Telling of the advantages of a
''floating university" educatio,
Prof.- W. C. Rufus, PhD., assistan
Professbr of astronomy, heartil:
gndorsed the 1929 campaign fo:
apphcants, n an interview re-
cently.
"Twenty-two Michigan men an
women were students on the 1926-
27 cruise "Dr. Rufus said, "includ-
ing four members of the "floating'
faculty. Mr. and Mrs. Lionel Crc-
4er,. Capt. Albert Freeman and Mrs
Freeman, and myself were among
the older members of t4 , ocear
school. Capt. Freeman had charg
of the. Physical Education, Mr
Crocker assisted in the rhetoric de-
partment, and I had charge of
mathematics, astronomy and navi-
gation."
When asked about some of the
high lights of the 1927 tour, Pro-
fessor Rufus smiled and rubbed his
forehead.
"I don't know where to begin,
there were so many," he continued,
"I suppose, though, that our re-
ception by Mussolini and my in-
terview with Pope Pius XI gave me
the biggest thrills. I remember
once, when we were in Bankok,
Pam, the Kingof Siam, who is an
Oxford man, turned over the dor-
nitories to our men students for
the night, and opened'the former
royal palace for the convenience
of the faculty. The King was a
most courteous creature, giving us
free reign everywhere. I will never
forget our'reception in his court."
Professor Rufus went on to ex-
plain the advantages of a college
education on the high seas. He
stressed the fact that "reading
about something is one thing; se-
ing the original is another."
"For political science, interna-
tional relations, and economics, I
can't imagine a ;more effective
method than through the "float-]
ing University"," the professor cdn-
cluded. "The conferences with stu-
delts of foreign Universities give
o.inen and women the other side
oggrat Thternational problems
hi'f. they could never grasp
through reading alone. The ideal
plan would be three years in a land
University and one year on the
cruise.'
The number of available places
fot the 1929-30 world "floating
Tniversity" has been cut from 600
1ito00. This decrease will necessi-
tite- immediate action on the part
4f any Michigan students who are
iterested in the novel educational
plan. Further information can be
secured from Kenneth G. Patrick,

lpha Nu Has Second
Literature Program
Alpha Ni instituted its second
prpgram of literature review and
citicism last night in the Alpha
Nu room with a discussion of ar-
igles published for the "Sibyl", the
1i ditional bi-monthly magazine of
the fraternity.
From the organization's incep-
tien in the roaring forties down
t ough the Civil war period the

"§ibyl" was onie of the principal
functions of the society. Soon
after the Civil war the fraternity
turned to a purely forensic group
an(d the "Sibyl" was discontinued.
The discovery of several ancient
diocumcnts recently prompted the
return of° the. magazine, so that it
is now a regular form of procedure,
the first program of which was
ield in January. Richard M. Web-
ber, '29, is editor.
The meeting last night consisted
of three essay5 written by various
inmbers of the society. "The Re-
birth of the Sibyl" was the feature.
