and willing to accept their judgment.
We welcome President Little, and of-

To the Editor:
Being one of the spinster teachers
with grey hair studying here this
summer, I am grieved over the con-
troversy going- on in this column.
Please, young people, don't class us
all together, us old ones, as "old hens"
who are down on the present day
youth and his clothes, just because
ONE of us said something derogat-
ory about you. Consider those who
have not. Very many, I know, con-
sider knickers sensible and "spiffy"
(is my slang old fashioned?) and
modern clothes in general much more
comfortable and artistic. Let me con-
fess in secret, too, that many of us
old ones roll our hose and wear only
as many clothes as are necessary.
Don't be so disturbed over critic-
ism. Don't you know that human
nature is ever the same, that the
young people of any age are always
censured by the older people? Re-
member that the old ones of today,
when they were young, were consid-
ered far from perfect by their eld-
ers. Twenty-five years from now you
will be shocked by the young people
of that time. So don't mind what is
said, and don't think too harshly of
the older people; it is just history
repeating itself.
I have been teaching high. school
for sixteen years, during which time
the present day youth has developed.
Of course he has his faults-who has
not?-but, in my opinion, he has nev-
er been surpassed in alertness, frank-
ness, capability, good sense, and
"sweetness." There are many who
think as I do, we admire and like you,
and we hope you like us.
-M. E. T.



Night Editor-W. C. PATTERSON
Dr. Clarenice C. Little has been elect-
*4 the sixth president of the Univers-
sity by the Board of Regents. On
October 1, Acting President Alfred H.
Lloyd will surrender the administra-
tive reins of the University to this
man who, in thirty-seven y ears, has
made himself such an outstanding ed-
ucational leader that he has been
called to take charge of one of the na-
tion's greatest educational institu-
Following, as he does, a group
which includes several of the most
outstanding college presidents the
country has ever known, President Lit-
tle may find his position an exacting
one. Michigan has been fortunate in
having at Its head, during its eighty-
eight years, men of great capabilities.
Michigan will look for those same
qualities which have been so outstand-
ing in her past presidents in this
new, this young, president. And the
indications are that Michigan's search
will not be unavailing.
Probably no man has ever become
president of this Institution with
more to recommend him; more capa-
bilities more experience -more ac-
tual qualifications. Dr Little, at
thi-ty-seven years of age, stands out
far above many men of more mature
years. His life has been an almost
perfect training school for the execu-
tive, the administrato, the college
Michigan could not ask that her
president come better equipped for
the work that lies before him than
does Dr. Little. His knowledge and
experience rival that of men far old-
er, his ambition and energy are still
those of the youthful at'let.e,-he can
and does accomplish things. He has
proved himself a worthy educator, an
*fficient administrator, and. insofar
as he found necessary at Maine. a
persuasive lobbyist.
That he is worthy of the position
to which he has been elected is un-
doubtedly true. And with his own at-
ainments as a basis, and the presi-
dency of a university which, instead
of being made by her - presidents,
makes them, there appears, in the
future, a vision of President Little
ranking with such great college pres-
idents as James Burrill Angell, Mar-
ion L. Burton, and Charles W. Eliot
is not too for-fetched.
We rejoice that the Regents have
found a worthy successor to the great
Dr. Burton, we are happy that the af-
fairs of the University are to remain
in the hands of another such as he.
The University-students, faculty, ad-
-Ministrative heads, and townspeople-
welcome President Little. We hope to
seet in him a continuation of those
great policies which formed the key-
note of the every action of his prede-
cessor. We hope he will continue
a to strive for that goal which Dr. Bur-
ton set as his horizon. We hope that
President Little will strengthen our
University materially, intellectually,
and spiritually.

shaken, a mountebank went about
among the country people selling pills
which he assured them were "good
against an earthquake." Nothing can
prevent earthquakes, but it is hu-
manly possible to protect to some ex-
tent against loss and suffering from
them. Man, who has faced with some
success the hazards of the air and
water, fire and flood, pestilence, cold
and heat, will find a way to overcome
even an earthquake's rage. It will
be done through proper construction
and such a spirit as is expressed in
the challenge: "We will rebuild."
A few days ago it was the Fourth
of July, or Juliette, as the French
say, just to be feminine. Whereupon
many went pinicing, some went
swimming, a few fished, and many
were maimed. In the crumbs we
have our question to those who went
swimming or fishing, because we
didn't, and. therefore aren't sure
about it.
Olaf the Great and Peat Bog had
their own novel little method of cele-
brating the day-they went "coo-pay-
ing" as they naively put it. Peat Bog
says that their fair (?) partners did
the cooing and that they did the pay-
ing. Punny but funny, what?
And As For Us
But we, ah, we prefered to hit the
trail and mingle with the gasoline
goofs. So it happened that we barg-
ed out of town early on the glorious
morning in a light rain, and headed
north. All went well until we pass-
ed Pontiac (adv., by request of the
Board of Trade). Perhaps it was five
1 miles out when we approached a cross
"Haw," says we, and slowed down to
50 miles an hour.
"Squeeee!" says alot of brakes,
and we're ashamed to tell you what
the applier of those brakes said.
"Well," says we, by way of come-
back, "So's your old man." Then we
A little farther along we noticed
that a man on a motorcycle was
trailing along. We thought that may
be he liked dust, so we gave him a
little, or may be it was a good deal.
He seemed to resent it, for he pulled
up along side and invited us to stop.
We thought we might as well, so we
did, anyhow. We were going to stop
pretty soon at that, so we did it then
not because he told us to.
"Whereth'helld'yuthinky'rgoin ?" en-
quires this apparition politely.
"Quite a ways," says we, not to be
outdone in the courtesy of the road.
"Not that fast," says he in a de-
termined tone.
"Oh," says we, "were we going too
fast? Truly, we're awfully sorry, our
speedometer broke this morning, and
we didn'a know."
Just then someone shot past doing
a good 75.
"Wait here," says our new-found
friend, "I'm going to get that guy."
Now if this were one of Uncle Olaf's
sleepytime stories, we'd say that we
waited, but it isn't.
Try to figure that out.

We hate to be vituperative, but
there are some things that we can't
endure without comment. For three

years we have born our troubles along
this line in silence, but the time has
come when we con no longer keep it
to ourselves-we gotta speak up or
The last straw came the other day
when, as we barged up the front
steps at about quarter of eleven at
night hoping to get something to eat in
the tap (and that's not an adv.), room.
We drew near to the great swinging
doors and were about to enter them
when through those inviolable doors
calmly swung three couples-and we
mean couples-one man and a girl per
each. We paused, stung and stun-
ned. Then we went into the tap room
itself, and there at the tables we
found more women. We recalled that
the pool had been used as a swim-
ming hole for a-group of women one
night after the regulars hours for men.
We went upstairs, and found women,
unescorted, wandering about the
Last night we entered that sanctum
known as the terrace where we seat-
ed ourselves at a table as is our want.
After half an hour spent in happily
obesrving people who had followed in,
two of them, due to their sex, obvious-
ly not members of the Union, give
their orders and be served, we felt
time pangs of hunger gnawing at our
vitals and fell upon the nearest wait-

(The New York Times)
A significant illustration of the in-
domnitable attitude of modern man
toward the forces of nature is the
first official word after the earthquake
in Santa Barbara: "We will rebuild."
In early ages men would have inetr-
preted this disaster as a visitation of
the gods and abandoned the locality as
forbidden ground; and one who knows
Santa Barbara counld understand how
the ancient gods would have wanted to
keep it as their own exclusive resi-
dence. In later centuries, even though
men prayed to St. Barbara for her
protection against lightning and other
perils of sea or land, they would have
fled simply in fear or in despair, being
without resource. Not so the people
of that city, most beautiful for situa-
tion. Though the experiences of some
who have seen and suffered from this1
sudden calamity are of a "hue like
that when some great painter dips
his pencil in the gloom of earth-
quake and eclipse," there is no dis-
may. The voice of man is heard
above the "roaring" of the earth-
There is no foretelling these visita-
tions except in a general regional way.
Statistics covering a thousand earth
quakes on the Atlantic side of the
continent and four thousand on the
Pacific side give some basis for pro-
phecy as to the locality of the quaking
centers and as to probable intensity if
the tremors do come. It is upon this
;scientific basis that proposals have
been recently made- looking to pro-
vision against this hazard, so far as
that is humanly possible. We must
not only prepare to meet earthquake
emergencies in the way of fire fight-
ing, panic, control, transportation,
food supply, water supply, lighting
and first aid such as the American
Red Cross is instantly ready to give,
but also learn to build according to
plans that have the approval of the
seismologist as well as the architect
and engineer.
The earthquake is a strange sort of
guest. His ways mdst be learned and
when they are learned they must be
respected. Addison tells in one of his1
papers that after an earthquake in1
England, when. the whole island was7
