At four-fifteen this afternoon the
student pody will convene in Hill
auditorium to hear President Marion
L. Burton deliver a. message of im-
portance o be'taken along tomorrow
when the University dismisses for
Christmas vacation.
These e e 'big days in the life of
the University. Only three days ago
a request for more than seven'mil-
lions of dollars was placed in the
hands of the state administrative board
by this Uiversity in order to carry
on itsexpasion program during the
coming twq years. That money will
not be voted on for appropriation un-
til next spring, but in the meanwhilo

facts rin'be able'to aid in convincing
the' publicof the necessity of grant-
ing these fuds to the University. The
President 'wi1l undoubtedly speak in
regard to :;s matter in the course
of his address.
The holding of a Christmas convo-
cation is a othy custom. It enables
the students to obtain a final sum-
mary of the state of affairs in the
University and a final message in re-
gard to themselves before leaving Ann
Arbor. Itis a sort of pep meeting
so that they may have the proper
spirit in taking Michigan with them
to all parts of the United Sates dur-
ing vacatpn. When they' return it will
be-at the beginning of a new year,
and the .Message delivered them at
Christma convocation might prove
food for thought daring the holidays
and help them to start out anew with
fewer false ideas and a better grasp
of the University situation,
Habitual late-corers might well
hange their tactics in attending the
convocation this afternoon lest they
find themselves crowded out of Hill
auditorium by a capacity house-full of
more r nctua students who have also
realized the importance of the mnes-
sage which awaits them there.
The college student of today is the

pected when he constitutes the future.
That is just what "ultra-modern" edu-
cation is, the fore runner of an "ultra-
modern" age. The plodding student
of an idealistic past will find that his
too close application to the ideal col-
lege education of that past avails him'
an inadequate preparation for the
changed era of the future. Practi-{
cality is the key-note of modern ed-
ucational tendency, a dissatisfaction
with the past and much of the pres-
ent, a spirited spontaneous revolt in
an attemnt to shake off the apathy- and
indifference of the past, an unrest
from pent-up energy which will find its
expression in great endeavors is the
Smythe has rather definite ideas as
to the advisability of fitting literary
form to literary substance. The two
inevitably fit each other in any real
literary work, he believes, and conse-
quently in that demi-monde of litera-
ture, advertising, some attempt should
be made to harmonize them.
But recently Smythe noticed an ex-
cellent bit of editorial writing in a
purely commercial advertisement. The
theme of it was, approximately, "Take
a little college home for Christmas, -
the folks will like it". It was con'-
vincing enough to cause Smythe to
make a resolution, in spite of his true
feeling that he gets enough of col,
lege during the term. After all, he
says, the family should get some ev-
idence that the son is going to col-
lege, other than the monthly flood of
But the idea of presenting a mes-
sage through the advertisement, in-
congruous as it seemed to him at
first, has won Smythe over to the ex-
tent of his smiling tolerantly at it. If
companies must advertise it is well
that they present something related to
literature, something happily possess-
ing more than a mere "punch". As
Smythe says, lie does not like to be
sold anything-he likes to buy it.

(Daily Cardinal)
Every so often some one dares the
attempt to name the six most famous
men or women in the world.
This mania for nrning the six
"best" has 'flow' been extended m
other directidns.
Prof. Albert Bushnell Hart of Har-
vard has kindl'y named for us the six1
best "national" universities. These
six institutions, according to Profes-
sor Hart, are the Universities of Mich-
igan, Yale, Harvard, Cornell, Chicago
and Columbia.
Among the criteria which Professor
Hart designates as those he considers
necessary for a national university to
have are its connection with national
