tory of a great institution," said
President Marion L. Burton, in intro-
ducing Regent William L. Clements,
donor of the new Clements Library,

Regent William L. Clements ,in his
presentation address yesterday after-
noon in Hill auditorium, told of the I
years he had spent in collecting the
books and documents in the Library,
and a said that yesterday marked the
end of his. career as a book-collector.
Regent Gore Accepts
"Regent Victor M. Gore accepted the
library on behalf of the University
and the Board of Regents. He praised.
Regent Clements as the ideal alum-
nus, one who does not forget the Uni-
versity, and expressed his pleasure at
accepting the gift on behalf of the
University. #
Dr. John F. Jameson, director of
the department of historical research'
at the Carnegie Institute, main speak-
er, first pointed out that the Clem-
ents collection, which he called "in
some aspects the greatest gift ever
given any University," , had not
been gathered for the mere pleasure
of collecting rarities. "It has rather
been made," said the speaker, "with
the end in view of providing source
material, for a scientific study of
American history."
Collection Has History
Dr. Jame son sketched briefly ,the
history of .collection of Americana,
beginning with the documents gath-
ered by the son of Christopher Co-
lumbus, telling of the early histori-
cal societies in America, the Massa-
chusetts society of 1791 and the New
York society of 109; the subsequent
donation of various historical collec-
tions to the universit'ies by alumni;
and described Regent Clements' gift
as the culmination of this long ser-
The morning was taken up by class
reunions and class day exercises. The
27 reunions brought many old grads
back to the city.'
Mflass day exercises were held by
the engineers and the educational sen-
iors. The engineers met in room 348,
Engineering building where John W.
. Ross, class president, gave an ad-
dress and Dean C. Seitz read the his-
tory. Julian A. Fisher, class orator,
spoke on the duties of the engineer
in relation to society, and Howard L.
Cooper, as prophet, predicted the fu-
ture of his classmates. Dean M. E.
Cooley, of the engineering school ad-
dressed the class on the merits of
the professions and the possibilities
for service in t-
The senior educational class met in
Sarah Caswell Angell hall. Presen-
tation of a sum with which was to
be purchased a drinking fountain for
the new model high school building,
was made. The presentation speech
was given by John J. Hamel and the
acceptance of the gift was made by
Prof. George E. Meyers, of the School
of Education. The address of the
meeting was given by'Dean Allen S.
Whitney, of the School of Education.
Clarence 0. Duncan, president of the
class, presided at the function and
gave an address to his classmates.I

S.olely to satisfy the denands of a
scandal craving public and personal
whims for notoriety, the reputation of
Michigan has been needlessly subject-
ed to a considerable amount of lam-
basting, which ,although entirely un-
founded, has reflected inestimable dis-
credit upon the University.
Scarcely ever does an account of
the elevating occurrences or academ-
ic accomplishments of the University
appear outside the narrow boundaries
of the state, while whe nan affair of
scandalous nature takes place almost
every paper in the country shouts.
Exaggerating the facts in the latter
case and presenting nothing at all in
favor of Michigan, they invariably pro-
vide a false impression of the institu-
tion which forms the nucleus of Ann
The attitude of outsiders in reading
such articles cannot be easily con-
trolled directly, but such derogatory
statements should at least be dis-
counted by Michigan men who know
both the good and unpleasant sides
of life at Michigan. Recently a prom-
inent alumnus in a large Ohio city
was hear'd to remark that although
his college had achieved all sorts of
successes within the pas tyear or so,
"Michigan- is nothing but a turmoil
of conflicting, overlapping, and revo-
lutionary organizations." Anyone
who ever spent a year at the Univer-
sity should be able to appreciate the
fact that all of its accomplishments
depend upon the smooth working of
2, well organized body.
Basing his unjust criticism upon the
brief news accounts which appeared
from time to time in the papers, he
opened his mind receptively to every-
thing he read, never trying to account
for the successof which h espoke in
terms of unity and co-operation. Nat-
urally enough those who heard him
sented to his opinion with the uhutter-
ed words, "He ought to know, He's a
Michigan man."
' Michigan men must bear the name
of their Alma Mater high, elevating it
above the slanderous prejudices of
ruthless-publicity. False impressions
in the minds of others must be dis-
pelled to help secure the reputation of
Michigan and her organizations so
that they will not have cspse to-fear
the darts of co-operating foes.
According to' some of the keenest
thinkers and most brilliant minds of
the present age, what the world no
needs most is a new method of think-
ing in matters pertaining to the social
sciences, that is in matters regarding
the study of man, his natural equip
ment and impulses, and, his relations
to his fellows in the light of his orig-
in and the history of the race.,
As an old Stoic, proverb has it, men
are tormented by the opinions they
have of things, rather than by the
