KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
'he University of Michigan Union was organ-
and.incorporated under the laws of the state
Michigan in 7904. The new Union building
a little over one million dollars and the equip-
it two hundred thowsand. It is said to be the
building of its kind in the world.
BLOW THE WHISTLE!
oday is the first day of Michigan's 1920 foot-
season. Last year, as we all are aware, was
of surprising disillusionment to Michigan men.
many of us'had come to look upon athletic
:ess, especially on the gridiron, as the rightful
of every Michigan team. The several defeats
919 have taught us that our teams like those of.
-y other school are not immune from lost games.
his year we-are out to prove that Michigan can
e back. We'have an enlarged coaching staff,
-eater number of experienced men on the eligi-
list, and more complete football equipment than
had last year. The men on the squad are de-
iined to pput up th best game they know how
ifty motor cars loaded with Michigan alumni
to leave Detroit at noon for Ferry field. They
coming to demonstrate their loyalty to Michi-
and their faith in her team. The Varsity band
be there too.
is up to us to go down with the hand this af-
aon and prove that we are worthy of being rep-
nted by a fighting Michigan team. We must
onstrate anew the spirit that has made Michi-
famous in victory or defeat, throughout the
ONE WEEK LEFT
Only one week remains for those students who
desire to vote at the fall elections, and who have
not already registered, to get their names on the
rolls. Registrations may be sent in to each indi-
vidual's town or city clerk, but they must be re-
ceived on or before next Saturday, October 16.
Failure to register will deprive the tardy ones of'
the right to vote. With so much at stake this year
it is important that every student of age avail him-
self of this opportunity.
The Republican club will provde registered vot-
ers with application blanks for absent voter ballots.
These may be secured after next week at 234 Nick-
els Arcade, and should be sent in as early as pos-
sible, inasmuch as it is necessary to forward them
to the city clerk at the applicant's home address,
secure the ballots, and send them back filled out.
Opening of a short and snappy before-election
campaign by the party clubs should be an excellent
method of bringing out the votes. Political inter-
est, which is good for the University body, ran
high here at the time of ,the primaries, and only
waits the word to gain a new impetus. Students
should value their citizenship and make themselves
eligible for participation in the campaign by reg-
istering at once and making sure of their right to
vote in November.
MICHIGAN'S OFFICER SCHOOL.
War has few advocates today. It's unpleasant.
to say the least. And still, if it is agreed we may
have to fight again, obviously the only Way is to
go into battle well equipped for a speedy settle-
ment. Technical, theoretical, and practical experi-
ence are the first weapons in this equipment, and
trained officers are one of the largest single items
in a nation's military rating.
With the outlay of equipment which Michigan's
R. O. T. C. possesses, the co-operation of the col-
leges for academic instruction and credit, and the
summer camps, all three types of military experi-
ence are within the grasp of University sopho-
mores and freshmen. Upperclassmen should and
can point out the advantages an R. O. T. C. enroll-
ment offers, and freshmen who thnk themselves
possible officer material should consult with the
professor of military science and tactics.
IS HOOTING ROOTING?
A false impression of the purpose of cheering at
athletic contests is that its function is to "rattle"
or disconcert an opposing team into losing. This
practice, which has sometimes brought success to
bush league baseball teams playing on home dia-
monds; neither aids in the building up of power-
fil athletic teams nor speaks well for the sports-
manship of any university whose students employ
Hooting an opposing football or baseball player,
cheering vociferously every time a competitor is
rightfully or wrongfully penalized, or shouting to
drown out the signals of a rival quarterback, are
all practices that interfere with fair play and are
unworthy of any university body. Michigan has
kept unusually free of them.
Love's Labor Lost
Oh Susan dear, please hurry now,
And run and light a torch,
Methinks that some poor wretch has left
A babe upon our porch.
Oh Gretchen dear, don't worry now,
It's not a babe, but bother!
Some one has thrown upon out porch
Our own belove father.
As the Old Timer remarked after reading the
above pathetic ballad, "Those were the happy daze."
We are beginning to fear Michigan and Chicago
-the Wolverines because they beat their frosh by
four touchdowns, and the Maroons because Alonzo
A Stagg isn't fearing Purdue yet.-The Daily Il-
We have nothing against the Illini but we can't
help remarking in passing that if no news is good
news then the Illini must-certainly have a happy
bunch of readers.
What is an abstract noun?
Such ignorance particularly in a college student .
is indeed pitiful. We thought everybody knew that
an abstract noun was something you can think of
but not touch, as for instance, a red hot poker.

THE EIGHT THOUSAND ,
President Burton expressed it in the current
of Chimes, we have quantity, and must now
quality. There are eight thousand students
e campus today. Does this mean eight thous-
ifferent individuals each striving to serve'one
r or does it mean that miny men each serving
vn selfish whims and impulses, caring nothing

large egrollment means nothing except that

eight thousand is here with the purpose of

neaning. It means that we shall have more
