A BOOST FROM DETROIT ALUMNI
The plan of the Detroit alumni to
establish a loan association for Mich-
igan students should prove of great
benefit to the University. Although one
of the first objects of the plan will be
to send better athletes to Michigan, it
will in no way encourage a spirit of
professionalism, for it will demand
high character and scholarship qualifi-
cations as well as athletic abil,3ty. Mo l-
erate sums of money will be loaned to
boys on a business basis for use
throughout their college course, after
they have satisfied the trustees of the
fund in the requirements mentioned.
In assisting men of first rate caliber
to obtain an education, and to take
part in its athletic activities, the De-
troit alumni are doing Michigan a real
service. We hope that alumni organ-
izations in other cities which are look-
in for sml() %ay to materially benefit
the University will adopt a similar

OUT-VOTED BY6A SMILE,
WRITER OBJECTS WHEN DR. N. S.
HAR)IKAR SAYS PEOPLE BE-
CA)IE PAUPERS UNDER BRITISH
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I am hoping that you may find
space in your columns for a letter
dealing with a statement reported in
your issue of Ib. 28, as having been
made by Dr. N. S. Hardikar, in his
article about British India. The state-
"India's wealth always remained in
India through all these invasions. But,
under the British rule this state of
things changed, and the people became
So loose a statement possibly needs
no controverting, but, as it has seemed
to me that many of your readers have
no very great knowledge of the true
state of affairs in British India, I
think it may not be amiss to mention
a few facts, which to a people noted
for their love of justice and fair play,
should speak for themselves.
The British, when they came to In-
dia, found a people governed by war-
ring native , rulers who ground down
the ryots or agricultural classes, and
levied huge tributes. The money was
in India, no doubt, but it was all in
the hands of a small class.
The British found the peaceful Hin-
dus persecuted by their Moslem neigh-
bors, and subjected to periodical mas-
sacres. The British found many bar-
barous religious customs in use, the
most celebrated being "Suttee," the
immolation of a widow on her hus-
band's death, and the Juggernaut car.
Immense tracts of land were unirri-
gated, .and therefore subject to period-
ical famines. A system of usury was
in full swing in the village commun-
ities by which thousands of , people
were ruined yearly.
Since British rule has been in full
power, these abuses have been met as
The ryots and artisan class gener-
ally no longer pay tribute to the native
rulers. The lower classes as a rule
pay no taxes of any kind and the taxes
in any case follow a regular scale ac-
cording to the payer's income. Re-
ligious persecutions and riots are no
longer allowed. At Hindu festivals

the police, and if necessary, the mili-
tary are called out, to see that
the worshippers are not molested.
"Suttee" and the Juggernaut car have
been abolished. The land has been
thoroughly irrigated for the peasants,
famines being thereby very much di-
minished, and when the latter do oc-
cur, government aid is forthcoming.
The old system of usury is restricted
It would be possible to carry this
list much further and mention the
work done for the people as regards
higher education, hygiene and sanita-
tion and the betterment of the condi-
tion of women through the Zenana
work, but I think the facts I have
mentioned speak for themselves. They
also show why the great bulk of the
working classes in India are so ex-
tremely loyal to the British govern-

It is to be hoped that every student
riot only reads but fully digests this
article. Every detail of the confer-
ence question is so ably covered little
comment is necessary.
There are two points, however, that
I should like to emphasize, firstly in
pro-conference argumentation, base-
ball is quite notably absent. An
analysis of the schedules and records
of the past few years shows plainly
why this is so. Two years ago Coach
Lundgren claimed the championship of
the country in university baseball. If
Michigan had been in the conference
would a schedule of this scope have
been possible? Decidedly no!
Last spring there was the slump us-
ual after exceptional seasons and we
were notaso sucessfutl. Michian har,
the saine Comlp_ 1hi I ive schedult', irtlx
ally, and r ehe sante chance
for the championship as two years
ago. Is not this worth more to Mich-
igan than the _(re chance of leading
Secondly, this University is popular-
ly supposed to have student govern-
ment to at least a small extent. This
being the case why are we not given
a voice in as important a question as
the conference? It is all too evident
that certain pro-conference authorities
are afraid of a repetition of the 1913
I also, with Mr. McAllister, could
have been out voted with a smile, but
who can say that the smile would
have been necessary?

If events continue as in the past we
may soon expect a notice that the
Union is repairing the temporary tem-
porary quarters that may replace the
temporary quarters that are replac-
ing the permanent quarters.

Mrs. William D. Henderson is chair-
man of the most important local com-

be divided into a number of wards,
each ward being under a sub-chairman
who will be responsible for her ward.

Mrs. F. P. Ward; Sixth ward, Mrs. L.
McBride; Seventh ward, Mrs. C. 0.
The program of the Dollar-a-Month
club was presented to the Rotary club

A. Sink, was asked to present the mat-'
ter to the 300 affiliated Rotary clubs.
