INTENDED TO AID IN ELECTION
OF SECOND SEMESTER
COURSES
With an introductory statement en-
titled, "Can You Think?" by President
Marion L. Burton, in which he stresses
the importance of every loyal citizen
utilizing his opportunities to strength-
en his grip on knowledge and to stim-
ulate his mind, the abridged announce-
ment for all departments of the Uni-
versity for the Summer session of 1921
is now ready for distribution.
The announcement is intended to
serve as a guide in the election of
courses for the second semester by
those students who are making defi-
nite plans to attend school through-
out the summer. Careful attention in
the preparation of this year's program
was given to the needs of regular Uni-
versity students and also to the re-
quirements of teachers who are in
school for the short term only. Empha-
sis was placed on securing a variety
of work in education, modern lan-
guages, political economy, and other
subjects.
According to Dean E. H. Kraus, of
the Summer session, instruction on a
par if not superior to that of the reg-
ular year, will be offered. With smaller
classes, less crowded laboratory con-
ditions, a'nd fewer student activities to
offer distraction, excellent opportunity
is given for intensive study during the
summer, he says. In addition, there
is the important element of time sav-
ing. By taking summer work, the
student is enabled to save one year of
residence, and more and more stu-
dents are recognizing the teconomic
value of this saving.

Use of the rifle range in the armory
has been given to the Michigan unit of
the R. 0. T. C.. Preliminary shooting
was begun last week in preparation
for a mass competition which is to be
held soon. This event will also serve
as an elimination contest.
The five-man team that will repre- f
sent Michigan's R.O. T. C. unit will be
chosen from those having the highest
scores. Early in March this team will
engage in three contests with teams
of R. 0. T. C. units in the six corps
area. The University R. 0. T. C. rifle
team will contest the 0. S. U. team
March 22.
PROF. BLANCHARD TO SPEAK
FOR IMPROVEMENT OF ROADS
Prof. Arthur H. Blanchard, of the
highway engineering and highway
transport department, delivers two
lectures this week on the subject of
road improvements. On Wednesday
evening he will speak in Detroit be-
fore the Michigan engineers' assembly
of the American association of engi-
neers on the necessity of building
highways for the needs of transporta-
tion. Thursday evening he is to ad-
dress the Illinois society of engineers,
in Chicago, regarding the relation of
highway transport surveys to eco-
nomic highway design.
Professor Blanchard was recently
appointed by Mayor Wurster of Ann
Arbor, as a delegate to the annual
good roads congress and national
good roads show, to be held in Chicago
next month.

"Whimsies" is the campus' newest
publication.
Bound by a clip, its dozen mimeo-
graphed pages would hardly cause
hands to stray toward pocketbooks
were "Whimsies" displayed in store
windows. But it is not displayed;
its readers are few and carefully se-
lected; its subscription price is exact-
ly nothing; and its editor, for the pres-
ent at least, will have to be known
simply as "Box 147, Ann Arbor."
"Box 147" has a real idea. Con-
vinced that the University of Michi-
gan, however well supplied in other
lines by Chimes, Gargoyle, and The
Daily, has no real literary magazine
where the,"fundamental and the gen-
eral" may find the light as opposed to
the "provincialism" of our present
publications, he has taken b novel way
of meeting the lack. His first issue
contains an explanation of the purpose
of "Whimsies" and provides a few
samples of the sort of thing he intends
to publish-a poem or two, an Irish
allegorical fairy story, an interesting
Interaddendum to a Bible passage, and
two essays.
However much wo may suspect that
Chimes really does intend to provide
an outlet for such work-witness "R.
V." and "From a Grind's Window"-
the sincerity and purpose of the new
Journal's editor can only bring ad-
miration. He hopes, by appealing first
to the selected coterie of more serious
thinkers and appreciators of literature
on his free subscription list, and to
grow and encourage within the Uni-
versity a circle of those who "would
strive in written language to talk of
life sincerely and thoughtfully to
others." He hopes to approximate, for
the University, the function of, the
Atlantic Monthly or Dial. Anyone
wishing to write for "Whimsies" has
only to drop his contribution in the
mail, addressed to "Box 147, Ann
Arbor, Mich."
The literature of the first number
might be criticised as containing too
much comment on emotions; but itf
evidently strives toward the ideals of
real writing and shows originality. If
*he editor, as certain readers re-
marked, is "a single tracker," at least
it's an all too untravelled track. "Box
147" is a tryer, and in "Whimsies" is
living up to the cover quotation:
"A man's reach should exceed his
grasp
Or what's a heaven for?"
Dr. Barrett Founds Detroit Clinic
Dr. A. M. Barrett, professor of
psychiatry, has been in Detroit for the
past two days establishing the new
municipal court clinic there. The
rumor that Dr. Barrett was to have
charge of the new clinic is baseless
according to Dr. A. L. Jacoby, Dr.
Barrett's assistant.

Mrs. Fox was bragging one day about the large
number of her cubs.
"How many cubs do you bring into the world at
one time?" she asked the LIONESS.
"Only ONE," replied the Lioness-" but it's a
LION."
MURADS COST 20 CENTS for a BOX,
of 10-BUT THEY'RE MURADS!
MURADS would be lower priced if we left out
all or part of the 100% Turkish tobaccos of the purest
and best varieties grown-or if we substituted inferior
grades of Turkish tobacco.
But they wouldn't be MURADS-they'd only be
Foxes!
"Judge for yourself-!"
