that it is his duty to function. In addition, we
need to make him feel the presence of that Univer-
sity. He should be made to take part in such cam-
pus and class activities as go on hereabouts, all to
the end that he may leave Ann Arbor, at the end of
his first year, with the realization that he is leaving
something besides a few odds and ends, tucked away
in a corner of some attic.
The tap room sings, the freshman advisory com-
mittee, and all such institutions are means towards
the desired end. But they must have aid, or their
influence will never be very great. This business of
getting hold of the freshman and ultimately of
bringing back with a jerk our unity which is gradu-
ally seeping away, is no small task. It calls for as-
sistance and effort on the part of every man jack of
It calls for aid from the man and the seer, how-
ever, not the self-seeker and the grinning dunce. Un-
less thinking men hereabouts get busy and give that
aid,.unless we all take stock of ourselves and of our
University and come again to realize what it all
means, Michigan is apt to degenerate into a mere
institution-and nothing more.
Two months ago, Michigan had occasion to we-
come into her midst a large number of educators,
men and women of professions, and students from
other universities, who had come here merely for a
summer of additional college work. She welcomed
them with the hope that they would see the many
good points in our University, in spite of our little
weaknesses, and would enjoy their eight weeks spent
We now have occasion totid adieu to those same
persons, and to wish them luck and God speed.
We may add, however, that we hope they will leave
Ann Arbor with an agreeable sense of appreciation
of what Michigan offers to those who come here.
The fact that a large part of the student body has
been absent, of course, and the added fact that most
campus activities are in a comparative state of coma
for the present, makes it a bit difficult for the out-
sider to get a taste of what we like to call our
"Michigan spirit." Nevertheless, we feel that the
University is well able to speak for herself as re-
, gards the essentials.
We have enjoyed the pleasure of- having with us
during the summer this large group of persons from
everywhere, and we sincerely hope that they have
enjoyed being here. When they get away from Ann
Arbor, may something of the feeling of the Old Grad
come to them-may they want to return to us some-

LOOK IN THE MIRROR-,-AND LAUGH
An old Civil War captain, of venerable age and
unusual sprightliness, was once asked how he kept
young. "Every morning," was his reply, "I get up,
and spend five minutes laughing at my reflection in
If we college students would take occasion to fol-
low this man's policy day after day, we might come
to regard ourselves in a much more sane light than
we do. Here, in our little one-sided community,
where we ourselves are largely the center of inter-
est and the master of our own destinies, we develop
into all manner of amusing combinations. Witness,
for example, the self-important B. M. O. C., the
fraternity "high-brow," the campus cynic, and the
youthful atheist. Considering our own naive capers
with the solemnity of a judge, we surely must cut an
amusing figure before our older relatives and
friends. "Give them time; they'll get over it," they
say of us.
We are an overly-sophisticated, comical lot. Why
not appreciate the fact-and enjoy it?
GOVERNMENT AND EDUCATION
Ignorance and democracy are not compatible. A
people's power to control its own destinies parallels
exactly the popular comprehension of what its des-
tinies should be. These axioms underlie the admir-
able plan of The American Legion, with the intelli-
gent support of the.National Education Association,
to observe Education Day in every city and town in
America by conducting meetings in the schools
which will emphasize the principle that education is
the foundation of representative government. If
Education Day had been on Germany's calendar in
the years before 1914, her people might have been
spared the sterner curriculum that was necessary be-
fore a conception of popular government became
implanted in the German mind.-The American

Though it is a bit early to begin casting slurs on
our comical contemp, the Gargoyle, it is interesting
to note that one of its past attempts was reprinted in
last week's Police Gazette.
