A man spends four of the best years of his life,
or six, as the case may be, in a teeming little uni-
verse called a university. He forms certain hab-
its ; receives breadth of vision ; obtains strength of
purpose; acquires that intangible something known
as "polish". He loses the brilliant green hue he
aired upon arrival. He takes on the qualities and
attributes of an educated man. He learns to think
In return for his nurture, this development of
mind and body, he gives - what? A few dollars
perhaps. He pays a small tuition which does not
approach the cost of the education which lie has re-
ceived. But the finer, more worth-while qualities
which he learns as a student are beyond mere price.
The friends he makes, the experience he receives ---
who can measure these in dollars and cents ?
Many years ago it was said, "A man lives within
himself." A man can look at a university as a finan-
cial transaction, in which he is given the privilege
of sitting in certain seats in payment of a specified
number of dollars. He can pay a certain amount of
money and leave the institution with a sheepskin
neatly lettered - cost ten dollars -value ten dol-
Or he can enter into the spirit of learning with
joy and pride in the doing. He need not necessar-
i y be an "A" student, but he is at the University
for a purpose and knows what that purpose is. He
tastes the joys of the different phases of college
life, without which it degenerates into a memory
contest. He meets others. He gains all there is to
be obtained from life. Most important, he gives'
something of himself -in return.
To some a university education may mean merely
so many hours of grind, so much money expended.
But to the broader man - the wiser man - a uni-
versity education means a ripening of powers and
a building of friendships - a fruitful valley to be
remembered with genuine satisfaction in the whole
long course of his life's journey.
The blue laws are now firmly established in Can-
ada. As proof, we find among our exchanges a
clipping from the University of Toronto publica-
tion, which announces a meeting of its staff for a

COURTESY FOR MICHIGAN
(From the Daily Illini, Sunday, Mar. 6)
It was regrettable that the Illinois
basketball team should be mistreated
by Michigan fans at the recent Ann
Arbor game between the Illini and
Wolverine teams. The flare of un-
sportsmanlike attitude was wholly un-
expected from a Conference crowd,
and has been the cause of wonderment
by Illinois followers since.
Yet any undesirable actions on the
part of rowdies in Michigan bleachers
does not warrant a like treatment of
the Michigan team when it appears
on the Gym Annex floor. What Mich-
igan permits is Michigan's business.
Illinois' business is to maintain her
own high standards of sportsmanship.
The excellent reputation we have
earned through years of consistent ef-
fort to establish ourselves first, last
and always as courteous hosts must
never be sulliedby a single infraction
of our conduct code.
When the Michigan team engages
our own at the Gym Annex tomorrow
night let the reception accorded it be
in keeping with Illinois' past record.

WILL "BUNTY" PULL THE CROWD?
Michigan has had her very fair share of notable
playwrights and actors. University training may
have had much to do, in a general and cultural way,
with their success. But as far as specialized study
and practice of the sort of drama they have written
and performed is concerned, the inspiration has
come after, and n ot during, college days. We have
had no proper field for the trial of talent. The at-
mosphere of devotion to the lighter and jollier sort
of production -- Opera, SpotlighteMinstrels - has
taken possession of the student mind; and men
and women who haste looked for practice in the
more general and representative drama of the day,
have found few opportunities, and even those have
been looked down upon or neglected by the campus
until this fall.
The Comedy club has hewn to the line through
years of indifference, searching each winter for the
most worth-while and presentable piece of modern
popular drama with a "happy ending" and putting
months of effort into the attempt to approximate the
art which crowds metropolitan theaters. Perhaps
this year's play, "Bunty Pulls the Strings," with its
quaint, wholesome beauty of plot and the charm of
its dialect, has been too fortunately chosen to be
compared honestly with the productions of the past,
some of which, willy-nilly, have failed to "go over"
in spite of all the hard work in the world. But al-
ways there has been sincerity, and, within the lim-
its set by the sometimes unworthy vehicle and the
necessarily amateur cast, a production worthy of'
double the audiences which have been too usual in
the past - and too critical.
But this year we have had a dramatic renais-
sance. New clubs to promote the art have been
formed; new interest in the play whose attraction
is lasting instead of local and temporary is in the
air; special courses in playwriting, dramatic tech-
nique, and acting have found a remarkable response.
It is perhaps hardly the time to suggest that the
union of all this splendid energy under the banner
of the Comedy club would be the greatest step yet
to be taken to vitalize Michigan's progress in popu-
lar drama; the enthusiasm in itself is so reassur-
ing a sign, that the future may be counted on to
take care of itself. 1
Graham Moffett's delightful story of "Bunty"
and the influence of her charming depth of insight
over the lives of Tammas and Rab and the rest of
the humorous west-Scotland characters is worth
seeing if just for the sake of its humor-brimming
lines and its living plot. As Michigan's greatest
evidence of an active and striving interest in the
best modern comedy, "Bunty" should have an ad-
ditional and local "pull" upon us which ought to
pack the Whitney tonight. There is plenty of room
on the campus for an enthusiasm in popular drama
equaling that which now greets the Opera.
MORE THAN A DEAL IN KNOWLEDGE
Too many university graduates think of.their ed-
ucation as a business transaction.

He wears the garment home and forgets all about
the matter. He has the coat and the merchant has
the money. The merchant is not indebted to him.

Not a spot-light, melodrama, revue, nor mu-
sical comedy, but a clever reproduction of actual
cafe life in France. Written and produced en-'
tirely by men who were "over there," aided by
typical doughboys, bucks, black boys,
tails, majes, British Tommies, French Poilus, Chic
Representation of those battles not fought on
the "lines" but behind them: original,-a bit dar-
ing,-realistic, and with enough seriousness to
be worth while. You get the entertainment, and
the Post gets a standard of colors. Nothing like
this has ever been seen here before.
