When you've stayed out of class for
about a month because it made you
tired in the knees, but you've decided
to try to recuperate in the month left
before THEY come around, and you
succeed in hauling yourself over to
that place where the class used to
meet about last Thanksgiving time,
and there are a lot df people there-
with one or two familiar faces, and
you learn from questioning the girl
next you that it's the same old class,
all right, and you stay around for a
while and gradually the fact seeps in
upon your puny brain that all those
days you thought you were "cutting"
back there in December, the old man
had been giving bolts, and now that
you ARE back, they're reading a work
that you dragged an "A" out of last
year - well, it's awfully heartening,

"A Pair of Silk Stockings," which
was so successful on the stage a few
years ago, will be shown at the Arcade
today and tomorrow, with Constance
Talmadge as Mollie Thornhill. Sam
and Mollie, husband and wife are very
happy until a decision is to be reached
regarding the make of car which they
are to purchase. Mollie wants one
brand and hubby the other. It's a trifl-
ing matter to have a marital quarrel
about, but this is just what Mollie and
Sam do. Mollie is obdurate concern-
ing her decision, and Sam, in order td
spite her, takes another young woman
to dine with him, buys her rich gowns
and other finery, and leaves the bills
in a conspicuous place about the
house so that Mollie will discover
them. Meanwhile Mollie purchases
the car against Sam's wishes. Where
the silk stockings come in is shown in
the development of the quarrel.

Michigan's coal pile, nearly normal
in' size, enabled the people of this
state to greet the first days of real
winter in good shape. The threat of a
shortage of coal has passed and the
state has received full supplies of bi-
tuminous coal, and 75 per cent of the
normal hard coal requirements.
Prices, however, set by the federal
government were still high on account
of the abnormal costs of labor, and
transportation. Now, however, coke
which has bcen selling for $14, must
be sold at a maximum retail of $10.75,
according to orders issued by the fed-
eral fuel authorities. Furnace users
have found coke much more satisfac-
