Three lusty cohorts of Michigan,
isolated like an island in a sea of
empty seats, staged the most
frenzied, most abandoned, most up-
roarous pep meeting of all time last
night in Hill auditorium. It was
the only pep meeting in the history
of Michigan at which the audience

shock of a cold shower or a five-

"tomorrow would see in action a
Maize and Blue team on fire." It
was a hot speech.
One distinctive feature of the'
meet was the fact that there was
one cheer leader for every student.
This was a great forward step in
the movement for individual educa-
