(The Christian Science Monitor)
Youth, of all the estates through
which mortals pass, is alone peren-
nial. It requires no juggling of time
or memory, therefore, for the other-
wise sedate graduate of the eighties
to translate himself, at this season of
class reunions and college home-com-
ings, from the environment of more
serious years back to the atmosphere
and scenes of the old campu. To
some who make the journey, long or
short, the adventure is an unusual
and experimental. one. Always in
June the call has come, but it has
been seldom answered. Pressing
business or professional engagements
have a way of interposing themselv
es, and reunions can always be post-
poned. But, when: the time arrives
for the graduation of sons or augh-
ters from the same hall that provid-
ed so imposing a setting a third of a
century ago, the impluse is too strong
to be resisted.
No one knows the new graduate so
well as the old. Much has been writ-
ten and said in recent years which
might convince the casual observer
of what is referrd to as the "decad-
ence of youth." The old graduate
who is honest with himself will prob-
ably be the first to demand from those
who proclaim this theory a bill of
particulars. He will call attention to
the fact that in his college days the
same concern was manifested. Then,
as now, invidious comparisons were
made. The perils of thriftlessness
were pointed out and perhaps magni-
fled. There were impassioned appeals
for a return to the ways and customs
of the fifties,
It was no more possible for the
graduate or undergraduate of the
eighties or nineties to hold back the
innovating tide in his day than for
those of today to cling to the old and
despise the new. The "old grad" of
today is convinced now, just as he
was convined in his college days,
thathe was pursuing the way of what
he regarded as progress. He may not
have convinced his elders and ment-
ors of this. He may not now be con-
vinced thatthe ways of .today are bet-
ter or safer than the ways of yester-
day. But if he has gained anything
by experience, he has learned that it
is as useless for him to attempt to
change the order of things as it was
for his solicitous counselors to shape
his course. as an individual.
Youth has, upon its side, a convinc-
ing and irrefutable argument. It is
that in all things civilization is pro-
gressing. Now this, it must be admit-
ted, it not merely accidental. Civil-
ization cannot progress except as the
thought and aspirations of individuals,
represented .in the mass, progress.
Alarmists and the prophets of evil are
never silent. Today, as in all the
days, they are warning of what they
profess to see as the evil times to
come. But despite this, it is pleasant
and reassuring -to believe that the
world is growing better, that its peo-
ple are more considerate of one an-
other than ever before.
It is in all these things that human
thought and human aspirations are
reflected. The leaders and exponents
of this thought are not the uneducated
and the untrained. They are those
who have been taught, by some pro-
cess, how ,to think, and to think a-
right. The college, popularly, is the
great melting pot. It has never ser-
iously failed. Today the "new grad"
meets the old. His eyes are fixed on
the future, and they are filled with
bright purpose. The somewhat more
sedate alumnus will not disillusion

him. There is no reason why he
should. " He himself has proved the
worthiness of his equipment. He
realizes, also, that there is need to-
day, as always, of courage, enthusi-
asm, undaunted determination, and
above all of unselfish devotion to the
great cause in which the recruit, un-
hesitatingly enlisting, stands shoul-
der to shoulder with graying veteran
of a third of a century of construe-
tive warfare.

We nominate for the Rolls Hall of
Fame Jo and Metta Zilsh because
neither of them have attained -great
meit as artists or impressarios or
authors or critics, but because they
are real American folks and don't put
on airs.

Daily Dissertation
During the past summer (long
past) it was the policy of Rolls to
conduct a Daily Dissertation about
once a week or so or whenever the
time seemed auspicious. This policy
will be continued under the present
regime. Be it known that the dissert-
ation pretends not to humor.
On Friday, Michigan played Ohio
State university in baseball. (news
item). Being at a house party we
miffed on down to Ferry Field at the
proper hour and drew nigh unto the
gates. In' our pocket reposed the
coupon book issed by Mr. Yost bear-
ing our name and style, and in our
ginch's pocket book reposed her cou-
pon issued by the same gent and
bearing her name and style. We pull-
ed up at the 'gate, as we have said,
and hauled out the diminutive yellow
"Coupons ain't no good today," says
the person at the gate. "Buy tickets
at the window."
"How much?" says we.
"A buck," says the gent, discourte-
We went to the Maj.-(Adv).
It wasn't so much the two bucks-
we could have borrowed that from
our ginch. It was the principle of
the thing. Michigan's Varsity base-
ball team, composed wholly of stu-
dents in the University, were playing
a rival Conference team. The cou-
pon books, paid for in the general
fees paid by all students, are reputed
by announcement to admit students
to all Michigan athletic games. But
here was a poor, hard-working stu-
dent and his girl friend turned down
cold. We wonder just what the Ath-
letic association is trying to get away
with. Stadium propaganda to the con-
trary notwithstanding, the odor pro-
claims something long since defunct
in the State of Denmark.
We have disserted, but still re-
mains the burning question: "WHY?"
* * *-
But there were really a lot of nice
things going on Friday and Satur-
day. The Alumni, etc. We sozzled
about the campus a bit, looking
hither and thither for amusement,
and found it. Here wa a gent of am-
ple proportions wearing a bedoozled
floo-flah on his cranium. It may have
been a straw hat at one time, for it
had a brim and a band. But there
the semblance ceased. On the front
it bore a feather, gaudy but not neat,
and the legend: 'LO, meaning, we
take it: Naughty Naught Law. We
passed him without a word, wonder-
ing if we would be like that twenty-
five years from now, and secretly
hoping that we would, only we didn't
tell that to the ginch who was hob-I
bling about with us.
* * *
There was more of the above, but
Jo and Metta just came in. Says
Jo: "ABCD Boids?"
Metta: "LMNO Boids."
Jo: "OSAR."

Winding up with verse, we leave
with you this thought:
A fly stood on the railroad track,
He turned in haste, came running
He woke me from my mild repose
I turned and smashed him on the

It's almos worth graduating just
to come back for a reunion. We
wonder if that's why some of our
classmates are going to school.
Joe's used to be. the center of alum-
ni activities; now it's Alumni Mem-
orial hall. Still, the attendance
seems to be increasing.
Graduating wouldn't be so bad if
it weren't for paying the fees.
