not Michigan, but the federal government, must as-
sume responsibility for the absence of this aroma.
"It is a little sad," the writer further remarks, a
he dwells on the traditional Ann Arbor, "a little
hard to realize that. these Hyperborean spirits are
now staid, gray headed, Puritanical outwardly, pred-
atory inwardly, bereft of the fine carelessness of
youth." Sad and hard, indeed; but without haz-
arding any statement as to the, inward nature of
Michigan alumni, it may here be pointed out that,
so far as their outward demeanor is concerned, this
change in them is characteristic of aging mankind
everywhere. This Eaton no doubt realizes.
In his closing description of students and faculty,
the writer concedes that his picture is typical, "typ-
ical not only of the Middle Western university, but
of all the great American schools". Certainly when
he finds genius rare and the majority of students
more ambitious than able, he touches on our com-
mon imperfection. What he has to say of the fac-
ulty is more nearly an individual criticism of Mich-
igan, yet his strictures are so worded that anyone
attempting a rejoinder would be likely to discover
himself defending, not Michigan professors, but
idealism, democracy, the church, a fondness for Vic-
torian literature, and sundry other ideas and insti-
tutions that are in no sense the peculiar property of
None of the foregoing implies that Eaton has not
hit upon several matters worth serious attention.
The control of American education by tax-payers is
not without dangerous possibilities. College organ-
izations and publications always 'offer room for im-
provement. It is unfortunate that, in 'state univer-
sities mature stu'dents sometimes must submit to;
rules designed for adolescents. It is disquieting
that, in the present, popularization of education,
some mediocre young people are coming to univer-
sities to attempt work for which they are unfitted.
-It i's tragic, finally, that everywhere men are grow-
ing old.
These, however, are the problems of Michigan
'only as they are the problems of all Americans, or
even of all mankind. What the writer has actually
done is to publish his opinion of the Eighteenth
amendment, of public education and several other
dominant ideals of American life, and further, to
record his flat disapproval of that order of things
which decrees a youth-age cycle and a general high
average of stupidity, even among the young. His
speculations are interesting; but, regardless of the
caption under which he writes, he is not discussing
the University. Michigan has no occasion to go ?n
the defensive.
It is indeed strange that so many otherwise bright
young gentlemen should regard the gymnasium
solely as a place where they can watch the athletes'

s a poor institution that cannot bear criticism.
, therefore, G. D. Eaton, an undergraduate of
niversity, presented in the current number of
nart Set, what purported to be a criticism of
gan, thoughtful University readers, so far
being perturbed at his arraignment, should
accorded it careful analysis. And now that
:wo weeks have passed since the publication of
ticle which brpught upon itself such a flood
:icism, pro and con, it is possible to consider
uation with some element of perspective, and
sent a far more dispassionate - review than
have been possible at an earlier date.
>n's principal charges are these: life at Michi-
as lost its old picturesqueness ; University
ations are dominated by the faculty; the cam-
over-organized into fraternities and clubs, the
"faculty run"; the personal freedom of stu-
particularly women, is unjustifiably inter,
with; the members of the, faculty are "silly
[ealistic", and know "too little in their own
; and the students' "ambitions far out-run
abilities", with "only a flicker of genius here
se accusations are not couched in suave lan-
and at first reading they tend to pain or an,-
riends of Michigan. Yet further reflection

;an, as Michigan, need not concern herself
sly with the Smart Set article.'
t which Eaton most resents in University life
interference with the freedom of students to

ance requirements, and like evidences of a
isory policy. This policy he correctly traces
influence of Michigan taxpayers. To Michi-

ely, the parents of these boys and girls prefer,

,an, although those who have had experience
tudent executive ability might choose to'ex-
t on purely practical grounds, has its real ori-
the same desire of tax-payers to have olden
at the helm. Essentially the same, and often
aore stringent, supervision may be found at
ate university. That is, these universities are
stered on the principle that those who pay
: dinner shall have the ordering of it. It may
a just conception; but it is in force through-
United States, and ultimately determines the
emnt of all public education in this country.
umably Eaton attaches less importance to
ssing of picturesqueness in Ann Arbor than
interference with student freedom, but he
occasion to censure the tameness of Univer-
e, as being evidence of a lack of spirit and

of state tax-payers, he appears to ascribe its
stre hue principally to the lack of those
