THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Prof. Bonner Delivers
Address at Graduation
Criticism of uninformed official-
dom, particularly in American col-
leges whose "influence is often exert-
ed to make the University safe for
mediocrity" was the keynote of the
third mid-winter wartime Gradua-
tion Exercises address Feb. 24 de-
livered by Prof. Campbell Bonner.
In a speech entitled "Ask the Men
Who Know," Prof. Bonner urged
approximately 340 graduates "to
scrutinize and call in question the
fitness of the, aspirant" for public
office. He decried "the ancient fal-
lacy, competent in one thing, there-
fore competent in others" and warn-
ed the graduates to "seek knowledge
where true knowledge is to be found,
and accept nothing else in its place."
Prof. Bonner, former chairman of,
the Greek department, began his
year's retirement fuflough with the
completion of the address.
Americans are too prone to accept
leaders in one field as leaders in all,
Prof. Banner said, but fortunately
many of these prodigies of technical
accomplishment are modest men, well'
aware that their competency has
"Unfortunately, the American pub-
lic does all it can to destroy that
modesty . . . we assume that a man
who has made a great thing of his
business . . . is worth listening to, no
matter what he talks about."
In the University, Prof. Bonner,
stated, technical phases of adminis-
tration need specialized direction but
too frequently the officials "carry
into their work as directors, secre-
taries or bureau heads the idea. that
they too are educators."
Prof. Bonner stressed that these
non-educational officials be restrain-j
ed from educational policy-making.
How serious the danger of their in-
terference was, he said, was indi-
cated by the "recent unhappy "ex-
periences of certain universities." j
The graduation address was pre-
ceded by an Invocation given by Rev.
William P. Lemon, who closed the
exercises with the Benediction. Pres-
ident Alexander G. Ruthven presided
at the ceremonies.
Capt. Woodson V. Michaux, Naval
commandant here, presented com-
missions to 27 graduating members
of the NROTC unit on campus.
Of the 340 graduates receiving di-
plomas, 139 were members of the
Literary College, 36 were engineers
and 18 were graduate students.

-Dr. Margaret Bell, Physician, Health

quirement stated that "the student
'who is overloaded with work is not
only subject to current infections
going around but it has been found
that overdoing during college years
is an important factor in increasing
the sickness rate of women which is
always higher than men. More im-
portant still, overworking increases
incapacitation of women in the age
groups 38 to 55."
Working women students are asked
to get in touch with the Office of
the Dean of Women where they will
be interviewed by Mrs. Bromage.
