"canned-gds-in-the-cellar" bubble of recalcitrant
Tf, as boarding house managers admit, food can
be served at lower rates at a profit because of the
thirty-three and a third per cent decline which See-
retary Meredith declares has taken place in the price
paid the farmer for his products, the conclusion is
unavoidable-that to charge last summer's board tar-
iffs now is exhorbitant.
In view of this the only fair policy of the board-
ing. house operators who have taken no steps to re-
vise their rates is to fall- in line behind the managers
who manage to keep one eye on the interests of
their patrons even while focusing the other on
profits. We await that drop after vacation.
THE COMMERCE CLUB PROGRAM
When graduation time rolls around, and the stu-
dent, armed with his sheepskin and a well-meaning
degree, determinedly launches forth on his cam-
paign to conquer the world of business, he is
brought to a sudden halt by practical, every-day
problems which his college training has not wholly
prepared him for, This is especially true of gradu-
ates of the literary college, where theory plays a
part of parallel importance with practical applica-
tion, and book study takes the place of actual ex-
The fact remains, therefore, that students in at-
tendance at universities would greatly benefit by
hearing from those who have made their marks in
the world, and whb have been confronted with the
same problems which the average college graduate
must face. To this end, a new Commerce club is
being organized, whose main purpose is to bring to
Ann .Arbor men of natiotial repute in commercial
life, and whose advice backed up by experience
Would be of material aid to all college students con-
templating business careers.
The club is now in process of formation, and is
aiming to enrollas members all students pursuing
courses in economics, political science and sociol-
ogy, upon whose aid and co-operation its success in
securing these speakers' depends. Surely an organ-
ization with such a commendable purpose is worthy
of the whole-hearted support of all who seek more
The minstrel show this year missed about a dozen
good jokes bearing the title "Professor," not to
speak of a good many others carrying the name
"B. M. O. C." and a whole line of excellent quips
on campus foibles. Humor is one of the world's
most puissant powers; let's use it next year, well
daubed with local color.
AP little time spent during vacation and a com-
pleted Union pool or complete relaxation and an
empty cement-lined hole -- which is it to be?

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
One of the first chemistry courses in any Ameri-
can university was established, and the first build-
ing ever dedicated exclusively as a Chemical Lab-
oratory was constructed by the University of Michi-
gan during the early part of President Tappan's
.When a man tries out for a football team, he
determines at first to win a place on the Varsity.
Hie makes that the sky limit of his ambition, bends
all efforts to it until, by dint of hard, consistent
work,. he succeeds in winning his letter. But his
ambition cannot cease here. He finds that the men
about him are not resting back on their laurels.
Each is fighting to keep the admiration of his fel-
lows on the team and in the stands; fighting to win
the approval of the critics who understand skill and
determination ; fighting with a hope that some day
he may win the honor of a place on the All-Con-
ftrece, All-Western, and - final goal of all ath-
letes - the All-American.
Even if he is not accorded this recognition of a
place.on the famous mythical eleven, the man
mho has refused to admit defeat, fought steadily
until the last whistle of his final season, has gained
a self-confidence that cannot but be one of his
It is that way with life. The day-dreamer is the
man, who can see only the distant goal, and has
riither the foresight to plot out, nor the will to
carry through, the steps that intervene. It is the
plugger who, keeping .his ideal in mind, sets his
immediate aim and reaches it, and then sees the
next step and sets out with might and main to
achieve that, who is the most likely All-American
prospect in the game of life.
FALL IN LINE
The fact that some boarding house and restau-
rant proprietors frankly admit they can make a fair
pr-ofit after materially reducing board tariffs shows
conelusively that after all camouflage is cleared
away from the food problem, those eating-house
men who have promised no cuts in rates have no
legitimate excuse for maintaining their prices at ar-
The statements which indicate that at least some
of those in the business of preparing food intend to
let justice prevail over geed, are of especial sig-
nificance as in more than one case the managers
who are taking a fair view of the matter have on
hand large stocks of canned goods purchased i the
summer. In spite of this carry-over from the period
before declines were registered, these managers
have conceded that they will make money t re-
Of course, as a matter of fact, the perishable
food that is bought at daily quotations is far more
important in determining the cost of a meal than
are the canned products stored away during the
summer, but testimony that a fair profit can be
made at lower rates punctures once for all the

"Alas," she shrieked, her tears fell fast.
I could not help but pity her-
"I am a dunce, what can I do ?
I've heard of a man Whittier !"
What, we again rise to inquire, has become of the
old fashioned humorist who;used to limp onto the
stage looking like the Wreck of the Hesperus and
then have his partner ask him;
"Have an accident?"
After which amid tumultous applause, he used to
"No, thanks! I've just had one."
What can I take-to cure my kleptomania?
Don't take anything; then you'll soon be cured.
Ain't It the Truth?
When he's finished with the lecture,
And he's tired as can be,
It's "Professor, one more question,
d Will you please to answer.me?"
He-sets his specs with trembling hand,
But he answers the lady, "Shoot."
And she passes back the query,
"Oh, why can't a duck play the flute?"
The following was sent in from Newberry with
a notation that it "is too true to be good and too
painful to be funny, but perhaps you (meaning us)
in your perverted mind, may find it interesting."
