Tucked away in Michigan during those days there
slept a modest community whose two central hubs
were not seriously bothered concerning regulation
of the traffic. Detroit's ship had not yet come in.
Some philanthropic soul, however, with a desire to
emancipate the slaving equine, came forth with a
horseless carriage, and after vainly seeking in an
Ohio city. to develop his invention, took advantage
of a progressive step on the part of Detroit and laid
there the foundation of what has since become one
of the world's largest industries. That speculative
plunge made by Detroit signalled the future pros-
perity of the city. Mushroom-like it grew, and within
twenty years, passed the million mark in population.
New York has also grown considerably during
those two decades, and in the course of time has in-
stituted many novelties and improvements imprac-
ticable in communities of smaller size. Meanwhile,
ever watching, as a growing child watches its more
worldly companion and patterns after him, Detroit
has kept an orb on the more sophisticated eastern
center for tips in city building.
Fruitful have been the results. New York has
its Ritz Carlton; Detroit has its Ritz, - less elab-
orate, to be sure, but bearing practically the same
name. Fifth avenue has its busses; ditto for Wood-
ward. - Gotham boasts her unexcelled traffic sys-
tem; and the Wolverine metropolis has fashione
a satisfactory one on the Gotham principle. Thus
has Detroit benefited from the guiding influence of
its elder sister.
But the past is no more. The present finds the
auto city throwing off its "follow the leader" shac-
kles and stepping into the lead. It is actually doing
something not yet done in New York, - trying
out a new conveyance, the trackless trolley.
Oh shades of green-eyed envy! Pangs of a fallen
idol! What will New York say, - Gotham with all
her subways and elevated's-, what will she say on
glancing westward and beholding the trackless trol-
ley rambling nonchalantly down the thoroughfares
A foreigner once said to a friend, "You Ameri-
cans are always in such a hurry. You hurry to
rise, you hurry to eat, you hurry to work, you, hurry
honie, you hurry to bed."
There is reason for America's hurry.
There is work to be done. Lots of it. There are
bridges to build, railways to lay out, skyscrapers to
erect, mammoth corporations to extend and de-

with nobility and class strife.
In America the hampered worker of other lands
finds his future - his opportunity.
With so much to do, is it to be wondered that

In ancient Greece a wreath of laurels was placed
upon the head of him who had emerged winner in
the revered Olympian contests. The wreath had in
itself no intrinsic value. It was the recognition of
accomplishment, of achievement through persever-
ance; and despite its negligible worth, the wreath
was the most envied trophy that any man could
Tonight in Hill auditorium letters will be awarded
to the men of Michigan who have earned them in
athletic pursuits. Merely the handing out of cloth
emblems in the form of an "M" or an "AMA" -
upon the surface a most unostentatious and unex-
citing ceremony - and yet Michigan's student body
has been invited to witness it, prominent men have
been obtained to talk in connection with it, and an
evening's entertainment has been built around it. -
Athlete of Greece. Athlete of Michigan. The
letter. The wreath. Symbols only, of appreciation
and work well done.
TALK IT UP AT HOME
This year the Union opera, "Make It for Two",
acclaimed by all who have seen it, as one of the
best that has ever been produced, takes a longer
and more extensive trip than has any previous
Mimes production. This is an indication of the
growth in popularity of Michigan dramatic efforts,
since it is the alumni in the various cities which the
opera will visit this year who have asked that per-
formances be held in the places which are new to
The student whose home is in one of the cities in-
cluded in the "Make It for Two" road tour may
aid in the success of the opera by "talking it up".
A few words of praise - and surely all who saw
it will admit that it is deserving of praise - to the
alumni and to friends will go a long way toward
aiding Mimes in its effort to make the show as suc-

She watched me as I left the house,
A scornful smile upon her face;
With flashing eve she bade me ne'er
Again approach the dear old place.
How changed the time ! How dreary now!
And yet but two months' days are o'er;
But we who were the best of friends
Are enemies forevermore.
So peacefully beneath her roof
The evening's we two might have spent;
Yes, even now it might be thus
If I could but have paid my rent.

Tell the people at home about the wonderful
songs, and don't forget to tell the alumni that "The
Victors" brings the performance to a close, because
the mere mention of that name will cause any Mich-
igan man, graduate or undergraduate, to want to
walk a mile or more to hear it. Tell them about the
marvelous scenery, the costumes that would put
Paris style critics to shame, the "girls" of the
chorus that rival the "Follies", the dancing that
would bring contracts from many Broadway book-
ing agents. Tell them all this, and all the rest of
the good things you know about the opera - and by
so doing, you can be of service not only to the
Union and Mimes, but, also to the alumni at home,
because they will appreciate this advance informa-
tion. Talk up "Make It for Two" at home !
