Observe New Year
The Chinese New Year's festivities
began yesterday in Detroit when the
Chinese citizens, who have been pre-
paring for the celebration for several
days, opened their New Year.
Since the Chinese republic was
founded their years have been reck-
oned by the solar system, but there
are still many yho adhere to the old
regime. r According to the old way
their years were reckoned by the
lunar system. Celebrations under the
old regime are continued over a
period of 15 days, during which a
continual round of feasts and games
.It is customary for parents to pre-
sent to their children gifts of money
when wishing them a "Happy New
Year." An old dread of unpleasant
subjects gives rise .to the custom of
mentioning nothing but pleasant
things on the first day of the year.
Staying up all night to see their new
year in is just ascommon there as
it i4 here. Large, red candles - are
burned during the first 24 hours and
the wafis and furniture are hung
with red silk draperieg embroidered
with gold letters.

"The war has brought home to
thousands of people the deadly weari-
ness and dreariness of a merely phy-
sical existence, while at the same time
it has been shown how powerful are
great ideas to redeem these herrors,"
said Prof. F. N. Scott 6n Thursday eve-
ning at a meeting of the Classical
Professor Scott, speaking of the re-
vival of the classics to follow the
"It seems probable that within a
short time there will be an increase
in the things of the mind, especially in
all of the modes by which the human
spirit finds expression. This means a
return to the classics. But the classics
are simply the best literature of all
languages, and whether Greek or Latin-
will share in this revival depends
upon the teacher."
Englishi n 4,000 A. D.
After a short introduction, Profes-
sor Scott read a letter supposed to
have been written in the year 4,000
A. D., by a professor of dead languages
at Timbuctoo. This message, which
was sent to a friend of this future
professor, discusses English as a dead
language, the pronounciation of which
has been forgotten. Students are pic-
tured as wandering in a maze of
grammatical rules and making slow
,Fallacy ini Study'
The writer points out the fallacy of
studying this imaginary classic for
the sake of mental training, increased
vocabulary, and a more thorough un-
derstanding of the modern language
of the 40th century. He continues his
portrayal of English as a classic and
states how he, in his youth, had re-
ceived =great , consolation and light
from the expressions of Shakespeare,
Wordsworth and Tennyson.
CAMP CUSTER OFFICERS ASK
LEAVE TO REMAIN IN SERVICE
Battle Creek, Jan. 31.-With their
commands being reduced to a mini-
mum or entirely wiped out, under de-
mobilization orders, many commis-
sioned officers are being transferred
to other commands temporarily at
Camp Custer. Quite a large number
of the officers are asking that they
be permitted to remain in service,
liking the army life and the many op-
portunities it offers.
Authorization has been granted by
the war department for such officers
as can meet qualifications to remain
in the service permanently if they de-
sire. A number of officers were com-
missioned for five years, it is also
AT THE MAJESTIC,
"Come On In," with Shirley Mason
and Ernest Truex is to be seen at
the Majestic theater for the last time
Bryant Washburn takes the part of
a poorly paid clerk in the picture,
"The Way of a Man With a Maid,"
which comes Sunday and Monday. He
falls in love with Elsa Owenson, a
pretty, pert stenographer, but as his
salary was small he had to prod him-
self along to think of ways to get
enough money together to take the
extravagant Elsa out to dinner and
lances. x The effect this has on him
is to make him forge ahead in his
work, while as for Elsa, the moment
that he asks her to marry him she be-
comes economical and tries to save
her lover's money.

Harry Morey in "Hoarded Assets,"
