There are nine million eggs in cold

to wager anything that the parents
of all of 'em are dead.
"Well," says Henry, "six cents is six
cents and that means one more added,
to the output tomorrow."

Summer school students who plan
to enter the dental college next year
are urged to communicate immediately
with Dean Marcus L. Ward. Already
about 85 applications have been re-
ceived for admission to the freshman
class and since only 90 students will
be taken, any persons interested
should communicate with the dean's
office at once.
The course for the coming year will
be the same as during the past. Men
entering next fall will be required to
,ake four years and in addition one
Beginning with the year 1921, the
course is to be lengthened to five
OUR TABLES AND COUN~TERS ARE FAIRLY GROANING
There is something very natural in the way we anticipate returning.
er leaving any experience-even though we may have almost hated it at
time--we look back, and that experience seems filled with strange
rm and beauty. We like to go back.
A college experience is a small reflection of the world; it is filled with
al, interesting things. Let us not forget that fact when we leave it to
round ourselves with the brilliance of another life-the'froth of sum-
r pleasures. When we merely drift down channels of our own creating
us not allow the waves to breed destruction with their whispers of our
desires. And when a broad, white highroad stretches before us, luring
farther and farther away, let us not forget the lanes and side paths where
ch of the truth can be learned.
We know a man who leaves his medical practice once every three years
d comes from a distant western city to continue his research at Michi-
1. At the same time he snatches a new glimpse of the surround-
ps he has learned to love. That, after all, is an example of the efficient
y to live. Why not always take time to do the thing we will like to re-
mber having done?
There is a certain spirit of- freedom and bravado about facing life.
ends await us; but let us think of friends as the little wheels in a bigj
,chinery. They are precious little ,wheels, controlling a delicate mechan-
a without which we could not get along. Perhaps, some day,-after we
ve learned -more-we will know definitely that they are the most im-
tant of all.
Or, perhaps, a great work seems already given to us. This task we
ould think of as the big wheel. It must exist before the machinery is
plete, but much should be understood before we attempt its construc-
n. It will be the outcome of work well done on smaller parts, the com-
site of past successes. We should learn well the science of the inter-
diate wheels before tackling the completion.
Let us return to the University,-to Michigan. Let us boost Michigan
our actions and by our words, so that others will see the wisdom of a
tain depth instead of sup'erficial froth. Let us-all of us-sometime
BUILDING THE ATHENS OF TODAY
"At the present day America has her choice as to whether she will be
Carthage or an Athens in- the future world." So writes President Lowell
Harvard university in an appeal for contributions through the Harvard
dowment Fund Committee. "Carthage was a great commercial power.
e has left not one remnant of thought of any kind. Another maritime
wer, not so large, not so powerful, has stamped itself upon the civiliza-
n in such a way that we cannot think apart from the thoughts of
hens. "We can make ourselves simply a great commercial nation, or
can make ourselves one of the great leaders of thought in the world.
rough our colleges it is possible, and essential that we put forth our
eat intellectual power, if we are truly to be leaders of the world.
"Did it ever occur to you," he continues, "that the most enduring insti-
tions man has founded are his universities? Why? Because the uni-
rsity really contributes to the highest in civilization and contributes
mething that is eternal."
Vindicating the rights of America -to be called a future Athens, Pres-
ent Lowll speaks of the war: "The New World has had cast upon it by
e war many new responsibilities. Our young men formerly have gone
road to be educated, but it is now for us to educate them at home and
ake ourselves not only a center of industry, not only the greatest indus-
al nation in the world, but the greatest intellecual nation in the world.
it is to be done, it must be done with the aid of and mainly by means of
In a very practical way President Lowell then points out what is
sential for the building of the Athens of today. Primary in impor-
nce is increased pay for professors. "What a professor wants is not a
rtune, but enough to live comfortably in the scale of life in which a
ofessor ought to live, and he wants to educate his children as highly
lie was educated himself, and he wants to provide for his old age.
"And in another way the question appears. A public man, at Com-
encement last June, said that if you underpay any body of men in the
mmnunity they will be discontented, and the class that you cannot afford
have discontented is the class that teaches your youth.
"We must have sufficient teachers to enable the greatest among them
give up their classes for a year or two and write books, to make per-
anent what they know, and not let their knowledge die witl them.
"We are at a crisis in the history of our country, where the question to
j determined is not whether we are in danger from a foreign power, but
hether the American people will rise to the height which they can rise
and be one of the greatest peoples which the world has ever known."
This agitation toward paying professors more liberally and thus mak-
g the teaching profession more attractive is daily gaining momentum.
le country at large, as well as the, teachers themselves, is beginning to
cognize the fact that inadequate and unfair salaries will not attract into
e profession men of the .highest ability. The problem has, indeed, be-
me one of national importance and, as President Lowell states, one
aich concerns our position among nations.
Pullng the Sheep's Fur Over the
A. A. U. circles are deeply stirred by
a dispute over the awards in a re-
cent Detroit River swim. Miss May-
belle Smart was declared the winner
in the 100-yard event for women, but
the spectators and competitors assert
that four other swimmers finished
ahead of her. They claim that the
judges were so busy looking at May-
belle that they didn't see the other
contestants. Miss Smart's bathing suit
only slightly impeded her progress in
the water. Needless to say all of the
judges were of male persuasion. The
explanation given by the officials was
that while others may have been
spedier, Miss Smart unquestionably
showed the best form in the race.
