Convocation.
COOPERATION THROTJGH UNDER-
STANDING
1Cooperation is necessary in all in-
stitutions if a firm basis for worth-
while work is to be achieved. Business
enterprises have felt this vital need
and have opened the way for a close
relation ship between the heads of in-
stitutions and their workers. The Uni-
versity is a business institution in a.
sense and the necessity for coopera-
tion between the students andthe ad-
muinistrative officers is particularly
keen, even more so than in any busi-,
ness enterprise for, in the University
the administration is for the students
and their best interests and, lacking
a thorough and complete knowledge of
the student mind, the administration
must fail in the true purpose of its
existence. The purpose and methods
of administrative officers, in so far as
they concern the students, should at
all times be placed before the Uni-
versity because only in this way can
a true appreciation of the adminis-!
trative work be arrived at by those for
whom it is primarily intended and the
proper cooperation achieved through
complete understanding on both sides.
The University convocation is one
means of establishing a common
ground of understanding between all I
the members of the University, and, as
such, it has been edvocated by stu-
dent governing bodies for several
years past. Other steps must sup-
plement the convocation to achieve
complete unity of thought but thisl
gathering is a long step in the right
direction. The real trouble of the Un-
iversity lies in the limited number of!
such steps that were taken as the
school grew in size.

nature featured to-day's testimony at
the senate committee investigation of
the senate..
In a two hours session replete with
thrillers Miss Roxie Stinson divorced
wife of Smith, friend of the attorney
general, testified that Smith had told
her that he and Mr. Daugherty stood
to make $180,000 through showing of
the Carpentier prize fight pictures
which they would permit.
Miss Stinson followed that by relat-
ing a conversation between Mr. Smith
and Joe Weber, the actor which relat-
ed to getting a parole for Weber's
brother-in-law, "a Mr. Solomon" at
the conclusion of which Smith told
her Weber was awfully cheap and
"wanted a lot for nothing."
Whisky, she said, she knew had been
withdrawn from government ware-t
houses soon after Mr. Daugherty took
office as attorney general but they
soon stopped that because "because
they got afraid."
