for more than 25 years. When football
is occupying such a place of import-
ance, Michigan is fortunate in stand-
ing, as she does, for football that is,
clean, for magnanimous winning and
cheerful losing,-the game for the
game's sake-the Yost system of
The recent ruling of the Law fac-
ulty in eliminating attendance records
in that school has received the whole
hearted approval of the student body.
The ruling does away with the old cut
system entirely; role is not taken, and'
the matter of being present is left to
the individual student. It is stated
by the law school faculty that the step
was taken in accord with the general
policy of putting the work on a grad-
uate basis, thus allowing the student
greater freedom in his study.
Harvard law school has long main-
tained such a policy. Until recently
seniors of higher scholarship rating
in the Harvard literary college, as
well, were allowed to use their own
discretion in the matter of attendance.
Within the past few weeks, all seniorsI
in good standing have been permitted
the same privileges. Last week, Yale(
university extended a similar freedomf
to those seniors of a certain rating.
The abolition of attendance in the
medicine and divinity schools is also
The question naturally arises as to
whether the same policy would be
found practical in our own literary
college. Under the present system of
almost mass education, it would seem,
reasonable to allow such freedom to
only those seniors whose scholarship
and reputation show that they have a
real interest in their scholastic work.
(To those who come to the University
for social reasons, and it must be ad-I
mitted that there are many such in
our midst, such freedom would only
be misused.
It might be suggested that pivi-
leges be extended gradually, as wasI
successfully done at Harvard and
Yale, to those of sufficiently hight
scholarship. If such a plan should{
be found workable, and doubtless it
would, further freedom could be ex-
tended to the remainder of the senior
class, or upperclassmen in general.
Perhaps by that time selective on-
trance requirements will .have re-
moved the educational parasites, thus
giving the new policy a fairer trial.
Anonymous communications will be
disregarded. The names of communi-
cants wail, however, be regarded as
confidential upon request.

What friend Rollo needs 'most these'
days is a pair or rather two pairs of
ice skates. IHe does all the skating
we want him to now but he never
seems to be able to keep going
straight. Must be the Eustachian
tubes or something. Maybe if he had
the skates he'd do better.
People iniss Effie just terribly. Let-
ters have come pouring into this office
day after day inquiring about her. So
therefore to help the postmaster out
(he is pretty rushed just now, what
with report cards, Valentines, and
whatnot) we sent up a special cor-
respondent to Flyspeck, Mich., where
she is living, and we gleaned the fol-
lowing from the local journals:
Flyspeck, iMich. (By special dis-
patch to Molls from the Flyspeck
Concentric, with which is combined

retaining positively the worst features
of each). Miss Effie Snorp, popular
Flyspeck debutante and winner of the
1911 contest to determine the, mostI
beautiful girl in the towns of Flyspeck
and Eggspot, was interviewed yester-
lay on the reasons why she did not
attend the J-Hop, premiere social
event of the 'University of Michigan.
"No, 1 did not go to the Hop," re-
plied Miss Snorp. "You know, of
course, why I left Ann Arbor. I was
gel ting so much publicity. My beauty
and popularity, I suppose it was. Then
too, I felt slighted because the boys

cation, I was asked to so many affairsI
that I lost lots of sleep and almost
fifty pounds. But my main reason for
not going to the hop was that some-
how I wasn't invited. Of course, I
couldn't go clown there and fo r e Iny-

quiet life. She tried out for tte F7'ly-

It is the general American fashion
to call attention to the birthday an-
niversaries of our country's greatest
men. It is the tradition of the press
to comment upon these men, pointing
out their virtues and perhaps over-
hooking their faults.
How different with the birthday of
LAncoln! So little can be said which
conveys anything of his true and elu-
,,ive simplicity. When one attempts to-
write of him, words seem dull, inef-
f'ctive, and inadequate. Yet genius
has never yielded to analysis and
probably never will. Perhaps it was
in his supreme humanism that his!
genius flowered, yet who can say?

Plays which were written nearly'
two hundred years ago by that most
remark'able of Danish writers, Ludvig
Ioiberg , lave been coming of late
years into favor with large audiences
in Denmark, and even appear in a fair
way" of becoming immortal. Though
having written all manner of books
on fnance, law, and history, Holberg
is chiefly remembered for his com-
edies, of which his "Beggarman," in
the translation by Professor Oscar
James Campbell, will be given its first
American performance by the Mimes,
February 23, 24, and 25, in the Mimes
Holberg's plays are the direct out-
come of his own experiences-the
enormous variety of manners and peo-
ple which he observed in his travels
throughout Europe, and of his own
disposition strangely compounded out
of erudition and a curious interest in
his fellow man. One must know the
events of Holberg's life to thoroughly
comprehend the full import of his
dramatic works.
Ludvig Holberg was born in 1684 in
the city of Bergen, Denmark, a me-
tropolis which had long been onq of
the trading centers of the Hanseatic
League, and which in the seventeenth
century was of a decided cosmopolitan
nature. Holberg spent much of the
time of his young manhood in seeing
the world. At different times he visit-
ed the Netherlands, Oxford, London,
Leipsig, Dresden, and Halle.
On his return to Denmark he be-
came a "professor extraordinary" in
Borch's college. From that place he
departed in the year 1714 for his
fourth journey abroad, this time a
walking tour through southern and
central Europe. It was this unusual
viewpoint colipled with his own desire
for learning and culture, and his in-
nate propensity for realism, that the
peculiar character of his plays may be
Most of his work was done in later
years, after he had become a full pro-
fessor, at the time when certain citi-
zens were looking toward the estab-
lishment of a national theatre for
Denmark. le finished five plays in al-
miost as many months.

generation affairs, but it is treated
from' a little different point of view.
Tom, Junior, thinks he could make
more money in his father's broom fac-
tory than his very successful father,
by being pleasant to everybody where
his father is grouchy. He tries it for
a year and finds it doesn't work. The

only benefits are that he learns his

Walter Sherwin is the most con-

care whether he succeeds or not and
that he is all for him, that chokes up

A few issues ago we promised to'
wage a campaign for bigger and
cleaner sidewalks. But it just struck
us that if we were to wage such a
campaign we would have to know
whom to wage it against. So we ask,
"Who owns the Sidewalks'?"
It is quite apparent that the house-
owners don't, for no matter how- im-
maculate a local home may be kept,
no matter how neat the lawns or clean
i the windows, the sidewalks are never
cleared of snow, slush or anything
lwhich fate happens to cast upon them.
Obviously, then they are not owned
by the residents. At least they will
not admit that they do. If they are
owned by the city, then why not have!
them cleaned like the streets? If to
the county or the State, then the same,
holds true. If the pedestrians own
them, then why not have certain "Toll,

walk along them and the nioney goes]
toward keeping them clean.#
