Lots of Things Point to Importance
of "Revival" Sunday
It is a contested question whether
Easter assumes importance because of
a revival of religion or a revival of
last year's spring clothes.
One thing-Lent is over and every-
body will be eating chocolate sundaes
Another thing-What possible ex-
cuse can anybody- find now for wear-

Variety of Tongues
Greek and Latin would, of course,
consume a good portion of the time
he spent in this manner. But he would
still have an opportunity to, take San-

long his course and take some of the
languages which are omitted for this
year he could add to his list Assyrian,
and Arabic, besides numerous courses
in the other tongues which are not be-

are also included courses in Gothic,
Scandinavian, and Old Norse.
Add to this list the many courses
in English literature, as well as the
rhetoric courses, which deserve a place
among language courses, and it is
plain that after a life time spent in

Last Sunday P. M. a car steamed
up to tht facade of the "house"; a

Here's a Point to Be Scoffed At
Sir-I have been informed that the
Associated Press maintains a man in
Holland who does nothing but wait for
the ex-Kaiser to speak. What a tre-
mendous loss of time and money there
would be, if, when Wilhelm finally did
talk, the A. P. man couldn't under-
stand German. PEDRO.
' perhaps he ought to write%. an auto-
The special mail is about twice as
heavy as it was last year. Each of the
postmen average about 60 letters
apiece, which means about 300 specials
distributed per day. At the end of the
month the total is about 9,000. which
equals $90 donated to the government
because Ann Arbor ,"seems so far
away" or somebody just can't wait
to tell him."
That is not all. Nine new trucks
have been ordered by the local service
to care for the parcel post-the laun-
dry boxes and the candy boxes and the
food that gets inadequately packed and
spills all along the way. Stacks 20
feet high are often blocking the post
ofiice doors and, incidentally, .get-
ting knocked over. The moral
is that the weight upon the bottom
packages is pretty heavy and many of
them are insufficiently wrapped.
During the summer months all this
turmoil ceases, for the demands up-
on the service grow very light and the
mailmen can take a real vacatioi-
"even as you and I."
But there is one more moral. Since
the opening of the second semester
many addresses have been changed
and studens have failed to sign the
cards that notify carriers of the new
location. Hence, innumerable letters
have been sent to the dead letter of-
fice. Which isn't a good plan-because
somebody might get the idea that a
lot of Michigan students are "dead."
$481000 NEEDEDFOR TANK
Union Swimming Pool Would be Ideal
Place for Varsity Meets
By R. . L.
When the new swimming pool in
the Union is completed Michigan will
have a tank which is inferior to none
in thei Conferenge. Seventy-five by
thirty feet, graduated in depth, the
natatorium will -furnish .ideal accom-
modations for Varsity plungers and
for meets with otherschools.
Tiling must be done, dressing rooms
must be provided, and pumping and
filtering apparatus must be installed
before this splendid "swimmin' hole"
can be completed.
Michigan and Ohio State, of all Big
Ten schools, have not rtcognized swim-
ming as a Varsity sport. Michigan
has, this year, a strong swimming
team and should the tank be ready
for use next year Coach Drulard feels
sure that the place of the water sport
among Varsity games will se secured.
Inadequate funds is given as the
reason for the cessation of work on
this natatorium, but it is thought by
Union officials that the requisite $48,-
000 will be soon forthcoming.
