A BOAT CREW ON THE POND
From time immemorial the establishment of row-
ing as a Varsity sport at Michigan has been agi-
tated and.now the movement has reached its culmi-
nation in the form of a student petition sent in to
the Athletic association, asking that plans be inaug-
urated for the using of Barton pond as a course,
to the end that Michigan may be represented on the
water in the near future as other universities have
been in the past.
The pond, surveyed some time ago with the same
end in view, is said by many to be one of the finest
water courses in this part of the country ; still it has
never yet felt the weight even of a scull. Appar-
ently, the money expenditures neceessary to obtain
trainers and equipment have in the past held up
progress. Some two years ago steps taken by a cer-
tain group of enthusiastic students toward placing
an impromptu crew on the pond, though ending in
failure, marked the nearest successful real attempt
to approach the project in a materially practicable
Now, however, outward signs would seem to in-
dicate that the time has come for the taking of
some action by the authorities on this matter of row-
ing at Michigan. At present we have more than the
course itself at our disposal. Two men from the
Detroit Boat club, one a student, have volunteered
their services as coach and assistant coach; and the
petition recently turned in goes to show that not
only would it be possible to establish a crew here
without the outlay of prohibitive sums of money,
but that competition could well be arranged with
any number of other crews, notably those from
Wisconsin, Toronto, Syracuse, and seven boat clubs
relatively near at hand.
With such possibilities offered her for the set-
ting up of rowing as a Michigan sport, it would be
a misfortune if the Univeersity should fail to make
the most of her opportunities. Rowing has come
to be one of few forms of competition to be recog-
nized by organizations and institutions of learning
the world over. With track events, it forms the
basis of international athletics, and is coming to be
one of the most favored of all sports by schools
which haye at hand the required facilities.
With one of the best possible courses available,
and with some twenty-five trained oarsmen en-
rolled here, Michigan has the finest prospects for a
successful entry in this field of competition. Now is
the time to-make the best of them.
FOR STATE AND CIVILIZATION
The impasse in the Irish situation, in recent dec-
ades, has been between southern Ireland and Ulster,
on both religious and economic grounds. Other is-
sues there have been, and Great Britain has had her
share in creating them; yet Britain has more and
more evidenced a desire to remove causes of fric-
tion. wlhpre a vriv affetntfurl n.1A t~m,..+ ^rT..-
land's political status has been upset by the refusal
of either North or South to accept it.
Today, as never before, world conditions demand
liberal views, and it has become obvious that the hos-
tility between Ireland and Ulster must be modified,
or circumvented, in the interest of geneeral prog-
ress. The recent treaty between Britain and Ire-
land signalizes a manly willingness to look ahead,
rather than back, in order to gain certain definite
desirable ends. Britain has decided to trust Ireland
with self-government, equally with Canada and
other states in the British empire. Ireland, while
desiring absolute national independence, has agreed
to accept Britain's proposals, as a progressive step.
Together they have made provision whereby Ulster
may by her own choice either become a part of the
new Irish Free State or become likewise a separate
government with judicially established boundaries.
The treaty as made remains to be ratified by the
two governments, and it is confidently hoped that
ratification will occur within a few days. In that
event, it is also confidently expected that Ulster and
Ireland together will evince the same forward-look-
ing, patriotic spirit which made the new treaty pos-
sible, and that either in union or as neighbor states
these doughty peoples will henceforth co-operate.
ATHLETICS FOR ALL
The intramural department is hitting the bull's-
eye pretty regularly these days, with the institution
of cross counry runs, basketball leagues which in-
clude almost the entire campus, and the invention
of "speed ball". On the heels of these three inno-
vations comes the announcement that free skating
will be provided for every University student dur-
ing the winter, accompanied by the expressed hope
that free swimming can be provided.
This activity of the intramural department is a
healthy sign. The present system of vicarious ath-
letics where a chosen few who are already physi-
cally fit represent a student body of eight thousand
while the eight thousand sit passively by, content to
watch amusement of someone else, is certainly not.
akin to the ideal of the greatest good for the great-
est number. "Athletics for all" is a worthy slogan
which the department seems to have adopted for its
The method of instituting competitive athletics
and arousing student interest is far superior in get-
ting students to exercise than the compulsory gym-
nastic system some colleges have devised. Both are
beneficial, but the interest of the student in volun-
tary athletics far outbalances the mechanical mo-
tions of formal calisthenics, and is certain to do as
much to keep him physically fit.
The Netherlands is interesting for three things:
its literary reaction to the modern tendency in let-
ters, its remarkable and original colonial system,
and the art heritage it possesses from the seven-
teenth and eighteenth centuries. All three of these
will be treated in University lectures in Natural
Science auditorium today, tomorrow, and Thurs-
day, by Dr. A. J. Barnouw, Queen Wilhelmina lec-
turer at Columbia university. Here is an oppor-
tunity to learn from authoritative lips the actual
facts pertaing to the art, literaure, and colonial pol-
icy of his tiny, but vigorous cuntry.
