Baby week was Instituted for two rea

Dri Butler Says New
Type of University
Responds to Needs
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler, president
of Columbia university, addressing mem
bers of the , University club at noon,
eferred to the new type of American
university aa an institution which Is
progressive and. responsive to the social,
political, economic and industrial prob
lems) of the country.
"This new type of university represents
the best ideas of the universities of Ger
many, France and England, and has
broadened into an institution of greater
catholicity than the universities of
Kuropc," said the doctor.
"Forty, or fifty years ago our unlver- '
sltlea closed their doors, to branches- of ! .
learning which were taught in schools ' aua
of specialization, but gradually there
evolved an Institution where all the
branches or specialized training .were in
cluded. Pome cities in England have
followeor the American university idea.
The spirit of our university is to render
service, to enlist men who are leaders
in thought, research and investigation. ;
Our university is progressive in the very
best Bense. It stands for scholarship of
the highest type," continued the Colum
bia president. ''
Dr. Butler was introduced by Victor
Hoscwater, who said he might In truth
introduce the speaker as financier, odi- ;
tor and university president. I

Elinor Glyn, in "The Career of Katherlne
Bush," which develops rapidly in the April Cos
mopolitan, gives you in intimate detail the pic
ture of one English girl's life.
And Elinor Glyn has the courage and the
power to write so that you are actually in the
room with the people of her story.
Every whiff of haunting perfume every
flutter of dainty lace has the exaggerated value
that it has in life, for a bit of ribbon has over
thrown an. Empire.
"The Career of Katherine Bush" is terribly
real, terribly human; it gives you a picture of
British smart social life that explains much.
Besides all of which
It's enormously entertaining.
