With the passing of William
Howard Taft the nation has lost a
leader whose ideals, citizenship,
and lifelong usefulness were recog-
nized throughout the world as one
of the prime examples of the at-
tributes a public figure should ac-
Regardless of what may be said
for Taft's success as the twenty-
seventh President of the United
States, it has been said that never
once during his long terms of pub-
lie offices did he use his political
power for selfish gain or for mere
personal advantage. Mr. Taft's
honesty and earnest desire for un-
selfish usefulness offers an excel-
lent example for political organi-
zations to follow, and affords a life
program that individuals might
well adopt.,
Mr. Taft was one of the leading
churchmen in the country. He was
connected with the founding of one
of the largest church organizations'
extant today and was a devout
worshiper. As one of the original'
group who inspired the founding
of the Federal Council of Churches
of Christ in America, he brought
into every office the ideals of hon-
esty, helpfulness, cleanness and
The late Chief Justice was one of
America's best examples of citizen-
ship in public office-an example
not too often offered.

To the Editor:

The being made public of the
news of Dr. Hugh Cabot's appoint-'
ment as consulting surgeon at the
Mayo Clinic serves to accentuate a
well known fact - the fact that
through her entire history the Uni-
versity of Michigan has always
sent away her best men, her out-
standing personalities. This rather
habitual occurrence has been due,
in every case, either to the fact
that the Regents lacked the fore-
sight to bring about means for!
keeping them, or, due to their
simpleness, bacxwardness, or nar-

Sunday's paper carried an a.n-
nouncement of another student-
written play contest so it looks as
though we'll have to undergo an-
other epidemic of "City Haul," etc.,
whether we like it or not.
* * *
The basic idea in such a contest
is fine but if the winners take
themselves too seriously they hit
the terra firma of the cruel world
with a terrible crash. In fact, that
goes for any branch of student
activity. I recall a swell drawing
that appeared in Life last year.. A
young gent, recently graduated
from college stood before a desk in
a newspaper office. "Any experi-
ence?" asked the guy behind the
desk. "Well," said the graduate,
"I was editor of my college news-
paper." The guy behind the desk
sighed. "Oh, I'm sorry," he said,
"we got an editor."

stuff for one dance and the left
side takes the floor for the next.
The music is almost continuous, so
nobody misses anything except the
terrible jam that usually charac-
terizes a cafe like Joe's.

Night Editor-FRANK E. COOPER
Compared to most other coun-
tries of the world, the United
States is a nation of law-breakers.
The general disrespect for law
here is baffling to foreigners and
shocking to Americans; yet there
are probably few recognized "good.
citizens" who have not broken the
law with full knowledge that they
were so doing.
This lawlessness, it is shown inj
an article by James Truslow Ad-
ams in last Sunday' New York
Times, is deep-rooted in the tradi-
tion of this country, which was
"cradled in revolt." Throughout
history the right of revolution or
the right to defy authority when
we are not in agreement with it
has been constantly invoked, Ad-
ams says, and we even pass on the
moral soundness of laws by our pri-
vate standards to see whether they
should or should not be obeyed.
It is not to be understood by this
that the Volstead act is the only
law being broken, for crime in the
form of holdups, murders, embez-
zlements, and the rest are daily,
occurrences. Most of our laws are
broken frequently, and the at-
attempted enforcement of more
stringent penalties for unenforce-
able laws cannot help but increase
disrespect, which is simply to court
As Adams points out, the Eight-
eenth Amendment did not make ofj
us a nation of lawbreakers, as we1
were so already because of our
deep-rooted tradition; but it did'
give a staggering blow to that re-{
spect for law which is so absolutelyf
essential to a highly industrialized
civilization. History indicates that
the very Puritanism which brought
prohibition into our Constitution{
will prevent its enforcement be-t
cause of the Puritan doctrine and1
practice of private judgment. t
The United States today is prob-c

rowness of vision, actually forcec
them to leave.
Dr. Moses Gunn, the first profes-
sor of surgery, after many years of
endeavor in attempting to .build
up the School of Medicine, left and
went to Rush Medical College. Both
his immediate successors, Dr,
Greene and Dr. Donald MacLean,
left after only a short period 01
teaching in the school, because op-
portunities were too limited. When
Johns Hopkins Medical School
opened its doors in 1893 it took twc
of Michigans principal professors
-Howell in psysiology, and Abel in
pharmacology, and these two fig-
ures are still outstanding men at
j that school. Prof. McMurrich, of
anatomy, left to go to Toronto, and
his successor, Dr. Streater went to
Carnegie Institute. Abel's succes-
sor, Cushny, left to go to Edin-
burg. Dr. George Dock, former
head of the department of Inter-
nal Medicine, is now at Washing-
ton University.
Dean Cabot has been well known
as a medical educator, he has aided
in acquiring 'a good faculty in his
short stay here, and has endeavor-
ed to raise the calibre of the school
by more careful entrance selection,
and by more personal freedom in
choice of subjects by upper class
students, but, being a teacher, he
discouraged private practices by
members of his faculty, and ex-
pressed himself on his beliefs, and
as a result, has lost his position.
And now it seems to be the object
of the Regents to get in his place
a kindly agreeable soul, who con-
descends to all their moves, like
the man who has been dean of the
literary college so long.
Michigan is a mass production
institution, and the annual turn-
over is continually being increased,
while the quality of the product is
being lessened . . . for how long can
quality, increase when the employ-
ees who do the actual manufactur-
ing become poorer? Of what value
is a four million dollar hospital and
a medical building with four floors
of anatomical laboratories when
the quality of the instruction is
lessened? In order to maintain
the place that she has held for
quite a good many years now.


The School of Music Symphony
Orchestra under Samuel Lockwood
with Dalies Frantz as soloist
gave an interesting concert Sunday
afternoon. The full orchestra still
remains absolutely , unpredictable,
the woodwind and brass sections in
one piece running the whole gamut
from very bady to fairly good mo-
ments. If one's ear is distinctly
aristocratic, the many curious mo-i
ments of muddled sonority quite
absolutely mitigate against any
pleasure. Otherwise, the concert
proves interesting as a fairly lucid
reading of a little known symphony

atric music of Grieg's Sigurd Jor.
