Wear Your Caps and Gowns.
The senior classes, following time
honored custom, have decided to wear
academic garb on certain days of ev-
ery week until Commencement. This
decision, while expected, is none the
less to be commended because it adds
a certain academic and scholarly air
to the campus, that is lacking before
To make it worth while, it is nec-
essary for every member of the senior
classes to wear his or her cap and
gown upon the days set apart for this.
It is a duty and should be faithfully
performed. It would be very easy for
the faculty to assist the senior classes
by calling upon such students as they
know to be seniors who are without
cap and gown. This would have the
greatest effect upon the recalcitrants.
The fact that several faculty members
have expressed themselves in favor of
this ought to serve as an excellent
Straw Hat Day.
Saturday, May 18, is Straw Hat Day
at Michigan. It is up to the students
to make this event a big thing. Sat-
urday morning the' spring contests
take place at Ferry field and in the
afternoon the varsity track team will
meet Syracuse in a dual meet. Both
morning and afternoon make it possi-
ble for a large number to appear to-
gether in brand new spring headgear
or to get busy and have the old one
Keep Off the Grass.
There are enough sidewalks on the
campus to make it unnecessary for the
student to take short cuts across the
grass and wear unsightly paths
through the beautiful green. Use them.
When they wear out, the authorities
will probably replace them. it is im-
possible to replace grass that is worn
away by constant passage and it is
impossible to make anything grow in
our clay soil after it has been tramp-
ed hard by many feet. Keep off of the
grass and persuade your neighbor to
do likewise. It all helps.

TALK BY HARVARD PROFESSOR
Prof. Theodore W. Richards, of Har-
vard, lectured yesterday on the new
theory of "Atomic Compressibility,"
before a large audience of university
officials and science students. Dr.
Richards traced briefly the philosophy
and history of physico-chemical hy-

differs from the generally accepted
notions, and bringing forward exper-
imental evidence to bear out the as-
sumptions of the newer hypothesis.
