This tendency to overestimate the value of for-
eign goods was curtailed to a certain extent during
the war when America was forced to manufacture
-commodities which she had previously depended
upon foreign nations to supply. But it has again
cropped up and seems to be as much in evidence
as ever. This superficial conception of the magni-
fied greatness of anything of foreign origin ought in
justice to our own nation be suppressed. It isn't
that the luxuries produced at home are superior to
those of the rest of the world. To some extent,
however, the war has proved that they are on a
par with them, a condition which demonstrates the
lack of foundation for this time worn conception.
Let us in all instances give foreigners and for-
eign nations their just dues. In many fields they
have advanced further than we have. But on the
other hand the tendency should be to get away from
the old theory that anything foreign is to be prized
more highly' than that which- is of equal caliber but
PASSING THE BUCK
Years ago, so the Bible tells us, Cain in a fit of
uncontrollable passion, killed his brother Abel.
When it was noticed that Abel had disappeared, as
the story goes, Cain was asked if he knew where
his brother was. With a sullen scowl on his face,
and his eyes flaming with indignant anger, he re-
plied, "Am I my brother's keeper?"
This is an incident known to everyone today, but
it has a peculiar significance, for by scratching be-
neath the surface can be found in the heart of that
remark the beginning of the good old game of
"Passing the Buck". Since the time of this tale,
whenever something has gone wrong, the respon-
sible ones, if they belonged to this cult, have refused
to bear the brunt of the blame and have tried to
pass it on. So today, if a student fails in an ex-
amination, he may write home that the fault was
not his own - the instructor's inefficiency being at
fault. And a similar line of reasoning may be used
to explain other failures.
"Buck-passers" are the future politicians who
will end up as lobbyists, with their continual ten-
denty to permit the other fellow to shoulder the
blame always serving to keep them from advancing
higher. The "buck-passer's" chances in life are
excellent - for being a non-entity. If a man has
done something wrong, and realizes it, the best
plan would seem to be to own up to the fact instead
of "getting out from under" at some innocent

Trying hard to look so know-ed.

WHAT WE WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
Not satisfied with turning Joe Parker's Catalpa
Inn into a tea room, and thereby taking away much
of the joy of home-coming days and class reunions,
the city fathers seem to have decided that our cup
of joy was not yet filled to the brim, and that they
could best benefit the helpless student by setting the
clocks ahead another hour. Ah, woe ! That word
benefit reminds one too much of a Big-Ben.
Had the worthy paters only realized the effects
of their altruistically intended action! They have
made Ann Arbor life night life, which may please
Broadway revelers, but which is far from pleasing
to those who have the daily eight o'clocks (drat
'em!). Again, whereas before when one ended his
night's slumber at seven or thereabouts, he used to
pull down the shades to keep out the almost blind-
ing sunlight, he must now wear an eye shade to
keep out the moonlight. Thirdly, unless the sun de-
cides to come out a little earlier, with the prompting
of our previously mentioned city fathers, the Uni-
versity authorities will have to change the cata-
logues to read "All students attending eight o'clock '
classes are to be classified in the newly created
Night Sessions department." There is more to be
,said, but sufficient unto the day, etc.
Christmas is coming, and many of us will at-
tempt to beguile old St. Nick into filling our hose
with the innermost desires of our hearts. But the
earnest prayer of many. an eight-o'clock-suffering
student will be in the form of a little note hung
over the chimney on Christmas eve reading some-
what as follows, "Dear Nick, I don't want any
books or neckties, but for the love of Pete, tell
those Ann Arbor legislators to give us our old time
back! 'Attaboy. Thanks."
THAT "IMPORTED" LABEL
One of the distinguished foreign delegates to the
Conference on the Limitation of Armaments, who
was received with wide acclaim in this country, at-
tended a banquet given in his honor in Washington
last week. At this occasion a person of far less
importance is reported to have remarked with keen
disappointment that the visitor was in all outward
appearances a mere man. This may be taken as an
example of the typical American reverence of for-
eigners and foreign things, extending beyond all
bonds of politeness and disrespect for merits.
But this worship of the exotic is not confined to
statesmen, musicians, diplomats, -or authors. It is
also characteristic of our attitude towards the va-
rious luxuries and in some cases necessities. For
years French perfumes and cosmetics have been
the recognized standard in this country, and those
produced by American manufacturers scorned by
anyone who is at all fastidious. Jobbers have long
known the value of a foreign trademark in a man's
hat or suit as designating the commodity to be worth
much more than if it bore the stamp of a domestic
concern. From cigarettes to automobiles any arti-
cle used or worn by the individual seems to he n-

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
