of quietly working toward an im-
provement of methods, without
precipitate or drastic change, to
look askance and even resent the
action of a more radical faculty.
But if Chicago's action is radical,
it is also well-considered and based
upon the researches of some years
duration. The chief lesson for
Michigan, at which virtually all of]
the ideas set forth in the Chicago'
project, is the example of specific
and consumate action. Perhaps
this is the difference between those
who rely upon the trial and error
method of accomplishment and
those who survey a slow-moving
evolutionary progression.
AN INTERNATIONAL hOUSE
The Student Christian associa-
tion's recent proposal to make of
Lane hall an international house is
an action warmly to be commend-
ed. As a solution for one of the
campus' acute, thought not always
apparent, problems it stands out in
clean-cut relief from the muddle of
dilitory activities with which this
organization has burdened itself
and the campus for some years.
The plan is to reconstruct Lane
hall, enlarging the dormitory space
and replanning the present foyer
and recreation rooms to conform
more nearly with the needs of the
foreign students. Engineers are at
present testing the p o t e n t i a 1
strength of the building and mak-
ing estimates of the project's cost.
The proposal has the active support
of the administration and in fact
precludes a need for any official
action toward making similr pro-
visions elsewhere.
Through the country and the
world, Michigan has been of high
repute for its cosmopolitanism and
encouragement to foreign students.
This move is definitely toward the
working out of the ideals of prac-
tical internationalism. In harmony
with fellow students from fifty na-
tions, a dweller in this house could
well lay claim to the title, Citizen
of the World.
Following the success of similar
projects at Columbia and at the
University of California, we earn-
estly hope that this enterprise will
be completely realized for the ad-
vancement of a more tolerant and
liberal campus spirit toward inter-
national amity.

It looms up large in their lives

The tcecp"IIonc has a big place in the daily lives
of most people today, but its place will be even
bigger tomorrow.
Its importance has been fostered by the work
of men in all phases of the telephone business
and no little part has been taken by those en-
gaged in selling. They have helped to effect
an increase of more than three and a half mil-

lion Bell telephones in the last five years. In
the same period they have been instrumental
in making the public realize more completely
the telephone's usefulness. Result: an in-
crease from 49,000,000 calls per day to
65,000,000.
For men with a leaning toward sales pro-
motion, the opportunity is Mtre!
