To the Editor:

As a result of a series of inci-
dents this week I find myself con-
fronted by a dilemma, a situatioh
not paralleled by any in my nine-
teen years' experience as a skater
or eight years as a university stu-
dent. I hope some contributor to
your column will try to clear away
my difficulty.
I went to the University of Mich-


igan Rink Tuesday night, skated'
one length of the rink, and was
accosted by a man of pugilistic
type with the greeting, "Where the
H do you think you're going?"
I was conducted with unnecessary
force to the dressing-room, where
I was disappointed in my hope of
receiving fairer treatment. My es-
cort, whom a fellow-skater with an
"M" described as "a pain in the
neC," turned me over unceremon-
iously to Mr. Lowrey, late of King-
ston, Canada, who informed me
that my unmannerly captor work-,
ed there, which is all I know of
him except his command of thee
profane language, which is con-
sidered distasteful in the presence
of ladies by sportsmen and gentle.
I was told I had been skating too
fast and would have to stay off the
ice for the evening. I had not
heard of this regulation though 1
had already used more than two
books of tickets to the rink. How-
ever, I commenced putting on my

Night Editor-FRANK E. COOPER
It is the ambition of every fra-
ternity and sorority to see its own
organization forge ahead; conse-
quently, each seeks to have as
iany of its men as possible partici-
pating in University activities. In
most fraternities it is the practice
to tell. the freshmen of the oppor-
tunities awaiting them in athletics,
publications, and other campus or-
ganizations, but many, because of
inertia, fail to impress upon the
first year men the personal benefits
to be accrued from such work.
Student, publications, which of-
fer freshmen their first chance toI
participate in extra-curricular ac--
tivi'ties, play an important part in
University life and as such should,
be carefully considered by every-1
one who has any business or writ-
ing ability along the lines present-
ed by The Daily, Gargoyle, or the
'Ensian. Previous experience,
while desirable, is not essential.
One of the main objectives of the
publications is to develop inherent
abilities so that' the new men can
eventually take over the work han-
dled by. those more experienced,
thus insuring the continuation of
the organization.
When the older members of fra-
ternities see promising men in their
freshman classes, it is up to them
to discover the peculiar aptitudes
of the first year men and to dis-I
cuss with them the possibilities of
capitalising on these abilities in
one of the branches of student ac-
tivities.. .
Unfortunately, it is often the
case that the wrong type of men
are sent to tryout, with the result
that there are many misfits both in
publiciations, athletics, and other,
campus organizations. Selecting
the right men and encouraging
them to work in activities is an im-
portant task falling to the older
members of fraternities, for it is
apparent that the men left over
after football candidates have been
chosen are not likely tn h o-nnr
