day in the Church of the Sacred Heart

Uronze Fountain
Placed on Campus
A bronze drinking fountain, the gift
to the city of Ann Arbor of the late
Francis M. Hamilton, '69, mayor of
Ann Arbor from 1905 to 1907, was in-
formally unveiled last Monday. The
fountain has been placed near the
diagonal walk on the northwest cor-
ner of the campus, but is not yet ready
for use. It is the work of the sculp-
tor, Albin Polasek.
Mayor Hamilton's gift comes to the
University on the 50th anniversary of
his graduation from the literary col-
lege. At his death in May, 1914, he
left bequests to many good causes,
and remembered both the ity and the
University. To the University he left
the sum of $1,000, from which was
established the loan fund called by
his name; and to the city an equal
sum to erect a drinking fountain at
the corner of State street and North
University avenue, on the northwest
corner of the campus.
The three basins of the fountain are
sunk in the top of a circular drum of
bronze, surrounded by a procession of
figures in relief, representing Youth,
Labor, Poetry, and Philosophy. First
come exuberant boys with cymbals,
trumpets, and pipes, then two grace-
ful women bearing water-jars, a
child with a basket of flowers, a young
man with a scroll in hand and a
maiden leaning on his arm, a grave
young shepherd with his sheep, and
finally a youth spreading a scroll of
figures before a sage of noble and
kindly mien.
Above the top is the inscription,
"Presented to tie City of .Ann Arbor
by Francis M. Hamilton, Mayor 1905-
1907, University of Michigan Class of
A bit of wholesome fatherly advice
was that given to the senior engi-
neers by Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, in
his farewell address to them on Tues-
day, in their. Clss day exercises in
the Engineering quadrangle. He
warned them against an inflated idea
of the value of their own services-a
feeling whichbmight come to the senior
who goes from the classroom directly
into business at a salary that hovers
around the $175 a month figure.
"These higher salaries may not last
long," he said. "There will probably
be a period of hard times following
the war, and after the readjustment,
prices will go down and salaries will
decrease, and there may be a panic,
but even with a lower salary you must
remember that a dollar will purchase
more than it does now. The
dollar today has the same value as
the old Mexican dollar, and that
should help you to a realization that
you are not worth more than you are.
The high cost of living comes from the
high wages of the employed, and not
high wages from the high cost of liv-
ing. In figuring the cost of anything,
fully 75 per cent of the cost of the
article is due to the cost of the labor
that went into it.
"Render the best service you know
how. Do not make the mistake of
thinking you are a great success in
the world. You are a success, per-
haps, in being able to earn a large
salary, but success is measured in
other terms than dollars. Do your
work so that it satisfies you, and if
you have been conscientious, it will
satisfy your employers.
"Live so that you can say you do

not owe anyone a cent, and then have
a hobby; this will lighten your life.
It was not till I had reached the age
of 55 years that I annexed a hobby,
but it immediately-became a great ii-
spiration to me, and now I want to
live to be 100 years old, that I may
get all the joy out of that hobby."
President Roland Cooper made a
telling appeal to his- classmates to
preserve through life the friendships

Pays Lasting Tribute to the American Doughboy, and Delineates the ti
portance of Role Played During World War by Men from
Universities; Gives Rules for Life
As Taps rang clearly across the Campus this morning, more than
men and women, holding their new diplomas in their hands, stood silen
at attention in a last farewell to undergraduate days. Reveille for
alumni years sounded a moment later, and with its last note the 75th
nual Commencement Day exercises o f the University of Michigan came
an end.

Martial music was entirely in ke eping with the whole tone of t
ceremony in Hill auditorium, for this Commencement has shown from t
first the victory spirit desired by Pres ident Harry B. Hutchins.
The Honorable Frederick Paul Keppel, third assistant secretary of wa
made the address of the day, and dre w in no uncertain pictures 'what tb
Nation had learned from its Universities during the war, and what th
Universities should learn from the Nation, now that peace has again settle
upon the United States.
. Following the opening 'music, and the prayer by the Reverend Jol
Mason Wells, Mr. Keppel spoke to the class, which included more than 5
students from the graduate school, and a. dozen men who were receivin
honorary degrees, upon the subject o f "What Have We Learned?"
He said in part:
inspiratin '"What single group made the fine
impression in the great war?

sketching the rise of the University in
a scholastic way.
Ralph Gault gave the class history,
and told of the activities of the senior
class, and its participation in the war.;
"During our time we have seen many,
things," he said. "President Angell
has died, President Hutchins has re-
signed, the Union building has gone
up, and the Library has been built,
all of which took place during our,
stay in the University."7
Jean Maclennan, class orator, toldf
of the present world conditions, and
the part which the class of 1919 was
to play in adjusting affairs. The class
poem, which appears, elsewhere in this
issue, was read by H. C. L. Jackson,,
class poet.
Owing to the lack of aids to futuris-
tic vision, Archie McDonald, the pro-
phet, was compelled to resort to tea
for insights into the future, where he
saw prominent members of the class
in widely different roles. For the
class he prophesied a great future
and a prominent part in world events.
The singing of "The Yellow and the
Blue" closed the exercises.
Following a salary-increase agita-
tion several years on the part of the
University faculty, the Board of Re-
gents recently acted upon the mat-
ter, raising the pay of instructors and
assistant professors 30 per cent and
that of full professors 25 per cent.
This is the result of a petition by
the faculty to the Board of Regents
and an act of the last legislature
which made possible an increase.
From now on the salary scale at the
University will be as follows:
Instructors $1,300 to $2,100; as-
istant professors $2,200 to $2,600; as-
sociate professors $2,700 to $3,000; and
full professors will receive all the
way from $3,000 to $5,000 a year.

Four Fields
"There are three or four genera
'ields in which Americans have had
chance to learn lessons of great valu
as a result of our war experiencE
First, it seems to me, we have had
chance to learn that we are a rea
nation, potentially strong with th
strength of youth; second, that to ful
fill our mission every man and woma
and all of every such individual, is a
object of national concern; that w
must be mobilized and that we mus
continue our lessons in team play. W
have still plenty to learn in this fieli
Third, that we must have and mus
recognize the leadership of those wb
know, which, after all, is the great tea
of a democracy. Finally, to bring ou
the best that is in us, as individual
or as a nation, we nlust have an ain
high, clear cut and clearly understooc
"If we apply these four lessons whic
we have had a chance to learn, to edi
cational conditions, and particularly t
university conditions, it will be fo
three reasons:
"The first is, the general wisdom c
confining one's remarks to things h
knows something about. The secon
that there is no single institution moT
characteristic of the best in our Ame:
ican life than a great American un
versity. And there is this third ree
son, that without the supply of your
men with the stamp of the :America
college upon them, wecould nev
have met the call for nearly a quart
of a mililon of officers. I am told the
the Germans were prepared to adm
our wealth in money, materials at
man power, but they looked forwai
confidently to a complete failure c
our part in training officers to lea
our men in battle. Not all of our cit
-zen . officers who made good record
were college men, but it was the co
lege trained citizen that set the pac
and made the standard.
