DUST OFF THE STANDARDS.
The familiar educational contro-
versy between mortar and men as
prime needs of the university seems
not only abated, but definitely
tucked away. President Ruthven,
in what purported itself to be aE
glimpse into the Michigan of the
future, recently declared that since,
the major building requirements
were cared for, first attention
would henceforth be given to edu-
cational problems, methods of in-
struction, curriculum revisions and
matters of personnel.
It seems always to have been a
difficult task for university admin-
istrators to ignore the allurements
of surrounding themselves and
their charges with more Gothic
and ivy. The less corporeal enter-
prises of improving the lot of fac-
ulty and students *have too often
been motivated rather by pressure
of exigencies than by pursuit of an
academic ideal. There is little'
prophylactic in spasmodic doses of
isolated treatment for the cure of
chronic educational ailments.
Michigan's plight, however, if the
several incipient improvements
now begun are carried to fruition,
seems on the point of alleviation.
When Dr. Ruthven was made Pres-
ident last fall, he fell heir to a cur-
iously confounded situation in the
administrative affairs of the Uni-
versity. Many building projectsI
left pending since President Bur-
ton's untimely death coupled with
the well-intentioned but poorly and!
half executed educational plans of
Dr. Little produced inestimably
great hodge-podge. While Presi-
dent Ruthven has been concerned
with the necessary house-cleaning,
professors' salaries, reforms in in-
struction and curricula and ad-
missions problems have been shelv-
ed and allowed to receive what
benefits they could from the*"rest

ALAS AND ALACK.
(From the New York World)
When Vassar College girls come
to town and give a concert in
which Palestrina and Bach are
sung in Latin, the height of some-
thing or other has been reached,
and it is time to call a halt. The
thing had its beginning, as we re-
call, when Dr. Archibald T. Davi-
son took charge of the Harvard
Glee Club about ten years ago and
immediately began to turn things
upside down. Instead of teaching
the songs that college glee clubs
had sung for years, he put the boys
on Bach, Mozart, Handel, Brahms
and the two Scarlattis, and before
long the campus was reverberating
to strange Latin and still stranger
polyphony.
Oddly enough, it worked. The
boys liked it, and for the first time
the club had a waiting list, instead
of having to send out a bush-
whacker to round up a quorum for
rehearsals; the public liked it, and,
instead of being sparsely filled with
loyal old grads, the houses were
crowded, and often sold out. Itj
was but a few years, of course, be-,
fore most colleges had followed
suit, even Vassar. But alas and
alack. All the old spirit has de-
parted from college singing; the
glee clubs are indistinguishableI

IT is a tribute to the investment business
that so large a part of those entering it
do so at the suggestion of older and more
experienced heads. It is no less significant
that an increasing number of alert, active-
minded college men are choosing this field
as a result of their own initiative.
Both are as they should be. When a
young man enters a business or profession,
he makes an important investment of his
time and energies. Those early years may
give him the momentum to carry him
through a successful career. If, on the other
hand, he wakes up after several years to
the fact that he has chosen a business that

does not fit, or one that has limited oppor-
tunities, he must begin all over again-
and from a standing start.
It will pay you to know as much about
different occupations as possible. Before
you go out to find your first position, know
what different occupations require and
what they offer. Among others, investigate
the investment business as a possible career.
We shall be glad to help you. Based on
our extensive experience in the under-
writing and distribution of sound bonds
for investment, we have prepared a book-
let of special interest to college men, called
Tle Bond Business. Write for a copy.
