the registration blank which ask for information as
to whether one attends church "at all" or as to regu-
larity of worship.
Secondly, although the students are urged to
answer the two questions on the registration blanks,
relating to church, it is not compulsory. Thus a fail-
ure to answer can hardly be interpreted as revealing'
an absence of religion.
Thirdly, I believe that you are confusing religion
with theology. This is a common error today. Be-
cause one doubts certain dogmas set forth by certain
theologies, he is said to doubt religion./ I have been
studying student case-histories gathered by the psy-
chology department and most of the questions asked
by students are concerning theological differences.
The general appeal of your editorial is to be com-
mended, but I cannot allow your poorly derived' as-
sumptions to pass unchallenged. Perhaps these
assumptions are true; however I insist upon a better
source than incorrectly-interpreted answers given on
the registration blanks. Rollin J. Fairbanks.

CONTRIBUTORS'
WEEK
Much to our astonishment, there
were three or four really good con-
tributions this week. We're awfully
sorry, but we left them all at home
in our pocket, but they'll appear
all in due course. We wish to thank
the contributors in advance for
their assistance in the' terrible job
of getting this column out twice a
month. It's no joke-as some of
you may possibly have noticed.
a a l a
The news of the week is head-
ed by an article about the J- !
Hop. It seems that they have
sold as many .as four or five
tickets already, and, having
sucked in all those who readl
the advance dope on the thing
by telling them it would only
cost seven dollars, they are now
raising the ante to eight. There
are more business minds on
this campus t h a n we had
thought. Of course, those who
made dates during the vaca-
tion could write and tell their
damsels that the raise in price
was too much for them.

To The Editor:
In the death of Thomas J. Kneebone. engineering
students of the University of Michigan have exper-
ienced a loss more singularly irreparable, I believe,
than would be that of any other member of their
faculty.
His genuine sincerity, overflowing good humor and
~patient kindliness won the good-will and respect of
i every student in his classes. This welder of iron who
never wore a cap and gown had that rare faculty,
which too often bears an inverse relation to the num-
ber of degrees the instructor possesses, of recogniz-
ing his students not as so many automatons to' whom
A's, B's, C's, D's and E's were to be distributed ac-
cording to the law of averages, but as individuals
quite as distinct as himself.
Students of Mr. Kneebone learned not only to weld
iron but friendship as well. He was one of the few
who could speak on the street to any one of the hun-
dreds in his classes. Not once during the semester
I 'was under him did I ever see him become impatient
at the awkwardness and mistakes of the students-
instead he was so eager to see them do well that he
could scarcely ,refrain from taking their work to
finish it himself.
Other men may easily be obtained to take Mr.
Kneebone's place at the forge (although none can
weld a neater joint) but not so easily to supply the
good cheer and encouragement that always radiated
from him. Shop courses at Michigan never will be
the same again. W.

We don't want to be nasty about
it, however, because, when you come
to think of it, anyone who can
bring a date to the J-Hop can af-
ford an extra dollar or so. There
iseven a possibility that one could
save money on the affair by mak-
ing a sob-story out of the added
expense and getting the date to
cut down a bit on the fancies and
fripperies usually attendant on
such occasions.

To The Editor:
Your information that approximately thirty-three
hundred students on this campus have little or no
religious fervor is indeed astounding. Equally so was,
your editorial "Students and Religion."
Of the sixteen hundred who absolutely do not
attend church, it states, "Too often however, these
individuAls think little or nothing of their pseudo-
religion during the week and when Sunday morning'
comes around they have no incentive to worship .. ."
Are you bemoaning the fact that these students are,
not hypocrites as so many;of your church-goers are?
Are you anxious because these students want to be
the same on Sunday as every other day in the week?
Whether they love or hate, lie and cheat as some of
those who do attend church, do you condemn them
for not wanting to fake themselves and a God?

It will please a large number of
our followers to find that the Rolls
Artist is about to get back on the
job with his poignant sketches of
prominent campus buildings, peo-
ple, and fertilizer heaps. It will
please us even more on account of
every ,icture means so many less
words for us to write. His first ef-
fort for the year is one which we
are sure everyone will enjoy. We
don't quite know what i is, but
everyone will enjoy it anyway. We
do remember his murmuring some-
thing rather indistinct about hav-
ing it represent the mental work-
ings of the student council, but we
couldn't quite catch the connection,
the picture being so neat and or-
derly and all.

We wish right here to take off
our somewhat worn headger to the
Detroit Papers for the discrimiria-
tion they have showed of late in
their newsgathering about, Ann Ar-
bor. Bob Clancey, the Sophomore
Cabaret, and the late fiasco in the
debating circles where a number
of Campus publicity hounds con-
sented to judge a perfectly silly and
unnecessary debate have formed
the leading news articles by which
the press of Detroit intends to in-
form the world of, what goes on at
Michigan.

Theological Confusions>-
Edito:

offering of the war years, the brutality of the German
military machine and the helpless suffering of the;
French army is portrayed in an extremely stupid
fashion.
Baxter is the melancholy sergeant in charge of a
tattered and beaten fragment of a French detach-
ment, captive in a prison camp under the command
of the cruel Captain Ebling (Ralph Aellamy), and
Alexander Kirkland is the equally me ancholy and
somewhat whimsical officer of the German army

The last-mentioned business
was in somewhat, questionable
taste, to be sure, but the blame
for having it publicised rests
rather with the members of the
University than with the pa-
pers. The Sophomore Cabaret,
however, was a horse of a dif-
ferent propeller-pitch: The only
paper which did not play that
up as a prime juicy scandal was
the Daily Mirror. That's the
way life it apt to be.,
