By LOIS KELSO
The Michigan Technic, ever opening new fields to research and adapt-
ing new knowledge and discoveries to existing conditions, has again star-
tled the University with a daring departure from oiftmoded thought. An
article called "The Technic Reflects" should be of deep interest to all of us
who have fallen behind the Technic in its research in the field of English
This article is credited, (or otherwise, as the case may be), to a Miss-
McHigan. McHigan seems to be the pseudonmyn behind which any mem-
ber of the College of Engineering wishing to bare his or her soul in print
takes shelter, and who shall blame them.
Miss McHigan ostensibly is concerned, with the undesirable qualities
of the male Michigan engineer, but her remarks on this time-honored griev-
ance are far less revolutionary than her snytax, punctuation, and diction.
Close study of Miss McHigan's work reveals what seem to be fundamen-
tal precepts of her own system of composition. All adjectives must positively
be preceded by the word most, or possibly very. Repetition is, to Miss Me-
Higan, the spice of life. That sentence is incomplete which does not strike
the proper note of maidenly coyness with at least one "naturally," "of
course," or "but definitely."
Miss McHigan is also an ardent advocate of neology. During the so-
journ of her typical engineer at the Bell, he "noisily orders three or four
pitchers of beer, loudly exclaiming about how much beer he can hold." Later
in the evening "his remarks fall into a vein, the gist of which I shall not
Miss McHigan's most significant work is done in the fiedld of punctua-
tion. She apparently has a deep sentimental attachment to the comma, the
question mark, and the exclamation point, and a marked aversion to the
old-fashioned period. In a gargantuan burst of devotion, she has achieved
the remarkable phenomenon of a paragraph containing four question marks,
four exclamation points, and not one period. This is even more surprising
when one realizes that the paragraph contains only two sentences.
Miss McHigan's most significant work is done in the field of punctua-
ture, joined the two parts of a compound sentence with, not an archaic
conjunction or semi-colon, but a parentheses. This one has to be seen to be
believed, and here it is. "Just once they should taste the food which the
civilians have to down (the civvies are forced to keep their eyes shut to ac-
complish this great feat) !" The extra-parenthetical exclamation point is
If the Engineering English department has been teaching this sort of
thing on the sly, I feel that the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
should protest against unfair discrimination. We would like to get in on the
Pardon me while I go off in a corner and loudly exclaim about how much
I can stand.

Crowded Rooming Conditions
Now that many single rooms for
women students are being converted
into doubles to alleviate the housing
shortage, Michigan coeds face the
problem of living happily under more
Clever utilization of space and im-
proved habits of gro9ming offer an
effective solution. Those who were
accustcmed to a closet of their own
may now be asked to share one with
a roommate. When this occurs, in-
genuity and cooperation should come
to the rescue.
Remembering that ro one but Fib-
ber McGee ever brought any good
out of a cluttered closet, particular
attention should be given to this ar-
ticle. A basic "closet wardrobe"
might include a garment bag for sel-I
dom-used clothes, a hatbox, shoe bag
and skirt hangers.
Planning, when applied to closets,
means using every inch of space wise-
ly without crowding. The same holds
true for dresser drawers. For con-
venience, some women claim that
