SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1920.
WHAT WILL VICTORY MEAN?
Vlichigan has come within a few points of the
e 'champions of the west" in the season just
t. Michigan is proud of the team that held her
rdard so high, that twice carried it to victory
I twice brought it glory in a game fight that
led adversely. v
But Michigan has never been contente to stop
any Half Way house yet. Considering the sea-
r of 1921 as having its beginning now, let every
itball man, student, and alumnus open the year
"coats off" service and loyalty which should
ng us next fall the triumph we await. The last
> victories may bring us overconfidence, relaxa-
i of effort, lessened support. But if we inter-
t them aright, they will only strengthen our de-
nination to stop short of nothing but a chain-
nship.
A GAME WORTH THE CANDLE
Pointing out that of the $5,5oo,ooo expended in
structing the present buildings on the campus
the University of Michigan, $2,255,732 came in
vate contributions and $,ooo,oooo of the re-
in/der was withdrawn from the maintenance
d, the Lansing State Journal in Saturday's issue
s squarely before the people of Michigan the
t that "but comparatively little building has been
vided for by the state so the University today
es a problem, the only forward solution of which
hrough appropriations by the 1921 legislature to
et the imperative building needs of the institu-
Michigan will have to take her choice between
cation and politics," says the Lansing editor,
riting out that the only solution is to cut deep
the budgets for the various political boards
commissions which are now cumbering our
e adminstrative system.
acrifice of political funds in favor of educa'
will serve a triple purpose. It will rid the
e of expensive appointive lbodies born of legis-
ve buck-passing and effective only in raising
rolls. It will strengthen in the state legislative
y a precedent of recognition of the true value
iigher education. Finally, it will enable the Uni-
sity to cope with its new needs of building space
an increasing enrollment, fill its urgent re-
rement of new equipment, and broaden its cur-
lum facilities. Michigan's citizenry will find
a game worth the candle.
PAPYRI AND PROGRESS
'e of this age are prone to indulge in smug men-
back-pattings upon the remarkable progress we
e made during our regime upon this earth. We
it with self-sufficient pride to the wireless tele-
>h, the railroad, and all the rest of the well-
wn paraphernalia, as material evidence of our
sputable supeiiority to the peoples and ages
hwAvi nenrceded us-

So engrossed are we in marvelling at our own in-
genuity that our vanity ever recives a severe jolt
when some savant pops up and informs us that we
have been giving ourselves credit for originating
something that was a commonplace before our fam-
ily tree had started to sprout.
For instance, we have right at our own 'doorstep
a collection of papyri from back in the inconceiv-
able B. C.'s, containing such - so our unenlight-
ened minds would believe - modern instruments
as could be traced back to their birth at most a cen-
tury or two ago. Yet here, from ancient Egypt, are
receipts, accounts, census returns, declarations un-
der oath, and similar appurtenances - things
smacking of yesterday and today.
Some of these discoveries are enough to shake
ou-r belief in the existence of progress - to make
us believe that, instead of progress, there is only
change. When we consider the comparatively high
state of civilization of the Egyptians and ancient
Greeks, it is a wonder that we do not shrink in
shame at the puny changes that have been wrought
in the vast cycle of intervening years, instead of
boasting of our great and mighty steps of progress.
Certainly the spirit of the ancients, the intelligence
which made itself noticed in great art and litera-
ture, is not so widely ours as it was Rome's and
her predecessors'. Must -all our advances cater
solely to the material, to comfort and speed and
the gaining of wealth? Or are we to search again
for that truer civilization which lives in the hearts
and minds of a people?
Must we believe that man has always been in-
trinsically the same animal, the slave, of desires and
ways of satisfying them? Or shall we resolve to
turn change into progress?
NO PLACE FOR THE THIEF
The purloining of coats and hats goes too mer-
rily on about the campus. To be sure the Union
has explained the necessity of checking one's coats
and hats, but not everyone who visits the Union is
aware of this ruling. Neither are some students
cognizant of the thievery that has prevailed in
campus buildings for the past few years.
It seems hard to believe that University stu-
dents would be guilty of such petty theft as this.
Nevertheless the evidence seems to indicate that
some of the student body is guilty.
Stealing under the most pardonable conditions is
immoral. Certainly no student at this University
is so hard pressed for funds that it is necessary for
him to resort to such an expedient for- relief.' The
only other alternative is to suppose that one or more
of us is so unfortunate as to be thekvictim of klep-
tomania., If such be the case he or they 4hould be
in some institution for the mentally deranged rather
than at Michigan.
The campus straw vote for the presidency may
not have overfilled the ballot boxes, but give us a
chance to express our *pinon on whether classes
should be held Friday, November 26, and see what
happens.
The Red Cross is the one relief organization
which every class of people in America have a per-
sonal interest in supporting. Get its membership

I~ The Telescope
Help! Help! Help the Telescope!
To some unknown contrib is due our thanks for
the following:
A peach came walking down the street,
She was more than passing fair,
A nod, a smile, a half-closed, eye,
And the peach became a pair.
They had parted coldly.
There had been warmth in their meeting.
They had found themselves companion pieces in
the scheme of things-made for each other.
And now, the frigid parting - the strange

shrinking from each other.
Say, fellows, ain't it funny what a laundry can
do to a new pair of pajamas!
What has become of the old fashioned humor-
ists who used to convulse their audience with this
little dialogue:
"Well, I bought some moth balls the other night."
"And did you get any good out of them?"
"Not a bit. I 'stayed up till midnight throwing
them but didn't hit a single moth."
We don't want it understood that we always
emerge victorious in those little arguments we oc-
casionally have with our girl. , Only the other
night, she remarked that she wouldn't be able to
go with us to the Union dance next Friday as she
was going home to Detroit that night. After vainly
trying to induce her to change her mind we got
peeved and asks:
"And,.while you're in the city enjoying yourself
what'll I do with my week end?"
Our girl knotted her brows for a few seconds
and then replied in her sweet, modulated voice:
"I don't know, but I suggest that you put a hat
on it."
Now confidentially, fellows, wasn't that a wicked
one?
