Culminating a long argumen
The Daily yesterday carried a stor
concerning the establishment o
1837 as the date of the founding o
the University. This date was se
by the Board of Regents at its las
meeting, but the wording of th
resolution was not made publi
until Friday.
The Supreme court of the stat
in its decision has pointed out tha
while the Regents and the Trustee
of the University are successors t
the President and Didactors of th
Catholipistemiad created in 1811
there was no act creating an insti
tution similar to the University o
Michigan until 1837. The Regent
having been empowered with th
right of making and using a com
mon seal, the court has backed it
right to use 1837 as the date of th
seal. This means, therefore, tha
the University's founding date wa
1837 and not 1817.
This may put to rest some of th
argument that has been prevalen
about the founding, but much mor
may be expected. 'The 1817 propo
nents have yet too much to say
and although the matter has beet
ended officially and the 1837 sup
porters may now breathe freely
further argument is certain.
But the Regents have decide
that the University is not yet 10
years old, and administration an
future students may look forwar
to a real celebration in 1937. Unti
then, "University . . . diplomas .
and other literature" will bear th
date 1837 in cold type. Our nobl
Institution is only 91 years old.

It is with just pride that Michi-
gan pays tribute to her Varsity to-
day. Although in years to come it
will not be remembered for its
record of games kwon, it will be re-
rnembered, and this is more import-
ant, as one of the greatest fighting,

It has been but a little more than
five weeks since Michigan's secon
annual Freshman week was brough
to a close and classes begun for an
other year. During the week tha
preceeded the resumption of clas
ses, freshmen and Freshman wee]
occupied the center of the stage.
Once classes had started, how
ever, the freshman was turned ove
to his instructors and left to shif
chiefly for himself. Except as h4
wore or neglected to wear his pot
and seldom enough then, the Uni
versity, barring rare instances
seemed to have forgotten his exis
tance, forgotten that he was nevw
and strange to college life.
A few worthwhile men on the
faculty continued as in previous
years to supervise and meet
from time to time with a group of
freshmen but for the most part th
freshman was left to sink or swim
as his capabilities and good fortune
might so direct.
I Recent events have witnessed th
inauguration of the Jnion's annual
program for freshmen which, un-
fortunately, must of necessity be
limited in scope and consist of
plans for oversized groups. Carry-
ing with it as it does a system of
meetings through the year, organ-
ization of the class for the Fall
games, and the conducting of an
all-freshman banquet early in De-
cember, ^the program is deserving
of commendation and recommen-
dation to members of the class of

Yesterday's victory over Illinois,
champions of 1927, and erstwhile
contenders for the 1928 title, was
particularly sweet to such a team.
An almost totally inexperienced
eleven, driven to its best, day after
day, in unusually hard and numer-
ous practice sessions and rewarded
only by defeat of four successive
week-ends, it came back a week ago
and fought the Cardinal of Wis-
consin to a standstill.
From a come-back to victory was
but a matter of days. That the
victory should be over an opponent,
and a rival as highly regarded as
Illinois is regarded by Michigan
added immeasureably to the thrill
and drama of the contest. It has
been said, and truly, that Michigan
has no foe which she would rather
beat than Illinois.
Coach Zuppke's Orange and Blue
elevens always play a great game
and always show a spirit that has
aptly led them to be called theh
"Fighting Illini." Handicapped by
an injury to Timm in the early
moments of play, and momentarily
dazed by the Wolverine score, the
Illinois team came back hard and
played a great game. That Peter's
dropkick should bounce the wrong
way after hitting the cross bar was
a tough break for any team. That
it should mean the difference be-
tween defeat and a tie clearly in-
dicates the closeness of play.
The honor of victory over such a
foe, it may be hoped, will prove at
least a partial balm to the men who
compose the Maize and Blue squad.
They have proven, and nobly, that
it is fighting spirit which wins the
greatest victories. That they have
that spirit there is no question.
Recognition must be paid before
closing to a great Michigan line.
Time and again that powerful for-
ward wall called a halt when it
