Night Editor-NELSON J. SMITH, JR.
What started a year ago as a mere
idea is now definitely in the process
of germination; and where nothing
had been accomplished a year ago
there is now a general plan which re-
quires only specific elaboration to be,
put into effect. This, in brief, is the
history of the University college move-
nment, a plan which would place all
entering freshmen on an even basis,
and eliminate at the end of two years
all those unfit to pursue professional
With the announcement this week
of the appointment of a faculty com-
mittee for the consideration of details
of the University college, and the
intention to place the matter before
the Regents in time for action next
fall, the whole scheme begins to as-
sume definite shape. Thus far it has
been considered and approved by a
committee including the deans of the
various schools and colleges, then it
was approved in principle by the Uni-
versity Senate, and now, on recom-
mendation of the Senate, a faculty
committee of 0 has been appointed to
consider the curyicula to be offered,
the choice of the faculty, and the pro-
motion of students in the new col-
When this committee -has acted
there will remain nothing more in the
way of the project except the con-
siderat ion of the Regents, and it is
quite possible that this will be com-
pletl in time to open the doors of
the new school next fall.
The significance of this new plan in
the field of education is tremendous
inleed,. Nothing so revolutionary on
such a large scale, has ever been at-
tempted , by any university in the
c(ountry before. It means, in effect,
the entire alteration of the present
conception of an American university,
and involves the adoption of a new
sandard by which to mold our col-
lege men and women.
It would, in the first place ,pht all
freshmen in the University college'

sonally noted by their instructors;
will have the opportunity for investi-

"The denunciation of war is a pleas-
ant but ine'ffectual way of spending
one's time," was the statement of Pro-}
fessor Slosson of the history depart-
ment in his recent speech on the pros-
pects for peace in the world. Outlin-
ing the attitude of the world with re-
gard to peace and the prevention of
war, Professor Slosson advocated im-
mediate steps toward some machinery
which would actually function in the
prevention of war, and named the
world state as seeming to offer the
most logical settlement of the situa-
This speech contains, in effect, the
very essence of the thoughts and re-
actions of many of the informed and
thinking people of the world today.
It recognizes that steps toward peace
are, at the present time necessary;
but at the same time it acknowledges
that the end in view-a world state or
league with international policing--is
somewhat idealistic. To cross the gap
between these two ideas, the im-
mediate and the future good, some
action is advocated which will deter-
mine 4 present-day logical substitute
and preparation for the end which is
inevitable in acivilized and cultured
Just as the order of the world has
only been achieved by steps in control
and regulation, so has peace been
maintained. In the beginning the
groups to which any idividual owed
his support and his allegiance were
essentially very small. Then came the
city, the state, and finally the nation.
Now to tie the nations together and to
.stimulate in individuals an interna-
tionally-minded spirit, seems only the
logical step. From this international
mindedness will come peace and un-
But some steps must be taken be-
sides mere talk. Such organizations
as the league to prevent war ,and
other similar groups are doing nothing
but urge people to take a stand
against war.
The mere taking of this stand will
never prevent war. What we must
have is some basis for an understand-
ing. The agency which takes upon
itself to do this is the agency that willI
effect world peace. But it must act?

j and its own merits alone.
The University of Michigan may
well be proud of the fact that at the
present time it has no less than 76I
different loan funds given by indivi-
duals and organizations for the use
of students who are financially un-
able to continue their' college educa-
tion without assistance. These funds,
varying in size from $100 to $20,000,
total nearly $137,000. They have been
made available through the generosity
of various persons in the state who
believe in dducation and are willing to
contribute that students, who might
not otherwise be able, finish their 'col-
lege education.
In previous years, according to J.
A. Bursley, dean of students, no dif-
ficulty was encountered in meeting
the demands of needy students for
loans. This fall, however, calb-s for
financial assistance have been so
numerous that several have had to be
denied and other students were grant-
ed only a part of what they asked for.
This is thought to be due largely to the
difficulty many students had in find-
ing work during the summer months.
In view of the fact that the student
loan fund maintained by the Univer-
sity is rendering a real service, every
effort to keep it in sufficient funds
should be encouraged.
In this respect, the munificient ad-
dition of~ $23,000 to the fund from -Mr.
and Mrs. A. J. Brosseau, which form-
ed the nucleus of the Brosseau Foun-
dation, is particularly to be commend-
ed. The only restriction that the fund
cannot be loaned for use of students
of law, medicine or art is, however,
illustrative of another point in con-
nection with the loans for this fund.
As Dlean Bursley has pointed out,
the restrictions placed in the deeds
of such gifts that they be used for
specific purposes means very ofteni
that the moiey cannot be used to the
best advantage, which, in turn, is con-
trary to what the donor desired. It
is to be hoped, with the respect to the
real good the funds are doing for
needy students in the University, that
in any future contributory sums, sucih
restrictions will be omitted.
Recognizing that the student loan
funds do the students, the 'University
and Qducation in the state of Mich-
igan a real good, the donors are to be

of the aria. She sings them with
power, with dramatic color, and with
feeling. She did not seem to hit
quite the same height with her songs:
I "Voron" by Dubleva and "Oh, Cease
Thy Singing" by Rachmaninoff. She
sang her encores in a somewhat ro-
bust manner, "La Paloma" especially l
did she give a mighty bounce.
Mr. Lazzari's chief solo "Largo
dally Factotum della Citta" from Ros- #
sini's "Barber of Seville" was sung
in a manner that gave proof of his
high abilities. Lazzari's voice is
powerful and -,.resonant, and he is
capable of modulations that give it
almost infinite shades. One of his en-
gores, an Italian folk song, was sung
in a lovely fashion and made us wish

their accomplished manner.

Tonight's performance of "OnI
Approval" will conclude a run of
eight performances, all well sold, and
well received by the respective audi-
ences. "On Approval" has not proved
to be one of the most outstanding bills
of Mimes' various and sundry activi-
ies, but it was without question very
well done. At times there was some
difficulty in George, Twelfth Duke of
Bristol's remembering his lines, and
at times the action was a little slow.

Although Hallowe'en is commonly devoted to merry-
iflaking in the united States as well as other countries, it
1s ineresting to note some of the old beliefs and customs of
other lands.
The vigil of All Hallows or festival of All Saints being
November 1st, Hallowe'en is the evening of October 31st.
It is associated in the popular imagination with the prevalence
of supernatural influences and is clearly a relic of pagan times.
In England it was formerly known as "Nutcrack Niglt"
it being customary to crack nuts, duck for apples in a tub of
water and perform other harmless fireside revelries. All of
the things were survivals of the festival of "Romona" on
November 1st. Still older than these customs were the 101-
lowe'en Fires, survivals of Druidical ceremonies.
In Roman Catholic countries it was their Decoration
Day when they visited the cemeteries to lay flowers on the
graves of relatives and friends.
In Scotland the ceremonies of the eve were formerly re-
garded in a highly superstitious light. The principal event
of the evening was that of consulting the future to discover
who should be the partner in life.
