should be capable of governing ourselves. He is
ready and anxious to lend his "support to student
government and he is the type of man who will per-
mit us to do the job in our own way without con-
stantly interfering because of the way we proceed.
IIe wants results. Within reason, the means are to
be leftto us.
Now is the time for concerted action by the stu-
dents. The various committees appointed by the
president of the Student council at the upperclass
meeting held before examinations should have com-
pleted the major portion of their Work by now.
Their plans should be submitted to the students for
adoption or amendment at the earliest possible mo-
ment. There is still time to lay the foundations for
real self-government this year. Undoubtedly there
will be mistakes made in instituting the system. If
we can get the plan started this year some of the
errors may be eliminated before next fall. We will
be in a position then to give the whole proposition
a fair trial.
When we have an opportunity right at hand to
view some really important examples of modern
American art, it is certainly worth the time to take
advantage of it-and attend the accompanying gal-
lery talks provided. Next Monday marks the close
of the present display in Alumni Memorial hall,
and the aesthetically inclined still have time to pay
the exhibit a visit.
A Wesleyan. freshman at Middletown. Conn.,
when in danger: of expulsion recently, "attacked"
himself with a paddle and so damaged his cranium
that he was in hopes of honorable dismissal. We
offer the account for what it is worth to the vic-
tims of the late lamented "tightening up" process.
Student Is Attacked and Robbed of 't'hirty Dol-
lars by Two Thugs on Campus-U. of Washing-
ton Daily. Plenty of Michigan men have been
held up on the campus, but the question of whether
it was done by thugs is an open one.
The Detroit crime wave reached its climax when
a man recently struck a boy on the head with a
lead pipe and then stole the knob from a porch
door. First thing we know it'll pay to have police
protection for West hall.
An ad in the Daily Northwestern reads : "Come
on and toddle at the Evanston Women's club to-
night - $1.75 a couple." One way to keep 'em at
home.
'h Daily Kansan reports that only one Kansas
university girl has perfect feet. She probably stayed
away from the flattening process of university
dances.

Dear Noah:
The other day while I was eating in one of the
local short order houses I heard a student order a
glass of "half and half." What sort of drink is
that ? H. L. D.
I'm surprised that anybody shouldn't know about
the favorite drink of local boarding houses, half
and half - half water, half milk.

THE SPY BOGIE
Wild rumors seem to be filling the campus air at
present, and open season ought to be declared on
a number of them, chief of which is the Detroit
Times' prize canard about paid spies of the new
cean of students The idea that Dean B ursley would
ruin .all his chances of co-operation with the stu-
lents by such methods is preposterous ; and the pit-
iful part of it is not so much that such a story
should he inventedi as that University men should
believe it and pass it onl as fact.
Some time back the tale foundcredence that
President Marion L. Burton, while a guest at a
fraternity house, asked to be shown through the
house and finally requested a visit to the basement,
where a quantity of whisky was discovered in a cold
furnace. This is a fair sample of the lying or hu-
morous propaganda which seems to spread like
wild-fire. The spy story is a piece of the same
:loth. Ordinary common sense would have nailed
such a tale to the ground long ago, or greeted it
with a laugh of derision.
It is high time that the student body take it upon
.tself to put down the rumors that are bringing the
Jniversity so much unfavorable criticism. If any-
>ody hears further spy rumors, his duty should be
>lain before him: either discard them as the pure
fabrications they have been proved to be in the
>ast, or run them down to their origin. And if the
xistence of any such ears of the administration is
liscovered, The Daily will stand ready to give the
facts fullest publicity.
THE GIFT OF FRANCE
Doubly significant were Tuesday's exercises in
Hill auditorium, when a representative of the
French government presented to the University a
,ift composed of war trophies collected during the
ecent world conflict. The act symbolizes the es-
eem in which the French nation holds the great
ere, Washington; and it marks as well the grow-
ng tendency'toward establishment of a closer ana
riendlier relationship in peace as well as war of
hetwo great republics of the world...
By the members of the University, the gift is
iighly appreciated as a truly fitting remembrance ot
he services performed by Michigan students on the
eld of battle. The part played by the men who
aid aside their books and took uip the sword when
he call to the colors was sounded was of no pass-
ng importance; and this crowning of. their deeds
y a lasting reminder and memorial should stand
or all time as a bond between the University and
he glorious past which France has shown herself
ratefully ready to commemorate in this appropri-
te way.
ROOM FOR SELF-GOVERNMENT
Student self government at Michigan has been
hiefly imaginary n the past. 'Legislatively there
as been no such thing. When new regulations
ave been the order of the day the faculty have
one ahead with them, or if they werepoilte enough
' request student advice through the medium ofthe
tudent council, they were not in any sense.bound to
lake use of that advice. In fact they seldom did.

123 East Liberty Street

Corner 4th Ave.

One habit we formed when we first began run-
ning around with our girl is that of never telling a
lie. Thus when we were with her at the Whitney
a while back we slipped out between acts to see a
friend of ours.
When we got back we found our girl was'a little
huffy and she begins by asking coldly:
"Well, did you see your friend?"
"Certainly," we replied in our pleasantest voice.
"And what did you say when you saw him?" she
continues in her third-degree tone.
Looking her squarely. in the eye we did a little
George Washington and replies:
"Why, naturally since I went out to see him the
first thing I said was, 'Here's looking at you, Bill.'"
And when this straightforward explanation ap-
peased our girl we tried to forget the price of the
tickets and really enjoy the show.
And doncha remember in the "good old days"
when they used to have vaudeville at the Maj and
ones like the following never failed to get a big
hand? Neither do we.
Him-Why don't you speak to me when I hap-
pen to pass you? I saw you twice on State street
yesterday.
Her-I never talk to people who are in that con-
dition.
