RESEARCH WORK AT MICHIGAN
Here at Michigan, we are forced to admit that, at
best, opportunities for research work by students,
other than those in seminars; are very limited. A
review of the departments substantiates this con-
In the first place, only those men who are in-
structors or postgraduates, are given opportunities,
or encouragement in this line. In the medical
college, a research society has been formed by stu-
dents, but very little valuable work has been accom-
plished. All investigation along scientific lines must
be done independently by the students, and during
time taken from their class work. These seem to
be the circumstances in all departments of the Uni-
versity. Although the student may not be discour-
aged from doing research work, it is quite evident
that he is not stimulated to it.
Most people think of Europe 'as being foremost in
science. Whether this is correct or not is merely a
matter of opinion. Nevertheless, the fact remains
that in European universities, the student who is
interested in any particular field of study, be it sci-
ence or/ the arts, .is encouraged to investigate, to
advance human knowledge at least a little. This is
certainly not the attitude in most American colleges,
and Michigan is no exception.
Although the student body is at present apparent-
ly not altruistically inclined, and does not care to
help advance science, a little encouragement by the
faculty would go a long way towards bringing the
campus, out of its lethargic state.' Psychologically,
there is very little difference between the small boy
and his hobby, the scientist and his reaeearch. A
spirit of serious play motivates each. One hope re-
mains, however, that our new campus buildings will
be so equipped as to stimulate the undergraduate to
venture forth on teh sea of science, and there ex-
plore new and strange realms.
The last train has pulled out, taking with it the
last stranded undergraduates, all wondering, as
they homeward roll, if they will receive their grades
before they return for the fall semester. Perhaps
they will-and perhaps not !
It is rumored that some of the alumni are prac-
ticing up on Nick Altrock's funny coaching antics.
For purposes of emulation, why not try Babe Ruth?

BACK TO MICHIGAN
Michigan alumni are returning to their Alma
Mater with great eagerness. Time has tinted their
memory with a rosy hue, and they will perhaps be
disappointed with the Michigan to which they re--
Those who-come back to their fraternities and
sororities receive a friendly greeting, but after that
they will be left very much to themselves. Each
one of the graduating studeits is very much oc-
cupied with him or herself, and as a consequence
the returned graduate will doubtless feel out of
touch and out of harmoony here. The independent
person who does not return to a fraternity will be
even farther removed from the college spirit.
There have been various changes made in build-
ings and on the campus. This difference will be
emphasized by the fact that the alumnus will see
but few of his former friends and classmates dur-
ing his last busy days here. Naturally enough, Jis
enthusiasm will be replaced by a feeling of dissat-
isfaction. But in spite of this apparent change the
spirit of the institution remains the same. Those
going out now are experiencing the same feelimgs
which the alumni did, years ago. Michigan means
the same to them, it stands for the same high ideals;
and they have the same enthusiasm for and inter-
est in it as did former graduates. So Michigan is
tfle samne old Michigan essentially, though viewed in
a different perspective.
The student body is clad that the alumni have re-
turned to renew the memories of their college days,
in this one week of activities. The Summer Daily
joins the faculty and students in welcoming them
back to Michigan.
THE PLAYER AND THE LEAGUE
Today and tomorrow the Ferry field diamond will
be the scene of the long-anticipated, much heralded,
Alumni-Varsity baseball game. Stas who wore the
Maize and Blue uniforms one, two, five and ten
years ago have returned to Ann Arbor for the
Commencement festivities to test their ability
against Coach Fisher's men. The games should
undoubtedly attract a crowd that will easily fill the
stands and bleachers, for they will be contests well
But aside from the games for the games' sake,
there is another element which is not so evident on
the .surface,-the value of college athletics. The
names of. the men who are on the alumni line-up,
and their success in fields other than baseball, seem
in themselves sufficient refutation of the almost age-
ld argument that college athletics are a hindrance
:o progress and success in life. Newspaper editors,
business men, bankers, writers-these are but a few
Df the professions represented. All were players of
s high calibre when in college, men who fought for
heir school and its honor, men who always played
:lean and straight. When they left to enter the
>igger league, the League of Life, they did not
orget how to play the same wy-clean and
The games today and tomorrow will not only be
iOt, sizzing diamond battles, but they will also be
ontests between topnotchers in two leagues-the
,eague of" Youth and the League of Life.

Hundreds of Oid Grads gathering in
From city, shore and plain;
Flocking about Ann Arbor's streets
To see the show again.

Looking for Joe's and the Orient
To see what became of the money they spent;
With pious tears.
A thousand alumni gathering in
Out of life's tangled skein.
Meeting on Michigan's campus once more
To see the show again.
It i understood from sources which Cal is for-
bidden to mention that a city ordinance is being
framed with regard to the minimum number of
strands in the fringe of those interesting skirts the
girls are now wearing.
Oooh, Pipe Courses!

"Paris-,Suzanne Lenglen will play in no more
tennis singles. This decision was announced by
the remarkable Wrenchwoman ."
The Landladies League will tender a banquet to
members of the alumni who left in their senior year
owing rent. The seats in Hill auditorium have been
fitted with lunchroom attachments for the affair.
Altho a trunk is awfully strong,
It won't stand smashing very long.
A baggageman should be polite
Andtreat a trunk like dynamite.

began the alumnus, "but just about fifteen years ago
you sent me over to the Library to get a book for

you got it yet?" CALIGULA.
