life. At least two days this past week have seen
long stories on page one of the Tribune, featuring a
girl who ran away from the U. of C. The Tribune
also favors Mithigan with like publicity whenever it
gets the opportunity.
All stuff of this character, of course, tends to give
ousiders the idea that young folks in college are
mainly a collection of reprobates and degenerates.
It may help to sell the paper, but it likewise reflects
much unwarranted discredit upon this University
and others. If we out here at Ann Arbor were half
as wild as they try to picture us, we might have
little room for complaint. But the trouble is that
the newspaper reporters "play up" the exception
rather than the rule, overwork it sadly, and thus
lead to the formation of wrong opinions. They are
not telling the significant things about Michigan.
Homely illustrations of great principles, as-
everyone surely has observed before, often turn up
in unexpected places. Over in a certain quarter of
Waterman gymna'sium, where students who desire
it are taught the manly art of boxing, there is a rule
for, admission which suggests a useful analogy. A
prospective pupil is required to fie able to take a
severe drubbing, to expect many thumps and
bruises, along with gruelling tests of endurance;
and he is received for instruction only on these
terms. For college students preparing to enter
upon their life work the suggestiveness of this re-
quirement is both apt and forceful.
The rules of life are nowhere catalogued and
printed, but only feebly stated now and then,,here
and there, in random paragraphs such as this. Mor-
tals are left to learn them largely through experi-
ence, and most of us learn them tardily, and none
too well. Here is a case, however, where a prac-
tical and fundamental rule, applicable to all worth-
while activity, is being effectively taught to begin-
ners - in a quarter, too, which it is to be regretted
enjoys no high repute for its instructive and con-
structive associations.
Every undertaking worth a candle is attended
with difficult conditions, has its obstacles and snags,
carries its heavy burden which at times seems crush-.-
ing, excites envy and opposition and attack, often
brings grievous injuries and lasting scars. Excep,
tions to the rule are but strokes of fortune, or else
are instances in which capable persons are playing
for less than man-size stakes.
Hard work, risk, blunders, defeats, and a certain
amount of agony are to be expected, along with
thrills of partial victory and the final success which
make the fight worth while. To be able to "stand
the gaff" is the requirement of ambitious men in
any line. Those who do not expect a period of
ordeal, or who cannot face it and stay in the ganke
to the end,.are* simply excluded from life's larger
achievements, until they may learn the hard truth
from experience.
But the neophytes in boxing, over in Waterman
gymnasium, are obliged to learn it before they eveu
are admitted to the course. We may take a sound
and timely tip from the exponents of the 'manly

Oh it's fatal to love to behold in the day-time
The girl that you kissed in the dark;
Such a look will destroy all delight in that gay time,
And extinguish Romance's last spark.
For where is the maiden whom Morn robes in
Like that which the night can bestow,
'When the planets lean over from heaven's top story
To lend her the beauty they know?
And the moon gives assistance - Diana's mild
Girds the lake with a circlet of pearl;
Then your lass is a fairy, bewitching and tender -
Next day, she is only a girl.
So all you young flappers, give heed to my warning:
When on Pleasure's wide sea you embark;
Never look, in the pallid grey . dawn of the morn-
On the girl that you kissed in the dark.
