is done, the better it will be for all of the students
and fr the University as a whole.
Or animation of the upperclass advisers is now
under way at the Union, looking forward to carry-
ing on this work in the fall. It is essential that the
corps of advisers be 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 nake 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 .nstructed to assume their duties as
mentors next fall.
- PULL ACROSS THE OCEAN
The well-known saw has it. "You can't teach old
'dogs tiew tricks", but if reports of those 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-
Bond Street is daily taking on the appearance and
atmosphere of Broadway and the Strand is begin-
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'clock cricket match, and his santer 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 than superficiality and sciolism,
but that they are now "coming round" can hardly
be doubted. The presence of our doughboys in
England and the way America delivered the goods
.during the war ae 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 jokearight?
THE MICHIGAN DAILY staff of "B. M. 0.
Q.'s" is scheduled to meet a team from the gar-
goyle, gargyle, gargle, - or however-you-spell-it,-
at nine o'clock this morning. THE DAILY'S ex-

will appear on the street at eight fifteen this mo-n-
Michigan's position this year in spring athletics
hangs in the balance today as her track team meets

in the first of a week of battles on the road.

The girl of the period is a creature
who dyes her hair and paints her face
as the first articles of her personal
religion; whose sole idea of life is
plenty of fun and luxury; and whose
dress is the object of such thought and
intellect as she possesses. . . The
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.

SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1922
It. was in his own words a "painful step" for
'iof. John C. Parker, head of the department of
lectrical engineering, to resign his position on the
aculty of his "very much loved Alma Mater".
'rofessor Parker goes, 'o;ever, from a high po-
ition in the field of education to an equally high
ost in the field of commerce. i
Not only does Pr ofessor Parker stand among
he leaders' in his profession, but he has through
ustiiting service and able efficiency brought the
Iectrical engineering department of the University
y a ranking place among the other such depart-
rents throughout the country. With his departure
Michigan will sustain. a genuine loss not only in
eing deprived of oie who has done so. much to
stablish the prestige of his institution, but also in

Short Story Contest ! ! !
Due to our recent success in obtaining 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.
