Just what is at the bottom of this ruling is not
known, but, in view of the fact that hockey is
strictly an informal sport here and as such is en-
titled to use any material available on the campus,
this decision of the association seems entirely un-
founded. In fact, it will work a hardship on the
team by eliminating from the season's contests a
number of excellent players, some freshmen, some
otherwise ineligible, whereas last year two of the
best men on the squad were from the first year
class. But aside from this, it seems unreasonable
to force Varsity standards upon a team to which
Varsity-rating has been denied
Incidentally, Coach Fred Fletcher is asking now
for material for this year's squad and is particu-
larly desirous of obtaining goal guards at this time.
Men for this position can begin practice at once,
before the cold weather comes, and it is the desire
of the coaching staff to get practice started as soon
as possible so as to insu re good guard work.
A year ago Michigan's hockey squad showed ex-
cellent ability and finished with a loo per cent
standing and this season it will probably get into
some informal Conference competition. Let's get
behind the sport' and .help the team uphold its al-
ready excellent reputation.
"Duke" Dunne, who has been selected captain of
the Varsity football squad for next year, is known
to everyone as the "fightin' Irishman" that he is.
He has the grit and the qualities of 'leadership
which make for a real leader, and when he takes his
place at the head of the squad next fall, he will hec
further strengthened by the knowledge that the
campus is back of him to a man.
':24 FAILS TO TURN OUT
When a class has problems to settle which con-
cern every one of its members, and when it desires
to take action on these maitters, it calls a meeting,
through a formal announcement of the officers.
When only a mere handful of persons respond to
the summons, then there is something vitally wrong
with that class.
While it applies to the entire campus, the refer-
ence is primarily to the freshman fits. Out of an
approximate roll of i,500 only 300 were present at
the last class meeting. This is highly regrettable,
for the class of '24 should realize'that these meet-
ings are the one means for establishing a spirit of
comradeship and friendliness among its members,
and also serve the purpose of upholding the repu-
tation of the class and providing a truly represen-
tative vote on class matters and class officials.
The freshman year of any class is its great
opportunity to make its actions serve as an envia-
ble precedent for the years to follow, and attend-
ance at class meetings and other functions is a big
step towards the attainment of this end.

WHO IS BLOCKING THE DROP?
"Who is standin between boarding house pa-
ons and the tremendous declines in wholesale
od prices that have taken place in the last four
onths all over the country?" was the question
ked three days ago by The Daily. "Is it the whole-
ler, the retailer, or the boarding house proprie-

A survey of the Ann Arbor food market for the
>urpose of answering this question brings out these
facts: Both the wholesaler and the retailer have
>een passing on reductions; the boarding house
>roprietors have not.
Wholesalers have, for example, cut sugar prices
o a third of what they were last spring, have re-
luced their meat prices and especially their pork
luotations several cents a pound, have cut the price
>f coffee in two and are selling it on a pre-war
>asis, and are sharing a flour decline of from sev-
nteen dollars a barrel in May to nine dollars and
ixty-five cents today.
The same is true of the retailers. In their field
,ubstantial reductions have taken= place in the prices
f basic commodities such as bread, meat, canned
oods of certain brands, and butter. The following
eclines in the prices of meats which count heavily
i the cost of board have been revealed: Since
October pork chops have gone down a third, cheap
rades of beef havefallen off from ten to twenty
er cent, and mutton has been reduced from thirty
> twenty-five cents.
All reductions made by food dealers have not
een mentioned by any means, but enough in-
ances-"have been cited to indicate that the middle-
ien have been relaying declines.
Who, then, is keeping board rates at artificial
eights? The boarding house proprietors alone
ave not revised their tariffs. Some hope is to be
>und in the intimation prices may be reduced after
hristmas, vacation, but conditions do not warrant
lay. "Overhead" may have justified raising
tes this summer and during the early part of the

se the rates that prevail now in the face of the
eak in food prices that has taken place since

3. Willie, the teacher had no right to whip you
after she asked for a sentence containing grue-

4. Don't be downhearted, Harry. The secret
of being popular at college is to appear good and
studious, taking good care, however, to be neither.
The other evening when our girl and we were
holding a little class in oral expression we inti-
mated that we liked her pretty well.
"Oh, yes," she titters, "but remember what.
We registered ignorance and asks:
"Shakespeare said: 'All men are liars.'"
That was a pretty hot shot so we gets back to the
only subject on which our girl agrees with us and
remarks to her that she is the best looking girl we
She tries to look like Cut No. 7, Coy Though

we comies back with:
"Yeh, but remember what Shakespeare said."
