Editor of The Michigan Daily:-
I trust it may be permitted one
whose first interests are in Ann Arbor,
even though he is not at the moment
a student there, to express through
your columns his opinions on a sub-
ject that should be of immediate con-
cern to the campus at large.
Let me preface what'I have to say
with the- remark that I spent last Sun-
day- and Monday in Ann Arbor. Would
I were gifted with the epic genius of
a Homer! 'Tis near a profanation to
treat in less immortal phrase of the
gentleman whose abilities I should
like to celebrate. I mean the janitor
of Tappan hall. He has achieved the
impossible. He has lifted up Olympus.
He has piled Pelion on Ossa. He has
established a drinking fountain, an un-
assuming but a perfectly acceptable
drinking fountain, in the arid wastes
of Tappan hall. With instruments no
more formidable than a few inches of
rubber tubing and a short piece of
string,'but with an inventive genius
and an energy unrivalled in the history
of the university, he has pointed the
'water supply of Ann Arbor (such as
it is) toward Heaven, an'd the thirsty
may now be refreshed. I salute him.
During the three years that I was in'
Ann Arbor the editorial column of
The Michigan Daily lifted its -voice in
frequent but vain protest against the
absence of suitable drinking facilities
in the campus buildings. The adminis-
trative officers of the university seem-
ed unmoved by the appeal, and one
was almost forced to the conclusion-.
teat they were not dependent on Ann
Arbor's water for the quenching of
their thirst They did set up a foun-'
tain in University hall; but this foun-
tain itself blushed for their niggardli-
ness and durst not, though it would,
flow freely for any length of time. It
was left to the janitor of Tappan hall
to put to shame the brilliance of the'
campus, and to make the name of his
calling (who shall say it is less?)
henceforth a badge of glory. I com-
mend the phychologists to a study of'
his mental processes, and the respon-
sible officials of the university to an
imitation of his most aAmirable'activi-'
ty. Yours respectfully,

For a last farewell tour of'the sea-
son, the university musical clubs will
make a trip to Detroit 'a week from

arranged for that evening under the
auspices of the University of Michigan
Club of that city. Both the glee and

gram which will include many of the
special numbers so successful on the-
Pacific coast trip.
The concert promises to be one of
SUFFRAWISTS HOLD BIG RALLY,
Mrs. Jenny Hardy Tells .of Women of
"Women are their sister's keepers"
said Mrs. Jenny Law Hardy, formerly
of New Zealand, at the equal suffrage
rally held in the High School' 1.11
last night.. "During the first ten
years of suffrage in New Zealand many
important acts were passed, among
them the eight hour law for women,
the bill against absentee landlordisn,
old age pensions, and the wage bill.
In 1890 New Zealand was bankrupt,
today it is the richest country per cap-
ita in the world."
Mrs. Mary L. Doe, of Bay City, gave
the history of the Michigan Suffrage
Association and told of their struggle
with the legislature and the voters.
The meeting last night was part of
'a state wide campaign which is to be
launched this spring and. summer to
secure votes for equal suffrage -hen
the question comes to a vote in of

Kenneth Westermann andl
Bromley are the soloists. The glee
club quartette, composed of Kenneth
Westermann, Burleigh Jacobs, How-
ard C. Porter and Edward Kemp will
also furnish some' numbers which
proved a feature of the "J" Hop con-
cert. Nor will the "Barber Shop"
quartette, Henry Spring, Kingsley
Gould, Glen Codman and Campbell
Trible, fail to render their poular se-
lections which they brought back with
them from the west.
UNION CANVASS IS A SUCCESS.
Committeemen Secure Many Life Mem-
berships During Vacation.
Judging from incomplete returns of
the canvass which was conducted by
undergraduates during spring vaca'
tion for Michigan Union life member-'
ships, fully ten per cent of the alumni
of the last five classes who were ap.
prOached, took out the memberships.
It has been impossible to tabulate the
results because a large number of the
committeemen have just reported with-
in the last few days.
Practically every town in Michigan
was allotted to students, and a large
number of the other cities of any size
throughout the country were worked.'
Committeemen who have not yet re-
ported are asked to fill out the cards'
that were given them and hand them'
to Homer Heath at the Union on Sat-
urday. The results will be compiled'
and the promises that were given in!
a number of cases will be followed
