Learning to adapt himself to new
or, unusual circumstances is one of
the many useful things, aside fromj
knowledge obtained by study, that a
student gains from his college career.
When a Utuident comes to college he
finds himself in a "city of students."
He must adapt himself to his new sur-
roundings; he must be able to "fit in" l
where-ver he goes, or he will not beE

is often concomitant with poor health.
But the difficulty with attempting
to be dogmatic on such a subject is
that there are so many factors which
influence a man's mental and physi-.
cal make-up outside of the mere pos-
session of a good memory or a poor
one. Unless the physician referred
to is able to present more evidence to
substantiate his statements than is
available at present, the only conclu-
sion that can be arrived at is that,
other things being equal, the posses-
sion of a poor memory is not a handi-
cap to success. Nothing has beenj
advanced so far to cause the person
with a good memory a very great
amount of concern as to his physical
or mental welfare.
A SAFETY MEASURE
Troffic deaths in Detroit should de-
cline materially due to the action of
the city council which unanimously
approved the act to the effect that
the "boulevard stop" system shouldI
be instituted. The bill will in all
probability pass finally on next Tues-
day and will became effective a week
later. This traffic system has been
used. with considerable success InI

The traffic death list has been in-f
creasing steadily in Detroit and the
present system of regulation seems
inadequate to cope with the situation.;
Affairs hiave reached such a bad state
that a person feels much safer in an
auto than out of one. The pedestrian
has certain rights, but since they are
continually infringed upon by. the,
autoist it is necessary that the city
officials tack action to make walking

Apprpaches slowly to the spot

usual circumstances the man who can;
adapt himself, can manage and make
the best of things, is the one who
comes out on top.
If the student, after coming to col-
lege, affiliates with an organization,
he will here learn another lesson of
adaptability. Adapting himself to the
ideas of a group may not seem eas3l
at first. Adapting himself to the. cir-
cumstances of having a roommate
who borrows shirts and ties and shoes,j
may not be pleasant, but is excellent
training for the man who must later
in. life, outside-of college, adapt him-
self to far more serious circumstances.
This question of adaptability is al-
most an art. Yet it is an art which
can be cultivated, and there is little'
better place in which to learn adapta-
bility than in college. The student who
does not learn this is often dissatis-
fied in college and quite often in after-

It has been said that the most pre-
cious gift of the gods is Initiative-!
the ability to start things and keepI

ways waiting for omething to turn
up, for something to happen. We lack'
the knack of following the dictates of
our heart and making things happen
ourselves. We shift responsibility forI
amusement to the next man.
In the realm of business, initiative;
that creates is rewarded with higher
wages. On all sides we hear the call
for those people who can busy them-
selves in new ways to reach new ends.
History of mankind is generous
with examples of rich men who were
never destined to be happy, for they
had nothing-to hope for or to strive
after. They lhad 'never experienced
the joy that 'comes from accomplish-

not come from the impre-sire books

plication are the things that count.

CURE BY SATIETY
(New York Times)
A veteran dramatic critic, the late
William Winter, once said that he
was not so much worried by indecency
on the stage as by stupidity. Hisj
point was that indecency itself by too
much repition becomes stupid. A
similar j dgment might be passed on,
the run of current novels exploiting
sex. An old English reviewer corn-
Slair.s in a r'n cient article that the
thing is getting to be "a horribie
bore." He says that he scarcely meets
a person who doesn't think that the
novelists are overdoing it. At the be-
inning it w as =r facile path to no-1
toriety, and iin many cases it seemo'l
o pay vell. But the notoriety col'1i
wears thin and gets to be stale, while
the (i'-inmercial proeit in depictinf

Jjeconiing highly dubious. The public

At first the new departure w s d
'ended partly as art, but more is
audacity. But in time the art appears
too short and easy, and the apdacity
degenerates into mere bravado. Be-
sides. dhe limits have long 'sirce been
reached beyond which the most au-
dacio-s cannot venture wihout
danger of falling into the nands of
the pl!"ie. Originally, it wa- alse
mainiained that novels built arourd .
