vidualistic attitude and his spirit of irresponsibility
as regards things pertaining to his Alma Mater. He
goes about repeating rumors that he has heard off-
hand, giving them out as fact before he has tried to
investigate. His \ remarks not only are aimed at
professors and courses but they also hurt Michigan
spirit in athletics and other student activities. He
seems to be imbued with the incurable fault of crit-
icising existirg things destructively with never a
thought about a possible correction. The essence
of growth is true criticism, but when it comes in
the form of passed-on gossip it does more harm
than good. We hear altogether too many remarks
about activities, games, and what not, by men who,
we know, would not pass oh such astounding news
as fact if they understood a little better the activ-
ity, or had a little more to do with the professor
or his course. It is time to begin to foster a better
campus spirit by getting rid of the not necessarily.
disloyal, but thoughtless, student gossip. Let's do our
part toward making Michigan stand among other
schools as a place where the students are that type
of men and women, who prove their University cal-
ibre by refusing credence to rumor and propaganda.

that the convocation of the journalistic
college and university papers throughout

EDISON AND THE COLLEGE MAN
A short time ago Thomas Edison lamented the
fact that so many of the college men with whom
he had come in contact were very ignorant in re-
gard to practical subjects. While not disputing the
accuracy of the observations of the famous invent-
er, still it is felt that possibly he did not take into
consideration some of the other factors which give
the college graduate a "head start".
The question of ignorance is not all that is to be
taken into consideration, for it is certain that upon
investigation everyone will be found in various'
stages of ignorance upon various subjects, of which
Mr. Eidson's tests are an infinitesimal, part. The
big deciding factor in success is not how unin-
formed one is but how quickly it is possible, to as-
simulate the amount of information necessary to
overcome this lack.
That the college man has a distinct advantage in
.accomplishing this task has been amply confirmed
by the observations of a great many keen-sighted
business men, who ,for this reason give preference'
to this, type, of man. While it is undoubtedly to be
deplored that a great many college men are strik-
ingly uninformed on a great many special sub-
jects, still it is a proved fact that by acquiring the
ability to comprehend and assimilate readily they
entirely vindicate the'cause of college education.
In view of the number of office girls winning re-
cent beauty contests, an awakening of the "home
forces" and a stricter censorship of hubby's pri-
vate stenographer selections may be expected.

"Our Girl" Has Gone
We've waited for a week now, all in vain,.
We called her up, we wrote her, made a search,
We never want to hear of her again,
To think that she has left us in the lurch
We thought "our girl" was different, and it hurts
To realize she's just like all, the rest;
She probably has hooked some other perch;
Oh Virgil! Your conviction 'was the best,
"Varium et mutabile semper femina est".
It satisfied most of the sophomores to say "Give
'em hell, twenty-three", but one, more ferocious
than the rest, with grim, determined jaw, and as-
perity written upon every line of his visage, uttered
the harshest invective conceivable, "Give, 'em Tay-
lor's Economics". What is this younger genera-
tion coming to?

That he could buy in town.
