ing. It welcomes students from every department
irrespective of class or previous experience and re-
quires only a serious interest in the work and a
genuine desire to serve both The Daily and the
University. It is not unusual to find students from
every department on the campus working on The
Daily and cases of medical, law, and engineering
students who are working merely for an incidental
knowledge of journalism, are far from rare.
Tryouts are given every opportunity to prove
their interest and ability by working on assign-
ments, and in the actual publishing of the paper.
They ,are rewarded with appointments to the staff
as reporters which are followed with promotions
to. upper-staff positions.
With the beginning of the new semester, there
will be openings for tryouts on The Daily. For the
loan who earnestly desires to engage in a campus
activity both for his own benefit and that of 'the
University, there is no more worth-while field than
that offered by the publications.

Bernstein In order that skilled man who are employed on
the faculties of the University shall have time not
nfort only for the dissemination ofwisdom but also for'
independent experimentation and uninterrupted re-
ptn search, the Alumni association of Michigan has ap-
hiner pointed Robert H. Clancy to be its field secretary
in raising funds and otherwise carrying out plans
for remedying the faults of the overcrowded con-
ditions that hamper the big purposes of the Uni-
B. Covell The overplus of students has resulted in profes-
y' Whiting
ra Priehs sors being burdened with the routine vwork of teach-
ing, many of whom have profound ability 'for con-
structive research which would add sonething to
erville the sum total of human knowledge. This condition
does not promote a policy for the general good, but
limits enlightenment to the few individuals who
may come in personal contact with the instructor
in his teaching capacity., The association will at-
v for any tempt to see that University specialists are not so
lull charge criminally restricted in their activities.
Mr. Clancy should be supported in his work not
ollows : alone by those intimately connected with the Uni-
Adamus, versity but by the generalpublic as well. When one
inesday section of a class is found to contain 250 enrolled
aornton students when in reality 25 students is all one pro-
aturdAy fessor can handle with the best- results, the prob-
lem is seen to be one of striking significance. The
-- highly commendable aim of the Alumni associa-
tion is to provide what is necessary to give the
University specialists an opportunity for-construe-
S tive investigation.

The Princeton system of Faculty Advisers is
based uponthe desire to' create a point of contact
outside the class-room between professor and stu-
dent. That much good is to be gained from such a
relitionship, both from its social aspect, and help
which it may afford 'a student in determiniig his
course of study,none will deny. The criticism of
our present system is that it is not- functioning
properly. The relation between adviser and ad-
visee is in most cases merely a formal one, and
.lack'. even the semblance of intimacy which is es-
sential to its real success.
The reason for this lack of wholesome co-operat
tion between professor and undergraduate is, we
believe, to be attributed to the artificial basis upon
.which the system is founded.
Opon entering college a freshman is assigned as
an advisee to one of a specially selected group of
the Faculty. So far so good, for the obvious way
to bring an entering man in touch with the Faculty
is to assign him to' a professor, in the hope that this
formal introduction may serve as the beginning of
a more intimate and profitable relationship during
the next three years.
The next stage, however, is where the system
breaks down, for in this initial assignment of ad-
visee to adviser, no account is taken of the possi-
bility that this relation may never develop from a
merely formal to an intimate one. Often a man
finds during his junior and senior year that his
adviser is uncongenial to him, and accordingly his
usefulness as a real adviser is practically nil, so far
as that particular under-graduate is concerned. Yet
under the present arrangement a man is assigned, to
the same adviser for four years. :
A possible remedy for the inelasticity in the pres-
ent system, would be to assign a freshman to an
adviser for the first two years of his' college course.
After that he should be left to decide for himself
whether he wishes to consult this same adviser dur-
ing his lagt two years, go to another professor who
better suits his taste, or trust his own judgment
The great trouble in the present Faculty Adviser
system is that the personal equation is not allowed.
to figure in it, and unless it is supplied in some such
way as has been suggested, the system must in-
evitably fail to function properly.-The Daily

ELECTRICITY has leveled out

and also make traveling clean and

then, by returning some of this
power to the trolley, safely brake the
trains on descending grades. And
their -capabilities are not impaired
by excessively cold weather when the
steam engine is frozen and helpless.

Electricity has become the universal
