BACK YOUR BALLOT
Tweity-two hundred men voted on the new self-
government plan Thursday, and all but seventy-two
said "yes." They picked six of the best and most
representative men on the campus for the Student
Advisory committee which will be the mouthpiece of
the campus. This overwhelming and almost unani-
mous vote for the proposition shows a student view-
point deserving careful consideration by the faculty ;
and with the Dean of Students in its favor the like-
lihood of adoption is very high.
This being so, it will be well for every man to con-
sider just what his ballot for the proposition means.
First of all, it is his ratification of the plan in its
technical aspect; secondly, it is his approval of the
student self-government theory and his declaration
that he believes he and his fellows can nake a go of
it; finally, it is an implied promise of genuine sup-
port to the new form of student government and to
the Student Advisory committee.
Next on the program, then, is adoption by the
Unversity administration; and after that, it will be
up to us to back our ballot.

use his time in college on things of intellectual
worth and pick up the technical side of journalism
by working on papers during summer vacation or
his spare time.
USING THE SUMMER SESSION
With the news at hand that Summer session an-
nouncements will be out the latter part of this week,
those of us who are in the habit of planning some-
what ahead of time will begin to weigh the advan-
tages of eight weeks of perspiratory classes as over
against a job of some sort and casually try to decide
how we shall spend the vacation.
It is hardly too early now for all to consider the
question. Remunerative positions during the three
months when there is no regular school may make
for a large degree of benefit to the student in sup-
plying him with spending money for the following
year, providing, of course, that he is able to save
anything while at work; But there are numerous
advantages which may also come from attendance
upon a summer of study at the University. By com-
ing back for these eight weeks, the student can make
up any work in which he is somewhat deficient.
Summer school, moreover, offers an especially val-
uable opportunity for those who have entered c1-
lege at the beginning of the second semestr of the
year, an opportunity for taking extra work and
catching up with their regular classes. And for the
student who has entered at the regular time and who
ordinarily would graduate in June, it also presents a
means of enabling him to complete his work in three
and one-half years.
There are, of course, four or five weeks left be-
tween the end of summer classes and the beginning
of the fall semester, in which time the zealous
among us can earn a little ready cash. By all means
we should consider stmmer school as an opportu-
nity of real value, particularly since Michigan's'
Smmer'session differs from many others in that it
offers nearly the same courses as do the two regu-
lar semesters of the year, under the same in-
structors!;
The amendment to the state constitution provid-
ing for a bonus for all ex-service men who are cit-
izens of Michigan has been passed by the legisla-
ture and goes before the people for a vote on April
4. It will be possible to vote on this proposition by
mail as in the fall election, and it is the wise ex-
soldier, sailor or marine who will get his applica-
tion for a ballot in the hands of his county clerk
now.
Congratulations, Gargoyle! Now that such a
good showing has been made in the Judge College
Wits contest, the Best of Michigan Humor can be
saved up for your own pages.
The Acolyte article on student activities is going
to provide one of the main campus topics for weeks.
You or your activity is almost sure to be among the
casualties.
One Coxey's army that has the national sympa-
thy: the pilgrimage of Chicago tenants to lick the
"rent hogs" by getting a bill through the state legis-
lature.
Once more will an envious group of men students
line the curb in front if the Whitney tonight and
long for a job as scene shifter.

Our Daily Novelette
I
The shades of night had just ceased falling so that
naught broke the stillness of the night save the nerv-
ous tread of Gwendolyn's feet as she paced the floor
of her league house room. She made a move as
though to back out of the room in order to turn
around, then thought better of it and still continued
her pacing. It was plainly evident that she was

under a severe mental strain - that within her was
raging one of these eternal conflicts between right
and wrong which each woman's soul at some time
or another is the battling ground for.
II
In looking back now she wondered how she had
ever come to begin that habit. She knew at the time
that it would not add to her popularity with the
men; that on the other hand, deep down in their
hearts, men actually hated to see nice girls doing
this sort of thing. She noted the difference from
the start; men who had previously looked upon her
with an approving eye scarcely glanced at her when
she wended her way across the campus now. Beyond
doubt, most men did not approve of women doing
this sort of thing.
III
And then througl her bosom surged that world-
old rebellious thought which has so often bothered
womankind since time immemorial.. Men did this
very thing with impunity, why shouldn't she? The
double standard, condemned if done by the women,
condoned if done by the men. But clearly she saw
that she must bow to this man-made law. Carefully
she laid the woolen stockings away and picked up
a pair of silken ones. Spring was here and deep
down in her heart she was tired of wearing those
woolen ones anyway.

TRADE SCHOOL JOURNALISM
Just what should be the education of a journal-
ist? Should it be technical instruction stressing the
formal phases of newspaper writing -- the feature
story, the make-up, heads, and the lead of the news-
paper story - or should it be the broadest kind of
education that will give the would-be newspaper ed-
itor a real understanding of the things he writes
about?
The correct answer to this question will doubtless
become clearer with time as there are at present in
the United States institutions of instruction that em-
phasize nearly every variation between the purely
mechanical plan and the wholly intellectual method
of educating the journalist.
In the meantime there is good reason to believe
that the former, or.trade school theory of teaching
journalism, will not win out. Although on the face
the most practical manner of instruction, it is in the
long run the most shortsighted if the aim is to pro-
duce leaders in the newspaper profession. Dealing
as it does with all the varied interests of daily life,
journalism in its highest phases demands a liberal
knowledge of history, economics, literature, and all
the other sciences and arts with which the broadly
educated man should be acquainted.
While the journalist may do much toward this
necessary improvement of his mind after he has be-
gun to make his own ilving, the most practical time
for him to get the essential broad education is while
he can avail himself of 'the assistance and facilities
of a university or college. And this is the weakness
of the narrow instruction that will meet his needs
immediately upon graduation but will carry him lit-
tle further than the high school graduate when he
is confronted with the biggest problems in his pro-
fession.
There is no doubt that it is a real advantage for
one who is planning on entering a newspaper career
to know something of the practical difficulties in the
daily routine, but it would seem that he could best
