Those Ann Arbor Sidewalks
(A 'Frothful Apology to the Old Oaken
How dear to my heart are the walks
of Ann Arbor
Extending all over the campus and
With snow, slush and ice they are -al-
ways found covered
In order to make the young student
We slipped there and stumbled, and
backward we tumbled
And fractured the walk with the back
of our head,
We cussed then, we swore then, we
let a roar then
And wished that the
walks were dead.

SUMMER SESSION CATALOGUE
FORWARDED TO RELIEF BUREAU
Upon the request of Regent Junius
E. Beal, who is now in New York
City, Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the
summer session, is sending a number
of the new summer session announce-
ments to the Michigan bureau of mil-
itary relief in New York City.
The bureau, which is being main-
tained by the Michigan war prepared-
ness board, is the headquarters for all
returning Michigan state troops who
pass through that city. As many form-
er University students are among
them, these summer session an-
nouncements are intended to give in-
formation to those who expect to re-
turn to the University.
WAR GREAT INSPIRATION FOR
ALL THEATRICAL PRODUCTIONS
According to W. A. Brady, producer,
the world war will furnish the theme
and inspiration for theatrical produc-
tions on both the speaking and mov-
ing picture stages for several years to
come. He declares that there is still
a wonderful fund of material on hand
and that the theatergoing public is far
from tired of war plays and pictures.
"'THEOPERA OF OPERASd
No More Beard
For Senior Mredic
With the advent of safety razors
and other appliances essential to fac-
ial beautification, retrogression has set
in among the senior medics. No longer
do the medicine men in the last se-
mester of their residence at the Uni-
versity grow luxuriant beards as they,
shun the shops where.white-aproned
cut-throats dexterously apply the'
shears and razor.
No one seems to know why the
doctors have abandoned the practice
started by one of their own number
in 1906, but "The Rise and Fall of the
Moustache" has indeed been enacted
in University life.
The most successful time in the his-
tory of the medics' facial foliage dates
shortly after the inception of the
idea. In 1908 the seniors were so well
disguised that it was a very difficult
matter to select the handsomest man
in the class of '081V Economic ef-
fects of the agricultural experiment
were also visible in the falling off of
trade at campus barber shops.

MICHIGAN'S SOLDIER MEMORIAL
What kind of memorial is Michigan
going to erect for her soldier sons
who died in the war? What sort of
monument will be built to commem-
orate the achievement of those who
gave their lives that "that nation
That some testimonial be erected is
unquestioned, but as to the form it
will take, much difference of opin-
ion is bound to be expressed. It is
not a question to be settled without
much thought, both on the part of
the campus and on the part of the
alumni who will be called upon to
furnish the greater share of the mem-
orial fund, should the subscription
method be followed.
Suggestions entertained . by other
universities include the building of a
university theater, of a companile
with chimes and a bronze tablet bear-
ing the names of the soldier dead, of a
hospital, or of any building that could,
suitably be dedicated. Of these var-
ious suggestions, the campanile or the
campus theater would probably be
most desirable for Michigan.
Whatever form the memorial shall
take, it should represent Michigan at
her best, and it should be as beautiful
and as lasting a tribute as the lives
of the men for whom it will stand.
YOU 'KNOW HIM
Among the various types seen on
the campus, we have the student who
always puts his feet on the seat
ahead of him. Hee is very careful as
to the position of these feet-they are
generally securely reposing on the
coat-tails of the one in front.
There are several reasons that may
be advanced for ,this phenomenon.
The student may be tired, and this is
his way of resting his feet. Or he may
be simply vicious, delighting in annoy-
ing others. The most plausible ex-
planation is that he is an agent for
some clothes-cleaning company, and
is doing his best to earn his salary.
The Bolsheviki are buying cats for

country will now have to use some
other animal for experiments.

The write-up was all right and
praised the artist to the skies for his
wonderful work as truly he is one of
the greatest if not the greatest ever
heard in this vicinity, but in some
manner in the line "None of the num-
bers were too hard for him to play"
an "i" got into, the word "none" in-
stead of an "o,' which made the sen-
tence read "nine of the numbers were
too hard for him to play.'
