Influence on Career of Nation
by Small Group Described
in Professor's Talk.
"The pattern of a country's career
is set by the small group of higher
minds," said Prof. E. M. East, of
Harvard University, speaking here
yesterday on "Heredity and Hum an
"No man is likely to attain emi-
nence without high innate abil-
ity," Professor East remarked.
"Since ability is explained princi-
pally through heredity, the geneti-
cist has a novel approach to sociol-
ogy that is founded on a sound
scientific basis," he pointed out.
The fundamental characteristics
of the individual are determined by
heredity, though proper heredity
and proper environment are both
necessary to the growth of a genius,
Professor East said. Recognition oft
the facts known to genetic science(
would consequently alter our socialc
attitudes in many cases.
"We must relinquish the old
Jeffersonian philosophy," he said.
Equality of individuals is not real;
and belief in it brings such falla-
cies as teaching all school children
iccording to the same plan. "ItI
would be sounder policy," he said,
'to give a child all he can assimi-
late of the kind of education he
3 Psychiatric clinics, already used
in connection with some criminal
courts, should be expanded to ar
wider range, Professor East said.
They could conduct regular exam-2
inations of children, and would bec
aids in fitting people into proper(
occupations, as well as in detecting1
dangerous insanity.
State marriage laws are in at
chaotic condition, and divorce laws1
even more so, he pointed out. Modi-
fication of immigration laws to
raise the standard of immigrants
1 by intelligence testingdis also an
important need, he said.

The Union's past fiscal year was
most satisfactory, says Prof. Evans
Holbrook, '93, '95, '00L, financial
secretary of theUnion, in the cur-
rent issue of the Alumnus. The
figures prepared by the official au-
ditors show a profit of $4,148.35 for
the 12 month period, as compared
to a loss of $250.61 for the preced-
ing year.
"But the most satisfying feature
of the report," he says, "is the hope
for the wiping out of the indebted-
ness which has been the bugbear of
the Union's existence. Only a few
years ago this Michigan student
club, the pride of undergraduates
and alumnus alike, owed almost
half a million dollars. Steadily this
am :unt has been whittled down."
Figures revealed last August that
the mortgage had been cut from
$200,000 to $50,000. Since then the
amount has been reduced to $20,-
000. Current notes payable repre-
sent $34,000 more, and the state
war board loan now stands at $52,-
193.33, with accrued interest of
"The current notes are practically
the cost of the additions made dur-
ing the past summer in the student
offices and the cafeteria," writes
Professor Holbrook. He explains
that the loan from the state war
board was contracted in 1917-18 in
order to rush the Union to comple-
tion so that it might be available
for the S A T C.
Professor Holbrook points out
that during the past year the
Union paid student employees a
total of $50.301.47. Of this total,
$23,000, was paid back by students
in payment for meals.

With the mammoth
show in New York, the

first of the

decorators and electricians are
about to begin their annual job
of converting the huge building
into a setting worthy of the two
million dollars worth of cars and
equipment to be exhibited.
Jan. 21 will be known as Michi-
gan day at the show. On that day,
the Michigan Automotive Trade
association, representing the retail
automobile trade of the state, will
hold its eleventh annual convention
at the Book-Cadillac hotel with
Governor Wilbur M. Brucker as the
principal speaker at the banquet of
the state dealers that night. The
tradesmen will also be addressed
by Judge Alfred J. Murphy, of the
third judicial district, Frank D.
Fitzgerald, secretary of state, and
Mayor Frank Murphy of Detroit.
