KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
Such graduates as Libetty E. Holden, '58, edi-
- and publisher of the Cleveland Plain Dealer;
ach Conger, in charge of the European service of
Associated Press during the war; Karl Harri-
n, '98, editor of the Ladies Home Journal; and
ward S. Beck, '93, managing editor of the Chi-
o Tribune, are among those who uphold Michi-

A DEFENSE OF ARTIFICIALITY
college life is frequently condemned by "prac-
l" men because it is artificial. We sometimes
nder if such condemnation is entirely justified.
dost of us who are attending universities or col-
as are preparing for business. Later on we will
devoting by far the'greater portion of our time
economic ends pure and simple, which means
t we will be working for a living. Then the
blems of strikes and lockouts, of price regula-
x according to supply and demand will be up-
most in our minds. We will have entered the
na of active competition that we may survive.
hider these conditions, when the question at
te is onie of dollars and cents to us, how many
there be who will spend their time in studying
iciples ? We will be too close to the proposition
If to see 'it fairly as a whole. Our judgments
be warped by bias arising out of the pocket-
k, which is, ;by the way, the most obdurate bias
wn. We cannot then form just decisions tn-
we have a groundwork of theory which is based
1n all of the elements entering into the situation.

TALKING POINTS FOR THE POOL
Michigan students are today pledging their sup-
port to the drive which is to complete the Union
swimming pool and make the building itself a fin-
ished monument to Michigan spirit. Here are a
few good talking points for use when we button-
hole that alumnus during thke holidays with a view
to securing a donation.
In the first place, the completion of the pool will
mark the final establishment of the Michigan Union
as one of the greatest club projects, and the first of
its kind, to be put through by any university in the
country. At the present time the pool is the only
part of the building which is not in use and, while
a little work in the line of decoration and the like
remains to be done, the finishing of the pool, show-
ers and dressing rooms, the tiling of the walls and
floor, and the installation of the specially-designed
purifying machinery will be the final step to place
every part of the building in active daily use.
What is more, the pool will not only make possi-
ble a development of what has heretofore been a
neglected sport at Michigan and permit the stu-
dents to partake of one of the most healthful of ex-
ercises, but it will give Michigan added facilities
for the training of : swimming team which may be
a credit to her. It will make the completed build-
ing one more achievement to which the Michigan
alumnus may point with pride, and will provide
what is sure to be one of the University's greatest
BLACKFACE DE LUXE
A minstrel show produced on the same lavish
scale as the Union Opera - such is to be the char-
acter of "Minstrelsy," the Mandolin and Glee
club's initial. performance under the Union man-
agement, to be presented next Wednesday, Thurs-
day, and Friday at the Whitney.
With the wealth of playing and singing talent
in the Glee and Mandolin club, the directors of
"Minstrelsy" have developed a program of care-
free comedy into which are sandwiched numerous--
singing, dancing, and stringed instrument special-
ties, as well as rapid-fire repartee dealing with cam-
From the character of those having to do with
"Minstrelsy" and the progress that has been made
toward success so far, the musical club's program
bids fair to justify the hope that it will take place
alongside the Opera.

And then he rummaged 'round a while,
And looked in Claude Brown's store
Until he had a big old coat
Which reached nigh to the floor.
He let his trousers sag and bag,
Round a bowl they cut his hair,
Then wound his neck with a nice tan scarf;
As to style - he's just all there.
