MICHIGAN SPIRIT NEXT YEAR
III - ORGANIZATION
the third of the series of editorials on Michigan
rit in the coming year concerns organizations,
1 primarily the honor organizations of the cam.
Two phases of these organizations present
mselves: first, their indirect influence upon the
dent body, and second, their direct influence, or
ir achievements. Of late some discussion has
sen as to the value of such elective societies, but
ir existence is vindicated by the indirect influ-
e which they exert, - the incentive toward the
omplishment of greater things at the University.
ere is possibly none who goes into campus activ-
s solely for the purpose of being elected to hon-
ry organizations. Some enter activities because
work affords them pleasure, many because they
ire experience in a certain line, and the great Ma-
ity because they feel that they should be 'doing
lething for Michigan. But there is perhaps not
out of a hundred who will not work harder,
will not strive more tenaciously, under the
,r of recognition for his services, not only by
activity of which he is a member, but by the
iversity as a whole.
ut honor societies should be more than an in-
tive to students before they have been elected.
present there is a tendency to allow honor to be
sole function, but unless accomplishment is at-
ted, membership will cease to be an honor. These
:ct circles comprise the proven leaders of the
pus, men who have tried, and have achieved.
s inevitable that through the close co-operation
such men with definite aims in mind, the honor
ieties could bestow tangible benefits and exert a
nct influence upon the University. A greater
nber of meetings, arranged at definite dates,
uld be held by these organizations, in order that
r members might discuss questions of impor-
:e, plan their aid to campaigns, and absorb the
ws of each individual upon campus matters.
n brief, the honor organizations of Michigan, as
bodies best fitted for that purpose, should take
active part in directing the policies and affairs
the student body, in order that by concentrated
>rt they may benefit the University, and main-
l the high grade of distinction which in the past
marked entrance into their ranks.
THAT LEGAL MIND
;x-President Wilson, when at work on the peace
otiations in Paris, summarily told Secretary
-sing that "he didn't want lawyers drafting the
ty of peace". Mr. Lansing thereupon kept
et, or at least only suggested; though he was
fing pretty hotly underneath his august legal
erior, and the whole boiled out at last in his
te Peace Negotiations", published as soon as the
nocrats left office.
'he point under discussion is not whether Mr,
son was justified in "squelching" Mr. Lansing,
whether the latter's hindsight opinions on the
duct of the Paris meet are correct. Probably it
take considerable history-writing to settle it.
the principal fact to be noted here is that the
Sident relegated Mr. Lansing's ideas to the
wastebasket not because he had a low idea of his
secretary's intelligence nor of the latter's knowledge
of affairs; but because he was possessed with a
commonly held idea anent lawyers in general: they
were hardshells, steeped in. tradition, refusing to
adopt any ideas not "on all fours" with judgments
6f the past.
So great an international document as the League
of Nations, he thought, ought to be drafted by pro-
gressives, and indeed could only be drafted by men.
who were willing to break with conservative no-
tions, go beyond the prejudices of the past, even
forget history if need be. This was to be a new
era; if the old could not be set aside there was no
use attempting the change, for it was to be based
upon the death Hof the discredited, war-breeding
past. For such things, Wilson called in the states-
men and politicians, the experts in ethnology, the
Is the American lawyer constitutionally unfitted
for such a work? Does his eternal system of back-
reference for decisions mentally incapacitate him
for the forward-looking, the progressive task of dis-
carding what is bad in the past for what is best
in the future?
Doubtless.tthe country's bar numbers manymen
whose mental limitations keep them always within
the ruttings of routine, passing on only what other
men have reasoned out for them. But the true
lawyer, the inan of Marshall's stamp, the man who
does the reasoning into new fields with the proved
past as -a sound basis, is the surest hand for any
constructive work of enlightened organization
within or between nations. The Roman empire, for
one example, was built upon the lawyer's progres-
sive work of knitting together and ordering the
lives of a great hodgepodge of nations, races, tradi-
tions, conflicting forces of every kind.. The man
who refuses to avail himself of experience is tray-
eilng blindly; the lawyer keeps all the past filed be-
fore him, but also learns supremely the art of rea-
soning out the new. He best of all should know
how to build soundly; and who wants any other
kind of building?
The writer will not forget the words of a profes-
sor who declared: "The true lawyer is the man who
reasons out his theory first, and does his own think-
ing; not the fellow who is always hunting for cases
'on all fours' with the situation." As long as law is
taught in that light there will always be a place -
and a great place -- for the man who is trained in
The latest good word for a change in the eligibil-
ity rules: "Semi-professional baseball for the col-
lege athlete without losing his amateur team, as
shown by their statements made Wednesday in re-
gard to summerbaseball." - The DaiJy Iowan.
The swarm of kids who gain admittance to.Var-
sity ball games and holler the inevitable "nickel for
the seat !" to the standing multitude aricturesque
but pesky. How's for the official admitters to
watch the fences?
When the Gargoyle criticises, its' humor; when
any other publication criticizes, it's mud-slinging -
according to the Gargoyle, and they ought to know.

Is it true that baseball originated in England in

We don't know exactly when the game did orig-

Mariner in speaking of some shortstop he said,
"He stoppeth one of three."

IN LIBRARY WORK
With more than 16,000 people en-
gaged in library work, this field now
offers very interesting, inviting, and
profitable work for,men and women ac-
cording to William W. Bishop, librar-
During the war big business houses
realized that men trained in library
methods were valuable in corporative
work. There are now 1,500 positions
vacant in the library field, according
to recent reports.
Throughout the country there are
more than 1,000 executive positions on
library staffs paying good salaries that
demand men of training such as could
be obtained by a post graduate course
at a library school, says Mr. Bishop.
Such schools, giving a two year course,
are now maintained in the New York
public library, the New York state
library, at Albany, the University of
Illinois, and the University of Cali-s
fornia. School maintaining a one year
course are located in the Western Re-
serve university, Wisconsin universi-
ty, Carnegie library of Pittsburgh, and
the St. Louis public library.
There are now 10,000 positions on
library staffs that pay as much as
teaching positions. Equal opportunity
is open for men and women, the pres-
ident and many officers of the Amer-
ican Librarian association being wom-
