In a dirty little quick-lunch restau-
rant up-state, there is a sign which
says, "Speak a kind word to the fel-
low next to you-it may change his
whole life." A bit maudlin, perhaps,
but it is often the seemingly small
things are the most significant. An
instance of this is the fact that police
officials in large cities testify that the
number of suicides doubles during the
rainy seasons.
Oregon university is justly proud
of having been the originator of "The
Oregon Hello." She has extended the
original practice in order not to be
outdone by other colleges. As a con-
sequence, a stranger on her campus
is made to feel welcome, and he
leaves with the highest regard for the
school as a whole.
We like to think of Michigan as
being a western college. Why not,
then, endow her with the cardinal
virtue of the West? Can't we say
"Hello" the next time we pass a fel-
low-student? It wouldn't seem too
odd after a few times,-and we'd all
feel a little better for having given
and received a cordial greeting.
Plans are under way, it is reported
to place Mitchell on the same ticket

cent for prohibition."

Now that the Board in Control of

we are to submit for your approval
the first suggestion which that august
body has made. The idea is like this:
There is to be organized a new in-'
stitution on this campus. It is to be
called the Rolls Club, and member-
ship is open to anyone whose resi-
dence is within a radius sixty millionI
miles of the Press Building. The!
members will be nominated and elect-
, ed automatically after they have won
1 the proper number of points. This
Club will have an annual dinner at
the Union this spring at which vari-
ous notables of both the student body
and the faculty will speak.
-Joe Zilch.
This dinner will actually take place
and is not merely a figment of our
imagination. It has the sanction of
t the Board in Control of Rolls and
- there are already four members, of
which some are honorary and some
~ are active, who will attend. The
whole affair will be very informal and
r will be opened to both men and wom-
en, students or otherwise.
Membership to the Rolls Club, asf
we have said before, will be awarded
, on the° point system. Each contribu-
tion to this department which appears
in print will constitute at least one
point, and in some cases more, at the

Senator James E. Couzens, repub-
lican, of Michigan, chairman of the
Internal Revenue Bureau committee,
has forthe1 past year and more inter-
ested himself in the detail workings
of the nation's tax collection system.
The fruits of his investigation, from
the tax-payer's standpoint, are indi-
cated in the following excerpts from
remarks by the senator:
"I believe that the law requiring
returns from individuals with in-
comes of less than $5,000 should be
repealed, thereby eliminating the
filing of an enormous number of re-
turns which causes not only great an
noyance to the tax-payer but also
costs the government a great deal of
money in the handling. .......The
adoption of the policy I have sug-
gested would wipe out 91 per cent of
the returns made."
Interest in such statenents should
be aroused by the trend therein in-
dicated: the adoption of federal sys-
tems with expensive, confusing, and
irritating labor removed. Granting
that the senator is optimistic in his
estimate of a 91 per cent saving in
labor, it will also be granted that
even a 50 per cent reduction would
be joyously welcomed by both the
treasury department and the tax-
Senator Couzens has announced
his ideas in brief. He wants, in con-
nection with the labor saving plan
above outlined, the repal of excise
or nuisance taxes, and a 50 per cent
reduction in surtax rates (which, in
his own words, "would bring the
maximum surtax rate on inomes of
over $500,000 down to 20 per cent.").
There are many who will find fault
with his surtax plan and the raising
of the exemption limit, but there are
none who will decry repeal of the
nuisance taxes, and the complaint
against decreasing the work of the
treasury department 91 per cent will
be lodged only by 91 out of every 100
workers in that department.
And Senator Couzens has fitted his
wholeoutline admirably to the $350,--
t 000,000 reduction in the nation's taxes
which will almost certainly be placed
in effect before March 15.

A nonymous communikations will be
disregarded. The names of communi.
,arts will, however, be regarded as
confidential tuon request.
It comes to mind in reviewing
briefly M. M. M's. article in Wednes-
day's Daily, that Ann Arbor presents
but little contrast to a general infla-
tion of living expenses throughout the
country. That a nation-wide economic
condition should obtain slightly larg-
er proportions in one locality than in
another is not out of harmony with
the law of averages.
To cite M. M. M's. particular refer-
ence, we have in Ann Arbor a room-
ing-house condition not duplicated in
Columbus (O. S. U.), due chiefly to,
the fact that Columbus, being a large
city, regards the University as but a
unit of its existence, while in our own
city, the one issue of growth and
prosperity rests entirely upon possi-
bilities attendant to the University.
In the light of this then, the normal
plane of property valuation coinci-
dent to a city of this size, is Here
found to be raised. This may be a.
sufficient explanation for that burden-
ing factor of school existence.
In a strictly college town too, one
naturally comes more )in contact with
the novelties of dress, amusement,
and quite possibly, spendthrift de-
vices. These, however, are not to be
confused with living expenses, but are
rather the funiction of the varied
tastes and purses of individuals. As
for competition (between like units),
the presence of seven merchandisers
of men's wearing apparel within the
short space of two blocks on State
street seems to deny the assertion
that the life of trade is "quite ap-
parently lacking." Hence it appears
to me that M. M. M. has confused the
