Wake" for all that is leftto him - apology.
Wisconsin is our friend -- a friend with whom
we are to come next year into still closer relations
through the resumption of gridiron contests be-
tween the two universities. That such a piece of
unthinking mudslinging should mar the growing
amity is inconceivable.
THE NEED FOR CONVOCATIONS
One of the most regrettable circumstances attend-
ing the abolition of the 1921 J-Hop, and the one
which rightly received the most censure, was that
the action was taken entirely without consultation
with the student body as a whole. The Committe
on Student Affairs failed completely to take th
campus at large into its confidence.
Assuredly most of the harmful publicity, at
least, could have been avoided if, before the con
mittee had taken action, the situation had been pre
sented at a meeting or convocation of the whole
student body, with notice that unless all rules were
lived up to the Hop would be abolished.
Emergencies such as this bring out conclusively
the need at Michigan of an institution found in
different forms in many of the colleges of both the
East and the West, but noticeably absent here. Wt
should have some arrangement for regular convo-
cations of the whole -University, attended by all
students on the call of the President.
At institutions where personal contact between
students and administration has been brought about
through such meetings, the plan has been highly ad-
vantageous to all concerned. At Williams, for in-
stance, when steps were being taken to abolish an
event prized in much the same way as the Hop is
here, the matter was adjusted with the minimum
friction by a presentation of affairs to the whole
Other schools have enjoyed the same benefits and
it has been found that in addition the convocations
are valuable in fostering school spirit, keeping stu-
dents in large institutions from drifting apart, and
giving an opportunity to hear prominent speakers.
Various plans for such university meetings have
been followed. In some places they exist in the
form of chapel, held daily. In others a certain
hour on a certain week day is held open by stu-
dents so that convocations may be called any week
if neessary. It is1probable that the latter system
would be best for Michigan. At any rate action
should be taken now - before schedules for next
semester are made out - to give Michigan the ad-
vantages of such convocations.
The Michigan Daily preserves a standing policy
favoring the expression of student and faculty
opinion as set forth in communications. Such let-
ters are constantly being received and, whenever
possible and when the subject under discussion is
one of sufficiently general interest, The Daily is in
the habit of running them in its columns.
The difficulty with most letters received, how-
ever, is that they are too long. Three hundred
words is the set limit and our small space combined
with the regular flood of copy makes it absolutely
essential that writers adhere to this maximum if
they wish their opinions published.

in room C of the law building Tuesday)-"Oh, I'm
not on probation ! I'm iust taking these tests to get

A REPLY TO LIBEL
Time was when the adage could be stretched to
read "All's fair in love, war and intercollegiate
athletics" - when ringers, proselyting, slugging,
greased footballs, brass knuckles were as common
accompaniments of college sport as clean, hard
playing and inter-university friendliness 'are today.
The old has passed from us, and there has been n
stauncher backer of aboveboard athletics in the new
era of sportsmanship than the University of Michi-
gan. That anyone in the least acquainted with the
brand of play Maize and Blue coaches have drilled
into their men should cast suspicions upon the good
name of a Michigan basketball team and its mentor
seemed unbelievable until the Chicago Tribune, in
its "Wake of the News", appeared Wednesday with
a letter from W. G. Erdman, president of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin club of Detroit, charging that
"Coach Mather in his anxiety to keep the lead per-
mitted his men to have their shoulders greased so
as to make. them hard to 'hold' when guarded by
the Wisconsin team."
The man who made this charge and placed it be-
fore the million or so readers of the Tribune did so
very evidently without the least inquiry, with no
desire except to take his own snap judgment as a
means of hurting the University of Michigan in the
eyes of all true sportsmen in America. If he had
taken the trouble to ask the members of the Wis-
consin team, the Wisconsin coach, or the umpires
at the game he could have found how baseless his
clprge was; for the fact was brought out at the
time, and accepted absolutely, that the sole reason
ofr Michigan's oily shoulders was the fact that the
players were in haste to rush to the floor at sound
of the bell, and the rubber had no time to towel off
the liniment which is used between halves, to limber

and again in the editorial columns. The Michigan
athletic -department and coach, to make sure tha
no misunderstanding had been carried away, wrote
to Wisconsin and received replies from Director
Jones and Coach Meanwell that the Badgers had
understood perfectly the reason for the appearance
of the Michigan team and had nothing but the
highest regard for the sportsmanship of Coach
Mather and his men. Michigan, especially jealous
of the good regard in which her teams have always
been held, spared no means to make sure that no
false stories should be spread abroad. It was
thought that the complete understanding had cov-
ered the matter, and that amicable relations which
Michigan hopes never to see broken had been un-
disturbed by such a mere accident. And now, after
everyone connected with the matter has forgotten
it, a person who has made absolutely no investiga-
tion Comes forward to make a mountain of. the
molehill and accuse Michigan, without proof, of
unclean basketball. Happily, the Tribune has given
Michigan a fair chance to reply; and with the pub-
lication of the letters of the two athletic depart-

Undoubtedly some of the greatest poetry which
has ever been written has had its inception in grief
struggling for expression. In proof of our con-
tention we print the following from the pen of
Perry Goric, one of the most gifted of the many
students of the Lovell School of Expression:
Poor Jennie Schnell
Her's gone away;
Her would if her could
But her couldn't stay.
Sp ecial at
'Twas her aching heart
And her baddish cough,
'Twas her two weak lungs
That took her off.
Oh! Be she gone
Or can she went?
Oh, has her left I all alone?
Her can never come to we
We can never go to she,
It cannot was.

Do you think that I cheapen myself by attending

in company with a gentleman friend of mine?
Not at all; on the-contrary, you are making your-
self very dear to him.
Yes, Clarice, you are probably right when you
say that a man who has a scolding wife could
rightfully call her the "Crabapple of his eye."
