THE DRONES OF SPORT
Every year hundreds of amateur golfers, bent on
IIs and titles, drop business of all kinds to make
ie long round of tournaments which lasts from one
id 'f summer to the other and involves weeks of
>ring preparatory training. Some even put the
itire year in on the game, hibernating in the South
>r that purpose alone.
These men cannot be said to be producing any-
ing. Many of them have splendid talents, but
ieir butterfly peregrinations in the eternal sun-
iine of self-satisfaction and honor among the links
terie keeps them from doing the least service. to
e world. Golf is their life. They have their
>unterparts in seveal fields of nationwide amateur
>ort; the amateur of leisure is becoming a type.
ennis also has its all-year devotees; even billiards
n number followers .who count it not a hobby,
at a vocation.
The professional who spends his life imparting
iowledge of a sport to men who are learning it as
healthful recreation away from business hours is
rforming a real service; he is doing a man's job,
rning his hire. But the man whose whole exist-
ice is play, who has forgotten how to shudder at
e sloth and irresponsibility of those like himself
ho toy on the pretty outskirts of life while others
-e meeting it face to face, has no excuse to lay
:fore the working world of men.
Sometimes the apology has been made for this
pe that they are forever aiming at perfection. Re-
ntly the Outlook considered the case of Hoppe,
e great billiard champion; and while deploring in
general sense the waste of time on non-produc-
ie occupations, which reminded the editor of the
onotonous and senseless drawing of'circles within
rcles by an old Chinese school of art, the world's

ampion was exempted from this condemnation on
e ground that his wonderful perfection of tech-
que was its own justification
Perhaps there is a saving grace in an earnest
riving after the best, no matter what the field.,
ertainly Hoppe, and the few others whose devo--
>)n to the mastery of their art makes it an end
d goal in itself, cannot be accused of laziness.
ut the hundreds who use a sport only as a
eans - an open sesame to the carefree, adulated
:istence of the sporting "gentleman of leisure",
ich is only another name for human drone -
n offer no real brief before their fellows.
LITERACY TESTS FOR VOTERS
In New York state a constitutional amendment,
:uiring literacy tests for voters has passed the
;islature twice and will be submitted to the voters
r approval at the fall election. The proposed
iendment is moderate, requiring only that a voter
all be able to read and write English, and it does
t affect anyone already properly possessing the.
anchise.
The right to vote is a qualified right, not a natural
e, New York rightly argues, and it carries with
certain reciprocal obligations. To vote intelli-
ntly one must have a thorough knowledge of the
ues at stake, he must familiarize himself with
character and records of the candidates sub-'

THE MICHI
some, knowledge of the general scheme of holding
elections. It would be asking too much to exact
all of these requirements from the average per-
son, but it is vital that he should b& able to perform
the first task necessary for naturalization, that of
being able to read and write the English language.
If he does not possess this capacity, he has not been
legally naturalized. Failure properly to adminis-
~ter the naturalization laws is the condition at which
the New York legislature is striking.
In the past certain sections of the country have
deemed it advisable to cater to the foreign and ig-
norant vote and have eliminated all restrictions on
the use of the ballot. If we are to have better
elections in the future other states must respond
to the movement New York is starting in estab-
lishing literacy tests of a moderate nature for
voters.
PLAYS IN FOREIGN TONGUES
The performance last night of the initial play of
La Sociadad Hispanica, which presented the Span-
ish comedy Zaraqueta, marks not only the increased
interest taken in dramatic productions, but also is
of great significance regarding the impetus lately
given the study of foreign languages.
There is nothing of greater benefit in increasing
the appeal of a foreign language, than the dramat-
ization of a native play, if only that by this means
it is possible to become acquainted in some small
measure with the customs and spirit of 'the country
of that tongue. Too often students are prone to'
feel that the study of a foreign language is only a
necessary evil. Nothing is of greater aid in dis-
pelling such an illusion than the witnessing of a
play, for it is then possible for a person to judge
the actual strides he has made in the mastering of
the language.
For some time French plays have been presented
at Michigan and have always received the most
hearty support. .The appearance for the first time
of a Spanish play heralds the ever-increasing pop-
ularity that the study of Spanish has enjoyed in the
last few years. That plays of this nature have a
real place to fill cannot be doubted and it is to be
hoped that the utmost support will be accorded the
appearance of these productions.
How far news tra els, even in the worst cir-
cles! Yesterday the United States was congratu-
lating herself on the good riddance of her auto
bandits. Now comes the news that South America
has caught the craze and the taxi robbery is all the
rage in Buenos Aires
Michigan's ball team certainly has a knack of
skinning out by a margin of one. Ought to be good
exercise for the nerves.
The T2elescope
The Union Worker's Creed
Union men please comrit to meory at once.
Eight hours for work,
Eight hours for play,
And eight hours to dream
Of a sven hour day.
Thebad thing about elections is that so few are
appointed 'while the rest are disappointed.

Our Latest Song Entitled:
"Frailty, Thy Cause' Is Woman."
Stolen Thunder
A certain New York clubman dreamed recently

that he had died and gone to heaven. St. Peter in-
troduced him into the most exclusive club there;
\ and as he sat in its halls of gold and marble a lit-
tle cherub came through paging him. "Call for Mr.
Jones! Call for Mr. Jones!"
"Here you are, boy;" called the clubman as he
beckoned to the cherub. "I'm Mr. Jones. What
is it ?"
"Your 'wife wants you on the ouija board, sir."
Tar Baby.
There are a lot of hams around
Who make an awful noise and clamour.;
But would it be an awful blow
To say that some are even hammer.
"Don't worry, Rastus, a barking dog never bites
"Yassah, Ah knows it, but does the dog know it ?"
Some people are so dark that the fire-flies follow
themf around in the daytime.
It': the ashion Nowadays
Dear Erm:
The other day I received an invitation to a party
with the initials B. Y.'0. L. down in the left hand
corner. Can you by any chance tell me what it
means? Yours,
I. G. Norant.
Dear I. G.: In view of the trend of the times,
we should say at a hasty guess that B. Y. 0. L.
means Bring Your Own Liquor. Our advice
would be to stay away from the party.
