'"What am I that I am called
upon to have prejudices con-
cerning the universe? It is high-
ly probable that there are gods
some sort or another, but I do
not so far flatter myself as to
think that any god would be in-
terested in my poinion of him.
In any event, I am Demeros."
-James Branch Cabell.j
Beginning a chapter in his story
The Duel, It is observed by Jospeh
"No man succeeds in everything
he undertakes. In that sense we
are all failures.
"The great point is not to fail in
ordering and sustaining the effort of
our life. In this matter vanity is
what leads us astray. It hurries
us into situations from which we
must come out damaged; whereas
pride is our safeguard, by the re-
serve it imposes on the choice of
our endeavor as much as by the vir-
tue of its sustaining power."
The world judges Joseph Conrad,
howevr, not by what he undertook,
for that he alone knew, but by what
he accomplished. Hence in the eyes
of the world Conrad was a great suc-
cess and his loss an international one.
It was his fortune to die in the plent-
itude of hs fame, pre-eminent as the
first active creative artist of his time
For years Conrad gave himself com-
pletely and devotedly to his high and
constant aim. "To me," he once wrote
"writing is extremely laborious, and
I have often risen from my desk at 2
o'clock in the morning after a long
night's labor, more exhausted than
after my hardest day's work on ship-
board, and I have done everything
there-carried bags of wheat, shoveled
coal into the furnaces and performed
all the other severe forms of physical
labor that are part of the routine of
life aboard ship-to find that I had
completed only a thousand words. "
Hard work though it was, it war
not in vain. His thousands of friends
and readers prove that by following
him over unknown seas and rivers,
across archipelagoes, through jungles
and forests, and into, the many strange
scenes with which his books abound.
Much has been said about Conrad's
marvellous accomplishment, complete
mastery of a language that he did not
begin to learn until he was over 20;
much hs been said of his unsurpassed
style, hfs understanding of human
psychology, and his all-prevailing
sympathy with nature. Let critics of
the coming generation pick the fSaws
in his writings and discuss his merits
and demerits as an artist. But let his
friends and readers mourn him as a
lost companion and teacher.
"My task which I am trying to
achieve," he wrote some time ago, "is
by the power of the written word to
make you hear, make you feel-it is
before all, to make you see." And that
task he nobly achieved.
, A POPULAR MISCONCEPTION
To the Editor:-
In his letter of August 2, 'regarding
the editorial on Socialism which ap-
peared in the Daily recently, it seems
to me that Mr. Brown goes too far1
in citing the Russian experiment. No
one will disagree when he says:
"While not completely satisfied with'
present conditions, the American vot-
er prefers the status quo in America
The socialist ideals, however, are'
not those of the Russians. If the so-
calists shared all the Russian ideas,
they would be communists, not social-
ists; and as such, they would not sup-
port La Follette. Much too often the
socialists are inaccurately character-
ized as communists.
Asatheeditorialsstates: the social-
4sts are backing La Follette because
they consider him the most progres-
sive candidate. Hillquit, the New
York sd ialist, defines a progressive
as "one who has a definite program
'of economic and social reform, the test
being the positive, constructive char-
acter of such a program."
Moreover, the editorial, It seems to
me, pointed out that La Follette is
not a socialist. Nor is his movement
a "radical" one. Without party ma-
,chinery, it is, however, a protest
against out two major parties which
are sadly lacking in identity. In this
'connection, I recall the following de-
finition which recently won a $100
proze (offered by an Eastern newspa-
per-perhaps the Baltimore Sun?):
"A Democrat is one who thinks
the Republicans are bad for busi-
ness i a Republican is one who thinks
the Democrats are bad for business;
both are right; both are wrong."
Many Democrats as well as Repub-
licans are bolting their parties and
,will vote for La Follette. The Social-
:st backing should, therefore, not be
any more of an obstacle than such
Democratic or Republican support.
This old country of our must have
a lot of lives. A few of the things
,that have killed it in the past year
have been bobbed hair, short skirts,
modern dancing, cigarets, strikes,
rouge, and prohibition. And now a
southern revivalist says, "Jazz is going
to kill the country, slowly but surely."
Maybe there is nothing to the old
prophesy that the world will be con-
sumed by fire.
KNOW THE CAMPUSf
THE NEW LITERARY BUILDING
The new Literary building is a mas-
sive structure of cream stone built
on the Renaissance type with the
front formed and upheld by eight Ionic
columns each weighing 75 tons. The
plans provide for 44 classrooms and
lecture rooms, with a seating capacity
of 4000, and rooms for 58 offices. Th
offices of the dean of Literature, Sci-
ence, and Arts, Dean Effinger, and of
the dean of the Graduate school, Dean
Lloyd, will be the only dean's offices
in the building. They are to be situa-
ted on the first floor. Most of the oth-
er offices will be on the upper floor.
The first three floors will maintain
the classes in English, rhetoric, class-
ics, semitics, political .science, mathe-
matics, geography, public speaking,
and astronomy. On the fourth floor
the School of Business Administration
will hold forth. One wing will be de-
voted to the Modern Language socie-
ties and four rooms have been set
aside for the use of the literary so-
cieties. Space has also been planned
in the other wing for the location of
two of the smaller telescopes of the
astronomy department to enable the
students to gain some experience with
the instruments without going to the
observatory itself., These plans are
set for the near future, but at present
the roof has been made water-proof.
Besides the bureau of statistics,
which will be maintained by Prof.
James W. Glover, of the mathematics
Vand insurance department, there will
,be a bureau of government in connec-
tion with the work in political sci-
. The structure as it now stands in
300x70 feet and has been built at
an approximate cost of $1,050,000. in
-addition to $100,00 for the equipment.
Because of the enormous amount of
.constructing being carried to comple-
tion, it has been necessary to erect a
new power plant, which will be com-
pleted by fall. It reaches 250 feet in-
to the air and is the tallest stack in
PRIZE SHORT STORY
(Editor's note-Olaf has recovered
from the sadly injured foot which tied
up his last work, and has produced
for us a work of the highest sort-a
perfect marvel of the author's pro-
Huns Hanson, or What You Will I
Now it came to pass long ago that
a youth of three and twenty summers
and as many winters lived in the
little seaport town of Zcvbnmasdf on
the rock bound coast of the Scandin-
avian peninsular, and the name of the
youth was Hans Hanson. For several
years, altogether 24, Hans had lived
in Zxcvbnmasdf, and he had grown at-
tached to the place in more senses
than one. His long attachment was
;to be severed, however, in a manner
unknown to himself and unguessed
by others. What was his fate to be?
Hans had, as had most boys of his
;tender years, a father and a mother
They raised him carefully, as should
all good parents, and as he grew to
manhood, his mind became formed In-
to that of a righteous and an upright
Iman. He was a splendid figure of
the human animal, standing six feet
five and one-half in his unmention-
ables, with a crop of curly blond hair
topping a strong face set on a thick
neck which rested upon broad should-
ers surmounting a torso of rugged
build which was supported by massive
legs-prostyle peristyle peripteral en-
closing-but I digress.
With the first appearance of down
upon his swarthy cheeks, he felt a
great urge. He could not identify the
urge, but it was none the less great.
,It troubled him for long months-even
years, and then at last he discovered
that the great urge was the urge of
education, and he turned his back at
last upon his birthplace, and took
passage for America.
Now when Hans had reached Amer-
ica, he went straight to his Uncle's
home in Minneapolis, and after stay-
in gthere a week, he followed the ad-
vice of many folk who told him to
pack his carpet bag and go to Michi-
gan to the great University located
at Ann Arbor.
It was a bright and shining day in
September when he hailed a Red Top
(Adv.) and was whisked away to his
rooming house. He met the land-
lady who said something like: "Five-
aweek-payinadvance." He gave her
.five dollars and went to bed.

Daily on Saturday.
PIECES OF EIGHT
(Editor's note-This little parting
lecture is addressed esecially to those
fair teachers who have been our
guests during this past Summer ses-
sion-May they be blessed!)
Dear Teachers-You will soon be
returning to the fair hamlets from
whence you sallied forth, seven weeks
ago, in search of further knowledge to
impart to the rising generation (may
they all grow up to be called Mr. or
Madam President of something or oth-
er, because you know the experience
is so broadening.)
But as was' remarked, you sallied
forth in quest of knowledge, and what
have you found. Here, on thb sam-
pus of the Greatest University in the
southern-central part of the-state you
have found a group of bloodthirsty
feminists demanding that the world
in general and the University of Mich
igan in particular is cruel, terribly
.ruel, to the poor, lonely girl who
unsuspectingly finds her way through
the portals of the Ann Arbor station.
You have found this one-sided con
troversy, and you have laughed. At
least we hope you have laughed, 'cause
Prof. What's His Name says that such
going's on are enough to make any
normal human being laugh.
And as you leave we hope that you
will not carry with you a bad impres-
sion of the eager and ambitious man-
hood of our campus. Yea, further, we
hope that you will not consider these
who have furnished us with plentiful
material for our Opinions column a-
representative women of our cam-
In parting we hope that you have
enjoyed your short stay on our cam-
pus as much as we have been dis-
mayed by the way your scholarship
boosted class averages, and that you
will come back again, or at least don't
send us any of your militaristic fem-
