crowd out its realities in the prep
We can all form some kind of an es-
timate of just what it would have
meant in our own cases and from just
what blunders we would have been
saved during the first few weeks of
our freshman careers, if we had pos-
sessed a trustworthy and vital source
of information beforehand. The nec-
essity for some form of hazing arises
from this lack..
And while a single copy of The
Daily would undoubtedly fail as a sub-
stitute for the freshman Bible, a gen-
eral familiarity with The Daily for
several years will not only bring
more men to Michigan, but will bring
them already fairly started on the road
to becoming Michigan men.
The experiment involves added re-
sponsibility for The Daily and for the
student body which is at once its au-
thor and subject matter. Student op-
inion and student journalism which
appear in the paper are now being
observed with interest by thousands
of youngsters who may later become
identified with the University. The at-
titude of criticism without concentra-
tion assumed with complacence by
some students now becomes more than
ever out of place. If a story in The
Daily is inaccurate or dull, it is a mat-
ter of import to every student, and in-
sofar as he done nothing to make the
st@ry otherwise by active effort or
constructive criticism, it is his fault.
The Daily is trying to represent the
University and it needs support from
all of the University to be truly and
"Branding Broadway" is the name of
a new photoplay. It is about time so
some of the hide was burned off that
thoroughfare if what some of the gay
young blades returning from their va-
cations say is true.
"Why," queries the frosh, "accuse
us of breaking traditions? None of us
sit on the senior benches these days."
Proving that the thermometed is
mightier than the paddle.
The same word, but the meaning is
different, when the ex-S. A. T. C. speak
of their unies. They don't come that
way in the army.
Victor Berger says he is fighting for
liberty of speech. He may now tell
that to the warden. About all he can
ever say with that gentleman's con-
sent is: "I beg your pardon, Mr.
Spruce up, girls, the S. A. T. C.
checks are in the mail, and there are
still roses for sale.
The following casualties are re-
ported today by the commanding gen-
eral of the American Expeditionary
Forces: Killed in action, 52; died
of wounds, 33; died from accident
and. other causes, 2; died from aero-
plane accident, 1; wounded slightly,
5; missing in action, 9. Total, 244.
NO PROBATION LIST MADE
OUT UNTIL EXAMS ARE OVER
No students have been put on pro-
bation this year. After examinations
the probation list will be made out,
but up to the present time no delin-
quent students have been notified.
The reason for this is not the unusual
superiority of the students this year
but the fact that matters of greater
importance have so occupied he time

has been forced to neglect the proba-

Too little attention has often been
aid to the need .of making University
pirit tangible to the boys and girls
rho in a few years are to become the
pholders of it. Courses of study have
een carefully arranged in the high
chools from the college preparatory
oint of view, and the attainments of

ove-tailed more or less neatly into
he requirements placed upon the col-
ge freshman; but often the more dif-
cult task of imbueing young Seven-
