ed black spaniel and brand gray new
sport roadster were left behind
today as Queen Marie of Roumania and
her son and daughter left New York
for a visit to Philadelphia's Sesqui-
The spaniel, which
answers to the
name of Crag,
± when that word is
pronounced .,with
an accent few
Americans c a n
manage, is the
Queen's favorite
dog. He was left
w: to waddle mourn-

with an "H") by an automobile com-
pany, awaits the return of its new'

Before her departure for Philadel-

phia in the afternoon, the queen vis-

"America Is Not Materialistic" Says
S. N. Dasgupta of Presidency
College, India
"America is not materialistic. As
I look around me and see these en-
dowed institutions of learning, as I
walk through the streets of large !
cities and see museumsand libraries
and schools on my right and on my
left, I can never be led to believe
that America is a materialistic coun-
try. America has in itself a certain
spirituality that keeps it going. Other-
wise it could not be the great country
that it is." Such were the statements
of Prof. S. N. Dasgupta, professor of
philosophy at Presidency college,
Calcutta in his lecture on "Education
and International Relations" in Nat-
ural Science auditorium yesterday
"There are," he said, "many differ-
ent definitions that may be placed on
the word education. One may say
that it is an increase of efficiency or
earning power. One may say that it
1is for the good of society that men be
educated to produce more and! better
things. But all of these things are
included in a merely mechanistic con-
ception of the world. It does not take3
into consideration the fact that thereI
must be behind all of the activities of
the world a certaig. spirit, a certain
conception of the ideal. Therefore my,
definition of education is that it is a
systematic scheme of relations in

Contributions Will Cover Expenses
of Various Divisions
In Organization
Nov. 2-5 are the dates which have
been set for the annual drive of the
Student Christian association, when
the campus will-be canvassed for $G,-
000, the year's budget for the S. C. A.
activities, it was announced yester-
day. The drive this year is under the'
direction of Mathew Hudson, '28, who
worked on the campaign last year.
The money gathered in the drive
will be devoted to the support of all
the manifold departments of the S. C.I
A. which have a direct relation to the R
campus. The budget includes items
to provide vocational counsel for
students in an effort to guide those
who are undecided in the choice of
their life work. Prominent men
throughout the country will be
brought to Ann Arbor by the S. C. A.
to meet with discussion groups "and
fraternities. Groups of freshmen are
organized each fall by the association,
which meet once a week to talk over
the difficulties they encounter in their
new life on the campus. In addition
to these local activities, the S. C. A.
supports a Fresh Air camp in the
summer for the under-privileged chil-
dren in the neighboring cities, gives a
Christmas party for the poor chil-
dren of Ann Arbor, and shares in the
expenses of the Lake Geneva confer-
. The drive, as it is planned, will be
broader in scope than any drive
hitherto attempted by the Student.
Christian association. It is plannedj
to reach all students and all groups
on the campus, and a generous sup-1
port is expected..I
A more extensive advertising cam-
paign is planned this year in which
every student will be reached. Speak-
ers of local and statewide interest
will address the workers at dinners
and luncheons given during the drive.
It is estimated that close to 500 will
take an active part in the campaign-
ing in an effort to reach every one onf
the campus.I

More than 40 requests were received
for copies of the booklet containing

these Michigan Night radio programs
the first day following last week's
broadcasting, according to Waldo M.
Abbot of the rhetoric department, pro-
gram director. The pamphlet, which
will be compiled at the end of the
season, will resemble that of last year,

send in requests.
"Front Page Stuff'
Scheduled To Play
In Thirteen Cities
"Front Page Stuff," the 1927 Union
Opera, will take the road on Friday,
Dec. 17, beginning a two-week itiner-
ary of the largest eastern and middle
western cities that is to be fully as
extensive as the tour of last year.
In all, the Opera production will
play to alumni audiences in 13 cities,
giving 15 performances during the
Christmas vacation. After playing for
a week at the Whitney theater, the
Opera will open in Chicago for the
first presentation of the trip, playing
at the Auditorium, the largest theater
in that city. From Chicago, the tour
will include Indianapolis, Cincinnati,

Cleveland, Toledo, Saginaw, Lansing,
Grand Rapids, Washington, New York
City, Philadelphia, Buffalo, and De-
In New York City, the Opera will
play at the Metropolitan Opera house.
Other large theaters on the itinerary
are the Consistory in Buffalo, the New
Washington Auditorium in Washing-
ton, and the Academy of Music in
Philadelphia. Three preformances
IIwill be given at the Orchestra Hall in
With the exception of therIndian-
apolis appearance, the itinerary this
year is the same as that of "Tam-
bourine," , last year's outstanding
Opera success. The Hoosier city was
substituted for Flint.
Due to the increasing popularity of
the Opera in the East and elsewhereR
and to a demand for continued pres-
entation in the cities in which past
Operas have appeared, the Opera
itinerary is almost certain to include
a large group of Eastern cities every
year in the future.

Henderson Speaks On Modern Condi-
tions; Editorial Practice Discussed
At Afternoon Session
Emphasizing the retention of the
freedom which we now have and the
need for an increase in discipline as
the solution of our educational and
political problems, Prof. William A.
Frayer of the political science depart-
ment addressed the members of the
University Press Club of Michigan last
night on "Humanizing Education."
The instrument by which this dis-
cipline must be inculcated into the
nation's life was set forth by Profes-
sor Frayer as the entire educational
system, starting with the gradei
schools and continuing through theJ
colleges and universities. "Leaddr-
ship which is so necessary to democ-1
racy must be matured and strength-
ened in the family and in educationalf
institutions," he continued.
Represents President
Likewise, Professor rayer, who
represented President Clarence Gook
Little at the gathering, characterized
"loyalty to an institution" and the
"sense of obligations" as qualities
which must be inculcated into the
people of this nation by slow and
gradual processes. Appreciation of
these characteristics constitute an in-
telligence test in itself, he added.
Regarding the Introduction of theF
personal element into higher educa-
tion, the speaker treated the subject
on the basis of the difficult transition
from the preparatory schools into the
I universities, adjustment to the new
{ environment of the new institution,
and the transition from the students'
Alma Mater to the life of the outside
In speaking of the moral conditions
of present day institutions of higher1
learning and the publicity which is'
given reports on such conditions,t
Professor Frayer declared that there
is "no need for fear about the morals
or the morale of the great mass of
college students. It is only the friv-
ilous fringe," he continued, "which is
dangerous and that minority is so
small that it can not cause trouble."
"We are at a point of discontinuity,
economically and industrially, as well
as in the other phases of our life,"
declared Prof. William D. Henderson,
director of the extension department,
in an address on "Keeping up with the'
Times." Linking the the newspaper
with the difficulties brought to mod-
ern civilization by the present indus-
trial era, he added to the recent dec-
laration of President James Rowland
Angell of Yale university that the
success of the experiment with democ-
racy depends upon the leaders of the
country, the statement that such suc-
cess also depends upon the atmo-
sphere in which the leaders live and
in which the newspapers wield influ-
-ne Smith Presides
Regent Junius E. Beal who appear-
ed upon the program in the absecce
of Regent James O. Murfin expressed
the feeling of support which the
Board of Regents has for President
Little and his plans for the University.
Shirley Smith, secretary, presided at
the occasion.
In the symposium on editorial prac-
tice which constituted the afternoon's
program, Miss Florence C. Davies,
women's editor of the Detroit News,
spoke on the viewpoint of this depart-
ment. Miss Davies made a plea that
the women's page be allowed to re-
main as it is on the grounds that
novel ideas for this department ap-
peal to only a small proportion of the
readers. It must be appreciated, she
continued that the publication of news

"is wholesale, not retail."
