START TONIGHT, '26
Tonight is Traditions Night. To the
\freshmen assembled in Hill auditor-
ium a member of the faculty, students,
and an alumnus will talk upon the
subject of Michigan, upon the Uni-
versity which the first year men have
just entered, and about which they
are. desirous of learning. They will
be told of the traditions of Michigan
as a whole, of loyalty to Michigan, and
of pride in Michigan.
If the freshman class is to become
a worth while factor in the University
life, it must learn this lesson of mem-
bership in the entire institution. But
along with that lesson should go an-
other one almost equally as impor-
tant, the lesson of pride in one's own
class as integral part of the whole
Practically all the troubles of fresh-
men in the past have come from a
lack of class pride. Certain men have
looked with disdain upon their fellow
claiasmates. They have consdered
themselves. too good to be frehmen,
that it was beneath their dignity to'
abide by the rules governing their
The freshman class is but one stage
In the four years of existence at col-
lege, a period through which all those
who wish to be graduated must pass.
In the regular'order of events a class
enters the University together, and
later on passes from it together. If a
man is proud of his class as a junior
or senior, why is he not just as proud
of its as a freshman? The same men-
hers comprise it, the same strength
or weaknesses characterize it.
If this feeling is harbored by fresh-
men, the rules they are asked to
obey will cease to seem mere attempts
upon the hart of sophomores and up-
perclassmen to humiliate them. On
the other hand they will take on
their real significance as a means for
stamping students as first year men,
so that they may be thrown into each
other's company constantly, and form
associations which will carry their
class throughout the University as a
RETURN OF ROBERT FROST
The announcement of the renewal
of the fellowship which will enable
Robert Frost to return to Ann Arbor
for- another year may well create en-
thusiasm among the faculty and stu-
dent body. It indicates the success-
ful fullfilment of the primary pur-
pose for which he was brought to the
University, that of causing students
to think and to understand life
through the eyes of a poet.
Last year certain eastern cynics
mocked the idea of a poet's being
paid $5,000 a year for doing nothing.
But being placed in the anomalous
position of working according to his
own mental dictates, Robert Frost
found doing nothing a harder task
than he had bargained for, one that oft-
en required fourteen hours a day of his
time. He quickly became the nucleus
around which the intellectual life of
the campus was built, and students
profited by personal contact with
But so many demands were placed
ution him by students and societies,
that he was unable to write a line of
poetry the entire year.
The fact should be remembered that
Robert Frost has been bestowed with
a scholarship by the University in or-
der that he may benefit by the influ-
ence of the campus surroundings as
well as because of the benefit which
the student body may derive from his
presence. For this reason, it might
P7e well this year to allow the poet a
little more time to devote to his
verse, the creation of which is after
all his highest and most useful pur-
pose in life.
The contemplated expansion of the
Commerce club and the proposed
change in its organization is of inter-
est to the large and ever-increasing
number of students who are following
the study of business administration.
The Commerce club aims to keep
students in touch with the business
world through the practice of bring-
ing in from time to time prominent
business men to address the club. In
addition it endeavors to place grad-
uates of the business administration
course in desirable positions where
they will have every opportunity to
Some sort of formal connection with
commerce clubs in other cities is be-
ing considered.' Such a union would
no doubt increase the ability of the
club to help students in a material
way. Unlike other students in the
technical schools, commercial stu-
dents have little lnowledge before
graduation as to where they will
work or what sort of work they
will do. Many have difficulty in find-
ing jobs with promising futures.
If'ethe icommerce clubs of various
cities were united in the cause of
placing the best trained men in the
most responsible positions, the re-
sults would benefit both industry and
A liberal allowance Is no longer a
prerequisite to following the teani
on its trips around the country. The
installation of an electric football
score board in Hill auditorium will
enable all Michigan students to watch
every football game which is played
on foreign fields. The board is a
miniature football field. It reports
the game, play by play a few seconds
after each maneuver is completed on
The' value of the board lies in two
things, the number of people who can
witness the contest without leaving
town, and the ease and speed with
which the machine itself can be oper-
ated. The apparatus is electrically
controlled, and one man only is need-
ed to manage it. The dimensions of
the piece are eleven by fifteen feet.
The ball is shown in motion, and the
audience is informed by a systen of
lights of the play used, the man who
carried the ball, and the number of
By permitting a larger number of
people to -witness contests, much of
the false rumor that circulates on
such occasions will be precluded. The
campus will be brought into a closer
relation with the team, and a better
spirit will result. No doubt, the team
itself will be benefited by the closer
link with the student body when it is
away from home. Considerable ap-
preciation is due to, the alumni of
Michigan who have enabled her to
own such an ingenious device.
A real athletic-hero who plays the
game on the square is not quickly
forgotten by the American public.
Christy Mathewson is perhaps the
greatest example of an athlete who
has commanded no end of admira-
tion, and whose praises are still
sung although he has 'not -played
baseball for several years.
There have been many excellent
pitchers who stand out in relief for
their athletic skill. But Mathewson
has remained the idol of idols among
baseball fans. They like his game-

up a lot of wise things to make the
incoming freshmen realize that he
has restriction. That's a good idea,
let's not let them think they are
"someone" so let's all combine and
make the class of '26 do as we did,
but in addition, why should a fresh-
man be allowed to wear "knickers" on
the campus? Why smoke cigars on
the campus? Why not make them
wear a red tie outside of their coat?
They would be more conspicuous
then and maybe they would realize
that they're only freshmen after all.
Suggestions to the Student council of
the above type.'ought to be appreciated
by them and acted upon. We don't
have to stick to past ideas entirely.
How about the. future freshmen, let's
make them stick to some of the things

doing away with that, so let's get up
something new. It may be humiliat-

Zut! How this heavy underwear
(The Daily Cardinal)
From the misty recesses of yester-
day has ben resurrected an ancient
ordinance whose few terse sentences
bid fair to stir the campus to its
very depths. Within this long lost
legislation lies a germ that may grow
and expand to a magnitude which will
hold the college world spellbound.
The Student Senate has discovered
a ruling that upon petition a class
meeting may be called and that at that
meeting candidates may be required
to appear before their fellows and
orate. Once again Music hall may
reverberate with the plaudits of the
mob as a gifted speaker ends his plea
in a burst of oratorical fireworks.
Imagine, the far reaching results
of this political find. Who knows but
that history may be made; who knows
but that the famed Lincoln Douglas
debates may fade into oblivion be-
fore the blasting rays of a debate
between two aspirants to class pres-
Picture a meeting in 165. An im-
patient restless mob, then the per-
suading, enthralling voice of a would
be Prom chairman, and the audience
becomes quiet, held by the speaker's
Suddenly a co-ed springs to her
feet, "Who are you going to take to
the Prom if you are elected?" she
demands. The candidate falteis; he
is not ready to meet that vital issue.
Bedlam breaks forth. He tries com-
promise, but it is too late, and with I
bowed head he leaves the platform,
a broken man.
Consider the spectacle of State
street, unromantic State street, blaze
up forth in the glory of a torch light
procession; for when political frenzy
is fired by the impassioned voice of
man, it knowsno bounds.
The magnitude of the picture is
thrilling. We wait, eager and expect-
ant, for the re-birth of political ora-
tory, which has so long been dead.
THE CANE RUSH
(The Ohio State Lantern)
When the crack of the gun Friday
afternoon opens the annual cane rush
between the freshmen and sophomores
both classes should have a full rep-
resentation of their men on the field.
This contest between the classes is
the only struggle in which everyone
can participate and supplants the old-
fashioned hazings of which one used
to hear so much, but which is rarely
seen in the present-day university.
For this r'eason every male member
of each class should -be present to
engage in the battle royal. Twenty
minutes of rough-and-tumble in old
clothes will harm no one, and after
the contest the man who took part
will have the feeling of satisfaction
that comes from knowing that he has
done what he could for his class.
The socalled class fightis harmless.
It affords amusement for the upper-
classmenwho throng the stands and
recall their scrimmages of recent
years. It entertains the downtown
folk, who always travel 'to Ohio field
to see the annual tussle.
Tradition is satisfied by the holding
of this annual battle-between the two
lower classes, which are supposed to
cherish bitter enmity toward each oth-
er. After the battle, the classes re-
sume their amicable relations which
