dar of events before setting their date. Small at-
tendance at the Senior Lit dance was prima facie
evidence of the soundness of class loyalty, which
is above all Michigan loyalty - everybody was
at the gane. Only a couple of slips, to be sure;
but the kind of slips we want to steer clear of.
"HOOEY" ON CHIMES
'With the May issle, Volume Two of the Mich-
igan Chimes saw it completion and in comment-
ing upon the event, little more can be said than
that if future editors attain the high standard' set
by this year's occupant of the sanctum, they will
have their work cut out for them. Last year
Chimes was in its infancy and in what might be
called its experimental stage. It was a question
as to whether a magazine with the aims which the
publication had set for itself could exist upon the
campus. This year, the excellent work of the staff
has allayed all fears as to its possible discontinu-
ance.
THE DAILY and Chimes have had their argu-
ments during the year, and perhaps the best word
which can be said about them is that they were all
carried on in that friendly spirit which is provoca-
tive of real benefit to the persons criticized. Even
the editor's final word, expressed in "Not Much
of Anything", THE DAiLY refuses to take offense
at. Perhaps the future. will see the time when
THiE DAILY feels itself justified in shying a few
missiles at Chimes for opinions expressed in its col-
umns, and if so we could not hope to do better
than to criticize in the pleasantly jocular manner
which Chimes has assumed.
The policy of this year's editor of the monthly
magazine in securing more alumni articles is truly
to be commended. It is felt that there is nothing
which is so surely conducive to an awakening of
opportptnities which lie both in school and outside
as friendly articles by experienced, alumni whose,
interest in Michigan and the welfare of her stu-
dents is great enough to cause them to respond
to the requests sent out by campus editors.
There have been some very interesting articles
secured in this way for Chimes and while it is not
the aim here to dictate the policy of next year's
editor, the excellent results obtained are a suffi-
cient cause to warrant a continuance of his pre-
decessor's methods.
Chimes has been thoroughly enjoyed by students
upon the campus this year. Its stories and arti-
cles .have had such a wide scope as to leave little
room for criticism and if there has been any ad-
verse comment, it can only be said that it is im-
possible to please everyone.
Tihe Telescop e
The All-Campus Man
I came to school with high ideas, to conquer and
to win;.
As soon as I had, checked my trunk, with vim I
started in.
The Daily first received the burst of knowledge I..
possessed;
Considerate,;'if nothing else, hey said, "Go take a
rest'*
Then out for football did I stalk, 'til one day, from
the rain
I scampered under shelter, and the coach waxed
most profane.
I've tried to make the Ensian, and the Directory ;
I must admit that I have seen. quite all there is
to see.
I went out for the hockey team; and fool that I
have been,
I even tried to make the Chimes a paying maga-
zine.
But now at last I have achieved one aim and aspira-
tion;
They've put me on, - but can't you guess, they've
put me on probation.
Rolling stones may gather no moss, but they do
become polished.

THE THIRD FLOOR BACK
The third floor back is not a room. To be sure
was at one time the smallest, dingiest, most dis-
artening room in the discouraged city boarding
use which had seen better days. Such rooms
still exist, but "third floor back" is no longer
scriptive of them. Popular novelists have made
he third floor back" over into a state of mind.
When hearing the phrase today we see a weak,
effectual man who has proved incapable of meet-
g the world. He is a man who has lost out in
ring for the better things of life; a man who,
sentingehis own inferiority and bitter at the suc-
ss of others, has turned carping critic of all who
cceed," picking out and emphasizing the flaws
the characters and deeds of bigger, men.
We, at Michigan, should be above the petty
eanness that marks the self-acknowledged fail-
e. Nevertheless there are many men on the
ichigan campus today who have "the third floor
ck" view of life, so far as baseless criticism is
ncerned. here is, however, one important paint
difference between them and the men who have'
xned bitter through failure. Our third floor
cks have never tried.
When other men. were out trying for the foot-
.11 or basketball squads, the baseball nine, the
ack teani or any of the host of non-athletic un-
rgraduate activities, our inferior critics have
en sitting on the sidelines giving gratuituous ad-
:e as to how the thing should be done. That,
wever, is not so bad. There are any number of
ople who are so superior mentally and physically
at they can surpass the specialist and give him
od advice, but when these super-men confine
emselves entirely to destructive criticism and
locking, they become "third floor backs" par ex-
hence. Failure being their self-accepted me-
r, their obvious superiority makes them highly
ccessful failures.
We admit that they are getting on our nerves
th their perpetual yapping. We invite them to
ve a try at really getting into student affairs. If
erything is going to the dogs it is up to them as
ichigan men to go out and earn for themselves
e places now held by alleged incompetents. Once
ey have become pluggers for Michigan instead
knockers and constitutional exponents of "the
rd-floor back" attitude they will be in position
criticise constructively; to build instead of de-.
oy. Perhaps when they do they will be able to
preciate what asses they are making of them-
ves and what a liability they are to their Uni-
rsity.
A COUPLE OF SLIPS
Matinee dances may help a class or an organi-
:ion to "get together". Certainly they are, to a
mber of students, a pleasant way to pass an aft-
"oon. But the need for these "trots" is hardly
pressing as to call for scheduling them at the
ie of a Varsity contest, as has been done the
