Full Power To Reject Any
Student Pointed Out In
The University is not required to
accept any high school graduate who
applies for admission and may ask
a previously enrolled student notkto
re-register despite the fact that his
scholastic standing is satisfactory,
President Ruthven stated recently
in his annual report to the Board
"Without any quesuon 1e Regents
have full power to prescribe the
entrance requirements," President
Ruthven emphasized. "In addition
they have the moral responsibility
of not wasting State funds in at-
tempts to educate those who in the
best judgment of the officials are
unfitted or unwilling to take full ad-
vantage of the opportunities provided
by the State.
"The University authorities are
both privileged and morally bound
to use every known device to limit
attendance to honest, sincere, and
ambitious, as well as scholastically
trained, young men and women."
The President pointed out that
because of the rapid growth of the
higher educational institutions it has
been the practice to regulate admis-
sions on scholastic records. "It should
be possible now to limit attendance
to those capable of continuing their
mental and moral growth," the Pres-
ident stated. "It is recommended
that as rapidly as possible the per-
sonal interview, aptitude tests, and
psychological examinations be util-
ized as methods of selecting students
and that results be balanced with
the scholastic record."
Attendance at the University in
any one year does not ensure a stu-
dent's being admitted in future years,
the President continued, and "it is to
be understood that each year the
students are invited to return who
are not requested not to reregister."
Interest in the University adminis-
tration's power to reject students for
other than academic shortcomings
was heightened this year when four
members of the former National Stu-
dent League were asked not to return
to the University because, it was
charged, they had "interfered with
the work of their fellow students."
The President's report was released
Jan. 4 in the Quarterly number of
the Michigan Alumnus. The reports
of the deans of the various colleges
and certain other administrative
heads will be released in the near

filled with variations of the English
language-but it never does bring
out the traveling salesman strain of
jokes in Indians as it does in some
people. Conversation remains per-
fectly fit for the ladies up until the
last, perhaps because it is the ladies
who do last the longest.
If, in the midst of all this noise
of music and babbling tongues, your
partner in conversation or the dance
passes out in the middle of a sen-
tence, do notybe disturbed. The others
help to carry him up to the bed in
the loft, and in half an hour he is
downstairs again, heping himself
to the mash. Having only an ac-
quaintance of a few hundred years
with it, the Indians do not seem to
hold their liquor as well as those
from whom they learned it, but they
are generally good-natured under its
The men gather and carry out the
stove which was in the middle of the
room, the head man of the tribe
fetches thehviolin, a neighbor sets
himself at the melodion, and music
sets in. An old squaw takes the cen-
ter of the floor and scatters the dif-
fidence of the young bucks with her
best Astaire. For hours, the group
continue their dance, a modification
of the square dance, while under the
light of the oil lamp, the old man
who never took music lessons, keeps
his amazingly nimble fingers going on
those repetitive strains.
At sun-up the last of the dancers
falls asleep. Everywhere in the room,
and in the snow outside, the dancers
lay sleeping throughout New Years'
Day. Many of the Indians drive cars,
ramshackle vehicles of ancient vint-
age. In the roadway, their tracks
form a trail which weaves in and
outmand disappears in the distance.
