POLITICS VS. UNIVERSITY
Lest a mistaken notion get
further abroad that the Regents
are influenced by politics, or that
The Daily believes they are so in-
fluenced, it is evidently necessary
to reaffirm here the vital impor-
tance of preserving the tradition
built barrier which separates con-
trol of the University from all em-
broilment in Michigan's political
stew.
The Daily has consistently at-
tacked Governor Green's efforts to
make this University a source of
political patronage, and at no time
has it intimated that the Regents
are gubernatorial) tools. Anent the
governor's proposal that all state-
supported schools be placed under
a single governing board (which
Republican machinists c o ul d
pack), The Daily has called atten-
tion on several occasions to the
bitterness and lack of effective ad-
ministration at Michigan State
college which followed that insti-
tution's projection into the politi-
cal arena.
When the governor, with a bald
political motive, recently presumed
to dictate the choice of President
Little successor, The Daily was
prompt to resent this intrusion of
patronage into a matter reserved
by wisdom, tradition, and the state
constitution to our Board of Re-
gents.
The virtue of keeping politics and
the University forever separate is
fundamental, obvious, abecedarian.
Where the shaping of educational
politics demands men of the ut-
most judgment, sobriety, tnd cath-
olicity, there is no room for the
noisy, partisan demagogues who
force voters into line and win for
themselves political office. When
the presidency and the regencies
of the University become salaried
sinecures for friends of the Lansing
hegemony, Michigan can wave a
fond farewell to her hope of edu-
cational preeminence.
The future of the University
must be jealously guarded against
any move, however insignificant, to
make politics cut a figure on the
local campus. A case in point is
yesterday's Democratic nomination
for regent of Horatio J. Abbott, an
able man but a political campaign-i

The editors of the Daily North-
western have announced a willing-
ness to take over the management
of The Daily after bankruptcy pro-
ceedings have been filed by the
present staff of this publication.
The humors of bankruptcy are evi-
dently based on the contention of
the student editors at Northwest-'
ern, that we have made three mis-
takes in two months.
In considering these alleged
mistakes it should be noticed that;
