SHIRT SLEEVES AND DRESS SUITS
Thwing has struck at the prime fault
of college men and women. They re-
fuse to think. They permit their pro-
fessors to do all of the brain work and
they sit passively in their seats and
swallow predigested knowledge in reg-

The Detroit Free Press. in a recent
editorial, compares M. A. C. and the
University of Michigan as follows:j
"One is the college of democracy, the
other of aristocracy; shirt sleeve and
dress suit environment respectively."
We are inclined to think the Free
Press has written without investigat-
Apparently this statement isvtrue.
The social functions of the University
are more elaborate, the athletic con-
tests in which we indplge' are of
greater magnitude, and the other ex-
tra-curriculum activities of the Michi-
gan student body are more pretenti-
ous. This much we admit. Yet in
East Lansing there are also social
functions, athletic contests and extra-
curriculum activities the sai as here.
The difference is one of degree and
not of kind. It was this difference
that the Free Press had in mind.
Yet there can be, and is such a dif-
ference, without warranting the state-
ment that Michigan is more extrava-
gent, and more given to frivolities.
According to the latest issue of the
World AlmanacCthere are 1,481 stud-
ents at M. A. C. as against 6,857 at1
Michigan. This means that the Ann
Arbor institution is better than four
and six-tenths times larger than her
sister college. For the same reason
social functions, football games and
glee club concerts are four times larg-E
er in Ann Arbor than they are int
Lansing. More persons take part inl
them, they receive more publicity and
more money is expended on them
(but not pro rata), yet this does not
mean that we are more extravagant
The different is one of degree, based
on a difference in size, but not one of
himself. *What of real worth is there
in echoing lectures, textbooks, in being
a carbon copy of a member of the fac-
A professor complained the other day
that his examination papers were hor-
rible examples of attempts to memor-
ize his lectures and thereby receive
good grades. He claimed that with but
three or four exceptions there: was
not an original thinker in his class,
that his words were merely swallowed
and mechanically transmitted upon
This is the fault of college students
today. Their education is emptied into
