service and ex-service men, and the

Speaking in defense of intercol-
legiate athletics, which have been
strenuously assailed recently for the
part they play in American university
life, Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, chairman
of the Board in Control of Athletics,
remarked that the harm done by them
is almost as nothing when compared
'to the evil caused by common loafing.
"The greatest vice in American Col-I
lege life today," he asserted, "is loaf-
ing. There is no doubt that this far
overshadows the 'harm created by in-
tercollegiate athletics.
"No one," Professor Aigler contin-
ued, "would be more pleased than I to
4 see a Phi Betta Kappa man receive as
much recognition by the public as do
our leading athletes. But such a con-
dition would be contrary to human
nature. Intellectual attainments do
not make such an appeal, and that is
why athletics are so prominent in
colleges and universities today. That

this should be the case is truly un-
fortunate, but how can it be altered?"
In commenting upon the recent an-
nual report of Dr. Henry S. Pritchett,
president ofathe Carnegie Foundation
for the Advancement of Teaching, in
which he deplored the present col-
legiate athletic situation, Professor
Aigler said, "I agree with Dr. Prit-
chett that outside activities over-
shadow and sometimes run counter to
the intellectual life of the college, but
athletics are not nearly as great an
inroad on time as are social activities,
for instance.
"It must be borne in mind that ath-
letics are simply one part of the Uni-
versity's life. The intellectual fea-
tures must always -be -considered
dominant. I strdpgly believe that
there are dangers existing in intercol-
legiate athletics. This whole matter
must be most carefully supervised and
directed, for it is not difficult to let
it slip out of hand."

Tracing the history of "American
Botany During the Colonial Period,"
Prof. Harley H. Bartlett of the botany
department delivered his presidential
address before the thirtieth annual
meeting of the Michigan Academy of
Science, Arts and Letters, which open-
ed yesterday, In Natural Science audi-
torium. With a review of early botan-
ical studies carried on in the colonies
by both foreigners and Americans,
Professor Bartlett outlined the im-
portant steps which were made in the
advancement of the science.
Following the presidential address,
members of the academy were enter-
tained at a smoker given by the Re-
search club of the University in the
University club rooms in Alumni Mem-
orial hall. More than 100 persons were
entertained. It is thought that nearly

meetings today and tomorrow,
There will be two addresses deliv-
ered before general meetings of the
academy tomorrow. Dr. Edward Fran-
cis of the United States public health
service will talk upon "Tularaemia,"

Prof. L. A. Kenoyer of the Western
State Normal school in Kalamazoo
gave an illustrated lecture yesterday
afternoon on "Botanizing in the Himi-
layas." He showed pictures of native
villages and cities, of the country and
channels of the upper Ganges river,
of native farmer women, and of the
forests In peninsular India. Methods
of farming and threshing grain were
also described.
Professor Kenoyer gave a vivid des-
cription of botanical trips which he
took during his six years of residence
in India. He showed pictures of the
gorgeous colored foliage which is pre-
valent in the winter, and told of the
leafless condition of the trees during
the summer. Due to the extreme heat,
which averages about 115 degrees in
the summer, Professor Kenoyer was
forced to spend this season of th'e year
in the foothills.
"The Tanager Expedition of 1923 to
Johnston and Wake Islands in the
North Tropical Pacific and its Botani-
cal Results" was the subject of an
illustrated lecture by Prof. James B.
Pollock of the botany departmenft.
Pictures were shown of the island
vegetation and wild life, wh'ich Pro-
fessor Pollock described.
A paper was presented by Prof.
W. J. Hussey for the astronomy depart-
ment upon "American Astronomical
Expeditions to the Southern Hemi-
sphere." In this he described the
difficulties which have been encount-
ered in studies of the southern hea-
vens, and told of the establishment of
many observatories in this region.
Prof. Ernest A. Bessy of the botany
department at Michigan Agriculture
college read a paper on "William
James Beal,. 1833-1924," who was the
first president of the society.
