of subsistence have not. Un-
less their condition is attended to,
it must steadily grow worse."
