On October 8, there appeared on the
front page of The Michigan Daily, a
story which told of the erection of a
Turigsten light in the darkest and most
romantic spot in ultra-romantic Felch
Park. The story sketched the despair
of strolling lovers, the pique of the coy
maiden, and the rage of sundry stu-
dents. It concluded with a prophecy
that the life of the lamp would not be
twc. weeks.
Thousands of students read that sto-
ry and mentally expressed sympathy'
for those whom the light drove farther
on their path. Perhaps they raised
their voices and called down united
curses on the foes of Cupid, to whom
this outrage was attributed. But they
reckoned not that a prophet was
amongst them. But a prophet is never
appreciated in his native land.

Yesterday morning there lay at the
base of the twenty foot concrete pole,
two halves of a hefty paving brick,
besprinkled with shining bits of thin
blown glass. At the top of the pole
clung several bits of red baked clay,
a mute evidence of a collision between
brick and concrete, And as for Tung-
sten globe-there was none.
Last night darkness was the most
prominent substance in and about
Felch Park. The casual passerby
could hear soft voices, and distinguish
the rustling of rain coats, but these
noises came through a perfect dark-
ness. Blessings upon the lover of ro-
mance who hurled a well aimed brick!
We predict that the light will be re-
placed in less than a week-but a
prophet is never appreciated in his
native land!

Owing to the outbreak of the war in
Europe Professor Hugo Thieme of the
French department who has been
spending the past year in France on a
leave of absence, has had to indefinite-
ly postpone the issuance of a book
which he was preparing on "The His-
tory of French Verse." Several por-
tions of the manuscript were to have
appeared in publications which have
been suspended, and practically the
work of the, entire year, the greater
part of which Professor Thieme spent
in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris,
has been in vain.
Professor Thieme and his family'
were in Lucerne at the time of the
outbreak of the war, and on receiving
news of the declaration, they hurried
to Basle from whence they entrained
for Paris. He describes this trip as
having been a harrowing experience,
