account of the war" has passed. "Increased cost
of overhead" is an ever-ready alibi ,of marvelous
elasticity, which is called in time after time to ex-
plain to incredulous patrons why what costs less
must sell for more.
It would be very unusual, to say the least, if
overhead should increase with such precision as to
take up each decline in food prices as it occurs. It
is also significant that grocers, whose overhead is
in general determined by the same "factors as that
of boarding house proprietors, that is, rent, and so
forth, should find that their overhead does not au-
tomatically grow bigger to absorb each decrease
in the prices of food.
"Overhead" is obviously being sadly overworked.
ANSWERING A REAL QUESTION
Emory Thomason, business manager of the Chi-
cago Tribune, speaking at the first of the series of
Sunday afternoon meetings at the Union, caught
the spirit of what the Union is doing to help stu-
dents defnitely answer the question "What am I
going to do after I leave the University?" How
many of us do know? Mr. Thomason's words were
stripped of oratory - they were practical and
straight from the shoulder. No doubt all of his
hearers had a clearer conception of journalism after
listening to the talk. Typical of the informality of
the meeting was the speaker's readiness to answer
any questions asked by the students.
After Christmas the- Union will bring to Ann Ar-
bor other specialists in business, and the profes-
sions. Men will derive a great amount of practi-
cal good by hearing them.
WEAR IT RIGHT SIDE OUT
One coach remarks with justice on the too prev-
alent practice of "M" men wearing their Varsity
sweaters with the "M" inside. The big block let-
ter should be a matter of pride to every man who
has fought hard to win it. No real Michigan stu-
dent will consider him a braggart if he wears- the
sign of loyalty and skill to which he is entitled, and
"the wearing of the 'M'" should be one .of the
greatest of Michigan's inspirations to her coming
athletes. Wear Michigan's sweater right side out.

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
Michigan was the second university to perma-
ntly establish a Forestry department, being pre-
led only by Yale, with whom she now shares
leading honors in that subject. For the ex-
rimental production of forest crops, the depart-
nt makes use of an eighty acre forestry farm
esented by Arthur Hill in 1904. This is a model
forest on a small scale, and affords practical ex-
rience for students taking the course.
MAKE "SANTA CLAUS" COME TRUE
With the reappearance of winter, the time has
-ived when confidential letters of request find
ir way up the kitchen chimney and single-sylla-
d prayers to Santa Claus are haltingly evoked
ch night by little tots who gaze towards the ap-
>aching day of Christmas with 1ll the awe and ex-
:tancy of childish fancy.
It has been the praiseworthy custom to play the
rt of Santa to the poor children of Ann Arbor
d to answer the pleas of those small unfortu-
tes whose stockings would otherwise remain un-
d onChristmas eve. This movement has been
ry successful in that a great number of young-
rs are sent to their homes each year cleaned, all
cked out in a new set of clothes, and laden with
esents, after an evening in which they have
ached the heights of childish joy, dined, can-
d, toasted, sung, and celebrated as neverbefore.
But in order that the whole student body of
ichigan may be included in this year's adminis-
tion of good cheer, a large scale Christmas party
s been planned, to be made possible by donations
>m all those who desire to have a share in giving
e poor children of Ann Arbor a happier Christ-
ts. Boxes for this collection will be found in
nspicuous places of the campus today, and those
io answer the requests of Ann Arbor's unfortu-
tes will be helping to make Christmas a time of
ppinesstfordall, and will be fulfilling the true
irt of the day.
In spite of the steady decline in the price of the
ncipal food commodities which has now reached
point where boarding houses can buy items of
od for prices which are much less than those
ing in the summer and on an average are act-
lly ten to fifteen per cent less than those of last
1 when board was approximately a dollar a week
ver, a large share of the boarding house proprie-
's remain obdurate.
The failure of the "restauranteers" to revise their
es is especially noticeable as in the past they
ve never been slow to revise prices in accord-,
:e with increased costs.
To explain the delay in revision would indeed be
icult it if were not for the blanket excuse which
1 fit almost any set of circumstances and which
the only dependable standby left, now that "on
THE HUNGRY SCUFFLERS
(Cornell Daily Sun)
No student is compelled to take any course in this
universityr But those who deliberately try to bring
a lecture to an end a few moments before the clok
strikes by making sounds of departure with the
feet, are taking an attitude that they are held some
placeagainst their will. It need hardly be said that
in addition they are showing a discourtesy that
would bring a blush of shame under any other cir-
cumstances. Why go after a college education be-
fore being grounded in primary school manners?

Due to an oversight it had been previously an-
nounced that the Contest would close on Dec. 31.
The judges have now decreed that the Contest shall
close on Thursday, Dec. i6, at midnight, and the
final result announced in Friday's Daily.
In order to settle the much debated question for
once and for all time we haye decided to pick an
official All-American. Or mythical eleven follows:
Ends-Doc and Schmuck. No one has ever
tried to get around either of these men without be-
ing thrown for a big loss.
Tackles-Lydia Pinkham and Doane. -Their
presence in the line would materially strengthen
and bolster it up.
- Right Guard-Cox. His inability to run well is
more than balanced by his mastery of the art of
Left Guard-Professor Turner. Anyone who
has ever taken a blue book, from him will testify
that he is one of the most vigilant and wide-awake
guards in the country.
Center-Senator Harding is given the pivotal
position because of his great experience and un-
questioned ability at passing - the buck.
Quarterback-Ponzi. His creditors all over the
country are agreed in acclaiming him the small-
est piece of change in the land.
Right Halfback-Railroad Jack. A man unsur-
passed on aerial attack.
Left Halfback-Pavlowa. A player who would
be on her toes all the time and could be used to do
most of the kicking.
Full Back-Eugene. Debs. A wonder behind a
stone wall defense.
Browns have a baby girl,
Their household's in a flutter,
They named her Oleomargarine
Because they have but her.
We understand a petition is being circulated
around the campus today that the School of Music
give all its future recitals in duet form. While we
are not sure it will add to the effectiveness of the
recitals it will at least divide the responsibility.
