By Grantland Rice

I wandered to Ann Arbor, Tom, I went the other day;
I made my way to Ferry Field to see the squad at play;
But none was there to greet me, Tom, and none was left to know
Who played with us upon the team a few short years ago.
I saw Yost coaching as of old-the same old Yost, it's true;
But not the same old buffaloes that wore the Maize and Blue;
And like some wild tornado turned adrift upon the foe.
They turned up 60 points a game a few short years ago.
I saw the scrub team hold 'em, Tom, and then my thoughts went back-
I saw the shade of Heston as he led the old attack;
With Weeks and Longman at his side-'twas 50 yards or so,
Each time this old bunch had the ball a few short years ago,
And then-like some rare vision looming faintly thru the haze-
I saw the Wolverine machine of now long-vanished days;
McGugin, Hammond, Rheinschild, with Sweeley, White and Snow-
I wish we'd had J. Harvard, Tom, a few short years ago.

Nevertheless as a social topic, at

ought to be put under the ban of the

come under the Volkstead act, make
respectable small talk.
Subject Has Been Done to Death
The subject as a -whole, however,
has been so long monopolized by the
boobs, the bromides, the Patterites,
that it has lost the last vestige of
tang or flavor. The abashed dolt, the
fatuous optimist, the stereotyped pes-
simist, the inarticulate flapper, the
over-fed moron, the "chance acquaint-
ance," these have done the weather to
death. They have truly done it to
death.Dececy requires that we leave
the dead in peace. Let the question as
to which the weather affects most, the
crops or conversation, be settled with
finality, and in favor of the crops.

Rev. Dr. Frank Crane, and his jour-

there is no hope for any boy who has
not found his "life work" between the
ages of twelve and sixteen. All we
can say without likewise getting hys-
terical, is, Why? Why do they slobber,
so? Why are they permitted to do this
publicly? Is there not enough of the
eternal din of braying made by those
who cannot do otherwise?
It's at least twelve years since we

we are risking it that there are a few

DIAGONAL DIST
--- {By E. R. X.)
The following verses represent the
most radical metrical origination since
the time of Spenser. The first andy
fourth lines of each stanza are two
feet longer than the rest. Readers
will kindly observe a strict and exact-
ing beat, regardless of where the blow
falls. The poem is entitled:
How Sally Won the Stream-Line Horse
Sally Selser swam serenely, so she
said,
Sending spray spiralling skyward,
Sensing sure success she sped;
Shooting scientific, safety-razor
strpkes,
Sailing safely, swiftly shoreward,
Splashing, seething, savage soaks.
Sally Selser swam so satisfactorily,
Soon she struck some solid shore;
Said shore sure soaked Sally silly.
Sally saw some shattered startling,
starry sights;
Sweet success seemed so sublime,
Sally's swelling soon seemed slight.
The success of Ed Wynn's famous
song entitled, "You Cannot Hammer a
Nail with a Sponge No Matter How
Much You Soak It," has inspired the
writing of a worthy sequel, "You, Can-
not Clean a Carpet with an Egg No
Matter How Hard You Beat It."
First Page Ad in Podunk Gazette
"The person who took a five-gallon
can of soap out of Zeke William's ga-
rage is known. If he will return it
immediately Zeke will wink his eye
and not even try to find out who it is,
as that pillar of the village does not
wish to create hard feelings over soft
soap.,
Npw that the Russians are through
rushirrg the Prussians, and the Pins-
sians have quit rushing the Russians,
etc., it seems that the United States
and Japan have commenced "yapping."

HORSEMEN
of the APOCALYPSE

- they say
"For sheer realism 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' has
never been excelled. . . . it challenges comparison. . . . a picture
you cannot afford to miss." (Free Press.)
"The thousands upon whom 'The Four Horsemen of the Apoca-
lypse' tale with its undertone of sacred allegory made a profound
impression, will find that impression deepened and vivified by the
picture." (Journal.)
"In every way 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' represents
the highest mark in American motion picture making." (News.)
"'4 Horsemen.' A Triumph. . . . so superior to the rank and
file of film offerings as to make them cheap and tawdry in compari-
son. . . ." (Times.)

The sheer beauty of Blanche Davis was a legacy

of peril.

From her budding girlhood she had been

set apart in the crowd-a creature whose glance made
men's hearts beat faster. And now, in the bloom of
womanhood, falsely accused, she was leaving home.
An enthralling story of love, erring but unsmirched.
