DECORATION DAY DUTIES
Tomorrow for the second time since the great
ar an opportunity is presented for every one who
loyally served his country to show his respect
r' the nation and for those comrades who are now
acefully re'sting in France, by appearing in un-
rm' for the Memorial day parade. In order to
sure the success of the parade it is absolutely
sential that this observation be religiously adhered
and no thought of personal feeling must inter-
re with the performance of the duty of being out
Since the highly patriotic days of the war, it has
en observed that great laxity has existed in re-
rd to the proper respect that should 'be shown
e colors, Nothing shows greater disrespect than
e- failure to s'alute the colors upon passing, and
is inexcuseable for anyone to disregard this sim-
e niilitary courtesy. For those in civilian clothes
e head should be bared when the colors go by
d it is to be hoped that the violations, too common
the past, wil not occur again.
Let's see everyone out in uniform regardless of
e.I length or branch' of his service, and thus as-
re the most successful Decoration day yet held.
An old Italian artist who had come to America
maintain a teaching studio in a Western town
s once, called to his window to watch a civic
geant as it passed in the crowded street below.
ardly a glance, and he turned with a quick Latin
sture of depreciation to his students, who were
gring enthralled at the gaudy procession of papier-
ache, cardboard, and cAlico.
"We do not do it that way in the home country,"
smiled. "We make it right - or there is no
Granted that "the home country" - any old
>rld land - has an historical background im-
ssible to America which inspires men toward the
:al of perfection: the wonderful cathedrals and
blic buildings which the world will always copy
ind as only a few of many examples of the spir-
d life 'long toil of men who would not be con-
ited with anything short of the best. Granted.
>, that in a hundred realms of production and
xury America's new spirit of swift and mighty
hievement has placed her far ahead of the coun-
es whose history lies mostly in the past. But is
not also true that there is a medium of reason,
tirely attainable, which we have so far failed to
isp, and which as a people we must incorporat
the new standards we are making for our nev
e? Are there not some corners of life where not.
r cult of speed and sufficiency Uut the old idea
perfection ought to prevail?
Why, for example, should we carry into litera-
-e and -into art and drama the same standards on
ich we construct dry kilns, sell automobiles, or
se oats? Why does "a best seller" mean so
ch when apoken of a book? Why does "a
aadway success" stamp a play as great in the
>ic mind? Because we have failed to see that
re is a shadow line, and go orf judging things
perly of the spirit according to whether they
fulfill their immediate purpose and not whether
they are in themselves thoughtful or fine.
It has come to be almost bromidic that any al-
terations in this respect must be made in connec-
tion with the economic order with which America
is bound up, the business purpose which has in-
vaded everything. But that is far from proving
that the transformation cannot be achieved. If the
average American - the business man - comes
to see the line beyond which something more than
mere efficiency or popularity must always be
evoked as the standard, then we shall have no
more plaster arches to honor cities' hero dead;
no more reckoning of the value of writing by
commercial blurbs; an end of tin monuments and
serve-the-purpose churches and spur-of-the-mo-
ment laws; and with the change, a better class of
artists and builders and public servants called forth
to make good the spirit of the new age.
Unless this new culture gets the better of our
material, earthbound aims the civilization we are
making will not be a pleasant one for a thoughtful
man to live in.
BILLBOARDING THE CAMPUS
The true conception of respect which we should
have for the beauty and dignity of the University
campus is incompatible with the spirit shown by
many organizations in using it indiscriminately as
a billboard for campus events. There seems to be
no disposition to ask authorities where to place
signs in order that they may not spoil the appear-
ance of the campus, and on some days of late the
poor be-plastered University quadrangle has
borne the gaudy appearance of a London bus.
There is a place for everything; but the place for
advertising is not in locations where it will rob
the campus of its good looks. Action to'prevent
such maltreatment in the future ought to be wel-
comed 'y the student body.
Tad Wieman - erstwhile "Tank" during the
season of 1917 when he shifted to the backfield and
bore down on the hostile line of opposing teams,
and "Elton E." to the professors who have known
him as a remarkable student - has the cograt-
lations of all Michigan in receiving the Michigan
Conference medal for athlete-scholars. He has
tended to business in every line of activity; his
only watchword during three Varsity years has
been service to Michigan; and the University -may
well be congratulated on having a man of his phys-
ical and mental capacities to help Yost at the helm
Is the reason some people trample the grass the
fact that they envy it for being as green as they?

bleachers all the way around the field - and cov-
