In tne second place, How does a man acquire
knowledge of these activities so that he will not be
wasting time-in "chasing something he knowsnoth-
ing 'about?" The handbooks which are given all
first year men are designed to supply to some ex-
tenut this knowledge. But for 'the benefit of the
entire campus, a series of explanatory articles writ-
ten by men at the head of the various activities has
bleen designed to meet the very need said to be lack-
ing. These articles are appearing each month in
"Chimes," the all-campus magazine, in order that
they may be treated more exhaustively than would
be possible in The Daily.
But it has been found that,, in spite of this set-
ting forth of campus activities, there still remain
students who do not take an active part that is at
all in proportion to their abilities. For example,
it has been found that there are men of consider-
able dramatic ability, who fail to report for dra-
matic club activities in spite of thecalls for try-
outs. And the most patent example of this very
situation is supplied by the present athletic ques-
tion which undoubtedly owes much of its serious
aspect to the fact that men of ability fail to report
in spite of every inducement.
It was with the idea of overcoming this evil that
the Union last fall, introduced its system of classi-
fying students with regard to their interests and
abilities,. It was a tremendous step towards reme-.
dying a condition that exists on every college cam-
pus in the country. That the plan will succeed when
it is put into full operation, it beyond doubt. But
until this system of calling upon men directly for
their services can come into full running order, it'
will be necessary to depend upon placing the activ-
ities before students and appealing to their enthu- I
siasm to bring response.

Our idea of a ghastly joke is one we pulled the
other day. A lady friend of ours who has a taste
for literature asked us how we liked "LOOKING
BACKWARD." We told her frankly that we
didn't like it because we were doing this in our
exams and the prof caught us and threatened to
flunk us.
"Who could paint her charms," the poet cries.
"She does herself," her chum replies. .

Remarks that only a bonehead would have
flunked those exams

And stoutly maintains that there are worse
fellows in the world than profs
Then you know that he feels pretty sure that he
passed those finals.

Oursr Daily Novelette
Out of those two hundred girls at the Union
dance that Saturday night she was easily the most
distinguished looking. Yes, among tllat galaxy of
lovely womanhood she stood pre-eminent, an un-
crowned queen holding sway by that most fickle of
things-Beauty. She was the cynosure of all eyes;
men and women accorded her the admiration which
is always due effeminate perfection.
Standing over in the doorway was the lucky man
who had brought this wonderful creature. Yet
strange to relate, a shadow lay on his face-Trou-
ble's disfiguring hand had been laid on his youth-
ful countenance. . "Yes," he answered in reply to
my query, "I am troubled." Just then his eyes hap-
pened to light on the form of his girl and. the look
of troubled apprehension flared up sttonger than
ever in his eyes. '
And then in a burst of sudden confidence he con-
tinued, "I'm afraid that girl of mine will get into
trouble with the Secret Service." I started back as
though I had been struck, sharply across the face.
I gazed again at the girl's face which seemed to
mirror and reflect nothing but goodness and purity
and innocence. Could it be that under that beauti-
ful exterior beat a black and worthless heart? "The
secret service," I echoed in a bewildered way. He
shook his head and then answered in "a voice vi-
brant with regret, "Yes, I'm afraid that some day
the Secret Service will discover that she's a coun-
terfeit doller."J. W. K.
