MAIK SWING-OUT THE STARTER
Tearing caps and gowns for the first time as
,oing seniors of Michigan, the class of 1921
take part next Thursday in the annual Swing-
day exercises. The day is significant in the life
:very senior as marking the beginning of the
after which many a fond farewell will be taken
riends and institutions. But it is also significant
.use it is the first of many senior events and is
day when 1921 seniors begin observing the time-
I customs and traditions of former graduating
$es with a view toward reinstating them and
Zing them a part of every senior class in the fu-
is hoped that this will be the beginning of real
or class spirit - the kind that makes for Mich-
spirit and gives strength to the alumni body
ugh closer association of the class. Not only on
rsday, but on every -Monday and Thursday
after it's up to every senior to appear on the
pus bedecked in his cap and gown - the insig-
of commencement. Every man can display his
ity also by carrying a senior cane at the times
gnated. The tradition of the cane should be con-
red an honor that only comes once, and then as
nior, and no compunctions ought to be felt by
member of the class about carrying a cane asa
bol of that honor.
mong other pre-commencement events are the
or sings. It is hoped that the class of 1921
be the one to reinstate this tradition in its old

at these functions that this can be accom-

te years, especially those of the last decade,
seen an almost unprecedented stimulus given
ie "ancient and honorable game of golf". Of
eration for a great many years -- some two hun-
dred to be more or less exact --- but it is a fact
that the last ten years have seen this most per-
sonal of sports raised to a height where it remains
almost supreme as the game which may be played
by men and women of all ages, from the schoolboy,
barely in his 'teens, to the business man, whose
years number three score and ten.
Commtinity golf courses, many new private clubs,
and even private courses have been the result of this
added stimulus, and of late years, especially in the
East, colleges have been taking the matter up.
Among several, golf has assumed the precedence of
an intercollegiate sport.
This latter fact contains especial significance for
the University of Michigan, for here, too, repeated
efforts to make the sport intercollegiate resulted in
competition of an informal team against Chicago
in I905, again in the Conference meet last fall, and
finally in a complete schedule of meets for this
spring, including Chicago, Northwestern, and Ohio
State. The advisability of further recognition can-
not be questioned. Golf is one of the cleanest games
in the entire calendar of sport, and its rise in popu-
larity of late years gives promise of an exception-
ally bright future for it. We shall be demonstrat-
ing our progressiveness if we give full encourage-.
ment to the wealth of excellent material which we

ASSURING MICHIGAN PROGRESS
Pour million, eight hundred thousand dollars is
something over-half the original amount asked for
the expansion of the University of Michigan's pres-
ent crowded facilities. The four millions cut may
be laid definitelyrto-the present condition of state
finances, which really °made 'it obligatory for the'
legislature to use the shears.,
The start is to be slower than at first planned, but
this is definitely the first step - the assurance that
Michigan is to progress surely toward a place in the
matter of equipmer t commensurate with her posi-
tion as one of America's greatest state universities.
With-better financial conditions ahead and the in-
evitable post-war rearrangement of the state's dis-
turbed budget methods, the same amount of liber-
ality from the next legislature will very probably
mean a much larger grant for the 1923-1925 period.
Beginning of the most necessary structures is
made possible at once, as well as the completion of
the shell of the new hospital. The raising of the
mill, tax means a .permanent increase in University
income. Most satisfactory of .all is the evident at-
titude of' increased appreciation by the legislature
of the place of higher education in the state. The
University budget has received a greater consider-
ation than at any time in the past - of special sig-
nificance in view of the pressing needs in other ap-

What Makes the Firefly Glow.
Y OU can hold a firefly in your, hand; you can boil
water with an electric lamp. Nature long ago evolved
the "cold light." The firefly, according to Ives and
Coblentz, radiates ninety-six percent light and only foui
percent heat. 'Man's best lamp radiates more than ninety
An English physicist once said that if we knew the fire-
fly's secret, a boy turning a crank could light up a whole
street. Great as is the advance in lighting that has been
made through research within the last twenty years, man
wastes far too much energy in obtaining light.
This problem of the "cold light".cannot.be solved merely
by trying to improve existing power-generating machinery
and existing lamps. We should still be burning candles if
chemists and physicists had confined their researches to the
improvement of materials and methods for making candles.
For these reasons, the Research Laboratories of the
General Electric Company are not limited in the scope of
their investigations. Research consists in framing questions
of the right kind and in finding, the answers, no nkatter
where they may lead.
What makes the firefly glow? How does a firefly's light
differ in color from that of an electric arc, and why? The.
answers to such questions may or may not be of practical
value, but of this we may be sure-it is by dovetailing the
results of "theoretical" investigations along many widely
separated lines that we arrive at most of our modern
What will be the light of the future? Will it be like that
of the firefly or like that of the dial on a luminous watch?
Will it be produced in a lamp at present undreamed of, or
will it come from something resembling our present incan-
descent lamp? The answers to these questions will depend
much more upon the results of research in pure science than
upon strictly commercial research.

The other day we noted a local ad, "The prettiest

to look in the store's windows, and the adarn.frocks
