A' MOLLY-CODDLE UNIVERSITY?
One of the Detroit papers has,'in
its society columns every Sunday, a
letter supposedly written by a co-ed
at Michigan to a friend in the metro-
polis. The letter purports to tell of
the activities of the University for
'the preceding week.
These activities, are extremely in-
teresting, according to the letter. They
include all the dances and other par-
ties that take place, and one would
conclude that life at Ann Arbor was
one social event after another. Among
the items mentioned recently was one
telling. of a tea served by a sorority
to "the campus boys."
This ise thesort of thing that the
people of the outside world read about
Michigan. Are they to assume that
our life here is a society one, that we
lead a butterfly existence?
Anyone familiar with college life
knows that the greater part of the
time is taken up with study. Yet in
one of the letters is found the state-
ment that among all the other activ-
ities one must also study, that study
takes up "so much" of one's time,
and makes one stay up late nights.
- The truth is that these events talk-
ed about in such great length and de-
tail by the aspiring society reporter
are but a small part of university life.
Michigan is composed largely of red-
blooded men and women, who are
studying and working to some pur-
pose. Society functions are but in-
If there must be these descriptions
of college life in metropolitan news-
papers, at least let them be represent-
ative. What serious student, con-
tempfating attending a university,
would come to one that seems to have
its chief interests in dances and par-
ties, and calls its men students "cam-
"Soldiers who have married or i-
tend to marry French or British gir
have brought back from Europe a
taste for antiques," says an exchange.
We forgive them the tasto,, but why
should they marry them?
Can you blame us for forgetting to
pay our income tax? It's such a little
item that it is difficult to remember.

after July 1, will be that of the lit

Ye Daily said yesterday that "a mil-
lion and a half women in England are
going to be shy husbands." Just how,
we ask. If there are not enough men
to go around why doesn't some enter-
prising business concern .start up a
male order house.

Flickerings of Rural Life
(From the Clearfield, Pa.,
Martin Johnson, Clearfield's affable
shoeman and batchelor has returned
home from a business trip to Pitts-
burg. Mart says that the art of cam-
oufiage is well developed by the fair
sex in the city and offers a bit of ev-
idence to prove it. He attended a
cotillion in a public dance hall and
was attracted by a singularly good
and young looking lady. When Mart
had nerve enough to ask her for a
dance she told him she was married
and had two grandsons in the old
Perpetuate With Pictures.
Uncle Sam perpetuated his war activities with Pictures.
Big Business perpetuates its developments with Pictures.
Families perpetuate their members with Pictures.
Why Not Perpetuate University Life
Why nothave a snap, or flashlight, of the "Bunch," the "Dance," or
the hundred and one other things that occur at "Michigan?" Nothing
tells the story like a Picture. They make delightful souvenirs that will
be cherished long after other things are forgotten.
You know, or if you don't ygu can find out for yourself, that Lyndon's
Flashlights and Groups are in a class by themselves. Many have tried and
are still trying but none have succeeded in approathing them in quality.
I am telling you this but don't take my word for it, be your own judge.
Now it's a simple thing to get these pictures; just call Lyndon, and he'll
get them, night or day.
Please get your or in before 8 P. M. for evening.
