ANSWERING THE ACOLYTES
imes is out again, this time placing the Acolyte
- oi student: activities in the leadoff position,
e it should be. No article in years has started
discussion, nor revealed so broad a cleavage m
us thought as to the function of the Univer-
It is particularly fortunate that the paper
written by two men who went at the matter
rely, investigated even though ,superficially,
reported their findings and recommendations
style that makes extremely interesting reading
r. It may fairly be said that the minority
4- the idea that extra-curricular activities must
ade to fit into the purely scholastic- conception
e University - has now been given as clever
tppealing a presentation as could be afforded
d may rightly stand or fall by what has been
n the two Chimes papers.
e second, or cgnstructive section of the Acolyte
e, winds up with nine recommendations aimed
,ke Michigan the type of university which the
rs think it ought to be. Faculty regulation
activities, with more systematic records; re-
nent of proper classification of all organiza-
both before recognition and when referred to
ident publications; all clerical and administra- -
york taken out of the hands of students and
a the hands of paid employes; The Daily un-
sub-department of journalism, and Chimes
argoyle directed by the department of rhetoric
rinting articles, say, on "Zoology, Chemistry,
astronomy"; all purely social campus activities
I recognition, all dances run by the faculty,
ics and administrative activities "strictly lim-
; no activity permitted to exist which takes tpi
ch of any student's time that, even for a short
n, he cannot get his lessons; Phi Beta Kappa
imilar societies made to hold meetings and be
tional rather than merely honorary; and fin-
a point system adopted making all students'
ible for more than a certain maximum of ex-
irricular activity - these are the fundamen-
f the two Acolytes' plan to make Michigan
for what they consider "the main line of uni-
y thought and culture".
s program would, beyond a doubt, serve the
:s authors desire. It is comprehensive, and if
effect would transform the whole.scheme and
of the University. The quarrel, then, is not
the means which the Acolyte writers would '
to reach their end but with the desirability of
id itself. Do we want the type of university
the Acolytes advocate? Or do we wish Mich-
o be an all-around, many-sided educator of the
personalities, and characters of its students,.
has been in the past? Can we conscientiously
r "yes" to the following questions?-
Is education so narrow that its only function
train minds to "the clear comprehension of
principles"; so restricted in its scope that it
t include development both in social ability
n the type of character which makes good
s and executives? Is a broad education, in
merely a matter of books and lectures?
Is Michigan primarily and solely interested,
:ate university, in turning out scholars, of the
type who make up college faculties? Is the coun-
try to be served best by an annual increment of this
sort of graduates rather than the all-around, capa-
ble, resourceful, businesslike, and pleasant-to-meet
type of college man who is now carrying on the
practical leadership of America's affairs?
3. Granting that scholarship is "the main line"
of university training, can it fairly be said that
there is no room for the important side lines of stu-
dent activities? Is the average student so crowded
with school work - or should he be so crowded -
that he cannot take from one to three hours a day
for the social development and character-building
which the competition of publications, class organi-
zations, the Union, or other activities brings?
Should he narrow himself, during .the four years
of his college training, to bookish interests and let
the other sides of him wait their turn until he is
out of school and forced to face a world which de-
mands all-around men?
4. Are we ready to bind the students of the
University of Michigan so closely to scholastic in-
terests that a student's clamant energies can have
no profitable outlet' except along academic lines?
Are all the old social honors and sprs to activity
to be removed in order to give more room for book--
work? .Are we ready to make the grind the big
man on the campus, as he surely will be if all other
desirable goals for student ambition are removed?
If we're all for the grind type of man and the
one-sided type of university; if we can answer the
above questions squarely in the affirmative - then
by all means let us put the Acolytes' program in
force at once. '
BEATING THE SPRINGIFEVER -
Good business men usually play just as hard as
they work- and with equal regularity. In the
University where we are engaged in attempting to
prepare ourselves to be efficient individuals after
graduation, we would do well to keep this thought
in mind, especially during the coming warm, lan-.
guorous days when we shall be all too prone neither
to work nor to play with any degree of system.
Each day is heard on the campus the inevitable
spring complaint, "Gee, I've sure got to get that les-
sonout". Much time is spent dreading a bit of
work that, if it were only studied at the right time,
would in the end leave the student with more leisure
for play and, more important, a satisfactory array
of marks in June. Every student here would find
himself better pleased with his day if he would give
some thought to dividing his work and play time
into more regular and systematic periods.

"Shall I brain her?" asked the executiq~uer,
And the victim's courage fled.
,"You can't; she's a co-ed,
Just hit her on the head."
You're right, Clarice, when you say that about all
some sororities have is their girlish laughter and
If there is anything we like it's

To carry a few extra hours.
Thus we ourselves last year got through
21 hours -
Yes, sir, r, the first semester.
And 10 the second.
We thank you.
We believe we mentioned before the fact that our
path to a successful social career is blocked by two
insurmountable barriers - we have a cowlick so
we can't part our hair in the center, and we can't
dance. Our girl is painfully aware of that last fact
and doesn't like our ."trying to dance" as one of
our fair friends naively confided to a brother of
So the other night when we proposed that we go,
to a dance we weren't much surprised when, our girl
declined. In fact, sticking her nose up in the air
like a co-ed being spoken to by a fellow who's only
met her three times she says:
"I hope you can see the answer to your proposal
in my face.
We studied the, said face for a moment or two
and then thoughtfully replied:
"Well, we ought to be able to see it there - it's
certainly plain enough."
And then our girl proved to us that while some
men are dancing fools, others are fools to dance.
