Persons wishing to secure information concerning new for any

of all news to be printed that night.
The University Observatory was founded in
1852. The principal instruments at that time were
the meridian circle, which was used for the exact
determination of star positions, and a twelve inch
reflector, then one of the large telescopes of the
world. In 1911 a reflecting telescope with a 37 1-2
inch aperture was added to the equipment, and used
for stellar spectroscopic investigations. This in-
strument was designed and constructed in the Uni-
In 1912 the construction of a 24 inch refractor
was begun. It has not yet been completed on ac-
count of the failure of the glass works to produce
the' discs of glass required for the objective.
No jeweled loving cup but just an ordinary
earthen sjug will be the reward given the victors in
this afternoon's gridiron duel between the Varsity
and Minnesota. But to Michigan this bit of pot-
tery means more than a vase beat out of the finest
gold by the world's greatest artisans. Its recov-
ery will signify that Minnesota has been unable to
repeat last year's success - her first and only vic-
tory in fifteen years. To us it is the token which
will show that the Yostmen have blocked the lauded
"Minnesota shift" after it has reached a season's
perfection, and that the men of the Maize and Blue
have again given Minnesota-Michigan football
scores their traditional emphasis.
When the final whistle blows this afternoon
Michigan, we believe, is going to be on top, and
headed home with jug, cork, and contents in hand.
Something more than a lively athletic rivalry
gives Michigan and Minnesota a binding common
interest, for both institutions have enjoyed the
guidance of the same leader -- President Marion
L. Burton.
Alike we have profited by his friendly counsel,
his efforts to make education perform a greater
service to the world, and his insight into student
problems. To know President Burton is to like
him, and we are getting to know him better every
day. Michigan can never lose its friendly feeling
for its leader's former home nor forget the part
Minnesota has played in the career that brought
him to Ann Arbor.
Somebody is always discovering a perpetual mo-
tion machine, but none has ever been successful.
Today in spite of countless attempts of hopeful in-
ventors there is no perpetual motion machine i
existence on whose performance anyone would
trust his life or even risk a quarter.
Other men and women are constantly seeking to
improve the machines that are already in exist-
ence. Most of these mechnisms are imperfect but

they work. Those who devote their time to them
are making progress towards an ideal. These ma-
chines have their faults but we rely on them and
are served by them every day.
t Except as a topic of conversation, socialism has
never proved permanently successful. American
colonists tried it and failed. Since then like projects
in this country have shown themselves to be no
more than temporary and no foreign successes
have been substantiated. Like the perpetual motion
machine, socialistic economic systems have failed
as soon as they lost their original momentum -
the enthusiasm of their founders.
The friction caused by running contrary to the
desire of every human being to have something he
could call his own and to work best when not un-
der discipline, has always been too much for the
artificial mechanism of the dreamer.
The owner of a perpetual motion machine al-
ways contends that it will work as long as nobody
has proved that it won't. He feels that a man work-
ing on real engines should be ready, at a moment's
notice, to show why his mechanism is not what he
claims. The Intercollegiate Socialist society has
challenged the faculty to debate with it on social-
ism. The faculty, though not greatly interested,
has suggested confining the debate to a more or
less definite phase of socialism - government own-
ership of industry, for example.
The faculty, in entering such a debate, would be
performing a valuable service. People today seem
as gullible before false dreams as they ever were.
That fallacies must constantly bet denied and
shown in their true light is brought out sharply by
the repeated success of such get-rich-quick schemes
as the one Ponzi nearly "got away with." College
students will benefit by a skillful presentation of
both sides of the question, for only thus cai doubts
or prejudices be cleared away in the light of rea-
Ideas change with the times, and the advancing
years have turned many innovations that were once
ridiculed and sneered at into practical, working
realities. Co-education, a matter of much con-
troversy'and debate during the last century, has
been tried and found feasible, and even its oppo-
nents are now obliged to admit that it is a suc-
cess. The old-fashioned idea that women students
are not of a serious turn of mind no longer holds,
for they have proved themselves capable of coping
with men in studies and in business. The recent
appointment of a woman to a place of honor in the
Hall of Fame, and the achievements. of women,
too numerous to mention, who have made enviable
marks for themselves in various lines of endeavor,
are sufficient rebuttal of any arguments as to their
The girl who occupies herself solely with frivol-
ous thoughts, the flapper, the ambitious vampire,
is now in the same class as the man who lounges
through his university career, seeing only the joy-
ous froth of life, the dance hall, the jazz band, the
week-end "party." There is surely no harm in
mixing a little pleasure with one's work, but the
prescription will prove ineffective if the ratio is
constantly inverted. This kind of girl, who really
has no place in a university, according to the mod-
ern conception of co-education, is as far out of tune
with the times as her male counterpart.

The Boob Across the Hall
He slams the door with all his might,
He shuffles down the floor,
He makes enough commotion
For half a score or more.
If you're asleep he raps your door
To ask the time of day ;
He must have been a bell-hop
Before he came this way.

Week in, week out, from morn till night,
You can hear his Oliver click;
We've had peace once since he's been here
But that time he was sick.
When you chance to start a letter
To Her and wish to dream,
Along comes this hyena with -
"Now, what do you think of the team?"
Some day they'll build a cbllege
That won't need a single prof,
And they'll be so all-obliging
They'll leave the blue books off.
But if they'd please us best, we plead
Keep blue books, profs and all,
But grant us the right to choke the boob
That lives across the hall.
Clarice, you are probably right when you say
that if a fellow who loves books is called a book
worm, a fellow who likes to stay in bed might just.
as rightly be called a bed bug.
Eight o'clock classes I love best,
I love to rise before the rest.
I like to miss my breakfast, too,
I do, I do-like H-, I do!.
Famous Closing Lines
"The ring leader," he muttered as he saw the di-
rector of the Swiss bell ringers raise his baton.
