SINvCE ESTABLISHMENT OF 'U. OF
1., CUSTOMS STREN THENED
(By Pem Har11
As early as 1841 when the Univer-
sity of Michigan was formally in-
augurated and the original freshmen
class of six verdants matriculated, the
institution began to acquire a distinct
individuality. One by one certain cus-
toms and precedents were established
which came to constitute the category
aofvenerated traditions, crystallied in
fthat characteristic trend of thought,
expression, and purpose - Michigan
Although necessarily neglected dur-
ing the time of war, the more typical
and well established customs are again
observed and are surviving the period
of transition and change. The more
serious traditions are returning in-
tact, the more frivolous slightly al-
tered. Michigan spirit is still pres-
ent, broadened and dignified in pro-
portion to the extraordinary and
grave individual experience of the past
Scholarships, Accepted Cati
Viewing scholastic supremacy as
the ever accepted goal about which all
traditions have been woven, there is
now preserved in these old customs
and precedents a rather complete cat-
alogue of the developed ideals of the
Anyone who has been in Ann Ar-
bor in early June and has witnessed
the night at Observatory hollow when
the big bonfire illuminates the wind-
ing line of yearlings being transform-
ed into sophomores, has seen and felt
the most impressive of all Michigan
traditions - Cap Night. The splendid
fellowship displayed on this occasion
combined with the annual swingout
and class sings of the parting seniors
may be taken as examples of a loyal
comradrie just as the devout impres-
sivenessof the great convocations may
be said to typify Michigan in a mood
of reverence and dignity.
Such concrete representations as the
Union, the Student council, and other
timely and active campus organiza-
tions show the ever present spirit of -
progress and democracy which has it-_
self become traditional.
The recognized need of some re-
laxation from steady application to
academic pursuits and the subsequent
adoption of an athletic program, pub-
lications, the Union opera, and even
the J-Hop itself, all now traditional,
denote a broad and well balanced
The monster mass meetings, the
spring and fall game, Black Fridays,
the code of laws for freshmen, and
countless other of the customs that
are commonly brought to mind by the
word "traditions," serve or have serv-
ed their varied purposes. They are
constantly changing in some degree to
meet new needs with the specific aim
of uniting more firmly that great body
of students already so well suited for
a natural unity.
In this manner present Michigan
Spirit is constantly stimulated and to
Michigan's future are handed down
the most striking opinions, doctrines,
and practices of Michigan's past.
Eighty per cent of the guests in
1916 came from the state of Michigan.
