in a word, to know the undergraduate.
Shortly after the war started he resigned his po-
sition went to London and was appointed director
of recruiting offices. In 19I8 he was made min-
ister of reconstruction. Because of his keen in-
sight into matters of state, his diplomatic ability,
and his knowledge of people, and not as the result
of a political pull, he is now serving as ambassador
to the United States.
The graduating student can learn a great deal
from a man who knows so much about the life
and problems of one attending a university, who
knows what the university student must cope with
when he leaves his Alma Mater, whose knowledge
of and friendship for the American people is prob-
ably not surpassed by that of any other foreigner.
HOW ABOUT DEBATING?
Every so often we hear someone ask, "What's
the news on Michigan debating? Why don't we
hear more about it ?"
The question is timely. We give much time
and enthusiasm to boosting athletics, especially
football, and we are .ever anxious to win some-,
thing. This is highly commendable, for it helps to
improve the college spirit; but while we are in for
competition, why can't we develop a little prp-
nounced anxiety to beat somebody along intellectual
lines as well as athletic?
Debating is one of the forms of strictly intellec-
tual competition which might be encouraged by the
entire student body, but is not. A handful of stu-
dents regularly attend the meetings of debating so-
cietiqs and take part in the meets, but most of us.
seem to have little -interest in this orm of activity ;
and, if we do attend, we seem to-do so with the ex-'
pectation of being bored for the period of an hour
or more. The result is that the big men, and often
the best debaters, on the campus have not lately
turned out as they should, have not taken part in
the work of the societies, and debating has fallen
off in importance.
Oratorical work and the preparation for con-
tests of this sort are helpful, however, and should
be encouraged. Such a pronounced lack of interest
in one of the activities which makes most toward
personality, culture, and the faculty of leadership
is, in University men and women, nothing short of
deplorable and, even with all the rest of our outside
interests, there seems to be no good Feason why we'
should not give debating the support it deserves.
It's odd but true that a student gets off more old
correspondence just before he goes home for
Christmas vacation than he does in a whole semes-

genuine Yuletide for the poor children of Ann

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
The University of Michigan Extension division
was organized in 1911. At the present time one
hundred eleven faculty members deliver three hun-
dred lectures a year, reaching every county in the
state. The twelve bureaus send out reading rat-
ter, supervise high school debates, care for the pub-
lic health in case of necessity, offer regular univer-
sity courses for full credit, and loan the services of
faculty men to municipalities where their advice is
invaluable in determining the course of public
THE EXTENSION SERVICE
Not many years ago' there were whole counties
in Michigan where the University of Michigan was
a fague institution "out there" which sometimes
broke into the news columns because its students
had committed some new asininity. Now all of
that has been changed, largely because of the serv-
ices rendered by the University of Michigan Ex-
The three main purposes of this division were
to acquaint the people of the state with their Uni-
Versity and its work, to give the faculty a more
adequate conception of the problems of the peo-
ple, and to make use of the University facilities to
the greatest possible extent in aiding the state to
solve its problems.
We may well be proud of the success of these
three measures under the administration of Profes-
sor Henderson. Our faculty members have in their
trips about the state become human beings'instead
of names to the people. The University is no
longer something intangible. It has become the
place where Professor So-and-So hold his classes.
'Oh, yes I know him. We had a long chat to-
gether the' last time he was down from Ann Ar-
bor." The professor on his side has in these chats
come to know the people, too, as human beings and
to appreciate the conditions under which they live.
The whole thing has been put upon a human basis
as opposed to its preceding institutional character.
In addition to this the towns and cities of the
state have been given sthe benefits of the work in
the .University laboratories and of the technical
skill of our instructors.
The. University has become to some extent the
workshop for the state of Michigan without in the
least decreasing its efficiency in its primary func-
tion, the instruction of Michigan students. This
undeniably is a worthy achievement.
SIR AUCKLAND GEDDES
Classes graduating from the University of Mich-
igan deserve the best that is to be had in the way
of commencement exercises, and it is probably with
this end in view that the authorities obtained Sir
Auckland Geddes, British ambassador to the United
States,'to deliver the commencement address.
Before the war Sir Auckland Geddes was active
in educational pursuits, serving as president of Mc-
Gill college, Montreal, Canada. While acting in
tltis capacity he was able to study the different
types of men and women found on every campus
mingle with them, ascertain their problems, and,

But will you be able to partici-

watching the others enjoy them-
I can't teach you to sing, but, I
will guarantee to teach you to
dange perfectly by Xmas, if you

If Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,
neither hath it any like a man ridiculed. The fin-
ger of scorn which has too long been pointed at
the men because of the inability to draw away from
the women in the Contest seems to have aroused
them to a superhuman effort and today finds them
leading once more.
