IT WAS A SAD, SAD MISTAKE
BUT SONNY NEEDS THE MONEY.
"It was all a mistake!" How often
have those pleading words been ut-
tered to his honor. The austere judge
usually says, "Humph! D and D, eh?
But herewith we have the pleasure
to present old wine in new bottles.
The wine, or rather the spice of life,
is authentic. The clipping was mailed
to ye ed of this sheet bearing the caus-
tic and derogative exclamation "Oh."
Owing to the fact that the powers that
he will mayhap read this commentary,
we cannot express our sentiment, for
a diploma is a pleasing air castle.
Mere words are not necessary. But
we venture the opinion that the hero
of the tale of two cities, picked a
mighty poor place to go on the night
of the celebration, for Dr. Fulda lec-
tured in German, the Y. M. C. A. ha*
open house and the psychopathic ward
is always fantastic in the moonlight.
But we must cease, pass verdict upon
the letter and whisper comments to
your best friend.
Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 16.-Dear
Old Dad-Somehow or other the De-
troit papers got me mixed up with
some one else and published my name
in the list of students arrested for dis-
orderly conduct last night. It was all
a mistake, for I went right home from
the game and went to bed soon after
supper, as the wind made me sleepy.
So if you should happen to see my
name in the paper you'll know it was a
mistake. I hate to ask you for money
so soon again, but could you let me
have $50 by return mail? I need some
books, some shoes, and an overcoat.

J LIT SOCIAL COMMITTEE
PLANS CLASS GATHERING.
"Breakfa Dance" on December 6
Will Feature Opening
Plans for a successful social season,
have been laid by the social commit-
tee of the junior lit class. Feature
parties and dances will be the order
of the year.
The opening number on the pro-
grain is slated for December 6, when

Tanz," "Breakfast-Dance" or what-
ever one pleases to call it, will be

WORK ON TERMINAL STATION
NEAR GYN SHOWS PROGRESS.
Finishing touches on the concrete
foundation walls of the new power
house terminal station have been ap-
plied. The dirt that had been exca-
vated for the construction work has
been shoveled back around the out-
side of the walls. Large slabs of New
Bedford standstone are being placed
around the cement work that projects
about a foot above the ground.
The size of the building will be ap-
proximately 20 by 40 feet. The east
half has a thick concrete flooring ex-
tending about a foot above the ground,
and will furnish the support for the
machinery that is to be housed.
A new electric donkey, developing
ten horse power, is being used in the
tunnel work. This engine is used to
lower the 30 foot piping and the an-
chors and hanger supports into the
tunnel. After measurements are tak-
en, the anchors and hangers must be
hauled up and taken to the shops,
where they are drilled. Then they are
again lowered into the tunnel and fas-
tened into place. Access to the tunnel
is obtained through five large man-
holes, approximately two by six feet in
surface dimensions, located at var-
ious points along the tunnel.
Homeops Double Last Year's Number.
Michigan's Homoeopathic school at-
tracts students from all over the

treme west and south. More than
50 per cent of the freshmen now en-
rolled have already received degrees
either from this or some other uni-
versities. This year's frehsman class
is 100 per cent larger than last year's,
despite the new requirements, that
have been in force since last year.

Union Property is Better Handled..

Union reading room are being handled
more carefully by members, than a
short time ago, when considerable
trouble was experienced by the care-
less mutilating of the books and pap-

iodicals were stolen or whole pages
Soph Engineers Complete Social Plans

ber 10, and is called a "What is it?"

follow in March,
"What is it?" party will be chaper-
oned by Professor and Mrs. J. P.
Bird, and Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Kenyon.
MARTIANS TRY TO
"In spite of the fact that next Janu-
ary the planet Mars will be the near-
est to the earth that it has been in
several years, I do not think that it
will be possible to determine whether
or not, there exists a race of people on
that planet," said L. L. Mellor, Assist-
ant in Astronomy, recently. "There
have been stories circulated that Mars
hl s been trying to signal to the earth,
flashes having been noted at the Ob-
servatory of Paris and also at the Ob-
servatory, situated at Fl.;staff, Ari-
zona. Mars is envelope.4 in an at-
mcsphere that is almost as thick, as
that of the earth, and it would take
a mirror at least as large as the state
of New York, for any one to pene-
trate through the blanket which en-
velops that planet."
"I have no doubt but that there ex-
isted at some time a kind of life on
Mars, but is seems to me that if any
planet is inhabited at the present time
that it must be the star Venus, which
has been neglected by astronomers for
"The men who claim that they can
see different canals and waterways
on Mars have made a life-study of
that planet, and even then have not
been able to show these phenomena
to their equally learned contempor-
aries. There is a good deal of auto-
