THE CRUCIAL TEST
Today there face each other on the field of bat-
tle two of the strongest teams in the Western
Conference, Michigan and Wisconsin, on the lat-
ter's own field. Michigan has primed herself dur-
ing the past two weeks for this encounter, for it
was with a full realization of the power of the op-
ponents and the importance of this contest that
Coach Yost set to work to prepare for today's
game. It is without exaggeration the crucial test
of the year for Michigan, and by far the hardest
struggle of the entire schedule.
Here in Ann Arbor, and all over the country,
wherever Michigan alumni or supporters are to be
found, excitement is at a high pitch as the time
for the battle draws near, and the result remains
but a few hours' distant. Everyone is pulling, and
pulling strong, for a Michigan victory. Sit tight,
pray for victory, and cheer the team. LET'S GO
ATTEND THAT SMOKER
To those who left last night for Madison for the
Michigan-Wisconsin game, the week end will be one
full of excitement and interest. But, although it
is certain that every member of the student body
would have desired to make the trip to Wisconsin,
only a small percentage went, and the majority
now find themselves in Ann Arbor with no event
of special interest except the report of the game as
it comes over the telegraph wires. Just like an
oasis on the desert, there looms up a most pleas-
ing sign of relief in the form of the smoker which
is being given this afternoon under the auspices of
the Detroit Alumni association of the University.
These smokers have always been well attended by
students from Ann Arbor in previous years, and
their success as pep-instilling mediums and as sub-
stitutes for actual presence at the scene of the
game has been eyidenced by their continued rise in
popularity. The smoker today will in every way
resemble a miniature mass meeting, with cheer lead-
ers and entertainers, and the additional features of
smokes and drinks (a la Volstead, of course), and
play-by-play reports of the game, which will be re-
ceived on a leasedwire direct from the scene of ac-
tion at Madison.
The alumni have extended a general invitation to
the student body to attend, and surely no better
way of getting the reports of the game and at the
same time adding some spice to a rather unevent-
ful week-end than this could be suggested. There'll
be pep from the time the doors open until the final
staccato clicks of the telegraph announce the Wol-
verine victory over the Cardinals, and the smoker
will afford a great opportunity for undergraduates
to observe how alumni can celebrate when they
have sufficient cause.
ART - FOR WHOSE SAKE?
Chicago is a city which is noted for its windy
atmosphere, its resemblance to New York, and its
art exhibits. The first of these distinguishing marks
concerns only the residents of the city, while the
latter two are often of interest in the various parts
of the United States. At least, a certain event oc-
curred there last week which has caused Chicago's
city sisters and cousin villages sufficient food for
thought, and probably either some cause for laugh-
ter or more cause for chagrin.
Last week, Chicago held its annual art exhibit, on
which occasion connoisseurs and lovers of art jour-
neyed from distant points to view the creations of
master painters. Many of those paintings on exhi-
bition were genuine art, too, for the event was ac-
claimed a pronounced success by impartial critics
and unpartisan judges. That is it was a success
from all angles but one, and that one a rather se-
rious hindrance to the purpose of the exhibition.
Society buds, "debs", staid matrons, and ambitious
mothers with children of prospective marriageable
age, cluttered up the hallways and salons of the in-
stitute, hindering those who were present for the
purpose of viewing the exhibit. Mencken would
probably call these light minded, tea-drinking, cake-
eating, individuals nincompoops, and there is little
doubt that the appellation would be fully deserved.
The home is the place for tea-pouring parties,
and for the arrangement of marriage pacts surely
a cozy parlor, an enclosed automobile, or a bench
in the park are more suitable than an art exhibit for
securing the desired results. Europe would mock
America as young, indifferent, and incapable of se-
riously appreciating art, should the tale of the Chi-
cago institute be told across the Atlantic. The ac-
cusation we on this side of the ocean could deny
as untrue, but unless many of our well-meaning,
but unthinking citizens (of both sexes) realize that
an art exhibit is not merely an excuse for a purely
frivolous social gathering, Europe may, after all,
be justified in reaching such a conclusion.

The eye of one standing at a distance from a
man striking a building sees the blow before the
noise from it is communicated to the ear. It takes
but a slight stretch of the imagination to conceive of
a situation in which the ear may be detecting the
noise though the workman may be seen to have
ceased hammering, in which case one wishing to
act in unison with the worker would be entirely
misled if he relied only on the sound that reached
Something very similar to this has happened in
the passing of the recent resolution calling for the
removal of Coach Yost, at the recent meeting of
the Grand Rapids Alumni association. The action of
these graduates was taken at a time when all the ex-
cess steam arising after the Ohio game had been
dissipated as far as the Michigan student body was
concerned and the sane conclusion had been reached
that the time to raise the coaching question, if at
all, was after the season was over. When the step
was taken Michigan had come back in the Illinois
game and was bending all her forces, including the
spirit that has turned the tide in her favor in many
doubtful contests, toward a victory at Madison.
The whole undergraduate body was dominated by
one idea - beat Wisconsin!
With these as the circumstances, the Grand Rap-
ids men's move was worse than impulsively taking
part in agitation that would indirectly, but none the
less certainly, cut down our chances in the remain,
ing games of the season. It amounted to an at.
tempt to revive bodily a demoralizing issue already
buried. Fortunately this unthinking and ill-advised
action was immediately scored by other alumni in
the Valley City and by Detroit graduates. Even if
the resolution could be excused as an effort to as-
sist the man with the hammer, it can't be excused
when as a fact he had thought better and stopped
work before the assistance was tendered.
Business Is Business
Most people you will find in life
Possess a different style,
The druggist, asked how business is,
Will most times answer, "Vial."
The clean-up man who for his job
Draws very little pay,
Will answer with a cheery smile,.
"It's picking up, today."
Magicians are inclined to boast,
And if one ever blunders
To ask them just how business is,
It's always "Doing wonders."

while I was at an Oklahoma hotel this summer a
