V ory Ton ght Coupled With Defeat
O Northwestern Monday Will Give
1overines Big Ten Title
A tempestuous basketball, season
will reach its heights at 7:30 o'clock
tonight when the Ohio State five will
engage Coach Mather's championship
contenders at the field house in one
of the three crucial contests which
will be waged in the Big Ten race
Shunted into the lowly depths of
the Conference standings by two suc-j
cessive defeats on the western trip,j
and a 32-31,setback at the hands of
today's invaders, the Wolverines sud-
denly braced themselves and initiated
a bit of dope upsetting on their own
hook, exhibiting a spectacular defense
to crush the strong Wisconsin quintet
at the field house, then traveling to
Champaign where they created a fu-f
more by knocking a severe dent in Illi-+
nois' title aspirations, and then, asi1
not satisfied with their performances,
they journeyed to Madison and hand-

time in a overtime contest.I
EclI ilolds Six Wins
And today the Buckeye five, also
in need of a victory to remain in the"
running for first honors, challenges
Michigan's title ambitions. Each
teame roasts of a recordl of six vic-

contestants from consideration in the

Will Revise

Asserting that a practitioner of
medicine must have both a compre-
hensive knowledge of the sciences
and a wide knowledge of human
beings, because "there is no group!
that gets so close to human beings,"
Dean Hugh Cabot of the Medical
school, speaking on "Medicine, a Pro-
Ifession," outlined the requisites, re-j
sponsibilities, duties, and possibili-
ties of medicine as a profession.
Of the two types of knowledge that
a doctor must possess, the acciuaint-
anceship with man apart from the
workings of his body.-or that
branch of knowledge which is not
reducible to a science,---is the more
fundamental. "Of course it is im-
portant to know what disease the man
has, but it is more important to know
what man the disease has," Dean !
Cabot said, emphasizing the point that
'diseases react differently on individ-
In answering thec question of "what

continued, "and to most of us there!
comes a distinct feeling that we want1
something for our service, and that
generally is expressed in terms of
money. But what we really want arei
abiding satisfactions, things that
stick. One gets it out of any work
well done, but there is no field in
which this is more true than in medi-
Finally, there is the opportunity for
constructive idealism the speaker
concluded. "To me, ideals are posi-
tive, concrete things; things that are
always with you, always ahead of you.
Friends may go, success may desert,
you, your children may grow up and
leave you, but ideals are always with
you, a goal to which you can con-
stantly strive and by which you can
measure your success."

Yost, Scott, and Campbell Address
State Journalists As Annual
Conventlon Opens
Deriving his title, "The Cloak and
the Book," from a biblical text, Prof.
W. D. Henderson, director of the Uni-
versity extension service, urged the
delegates to the high school editors
convention at their banquet last night
at the Union to 'read proper books as
a source of education.
After first explaining the "Cloak"
as representing material luxury, Pro-
fessor Henderson stated, "a reader of
books and a thinker thereon is edu-
cated. Read three types of books:
books of your profession, books for
your information, and books for your
recreation." He emphasized that the
order of life is changing, and that to
live properly one must read modern
as well as older books.
Tells Requisite of Book
Professor Henderson ae dthe
three requisites for "a book that will
live" as: good style, treatment of the
constant and the vital, and trueness
to human nature.
This morning at 9 o'clock the jour-
nalists will assemble to hear two
editors talk, and then continue with
group discussions until noon. On the
afternoon program is a lecture, a tour
of the campus, and tea for the women
deleghtes at the Betsy Barbour dormi-
tory. A business meeting at 4;15
o'clock will conclude the convention.
At this time cups will be awarded to
the winning publications and the offi-
cers for the coming year will be
The luncheon yesterday noon at
which Prof. John L. Brumm was
toastmaster opened the convention.
Dean John R. Effinger, of the literary
college, gave the initial welcome to
the members of the association. In-
stead of giving the keys of the yni-
versity, Dean Effinger stated, the
doors would be left unlocked. He
stressed a good general and cultural
education as the best foundation for
any profession, especially for journal-
ism. "The technical part of journal-
ism is easily learned," he added, "and
the important thing in writing is what
message you have to convey rather
than the manner in which you con-
vey it."
Prof. F. N. Scott, head of tre
rhetoric department, gave the hist6ry
of journalism in the University, and
personal incidents of his first at-
tempts at writing. After the luncheon,
in the first assembly, Professor
Brumm talked on "Leadership." He
stated that a man is educated when
he is 'able to recognize human worth
on sight.
Mayor Welcomes Delegates
The banquet last night was opened
by a welcome from the city by Mayor
Robert A. Campbell, treasurer of the
University. The speakers were intro-
duced by Toastmaster Shirley W,
Smith, secretary of the University.
William Diener, '26, president of Sig-
ma Delta Chi further welcomed the
Director Fielding H. Yost gave a
review of Michigan's athletic per-
formances in the last few years, and
commented on the widespread Michi-
gan spirit he found while traveling.
The Michiga athletic plant is most
complete from all points of view, the
coach said.
The two journalists who willgive
the principal talks this morning, are

both former Michigan students. Lee
A. White, '10, of the Detroit News, is
speaking on "Yesterday and Today in
