MONDAY, JUNE 16, 1924
This morning when the final bugles
blow the taps of college days and
the reveille for the great beyond, al-
most two thousand graduates will
undertake the commencement of their
ultimate pursuits in life.
For the next few years they will
disappear, merged into the vast per-
$onnel of an exacting society. Then
gradually here and there the names
of a chosen few will begin to stand
out on the horizon of accomplishment
and lI4chigan's class of 1924 will
have its celebrities.
They cannot all become famous,
these seniors who are graduated to-
day. After all, if it were the prop-
erty of more than a few, fame would
be hardly worth having, for fame is
spoken of in national terms.
The great body of seniors will seek
success and respect in the commities
in which they make thei homes.
There, the proper carrying on of the
purposes they have set for them-
selves will grant as valuable a ser-
vice to the world and to Michigan
as the work of those who reap glory
in broader spheres.
At any rate, today is commence-
ment, and with the fervent hopes and
well wishes in the hearts of friends,
parents, and classmates, each of the
two thousand Michigan graduates
lays aside the gown of University
life and begins.

Says William Jennings Bryan,
fresh from the Cleveland convention,
where he enjoyed the privilege of a

"close up" from the press section:
"The Republican party not only pro-
poses no reform; but emphatically
denies any need of reform exists."
Whoa, Bill! Didn't you listen
when Mr. Warren read the platform?
What about the planks on public
economy, finance and taxation, agri-
culture, the world court, , railroad
rate schedules, law and order, and
several other things, including lynch-
ing? Or don't you believe in an anti-
lynching law any more than you do
in the enforcement of the Fourteenth
Also, what about this little pas-
"We recognize the duty of con-
stant vigilarice to preserve at tall
times a clean and honest government
and to bring to the Saar of justice
every defiler of the public service in
or out of office.. Dishonesty and cor-
ruption are not political attributes.
The recent congressional investiga-
tions have exposed instances in both
parties of men in public office who
are willing to sell official favors, and
men out of office who are willing to
,buy them, in some instances with
imoney, and in others with influence.
The sale of influence resulting from
the holding of public position or from
associating while in public office, orl
the use of such influence for private;

But perhaps Mr. Bryan, while you
are quite willing to have the Repub-
licans admit the existence of human
frailty in their ranks you do not
relish the insistence that Democrats
also fell under the curse of the eaten
apple, and so the quotation doesn't
appeal to you.
However, you never can quite fig- ",-
ure on Mr. Bryan's mental processes.
For instance, he says: "It will be a
clean campaign, free from personali-
ties, but in all probability it will be
a warm campaign."
A clean campaign! We hope so.
