study in the University should
never be measured by the number
of students attracted to it," said
Prof. A. E. R. Boak, of the history
department, addressing the initia-
tion banquet of Phi Kappa Phi
held last night at the Union, when
38 senior students in the various
schools and colleges of the Univer-
sity were' initiated into member-
ship in the senior honorary schol-
astic society.,
"It must be rnemmbered that
knowledge should be taught at a
University for its own sake," Pro)
fessor Boak contined: "One of the
chief faults of American universi-
ties of today is that their admin'-
istrative officers are influenced to
much by materialistic considera-
tlons ,in the planning of curricula."
Scores Focs of Learning.
Although the love of learning is
more widespread now than ever be-
fore in the history of the civilized
world, nevertheless that love does
not. park the true spirit of the
present age, Professor Boak aver-
red .He said that the two chief foes
of learning are materialism and
mediocrity. The latter he charac- i
terized as "a very insidious foe to
the loveof learning, one which de-
rides the members of honorary so-
cieties as being mere acadmic
grinds-an accusation which' they
can 4i pruve by mere reference to
statisile howing the future suc-
ce: of persons who are honor stu-..
dents In college"
"Tiere Is only one true love of
learning," Professor Boak contin-
ued. "The two branches of it, the
mastery of accumulated knowledge
and consequent contributions to
the store of knowledge, are but two
manifestations of a single spirit.

Farm on Bank o Huron River
Is Purchased for New
Building Project.
Shirley Smith Makes Purchase;
Prof. Curtiss Approves
of Location.
First steps toward the comple-
tion of its plans for a new astro-
nomical observatory were taken by
the University yesterday through
the purchase of-a 200 acre farm.
The site, which was bought from
Dr. W. W. Newcombe, lies along the
left bank of the Huron river be-
tween Dexter and Pinckney.
The purchase, which wasmade
by Shirley W. Smith, secretary and
business manager of the University,
has the approval of Prof. Ralph H.
Curtiss, director of the Astronomi-
cal observatories, and is believed
to be a splendid location for the
purposes. It also had the approval
of the late Prof. William J. Hussey,
whom Professor Curtiss succeeded
in the astronomy department. "It
includes a commanding elevation,
close to, but not directly on a main
highway, and is entirely removed
from smoke, vibration, city lights,
and other conditions which have in
recent years continued in increas-
ing degree to make modern astro-
nomical study impossible in the
present observatory at the corner
of Ann and Observatory streets in
Ann Arbor," said Mr. Smith.
Will Fill Vital Place.
In placing the requirements of
the University before the last ses-
sion of the legalt u, time Regeuts
cited the needs of the obsrvatory
first, "because they are so vital, be-
cause they have been neglected so
long, and because the observatory
since its founding in 1854, just 75
years ago, has deserved so well of
the University and the tate."
Architects' plans have already
been drawn for an observatory de-
signed to house a 75 inch reflecting
telescope and which will provide
accommodations for all the re-
quirements of modern astronomical
Present Site Bad.
There have been many objections
to the present site and equipment
of the observatory. As the report
states, "it is wholly impos;ibl to
carry, in the present observatory,
scientifie work meeting noden
standards aid upholding the past
reputation of' Michigan's as trono
mers because of two factors, lack
of facilities and location. The pres-
ent telescope has been a good one
in its day, but is now greatly out-
distanced by the modern instru-
ments at Harvard, Mt. Wilson, Ohio
Wesleyan, and Victoria, B. C. The
75 inch reflector which is planned,
however, would be the second in
size in the country. The other ob-
stacle is the most serious and one
that can be overcome in only one
way, by mroving the observatory to
a new location outside the city of
Ann Arbor. The present building is
now surrounded by the University
hospital and other structures of the
University and the city; smoke by
day and the city lights by night fa-

tally hamper accurate observation,
and the jar caused by nearby pass-
ing trains and street traffic puts
