ening shadow over the expected glorious future of
Many men of athletic ability seem to have lost
sight of the real purpose of attending a university-
the securing of an education. While their motives
are of the best, and they give their utmost for their
school, it should never become necessary for them
to neglect their studies if the game demands it. On
the contrary, if the issue finally narrows down to
the point where the athlete must give all his time
to his studies in order to prevent him from fail-
ing in his courses, it would be much more advisable
fo'r him to resort to this extreme than to continue
his athletic work. Eligibility rules seem hard, but
they are based on a just balancing of first and
second things in college life. The student who, fav-
ored in the matter of nerve and brawn, idles along
and becomes ineligible, is not only disloyal to the
University which might use his ability on diamond,
track, or gridiron; he is doing himself the greatest
ill turn of all.
As Coach Yost exprssed it at a "Big Ten"
smoker recently held in Pittsburgh, "Sports are all
right in their place, but at-a university they are only
a side issue. Studies come first, and then ath-
MORE INTEREST IN HOCKEY
Michigan's informal hockey team opened its
second season of prominence Wednesday night in
a 1iastilv-arrancoed game with the Rayls of Detroit
and in the period of play annexed the first victory
of the year and skated off the rink floor' with a
score of 4 to 2 marked up to its credit.
Hockey as a recognized sport wasinaugurated
here one year ago and during the winter of 1919
and 1920 saw a most successful season, winning
all five games played. One of those defeated by
the Wolverine squad was the strong Waterston ag-
gregation of Detroit and this afternoon that same
industrial team returns to Apn Arbor to try for a
retaliation. It should be a fast, interesting contest,
with hard playing to be done if the Maize and Blue
squad is to win.
Student support should'be a big factor for vic-
tory, At the game Wednesday night there were
only some zo spectators present to view the
match. One hundred enthusiasts can make quite
a bit of noise, but the team deserves better backing
in numbers than that. Hockey is a decidedly inter-
esting game, a form of sport combining speed, skill,
and snap, and no one can consider his time wasted
in viewing a contest such as that which the Wolver-
ine skate and puck artists staged Wednesday night.
The fact that the hockey team is for the present
an informal aggregation is no reason for consider-
ing that it does not represent us as does a Varsity
squad. It is made up of Michigan men and is play-
ing for the honor of the University, and we owe it
our allegiance. With the right kind of boosting,
this informal squad will soon be headed to recog-
nition as a Varsity or minor sport.
All out to the Coliseum this afternoon!

seriously impaired his singing, but his wife says that
he will sing again in a few days. The woman must

THE I4EALTH MONOPOLY
What has become of the high code of ethics
which the layman is led to believe is the charac-
teristic of the medical profession?. Doctors, we
had supposed, were men of high ideals whose great-
est wish was to serve humanity in its hours of dis-
ease-ravaged torture. Certainly the plan of Pres-
ident Marion L. Burton which contemplates an en-
largement of the hospital facilities of the Univer-
sity so that its benefits may be conferred upon a
larger number of the people of the state, would
seem to fall in with the expressed purposes of the
medical profession and presumably with the ends
of medical men.
Such is not the case, if we may judge by the re-
ception accorded the plan by the physicians of the
state who gathered at the Union last week. Of the
four doctors who commented on the extension,
three were dead against it and one 'approved with
reservations." The opposition laid great stress on
the fact that the state would be entering into an un-
justifiable competition with the medical profession.
How long has the health of the state been a com-
modity to be traded in by some specially designated
class for their personal economic advantage? Are
the ethics of the profession fallen to so low a level
that the doctors prefer to have others suffer through
insufficient equipment, merely because an increase
in that 'equipment might Fconceivably result in eco-
nomic disadvantage to individt al practitioners here
and there throughout the state?
The supposition that President Burton is work-
ing toward the sort of state medicine which,
through stifling competition, has hurt the profes-
sion in England, appears utterly without founda-
tion. Anyone knowing the facts about results of
such a system would flee from it; and the Univer-
sity has no plan to run dead ahead into such a mis-.
take. To derive a .conclusion of this sort from the
desire to extend the splendid hospital work of the
University within reach of others seems rather a
pretext than a genuine reason.
Is it not high time that the vague protestations
of high idealism which emanate semi-occasionally
from the medical profession be examined to de-
termine whether they are camouflage or merely the
product of idle speculation on what things would
be like if-they were what they ought to be. If the
standards really are as high as physicians and sur-
geons would have us believe, can the stand taken
by the speakers at the convention be reconciled to

You're right, Clarice, when you say that influence
is what you think you have until you try to use it.
This one, also, is remarkably well preserved in
spite of its years.

morning, when you passed me on the campus.
Second ditto-Is that so? Well, who were you?

Is betting, as so many doctors claim, really inju-
rious to the health? R. B. L.
Yes. We have heard many fellows who have
been betting on our basketball team complain that
something was wrong with their system.
Why Is It That
At the sight of a girl with a chamois y
No one laughs the louder
Than the bird who instead of a shave
Covers his beard with powder.

FIRST THINGS FIRST
That college athletics have played an important
role in the establishment of a spirit of friendly riv-
alry among the- educational institutions of this
country is a fact which none can deny. That the
man who makes a name for himself and the school
he represents on the gridiron, baseball field, bas-
ketball court or cinder track, fully deserves the
honors which he merits by dint of consistent prac-
tice and diligent observance of strict training
rules, is also an admitted fact. Of late years,
however, the matter has taken on a more serious
aspect, and in large measure seems to cast a threat-
