(From the Current Student Ditectory)1
"Annually the editor is called upon
to make use of what literary ability he
has in a foreword-the only time dur-
ing his years on the staff that such a
necessity arises. It is extremely
doubtful if anyone will ever read
this, outside of whoever corrects the
proof, yet the editor is overpowered
by, custom and herewith desires to
present a formal apology for whatever
errors may be present in this issue.
The staff has done their work to the
best of their ability and were exceed-
ingly careful to avoid mistakes, if hu-
manly possible. At this point the edi-
tor desires to make the annual stereo-
typed remark which never seems to
bring forth better results, very proba-
bly because nobody ever sees it. The
errors that do creep in are in a large
measure due to the incomplete and in-
accurate information given by the
student and often to writing which is
not legible."

The grand jury at Upper Sandusky
has returned indictments against offi-
cers at Cary, Ohio, for their part in.
the shooting of a Michigan student
the weekend of the Ohio State game.
Whether or not the officers n question
are found to be guilty of the charge
against them, the returning of indict-
ments signifies that the courts are be-
ginning to take cognizance of the fact
that policemen, as well as ordinary
citizens, are accountable to the law.
Too many officers in the employ of
municipalities fail to realize that the
power entrusted to them in the carry-
ing of a gun places upon them a grave
responsibility which they must ob-
serve. They are employed to protect
the public. A careless and indiscreet
use of the gun in supposedly perform-
ing their duties makes them rather a
menace to society than a protector.
Fortunately the recent shooting in-
cident, though causing a serious in-
jury, was not fatal in character. Last
summer, however, a Michigan student
was killed by an officer in an unjusti-
fled and unnecessary shooting. Other
cases of a like nature have occurred
throughout the country. Policemen
should be chosen for coolness and in-
telligence. In the exercise of their,
office they should be firm and iscreet.
If they are to lose their presence of
mind and use disciplinary methods of a
severity which the occasion does not
warrant, the consequences often are
worse than those caused by a complete
negligence of duty.

involve some article which is of value;
to the student body. And yet, it isI
only natural that in the midst of this
constant encounter with campus sales-
men the average student begins to
think that he is being unnecessarily
After all, this is somewhat true. With
so many organizations and enterprises
selling things the campus must be
used not as a place to urge students
to buy but rather as a place where an
article for sale can be displayed to stu-
dents who can then decide for them-
selves whether or not they care to ac-
quire it. The flooding of the campus
with student magazine-venders or the
employing of newsboy methods of vo-
ciferation, only annoy the prospective
buyer, and in the end do harm not,
only to the enterprise which has com-
mitted the offense, but to all others as
It is time that students use the cam-
pus 'more discreetly in the exercise of
their privilege to conduct sales there.
Every professor has his own indi-
viddal idea of the proper way to de-
liver his lectures. His material is or-
ganized in the way which he considers
best, and to persuade him to change
his method of lecturing would be dif-.
ficult. Nevertheless, it is worth while
observing that an obvious error on the
part of a few professors is the keep-
ing of the most important and essen-
tial part of the lecture material for
the close of the hour.
Occasionally a professor is found to
lecture for forty-five minutes on intro-
ductory material which the class rec-
ognizes as interesting but not funda-
mental; the last fifteen minutes is then
given over to the significant mate-
rial,-the really vital part of the lec-
ture is given at the period when the
class has begun to grow restless and
inattentive. Resorting to this system
of lecturing in afternoon classes is
particularly undesirable, for it is dur-
Ing the afternoon classes that concen-1
tration is most difficult. A consider-
able number of students in any class
may be able to concentrate their at-
tention on the lecture for one com-
plete hour. But others in the class
grow restless after the first forty-five,
minutes. They take out their watches,
begin to talk to their neighbors, or
shuffle their feet. They not only miss
the last part of the lecture, but they
distract the attention of the rest of
the class.
If professors were to recognize this
psychology of the class room, it is
likely that they would not reserve the
truly vital part of their lecture for the
last ten or fifteen minutes of the hour.
As they have said so ably in the
many years gone by, "Now's the time
to buy your 'Ensian."
For the sake of those who may not
know, "'Ensan" is the familiar term
for "Michiganensian", the official stu-
dent year book of the University.

(The Dartmouth)
We are reprinting today an editorial
from the Philadelphia Public Ledger,!
the first of a series written by Presi-
dent.Hopkins in elaboration of the
more important points contained in his
address at the opening of the college
year. These articles by the President
are of particular significance at this
time when the educational policies
enunciated by him a month ago are be-
ing made the subject of extensive dis-
cussion in every section of the coun-
try. It is gratifying to have this fur-
ther statement of conviction by Presi-
dent Hopkins himself, as there is no
man better able to formulate in deft-
nite terms the policies to which Dart-
mouth has committed itself, and for
the propagation of which the College
intends to work during the coming
It is' of interest to note at this point
that the great majority of adverse
criticism of the President's opening
address has come from the officers of
state institutions which by the nature
of their foundation are not dependent5
on private endowment for funds with
which to expand either in number ofj
students or in curriculum. Inasmuch
as their expenses are met by public
appropriation, thereby opening for.
them a field of almost unlimited en-1
largement, they are not confrontedI
with the problem of keeping their en-
rollments within any prescribed figure.
They can continue to grow without
check as long as the public feels a
need for more college education for
itself. "College for all" is their poli-
cy; and well it may be since the pub-
lic is footing the bill.
It is not a theory that confronts the
colleges of private endowment; there
is a practical problem brought about
by the unprecedented popularity of the
colleges at the present time. Dart-
mouth was the first to feel the need of
a definite selective process by which it
could assure itself of " choosing the
comparatively few men best fitted to
take advantage of the opportunities it
offers. Other institutions are follow-
Ing; and if present tendencies contin-
ue we believe the time will soon come
when every private institution will be
forced to adopt some such system as
that put into operation this year' by
Dartmouth. It is not a question of
what the colleges wish to do; it is
what they have to do.
There is another phase which has
become increasingly apparent to collge
administrators during recent years but
which still appears to be outside the
calculations of many of our state-sup-
ported institutions. It is the natural
desire of the colleges to obtain for
themselves the men best adapted to
the carrying out of its purposes. No
dead wood is wanted. A man not in
sympathy with the educational purpos-
es of a college is nothing more than
a drag upon it; he is receiving-either

The confirmed addict to the note-
taking habit is as helpless without his
loose-leaf sheets as a "coke" fiend
without his "snow." It paralyzes his
thinking capacity. He is lost. He
cannot find the key to his knowledge.
Which leads us to suspect that when
the note-book is thrown into the gar-
bage can after the finals, the student
is as free from the taint of knowledge
as he was before taking the course.
The point of this editorial is rather
vague. The moral is not: the diligent
note-taker usually drags down his A.,
