Yet Mr. Ford, according to recent
statements to the press, seldom read
"Henry Ford's Page" in the .Dearborn
Independent, to say nothing of sanc-
tioning the opinions there given. When
on the witness stand his editor, Cam-j
eron, admitted that the opinions of<
Henry Ford's page were written by
Mr. Cameron.
All that may be good business of
the kind that earns billions of dollars
for men, but the common honesty and1
ethics of the common people, who
have not earned billions that, way, re-
volts somewhat at such methods. This
can be forgiven, however, if Mr.
Ford's intentions were honest. For
this is only poor ethics.
Aside from the purely ethical side
of the whole affair, there is the sound
business proposition which a man of
Mr. Ford's genius could scarcely over-
look. He knows that if the libel suits
are brought to trial it means a prob-
able defeat for him, with consequent
damages and a loss of prestige He
knows that such attronies as Senator
James Reed can not be hired for noth-
ing, and he knows, morever, that if
the suits come to trial he will un-
doubtedly be called to the witness
Henry Ford has made over a billion
dollars in less than thirty years. The
process has been cumulative until
now his time is worth more than ever
before. At that rate, even, his time
is worth something like $34,000,000
dollars a year, which is over $90,000
a day. If he goes to the witness stand
he will be lucky to escape without
spending at least a week there, espec-
ially if his attornies try to befuddle
the trial to save him a judgment, and
a week of his time, giving him only
ta halt day Saturday, is worth $500,000,
half enough to buy another Dearborn
So it is with all due respect to
Henry Ford's possibly broad minded
motives, which we would not for a
minute discredit, that we ask whether
Ford, the greatest financial genius of
the day, has not seen the plain busi-
ness facts which, even we ourselves
can discover-without mentioning the

mry Ford is a big man; there is
loubt about that. He has made
e money, and acquired more of
world's goods in the course of a
[me than any other man before
and more than a million ordinary
could acquire. He has' taken an
it industry, and placed it in the
;ion of the world's greatest, and a
.og of the industries of Ford,
a star on every point of the
e which he owns, looks like the
tial firmament itself.
eamship lines, coal and iron
s, railroads, assembly plants,
mills, and retail stores all join
e great Ford chain. So vast are
nterests that one of them worth
a million dollars (according to
ffer of William Ranfdolph Hearst)
significant indeed, and until the
it session of mud flinging, the
ge American had never heard of
meager million dollar attribute
e great Ford line-The Dearborn

year can afford is the chance to gain
contacts outside the classroom with
leaders in various fields of thought
and science. In the winter the series
of University lectures here affords
this opportunity, and large numbers
of the student body avail themselves
of the chance. During the summer
session, however, these series are
really at their best, for during this
portion of the year we have as guest.
professors on the campus men who
have distinguished themselves in a
large number of lines, and whose
ideas and theories are new to the
Michigan canpus.
Thus far this summer the lectures
have been without a single exception
of the highest order. Not only are
many of them highly entertaining, but
they are also educational, and some
of the most prominent men in various'
fields are included on the programs.
One would think, that with the larger
proportion of serious students en-
rolled here in the summer as com-
pared with the winter session, that
the attendance at these lectures would
be uniformly large, but such has not
been the case, and some days the
number attending has actually been
below the average of the course of
the regular term.
Perhaps the fault lies in a lack of
publicity which these talks are given.
Perhaps it is merely indifference on
the part of the student body. In the1
first case it can be remedied, in thet
second there is no way to alleviate'
the condition; whatever the case,
however, the lectures, as given, are
exceedingly worthwhile and wouldt
well repay a larger audience
Yesterday one of the world's mostc
distinguished scientists spoke, and
the attendance was only fair. Today
a man who is connected with a new"
and progressive theory of educationI
will deliver an address, and tomorrow'
one of Michigan's former instructors,c
Lionel Crocker, will lecture on the
world cruise made with over 400 col-
lege students last year, and upon
which Mr. Crocker served as an in-

What is thought to be a new record
for speed in the Library was hung up
yesterday when Fulla Leadheels, li-
brary attendant, found a book only
46 minutes and 13 seconds after it was
ordered. The prompt service was
made possible by the fact that the
book had never been put away and
was lying under the charging desk.
The person that ordered it has not
been found and it is expected that he
will return the latter part of the
week, as is customary withthose who
order books on Tuesday.
Officials of the library declared 'that
suitable steps have been taken to see
that this does not happen again.
* * .*
Another record for speed was set
by the red and green traffic signal on
the corner of South University avenue
and i Church streets whven it changed
twice in one day. Officials of the city
police force who set the signal, de-
clared that someone must have been
tampering with the wires.
"Of course we set it for E4 hour
periods," said Chief O'Brien, Ph.D.,
when interviewed yesterday, "But if
this works a hardship on anyone we
shall be glad to change it as low as
six hours."
Several near accidents occurred
when persons obeyed the traffic sig-
nal recently, and, this is thought to
be the reason for the chief's decision.
The Intercollegiate Science Associa-
tion plans a program of "Science for
All" in the next few years, according
to an announcement made by Prof.
Whell Nohn, director of intercollegi-
ate science, late yeserday.
"In the past few years we have
spent $3,500,000 on scientific research
at M'chigan," he said, "And the fact
that $i5O,00 of this has been spent
on women's scientific pursuits shows
that they have not been neglected."
A new scientific field house, to
duplicate the million dollar structure
already built, is planned for the near
future, Prof. Nohn pointed out. It
will have room for 1,500 spectators.
All this has been financed with re-
ceipts from scientific exhibitions, the
report concludes, as befits a great
educational institution. The students
are allowed to pay a slight additional
fee with their tuition, however, which
is compulsory.
Due to the flood of scenarios which
has poured in on this column since
the first paragraph was written, no
more can be used at the present time.
Rolls own movie, to be produced with
an entirely local cast, will be an-
nounced soon. Perhaps we will hold
a looal beauty contest, with members

Plots for a short story writing class
are always welcome, however, and
Rolls will endeavor to market these
at current rates. Dishonesty in the
classroom is discouraged by this col-
umn in every way possible.

The Graduating Seniors
Are facing the question
Some of you are well fixed; you
have a family business to work
with. It will be to your interest
to think about the new develop-
ment, Group Insurance, which will
be a factor of increasing impor-
tance in the relations of your
business to its employees.
Some ofyou have a decided bent,
and are going to follow it. One
way of making sure that you will
finish the course of life you have
chosen is to take advantage of
Annuity, Endowment,and Straight
Life Insurance.
Some of you have worked for
your education and must earn as
much money as you can, as quickly
as possible. The selling of Life
Insurance gives the most and
quickest return for hard work; it
also offers the greatest freedom for
original enterprise. It is not a
push-button job, The John Han-
cock is looking for men like you
and would like to hear from you.
Write to us in regard to any of
these points. We shall answer
your inquiries without any ob-
ligation to you. Address the
