UNIVERSITY ALUMNI REUNION
More than 150 members of the alum-
ni body will spend today in Ann Arbor,
revisiting the scenes of former days,
watching the faces on the campus,
picking up the threads of college life
anew. They are here for the first
University Alumni reunion day.
The idea of such an event has come
from the east. Michigan is the first
of the big western colleges to adopt
what has developed into a tremend-
ous success along the Atlantic sea-
board. We give this innovation our
unqualified support. We hope the
seed planted today may grow with the
coming years until its branches stretch
wherever Michigan alumni are locat-
To tell just what Michigan is doing,
is the aim of the list of speeches ar-
ranged for the day. In such a gath-
ering there is a wealth of opportunity
for binding the alumni even closer
to the University. We predict that
this opportunity will be so fully ap-
preciated that the time will come
when University alumni reunion day
will be a date toward which the three
great branches of university life-
faculty, undergraduates, and alumni-
will look forward. It will be a time
for the renewal of old ties, the cement-
ing of friendships, and unification of
the view of the goal toward which the

out the gist of learning.
We hope the guests will profit by
the opportunity and carry away - an
impression of Michigan as it really is.
PAY YOUR CLASS DUES
Since a day long before the pres-
ent student can remember, classes
have allowed their due paying scheme
to lie in the rut. The idea of allow-
ing no senior to receive his diploma
until he paid class dues was a step
in the right direction. Since then the
old haphazard system-rather lack of
system-has continued to prevail.
A movement was started on the
campus yesterday to bring another,
more far reaching idea into play. All
literary classes are appealing to their
members to settle their dues to date,
owing to the present unsettled condi-
In the face of the fact that classes
have expenses during the four years
of college, the vast majority of stu-
dents wait until graduation looms be-
fore giving any thought to class dues.
Serious consideration is being given
toward devolving a campus "pay dues"
days. It should receive support.
In the interim, pay your class dues

DESIRED IN YUCATN
MEXICAN GRADUATES OF AMERI-
CAN UNIVERSITIES TO BE
Yucatan, Mexico, is appealing to the
United States for experienced teach-
ers from our standard universities,
colleges, and normal schools to carty
on its educational work, according to
Dr. Gregorio Torres Quintero, head
of the the educational department of
Mexican graduates of American uni-
versities will be shown preference for
these positions, with Europeans of
Latin origin second choice. All appli-
cants must have a thorough knowl-
edge of Spanish, as the teaching will
be done entirely in that language.
Successful applicants for these posi-
tions will take charge of the industrial
training, agricultural training, house-
hold arts training, commercial, high,
normal, elementary, kindergarten, and
continuation schools in Yucatan.
Any who are interested in this work
are requested to call at the office of
the committee on appointments in
room 102 Tappan hall, between the
hours of 1:30 and 3 o'clock, excepting
Yale: A summer camp for Yale
men under the required reserve of-
ficers' age is being urged by Professor
McCabe, who is in charge of a battery
of the training corps. The men would
be ready in a short time to take com-
missions in the army and navy and so
should be trained, according to the
Illinois: Seventy-five students with-
drew from the University of Illinois
in one day to enter the reserve officers'
training camp at Fort Sheridan. The
number leaving is increased daily.
Indiana: An aero science club has
been organized to study bomb throw-
ing, aerial photography, wireless teleg-
raphy, the gyroscope, and engines.
The members will probably enroll in
the government aerial corps if needed.
Washington: tuns have been is-
sued to the faculty training squad and
the manual of arms will be taken up
immediately. Fifty instructors are en-
rolled in the corps and it is the
"crack" company of the university.
Princeton: Friends of the univer-
sity have presented the president with
a sum of money to be apportioned
among the faculty men whose salaries
are below $3,000. The financial crisis
expected will be the cause of want,
according to the doners' ideas.
Utah: One hundred and eleven stu-
dents have left the university to work
on fares since the announcement that
credit will be given to those answer-
ing the government's call.
