He Who Rushethl Not.
Once there was a Stude. He
had a 14 Three B Pipe and an
English Hat, and he thought
himself Some Cheese. There
was another Stude who smoked
a Corncob and wore Corduroys.
He knew he wasn't much and
wondered at the Price of that
The Day of the Rush came.
the Cheese decided that being a
Sophomore It would not go to
the.Rush. The Corncob figured
that as he was a Soph, he would
go to the Rush.
Now the Cheese had a Swell'
Dame, who watched the Rush
from the Bleachers. She saw
the Big Doings of the Corncob
and said to the Cheese, who
stood at her side, "Who is that
Swell Guy in the Corduroys?
Ain't he Brave?'
So she got a knockdown to the
Corncob and gave the Cheese the
Icy Mitt. Then the Corncob
married the Swell Dame, and
they lived happily ever after-
Moral: Go to the Rush.

Prof. Hussey is Successful in Re-
Prof. S. S. Hussey, formerly director
of the university observatory, is still
located at' the Universidad Nacional
de La Plata, Argentine Republic. Mrs.
Hussey has recently returned from
the South American country where
she spent the summer months with
her husband. The university includes
scientific courses, resembling the state
universities in this country. The ob-
servatory with which Professor Hus-
sey is connected has been built for
twenty years, while the university
proper is but six years old.
When asked of the nature of Pro-
fessor Hussey's work in South Amer-
ica, Mrs. Hussey said: "My husband

until school closes in June, returning
to South America at that time."
MICHIGAN, BY EAST
Intersectional Games Said To
Help Place Wolverines
THIS YEAR'S GAMES A TEST.
The following editorial, entitled
"Recognition from the East" will ap-
pear in the October issue of the Mich-,
igan Alumnus: .
"That Michigan, by her series of
annual football games with Pennsyl-
vania and other eastern universities,
is succeeding in securing recognitionE
for the Western brand, i. e., the Yost
brand, of football from the easternt
press, is apparent from an article
which appeared in the New York Ev-
ening Mail of October 7. Comment-s
ing on the approaching games withj
Pennsylvania, Cornell and Syracuse,
the Evening Mail correspondent says:
'There had always been a tendency1
hereabouts to take it for granted that
the western game (of football) was in-
ferior to that played in the East,
though the problem had never been
worked out on the field. A series of
Pennsylvania successes over Michigans
tended to strengthen this belief. In1
1909, however, the Wolverines won,
and last year held the Quakers, admit-;
tedly one of the most powerful andc
vesatile elevens in the East, to a no-
score tie. Michigan's success against
Pennsylvania last season and the year
before has done much to create a
growing respect for the sort of foot-,
ball they play on the far side of the

has three successive Saturdays filled
with eastern opposition. Syracuse
plays at Ann Arbor on the first Sat-
urday of the month, the Wolverinesi

on the 11th, and a week following is ati

come to be the biggest game of thel
year for both teams.4

Humorist's Communication in
Daily is Roughly Handled
BURNS A "MAN OF THE .HOUR."
The communication published in
The Michigan Daily for yesterday,
comparing Detective William J. Burns,
a feature of this year's S. L. A. course,
with such men as "Nick Carter" and
"Jack" Johnson, is not meeting with
much favor on the campus. The writ-
er seemed to infer that such a man
as Mr. Burns does not maintain a
scholarly enough standard for S. L. A.
"The engagement of Mr. Burns for
a number on the S. L. A. is perfectly
justifiable," said Registrar A. G. Hall,
when seen yesterday. "I regard Burns
as deserving of a hearing as John
Mitchell who has already lectured for,
the same courses. The latter I enjoy-
Secretary Goddard, of the law de-
partment sees no reason for objectingj
to the engagement of Detective Burns.
"If the writer of the letter in the Daily
had helped assemble' an S. L. A. pro-
gram," said Prof. Goddard, "he would
appreciate the effort required to se-
cure such a 'man of the hour' as Burns.
I believe that a person able enough to,
fill space in McClure's magazine is
good enough for us to hear."1
"Such men as Mr. Burns are alright
in proper doses," said Associate Dean
W. H. Butts, of the engineering de-i
partment. "This man can teach us the1
value of observation, just like A. Conan]
Doyle, and he should prove instruct-;
ive as well as entertaining."
"I regard the communication in The
Daily as a fair piece of banter," said
Prof. R. M. Wenley. "The advisabil-
ity of securing Burns depends entirelya
on whether the S. L. A. wishes to pro-I
vide a course for entertainment, or
Maurice C. Myers, '11, '13 L, once in-I
terviewed Detective Burns for a Min-
neapolis paper. "Mr. Burns seems1
like a well-bred man and does not sug-i
gest the dime novel sleuth," said My-
ers yesterday. "He resembles a pros-1
perous business man in appearance:
and certainly possesses an attractive?

I'm Not in the Whirl.
I shave my neck; I part my
hair in the middle. I wear
"pants" not trousers, and call a
violin a "fiddle." I don't smoke
the pill; I don't know the Var-
sity yell. I haven't a bubble
duster, or even a six-cylinder
smell. I speak plain English not
rah-rah slang. And, although
I'm a pretty good fellow, I don't
suit the college gang; for I have-
n't a hairy hat or a hobbled
girl, and, besides my coat's too
long; so I'm not in the whirl.
When I ponder over my griev-
ances, I find there's something
wrong that hurts. I'm rated in
class 2, compared with mollycod-
dles who should be wearing
skirts. Fate is dealing aces
from the bottom of the deck,-
cheating in a most underhanded
way. At home 'tis said I'm a
youth of "much promise" but

New Field Song Goes on Sale.
"Varsity," the new field song by
Lawton and Moore, has been published
by the University Music House. . The
cover, in three colors, was drawn by
J. H. Meier, winner of last year's op-
era poster contest, and shows a be-
megaphoned cheer leader, starting
in front of the twenty-yard line, with
an Irish terrier for an assistant.
NEW VARSITY SONG WILL
BE FEATURED AT BIJOU.
"Dear Old Michigan," the Varsity
song by C. Arthur Blass, .'12 L, and
Julius Wuerthner, '12 L, will be fea-
tured at the football night program
at the Bijou theater this evening. The
theater management hopes to have
a celebration that will in some meas-
ure take the place of a mass meeting.
