Straw Hat Day.
Complying with the precedent ob-
taining, The Michigan Daily calls at-
tention to the custom according to
which a day is set apart for the gen-
eral resumption of straw hats.
There are many reasons which
might be set forth favorhig the con-
tinuance of this practice, some of
them weighty. Obviously, matters of
convention, ipso facto, require' a gen-
eral, recognition among those whom
they affect; otherwise every man is a
law unto himself. This unity of atti-
tude usually arises from the accept-
ance of some individual particularly
fitted, as an arbiter of modes, whose
dictates are regarded thenceforth as
the law. Therprocess is comparative-
ly simple thereafter, keeping abreast
with the style. One has but to con-
form to the vein, and he may then
rest peacefully in the conviction that
he is "comme 11 faut" But Michigan,
in is respect, has been sadly defi-
cient. Of late, there has been no one,
even among the young instructors,
with sufficient personality and eclat
to handle the job.
In tue only alternative then, Straw
Hat Bay was instituted by a general
agreement in the first instance. There-
fore in the continued absence of a
high Beau Brummel, the custom must
continue this year, else all the dis-.
comfiture incident upon disobedipnce
and uncertainty with regard to man-

NEW UNION BULLETIN BOARD
PROVES INTERESTING FEATURE
Much interest has been shown by
Michigan Union members in the all-
campus bulletin board that was in-
stalled shortly after spring vacation.
Baseball scores have been received
and posted regularly by the members
of the committee in charge, and no-
tices renewed every day to date.
After completion of the new addi-
tion a room will be built off the main
corridor leading to the banquet hall
and the board will be placed there.
Divans and lounging chairs will be
put in the room, where the bulletin is.
POLISH SOCIETY ESTABLISHES
LOAN FUND FOR ITS MEMBERS.
At a recent meeting of the Polonia
Literary Society, an organization of
32 Polish students, it was decided to
raise a fund from which members of
the society can borrow without pay-
ing any interest, by merely giving a
personal note, and $150 was subscrib-
ed. This loan fund was later increas-
ed by an impromptu collection taken
up at a recent meeting of the Detroit
East Side Polish Merchants' Club.
Requests for money will be sent to
Polish clergymen and professional
men throughout the country, accord-
ing to the plans of the society, and
a campaign will be launched this
month to increase the membership.
Circulars will be sent to all the Polish'
newspapers to advertise the fact that
Michigan is the ideal university for
ried out successfully last year, but
even greater results are expected
from the' efforts of the present year.
SPRING PHYSICAL EXAMS
SHOW FRESHMEN IMPROVE.
All freshmen who have not yet had
their second physical examinations
are urged to sign for an appointment
as soon as possible at the gymnasium..
Most of the first year men have al-
ready been examined since spring va-
cation, and Dr. May hopes to have the
others attended to before this Wednes-
Comparing the recent figures with
the first examinations, Dr. May places
the average increase in all measure-
ments and lung capacity between fif-
teen and twenty-five per cent.
TO HOLD POLITICAL CONVENTION
Four Debating Societies Will "Get
Together" at U. Hall.
The Adelphi, the Jeffersonian, the
Webster, and the, Alpha Nu will corn-
bine to give a "monster" political con-
vention in University hall on May 24.
The four societies will nominate every
candidate from Emma Goldman to
'Teddy" Roosevelt and each expects
to demonstrate the superiior forensic
powers of its members in the debate
which will follow on the merits of the
candidates and .their platforms. The
Adelphi quartette and band w'ill be
used to calm the orators between
