That classes can be sustained
throughout the week or through
any epidemic with the partial at-
tendance of the last few days is
quite undeniable; but the low mo-
rale of the University is extremely
marked. If classes are to be con-,
tinued through the epidemic, it is
certain that the students owe the
University cooperation, at least,
and not the indifferent attitude of'
the present. It is one thing to feel
that school should be closed, and
quite another thing to refuse to
cooperate by attending classes
while school is still in session.
A PROFESSION LOSES
After a period of 18 years of
service the faculty of the Univer-.
sity, Prof. William A. Frayer, of the
History department, has resigneo
his post as a teacher to enter the
administrative side of the educa-
tioral profession. Although it is
with regret that students see him
leave, it is obvious that he is bet-
tering his position in a substantial
way.
Perhaps this may be taken as
stronger evidence that there is
not only one educational profes-
sion including two distinct phases,
but that there are two professions
dealing directly with education;
namely, the teaching end and the
administrative. Using the judg-
ment of one of Michigan's most
widely known teachers as the
basis, we may perhaps infer that
the latter is the more desireable]
of the two in that it offers far
greater opportunities.
With the resignation of Profes-
sor Frayer the teaching profession
has lost one of its best to a profes-
sion which pays more fitting re-
wards for the work done and the
responsibility imposed. At present,
teachers of all classes receive a
very meager compensation for the
years of study and research neces-
sary to attain the title of profes-
sor. Salaries of teachers are not
even a fair return on the invest-
ment made in an education suit-
able for prospective teachers.
While salaries are low as they
are it is only logical to expect that
men who have spent years in pre-
paring themselves for professions
so important as those connected
with education, will break away
from teaching to enter the admin-
istrative field with its more just
returns in the form of higher
salaries.

ANOTHER MARTYR
A man who claims he is prompt-
ed by "patriotism and conscience'
has filed a suit in the federal
court in Cleveland to prevent Her-
bert Hoover from taking office as
President. Technically he asks
that Vice-president Dawes be re-
strained from the usual custom of
certifying the electoral college
vote to the Senate. This fanatic's
point is that the president-elect
has been a resident of the United
I States only since he returned
from his work in Belgium after
the war.
As a radical he is more to be
pitied than criticized, although a
bit of the latter treatment might
bring him to his senses. It is true
that our Constitution says that no
person who has not been "fourteen
years a resident within the United
States" shall be eligible for the
office of President. But does
Myron T. Herrick, the United
States envoy to France since 1921
lose his rights as a citizen and give
up his residence in this country
because he is away on government

business?
Mr. Hoover made several trips
to Europe beginning in the early'
part of 1917 when he started the
Belgium relief movement and re-
turned to the United States to stay
permanently in 1919 after the1
signing of the Armistice. At no
time in these critical years of
world history did this "good-will'
ambassador" make himself liable
to attack on the points of citizen-
ship or non-residence.
It may be interesting to note
that the same gentleman who at-
tacks the president-elect has writ-
ten several books attempting to
prove that the world is not a
globe. We sutgest that he busy

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 19281
Night Editor-JOSEPH E. HOWELL
THE INFLUENZA SPREADS
With snow being forecast by the
weather man for today, and a gen-
eral storm sweeping northward
from Texas to the Lake regions,
assuring Ann Arbor and the imme-
diate vicinity of nothing better
than rainy weather for a day or
two more at the least, the pos-
sibility of the aggravation of
marry of the heavy colds and light
cases of influenza now known to
exist upon the campus is doubly
acute.
Although so-called official state-
ments from health service offi-
cials indicate that there are fewer
calls being made now than there
were during the peak of the in-
crease last week, such statements
mean practically nothing. The fact
should not be lost sight of that
UNTIL THE NUMBER OF RE-
COVERIES PER DAY EXCEEDS
THE NUMBER OF NEWLY RE-
PORTED CASES THE EPIDEMIC
CAN NOT BE CONSIDERED ON
THE WANE. It is rather surpris-
ing that health service officials
should have lost sight of a fact so
mathematically simple as this; yet
so far their figures are concerned
only with the new calls.
It is naturally true that the epi-
demic can not continue to increase
at the astounding rate of the past
few days, still the number of new
cases yesterday apparently far ex-
ceeded the number of recoveries,
and many persons not seriously ill
have neglected treatment alto-
gether rather than wait in the
lines at the Health Service which
