A NEED FOR ADJUSTMENT.
That the college student in gen-
'eral-with specific reference to

edies for maladjustment, particu-
larly during the first two under-
graduate years, which he has not
undertaken to discuss.
It is admitted rather generally
that freshman week and the plan
of designating faculty advisers for
freshmen has not been successful
and has in many ways served to ac- I
centuate the evils it aimed to abol-
ish. It often takes students a year
or even two before they become
thoroughly orientated. One of the
chief causes of this is the cold un-
friendly attitude which Michigan
now presents to the new student.
To do away with this difficulty,
dormitories under the supervision
of men who understand and could
offer personal attention to the
problems of the freshman should
be established, a more carefully
planned course in orientation
should be considered, and a sys-
tem of grouping students accord-
ing to their abilities and interests
(possibly a modification of the
University college plan) should be
effected. In this way, the prob-
lem of maladjustment could be
considerably lessened and the Uni-
versity would find itself on a much
sounder educational foundation.
FAVORABLE CONTACTS.
Relationship with faculty men,
especially concerning the connec-
tion of their respective fields to the
general world of affairs, is a golden
advantage of university life, yet
one seldom attained by the under-
graduates. The occasions for such
gains are, in face of their useful-
ness, exceedingly rare; further-
more, the students display too
much inertia in accepting them
when they are offered.
An opportunity, unique in its
possibilities, toward this end will
be had soon in the open forum
series to be sponsored by the Stu-
dent Christian association. Ad-
dresses are to be given, and speci-
fic questions answered by compe-
tent men on a number of interest-
ing topics: the ethics of law, news-
papers and public morals, the psy-
chology of criminals and the soci-
ological aspects of the modern fam-
ily, with the additional feature
'of "follow-up" discussions of a
more intimate nature to be arrang-
ed with professors of the respec-
tive fields.
With the tendency toward a too
exclusive confinement of the views
of professors regarding the current
general problems within their
fields to the limited number of stu-
dents specializing on the particular
subject, the open forums will help
to fill a startling vacancy in the
schedule of modern education. The
student with his ear to the ground
will take advantage of the chance,
and it is hoped that the response
will be sufficient to warrant the in-
stitutionalizing of what has been
heretofore an Utopian idea.

"GAMBLING"-
A Review by William J. Gorman.
George M. Cohan, the great
American showman, gambles rath-
er desperately in his latest produc-
tion on his own ability as an actor
to make an only so-so melodrama
completely acceptable. It is rather
of a major achievement that he
comes off so well. It came rather
as a surprise to the New York
critics too. They had always en-
thusiastically recognized his show-
manship but rather consistently
tended to minimize his achieve-
ment from the point of view of im-
portance. He was just one of those
figures the theatre welcomes and
needs for its complete heatlh. Out-
sid of that he deserved only the
cAmnation of faint praise from
critics trying to point to ideals for
showmanship to strive for.

'A Study in Undergraduate Ad- o
justment." q-

Whieh

From the sociological standpoint
Professor Angell has made a detail-
ed examination of a representativeE
sample of undergraduates in their
every field of interest. He has
found that there is a close corre-
lation between social adjustment
and the number of extra-curricu-
lar activities; that fraternities help
bring about social adjustment in
their members, but that their in-
fluence on non-members often
causes a definite feeling of infer-
iority; that sex plays an important
part in undergraduate life; that
there is a marked indifference to
religion among the students; and
that good academic adjustment
and a decision relative to a career
seem to be correlated, as are schol-
arship and adjustment to life.
The conclusions Professor Angell
draws from his experiments show
that but one-third of the men and
women composing the undergrad-
uate body are well adapted to life,
and that slightly less than one-
fourth are badly maladjusted, leav-
ing the majority in that indefinite,
intermediate class of the poorly
adjusted.
To remedy the obvious defects of
an educational system such as
Michigan's, Professor Angell sug-
gests that loans and scholarships
will make for academic adjust-
:ment, extra-curricular activities of
a cultural and intellectual nature
will fill a definite need for self-ex-'
pression, and from a social stand-
point, the level of interest of fra-
ternities and sororities should be+
raised and their attitude toward
studies made more favorable. To+

STUDENT DOCILITY.
To the Editor:
I have noticed with unusual in-
terest the letters expressing regret
and indignation over Dr. Cabot's
discharge. There seems to be a1
movement to eject worthwhile men
from the University ever since the
Regents forced Dr. Little to resign.
This should be deplored.
The University of Michigan has
long been known for its excellent
faculty. It now appears that the
University is becoming too small
for such men as Dr. Little, Prof.
Jack, and Dean Cabot. It makes it
difficult for a student to take much
pride in his Alma Mater when suchI
brilliant men as those cited are ex-
cluded from the University.
The docility of the student body
is surprising since many are not at
all reluctant in denouncing the
University's attitude towards these
men of ability when engaged in
discussions on the campus.
