In accepting the Albert M. Todd
gift, the University of Michigan is
taking another step toward complet-
ing her collection of rare specimens
of art. The gift is composed of a
group of paintings by modern Eng-
lish, French, and American artists,
and of a collection of books on the
arts, natural science, and some excel-
lent examples of early printing. One
of the outstanding volumes of the
latter group is a Koran, dating from
the early years of the sixteenth cen-
tury. A committee of five men is to
have charge of the gift, and in order
to receive it, Alumni Memorial hall
is to be redecorated.
It seems as if, after much effort, the
University of Michigan will become
the recognized cultural center of the
western colleges Our art collections
are second to none, and these, added
to the stimulus which an architec-
turally beautiful campus might af-
ford would be a source of moral up-
lift to the student, an aesthetic joy to
all who have the opportunity of spend-
ing four years on this campus

come, one cannot help feeling a little
uncertainty as to the effect of the
new surroundings on the student

ure up to the excellence of the struct-

Considerable progress was made inj
last year's efforts to raise funds forj
the Women's League building. A
praiseworthy willingness to work and
to sacrifice in the cause of the new
structure was evidenced in individ-
uals and groups. But there is one
thing which has continually been
lacking among the women of }the
University which, despite individual
and group loyalty; prevents their ob-
taining -the greatest returns from their
efforts. That thing is co-operation.
Women students seem to fail to real-
ize the importance of the whole mass
working together, when a common end
is in view. The Women's League
building is. to be for all the women
of Michigan, and unitedly and co-op-
eratively, not singly and independent-
ly, the women m st strive towards
its realization.
Perhaps the individualistic attitude
which exists is not altogether the
fault of the women, but rather of
the nature of the league itself. If the
extent to which the average woman
student is to participate in the
league is gauged by the weekly re-
ceptions and the annual meetings to
elect officers, her, interest in the or-
ganization cannot become a deep one.
On the other hand executive ques-
tion; can hardly be placed success-
fully at the discretion of so large a
Obviously, only one way presents
itself for uniting the women in the in-
terest of the league and the Univer-
sity as. a whole, rather than in indi-
vidual competition. Somneday, per-
haps not far distant, the women's
building will serve to provide an ad-
equate place for the students 'tohcome
into daily contact, with each other, to,
express themselves, and interchange
opinions Until that time, the league
should attempt to establish some tem-
porary headquarters, - corresponding
to the old Union of the men before the
new one was erected, some center of
their activities where the women of
the University will meet from day to
The achievement of such a tempor-

At Northwestern university they are
instituting a course in the improve-
ment of personality, which every stu-
dent will be encouraged to take.
As to whether personality is a thing
which 'can be dealt with srfccess-
fully in the, classroom, much differ-
ence of opinion exists. The authori-
ties at Northwestern are apparently
certain that the course will be of
great benefit to students.
Personality is more or less an ab-
stract thing, which can quickly be
discerned in persons who possess
it, but which ins more or less difficult
to analyze. Many people believe that
this personal quality is born into an
individual and rarely acquired
through instrugtion. Few would
deny, however, that personality can
be developed immeasurably through
proper association with persons of
natural magnetic qualities.
The claim is advanced that the
course should show many students
how to improve their personal ap-
pearance, their dress, and their man-
ner;3. If it does this, no doubt a real
end will be served A considerable
number of students have slovenly hab-
its and mannersawhich could betcor-
rected to advantage. Often their
friends notice these deficiencies, but
dare not mentionthem, fearing that
they might be misunderstood. If an
expert along these lines were to in-
form them of these deficiencies they
would probably not be offended, and
might correct habits which if allowed
to continue would be a serious detri-
ment to them in later life.
There are certain elements in an
individual's personality which could
not profitably be tampered with. But
nevertheless, an idea such as this
