ered when the cards on whlch the
students had stold of newspaper and
literary experience were read over.
One student tells that he has written
many short stories. The only trou-
btie, however, was that he could not
get any of them published.
Another student writes that he has
had wide newspaper experience, and
he is familiar with everything about
a newspaper office. *But he goes on
to say that he himself can not do
much. It was his brother who was
the editor of the paper.

Choral Union Lays Plans for Mixer
Members of the Choral union will
join in a "Choral Union Mixer" on
Saturday evening, March 6, at the
School of Music. An intersesting so-

dancing, cards and other games. Mr.
Philip eBatty is chairman of the com-
mittee, on arrangements.
A truth over which I was pondering
of late was well expressed in Sun-
day's editorial reprinted fro the "Pur-
due Exponent." The quotation from
"The Nation" deserves the reflection
of every intelligent person on the
campus. There is a tendency, partic-
ularly in the professional schools,
"to shape the head to fit the hat."
Dormant inclinations go to waste in
the breathless rush to keep up with the
prescribed curriculum. Nor de all in-
dividual courses offer an equal source
of interest. One often finds that the
awakened interest in a subject must
give way to soiething that is more
immediate, albeit more drudging. And
is it wholly justifiable to cast thorns
of blemish at a senior because he has
forgotten some fact that was pound-
ed into him in his freshman year, but
which he, for lack of interest, failed
What the University of Michigan,
and any other institution of learning,
for that matter, sorely needs, is to
follow the example of the University
of Columbia in offering the students
an opportunity to work up some field
of knowledge in which they are most
interested, whether it would exceed
the requirements of the ,professional
school in that subject, or, whether it
would partially distract the atten-
tion from other, but more mechani-
cal and arbitrary tasks. One would
find, if allowed to expand his do-
mant interest, that he would not cram
his cortex, aday before the exam-
inations, with undigested'food, just
in order to "get by", and forget it the
next day. One ,would find that every
bit of knowledge gathered, through
voluntary and conscientious effort,
would become part of his stock and
store, a bank account ready to be
drawn upon at any given moment.
I can make no definite suggestion
tending to remedy the superficiality
of our knowledge. Perhaps the pre-
vailing method of tgaching is the re-
