Life has recently been celebrating
its fortieth birthday. To the average
person this fact means little: he is apt
merely to dismiss it as unimportant.
What significance attaches to a comic
magazine? If it were the Atlantic
Monthly, or Harper's, whose anniver-
sary was being observed, the &cca-
sion might be worth noticing; but a
merely frivolous paper-! Thuds most'
people would remark, if indeed they
remarked on the occasion at all.
And yet Life is right in considering
its birthday worthy of note. Life,
and its associate, have performed a
great service in mirroring to the
world a far-from-unimportant side of
American character. It is a truism
that no people can be understood
without a knowledge of its humor.
Where would England be without
Punch? And to a lesser extent Life

Since the college student attends
an educational institution primarily to
gain, information, and since he knows
that much of the desired information1
must be gleaned from textbooks, he
has, ordinarily, no aversion to pur-
chasing textbooks in generous quan-
tities. There are instances, however,
of students being asked to purchase
an unreasonable number of books for
particular courses. In one course
five or six books are used during
the semester ,and their cost is ex-
tremely -high, when it is remembered
that they are 'ied but two or three
times in class. Students are some-
times asked to buy books of several
hundred pages when they are con-
cerned only with the material in one
Students make no mistake when
they buy classico .or books laden with
information which they expect to keep'
for their library. But when books
are bought simply to secure informa-
tion of minor importance, thumbed}
through a time or two, and then set
aside, there is an obvious waste.
A most practical plan already in
use might be more extensively ap-
plied in course, requirinsx access to
several costly textbooks, The class
could be asked to contribute a nomi-
nal sum, with which several copies of
each book would be purchased. These
books would then be put on the
shelves at the library where the class
could read them at their convenience.
This plan would lessen the textbook
charge for each individual member of
the class while making the material
fully as available for istudy.
It is generally understood that the
cost of textbooks is only a small per-I
centage of the total cost of a univer-
sity education, but it is also true that
to a student working his way through
school, or on a nominal monthly al-
lowance, costs of every nature should

Professor MArt, as he js - called by
his acquaintances, i a true inspira-'
tion to his exceptional children, often
relating to them the tale of how he
upset tradition by announcing to his
surprised classes on the day preced-
ing Christmas vacation that theses
would be due on the first day of the
new year, and how their saddened faces
weire transformed into countenances
of joy when he jocularly remarked,
"And thesi1 all"
He sometimes forgets to take at-
tendlance before football games, and
has been known on several occasions
to give bolts when they were least
expected. He is always ready to aid
in student social activities, and each
year is much sought after as chap-
eron for the J-Hop, because he sel-
dom exercises the divine prerogative
of moral guardianship, being content
to stand guard over the punch bowl
all evening. The guests appreciate
his unselfish interest, and in tokenE
present him with such gifts as gold
loving cups and aluminum tooth-brush
- Professor Mort is one of the most
beloved men on the Michigan facul-
ty. Many of his admirers will no
doubt welcome the suggestion that
they cut out this picture and frame
it, as a constant reminder of hisj
sparkling wit, his interesting lectures,'
and his untiring efforts to bring the
faculty man in closer touch with the
rtudent. May his tribe increase!
How often have we accepted the old
bromide, "Meet you at four," m a -
phophetic statement, only to be dis-
appointed by having to tediously wait
for the robber of time who may ap-
pear thirty or forty minutes after the
designated appointment.
This careless hafbit is predominant
among the undergraduates who have
come to regard minutes as trifles and
the obligation to be prompt as a hin-
drance to their own convenience.
The business man has given vent to
his disgust many times against the
college graduate in business as theI
epitome of unreliability. The total
grievance may be summed up in this
same lack of appreciation for the im-
portance of being on time. Even pro-
- fessors are handicapped by the habit
of tardiness which the student never
seems to overcome.
This desultory attitude towards
promptness is costing the young man
in business an actual loss in dollars
and cents and many a failure and
lack of succss are directly traceable
to a lack of punctuality cultivated at

(Daily Iowan)
Not a few have commented upon
the growing effeminacy of college
men. Under the influence of soft-,
cushioned luxury virility of former
days is slowly degenerating into a
weakness of mind and body which is
bdth alarming and disgusting. Along
with this loss of red blood hm come
insipidity, sluggishness, menta. stag-
Ration and other evils, all of which
are becoming increasingly apparent in
the men of the student body. Numer-
ous phrases coined almost daily give
ample evidence of the change. Sad
enough, the terma "jelly bean",
"cooke Busher", "cake eater", "tea
hound", "davenport spaniel" charac-
terize quite accurately our college
This condition has resulted from a
change in the standard of living. Lux-
ury and ease are the order of the
da'. Hard work has fallen into dis-
favor as has mental ruggedness. One
bas but to read the files of the Daily
Iowan of fifty years back to see the
great difference in college life. Stu-
dents then lived in cold and dimly
lighted, rooms, many cooked their own
meals, paid their fees with manual
labor, and not a few went barefoot to
class most of the year. They pos-
sessed an honest deviire for an edu-
cation and were willing to undergo
any amount of sacrifice to get it. IfI
they were a bit rough in their man-
ners and uncouth in their dress, they
retained their individuality, some-
thing which few of our students to
day possess.
Young men entering college now are !
led astray by false values. Social
lions are, they think, the leaders of I
the campus and naturally they iat-
tempt to follow as closely a possi-
ble in their pathes. They becomeI
fadists, addicted ti) bell-bottomed
trousers; crumpled hats or what-
ever else the stle happens to be.
They spebd their time hbntering with
simple-minded co-eds. lounging in fra-
ternity hot';;es, or slumped over in
pool hall chairs. It is safe to say
that they are enthusiastic about
nothing, not even the lifeless exist-
ence they lead.
If they think, they are too pihleg-
matic to express their thoughts Ef-
feminacy is the price of luxury.
