Toques Worn Since
Innovation In 1907
Since 1907 the present class toques
have been worn. At that time .the
Student council made several changes
in the style toques worn but since
then no changes have been made. At
that time a rush order was sent to
the factory and with the toques came
impassioned mesages for the wearers
written by the girls who worked in
the factory.
The yarn caps of the sophomores,
juniors, and seniors, all have a sym-
bolical signficance. Of the three, the
sophomores are farthest from the true
college spirit but the white band shows
they are approaching the spirit of the
class above them. Likewise the blue
band on the junior toque shows their
near approach to the true spirit shown
by the seniors and typified in the true
blue of their headwear. This band is
two thirds of the way up the cap
which for the sophomores is maroon,
for the juniors, white, and blue for
the seniors. The pom for the toques
is the color of the body of the cap.
Freshmen are required to wear a grey
cap with a different colored tassel for
each department. The post graduate's
toque has the lower half of the body

white and the upper half navy, blue
with a white porn.
Those who have worn four class
toquesor who have been allowed their
senior credits by the University may
wear the post graduate toque.
The Student Council is anxious that
everyone should wear his class toque
and keep up this old Michigan tradi-
tion.
FARRELL, IMMEL
SPEAK AT SMOKER
Coach Stephen J. Farrell, Varsity
track mentor, and Prof. Ray K. Im-
mel, of the oratory department, were
the principle speakers at the junior
lit smoker held Tuesday night at the
Union.
Professor Immel characterized the
spirit of the University as that of a
man who had passed through the peri-
od of youth and had not settled down
to the "steady pull" that leads to
greater things.
Coach Farrell spoke about .the
track prospects and urged that men
with abilities should be out for the
sport.
Music for the meeting was furnish-
ed by Tommy Thomas' orchestra.
Cider and doughnuts were served, and
a general get-together and sing was
held after the speeches.

31ind Student Would Gladly Take
Crippled Knee For Football Letter

"I'd just as soon have a crippled
knee for life if I could have a foot-
ball letter from the University," says
Ned H. Smith, '25, a blind student en-
rolled in the literary college. "The
game has always been the most inter-
esting to me. I prefer it to baseball'
and believe that ,it will in time be-
come the national game.
"I attend all the.games with friends:
who explain all the plays to me and
in all probability follow the game
closer that way than many who go
but give only divided attention to it.
I lost out on the Ohio State game,
I forgot to send in for my tickets for
the game. It was a freshman trick,
of course, and I heard plenty about
it. So I spent the day in Detroit at
my home. I made up by walking a
mile for the paper that night to get
the news that Michigan was beaten."
Speaking of his work in the Uni-
versity, Smith said, "It is my greatest
ambition to study medicine. I have
always wanted to be a doctor, but
this fall when I registered I was told
that although I may be capable of
doing the work, they couldn't recom-

mend me.

I would like to try at an-

other school of medicine but I like
Michigan too well."
Smith gets around without a cane
and goes everywhere by himself. He
says he is conscious of passing a tree
{or any stationary object of the sort.
In explaining this ability he said,
"Some people blame it on a 'sixth
sense,' which is of course, nonsense.
It is merely that in passing an ob-
ject the sound from that side is tem-
porarily deadened." Blindness seems
to be no handicap even in keeping
down a fractious romomate. It seems
that a few nights ago Smith found it
necessary to show his roommate his
proper place and according to the
other men in the house he did it very
neatly.
