cept the hypothesis that radium is a sure cure for
cancer even in its simpler forms. But granted the
statement made by Mme. Curie is true it is hard
to be as enthusiastic as some as to the great bene-
fits to be derived from the use of radium in for-
ever stamping out the evils wrought by cancers.
The metal radium, due to the difficulty of, extract-
ing it, is nearly as scarce as the proverbial hen's
teeth, and as far as anybody knows always will be.
Few hospitals are equipped with an adequate sup-
ply of radium, and the price charged for treat-
ments in almost every case is prohibitive. Unless
some plan is devised to administer radium treat-
ments at a price that more nearly fits the pocket-
book of the averagehuman being it is hard to see
how much progress can be made in ridding the
world of cancer, even though the metal has the
power to cure when used.
Should Mme. Curie's hypothesis be proven true
it Nil be a boon to humanity, but there will still
be plenty of room for scientists to share in the
honor by making the remarkable substance more
available for the uses of the medical profession.
WHAT DO COLLEGE STUDENTS KNOW?
,Last month there appeared in the Atlantic
Monthly an article written by Paul V. West, enti-
tled "What Do College Students Know ?" We hope
and believe there are few people who regard the
college student in the same light as Mr. West sees
them. According to him, -the student should avail
himself of the opportunity while at college to ac-
quire a great .volume of facts, and to catalogue and
cross-index them accurately in his mind. How-
ever, in our opinion, the purpose of a college edu-
cation is not to turn out human encyclopedias.
The main object, we think, is to develop a stu-
dent's reasoning power'and not his memory for de-
tails. What matter it that perchance he cannot an-
swer such questions as "Where is the thyroid
gland ?", "What is a chamelon ?"; "Who was Ro-
din ?", or "Where is Tokio ?", if from his college.
training he has acquired the power of rational rea-
soning. In an engineering course, for instance, a
maximum amount of time is spent upon theory and
principles, and a. mimimumn upon practice; thereby
turning out, not so much a skilled manipulator as a
man who knows the whys and wherefores of the
work he is undertaking and is able to reason out
for himself the details. - Arizona Wildcat..

KNOW YOUR CLASSMATES
It, has been said that "One touch. of Oratory
akes the whole class kin"; and consequently, it
as a great shock recently to one of the instructors
. the Public Speaking department to find that
embers of his class did not even know each other's
ties; - because an Oratory course is sometimes
infully informal. A student therein cannot re-
I ess a feeling of common' oppression with his
ighbor as each in turn is crucified upon the plat-
before the glaring eye of his entire class.
For this reason, it is only natural that failure to
come acquainted is more marked in other
durses throughout the University than in Public
peaking Michigan is . confronted by the same
-oblem as any other like imstitution of her size,I
e problem of keeping her student body united and
terested in each other; thereby fostering a spirit,
fellowship which will perpetuate her as a true
niversity, and not merely a clearing house for
e acquiement of knowledge.
Whatever adverse criticism is made of Illinois,
ill it is to her credit that every visitor from U-
ma last fall greeted every other man frm his
kn university. This is the spirit whi&h must be
ore fully developed at Michigan. It is almost
conceivable that men can see each other day in
d day out, sit as neighbors in class for six months
a time, and still be so uninterested as not to
ow each other's name, and soneglectful as to re-
se a mutual "Hello" when they meet outside of
e class room. A little more congeniality among
e student body will go a great way to prevent the
predations which size is attempting to make in
We suppose the' scientist thinks of heat largely
a chemical phenomenon drying moisture on some
ings but wetting humans by causing them to ex-
Le perspiration from the sudoriferous glands of
e skin, whenever the sun can get at them.
But the average college student is not given to
finitions. Heat to him means one of two things,
cording to the sort of person he is: either a pest
be suffered while we are getting things done, or
excuse for doing nothing.
The earth is full of similar pricks to the flesh,
d the way we react to them is the test of our
ergy and our usefulness. Every man and woman
s a fine chance now of making a self-trial. Shall
6 let heat halt us, or shall we get the better o
at and do our daily jobs in spite of it?

Bits of History
In 1869 the Royal Dialectical -society conducted
an investigation of the spiritualistic activities in
England. As a result a charge of fraud was
brought against the Davenport Brothers, who, it
has since been discovered, worked in co-operation
with Maurice Chare, and employed Sofia Cushin
as their medium.
