C. Pardon, superintendent of buildings
Mr. Pardon claims that the yearly
expenditure for maintenance of the
campus grounds goes for naught sim-
ply because students are too lazy to
stay on the sidewalks. He says that
students do not make much better
time by cutting across the lawns, for
at most they could not save over 30
seconds in getting from one class to
another, as the campus is already a
network of walks laid out for the
greatest possible convenience.
"Michigan's campus is yourcam-
pus," Mr. Pardon went on. "Do you
treat it as such? Sheet-metal and
wooden "Please" signs have been
placed about the campus and these
have been deliberately kicked and bent
out of shape until they were unrecog-
'This year the University will spend
$2,000 for improvements on the cam-
pus, in additional to the usual amount
required for maintenance. It is up to
the student body to make this invest-

Did you ever see a mis-placed line
while reading a newspaper? It us-
ually is an unaccountable jumble of
letters, or perhaps the line reads up-
side down, or maybe one line is too
far away from the line it is supposed
to follow. This is what, in newspaper
circles, is called a mis-placed slug.
When it appears in the paper, it
stands out so prominently that it at-
tracts the attention immediately. It
usually causes derision and laughter,
and if the slug were able to feel, it
would feel very forlorn and out of
place in its uncomfortably prominent
How many mis-placed slugs there
are in life! Uow many men have been
mis-placed in the make-up of their
existence! How many are there who
do not fit in with their surroundings,
who do not read smoothly with the
rest of the world!
The mis-placed slug in the news-
paper is the result of carelessness on
the part of the man who corrects the
proof. But no one corrects the proof
of a man's life except the man himself.
If he becomes a mis-placed slug it is
his own fault. It is the result of his

FROSH ENGINEERS PLAN DANCE;
WILL NOT ORGANIZE GROUPS
Freshmen engineers at their as-
sembly Wednesday rescinded the mo-
tion to organize the class into groups
which could be called out to protect
their members from mob hazing, fol-
lowing the proclamation of the soph-
mores to abolish this form of disci-
pline. Organization for the spring
gaines was discussed.
Prof. W. C. Hoad explained the men-
tor system and advised the men to
get acquainted with their mentors as
soon as possible, as they will no doubt
come into contact with them after
