Issue Editor--GEORGE E. SIMONS
This week the University again en-
joys its annual privilege of enter-
taining a large portion of its great
body of alumni. More than a score
of classes ranging from the gray-
haired graduates of the later half of
the past century to the younger
classes holding their first reunion
will gather in Ann Arbor to relive
their' college days as members of a
class, and many Ether alumni will
come for the Commencement exer-
cises to see the second or third gene-
ration receive diplomas from the
same institution from which these
alumni received theirsin years past.
But they will return to an institu-
tion which in reality has few things
in common with the institution from
which the older generations graduat-
ed. The humble frame and brick
structures which housed the Univer-
sity of fifty years ago have' been re-
placed nearly completely with ex-
amples of the finest in modern build-
ing. The fields which have been the
scene of many a class battle are
covered with giant steel and con-
crete edifices which house the great
er University. Class rooms which
were hallowed by the presence of
professors whose names have been
added to the list of great American
educators of the past, and who, dur
ing\their presence at Michigan lifted
her from her position as a struggling
mid-western college, fighting for life
against the great private schools o
the East and often meeting outward
opposition from the state legislature
to the enviable place she now holds
among the leading universities of the
world, have been filled by some o
the leading scholars of a younger
Two., great president, Dr. James
Burrill Angell and Dr. Marion LeRoy
Burton, have passed from the campus
where they took an immeasurable
part in the development of a grea
institution, and a third, Dr. Harry
B. Hutchins, has retired from activ
service. The past year has also
market the retirement from activ
service of Prof. Mortimer E. Cooley
Dean of the Colleges of Engineehin
and Architecture, .as well as the re
signation of several prominent edu
cators who have been members o
the various departments of the Uni
versity for many years.
Yes-there is little the materia
part of the greater Uiiversity which
may be held in common with th
infant institution of fifty years ago
But the greater, part of the Universit
of Michigan is, and always will b
held in common by all of the gradu
ates of the University. That part is
the Michigan spirit, that inert some
thing which has played so great a
part in the development of one o
America's foremost educational in-
stitutions-the spirit of a glorious
past. Michigan has been built up
both materially and educationally by
that spirit which has made possible
the achievements of which she may
be, and is justly proud. That spirit

responsibility which they owe their

the reputation which they collectively
must uphold if Michigan is to benefit
by it.
Michigan must continue to serve by
fitting coming generations to face the
problems of life and by instilling into
them the Michigan spirit which 'will
be theirs to hold sacred forever. In

this, Michigan's alumni have a great
part to play and a responsibility
