The exceptions are, therefore, all the more staring.
For instance, the attendant who became angry
when an eapplicant for a book of short stories would
not accept two large volumes of a continued work,
might be an example. She acclaimed that the num-
ber was the same as that given to her on the slip
and that the applicant vfas entirely to blame. This
man qiuckly observed, however, that the decimal
number was not at all the same as he had asked. He
noticed afterward that this attendant often tried h--r
same tactics on other people-who usually became
confused and accepted her verdict.
It is surely true that the student who has decided
to study should not be discouraged or hampered
by those whose duty it is to aid him.
Perhaps one of the finest things ever mentioned
to a great student assembly was voiced at the Pep
meeting Tuesday night. In regard to serving: the
University, and in defining the Michigan spirit, a
speaker said-"Submerge self." That is a dire test
for the ambitious man; is he doing a thing for his
own good, to inflate his own name, to create a little
hero-worship among his 'immediate associates? Or
has he been found willing to serve in humble ca-
pacity because he emulates the thing he serves?
Every notable man in the world would probably.
say that success rests upon a foundation of hard
work done in obscurity and never rewarded-much
of it done without thought of reward. And to such
men personalities are unbearable.
At the University there are a number of activi-
ties and the suitable men for them cannot always
be singled out. In offering one's services the atti-
tude should always be that of one with something
,o give, not onecoming to capture a coveted posi-
tion. Work, not personality, should be the recom-
"Submerging self" does not necessarily mean quiet
-acquiescence to eyerything that happens. Indepehd-
en e is part of the Michigan spirit. Why succumb
to the dominating individual just to gain a lazy
truce and a little popularity ourselves? To the con-
trary, radical interest in a cause makes a. selfish
motive vanish when the welfare of that cause is at
There are many rules ,and theories that aplv

is a truismino matter what the line of activity.
"Reds take Kief"-newspaper headline. A head-
line that would arouse much more enthusiasm in
this country would be "Reds take Arsenic."
On The Othr Hand
The Bells
(As Poe would have written it today)
Oh, those bells !
What a world of melody their jingling makes.
Jazz! Swift, undulating, darting, persisting-
Like trench mortars in a boiler factory.
Bells ! Bells of iron, brass, or mayi wood.
They bang,
And clang-
Like tiny dishpans slammed with broomsticks
