Night. Editor- WAITER WILDS
Last Saturday's alumni meetings
contributed several. noteworthy in-
crements toward furthering 'the
policy of eliciting better informed
and more productive support of
University projects .by Michigan
graduates, which President Ruth-
ven, in support of the Alumni as-
sociation, has resurrected from
Dr. Burton's administration. At
the time of the latter's death, there
was a project on his desk involving
the selection of a large nationa]
alumni advisory committee, with
its own organization, which should
serve the twin functions of keep-
ing the graduate body informed o
the University's policies, problems
and actions and of further defin-
ing and impregnating points of
contact between alumni and in-
The first of these purposes, thus
derived, after a period of quiet ma-
turation during the Little regime
reached fruition as a consequence
of the meetings held last week end
In the neighborhood of 125 mem-
bers of the elite in Michigan's
alumni body participated in discus-
sions centering around the them
of the conference, "Know Michigar
Better." Deans and members o:
the teaching staffs of many Uni-
versity departments addressed the
alumni; inspection tours made
graphic these descriptions, and
half-forgotten impressions of the
institution were retouched.
The effects of such a procedure
are multifarious. In virtually ever
recent indictment against the pre-
tentions to commercialism anc
bigotry prevalent in intercollegiate
affairs, the alumni figure as causa-
tive factors even more than for-
merly. It is a highly meritorious
undertaking, therefore, to divert
alumni attentions from such de-
vices to the serious business of im-
Droving academic excellence.

CARRY ON, man; never say die, don't
give up the ship, and all that sort
of thing. Somewhere the right pipe and
the right tobacco are waiting-just for
you. Carry on! Find 'em!
The trick is to find both-to find,
for instance, the pipe with just the
shape and weight, just the balance and
size and "grip" that suit you. No easy
job-but it's your job, and the world
is full of pipes.
The tobacco problem is easier, for we
can help you there, not only with the
suggestion that Edgeworth very prob-
ably is the tobacco you are looking for,
but also with some Edgeworth. The
Edgeworth will smoke most benignly in
your tentative pipe, and it will smoke
there several times. We mean every
word: several good heaping pipefuls of
Edgeworth, a generous packet of abso-
lutely genuine Edgeworth, all free and
for nothing if you'd like to try it. Done?

To the Editor:
How much longer must-the Mich-
igan student--body put up with the
Shylock proclivities of the local,
book stores? For years we havej
been forced to buy text books from{
dealers whose standards of value
areas variable as the wind velocity.1
For years we have been forced to
pay from five to -twenty or more!
dollars a semester for books whose
turn-in value averages half or less
the new value, even if the book is
as good as new.
Not long ago I decided to try
an experiment to test my theory
that local dealers base their stan-
dards of value on the weather and
the current condition of the diges-
tive tract of the salesman, and I
found out that my suspicions were
justified. I purchased a. new four
dollar book in one store and took.
it over to a neighboring store where
I asked the cash value of the book.
The salesman glanced at the title,
flipped through the pages, viewed
the colume from three different
angles, and decided it was worLh
only two dollars, because "the au-
thor is considering a revision."
The author, I hasten to add, re-
cently stated that he hasn't had
time to get at the revision.
It has often been suggested that
the University or the Union main-
tain a book store for the conven-
ience of students. Why the delay?
The live threat of such a plan
would raise a squawk from book
purveyors, to be sure, but they
haven't had anything to squawk
about for years. Seemingly they
do not appreciate the fact that their'
bread and butter money has comeE

There is a lot of adventure in the
editor's day's work sometimes.
For example, this incident at a
Southern coal mine where con-
vict labor was then employed ex-
clusively. A McGraw-Hill editor
had gone down the shaft to get a
story, to investigate some new
processes that were being used.
McGraw-Hill editors are not out
seeking thrills. Their job is to
cover the field, to know what is
annfr n to. beswhesre thinos are

changing picture of modern in-
dustry and business.
That is why McGraw-Hill Publi-
cations are so vital to the business
and industrial world today. That
is why they are playing such an
important part in the nation's in-
dustrial development.
You who are about to step-out
into industry should make it your
business to learn what industry's
present leaders are doing and
