THE HUNDREDTH MAN
(From The Oberlin Review)
One often wonders, while reading,
just what it is that imparts to every
writer the desire to be the hundredth
man. It is the mental solitude they
crave, or the enviable distinction of
being a rara avis of some nearly ex-
tinct family? How many men write,
with pride distinctively visible even
on the printed page, "Ninety-nine men
out of a hundred would have done so
and so-," with the implication "I
didn't!" The naive confession is de-
licious; but, alas, what melancholy it
imparts to the average reader! What
have I ever done to be a hundredth
man, he asks; and he asks in vain.
Some of us are neither scholars nor
students; yet confess to a sneaking
likeness for books; we are fond of
scenery, yet all trees for us are either
maple trees or other trees; we are
grateful for chicken salad but we eat
hash with cheerful mein; there are
some people we love, yet we hate no
one in particular; we are poor, but
eminently respectable. We are the
people who never flunk nor have a
bowing acquaintance with Phi Beta
Kappa. Life has no glory for us; and
we wonder how it feels to be the hun-
dredth man. Literature is full of
them, but not life. What the ninety-
nine do must content us forever.

A SQUARE ELECTION
t's make it a square election to-
Let's all vote for the best man for
the position, no matter who he is
Let's forget peanut politics and pet-
ty malice, and make this an election
to be proud of.
Let's'not vote for the first name' on
a ballott, simply because it happens
to strike our eye first. If we do not
kiow any nominee, it is better not to
rote at all for that office, than to vote
Let's do the best we can for Mich-
igan. Let's show that we have the
makings of good citizens in us by all

Above all, let's have a square elec-
ZO&ot of us dislike the word "fail-
ire." We say that it will never be
art of our life, that we intend to be
Buccesses, and that failure will never
eater into our vocabulary.
,But a good failure is much to be de-
sirdd. We will never appreciate suc-
eess until we have known failure. If
e have never known a failure, we
have never known what it is to be
spurred on to greater effort, we have
ever known what it is to grit our
;eeth and determine to win at all
If we have never known failure, we
ave not achieved real success. Noth-
hg is more unfortunate than to sue-
eed to quickly and too easily. If
wr success is reached without strug-
;Ze or fight, therecIs something lack-
ig. We .will begin to think that we

he heights because of our. over-
whelming superiority. And that will

Lincoln didn't stop at his first fail-
ire-the failure to go to school. It

earn. One of the Mayo brothers fail-

essors told him he would never make
doctor. And the Allies had to suffer
rushing defeats to make them fight
ill the harder for victory.

About this time of next year the
high school senior may be studying
diligently all about antonyms and
learning how to play "tick-tack-to."
The reason is that he may have to
pass a psychological test as well as
entrance examinations in order to en-
ter a first-rate college or school.
Columbia university and Culver
military academy are leading the way
in this matter, and other universities
are investigating with a view to
adopting it if satisfied of its value. The
idea is to 'abolish the "cramming"
evil by laying stress on a man's pow-
er to gain further knowledge, rather
than the information previously ac-
quired by one means or another.
This test is not to take the place of
the present examination system but
merely to supplement it. Scientists
agree that if a geneological chart for
each student could be obtained in ad-
dition to the above mentioned tests an
ideal system would exist.
