SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 1927

There has been a great deal of dis-
cussion lately about "weeding out"
undesirable students from the stu-
dent body. That, no doubt, is a very
good plan, but it seems that there
should have been a fairly complete
definition of an undesirable student
presented along with the ideas for
eliminating such people. If one is to
form his conclusions from the ma-
terial which has been generally pre-
sented, he would infer that practically
the only desirable students were those
who went through school on an all
"A" average. Perhaps this is simply
a faulty interpretation of meaning,
but if it is correct, there is plenty of

If the Regents really ban autos, as
they may at their next meeting, you
can look forward to some interesting
times. We are only sorry that we
won't be here next year.
The logical thing to do is to also
ban the use of cars by townspeople,
for they are certainly potential acel-
dents, if there ever were any.*
And no students should be allowed
to travel on trains because they might
get hurt. Also the local bus com-
pany will have to go out of business
or at least restrict their patronage to
professors and townspeople - who
aren't important enough to bother
with, anyway.
When a man graduates from Mich-1
igan in the future he will have to
learn how to drive an auto. In order
not to throw our graduates out into the
world without any practical knowl-
edge what-so-ever, they, will have to
have a course in "Automobile Loco-l
motion, Principles and Practie,"
which will instruct students-underl
carefully guarded laboratory condi-
tions-in the art of being a modern
human being.1

it would be best to attempt to adopt

measures would suffice.

We wish to put forward a sugges-
tion that would take the place of the
new ruling which the regents may
adopt. All that is wanted is to stop
accidents, and if this can be done in
a more pleasant manner it would be

Perhaps the churches would object
to classes meeting Sundays, but this
could be avoided by turning Sunday

As for the additional expenses which
this plan would bring, we believe that
they would not exceed the cost of en-

a producer of ingenuous American
comedies resorted some time ago to a
play called "Pigs" by Anne Morrison

of cleanliness on the American stage;
and second, that "Pigs" became a
popular success that turned them
