REVENUE LAW ON THE
Washington, March 17. - Over-
whelming endorsement of a universal
military training system, coupled with
equally strong support for the exist-
ing disciplinary relationship between
officers and men of the army, was ex-
pressed today by a representative
group of the selective service draft
of the 12th division of Camp Devens,
Representative on War
The opinion" of the men number-
Ing 1,380 with an average length of
service of more than 10 months, were
obtained through a carefully arranged
questionnaire with every safeguard,
provided to insure absolutely free ex-
pression of opinion and with gen-
eral distribution of the division so as
to make the answers representative.
The report in the inquiry was made
public today at the War Department.
Although half of the men question-
ed were dissatisfied with military life
the report shows that 89.5 per cent of
the replies expressed the soldier's be-
lief that he personally had benefitted
by his army life; 79 per cent were
glad of their training aside from feel-
ings of patriotism, and 88 per cent
favored universal military training as
a national policy. A substantial ma-
jority agreed that the existing rela-
tionship between office% and men was
necessary and disapproved the social
mixing of the rank and file.
The largest numbers of suggestions
as to improvements in the service.
had to do with better -fitting uniforms
or changes in mess arrangements.
Of universal military training the
answers were' emphatic. Of 1,380 re-
plies turned In 1,213 were flatly in
favor. Good citizenship, physical ben-
efits, and character building were the
chief reasons of approval assigned.
Six Months' Training
The largest number of men making
recommendation as to the form of
service urged six months as a suffi-
cient. period and thought it should be
given to men during their 18th year.

Forty-six new members, 38 men

The program, which was furnished

with the singing of the Latin hymn,

Study of Local Conditions Shows
Inadequacy of Professors'
LEGISLATURE EXPECTED TO
MAKE FIT READJUSTMENTS
Since the acceptance by the Board
of Regents of a memorial from faculty
members of the University, regarding
professors' salaries, an energetic came
paign is being carried on by the news-
papers and certain officials of the
state to bring the situation before
the state legislature for prompt in-
vestigation and action.
Not only have those connected with
the disposal of University affairs tak-
en the matter into consideration, but
campus clubs and honorary societies
are beginning to advocate the cause
of the faculty men, and to ask for im-
mediate adjustment of the ridiculous
and unfair conditions.
Michigan Low on Salary List
As far back as 1908, in the report
to the Carnegie foundation, it was
found that among the 27 largest uni-
versities in the United States, Michi-
gan ranked 20th in the average sala-
ries paid to professors; and 19th in
the salaries to assistant professors.
Nineteen hundred and eight was the
last time the foundation report was
made, and present statistics are not
Professors Not Considered
In 1908, instructors of the faculty
in university classes received a mini-
mum of $900 a year. Eleven years aft-t
er, in 1919, the minimum salary of an
instructor is $1,000 a year. Thus it is
seen that in the very abnormal con-
ditions brought about by the war, and
the high cost of living, before the war,

HUGE FUND ASKED
Board of Regents Seeks Million and a
Half from Legislature for
NEW UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL
AMONG PROJECTS PLANNED
With a request to the legislature for
appropriations of $1,500,000 for the
coming year, the Board of Regents has
authorized the publication of a pamph-
let addressed to the voters of Michi-
gan and the legislature for 1919.
Deficiency in Current Expense
After enumerating the different ex-
penses of construction which include
the completion, furnishing and equip-
ping of the library, the building of a
hospital, and the construction of a
model high school, the bulletin in-
cludes an item of $300,000 to meet the
deficiency in current expenses due to
the abnormal war conditions for the
year ending Dec. 31, 1918.
Increased cost of everything which
the University must purchase has
caused this deficit. Not only have
building materials soared to incred-
ible prices, but the exceptional up-
ward trend in the cost of living, has
resulted in the necessity of paying
higher wages for all the different
kinds of labor involved in building
and construction work.
Legislators Overlook Changes
Merely for the past year, appro-
priations for $300,000 must .be made to
pay the expenses of the previous
terms, or, before the end of the pres-
ent year, the University will be with-
out funds for running expenses. The
fact that the unusual conditions
due to the war, which have seriously
affected every concern and individual
in the country, have not been taken
into consideration by the legislators,

Women are to be prominent in the

university has already selected a wom-

Hoelzle, '19, is the one woman among
five entrants in the University finals.
This is the third year that North-
western university has chosen a wom-
n contestant. In the two previous
years its representatives were wom-
en, and each time they have been win-
ners of the contests.
Alice Hoelzle is the third woman
in the history of the University to
enter the league finals. In 1906 Fran-

the big contest, and in 1917 and 1918
Lois May, '18, was defeated in the
There will be at least one woman
among the judges of the University
contest. From five to seven members
of the faculty will compose this body.
In addition to Northwestern univer-

Iowa will choose its contestant on
Friday. The Universities of Wisconsin
and Minnesota will be the last to pick

BRICKS OR BRAINS?
(Reprint from The Daily.)
If it is true that less than ten per cent of the professors in the Univer-
sity are able to live on their salaries, then there is something radically
wrong at Michigan.
In the last few years we have put up a number of new buildings on the
campus. This is a good sign. We should have adequate facilities. But
we should remember that we must also have the men to preside in these
Many of our best faculty men have left simply because they could com-
mand more money elsewhere. What is the good of fine buildings if we have
not the big men? A university is noted because of its faculty. Are we
building a university of bricks?
Michigan has been unfortunate in not having endowments. Other un-
iversities, through the generosity of wealthy men, are able to erect beaut-
iful buildings and pay adequate salaries. Not being endowed, except for
a few isolated cases, we must make the state appropriation put up ourj
buildings and also pay our salaries. Consequently, the latter suffer.
If the appropriations of the state were larger, larger salaries could be
paid. To make the state grant larger appropriations, the taxpayers should
be brought to realize the importancee of the University, and be made to
take more pride in it. At present, the University is viewed as a sort of
The University should be placed in a different light before the taxpay-
ers. They should be made to see that higher education is not a fad, but a
vital, all-absorbing thing.
We want new buildings-we need them. But we also want salaries that
will enable a fair sort of living. A university of bricks is pretty to look
at. But a university of brains is the one that will command attention and
ment at 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon
in Sara Caswell Angell hall.
The ceremony will be opened by a
prayer by the Rev. Sidney S. Robins,
new pastor of the Unitarian church.
This will be followed by a solo by
Robert R. Dieterle, '21M. He will be
accompanied by Earl V. Moore.
After the address by Dr. Dodson, de-
grees will be conferred by President
Harry B. Hutchins. The singing of
"America" will close the exercises.
"Although the graduation is for the
senior medical class and its friends,
others will be admitted if seats re-
main," said Prof. W. P. Lombard who
is in charge of the arrangements.
A luncheon will be held at 12;30
o'clock in Barbour gymnasium, tick-
ets for which are now on sale at the
medical school office. Invitations have
been sent to the deans of all depart-
ments. Dean Victor C. Vaughan will
act as toastmaster.
Invitations in the form of a small
booklet covered with grey embossed
leather have been sent out by the
class. These contain a 1st of the fac-
ulty, the class officers, the commit-
tees, and the class role, and include
a cut of the medical building.
