Mater. It is important for us, tonight,
to remember- that we may be at a
turning point in the career of your
LUniversity. For more than 50 years
Michigan has set the pace and the
standards for the state universities of
America. Tonight, perhaps she is
about to take the first steps towardt
a new standard. She has seen many
new sister institutions originate and
grow to proportions almost equal to
her own. She has seen many ap-
proximately her own age which have
developed a high grade of scholar-
ship. Through all these years, how-
ever, she has attempted and achieved
new things in education, and has as-
sumea leaership through initiative,
cQurage, originality and high ideals.
To Interest Alumni
"The problem with which we are
faced at present is to interest the
alunni in a new order of alumni
achievement. This purpose is entire-
ly different from anything ever at-
tempted by a university of our own
or of any other type. To do this it
wil be necessary to take for granted
at the outset that those of you who
are here tonight do not need any
arguments to convince you of Michi-
gan's high aims and of Michigan'sI
rea opportunities. If we are to do
anything at all which will last1
through the years and serve as an
impetus to further progress, it m'ust
be from the outset with the under-
standing that you are already con-
vinced of the value of a project of the
general type to be outlined and that
you are willing as individuals to lend
your weight to furthering it.

Undergraduate Analyzed
"What is an alumni university? This
may well be asked, and in order to
understand better what his involved,
let us for a moment analyze what is
an undergraduate or graduate uni-
versity of the type which is charac-
teristic of the University of Michi-
gan as it at present exists? A uni-
versity is a cooperative venture be-
tween the state which supports it,
its students and its faculty in com-
mon service and with common aims
and ideals. The state gives support
to the university and expects sup-
port from it. The faculty receives aid
from the state and is expected in re-'
turn to give their energy and wisdom
to the probltms of the state. The
students receive assistance from the
state and are its servants. They are
therefore expected to give in return
some of their energies and wisdom to
its problems. Similarly the faculty
and the students are fundamentally
interrelated for, a comon good and
presumably common ieals. This be-
ing the case, no alumni university
can be 'complete unless it is founded
cn the mutual basis of service to and
by the alumnus. He must receive
soirething from the organization as it
is planned,,iand he must give something
to it in return. He must enter into
full partnership with the other mem-
bers of the firm of State, Faculty, and
Students. It is the type of inter-
relationship so vivid and active in
one's college years which afterwards
