Reliable information purports
that the senior class of the literary
college has already collected a
greater total of class dues than
was collected eby the class of '29
during the entire spring semester.
The success of this year's dues
campaign is to be attributed to the
adoption by class officials of a new
rule, to the effect that no seniors
who fail to pay the $5 fee will be
permitted to participate .in any of
the traditional class functions, in-
cluding Swing-out and Class Day
That the plan has been success-
ful in inducing seniors to pay class
dues-which next to Community

fund pledges are the hardest thing ,
in the world to collect-is evidenc-
ed conclusively by the present re-
ceipts, which total more than $2,-
000. Furthermore, it is true that
no strenuous objections can be
voiced. Senior class officials can-
not be indicted on grounds of avid
chicanery. It cannot be said that
the plan to enforce payment of
class dues is not just, because a
well-filled treasury is obviously
necessary for the conduct of any
social organization. ..
The senior class is justified in
spending money for the social pur-
pose of creating an espirit de corps
among class members, because the
final impression of the University
which seniors acquire this spring
is the impression which they will
take out into the world as alumni.
If the seniors feel an affection to-
toward the University, they will
eventually be instrumental in cre-
ating a public attitude of interest
as well as respect for the Univer-

a ctiu ae o c a enging every move
of the University. Back in '24 and
'25 when Marion LeRoy Burton was
our president this University ap-
peared to be at the start of a glori-
ous journey to the ultimate in edu-
cation. Under President Burton
this University made wonderful
progress, and the intensive work
that Doctor Burton did in getting
financial appropriations for the
building program, still being car-
Sried out, practically killed him, so
that he was unable to rally from a
serious illness in February, 1925.
Witht he death of Burton and
the change in the governorship of
the State of Michigan from Alex
Groesbeck to Fred Green the en-.
tire stage at Michigan changed.
No longer did the President have
his way, no longer were the stu-
- dents sensibly happy, nor did
Michigantcontinue its upward
climb. After a half-year of an
:acting-presidency under the capa-
ble Dean Alfred H. Lloyd a brand
new man became our highest offi-
cial, Clarence Cook Little. With
Doctor Little's inauguration began
a series of struggles involving the
president himself, the deans, the
faculty, the students, the citizens
of Ann Arbor, and lastly the two
political bodies: the Board of Re-
gents and the Governor and his
While many are willing to admit
that Doctor Little worked some-
what too hurriedly in . putting
through his new ideas it is very
difficult to comprehend why poli-
tics should be more dominant than
education. For Governor Green
and the famed Republican party
'of Michigan, together with the
even more famous Board of Re-
gents, so well characterized by yes-
terday's contributor to this column.
With little or no regard to the edu-
cational benefits of Doctor Little's
plans he was practically forced out
because of political machinery. Dr.
Little himself will point that out
in his new book, "The Awakening
Now we find the situation more
complex than ever before. With
Doctor Little's departure, and with
absolutely no opposition to their
political endeavors the Board of
Regents are going ahead with their
wrecking of a once promising Bur-
ton administration. Less than a
year after the "forced" resignation
of Doctor Little comes the dismis-
sal of the former president's close
friend and supporter, Doctor Hugh
Cabot, as Dean of the' Medcal
School. The most amusing part of
the Cabot affair is that in less than
a month after the former dean's
ousting comes the announcement
that he had been given a medical
advisory post at the Mayo Clinic,
an honor and position far above
that of his university post. As
Michigan rids herself of great men
these same great men become
doubly famous and important.

Convention and Revolt in Poetry,
by John Livingston Lowes
Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, Mass.
Price $2.50
It is just ten years since Profes-
sor Lowes issued his first edition of
this valuable work. The present is,
the eighth edition. Its reissuance
at the present time is extremely
fortunate, with all he to do about
the modern movement in - poetry
cluttering the reviewing periodicals.
The book was first issued when the'
so-called modern movement was
emerging, and Professor Lowes
points'out that even the term
modern poetry is as old as poetry
itself, and this permanence in flux
is the large and humane experi-
ence of poetry-the theme of the

The North Pole of the Winds,
by William Herbert Hobbs. j
G. P. Putnam's Sons, N. Y. C. j
Price $5.00.
A new conception of the polar
regions of the earth has been pre-
sented by Professor William H.:
Hobbs in his latest exploration nar-
rative. Admiral Peary discovered
! the magnetic north pole, but it has
remained for Professor Hobbs to
describe that of the winds, which
he has located in Greenland.
The coniplete air circulation
above the Greenland ice-cap con-
sists of high inward-blowing winds
toward the central region, where
air is slowly settling to the surface
of the ice-cap, from which central!
area it reverses direction and
passes out in all directions. The
Greenland ice-cap is thus the!
northern wind pole of the earth,
which is technically described as
the Greenland glacial anti-cy-
clone," writes Professor Hobbs. He
then goes on to demonstrate how
this theory was proven and tests
were 'carried out with balloon
Although the main object of the
book is the presentation of the new
wind theory and the story of the
three expeditions which Professor
Hobbs led to Greenland, he also!
discusses the possibilities of suc-
cess of a Tranatlantic air route
over Greenland using the Mount
Evans station as a base. Says ex-
plorer Hobbs: "The width of the
single span from coast to coast
across the Atlantic is so great that
for present-day planes all available
loads must be given over to fuel
and crew.
Professor Hobbs also describes
difficulties encountered in making
preparations for the Rockford
fliers, Hassell and Cramer-how
gasoline had to be conveyed sev-
eral hundred miles, a landing field
cleared, and how, to satisfy the
Danish government, the flight had
to be connected with the University
Expedition before permission could
be ob tined 'The Pntr hns n n

Somebody tells me this really

Deny a Fact!.
WHEN nine out of every ten people declare that
White Swan is the best laundry in the county, it's
pretty likely to be a fact.
We've had customers come to us and stick with
us year after year. We've had customers leave us--
and return to stay. We've made customers by the
hundreds in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. One even
sends his things all the way from Battl% Creek to get
White Swan quality laundry service. Instances like
these prove claims to be actual fact. And you simply
cannot deny a fact!

But it is impossible for the sen-
iors to carry their dues-collecting
scheme beyond a judicious extent.
If threat of excommunication from
class social functions induces
prompt payment of dues, all well
and good. It should be under-
stood, however, that failure to pay
