orientation week has passed away
and the more earnest business of
imbibing culture begins.I
Now having been appropriately
didactic, may we again express our
wish that your tenure on this cam-!
pus will be pleasurable, but not mis-
directing, and successful in accom-
plishment, without being potential-
ly chauvinistic.
INVESTIGATORS INVESTIGATED
Just censure has been the result
that Senator Gerald Nye, of North
Dakota, has reaped upon himself
because of his investigation meth-
ods into the expenditures of candi-
dates for the senatorship from Il-
linois. He has announced that he
will stick closely to financial lines
in the near future, instead of em-
ploying shadowers to shadow shad-
owers in an effort to find out se-
crets that do not exist.
That Senator Nye is seeking per-
sonal publicity rather than facts in
this case seems fairly clear from
the statements that he and his op-
ponent, Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCor-
mick have man~e. He has taken
upon himself more powers than
were originally granted him, he has
caused no little fun to be poked at
the dignity of his fellow members,
and has earned for himself merely
derision and scorn.
That money must be spent in
campaigning for literature, postage,
traveling expenses, headquarters.
and a million other items is quite
evident. But when an account of
these expenditures is submitted in
regular order, there seems to be no
motive to question the honesty of
that report. Senator Nye might
better inquire into such elections as
the recent one held in Louisiana,
where kidnapping of two witnesses
against one of the candidates was
charged, and where Gov. Long, who
eventually received the nomination,
kept his state militia at all polls to
"guard his own interests." In such
a state, where charges and counter-
charges are continually flying, Sen-
ator Nye would be in heaven with
his shadowers and trackers. But,
perhaps he would be better off
grinding an organ, as has been pre-
dicted.

(Statements appearing in this column repre-

Michigan Daily.)
TO 1934.
Perhaps every incoming college
generation has suffered more acute-
ly from the iass of platitudes and
moralizing which too often clothe
messages of greeting and addresses
of welcome than would justify an-
other in these columns. Yet with-
out trepidation for appearing to
increase the currency of Freshman
Week advice, we bid you welcome
and venture a most sincere hope
that you will find in Michigan's re-
sources the achievement of your
ambitions.

Within the coming fortnight, all
parties involved in the deferred
rushing embroglio will have a, taste
of what fruits the abolition of
Michigan's "cut-throat" , rushing
system will bring.,.. For the first
time in more than fifty years, a
distinct change has been made in
the historic and gradually evolved
rough and tumble race to put
pledge buttons on the most prom-
ising rushees. According to a de-
mand elicited by the administration
through the Interfraternity council,
no rushing will be carried on during
the Orientation Period; all ap-
proach maneuvers and contacts
with prospective pledges must wait
until noon. Saturday.
Meanwhile, the sixty fraternities
on the campus, harried by the ne-
cessity of pledging twice as many
men this year in order to carry
them over the rocky road of a rush-
ing season next year completely de-
ferred until the second semester, are
straining at the wire in readiness
for the start. In effect, the partial-
ly deferred rushing season has

WELCOME!
The Rolls staff takes this oppor-
tunity to extend its hearty greet-
ing to all and sundry who have
arrived in town for the first time
to commence their careers as pe-
destrians, teetotalers, and pursuers
of knowledge in its higher forms-
not to mention its other forms -
and wish them all success in their
undertakings. It also seems in or-
der to add a few suggestions to
those given in the Handy Helping
Handbook for Fearfully Flustered
Freshmen.
mens* * *
SUGGESTIONS
1. Beware of people who sell
things.
2. Beware of people who don't
sell things.
3. Beware.
In addition to the above hints
it might be well to give a few bits
of miscellaneous information that
have direct bearing on the activities
of the next week. After that you
will be either dead or acclimated,
with the chances strongly in favor
of the former.
* * *
Firstly, it is highly desirable to
avoid all expeditions that promise
to end up anywhere in the vicinity
of the Library. The library trip
only serves to fill your mind with
lot of things that you didn't want
to know, and besides, if they did
teach you how to get a book out of
the place it wouldn't do any good
because the faculty has had a whole
summer to change their text books
in, and the library won't catch up
until after mid-semesters after
which about half of us will confine
our reading to travel folders, and
the rest will be reposing in the Un-
iversity Hospital. Avoid also intel-
ligence tests. You can never tell
when they'll get one that works-
One thing more to avoid-Fresh-
man Week.
-For the benefit of such as may
be in ignorance of the fact, I shall
demonstrate that there are no poets
at Michigan. Witness the follow-
ing:-
A freshman was heard to re-
mark
That college was merely a lark
To his sorrow he found
When the mid-years came
roundI
That it was a horse of a differ-k
ent gear-ratio altogether.
It occurs to me that some may
experience some slight difficulty in
finding their way about our fair
city,. I therefore have, with the aid
of the Rolls topographical expert to
do the drafting, and the Rolls Pher-
ret to find out where things are,
composed the following map of the
campus. Unfortunately I have been
unable to get it labelled in time to.
go to press, but this is really un-
necessary anyway, because it is all'
right down therebefore you in
black and white, and if you can't
find a thing that is right in front
of you like that, all I can say is
that you deserve to miss all thej
lovely lectures, that have been pre-
pared for you with so much thought
and effort. So there!

Just another word of warning-
All professors believe that Fresh-
men should be seen and not heard.
All Sophomores believe that Fresh-
men should not be seen. And what
do I think? Oh thank you so much
Mrs. Johnson! I think Freshmen i
should not be.
It has been suggested to me
that one thing more needs a
little clearing up before the be- c
ginning of the merry whirl.
This is the matter of registra-
tion. There are several schools r
of though on the question, not
the least popular of which is
that which advocates entering
the registratorium and seizing e
on the nearest bottle of ink and
swinging the same rapidly "
about the head with extracted
stopper. This is both more ac- u
curate and convenient than the L
usual method of trying to figure
out what your grandmother's a
pet fieldmouse died of. The sole o
objection to this system is that e
ink costs money. Another group(s
