for an activity to which he was previously a stranger
but in the majority of cases he does not. For one
thing he does not wish to compete with freshmen or
even work on an equal footing with them. If he does
come to meetings or rehearsals or practices or what-
ever they may be he naturally gravitates to the older
members who are his classmates. Instead of doing
some work and taking an active interest in things
he becomes a mere hanger-on who knows everyone
of any consequence but never amounts to anything
And it is here that we wish to make our main
point. In the interests of these people -- and they
certainly comprise a very large group-the various
classes should concentrate more on intra-class func-
tions. Class dinners, class debates, class socials and
other such events should provide an outlet to the
energy of these hangers-on. Such activities, of course,
always go on but they should be stressed more than
they are both, as a source of present good and als'o
of future relationship with the university since it is
to his class that the graduate usually returns at
We are not preaching decentralization but we
would like to see more class functions. After all they
provide the most entertainment for the greatest
money -and what is more --they cost least; a tre-
mendous factor in this year of depression.

Though few of the people around
here seem to realize it, Michigan
won a moral victory over Ohio
State yesterday afternoon in the
purple twilight of an autumn af-
ternoon with the slanting rays of
the sinking sun settling softly over
the concrete mass of the stadium

were writting a theme.l

S FOOTBALL PASSING as the most popular
college sport? After viewing the past four
ichigan football games, we wonder whether it is
erely passing at Michigan, or in the collegiate
orld in general.
Past years have brought cheering crowds to
ichigan. Every spectacular play brought almost:
ery spectator to his feet. Banners were waved,
its were thrown, coats were torn in the delirious
y following atouchdown.
The recent games at Ann Arbor have not seen
y of this "football spirit." At the first three]
mes, it was almost possible to hear the gentle-
an on the other side of the stadium ask his
ighbor for a light. Even touchdowns brought
rth no show of spirit on either side. Yesterday's
ime was little better.
We wonder seriously whether the undergrad-
ite of today views his college athletics in the
me manner as his predecessor. Is it the depres-
on? Or is it the charge of "commercialism" that
any people attach to college football?,
There can be no doubt but what there has been
slump in football attendance this year due to the
pression. Nevertheless, although we do not be-.
ve in the "rah-rah" collegiate-ism, there should
some display of enthusiasm at a football gar-ie.
Supporters of five various football teams have
en in the Michigan stadium this year, to say
thing of high school students from many cities
the state who attended the first game. Yet not
ce this year has there'been anywhere near the
nount of enthusiasm displayed last year. So we
not believe that the condition is local. The
ual fight-talks, which add so much to the color
the game, are lacking. Are the public as well
the students getting tired of football, or has
e depression so depressed us that we have no
irit left? The Michigan team, whether cham-'
ons or not, deserve at least the support of the
ident body.
(McGill Daily)
It has become an annual custom for those who
ye survived several years in a university to tell
e newcomers what to do. Year in and year out
dergraduate publications sound their notes of en-
iragement and advice, professors sound their notes
warning and club executives send forth their notes
appeal for new members. As a result various fresh-
mn turn out for varied activities and as they gain
experience take over offices, hold executive posi-
ns and generally help to carry on the traditions
an active student body.
The freshmen who thus turn out for activities
rnish no problem. They gradually take their places
the various campus groups and take a healthy and
Live interest in their extra-curricular activities.
e people who do furnish a problem are the sopho-
res and juniors-and perhaps even a few seniors
who would like to turn out for activities but who

(Daily Kansan)
As a climax, to registration at the. University of
Nebraska, a news report states, all new students are]
required to sit for individual photographs, which are
a part of the identification card system used by Ne-
braska. And to this we might add: "Ha! Ha!" Not a
sarcastic outburst, but a "Ha! Ha!" just the same.
Perhaps to the novice, or to be more polite the
freshman, this might appear to be a good system, but
to those of us who have lost faith in photographs
and photographers through a multitude of experi-
ences, all we can add is "Ha! Ha!"
Now you take the photographs of the so-called
beauty queens of the University when they appear in
local newspapers. Everybody is astounded, the upper-
classmen particularly, with the amazing amount of
beauty, or should we isay pulchritude, that can be
found on the campus. But immediately upon looking
at the names under the pictures, we are not only
astounded but outright exasperated. To think that
any photographer would try to fool an l4onest stu-
dent body! The pulchritude in the pictures is amaz-
ing, but when you meet these so-called beauty queens
on the campus-well-you are rather disillusioned.
To us it seems preposterous to use this system of
identification. Not that we wish to condemn Nebraska
for using it; quite on the contrary, the Cornhuskers
should be complimented for having so much faith
in photographs. But after the many times we have
been fooled here, all we can say is "Ha! Ha!"
(The Daily Cardinal.)
We have heard many students say, they come to
the university to get an education, but we have al-
ways wondered just what the student, himself, had
planned on doing about it. The university, of course,
is interested in teaching the student, but the ques-
tion of how interested the'student is seldom lends
itself to discussion. Critics of education in the past
have, no doubt, overrated the university's responsi-
bility, and quite forgotten the student's responsibil-
ity, which must have a slight degree of development
before any system can succeed.
Floods of education are pourid over the heads
of students, but that does not educate them. Mere
listening to information does not educate one; mere
contact with educational forces does not educate one.
Something that concerns only the individual makes
him educated. ne university, the faculty, and the
curriculum can help; but much of it is really up to
the individual student.
We can suggest many things that the student
can do to fulfill his own desires. Numerous oppor-
tunities are being offered on the campus right at
the present moment, but not even a reasonable frac-
tion of the students here realize the opportunities
and make use of Che:;.
Our argument is not the old one of engaging in
extra-curricular activities to become educated. We
believe that extra-curricular activities make up the
rounded educated life of an individual, but that aca-
demic work has been disregarded for those things
on which students have placed more value.
We suggest a return to real sober studying. It is
up to the student, in the last measure, to get some-
thing out of the university. If he will only take part
in the many things that are offered him, realizing
the possibilities that these opportunities have in
store for him, and assimilate and reflect upon them,
we believe that the sophistical, care-free attitude of
the large majority of aimless college students would
be changed into an interested, wide-awake attitude
of intelligent human beings.
(Indiana Daily Student)
A Georgia man has been sentenced to die Oct.
23 for a murder committed ten years ago.
In ieturning a verdict of guilty of first degree
murder, the jury found that the accused man was
crazy, but specified that he should be executed
should he ever regain his sanity.
Whether one regards the capital penalty as the
development of the Mosaic "eye for an eye" code or
as a convenient method of removing the possessor
of criminal tendencies from a position in which he
could do further damage to society is beyond the
point. The point is that a person who is convicted
of 'a capital offense forfeits his life in reparation for
his crime.
Upon what ethical grounds is a person lacking
mentality exempt from his punishment for such a
crime? His victim is none the less dead because of
his murderer's insanity. The chances are that his

death was exceptionally cruel for that very reason."
Can insanitysbe of such rarity among us that we
cherish the insane murderer while executing the
sane one? Where is the logic in such a course?
Why penalize the sane?

Anyway, we maintain that Mich -
igan did win a moral victory, be-
cause the Ohio drum major dropp-
.ed his baton twice during the big
parade at the half, and the herder
of the Maize and Blue's dismounted
police didn't drop his at all, though
we thought he was going to when
he threw it over the south goal-
post. Boy, we surely heaved a sigh
of kelief when he caught it-that
was undo6btedly the turning point
of the game, as those slick fellows
over on the sports staff of the
Michigan Daily might say, in an off
moment, which seems to be the
only kind they have.

What's more, one of the Ohio
leader's fumbles came down and
hit him squarely in the face-what
a belt! Michigan had plenty of
help from the sidelines, too. The
cheerleaders were assisted Eby a lit-
tle boy, whom we thought had any
of them licked. Also, one of the
boys from the class of '11, '12, '13,
HIKE! Shift to the right, shift to
the left, came down to assist the
exhausted yell-mongers, who really
give their best to the old school,
and would die for dear old RUT-

no one can tell-if the letter is
written on Old Hampshire station-
ery-for it gives an almost presi-
dential dignity to the message it
carries. Whether your lter is to
the family at home, to some ofyour
tradesmen 'or purveyors-or to
your very best girl, Old Hampshire
adds a distinct tone, for it is rich,
substantial, smart-it has the rich
texture, the crisp crackle of the
truly aristocratic paper,



Ohio won the toss and chose the
south goal. President Ruthven hit
into a double play, Newman, to
Hudson to Hewitt, and out, what
we mean out! Williamson leads
with his left, and Nassman retali-
ates with a right jab to the referee
as the gong sounded ending the
round. Newman skates the ful
length of the field on his snow-
shoes only to lose the puck behind
the netting. Time, out, while a
small brown dog is carried off the
field. Nice game, dog! Or was he,
too, wanted in the press-box? We
are seriously offended. We were
the only ones, as far as we could
see, who did not get called to the
press box. We just bet that peo-
ple pay for all that free advertis-
The game resumes. Governor
Brucker takes the ball on an off-
tackle slant, being tackled by Mor-
rison. Dean Bursley is stopped at
the line of scrimmage by Morrison.
Hinchman taking the ball through
the line, is stopped by Morrison,
this time. (Editor's Note-Whiat is
the idea of having Morrison make
all the tackles?) Buzzard--(Mor-
rison is the only one that made any
all afternoon, as far as we could
see. Anyway, it's his own idea, isn't
it? And furthermore, keep outs of
my column, you dill! )-End of the
play-by-play, as the typewriter
1 broke down (and wept). .1
Well, we got one consolation out
of the game, anyway. Last Tues-
day, we .got optimistic and bet
three suspender buttons and one
phoney penny on Michigan. On
Friday, we got scared and decided
to hedge, so we bet a penny and
two suspender buttons on State. So
we, too, scored a moral victory, and
got a good penny for a bum one.
We are not seriously hampered by
the loss of the suspender buttom, as
we wear a belt.
What do you know? We practic-
ally saw a fight. The fellow who
parked his car next to ours in a
parking lot came whipping up af-
ter the game and flew into a high
dungeon of rage-well, dudgeon,
then. Anyway, he found the rear
fender of his big sedan all smashed
in. He called the poor fellow run-
ning the parking lot the nastiest
names you have ever heard-well,
they were the nastiest names we
have ever heard. Then he turned
around to inspect the damage, and
found that the car wasn't his af-
ter all. I beg your pardon, said he,
smilingly, lighting a well-known
brand of cigarette.
