From information which could be
gathered concerning the publication,
it was of the truculent, chip-on-my-
shoulder type, the kind which first in-
sults everything and everybody, and
then dares the wide world to criticize.
Contained in it were attacks against
President Seaton, of the little Metho-
dist college, the faculty, the Christian
religion, fraternities of the college,
college spirit, and the usually accept-
ed conventions of our civilization. In
it there was a call broadcast to all
"disciples of free love, Bohemians,
budding anarchists, communists, nihil-
ists, atheists, agnostics and pacifists"
to rally to the Maelstrom's flag.
President Seaton will, of course,
come in for a lot of criticism for
firing the editor. He will be assailed
as having stifled free speech. Upton
Sinclair will, perhaps, incorporate the
incident into some future book as
4 proof of the manner in which the
trusts are placing their heavy and
gold-shodden foot on anything which
savors of originality. But President

prompted by nothing more than anger

there arise these liberated spirits in
our various colleges and universities;
they arise, publish their little maga-
zines, sometimes offensive, sometimes
merely amusing, and then pass into
oblivion. If the editors of these little
nmagazines are left alone they do one
of two things: they allow their off-
spring to die a natural death; or
they graduate and leave them without
In many cases, too, these magazines
are a good influence. Not many years
ago there was one here at Michigan.
It caused a great hubbub; its editors
made many enemies. Yet it was prob-
ably the greatest intellectual stimulus
which this university has had in years.
People read it first to find out what
next the editors had attacked; and irt
searching through the editorial con-
tents they couldn't help but stumble
on ideas here and there which set
In the case of the "Maelstrom" per-
haps the officials were justified in
firing its editor. Certainly anyone who
calls nihilists and pacifists to the
same banner does not belong in an
institution of higher learning. Per-
haps his place is in Pontiac.
The Griffs, led into the fray by the
redoubtable Walter Johnson, lost to

smacks by the New York stickmen.

BURTON FIRES A GUN
For many years the University of'
Michigan has been known throughout
the nation as the training school for
professors. Men of distinction have
taught here for a period of years, ob-
tained that early experience which
was so essential to their success, and
when they reached that stage of their
development at which they were a
credit to the institution an offer of
more money from some eastern or far,
western university has tempted them
Such has been the condition. It rc-
flects no discredit on the institution
for in this time we have attracted
many scholars of prominence from
other universities and colleges. The
fact remains, however, that in this
time many men who in all probability
would have remained in Ann Arbor;
had there been sufficient financial
remuneration have gone elsewhere.
Only last year one of the outstanding
figures in the field of English history
was called to Yale. His acceptance
may or may not have been a matter
of a financial offer-nevertheless,
Michigan lost a man who added to her'
reputation as a center of learning.
In view of this state of affairs, the;
remarks of President Burton before
the state convention of Kiwanians as
he "fired the first gun in a cam-
paign for the highest type of educa-
tors that money can procure" are of
deep import. If he is as successful
as he has been in obtaining money
for buildings the University of the
future can have no rival as a center
of culture and intelaectual refine-
A NEIGHBORLY ACT
The indorsement by President Coo-
lidge of the plan to create Oct. 12 in-
to a holiday to be observed in mem-
ory of Columbus throughout North,
South, and Central America was a
step of diplomacy. The whole cam-
paign and movement for Columbus
Day is prompted by a more far-reach-
ing purpose than the mere creation of
another holiday or even the honoring
of America's discoverer.
The creation of such a day, to be
celebrated alike throughout the Amer-
icas, would institute the first special
holiday which the United States has in
common with her southern neighbors,I
and with them alone. It would esta-
blish one more bond of relationship
between the nations concerned and
would be a step in the direction of

WHAT A DISTINGUISHED CRITIC
Pv far the brightest book of rhymes
I've ever recommended;
A cocktail for these arid times,
Of wit and wisdom blended.
T've learned the volume through and
And very often quote it,
Which is the obvious thing to do,
Considering I wrote it.
GEORGE S. CHAPPELL.
Another jolly rhyme in it is this:
Two minds with but a single
How oft we meet that kind!
Not traveling doubly down life's
But staggering singly 'neath the
Of half a thought per mind.
The book is beautifully illustrat-
ed by Hogarth Jr.
