to reiterate Dr. Ruthven's assertion
that the modern collegiate world
IS de-emphasizing athletics, and
huge sport programs.
Many of the opponents of the
Ruthven plan say that it is highly
impractical. They ask, "Who built
t h e Intramural building? What
funds were used and from whatl
sources will they continue to comej
for its support?" The answer is
obviously-intercollegiate athletics.
But that was not all that Dr. Ruth-
ven said when he startled the edu-
cational world with his de-empha-
sization policy. We believe that he
meant that we are now spending'
far too much of our time and
money on the grand display of
football games, basketball contests.
track meets, rather than remem-
bering why we came to school in
the first place. The fact remains,
over and above the practical side
of the argument, that athletics DO
get too much play as intercollegiate
competition. Just because North-
western beats Chicago is no sign
that Northwestern is the better
university, and yet such is the rep-
utation which inevitably springs u
as a result of over-estimated, over-
publicized athletic contests.
In the face of the Loyola an6
Purdue actions, we believe that Dr.
Ruthven is not altogether wrong
in his theory about over-emphasiz-
ing athletics. It took a great dea?
of courage to make a statemenw
like the one he delivered before the
recent educators' meeting, especial-
ly when one considers Michigan',
past athletic records and the em-
phasis which has been placed hers
during the past few years on sport
programs deluxe. No amount of
scoffing by athletic boards or of-
ficials in charge of the intercolle-
giate orgies of the past can detrac
from Dr. Ruthven's main point-
colleges are getting tired of inter-
collegiate competition. They pre-

To Insure the Crippled Children a Merry Christmas



It is fitting that the friends of
Michigan should know that the
death of Lucy Elliott means to the
University the loss of one of its
most loyal and distinguished grad-
uates. There is no alumna who
has more actively contributed to
the life of her alma mater, not only
by her leadership in her chosen
profession--that of education, but
by her active interest in the' wel-
fare of the University, especially
in that of its women.
The alumnae of Michigan have
taken special pride in her as the
only woman to hold the position of
principal in one of the large inter-
mediate schools of the Detroit
school system. In recent years,
she had won not only local but
state and national recognition.
She has given herself in unsel-
fish devotion to all her many in-
terests, a devotion which has been
equalled only by her remarkable
capacity for personal friendships.
To her many friends, to her Uni-
versity and to the profession of
education, her loss is irreparable.
Alice C. Lloyd.
Last week's announcement that
Loyola University of Chicago will
not carry an intercollegiate foot-
ball schedule in 1931 and possibly
never again reiterates Dr. Ruth-
ven's stand on the de-emphasizing
of intercollegiate athletics by mod-
ern educational institutions. Loyo-
la dropped her grid schedule when
lack of funds, insufficient inter-
est, and poor returns made the re-
cent season one of the most un-
profitable in history.
Purdue recently dropped every
major and minor sport but basket-
ball and football from a very ex-
tensive athletic program because
its 1930 season on the gridiron was
a financial flop. Intramural activ-
ity has been more than just a mere
side issue in this new policy.
Following Dr. Ruthven's recent
statement a storm of criticism
flooded the state's press, and even
blew in from national newspapers.
There were many more against the

The complaint has often been
made about the literary college
that students dissipate their inter-
est and energy over a vast variety
of courses and gain only a super-
ficial knowledge in any one field.
When several seniors were asked
what courses that they pursued in
their sophomore year, it was inter-
esting to note the amount of time
and concentration required for
them to recall merely the names of
the studies that they took. A grad-
uate asked the same question was
able to name about a dozen courses}
out of his whole college career.
This being the case, it seems evi-
dent that a single three or four
hour course in the literary college
makes a rather few number of
wrinkles in the undergraduate's in-
telligence. He carries away from
the university barely a conversa-
tional knowledge of any of the
great sciences or literatures that
are announced in the Michigan
The cure for this situation seems
too easy to require mention. We
have an adequate faculty and a
complete stock of physical equip-
ment. The only thing necessary, it
seems to us, is a reorganization of
the courses offered. This process
-ould take place gradually so that
no disrupting break with the past
would cause confusion or ineffi-
The substance of the change'
would be that a student, prefer-
ably in the upper classes, could
spend an entire semester upon two
or perhaps one subject. This could
be done by selecting a few courses
that were of general interest and
recognized value and allowing the
departments where these were
taught to offer courses that netted
twelve or fifteen hours credit. The
change is of such a nature that
the experiment could be tried out
in a small way at first until its
value was proved.
One opposing this view might
venture the point that what has
been described is much like the
system that prevails in the grad-
uate school, and that students at
the immature age of undergraduate
juniors and seniors should not be
asked to narrow their field of inter-
est to one or two subjects a sem-
In answer to this it can be saidl
that the student at the beginning
of his junior year, having had dur-
ing his first two years sixteen dif-
ferent glimpses of a possible life-
long interest, could at this time
limit his scope of interest to four
or six subjects for his last two years

The editor of Chem and Met investigated the smoldering
ruins. His report was not of the "whitewashing" type. It
boldly set forth the facts-disclosed the lack of protective
measures-placed the blame directly where it belonged. And,
all through the bitter controversy which followed, this editor
held his ground-didn't retract one word of the truth.
The consequence? Fromthat time forth, the Government has
faithfully embodied, in all arsenals constructed, those rec-
ommendations for safety and protection which were stressed
in this McGraw-Hill journal.
McGraw-Hill editors, first of all, must dig out the truth ;
then through every opposition, stick to their guns. This is
one big reason why so many of the nation's lcaders turn to
these journals for news on industry's doings. This, too, is
one big reason why you should read the McGraw-Hill paper
