taste as early as possible all the sensations, run the
gamut of all the pleasures of life is not new.
Doubtless the much-tongued 'moral breakdown due
to the war' has had its part, but Fitzgerald is right
when he intimates the change has been cooking for
years. Convention and grownups have always re-
pressed the Jazz Idea in the past, but it has always
been just underneath the surface.
Thirteen-year-olds in evening gowns, hair tip or
more often bobbed; chaperones carefully stowed
away behind ferns; the best shimmier, camel
walker, or toddler at a premium and "cut in on"
every ten steps ; one-night limousine back seat ro-
mances; kissing become almost -as much of a rub-
ber-stamp as the old farewell handshake ; prohibi-
tion enforcement the best joke of the hour, and
youngsters at every turn"piped" or pretending to
be; - all these symptoms have been in the lime-
light of late, and are probably still prominent in
the memory of everyone who saw something of the
late vacation's social whirl in the larger cities.
In a city not far from Ann Arbor the papers and
the preachers suddenly "came to" with a bump
after two weeks of popeyed observation of the an-
tics of the young. "Why!" exclaimed one popular
divine, "The bunch home from college couldn't keep
up with the high school crowd."
Was it a case of "couldn't" or "wouldn't"?
Chances favor the latter. A college education is
supposed to give a person that sense of discrimina-
tion which enables him to distinguish in his pleas-
ures, and to go in for a thing because he wants
to, not merely because "it is done." The follow-
the-crowd cult of the times is just the sort of in-
.anity of which a university training is supposed to
rid a man or woman. This is no homily against
pleasures; by all means let's have them, but let us
choose them ourselves. Is the time far distant
when the possession of this quality of individual
discretion will stand out as a type trait of the col-
lege man or woman?
Utah has a University court to try 4ll sorts of
cases involving the student body. Recently the
court probed the stuffing of ballot boxes in a stu-
dent electtion, with authority to° punish offenders.
Why would not such a body, constituted by au-
thority of the student and empowered by them, be
a good plan at Michigan?

KNOW YOUR UNIVERSITY
What is considered by authoritative critics, both
in this country and abroad, to be one of the most
significant of modern collections of musical instru-
ments was donated to the University by the late
Frederick Stearns, and occupies a room in Hill
auditorium under the name of the Stearns Col-
lection. It contains about :,5oo examples of every
type of musical instrument.

"PAN-AMERICAN DELEGATES ON
THE U. OF IL"
At Louisville, Ky., the Pan-Amer-
ican delegates were interviewed by
the Courier-Journal, and their delib-
erate opinion in regard to the Univer-
sity sent a thrill of pleasure to many
loyal hearts. Being asked what in
this country had most impressed them,
they replied decisively, "The great
boys' college at Ann Arbor.' They
referred to the gathering in University
hall and described the enthusiasm.
"But," said they, "when their hon-
ored president raised his hand, there
was instant quiet." The excellent dis-
cipline and control of the great body
of students was to them a matter of
wonder and admiration .

WHY NOT UNANIMOUS?
"After New Year's!" was the.answer given be-
fore the holidays to queries as to when the lower
board prices that conditions justified would become
effective. Although this delay was of disadvantage
to students, there are reasons why boarding house
proprietors should have desired to review business
conditions at the critical first-of-the-year period,
before revising prices downward. Had enormously
increased costs prevailed when school was resumed
Wednesday, it is conceivable that no reductions
would have been warranted.
However, this did not prove to be the case. After
playing safe by waiting until after the holidays, eat-
ing house men found conditions even more to their
advantage than before Christmas. Costs were and
are now slightly lower than when vacation began.
In view of these circumstances, and showing a
fairness that will in the end turn out to be business
wisdom, a number of the dealers in cooked food
made "AfteriNew Year's" really mean something
by cutting prices to give patrons a share in the ben-
efits of lower raw food costs. Cafeterias have been
foremost in this policy and several boarding houses
have made fifty cent cuts.
It is regrgetable, however, that this action has
not been unanimous. Unfortunately in some cases
tariffs are still maintained at their highest levels in
complete indifference to the interest of student
patrons, and no hope of reductions is given ex-
cept at the beginning of next semester or some
other date in the distant future.
Apparently the only remedy to prevent these pro-
longed excessive prices in eating houses where
rates are unchanged, is for students to buy more
discriminately by shifting patronage to establish-
ments which are trying to give a square deal and
are not holding back lower prices. Increased busi-
ness and good will are the fair rewards due propri-
etors who have revised tariffs. Food can be sup-
plied at lower prices and there is no reason why re-
visions should not be made in all eating houses.
DISCRIMINATION IN PLEASURES
The Jazz Idea has passed out of music to make
way for melody, but it has only changed its locale;
it lives now not in notes, but in the daily lives and
thoughts of the nation's youth.
Nobody need .read "This Side of Paradise" or
listen to a sermon in order to discover that a great
change has recently come over the attitude of Amer-
ican young people toward morals and conventions.
The transformation is prima facie, on the surface,
brazenly and joyously evident. There is nothing
complex about it; the universal desire of youth to

Don't you honestly believe, right down in your
heart, that the women of the University are better
looking than the town girls? Virginia Dair.

What has become of the old fashioned humor-
ists who used to do a Samson act by bringing the
house down with this one:
First ham-I was up town last night when they
had a fire at my house.
Second ditto-And what did you do?
First-I ran all the way home.
Second (breathlessly)-And did you save any-

First stude-I just found out the other day that
Bob was a somnambulist.
Second ditto-Zatso ? How did you find it out?
First-I saw him get up in the middle of an Ec.
lecture and walk out.
Yes, Clarice, you're probably right when you say
that truth is stranger than fiction but Philosophy z
is stranger than either.
We're always preaching to our girl that she
should take plenty of physical exercise. So the
other day with the idea of stimulating her interest
along these lines we took her over and showed her
the paraphernalia in Waterman gym.
We finally came upon a medicine ball and our
girl shows her ignorance by asking:
"What's that, Jack?"
Biting down any sarcastic answer we replied
with Job-like patience, "Why that's a medicine
Our girl shook her head sadly and said, "Well,
I guess there's no hope for me."
"Why not?" we politely asked.
She looked again at the medicine ball and then
replies: "Oh, I just know I could never learn to
Now we know that the fellow who wrote "Ignor-
ance is Bliss" must have run around with our girl's.
