KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
During the war, the first type of submarine chas-
rs was developed for the government in the Uni-
ersity naval tank, forming the basement to the
ast wing of the Engineering buildigg and having
imensions of 30ox22 feet, with a ten foot depth.
dodels of merchant vessels for our allies were
lso developed and tested in the tank, while experi-
aents were made for the United States Shipping
oard and Emergency Fleet corporation to deter-
nine the most economical form of cargo 4essel.
Models made of paraffin wax with a mixture of
our per cent beeswax are used in all tests. -
AN'R. O. T. C. AERO UNIT
College training.to enable men to obtain commis-
ions in the reserve corps of'the army is rapidly
aining considerable headway among the various
nivrsities of the country, and now, if the latest
.an of the local R. O. T. C. unit goes through,
Aichig n is to have facilities for training reserve
irplan6 pilots..
It is needless to argue as to the worth of such
n organization and as to the advantages which
nay be gained from such training; but it may be
aid that while plans are already under way for
he establishment of such a unit here, nothing defi-
ite can be done unless at least one hundred Stu-
ents signify their willingness to enroll in the aero
>urse, should the R. 0. T. C. be successful in put-.
ng through such a plan.
Now is the time to help put the idea into opera-
on; and whether he signs up or not, no harm will
e done the interested individual in securing from
e department of military science. and tactics what
iformation regarding requirements and enrricu-
im is at present available.-{
"ONE BOOK A YEAR"
"Yet if each alumnus of the University would
ive us a single book a year, think how our Library
ould be increased," was a statement of Librarian
ishop a few days ago. At the present time, 4,000
>oks are received by the Library as gifts. Cer-
.inly, this will in time increase the number of
>oks, but when one considers that there are al-
ost fifty thousand living alumni of our Univer-
ty the chances for a mammoth library are appar-
it if each of these could be induced to donate one
ok a year.
All good standard books are acceptable, even
ough the Library officials prefer rare ones: those
scure books which find their way into the dark
rners of countless bookshops throughout the
untry. They often seem valueless to the neo-
yte, yet would be regarded as priceless posses-
rns of our Library. For example, one time an
nus accidently found two old copies of a book
i the Class of Sciences which was written in the
.ys when the University was, not of Michigan,

but of the Territory of Michigan. He gave one of
these to the Library, little thinking that it was des-
tined to become one of the most treasured volumes
of today.
Another time, when the United States first eti-
tered the war, an alumnus secured some copies of
German propaganda pamphlets which were pub-
lished by an out-of-the-way printer in a small Ohio
village. Thinking they might be of interest to the
University, he mailed them'in. Today Michigan's
Library is undoubtedly the only one in the country
to possess these circulars. They are of inestimable
value for historical purposes, but on account of the
remarks they contained, have not yet been released
to the public.
Here is a wonderful opportunity for every alum-
nus to really benefit his University. The cost
would be nothing, the time expended, a trifle. Why
not adopt a new alumni slogan, "We pledge our-
selves to give one book a year to make our Library,
the first of all colleges of America." The 1921 class
could well take the first step.
COME OUT FOR SWIMMING
Swimming is rapidly becoming a recognized sport
here at Michigan. Last year our unofficial team,
although unable to win in either of the mfeets it
entered and greatly hampered by a lack of ade-
quate facilities for practice, made a reputable show-
ing, considering that it was practically the first sea-
son in which the University had boasted even an in--
formal aquatic squad.
Now, with the Union pool practically assured
with the best of facilities in view for the training
of swimmers, acall is being issued by Coach Dru-
lard for tryouts. It is an opportunity for men with
ability not only to help establish swimming on a
permanent and recognized footing at the Univer-
sity, and to put Michigan on the map in this bratich
of athletics, but it is also a chance for the men of
untried natatorial talents to show what they can do
and to receive some worthwhile training.
It behooves every swimmer, both for his own
sake and that of his University, to answer the
swimming call at once
The Telescope
HUMOR CONTEST
The long debated question of whether women,
and University women in particular, have as strong
a sense of humor as the men is at last to be defi-
nitely settled at Michigan. Towards this end the
Telescope has decided to hold a Humor Contest
open to all men and women attending the Univer-
sity.
The plan is as follows: For every contribution
turned in by one of the men, which we see fit to
publish in these columns, a credit of one point shall
be given the men. For every one turned in by the
University women, on account of the relative dif-
ference in numbers, a credit of three points shall be
given.
The contest will close at midnight Dec. 3 and
the side having the largest number of points to its
credit shall be declared the winner. Mail all con-
tributions to Noah Count, Care Michigan Daily.
Let's go, Men! Whadya say, Girls!
WE DO NOT WANT THE CLASS OF
ALIENS WHOSE FEET ARE IN THIS
COUNTRY AND THEIR HEARTS IN THEIR
HOME COUNTRY.-From a recent speech by a
prominent United States senator.
Why not, sen? At least we've got the biggest
part of them over here.
You Win
Professor-And now can any one in the class
call to mind a passage that more completely con-
notes the idea of complete idleness than the pass-
age from Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mar-
iner.

Stude-Certainly, just say, "The student was a
member of an honorary society."
Sunday, as per our usual custom, we went with
our girl to church. The minister during the course
of the sermon made a most eloquent appeal for
helping out the poor heathens in Africa.
After the sermon the plate was passed. When we
had successfully passed this ordeal our-girl leaned
over and in a loud stage whisper asks:
"Didn't the minister say the collection was for
the poor African savages who don't even have
clothes ?"
Terribly embarrassed at this rather indelicate
question we managed between our blushes to gar-
gle a "Yes."
Even this did not exactly satisfy our girl for
she leaned over a minute later and asks again in
that same confidential whisper:,
"Well, if they haven't any clothes, what was
your idea of dropping a pants button in the plate?"
Now, fellows, ain't that girl of ours great?
Dear Noah:
Can you advance any reason why kimona man-
ufacturers are beginning to make their product out
of the fibres of the banana tree? Plato Beans.
The reason is self-evident - they would be very
easy to slip on.
Famous Closing Lines

he saw the pugilist knockout his opponent.
