vrm In Methods Of University Control To Replace "Autocratic Type" I
Proposed In Criticism By fichigan Man In March Issue Of "Survey"



m in university government is,
posal of Dr. John E. Kirkpat-
structor in the political science
ient, in an article appearing in
rch issue of The Survey. The
urges the replacemnt of the
"aristocratic -or autocratic
university government" for a
sible" 'type,

I -

The tendency in American universi-
ANCE ties, according to the author, has, been
to develop an executive government,
Fail to but one of the "responsible" type. "By
of responsible,'." says the writer "is
meant the type of government in
which the executive- is created by and'
subject to the parliament or legisla-
ture." This form of political govern-
jr oyd ment, he declares, furnishes a prom-
as been ising form of educational government
icitation for the American college, which now
i the

fails notably to measure up -to this
desirable standard.
Dr. Kirkpatrick traces the develop-
ment of the American system from
the earliest days, saying that govern-
ment by lay boards, that is, by boards
composed of non-professional men in
an educational sense, grew naturally
out of conditions. A guild of schol-
ars, which grew naturally into y uni-
versity in Europe, could not possibly
appear in a new, frontier country.
Colleges were begun by clergymen
and supported by laymen.' ,
Later on, says the article, business
men began to take the place of the
clergymen, who practically disappear-
ed from college boards. This was due
partially to the spirit of the age and
partially to a need for better organi-
zation. But the university proper, the

faculty, the students, and the alumni,
were allowed no voice.
Dr. Kirkpatrick then quotes Prof.
E. R. Holme, of the University of
Sydney, who was sent to the United
States to make a study of American
institutions of education. Professor
Holme did not report favorably on
the American system. "Its principles
are those of autocracy," he said, "and
its effect isto set one man an impossible
task while exempting all others on
the staff from any comparable re-
sponsibility." Again he stated, "So
long os the president holds the favor
of the board, he can exercise all the
absolute powers it possesses. The re-
sult is to give the university the feel-
ing of being ruled monarchically by
the delegate of a remote, absolute au-

The writer proposes that the facul-
ty be granted a number of powers and
rights, including the formal right to
aprove the budget, to consent to edu-
cational policies and staff appoint-
ments, and to nominate the deans and
the president. "These reforms would
transform our present irresponsible
systems into . responsible govern-
ments," he claims. The boards would
remain as reviewing bodies holding
a suspensive veto.
Student. participation in responsi-
bility is also recommended iii the ar-
ticle, and an alumni body to review'
and advise the acts of the faculty and
board . are also suggested.
None of these things are impractic-
able, it is claimed, since they are al-.
ready in practice in European institu-
tions, and even in a few of our Ameri-
can schools.

Ld the

Unionist Various opinions regarding the sys-
e gener- tem of accrediting the law schools of
.ppening the country, a topic of discussion at
:sters- in the recent meeting of the American
and Mr. Bar association, were expressed' by
reprove local business men and attorneys,
rd Birk- when questioned on the subject yes-
Mr. L. W. Lisle, of the 'law firm of
has yet Lehman and Lisle, stated that he was
d" con- strongly in favor of'any action that
to the would stiffen the requirements for the
ster is bar. "I do not believe in eliminating
present schools merely because they are not of
with the the larger class in the country," said
.ons, in Mr. Lisle, "but I am in favor of mak-
he Free ing, the courses in such schools more
3ndment thorough and fully adequate.
"I do not thin-k that a two-year
college course is essential in every
case, -but it is a good test of the stu-
dent's 'true desire to enter the legal
SNIprofession, especially if he must work
1 his way through schools."
U 1 Mr. Frank Jones, on being question-
ed in his offices in the Ann Arbor Sav-
ings bank building took rather a differ-
SPRAC- Ant stand. "To me the chief difficul-'
ty is that the large law schools at pre-
sent attempt to turn out the finished
product, the hundred dollar a day man
M" men at graduation, which of course is im-
r insig- possible in any school. Jefferson, Lin-
setting coln, and in our day MacAdoo, had not
'e to be a college education, yet they are the
day all finest types of legal men the has ever
Sin any seen."
ir it on R. O. Bonisteel, who has offices in
the First National bank, building, said
e start- that the accrediting of certain law
y, the schools would undoubtedly raise the
by ath- standard of the legal profession, and
iderable that a two years college course, while
and un- not absolutely necessary, in nany
raluable cases was valuable for the broadening;
bsolete. effect it had upon the man. He add-
leclared ed, however, "Admittance to the bar
y ways, by state examinations is the best'
men to means for assuring the legal safety
ing dig- of the public."
chigafl's . _ _ _
at the P

(By M. E. Gordon)
Presenting a bill that could only be
rivalled by the professional stage,
Mimes' first venture into vaudeville
scored an unqualified success last:
night at the Mimes theater. From the
opening of the first act to the drop of
the curtain the audience was kept in
continual laugher and showed its ap-
preciation for the extraordinary qual-
ity of the acts in such- a manner that
the establishmen of Mimes vaudeville
on the campus is practically an as-
sured fact.
James J. Johnson, '23, accompanied
by William Kratz, '24, was the hit of
the evening. His parodies brought
forth a tremendous round of ap-
plause, encore following encore.
Extremely odd and differenjt was the,
spiritualist act presented by Donald
Coney, '24, William Randall, grad., and
Marshall Spencer, '24. The acting was
especially effective and kept the audi-

ence in suspense to the very end of
the skit.
William Michaels, '22, of opera
fame, was entertaining in black-face
monologue, while Myron E. Chon, '23,
playing the saxophone, accompanied
by Edwin R. Meiss, '23, featured in
several numbers.
The policeman as a source,of laugh-
ter came in for his share in a well
balanced act by George Buchanan, '23,
and Emil Larson, '23.
"You Got It" as sung by John L.
Walter, '23, and Gordon D. Wier, '24,
was well received by tIhe audience.
Wier, taking a feminine role, acted
with exereme effectiveness.
The lighting and scenic effects of
the entire show were extremely pleas-
ing. The theater is constructed with
facilities that, to all. appearances, riv-
al the appointments of large profes-
sional playhouses.
Another show, which will be open
to both men and women, will be put-
on by Mimes at 8 o'clock this eve-

Emery Declares
University a s
Wide Reputation
"When travelling . throughout the
country I found that our state was
advertised in the best way by the Uni-
versity of Michigan," said Major John
C. Emery, national past commander
of the American legion, who was in
Ann, Arbor for the day yesterday.
"And I think the general pride of the
people of the- state in the University
makes it what it is."
Drew Up Bon s Bill
Major Emery is one of the five men
who originated the four-fold bill for
the soldier bonus, and consequently is
a staunch advocate of the measure. "I
think that 90 per cent of the men will
be in favor of the insurance in place
of other considerations," he said. "I
would rather think of the bill as an ad-
justment of compensation than as a
bonus bill."
"The American legion will be the
greatest single unit working for better
government in the United States," ac-
cording to Major Emery. "At present
in its infancy and perhaps somewhat
impulsive, as the average age of its
members is only 26 years, it has the
right foundations and will become a
determining factor in American life.
The need for tho erganization will not
decrease and it will be more essential'
25. years hence than at ,the present,
Major Emery, who has announced
his candidacy for United States sena-
tor, stated that Newb'erryism has not
so much disgraced the state as it has
the Republican party, and declared
that the Republicans "should clean up
from within before the Democrats do
it from outside."
Guest of Shriners
The University Shrine club invited
Major Emery as its guest last evening.
He told in a short talk of the pilgrim-
age of the American legion to France
last fall, describing the trip by 100
ex-soldiers from every state in the
Union, on the famous "George Wash-
ington.". There was a reception held
for them at Paris and the birthplace
of the Legion was visited. They were
present at the dedication, and unveil-
ing of a monument to Joan of Arc at
Orleans and visited the birthplace of
Marshal Foch.
He stated that the American soldiers
in Germany were living as princes, as
one American dollar was worth more
than 330 marks. In place of court
martial among these soldiers, he says,
they threaten to send them back to the

Fine Work Done
In Concert IBy
High Glee Clubs
Something well. worth while and
highly enjoyable in itself, was the{
unanimous comment of those who
attended the first annual concert of the
Ann Arbor High School Glee-clubs
at Pattengill auditorium last night.
The "Pilgrims' Chorus" and the
"Purple and White" as sung by the
combined clubs were excellent fea-
tures of the program, showing the
results of conscientious preparation
under the careful direction of George
0. Bowen, of the School of Music.
Simplicity and a feeling of pure
joyousness characterized the andante
movement of Hayden's "Surprise Sym-
pony," the first number of the orches--
tra. In the "Minuet" by Mozart ele-
gance of style and atmospheric" color
prevailed. The final selections from
Il Trovatore made the greatest ap-
peal to the audience. .
Of the solo numbers, the violin
pieces of Howard Rufus were decided-
ly the , best. His interpretation of
Massenet, "Meditation" showed pure
tone, careful phrasing, and certainty
of intonation. Miss Hope Bower
charmed her audienc e with Penn's
"Smilin' Through,' her lyric soprano
voice and unaffected manner winning'
instant favor..
"Ole Uncle Moon'' was the most at-
tractive number of the Boys' Glee
club, while "Young Lovel's Bride"
won greatest applause as the best
number of the Girls' Glee club.,

Cash Feature to Be Cut Where Total
Due Is More Than
$ 0
Washington, March 3.-A compro-
mise soldiers' bonus plan under which
the cash feature would be eliminated
where the former service man would
be entitled to more than $50 adjusted
service pay has been agreed on ten-
tatively, but unanimously, by a spe-
cial sub-committee of the Republican
members of the house ways and means
In the nature of a substitute for the
discarded cash feature there would be
added to the adjusted service certifl-
cate title a provision which would en-
able the men selecting the certificate
option to obtain" immediately from
batiks a loan equal to one-half of the
adjusted service pay to which they
would' be; entitled on the basis of
$1 a day for domestic service and
$1.25 a day for overseas service.
In annoulncg the cmpromise
agreement, Chairman Fgrdney s'aid
it probably would be a week before
all details of the loan provision
could be worked out and the original
bill amended to conform to it. He
expressed the opinion that the plan
would be so well, received by house
members generally that it would not
be necessary to submit the new bill
to a party conference, thus speed-
ing up the time of its submission
to the house.

An epidemic of what is taken as a
mild type of influenza or winter colds
has been prevailing among the stu-'
dent body during the. past few days.
Although no serious cases, and no
pneumonia have been reported, the
University Health service has been
making a number of calls. Most of
the cases are of a peculiar type that
requires rest for two dr three days to
bring about a cure.
Dr. W. E. Forsythe,' director of the
Health service, recommends that stu-
dents troubled with these colds go im-
mediately to bed, eat little food, fruits
being best in these cases, and drink a
great deal of water. It is also benefic-
ial to gargle the throat with a glass ofI
