A "BIG TEN" EDITORIAL UNION
Nobody on a college campus should keep better
informed of the trend of student thought than the
editor of a student publication. News, coimuni-
catidns, editorials, humor, complaints, campaigns,
exchanges, all of necessity pass before him every
day. He knows, if he has judgment, when campus
ideas are trending in the wrong direction, and meets
the situation through publicity. If he is progres-
sive, he endeavors to improve his own paper and
his college by finding out wherein other schools are'
better and incorporating their improved methods.
Furthermore, he tries to foster the right kind of
To assist all the editors of the ten Conference
schools - whether of news, literary, opinion, or
comic publications - in the carrying out of their
duties, Michigan has invited them to attend the first
convention of 'a Conference Editorial association,
which will be organized in Ann Arbor Ma 20
By rotating the conventions in succeeding years
among the ten universities of the Big Ten, the plan
makes it "possible for this group of campus leaders
to know and understand each other, get an idea of
the excellencies of student achievements outside
their own university spheres, and exchange views
on common problems. Failure to get: together this
way in the past has certainly been responsible for a
large share of the unfortunate misunderstandings
which have made for unfriendly feeling. Each
school will naturally strive to be at its best in en-
tertaining the delegates, and a real Conference fel-
lowship may well be engendered through this asso-
Thrashing-out of numerous differences of opinion
such as that now existing on the question of ath-
letic eligibility will be made possible and the common
decisions reached will be supported by all. Every
university will be able to learn fully, through the re-
port of its editors printed in their publications, how
better methods of student government may be in-
stituted on its campus. Best of all, the good feel-
ing arising from the meetings will be transmitted
to each Conference university, there to take root
annually through the columns of its papers.
NEWSPAPER IDEALS VS. INCOME
Many newspapers throughout the country seem
to have lost sight of the fact that they have a duty
to perform toward the public. They forget that the
newspaper is an institution formed and fostered for
the purpose of disseminating news, real news, to its
readers; that its aim primarily should not be de-
voted toward the increasing of circulation. No
doubt the business side is an important department,
and its needs must be fulfilled. But all too fre-
quently they are fulfilled at the expense of real
journalism, and the promoters of the publication
become so utterly absorbed in the greedy following
of ever-increasing subscription lists that the posi-
tion of the sheet as a factor for good in the commu-
nity is practically lost sight of among the mount-
ing columns of income figures.
Newspapers and publications of all kinds might
do well to set up and follow some such motto as we
find on the title page of one of our art magazines
which proclaims itself to be devoted to "better art,
better work, and a better and more reasonable way
of living." In short, we need more idealism in the
journalistic field, an appreciation of the finer things
of life and an effort to put them before the'people.
There is still room for the dreamer in journal-
ism - too much room.
THE FESTIVAL'S CHORUS
The spectacle - and the musical effect - of the
banked Choral union of students co-operating with
the greatest artists of the operatic world in the ren-
dition of massed-voice selections from such popular
works as "Aida" and "Carmen" has always been
one of the main charms of the May festival. There
is an artistic democracy about this utilizing the solo
effects of world-famed voices in an intelligent con-
junction with the individually mediocre but collec-
tively effective tones of the student chorus; a sense
of musical teamwork, mounting above the personal.
Since the joining of the Choral union with the
festival in 1893, the importance of the choral fac-
tor has naturally been underestimated through the
necessity of advertising by means of famous names.
The great amount of work done by Prof. A. A.
Stanley and his predecessors is evidenced by the
fact that the Choral union .since its organization has
given three hundred eighteen concerts.
Though this year's festival - Dr. Stanley's
last - will be a final tribute to the organizing abil-
ity of a man who has given the best part of his life
to Michigan music, the securing of stars for the
principal parts should not 'rightly stand out as his
principal achievement. The splendid training given
and the, musical interest aroused through the union
of student singers will stand, this year as before, as
the best symbol of his ability to combine and har-
monize local and outside talent.
TAKE YOUR HEALTH EXAM
The movement now under way to extend the priv-
ilege of physical examinations to every man on the
campus is certainly an excellent one. Numbers of
sophomores, however, apparently failing to appre-
ciate the opportunity offered them for determining
their ?physical standing, are not keeping their ap-
Out of college, unattended by all such advantages,
a man will pay a considerable sum to discover his
actual bodily condition, and we who have here the
chance to get that same kind of advice regularly
every year, without charge, are certainly doing our-
eslves an injustice if we fail to make use of the
