none of the promising rifle wielders
are active or heeded in the Varsity
track, baseball or football squads.
With some decided constructive steps,
the local club has a chance of clamb-
ering over the gap into class A, and
then in a few years may stand at
least on a par with the M. A. C., Har-
vard, Yale and the others.

The state's system of higher educa-
tion has developed so much over-lap-
ping of effort that the apparent oppor-
tunity to retrace steps toward unityI
was inviting at first thought. It is
hardly questionable that a mistake
was made at the beginning when our
three colleges, the university, the agri-
cultural and the mining schools, were
scattered into distant locations, for
the result is that we must pay three
times over to maintain staffs of in-
structors who are teaching identically
the same subjects at Ann Arbor, East
Lansing and Houghton. Instincts for
efficiency revolt at thoughts of so
much wasted money and energy. The
mathematical part of engineering
study is the same in all three colleges,
and it is a very large part of the

Meeting of -ewsstiff today, 4:04
The youthful Michigan rifle club
has climbed from the bottom of class
C to the top of class B, and it is
thought probable they will enter class
A next year., But the power which
has buoyed the team to its present
high place is of a peculiar quality
which does not insure permanence. A
small group of perhaps 20 enthusi-
asts has been the main dynamic and
they will soon graduate. There is no
regular coaching system' provided,
and thecquarters are inferiovwfor
highest perfection. Notre Dame has
been creeping gradually closer upon
the heels of the Wolverine squad
through the winter, and more danger-
ous competition may be expected next
One of the men who understands the
organization advocates that the club
form itself upon a substantial basis,
similar to the Varsity band. Then
there is the question of improved
equipment, and the question of a train-
ing table, such as is employed by the
remarkable M. A. C. riflemen, who
have held the world's record.
There are hundreds of available
men who might become experts at
Michigan, probably three times as
many t6 pick from as there are at the
Agricultural College at Lansing. And
However, if it is inevitable that the.
policy, once entered upon, should be
followed to the end, some compensa-
tory advantages can be found in the
situation. The three institutions have
developed varying traditions. The
agricultural college seems to appeal to
a class of youth that would not be at-
tracted to the university. One is the
college of democracy, the other of ar-
istoeracy; shirt sleeve and dress suit
environment respectively-if not in
fact at least in opinions sufficiently
general to be taken into account.
Thousands of our youth have gone to
East Lansing who would not have gone
to Ann Arbor, if their statements are
to be accepted. The outcome is that
by reason of maintaining the second
of our colleges a large element of our
population has received the benefit of
technicaleducation which would. have
either been deprived of it; or have
gone to other states to get it.
The agricultural college is not,
strictly speaking, a place for teaching
only farming. It includes a wide vari-
ety of scientific instruction in its cur-
riculum, and many of its graduates
have won success in professional vo-
cations. It has filled an important
place in our history. It has won its own
peculiar fame. If it were to be wiped
out its loss would bring a sense of
real deprivation that could not be
made good by the prestige of one
great institution, however resplendent.
Farming is demanding more and more
the equipment of scientific training
for its profitable prosecution, and if
the young men who are to supply the
nation's food hereafter cherish deep
seated preferences for getting that
training in their own college the con-
tinuance and fostering of M. A. C.
will be an essential part of our future
