KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
Though the Legislature created the University
in 1837, it was not opened until 1841. It has
grown to its present enrollment of neaHy I 1,000
from an original attendance of six students.
(Note:-The Daily will run one fact about the
University in this place every day.)
A CHANCE FOR THE SOPH
In the days when Michigan was as woolly as
the "old timers" would have us believe-if there
ever were such days-it may really have required
mob discipline to beat the incorrigible freshman
into a sense of decent mollification. For the safe-
ty of the little commonwealth of Ann Arbor it
may have been best to cow him out of his deter-
mination to paint the campus red. For fear he
might pull the then-popular slingshot on some un-
suspecting senior, it may have been best to turn his
nose into a peanut-propeller in the middle of State
But the wild west has faded, and with it has
gOne its counterpart in Ann Arbor. The idea of
destroying the fUniversity is no longer uppermost
in the mind of the first-year man. Deadly hatred
of upperclassmen, faculty, books, and degrees is no
longer his ruling passion. The average freshman
comes here with the idea of making himself a dyed-
in-the-wool Micigan student. He is loyal before he
sets eyes on, the campus. He wants to get the
Michigan "air," learn the Michigan songs, and get
to work. as soon as possible on Michigan's campus
or athletic activities. All he needs is the pointing
of a finger to set him going at top speed for the
best interests of the University. The mentor sys-
tem is going to supply the guidance; and if ever the
freshman forgets that not the almighty "I," but
Michigan, should come first, the regularly appoint-
ed committee on freshman conduct will take all
complaints and swiftly lift him back from the era
of insubordination to the realities of 1920.
The sophomore who refuses to recognize the
change is both a tragic and comic spectacle. He
is tragic, because he is hurting his alma mater by
keeping the obsolete custom of mob discipline in
vogue; and he alone will be responsible for any-
thing that may happen to him as a result of his mis-
take. He is comic, because he thinks he is doing
a worthyi act. Year by year this kind of student
has been becoming more and more of an undesira-
ble. To be sure, he sometimes takes revenge on
freshmen because he was himself mistreated the
preceding year. But some class is going to have
the honor of forgetting self for the good .of Mich-
igan. Men of 23, this is your greatest opportunity.
ROLL, PRESSES, ROLL !
Michigan's student publications have every
:hance in the world of making this a big year. They
have already proved themselves to be first rate
periodicals in comparatively lean years for copy
getting. Now we have the largest enrollment in
our history which means that there will be more
>pportunities to obtain material of general interest
:o the campus. Then too, we have several new
oaches whose work will be watched carefully, and
above all we have a new president' whose adminis-
tration must of necessity bring forth many depart-
ures from the old regime.
But unless the students take it upon themselves
to go out for the Chimes, the Gargoyle, the Michi-
anensian and the other publications, the best re-
ults in keeping with Michigan progress cannot be
obtained. The editors alone cannot be expected to
turn out high grade periodicals unless they have
the active backing of the students both in subscrip-
tions, and in literary contributions. It is up to us.
If we can write serious articles about campus ques-
tions we must do it and submit them to the Chimes.
If we have a gift for saying witty things we must
say them through the Gargoyle. If we have ar-
tistic ability we should use it for the Michiganen-
sian. And if we can do none of these things well,
many of us can go out and get subscriptions or ad-
vertisements much more readily than can the men
who write. Let's make it a heavy year for the
A DEAN OF STUDENT AFFAIRS
As another evidence of President Burton's in-
terest in the progress of the individual student he
has approved the project to inaugurate a new Uni-
versity position, that of dean of student affairs.
This dean would be in no sense of the word a po-
liceman but would serve, rather, as an authority
to whom the student can turn for advice and aid
both in school and outside matters.
This office is not a new thing. A dean of stu-
dent affairs already exists in several universities.
Many events in the past have shown the need of
such -an official at Michigan. Instances have occur-
red in which a student was arrested for overdraw-
ing his account. Other students have been over-
charged by landladies. Misunderstandings of this
character could be speedily settled through the
agency of the deati of student affairs who could in-
vestigate the justness of the student's complaint
and act on his behalf.
Acting in the capacity of adviser and mediator,
this dean would be the first official whose sole duty
it is to come in direct contact with the individual
student, talk matters over with him, get his view-
point, and act as his case merits. The man filling
this position would be a large asset to the Univer-
sity and, as such, should be welcomed by the en-
tire student body.
Ye Edtor's Prayer
Each night we pray this prayer,
"Lord, save from retribution
Those kindly souls fvho send
Each day a contribution."
If we only had one contribution a week from
everybody who reads this column and then mut-
ters, "How does he get that way" we figure we
would have enough material for two humor mag-
azines and the Gargoyle for two years.
Be Still, My Palpitating Heart
23-I hear that the chorus of "Take It From
Me" aren't going to wear their dresses any longer.
24 (agitatedly)-Is that so?

I am looking for a figure to personify Faith.
What would you recommend?
Why not a freshman writing in to the athletic

Our Daily Novelette
The crocusses had long since ceased their croak-
ing as Hugh strode buoyantly up the gravel walk
which led to his abode. A smile lighted his home-
ly features as he reflected that she would be wait-
ing for him. Yes, good old pal that she was, she
would be there waiting and watching, listening for
"Hello, Poll," he boomed expectantly as he threw
open the door.
A.deathlike silence greeted him.
Poll, gorgeously attired in resplendent finery
stared vacantly and unknowingly at him from an
"Hello, old girl," he repeated in a subdued voice.
Still no response from that beautiful, brilliant-
eyed creature who continued to regard him coldly.
What had happened?
Finally he dropped to his knees, his face close
"My God, Poll, don't you know me? It's Hugh,
your own little Hughie ?"
"Speak to me, tell me you know me!"
After what seemed an eternity to the man she
turned toward him.
"Arrwk - * $ ** ! !," yelled the parrot.
A sigh of relief overspread Hugh's face. "That's
more like," he said as he settled himself comfort-
ably in the armchair.
