Editor Michigan Daily:
In common with other Michigan
men I have been greatly pleased to
hear of the efforts being made by
Michigamua and other organizations
to stir up a more active college life
at the University. The editorials in
the Daily, too, calling for college cus-
toms and the like, have been of the
right sort. May I make a few sugges-
tions along this line in your columns?
Class life is the foundation of col-
lege spirit and there are few men at
Michigan who have not realized how
loosely our classes are held together.
The departmental division of the Uni-
versity is partly responsible for this
and it will be remembered that last
year a well known alumnus and mem-
ber fo the faculty emphasized the im-
portance of doing away with the dis-
tinction between the lits, laws, medics,
and dents. How to accomplish this is
the problem. It is not likely that the
barriers raised by years of active hos-
tility could be at once broken down
but every effort should be made to
bring out the class as a college unit
and to retire the department to the
shelf. A Michigan man should be
taught to give his loyalty to "Naughty-
blank," irrespective of what depart-
ment he may be registered in.
The movement in this direction may
be begun in several ways. First, the
men of the same class in all depart-
ments should adopt a distinctive head-
gear which should be worn the greater
part of the time and should serve as
a means of introduction between the
classmen. This headgear should be
of such a design that the women of
the University could wear it as well
as the men-or at least could adopt
something very similar. I have in
mind a system of headgear that could,
no doubt, be easily improved upon but
which may serve as a suggestion in
this case. It is as follows:
For freshmen who are in their first
year at the University, the preentj
gray cap. For freshmen who havI
passed at least one year at Michigan
or two at another recognized college Sw eaters and
or university, a light gray felt or cloth
hat with a blue band bearing one nar-
row yellow stripe.Sw a r et s
with two narrow yellow stripes on
For juniors, the same hat with one 25 % OFF
broad yellow stripe.
For seniors, the same hat with two For a Short Time Onl
broad yellow stripes, until, the swing-
out. After the swing-out, the cap and
By the use of such a distinctive
headgear, it would be easy to tell a $5 Ones for 4 2
man's or a woman's class at a glance
and a bond would be created between
the students of the same year. At $5.00 Ones for - $3.75
the same time the hat with the blue
band and yellow stripes would serve
as a "rooter's hat" at football games
and other athletic contests.
The second means of promoting Colors White, Gray, Ma-
class spirit I have in mind relates to
athletics. We all admit that our roon and Navy.
sports are most potent in stirring up
enthusiasm. It is also a well-recog-
nized fact that our present class
teams do not furnish athletics worthy
of a fresh-water college. Why not, FOR SALE AT
then, abolish the present system of
class teams and substitute All-Fresh-
man, All-Sophomore, All-Junior and l
All-Senior teams in football, baseball
and track? Give them good coaching
and class numerals in yellow and blue.
The result of such a system is easy -e-,-
to forsee. Willy-nilly, the most fan-
atical law or lit would be compelled
to forget departmental distinctions and
'esented a real class and not a fac-
tion. In addition, the quality of our B A I

class athletics would be greatly im-
