KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
There are eight .regents of the University of
Michigan. Every odd year two new regents are
elected -and those two who have'been on the board
the longest time retire. At present the regents,
with the time their teris expire, are as follows:
Hon. Walter H. Sawyer, Dec. 31, 1921; Hon. Vic-
tor M. Gore, Dec. 31, 1921; Hon. Junius E. Beal,
Dec. 31, 1923; Hon. Frank B. Leland, Dec. 31,
1923; Hon. William L. Clements, Dec. 31, 1925;
Hon. Jarnes o. Murfin, Dec. 31, 1925; Hon. Lucius
I Hubbard, Dec. 31, 1927; and Hon. Benjamin
S. Hanchett, Dec. 31, 1927.
JOIN THE PROCESSION
Thursday morning will mark the first time in
forty-nine years that the inauguration of a presi-
dent has taken place at Michigan. Forty-five
classes have graduated without the privilege of
viewing the formal retirement of one head of the
University and the occupation of office by a new
executive. Those who witness this ceremony will
carry .with them through life an impression out-
ranking probably any other recollection in their
college syears. But, unfortunately, owing to the
limited seating capacity of Hill Auditorium the
greater part of the students will not be able to at-
tend the inauguration ceremonies. For these, how-
ever, there is an opportunity almost as great, and
in addition a duty to their University.
Assembled in Ann Arbor on Thursday and Fri-
day will be more than two hundred delegates from
forty-three state universities and colleges. When
they return to their respective institutions they will
carry with them an opinio'n, in fact a decision in
regard to the University of Michigan. They will1
spread throughout the United States the story of
Michigan, for better or for worse, according to the
impression they receive.
Thursday morning, before the ceremonies at Hill
Auditorium, an inaugural procession will be held
through the streets of Ann Arbor. Those who are
fortunate enough to be able to attend the inaugu-
ration itself must be in their places before 'the pa-
rade commences. But every other man and woman
on the campus should, out of loyalty to Michigan,
flank the line of march and let the visiting dele-
gates know that each student on the campus has
the welfare of his University at heart, and realizes
'the significance of the day.
COMING - MEN'S DORMS
Although dormitories at Michigan for men have
been considered in the past, their necessity has never
been brought out so plainly as during the "room
scramble" which marked the opening of this school
year. Nor have the advantages and disadvantages
incident to their construction ever appeared more
in their favor.W
For comfort and satisfaction, living in a dormi-
tory of the successful type which divides the occu-
pants into groups of twenty or so, with a separate
entrance for each group, would be greatly superior
to life in the average student's room'in a stran-
ger's house. For economy, experience has proven
dormitory accommodations to fad surpass those of
rooms in private houses in normal times, and par-
ticularly in a period when high prices are demand-
ed, as at present. Still other benefits of the dor-
mitory system are good fellowship and democracy,
sure to arises through this method of bringing the
students closer together.
Because of the large majority of men not housed
by fraternities, these organizations need have little
fear that dormitories will draw away prospective
members. As President Burton has explained, two
dormitories would have to be built every year for
the next fifty years to accommodate the total en-
rollment of men expected at that time. The new
buildings would be reserved for freshmen for some
time, and would thus both bring first year men
more quickly to a realization of the Michigan
spirit, and at the same time help solve the room
price problem by reducing the demand.
A downward trend in the cost of building mate-
rials has already been noted, and as soon as con-
struction costs become stabilized again, the erec-
tion of dormitories for men will be highly feasible,
and should be one of the first steps in Michigan's
new progressive program.
"WHAT CAN YOU DO?"
Through brilliance, constant application, or, more
likely, a combination of both, eleven engineers
made perfect scholarship records during the past
year. Although the results in-the other' depart-
ments of the University have not been published,
these records have not been confined to the engi-
neering college but have been duplicated all over
the campus. That these men have been rewarded
for fidelity to each day's duties is not the only thing
vhich their marks signify. More important is the
fact that they are on the right track.
The characteristics of the successful student are
the very ones which ordinarily will do most to in-
sure success after graduation. The question that
is asked of the aspirant for the world's rewards is
"What can you do?" For the engineer this often
means "Have you the preparation to carry out this
project, or can you only qualify for a subordinate
position?" For the doctor the unvoiced query is
"Do you know medicine well enough to cure this
case, or shall I take it to a more thorough practi-
tioner?" And the same is true of every profession
and business. Competition is keen, and no one
knowingly will employ a college man in preference
to a more efficient rival who has not attended a uni-
versity, simply because of a degree. Ability is the
The all-A student is a man who has trained him-
self to organize and accomplish work, slighting no
part of it because it is disagreeable. The quali-
ties he possesses- will serve him well after college,
for the successful business and professional men
are those who are "A students" within their spheres
of activity in life.

Our Daily Novelette
It was the terrible 32d day of March, 1918.
Prince Komoff Yourperchsky who also bore the
honorable title of First Pace Setter for the Impe-
rial Wolfhounds was modestly sewing a pair of
imported rubber heels upon his exquisite wooden
shoes. Totally unaware of the impending disaster
that threatened both him and his beautiful young
bride from the Follies was this noble nobleman as
he sat in fancied safety in his luxurious fortress
upon the mossy plains of Moscow.
Stealthily through the heavy folds of tapestry
hanging between the royal salon and the stable, a
cold black muzzle appeared. Slowly but surely in
an ominous circle it moved until its wicked eye waa
aimed unerringly at the leonine head of the aris-
"The gods be with me; I will get him this time,"
muttered the unseen plotter. The words were
hardly clear of his whiskers before there was a
blinding flash. Dense smoke filled the apartment.
One horse bellow escaped the prince's throat. Like
all Russians he lived in constant fear of being
blown to bits, but by a remarkable display of will
power he manged to hold himself together.
A courteous smile upon his beard, the man step-
ped from behind the curtains. His work had been
well done. Fondly he polished the evil black muz-
zle with his silk necktie, and bowed courteously to
the princess who stifl regarded him in dazed horror.
"The flash-light picture will be a success, Your
Highness," said the photographer.
