Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
As a graduate of the university in
1106, now returned to take a supple-
mentary course, the 'writer has been
much interested in observing the
changes that have taken place in uni-
versity life and ideals since he was
last there eight years ago. That most
of these changes are for the better is
clearly apparent, notably so in the
case of the marking system, with its
incentive to more earnest work in the
class-room, and consequent elevation
of the scholastic course to its proper
position of paramount importance in
It is no case of the "good old tines"
with me. But there is one recent de-
velopment that I cannot see without
irritation, about equally mixed with
amusement. That is the recent move-
ment to "cleanse Michigan athletics"
of cigarettes, betting on games, post-
victory celebration, and, I suppose,
mackinaws, toques, chewing-candy
and other student foibles.
I don't believe in the old "sowing
wild oats" doctrine, or that drink and
license aid in the slightest in the de-
velopment of true manhood. It is ap-
parent to anyone who has observed
modern tendencies. that bad habits or
unclean life are a heavy handicap for
the sti ongest mai to carry. Booze
and the double standard of morals
are doomed in the-we hope not too
distant-future of civilized races.
Every effort should be made to pre-
sent high ideals of personal conduct'
and achievement, and it cannot be
gainsaid that the personal example of
our athletes; with their prominence in
campus .life, would be of great in-
fluence in promoting higher ideals in
But why go about it in the way sug-
gested? Why go back .to the "Rollo"
hooks and New England prurient pru-
der- ?yWhy try to impose by-rules and
regulations, faculty orders and student
organizations' standards of conduct
which are, after all, purely personal'
There is no organization connected
with the univerity, from the regents
to the S. C. A., which is sufficiently
godly to legislate morials for the 6,000
students of Michigan. Such measures
may make a few men, but they will
make many more hypocrites, and Heav-
en knows there are enough of those in
the world, without manufacturingj
them in the universities.
I may be wrong about this. But if

Ask to see me
so, why not extend the movement to
its logical conclusion? Put the root-
ers in the cheering sections in bunches
of twenty, each group to be chaperoned
by some godly members of the S. C. A.
If there is any dearth of chaperones,
there are varions organizations who
will doubtless furnish volunteers. In-
stall clocks in all the fraternities and
rooming-houses, which each student
is required to "punch" before retiring.

badges to "picket" Larry Damm's and
