THE FAVORABLE EPITAPH
The action of Sigma Delta Chi in
awarding its annual favorable epitaph
to Dean Joseph A. Bursley at the
Gridiron Knights' banquet is of pe-
culiarnsignificance. In addition to ex-
pressing the feeling of that particular
organization it is a mark of the grow-_
ing esteem of Michigan men for an
advisor and a friend.
The comparatively new office of
Dean of Men is without doubt the
most difficult position on the campus.
It requires a strong personality, capa-
ble of exerting his 'influence on the
men with whom he comes in contact,
and of winning their confidence..There
is need for endless patience and tact-
qualities combined in few persons.
Faced with a complicated situation,
Dean Bursley has done his work ex-
ceptionally well. In the execution of
his duties he -has made many enemies,
the majority of whom have never
come in intimate contact with him.
But he has made more friends. The
only difference is that those who have
been antagonized have done more
The University is too large for
every individual to know the Dean
personally, but it is possible for every-
one to meet him in one way or an-
other. The increasing number of
those students who take the trouble
to do this will find him, as the epitaph
said, "a real man."
THE SOLDIER POLITICIAN
Despite reports to the contrary,
Field Marshal Von Hindenburg is go-
ing to fling his hat into the political
arena. Not satisfied to rest his claim
to fame on a long period of service
as a proponent of militarism, he has,
accepted the nomination of the Na-I
tional-Conservative bourgeois bloc and
will prosecute an active campaign forI
the presidency until election day,
The spectacle of this dodering old'
man of eighty years carrying on a
campaign will be a pitiful one It is1
very apparent that he has yielded toI
the flattery of those who'see in his.
popularity as a war hero the last hope
of a maonarchistic victory. They havel
played on his vanity by recalling the<
cases of Clemenceau, Balfour, and .
Bismark, all of whom were active in!
politics after they had passed his age.
Deluded by this persuasion, the Fieldt
Marshal has evidently forgotten thatc
