BASKET SQUABBLES WITH THE EAST
Although Michigan and the East were at one
time continually at swords points with one an-
other athletically, it is now a rare occasion on which
our Varsity mixes in with an eastern squad on the
floor of Waterman gymnasium, and even less often
does Ferry field witness a repetition of the old
Now, however, according to action taken in the
last meeting of the Board in Control of Athletics, the
Wolverines will compete in basketball with two
eastern teams this season, with Carnegie Tech on
Dec. 29, and with Colgate on Dec. 30 and 31. Both
contests will be played in Ann Arbor.
Such schedules with colleges and universities
Soutside our ordinary realm - the Conference -
should make for something of a continuance of
Michigan's old-time policy of wide competition. It
does us no harm to take on teams outside the Big
Ten; on the contrary such a plan is exceedingly
valuable to the University. By our competition in
athletics are we known. The high school athlete
at Hinkle's Junction, N. Y., or at Poppy Center,
Cal, learns of Michigan, not through published
statements regarding her course in the Metamor-
physis of the Invertebrate, but through the teams
which Michigan sends to the state in which the
Hinkle's Junction or Poppy Center boys reside.
They learn of her through her prowess on the field,
the diamond, the track or the basket floor. Conse-
quently, the scope of Michigan depends, to a con-
siderable extent at least, on the work of her ath-
letes in foreign fields - and no one can gainsay the
Not that our academic achievements do not re-
flect themselves in every man or woman who is
graduated from Michigan and goes elsewhere to
enter the world of business and work; as a matter
of fact, the academic side of our institution actually
constitutes the vital part, the soul, of the name and
spirit of Michigan. But, at the same time, it is the
popular reputation of the University which we are
now considering, and in no way practically can this
reputation be so enlarged, extended, and made solid
and lasting as in athletics. We therefore welcome
this year's contests with Colgate and Carnegie In
-stitute of Technology, in the hope that this new
movement toward regular competition with the
East.will be continued steadily, year by year.
MAKING BETTER CITIZENS
The main purpose of a university education, if
the courses, curricula, and methods of teaching of
the various institutions of higher education in the
United States are to be taken as a criterion, is to
give the student a theoretical training in whatever
branch of learning he is pursuing. When the stu-
dent has left the protecting walls of his alma mater
and finds himself face to face with a hard, action-
wanting world, he discovers that it is some time be-
fore he can fully apply his theories and hypothe-
sies to the needs and demands of the business
world. It is with the avowed intention, therefore,
of preparing the student to enter the domain where
deeds accomplished mark a man's value and rank
among his fellowmen that the department of so-
ciology of the University has this fall added to its
already extensive program of study - courses
which will give 'the world, trained, practical work-
ers, who, from the moment they leave the Univer-
sity will be fully equipped to take up the impor-
tant duties expected of college graduates and Amer-
In the field of sociology, especially, there is a
pressing need for men and women who know how
to combine theory with practice in producing re-
sults which will make for better community and
general social conditions. Thus these courses will
include practical research in such lines of work as
social administration, community surveys and sta-
tistics, education of abnormal children, psychiatric
social work and child welfare.
Working in harmony with the purposes of these
new branches of study, this week a special oppor-
tunity for hearing men who have already made
names for themselves as sociologists and crinnol-
ogists is offered to students in the sociology de-
partment. The Michigan State Conference of So-
cial' Workers is this year holding its annual meet-
ing in Ann Arbor, with a program of lectures deal-
ing with economics, sociology, and criminology.
Thus two forces are combinng to bring about a
praiseworthy result, namely, of making the stu-
dents who leave the University as its representa-
tives not only well-trained, prepared-to-meet-the-
demands-of-the-world workers, but also citizens of
the highest mental and moral calibre.
THE GENTLE RAZZ
The carpenter and riveter are of great service to
humanity. They are always knocking, but when
they do knock they hit the nail on the head and the
result is something worth while.
Unfortunately not all knockers are carpenters
No man has a right to find fault -with the way
others are doing thingsunless he has done the
thing better himself.
The man whose idea of campus activities is flirt-
ing with a lamp-post has no right to criticise the one
who does go out for activities in the effort to ac-
complish something worthwhile for his own benefit
and that of his school. The man who considers his
mission in life the tucking away of three "squares"
a day has no right to tell another man that he isn't
doing enough work.
The moral is, that if you are one of those peo-
ple who must knock - knock yourself first.
Mr. Zero, of auction block fame, seems to have
developed into a second Coxie.
"Romnance'", Our Own Opera
(Prologue - A Court Scene)
The scene was in a royal court,
Where kings and queens did come;
Then entered knights and princes, too,
They were the bluebloods, by gum.
Sir Erm was there, in a suit of mail,
And Erma wore clothes of silk;
But the whole court laughed when Erman ar-
Sipping a glass of milk.
The closest of all unto the king
As usual was fluffy Ermine,
And right in the middle of everything
Were our old friends, Herman and Sherman.
(To be continued when we see or are fit)
Inquisitive one-How come your cheeks so pretty
Rosy-cheeked one-They are painted, -by God.
Quoth Eppie Taff:
Gone is young John Blocksmith,
An aviator he,
Who took his girl up in the clouds
'N' lost all control, you see.
Heard in Keim's
"How in the world can you eat pie a la mode an
hour after a heavy supper?"
"With a fork," came the facetious reply.
This Doesn't Apply to All
Twice as fair
Since she went an'
Bobbed her hair.
Our Latest Song Entitled:
"Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder of
Someone Else." - Ermine.
Friends and others
Don't play poker,
Don't shoot dice.
But if you gamble and don't pay,
You'll live to play some other day, -maybe.
