FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1914.
Night Editor-Howard R. Marsh.
Dancing as a craze seems to have
out-lived its popularity in Ann Arbor.
Those who attend parties nowadays do
so, apparently, because they really like
this form of sociability. What is more
important, they do not emphasize the
absurdities in dancing to anywhere
near that extent which called forth se-
rious objection several years ago.
Dancing has gone through a process
of rationalization, and locally it now
stands in something like its proper as-
In the meantime, the world goes on
whirling through new steps, and plac-
ing a ludicrous stress upon the types
of dancing. And in smaller colleges
and western colleges, there is still
more or less of a mad scramble to beat
one's neighbor to the acquisition of a
uniquely-named step, without much
regard to the grace of pleasure of the
performance. Evidently Ann Arbor
has had its fill of the naughtiness of
the dance; it is now enjoying the mod-
ern steps more for what they are, than
for their ill-scented history.

THE LITTLE SCHOOLMASTER
"It's a Long, Long Way to Tipperary."
Just as in the Spanish-American War, "A Hot Time in the Old Town"
became the favorite song of the American soldiers, in the European war,
a popular ditty has become the favorite war song of the soldiers of the Allies.
"IT'S A LONG, LONG WAY TO TIPPERARY" has sprung into world-
wide popularity. It is whistled, sung and played everywhere.
We also have "Tipperary" on the Victor Record, both as a song and
a band number.
