WHERE, OH WHERE
To the Editor:
Men! Where are those men of yes-
teryear? Where are those models of
masculine strength, vigor and culture
that made Michigan of ten or twenty
years ago a place the very mention of
which would thrill a feminine heart
from the Atlantic to the Pacific? I
have returned to. my Alma Mater aft-
er "serving" twelve years on a high
school faculty and I am wretchedly
disappointed in the Michigan men of
Ltr SUM ER -
Yesterday afternoon having been a
splendid day for playing golf, we went
fishing. We have no other excuse.
Some bozo had told us that there
were trout to be had in a little stream
some thirty miles out, so with our
companion whom we shall call Bill
for want of a better pseudonym, we
set out shortly after noon.

There was once a time when "looks"
weren't everything and the college
men selected their girt friends for.
their intellectual accomplishments
and their "ways". But those days,
are gone forever. Today the college
man wants his "woman" to be "hot
looking" and even if she is an intel-,
lectual moron she may be quite pro-
ficient at "handing a line". These are.
not passing observatious, for I live

The courtesy that marked the Mich-
igan man of 1905 from any other col-
lege man is missing on the campus
today. The pleasant smiles that for-
ever will make a 'class room more
than four walls and a blackboard are
not to be found here. If the man has
been compelled to attend an eight o'-
clock session, you can be certain that
he will be scowling as he trudges into

I never have seen such boorish man-

part of so many. men in one city. For
instance, they think nothing of forc-

gard the presence of women and make

subjects especially whey they are
within feminine earshot.
What is responsible, for this great
change that has come over the Men of
Michigan? 'Tis a pity they cannot
profit by the rightous heritage which
is theirs. And we are the unfortun-
ate victims of this conduct. We who
have attended Michigan when "men
were men" and not "mollycoddles" or
"lounge lizards" utter our feeble but
well meaning protest to the changing
ofder of men.
Arriving, we found the stream to

our rods, Bill used a fly rod while we #
decided in favor of, the more con-
servative worms, chiefly because we
didn't have a fly rod. The ground ad-
joining th s'eam we found to have
a tendency to proceed up and down
in irregular ranges, all well hidden in
level topped grass.
"That," said Bill, laying' a nice cast
into a weed bed, "should produce re-
sults." . It didn't, nor did the next cast
nor the next.
"Haw," said we, dropping a worm
into the water, "Watch us."
Our next move was to step jauntily
into a vacant space in the sod. Aft-
er our leg had sunk in the muck to
about knee depth, we decided that the
best thing to do was to sit down quite
suddenly. We did so.
"Oh, did: you fall?" says Bill.
"No," says we, nastly-like. "We

NO CARS FOR FRESHMEN
(The Detroit News)
While American universities have
been wondering what, if anything,
to do about the automobile, Oxford
and Cambridge have taken action.
They have decided that motor-cars
and motor-bikes are not for freshmen.
First-year men must show themselves
serious enough to become sophomores
before they can indulge in the ex-
penditure of petrol, the curious Briti
ish word for gas.
At Cambridge a special proctor is
to be employed whose business will
consist in policing the town, watching
for violations of the motor rules on
the part of students. He is to have
assistants, and a secretary, and the
motor record of each undergraduate
will be on his books.
It is reported that the vote of the
Cambridge governing body in favor,
of the motoring restrict'ions was sur-
prisingly large. Why surprising? Is-
n't it human nature of a learned pro-
fessor who is getting the salary of a
janitor, and can't. afford to ride in
a motor-care, much less keep one,
to resent having to skip out of the
way of some siiip whose papa has
money enough to buy him a car, and
influence enought to get him into
The Free Press approves the slim

the other point-that she doesn't have
such a balancing effect on the canoe?

And so it went. At last we reached
a pool which looked good.
"I'll take it first," says Bill, be-
ginning to whip his rod back and
"Oh, will you?" says we, tossing a

"Yes,"' says Bill, rather meanly.

our line in for all that. In a little

"Shut yur head," says we,

if we ever catch any of them saying
it, we'll crown 'em.

Underneath a fallen leaf he saw Tit-

Then thru the resounding green-

and Maxine the lioness crept, with
her tail down, to her lair. Boree had
made a kill!
Unfortunately the scream hurt lit-

down groveling in the dust. He died.
