of influence in the state, and it ap-
pears that there are few better ways
than by allowing the hockey team to
use the Olympia rink and to allow the
Varsity band to accompany it.
Enrollment in American colleges
and universities, according to statis-
tics recently compiled, has increased
25 per cent in the last five years. That
the portals of the majority of the
larger colleges and universities in
America have been gradually opened
to more students than ever before in
the history of education is less im-
portant, however, than the considera-
tion due to the effect of this tendency.
At the present time the University
of California tops the enrollment list
with 17,000 full time students, and
Columbia ranks second with 13,000,
although counting summer school and
part-time students, Columbia has 30,-
000. Michigan is among the leaders
in high enrollment figures with nearly
10,000 students, a figure which, unlike
those in most other universities which
have been on the increase, is some-
what smaller than in recent years.
The act is that selectivity has grad-
ually become a part of Michigan's en-
trance requirements, and presumably
not without good results.
The matter of importance in regard
to the tendency of more persons than
ever demanding a college education,
is not what their immediate accomp-
lishments will be, but what will be
the effect on the United States in the
future when the proportion of college
trained men comes to be greater in
the affairs of the country.
The sum and substance of the sit-
uation is that America never stood in
greater need of wise and courageous
leadership than today. If colleges can
produce leaders among men, it will
mean a great deal; but if colleges do
not train for leadership, enrollment
figures may have little significance.
After all, fundamentally, it is the law
of effects with which educators should
be concerned.

With the awarding of contracts for
construction of the Women's League
building, the realization of a long,
anticipated dream has arrived at th@
first of the steps which will make it
a reality. This action marks the be-
ginning of the end of a story char-
acterized by ambition and persever-
The campaign for funds necessary
for the erection of, the building was
inaugurated five years ago under the
direction of the Alumnae council. At
this time the aim was to raise a
pledge of $1,000,000, no less than
$700,000 of which amount has been'
paid in to date. This meant that suf-
ficient funds were available for the
letting of contracts to start construc-
tion work.
For their combined efforts in secur-
ing the pledge which makes possible
the final step of erecting the building
itself, the Alumnae council, under-
graduate women, Michigan alumnae
and alumnae contributors outside the
University who have evinced an in-
terest in the project, are to be heartily
When the Varsity band played at
the Olympia arena last night for the
hockey game between the Universities
of Michigan and Minnesota, a new
step was taken in the policy of activ-
ities in this University.
According to Robert A. Campbell,
who is the faculty manager of the
bands and Glee club, the new policy
is to create, in Detroit, a true Michi-
gan event, with a game played by a
Varsity team and with the band pres-
ent just the same as at the major
sport games in Ani Arbor and out-of-
town. The game at the Olympia, last'
night, was the first real example of
this new plan: the teams of the two
universities met in a Conference
game, and the band played before the
game and between the halves just as

sities of life. It cannot be denied that
there is a crying need for dormitories
and more food, and who is better
equipped than the state to care for the
tender youth entrusted to its care. It
has done much already in legislation
and administration to properly dispose
of its great resopnsibility, so price-
fixing of housing and food should be
comparatively simple. We thoroughly
appreciate the fact that our President
has the student's interest at heart
despite the insidious intimations con-
cerning dormitories whereby a greater
degree of discipline could be main-
There really are great numbers that
must be properly cared for in this
vast institution of learning, and the
lure of better prices always carries a
genuine appeal. Give the mob plenty
of food and good housing at reduced
rates to perpetuate submissive peon-
age. Plutocrats all through history
have known this Sesame to succulent
revenue of many kinds and degrees.
We know full well that mass hous-
ing and dispensing of vitals at cost
will be realized by the University ere
long. Our own inconsequential obser-
vations assure this, to-wit: trifling
little incidents like trying to obtain
an automobile permit for business use
as a means of livelihood. We might
well presume that there would be
more student help available for wait-
ers, thereby reducing the overhead
and consequently the price of food.
All we can do is to hope and this we
dare not do when the inscriptions over
our portals might well be, "All ye who
enter here abandon hope." Neverthe-
less we do hope that dormitories may
restore the recently shaken demo-
cratic name that Michigan has always

a revlew, by Nelson J. Smith, Jr.
This "new style advocatus diaboli"
(as the jacket would have it) is tread-
ing on dangerous ground-on ground
that takes more finesse and more ma-j
turity than a few years with the
literati of New York will give to any
man, no matter what his precocity.
He is playing with the classics and
the immortals; and playing with a
1jight frivolous touch which brings no I
jgood, as it seeks no good.
Shakespeare, Milton, Swift, Byron,
Dickens, Poe, Whitman, Hardy--all of
these men have their places in the
book. They are laughed to scorn,
they are made the butt of jibes, they
are garotted on the cruel jests of
Boyd. But always it is the scholars
at whom the final thrust is aimed, for,
so Boyd says, it is the scholars who
are perpetuating the myths. Of the
mandarins and their relation to
Shakespeare he says, "Thus a two
fold phenomenon is created by thisj
curious religion (of image-making);
one is asked simultaneously to wor-
shi Shakespeare and to join in the
c, n)spiracy to make him unintelligible,
unenjoyable, and inaccessible."j
The rest of the criticisms run on in
the same vein; and they are as little
touched with good sense-much less j
touched with a sense of humor which
is fair and not simply devastating. I

A Station-to-Station call is one that is made to a certain telephone, rather than to some person in
particular, which would be a Person-to-Person call.
If you do not know the number of the distant telephone, give the operator the name and address and
specify that you will talk with "anyone" who answers at the called telephone.
Day rates, 4:30 a. ii. to 7 p. in., and evening rates, 7 p. m. to 13:30 p. mn., are higher than night rates.
