SENIOR SUAL4ESTS CUSTOM BE
FOLLOWED BY ALL OR DONE
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The season is at hand for the wear-
ing of the cap and gown. Yet on last
Wednesday and Friday, days set aside
for this, the gowns were conspicuous
by their absence. Some who wore'
them were the objects of unfavorable
remarks by fellow classmen. As a
senior I wish to protest against such
If the cap and gown is to be looked
upon merely as a means of "showing
off" let us do away with it entirely.
If the cap and gown is to be worn dur-
ing commencement week only,. let it
be so understood and let us not set
aside two days a week for wearing it.
If it is to be an object of distinction,
those eligible should be proud to wear
Personally, whether this tradition is
sustained or discarded is a matter of
no importance. As much can be said
against it as for it. But let us take
one step or the other and not be conr
tent to see a few scattered gowns
around the campus. Tomorrow will
be Wednesday. Let all seniors wear
their gowns or else put them away
until commencement week.

The May Festival, the underclass

able one for visitors. They came.in
droves, saw the froth of college life
and left with many impressions that
might sometime come back to damn us.
The ideas of Michigan that th<"
carried away are not the ordinary
workaday ideas that persons familiar
with university affairs have. They
are the results of a few days of fes-
tivity and showing off, but they are not
so branded. Our visitors left well
prepared to appreciate the hoary jokes
of the life of ease led by the average
undergraduate, and our stories of long

PLAN MEMORIAL DAY PARADE
Annual Procession to Be Featured by
Collection of Floats
Plans are now practically completed
for the annual Memorial Day parade
to be held in Ann Arbor on May 31.
This parade will include several fea-
tures which will be absolutely new
to the Memorial Day exercises, among
them being a collection of fioq.ts. This
latter has been practically arranged
for at the present time.
The parade will proceed up Main
street, Packard, and State streets, and
will be composed of the G. A. R. vet-
erans, machines and the floats already
mentioned. The procession will prob-
ably stop at the county building, where
exercises appropriate for the occasion
will be held, the plans for which have
not at yet been finished.
Wood to Study in Northern County
N. A. Wood, curator of birds in the
zoological museum, will leave today
for Alger county in the northern pen-
insula. Mr. Wood will make a study
of the animal, bird and insect life in
the vicinity. of the summer camp pf'
the Honorable George Shiras, who has
offered it as headquarters for the ex-1
pedition. Mr. Wood will be joined in
a few weeks by Fenton Coombs, A.1
W. Andrews and Wilbur McAlpin, all
of Detroit. The party will remain in
the north about ten weeks.#
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
In justice to myself and office, I feel
that I ought to say that my purpose
in wearing .a freshman cap into a
crowd of sophomores on last Friday
night was not to determine who was
instigating or even participating in
hazing, but to bring to an end an unfor-
tunate incident which apparently could
not be closed by moderate requests.
After hazing several freshmen,'the
sophomores were waiting for the next
freshman to como, and in order to
avoid further hazing, especially in
front of the mass of the Festival au-
dience which was beginning to come,
I put on the cap. It was not, nor is
it now, my intention to do anything
further in the matter.

OPENIN FIELD I S ILLEGAL
PAUL RAMSD ELIL SAYS SUNDAY
USE OF ATHLETIC FIELD IS
CONTRARY TO LAW
Editor, The Michigan Dily:
In Saturday's Daily I stated that the;
question of opening Ferry field on
Sunday afternoons was not one of the
pleasure of the people of the state,
but purely a matter of campus con-
cern. I am now informed, however,
that statutes of this state would make
such use of the field illegal. This be-
ing the case, before unknown to me,
I, of course, would not desire to see
the university disregard the law and
run counter to the registered will of
the people of the state.

At its next meeting, the Board in
Control of Student Publications will
choose a business manager and iman-
aging editor for The Gargoyle. It is
the policy of the board in filling the
positions on the publications under its
control to award them on the basis
of merit to those who have served in-
minor positions on the publication to
which the positions pertain.
It sometimes happens, however, that
no one who has served on the publica-
tion during the year is eligible or ca-
pable of filling one of the leading po-
sitions for the ensuing year. When
either of these sets of circumstances
arises the board finds it necessary to
consider outside candidates. This no-
.tice should not be considered as an
intimation that either of the situa-
tions will arise this year.
i All applications for these positions
should be in the hands of Professor
F. N. Scott as soon as possible aid not
later-than May 24th in order to be con-
sidered. Each application should con-
tain a statement of the experience of
the applicant and should be accom-
panied by the applicant's eligibility
card and any letters of recommenda-
tion which he may have.
