toms and traditions are easily broken, but the true
Michigan man regards them as he would the most
binding of laws and regulates his conduct to con-
form with their premises.
ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY
An interesting proof of the inter-relationship be-
tween the youth' of France and Belgium and Amer-
ica is evinced by a recent communication received
from Liege. This letter proves that there is more
in the war-time friendships which Americans made
when "over there" than mere name, and that a
certain international unity exists today which may
be more significant than many people realize.
The Cerclz Francais was the recipient of the let-
ter, which reads in part: "A group of students of
the University 'of Leige want to correspond with,
American students for practical improvement in
both languages. Could you find these correspond-
ents ,among your members and friends?"
,The plan is a good one, because correspondents,
will not gain merely proficiency in the language, but
will obtain something of the foreign viewpoint as
well, tending to strengthen the bond that has been
so .recently made between the United States and
the peoples of France. That students of French
in the University may accept this invitation, real-
izing that it is both an interesting experience an
an unusual opportunity, we print the address given
by Cercle Francais - Andre Keivers, 84 Rue de
Liege, Verviers, Belgium.
VULGARITY ON THE CAMPUS
The general feeling of tolerance for vulgarity
that the war brought forth has served its purpose.
The crisis that evoked it, the necessity for imme-
diate artificial sympathy in the face of a national
emergency is past. It is high time that the Uni-
versity resume its character of leader in the march
of progress.
At present an unreasoning infatuation with vul-
garity is flourishing among us.. Offensive profan-
ity and meaningless slang have assumed so impor-
tant a place in our University life that the stu-
dent seems inclined to herd submissively alonag with
the crowd in its shallow ideals of usefulness.
1 Since the war we have given a great deal of at-
tention to 'the revival of formal University tradi-
tions; yet the spirit which underlies them, which
gives them significance, is ,disregarded. This atti-
tude of worldly sophistication which scoffs at re-
fiement, would be readily discarded if we consid-
ered vulgarity in its true light - a menace to prog-
ress and to e welfare of the ,University.

LETICS - MAJOR AND MINOR
iase of the athletic problem which will
ront the University is the question of dif--
)n between major and minor sports. Es-
ince the, war, there has been a tendency

be here when Michigan may have golf,
Dxing, wrestling and swimming teams, and
rhaps, in intercollegiate competition.

'he usual plan in other places is to award
letter'only to major sport teams and so-
for sport insignia to the. latter. Some uni-
however, give the block letter to chain-
teams or unusual performers in minor

A skaed At Random
(Editor's Note-Every day Your per-
sons connected with the University,
either students or professors, are ask-
ed at random their opinioa of some
current topic by the "Asked At Ran-
dom"* reporter.)
Today's question: "Do you think it
would be practical and advisable to
have a political convention -re non-
ducted by the students, similar to the
national ones?"
Prof. Thomas C.: Trueblood: "I
suggested this idea some little time
ago and still believe it would be very
beneficial to the students. We could
have both Democratic and Republican
conventions. The students would rep-
resent various states, give the nomin-
ating speeches, and, ,in short, have
charge of the conventions This
would, besides bringing 'out the 'senti-
ments of :the students, give them a
working knowledge of how national
political conventions are conducted."
Mr. Louis Eich, instructor in ora-
tory: "It seems to me that this would
be a fine idea;' provided both: parties
are equally represented. The occa-
sion would be a lot of fun besides:
being educational."
James Meclintock, '22M, editor-in-
chief of the Chimes: "Yes, this would
prove 4ery educational to the students
2nd I believe it could be, carried out
successfully If care was taken to make
sure that the ,participants wouldn't
make a joke of the whole thing."
Reed Bachman, '20, editor-in-chief
of the Gargoyle: "I am not at all In
favor of mixing° outside politics in
the school, but if thistconvention were
to be conducted entirely by the stu-
dents themselves, I see no reason why,
it would not be practical. As to its
success. I think it would be assured,
if the right men were behind it with
the necessary energy."

Exceptional Values in
Late Model Corsets

T he Teescop

'a.

Well, it's here,, gentle reader. With anxious
eyes we have been scanning the horizon and we take
pleasure in announcing the first
Spring Pome
I wish I was a little rock,
A settin' on a hill,
An' doing nothing all day long,s
But just a-settin' still.

About a year ago we made a purchase of a lot of
corsets for delivery this spring at the price then pre-
varling. Since then the price on this model has
doubled. That is why our present offering is one of
such unusual value.
Starting this morning we shall have on sale at $2.95
each these Elastic Top, Pink Satin Stripe Corsets in
sizes from 21 to 26. Take adVantiage of this sale
as you will save considerable.

I wouldn't eat, I wouldn't drink,
I wouldn't even wash,
But set and set a thousand years,
And rest niyself, by gosh!

His friend (sarcastically)--Naw, he don't know

Tip No. 2 to the Fair Sex
The following is intended more for girls who live
in Cuba, Windsor or other points where a man is
still judged by the condition of his breath. How-
ever, inasmuch as it may prove helpful to those
who are sometimes at a loss to know just how to
extricate themselves tacttiilly from embarrassing
predicaments we have taken therlibertynof includ-
ing il in the course.
If your caller of the evening should be so un-
fortunate as to find out from your best friend that
you were out with another gentleman the previous
evening he will probably approach you in a bellig-
erent manner, saying in the purest of English, "I
seen you out with Joe Thursday night." Seeing as
there is no way of lying out of it you determine to
do the only honorable thing and admit it. Your
male friend then probably comes back with, "le's
your steady, ain't he?" You now placate him by
saying, "Not at all. Joe's only my steady on Thurs-
day evening." This will probably satisfy him. but
men have been known to be so unreasonable as to
say, "'Yeh, but I saw you out with him again grn
Saturday night." To which you reply in your prim-
est and slightly sarcastic tone, "I repeat again, Joe
is my steady on Thursday nights. He ain't never
steady on Saturday nights."
