By George A. Stauter
The University as an institu-
tion is "rapidly becoming the
brain of society" and, as such,
should never fail in adjusting and
directing the activities of society
through any "narrow conception
of its sphere =of usefulness." Pre-
sident Ruthven told members of

President Ruthven took as the
title of his thesis the "super-uni-

plained, to direct attention to the
evolutionary processes now in these
institutions. The scope and func-

undergoing attempted redefinition.

the "super-university's" functions,

Today; Car Thought to Be-
Further examination of the
"little brown jug," practically
proved the authenticity of the
trophy. Phil Pack of the Ath-
letic association after a minute
examination of the jug and a
comparison with old photo-
graphs, early this morning stat-
ed that he was becoming more
and more convinced that the
jug was the original.
Apparently frightened by the:
knowledge that their secret posses-
sion of the coveted little brown jug
had leaked out, the organization or
individuals behind the theft of the
jug three weeks ago ridded them-
selves of the fateful Minnesota-
Michigan trophy last night by
dropping it from a car near the
Tuomy Hills gas station at the east
edge of town.
Four men in a large Cadillac
touring car pulled up at the side of
Washtenaw road at about 7:15
o'clock last night and rolled the old
brown water jug out on the ground
at the point where the Jacksi
cut-off leaves Washtenaw r o a d.

tendant at the station, believing
the car was seeking directions, came

The four individuals all had hats
pulled down over their eyes and
the licenses of the machine were
.daubed with mud to prevent recog-
nition, according to Smith's testi-
mony. Because of this he was un-
able to identify either the car or
its occupants. However, it is strong-
ly suspected by many that the li-
censes were from Minnesota as

for following the controversies of
educators and laymen.
Universities proiaily never will
conform to a single pattern, he
said. "Many of the differences in
policies and practice depend just
now upon the point of view adopted
upon the importance and place of
extra-mural actiyities, including
extension work, adult education,
and service. No study of universi-
ties can provide dependable results
which' ignores the resources of the
Embraces All Fields.
He deplored as "futile" the at-
tempts' to prove that universities
should exist for "the sole purpose
of training scholars or of providing
a cultural background for others."
In reply to the criticism that uni-
versities should not offer vocational
training in every necessary field of
endeavor, President Ruthven said
this was "impracticable."
"One may be excused for smiling
at the inclusion of dress-making
and canoeing in a university curri-
culum, but logically he cannot ob-
ject to departments of forestry,
pharmacy, journalism, and busi-
ness administration and at the
same time admit the traditional
schools of law and medicine. Sub-
jects of instruction proper to the
unversity are those which provide
a strict and regular mental and
moral training comprehending the
communication ofknowledge, the
cultivation of manners, and the'
regulation of practice."
Commenting on another of the
"super-university's" functions, in-
tra-mural and extra-mural instruc-
tion, the President said that by

PUZZLED PROM COMMITTEE DECIDES
TO LET EVERYBODY VOTE FOR MUSIC
The Soph Prom committee is
having quite a time with its music
for the dance, not that the music
has been selected yet, but that's
just the trouble.
The.-committee believes in giving
the public what it wants, or so one
is led to believe by the innovation
of an entirely new scheme for the
selection of a band for the event.
The idea, germinating in the
mind of some sophomore commit-
teeman, and rapidly finding favor
with other members of the group,
was to pick out four orchestras and
let everyone who contemplates at-

vote for the candidates, now listed
as Husk O'Hare, Fletcher Hender-

mentioned Mr. McKinney.
Boxes for the straw vote are to be
located in the Engineering arch and

library, and will be open to voters
between the hours of nine and
