FORMER GATE POST:
Engineers Still Uphold
Cooley Cane Tradition
By BOB APPLE
Among the old and traditional
relics still in use at the Univer-
sity is a famous red cedar staff
known as the "Cooley Cane."
Steeped in tradition, the cane's
history dates back to 1898 when
studentssawthe last of an ornate
wooden fence which surrounded
the campus. The fence, which con-
tained a gate composed of posts
placed in staggered formation, in
earlier years protected the campus
from the wandering cows of agrar-

non-profit educational projct of
the Jewish Agency for Palestine,
is offering a seven week vacation
in Israel this summer for any Uni-
Further information may be ob-
tained at the Hillel office, 1429
Hill St. All applications for the
trip must be turned in by May 29.
Tradition has it that this gate
was also the battle ground for
sophomores on the inside who tried
to keep freshmen from entering
BUT IN 1898 the University de-
cided that room was needed for
expansion and, since meandeiing
bovines were no longer common,
the posts would have come down.
There were, however, a few
engineering students who held
an affection for the gate posts
and were determined to salvage
them by some means or other.
It was not until about 12 years
ago that the person responsible for
the posts' new history came to the
WHEN THE cane made its an-
nual appearance at the engineers'
"Tung Oil Banquet," Rembert
Jones, a local resident, recognized
it as one of the staffs he had made
out of the old gate posts.
He recalled that when the gate
was being torn down, he pulled
up two of the posts that were
still standing near the corner of
State and Jefferson Streets. He
took the posts to a local planing
mill and had several canes cut
from the wood.
Afterwards, a jeweler put a si-
ver head on one of the canes and
Jones gave it to Prof. Mortimer
E. Cooley of the engineering col-
lege. In 1930 Prof. Cooley, then
dean emeritus, presented the cane
to Sigma Rho Tau, engineering
Since then the walking stick
has been known as the "Cooley
Cane" and has been presented an-
nually to the senior member who
has contributed most to the or-
ganization during the year.

Graduate School of the University

"A liberal education is still a
possibility for the college student
today," Prof. Cornelius Benjamin,
a University graduate and now
chairman of the philosophy de-
partment of the University of Mis-
souri, said yesterday.
Addressing a group of philosoph-
ers and students at Kellogg audi-
torium; the eminent philosopher
defined modern education in
terms of "Problems of Dogma-
tism, Skepticism, and Rational
"ENTERING freshmen in col-
lege today are generally confirmed
dogmatists," he maintained with
a smile. They base their beliefs on
the authority of their past train-
ing and hold tenaciously to what
they have been taught, he added.
Unless the student is shocked
out of his lethargic dogmatism,
he will never enter into the wise
folly of the second phase, skepti-
cism. As a skeptic he will doubt
all, under the post of an intel-
lectual and a bohemnian high-

BEHIND a plain door at the end
of a West Quad basement cor-
ridor is a living memorial to a
brilliant 17-year-old freshman
whose University career came to
an abrupt halt in 1949.
Officially titled the Donald Joel
Brown Memorial Room, the room,
now used for studying, relaxing,
and listening to records, was
originated after a series of events
that began on April 11, 1949. It
was then that Don Brown, four
point student and resident of
Lloyd House, was killed by a
freight train in New York, while
hitchhiking back to Ann Arbor at
the end of spring vacation.
SINCE THAT TIME a Memorial
Fund has been established in his
honor to keep the memory of his
seven months' attendance at the
University alive. Most of the
money came from Brown's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Meyer M. Brown of
New York City. The fund was
originally about $5,000 but addi-
tional contributions have swelled
The mYen in Lloyd House de-
cided shortly .after Brown's
death that the fund should be
put to two uses: granting of an

outstanding Lloyd House man for

prize went- to Charles E. Recker
for scholarship, citizenship, and
"A high-brow is a person edu-
cated beyond his intelligence,"
Prof. Benjamin warned, but added
that this phase is only temporary
and a step on the road to the final
stage of rationality.
"The liberally educated student
must both doubt and believe ra-
tionally. He must be liberated from
the bondage of skepticism and
dogmaticism in making the wise
choices of his life.
'The philosophical approach is
not dangerous," he warmly en-
couraged the audience.
