ART THE THIRD YEAR
a, interested in the possibility of
to make Michigan men out of the
an material that is brought into the
year, met in the fall of 1920 to per-
r system for freshman instruction.

not only laughs at the belief that educational taxes
are becoming overburdensome, but has compiled
figures to scare it entirely away.
In scouting what he terms "this ridiculous idea",
the speaker points to the American vice of extrav-
agance. "During the last year," he says, "we spent
approximately $22,500,o00,000 for luxuries, .and
about $I,300,000,000 for all kinds of education, in-
cluding elementary, secondary, normal school and
university. Out of this sum less than $300,000,000
went to the support of our higher institutions of
learning. Of the total luxury bill, $300,000,000
was spent for face powders and cosmetics, $oo,-
oo0,0o for cigarettes, $8ooooo,ooo for cigars,
$500,000,ooo for tobacco and snuff, and $50,000,000
for chewing gum. We spent twice as much for face
powder and cozetics as we spent for higher edu-
cation. The total cigarette, cigar, and tobacco bill
was about $2,oo,oooooo, nearly $oo,ooo,ooo
more than was spent for all kinds of education; and
the total chewing gum bill was nearly twice as much
as we spent for the training of teachers in the
These figures speak only too plainly to be mis-
taken, and as Mr. Coffman points out .later in his
speech, "The cry of the man who says he cannot
support our universities is likely to be the cry of the
man who wishes to spend more for luxuries." If the
time ever comes when institutions of higher learn-
ing are really a burden upon the nation, then it will
be because universities will have becom'e so vast in
proportions that the great majority of American
citizens will be college trained, and college trained
men and women will be willing to bear some burden
in order that succeeding generations may have the
benefit of that same advantage.
' THE FROSH WIELD A BIG STICK
Members of the freshman classes, in voting Mon-
day to ostracise from their ranks one first-year man
who has been branded "undesirable", partly be-
cause of failure to wear his grey pot, have shown a
good spirit and a pleasing willingness as a body to
support the Student council in its enforcement of
Their action should prove .a lesson to any remain-
ing delinquents, by showing them part of what may
happen if they, too, insist on continuing in their
erring frays. Bani hment from one's .own group
class is about as severe a punishment as could be
administered: the "man without a class" is in a
decidedly unenviable position.
Unless some of the daring spectators who per-
ford acrobatic feats on top of the concrete stands
during baseball games desist, the Univdrsity hospi-
tal may find itself with a few cases of broken bones
and cracked skulls on its hands, and somebody will
have to stand the cost of a funeral or so.
The Columbia Spectator waxed mildly rebel-
lious recently. "Heigh-ho !" it' groaned, "Don't pro-
fessors ever get spring fever? Or is it unethical
for them to cut classes?" Probably the latter: we
doubt if they are .much more hardened to the influ-
ences of balmy weather than are their students.
The price has dropped on at least one commod-
ity - a round trip from Detroit on the M. C. All
aboard for the Ann Arbor special!
My Tumbleddown Hack in Athlone
I'm' a long way from home
And my thoughts ever roam
To ould Erin far over the sea;
There my Ford has a berth,
Hocked fro all it is worth,ge
And my flivver is calling for me:
Oh, I want to go back to that tumbledown hack
Where you never can open a door,
Just to clamber right in, and to start for a spin,
Just to get that old bacl ache pnce more.
There's a light, not 'so bright, guiding me home
Down the long road of white cobblestones ;
Just "three balls" keep be back.
From that tumbledown hack,
From that tumbledown hack in Athlone.
It Is Rumored
That Ann Arbor merchants held a co-operative
meeting the other night, and to conclude the affairs
they all arose and sang that famous song of prices,
"United We Stand, Divided We Fall".
Oh, for some national hero to come to our com-
munity and put the "pry" into "pryces".
And Then She Blushed
The professor was trying to explain a proposi-
tion to a certain young lady in his class.. The young
lady was not exactly dense. She simply couldn't
understand what the professor meant. After the
first half hour of discussioh the following conver-
sation took place:
"Do you understand it now ?"
"No, professor, I'm' afraid it doesn't penetrate."
"But it's as plain as the nose on your face."
"Well, I can't see that."
It is obvious that the young lady was not cross-

joker as he handed the stenographer a rubber pen-
