Wrath And Amusement Characterize
Replies To Denunciation Of Petting]

dignant individuals who proclaim' no
sex, and even a dormitory whos~mem-
bers rise boldly in defense of league
house ideals, all impugn the motives
and refute the arguments of The
Daily's contributor,
The most general conclusion of the
irate defenders of modern morals is
that his lack of experience In the gen-
ter emotions is due in large part to
inherent disabilities. "Girls usually
look right past his kind," says one. "He
must think quite a lot of himself and
it's no wonder he's never been
Another declares that he has un-
doubt-edly lost his sense of rhythm
and in self defense must declare the
rest of the world to be out of step.
One writer declares himself willing to
wager all his pocket money and rags
that "this man whd says he is going
back to the square dance days will
not have any followers."
But the criticisms presented reach
a more fundamental issue than any
of these. "We cannot admit," says a
"Male -Student," "that the researches
of the one who has never been kissed
are i nany sense complete. The nun -
ber of girls at Michigan who see no
objective value to 'petting,' who. have
retained in the fullest degree a sense
for the morility of our parents, and
who are 'nice girls' in the clearest
meaning of the term is at least as
great as at any time in the past."
Shows No Immorality .
"And I fail to see,'" says another,
'how acting openly in these matters
is a sign of immorality. On the con-
trary, it seems to me to be merely
an expression of a characteristic of
the younger generation to look upon
such situations in -a matter of fac't
way." - ,
A- senior closes his remarks by say
ing, "The consistency of human stand-
ards is ah great as it ever was and
our moral fiber as fine. Frankness can
never harm men and womel who see
in college the real value to after life
of honest and sincere morality."
Instrumental And
Vocal Numbers On
F aculty Proram
f '
(By Edgar H. A les)
Distinguished by the appearance 9f
two singers new to Ann Arbor audi-
ences, and the performance of num-
bers not often heard, the Twilight
concert given by the School of Music
faculty Sunday afternoon in Hill audi-
torium was of unusual interest.
Odra 0. Patton, '15, S. of M., chose
for his opening number Mozart's ex-
quisite air, "I mio tesoro," giving it a
decidedly pleasing rendition. Mr. Pat-
ton's voice is. a lyric tenor of limited
volume, but of velvety smoothness and
unusual sympathetic appeal.
The technical difficulties of the Moz-
art number he obviated, to some ex-
tent, by transferring to the piano the
florid middle portion which is usually
sung. This selection, together with
Delibes' "Myrto," Speakes' "Serenade,"
and Hageman's "Happiness" were en-
thusiastically received by the audi-
Nora Wetmore, the other new sing-
er, was a distinct disappointment.
Perhaps she was only temporarily in
poor condition, but whatever the
cause, her offering of three Russian
songs served only to emphasize vocal
limitations which, from the first, were
painfully evident.
Two comparatively little known
Chopin numbers, the .first valse, .Op.
69, and the Polonaise, Op. "24, were
excellently interp rete'd- by Miss Nell
Stockwell whose musicg.l gtfts are
quite familiar. The valse 'has been
somewhat eclipsed by the popularity
of the one in C Sharp minor, but its,
soft and ingratiating melancholy is
characteristic of the composer in his
most petic mo- d:
Likewise, the Polonaise has suffer-
ed in comparison'to the so-called Mili-
tary and Herioc polonaises. It' is,
nevertheless, a splendid exhibition of

the virile side of Chopin's complex
The "Danse Sacree et Danse Pro-
fane" of Debussey, played by Albert
Lockwood with an accompaniment of

Consider Offcial Guide
The report of Prof. James W. Glover,
of the mathematics department, on
furloughs and leaves of absence was
accepted by the Senate council and re-
ferred to the Regents.
Appointment of a new University
official was suggested at the meeting.
The official would be a sort of guide
for the purpose of showing visit'ors
over the University. No definite action
as to the appointment of such an of-
ficial was taken. However, the dis-
cussion was held over until the next

Destiny - Tigert
"I do not believe that a 'man ever
succeeds because of outside circum-
stances," said, John J. Tigert, United
States commissioner of education,
when speaking on ".The Elements of
Greatness" at the Wesleyan Guild lec-
ture Sunday night in the Methodist
Mr. Tigert stated that all of us have
two creators, God and that creation
which comes through our own efforts.
He said that althoughthe constitution
stated that all men were created equal:
this did not apply to all of their as-
pects any more than it means all men
looked just alike. The difference be-
tween men is a matter of. education.
This education, although it has made
our civilization possible, is not with-
out its dangers. He showed a num-
ber of examples of this danger and
stated that to him Napoleon and Cae-,
sar were two of the greatest failures
in 'the world's history. Along with
education must go a consecration of
will. The -fact that so many people
get their criterion distorted causes
them to lose sight of the fact that one
of the greatest elements of greatness
is unselfishness'.

gives the University the distinction of
possessing the only existing specimen
of this family. The skeleton was dis-
covered in Texas some eight years ago
by Prof. Ermine C. Case of the paleon-

labor. ,
While exploring in Texas, Professor
Case first came across a portion of the
petrified remains in Tryassic rocks..
This he removed to the museum here..
Three years ago he returned to the
same spot, where further investigation
revealed the presence of the skele-
