RACKS MODERN YOUTH,
Speaks Before Large Audience At
Flaying the weaklings who decry
the present and look to the past
and the future for improvement,
the Reverend John Timothy Stone
defended modern youth before a
large student convocation in Hill
auditorium Sunday, and preached
a modern gospel of sympathy, con-
fidence, understanding, and love.
"We need to be sympathetic in-
stead of cynical," Stone said, "con-
fident instead of critical, controlled,
by love instead of compelled by
law, instructed instead of restrict-
ed of dictation, understanding in-
stead of argument, and Christ in-j
stead of creed."
Taking an informal text from
Theodore Roosevelt, "Do the .best
you can with what you've got
where you are," Stone deplored the
prevalent tendency to compare the
present collegiate type with that
of fifty years ago and find him
mentally and spiritually inferior.
It is ohly the weaklings who look
back to the "good old days" or
ahead to a "marvelous future" and
destroy the achievements and no-
bility of the present day.
"This is a day of wonderful op-
portunity," he said. We- should be
satisfied with it. It is only the
poor fisherman who always wants to
change his stream, the weak man
who is always anxious to change
his job. It is-only t;e weakling
who wants something else than the
opportunity of the present and
turns historian \or prophet.

buildings already built from poured
concrete are to be foupd in Ger-

more of it should be done especially
in America where at the present
time concrete is seldom used ex-

Pawlowski To Read
Paper At Convention
Prof. Felix W. Pawlowski, of the
department of aeronautical engin-
eering, left Ann Arbor late yester-
day for Washington, D. C. to attend
a conference called by PresidemL
Coolidge in commemoration of the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the
first sustained, controlled human
flight made by man in heavier

Professor Pawlowski has been
asked to read a paper on aeronau-
tical research to the convention.
Only a few men throughout the
country were selected to thus de-
liver papers to the delegates, who
will represent more than 50 foreign

Crew Stays Aboard
There was no fog at the time of
the mishap. The Celtic was within
a short distance of where ships
usually cast anchor to meet ten-
ders which come from Queenstown
to land mail and passengers.
The Celtic stove a hole directly
under her engine room. The mis-
hap was due to the pilot being un-
able to go aboard owing to a gale.
