read, he thought, and, through his pen, he virtually
controlled.
But his were the days of comparatively small pa-
pers and of personal editorial supervision in the
press rooms. How different now!l With our great
metropolitan publications, each catering to tens and
hundreds of thousands of patrons and possessing
inconceivably huge organizations, the great editor
ha's become a mere manager, while his opinions,
or rather the opinions of the corporation over him,
are voiced second-handedly through countless busy-
brained assistants.
We are now embarked fully upon the "corpora
tion" age of journalism for "Marse Henry" has car-
red the personal touch away with him.
EVOLUTION
Perhaps the greatest question in academic circles
during the nineteenth century was the question of
evolution. The greatest minds of the day such as
Darwin, Wallace, Haeckel, Lamarck, and a host of
others spent their time and energy expounding and
substantiating the newly developed theory, while
the rest of theworld looked on with an incredulous
expresson and hotly debated the question pro and
con. Gradually, as the mass of proof became more
complete and convincing, the question of evolution
ceased to cause the immense amount of comment
it had formerly enjoyed, and many thinking people
came to accept the doctrine as fundamentally
sound.
In spite of the preponderance of proof in favor
of the theory of organic evolution and the exha'is-
tive research1s made in the subject, some people
still fail to consider its possibilities. This class is
not confined to the uneducated, but even prevails to
a large degree among people who consider them-
selves well-informed. It exists in universities but
it is a fact to be noted with satisfaction that inter-
est in the subects is growing and substantial at the
centers of higher learning. At present there are
at least two courses in the University which. deal
exclusively with organic evolution. During the past
two years the attendance in them has more than
doubled.
The average student has some vague idea in re-
gard to evolution ,but when called upon to give some
explanation for his ideas he is helpless. It is to do
away with this sort of ignorance and to cause a lit-
tle deeper thinking on this subject that courses in
evolution are given. Nothing could be more in-
t-nsely interesting or educational than the clarifying
of the development of life and the tracing of man's
ancestry, according to this theory, and undoubtedly
life will have a little broader significance to those
who make it a point to investigate this most fas-
cinating subject.
Judging from the appearance of the new Michi-
gan auto licenses it looks as if the state officials re-
solved to make rear lights unnecessary.

THE HOME STRETCH
Somebody has said, "Life is just one d va-
cation after another", referring, of course, to col-
lege life. And so, after two weeks of blessed peace
and possibly hilariousness, we find ourselves re-
planted suddenly in this vale of blue books, to pre-
pare for the final clash.
That clash is only a little bit over three weeks
away. It appears that we have returned just in
time. We have spent some fourteen days or more
in collecting our senses, or in spending our ener-
gies riotously; and we are now here for the sole
purpose of rounding off the edges of our courses,
of taking the final wild swing at that intellectual
curve that has been tantalizing us this whole inn-
ing, and establishing our season's batting average
by the simple expedient of writing a few examina-
tions.
But what are we doing for our country? How will
we assemble for the pen-and-ink argument? The
Grind will continue to get squint-eyed over his fine
print - that is to be expected. The Sensible Gentle-
man will no doubt spend a little time now and then
reviewing, will see to it early that he possesses a
good knowledge of each of his courses, and, when
the time of tribulation tmnally arrives, will be able
to rest and play in comparative peace, after a cur-
sory re-hash of the fundamentals, with a full and
comfortablerrealization that he prepared himself
while the preparing time was at hand.
But Mr. Average Student - if he lives true to
'form, he unquestionably will play from now un-
till the first bell rings, wnen he will suddenly be
brought to attention with a start and a sickening
sense of dread, will snatch his books and begin tt
pummel his brain and exhaust his physical self with
lack of sleep, until, wth the last gong and the con}
mencement of the final test, his poor head will be ii}
nothing but a glorious whirl of disjointed and ap-
parently unrelated facts. He may pass his exami
inations, but it won't be entirely his fault if he does.
We wonder how many Mr. Average Students
there are on the campus this year.
THE PASSING OF THE OLD SCHOOL
Henry Watterson, long known in American jour-
nalism for his strong, often violent, likes and de-
likes, his vigorous style and his powerful editorial
articles, died just three days before Christmas at
Jacksonville, Florida. The press undoubtedly will
not soon forget him, for he was a man who built for
himself the foundation for a long and enduring rec-
ord, despite the fact that his direct leadership passed
into decay some time ago.
For "Marse Henry" took with him the age of
"personal" journalism. He belonged to the time of
Dana and Greeley more than to the present day ; he
was one of those old-time editors whose personal
self was made known to his readers through the
columns of his paper, and whose word and opin-
ion called to them with the voice of authority. He

We agree with the far West that California has

matter with it.

The Prospect for 1922
With events of the coming month casting their
shadows ahead, it might be well to remember that
immortal expression of Shelley's "O Wind, if win-
ter comes, can spring be far behind?"
But it looks as if we're going to have to go
through an awful lot of winter to get to a little
spring.
