Night Editor-HUGH W. HITCHCOCK
CLASS SPIRIT MISUSED
Both the Student council and the Student Ad-
sory committee have taken a definite stand"
ainst any but the regular and authorized disci-
ne of freshmen. The council's stand, as well as
at of the University administration, has been
1.l known for years. Real observance by the stu-''
nt body of the rules against mob "roughing" of
derclassmen has been growing for some time. In
ew of these facts the absolutely unjustified in-
lent of Thursday night seems a definite step back-
rd, and action must be taken at once and backed.
the classes concerned to prevent any repetitibn
ring next week particularly and the remainder,
Anyone who has paid the least heed to the trend
opinion on the question of unauthorized fresh-
n discipline knows very well the reasons for its
>lition. Mobbing of first year men inevitably
rts the good name of Michigan; the report of it
spread far and wide through the country while
normal situation goes unnoticed. Eventually, in-
ies or worse are sure to result. The original.
.sons for such discipline have passed with es-
ilshment of the present gauge-cocks for inter-
ss rivalry - the Spring and Fall games - and
:h the appointment of an underclass conduct
nmittee of sophomores to take care of flagrant
es of cockiness. No excuse for the mob spirit
Kidnapping of freshman officials for the Spring
nes by an unauthorized mob of sophomores is
only dead against the established Student coun-
and University rulings but is absolutely useless
m a practical standpoint. If the men seized had
n confined until the time of the tug of war, the
-ing games would have been called off and for-
ed to the freshman class - a policy which has
n well known for some time. All the hard work
[ the "beating up" which the unfortunate sopho-
re captors suffered was in vain, and never could
e resulted in anything but a loss to the class re-
text week above all weeks is to be a time when
:higan must prevent any recurrence of such ac-
. We shall have the greatest number of vis-
s here since the football season. Any man so
e concerned for his University as to join in un-
horized interclass clashes during that time

OUR ROWING POSSIBILITIES
or a long time the sports of rowing and scull-
have been advocated for adoption at Michi-
but apparently no definite steps have ever been
n by those in authority to make the dream a
ization. Last year, of, course, a group of stu-
:s banded together and procured a shell for the
>ose of holding informal workouts and contests
Barton pond, but the movesent was not much
some time ago, it was found that the pond offered
room for a fairly good mile and a half course with
an excellent stretch of a mile and a quarter. The
only drawback is a slight turn of about fifteen de-
grees somewhere near half way between the dam
itself and the upper wagon bridge. In the chan-
nel thus planned out, there is ample room for three
shells, which is probably as large a number as we
would ever find need for placing on the water at
one. time. The distance, moreover, would be ample
for our requirements, for the old four-mile race is
rapidly passing into the discard.
What is needed to set up the sport here is not
individual support alone, such as was so freely
given last year, but thorough co-operation between
those interested and the Athletic association itself.
Naturally the establishment of rowing on the basis
of a recognized or informal sport would be an ex-
pense. Not only would it be necessary to pur-
chase a shell and sculls, but to furnish a boat house
with lockers and to hire a coach as well.
This is a form of athletics, however, which is
fast coming to be looked upon as one of the prin-
cipal interscholastic branches of competition, not
only in this country but all over the world. It seems
unfortunate that an institution of the size of Mich-
igan should continue to keep it out of its sports
calendar, especially when natut'ally as well equip-
ped for participation as we are. There are plenty
of rowing enthusiasts of ability now among the
FERRY FIELD VANDALS
Right now the Athletic department is doing its
best, with the labor it can secure, to extend the
'present tennis court facilities of the University.
But the job is turning out to be a one-step-forward
and two-backward affair. No sooner is a start
made on a new court than the labor has to be with-
drawn to repair damage done by wanton misuse of
the old courts, after rains such as that of Thurs-
The class of students responsible for this de-
struction of property and waste of time does not
have the proper civic spirit. With no regard for
the -rights of others and without a care that they are
-destroying the athletic property of the University,
they go on digging holes in soft courts and run-
ning by the hundreds, in disregard of signs, across
the football field which it has taken years of care
to bring to its present shape.
Far worse thanthe mere fact Hof this trespassing
is the attitude of such men when halted or cor-
rected for their carelessness. The average reply is
"Who are you?" or "Whose field do you think
They should be very easily answered. The privi-
leges of using the courts are certainly not for such
as they. Revocation of .their right to enter 'Ferry
field would be absolutely just under the circum-
stances. If they refuse to consider the University
or the hundreds who wish to use the courts they
put out of commission, there is no reason they
should be granted any more consideration them-
