WHEN CRITICS FALL OUT
On another page of today's issue of The Sum-
mer Daily will be found a communication which
takes exception to the criticism which appeared in
Friday's issue of "The Melting Pot," as produced
by members of the class in play production. The
writer of the communication contends that the critic
was entirely wrong in his review of the performance,
although she does declare "in my opinion the rendi-
tion of this play was one of the best." The com-
munication is a matter of opinion, just as much as
The Summer Daily's criticism was an opinion. In
the matter of the writer's contentions that she was
pleased with the play, no differences can arise, for
the columns of The Summer Daily are always open
to expressions of opinion.
But there is no substantiation for the statement
in the concluding paragraph, in which it is claim--
ed that inasmuch as dramatic productions on the
campus are works of effort, they should be com-
mended and encouraged. Criticism of this char-
acter would be negative in effect, for a review
which praises at all times, whether the cause justi-
fies the honors or not, is more destructive than no
review at all. It is granted campus organizations
generally work hard, but to pat them on the back
when they are deserving of commendation would
be of more harm than benefit. To do so would be
flattery-ard flattery is the arch-enemy of suc-
GIVE IT TO 'EM STRAIGHT
When students return to their home town after
the Summer session is ended, they are invairably
asked what sort of time they have while at the
University. Many of them are inclined to relate
exciting tales of their experiences during periods of
gayety and lightened' responsibility. They feel that
their friends expect to hear stories of this nature,
and in response to this feeling, they tell only of the
"colorful" side of their college days.
Of course there would be no advantage in the
student complaining of unfortunate circumstances.
But it is a great mistake for him to tell only of a
few "parties" which fit in with the general story-
book conception of college life. When the student
is asked about his experiences here, he should paint
the true picture; he should mention the fact that all
is not play at a great educational institution. It is
all too easy to convey the wrong impression of a
University through careless descriptions of college
*THE SUMMER SESSION PROGRAM
A survey of the lecture program of the Sum-
mer session cannot but cause a feeling of satis-
faction to those who have taken advantage of it,
and a feeling of regret for those who have not done
so. The program has been especially well worked
out from the stand point of variety of subjects andl
also from the excellence of their presentation. The
subjects have covered almost every field interesting
to the students of the Summer session as music,
religion, sociology, economics, astronomy, geology,
politics, the sciences, geography, dramatics and edu-
A university audience is as a whole a critical one
and the favorable manner in which the summer's
program has been received indicates that the lec-
tures and entertainments have been successful. The
excursions with the exception of those to Put-in-
Bay and Niagara Falls, which are a new feature of
this year's program have been- an important feature
and one which it is hoped will he continued in the
The Summer session program is on the whole
most commendable and has filled its purpose as well
as was expected.
Ohio State is already in a fever of excitement in
anticipation of her game with Michigan in the fall.
It is claimed, however, that a sudden shock will re-
History repeats. Certain conscientious professors,
it is rumored, are following tradition by doling out
heavy last-minute assignments on the eve of finals.
The All-A student says that he has already packed
his trunk and bought his train tickect. And the lone'
frosh pipes up, "I don't C how he does it."
O Lords of the unions and the rails, be gracious to
the children of the Summer session and settle your
strike before Friday the 18th.

THROUGH AMERICAN HISTORY ON ROIL.
III: The Mexican Altercation
The Mexican war was a mere squabble between
two Texas gentlemen over the amount of heat in
hot tamales. Both disputants were later sent to
IV: The un-Civil War
The Civil War, the United tSates' fourth war of
consequence, was fought between the two political
factions of the country. It was the result of party
avaricity as to who should get the Nego vote.
During this war there were two great battles,
(f which the Battle of Gettysburg was the most out-
standing. It was fought between Lincoln, Robert E.
Lee, and the 25th congress.
Bull Run, the other good battle, was named after
a race in the 1890 Olympian games. During the
course of the battle the Union commander gave
voice to that well known gen of thought, "A rolling
stone 'gathers no moss."
