and Problems in Lecture
at S Tonight
Difficulties confronted today b
European students, with a general out
line of conditions in Russia, will b
discussed by Sherwood Eddy, inter
nationally known traveler, speaker an
writer, at 8 o'clock tonight in Natura
Science auditorium. Mr. Eddy, by
years of travel and mingling with stu-
dents of other countries, is regarded
as an authority upon foreign studen
life, and tours, at his own expense
many of the principal universities o
the country, lecturing upon social and
economic situations in the lands h'e
has visited.
Last year Mr. Eddy conducted a
summer tour with university presi-
dents, economists, and labor leaders
throughout Europe, with the intention
of investigating the actual social prob-
lems facing continental peoples. His
intimate knowledge of European stu-
dent conditions is attested by the
study he has made of the subject, a
study which includes recent personal
conferences in outstanding men in
Germany, France, England, Czecho-
Slovakia, and Russia.
The speaker was requested to deal
particularly in his address here with
the state of educational facilities and
problems in Europe and Russia. In
addition o his lectures upon this
subject, he is also the author of "Rus-
sia, aWarning and a Challenge." His
other books include "The New Era in
Asia," "Suffering and the War," "With
Our Soldiers in France," and "Every-
body's World."
This will not mark Mr. Eddy's first
visit to Ann Arbor.-Last year he ap-
peared before the state older boys'
conference,fandtalso spoke upon the
University Service program.
Service among foreign students
marks Mr. Eddy's career since his
graduation from Yale university in
1891. After 1896, he spent 15 years
among the students of India, at the
same time visiting universities and
colleges of the Far East without sal-
ary. By request, he at one time ad-
dressed Chinese provincial parlia-
ments, and other foreign institutions.
in recent years, his work has largely
been confined to Europe.

business administration students as
well. Mr. Gladden will also tell of re-

Regents of the University of Michi-
gan, and in fact governing bodies of
all state universities, should consider
the problem of changing the entire
system of university management, ac-
cording to ideas expressed by former
Governor Chase S. Osborn, who was
also a member of the Board of Re-
gents of the University several years
ago, in a recent interview.
"This is emphasized," Mr. Osborn
said, "by the death of the magnificent
Burton of Michigan, ;following the
passing of the great Van Hise of Wis-
consin several years ago. Both men
destinctly and unmistakably worked
themselves to death."
Mr. Qsbrn, 4fdrther explains his
suggestion by saying that "no one
man is equipped to do the work of
conducting a university" at the pre-
sent time. "If a man is a scholar, he
is not likely to be an executive in
economic matters; if he is a business
man, he is not apt to be a scholar.,
Consequently, one department or the
other will suffer.
"Then, there is the ever present
necessity of lobbying for funds. The
scholarly president who has to get
down to the ordinary details of busi-
ness and politics is dulled in his fin-
er intellectualism as well as a suffer-
er in pride and dignity. It appears
clearly that there should be a clear
separation of the affairs of the univer-
sity so that the scholar can do his
best work and also that the vast
business of the institution be taken
care of as it should.
"There is only one way to accomp-
lish this, and that is to substitute a
diarchy for the present system wherej
responsibilities are divided between
a president and a chairman of the
