branch of athletics, or rather in what-
ever single sport, the freshman may,
be interested. The only compulsion
invloved is required participation in
some form of sport, beyond that the
entire matter is at the students choos-
ing. I do not deny the advantages of
such a system, -rather do I emphati-
cally assert the many disadvantages.
Physical education, as offered here
and at other universities, is after all
physical "education", not physical
recreation. Students may be best
taught by interesting them in the
courses which they are to pursue, but
is there any reason why this should
be the primary factor in determining
the nature of the instruction? Does

ry, when they never broke up until the
available capital was all in the hands
of one greedy octopus, when card
decks were carefully watched for the;
presence of five aces, and even when

of any detected suspic ous actions.
The nresence of alcoholic stimulationj
was an indispensable concomitant, in
order that the heart should never
fail in the stupendous bluffing whichl
was the prime necessity ofsuccess at
poker. Religious and other social-
uplift organizations placed a vehe-
ment ban on the use of cards in gen-
eral as being implements of wrong
which brought out the worst in a fel-
low and gave him too convenient an
opportunity to satisfy Adam's curse
and take achance.
But now the use of cards has ceased
to be synonymous with moral degen-
eracy. Indeed cards have come to be'
a favorite mental recreation of the1
most moral and intellectual of peo-
ple. Games have emerged out of the
mathematical possibilities of fifty-two1
graduated pieces of paper which nev-

Bridge now is almost universally in
vogue; it still presents probleis
enough to insure it relative perman-

Cards are more popular now than
ever befogein their history. To be a'
good bridge player is almost a requi-

inns. The popularity of bridge at
Michigan has developed by leaps and
bounds in the last two years. No
longer does money have to be a fac-
tor in the interest of a game; mental
competition has superseded a mer-
cenary wheel of chance. Smoke-fill-
ed rooms and electrified atmosphere
have given place to the quiet refine-
ment of a cordial foursome. A grati-
fying change!
According to the Detroit Saturday
Night the example for whirlwind love
affairs was set by Washington, who
met, wooed, and won Martha Curtis
in a day. As always happens in the
case of great men, Washington has
been emulated in this regard by in-
numerable lovers of succeeding times
and also most musical comedies and
moving pictures.

Two opposing conceptions of George
Washington exist and will doubtless
be given expression in one form or
another today-as people unite all over
the nation to o homage to the fathert
of our country. One cherished by thel
many, and echoed and reechoed in:
pubhlic declamations, pictures him as
great in mind and body, a courageous
officer, and a superhuman executive.
The other conception directed by a!
few historians imkes Washington out
to have been an aristocratic politi-
cian whose intellect and ability was f
(Narfed by the master mindt of hist
t ime.'
It is quite possible that the latter
critics of Washington in their efforts
to s:et forth the entire truth do as,
great an injustice to him as his more
eulogistic ones. But regardless of this
fact a nation survives on its tradi-'
tions. It has been said that only a
nation can give a man - a soul, and
if' this is true it is because of the
patriotic traditions wihch endear him
to its people and institutions.
The George Washington whom the
Aierican people honor 'today will be
the one characterized in our grammar
school history books: the (fearles~s
leader, the able statesman, and the
true-hearted individual. And with due
respect to the opinion of certain mod-I
ern historians, this is probably the
only way in which most Americans
will ever be content to look upon
George Washington.
