ing all the demands of this great, growing com-
monwealth will stand completed.
President Burton has taken the student body
into his confidenec to good purpose. Every man
and woman in the University is with him in this,
the greatest of all campaigns to better Michigan.
The alumni body, which forms a great percentage
of the paying attendance at Ferry field games, con-
stitutes the keystone to the new stadium problem.
If the need for the completion of the "U" is
brought fully before them - which should not be
difficult because of the sad experiences of many in
failing to secure tickets - the movement will be
well on its way. This Christmas vacation is our
immediate opportunity of talking up the new sta-
dium and securing the advice of alumni as to the
best way of going about the campaign for it.
No definite policy of raising funds can yet be
adopted, but the suggestion of the athletic board
to sell five-year books of tickets providing for ad-
mission to reserved seats at two big games every
year seems to be the most feasible of all the ideas
thus far advanced. The cost of the stadium being
$400,000, the board would raise $200,ooo of that
sum by a loan, leaving the other half of the re-
quired amount to beN raised by some such plan as
the one above mentioned..
The ticket plan would provide with reserved
seats for five years, and would thus avoid the con-
fusion and disappointment which has hitherto at-
tended every big game where seats were at a pre-
mium, and many alumni had to be turned away on
account of inadequate facilities. Surely, if a cal
should be issued to our great number of loyal
alumni to donate directly to a fund for a new sta-
dium, enough money could be raised in this fash-
ion to cover the reqiured outlay. But it should not
be necessary to resort to this policy, for the adop-
tion of the ticket plan would permit the alumni to
aid in the building of the larger stands, and still
give them a reasonable return for their expendi-
A new stadium and seats for 1ll, or the old stands
and thousands turned away at every game - the
matter is in the hands of the student body.
Three hundred years ago Tuesday, the day on
which we will all be speeding home via the most
modern system of commercial transportation, the
ancestors of the Four Hundred were landing from
a dinky little wooden ship on the then-uninhabited
shores of New England.

Clothes, Furnishings and Hats

Michigan was the first university in America to
admit women, that policy having been adopted in
1870 under the acting presidency of Dr. Henry
Simmons Frieze.
At last the time has come. Trunks stuffed,
books shelved, presents packed, ground snow-
blanketed, minds wandering, general good humor;
everything points to vacation. Study is a matter
of the past, and leisure reigns supreme. So let the
winds and the firelogs roar. What are we going to
do? Eat, sleep, and let joy be unrestrained for
two glorious weeks. And then? We are going
to come back strong, laden with money for the
pool and prospects of good men for Michigan in
the fall. We are going to bring these back as a
little present for Michigan, a proof and pledge of
our unfailing loyalty.A
Six days from now the Yule log will blaze mer-
rily away in its fireplace, a thousand times reflected
in the scintillating myriads of dancing Christmas
tree baubles. In England we suppose the prover-
bial boar's head, dressed in a savory fashion, will
lie garnished on the festive board, while monocled
lords will sip their yellow ale in toast to Santa
Clas. Christmas, with all it denotes, is only six
days off.
By means of tedious elaboration and much
painstaking our sentiments on this occasion might
be made clear in a more original way. But no ex-
position could be quite as eloquent in the expres-
sion of what we want to say as the reiteration of
that traditional phrase - The Daily wishes every
man and woman of Michigan a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year.
"Convocation was never like this !"
That was the thought which came spontaneously
to the minds of the more than four thousand stu-
dents who crowded into Hill auditorium Friday
afternoon largely out of a sense 6f duty, half ex-
pecting the same kind of an academic atmosphere
and the same scholarly, balanced rhetoric of simi-
lar occasions in the past - and then found, within
the first minute of President Burton's address, that
'all-at once the old tradition was to take a new sig-
nificance, that something vital to them, to every
loyal Michigan man and woman, to every good
citizen who knows the value and need of educa-
tion, was being told them in the straightforward
fashion with which the President commands in-
No amount of statistics could have depicted so
convincingly the crowding needs of the Univer-
sity, accumulated through two decades in which the
state's college education has failed of proper recog-
nition and reasonable support. Graphically, one
by one, the overwhelming mass of facts took shape
and form until, with the President, we realized the
inadequacy of the present, saw with him the ab-
solute necessity of the pared-down and essential
nineteen millions budget, and looked eye to eye
with him into the future when a Michigan meet-

My last year's overcoat is worn out. What can

Nothing to do, I guess, except to take it down
to the Union cloakroom and get a good one for it.
The Formula
To win affection from, a man
Requires profound sagacity;
To win the love of woman
Takes considerable audacity.
Angelena has just written us a scathing Phillipic
because of our attempt to scrape an acquaintance
with this fair contributor.
Well, to show you, Ang, that we, too, can be
magnanimous we only wish that you have just
as happy and joyful a Christmas 'as we know we
are going to - we live too far away to go home
and have to remain in Ann Arbor for the occasion.
As was probably noted by our readers in glanc-
ing over our picture which was reprinted a while
back, we are a little inclined to baldness. This fact
affords our girl much amusement and whenever the
conversation lags she always lights on this Achilles
heel of our makeup. The other night she starts in
by asking:
"Jack, what is it that's causing your baldness?"
When we did not even deign a reply she comes
back again with:
"Don't you suppose it is theresult of your exer-
cising your brain too much ?"
By this time we had reached the end of our
patience and so acting as though a great light had
suddenly dawned on us we replied:
"You're probably right. That undoubtedly ex-
plains then why so few girls on the campus are
growing whiskers."
And then we went into the clinch.
