There is certainly some regret to be
experienced at leaving home, but it
seems impossible that men of the col-
lege age cannot tear themselves away
from their loved ones three days
sooner, and reach Ann Arbor in time
to classify when they are expected to.
Early bolting is equally as inexcus-
The reason for these two forms of
delinquency is plain and well known,
so well known as to be trite; such
conduct is merely the manifestation of
a serious case af laziness, of an in-
herent dislike for work, and a shirk-
ing of resp1onsibility. When we were
younger, father's right arm was con-
sidered the, most effective treatment
for such an ailment, but under the
present conditions a higher fine, and
a less gullible acceptance of excusses
at the Registrar's office would do much
toward eradicating this tardiness.

In deprecating the censorious atti-

House of Bishops risds to urbanity
and liberality. Carelessness of speech
and freedom of behavior may result
from the very virtue of youth itself-
from "the dislike of convention, the
desire to be natural and human";
from "willingness and determination
to level social distinctions and forego
socialprivilege"; from "a larger free-
dom in social habits and a real de-
mocracy of thought and action." The

USED TO BE
Michigan used to be a school of
athletic interest and prowess. Has!
that characteristic faded with other
tendencies and traditions which have
disappeared into the past?
The first signs of. indifference
towards athletic activity may have
appeared a number of years ago. But,
they became especially noticeable last
season when a school of seven thou-
sand men failed to send out enough
athletes to support a satisfactory track
team. And this was not a temporary
condition. At the present time pleas
are again being made for the turn-out
of enough cinder men to enable a
choice in the picking of Michigan's
team. Such a situation is indeed de-
plorable. ' But that is not all.
The time honored and popular sporL.
of football, the one game whicli will
never grow old or tiresome, the core
of Michigan's field spirit, is reduced
to a state wherein it must issue a4

Michigan having to issue a request for
recruits in the one game in which her

Men on the campus are no less
physically powerful than the men of
ten or twenty years ago. With the
constantly increasing size of the Uni-
versity there should be more 'able>
athletes now than ever before. Michi-
gan's athletic prowess still remains.
Is it a waning interest which accounts
for the present lamentable .situation?
It will take the turn-out of a lot
of athletes now apparently on the in-
different list to clear up this question
in the way it must be cleared.
It is indeed deplorable that after
hinumerable requests by the authori-
ties of the University, and despite

register late, this practise continues.

A LESSON IN FAME
According to competent judges the'
missing link in the school of prize
fighting has been found. He is dusky
In skin, has fists of steel and jaws
of iron, and his name is Siki, the
battling Senagelese. Last Sunday_
amid the shrieks and yells of a multi-
tude of excited Frenchmen this tawny
son of Africa made a Parisian holiday
by literally butchering Georges Car-
pentier, the erstwhile idol of France.
Siki by doing so made himself ,the
middle-heavy weight champion of
Europe and the hero of a million fight'
fans the world over.
The defeated Carpentier claims that
even at this early date his admirers
admire him no more and his friends
are gone. It took just one swing
from the fist of an angry and savage
African to bring down into a heap of#
crumbled ruins this idol of the French.
Carpentier is forgotten in the uni-
versal cry of, "Give us Siki."

delight. For; Ithose who fed theirK
senses upon the surprises of varied
color, there was the kaleidoscope.
But would the Bishops themselves in
their youth have submitted to direc-
tion and leadership, remaining stead-
fast in joys of home, if the moving
pictures and musical comedy had
beckoned? One has heard much of the
buggy-rides of yesterday, of the rap-j
tures of seeing Nelly home; but with
the modern runabout champing its
bit who would submit to the limita-
tions imposed by Old Dobbin? For
the decline of home life there is a
cause beyond the "low ideals" of par-
ents, beyond the "high spirits," even
the suppositious "high purpose," of
"The young people of today," the
I-louse of Bishops concludes, "are pre-
cisely what we have made them."
This sounds like humility and beyond
a doubt was graciously meant; but
the new generation may well question
such a view, however high the au-
thority. Neither parents nor Bishops
make flappers; they are the work of
