made to take the question very vitally
to heart-for popular oratory of the
spell-binding variety has rather lost
its wide appeal in the past decade
or so.
The ten-mile swim, planned for the
first time last year by the Union, will
be held again this spring, according
to a recent announcement by officals
of that organization. According to
the terms of the contest, all students
swimming ten miles, or 704 laps, be-
fore June 1, will have their names en-
graved on the large silver cup given
for the purpose and will receive med-
als presented by the Union.
The value of the ten-mile swim as
a competitive event is practically nil;
as a means of developing interest in
swimming on the part of the student
body, however, it is quite a different
thing. It is too trite an axiom to
need repeating that the placing of a
prize or a goal is an immense incen-
tive to any form of activity, and the
placing of the cup and medals, small
though they may seem in regard to
any large end, is a worthwhile and
well-designed move.
Last year, with the same reward,
more than a hundred students were
induced to try for the prize. There is
no reason why the present meet
should not attract at least a similar
number of entrants-and if it does it
has certainly accomplished its pur-
pose of promoting healthful exercise
among the students of the University.
On the occasion of his inaugural
address on assuming his duties as the
new governor general recently, Henry
L. Stimson admonished the Filipinos
to forget politics for a while and to
concentrate their efforts on economic
development as a means of obtaining
greater freedom. In so advising the
Filipinos, the new incumbent closely
adhered to the logic contained in Col-
onel Carmi A. Thompson's report of a
few months ago after visiting the
Philippines to secure information for
President Coolidge.
Colonel Thompson concluded that
the people of many of the islands of
the Philippine group have made prog-
ress in educational and agricultural
development, but that they speak
many languages and dialects, some of
which have not been reduced to writ-
ing. Resources and experience are
notably lacking, and interest in a
common pursuit is undeniably the
logical path to greater independence
which, since the islands lie in the
shadow of Japanese aggression, they
are not yet prepared for without the
present political and financial sup-
port of the United States.
It has been quite a while now since
any new charges were introduced into
the engrossing political drama in In-
diana, but probably the spring elec-
tions will thaw out a new supply of
(University of Washington Daily.)
Sooner or later, along the path of
educational endeavor, the average stu-

dent comes to a fork in the oad,
where he must decide whether his
purpose in life be to acquire or to
create, and to which end he should
bend his energies.
Discussing tie question of commer-
cial or creative careers, Lucien Price,
author-newspaperman, says: "The
conflict between the artist and the
trader-the conflict between the will

Night Editor-NELSON J. SMITH, Jr.

Few more fitting tributes could be
made to a man, who gave 38 years of
his life in active teaching in the Uni-
versity than the fine plaque which
will be unveiled soon in the engineer-
ing arch to the memory of Prof.
Joseph Baker Davis. It is a tribute
which demonstrates in only a small
way the debt which the University
and engineering college owe to this
pioneer professor, yet it is a dignified
and eloquent memorial to a life given
to the cause of education in engineer-
To eulogize Professor Davis is use-
less. A graduate of the University in
the class of 1868, he entered the
teaching staff in 1870, and considered
active work in both teaching and
practical engineering until 1908, when
he retired. During this time both the
engineering college and the Univer-'
sity as a whole made tremendous!
strides-strides due in no small meas-
ure to such men as Professor Davis.
It is with sincere regard and a high
sense of appreciation for the contribu-
tion which the life of Joseph Baker
Davis made to Michigan that the Uni-
versity will greet the unveiling of thet
memorial plaque to his name.

By Bennett J. Doty. The Century
Company. New York, 1928. $3.00
(Courtesy of the Print and Book,
Like unto Caesar, Doty is the hero
of his own war story. And also like
unto Caesar, his tale is slightly in-
incredible. But at least this gentle-
men has lost no time in cashing in on
his experiences while the newspaper
fluorishes concerning his desertion
and imprisonment are still flaming in
the minds of the masses.
Exceeding our previous expecta-
tions, however, the book is rather
pleasant reading. Doty (or whoever
did write the book) has attempted no
I rhetorical necromancy; the tale is
told in a straightforward , unorna-
mented narrative tone, with no "Beau
Gestian" touches. Doty's point of
view shifts rather strangely; at one
moment he lauds the French Foreign
Legion as a body of heroes, at the
next he paints them as a band of
ruffians, bound in merciless chains.
Perhaps the paradox is only super-
ficial, perhaps such metamorphoses I
do .occur in the whitehot crucible of
There is one truly wonderful frag-
ment in the work. Doty's description
of the attack of the Druse forces on
the tiny French garrison at Mous-
seifre ranks well with any batte
scene in the history of all writing.
But from this a gradual letdown oc-
curs until the author, bored with
road building and reconstruction de-f
serted. His subsequent capture, im-
prisonment, and release upon the im-
passioned pleas of the American con-
sul and the U. S. Marines is newspa-
per history in the best Richard Hard-t
ing Davis style.
And as our hero left the Legion to
return to the Land of the Free and,
the Home of the Brave, a sardonic
colonel smiled and said:

the Legion. Try to tell the truth..."
