The strong-willed man is one
who is able to master his mind
to the extent of repelling those
images which would smother
the thought that he wants to
keep uppermost in his brain.
Sustained in this way by a
resolute effort of attention, the
difficult object ere long begins
to call up its own congeners
associates and ends by chang-
ing the disposition of the man's
consciousness altogether.
And with his consciousness,
his action changes, for the new
object, once stably in posses-
sion of the field of his thought,
infallibly produces its own mot-
or effect.
The difficulty lies in obtaining
that field. Though the spon-
taneous drift of thought is all
the -other way, the attention
must be kept strained on one
object until at last it grows, so
as to maintain itself before the
mind at ease.

the United States is impossible. July
7 was the first time that riots didn't
occur around the ballot boxes.
The students attitude may be ex-
plained by first the lack of college
activities such as athletics, publica-
tions, dramatics, etc., in which the
student may devote his energy and
secondly the temperament of the Lat-
tin type which is a suspicious one by
nature and, when idle, a dangerous
one. Youthful scepticism runs to
politics and fiery soap-box orators re-
sult. -
A large fragment of glacial scratch-
ed limestone, estimated to be 60,-
000,000 years old, was presented to
the University in 1918, and mounted
in the oval between the Natural Sci-
ence and the Chemistry buildings.
The rock was found in Sibley, Mich.,
about 13 miles south of Detroit. It
was quarried and presented to the
University by the Solvay Process com-
pany of Detroit, through the efforts
of Mr. J. W. Foley, general manager
of the firm.
The speciman is a relic of the Dev-
onian age and is supposed to have
been deposited in the sea which cov-
ered Michigan during tlat( period.
According to Mr. Frank Leverett,
ITormer member of the U. S. Geological
Survey and now lecturer in the de-
partment of glacial geology in the Un-
iversity, the rock was smoothed off
by glaciers about 25,000 years ago.
In the same oval stands a rock
which is a, conglomerate of the cop-
per-bearing formation. It was shipped
here from the Keweenaw Peninsula,
Lake Superior.

Summer sessions have increased in
popularity in American universities
and among American students; but
American universities are not alone in
offering summer courses. In Europe,
at some of the most famous of the con-
tinental universities, summer courses
are being offered this year. A com-
parison of the studies offered, both
as to range and subject matter, re-
veals the fact that European universi-
.ties offer fewer courses than the
American institutions of learning, but
that the courses offered at some of
the ancient seats of learning in Eu-
rope are far more thorough and go
into greater detail.
In Cambridge, we are told, the main
study for the summer will be Egypt-
ancient, medieval, and modern. A
course is also offered in English lit-
erature with "special reference to
great writers who have been educated
at Cambridge."
At Oxford, the History of the Mid-
dIe Ages is offered, a course designed
primarily for teachers. At the Uni-
versity of Liverpool, Spanish is the
main subject and this course ends in
a tour to t~he north of Spain.
In France the range of studies isl
somewhat wider. French summer
schools are attended by a great many
foreigners and accordingly at the Un-
iversities of Besancon, Dijon, Gren-
oble, Nancy, Clermont-Ferrand, Lille,
Poitiers and Strasburg courses that
deal with French life, literature, his-
tory, and art are stressed.
The University of Leyden in Hol-
land opens its halls to Americans for
a series of special lectures on sub-
jects designed to "foster ties of mu-

Whether or not the power of the ed-
itorial page is waning is still a moot
question among newspapermen. Some
editors feel that their paper is not
complete without its quota of editor-
ials, while the attitude of others is,
"Editorials are never read, anyway,
so why take the time to write them?"I
We are inclined to believe that they
might be read more if they were
generally shorter. We feel that con-
ciseness is as much a virtue in edit-
orials as in news stories and that theI
short editorial will catch and hold the;
eye when the longer one, because of
its formidable appearance as a great
mass of type, will discourage the pros-
pective reader. Just to test out that;
belief we have purposely made this
one short and it would be interesting
to,know how many read it before they;
did the longer one which precedes it,

Dear Taman:
Today I paused on my way through
Tappan Hall, and heard remarks com-
ing through an open transom, sound-
ing like a class in motor language:
"If I had such a tire!" * "How the
wheels become it" ** "Time shall
teach me speed" *** "I would not have
any engine" **** were some of the re-
marks. I opened the door to go in'
and try to sell my car, but it was a
class in Shakespeare appreciation.
Now I ask you.
The remarks were in reality quota-
tions from the immortal bard, and
appear as follows:
*From "Two Gentlemen of Verona."j
*From "hamlet."
* From "King John."
****From "The Tempest."
