THE GRQWING PAINS CEASE

egiste' when classes opened Tuesday.

.t in each which differentiates one such in-
n from another as pointedly perhaps as the
sity may be distinguished from the humdrum
es of outside life. Little ceremonies, insig-
t in themselves, which were originally in-
ted by our ancestral colleagues, and perpet-
by their successors, have come down to the
: day with a force and color so intensified by
years of observance that their life bids fair
>lve the heart of University spirit, and their
lance to mark the interest of the student body
niversity which is uniquely Michigan.
iout these ceremonies, landmarks, and cus-
n alumnus might experience an equal pleas-
ure in Visiting another university as in returning to
his own Alma Mater, provided that he cares to see
one at all. Spirit is the core of University alle-
giance; and spirit is engendered not merely through
four years of residence at Ann Arbor, but through
a full knowledge of and a wholehearted respect for
the traditions which have come down to us from
preceding generations of college men.
Tonight the Student council has arranged for an
assembly of the student body, the fourth annual
one of its kind, in Hill auditorium, where newcom-
ers to the University will be told and the old-tim-
ers refreshed upon the traditions of our campus.
Traditions are vital to Michigan. If it is the will
of the present student body to preserve Michigan
as distinctly herself, a university of character, Hill
auditorium should be packed to the doors this
Above this University hangs a cloud, full of
warning. To the unitiated and non-observant it
lacks meaning. Partially they may sense it, but
they have no acute consciousness of its being. It
evolves in a definite shape, and with a pointed mean-
ing - similar to the handwriting on the wall - to
those who will observe. It says - Freshman!
Don't fizzle out, by being a non-entity. If you
must be stupid, be so bad that you're noticeable.
Don't start a cross-draft by bolting and cutting to
play golf - even of the intriguing foreign variety.
You'll go out. Don't blow yourself out by trying to
do everything too hard. Be as natural and easy
as you can, too much oxygen is as bad for a deli-
cate flame as a lack of it. And though you shrink
from the admission, you are all pretty delicate
Don't be spineless, get up and reserve sufficient
pressure to keep going against the little puffs of
wind that come along, such as mere initiations, fool
upper classmen, young and arrogant instructors and

goblin is going to arise from the earth and sud-
denly extinguish you.

? REGULATION OF LABOR SUPPLY
? With the normal average number of unemployed
workers in the United States placed 'at approxi-
mately one million, the latest official estimate of
5,700,000 ablebodied persons out of work is a
matter of grave concern to all thoughtful citizens.
The situation is more damaging than even the start-
ling comparison of figures would suggest, for the
normal million includes a large number of the
shiftless and unfit, whereas the present condition
includes experienced labor existing in an unprodiic-
tive state. This labor situation, suddenly becoming
serious enough to permit such demonstrations as
the "auction block" scenes in Boston, has become
the subject of special treatment by municipal, state,.
and federal authorities, but it was the last resort
when President Harding was appealed to and he in
turn appointed a special commission to investi-
It is the aim of this special commission to inaug-
urate an emergency program for immediate re-
lief, which might even include a federal employ-
ment bureau to work in conjunction with state and
local agencies. But in addition the work of the
commission should be to devise ,means for pre-
venting such an extreme situation to exist in the
future. The present opportunity to take steps in .
that direction should not be overlooked.
