Early' in the spring, when the ground 'was still
hard and old paths made their appearance from un-
der the snow, there might have been some excuse
for doing some absent-minded crosscutting. But now
that "Keep to the Walk" has been dinned in our
ears and preached to us for months; after grass has
been planted and ground plowed up in an attempt
to bring the campus back to the beauty which it
could boast before the building stage set in; after
the buildings and grounds department had issued
every kind 'of warning from the printed notice to a
threat of fencing the campus off in iron railings
- after and in spite of all these considerations,
there is still a deaf-and-blind society whose mem-
hers regularly, every day, plod on over new grass,
over, newly seeded ground, without regard for the
appearanie of the campus of the University.
All kinds of plans have been suggested, froh
that of presenting every heedless crosscutter with a
tag of the "'Lost Motion" club to' the suggestion of
making every student sign a pledge to keep 'to the
walk. College students ought not to have to be re-
minded again and again of the results of such a
habit. The actions of those who continue to use
the Lawns for their, peregrinations seem to argue
one of two things :"either the offenders are lacking
in every-day; ordinary common sense,.or else they
care nothing whatever for the good of Michigan.
Keep Off the Grass!
A successful boycott is not accomplished in a
*day. Neither is it easily rendered effective. It is,
a task that involves sacrifice, not for a day or a
week but for a period of time which 'continues un-
til the price of the. articles boycotted is appreciably
Two weeks have passed now since -we. gave the
old clothes movement its initial impetus. No doubt
there was not a man nor woman on the campus who
did not intend at that time to do his or her part to-
ward making the movement a success. But, the
question arises, is it a success? Will it continue to
have as strong a. hold on students as it had during
the first few days?
Entirely too many of us hold to the attitude
which says, "Oh, well, let the other fellow do it;
I ,have been wearing old clothes all this year. I
don't need to make any change." Such an attitude
.as this will never lower the 'price of clothes. What
is more, new suits are appearing on the campus
daily. Everyone seems to be mad with the desire_
to appear a little better than the other fellow. If the
"Old Clothes" movement is not given the undi-
vided support of every man on the campus we.can
predict only an' ultimate failure.'
Some fraternities -have given suppoi-t by mak-
ing the 'matter of formal dress optional at their
spring house parties. This is a step in the right direc-
tion, and we can never hope to attain our goal unless.
every student will thus sacrifice his own personal
interests in consideration of the common good.
