ACTIVITY AND "SPLURGE"
Activity, is usually connected with the idea of
"splurge",-the noise of publicity and the lure of
prominence. Likefthe proverbial frog and the
puddle nany people think that a leap is made just
to make a splash, 'that the active individual wants
only to be heard and noticed. So, inactivity is often
condoned as modesty, or reticence, or unpreten-
tious reserve.
This is one of the false ideas that permeates our
life. Anyone looking for a moment behind the
scenes will see the superabundance of work to be
done and will realize thpat the most efficient man
makes the least "splash" in doing it. Recognition
of his effort is a trivial circumstance, a'thing al-
ways erratic, a thing to which he does not pin his
faith. Just as the best things in history were done
in obscurity and without much thought of reward,
so in the university the big man is seldom really a
self-honor seeker.
After all, the self-satisfied are 'those who ignore
the oars and merely drift. Selfishness is more often
expressed by the lounger than 'by the climber. It is
a false sense of things that would lull multitudes
into the lethargy of the Rip Van Winkle sleep.
About io per cent of the students at Michigan are
participating in activities.. Where are the remain-
ing 90 per cent?
The best part di colegiate training may lie in the
matter of learning to accept either success or tem-
porary failure in a manner creditable to one's self.'
Student activities promote this spirit more than any-,
thing else inside of university walls. A neophyte'
soon learns to appreciate the magnanimity of men
who leave him out of where he does not "belong."
Far from anticipating the "splurge" he soon learns
the emptiness of it and faces life expecting to find
less but wishing for a great deal more. Kipling
put it well-,-"Hear you, old peoples,-we have done
nothing in the world. All our work is to do; and
it shall be done, old peoples."

I heard something real clever the other evening.
I was in the Campus Lunch and a man came in
and ordered soft boiled eggs and the waiter opened
one and asked the man if he wanted the other one
opened and the man looked sort of funny and saint,
"Open the window instead." And then the waiter
said, "What's the matter, didn't I cook them long
enough?'? and the man smiled and glanced at the
festive hen fruit and said, "Yes, but you didnt
cook them soon enough."

- gain cf21 per clock-tick
since 1917
ATIMA'S big gains are mostly among men
who like the Turkish tobacco taste but who
tire of the over-richness of too much Turkish.
One way of proving this is to point tothe
fashionable clubs and hotels of the country.
Until a year or so ago these places had little
call for any but straight Turkish cigarettes.
Today at nearly all of them, East and West,
Fatima is a leader-at many of them, in fact, the
largest seller.
If you wantjust enough Turkish, try Fatimas.
NOTE: Fatima contains more Turkish than any
other T'erkiah Blend cigarette,
