Editor, Th Michigan Daily:
The curious communication of
Mr. Baghdolan has been brought to my
attention on my return to town Had
he done me the obvious courtesy of
consulting me ere rushing into print,
he might have saved much trouble,
to say nothing of misconception. As
it is, he has left me no recourse but
to address this open letter to him
through yur columns.
R. M. WENLEY
Dear Sir:-
Had you been considerate enough
to consult me ere writing to The Daily,
it is just possible you might have
learned some things which you have
forgotten or, perhaps, did not know.
Principle Forgtfen
(1) You have forgotten a principle.
For scholars and investigators there
are no "English," or "American," or
other divisions. Scholarship is inter-
national. All we seek is the best, no
matter where produced. For example,
I am powerless when confronted with
the circumstance that the Germans
have no rivals in history or philoso-
phy.
(2) You have forgotten cold facts.
This year, for instance, I have pre-
scribed four books in my public class-
es: 75 per cent of them are of "Amer-
ican" authorship.
(i) You have forgotten that, in se-
lecting books, I must take price into
consideration. Bosanquet's larger work
is listed at $8.80; Hobhouse's' costs
more
(4) You have forgotten the charac-
ter of my courses in ethics and phil-
r sophy of religion. They are large
lecture courses where personal super-
vision of students is out of the ques-
tion. The only serious work they can
do is on the monograph (I never pre-
scribe 'text-books,' if I can avoid it).
I expect members of the classes to
double the time in class over the book.
That is I expect them to spend four
hours per week per semester on it.
Thus, I should expect them to look up
Hobhouse's and Bosanquet's other
works. This would occur to any.
thorough student without so much as
a hint. The new book by Hobhouse,
now in use, is in the judgment of many
the best thing he has done. He es-
capes more phenomenology in it. I
agree with this view. The grounds for
prescribing it are simply that it is the
best, and that he has given other good
things which may be read alongside.
The same is even more true of Bosan-
quet.
Some British Works Good
() You have forgotten that, seeing
we, read English, present circm-
stances are such as to place a pre-
mium on philosophical books of Brt-
ish (not "English") origin. Philosophy
has never been so active throughout
the Empire. In metaphysics, ethics,
higher logic, political philosophy, and
philosophy of religion particularly, we
have developed no group of men who
can quite stand comparison with the
following:
In England: Alexander, Barker,
Bosanquet, Bradley (the greatest liv-
ing philosopher), Hohouse, Hoernle,
Joachim, Johnson, McTaggart, Russell,
Ward, Webb, Wolf.
In Scotland: Baillie, Balfour, Prin-
gle, Pattison, Norman, Smith, Stout,
Taylor.
CERCLE FRANCAIS
ANNOUNCES PLAY
"La Belle Aventure," a comedy in
three acts by De Caillavet, De Flers,
and Rey, is announced by Cercle Fran-
cais as its annual French play. When
first produced in Paris in 1913, at the
"Vaudeville,' it was proclaimed unani-
mously by all critics to be the comedy
masterpiece o the century.
The cast, composed of 30 advanced
students in French, has been rehears-
ing for over two months and is already
attaining a high degree of proficiency,
although it is not expected that the
play will be presented before May 11.
Aspecial souvenir edition of the
play is inthe course ofpieparation,
and will be on sale at the book stores

at an early date.
