The abnormal wage scales-in which it
t the colnpensations of all classes of work-
isters-are the results of a war period whos imme-
diate influences must soon pass.
Once the readjustment takes place, the prepara-
tion received in college will no longer be talked of
as a financial loss. "For the purpose of living, of
enjoying much, and of doing great things,"' says the
Minneapolis Journal, "the path through the uni-
versity offers more to the ambitious youth than
does any unskilled walk in life."
IMPORTANCE OF THE SUMMER SCHOOL
A marked change in the general attitude toward
the Summer session has been apparent during the
past few years. Whereas it was formerly regarded
as a last resort for securing needed credit, it is now
l looked upon as of almost equal importance to the
fall and.spring semesters.
Every branch of the summer school work has
shown a gradual increase at each session during
the past ten years. The attendance last year was
found to behalf again as great as that of tcn years
previous and the increased number of men on the
190 faculty is of a similar proportion..
Graduate work in 1919 was carried on to a greater
extent in the summer than in the regular terms, the
proportion 'of graduates to undergraduates in the
academic year being 1-31, while in the summer it
Summer school work is coming to be more and
more seriously regarded by the average student.
And it is being more widely recognized because of
the unusual' opportunity for accomplishing the max-
imum work in the minimum .time.
THE EVENT CALENDAR
The publication of' an event calendar every fall
is under the consideration of the Student counci-.
This calendar, besides containing the footbali sched-
ule, would give the dates and a brief hstory of all
the annual events such as Traditions day, pep meet-
ings, fall and spring games.
A publication of this sort would be an excellent
means of acquainting the first year men with the
many events which occur during the school year,
anl, undoubtedly, would also be welcomed by the
upperclassmen. If put out in an attractive manner,
it. would be an ornament of real use and an appro-
priate souvenir for the "M" book.

Dear Noah: -
What is meant by "the language of the flowers?"
Nothing, except that a $5 bunch of roses speaks
much louder than 50 cents worth of violets.
An extract from Izee Manordog's latest novel,
"The Soul of the Gumfoufoo Tree," which- created
such a furor in prominent literary circles.
The great moment of her life had come. The
full August moon sending a golden path 'across the
waters of the lake, the deep shadow of the balsams
enshrouding the rustic seat, their trysting place, -
all combined .in an atmosphere that whispered soft
murmurings of love. She was unschooled in love,
and yet the intuition of gently budding womanhood
guessed that he was about to declare himself.
"Dear girl," he began hesitatingly, his voice thick
with emotion, "it is time that I spoke to you about
something which is of vital importance to both of
us. I feel that I would be doing both of us a ter-
rible injustice were I to remain silent on the sub-
ject. . This thing has kept me awake - I have not
slept since that first, nerve-wracking night. I could
not, try as I would, banish nor forget that which
disturbed my slumbers. And as I lay on my bed'
the thought kept recurring to me, 'I must tell her.'
I have tried to keep this knowledge locked in my
bosom, yet always I have been haunted by the
thought, 'You must tell her; you must tell her.'"
Her heart fluttered. He loved her. Oh, 'what
mattered now - what in afl the world could matter
now, except the fulfilling and enriching of their
love. Their love should flourish like the ever-blos-
soming Gumfoufoo tree, whose broad palms wav-
ing in the parched air of the desert bring joy to the
eye of the weary traveler. And now she asked gen-
tly, "what is this that has kept you awake " He
cleared his voice several times Before speaking and
then plunged desperately on, "Well, you see - ah
- ah the truth is your window is just below mine
and to be ah - brutally frank, YOU'RE A
DEUCEDLY' HUSKY SNORER." Nothing
broke the solemn hush of the evening except the
gentle moaning of the balmy zephyrs as they stir-
red the limbs of the Gumfoufoo tree.

Today's question..;' 'What do you
consider the greatest Ioving picture
that has ever been produced T"
Albert C. Jacobs, '21, president jun-
for lit class: "I have always thought
that 'Hearts of the World, was the
greatest moving picture ever produc-
ed. Its fine actors, beautiful settings,
and general theme, coupled with D.
W. Griffith's directing, were such ex-
cellent examples. of perfection that I
doubt if they will ever be equalled."
Robert F. Grindley, 121E, president
junior engineer class: "I think 'Cleo-
patra' and 'Salome' are the greatest
noving pictures ever *produced. It is
hard to decide which was the greater,
for both were excepiti onally elaborate,
historical, and instructive. In my op-
inion either surpassed 'Intoleraavce' or
'The Birth of a Nation'"
Ralph 0. Rychener, '22M, captain of
the Varsity basketball team: "The
Birth of a Nation,' the picture that
made D. W. Griffith famous, is in my
estimation the greatest photoplay of
all time. Although it was compara-
tively simple in plot, the inasterful
scenes and wonderful photoplay creat-
ed a new era in the motion picture
field which has yet to be surpassed."
