cause some other department of the
university needs increased funds.
Yale, it is true, will soon assume the
position vacated by Harvard, but the
nation will at the same time miss the
activity of an institution which had
come to be the standard by which all
other university dramatic endeavor
was judged. The corporation of Har-
vard College will do well to consider
carefully before it permits the 47
Workshop, the backbone of instruc-
tion in an important art, to lie dor-
mant. Even though Professor Baker
has been lost, his work can be de-
veloped to great advantage.
The final round of the interstate
fight to put an end to the illegal di-
version of 10,000 cubic feet of water
per second by the Chicago sanitary
district has begun, with half a dozen
representatives of Great Lakes states
and cities arguing the case against
Chicago before Secretary , of War
Weeks. Navigation on the Great
Lakes has been seriously injured by
the continuous theft of water by Chi-
cago for over thirty years. Army
engineers have been stating and re-
stating this fact ever since 1895 when
the sanitary district was first ordered
to take no more than 4,167 cubic feet
per second. This is the situation
which all but a few partial Chicago
engineersadmit and which Secretary
Weeks recognizes.
With all contention narrowed down
to a question of the minimum time
which will be required by the sanitary
district to provide new mneans of
sewage disposal, matters should soon
come to a climax. The most critical
of the opponents, including Attorney
General Daugherty of Michigan; are
insisting that Chicago could safely re-
duce the diversion to the minimum
"within two or three years." While
it must be admitted that the Chicago
officials themselves are to blame, the
greatmasses of the people of the city
would be those to suffer if an increase
in disease should be caused by the in-
ability to provide proper sewage dis-
posal within the years allotted. In
the interests of the people a period of
five years, as has been suggested by
many of those involved in the case,
would be the safest and thus the most
"D. S. ."
Ten deserving scholars are about to
be honored ,with a new and unique
degree, the string of initials trailing
their names to be augmented by ad-
ding "D. S. P.," providing officials of
the University of Chicago succeed in
carrying out a plan for giving recog-
nition to outstanding service of an in-
tellectual character. This is to be ac-
complished by the creation of "Dis-
tinguished Service Professorships,"
the awarding of the honor carrying
with it a salary of $10,000 a year-the
provision which probably will be most
pleasing to the recipients.
Among American institutions of
higher learning, Chicago is noted for
I her innovations in methods of educa-
tion. Many of the predominant ten-
dencies in our universities and high
schools have found their origin in the
research and practice of this institu-
tion. It is even more encouraging,
then, to find Chicago again leading
the way in a project which transcends
in importance any movement in edu-
cational circles today. Universities
and colleges must begin to prosecute
some sort of a campaign which will
result in adequate compensation for
those who give their life to further-
the best interests of our civilization.
Material appreciation must be accord-

ed those who are eminently successful
in their particular pursuit in order
that younger scholars may be spurred
on to greater effort. It is this that
Chicago proposes to do.
There is, however, one thing which
must not be overlooked. If there are
to be great scholars in the future de-
serving of such recognition, salaries.
adequate to modern needs must be
provided for those just starting out asj
instructors. Many, it is true, are will-
ing to sacrifice the luxuries of life for
their chosen vocation, but in so doing
they are also limiting their own ca-
pacity for future endeavor.
Those who provide the revenue for
our universities should realize that
educators must be given something
toward which to work and something
to work with while they are getting
there. The University of Chicago is
deserving of praise for her part in
initiating the former part of such a








Yesterday afternoon the remains of
President Burton, who had served
Michigan faithfully and well, were
lowered into their final resting place.
With his death came the end of a
great force, a powerful and gentle
spirit, one which had guided Michigan
well through its most eventful period
of transition and expansion. His loss
is felt-how deeply it is impossible
to record.
The task which he had set for him-
self--the building of Michigan into a
truly cosmopolitan seat of culture-
is still far from complete. He did
much; but his death prevented him
from seeing his task through to com-
There could be no better tribute
given him than to carry on from the
place where he stopped. Let those
who are in a position to do so, strive'
to attain the goal which he had set
up before us; let them continue along
the road which he had pointed. It
would have been his wish; let us car-
ry it out.
Ever since the resignation of Prof.
George P. Baker from the Harvard
faculty those interested in the drama
have been conjecturing concerning
his reasons. It was perfectly clear
that Yale had offered him a better
financial backing than had been the
lot of his famous 47 Workshop, but
the failure of Harvard to compete for
his services was never made com-
pletely clear. Even the students of
the College appeared to be in the
President Lowell's discreet silence
on the subject was maintained until
in a speech before the Harvard club
of Washington, D. C., early last week
he explained that the corporation of
the College felt that the 47 Workshop,
although performing a valuable serv-
ice, did not warrant further expan-1
sion and must yield to more import-
ant departments of the university, in
particular to the College where the
further development of the tutoriall
system is a vital matter.
It is difficult for those who are ac-
customed to think of the old eastern
colieges as institutions of almost un-
limited endowment to conceive of#
Harvard college being so poverty-
stricken that the activity of one de-
partnent must be curtailed in orderl
that another may be developed. It
has seemed in the past that only an
appeal to alumni was necessary to
assure a million or so for some pro-1

TEXT.BOOKS For All Colleges

Find a lesson in the plight of most old men you meet. Perhaps,
dressed in worn and tattered clothing, they are selling small articles in the
streets; perhaps trudging wearily to work at some bare livelihood in garments
of shabby respectability, remnants of better days; perhaps staying with their
children, absolutely dependent upon them for sustenance. How very few
you find who are independent!
What a sad commentary upon human existence that for their years of
toil they have so little left to care for them and comfort them during their
declining years! Strange, isn't it, that for half a century of labor they have
nothing left upon which to spend their old age?
Many of them are, of course, the victims of circumstances without their
control. Burdens have been more than they could bear, or their scanty
savings have been wiped out in a single calamity. But for such circum-
stances, a few cents saved from their earnings during their younger days
would have amply provided for these lean ones. Why didn't they do it?
Why could they not foresee their circumstances?
The answer is that youth is generally blind. It lives for today- alone
with no thought of the morrow. In the full vigor of youth, old age,
sickness and death seeni far, far away. If it is thought of at all it is but
to resolve that, "next week I'll change. Next week I'll begin to save."
And next week remains always in the future until at last it is too late.
Youth must learn. Youth must save, if old age is to be provided for.
You think, "but this will not happen to me. Some way I will escape." But
there is no escape from cold facts and figures. Either you must start making
provision NOW for the years when your services are no longer productive
or you are reading your own fate in the lives of these old men you meet
today. Think it over.
