UDGE GRANT: ALUMNUS CUM LAUDE
Periods in the history of the University of Mich-
,an are of course most closely linked with the
eeds and character of her presidents, whose influ-
rnce has always seemed the distinguishing factor of
ach era. But it is well to remember that behind
he work of these men was the devoted service of
undreds of others, and that the contribution in
me and wisdom of the advising and administer-
ig regents of each epoch has had a most important
Judge Claudius B. Grant, '59, who passed away
ionday morning at St. Petersburg, Fla., entered
he administration of the University as a member
f President James R. Angell's first Board of Re-
ents when that great figure of Michigan's past
>ok office in 1871. He was to see and take part
I the inauguration of a golden age in the Uni-
ersity's story which will always be connected with
ie work of Dr. Angell. Judge Grant brought to
ie Board his experience as a lawyer and a stu-
ent of education, coupled with a spirit of loyalty
his Alma Mater which at once bore fruit in the
aming of the law which provided funds to con-
:ruct University hall and the sponsoring through
> passage of the twentieth-mill tax bill for Uni-
ersity support. During his later life he was able
) add to these practical services the reflected
:nor which Michigan derived from his twenty
ears of justiceship in the state supreme court. In
8g5 he passed down the decision which deter-
tined for all time the status of the Board of Re-
ents as the state's only constitutionally created cor-
Yration, and settled the position of the University
relation to the legislature. His best known serv-
e, however, was his chairmanship of the commit-
e which in 1903 began work to raise alumni funds
>r Memorial hall, and brought the plan to sue-
ss with the dedication of the beautiful structure
For Michigan, Judge Grant's life will always
and in memory not only as that of a great lawyer
id useful Regent, but as a type of the ideal alum-
is - the grauate who can hold his practical de-
tion to his University through all later life.
ANOTHER FALLS IN LINE
Coming as a sequel to a successful twenty-eight
ars' trial of the honor system, power of dismissal
r misconduct has been conferred on the Prince-
n Senior council by an unanimous vote of the
.culty. Under the ruling the council will deal
ith cases unmolested by faculty interference and
ill have the right to compel dismissals without
oferring evidence in any cases which "in its esti-
ation tend to lower the moral tone and good
une of Princeton". -
Princeton's progress offers a striking example of
e inherent good sense of solving the problems in
llege life by the application of the sound princi-
es of student self-government. A fair idea of the
ange that has come about since the days of faculty
pervision can be had by comparing the examina-
>ns before .the installation of the honor system,
ien according to Dean McClenahan, "cribbing
s one of Princeton's favorite indoor sports." The
edge of honesty has so reduced the number of
cases of cheating since that time that they can be
counted on two hands for the whole period.
Michigan is well on her way to a similar solution
of campus problems, backed by the declaration of
Dean Joseph A. Bursley that he wishes student self
government to have the largest scope in which it
can successfully work. The set of rules now in for-
mation by Student council committees is being
thought out on the principle of providing a per-
manent system which will become in time tradi-
tional, through the simplicity of its process and the
sureness of enforcement. Every effort of forward-
looking students and faculty members ought cer-
tainly to be devoted to the securing and definite es-
tablishment of such a plan. It is time Michigan
should be up-to-date in this important phase.
We have taken a great step in the honor system
trial. Let us give the government proposals as fair
CHECKING UP THE BRASS CHECK
Significant as an attempt, though a belated one,
to answer the sweeping indictment of the Amer-
ican'press made in "The Brass Check," the recent
Jecture by Dr. James Melvin Lee, director of the
department of journalism of New York university,
is disappointing as being only another incomplete
re'futation of the charges made. Instead of dis-
posing of the accusations once for all, Dr. Lee's
speech only emphasizes the disturbing fact that as
yet no adequate answer has been made by the press.
To date American journalists have usually stop-
ped short after disparaging the reliability of the
author of the book. Some few have gone further
to score the omission of names, dates, and other
information by which the accusations could be
tested. Others, such as Dr. Lee, have shed light on
some parts of the question although failing to bring
forth conclusive proof vindicating modern Ameri-
In the meantime the charges-are gaining wider
circulation daily and menacing the public's faith in
the press. Because they are so slanderous and in-
elusive the fact that they have never been scotched
approximates an admission of their truth. At the1
present time the accusations have gained such a
hearing that regardless of their source they cannot
be disposed of as trivial insults that will be forgot-
ten if ignored.
Should any of them be true there is no doubt
that their seriousness might be greatly mitigated by
explanations of the attending circumstances. One
can have no doubt from reading the book that the
author has missed few opportunities to use his ma-
terial to create the most startling effect, and has
not gone out of his way to supply information op-
posed to his case. In this connection explanation of
why an act was done often gives an entirely new
complexion as to whether or not it was wrong. For
instance some of the alleged suppressions of news
cited are cases of personal telegrams which the As-
sociated Press does not make a practice of distribut-
ing as news.
Scoffing and ignoring the charges has proved a
failure. The time has come for the American press
to produce a complete and conclusive refutation of
the slander, in the form of an exhaustive review of
"The Brass Check" branding its inaccuracies and
setting out the circumstances in each case. The
public is entitled to an explanation and the cloud
will not be removed from American journalism un-
til each falsehood has been nailed, or if admitted
as truth proved to be indicative of a past condition
which has really been altered.

You're probably right, Clarice, when you say
that a man who has money can be a blockhead and
still be good fraternity timber.

Do you think if the '''blue sky" reformers have
their way they will even forbid funerals to be held

Certainly, because those attending might violate
the prohibition laws by passing around the bier.

National Sik Week
FEBRUARY 28 - MARCH 5
NEW SILK FROCKS
$25 - $29.75 - $35
Three lots of dresses have been marked at three very interesting prices
during Silk Week. And they are dresses you can't help liking. Exemplify-
ing as they do the very latest style tendencies, the new silhouette with wide
skirt tendencies, the new silhouette with wide skirt and flaring lines, combined
with rather tight fitting waist, and showing the newest ideas in trimming and
design, these little frocks are visions of loveliness, The materials are satin,
crisp taffeta, soft clinging crepe de chine and Canton crepe. Colors simply
run riot- starting with the ever dependable navy blue, featuring the new craze
for gray, Venetian red and showing, of course, steady stunning black. And
the styles are as varied as the colors. Ruffled skirts, basque waists, flaring
overskirts, sometimes corded with velvet ribbon to emphasize the fullness,
quaint puffed sleeves of georgette, wide collars, making a surplice effect in
front and sashes of many toned ribbon make these little frocks the last word
in style. And nothing need be said about the prices-they speak for them-
selves. (SECOND FLOOR)
