some time been doing some prelimin-
ary research work in connection with
the proposed legislation for changingI
federal reserve banking laws, and he
announced that this would occupy a
considerable portion of his time until
the first of the year.
The meeting planned was never held
here, however. Professor Friday fail-,
ed to return from Washington in time
for it. Nevertheless, the offer was 'still,
held open, in spite of the fact that
President Kedzie was inclined to fav-
or the choice of some one who might
be able to take over the work at M
A. C. immediately.
Granted Leave of Absence
It was understood here Monday that
Professor Friday would be granted a
leave of absence from the University
for next year, that he might complete;
some writings he had begun and
might finish''his work with the gov-
ernment. It was also rumored, how-
ever, that he might still consider the
M. A. C. offer, if, as finally proved to
be the case, .the desired extension of
time were granted him.
Professor Friday was born in Col-
oma, Michigan. Sept. 30, 1876. 'He at-
tended the Benton Harbor college
from 1893 to 1895. Later he came to
the University, where he received his
A.B. degree in 1908. From 1908 to
1912 he was instructor in economics
at Michigan, and in 1912 became pro-

He has acted as franchise appraiser
for the -Michigan tax commission, as
valuation expert for the Michigan
railroad commission, and as tax expert
for the Trust Companies association
of New York. Ie has also served as
statistican for the Michigan commis-
sion of inquiry into taxation. .
In 1913 he was appointed special in-
vestigator for the federal reserve,
board, and was author of the excess'
profit tax.
Professor Friday is the author of
several ,books, is widely known as a
lecturer, and has served as director
and president of the American Acad-
emy of Political and Social Science.
Although President Kedzie hs a
home in Lansing and has not lived at
the Michigan Agricultural college, it
has been customary for presidents and
department heads at M. A. C. to re-
side on the' campus, houses foi them
being furnished by the college. It is
expected that President Friday willI
move to East Lansing when he is
ready to take up. his new work.



Editor, The Wolverine:.
For some time I have been reading;
with interest and enjoyment the
"Critique." The two disparaging com-,
munications which appeared in Tues-
day's Wolverine move me to express
,my admiration of G. D. E.'s work.
As far as I know, this is the only

attempt at , worth-while criticism
which h ever appeared in either The
Daily or The Wolverine. The attempt
of itself merits commendation. But
in addition, these Critiques manifest
active intelligence and: literary in-
sight. It is encouraging to note also
that G. D. E.'s admiration for Knut
Hamsun does not bias his judgment
in the 'case of "Shallow Soil." Wel
are not getting blanket enthusiasms.
As to the content of the two letters
-the "Reader" seems annoyed be-
cause G. D. E. "so seldom employs
argumentation." Since when has the
function of the critic become that of
the debater? An extract from the
"Reader's' letter states that "His
scathingly slanderous article a few
weeks ago on Dr. Frank Crane show-
ed him up." Whom? When the
"Reader" becomes as good a writer as
G. D. E., he may sneer more effective-
R. M. C. is naively Ainconsistent
Witness the following criticism of the
"Critique." R. M. C. quotes G. D. E.:
" 'As for the translator's preface which
lauds 'Shallow Soil' as Hamsun's
'most significant work'-Pish.' 'Pish'
is a nice. word, don't you think."
Need we point out that R. M. C. is
guilty of the same sin of which he ac-
cuses G. D. E.?
And speaking of his "breaking Into
print in the Detroit Free Press," I
think that both the Detroit Free Press
and The Wolverine have a good thing
in G. D. E.
Editor, The Wolverine:
One of the most universal of news-
paper customs, extiding from the D.
U. R.'s weekly bulletin of propaganda
to such august sheets as the Ne'r York
Times, is that of printing grievances
signed "Reader." Consequently, I was
not at all surprised to find, in Tues-
day's Wolverine, a complaint over.the
usual pseudoysm. -Not only "Reader"
but another, R. M. C., are all ruffled
at the audacity of a conceited critic
who uses' the pronoun "I." Neither of
them seems to realize that criticism
is .necessarily a subjective process;
they are, as a result, shocked at a
writer who- crawls out from the shel-
ter of the nonsensical editorial "we"
and frankly'says what he thinks. with-
out depending 'upon the protection of
the vague "we" to 'sanction his com-
ments. ,
They are antagonized by the use of
racy words, by the expression of efi.
nite opinions, and by the critic's en-
deavor to add a creative touch to his
work instead of repeating the stereo-
typed platitudes about "wonderful
character delineatioh," "characters
that live," stories that are "drawn with
firm, sure strokes." This is' the kind
of criticism, so-called, one usually
finds in the columns conducted by
amateur critics, who either do not
comihit themselves at all or else take
refuge in saccharine praise, To me.
the criticism of G. D. E. is a welcome
relief from such Pollyannas.

Refused Proposal
True to expectations, however, the
>ard, at its meeting on July 13, chose
rofessor Friday to succeed President
edzie. But the offer apparently did
t meet with favor, for just before
e board went into session Professor
riday had telegraphed Gov. Alex
roesbeck that he would definitely re-
se to consider the position for the
esent year, should it be decided to
Ter it to him.
Then followed a period of negotia-
on. Finally, with the intention of
nferring with Professor Friday re-'
rding the proffered position,' the
ard decided to meet in Ann Arbor
Saturday, Aug. 6. At that time the
atement was given out that he was
