hrough the trying days of the earlier Univer-
of Michigan, when money was scarce, and
g those men whose memories we revere were
asting their consummate efforts, not only in
rg to their studehts their time in the classroom,
in striving to realize the goal which they had
nselves set of a more full and better under-
ding of the broader functions of education, the
hetic beauty of architecture in the buildings of
higan's campus was overlooked. ,Buildings
e had to be, in those days, and when after the
test effort, money was secured to add to those
ady installed on the University's land grant, no

nify it.
he vision, in those early days was, in a word,
er educational than aesthetic. There was so
h to be done in the line of new equipment, new
iratus, new classrooms, that the men lost sight
Iat unity of design the need of which is brought
e to us today'when we realize the enormity of'
additior which is to be made to the present fa-
es at Michigan. '.
is only at this time, when we survey the pres-
buildings of the campus, that we realize what
have lost. We have old buildings, to be sure,
they were put up rather with the original idea
erving a present purpose, than of having a per-
ence and a lasting place in the affection of
-igan graduates. IHow different it would be if
y, we might look upon a unity Qf architectural

xwhich comes from the structures at Oxford.
ambridge, or even at some of our own univer-

he time is at hand to awaken in ourselves a
keriing impulse to the beauty and reverence
:h will be added in years to come if we build our
structures not with an eye to their present ef-
'cy, but with the thought that we are creating
niversity for posterity. Only in such a spirit
we accomplish what others failed to do. Let
uild Michigan not for today, but for the ages.
f all the self-contained individuals in the world,

Ie continually goes' on the assumption that,
lealimin, the Monroe doctrine, and the consti-
n will protect his rights to the full, it is unnec-.
y for him to bother his own head aboit such

stead of action. Let the other fellow read, let him
think, let the powers that be endeavor to locate and
remedy all evils which confront us as communities,
as states, as a society, or as a nation; but by all
means let us as individuals never inconvenience our-
se'lves 'by assisting in the process of constructive
brain-work. We have our old prejudices which tell
us that America is the greatest country on earth and
that "all's well with the world". Everybody ex-
pects his neighbor to be the sentinel, and continues
to rest on the couch of effortless idealism. It is
too much work to do otherwise.
It is about time that the American citizen pull
himself together, extricate his person from' the
slough of indifference, prick up his ears, and scrape
the rust off his' creaking thought-tracks, to the end
that he may attain to an ability to recognize facts
and a will to be public-minded. He must not allow
himself to fall back into the mental laxness of pre-
war days.
In no community should a wide-awake policy of
public thought be promoted and fostered more
readily than in the university group. Too many-
college men are infected with the same virus of
Utopian indifference. Let's work it out of our sys-

Ann Arbor, because of its educational facilities,
has attained an enviable position as a cultural cen-
ter, and one of the leading contributors to this
standing has been the annual May Festival under
the direction of Prof. A. A. Stanley. The people
of Ann Arbor are not the only ones who have ap-
preciated this fact, and each year with the open-
ing of these seasonal concerts, an influx of ,guests
into the city has taken place- for the purpose of at-
tending the affairs.
In this, Professor Stanley's last year as director,
it is with a sense of great pleasure that we note the
presence in Ann Arbor of an even greater number
of guests than has gathered before. A program of
the highest quality.has been arranged as a tribute
to Professor Stanley, the culmination of the con-
tinuous advancement which the Festivals have
achieved under his guidance. To the artists and
visitors who are in Ann Arbor we extend a most
hearty welcome and a wish for the fullest enjoy-
ment of all that the University has to offer.
Before the campus becorhes a cement billboard,
may we suggest that there are better channels for
getting information before the student body than
the present fad of painting it all over the side-

Even a busy city like Chicago has seen the value
of a "great storehouse of knowledge" and built the
new Field Museum. .How long before the Univer-
sity of Michigan will see its great collections prop-

The elescope
The Worst of It Is That it Happened
Isn't it a funny coincidence
When you bolt a class,
Feeling pretty sure in your mind
That you haven't put anything over
On the prof;
And then you meet him on the campus
The very same day,
And he strengthens your conviction
By asking in a suggestive manner,
If you are feeling better?
