players as well, have learned a big lesson. The
child has been duly spanked; and frequently the
punishment is all the more impressive because it
has been adminstered by such a firm and powerful
arm as that of judge Landis'. The commissioner,
moreover, shows no signs of relenting in his strict
adherence to rules. A few more such decisions as
that passed upon the activities of our friend Ruth,
and the big leagues ought to show a great gain in
virtue, through the increased respect of players for
simple law and order.
AN EDITORIAL CONTEST
One of the yearly activities of Pi Delta Epsilon,
national honorary journalistic fraternity, is to spon-
sor a nation-wide editorial contest in which any
undergraduate of a college or university is eligible
to compete. The purpose of the present contest is
to disprove the popular theory that a literary course
is a waste of valuable time, and the title of each
editorial submitted must be "The Practical Value of
a Fine Arts Education." The subject is one of in-
terest to college men in general and should be re-
ceived enthusiastically here and elsewhere.
The present contest is being conducted both lo-,
cally and nationally. Each editorial submitted must
be not more than 500 words in length and must be
passed upon by a committee of faculty men to be
appointed by the local chapter of the fraternity.
The writer of the best editorial will reveive a prize
and be privileged to enter his manuscript in the na-
tional contest. A committee of well known newspa-
per men will act as the final judges. The three win-
ners in the national contest will receive the Pi Delta
Epsilon gold medals. The contests are open to
everyone, but close February 15.
Indications are that the competition will be keen
and anyone who receives a prize or a medal may
feel that he has accomplished something. It is
hoped the journalistic*talent on the campus will get
busy so that Michigan may be well represented.
Every community in the country has its gossips -
persons who delight in spreading unpleasant rumors
about their neighbors, regardless of whether these
reports are true or not. The University of Michi-
gan is no exception to the rule. Rumors' are con-
stantly circulating that such and such a professor
or such and such a student did so and so.
Whether true or false - and the majority of them
are false - these remarks, made behind the back of
the accused, do absolutely no good and in many in-
stances do positive injury. One of this nation's
richest men, when questioned recently about cer-
tain reports that were circulating about him, said
that he would rather lose every cent he possessed
than to have such fallacious gossip spread. While
they may help same conversation impressive, un-
true bits of gossip serve no one and may do a great
deal of harm.

THE FOOTBALL "BUST"
Today is a big day in Detroit, a day of impor-
tance and interest to our alumni in that city and to
every member of the student body, for on it will
be held the annual football "bust" which the De-
roit Alumni flub gives in honor of the team and
r. ,coaches.. The affair today, however, has a more
distinct significance than those of former years, on
this occasion students and alumni will unite to honor
Professor Wenley, in the celebration of his twenty-
fifth anniversary of service in behalf of Michigan
and all her interests, athletic as well as academic.
Coach Yost, "Duke" Dunne, Captain-elect Gobel,
and Professor Wenley will speak, and the Varsity
band in full force, together with a squad of cheer
leaders, will be on hand to stir things up with "The
X Victors" and "Varsity".
The affair is planned by the alumni, but it is
urged that every student who can possibly attend
..should be present, as arrangements have been made
for a monster meeting. There will be pep and
snap a-plenty, cheers that will bring back memories
of the famous Illinois pep meeting this fall, and
music by that band of bands, all combinng to make
the event one that will live long in the memories of
all who attend.
The football season is over, but the student body
has this last opportunity of uniting with the alumni
to show their appreciation of the "team's brilliant
record this year. So Be There!
BARRING THE SWAT KING
"Babe" Ruth, consistent smasher of bats and
damager of baseballs, has been put in the corner to
kick his toes impatiently against the wall until May
20, 1922. This is only part of the sentence imposed
upon him by Baseball Commissioner K. M. Landis,
because of his post-season playing jaunt - taken
against orders. The remainder of the penalty con-
sists merely of Ruth's forfeiture of his own portion
of the World series cash, amounting to $3,362.26.
In spite of the fact that Judge Landis' decision
does not bar him from practice or exhibition
games, it is decidedly improbable that the sentence
imposed will be taken any too lightly by the erst-
while prince of wallopers. Babe apparently thought
he could play post season games without being pun-
ished for an infraction of the rules; for it is a cu-
rious fact that, when a man rises to the heights in
some such realm as baseball, he is very apt to feel
that "the king can do no wrong", and to govern him-
self entirely as he sees fit. But Babe will pay for
his lordly attitude for five months and more to
Organized baseball tok a definite step towara
higher ideals and better discipline among players
when it appointed Judge Landis as its national com-
missioner, and right then things began to happen.
Great was the howl which arose when he took his
post. "It will ruin baseball!" was the cry. Far from
ruining baseball, however, the commissioner has ex-
erted a most calming influence over the whole na-

O Tempora! O Mores!
I am a poet;
I treat all verse rough.
This might be an epic
But I've said quite enough
- - - - - - - - - - - - 7 - - - - - - - - - - - -
This verse has been selected for publication by us
because it shows genius. It contains that element
so essential to true art - suggestiveness - the
leaving of something unsaid.
"Already" may be said to rhyme with a hypothet-
ical word somewhere in space, say at the point
where parallel lines meet (we know you'll never
go that far to look for it). Of course, holding such
an unstable position in the ether, the word that
rhymes with "already" can scarcely be "steady".
Quoth Eppie Taff:
Here rest the bones
Of Skipper Klopp,
His boat went under,
And he was on top.
Little Tommy had a hobby
At the tnder age of four,
And his hobby was a horsey
Which he rode upon the floor.
Tommy later came to college,
Still his hobby was a horse;
This he used to great advantage
Trotting through his Latin course.
