members of the editorial staff of the Michigan Daily.

Learned Indian
There happened to be only four
white children in town, so his edu-
cation was far from the traditional
one. His playmates were all Indian
boys, from whom he learned much
of the ritual and tribal customs. He
even picked up several Indian dia-
lects, but he says he has long since
forgotten most of them.
When he was six he saved the lifei
of an Indian playfellow who was
drowning in a river. The grateful
tribe gave little Joe a beautifully
wrought tom-tom, and the chief in-
ducted him into the tribe as a blood
brother to the other boy.
Trained On Drums
So after that the best drummers in
the tribe took it upon themselves to
train young Sanders, teaching him
all the tricks of their trade. He
learned from each his specialty andI
added them together, so by the time,
he was 14, he "knew more ways ofI
beating a tom-tom than any three
Indian drummers put together."
When he was nine his parents
added piano lessons to his musical
training, and at the age of 11 he

This all-around young man went
into baseball and proceeded to es-
tablish a world's record for strike-
outs, 27 in nine innings, and then!

billiards champion of Kansas City.3

There was a board dinner for members of the junior and senior staffs
of The Daily last night and everyone, except when he was eating-which,
we might add, was the most naturally-done thing of the evening-was pass-
ing around a good deal of that peppy chatter and bon mot talk which one
reserves especially for board dinners. All of this doesn't seem to be getting
anywhere, and come to think of it, it isn't; however, what we're really trying
to work in here someway is the subject of clich6s--a form of
conversation which is particularly fascinating to us.
There were plenty of them last night-enough to get
people started talking about them, but not good enough to
make you feel that now there is a cliche that can stand on its
own feet. What we like are the good old ones like, "Well,
New York is a marvelous place to visit, but I wouldn't. live
there if you gave me the place," or "Well, I always say he's the kind of a
professor that you either like or you just hate." Gems like those don't come
up in ordinary conversation. They have to be watched for and treasured
and cherished.
Since it's sort of hard to watch forand treasure stuff like ordinary con-
versation, and especially since a lot of times you're the one who gets caught
in the trite bit, why not take up our favorite indoor sport-watching for
well-worn phrases in the movies. It's harmless-a vegetable compound
guaranteed not to be habit-forming, and besides, think of how the movies
are your best entertainment.
When we were at the cowboy stage--as though they still aren't our
favorites-we used to have perennials that turned up in every other film
and gave us that warm feeling around the heart or something. The best
and the surest bet was, "There they go, boys, over the hill; I'll take the short
cut and head 'em off." But up in the front lines, fighting for position, were
the "Stranger, you better git a-movin' or this town is goin' to have more
dead bodies than it can afford to bury," or "This town just ain't big enough
for the two of us."
Drawing room films are no slouches, though, in the fight for member-
ship in the Cliche Club. A caddish lad tells the heroine that she must give
up her husband or he will tell the poor fool of her past life. She looks up,
tearful-underlip trembling; she says-you can say it with her if you're
fast--"You're asking me to give up the ofily happiness I've ever known."
You may then settle back in your seat. You were frightened for a moment
that it wouldn't come out. The warm feeling starts around your heart, again.
"I thought our marriage meant more to you than that!" "There's a
wall between us, Bill, that nothing can break down." "It's no use, Jim; we
just don't see things the same way." "Why didn't you tell me instead of
letting me think-letting me hope-" Cliches all, and here's to more of 'em.
We're plenty against all movements to eliminate them, by gad. They're the
only things that save most of the movies.
