have locked up but we do insist that
no moral or literary censor be ap-
pointed. We heartily agree with Dean
Cooley that when a man arrives at a
man's estate, he should be allowed to
"take his things straiht." This does,
not consist of an expurgated edition of
any book, intended primarily for use
in the nursery. The entire attitude of
the authorities is wrong and we be-
lieve that Fra Albertus was right when
he said, "How can we expect .to de-
velop lions when we allow the lion
cubs to be trained by emasculated
lions and lionesses?"
Start Good Custom.
The members of the Michigan chap-
ter of the debating fraternity are to
be congratulated upon introducing a
new custom at Michigan. The idea of
celebrating Memorial day by having
some big speaker here is just as fitting
as the celebration of Washington's
birthday by the senior law class. Me-
morial day has a deeper meaning to
the country than a day of pure pleas-
ure and we are glad to observe that
some organization has taken up the
matter seriously and is planning to
celebrate it in a fitting manner.
-Most of us are prone to forget the
real significance of this day and look
upon it as a holiday to be whiled away
in the most pleasant and agreeable
manner possible. The deeper mean-
ing of the day should be fittingly cel-
ebrated in some way or another. We
cannot all place flowers upon the
grayes of soldiers and sailors but we
can help in other ways. One of these
is to help to inaugurate the custom in;
troduced by Delta Sigma Rho.
DECENNIAL CATALOGUE OF

Work on the decennial catalogue of

^-ressing and Prof. I. N. Demmon, the
oditor, expects that the book will be
ready by Commencement Day. The
catalogue will contain the names, ad-
dresses, and occupations of the living
alumni of the university and the names
of the deceased alumni as far as can
be obtained. It will also have the
