BRING OUT THE FRESHMEN
Only 70 freshmen have signified
their intention of entering the All-
fresh track meet to be held Satur-
day. Considering the size of the class,
this is an exceedingly small nu'mber.
A much larger crowd was expected to
turn out, and a much larger one
Many fraternitie's have taken it upon
themselves to send their freshmen to
the meet, and have offered prizes for
the winners. This is an example that
all fraternities should follow, and in
fact all upperclassmen. If every up-
perclassman would send one freshman
to the meet, the size of the turnout
should satisfy every expectation.
If freshen are lax in affairs regard-
ing their class, upperclassmen are neg-
ligent in acquainting them with the
various activities and trad'tions that
make. for such a large part of college

DRAMATICS AT MICHIGAN
The lack of organized dramtic ac-
tivities at Michigan has often been
felt. The various organizations that
produce plays of one kind or another

There is no general interest taken by
the campus at large. The Union
opera of course is an exception, and
not to be classed with dramatics as
There is no reason for this apparent
lack of interest on *the part of the
campus. Everyene likes dramatics
more or less, and the proper spirit of
enthusiasm is ready to be brought
out, if the proper means are taken.
A plan suggested last year, but not
put into effect because of the unset-
tled conditions, provided for a com-
mittee on student entertainments,
whose main functions were to act in
an advisory capacity to all dramatic
activities, arranging the dates of pro-
ductions, the amount of money to be
spent, the selections of plays, and
This is a step in the right direc-
tion. The formation of such a com-
mittee would tend to bring into closer
co-operation and harmony the differ-
ent dramatic societies on the campus.
A separate dramatic department seems
impossible at present, but some sort of
organized attempt to interest the stu-
dents at large, together with the va-
rious courses given on the subject,
ought to raise dramatics to a, most
important place at Michigan.
I Met Her on the Beach at Waikiki
(A Drama, Soulful and Gushing, from
the Life of One Horace Sweeney)
Beach scene; Hulas, mosquitoes,
palm trees and lettuce sandwiches. in
the background. Wild waves in fore.
I wandered lonely as a cloud'
Upon the golden shore,
I left behind the maddening crowd
To hear the breakers roar.
Ah-near me on the foamy beach
A maiden fair I spied,
Her face was like a ripened peach,
es, soft and dewy eyed.
She passed me near, I felt a fear,
A goddess of the sea?
My breath then stopped, my pulse it
Ye Gods! She winked at me.
My erring heart then stopped a dart
For Cupid laid me low,
Upon the beach I made this speech,
My voice it quavered so.
Soft music, flying fshes and fiddler
crabs playing in the offing.
'As golden beaches break the wave
You dear, could break my heart,
So let me be thy humble slave
And never shall we part."
"No. No," said she "'Tis growing
Wed thee? Not se soon.
For several months please let me wait,
I'll be thy bride in June."
Much pIanissimo, green light, bull'
frogs, fire flies and sand fleas.
The moon had set, a watching star
Alone patrolled the sky,
I held her hand and missed my car,
We finally said "Goodbye."
And as I left her at the gate,
She murmured softly, "I will wait."
Rapid transition of scene. At this
juncture the audience will please arise
and sing "God Save the Queen" while
the orchestra plays.

To dine and dance that night.

ARE WE SELF-CENTERED?
(From the Minnesota Daily.)
In these days of reconstruction and
general waking up, let us not allow
universities to slip through the mill
unground. It would be humiliating to
discover a few years hence that we
were precisely where we had been be-
fore the great war. A recent conver-
sation reveals a condition which, if
true, should be remedied: "I am
surprised at the narrowness which I
fid among university students. I
ha, come in contact with many, and
am ,oth shocked and disgusted to see
that th', breadth of their thoughts in-
cludes only affairs of the campus."
Can this be true? Are we allowing
the fact that M-was at the theater
last night with IL-s' fiance to over-
shadow the starvation of hundreds in
Europe? Or the formation, or failure
of a formation, of a Russian democ-
racy to be lost to view in the tremen-
dous tragedy of not getting a bid to
the next dance? Are our thoughts
hemmed in by the boundaries of the

In our millinery salons will be found smart hats for all-occasions. Especially
at the present time, are we well supplied with tailored hats-the kinds which
college women want for wear with tailored suits.
Our hats for dress wear are also worthy of special attention, but whether for
street or dress wear, our patrons will find that distinctiveness is the subtle qual-
ity which distinguishes Mack hats from the mass of the ordinary.
