TONIGHT IS THE night when the
famous Oil Can will be awarded to
someone. In the past the holders of
the trophy have been worthy of it
in every way and tihe next winner
will be just as worthy.

stated that almost any member of
the faculty has most of the qualifica-
tions for winning the trophy, but a
few, such as the past holders, have
outstanding characteristics.

haps tihe cracks will be limited to the
local candidates for the Oil Can.

ONE OF THE outstanding men for
the Can is assistant to the dean Em-
ery, but it is feared that certain
factions in the student party, backed
by the money of General Motors, will
oppose him.
THERE IS JUST one more story
we have to tell about that cowboy,
who makes everyone laugh. The other
day when we went to interview him
in tihe company of half The Daily
staff we went r to his room in the
Union and listened to him talk.

ABOUT A HALF hour after we
were there Dr. Tom Lovell, holder
of more degrees meaning nothing than
any college president, burst into the
doom and gave Will an autographed
copy of his latest book.

WHEN WE LEFT Will asked us
who he was. When the situation was
explained, Wifs explained, "I guess
he is locally, what I am nationally!"
"Yes," one of the staff said, "he's
a little cracked."

IT SEEMS THAT the Democrats
won an election recently in the great
city of Ann Arbor. Here it is, right
in the heart of Michigan, and the
Democrats won. Someone must have
stuffed the ballot boxes.

ONLY A FEW miles from here, in
Jackson, to be exact, the Republican
party was founded and Michigan has
voted for them ever since. These
Republicans must be getting careless

other night when they attempted to
show that they were the best in the
United States.
AND THAT REMINDS us that the
track team lost to Harvard a couple
of weeks ago. Don't worry, boys, just
wait until that old football team of
ours bumps into the dear old East.
By the time the Easterners have dis-

covered where the ball is the game
will be all over.
WE LEARN FROM Poison Ivy that
a certain law student stayed up all
night and walked around the town
to win a bet of $1.50. We'd hate to
bet him a dollar that he couldn't
fight the engineers alone. He probably
would try it to win the bet.

As usual, with the first twittering
of spring, poetry surges through th

day by the appearance of a new In
