to be. In his classes he finds a more
alert body of students-and to his
surpise quite a few of these are fel-
low "regular" students. Those who
are not, he finds, are usually older and
more serious people. These older stu-
dents, who are in the majority, create
an atmosphere which makes the work
seem much more vital. They ask
questions, start discussions, and have
such an aggressive attitude in general
that the "regular" student soon finds
himself borne along on the wave of
their enthusiasm and to his surprise
finds himself taking a new attitude
towards his own work.
It is not only in the classes that
he finds things more alive than he
had thought them to be. iHe reads the

ious points of interest near Ann Ar-

After about one week of summer
school he realizes that he is enjoying
it very much. The campus is pretty,
his classes are interesting, the warm
weather does not affect him as he had
believed it would, and he is always
able to find something of interest to
do during his spare moments. No

You have seen them in every news-
paper, they creep in once in a while
in spite of all care and precaution.
Misplaced slugs, are not welcome in
the press room and generally avoid-
ed. A misplaced slug is a line of lead
that is in the wrong place. It may
be up side down, or it may have lodg-
ed in the wrong place where it adds
nothing to the rest of the story-but
at any rate, it is misplaced. It means
nothing, it is in the way, it spoils the
paper, and it is a nuisance.
Many people in the world are noth-
ing more than misplaced slugs. They
are out of their atmosphere, where
they do not belong, do not fit, and
are usless. Somewhere in the news-
paper there is room for the misplaced
slug; in that place it is needed, if
it is not there you miss it, and as
you read your daily paper you wonder
what has been left out. In a like
manner, somewhere in the world there
is a place for the man who is not now
where he belongs, somewhere he is
needed, he is missed, and his services
would be of value.
The problem is to find where you
Misplaced slugs and typographical
errors are perniciously mean things
and generally to be avoided, but re-

scheme for making them serve a pur-

and a reward of $5.00 in gold is of.
fered to the first person who reports
a misspelled word in each installment
of the serial. With monetary prizes
attached to them, misplaced slugs and
typographical errors will not only be4
tolerated by readers of a newspaper
but will actually be in demand. Thus
a clever advertising scheme makes
use of that which was formerly use-
But the misplaced slugs of human-
ity can never be wholly useful. No
clever advertising scheme will create
a demand for misplaced men.
THE "REULAR" STUDENT IN
Attending a Summer session is a
unique experience for a student
whose knowledge of Michigan has
come only from associations formed
during the regular sessions. The
setting is the same-the campus, the
buildings and State street-but the
rest of the environment is entirely
different. There is a different "feel"
in the atmosphere, a noticeable
change in the personnel of the stu-
dent body. It is almost like begin-
ning college all over again in a

crowds on the diagonal between
classes. He misses the hundreds of
grey freshman "pots." The bustle

CAMPUS OPINION I
To the Editor of The Summer Michi-
During the first week of this Sum-
mer session we have had opportunityz
to gain much pleasure from the pub-
lic lectures which are given every)
evening on the campus. We suppose
that these lectures probably charact-
erize a Michigan Summer session as
opposed to the sessions held in many
other schools. Attendance at these
lectures is not required, but is purely,
a privilige, yet with this privilege as
with all others there are certain im-
plicit obligations. One of these is
that the conduct of a person attend-
ing the lectures should be that of a
gentleman, or lady. Such conduct
includes courtesy to the speaker. We
have noticed that so far a portion
of the audiences have failed in this
respect. Nothing is more annoying
to a speaker than to see his audience
gradually dwindle, before him. Not
only the speaker but the audience as
well is annoyed. Last evening dur-
ing a tense moment of Professor Hol-
lister's recital of "Silas Marner" five
women arose almost simultaneously

most led to doubt the external ap-
pearance of maturity and breeding
which these people exhibit. Is there
any excuse for such flagrant disregard
for the rights of others?
We hope that this will not be re-
garded as an unwarranted criticism,
but will be taken rather as a plea for
more considerate conduct on the part
of these people in the future.

IS CIVILIZATION A VENEER?
The great folloy of men and of na-
tions is the confident assumption that
what has happened to others cannot
possibly happen to them, or that the
course which has led others to de-
struction will, if followed again, ev-
entuate in a better ending.
Great empires of the past have dis-
appeared from the face of the earth
as though they had never been. Egypt,
Babylon, Greece and Rome are merely
The events of the past decade lead
many thoughtful people to ask whith-
er the course of our own empire? Is
our civilization a veneer after all, a
thin coating over the natural pas-
sions and cruelties of man? And, has;
it worn so thin that the end is in
sight and a new race and civilization
destined to rise and possess the palm
The course of empire has been
steadily westward. Civilization be-
gan in the Orient. It has now gone
round the world and pauses on the
Pacific coast. Will it cross the ocean
and take up its habitation where it
began so long ago?
There are interesting speculations.
Nor is there any warrant in history to
offset the probabilities of this very
thing happening. There is but one
way to avoid an ignominious end of
our own culture and supremacy.
That is through the unflagging effort
of those who are alive today. Civ-
ilization is not a spontaneous growth.
It is the product of assiduous cultiva-
tion. Left to itself, it will wither and
die among the weeds of savagery.
