practically assured by the proposed mentor system
for men. This would give first year men who
would not otherwise have anyone to take an inter-
est in their welfare, an opportunity of meeting men
about the campus, of learning the traditions of the
University, of getting into campus activities, and of
really entering into college life and securing a start
that will make their four years here among the busi-
est and the happiest of their life. As a means of
helping the freshman and completing the work of
democratizing the entire campus, the new system of
upperclass mentors should be welcomed by the en-
tire student body.

THE SENIOR GIRLS' PLAY
The abandonment this year of the traditional
Senior Girls' play will undoubtedly be a disappoint-
ment to the many alumnae who will be in Ann Ar-
bor the latter part of the month. For years this en-
tertainment has formed an important part of Com-
mencement week. and has been enjoyed not only by
the visiting graduates but by the University as a
The 1920 class has accided to give up the idea
of having a play for several reasons, the principal
one being a lack of time to arrange an adequate pro-
duction. The summary dismissal of such a tradition
really demands a more acceptable explanation, for it
is unlikely that the classes of previous years have
been less busy at the close of the semester. More-
over, the social which will be offered more or less as
a substitute for this event will not replace the play,
for it can be enjoyed by only the seinor girls and a
few of their friends, while the play would be open
It is to be hoped that the action of this year's
class will not set a precedent as regards the observ-
ance of this tradition. Past performances have
shown the custom to be worth continuing and the
class of '21 should revive it next year in order that
it may not pass out of existance.
SUMMER SESSION FACILITIES
Because of the congestion in various depart-
ments at the present time, it is difficult for students
to arrange their work as they would like to. Often
it has been impossible to secure classes under cer-
tain professors because of the abnormal situation,
and in some cases desirable courses have been neg-
lected. The Summer session offers the student an
unusual opportunity for taking work under the di-
rect supervision of a picked faculty. It gives him
the advantage of freedom from the cramped condi-
tions that now prevail in the two semesters of the
academic year. The summer is an ideal time for
intensive study. By enrolling in the Summer ses-
sion, the student ,insures a more perfect continuity
in his work, he sustains and increases his inter-
est, and actually practices an economy in tim6.
In view of the fact that a year saved will mean
much to many men who are now in school, it seems
that everyone should seriously consider attending
Summer school this year. This is the opportunity
for men who lost time during the war to make it
up, and it is a valuable short-cut to graduation for
every enterprising student.
