men wear their pots, the members of the other
classes during the colder months cling rather half-
heartedly to their distinguishing headgear, but there
the whole thing stops. Even the good old cordu-
roys of the engineers are becoming almost a minus
quantity on the campus, and the whole atmosphere
of "college" has rather suddenly switched to one
of ultra-conservatism in dress.
An editorial in the Cornell Era discusses the cos-
tume which the senior class will adopt for the last
few months of its college career. Last year, it
claims, all seniors wore corduroys ; some years be-
fore, brilliantly striped jackets, and even before
that - striped vests. Imagine the dignified seniors
of Michigan appearing in any such ridiculous attire!
The origin of this sudden wave of revulsion for
"college" practices seems quite unknown. It has
descended upon Michigan and engulfed the stu-
dents of the University to such a degree that the
slightest semblance of anything which is out of ti
ordinary in dress or actions is iumniediately Ilotedl
down. It may be the advent of a higher standardl
of learning, but that is rather doubtful for there
seems little evidence of any increased intellectual
stimulus upon the campus ; it may herald the ap-
proach of other changes which are to be mighty in
their benefits to Michigan men; really, however, it
is neither of these, but simply the superficially so-
phisticated, hyper-critical attitude which is reflected
in much of the literature of today. "
It may be the necessary transition to higher
things, but, seriously, is it as much real pleasure to
affect the nonchalance of the blase University man
of 1921, as it would be to just quietly, or rather,
quite noisily, slide back to the really human, "col-
lege" atmosphere of a few years ago? Why not get
away from this conventional attitude of strict ad-
herence to rules of dress and conduct, and enjoy,
for just four years, the real spirit of college?
We recommend that the women of the University
get some sort of system in their marching. 'They
have lately taken to marching eight abreast instead
of six or four, and everybody knows that it is not
good military tactics to have more than four. Why
not organize and form squads?
The truth of the peace conference is to come out
at last. Former Secretary of State Lansing has
written a book about it. .Well, we suspected that
some of our Americans would sooner or later let us
in on it.
In the old days cows grazed within the campus
pickets. Anyone noticing the labyrinthine cross-
maze of footpaths today would think old times had
returned Keep off the grass!

SUNDAY, MARCH 27, 1921.
Night Editor-RENAUD SHERWOOD.
EASTER
Another page has been torn from the calendar ofj
the years and Easter, day of praise and rejoicing, of
new clothes and hats, of candy eggs and imitation
chiekcne > here once more. It is interesting, in
considering tie day, to note just how far its sig-
nificance ias departed from the original conception
of thw *nal1 coterie of believers who passed from,
one to the oiher nearly two thousand years ago the
ngc.'s words. "He is risen." We shall find that
,s meaning has not changed to such a great extent,
and tha Faor is still in its intrinsic and funda-
mental ense the same, though expressed by twen-
tieth century standards.
"is Sunday Easter? Forgot all about it. Must
get jO ch.urch on that day by all means." So saith
the business man, the student, and the world in gen-
qral which isn uite so religious a world as it
might be during the remainder of the year. But it
never forgets Easter. That single day seems to
have worked itself into the minds and hearts of all
men as a time for getting away from the worries
of business and of life in general for just an hour
or two, to make at least an annual appearance in
church.
The fact that Easter las also come to mean a
tiime when new clotljes are to be worn - when the
"female of the species" decks herself out in a new
bonnet with other details to match, while the male
contents himself as a general rule wits a new tie or
perhaps shoes - is almost secondary, quite neg-
ligible. For we are a vain world, and we must be
pardoned if at times we feel the urge of indulging
our vanity just a little.
Despite the new apparel, Easter means in the
twentieth century just what it has always meant -
a resurrection from the sordidness of life in gen-
eral, and a consecration to the better things which
the world has to offer us. And it will always be
thus, for the bells ring out just a bit more merrily,
the sun shines a little brighter, and the world in
general is just a little happier on Easter than on
other days.

'The more we see of these lads
Parading up and down State street
In their "Now you chase me girls"
Gawlfing clothes
The more convinced we become that
They're probably tee hounds
In more ways than one.
We thank you.

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES
(From the Daily Illini.)
What is to become or the college
professionaltathletes, those who sell
their athletic ability in order to gain
a monetary reward? Are they to be
branded, ostracised, scorned by their
fellow students, even by those with
whom they have been dearly associ-
ated?
The case has been reopened by the
investigation of University of Michi-
gan authorities into charges that Pitch-
er Parks was guilty of competing with
an organized professional baseball
team during the summer months.
This only recalls to mind several
other noted instances. A few years
ago Francis Ouimet, internationally
famous golfer, was declared ineligible
by the staid eastern clubs because he
worked in an athletic store and sold
golf equipment bearing his own auto-
graph. -The western clubs, however,
realizing the utter absurdity of the af-
fair, failed to accept the decision of
the Atlantic seaboard and after consi-
derable pressure had been brought to
bear, Ouimet was reinstated as an am-
ateur.
Recently the University of Pennsyl-
vania football team was disrupted
when players were banished for hav-
ing accepted money for exhibition
games after the close of the regular
season. At Illinois a few seasons ago,
Naprstek, sensational catcher, was bar-
red because he played baseball in ord-
er to make enough money to return
to the University.
We have our- managers, our editors,
and what not who capitalize their uni-
versity training during the summer
months in order to make money. No-
thing is said concerning them. Nothing
is said of the swimmers who work as.
life guards during the summer.
Why is the athlete not allowed to
capitalize his university training dur-
ing the "off season" in order to help
defray expenses? The cases are ex-
actly parallel and the question of loy-
alty and sentiment does not enter into
the considerations at all.
It is charged that he professional,
if the person who plays clean sports
for money during the -summer can be
termed a professional in the strict
phraseology, has little interest in the
university and that therefore he is a
detriment to the sport. It is absurd
to believe this. Who can say of Parks
that he is not loyal to Michigan after
all that he has accomplished, toiling on
the diamond day after day with only a
slight reward? And the same applies
to the men at Penn and Naprstek at
Illinois. All are now accounted among
the most creditable alumni. @
The players themselves do not re-
gard the "professional" with disfavor.
The coaches smile secretly. The stu-
dent body does not care. It is only
the old "fogies," imbued with ancient
ideas, who are creating the disturb-
ance. It is time that college athletics
be put on a sensible basis.
"Sports for sports' sake" is a bril-
liant ideal-but "sports for sports'
sake" during the college term is all
that can be expected of an athlete.

Second ditto-Even as a freshman. In fact he

Second ditto-Why so?
First-I just heard the other day that nights

Second--Well, what good would that do?
First-Oh, just think when he dropped in to

WHY NOT BE HUMAN?

"The years creep on apace" and with them van-
ish one by one the good old traditions of the days.
of yore which distinguished college students from
other men and made them a class apart, indulging
themselves in a last good time - a last little
flurry - before the stern reqtirements of toil should
swalow all of the pretty dreams, the delightful ec-
centricities which each man cherishes in his youth.
We often hear it debated - "what's the matter
with Michigan" and it is quite possible. that those
who spend the greater share of their time discuss-
ing the question have little or no sincerity in the so-
lutions whi); they offer to this most vital of cam-
pus problems. But really, is it so hard to get down
to the root of the matter - to find out what is the
trouble with Michigan? Isn't the answer really to be
found just in the fact that Michigan has of late
dropped all of those little traditions which meant so
much to her sons of old?
How many of them do we keep up? The fresh-
