policy would prove to be of considerable benefit.
Determining who among those taking these tests
are really industrious students lacking ability, and
who, on the other hand, are behind merely because
of a lack of proper interest or because of too great
a distribution of their energies over fields foreign
to their University studies, will probably be the
principal good which these examinations will ac-
TURNING OLD LEAVES
The old U. of M. Daily, files of which are still
kept at The Daily office, is interesting in the ex-
treme As a means of gauging the changes which
have occurred at Michigan in the last thirty years.
The new "Thirty Years Ago" column, which ap-
peared for the first time before the holidays, wil
carry the htmorous comparisons of life "then and
no'w" beginning with Friday's issue.
It is strange reading for us when we learn that
in the school year 1890-91, there had been four
violent deaths in the student body, one of which
was due to a town and gown battle. The students
of that day were solemnly advised by The Daily
that the only time they had any right to be on the
streets was while they were hurrying to and from
classes. Immediately thereafter it sarcastically or-
dered the students to lock their doors, in order to
" bar out the town ruffiians.
So it goes throughout the whole file. The student
cheering of i89o was so poor that The Daily car-
ried an editorial on the almost criminal actions of
a few students who insisted on making use of the
"U. of M." yell at football games or class rushes.
We are further informed that on one day only
seven football men turned out to practice due to a
rain. "A ladies' society as broad as the University
itself is to be organized on Saturday evening for
the co-eds of our institution" is another tickler.
The old files give something of an idea of the
life and attitude of the students of those days, and
show the philosophical manner in which they at-
tempted to ridicule and belittle their troubles. To
be sure the language they use sounds quaint and
labored to us, and many of the points they sress
would pass almost unnoted today. '
Perhaps thifty years from no.w our diction and
our emphasis will seem equally ridiculous to Michi-
gan students. And perhaps, even as we can take a'
lesson or two from the past even while we laugh at
it, the future campusites will see good traits in -us
of which we are today unconscious.
Help! Help! Help the Telescope!
If all the contribs I have written,
Were heaped into a mighty pile
And with a match the stack were litten
You'd see the blaze about a mile.
But all the gold that I have gitten
For all the contribs I have wrote
Would never hurt the feeblest kitten
If I poured it molten down his throat.
limes do change. In the "good old days" the
boys used to sing with much pathos, "I'll Ne'er
Forget My College Days." Nowadays the girls
sing with even more feeling, "I'll Ne'er Forget My

A TIME TO VACATE
'"A vacation is a time to vacate," President Mar-
ion L. Burton told us in his message in The Daily
just before the holidays. He urged us to "empty
our heads (if need be) and take a real vacation."
The serious student was advised to take time off
from his studies and enjoy two weeks of genuine
relaxation. "Great !" said we to ourselves.
And having read, we went to our last classes,
where no small number of us were assigned re-
ports or research of various kinds which, to be done
right, would take away from us many needed hours
of rest during the "time out" period. Ours was
not to question, but obey. With some natural ran-
cour we went to our homes, where a goodly share of
us attacked our stints half-heartedly, desiring with
all our might to do something else which prom-
ised more relaxation and let us forget books.
A few of the super-conscientious did it up right.
All honor to them; but, after all, weren't those the
wisest who let schoolwork cut into their holidays
the least possible part of the time? Or if not the
wisest, at least the most normal? Is there any rea-
son why a student should feel any extraordinary
enthksiasm in carrying out tasks which cheat him
of the time granted him to rest?
Doubtless, until the day when there are positive
rules to the contrary, a few instructors will con-
tinue to think and practice the idea that study is an
undiluted pleasure, to be attacked with zest, in va-
vation as well as in the school semester. Human
nature does not bear them out; for no matter how
much the scholar, professional man, or business
man may like his work, he finds that every so often
he must take a rest - an absolute rest, with a
change in the material of his thinking as well as in
the volume of it. Having done so, he comes back
with more energy and efficiency for his next round
at study, practice, or business.
Positive action by the administration, prohibit-
ing the assignment of any vacation work whatever,
and leaving the matter of review up to the individ-
ual student, seems the best solution. President Bur-
ton will then be able to see his definition "a time
to vacate" put in practice.
MENTAL TESTS FOR PROBATIONERS
Following the trend of present-day psychology,
the University has now adopted the plan of giving
mental tests to all students who are on probation,
for the purpose of determining why they have been
unable to keep up in their studies and to discover
whether such persons are mentally capable of main-
taining the standard of university work. Although
psychlogical tests have become more or less of a
fad in recent times, it would seem that this new

I have an elderly gentleman paying me attention
who is extremely bald. I like him very much but
feel rather embarrassed when out with him any
place where he has to remove his hat. What can
I do? Worried.
Why not take him down to a Main street music
store. I see where one of them advertises, "Old
bows rehaired while you wait."
The other night when we were out with our girl
we were durn fool enough to ask her for a kiss.
Drawing herself up proudly she said:
"I want you to know that my Dad said he would
kill any man he ever caught kissing me."
At her words, we shuddered involuntarily but
finally managed to gasp:
"Gosh, I don't see how your Dad can ever sleep
Looking puzzled she asks, "Well, why shouldn't
he sleep nights?" a
After removing the chair which stood between
us and the door we replies:
"Oh, just from thinking about all those.men he's
had to murder on your account."
She always darned her hose with silk,
The holes were quite extensive,
The price of silk was very high
Which made them darned expensive.
