unde- way at the Union, looking forWard to carry-
Ing on this work in the fall. It is essential that the
corps of advisers he thoroughly organized and ade-
quately instructed before the present term ends.
Sophomores with memories still fresh from their
own experiences as first year men, will make the
best kind of advisers, under the guidance of their
upperclass leaders. Men of the present freshman
class who expect to distinguish themselves in cam-
pus activities during the remainder of their col-
lege course, can make no better beginning than to
sign up for this work immediately, so that they may
be properly instructed to assume their duties as
nen'tors next fall.

The well-known saw has it, "You can't teach old
dogs new tricks", but if reports of thos who have
recently returned from England can be believed it
seems that the Yankee influence over there is fast
proving an exception to this proverb. For they.as-
,sure us that the British bulldog is rapidly catching
on to many of the tricks taught him by his Ameri-
can cousin.
Bond Street is daily taking on the appearance and
atmosphere of Broadway and the Strand 'is legin-
ning to march to the syncopated music of the
Bronx. The American hustler is not looked upon
as the pilgarlic he used to be, but beneath his light-
hearted air the stolid Englishman is beginning to see
a system and efficiency which he himself could
adopt to great advantage. His afternoon tea, his
four o'dock cricket match, and .his saunter down
Paternoster Row he is beginning to find make se-
rious inroads on his day's work. In fact so much
does the Britisher appreciate the business methods
and social customs of the American that before en-
tering his son into business he is in not a few cases
sending him over here to see America first.
America is looking on all this with amusement
and pride. It has taken the conservative inhabi-
tants of the sea-girt isle a long time to see much in
American life other thin superficiality and sciolism,
but that they are now "coming rdund" can hardly'
be doubted. The presence of our doughboys in
England and the way America delivered the goods
during the. war are perhaps the chief reasons for
this change in opinon. And, while Americans cer-
tainly would not like to see their British cousins
adopt any of their bad tricks still would it not give
satisfaction and relief to watch the sons of Albion
learn how to tell a good jotke right?

To you I sing! -Austin Dobson.
Far more blessed than "Mesopo-
tamia," the word "Mid-Victorian"
evokes the picture of perfect female
propriety. Then simple innocence and
innocent simplicity characterized the
English girl. Unsophicticated, una-
dorned, shrinking, apart, she was al-
ways standing with reluctant feet
where, and so forth, as in the poem.
Why must The Saturday Review
snatch the reverend periwig from the
poll of Mid-Victorian virtue? That
journal reprints an article on "The
Girls of the Period" that appeared in
1868. It was written by Mrs. E. Lynn
Linton, a clever and once well-known
novelist and essayist, a vigorous
journalist,' She laments the vanish-
ing of "the fair young English girl of
the past." Gaze and shudder at that
celestial damsel's shameless succes-

plenty -of fun and luxury; and whose
dress is the object of such thought and

girl of the period has done away with
such moral muffishness as considera-
tion for others, or regard for counsel'
and rebuke. . . . If a sensible fash-
ion lifts a gown out of the mud, she
raises hers midway to her knee. . .

Dueto urShort Story Contest! I.!
Due to our recent success in obtainig a method
for removing the crane from the Clements library,
we. have decided to aid the rhetoric department in
conducting a short story contest. We believe that
the failure of the one conducted by Chimes was
caused by the fact that the reward was too small.
Therefore we are offering to the winner the Presi-
dency of Hill Auditorium. But before asking for
manuscripts, we would like some suggestions as to
the rules which are to govern the competition. Send
yours in so that a volume can be compiled. The fol-
lowing ones will probable be used.
Write on only two sides of each sheet.
Have no more than 250 or less than 247 words
in the story.
