GET A GRIP WHILE YOU'RE
A vacation of 17 days, one of the
ngest Christmas recesses which
chigan students have ever had, be-
ns tomorrow night. The strain of
work, and uncertainty has made a
good long holiday vital to the welfare
of everyone In the University; faculty
and students alike need it. Young
minds and bodies recover vitality
quickly under the influence of change
and recreation such as we will all
get diting the holidays 'at home, and
New Year's should find most of us as
right as tops and eager to come back
to a Michigan which will make almost
as fresh a start Jan. 7 as it ever has
made in October.
But recuperation in the sense of
absolute respite from thought was not
the only purpose for which this vaca-
tion was intended and may very well
be used. This is not an argument for
loading up the old suit-case with text-
books which will never be "cracked"
from one end of vacation to the other.
If you are well acquainted with your-
self and are reasonably sure that you
can hold to your purpose to make up
some work at home, that is one thing;
but, if as is most probable, you know
by experience how slim the chances
are of getting anything accomplished,
don't try it.
Just promise yourself one thing and
then stick to it. Some time before
coming back to Ann Arbor, take a
couple of hours off to think. First
consider your University life as a
whole, the friends and associations you
are making, the proportions of time
that you are putting into work and
play, the attitude you find yourself
getting into toward the world in gen-
eral, the ideals you have unconscious-
ly been forming this fall. Try to
chart the main currents which are
carrying you along. Then think about
your work itself, reflect on what you
are getting out of the courses you
are taking, what possibilities each one
contains for your self-development or
the attainment of your life-purpose.
If these appear small, face the ques-
tion as to whether the fault is yours,
the instructor's, or the nature of the
subject. Look at the problem of get-
ting more out of your work detached-
ly and as one which is perfectly solu-
ble. And almost invariably it is, for
honest and optimistic thought cannot
help but bring clear conclusions and
inspirations for action.
"Getting a grip" in this way will do
more toward straightening out what-
ever tangles await you, than gallons
of midnight oil burned while you might
be enjoying the best of holiday fun.
And it means a very small expenditure
of time and will-power, for what more
interesting subject for meditation can
be conceived than self-past, present,
and future? Try it and see how dif-
ficulties melt and disappear before the
poise which comes of knowing where
you're going as well as that you're on
