white wooden benches painted to imi-;

If debaters have had in the past a
reputation for acuta intelligence, a
brief examination of the subject
which will be used for tryouts for the
debate class next week would dispel
any such illusion. It seems that uni-
versity students are invited to try
out for the class from which will be
chosen Michigan's varsity debate
team next semester, and supposedly
sane adults are expected to give five-
minute speeches on the subject as-
signed. Briefly stated, the proposi-
tion is "Resolved; that the legislative
prescription, disapproval, or prohibi-
tion of special doctrines, theories, or
data on the comments of courses of-
fered in educational institutions are
contrary to the public welfare."
The odd part of it is that the sub-
ject is actually ambiguous in state-
ment. For instance, it is perfectly
impospible to tell whether the,author
imjeans "doctrines, theories, or data
on the comments of courses" or
whither it means merely "data on the
('onmo nt:; of courses." Of course the
herarti(ed "befuddlers" whoestry outfor

Scarcely a year goes by which does
not see the formation -of at least a

The latest acquisition to the campusI
was Phi Eta Sigma, which classes it-
self as a "freshman honorary scholas-

such recognition o. their work, scho-
lastic or otherwise, after one year in
attendance at the University, they
ought to be given salaries during their
senior year instead of only a Phi Beta
Kappa key!
There are honorary clubs here inI
every ffeld of academic work, ranging
from chemistry to music, for women
as well as men. The campus is bless-
ed with no less than six literary so-I

solidated into one organization. We

be required to withdraw their steam-
ers from the Yang-tse river. At the
present time, Chinese shipping is al-
most completely tied up, and so this 3
move would virtually blockade all the
ports in the territory near Hankow.
If the British government supports
the boycott, it is believed that the I
Cantonese government will be unable
to stand for more than two weeks.
Of course, such a policy is not all
sweetness and light for the British
commercial interests. The recent
publication of Chinese custom returns
from foreign trade shows a continued
slump in British trade, with Japan the
chief gainer. Until the recent imposi-

three hours each week. And then
there are the thriving municipal asso-
ciations, such as the Saginaw club and
the Mount Clemens club!
Over-organization is the keynote to
the situation. How many of the
clubs, societies and so-called fraterni-
ties listed in the Michiganensian meet;
regularly every week or two, and how,
many further actually accomplish
anything during the year even if their
attendance figures are satisfactory?
There are only two methods of im-
proving the present situation besides
discouraging the establishment of
new organizations which cannot ful-
fill a real purpose. One method is
consolidation of clubs or societies
which have similar interests; tle'
other is voluntary extinction, such as
was the commendable course taken
last year when Pi Delta Epsilon, hon-
orary journalistic fraternity, conclud-
ed its purpose here was negligible.
Michigan runs to dignified and
stately things. Massive marble pil-
lars representing the austere majesty
of knowledge, loom on every side. Our

ment, the latter has steadily profited
by the struggle between the Chinese ;
and the British.-
The collection of these revenues, as
well as the advance of the Cantonese,'
however, has added obstacles to com-
merce which promise to affect the ,
Japanese attitude toward the Nation-j
alist forces. Business men have asked
the Japanese government to extend
recognition to the Cantonese, and,
with that move supported by a large
section of the House of Peers, it is
imminent at any time.
These variations in trade relations1
with China have become so serious
that some observers have predicted1
an international crisis between Eng-
land and Japan. Though an open
break is very dq btful, it is probable,
however, that important and interest-
ing changes in the commercial situa-
tion of the Near East will continue. t

I suppose no one would disagree
with you in your contention that
greater breadth is desirable in grad-
uate students. The purpose of this
letter is to answer, that a certain pre-
valent overemphasis on "breadth" mayI
be blinding us to certain desirable
phases of "old fashioned" education,
which at least entailed a rigor in
mental discipline and a thoroughness
and continunty in curriculum, un-
heard of where education by inclina-
tion and pleasure necessitates such a
catalogue regulation as "at least
two-thirds of the work taken in resi-
dence beyond the sophomore year,
must be in courses not open to first
year students."
