games can be seated directly on that
line or even very close to it. By far
the greatest number of seats in the
stadium are quite a distance from this
coveted spot. Science has not yet
discovered a way of crowding 50,000
people in the limited space to ten
Another occasion for discontent on
the part of the student body seems to
lie in the fact that strangers, out-i
siders, always seem to be occupying1
the better seats; people who are not
vitally interested in the team, who
do not feel the intense desire for a
Michigan victory that is characteris-
tic of a true son of Michigan, but
who "are interested in the whole af-
fair as a magnificient spectacle. Stu-
dents cannot seem to understand how
the spectators manage to get the best
seats, and since they do not under-
stand, they immediately jump at the
conclusion that unfair methods of
ticket distribution have been employ-
ed. But it must be borne in mind
that jumping at conclusions is a dan-
gerous exercise and one not to be
often indulged in.
Only a little thought will bring the
realization that these strangers, or
the vast majority of them, are parents,
relatives and friends of other stu-
dents or alumni. Every student has
a chance to get a number of extra
tickets and it is for these visitors that
the extra tickets have been obtained
The policy of first come first served
is used in this case and investigation
will show that there is no unfairness
to complain about.
. The new seating plan which goer
into effect this fall will give under-
graduates an opportunity to obtain
better seats than they formerly have
had. The cheering section plan ap-
ipears to be a good one and its tria
this fall will indicate just how much
.it will satisfy the student demand for
better seats. The fate of the plan
,rests in the hands of the students
themselves. Their co-operation will
make it work successfully while just
as much dissatisfaction as ever will
be current if the student body fails to



Dear Taman:
Can you help me out of a fix?
There are four men in my education
class that want to get their names in
print, and I said that I might be able
to help them. I was only fooling
about my pull with your paper, but
they swallowed it whole and prom-
ised me all kinds of nice things if I
would print them. Can't you use your


influence in 'printing their names.
They are awful nice, and cute, too,
and they promised me a present if I
would get them in. Please help me.
Their names are O'Leary, Phillips,
Cummings, and Garber, and they all
sit next to me in Education 101s
which meets at 8 o'clock in the morn-
ing under Prof. J. B. Edmondson. Per-
haps a word of explanation about
each might be interesting, so as you
will know that it is all right to print
their names. Mr. O'Leary is a French-
man, come to this country to 'learn
the language. Mr. Phillips is dark
and has nice eyes and a cute laugh.
Cummings and Garber are just sweet
Help me out and put this in.
P. S.-Cummings and Garber both
wear knickers and mustaches.
If it isn't too darn personel, Cyn-
thia, may we respectfully ask how all
four of those estimable gentlemen can
sit next to you? Sorry that the per-
sonal couldn't get in-that they were
all in class at once is unique, to say
the least. Wish you had sent in a

"Why sould any man who
writes, even if he writes things
immortal, nurse anger at the
world's neglect? Who asked him
to publish? Who promised him
a hearing? Who has broken
faith with him? If my shoe-
maker should turn me out an
excellent pair of shoes, and I,
in some mood of cantakerous
unreason, throw them back up-
on his hands, the man has just
cause for complaint. But your
poem, your novel, who bargain-
ed with you for it? If it is
honest journeywork, yet lacks
purchasers, at most you may call
yourself a hapless tradesman.
If it comes on high, with what
decency do you fret and fume
because it is not paid for in
heavy cash? For the work of
man's mind there is one test,
and one alone-the judgment
of generations yet unborn. If
you have written a great book,
the world to come will know it.
But you don't care for posthum-
ous glory. You want to enjoy
fame in a comfortable armchair.
Ah, that is quite another thing!
Have the courage of your de-
sires, admit yourself a merchant,
and protest to gods and men
that the merchandise you offer
Is of better quality than much
which sells for a high price."

9 Q


With the coming of fall and the
football season, the question of the
distribution of tickets to the foot-
ball games again becomes a matter
of discussion and dispute. The pro-
blem of distributing somewhere in
the neighborhood of 50,000 tockets for
each game in such a manner that
everyone will be pleased is one which
we venture to predict can never be
fully solved. It is human nature to
want the best of everything; and it
is also a human trait to raise a cry
of unfairness when the best is not
secured. The Athletic association, in
this connection, must be awarded a
word of praise for its valian efforts
to keep everybody pleased. Heaven
knows it needs the praise-the knock-
ers are always in the majority.
This, however, is not intended to be
a criticism of the way in which tick-
ets to the games are distributed; nor
is it a song of praise for the Athletic
association. The criticism is aimed
chiefly at the spirit shown by a great
many people, all ardent football fans
who yell loud and long about crook-
edness and unfairness in connection
with the allotment of tickets.
Those who raise this hue and cry
must realie first of all that there is
but one 50-yard line on a footbali
field and that only a small fraction
of the large crowd which attends the

The gathering of Boy Scouts from
all over the world in an international
jamboree serves to draw attention to l
Lieut-Gen. Sir Robert Baden-Powell,
founder of the scouts, or the chief
scout, as he is more briefly known to
millions of boys throughout the world.
He was born in London, Feb. 22,1
1857. His father was an Oxford pro-
While awaiting his entrance to Ox-
ford, he filled in time by trying an
army examination and, much to his
own surprise, he passed so high in
both infantry and cavalry papers that
he was attached to a cavalry regi-
ment without the usual two years at
Sandhurst and found himself at once
a full-fledged subaltern in the 13th
hussars bound for India.
From the point of view of the Boy
Scout movement the important thing
is that it was while serving with this
regiment he realized the ordinary
peace training of men for service in
,the field lacked training in individual-
ity and character. He therefore car-
iried out classes of instruction for his
own men on lines that were at that
time quite unknown in the army, giv-
ing them individual training is scout-
ing, observation, and- sampaigning.
t In the South African War, when, as
vdefender of Mafeking, Robert Baden-
Powell's name first became a house-
4iold word, he made a further experi-
ment-this time with boys. Under his
staff officer, Lord Robert Cecil, the
boys of Mafeking were organized as
a corps for general utility, with a
ing them individual training in scout-
'ing, observation, and campaigning.
In 1907 he organized an experimen-
tal camp for scout training, and the
following year the handbook, "Scout-
ing for Boys," was issued in fort-
nightly parts. Long before the series
was completed, patrols and troops of
scouts had sprung up throughout the
country and the movement was in
full swing. In 1910 it had grown so
that its originator left the army in
Order to take it in hand.
For the last 12 years every talent
he possesses, every inspiration of his
wonderful intellect, ( all his time and
hobbies and much of his small income,
have been devoted to the service of
the Boy Scout movement, of which he
qis the center.
In 1912 he married-and married
#,perhaps the one person in the world
who had the ability and faith to carry
pn the Girl Guide movement, side by
side with that of the scouts. Relieved
jby her of all detail work in connection
with this great organization, he is
,still its inspiration. They have three
jolly children of their own to "prac-
tice on,"

It was dawn when he awoke, and
within ten minutes he had register-
ed, classified and bought his emapus
tickets. The next day he became
managing editor of the Daily, and
took his seat in the Student Coun-
cil. After a week of indolence, he
accepted the lead in the Michigan Un-
ion Opera for the year, and had been
!elected captain of all the athletic
teams. The residency of the Union
followed soon, and he would have
been chairman of the J-Hop commit-
tee had not his youth in the Univer-
sity hindered him.
