KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
According to the mast recent count, there are
49,o43 living former students of the University.
Since Michigan has been in existence 36,oo2 stu-
dents have been given diplomas and 29,086 of
these are living at the present time. The alumni
have given to the University alhost four million
dollars in donations.
THE LIFE MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
The Union drive for life memberships-starts to-
day. Our Alumni have shown that they are be-
hind us by raising funds for the original cost of
constructing the finest building of its kind in the
It is up to u to demonstrate to them that we are
worthy of the support which they have so gener-
ously extended. The most practical proof lies in
giving to the, Union a guarantee that it will not be
lacking in funds to meet running expenses. The
only sure way of doing this is to sign up the life
The goal set is two thousand, five hundred new
members. With this number of pledges in hand
the Union officials feel certain, although no definite1
promises can be made as yet, that the amount nec-.
essary for the completion of both the tank and the
reading room will be forthcoming.
Weneed that tank ; we need the reading room
and the new tap-room. Without loyalty we can-
not have them. Sign the slip when the committee-
men request it and help the good work along.
THE FOOTBALL TICKET DILEMMA
There is no use in trying to smooth over the dis-
,appointment created by failure of thousands of
students and alumni to secure seats for the Chicago
game in spite of application before the closing
date. Mixups reported to the Student council or
brought to notice in other ways showed that in
some cases the distribution, however impersonal
it may have been, worked unfairness which has
rankled in the hearts of those who believed them-
selves ill-treated. The condemnatory posters scat-
tered around Ann Arbor were unfortunate, but
they arose from a very sincere and deep-seated
agitation against the present system-.
The chairman of the Board in Control of Ath-
letics, in his frank statement regarding the situa-
fion, has freely admitted that a radical revision is
necessary, -and it must be presumed that the Ath-
letic association intends to make a change before
next season. Charges of unnecessary favoritism
and inefficiency in the ticket distribution may' be
unfounded, or based purely on the unexpectedly
large sale for the Chicago game; but a continued
failure such as that of the present season would be
a misfortune which the University would not be in
a temper to abide. It is gratifying to know that
the officials realize the necessity of a change and
intend to create an efficient system.
No one will deny that a number of tickets should
be laid away for certain persons whose service to
the University has been unusuall, either as under-
graduates or as alumni. A man who played three
years on a varsity team, for instance, certainly de-
serves special consideration. It seems that the best
solution lies in publicity. If the officials announced
beforehand-- exactly how many tickets each group
would have reserved for their orders - alumni,
student body, outsiders, and the special group men-
tioned above - stating just where the seats were
located and when the sle would start, a great step
forward would be taken. In as much as the Ath-
letic association is the body most interested in the
matter, it will undoubtedly take steps to prevent a
recurrence of the 1920 dilemma, and necessity will
probably be the creator of a system better than any
we can suggest. the student body is eagerly await-
ing such a change.
WHY NOT MINOR SPORTS?
Although Michigan has, for the past two years,
had swimming, hockey, and soccer teams, and al-
though she has a number of other sports which are
at present apparently noi considered worthy to
come under the title "Varsity," she has been utiliz-
ing material in these branches of athletics without
giving any great amount of credit to the men who
have given their time toward making these sports
Last year Michigan's hockey team played five
games and won five ; last year, too, the soccer team
won four out of the five games played. Men who
turned out and worked to make those teams suc-
cessful received only numerals as a reward. The
same is true of swimming. Last season we had a
good swimming turnout and, in spite of the rather
poor facilities for practice which naturally ham-
pered the team, the spirit was good and the team
was entered in two meets.
J Just now there are seven branches of athletics
applying for recognition as minor Varsity sports:
swimming, hockey, soccer, cross-country, golf, box-
ing and wrestling. Of these, swimming and wrest-
ling are Conference sports, but under the present
system of the Atheltic association, men taking part
in them do not receive an "M" for their pains.
Cross-country men, it is true, can receive an "M" if
they qualify in a Conference meet, but the most
credit they receive for participation in the regular
dual meets is a "C.C,C."
Naturally there would be difficulties involved in
making a change, but the possibility of forming a
class of minor Varsity sports and thus giving men
taking part in them an appropriate award, would
seem to be a wise and not wholly imptacticable
Almost to a man the University subscribed to life
memberships when the Union canvassers made the
rounds last year. Michigan's newest class has
shown itself so far to be up to the standard in loy-
alty; this week's campaign will be the final proof

By popular request, we take pleasure in reprint-

in the Telescope last year, literally took the cam-
