CHICAGO BANKERS' PROGRES-
It is with pleasure that we learn
of the invitations received by Presi-
dent Hutchins and Professor Dowrie
to attend the dinner given by the
Bankers' club of Chicago, to the lead-
ing financial men, packers, manufact-
urers, railway presidents, and presi-
dents and professors of banking of the
more important universities of the
Whether this meeting will have any
affect upon financial matters in this
country with reference to the peace
proposals of Germany, we cannot say,
but we consider it of great importance
in the relation of university training
to practical work in the field of bank-
In the past bankers have felt an
aversion to the college trained man
who goes into the banking profession.
They have felt that practical exper-
ience was the vital factor, and have
given but little consideration to the
theoretical point of view as propound-
ed in the universities. Now it seems
that this dislike has been overcome
and the banking men are about to
give theoretical training the position
of importance that it deserves. By so
doing, a much wider field is open to the
university graduate than has been the
case heretofore. Instead of meeting
with cold rebuffs, these men trained
in banking and finance will be warm-
We congratulate the Bankers' club
THE PROFESSION OF TEACHING'
The recent decision of the Univer-
sity of Edinburgh to give special de-
grees to those students who carry
successfully a certain amount of work
in education, is worthy of discussion
in that it brings to our attention the
fact that teaching, at one time the
greatest of professions, is at present
looked upon with considerable con-
tempt by many.
"When I fail in everything else,"
says Mr., Average Business Man, pat-
ting fondly his latest dividend, "I'll
turn to teaching."
This view is not only unwarranted,
but it is exceedingly dangerous.
There is no profession which plays so
important a part in influencing the
actions of the people. In fact, it is
probably even more active in swaying
public opinion than the press. That
this profession should be sneered at
is extremely unfortunate.
Originally, the M. A. degree meant
merely a license to teach. The holder
frequently did not avail himself of this
opportunity, but he had the right. At
that time, teaching was, in every sense,
a profession. Then came the great
wave of commercialism and with it,
men laughed at teaching, saying,
"There's no money in it."
The step taken by the University of
Edinburgh is certainly commendable.
Perhaps it will lead to restoring teach-
ing to its rightful position, a position
of equality, if not superiority, with
PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS INQUIRE
AS TO LAWS GOVERNING CAM:
To the Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Due to the present agitation for the
forming of a University branch of the
Michigan naval militia, numerous
questions have arisen which, if an-
swered by the proper authorities
(those who understand the law and
are in a position to answer), would
clarify the issues involved.
(1) Under what law is this division
organized? Is it the Hay-Chamberlin
bill or the Dick law? Or what law?
(2) Is there any possibility of
this branch being federalized or
changed in any other manner so as
to incur further obligations? If they
are to be federalized when will this
(3) What is the real object of this
organization? Is it purely and simply
a recruiting station under another
name which has for its purpose the
mustering in of a company of Uni-
(4) If they are not subject to the
call of the president, what is the ob-
ject in mustering in?
(5) Will the members of this Uni-
versity branch be given honorable dis-
charges at the end of their. college
career or if not so discharged under
what obligation will they be to the
(6) In case of war, how would the
members of this division be handled?
As a unit or would they be scattered
in other divisions with the better op-
portunity of becoming officers?
(7) In case of war if a recruit is
not of age (21 years), would he be
under obligations without having had
his parents consent?
It is not our intention to discourage
preparedness in any manner whatso-
ever, or to suspect the motives of the
organizers. However, we have heard
of members of state militias being
Grafted or forced into the federal serv-
ice without being consulted with re-
gard to their willingness to enter such
service. Therefore, we, as prospective
members, feel that some such public
statement is due the student body so
that those entering will not do so
