than its predecessors, and on the whole their con-
duct has been up to par. Very recently a few vio-
lations of a Michigan tradition have been noticeable
among the first year men. The tradition referred
to is the wearing of freshmen toques. The viola-
tions are only by a few members of the class, yet
they necessarily reflect discredit on all its members.
It is regretable that fraternity freshmen have been
among the number, because the upperclassmen of
their group are responsible'for their conduct. If the
practice continues, reports to the Student council
should be made in order to stamp the practice out.
The freshman who refuses to wear his toque loses
more in class spirit than he can possibly gain in im-
agined self-esteem. And the realization of this fact
will come to him at least before he reaches his
THE LOCKER SITUATION
Many reports and. complaints have been circu-
lated of late concerning the continued lack of locker
accommodations in Waterman gymnasium. It is
true that after taking cafe of the largest FreshmanI
class in the history of the University there were few
lockers left for the use of the upperclassmen. This,.
however, appeared to have been no fault of those
in charge of gym work.
Realizing early last fall that there was an urgent
necessity for procuring more lockers, a request was
sent to the.Board of Regents'to that effect. The
board passed upon the request and an order for one
thousand new steel lockers was placed. At the time
it was stipulated that two hundred of these should
be shipped for iminediate use. However the ship-
ment has not yet been received.
In the meanwhile students who are holding lock1
ers which they do not use would help the situation
materially if they would turn in their names and
allow their lockers to*go to men who are out as
prospective track or baseball candidates. Others
having lockers which they use themselves might
double up with some friend or acquaintance. Do
your part to help until present conditions are bet-

-THE HOUSE DiVIDED
M uch as the recent resignationaof Dr. Stouffer is
be regretted, the unfortunate circumstances'
iich made his step advisable are still more to %e
plored. Whatever the merits of the case, it is to
presumed that only the actual'existence of an
ive feud between two departments of the Uni-
rsity can have brought about this action on his -
A humorous sort of mutual intolerance between
e various schools-and particularly between the
>moeopathic and the Allopathic-which .adopt a
Terent point of view on the same subject, is pro-
rbial in 'a university. But that such a feeling
ould be serious seegis inconceivable, especially
ien it occurs among men of the highest intelli-
nce, supposedly above narrow prejudice.
The University; in theory at least, is a single or-',
nism, not a number of separate and individual
ganizations in unfriendly competition. Its unity
s, not,merely in an accident of situation but in its
igle purpose, in which each college is ,assigned a
rt; and a serious internal strife between any of
ese organs endangers the welfare and successful
nction of the whole institution. Through the un-
spected existence of just such an incongruous -ill
eling as this we have already lost the valuable
rvices of a popular man; and while this state of
airs exists, there is the dangerous possibility of
r worse consequences.
Jay Whitleaf Greenier, the bard of Ann Arbor
on the Huron, has again burst into joyous song.
While we will admit that his latest creation does not
quite rival'the "Dickie Bird" in point of sweetness,
we will still stake our editorial- reputation that the,
haunting sweetness of the following will linger long
in the memory of all who read it.
We wandered thru the boulevard,
'Twas summertime, in June;
I said, "You are a ,beauty, dear,"
She answered, "You're a-nother."
The day was bright, the air was fine,'
The'sky clear blue above;
We sat down on a bench and there
I talked to her of-math.
The birds sang sweetly on the boughs,
-The Huron ran in haste;
We strolled along, our joy complete,
My arm around her-books.
The sun was filt'ring thru the trees,
And nothing was amiss;
I watched my chance and when she turned
I slyly stole a-hairpin.

Dear Noah -
Last night I took my lady friend to a moving pic-
ture. A great many students were so rude that they
actually jostled us during the ungentlemanly rush
for seats. What do you think would be a just pun-
ishment for suchconduct? Indignant.
Our blood boils with indignation when we hear
of strong men being trampled on this way by de-
fenseless women (as is so often the case) and we
thing that a fitting punishment would be to chain
the offenders to a tree within a block of the School
of Music for sevral hours in the afternoon.
Statistics show that the Undertaker's Journal dou-
bled its subscriptions after printing the following:
The undertaker's no fighter,,
Yet deny the fact, if you can,
' That he's the kind of a boxer
That always lays out his man.
Speaking of galoshes and girls, far be it from us
to insinuate that a bird smoking a numeral pipe and
wearing a leather coat, horn-rimmed glasses and a
vacant stare is a thing of beauty as he minces along

Today's question: "How much do
you think it should cost for the aver-
age student to go through one year
at Michigan, without working out-
side of school?"
Arthur J. Karpus, '21E, Varsity ath-
lete: "When one considers every-
thing, I do not see why a. student
couldn't completesonewyear here on
between $500 and $600. This would
mean that he would have to economize
considerably, but at the same time it
would not necessitate his going with-
Robert M. Cleary, '20M, vice-presi-
dent of the senior medic class: "Un-
der the present circumstances and
prices it seems to me that a student
needs at least between $700 and $800
a year to live comfortably in Ann Ar-
bor and attend the tjniversity."
Frank J. Helbig, '20P, Student coun-
cilman: "In my estimation it costs
a student about $50 a month here if he
is exceptionally careful of his mone.
However, with an additional $5 a
month he could have a variety of
amusements and outside pleasures."
Robert D. Gibson, '23, freshman
track' man: "The first month of a
school year is necessarily. more ex-
pensive than the rest, for one has
to buy books and pay his tuitiorL
Nevertheless, there is no reason viiy
a student shouldn't be able to average
$60 a month for the entire year, for
the short school months of December
and April will counteract October."
Tomorrow's question: "What do
you consider the greatest moving pic-
ture that has ever been produced?"

ARTICLE ON RESEARCH. WORK
An article by Elmer HLWuerth, '18P,
on a study of American wormseed,
appeared in the February issue of the
Journal of the American Pharmaceu-
tical association. the plants on which
Wuerth worked for his results during
graduate work completed about June
1919, were grown at the University
of Michigan botanical gardens.
Wuerth was th.e holder of the Fred-
erick Stearns and company fellow-

.out the matter published in the article
as part of the requirements for the
degree of M.Sc. He is now in the em-
