the sentiments ex
search the ranks until we are weary-eyed, curse
venomously, and turn away. Lord, what a Library !
In reality, the Library is thevictim of its:own
virtue. Generously it allows the student unre-
stricted freedom in the use of books from its refer-
ence shelves, shelves which carry one of the most
complete collections of bound information to be
* found anywhere. This freely given privilege has
been abused, and in such a way that the authorities
feel that a total change in policy may be necessary-
heroic measures, perhaps, destroying the disease by
destroying the infected, but som-times a necessary
method-and in this case it may be necessary to
withdraw the privilege altogether in order to elim-
inate the abuse of it.
But the present system is so convenient, so em-
inently workable, as far as students are concerned,
that it would be a pity if it should be replaced by a
more restricted method. To add another red-tape
section to the Library would mean extra work for
the staff and the installation of a clumsy obstacle
to the securing of the books. Only the co-operation
of the students, as individuals, can keep this unde-
sirable move from becoming a necessity.
The responsibility for stopping abuse of the Li-
brary privileges rests with the stud-nts. The care-
less and self-centered must realize that it is their
duty not to deprive .the rest of the campus of its
rights in order to humor their own wants. The Li-
brary is to be used-not abused.F

HONOR TO THE DEBATER'
Though love of action has always been a con-
tributing factor in the popularity of most college
activities, the athlete, as a general rule, has much
less difficulty in gaining recognition on the cam-
pus, by virtue of his pluck and physical endurance,
than does the man who is engaged in such intellec-
tual pursuits as debating. Judge Ira Waite Jayne,
'o5, in introducing the speakers of the Chicago-
Michigan debate last Friday evening stressed this
point when he said, "The winning of a debate does
not arouse such spirit of enthusiasm in a student
body as does a football game, but there is no col-
lege in the United States that does not feel a real
thrill of pride when its team wins a battle of intel-
lect over intellect."
Those who heard the debate had a chance to sense
and sense deeply the true significance of Judge
Jayne's words. He did not say it all, however. The
debater, like the athlete, spends long hours in train-
ing. As the athlete is forced ,to hold his ground be-
fore physical onslaught, so must the debater stand
against intellectual attacks. As the athlete must
watch every move of his Qpponent most carefully,
so must the speaker cautiously observe and weigh
every argument of his adversary.
The Michigan debater deserves cpnsiderably more
recognition for his work than he gets. At Cornell
and other universities iQ the East, the leading de-
baters, like the principal athletes, invariably are
rated among the most distinguished personages on
the campus. This used tp be true at Michigan, and,
with the continued display of such unusual skill and
training, as our Varsity is exhibiting this year, it
would seem that some of the old time enthusiasm
for the combat of wits might be brought back to u -
again before long.

We. don't mind occasional sniffles, and we can
haidly find the heart to complain of a little dose of
"flu" or pneumonia now and then; but we do ob-
ject seriously to having visions of coffins thrust
upon us by negligent campus jatlitoring.
Here and there in Minnesota are
persons of some prominence who seem
to be making it a major study in their
curriculum of citizenship to figure out
ways and means of attacking the state,
through its representatives, for-spend-
ing so much money on higher educa-
tion-notably on the University of Min-
nesota. The chance was not overlook-
ed in the late convention of the farm
bureau federation to deliver a puncr
of this kind.
It is not the purpose here either to
approve or to challenge these critics,
hut to point out the fact that over in
our sister state of M'cbigan there ap-
,peurs to be an unusual'y vigorous pub-
lic sentiment in favor of doing what-
ever can be done with a liberal use
of state money to make and keep the
University of Michigan a going edit-

In the next two years there will be
spent at the University of Michigan
for hgher educational purposes some-
thing over. $14,000,000. In the coming
spring it is contemplated that six or
eight new bui'dings shall be put un-
der way of construction at a total cost
of not less than $5.000,000, and prob-
ably more nearly $7 000,000. With rev-
enue to be available under new state
lq.ws and under other benefactions the
Michigan institution now has the
eauivaent of what would be for a
privately sustained university an en-
-owment of $10 000.000. Harvard's en-
dowment is now about $40.000.000.
It is now the boast of the authorities
f the University of Michigan that the
Day of faculty members is such today
that no man of the teaching corps need
'eave the institution and go elsewhere
on the mere ground that by doing
so he can obtain better pecuniary com-
pensation for equal service.
These things have been made possi-
ble because the governor and the legis-
lature of Michigan made them so, be-
ing convinced, as they were, that the
service of the university is worth all
the money that is used for its support,
and that the people of Michigan as a
whole approve that view and are in a
mood to foot the necessary bills.
