Three weeks remain until final
examinations for Athc first semes-
ter settle upon the campus. These
weeks, coming as they do just after
the Christmas vacation period are
alweys a temptation to rest. Un-
fortunately the tail end of the
semester is seldom one of rest V r
the large percentage of the stu-
Instead, there is usually a thess
or two to write and often a last-
minute blue book calls for extra
preparation. Prospects such as
these are never inviting and are
especially distasteful following the
holiday season.
Whether we hav made resolu-
tions for 1929 or not, it is not hard
to recognize the value and the nec-
essity of accomplishing a certain
amount of work at the outset in
1929. The old year, 1928, was a
good one for many of us. It is nast
now and may well be forgotten. Be-
fore us as a student body and ba-
fore us as a University lies the

ney year, 1929. May it be a year of
success and accomplishment for
every student and a year of achiev-
ement and honor for the University.
Not long after we returned to
school in the fall of 1928 The Daily
carried a banner head-line:
That was the first of the numerous
investigatins which started off
with much publicity, a great deal
of comment from various sources
on the campus, and gradually the
excitement dies away, to be re-
vived indirectly for discussion
which comes to no point. Nothing
much has been done other than to
throw a scare into those students
alleged to have participated ina
booze parties. And, then too, it!
may not be over.
Another head-line: ""STUDENTS
came to no end other than causing
a great deal of excitement in fac-
ulty circles Triue theie were many
plans proposed by the Student
Council and other committees, but
further than the first flare-up o
an investigation which was to be
startling in its results nothing
seems to have been done.
The townspeople of Ann Arbor

of the founding of the University
and decided that 1837 was right in
spite of the agitation of some mem-
bers of the Alumni body who want-
ed to age the University by chang-
ing the date on the seal. The in-
vestigation itself turned out all
right, but it didn't stop those de-
termined men who have decided
the University may claim to be 112
years old.
The Senate Committee and th
Student Cuncil have added to the
number of investigations under
way by concentrating their atten-
tion at different times upon the
violent initiation ceemonies of
Sphinx, graft en class committees,
class elections and campus politic:, C
and a system of deferred rushing tc
apply to fraternities. All have been
accompanied with pi.;blicity and
comment which promised exciting
results, and though some of them
have come to a definite course o
action, others have accomplished
nothing .that you can point to as
A little inv-atgation into the
business relations between Field-
ing H. Yost and E. E. Wieman came,
to an end when, after receiving al-
most nation-wide attention, they
claimed they had no disagreements.
Last and perhaps least of the in-
vestigations was the one sponsored
by members of The Daiy staff, pro-
posing to determine the effect of
influenza on the campus. Therej
was none.
Just summing them up it might
be said that coming to naught was
the most satisfactory ending for
most of them, but it is not to be
wondered at that after such ex-
plosions so.c people spent a great
deal of time trying to find some of
the remains. Perhaps they will
come down in 1929.
A phase of Michigan's athletic
program which is sure to come :r o
its own with the facilities of the,
new artificial ice rink at its dis-
posal is the activity of the hockey
team, long one of the lesser of ihe
University's athletic enterprises.
I Faced formerly with long periods
of thaw which made practices andt
games impossible, the team has
never achieved the place which it
deserNes in the athletic-mindedness
of the college community; and even
now several years are likely to
elapse before hockey achieves its
f rightful place at Michigan.
But the game is none the less
one of the fastest and most in-
teresting spectacles that the sport
world offers. Professional teams in
large cities have already overcome
the momertum of professional bas-
ketball as a winter sport, and it is
no rare occasion when 15,000 per-
sons gather to witness a contest.
That such enthusiasm is deserved
is more than apparent to anyon
who has witnessed a hockey game.
The; new Coliseum rink, com-
pleted this yar, offers an exce-p
tiona.ly fine arena for the Varstv
games. Thus far this year the team
has suffered two reverres, but with
regular practices and growing in-
terest it is almost certain that the
Wolverines will be able to take
their place beside the leaders in
this sport as in all other college
contests. The installation of a
scoreboard, would greatly help the
game from the standpoint of th:
spectators. many of whom are un-

familiar with the rules of ice
With this slight addition to the
plant, which will doubtiess be made
by the Athletic association, ther3
is no reason why hockey should fail
to take its place beside the more
popular of Michigan's sports. It is
almost safe to predict that before
many years have elapsed this win-i
ter sport will have outgrown the
Coliseum as basketball outgrew
