The causes of the tremendous
growth of the University in the lasi
two decades are not hard to identify.
There is, first of all, the elemeni
of pride which has actuated the
citizens of thehstate to contribute
magnanimouslytothe develop-
ment of the institution. If there
is any doubt that the population
is proud of its university, one has
only to mention Ann Arbor any-

Not only have the citizens of the
state as a whole supported the
University, buthalso every alumnus
in every part of the world, witness
the University of Michigan clubs lo-
cated in every port, hamlet, and
metropolis. All of them are boost-
.ers for the Alma Mater, not nec-
essarily as a matter of sentiment
but because they respect and re-
vere the institution and the train-
ing it gives.
Of course, there have been other
contributing causes for this as-
tounding growth. For one thing,
there are a greater and greater
nuamber of young men and women
seeking advanced training today,
and provision has had to be made
for them. They have been attract-
ed to Ann Arbor partly because of
Michigan's position among uni-
versities, partly for the traditions'
here, which are long-standing for
a middle-west college, and partly
for its accessibility. But all these
causes are to be placed below thej
first. Praise, support, continual
boosting, these have made neces-

COLUMBIA: Masterworks Set No.
138: Beethoven's Third Symphony
in. E Flat: played by Max von
Schillings and Symphony Orchestra.
This recent issue of Columbia's is
undoubtedly the most superb re-
cording of the Eroica available.
Max von Schillings is a very wise
conductor of Beethoven.
. His first movement is played
magnificently. The rhythms are
wrought with fierceness to suggest
life's antagonism. There are defi-
ant and titanically jocose moments.
But it is never so magnified (and
here he avoids the common mis-
take in reading the Eroica) as to
make a climactic evolution through
the four movements impossible.
There is no mourning in his fu-
neral strains. He plays this move-
ment not with Coates' cold, cere-
monial dignity but warmly and
sympatheticaly as an elegy. His fi-
nale is vast and the richest in vol-

ng idea

in Fountain Pens. You can select the type of pen
point that suits your handwriting by a color band on
the cap of each pen. You can get a pen that writes
like Tom Brown's by asking for the same color,
which is stamped on the pen point as well. Ask
for it where you buy your supplies.
