The "college of the air" sponsore i
by the University of Iowa has been
so successful that it has been made
a permanent institution, broadcasting
twice weekly from Iowa's own sta-
tion, WSUI. The first program went
on the air recently.
The radio university has ceased to
be an experiment. At Iowa and sev-
eral other institutions it is an estah-
lished fact. Regular courses are of-
fered and are taught by means of lec-
tures given by professors, who con-
duct' regular radio classes. Entrance)
requirements are definitely settled
and announced and, at the end of the
semester, examinations are given I
all those regularly enrolled. If the
examinations are passed, two semes-
ter hours of credit are given in each:
A little more than a year ago,
Michigan had a radio broadcasting
station, which successfully presented
band concerts, basketball games, and
occasional lectures by members of
the faculty. It was not fully devel-
oped, but it was a start in the right
direction. Due to lack of funds and
other obstacles, the station was dis--
mantled and Michigan ceased to keep
pace with her sister schools of the
mid-West in the ever-enlarging field
of radio instruction.
Illinois and Notre Dame recently
received donations from a wealthy
Chicagoan to be used for the erection
of radio broadcasting stations at
these schools-and when the prepara-
tions are completed, they, too, will be
ready to take their place in this new
method of giving a college education
to the people of their state.
The extension division of this Uni-
versity is an effikcient and well-organ-
ized unit. Given the necessary equip-
ment, it would be able to establish
Michigan among the leaders of the
radio colleges. Thefnecessary funds
should be available from some source
-the state legislature, private don-
ors, or popular subscription. Michi-
gan should not be allowed to fall be-
hind in this field.
It was a somewhat picturesque
phrase which Dr. Clarence C. Little,
who is to be installed as president of
the University of Michigan in Novem-
ber, coined to designate one of his
ideals, when he declared that e must
"plead guilty to being an educational
e'vangelist." He explained that he
would rather give a man some degree
that doesn't set him up to rule, but
sets him up to serve, and added that
"the part of higher education that we
want to cherish and develop is that
part which consists of adding to the
intellectual the intangible qualities
that lie within the human heart."
George Herbert wrote:
A servant with this clause
Makes drudgery divine;
Who sweeps a room las for Thy laws
Makes that and th' action fine.
And if Dr. Little can inspire his stu-
dents with that spirit he will truly
be accomplishing a worth-while
achievement.--The Christian Science



T-11S AFT E RNOON : 'The Orga
Recilal in 1II a.uditorium a 4



The war department is about to in
troduce a selective service bill ante
congress which will prevent the pos
sibility of a delay should the United
States again become involved inr
major war. Instead of being con-
fronted with the necessity and delay
of framing a "draft" law when it IQ
imperative that the country haveu
large armed force immediately, the
sponsors of this bill propose to hav
the ponderous machinery all ready.
When the time comes, all that con-
gress would have to do is to declare
that a national emergency exists.
Thereupon the President could im-
mediately put selective conscription
into operation.
The measure is much the same as
that which was passed when we en
tered the World war. It provide
that all male persons between th
ages of 18 and 30, or whatever age
limits the President may wish to set
are to be subject to draft bout de
ferment on account of "upation.
Furthermore, all male pei d are to
be subject to registration according
to regulations laid down by the Presi
dent. All persons registered shall be
subject to draft until the emergency
is over. Of 'course, certain persons
are exempt according to occupation
but not as many as under the last se
lective service act.
The immediate workings of th
draft when in operation shall b
under the supervision of the gover-
'nors of the various states, and will
conducted by civilians. The sponsor:
do not wish to see a great central
agency set up in Washington, be-
lieving that the best way to operate
is through the states, the federal gov-
ernment merely providing the frame
It is not a compulsory military
training act; it simply means that
Uncle Sam is ready. It is not going
to affect peace-time America in the
least. -One state has previously re-
quested that such a bill be intro-
duced and nine others have signified
their approval of it. The American
Legion wanted just such a bill lasi.
year, and it is expected that its con-
vention in Omaha will again approve
of the proposal.
The promoters of this bill are now
preparing for a spirited fight when it
reaches congress, remembering what
a hard time the draft law in 1916 had
in getting legislative approval. They
expect that the same people that
fought it then will fight it even hard-
er now, since it will go on the statute
books permanently.
What does the law mean? If it
passes it means that the United
States can prepare within a year for

It is only because we have an un-
usual amount of grit and determina-
tion and a large sense of duty, that
there is a column this morning.
Yesterday we visit the barber at the
Union and, in our innocence asked I
for an oil shampoo. We may hav2
needed it but that wasn't why we ask-
ed for it, which only makes it worse.
We really wanted a hair cut and we
had about fifteen minutes to spare,
so we thought that that would be a
good way to spend it. Also half a dol-
lar. Well, the hair cut was all right,
but entirely unnecessary, as it turned
out later. But let us tell you about
the oil business.
First he put a hot towel around our
head, that is not only an expreshion
but a fact. After that he poured
something from a tube on our hair
that, wasn't so bad, either until he
took out an electric riveter, or sonm
machine that has about the same ef-
fect, and applied that to our tender
After this we were revived by an-
other round of hot towels. Then
came a shampoo, in the true sense of
the word. The barber had our hair
in every style from Valentino to D)u
Barry. Oh, we almost forgot the
worst, just before this he took a fine
steel brush (that "fine" doesn't mean
"nice" or "good" or anything like
that, it merely refers to quality of the
steel) and proceeded to rake our-
scalp for at least an hour, until most
of the hair had disappeared entirely.
Come to think of it, we don't see how
he did all the shampoo stuff, but then
we were pretty groggy by that time,
and there might have been some hair
left. There certainly wasn't when we
got through though. '
Well, to make a long story short,
the next act was red hot and ice cold
water thrown with tremendous force
against the scalp But by that time
we didn't really care what happened
to us. Our entire life was passing
before our eyes and we were having
a great laugh at ourselves and being
sorry that it all had to end so quickly.
That wasn't all either. We dimiy
remembered that he poured some
Carbolic or an equally powerful sub-
stitute on our bald pate. Then we
were released.
It seems the idea of the so called
oil shampoo is that it stops falling
hair. Ours never falls, on the con-
trary, it always stands up straight
in the air, but the idea is, we guess
that after one of those shampoos
what ever hair you have left will
never come out. We will guarantee
that! But the sad part of our case
was that there were only about eight
hairs that remained.

We feel it part of the duty of this
department to keep its readers in-
formed concerning events which come
in its particular sphere. Therefore
we believe that it is not only our
duty but our pleasure (isn't that what
they always say) to advise you to he
sure and see Raymond Griffith this
week. If there is anyone around these
days who is any funnier, we havn':
seen him.
* * *
This column is dedicated to-
day to the boys downstairs who
have read this stuff whether they
want to oi' not. We sympathize
with them not only because it is
a dreary, dirty and Fingy job, but
because they also have to read
the Music and Drama column and 1
the Women's page.
And because hien they run 1
across a word like fltzxcwirtzprtl
they have to try and figure out
what it means, or what it was

supposed to mean before the
linotypers got a hold of it. And
because they have to take out all
slugs like this: ETAOINSHRDLUT
An equal amouint of sympathy
goes to the linotypists who have
to set this stuff up every night.
They should get almost as much
as the persons who have to write
* * *
Most people, from what we can
gather, read this department a'
breakfast. That is, of course., provid-
ing that they do read it. But you are
anyway, so we can assume that you
are reading it at that time.'
This puts an entirely different light
on the situation. We had always f
hoped that you read it during your
first lecture in the morning. At th:3
time it would probably shine by com-
parison. We have noticed a large1
number of students reading Ann Ar-
bor's Greatest Morning College Dailyl

Y upon his mind as the amazing infia-
s tion of prices here. I know of no
, other college town wherein the poor
- "studes" get "stuck" more consistent-
ly and assiduously by the town mer-
e chants and landlords.
0 We pay dizzy prices, for every com-
- modity from root-beer to straw hats.
I Rooms here are half again as high as
s like accommodations in Columbus,
I Ohio (0 .S. U.). To eat quite regular-
- ly, which, alas, is one of the human
necessities, and to eat only moderate-
ly, costs a small fortune. But why
enumerate the almost limitless oc-
casions of our being sand-bagged?
The presence of a great number of
t wealthy students here, and their na-
turally - complementary spendthrift
habits, probably contribute to the
evil. Again, the proper amount of
competition (between like units) i.,
quite apparently lacking. Why this
- condition exists is not in my ken.
Lastly, Ann Arbor can in no way be
considered -as isolated geographically,
and consequently the profiteers must
shift the burden to broader shoulders
than "high freight-rates."
To relieve the situation quickly and
effectively, my humble suggestion
would be decisive action on the part
of the University authorities towards
the regulation of city prices through
the action of the state legislature or
through some other channel. Beyond
a shadow.of a doubt, a great mapority
of the students feel acutely the pro-
hibitive price level. Why can't some.-
thing, and why shouldn't something,
