HOLD ANNUAtL TAG DAY
Twenty-five boy; from the Starr
Commonwealth tt./lbiou caniivassed
Ann Arbor yesterday for funids to
continue the work of their school.
This *was their ,annual tag-day ini Ann
Arbor, and they were assisted 1)y a
number of local school cil dren.
The object of the Starr Comnmoni-
wealth for boys, according; to Floyd:
Starr, the founder, is to provide a
normal and health ful en vironmient
for friendless awl dependent boys. It
'was founded i 1913 on a forty acre
tract near Albion with seven boys and~
but one building, and1 now has fifty-'
six boys, three dormitories, a mnodern
school building, and a community
kitchen.
"We try to give our boys the best
of eve'rything in music, iterat~ure,
and art," sid MVIr.,Sari epann
the school. "They come to us from
the streets, or police courts, friend-
less and homeless, and we givei them
a real home, acid try to teach them
the meaning of responsibility and the
purpose of law. We stress the cul-
tural side of things, the boys hear no
jazz music, have only the best pic-
tures, are allowed no dime novels,'
and even the newspapers are cen-
sored,: taking oK~. the "funnies" and,
sensational news articles. We want
the boys to know the finer, more
beautiful things in life before they
leave us, i preparation for the task s
they must face later on."
The boys range from six to four-
teen years of age. They work on te
farnm and are enicouraged to take an
active interest in the school. They
have a system of self government,
rjiAd elect a counicil whi4ch tries and
ecnforces punishment 0on the cases
b1'ouight before it. Mr. Starr is assist-!
ead in his teaching and athletics by
two 'students from Antioch collego.
Mr. Starr's work recently received
the commendation of Sen. Wood-)
oridge N. Ferris, who addressed ani
open letter to the people of 1the state
asking their support. Mayor Robert
A. Camipbell andi the Chamiber of
Commterce also have end~orsed the
school, which is the only one of its
kind in Michigan.

Straw Hats Fail
TO .secure Their
Usual Popularity
Straw hats are not enjoying their
usual p~rompt popularity in Ann Ar-
bor this season. In past years the
fad became general soon after May 15,
but this year it promises to be post-
ponsed until the first or June, the datN
ofits adoption in most of the larger
A reason for this slow appearance:
of the straw hat, local dealers be-
lieve, is the reluctance of each indiv-
idual to introduce the fashion him-
self. Many of those who have pur-
chased hats apparently are waiting
for someone, else to start the ball
rolling.
Local stores recommend as their
most fashionable hats those' with low
E crowns and wide rims, and prophesy
that the Panama will be increasingly
popular this year.

a few of them conspicuously success-
fuil in their sales: "That Nice Younig
Couple" by Francis Hackett *and "The
Spring Flight" by Lee J. Splits. The'
other exception has been the lack of
pr -eminent lbest-sellers.
There have been a number o1' good,
sellers this season. "The Little Frencht
G.irl" by Anne Douglas Sedgwick,
"The Constant Nymph" by Margaret
Kennedy, and Sinclair Lewis' " Ar-
rowvsmith" have all enjoyed a. nmder-'
ate popularity, but* there has been
nothing to match the numerous sue-
cesses of previous seasons.
"Main Street" was popular for more
than''two years and booksellers esti-
mate 'that n'e'arly 2,000 copies were
sold in 'Ann Arbor. "'So B3ig" by Edna
Ferber sold more than 1,000 copies.
"If Winiter Conies" 'went beyond that
Pimrk.''More recently' Michael' Arlen's
"Green Hat" scored highi into the bun-
dreds. Even the much bedeviled
"Plastic Age" sold above 500 copies.;
Books lhaving reference to Ann Ar-,
bor or involving local interest of sonic
sort always sell well in Ann Arbor.

was a fair seller throughout the coun-'
try, enjoyed a relatively tremiendoius'
sale' here.' Webl; Wal'don's "Road to'
