JUST A WHISTLE
(Ohio State Lantern)
"That man will succeed." said a pro-
fessor of a passing student the other
day, "because he has learned the value
of whistling." And there he was,
walking along with his lips puckered
up, manufacturing the merriest tune.
Every note submarined a fleet of
gloomy thoughts, and happiness and
optimism followed in his wake. That
student was whistling his way through
life, and it's far better than whining
or bemoaning one's fate.
One can't think of mean things and
whistle. One can't be depressed, either,
when whistling. Whistling is an anti-
dote for mean thoughts and a tonic
for depression. Learning the philoso-
phy of whistling means initiation into
the great army of optimists. Try the
cure sometimes. It's a panacea for
any mental trouble. A whistle in the
classroom when everyone is out of
sorts may be impractical from strict
pedagogical standards, but there was
a time when children weren't even al-
lowed to stretch during school hours.
Whistle when you receive your
dean's report and you'll see the light
of day. Whistle when anything else
goes wrong and readjustment will
knock on your door. Just whistle,

Editor, The Michigan Daily
An article recently appearing in The
Nation has called forth a great fund
of humor and sarcasm, from a num-
ber of the University faculty, and, in
fact, from the press of the whole coun-
try, directed at the abysmal ignorance
of the American student in regard to
current affairs. The tendency at this
University has been to place the entire
blame upon the student for this con-
dition. Derisive attention has been
called to the character of the maga-
zines some of us have been caught
reading, and the conclusion is drawn
that the entire student body is not
serious minded enough to keep well
informed on the important matters of
the day. This criticism cannot apply
to the majority of the students on
this campus, as it would certainly go
unquestioned that most students are
here, at this University, for a serious
purpose. But the writer believes
further that the responsibility for our
comparative ignorance of recent
events can be placed squarely upon
our exclusively conservative educa-
In practically none of the numerous
courses offered upon, this campus is
there any current reading assigned
and used for quiz discussion, although
a large number of these courses have
it as their avowed purpose the fitting
of students for the practical problems
of citizenship. These courses derive
their principles from the experience of
the past, and pay very little serious
attention to theaapplication or appli-
cability of those principles, to the

Northwestern, with a $3.00 year-

Owne Fletcher Loses Life in Fall
While hunting with his brothers in
the Jedle Swamp, seven miles west
of the city, Sunday afternoon, Owne
Fletcher, of 828 Brown street, aged
27, lost his balance and fell from the'
tree from which he was shooting,
breaking his neck in the fall. Death'was
Fletcher had been hunting with his
two brothers, George and Roland, to-'
gether with Robert Marsh, and had
climbed up intoa large tree for
shot. He had become numb with the!
cold, and in an effort to change his po-
sition he lost his foothold and fell tos
the ground., Coroner S. W. Burch-
field was immediately notified and I
viewed the body.
He is survived by his parents, Mr.e
and Mrs. Owne Fletcher, four broth-t
ers, Roland, George, Harold and Lee,
and three sisters, Mrs. Michael Scha-
ible of Detroit, Mrs. Victor Sorg and
Miss Katherine Fletcher of this city.
