As long as human beings are human, of course.
and newspapers are newspapers, the unusual will
be played up at the expense of the usual. This is
to be expected, even while it is to be deprecated.
But while the rational investigator remains to dis-
count journalistic "colour", and interpret the col-

not do much real harm. It is enough that' colleges

EDUCATING VIA THE ETHER
Science once agin has come to the aid of educa-
tion. By the .means of the radiophone on the De-
troit} News building, a series of five University
Extension lectures will be sent out, one each week,
over the wide radius covered by the News sending
apparatus Public health, public education, and late
developments in the sciences will be the subjects
ttouched upon by members of . the Michigan faculty
who Will give the talks. The heaviest stress will be
placed on the health lectures, which are in line with
the campaign now under way to disseminate fun-
damental points of pudlic hygiene to people through-
out the state.
The plan is' worthy of the trial. Perhaps it may
prove a very pracicable means of giving the advan-
prove a very practicable means of giving the advan~-
not able to take the regular work at Ann Arbor, and
who have not as yet been interested in the Univer-
sity Extension service. The plan recommends itself
because of the fact that these lectures will circu-
late broadcast' over much of the United States, and
because radiophones are plentiful enough to enable
all who are interested to hear the iiformation given.
The most probable drawback lies in the fact 'that
the average radiophone enthusiast is apt t ,be in-
terested in radio lectures only because they are sent
out by radio, not because they contain 'anything of
vital importance to him personally. He is playing
with wireless for the most part, and the transmit-
ting stations are taking advantage of his enthusi-
asnI to give themselves some very desirable adver-
tising. Furthermore, the presence of "static" and
and other forms of interference will doubtless de-
tract greatly from the effectiveness of the lectures.
Still, they may do a great deal of good, and may
ultimately have some effect in popularizing educa-
tion. The lecture plan of the University Exten-
sion service may be watched with much interest, for
what it may possibly lead to.in the future.
DEAN W. H. BUTTS.
The announcement that Assistant Dean William
Henry Butts, of the engineering college, has re-
tired, presents to Michigan the problem of finding
someone to fill the place of another very able mem-
ber of the University faculty. Dean Butts has been'
connected with affair here since i898. Graduated-
from the literary college in 1878, he has served for
forty-one years as a teacher, and during this time
for fourteen years as assistant dean.
Here on the campus, Dean Butts has earned for
himself a truly enviable reputation for "playing
square with the students" - and an ability to meet
the most irresponsible undergraduate with unbiased
fairness, is the sure mark of an able teacher and
man. "He has been a valuable men, and his loss
will be a serious blow to the departient," says
Dean Cooley. But the studeits will say even more
than this. Dean Butts will be missed by he under-

SCORE ONE FOR THE U. OF N.
There is ample evidence that the
Rhodes scholars from the UAited
States very creditably hold their own
at Orford university. Although they
compete there with students from
ma/ny lands, all of whom have been
chosen because of excellent records in
universities in their own lands, our
American students have always
brought honor to the universities and
colleges from which they were select-
The University of Michigan's repre-
selitative for 191$, Ralph W. Carson
has established a record at Oxford un-
iversity which more than justifies the
pride which our state school's stu-
dents and alumnl"take in her. Mr.
Carson has made his way to the pres-
idency of the Oxford International As-
sembly, as well as to that of the Ox-
The winning of either of these dis-
tinctions would have been an achieve-
ment significant enough; the cautr-
ing of both of them is evidence of eX-
ceptional merit. The presidency of
the Oxford Union implies that the in-
cumbent is the carefully selected can-
didate from a group of students from
many lands, every one of whom is at
Oxford because of specialhmerit. It
is by no 'means an empty honor.
Mr. Carson's achievement at Oxford
reflects credit not only on himself;
his Alma Mater shares in the distinc-
tions he has won. He has furnished
evidence that the American college
educates for leadership.
TRAINING, HIGH AND LOW
(Ohio State Lantern)
Insome circles,surprising as it may
seem, the assumption yet persists that
college training is unnecessary.
Thus the New York Times opposes
a suggestion that two years of col-
lege be required of a candidate for the
practice of law. While the Times
gives a specific reason for its stand,
namely, that such a restriction would
keep rugged and sturdy characters

alities of modern educational oppor-
