THE MEDICAL SCHOOL
me months ago the campus and the entire
of Michigan were considerably stirred by the
of a break between the University ad-
tration and the State Medical association upon
Zuestioni of extending the University's hospi-
icilities. The doctors claimed as their pre-
or opposing such extension, that it was a step
-d state medicine. Those who advocated
dent Marion L. Burton's point of view main-
I that the doctors feared for their pocket-
, and were opposing him from the very oppo-
f altruistic or public-spirited motives. The dis-
was hot ; but at least it was to be hoped that,
loyalty to the University, no ill-feeling would

ounter-charges continued, frequently fostered
rsons who were not in the least "on the in-
of the question. Among this uninformed
some students are to be numbered. Rumors
eliefs were passed aroun freely as handbills.
P the climax, some students went to the ex-
f passing on the expert information that the
al school was "shot" - ruined in organiza-
nd efficiency - due to the scrape with the
s hard to say that such men were deliberately

sider the advantages which are claimed for it by its
supporters as set forth in an article of Professor
Immel's which appeared in The Daily on May 15.
We are perfectly willing to agree with the writer
of the article that childish ideas should no longer
be cherished in college activities. Yet, we are forced
to take issue with the statement that "we still like
to win but we know that it is better to play fair".
Surely, the writer did not mean to imply that in
order to win, there must necessarily be foul play.
If so our social order is in such a condition that
to merely refuse to give a decision in a college de-
bate can in no wise have the slightest influence in
bringing about the period of "maturity" which
seems so desirable to the exponents of no-decision
Mr.'Immel goes on to say that medical students
study to become good physicians and engineers to
become good engineers. Is it any the less true that
students of the Oratory department study to become
good speakers when they are in the classroom? If
this is not true, then it is the Oratory department
which is failing and not the method of conducting
debates in which only six members of the student
body take part each year.
Perhaps it would not be out of place to call to
mind at this time the article which appeared in The
Daily earlier in the year giving the names of sev-
eral of the graduates of the architectural depart-
ment who had won prizes in a Pan-American con-
test. No doubt the Upiversity should write these
unworthy alumni asking them to refrain from such
childish proceedings as entering the results of their
labors in an internatiohal drawing contest. They
have no right thus to cast reflections on their Alma
And, while we are cleaning up, we feel confi-
dent that our sister university at Urbana would
appreciate our interest if we let them know that the
Scarab medal which is offered there each year looks
childish, and that they will do well in refraining
from offering it. Also, we must not forget to do
away with the Chicago Alumni medal and the hun-
dred dollars award in the yearly oratorical con-
test, since they are signs of immaturity.
Engineering and medical studies are not of the
kind which admit of contests. We cannot believe
that the students in this field are less human than
the rest of us. They simply do not have contests
to engage in.
We also believe that the interest is primarily in
the debate and not in the decision, the same as is
true of all athletic contests. Yet no debater can
be entirely satisfied without seeing the results of
Why not forget this talk about childishness and
get down to business? The student body and the
majority of this year's debaters want a decision de-
bate. If we expect to get the best results in de-
bating contests, why not begin by satisfying those
. who are most interested?
Masques' presentation of "The Importance of Be-
ing Earnest", Wednesday night, marked another ad-
vance in Michigan dramatics. This organization
has worked for some years to raise and maintain a
high standard in its plays, but efforts have hitherto
been confined to the limits of Sarah Caswell Angell
This year their work in Wilde's well-known play,
at the Whitney, was particularly fine. The clever
lines and difficult roles of the play were "put over"
wth almost professional skill, and the stage, with
its three eautiful sets of scenery, retained the same
atmosphere and care for details noted in the for-
mer smaller efforts.
