Issue Editor-Renaud Sherwood
The wearing of the caps and gowns
on Wednesdays and Fridays by the
seniors of the University i a Mich-
-ig-an tradition, and should be observed.
Freshmen on the campus are sup-
~ posed to live up to all the traditions,
and are greatly censured if they do
not. While the cases of freshmen and
seniors are not exactly similar, yet
there is some common ground be-
tween them.
The freshman should follow the
traditions of his class because by them
he is designated as a first year man.
For a freshman to follow tradition is
almost compulsory-and he is a bet-
ter Michigan man for it in the end.
The senior is not compelled to wear
his cap and gown. He is not forced to
let the campus know that he is here
for his fourth year, or whatever year
it happens to be. It is not a matter
for discipline.
But the wearing of the cap and
gown is an old custom, and as such
has grown into a tradition. The sen-
ior should live up to tradition, and
see that it does not die.
In this particular tradition, he is the

only one who can keep it alive for
Michigan. No other classes have the
privilege. So it is really a duty for
the senior to don his cap and gown
on the designated days.
Did it ever occur to you that a lec-
ture was something more than just
sitting in your place and taking notes?
Lectures are something more than
just the bare facts presented in them
by the professor. How many of us
look at our notes after we leave the
lecture room, except when a blue-book
comes around?
What a. lecture should do is to
point the way to something more, to
suggest a working basis for us to fol-
low on .our own initiative. A lecture
-is a condensed account of some plhase
of -his subject, carefully prepared by
the lecturer. It is up to us, if w'
think it worth while, to follow up h
remarks, and find out things that willE
be of interest to ourselves in whatever
line of work we expect to follow.
In this way, lectures can be of ines-
timable value to us. They can be a basis
on which we may build our own in-
vestigations. We can follow them up
in whatever way we please. And by
doing this independent work, we not
only enlarge on the professor's lec-
ture, but we are learning to do things
for ourselves-which is one of the
most important things we have to

(From the North Carolina Tar Heel)
The old idea of education was to
come to college and endeavor by all
possible means to inhale knowledge
from books. If at the end of a college
course, a man knew how J. Caesar
died, the color of Cleopatra's hair,
knew that E. Pluribus Unum meant
"In God We Trust," and could speak
familiarly of evolutionary sociology,
he was the highest product of educa-
This system produced a thing with
a head full of facts, the spirit of a
fish, and with a physique that couldn't
stand a hard winter in the tropics. As
a ruleit parted its hair in the middle,
toted its handkerchief up its sleeve,
preflerred Endymmion to Dead-Eye
Dick, spoke of football as a horrid,
brutal game, and otherwise carried all
the ear marks of the personification
of the sweet essence of knowledge.
In the discussion of the spontaneous
transmutations of radium or the price
of herrings in Africa he could hold
his own, but in anything rougher han
a checker match, he was a lost dog.
There are four sides to every man's
life, the mental, physical, moral and
social. Any man who has developed
along one of these lines at the ex-
pense of the others, has failed to
make of himself a well-rounded man.
Special archery practice will be held
