ence meets require, nor to develop his powers to
the degree they might reach with time.
Every freshman of athletic promise ought to be
on the job as a tryout. What is more, the rest of
us ought to see to it that all entering men of any
kind of athletic ability get busy at once. We should
not let them run the risk of becoming physically
stale. Such a procedure can do the men them-
selves nothing but good; and it may mean greater
things in the future for Michigan athletics.
T HE PLAYERS' CLUB. DEBUT
Judging by the liberal praise given the four one-
act plays through which the Players' club made its
debut, Michigan's newest dramatic organization has
every advantage of a good start. Aside from the
skill ii] acting and producing displayed, its inter--
pretations of work by leading playwrights give
strong assurance that the club will be fully able to
cope with the more difficult problems incident to
carrying out its aims.
A successful Players' club will mean much to
Michigan. Briefly the organization's plans are aimed
to foster interest in the University in the higher
forms of drama, with'plays produced by students
from start to finish as its ultimate objective. If
its ideal is realized, Michigan will have drama en-
tirely its own, made up of plays written, acted, and
presented in every way by University students.
The assistance the plan offers those wishing to
accompany academic instruction in the theater with
"practical work" is easily appreciated. Students
who are interested in writing plays, acting, and so
forth, find in it the invaluable advantages of the
laboratory method of study which is the keystone
of instruction in Michigan's professional schools
and which is of no little importance in the theatrical
The logical results of the Players' club plan are
a better grade of drama at Michigan and the de-
velopment of more players and playwrights among
the student body. At present the organization is
demanding the undivided attention of its members.
Great things can be expected of the club if it ad-
heres to its program and preserves the spirit of
serious work that has so far characterized its un-
One Ann Arbor fire department, at the great con-
flagration Thursday night, proved that while the
city water-pressure isn't strong enough to break a
window it at least can raise one.
Did everybody notice in Friday's Daily how the
homoeop hospital looks under quarantine?
Don't you think that "unique" is a very good word
to use in describing Ann Arbor. C. D. E -
Yes, very appropriate. The word unique, as we
understand it, is derived from two Latin words,
uno meaning one, and equus meaning horse.
In substantiation of our oft repeated declaration
that true poetry must follow rhetoricalprinciples
as to proper and logical sequence, we submit the
following. Part of this we made up out of our
own head and even then had enough material left
over to make a kitchen table.
'Twas a bright May night in November,
So dark one scarce could see
The street car 'tying at its moorings
On that calm and storm-tossed sea.
"'Tis love that makes the world go 'round,"
How oft these words are spoke,
But the same phenomena are found
By mixing ether with coke.

THE BUSY SIGNAL
The busy man is seldom pressed for time. He
can always manage to squeeze in a little work in ad-
dition to the regular routine. This holds good at
Michigan as well as it does anywhere else. The
man who studies conscientiously and still finds time
to enter into the constructive side of what is com-
monly termed "College Li.fe" is seldom too busy to
step in and boost for some -projected program of
On the other hand, the man who never does
much in the line of study and less in student activi-
ties or committee work is constantly howling about
how busy he is. He barely succeeds in snatching
time for meals. He is always in a hurry to get to
Huston's or the Union billiard room. He tears
frantically about from this appointment to that date
and from the "Maj" to the Arcade. He "fusses"
or plays cards until early morning so that his sleep-
ing hours are badly cut down. When he does man-
age to steal a few leisure minutes, he spends them
royally in lounging in some soft chair, preferably
within easy reach of the match-box anid the deck of
If he be asked to serve on some committee by a
harassed chairman, his invariable answer is. "I'm
too busy." Likewise this breed is generally too
busy to find time for study. A "C" grade is to
them of equal merit to an "A" grade in the mind of
the honestly studious.
There are all too few of us in the first class and
far too many in the second. It's up to us to take
down the "Too Busy" sign and get to work. It
pays in the end.
COME OUT THE FIRST YEAR
When the high shool graduate comes to the Uni-
versity 'for a college education he does not expect
to complete the work and fit himself for coapeti-
tion with the world in less than the prescribed four
years. On the contrary, he matriculates fully ex-
pecting to spend the required time here, if he is at
all seriously intentioned, and he realizes that a col-
lege training cannot be obtained in a few months
or even in one or two years.
We are, however, inclined to confine this con-
ception of training to the intellectual alone and to
forget that it applies to physical development just
as well as to mental. It is no more possible for the
man of even good athletic ability to come to col-
lege, let athletics go for the first year or possibly
the first two years, and then expect to make of
himself a first rate college athlete than it is possi-
ble for the high school graduate to get all that he
might get out of college in one or two years. Both
require time, if the individual is to make the most
of his opportunities and to develop himself to the
greatest possible degree.
The fact that so many men let their track work
slip for their first year or two before placing them-
selves under training is an important complaint
which Coach Farrell has to make of his material.
When a man waits until his junior or senior year
before reporting as a tryout, even though that man
may have a good deal of ability, it is seldom pos-
sible to make him into the class of athlete Confer-

Tip to the Boardinghouse Keepers
The next time any of the boarders are quite satis-
fied with the menu, remark casually.:
"Can any of you tell me the difference between
a chicken dinner and a mess of prunes?"
When all give up and admit they can't tell you
the difference, remark in the same casual tone:
W.ell, if none of you know the difference, Ix
guess I might just as well serve the prunes as
