The presentation of 13 honorary de-
grees by President Harry B. Hutchins,
on behalf of the university, and the
appeal in the Commencement address,
by William Oxley -Thompson, presi-
dent of Ohio State University, for an
educated citizenship and a sane phil-
osophy of optimism that would abol-
t* sh war, were the principal features
of the exercises.
President Thompson's address was
shorter than the usual commencement
talks but was direct, vital and prob-
ably one of the most significant de-'
livered at Michigan in many years.
He confined himself primarily to
the present war in Europe and the part
the educated man played in it. "The
educated msan and the scholar" said
the orator, "should be hedd esponsible
for the catastrophe that is devasting
Europe at the present hour. This ,is
a terrible indictment against civiliza-
lion. This educated generation has
totally eclipsed the brutality of the
savage, and stands unrivalled in its
ability to sacrifice human life, to dis-
regard the sacred institutions of his-
tory, and to trample under foot the
finer sentiments for which our educa-
lion and our religion have presumably
fitted us."
In closing, President Thompson
stated that the time had arrived when
the educated citizenship of the world
should organize itself into a brother-
hood of humanity, and stand together
in a covenant of. peace that would
bring to an end all war. The final
words to the graduates were: "I hope
that it will be said of you they served
their-day and generation."
The recipients of the honorary de-
grees are as follows: Master of Arts,
Dr. D. H. Cattell, of the college of
dentistry, University of Tennessee,;
Dr. A. F. Fischer, 'IOM; G. M. Good-
ale, dramatic critic of the Detroit Free
Press; Dr. R. H. Skeel, 'OOM; W. L.
Jenks, '70; R. S. Garwood, '92, dean of
the college of agriculture, University
of Porto Rico.,
Raster of Engineering, W. B. Sears,
pioneer railroad builder of Hichigan.
Doctor of Engineering, J. H. Darling,
'73E, prominent government engineer;,
L. H. Cooley, brother of Dean H. E.
Cooley and the designer of the Chicago
drainage canal.,
Doctor of Laws, Honorable Alexis
Angell, '71, former judge of the U. S.
CirutCourt; ProfesorGeogeHem
p1 ofi Leland Stafsor Junor; Prof
Paul Shorey, of the University of Chi-
cago, and W. 0. Thomnpson, the Com-
mencement orator,
The conferring of the honorary de-
grees, which was solemn and impres-
sive, was preceded in each case by an
explanation of the recipients services
to civilization and to science.
Forty-two Laws Admitted to State Bar
Forty-two members of this year's law
class were admitted to the bar of the
suipreme court Tuesday afternoon at
Lansing. This class, which is the
smallest in years, is the last one to
be admitted on motion. According to
a bill passed in 5953, all future candi-
dates must pass the examination of
the state bar committee.

Michigan's greatest athletic triunm-
virate is broken by the graduation of
George Staler, and it is doubtful if the
Wolverines will have a diamond hero
of sufficient brilliance to rassk with
Johnnie Haulbetsch, of the eleven, anad
Captain Smith, of the track team.
These three athletes have given the
Maize and the Blue the greatest set
of stars Michigan has ever been able
to boast of at any one tinme. Each man
has not only stood out as one of the
greatest Michigan athletes of all time,
but has also won marked recognition
from the collegiate world as a premier
performer in his own particular sport.
