es had sung in the springtime, we
heard or saw little. Only a few seemed
to know them. We believe that the
seniors miss something by leaving
them out of their program. We believe
that in these songs is contained much
sentiment and tradition that should not
be lost to future classes.
. There is no time for reform like the
present and few classes so well equip-
ped to institute a much needed reform
as the present seniors. Of course this
is only January and balmy May is a
ong way off but we know that few of
the prospective graduates know the
Michigan songs. There is plenty of
time between now and the "sings" in
which to get out the little worn "blue
book" and learn those songs. Let us
have some real college sings this year

An Editorial Resignation.
It is with genuine regret that we
announce the retirement of Walle W.
Merritt from our editorial staff. The
press of many duties and wide connec-
tion with various activities makes it
necessary for Mr. Merritt to relinquish
a position in which he has done work
of great value to The Daily, and we be-
lieve, of value to the university. A
man of broad training and unusual
ability, he has been on the campus a
longer time than any other man active
in student activities. His mature judg-
ment and wide experience lent great
weight to his opinions. We wish to ex-
press our appreciation of the services
he was able to render.
Cold and Carriers.
Inclement weather has caused much
trouble in the distribution of the Daily
for the past week. The extreme cold
makes it practically impossible for the
carriers to fold the papers without
freezing their fingers and high. winds
have swept the papers off the porches.
The management desires that the
listribution be as perfect as possible.
We endeavor to employ the most capa-
ble carriers obtainable, but if they fail
to distribute the papers properly we
desire to know about it so that errors
may be corrected and new men secur-
ed if the present fail to do the work
efficiently. We request, however, that
some pains be exercised on windy
mornings to determine whether the
paper has not been blown aside from
its usual resting place.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1912.
Night Editor-C. Harold Rippler.
When we were freshmen they told
us to sing Michigan songs. We faith-
fully invested in the regulation blue
book of college airs and speht lots of
our spare time trying to learn some of
the better known airs. This we did
because it was the proper thing to do
and because others had done so before
us. We thought it best to get an early
start for those senior sings we had
heard so much about from the men
who returned home with degrees pack-
ed in their trunks. For three success-
ive years we attended the senior sings
and applauded faithfully. Yet all of
them were disappointments. We heard
the latest ragtime hits, some parodies
on the same, and a few of the opera
airs, surmounted by the "Yellow and
Blue." These comprised the reper-
toire of three classes. Of the good old
Michigan songs, which are full of the
college swing and sentiment, and
which preceding generations of class-1
"Chan" Boucher, onetime mogul
around our campus, now looms forth at
Harvard where he is soloist for the
Crimson mandolin club.
Yet We Can't do Without Folz.
Dear Ed:-We can't think much of
your paper if you allow a man on th 4
staff who is cruel enough to have in-
nocent Persian lambs killed just to
decorate the neck of his coat.
Had your head examined yet?
Our notion of no kind of a job to
have is carrying the Daily these morn-
ings and then having to face those who
lost their paper because the wind
whisked it over the side fence.
FIFTEEN YEARS AGO TODAY.
