rather to make them more useful cit-

world. The close contact which these
students have with their English cou-'
sins during their time at Oxford gives
them an insight into the thoughts and

Whatever part the Rhodes scholars'
may take in the direction of the af-
fairs of the United States is not blind-
ly ignorant but rather founded on an
intelligent study of at least one na-
tion other than their own.
Any attack on the purpose of the
Rhodes scholarship plan shows an un-
lightened viewpoint such as the Rhodes
scholarships are aimed to correct.
Such ignorant fear of neighboring gov-
ernment has retarded the progress of
civilization since men first began tc
band themselves into tribes. Surel,
two, three, or four years in an Eng-
lish school cannot influence any man
of the Rhodes scholar type in any was
which is detrimental to his own coun-
try in which he has spent from eigh-
teen to twenty-two years. The fool-
ishness of such an attack is too ap-
parent to merit explanation.

For the second time within a
month the faculty of the literary col-
lege have initiated policies which will
have a profound and permanent ef-
feet on the scholastic standing of the
college. Such steps are significant
and mark a new era of advancement.
As a result of the faculty's recom-
mendation in November to the Board
of Regents to abolish plan B for ad-
mission the Regents in their recent
meeting took this significant step.
For the first time admission to the lit-
erary college is to placed on an equal-
ly stringenttbases forall of the
schools of the state. None of the
larger institutions are to be given
special privileges in the future which
tend to lead the high school student
to take the path of least resistance in
preparing for college.
In the December meeting of this
body Wednesday the faculty took ac-
tion which transcends the importance
even of their earlier move. Their rec-
ommendation that the first require-
ments for graduation be raised so that
a student must have maintained a C
average in all of his work during the
course of his college career to be
graduated from the literary college
opens the way for an elevation of the
position of tie Michigan graduate.'
Just somuch as the requirements for
graduation are raised, to that extent
will a diploma come to be farther
removed from the position of a "piece
of paper".
Anything which will reduce the men-
tal laziness of many of the men and
women in attendance at the Univer-
sity is commendable. The Board of
Regents will do well to give the ne-
cessary final approval to this action
and make the requirement part of the
permanent rules.

News Item
Mr. Henry Cashman, of Denmark,
Wis., said at a meeting of the Board
of Regents of the University of Wis-
consin Wednesday, that he was op-
posed to the university accepting any
more Rhode scholarships, for the fol-
lowing enlightened reason:
"The object of Rhode scholar-
ships," (said Mr. Cashman) "is to
extend British rule and ultimately
recover the United States. This
scheme makes traitors of some of
America's finest young men, and
for this reason I am opposed to
the University accepting such

tacked yesterday by a huge octopus
which did not reliquish its manifold
embrace until the diver's comrades
had cut it to pieces. The diver, Jean
Negri, fought desperately with the
monster under water and was finally
able to free one arm. Then he plung-
ed a trident into the body of the crea-
ture. The octopus held fast and the
diver gave the signal to be hauled
up. When his companions saw the
writhing monster emerge enfolding
the diver, they were panic-stricken,
but finally returned to Negri's aid and
freed him with their knives.
