Night Editor-EDW. F. LAMBRECHT
Casting a ballot is the work of an instant. A few
scratches of a pen or pencil and it has been com-
pleted. But this is by no means all there is to giv-
ing a proper vote. Snap judgments, especially as
to candidates in an election, are seldom sufficient.
The officers to be elected today must be more
than the most popular men of the moment. The
proper discharge of the duties of these class repre-
sentatives requires, as is well known, ability and
hard work. To elect men able and willing to put
these requisite into the jobs is the problem of the
voter. This necessarily demands looking up, to
some extent, the past performance of the candi-
dates in public positions, and deliberation on their
Indifference taking the form of failure to vote at
all, is an evil that will probably be avoided this year,
but it should nevertheless be guarded against. By
failing to cast a ballot a voter makes the officers
elected just so much less representative, and if
enough voters commit the same neglect, peanut pol-
itics finds a fertile field.
Make it a point to vote today, and vote right.
HOW ABOUT IT, MICHIGAN?
One thousand five hundred Ohio State rooters
are planning to come to Ann Arbor by special train
to support their team at the Michigan-Ohio game a
week from Saturday. A total of five thousand
seven hundred and twenty seats have been reserved
by students, alumni, and supporters of the Ohio in-
stitution. Of course, the Oberlin disaster of last
week may dampen the enthusiasm of some of these,
but the Buckeyes are backing their team to the last
ditch. The number of seats they have reserved
verifies this statement.
The Michigan Union has announced that a spe-
cial train accommodating one hundred and twenty-
five persons will carry Michigan rooters to Urbana
and return for only $14.60 - almost one-half the
regular rate. Michigan students will go to Illinois
to support Michigan's team. But, will the Union
have difficulty in securing one hundred and twenty-
five supporters? Or with true Michigan spirit and
characteristic Wolverine loyalty, will our backers so
swamp the Union with applications that popular de-
mand will force those in charge to find room for
more? Cheer-leaders will be at Urbana; the band
is planning to go. How about rooters?
Ohio will probably have at least fifteen hundred
student backers at Ann Arbor. Are only one hun-
d-ed and twenty-five Michigan men going to Illi-
A BIG TEN ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
If plans to be discussed at a dinner of the alumni
of Western Conference colleges, Monday evening,
in Cleveland, prove popular to all, it is probable that
a permanent Western Conference Alumni associa-
tion will be formed in the near future, probably at
that self-same dinner.
It is to be hoped that the plan will go through as
expected. Not for nothing have the universities of
the Big Ten banded themselves together in a group
both for the promotion of athletic competition ard
general co-operation among them. For a good many
years these ten institutions have been acting as one
great unit in many respects, the activities of each
being devoted ultimately to the whole. With a few
exceptions, the spirit has been of the best, and the
organization has undoubtedly been of benefit to
every one of the schools represented.
Past happenings, most of them of a minor na-
ture, however, have indicated that a similar unifi-
cation of the alumni of all the universities in this
same group would not be a bad thing for the spirit
of each of the several alumni associations. An ex-
change of wordy buffets between alumni, notably
of Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, carried on last
spring through the sporting columns of a Chicago
paper, and all growing out of a single outburst of an
over-heated Michigander, would seem to point to
the need for some sort of co-operation between the
alumni as well as between the schools themselves.
The Big Ten was organized to create a better
spirit of competition between the universities of the
Western Conference, .and not for the purpose of
promoting antagonism between individual gradu-
ates. Unity of the schools, ideal unity, is only.pos-
sible when the graduates of those schools endeavor
to maintain among themselves just such a spirit of
sensible rivalry as exists among the various student
bodies. If the proposed new Western Conference
association is able to effect and bring about such a
unification and such a spirit of mutual help and
consideration, it will have done much to multiply the
benefits of the Conference organization as a whole.
It should not be necessary in a school with our
traditions, our glories of the past and present, to
repeat every year the need of greater co-operation
on the part of the student body to the cheer leaders.
Eleven men fighting alone for eleven thousand
others who may sit passively on the sidelines can
seem a rather harsh picture to look upon, but the
fact is as true today as it ever was - that the team
alone cannot win the game: the men and women
behind the team must help decide the final score.
Get behind your cheer leaders, Wolvetines! The
big battles are just ahead of us. Change those puny
whisperings to man-size yells. Let the alumni go
back to their desks after the game with the voices
of husky thousands ringing in their ears. We do
not want our cheer leaders to go through pantomime
exercises. 'They are doing their level best for the
school and for the team. It is up to us to do like-
wise, by following these men "until the air is rent
as if by thunder". In the Saturdays to come Mich-
igan expect~ every man to do his duty!

Erm, Erma, and Erman,
Ermine, Herman, and Sherman,
All are getting there;
Can you make room in your family
For a lonely Teddy Bear?

If the freshmen form this year's Block M,
There's one thing that's not foreseen,
While the M's supposed to be maize and blue,
With the frosh it is sure to be green.

Look at a greased pig.
