BRICKS OR BRAINS?
If it is true that less than ten per
cent of the professors in the Univer-
sity are able to live on their salaries,
then there is something radically
wrong at Michigan.
In the last few years we have put
up a number.of new buildings on the
campus. This is a good sign. We
should have adequate facilities. But
we should rem'ember that we must
also have the men to preside in these
Many of our best faculty men have
left simply because they could com-
mand more money elsewhere. What
is the good of fine buildings if we have
not the big men? A university is
noted beause Qf its faculty. Are we
building a university of bricks?
Michigan has been unfortunate in
not having endownments. Other un-
ivesities,. through the generosity of
wealthy men, are able to erect beaut-
iful buildings and pay adequate sal-
aries. Not being endowed, except for
a few isolated cases, we must make
the state appropriation put up our
buildings and also pay our salaries.
Consequently, the latter suffer.
It the appropriations of the state
were larger, larger salaries could be
paid. To make the state grant larger
appropriations, the taxpayers should
be brought to realize the importance
of the University, and be made to
take more pride in it. At present, the,
University is viewed as asort of nec-
The University should be placed in
a different light before the taxpayers.
They should be made to see that high-
er education is not a fad, but a vital,
We want new buildings-we need
them. But we also want salaries that
will enable a fair sort of living. A
university of bricks is pretty to look
at. But auniversity of brains is the
one that will command attention and

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
In regard to your editorial on a

and the men on the campus I would
like 'to say that democracy at Michi-
gan can be emphasized more by dis-
cretion than the so-called "Dutch
When a man invites a girl to the
theater he thinks that it is necessary
for him to buy the best and most ex-
pensive seats. He forgets the all-
important fact that his presence be-
side her will make her forget al
about the seat she is sitting in, un-
less it be behind a post. The average
girl at Michigan does not expect men
to pay exorbitant prices for theater
tickets. More invitations could be ex-
tended and more fun enjoyed if the
men would get over the silly idea of,

The Ballad of Hard Luck Henry
You know these Yukon eggs of ours-
some pink, some green, some blue-
A dollar per, assorted tints, assorted
The supercilious cheechako might
designate them high,
But one acquires a taste for them and
likes them bye and bye.
Well Hard Luck Harry took this egg
and held it to the light
And there was more faint penciling
thathsorely taxed his sight.
At last he made it out, and then the
legend ran like this-
"Will Klondike miner write to Peg
Plumhollow, Squashville, Wis?'
The lassie gazed at him a space, her
cheeks grew rosy red,
She gazed at him with tear bright
eyes and tenderly she said:
"Yes, lonely Klondike miner, it is true
my name is Peg,
And also true I longed for you and
wrote it on an egg.
My heart went ont to someone in that
land of night and cold;
But oh, I fear that Yukon egg must
have been mighty old.
I waited long, I hoped and feared, you
should have come before;
I've been a wedded woman now for
eighteen years or more.
I'm sorry since you've come so far,
you ain't the one that wins;
But won't you take a step inside, I'll
let you see the twins." -Service.

Dear Louis XVI: -
Aussi, permettez moi to say that one
of the greatest aggrevations that con-
front homo-kind on this vale of Bevo
is the chewing of gum at any mis-
cellaneous gathering. I know a gentle-
man who went to a movie and when
he wished to leave, there was what
he called a strange affinity, but what
I called a piece of gum, between his
garment and the seat. I surely would
hate to tell you what he said. He was
a fat man and swelled up pseudo-
majestic like and he said, "By GUM!"

And she placed her ear o'er his heart;

As she practiced her medical art.

She r+,ldn't locate the site of his pain
For hi !7;trt was in his mouth.
