Disasters and accidents are not un-I
common, but none seem to be so well
standardized as the mine explosion.
"Deadly gas," "charred bodies," "de-
pendent families," "entombed men";
are all stock phrases in the report
of a mine explosion.
The words carry a peculiarly sin-
ister emotion. Death naturally repels
us, but to lbe buried alive and to suffer
a lingering death under such circum-
stances as entombed miners die is
The life of a miner under the best
possible conditions can scarcely be
considered as a desirable one. His
work takes him into the damp rock.
The light he works by is the murky
glow of his safety lamp. The most1
rugged muscles tire under the heavy
labor that covers the body with a
mucky sweat. And with all this he
still must jeopardize his life. It is a
deplorable state of affairs and the pity
is that it remains unimproved. With
explosions occuring every few months
-each one exacting as its toll scores
and hundreds of lives to say nothing
of the property loss--one would think
that mine executives would be making
herculanean efforts to minimize the
danger. The results are puny. Care-
less ventilation still leaves deadly
gases to hover in unused portions of
the mine. Careless patroling of the
mine does not discover these gases.
Part of the newspaper story of the
recent disaster at Castle Gate, Utah,
reads as follows: "The company of-
ficials say that the rescue parties are
well organized now and are pushing
ahead with all possible speed. If
"prevention parties" were organized
with as great an efficacy, "rescue part-
ies" might, in a large degree, be abol-

THE SO.CALLED COLLEGE MAN
(From The Chicago Maroon)
City editors and budding novelists
have always evidenced a peculiar in-
terestin the college youth. They
have, in their inspection of under-!
THE BETTER GRADE
graduate life, looked only for the col-
orful and the bizarre; and they have
recorded, in their metropolitan dailies
and first novels the intriguing rather
than the nornial, the sensational
rather than the representative. And
from their often distorted accounts of
essentially irrevalent university act iv-
ities, there has grown up in each gen-
eration a conception of undergraduate
life which is curious in the extreme.
Three decades ago, in the bull-dog;
pipe-and-sweater, Stover-at-Yale, pe-
riod, the beaux idol of collegiate lit-
erature was the brawny, ingenious
youth who rated wonderful in foot-4
ball, great in track, fair in baseball
snd from there down in Latin. his-
tory and math; the earnest young
man who regarded policemen and cab-
bies as his special victims and who
came to college with the sincere pur-
pose of never being caught. This was
your dad and mine.
Of late, aping Fitzgerald more than
Fitzgerald ever aped life, rewrite men
have treated the undergraduate as a
smooth-haired, impr.actical, mildly in-
effectual person interested chiefly in
football, minor poets, women and gin.
Now from William Allen White andl
the Emporia, Kansas, Gazette comes
a new interpretation of the University
man. He is, according to the well
known editor, a brass-lunged, leather-
necked snob, "and there is more in
the same key."
Perhaps this bit of copy will inaug-
tirated a new epoch, perhaps the edi-
torial conception of college life is due
for a change. But the change, while
welcome, will not bring the college
nan of fiction, journalistic or other-
vise, nearer actually. He will remain
in the same category as the musical
comedy Englishman and the Portfolio
professor, an amusing phenomenon.

aAs a member of the President's cab-
Iiget and as Secretary of the Navy in
4rticular Mr. Edwin Denby is no
uore. His resignation caused by the
e4nsistent demands of the Senate and
doSouse of Representatives became ef-
fictive on Monday of this week.
Just to what extent Mr. Denby is
guilty of mistreatment of office is a,
matter that is really very little known.
That he did do several athings that
lacked a fine. and matue sense of
judgment is certain however. When
in the mictst of the fire Mr. Denby as-
sorted with boldness that he would do
everything all over again in the self-
same faahionwere he to begin at the
beginning once more, he most certain-
ly did not realize the extnt of such a
sttement. Had he realized he would
p obably not eav made his decara-
tLion so sweeping. There was in truth
no display of strength 'manifested in
saying such-a thing and to judge from
tMe consequences of it it was not a
profitable utterance. - But mistakes
Must be made in order to benefit.
Over n 'retroit the home of the
frmer Secretary of the Navy, several
Grganizations have informed Mr. Den-
by of their absolute confidence in him.
MIore than that they have planned to
tive him a royal greeting upon his ar-
rival from Washington. All this is as
t should be, for after all to condemn
a man on what evidence was furn-
shed in the case of Mr. Denby is really
acting in a most hasty manner. Much'
more time should be consumed and a
great deal more of far-reaching evi-
lence should be considered before a
man of Mr. Denby's kind be condemn-
d. This of course not having been]
lJne, it is a very nice thing that Mr.
Denby's friends are doing what they
everyone will quite agree to the
act that at all times did Mr. Denby
aet with the highest amount of sin-
erity. At no time was his integrity
ot be questioned, nor the strength of
u s good-will. Even his most ardent
opponents concede the point that of
naliclous intent Mr. Denby was at no
.me .guilty. Of course they concede
;his for it was after all the truth.
Mr. Denby himself too is to be ad-
nired for the way in which he bears
KNOW THE UNIVERSITY'
University students know who Na-1
poleon was, many of them can discuss
Einstein's theory of relativity, some
even know the location of the princi-
pal cities of Europe. But a senior
recently couldn't inform a stranger as
to the location of Sarah Caswell An-
gell hall. Dozens of Michigan stu-
dents have never heard of the Stearn's
Music collection, literally thousands
do not know who is president of thej
Student Christian association, and not
one in a hundred can tell the name of'
the Engineering arch.
Students - who do not know their'
campus are missing a great source of
education and interest. Knowledge of
the campus is intellectually instruct-
ive. 'The student who hasn't visited
the art galleries of Alumni Memorial
hall, who" has not seen the Stearn's
Music collection in Hill auditorium, or
who does- not know of the instructive
exhibits in the Zoological Museuni is
missing some real treats.
Knowledge of the campus enlarges
one's interests. The student who does-
n't know the names of the prominent
students an4 professors, who isn't
I acquainted with the principal organ-
izations of the University, who does
' not even know the location of the
main buildings,--such a student, it1

his enthusiasm for Michigan. And he

on outsiders who may be interested in

For the. Coitest
My dear Mr. Cowles;
Knowing that the word to be se-
lected in your present contest should
lbe as meaningless as a co-ed, I sub-
mit the simple term "Beetle" which
I think very proper. You can readily
see the possibilities of "Wow! Look at
the complexion on that Beetle!" By
using the least bit of imagination one
could quickly derive many applica-
tions and usages.

have recently become so vital an ile-
ment in Mr.. Shuter's annual priduc-

to the more intimate atmosphere 'of
