M'ilk, Coca Cola
Kick Isn't There, But the Price Has
Gone Up Just the
(By Joseph A. Bernstein)
Students of the University of Michi-
gan are drinking heavily.
In the face of prohibition laws, both
state and federal, the taste for drink
is too much and the thirsty student is
succumbing to temptation.
It is true that students of the Uni-
versity are drinking heavily. Figures,
that never lie, tell a tale of consump-
tion that rivals that of pre-prohibition
days when you could get a drink for
The high cost of living has brought
with it the high cost of drinking, yet
the student defies even this hazard and
will satisfy his thirst.
Gone 'Way Up!
Even though coca colas have ad-
vanced from five cents a glass, and
even though malted milks are bringing
the drug stores twenty and twenty-five
cents each, the students continue to
drink heavily. 1
Drinking, they have found, can be
done very efficiently, despite the fact
that the sizzling hot and powerful sen-.

wallop is missing in these new drinks,

Spirits are lacking on the 'campus.
Both the Oliver Lodge kind and the

kind with a wallop, every man is your
friend.. But if you haven't, said would-

the milder drinks that are served him
at the local soda emporiums.
But the lack of the kick, deters him
not. He continues to drink, kick or
no kick, and he drinks heavily.
Figures gathered at the various drug
stores and the Union soda fountain
bear out that statement.

Sometimes it is the faded things
The worn-out things, the whimsy,
Like tired eyes and grayish wisps
Against your cheek,
Or else a shaky voice in some old
Or thin, white fingers playing ivory
The world is full of mothers!
They seek locked nurseries to lin-
Handling our broken toys;
Lavender-gowned mothers and
And mothers in darned gloves-
It is the faded things that count.
