that it should stand out prominently
in their memory. Michigan is honored
by its distinguished visitors and will
look forwad to future relations with
its ancient predecessor in the field of
learning. May tonight's debate be rep-
resentative of all the best tendencies
in American and British university
life and promote that feeling of mut-
ual accord which is so essential to
the future well-being of English-
speaking peoples.

Tradition Day is, in a way, becoming
a tradition in, itself a time set aside
zt which the newcomer to the Uni-
versity may get it from authority just
what are the customs on the Univer- I
sity campus, land when he may learn
What is to be expected of a true Michi-
gan student.
In former times the yearlings were
left to seek these things out for them-,
selves as best they could and the
traditionary spirit was slow in making
it impression on the consciousness
of many. In this day and age not only
does the freshman bible set forth the
campus customs and give the fresh-
men a tip as to what should be their
purpose here in college, but Tradition
Day has been created that, as a class,
the freshmen may receive suggestion
concerning the time-honored observ-
ances of Michigan.
The finest type of University can
best be maintained only by a unani-
mous and voluntary acceptance of the
best customs. After today's ceremonies
there will be little reason why every
freshman should not be endowed with
University spirit ;he will have re-
ceived his- elementary lessons in the
lore of campus traditions and, as a
student of Michigan, will be expected
to comply with them.
Those who have charge of a meet-
ing of such importance in the mould-~
ing of Michigan men and women
should assume it as a duty to see that
they are instructed only in worthy
,traditions. Through the years there
has been a continual accumulation of
customs and observances, all of which
cannot be enduring. Only the finest of
them ,those which add to University
prestige, should be graced with the
name of traditions. Not the least im-
portant of these, and one whose ob-
servance means more than any other,
is a high type of conduct on the part
of all students. A greater interest in
study and intellectual activity also
has its place. The importance of these
Michigan Traditions should be made
clear at the ceremonies today.
Anonymous ctmmun eations will be
disregarded. The names of communi-
cants will, however, be regarded as
confidential upon request.
To the Editor:-
There is a general movement
throughout the country to get out
the largest possible vote at the coin-
ing election. The University of Michi-
gan Republican club is making a
special effort to arouse Michigan stu-
dent voters to do their duty by vot-
ing. One of the chief problems of stu-
dent voting is that it is in ,arge meas-
ure absent-voting. Because of the com-
plications attendant upon absent-vot-
ing many students fail to cast their

It is said that one of the ambitions
of the Prince of Wales is the promo-
tion of closer understanding between
the people of the United States and
Great Britian by means of a more
comprehensive interchange of stu-
dents and faculty from the universi-,
ties and colleges of the two countries.
This has been carried out in spiritj
by the bequest of Cecil Rhodes provid-
ing for American students at Oxford
and by such institutions as the Michi-
gan Riggs fellowship for an English
Another step toward the realization
of this aim is found in the visit of
the Oxford debaters to Ann Arbor and
other American university centers for
the purpose of discussion with our
representatives of one of the im-
minent questions of the day. Today

"The New Architecture"
DISTINCTLY new tendency is apparent in architectural
A thought and design today. Architects are designing in
masses -the great silhouette, the profile of the building has
become of far greater importance than its detail.
There is a new vigor and ruggedness even in"buildings which are conven-
tionally classic in their detail. Masses mount upward, supporting the tower,
accentuating its height. The new architecture is tending toward great struc-
tures rather then multiplicity of detail.
Certainly modern invention-modern engineering skill and organization,
will prove more thin equal to the demands of the architecture of the future.
