Ann Arbor, Mich., June 1C Tlio next number of the (Michigan Alum nus, which will bo out tills week, will have an article on the needs of the University of iM1chlgan, und an article on why loyal alumni should recognize th-lr duty to the university when they are financially able to do so, and by private endowments provide those things which are u crying need at Michigan. The article says In uart: "One of the joints which was em phasized by President Hutching nnd Deans Reed and Coolev on the recent trip to the west was the neccesslty of an additional endowment and gifts to the university from individuals sup plementing the Income from the state. As "Mr. Hutchins frequently said, 'If the university Is to keep up with the procession, it Is bound at all times td have needs In advance of the ability or willingness of the state to supply.

Ontonagon high school tomorrow night i .it iii mlvmice which nas made in the thought of the church at home In regard to It that "The Church in tho Mission Field" now occupies so prominent a position In the discussion t.f mission questions and methods. It Is easy to recall the time when the work of foreign missions wus common ly regarded by Christian people as the sending of a small, forlorn hope into the midst of great masses of darkness nnd superstition, from which very lit tle could be looked for in return. "Now, happily, the church at home sees further Into the true state of the matter, nnd tho most Important gener al conclusion which we can draw from the replies made to our inquiries in all parts of the world Is that thenceforth this view must be entirely abandoned. In many of the greater mission fields the Christian people are now recognized as a definite community whose 8oeUvlJ4eund WoalSwas well aa their personal faith and character, are i.lready becoming a powerful element in the reshaping of national life. -In short, the church on which we report presents Itself no longer as an Inspiring but distant Ideal, nor even as n tender nlant or a young child, nppeai lug to our compassion and nurturing ,rr. We see It now an actual churcn in being, strongly rooted, and fruitful In manv lands. The child has. in many t.i.icea reached, and in others Is reaching, maturity; nnd is now both fitted nnd willing, perhaps in a few cases too eager, to take upon Itself its full burden of responsibility and ser One by one the report takes up the countries of the world, and deserves the progress which has been made In each. It tells of the FIJI Islanders, who. not many years ago Ignorant of Christianity, are strongly under the In fluence of the church; of the thous ands of Christians among the aborig ines of Australia, the converts from the wild and savage Inhabitants of New Guinea; the hundreds of thousands In Japan who are Christian worshippers; of the church In Manchuria, stui p r "Michigan ha been peculiarly un fortunate through the dissipation t her e'irly endowment of government lands, which were sold by a prodUnl state legislature many years ago at $1.25 an acre, so that the unlvrsdtv now receives but $37,000 from lands which, if thev had been kept to tlin present day, would yield a generous income. Other universities have kept tht.tr state lands Intact and are already becinnlmr to realize large Incomes from them, profiting by Michigan s un fortunate examp.e. Appeal to Alumni "This lack of resources other thsn the support of the stato practically forces the university Into an appeal to trie alumni to Join with the university authors In their efforts to secure pri vate endowments. Through her alumn the University of Michigan Is well known everywhere; nevertheless, while other universities have to a certain ex tent capitalized the Interest of their alumni In their alma mater. Michigan has never done so. Rut the force of circumstance?, the Increase In the number of students, th. new requlr ments which are coming to be ree o.-rnlzed In the university world, make a closer relationship between the al umni body and the university lmper atlve if Michigan Is to hold her plac Some of the Needs Then follows some of the greatest needs the U. of iM. Is facing today, with no money to meet them: An dow ment for the graduate school for some thing like $'.00,000. This money nee.ted for fellowships and research professors, two fields In which the un Iversity is signally deficient The lack of fellowships and scholar shins for worthy students deprives Mlihlgan of many promising student wno receive their advanced degrees ft other universities simply because Michigan can not give them proper assistance, and in some cases, prope Instruction, owing to lack of profes sors who have the time to give gradu ato-courses.
