Nothing is of greater a*,. to the
advancement of "A Greater Michigan"
thap the interest which students take.
In campus activities. It not only
brings about a more active campus
life and a stronger and more efficient
organization of the studonts on the
campus, but brings the students en-
gaged in such act'vity into closer
touch with the University and makes
Vhem better and more loyal alumni
after they have gone.
But campus activities atre not some-
thing that can be taken in small doses.
They must be entered into whole
heartedly, and with interest that is
only surmounted by interest in schol-
astic enterprise in the University.
And they must be entered into from
the first. It does little good for 'the
junior or the senior to signify his in-
tention of working on the publica-
tions. A man who has already spent j
several years on the campus has littleI
chance of °ga'ning a place on the foot-
ball team. It is upon freshmen that
the duty of taking up the work rests,
for to them, and them alone can it re-

The purpose of this meeting is to
Introduce the class of. 1927 to that~
sphere of' college life, campus activi-
ties. They will be told what there is
to do and how they can do it. They
will be instructed and encouraged, to
the end that campus 'activities may
grow stronger and that Mchigan may
be "A Greater Michigan."

We can only say that judging from
these reports the female class of 1927
must be a most extraordinary aggre-
gation of nifty nymphs.
We found this printed' on a post-
the other day; it strikes us, further-
more, as a worthy cause which should
have the support of every student:
I, the undersigned, would like to be-
come a member of the Faculty Nursing
Association, and do hereby pledge $1
a month fromn October to June inclu-
sive in support thereof.

However, it was not signed.
We have noticed, of late, a deplora-
ble effort on the part of the faculty to
assure their students that aquiz sec-
tion is not a quiz section, but a dis-
cussion section. If this continues,
lectures may soon degenerate into re-
itals, classes into pedro parties, and
lab sections into pot-luck suppers.

(The Chicago Tr ibune)
The dlecision not to permit the west
SPoint eleven to play Nore Dame. at
Chicago seems to us ' an instance of
official shortsightedness. At any rate
the reason reported to haive been (de-
cisive against the western grip, in our
opinion, ought not to have out weighed
the reasons for it.
The loss of three (ays of study
rather than one, considering how hardj
the boys have to work at the AademyvI~
ought not to be considered so sri-
ouis, as to counterbalance the ld
vantages to the army and to the coun-
try which bringing the toam west
promised. The army needs the benefit
of publicity. It needs to be sold to
the people as 'apossession of ours to,
be proud of. An American who doesn't
get a wholesome thrill out of seeing
cadets march on the field is lacking
in something lie needs badly. It is anj
inspiration to see the clean cut, virile
young Americanism of the army eleven
and a reminder that West Point is an
American school like any other varsity
or college or academy a part of our
American life, inherently and repre-
sentiat'vely Amercan; not a thing
apart biut, on the contrary, at the veryI
heart of our American scheme.
Regular soldiers fr quenilyv com-
plain . that the American public does;
not know the army. It has boon1
largely the fault of the army itself,
and this decision against the Chicago;
game is an illustration. The chance toI
come west should have been seized,
not refused. It was a chance to 'put.
West Point into the imaginat'on of
the west as something other than a
school for soldiers, for specialists in
war, a-chance to make the west think
of West Point as a great institution
of education, a citizen maker, which -t
is. The army authorities should real-
ize that the little army obstructionists
are strong in the west and that the
army is~ seldom visible 'to the eyes of
the western, public. Until recently
when it was visible it was likely to
be badly represented unless there was
trouble. The army of today needs toi
b~e advertised for what it and
brought home o us all for what it is-
as representative and inspiringly
American an institution as we possess.

A Paris jury rendered a verdict re-

we H v o g * n e o d s u s Ayoung m an working in the offices of
~the American E~xpress company dis-
appeared last February with $0,000 of
the firm's money. Ie was arrested
several months later and put on tr'al'
last Saturday. The (defendant frankly!
confessed that he had taken the money
from time to time to the amont
charged and had spent it on his swee.-
heart* and in having a good time. The
prosecuting attorney demanded se-
vere punishment, but the attorney fo
the defendant made a speech delar-
ing tht youth, would be youth andi'
then described the American [Express
company as "an enormously richi con-
cern which had made much money
exploiting people on French soil,

which had made millons win exchangeI
speculation at the expense of the
franc, which' did not sufficiently watch
its employes, else the young moan could
never have taken so much, and finally!
as a company which had too much
money anyhow."
That sounds like the old (lays in
merry E~ngland when Robin Hood and
his jolly men infested Sherwood for
est., robbing the rich and giving to the
poor. But the main purpose in citingI
this story is to call attention to the
inefficiency of the- present jury sys-
tem. The above example is rather
far fetched and comes from another
country where the system of law is
somewhat different, hut it serves. to
illustrate the psychology of the aver-
age jury.
The jury of today is composed of a
mixture of sentiment and old-fogyisnm.
It is inclined toward sob-stuff, uin-
acgui~nted with legal procedure, and
unable to understand legal language.
Lawyers, thanks to their careful
training, seemingly are able to refrain
from drawing against a dlefendant all
adverse dedIuction because of the color
of his eyes or the cust of his coat.
To the layman jury, on the other hantd,
this is app to, and in fact very often
does, prove to be a (deciding factor.

here are some of the secret abracada-
br'as of E. C. Simmons, whom we be-
lieve to be the high mogul of the Keen
Kutter hardware business. H-e says:
Among thme rules that governed
me in by boyhood or younger days
3were the following:
I never was a clock watcher.
Work came first with me,
always, and everything else was
secondary in the highest degree.
I never asked for an increase in
compensation. (Do you suppose he
means a raise?) I determined that
I would command it by results, in-
stead of asking for it or crying for
it. . . .
Many a time one single bad habit
will standl in the way of a man's
progress in life and cause him to be
a failure. (Follows -a story of how
'lie refused a bright looking young
man a position because he had seen
himt smok~ing.)
Therefore I say to you boys, if
you have any bad habits-cut them
out. If you don't cut them out, and
don't succeed,- in life, blame your-
self---it will all be your fault.
As the jacket on the book says:
The secret is out-and no average
young fellow can bring up any hard
luck story if he fails to attain the
highest success.
