Night Editor-RALPH N. BYER,
After a student has been graduated
from the University his. chief prob-
lem is selecting the right employ-
ment. In his questfor a position he
is likely to take one which offers
good and immediate financial remu-
neration. Thus today we find a great
many college athletes accepting pos-
tions as coaches. They find such em-'
ployment offers a satisfactory mone-
tary reward as well as an opportu-
nity to be in the limelight.
The student's danger in accepting

sch positions was ably pointed out{
by Coach Fielding Hl. Yost when in-
terviewed recently on this topic. "Such!
work for ihe graduate," the coach said,'
"just takes so much time off from
etting started in whatever line of
work ho will eventually go into."
Cc ach Yost further pointed out
that the average life of a coach as
a coach is but three years. These
facts dceserve serious ponderance by
those who would obtain the bot po-;
sitions-those with a future.
Occasionally a college athlete goeri
into professional baseball. While he
is in the "big show" he receives an
excellent salary, but unless he is the
exceptional man, hip years in the "bWg
show"'are limited, and if lie remains
in professional baseball more than
ten - years he is a wonder.
The collegian who begins at thel
bottom of the ladder in some indus-
trial pursuit may find his beginning
salary meagre and unsatisfactory
Neverthel&3, if he has made sound
connections in an enterprise where
there is a future for him, he will
eventually land a position of respon-
sibility., providing, of course, he haF
shown ability.
The graduate is naturally tempted
to look toward immediate rewards.
but if he is far-sighted in the matter'
of selecting a position, he will prefer
to be .more moderately compensated}
at first with surer possibilities for the

i 1

of exams and rumors of exams, his
sad story of a wasted semester and
his total unpreparedness for the final
reckoning period of the examination
His is a sorry plight, as over his
cup of coffee or mid-afternoon malted-
milk he pours out the folly of his
being at college, his absolute inabil-
ity to grasp even the most elementary
rudiments of the most elementary
subject; a failure at twenty! Frag-
ments of philosophy escape him in his
mutterings on the vacuousness of life
in general. He knows the depths of
despair; the great cult of Pessimism
never had a more religious follower.
Truly a subject for pity!
And if out of compassion we were
to help him, though ourselves in a'
glass house and pressed for time,
lending him our neatest and most
comprehensive notes, lending him our!
ears for troubling questions and our
own pet secretsof success to supe-
rior grades, he would receive the
same like the. proverbial drowning
man, murmuring, however, about the
hopelessness of trying to master a
four hour course in a week He re-
marks that he thinks he will go to
work for his uncle in New York
will not even bother to wait for
But a omnth later, after the mad!
mental nightmare of trying to collect
and correlate straggling and Ifrag-
mentary ideas is over, and the calm
of the succeeding semester he, again
cast a roseate glow of peace and ease
over life, we run across our friend of
more tempestuous days, not in New
York but leaning against his favorite
soda counter inbibing a mid-after-
noon malted-milk as of yore. If then
we ask him regarding the seriousness
of his recent grades he will reply,
unashamedly, "Oh, two- A's, a B and
a C." That Is our cue t choke on
a swallow of ginger ale, and to con-
sider ourselves well introduced to this
type of disciple of pessimism.
One of the characteristic feature
of American life has been the gradual
trend towards informality. Most- of
the highly artificial standards of lv-
ing which were prevalent in the eigh-
teenth and nineeenth centuries have
been by degrees eliminated, and
whether or not this has been for the
best the influence -of the evolution
can be traced in practically every
phase of our existence. For instance,
witness the startling change in the
manner of formal dress that has taken
The full dress suit which not many
years ago was the only proper attire
for all formal dinners, parties, and
the like is now rarely seen except at
an evening wedding or at a dance to
!which more than ordinary formality is
attached. Men are more abashed
than ever about putting on the tra-
ditional "high hat", and the cutaway
when worn is almost always acom-
.panied by a derby.
This is the day of the tuxedo which
not long ago was frowned upon at
any occasion but an informal dinner
or at the theater. Yet now, it takes
precedence over the full dress suit at
most formal dances, is worn exclu-
sively at formal dinners, and is seen
extensively at grand opera. So di-
versified are the uses of the tuxedo
for evening wear that many a man
dispenses with the full dress suit' al--
together and still is properly groomed
on practically all occasions.
But at least one evil is apt to ac-
company this greater leeway afforded
to men in the wearing of formal at-
tire. The breaking down of old
standardis results in an influx of new
ideas, many of which are not eccepted.
Sby whatever authority we have to

The tiny sea horse was discourag-

but the age old accumulation of salt
tears shed by prehistoric seamonsters.
As I say he wept; and he was not
alone. About him were grouped hisI

This perplexes the average man in
his quest to ascertain what is cor-
