She overlooks completely the oppor-
tunities which the University has pre-
sented her, of bringing worth while
students into her home and into con-l
tact with her family. She may be ac-
commodating to her "boys" or "girls"
as she calls them, but her accommoda-a
tions are made out of a sense of ne-I
cessity, and not out of a sense of duty
or friendship. She is civil and cour-

nesslike, and never intimate or gra-

sympathizes with his ups and downs
and who is. on the alert to provide
him with every convenience which j
will make him at home. She knows
what town he is from, and she tries
to comfort him, should he get home-
sick. She looks at the picture of his
best girl on his dresser. She admires it
with him, and she seeks 'to console
him if he does not hear from her as
regularly as usual. She knows hisl
likes and dislikes, and she refuses'
to be simply his "landlady"-she In-

He Reached the Top:
HE 'Vice-President of a great life insurance
company who began his career as an agent
has this to say to seniors whoare aboutto
graduate from college:
"If you love work and desire to pursue an honorable,U
useful and lucrative mission in life this is the business
for you to take lep. Life insurance salesmanship offers
a fine field for the energies of the splendid young men
in our colleges.
"That this is true is demonstrated by those college men
who have taken up life insurance for they have shown
that the college man is fit for this kind of a job andI
that the job also is fit for the college man.
"The work of the life insurance salesman is distinguished
by independence and opportunity for directinghisown.
l; gives allpossible opportunity for individual initiative
and a chancL. ;o make an ample income at an age when
most fellows are struggling on a wage pittance.
That is the story of one who began at the bottom and
reached the top without the help of a college educa-
tion. The advantages are with you who' graduate
from college. Before deciding your career make tin-
quiries of the "Agency Department."

OUR DEAR ANN ARBOR HOMES
If anyone were to attempt an analy-
sis of the situation, he would find that
students who room in private homes
while at the University, find them-
themselves, but Greek and Latin can-
not be effectively translated any more
than other languages can.
When a student comes to the Uni-'
versity from.high school he ought to
have had the proper elementary train-
ing in classical languages and to
know whether or not he wants to,
continue. Incoming students should
be advised of the desirability of aug-
menting their knowledge of Greek and
Latin received in their preparatory
work. If the universities will demand
that the high schools fulfill their ob-
ligations in this connection as part
of the entrance requirements, our in-
stitutions of higher education may
+ FIiMING THE FAILURES
Another solution has been offered the
ever-present problem of weeding out
the ineffectives in the colleges, th s
time from the University of Chicago.
Dean Robertson gives as the three
main reasons for student failures
"unintelligent reading, inadequate
preparation, and lack of purpose.
The second of these three causes of
failure is difficult to test. out accur-
ately, but under the new plan propos-
ed at Chicago it is hoped that at least
the first and the third can be detect-
ed. The method to be used calls in
the aid of the latest of the arts,-the
"movie". Studies have been made be-
fore of the "life of the clam' or the
k "insect world at work and play', why
not of students? The camera will be I
