iBnythe is one of those unusual in-
dividuals who actually read their
rhetoric assignments. He justifies him-
self by saying that they are some-
times worth reading and often tinged,
with humor-and anyhow, it is inter-
esting to see what sort of thing pro-
fessors have a weakness for.
But even Smythe's curiosity will not
be sufficient to keen him in righteous;
paths if he is compelled to do his
work in the rhetoric library much
longer. He grows emotional in speak-
ing of it. The ghosts of a thousand
dead colds leer at him from the dus-
ty racks until he longs for clean, col
air, heavy footsteps wrack ancient
stairs until his nerves cry out for
peace, faculty members converse to-
gether in funerealy hushed voices or
arouse a troop of dismal echoes by
their cautious chuckling, until Smythe
wishes he had the courage of Everett
Smythe likes best to read under a
mellow light before a gently crackling
fire. He doesn't mind a little noise, or
a little stir about him, as long as it is
frank and'healthy, and not too bois-
terous. It's the half-subdued, tiptoe--
ing, consciously hushed but irritably
intruding noises that destroy his abil-
ity to concentrate. Smythe says the
rhetoric library should be kept abso-
lutely quiet, or the books should be
moved to' a room in the main library.
They do little good where they are.
Mr. Steinmetz, king of electrical wiz-

exhaustion of our coal supply, gives
evidence of the vast amount of work
nature could do for us if we were but
to take advantage of her seemingly
endless reserve, of potential capacity

a rule, limited to formal matters con--
cerning one particular course. Per-
haps, the most effective manner of
fostering the desired personal com-
munion and one that has already been
practised advantageously by certain
professors on the campus is for fac-
ulty men to invite students to their I
homes for informal talks under condi,{
tions most favorable to freedom of ex-
The student gains much from-these
informal talks that it is practically
impossible for him to derive from a
class. The professor is merely one of
the group and the human element'
present in him of which the student
may not have been aware before is
brought to light. The mature view-
point of the former serves as a guide
to the latter's mental outlook which
is apt to be somewhat narrow. But
most of all, students profit immeasur-
ably by becoming intimately acquaint-
ed with a well developed personality.
Because of the success the plan
has met with in the few instances it
has been carried out, and the advan-
tages enumerated above which appear
to be linked with it, it might be ad-.
visable that this custom be adopted
more generally on the campus. A

Many schools have laid a great deal
of stress on hockey, skiing ,and skat-
in, and Dartmouth has been famous
for years for her winter carnivals.
Now Wisconsin is awakening to the
possibilities of such an affair and hasj
engaged special coaches for skiing
and skating. Michigan, while not
given the advantage of long cold
spells, has enough cold weather anat
