to remember that this is their Com-
mencement, their graduation, and
that it can mean much or little to
them, as they choose to make it.
Any untimely actions on the part of

the individual may suffer for many

(The Detroit Free Press)
Much of the past and present great-
ness of the University of Michigan
has sprung from the filial devotion
with which the institution has in-
spired its alumni. This is true of
most great institutionsof learning;
The ;university has profited much
from these ties of sentiment despite
the fact that little or nothing has
been done hitherto to unite scattered
alumni clubs for systematic service
in behalf of the alma mater.
But still mtre might be accomp-
lished, and it was a happy thought
that ld up to the first triennial con-
vention of University of Michigan
clubs now in session in Detroit. The
benefit from such conventions ought
to be large. Graduates returning
periodically to the campus will get
fresh stimulus. The university will
be able to count on a more active
sympathy and on more generous sup-
port whenever a good cause needs
help. That good causes are not lack-
ing, is proven by the business agenda
of the first gathering. And they will
multiply as the years pass and the
university expands.
(The Boston Evening Transcript)
Hereafter, President Hopkins an-
nounces, students in Dartmouth Col-
lege will either become bachelors of
arts or bachelors of nothing. There
will be no further insistence at Dart-
mouth on the idea that simply be-
cause a freshman comes to Hanover
without having studied Latin for four
full years in high school, he- must of
necessity be required to become a
bachelor f science. Such a boy, says
President Hopkins, shall no longer be
required to specialize to any extent in
science unless he personally, and of
his own free will, desires to do so.
He may, if he prefers, follow all the
courses of a cultural nature which
he is fitted to undertake. Conversely,
the mere fact that a boy has studied
Latin for four years in high school
will no longer be deemed at Hanover
a sufficient reason for hampering him
in any wise in the study of science
during his college years, if it be truly
the sciences which he prefers to
study most intensively.
Upon hearing this announcement,
there will be some echoes of maoning
raised by classicists of the "last-
ditcher" variety, but in general the
decision made by Dartmouth will be
welcomed as a courageous act of can-
dor. If a college really believes in
the value and merit of its instruction
in all departments of the faculty-
whether literary, political, or scien-
tific-why not let it express that faith
by granting one degree 'to all men
who study those departments, regard-
less of the question whether thirty-
three per cent of their courses are in
the field of science, or only twenty-
seven per cent? There may be some
traditional grounds for questioning
whether the one degree so given
should 'be the B. A.-since the B. A.
has always been especially associated
Tin the past with the study of Latin
and Greek-but there should be no
room for questioning the right of
Dartmouth to renounce further con-
fusion of its educational aims by a
complicated attempt to discriminate
between bachelorhoods of arts, and
resolutely to declare that hereafter it
is only the latter which the college
will grant. Dartmouth has taken
the position that it is the cultural
ideal which it puts first, and that cul
tural ideal is best labeled by use of

the B. A. degree. Dartmouth will
gain in achievement by thus clarify-
ing and simplifying its aim.

What this country needs, we gath-
er, is a committee of leather salemen
to run the Government. They seem.
to really know just what is what and
why. We should think that the Pres-
ident would ask them to come to
Washington and help him out every
now and then. But that's just it.
Now is this committee ran the coun-
try things would be done. Gee, whei
we grow up we're going to be a leath-
er salemon, and really iknow what's
g oing on!

O PEN 9 .

There was a fire across the street
from where we live the other day. It
was a fair fire. Of course there are
two distinct ways of judging a fire.
From the box office angle and from
the owner of the house's angle. There
was nothing spectacular about this
fire except the chief's car, and a lady
with a yellow hat. °
As a social affair it was quite a
success. At first niost of the onfook-
ers paid strict attention to the fire,
but when the smoke died down a bit
(so that it was no longer visible)
people began to collect in small
groups and talk things over. Inas-
much as their hadn't been a fire since
the week before last they had a lot
to talk about, and long after the en-
gines had gone they were still stand-
ing there talking. "See you at the
next fire" one would say to the other
as they departed. Of course it was
not a very formal or high hat fire
because it was early in the morning,
but several new types of suspenders
were displayed to the awe-strucken
public; there were also several new
models in house aprons and kimonos.

What is wrong with this picture?

Well, we'll tell you what wrong
with it. First of all there is nothing
in either of the glaisses. There is no
smoke coming from the girls cigar-
ette. The background is very poor.
The girl. has no ear upon which to
fasten the earing. If there is any-
thing else ask Bruce Donaldson, or
someone. Although it is not signed it
looks to us like Rembrandt, or a John
Held, Jr. (We can never tell those
two apart).

I never heard the answer,

From the Famous K. S. Jamgotch



Never was there an assoitment of finer pieces both modern and antique in
gorgeous designs and colors. This interesting collection of Mr. Jamgotch
is noted for its beauty. The rugs are in varied sizes but from the smallest
to the largest size they are each fascinating in design.

Moderate Prices!

Ordinarily it would indeed be impossible to bring such an unusual collec-
tion of rugs to Ann Arbor for such moderate prices, but Mr. Jamgotch
has managed this feat this time by virtue of his experience and knowledge,
so we feel obliged to point out to you the unusualness of this event.
