Three human virtues have been se-
lected as the greatest of virtues: hope,
faith and charity. Charity has been
chosen as the greatest of the three.
Christmas is rapidly drawing near.
Charity, for the time being, sways the
human heart and hand. Man gives and
receives, and the man who gives the
most receives the most. Christmas is
a feeling rather than a day.
Twenty thousand Christmas stamps
have been placed on sale in local shops
by the Red Cross committee. It is
seldom that Michigan, the Michgan
faculty or the Michigan student, has
the opportunity to contribute so direct-
ly to the needy, the deserving and the

Tonight will mark the passing into
history of the thirty-third annual
freshman spread. It was in the year
1881 that the sophomore women con-
ceived the idea of entertaining their
freshman sisters at a characteristic
college girl spread. The affair took
place at the home of one of the soph-
omores, where the hostesses, clad in
caps and gowns, welcomed the green
and tender ones with an assumption
of dignity. The following year, the
freshmen, now sophomores themselv-
es, glad to pass the kindness on, and
anxious to go their predecessors one
better, invited the seniors and juniors
as well, who acted as escorts for the
freshmen. As the years passed and
the number of university women in-
creased, the spread grew also, and in
1889 it was necessary to rent Nichols
Hall on State street for the occasion.
About 16 years ago, the completion of
Barbour gymnasium afforded a large
enough place on the campus, and there
the spread had been held ever since
The freshman spread is the one
event of the year at which all the
women of the university have a chance
to meet, chaperoned by the dean of
women, the president's wife, and the
wives of the deans of the several de-
partments. It is the oldest and finest
tradition that Michigan women have
But of late, some of the upperclass
women have been deploring the pres-
ent tendency to make the spread a
formal affair. After all, it is a spread,
not a banquet or a ball, and it ought
to be pervaded by the same spirit that
characterized it in years long past.
if the women of '83 could be present
at this glorified "spread" of ours, no
doubt they would be glad to see that
the tradition which they inaugurated
has so well endured, but would they
not yearn a little for the spirit of jolly
informality that prevailed at their
It is this conviction that has led the
junior advisors to request the escorts
of the freshmen to dispense this year
with carriages and flowers, and to
help in every way to make tonight's
event less formal.
