One Game From
A National Title .. .
M ICHIGAN IS NOT hanging up a na-
tional or even a Big Ten champion-
ship this year as she did last year, nor is she com-
ing anywhere near it. But the students of the Uni-
versity are making a record of their own this year
in a matter closely connected with football - that
At the peak of gridiron success when enthusiasm
should have been at its height, student cheering
was entirely unsatisfactory. Probably it can be said
that a championship team does not need, though
it always appreciates, the vociferous support of
students at games. However, it can never be said
that enthusiasm does not play a large part in
determining the spirit with which a team, espe-
cially a°losing one, will face an opponent.
It is in this regard that Michigan is working
for another championship. The students this year
have evidenced in many ways their support of the
team. The cheering has been greatly improved,
growing stronger as the season progressed.I
Large numbers of students have met the team on
its return from out-of-town games. In all parts
of the country Michigan students and Michigan
men are getting a reputation as good sports who
have not deserted a losing team-- a reputation
more valuable than that of constantly turning
With the team facing Northwestern in its last
game of its worst season in more than 40 years,
there could be no greater opportunity for a loyal
student body to send a confident team into the
game and cheer it on to the greatest efforts of
which it is capable.
Let's cinch a national title for school spirit.

Co-eds at the University of Minnesota have
refused to accept the position of co-ed cadet col-
onel in the R.O.T.C. saying that Minnesota has
been lauded throughout the United States for
abolishing compulsory drill and that they would
not be a part of a backward movement.

This means the co-eds do all the "dating." They

A group of graduates from a Chinese uni-
versity started an English newspaper and
gave the following announcement as to its
course of procedure:-
"The news of English we tell the latest.
Writ in perfectly style and. most earliest.
Do a murder commit we hear of it and tell
of it. Do a mighty chief die we publish i
and border sombre. Staff has each been col-
leged and write like the Kipling and the
Dickens. We circle every town and extortionate
not for advertisements."
The Purdue Exponent lists the following rules
for campus dates:
1. No dancing on the ceiling.
2. Don't hang feet out of the window.
3. Don't boo chaperones. ,
4. No re-cuts - you fathead.
5. Don't get lost in the wiles of the lounges
unless you brought her.
Famous last lines: Once there was a sorority
that never talked about anyone.

sounding wallop on the professor's jaw.

To Fighting Hundred.
D EPENDING ON HOW one figures it,
the Varsity Band may or may not
be 75 years old this year. The best authorities
seem to agree that it is, and so, if it wished,
the band could very appropriately celebrate its
ripe old age.
The musical organization of six men that began
to function in 1859 was whimsically called "Les
Sans Souci." An old sepia photograph of this group
hangs in the band rehearsal room in Morris Hall,
forming the first link in the chain of evidence
as to the band's illustrious past.
Much of the early data on the band has been
lost, and appeals to alumni and others have failed
to elicit desired information, but from what is
known an outline of the band's history is presented
in today's Alumnus.
The band began to play at football games in
1897, according to one account, though only par-
tially recognized by the athletic association. Prob-
ably Chicago was the longest out-of-town trip it
had made before 1914, when it went down to Har-
vard and startled the East. George Olsen, nation-
ally-known dance orchestra leader, is credited with
being the one to invent the stunt of throwing
his baton over the crossbar.
Now, having gained official recognition as a unit
of the University in 1913, the band is fully appre-
ciated as. one of the most important activities
connected with University life. Its membership is
kept at approximately 100, with a staff of a
dozen men. It is called upon not only to play at
football games but on every other imaginable occa-
In the Middle West, where college bands have
swollen to tremendous sizes, there are many which
outnumber the Fighting Hundred, but few if any
that can either out-play or out-maneuver it.
Wherever it has gone it has been popularly feted
and acclaimed, not only by Michigan men but by
others as well.
When 9,000 men and women are enrolled in
one big university, there are few interests common
to all. If there is any one group that can be
called the greatest rallying force of all, that group
is the Varsity Band. Perhaps nothing, not even a
winning football team, is so capable of making the
average Michigan student feel his loyalty for the
University as the band marching into Hill Audi-
torium on a pep meeting night or leaving the
football field on the swell of "The Victors."
Whether it be fully 75 years of age or not, the
To the Editor:
With your permission, we, the editors of Ad-
vance, would like to inform the campus at large,
students and faculty members who have shown
interest in our first (November) issue, and those
who were unable to purchase a copy because of
the sell-out of the issue, of our plans for the
December issue. To all who are potential contrib-
utors to our literary and critical monthly, which
is interested in fostering a literature which is
anything but divorced from the forces which mo-
tivate society, we would first like to offer some
A small news article appearing recently in The
Daily told of the large amount of contributions we
were receiving. The impression it gave was that
we had so much, we wouldn't be interested in any
more for some time. This is not so. It is true,
that material for our December issue, which will
appear the first Monday of the month, for a cam-
pus sale to last a number of days, has- already been
chosen. We are already making plans for our
January issue, and there is plenty of space for
many new contributions. The deadline for the Jan-
uary issue is the last school day of the year. We
have received some contributions anonymously,
or signed with pseudonyms, but with no indi-
cations as to the identity of the author. We are
willing to print such material and attribute it to
whatever name signed, but, for our own protec-
tion (against plagiarism and other technical mat-
ters), we must know who the real author is. We
shall be forced to throw out all contributions
that do not meet these requirements, regardless
A word about our December issue, and we shall
close. We promise an issue superior in quality
to our last. Our choice of contents for the No-
vember issue was guided by a desire to show typical
material, and we were thus forced to postpone
other material that was comparatively better writ-
ten. Not that we are in any way ashamed of our
first issue. On the contrary, we are proud of it.
And we are also proud of the University students
and faculty who aided in its success by buying out
the complete issue about 10 hours after it was
put on sale. Featured in the December issue is a
story by K. Ratliff, author of that very fine essay,
"Production," printed in the November issue. There
will be other stories, a number of analytical essays
of the contemporary scene, a number of poems
by students of this school and others, and many
items of interest to all. And all for the nominal
price of a dime.

As Others See I E
A MAN is judged by his friends; a student is
judged by his books.
And yet the proprietors of the cafeteria news-
stands have seen fit to erect in a public and con-
spicuous campus location a magazine rack filled
to overflow with such choice journals as Bill
Barnes Adventure Stories and War Aces.
The Scholastic does not, for a moment, insinuate
that the reading of these magazines signifies a
depraved taste. They may, although we think it
highly improbable, provide excellent relaxation for
intellectuals. The common consensus of opinion
is, however, that, while Bill Barnes may be fit
reading for a coal-heaver, it is hardly fit reading
for a university student.
Many freshmen come to Notre Dame with the
idea of throwing aside their Bill Barnes and taking
up Harper's. Upon seeing the display in the cafe-
teria, however, their resolution to expose them-
selves to some worthwhile reading is shattered.
In high school they had to hide Bill Barnes in
their desks; at Notre Dame Bill Barnes occupies
a prominent space in the only magazine rack on

There is no subsitute for the services of an eyesight

conditions for prolonged periods frequently suffers more

occupation is of a type that places a burden on your eyes,
it will pay you to check the lighting carefully.

1WITH a dozen-vote shortage of the two-thirds
majority necessary for ratification of the St.
Lawrence waterway and power pact facing him
in the Senate last March, President Roosevelt
merely said it would be re-submitted. Now, with
his hold on the Senate vastly strengthened by
election results, the President"s enthusiasm over
what he saw and learned in his new Tennessee
valley tour, plainly forecasts that re-submission
early in the coming session of Congress.
Despite the solid two-thirds control of the Sen-
ate by his party established in the elections, ratifi-
cation of the St: Lawrence treaty is not by any
means a mathematical certainty. Twenty-two of
42 votes against the treaty were cast by Democrats
last March. All still are in the Senate. Two of the
14 Republicans who voted for the treaty then, Fess
of Ohio and Robinson of Indiana, have been re-
placed by Democrats. Dill of Washington, another
treaty supporter, also has been replaced by another
LACKING DIRECT STATEMENTS of the atti-
tude of these Democratic newcomers, it seems
that the pro-treaty group probably suffered no
election losses. It might appear that some net
gains for the treaty were to be expected out of
defeat of so many of- its Republican opponents. A
half-dozen of them surrendered their seats to Dem-
ocrats. Yet, judged by how their colleagues, in
many cases Democrats, voted last March, there
might be no change whatever in a new Senate
Goldsborough of Maryland, for instance, went
out in favor of Radcliffe, Democrat. In the March
vote, however, Tydings, Maryland Democrat, en-
thusiastic Roosevelt supporter on almost every
other measure, voted "no" on the St. Lawrence
pact.,The same is true in the change of a West
Virginia seat. Hatfield, defeated Republican, voted
"no" on the treaty but so did Neely, hold-over
Democrat. Where will the new "baby senator," Holt
of West Virginia, be found?
In Missouri the same situation exists. Patterson
defeated Republican, and Clark, hold-over Demo-
crat, both cast "no" votes. In Connecticut, Wal-
cott, ousted Republican, and Lonergan, hold-over
Democrat, were both lined up against. In Penn-
sylvania both Republicans, Reed, now out, and Da-
vis, hold-over. were against the treaty. Where
will Guffey, Democratic newcomer, stand?
0BVIOUSLY, PRESIDENTIAL confidence last
March could not have been based on expecta-
tion of any such victory as his party achieved in
November. It was not on an expected election,
