time special respect and attention has
been payed to the mothers of the land.
May 11 has become traditional in this
very short time as being one of the
most cherished of our hoildays. And
that is as it should be.
Today, many mothers of Michigan
men and women are visitors in Ann
Arbor. Fortunate indeed are the sons
and da~ghters whose mothers have
been able to come to tlie university in
order tha't Mother's Day may be more
properly -and rightly celebrated. Tot
those who have been less fortunate inI
that their mothers were unable to
actually participate because of the
great distances separating the univer-
sity and the home, or because of oth-
er reasons, there can come some glad-
ness in knowing that mother awaits
with a delight a certain word of love'
from her son or daughter. The obli-
gation rests with those away from
homhe, and no individual who professes
to be an obedient child should let this
day pass by without sending home a
message of cheer and good will, if he'
has not already done so.
Here in the midst of all the bustle
and noise of college life we are so apt
to forget, and perhaps not intention-
ally so, those who are at home. We
take for granted so many things in re-
[erence to parental love because we
pj~ so young and inexperienced; be-
-ame we do uot reaLize. nor shall we
ever fully realize until we ourselves
tave become parents, the unusual diffi-
clties and i sponsibilities that par-
enthood entails. It is by far the great-
sst task in the World, and requires the
greatest amount of love and co-oper-
iticn from all the members of the fam-
ily in ord;er to insure the fullest
imount of success. And these being
fully essential, it follows that whether
-t home or away from home, it is

of one's existence. Even at the col-
ege and university age, most indivi-
luals are stl needful of that same
;uiding hand, even though many are a
ositive that they have reached the
age of independencv.

would be very small.
Canada is justified in her course.
Cameron Beck, personnel director
of the New York stock exchange, re-
cently declared, "This country has
Sentirely too many half-baked steno-
graphers, half-baked plumbers, half-
baked carpenters, and half-baked
everything." The term "half-baked"
should not be applied to our steno-!
graphers, plumbers, carpenters, in the
sense that they do not know their'
profession. They may be called half-
baked because they know nothing of
the problems of life. Indeed, the
greater part of humanity may be!
called half-baked for this reason, at
least, those who have not thoroughly
learned the problems of life through
experience. They are half-baked be-
cause, having learned little through
experience, and indeed having been
taught comparatively nothing of life,
they know nothing of it.
The director's words hold more'
truth in them than is capable of re-!
alization. They express, at once, a
problem that is arising in our civiliz-
ation and a clue to the solution. Beck
declares thatsthe knowledge of the
facts of life should be taught to high
school students "to enable theta to
guard against the pitfalls of vice and,
Can this indeed be a clue to the
solution of the problem? Today, stu-
dents graduate from high school with
a more or less sunerficial knowledge
of Latin and Algebra. They embark
upon the tasks of life equipped only
with this more or less artificial know-
ledge which can give them compar-
atively small aid in solving the pro-
blems of life. Therefore, it is thatI
their education is sadly defective.
According to supporters of Mr.

Now that the campus grass is once
more becoming green and luxuriant,
it is high time that the annual plea
he made for students to keep off
of it. It may seem silly to remind'
the student body of this matter every
year, but since facts remain that
every year the students need to be
What the students do not realize
is this: that while it will do no harm
for one student to "cut across" a
corner, when 10,000 students do the
same thing, the grass cannot grow.
If each student would get over the
idea that he is the only one, and
that it does not matter what he does,
the campus grass would be in much
better condition, and much worthier
of Michigan, than it is now. Just
watch yourself on thisI
Perhaps you observed, and perhaps
you didn't, the story in the Daily of
May 8, that purported to be an in-
terview with one G. F. Kasser, of
the Buildings and Grounds depart-
ment. Mr. Kasser rashly aired his
views on the annual custom of haul-
ing a class flag to the top of the Uni-
versity flag pole, forgetting himself
so far as, to condemn the practice
utterly. The Daily reporter quoted
him as follows:
"In addition to endangering a hu-
man life everytime a man is sent to
climb the pole it is exceedingly un-
patriotic, for during a week or so
the flag of the United States is not
in its accustomed proper place. This
gives a bad appearance to the cam-
pus and impresses visitors unfavor-
The last sentence in the story is
pretty good, too: "Better and more
manly things are expected from stu-
dents, he stated."

was unable to procure Ethel Barry-

the prevailing road conditions.
Every year it becomes nmore and
more impossible for productions to
tour with any show of profit at all
except in a few metropolitan centers.
As a result the smaller towns that
used to boast of a flourishing "opera-
house" and the country's greatest act-,
ors, now are absolutely destitute or
gobbled up by the plague-like movies.
It is significant, therefore, that Mr.
McIntyre was able to present "The
Mikado," "Zander, the Great," "The
