It is the duty of every Michigan man who can
sing to offer the Glee club his services. The or-
ganization is considered one of the most important
on the campus, and it is certainly worthy of the
support of the entire University.
Rep. E. J. Kinig recently made a statement in

WHY NO BLOCK "M"?
igan is to have no block "M" for the Min-
game this year, according to the decision of;
hletic association. And the season of 1919:
rdly be claimed to be a war year. -,
association claims that an "M" would neces-
much additional work. Yet, "M's" have
uch in evidence for many years, years when
rds have been just as crowded as they will
y be this year. The Athletic association has
i out "M's" many times before. It hardly
:hat it would require much additional work
w the same plan that has been followed in
years.
itions at Michigan have always been adheredt
as strictly as is possible, True, many were
the boards during war years, but this year
a a revival of the old customs. Michigan has
"MI" at its big games for many years. This

an does not need "cheap advertising" nor
believe in adhering to "sweet-water college
s," but it can hardly be said that the display
emblem of the University on our own field
called either.
not too late to have an "M." Alumni will
y look for it; too many of the traditions
,hts they were used to have passed away.
chigan men take heed that one of its time-
I traditions be not included in those cus-
legated to the scrap heap.

Representative Fess of Ohio declared the other

No, but it may come to a place where "Many are

The Daily Cub
(Dedicated with apologies to the Illinois Siren)
When the day of reporting is ended
And all of the copy is in;
When the typewriter's clatter is blended
With the linotype's rattle and din;
When they send out the very last stoonr
You whistle and feel pretty gay
For the forms will be locked and Oh Glory--
One-thirty, the end of your day.
You've haunted the campus and bustled
With nary a moment of rest.
You've tramped to the Union and hustled
In giving the paper your best,
You've penciled the proof till you're dizzy'
And batted out copy galore
So you know what it is to be busy
With "Shorty" still yelling for more.
Then comes his most welcome grumble,
"We'll call it a day now I guess."
In back there's a roar and a rumble
Which tells you the sheet's gone to press;
Then you hike without any delaying,
You're weary and sleepy but then--
Tomorrow once more you'll be saying,
"Praise Be-it's one-thirty again."

COMMIT TEE TO END
WORK THIS WEEK
Student complaints concerning their
rooms will be received by George Hur-
ley, general secretary of the Union,
who has been handling this matter,
only to the end of this week. After
that time the students will have to
take their claims to some one .else.
With the mailing out of about 15 let-
ters to students, who have complained,
Hurley will have disposed of all the
cases, which he has received so far.
Altogether more than 100 complaints
have been handled and settled without
any difficulty.
In the majority of cases he found
that the students were in the right, al-
though there were some instances
where difficulty was caused by the fail-
ure of students to get along with their
landladies, and some times the land-
lady was clearly in the right.
After the work of the housing com-
mission is completed this week, it will
start to work after Thanksgiving on
the problems of next year. A com-
plete canvass of the city for rooms will
be made, and a tabulated list of all the
rooms and the prices asked for them
will also be made. The commission will
consider methods by which the situa-
tion may be handled next fall.

'HE WALT WHITMAN CENTENNIAL
'he centennial of Walt Whitman, concerning
>se literary abilities there has been so much con-
rersy, occurs this year.
Vhitman was the originator of that style of writ-
kno'&n as free verse, and which is grossly mis-
I by many insincere imitators today. Whether
itman can be really called a poet has been, since
appearance of his first work, "Leaves of Grass,"
855, a disputed question among literary men and
cs and remains so today.
[owever this question may be decided, the in-
sting thing for every American about Walt
itman is that he tried in the majority of his
ks to portray the spirit of democracy in this
ntry. It was his theory that the United States,
ch had originated a type of government unprac-
I before on such an extensive scale, should also
e a literary style of her own making and not be'
endent on the Continent for her forms of ex-
sion.
'he result of his belief was are abandonment of
old poetical forms and the adoption of some-
g new which he employed to express his main
ne, the virtues of democracy as particularly de-
ped in this country.

Dear Louis:-
Last week I went to a dance with a very clever
man and during the progress of the dance I saw
a wonderful shimmier over in the corner and all
enthusiastic-like I said, "Isn't that girl over there
a wonderful dancer?" And then he comes back and
says, "Yep, she's been put off the floor seven times
this year." What do you think of that?
