ALUMNI SECRETARIES
As they have increased in size, Michigan's classes
have found the maintenance of their alumni organ-
izations :intact more and more difficult. On enter-
ing the practical world the outgoing student quite
n atui-ally becomes absorbed in new interests with a
tendency to displace college associations. Conse-
quent1y' an occasional reminder of student days and
class-mates is sometimes required to keep the grad-
uate from becoming too much engrossed in the af-
fairs of day-to-day to the exclusion of his alma
heater. Usually this is sufficient, but its omnission
may account for the difference between the class
that keeps together after graduation and the one
that does not.
This afternoon the senior literary students will
elect two women and a man to serve as alumni
secretaries. The burden of jkeeping class-mates in
touch with one another and of fostering successful
reunions will rest on these three. Elections should
be made with the importance of the posts in mind.
This is the first step toward the right kind of
alunmi organization.
THE CAMPUS HULLABALOO
"The causes of this - (humming of gasoline
,lawinower) - sb please pay particular importance
Ao the following - (chug of automobile driven into
campus parking space with cutout open ) - and
the result of this was that - (rattling of lumber
wagon) - making the catastrophe I have men-
tiond inevitable" (sound of a hundred student
helped along by the trills o the whistle hounds).
voices outside the window, in a wild conclave
The above is a fair sample of the fitful excerpts
which managed to get to the student ear from the
tongue of a certain professor, who was striving
with: all his might, on a hot morning, to make him-
self heard above the campus babel. It is not an
exception, but rather typical. Reminding students
about such a matter seems like high school stuff. It
is. Btut it evidently has to be done.
When will the student Chevrolets and De Palmas
manage, to slip their "boats" into the campus ways
without foghorning with an open cutout? When
will the'congregation outside lecture and quizz
room witidows have the sense to lower thepitch a
couple of notches or disperse? When will the whis-
tling miller's boy cease to be a campus pest?
In short, why can't student Michigan -- now -
come to respect some of the rights of others who
are trying to study, recite, or tak notes - and get
a little more of that community spirit which would
make the present hullabaloo impossible? Let's get
together on 'a no-cutouts, no-chatter drive - and
perhaps then the buildings and grounds depart-
ment will join the movement by restraining its am-
bitiotis mower-pusher until after lecture hours.
OUR AGE AND BACON'S
Roger Bacon lived in a century when it was
necessary to conceal with the greatest care any in-
timation of real knowledge for it was an age when
the merest suggestion of truth condemned th wripr

plain the almost impenetrable cipher that Bacoa
was forced to use in a manuscript that has just
recently been discovered. This manuscript is of
the greatest historical importance and upon trans-
lation it has been found that Bacon was in the
possession of a telescope and a microscope long
before it was ,thought that these instruments had
been discovered. Little is known about the life of
Bacon, but it has been learned that twice he spent
long periods in prison accused of black magic. Not-
withstanding these persecutions Bacon continued
the study of the sciences in which he was so far in
advance of his time, and by the careful use of ci-
phers many of the great ideas of this thinker have
been preserved for us.
The age of Bacon was one of intolerance, an age
of repression and ignorance. How different was
his time compared with the twentieth century! To-
day great prizes are awarded the best contribution
to the sciences and the arts. Every means is pro-
vided for the furthering of knowledge and men
devote their lives in order to contribute some small
addition to the god which we praise so highly --
knowledge.
Roger Bacon fought the greater part of his life,
as het described it, "against the concealment of real
ignorance with the pretense of knowledge". Cer-
tainly even today in this supposedly enlightened
world it would be good to heed this axiom set
forth by the persecuted scientist of the thirteenth
century.
QUASI-COMEDIES
Since the beginning of the motion picture indus-
try a steady improvement has been evinced in
screen productions but in spite of this the comedies
have lagged behind. The average picture of this
class is positively apethetic and devoid of real
humor.
The public is thoroughly tired of the usual slap-
stick pie throwing contests that are being pre-
sented today. Many producers, after futile at-
tempts at the humorous, are forced to attempt to
bolster up. their productions with exhibitions of
shapely bathing beauties. While not denying the
charm lent by these graceful maidens, still this
scarcely confines itself to the ludicrous. If the pro-
ducers feel that these models are essential toa good
comedy it is to be hoped they will furnish them
real parts to play instead of having them appear in
roles that take no brains and less clothes.
Until producers start looking a little deeper into
human nature in search of the comical and droll the
average one and two reel comedies can only be a
draw-back to the progress of the screen.
Madame Curie is a little hasty in coming, out
flat-footed and saying she likes the United States -
without having heard jazz.

Too close to the water line played;
The lemon fell in,
Was unable to swim,

Of Henry Roff;

And it went off.

he has been unable to prepare a wire which will

She-And you say that the centerfielder is one
of the best players on the team?
He-Yes, that's what I said.
She-Well, if that's the case, why do they make
him play so far out?
Dear Erm:
What would you do if you had a house very dear
to you because of family reminiscences, but which{
if rented out, would easily yield you a comfortable
income? Yours, D. T.
Dear D. T.: After scouting the town for rumors,
we should suggest that you do as the people of
Sweden do when it wants to rain. You bet,
let it.
