dollar he spends in goods or satisfaction. It is hard
to believe that students should be less awake to a
sense of values than the average American.
The values of his amusements seems to be es-
timated, or he would not indulge in them. But it
is a characteristic of students in particular to ap-
preciate in ┬░very great measure a bolt or an ab-
sence from classes, and consequently it would seem
that the amount of satisfaction to be gotten out of a
class or quiz is outbalanced by that derived from a
bolt. This is hard to comprehend when fabulous
sums are expended. yearly by the government and
by individuals in education. In fact it would seem
incomprehensible that students should demand that
the work which they have missed by a bolt should be
made up at another time so as to receive full value
for their money.
It seems then, that the only thing for which the
American does not require full returns for his money
is in obtaining an education.
Now that negotiations looking toward the final
drawing-up of plans and contracts for the Demp-
sey-Wills fight are about at an end, the country may
settle down to a year or so of undesirable but clev-
er publicity. We will soon learn of the bravery of
Mr. Jack, who risked his life very recently to tour
the battlefields of France, and also of his prowess as
a camp boxing instructor, and of his many other
daring achievements, ad infinitum, all with the am
of a corps of publicity agents and too-willing sport
writers. "America is a sport loving nation."
Farmers' wives have at least as much to do as any
other women. ,For this reason, one farmer has sug-
gested that all men of his pursuit should be allowed
two wives. Wouldn't some legislation like this solve
the question of how to keep the boys on the farm?
A late dispatch from the center of activities in Ire-
land says that women combantants are raiding and
looting millinery shops. Surely, there is method in
their madness.
A Detroit newspaper last Sunday printed, "Dr."
Lovell's theory of evolution. Ha, brethren, Ann Ar-
bor scooped you on that story ten years ago.
A man looks at things from his own side, but
a woman looks at them from her own side and also
that of the mirror's.

fessors writing text-books.

A national grievance, plus a national ideal, plus
a group of young men with a normal arterial and
venal circulation, is the time tested formula for a
revoltion. Often times the grievance and the ideal
seem to be shaded, almost to oblivion, by the white
heat of the participants.
The latest protest by a portion of the Irish people
against what they have deemed an undesirable form
.of government, came to light in the form of a war
machine of one thousand boy power. Many of
,them were not even "boys," "children" would be
the word which would more appropriately fit
their averages and appearances. Many of them
were nmembers of a Boy Scout organization, while
a large majority were secondary school students.
,The remainder was made up of clerks, farm hands,
and a few youths of good family who had joined
the cause, influenced purely by patriotic ideals.
Decryi~ng a revolution for its purpose is a large
undertaking, and fully justifiable, but an unquali-
fied condemnation of an uprising because its par-
ticipants are young, ungoverned and unguided, is a
mistake which only a person completely ignorant or
forgetful of history would make.
Every national political volcano has erupted only
when the lava of young bood burst form its crater.
,French, Italian, English, Russian, German and Am-
erican, have entrusted the perils of transition to their
young men. The boys at Valley Forge were really
boys, scarcely one of them over thirty years of age.
The perpetrators of the "Boston Tea Party" might
have been upon a Hallowe'en frolic, if their ages
would count, but today we laud these ventures as
the forerunners of a worthy fight.
As the human machine becomes adjusted to a
slower pace with advancing years, we are prone to
reject that innovation which involves rapid change.,
but it will take more than the weight of mature
opinion to prevent youth from forcing his wares
upon the world, if given half a chance.
An old saying, "Penny wise and pound foolish"
generally brings to mind a person of measly dis-
position who holds a penny so close to his eye that
he cannot see a dollar just beyond it.. His acts are
motivated by a desire to gain for every expenditure
of time or energy even at the loss of another. But
in most cases such is not the attitude which most
Americans take toward a penny or even a dollar.
In fact their open handedness and willingness to
spend on pleasures and diversions has won for them
the name of the spend-thrifts of the world.
Students are very prone to spend not only on
amusements of a harmless nature, but also on pass-
ing fancies to an extent that would amaze one of a
thrifty nature. The amount of money spent on
soft drinks, movies, and other amusements such as
riding devices, would probably Tbe estimated to
clothe and feed one of the smallest nations, or at
least to educate a large number of the people who in
spite of the seeming availability of an education,
find it impossible to get one for financial reasons.
Then, it would seem that students would profit by a
little of this tight-fistedness which appears so entire-
ly lacking. A study of the American people dis-
closes the fact that they appreciate values as fully
as any people in the world, for it is noteworthy
that an American gets his money's worth for ever?

Remember that octogenarain wheeze about "vac-
