doors at night has opened a tempting field of ope-
ration for a band of petty thieves. The quickest
and most feasible method of stopping these rob-
beries lies with the fraternities themselves.
As none of the Greek letterites appear to be es-
pecially anxious to find out "what that noise is
in the, small hours of the morning, it might be sug-
gested that spring locks be installed and a number
of keys be made for the doors and these be dis-
tributed among the members. If this is done the
activities of the prowlers can be stopped.

Most of us are capable of carrying on some out-
side activity. All of our time is not devoted to the
strictly scholastic side of college life. The major-
ity of us have one or more outside activities. That
"or more" is the subject of this editorial.
To many of us try wholeheartedly to make a
success of several things at once and as a result
fail to do any one thing well. Diversity of ambi-
tions is the cause of our downfall here as it is apt
to be in later life, if we do not pick out one objec-
tive and keep everlastingly at it.
Underclassmen who wish to do something for
their University and for themselves should pick out
some one thing-publications, athletic manager-
ships, Union committee work, it 'matters not
which-and stick to that one thing through all of
their college years.
Those who do this and do it conscientiously will
deserve to get an important office in the elections at
the end of their junior year.
Having achieved success in some one thing, the
hard worker will find that his services are in de-
mand for other activities during his final year.
What is still better, he will step in, not as a tryout,
but rather as a leader.
STICK TO ONE ACTIVITY

Given to Library
Judge C. B. Grant, '58, presented the
Library with a manuscript poem by
the first president of the University,
Dr. Henry P. Tappan.
The manuscript is in the form of a.
letter to Mrs. W. W. Murphy and is in
the president's handwriting. Dr. Tap-1
pan wrote a number of poems, of
which only a few were published.
Two notes written and signed by
General George Washington were giv-
en to the Library by Mr: .M. A. Ives,
of Ann Arbor. One note is an order
to release a military prisoner from
jail on petition of the citizens of Dan- 4
The other is a pass permitting the
bearer and his negro servant to getj
by the pickets at Ramapo. Both notes
are in fragile condition and are good
specimens of Washington's handwrit-

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
Michigan's student publications, The Daily, The
Michiganensian, the Gargoyle, the Chimes, the
Students' Directory, the Wolverine, and the Ath-
letic program are published and controlled by the
Board in ,Control of Student Publications. This
organization consists of five members of the fac-
ulty, three of whom act as president, supervising
manager, and critic, besides three students, one of
whom is secretary.
Michigan is going to have a record student repre-
sentation at the Ohio State game Saturday. But
without an official yell leader, the cheering of the
rooters will be ineffective. - A conference ruling
prevents the Athletic association from using its
funds to send the Varsity cheer leader. The mat-
ter, therefore, lies in the hands of the students, who
must act quickly.
A small amount is all that is needed to cover the
expenses of one man. If all those who are loyal
enough to turn out to send the team off will raise
their school spirit one point farther and contribute,
the Michigan rooters will be led with the usual pep

INTERPRETATIVE DANCES TO
BE GIVEN AT THE WHITNEY
Fokine and Kokina are to appear at
the Whitney theater Saturday night,
Nov. 6, in a program of Russian inter-.
pretive dances. According to all re-
ports the performances promises to be
a rare opportunity for the public to
see something really worth while.
Fokine established his reputation
when he directed the staging of the'
Diaghileff ballet at the New York
Hippodrome, featuring Nijinski.

GET YOUR TICKET FOR THE SPECIAL
Fifteen hundred students have purchased tick-
ets for the O. S. U. football game in Columbus.
Of this number, only one hundred have applied at
the Union for railroad tickets on the Michigan
special. Judging by similar occasions in the past,
the "last minute" contingent is going to be so large
as to swamp the special, which will carry only cars
enough to accommodate the persons to whom
tickets have actually been sold.
The Union must know by 8 o'clock tonight just
how many are going, as the railroad company has
set that time as the limit for ordering the necessary
cars. Michigan is going to that game en masse,
and a large proportion of the fifteen hundred are
undoubtedly planning to take the special. They
will save themselves and others the discomfort of
standing up from Ann Arbor to Columbus by ap-
plying for their tickets on the special today.

When you've suggested to a friend
You wish he'd buy for you a coke,
What answer could be sadder than
"Sorry, Bud, but I'm dead broke."
First stude-I know a student here who has been
on a hunger strike since school started.
Second-On a hunger strike since school started?
Why, that's impossible.
First-Not at all. He's been boarding that
length of time at an Ann Arbor boarding house.
The other day one of our readers wrote in and
called us a "near wit."
For the benefit of those who may not know what
a "near wit" is we'll say he's the bird who, when he
finds a strawberry in the strawberry shortcake at a

THE FRENCH FELLOWSHIPS
Every war, whatever its purpose, has some bene-
ficial results. The recent world conflict, though it
claimed the lives of millions of human beings and
caused irreparable destruction of homes and prop-
erty, succeeded in establishing among the youth of
America and France a feeling of mutual under-
standing and fraternity of spirit. That this atti-
tude, which characterized the relations of the arm-
ies of both nations during the war, might be per-
petuated among future generations, there was or-
ganized a society known as the American Field
Service Fellowships for French Universities.
One hundred and twenty-seven men of the Field
service gave their lives in the cause of democracy,
and as a lasting memorial to these men, this or-
ganization will endow, commencing with the year
1921, twenty-five fellowships annually, each for a
year of study in French universities. By this
means, the society hopes to bring into closer con-
tact the scholars of the two countries.
Students would do well to set their aims at at-
taing one of these fellowships, for aside from the
moral aspect, they present an opportunity, for study
in universities which rank high among the world's
institutions of learning.
