fitted for this work, for he had served as a member
of the state board of education of Massachusetts,
pnd while serving as a state senator in Massachu-
setts he had framed a law establishing Massachu-
setts Agricultural college, which law also strength-
ened greatly the Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology. He was the author of the plan whereby
the Michigan legislature should appropriate an-
nual amounts for the support of the University
of Michigan. His plan became a law in 1867. The
University of Michigan was a pioneer along this
line and scores of universities have profited by this
act. After six years as president of the university
he became president of Northwestern university,
at Evanston, Ill.

A Tril ue Th
A University President ...
N INDICATION of the widespread
interest and knowledge concerning
the .University of Michigan is contained in an
article which recently cane to the attention of the
editors of The Daily. The article, written by a
journalist who is not a graduate of the University
nor even a former student of the institution, dem-
onstrates a sincere appreciation of the qualities of
conscientious leadership shown in the lives of those
men who helped lay the foundation for this great
educational establishment.
Fred Lockley, writer of a daily column entitled
"ninpressions and Observations of the Journal
Man" for the Portland (Oregon) Journal, gives in
this article a biographical sketch and a brief char-
acterization of Dr. Erastus O. Haven, second presi-
dent of the University.
Mr. Lockley's article follows:,
"The Lee Mission cemetery" at Salem is one of
Oregon's historic shrines. In this cemetery there
rests the hallowed dust of Jason Lee, his wife Anna
Maria Pittman Lee, Cyrus Shepherd and other
members of the devoted band of workers who came
to the Oregon Country a century ago.
"Recently I visited the Lee Mission cemetery
slnd copied the inscriptions from the headstones on
the graves of many of these pathfinders ...
"On one of the stones is the following inscrip-
"'Erastus O. Haven, 35th bishop of the Meth-
odist Episcopal church, born in Boston, November
1, 1820; died in Salem, Oregon, August 2, 1881. His
life was beautiful; his death, triumphant; his work,
"Every graduate of the University of Michigan
who lives in Oregon or elsewhere will be interested

of the pioneer members of the faculty of the Uni-
versity of Michigan and became its second presi-
"Henry Philip Tappan, who was born in New
York state on April 23, 1805, and graduated from
Union college in 1825 and from Auburn Theological
seminary in 1827, was the first chancellor of the
University of Michigan, elected in 1852. Twenty
years before, he had served as professor of moral
philosophy in the University of the City of New
York. Chancellor Tappan retired from the Uni-
versity of Michigan in 1863 and was succeeded by
the Rev. Erastus Otis Haven. Both Chancellor
Tappan and bishop Haven were prolific writers
and were the authors of numerous books.
"Erastus O. Haven was the son of Jonathan Ha-
ven, a local Methodist preacher, and of Betsy Spear
Haven. He was a descendant of Richard Haven,
who settled at Lynn, Mass., in 1644. He graduated

with honors from Wesleyan university in 1843, at
22 years of age, and immediately became prin-
cipal of Amenia seminary, in New York,.where
he served two years, after which he joined the
New York conference and devoted his attention to
preaching. In 1853 he was given the chair of Latin
at the University of Michigan, and the following
year became professor of English literature and
history. He was not only -a learned scholar but a
maxn of indomitable courage - one who had the
courage of his convictions. With voice and pen he
urged that the university be opened to women. He
and his cousin, Bishop Gilbert Haven, worked to-
gether for the abolition of slavery. Bishop Gilbert
,Haven enlisted April 8, 1861, and was appointed
chaplain of the 8th Massachusetts regiment.
"So strongly did Professor Erastus O. Haven
feel on the slavery question that in 1856 he ac-
cepted a position as editor of Zion's Herald, in
Boston. Duriig the seven years of his editorial
work he served two terms in the Massachusetts

"In 1872 he became secretary of the board ofc
education of the Methodist Episcopal church.-
While serving in this capacity he also served as
chancellor of Syracuse university, from 1874 tov
1880. In the spring of 1880 he was ordained aI
bishop of the Methodist church. He went at oncel
to San Francisco and shortly after came to Salem,
Ore., to attend the Methodist conference. He ar-t
rived at Salem in time to attend the commence-
ment exercises of Willamette university. The grad-"
uating class that year consisted of Mattie Jory of
Salem, Isabelle Prescott and Samuel A. Randall.
"Bishop Haven, who was fatigued by his travels,,
complained the day after the commencement of
not feeling well. He was a guest at the home of
tie Rev. J. N. Denison. The doctor was,/called andT
diagnosed his case as intermittent fever, but as
he did not respond to treatment, Dr. W. H. Wat-1
kins of Portland was summoned. He diagnosed
uremic poisoning. Believing that he would not
recover, Bishop Haven made his will, on Saturday,
July 30, 1881, and asked to be buried in the Lee1
Mission cemetery.
"His wife, whose maiden name was Mary Frances
Coles and who was the daughter of the Rev. George
Coles, and one of his sons were with him when he'
died, at 2 o'clock in the afternoon of August 2.
The funeral took place on August 4, 1881, and in
accordance with his request he was buried in the
Lee Mission cemetery. He was survived by his wife,
three sons and two daughters.
"Among Bishop Haven's best known books are
'The Universities of America,' 'American Progress,'
'Pillars of Truth,' published in 1855, and 'A Young
Man Advised,' a collection of addresses to the stu-
dents of the University of Michigan while he was
president of the university."
And Reform.. ..
tors would have us believe that re-
form always follows on the heels of education;
.hat with the knowledge of defects in the existing
system there comes to the average man in a posi-
tion to do something about it a desire to institute
proceedings toward correction of the faults.
Certainly such a philosophy errs. Here in Amer-
ica, where the average man's education is probably
the most advanced in the world, abuses have exist-
ed over long periods, despite the fact they were
recognized as such. How much of the blame should
be ascribed to the laissez-faire theory, accepted for
so long in the United States, is a matter of conjec-
ture, but there can be little doubt that Americans
have become selfishly individualistic.
Relentless competition for jobs and higher places
in the economic and social strata has acted to
isolate Americans, even among their own kind. It
has blinded them to the plight of others and pre-
vented them from developing social consciousness,
without which they cannot hope to live successful
lives in our, present highly industrialized civiliza-
It is probable that if knowledge of abuses and
means of correcting them were made accessible to
all of the people at one time, pressure from those
getting the short end of things would bring about
some measure of reform immediately. As it is,
however, the ranks of the educated are built up
slowly, class lines continue to exist, and, as long
as the latest to acquire knowledge can see in their
new status a chance for material gain at the ex-
pense of the uninformed, they are content to let
affairs drift along as they are.

Four stars means extraordinary; three stars very

no stars keep away from it.
Gracie Allen, referred to by .her ever-loving
husband, George Burns, as the "female vacuum"
heads the current attraction, "Many Happy Re-
turns," at the Majestic. In fact, although she is
supported by Guy Lombardo and his Royal Cana-
dians, Gracie is the attraction at the Majestic.
Gracie is cast as the slightly-off daughter of a
wealthy department store owner, and she is intro-
duced when her father returns from Europe to find
his department store being torn down, .by Gracie
to make a bird sanctuary.
Determined to be rid of her, the father, who we
are always afraid will end with apoplexy, pays

The temptation (of the money) is too much for
George and he takes the offer, heading for Holly-
Complications arise when Gracie and George
are substituted for Gracie's sister and her music-
counter Romeo as the leads in a motion picture
production. Such is the plot, and only Grace's
natural dumbness saves the show.
The producers have imported, besides the Lom-
