I should like to suggest that The
DAILY modify its democratic policy
of accepting all Campus Opinion
contributions on the score of their
odor; if not intelligence. When our
friends laugh at Michigan for its
inclusion of nitwits in quantity, we
grant their existence but point out
their practical isolation from the
intelligent element on the campus.
Since The Daily is the product of
this element, I see no reason why
it should be embarrassed with a
false obligation to gratify the veri-
est oafs with the publication of
their illiterate clowning.
The latest case in point is one
Carmichael's cheap bid for fourth
page publicity in yesterday's Daily.
Of course, such a one's verbose
stupidity answers itself, and three
or four times, but for one thing, it
dispels the pleasant illusion' tha
we produce publications for more
than a few people of any taste. In
the extremely improbable event
that even the Engineering school
should contain a gull for Car-
michael's sorry humor, I will say
out of sentimental regard for our
ugly duckling cover that lacquer-
ing is superfluous Since we paid the
*manufacturer to waterproof it s

G. A. Dusenbury.
Dear Mr. Carmichael: Gee whiz
you just exploded all over the edi-
torial page, didn't you? And sev-
eral months late, too. I know a lot
of people who don't like the cover
of the new 'Ensian but they had
sense enough to know that even an
indignant letter in The Daily
wouldn't make it possible to collect
all the copies and send them back
to the bindery' to be rebound in the
good old standard cover of imita-
tion leather embellished with cam-
paniles, muscle-bound athletes and
the like. Just imagine, Mr. Car-
michael, sending back eight and
one-half tomes of 'Ensians to the
printers, marked "N.G.," "White
elephant," and "This looks like a
butcher's supply catalog." J u s t
imagine it!-
You remind me, Mr. Carmichael,
of a friend of mine who went into
the kitchen of a large hotel and
'ordered a special omelette. He stood
around and watched the chef beat
up the eggs, pour them into a fry-
ing pan on the fire. He stood around
and watched, mind you. Then when
the omelette was finished, and
garnished with parsley and served
in a clean white dish, this friend
of mine got up on his hind legs
and bellowed and ranted and raved
and said it looked like a butcher's
supply catalog until the the chef
was practically overcome w i t h
nausea. It was an awful silly per-
formance, Mr. Carmichael.
I can't help feeling, however, that
your suggestions for other uses of
the canvas cover are excellent. You
said it might be made into oat bags
for horses. Why don't you take two
or three 'Ensian covers and make a
large nose bag and slip it over your
head, Mr. Carmichael? You could
cut holes in. it for your eyes if you
wanted to, but I gather from your
letter that you'd rather not see
anything anyway, especially the
'Ensian cover., Perhaps you'd just
better leave the nose bag intact so
none of your low growls would seep
out and reach the sensitive ears of
the editor, who might break down
and cry.

Your lacquer idea is good, too.'
You ask, "Why can't each student
march downtown and swap a couple
of dimes for a can of it, along with
a new brush, paint it carefully over
the sailor's leggings part of his
book and when it is dry carry it
home satisfied that he can wash it
off when it needs it?" Well, Mr.
Carmichael, I've interviewed sever-
al paint store proprietors in town
and they all agree' that the idea is
great and that they will be glad
to help out the students. So you
need not worry on that score. Each
student CAN march downtown, any
old time he wants to.
But anyway, Mr. Carmichael, if
you consider your 'Ensian. a "white
elephant" and would like to dis-
pose of your great burden, there
are a score of students would be
glad to pay you well for your copy.
Students who-know a good thing
when they see it. So there's no need
of feeling hurt, Mr. Carmichael.
