The program of arbitration, secur-#,
ity, and disarmament offers an ex-
tremely desirable condition to those
who are able to follow it out to a
successful completion,--international
good-will, permanently assured.
There are a great many obstacles in
the path of those who attempt to at-
tain that end,-but it is better to ex-
pend an unusual effort once, and
build a bridge, than to go the long
way around forever.
The cause of the outside activity, long
frowned upon by the purely academic
minds of many of the faculty, has

At the request of the National
Pneumatotherapeutical and Phreno-
logical Society we have conducted an
extending investigation of dating at
the University of Michigan. We be-
lieve that the report may be of inter-
est to students of Pneumatotherapeu-
tics and Phrenology so we are taking
the liberty of producing it here.
Fellow members of the National
Pneumatotherapeutical and Phreno-
logical Society:-
Your committee appointed early
last year at the annual spring meet-
ing of the society, has the honor to
put before you its complete report,
which, we hope will meet with your
approval, and fulfill its purpose; i. e.
to put before you the facts, and noth-
ing but the facts, concerning the re-
cently developed Phemomenum
known throughout the Eastern, Mid-
dle Western and Western parts of
this country as well as England and
the Continent (exclusiveof the small
area about Wriplockwizin, Russia,
where the iiative residences are an
average of 23478763.09 Kilometres
apart, thus prohibiting the existence
of this phenomenum) at dating.
Before delving any further into this
matter, your committee has felt that
in order to clarify the study which it
has made, in your minds, it is vital
that it be generally understood what
is mant by the technical term, "Dat-
ing." Because of this your committee
has spent much time in research as
to the derivation and meaning of the
The first traces of it are found in
the early Greek where we find the
worder"Kilnsik;" meaning "to polish
or shine." In the latter Greek (and
early Roman) we find the word has
changed its form slightly, and with
different pronounciation become
"Smooloy" meaning, in different parts
of the country anything from "fish-
ing" to "Egg Plant."
From then on all trace of the word
are lost until we find it again about
the time of Ramesis IX in Spain. It
again has taken another form, this-
time "Spoat" but we find it still
means the same thing-"Standing on
the head, or hands."
From that time on its progress
seems to have been steady and unim-
paired, we find it evolving through
such forms as"P rinsid," "Esterd-
valrd" and "Pongo-Ognop" until we
finally find it well established in the
Eskimo of comparatively modern
times as"Drulopnb" and here for the
first time clear and unquestionably
meaning "Rag-Doll."
Thts It is plainly seen how we
modern users of the English tongue
have come to use the term "Dating"
in its present meaning. Having thus
established clearly the meaning of
the word which describes this phe-
nominum, let us proceed to chief topic
of our report, which, is of course, the
actual practice and function of this
phenominum at this University.
BUS before we begin this discus-
sion, we believe that it is of the ut-
most importance to the members of
this society, in their desire to under-
stand the main body of the report of
this committee, that they be acquaint-
ed with some of the more technical
terms which have come to be asso-
ciated with this phenominum. So it
is our pext aim to make known to
the members of this society these

The first rather quaint one we find
is "Blind Date." This is not to be
mistaken to mean that the persons
practicing this phenomimimum are
lacking in vision as it would lead us
to believe. On the contrary it seems
to have very little connection with
vision at .all. Its meaning is a "date"
in which neither party is acquainted
with the other before the actual be-
ginning of the date. Of course these
two people may practice dating to-
gether as often thereafter as they
please, but the successive meetings
are known as common or garden
"dates." It is only the first one that
is known as a "Blind Date" (In
some parts of the Lower Siamese
peninsular and the mountainous re-
gions of Holland, some students in
this field report that what we have
referred to, above as a "Blind Date"
is known as a "Ruifu Knaju" or "Deaf
Date" and even, in extreme cases as
a "Dvaji Knaju" meaning "Dumb
Date" (reference to "Blind Dates" as
being "Dumb Dates are also found in
this locality, though they are not very
The origin of the term is very
slightly known though it is generally
believed that the "Blind" part comes
from the idea that neither party has
had a view (i. e. vision) of the other,
hence both are "blind" as far as they
concern each other.

A complete assignment of dates to
the dozen odd campus activities, with
all its complexities and conflicts, is
practically completed. Such a list,
perhaps, is valuable if only to prove j
at the outset the almost overpowering
activity of these organizations striv-
ing for your patronage. Its prnme
importance, however, is to bring
some order out of the almost hope-
less chaos by keeping everybody from
treading on all manner of toes.
The schedule in detail is as fol-
