the class of 1919, American Rhodes Scholars,
given in the grill room of R. M. S. "Aquitania,"
while the class was en route to Southampton in
Septemb'er of this year.
Inside the menu pamphlet were the names of the
fortunate scholars and the histories of the colleges
they were to attend at Oxford. For instance, there
was Balliol college, founded 1268 -,and here our
impressions of the extreme age of Michigan tradi-
tions suffered a shock, and we came to realize that
if there is nothing new under the sun, it is just as
true that there is Nothing so old but something else
is older. Incidentally, it is mentioned that Adam
Smith and Robert Southey were members of this
Then there's Christ Church college - very
young, founded as late as 1525, and numbering
among its alumni the Duke of Wellington, Sir
Robert Peel, Sir Philip Sydney, John Locke, Wil-
liam Penn, John and Charles Wesley, Ben Jonson
and John Ruskin. Turning the page, we found
that the alumni of Queen's college include Henry
V and the Black Prince, who we had always thought
belonged to nothing but ancient history textbooks.
Oxford is the result of centuries of true academic
atmosphere - not the decadent sort, but the kind
that produces generations of great men. The world
does not scorn its age nor its traditions, but sends
the flower of the scholars of all nations to learn in
its classrooms. Age in itself does not spellgreat-
ness, and the University of Michigan is in the soul
of every man and woman of its student body the
greatest university of all. But from Oxford we
can learn the great power of a fine history, and ap-
preciate the necessity of upholding our traditions,
thereby to build up a greater institution, a stronger
loyalty, and the true college atmosphere that even
in its comparative youth is coming to distinguish
THEIR FIRST REWARD
Over the long trail that climbs beyond Geddes
heights and into the hills and dales to the noth-
eastward, sixty white-clad freshman cross country
tryouts were seen Saturday morning, with fists
clenched and feet beating swiftly on the paths, in a
three mile race which brought cups to three of
them and class numerals to six.
These men are the half-milers, milrs, two mil-
ers and cross country men of Michigan's near fu-
ture on the indoor track and the cinders. Every
day through what has been to them a weary fall
they have trained down to running trim by the en-
durance-testing strain of a three to five mile run.
Yesterday, a few hours before their fellow harriers
on the Varsity met M. A. C. at East Lansing, they
competed for the first real recognition they have re-
ceived during their long fall task of conditioning
The spirit of these men - and it is the spirit of
all those who, from the dim past, have fought on
track and court and gridiron for the Maize and
Blue - is the true spirit of loyalty, which works
on unflinchingly without thought of reward. These
freshmen will be better Michigan men for it when
they come back next fall, besides better material
for the 'Varsity. To the freshman who tries,
whether it be in athletics or campus activities,
SMichigan's hand is always open. Harriers of '24,
success to you.
Even if "The Battle of Ann Arbor" was your
only major engagement, send for that uniform!

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
The University of Michigan Aeronautical so-
ciety was founded last spring. Ay ex-aviation serv-
ice man or member of any of the aeronautical
classes of the University is eligible to membership.
The purpose of the organization is to interest the
members in flying, besides giving them a working
knowledge of the subject.
ARE WE DOWNHEARTED?
Michigan lost, but 'she lost fighting. Hoodooed
again by the same bad luck that proved fatal in the
Illinois game, the Yostmen put every ounce of
their strength toward staging a "Michigan come
back" and never conceded themselves beaten until
the referee's whistle killed all hope. To a team
instilled with such fight as this there is no disgrace
The game is a hard pill for all Michigan men to
swallow for it completely blasts all our hopes of
becoming this year's Conference champions. Com-
ing after our "near-victory" over Illinois, as it
does, and being the game 'which we had all set our
hearts on winning, it threatens the Michigan spirit
lately so strong in our breasts.
But now every one of us is in the position the
team was yesterday. The game is going against
us. Shall we give up? The team didn't. If we
did we would not be true Michigan men. Let's
show the team the same fight they have shown us,
and redouble our efforts for a win in every game
left on our schedule.
Upperclassmen envy first year students for theirj
exclusive privilege of. hearing President Burton
address them in his "Talks to Freshman" series.
Some have even yielded to an irresistible tempta-
tion and become "freshmen for a day" so that they
might share in the good fortune of the yearlings.
In so doing they make no mistake, as far more
unusual means than this have been resorted to in
order to hear our new president speak.
This fall some of the very students who took the
least interest in the lectures last year are regretting
that they did not make the full use of their oppor-
tunity and would welcome the repetition of the
In the main the members of the class of '24 have
realized the significance of these lectures, but the
attendance isreported to have fallen off since the
initial meeting. The freshman class, by unani-
mously attending these talks, will show that it has
a true sense of values.
The other day, just as we were pondering on the
excellence of Michigan's fine old traditions and the
names of her famous alumni, there came to our
hand a menu bf the Cunard line, for a dinner to
ow Large is an Atom?
ATOMS are so infinitesinal that to be seen'under the most power-
ful microscope one hundred million must be grouped. The atom
used to be the smallest indivisible unit of matter. When the X-Rays
and radium were discovered physicists found that they were dealing
with smaller things than atoms-with particles they call "electrons."
Yes, Clarice, you are right in saying that now
that the great drink question (Who's going to buy
the next round?) has been solved the greatest prob-
lem confronting the American people today is:
"Why do the seasons spring from winter and
fall from summer to winter?"
Dear Noah :
In Omar Khayyam the following figure of speech
appears, "The bird of time is on the wing." What
is the reference here? Studious.
I suppose Omar was referring to the bird in a

Atoms are built up of electrons, just as the solar system is built up
of sun and planets. Magnify'the hydrogen atom, says Sir Oliver
Lodge, to the size of a cathedral, and an electron, in comparison, will
be no bigger than a bird-shot.
Not much substantial progress can be made in chemical and elec-
trical industries unless the action of electrons is studied. For that
reason the chemists and physicists in the Research Laboratories of the
General Electric Co1npany are as muclh concerned with the very con-
stitution of matter as they are with the development of new inven-
tions. They use the X-Ray tube as if it were a machine-gun; for by
its means electrons are shot at targets in new ways so as to reveal more
about the structure of matter.
As the result of such experiments, the X-Ray tube has been greatly
improved and the vacuum tube, now so indispensable in radio com-
munication, has been developed into a kind of trigger device for guid.
ing electrons by radio waves.
Years may thus be spent in what seems to be merely a purely
"theoretical". investigation. Yet nothing is so practical as a good
theory. The whole structure of modern mechanical engineering is
reared on Newton's laws of gravitation and motion-theories stated'
in the form of immutable propositions.
In the past the theories that resulted from purely scientific re-
search usually came from the-university laboratories, whereupon thbe
industries applied them. The Research Laboratories of the General
Electric Company conceive it as p'art of their task to explore the un-
known in the same spirit, even though there may be no immediate
commercial goal in view. Sooner or later the world profits by such
research in pure science. Wireless communication, for example, was
accomplished largely as the result of Herz's brilliant series of purely
scientific experiments demonstrating the existence of wireless waves.

Once again the charge of being a co-ed hater
has cast its blighting shadow over our young life.
A young lady of our acquaintance came up to us the
other day and said, "Is it true, Jack, that you told
several of your friends the other night that you
didn't like co-eds ?"
Naturally we were very indignant that we should
have been thus misquoted and misunderstood but
we finally managed to gain control of ourself and
answered with becoming indignity:
"Not at all. We never said anything about not
liking the co-eds. What we said was that the more
ew see of co-eds the better we like eighth grade
