alumni of the University who were
active on the campus during their
academic days. It is not only the
definite training and experience which
many of the activities afford that is
often advantageous in later life, but
the numerous acquaintanceships andl
potential friendships which result can
be established in no other way.

It has been proposed in the State
house of representatives that a con-
stitutional amendment be adopted
which would reapportion the State
legislative districts on the basis of
citizenship instead of population.
While this measure may have slight
theorectical merits, it has been ad-
vanced chiefly because it would in-
crease the representation of the farni
districts at the expense of Detroit
and the other cities having a large{
foreign population. In any case, the
benefits of this, violation of direct
representation would be rather doubt-
ful. In Michigan, moreover, it would
further distort the representative
principle, since Detroit, with more
than one-third of the State's popula-
tion, has only five senators out of the
32 in the upper house, and is also un-
derrepresented in the house of rep-

It might well start by correcting theI

Rather than veto the entire naval
appropriation bill and thereby neces-
sitate a special session of Congress,
President Coolidge signed the measure
including the much-discussed threes
cruiser item. In doing so, he was prob-
ably consoled by the fact that the
relatively insignificant sum voted for
this purpose amounts merely to re-
authorizing the construction of these
I vessels.
A more consequential provision in
the naval supply measures, which the
President signed, carried an appropri-
ation of $25,000,000 for aviation, thus
allowing the navy to launch the first
year's program outlined under the five
year. naval expansion bill. In the
construction involved in this item as
