HELP FIND THE SOLUTION
Interested observers of university life - men
who have seen freshman classes come and senior
classes go for a decade or so - are agreed that the
last three or four years have brought monumental
changes in the accepted 'and conventional life of
Michigan. Some say that the war with its conse-
quent broadening of vision, its changes in labor, and
its general antecedent unrest has been the cause -
others are wont to lay the blame in different direc-
tions. But the cause is rather unimportant just
now. The results are so much more manifest, so
much more pertinent and the search for the cause
has so far proved so very unsatisfactory, that to dis-
count results and look for a cause seems to be a
waste of so much good time and words.
We are all agreed that changes have come at
Michigan. We have felt them since, perhaps, the
fall of 1916 when the first unrest preceding the dec-
laration of war made itself felt. We are still at-
tempting to adjust ourselves to them, but the ques-
tion which presents itself so poignantly just now is
the growth of conditions newly-born of changed
laws of conduct.
Last February and March the student body of the
University was subjected to such violent criticisms
and made the object of such severe charges that it
was made apparent to the least interested observer
that somewhere, something was wrong. If the
charges were justifiable, then the fault lay with the
student body - if they were unjust, then they were
the result of short-sightedness and a lack of judg-
ment upon the part of the faculty. Investigations
were conducted - some of them proved fruitful -
others were mere semblances of inquiries, resulting
in many words and further accusations, but no in-
telligent steps were taken towards righting the
faults wherever they might lie until late in March
when the organization of the Student Advisory
Committee was taken up.
Here at last was an important movement towards
an intelligent coping with the problems of the cam-
pus. The committee, composed of four seniors and
two juniors, together with the managing editor of
The Daily, the president of the Union, and the pres-
ident of the Student council as ex-officio members,
was duly elected and has taken up the work of as-
sisting the Dean of Students, with whom it meets
every other Monday, and the Senate Committee on
Student Affairs, to get at the bottom of the ques-
tions which caused the cancellation of last year's
This fall the Student Advisory Committee has
taken up its work. It is attempting honestly and
intelligently to put the students and the faculty
upon a common ground of understanding and until
there exists this reciprocal feeling of trust and of
responsibility as well upon the parts of both bodies,
no semblance of harmony and team-work is possi-
ble. As long as there are students who insist that
the faculty is attempting to "put something over on
them", and as long as there are members of the fac-
ulty in responsible positions who are obsessed with
the idea that every infringement of student rules is
a willful and flagrant breach of trust, the achieve-
ment of any forward and intelligent advance will be
But the problems which the blanket accusation of
the student body early last semester called up -- if
indeed they are still problems - cannot be solved
by any single committee, whether it be composed of
members of the faculty or of students. There were
charges made which were unpleasant and which re-
flected to such an extent upon Michigan that every
student should feel it his duty to do his part towards
clearing himself of them. If they were untrue, then
we should make every effort to prove their fallacious
nature -- if they were true, then surely it should be
our duty to ourselves and to our University to so
change conditions that such an accusation can never
again be made.
It is through the Student Advisory Committee
that these changes can be effected. But that com-
mittee is powerless without the co-operation of
every member of the student body. This is a time
for intelligent and serious thought upon one of the
most vital situations which the University has ever
faced. The Daily through its columns affords every
man the opportunity of expressing himself openly
without fear of having his remarks taken as a per-
sonal affront by anyone. If conditions are in need
of change, then let us change them, but without the
intelligent expression of opinon by members of the
student body, the impossibility of concerted action
is obvious. This is your problem. Will you help
your University to face it?
It was stated in Tuesday's Daily that under a city
taxicab ordinance drivers were allowed to charge 35
cents between the hours of 5 o'clock in the morning
and ii o'clock in the evening, while 50 cents could
be charged from I I o'clock in the evening until 5
o'clock in the morning. .It was said also that the
sum of 15 _cents could be charged for each stop
made between the starting point and the destina-
These figures were incorrect. According to the
regulation drivers may charge 50 cents at all times
for the first passenger,35 cents for each additional
passenger, and 25 cents for each stop made. Party
and theater rates are 50 cents straight.
