Campus Leaders Advise First Year
Men To Become Familiar With
Campus Activities
Rousing cheers, an address of wel-
come and advice by Prof. William D.
Henderson of the University Exten-
sion department and talks by several
leaders in campus activities composed
the main part of the program at the
freshman smoler given last night at
the Union when; another freshman
class-the class of '27-learned more
about Michigan and of the ideals for
which it stands.
In speaking before the large group
of first year men who almost filled the
large assembly hall, Professor Hend-
erson emphasized the point that no
group of people stand on the thresh-
old of opportunities that "you do to-
day." He said, "There are neverthe-
less many problems of tremendous'
import for you to solve in the next
25 years, including that of democra-
cy itself, and the thing to be remem-
bered'is to play this game according
to the rules. It's a great game to
play and a wonderful day to play it
and it should be started right now."
Proceeding, the speaker gave his
subject as "How to be happy though a
Freshman" and then enumerated cer-
tain ideas which should be kept in
mind by new students. "In the first
place," he pointed out, "be true to
yourself, appreciate yourself-have
personality. We all have weaknesses
and also extraordinary powers and an
effort should be made to correct
those weaknesses and develop those
The second point stressed by Pro-
fessor Henderson was "to play the
game straight with your mind". Under
this head, he advised his hearers to
plan to do a certain amount of reading
every day, delving in many different
subjects. "Do not try to just 'get by'
but really thoughtfully meditate over
the things that you read".
The closing words of admonition
sounded by the speaker were "be re-
liable". In dealing with this idea,
Professor Henderson said "The foun-
dation of loyalty is reliability. To gain
friends one must possess characteris-
tics of loyalty and reliability. Be
loyal to Michigan, the nation and the
world, and above all, be loyal'to the
ideals learned In the home, those of
truth, justice and fairness. Be true
to home".
Previous to Professor Henderson's
talk, Harry Kipke, '24, captain of this
year's football team, spoke to the as-
sembled freshmen. He advised them
to start In working now and to get
Into those lines of endeavor for which
they are fitted. "Through campus
activities", he said, "you men may
learn of the real Michigan spirit".
Explains Union
The next speaker introduced by
Charles Merriam, '25E, chairman of
the Uppercass Advisory committee,
was Thomas J. Lynch, '25L, president
of the Union. He explained that the
Union, which, he emphasized, is your
building, is an organization which (1)
democratized men on the campus,
(2) leads in student activities and (3)
seeks to aid the student body in any
