the Members of the University Senate:
In accordance with the action of the Senate at its meeting held on
v. 22, I desire to announce that a special meeting will be held on Mon-
r evening, Dec. 6, 1920, at 8 o'clock in Room C of the Law building. This
eting is called for the purpose of giving special consideration to the re-
t of a committee of the Senate council which was presented by the
airman, Dean Bates, at the last meeting. This report makes recommenda-
ns in regard to our answers to a questionnaire sent out by the American
incil on Education of which this University is a member. The subject
the questionnaire is federal legislation dealing with educational mat-
s, notably the Smith-Towner Bill.
Other matters will be presented for which there was not time at the
t meeting.
A full attendance of the members of the Senate is highly desirable. We
ve real obligations to these large national problems of education. The
cussion at the recent meeting of the Senate clearly indicated that we
re willing to accept these responsibilities.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I have read with interest and some
surprise Professor McLaughlin's em-
phatic protest against the campus
drive for the benefitbof Austrian stu-
dents. There can be no doubt but'
that we all agree that the crimes con-
mitted by thearmies of the Central
Powers, not only on the soldiers of
the Allies but on numerous innocent
victims as well, have been such as to
deserve the utmost condemnation.
But now that the war has been over
for more than two years, does it
speak well for the human soul to
harbor fierce hatred against our form-
er enemies? Does the spirit or relig-
ion not enjoin upon us to be human,
generous, and forgiving? By contin-
uing to cherish hatred and the feeling
of revenge are we not also becoming
Prussianized? Are we not following
the worst example of barbarism in
modern times.
Questions Statement
Is it true, as Professor McLaughlin
states, that it would be an insult to
French universities and to French
students if we held out a helping hand
to Austrian students? I claim that no
kind or noble deed, no act of charity,
can ever under any circumstances be
an insult to any one-not if the teach-
ings of Christ have any meaning to-
As I see it, the Central Powers have
received and are still receiving the
most severe punishment for their
wicked deeds-and justly so!
Does it not follow that we as gen-
erous and "virtuous" Americans (see
President Wilson's Thanksgiving pro-

1Iam or te o pnon iaL We enraEI
Powers and more especially Austria
(conditions in Austria are said to beg-
gar description!) should be helped-
not so much for their sake as for our1
own, our humanity, and our souls.{
Professor McLaughlin asks the fol-
lowing question in the last para-
graph of his protest: "Humanity may
dictate thought and care for all that
suffer, but does it preclude considera-
tion of our friends and must it be

ish a just and lasting peace among
ourselves, and with all nations."
My contribution to the cause of
the Austrians is a mere pittancewhen
compared with what I have contribut-
ed to the fund for French orphans. I
shall continue to contribute to both.

By all means, let us do all we can deeply gratified with the spirit shown

our friends, but at the same ime t l

us not forget the miseries of our form-
er enemies, however responsible they
may be for them. Are we benefiting
the civilization of the world by har-
boring a spirit of revenge?
Commends Spirit
Let us have peace and good will to
all. That, as I understand it, is the
true religion, true humanity, and true
nobility of soul.
I take this occasion to extend
hearty congratulations to all those
who have contributed to the Austrian
cause. The young and old, men and
women, who have shown a magnific-
ent spirit in that they have returned#
good for evil. Nothing can hasten
theprogress of the world more than
"charity for all."
Let me conclude with that noble
American utterance: "With malice
toward none; with charity for all;
with firmness in the right, as God giv-
es to see the right, let us strive on to
finish the work we are in; to bind

All 'day long there was a continual
stream of students pouring into the

one disappointed in an endeavor to

can be no congestion and disappoint-

good thing. The trouble is that its
conservatism is motivated."
L A. W. Stowe, of the Grand Rapids
Press replied, contending that a con-
science is present in many newspa-
pers, and cited policies of the paper
on which he worked as proof.
Explaining the work of thet new de-
partment of engineering research at
the University, Dean M. E. Cooley dis-
cussed the subject, "The University
and Industry." "There is no more
potent word today than the work 're-
search'," he said.
Should Use~Library
"The use of the Library by news-
papers has to be learned," W. W. Bis-
hop, librarian, said, and added, "We
have frequently helped out the papers
of the state." Libraries should be
called upon for instant services, dates,
views and material for editorials and
feature 'stories'," he explained.
Humor was the order of the evening
at the banquet, the concluding session
of the convention. Prof. F. N. Scott,
toastmaster, introduced Rev. Lloyd C.
Douglas who spoke on "Newspaper
Humor and Otherwise." He said
humor was America's distinct contri-
bution to the world, but observed that
it was decreasing. Attributing .this
to greed and the movies, he. declared,
"The movies are largely responsible
for the loose morals, thefts, and arson
prevalent to such a large extent to-
day." The newspaper could exert a
more powerful inffuence for good 6y
its cartoons, humor column and "fill-
ers," he declared.
