To students who receive permits to
drive, and who drive cars for which
campus parking permits have been
issued: The Campus Parking Com-
mittee, which operates under author-
ity of the University Senate, has an
annoying and thankless task, in the
performance of which the Committee
asks your cooperation. Our duty is to
so administer the wholly inadequate
space for parking on .the Campus, as
to provide the maximum of parking
convenience for staff members, whose
time the University pays for. The is-
sue by the Dean to any student of a
permit to drive does not include the
privilege of Campus parking. When
the car is brought to and, parked on
the Campus primarily and essentially
for the benefit of the parent to whom
the parking permit is issued, no ob-
jection can be raised. But such use
must be justified in the light of the
agreement by the parent when he
applies for a parking permit, namely,
"The parking permit is for my con-
venience; my car will not be parked
on the Campus, by others than my-
self, for their convenience." In the
use of your driving permit, please do,
not violate the letter or the spirit of
the above.
Campus Parking Committee
-Dean of Students,
Christmas recess: By action of the
Regents the announced time of the'
Christmas recess has been changed
to the following: Christmas recess
begins Friday evening, December 18;
classes resume after recess on
Wednesday morning, December 30.
Classes will be held on January 1.
The above changes are occasioned by

transportation conditions during the
holiday season.
Fraternities: The action of the
Committee on Student Affairs modi-
fying the requirements for initiation
should not be taken as meaning that
all students who are eligible under
the modification must be initiated
immediately following December 10.

Electricity is one of the cheapest things the house-

wife can buy

because the price has been reduced so often and so much.

you probably haven't got an electric bill dated twenty-five years ago, but the records
show that electricity cost 5.87 cents then; and now it is only 3.16 cents. Almost
half price. There have been many rate reductions in twenty-five years.

Most other prices have gone up.

Food, clothing, taxes, trans-

portation. If your husband rides to work on the street car he may have heard that
twenty-five years ago he could have bought seven tickets for a quarter. In 1917 the

Detroit tax rate was $13.81-- this year it is $28.97.

I used to have an "Ingersoll

Dollar Watch" that kept fairly good time, but you can't get a dollar watch now. And
you know how much less a $5 bill will buy in rent, round steak or clothes.
The price of electricity is low. -If other things cost as little, the
cost of living would be half what it is.
