Reports of Standing Committees. Mr. Wilcox submitted the following report:

We, the undersigned, your committee who visited the College of Mines, make the following report:

We used an entire day in acquainting ourselves with the work this institution is doing, the plant the State has, and the equipment the State possesses. We spent another day in visiting one of the copper mines known as the Champion Mine. We are a unit in our belief that the value of this institution to the State of Michigan, and particularly the Upper Peninsula, is very greatly underestimated. In fact, in our opinion, the future development of this section, more particularly the State's mineral interests, is dependent upon the character of the work done by the College of Mines.

From representative citizens of Houghton, Hancock, and the adjoining communities, we have learned that they place very great value on this institution, and they are of one accord in their belief that the college has done much for that particular community. Many of the devices making it possible for the mines to operate under today's unfavorable condition are due to the work of these graduates. As near as we can learn, the leadership at the present time in all of these mines is furnished by graduates of this institution. A larger number of students should be enrolled and obtain the advantages here offered. The overhead expense at present is too large for the proportion of students served in comparison with what it should be if the student body were materially increased, for the product of this school undoubtedly furnishes the leadership in the communities where the student locates.

We would recommend a campaign of exploitation to particularly acquaint the prospective student material with the advantages here offered, as there is, in your committee's opinion, a very decided lack of appreciation for what this college is able to do for the student. The fact that those whom this institution serves is given the technical training so necessary and in addition thereto provides the practical application as a result of his efforts in the mines under proper direction, and unfavorable supervision produces an ideal condition for the student desiring the technical training offered by this college.

We would further recommend that their budget be allowed for the amount and in the manner asked for by the college,
