New Education
School Course
Is Announced
Will Consist Of History Of
Education And Study Of
Schools Systems
A new course, open ;o juniors and
seniors, and intended as much for
students not seeking teacher certifi-
cates as for those enrolled in the
School of Education, was announced
in an interview yesterday by Dr. Cal-
vin O. Davis, professor of secondary
education and Secretary of the School
of Education.
Professor Davis stated that it will
be a combination of the two present
introductory courses. It will consist
of the history of education in the
United States, and an intensive study
of the organization of the school sys-
tem, including an analysis of its
problems, personnel, and general
"set up." The course can be taken
by all upperclassmen upon the con-
sent of their advisers, and regular
credit will be given.
Professor Davis explained that pre-
vious to this time only those working
for teacher certificates were permit-
ted to take courses in the School of
Education, but the University has
seen the need of these subjects for
students desiring a complete "liberal"
Professor Davis emphasized that
one of the reasons for our pesent
education "muddle" is the public's
ignorance of the problems of educa-
tion, although as taxpayers they
spend over two billion dollars annu-
ally for the upkeep of the schools.
Professor Davis added that regard-
less of a person's profession he may
sometime become a member of a
board of education or, even if he does
not receive this position, as a con-
scientious citizen he must be fully ac-
quainted with the education sys-
Professor Davis pointed out that
there would be no attempt to influ-
ence the student to become a teach-
er, and the course will give the stu-
dent who is desirous of becoming an
instructor an opportunity to change
his mind and yet not lose any credits.
R.O.T.C. Men Will
Visit Army Posts
Ninety-five men from the Univer-
sity's R.O.T.C. unit will leave onJune
17 for the various army posts where
they will receive practical instruction
in the drills and maneuvers which
they have studied throughout courses
at the University.
The men, all of whom have com-
pleted at least three years of theoret-
ical work, will stay at the summer
camps for six week periods in prep-
aration for receiving their commis-
sions as second-lieutenants in the Re-
serve Corps, next year.
During these summer training pe-
riods the practical application of army
tactics, which cannot be adequately
instructed in the classroom at the
University, are taught, emphasis being
placed on firing and army maneuvers.

in the School of Music, will present
seven of her students in a recital at

hunt Speaks
Aout Success
To Engineers
"A successful engineering career is
based on health, assembling of tech-
nical knowledge, luck, and the ability
to associate and co-operate with
people," according to Ormond E.
Hunt, vice-president of the General
Motors Corporation, and speaker at
the Tung Oil Banquet, held by Sigma
Rho Tau, Engineer Stump Speakers'
Society Thursday.
Mr. Hunt believes the greatest as-
set to an engineer, besides his tech-
nical knowledge, is the ability to as-
sociate with people. The subject of
Mr. Hunt's talk was "Raw Stuff and
Rivets." He likened an engineer's ca-
reer to a building structure, the tech-
nical knowledge acquired in college
being the raw mater' ls used in the
building, the rivets being the associa-
tions and friends needed to hold the
structure together, and luck was the
ornamental decorations of the struc-
To bring home his points, the
speaker gave a number of examples
from his own life, and as Toastmaster
Prof. F. N. Menefee stated the only
thing that ever stumped Mr. Hunt
was the question of a young lady
who asked him, "When the engine of
a car becomes hot are the gears
Mr. Hunt graduated from the Uni-
versity of Michigan in 1907 and has
also received an honorary degree from
here. At the close of the banquet Mr.
Hunt was elected into the membership
of Sigma Rho Tau.

These fortunate individuals who in
shortly more than three weeks will
constitute the University graduation
class can thank their great numbers
for the relatively simple preparation
they have to make for the cerembny,
for in days gone by, when the class
consisted of a mere handful of stu-
dents, the candidates had to round pff
their four years of grind by delivering
to their proud parents and sweet-
hearts a lengthy oration.
Eleven students hold the honor of
being Michigan's first graduates, re-
ceiving their diplomas on August 6,
1845, nearly a century ago. No room
in the then modest University struc-
tures was large enough to accommo-
date the audience, so the ceremony
was held in the Presbyterian Church.
The carefully prepared orations were
spiritedly delivered by each member
of the class, poems being read by two
of them to provide variety and color
to the program.
Even as late as 1854 all the can-
didates were presented in speeches,
the group being by then so large that
it was necessary to have both morn-
ing and afternoon sessions in order
that everyone might speak. In 1861,
however, the increasingly large num-
ber of graduates made it necessary
to choose by lot a few of their number
whose remarks were to be representa-
tive of the whole class.

were individually informed that they
were among the other ten.
From earliest times commencement
season has been one of rejoicing and
festivities, and, as might be expected,
this at times developed into excesses.
At Harvard, where the first com-
mencement in America was held in
1642, sumptuary laws were passed to
curb the preparation and use of "plum
cake, roast meat, pie, and liquor."
This did not check the disorder, how-
ever, so an attempt was made to keep
the exact day of the exercises secret,
which, it turned out, rather served to
lengthen the period of rejoicing,
