ference to the "Y", which makes
the choice worthy of comment.
Each award indicates perfection in
its class, one for the scholar and
the other for the athlete. But
neither award, it seems to us,
should be preferred over the other
by any man.
Rather, the admirable man is the
one who can win both; he offers to
humanity both a trained body and
a trained mind. In an age boast-
ing more or less full development,
a rounded character is necessarily
required from each individual. The
Conference medal awarded to the
man in each Big Ten school who
is the best scholar and the best
athlete is an example of an award
worthy of every one's admiration
and approval.

THE NEW FRESHMAN BOSS
Announcement was made yester-
day afternoon that Prof. Philip E
Bursley of the romance language
department had been named a
head of Freshman week for nex
fall. In taking the office, he re
places Prof. William A. Frayer wh
has had charge of the week dur
ing the two years of use in thi
University. Professor Bursley suc
ceeds to the position from a plac
on the Freshman Week commit
tee.
About the only thing that Pro
fessor Bursley will now say abou
the plans for the 1929 week is tha
they expect to make some change
even while keeping the same gen
eral scheme. Further than this
Professor Bursley is remaining dis
creetly silent, which is wise at thi
time. Past Freshman weeks hav
clearly brought out certain fault
in the system used, and just as th
one last fall was an improvemen
over the first, the committee i
charge hopes to improve the pla
for next Fall. But for certain idea
to be given out at the present.tim
when the final plan is unaccepte
would be misleading and injuriou
in case any should fail in commit
tee.
Freshman week has become a
accepted institution in educationa
circles in this country, and at th
present, hundreds of schools an
colleges ae staging such session
of their own, ranging in lengt
- from one day to a week.
There isn o doubt in the mind
of the upperclassmen here tha
the week is invaluable in introduc
ing the University to the new stu
dents. It has been of extremel
valuable importance to both fac
ulty and old students, in additio
. to the new ones. But on the oth
- hand, there is still room for muc
improvement, and in this wor
f the University can do nothing b
wish Professor Bursley and his co
leagues the best of success in pu
ting over the changes. The tin
t is at hand when high school st
e dents are looking toward colleg
1 but they will need a more effecti
r introductionto college than speci
literature and the say-so of b
brother "up at schoo."

THE BAND ACTS

After passing through a period
of instability and uncertainty dur-
ing which its very existence was at
times in jeopardy, the Varsity band
has finally arrived at a solution of
its problem which seems both log-
ical and commendable.
As a result' of the new arrange-
ment which was made possible
through the activity of Detroit and
Ann Arbor alumni, the band has
agreed to enroll for drill work with
the University R. O. T. C. unit
This step means that while the or-
ganization of the band remains in-
tact, its status is changed from
that of a public activity to that of
a University course for credit. In
consequence freshmen are now
eligible for band membership.
Further than this, the recent
action of the band makes possibl
an advantage long advocated in
these columns, that of credit .for
the band. Credit, it is true, can
only be obtained by participation
in the work in ;'military science
Band drill, however, will be accept-
ed in the place of infantry drill as
a requirement for-this credit.
Viewed from a different stand-
point, the offering of credit makes
it possible for the band directors
to require attendance at drill for-
mations and band practices. This
in itself should insure an organiza-
tion improved as a musical as wel
as a marching unit.
The plan as a whole appear
well devised and of much more
than the passing significance witt
which it is likely to be viewed b3
the uninitiated. Those alumni ane
student interests which have beer
largely responsible for its final at-
tainment are deserving of the ap-
preciation of all friends of Mich.
igan. Their work is to be con-
gratula'ted.
HELPING THE' NEIGHBORS
Definite decision to continue
the Coolidge policy of giving mora
and material support to the Mex-
scan government has been one of
the first moves of the new presi-
dent. The policy of embargo or
arms has been in force under the
Coolidge proclamation of January
1924. -
Since there have existed in Mex-
ico conditions, of serious domestic
violence, the wisdom of keeping
arms from the rebels is evident

HOPWOOD BEQUEST
The Avery Hopwood Bequest to
the University has raised a num-
ber of questions, principally in re-
gard to the distribution of the
prizes this year. As the story ap-
peared in the front page of The
Daily recently, acceptance of the.
gift depends on the action of the
Regents, which is perfectly true ex-
cept that the Hopwood estate has
not been settled yet and the funds
will not be available until son-ic
time in the fall.
The interest that accures from
the gift amounts to some seven
thousand dollars yearly and should
provides a decided stimulus' to the
creative arts which, as The Daily
pointed out yesterday, are un-
doubtedly mercenary in sonic ex-
tent, whether the gifts are dis-
tributed as prizes for individual
work or in the form of traveling
fellowships. The bequest, as the
Regents will act upon it, contains
no restrictions for its use except
the obvious one of encouraging
and materially assisting promising
talent in the fields of dramatic
writing, poetry, the novel or Ithe
essay.
As the New York Times reported
the story last summer, it appeared
that Hopwood's purpose was to en-
courage the radical, the iconoclas-
tic and the modernistic in literary
lines-which would seem rather
ironic if the committee of award
were to be members of tIhe faculty.
But the general nature of tbe be,
quest should guarantee a ex-
traordinary impetus to creative
writing on the campus, and inci-
dentally would serve to bring to
light much of the material which
local mei are already contribut-
ing to reputable magazines without
making a fuss in the rhetoric de-
partment about it.

LIGHT ON CHINESE CULTURE
(From New York Evening Post)
The American Council of Learn-
ed Societies has announced a
campaign for the dissemination of
Chinese cultural i n f 1u e n c e s
throughout the country, urging
upon American universities the
suitability of including in their
curricula courses on the language,
literature and civilization of this
most ancient of nations. Its pro-
gram is to endeavor to make avail-
able to this country the vast cul-
tural reservoir which centuries of
study have built up in the Far East.
When we think of how important
an understanding of China is from
any broad point of view, and how
even more important it is bound
to become as East and West grow
closer under the stimulus of mod-
ern means of communications, the
program of the council appears
eminently wise. We cannot afford
to ignore Chinese philosophy en-
tirely in our absorption in Amer-
ican and European culture. We
cannot afford complete ignorance
of a literature which until 1750
accounted for more than half of
the books in existence. China
bulks too large in world affairs,
and from a purely practical point
