to Pass you.
Although we are moved to rejoiceo
editorially over the passage of the
"blanket tax for athletics," smile at
the tribulations of the "Big Eight," an-
ticipate joys of an auditorium that
now seems assured, congratulate our-
selves on the impending joys of the
Diamond Jubilee, mourn the loss of a
disappearing faculty, and occupy our-
self with other congenial tasks, we
_ cannot escape the shadow of the ap-
proaching examinations. Like other
campus citizens the members of the
Daily staff must take examinations
and we find it necessary to sing our
swan song for the semester as our
final act before ceasing our editorial
labors to face the ordeals to conpe.
Let us wish each other good luck, all
possible cheerfulness, and success.

GODDARD SAYS LAW LIBERATES
WOMEN FROM RESPONSIBILITY.
"Surveying the whole .field of the
law's relationship to woman, though
it may have some inequalities, yet on
the other hand it has gone far in fa-
voring her, far beyond what it has
done for man," said Prof. E. C. God-
dard of the law department in an ad-
dress before the Detroit Federation of
Women's Clubs Friday afternoon. In
support of his point, Prof. Goddard
cited the English divorce laws as an
example. Touching on the question
of equal suffrage, he said; "Voting is
not a privilege, but a duty under the
law, so the law has not deprived you
of a privilege but spared you the re-
sponsibility of a duty."
Illness Keeps Dr. Van Hoosen Away.
Illness was the reason given yester-
day for the failure of Dr. Bertha Van
Hoosen to appear before the Women's

MUSIC AND DRAMA
"The Girl of My Dreams."
Jos. M. Gaites' most pretentious of-
fering of good things comical and mu-
sical, John Hyams and Leila McIntyre
in the delightful play "The Girl of My
Dreams,"' will be the attraction at the
New Whitney Theater Friday and Sat-
urday, February 2 and 3, with a mat-
inee Saturday. John Hyams, one of
the stars, is exceptionally clever. It
is impossible not to laugh at and with
him. Leila- McIntyre, as the demure
little Quakeress, has made a Idecided
hit, dancing and singing her way
In addition to the bright up-to-date
and breezy fun supplied by the au-
thors, Wilbur D. Nesbit and Otto Hau-
erbach, there are many distinct novel,
ties of stage-craft. Karl Hoschna's
music is all catchy, and the number,

In regard to the current rumor that
Dean Cooley is a possible candidate
for governor on the democratic ticket,
he said, "I couldn't accept the nomi-

NEW SYSTEM OF SPELLING
ADVANCED BY OLD ALUMNUS.
Professor Scott, of the Rhetoric de-
partment, has received a pamphlet
from a former Michigan student, which
sets forth the elements of a system to
take the place of the present alpha-
bet. Everett W. Fish of Glenn Everett,
N. Y., and a student here some time
in the sixties; is the originator of the
new idea. He proposes a system call-
ed the "syllabet," which does away with
*letters, and which he claims "is so
simple that a child of eight years can
learn to read all human language in'
from ten to twenty hours." It is only
one of many similar ideas which are
set forth. before Professor Scott dur-
ing a year but which are of no practi-,
cal value because their authors are,
strangely lacking in a knowledge of
