Emphasizes Growing Need to Sell
the College to Alumni
and Undergraduates.
The district convention of the'
American Alumni council closed
with a luncheon at the Union yes-
terday noon, at which President
Alexander Grant Ruthven was the
guest of honor. T. Hawley Tapping
J. Fred Lawton, '11, one of Michi-
gan's most active alumnus, in a
short address stressed the growing
need of selling the college to both
undergraduates and alumni of the
"Students of today need a great
deal more selling than they used
to," he said, "and consequently
when considering alumni of more
recent years we should realize this
and allow more salesmanship in
alumni work."
Lawton emphasized the point that
20 years ago every student was
heart and soul for his college, but
that today this feeling and loyalty
toward school tradition is lacking
and therefore must be aroused by
active alumni work. He concluded
by saying that bringing the alumni
back to football games is a good
way to sell them what they should
have been sold in school.
President Ruthven on behalf of
the University, welcomed the vari-
ous alumni secretaries attending
the meeting and briefly outlined
the work that the school is doing
in alumni lines.
G. Carl Huber, dean of the
Graduate school and director of
the Michigan Alumni association,
described the job of alumni secret-
ary as an enviable one in that a
person in this position is more
intimately connected with all parts
of a school than anyone outside
of a president. He also labled alum-
ni associations as strictly American
The luncheon and the morning
meeting which preceded it at Stark-
weather hall, Ypsilanti, concluded

pointing to the activities of the

their prososed activities under the

Messages were sent to the 75,000
alumni of the University last night
in a special "Alumni Night" pro-
gram broadcast from the Univers-

Carl Huber, dean of the graduate
school, T. Hawley Tapping, editor
of the Michigan Alumnus, and
Helen M. Gore, chairman of the
Alumnae association.
"Institutions of higher learning
always have had and ever will have
unsolved problems in the general
field of education," said President
Ruthven in his address to the
alumni. He went on to say that the
University had been going through
ap eriod of expansion, and that
during this period many problems
pertinent to the training of youth
had been neglected.
