CAN YOU AFFORD TO?
The desultory hazing of the fore
part of the week has assumed both
proportion and organization the past
two nights. Those who have been stag-
ing the entertainments might very well
take counsel before they lay further
Three years ago, the University au-
thorities placed hazing, in all forms,
on an unqualified black-list. This
course was adopted and an old tradi-
tion taken up by its roots only after
the underclasses clearly demonstrated
their inability to maintain it as an in-
stitution without resultant injury to
the university. The first year of its
enforcement witnessed the dismissal
of two sophomores from school. An
attempt to enlist student sympathy in
their cause gave evidence of the desire
of the thinking element to stand by
the ruling, and entreaties to the state
executive proved as futile. In the fall
of 1910, small amounts of hazing of
an ugly kind cropped out, and upper-
classmen took upon themselves, with-
out solicitation, the duty of ferreting
out the offenders, thus vindicating the
action of those who enacted the law.
After all, horseplay is rather too an-
tiquated a way of expending surplus
energy, to be worthy of a place in An
age which boasts of progressiveness.
It is rather the possession of the child
than of the youth near to maturity.
There are so many better and more
worthy ways of giving vent to effer-
vescence that will not down.
In view of this recital of facts, you
can make yqur own decision. If you
wish to risk the hope of a college train-
ing for the sake of a few hours of fun,
which to you may seem harmless, that
is your privilege. But if you lose we
predict a fruitless search for relief of
sympathy. Can you afford to?
-ROBERT MORRIS GILLETT
Early one morning last July a two
weeks' battle against fearful odds
ceased; an overburdened,rworn-out
lad was given a rest; and with that
rest a Michigan man of the highest,
truest, type passed on. "Bob" Gillett
had too many friends, was too good a
student, and was too much interested
in the best class of university activi-
ties to need comment. His high ideals
and careful workmanship are going
to be as much missed by The Daily as
he himself will be by his friends. To
his parents, and to those nearest him,
the sympathy of The Daily goes.
Though his death terminates a life of
great promise, it has left an influence
which will find its fulfillment in the
lives of others.
Michigan may be justly proud of
her many graduates who have made
a name for themselves in the world,
but she should be more than proud of,
a man who has been able to make
life count, thoughcut off at a period
when most men can look back over
their lives only with regret for years
wasted in trifling.
De Palma and Oldfield may think
they go some once in awhile, but they
never led the devil-may-care life of
an Ann Arbor motorman.

Today's Beauty Hint.
No true gentleman allows the hair
to grow scuffly-like on his neck. If
troubled with this affliction, the fol-
lowing simple prescription will aid
you. Go to any antique shop and buy
a guillotine. Place the head near
(preferably not under) the knife, and
switch on the current. All scruffliness
will be removed.
Yes, but did you hear about the fresh

In the absence of a 100-year-ago col-

Mr. Peter Okkelberg, instructor

with two specimens of an exceptional-

number of frogs, toads, and snakes.
These animals were captured by Mr.
Okkelberg, while spending his vaca-
