It seems ,quite the thing for stu-
dents who return to the University
for summer study ' to use- the col-
umns of The Daily to criticize the
student body, but this is criticism of
other summer students by a summer
student. I do not happen to be one
of the fortunate souls who returns for
graduate study, but one whose first
work' was done at a nearby normal
Several people have been heard to
remark on the business-like air of
summer students. This is well and
good, but from the small number to be
found at the 5 o'clock lectures, con-
certs, etc., one wonders if some peo-
ple are not attending to their own
business so closely that they are
missing some of the other worthwhile
things to be done at Michigan.
I 'had always had -the feeling that
one who came to school summers
could "never reailly feel himself a part
of the University, but several years
ago in an address tosummer students
the late President Burton expressed
the view that the summer student had
his contribution to make to the life
of the .University. The next day at
the President's reception' I tried to
say a few gracious words to President
Burton for the inspiration that his
address had given me, and the things
he said in reply are a treasured mem-
ory. From then he was MY presi-
dent and Michigan MY college.
This is all introductory to what I
want to say about the summer stu-
dent. Michigan cannot really become
anything but a place to grind to the
one who comes merely for what he
can get academically. Partly in
memory of President Burton, I at-
tended the faculty reception, but they
did not seem to be overworked "re-
ceiving." No doubt every dean and
every one of their wiies gave up
something to be there, and was it not
up to the students to show their ap-
preciation by dropping in? The ex-
cuse in the mind of everyone who di1
'nt go probably was that this was
not meant for him, or that it was not
in his line, but perhaps if some of
these people would avail themselves
of the chance to meet the faculty so-
cially they might feel that the affairs
arranged for the summer were meant
The instance of the faculty recep-
tion is an example that could be par-
elleled in many other fields. Thy not
be a real person instead of merely
a grind? I am writing this when I
should be grinding, but why not. an
interlude if I get any fan out of it?
ALSO A TEACHER.
WTS A POOR iDE&
(The Detroit Free Press)
Remarks the Chicago Tribune, argu-
ing for continuous school sessions the
year around, ' Educator are pretty
well agreed that children can go to
school 1onths a year without
danger toealth, and t Is said that
a normal' child at the age of 12 can
handle subjects taught in the e"ighth
gradseas successfully as ca: a child
of 4, provided they have had the
same preliminary training."
Educators, however, are not physic-
iansand 'assumhing that the ;ribu ne
represents' themi accurately, their
verdict that children can go to school
continuously without injuring their
health, is merely the opinion of lay-
men which has little of no final au-
thority. Besides this, much more than
mere physical health is involved in
the question the Tribune has raised.
All work, and no play makes Jack a
dull boy whether the work is school
work, or work on the farm, or in the
shop. Children need lots of play
suggestion for four three-month terms,
making attendance upon only three
obligatory in a single year. But what
about the multitude of youngsters who
are considered incumbrances by their
parents, and who if such an arrange-
ment were in force would be shunted
off to school, summer, winter, spring
and fall, merely to get them out of
the way so that counterfeit fathers
and mothers could enjoy themselves?
Needless to remark, the rolls don't
have to hit the griddle (or whatever
it, is they're cooked on) to be burn-
ed. Last night, which.was the time
they were being cooked, was hot'
enough to singe a whale's eyelashes.

Question: Why are you here?
Where Asked: The Diagonal at 41st.
Jo Splurched, '34 A. W. O. L.: Who
said I was here? I have been trying
to keep this a secret all my life,
but I guess I'm found out. The prin-
cipal reason is to learn to be a shiek,
but I haven't seen a tent around here
yet. That isn't hay on my back, that's'
just .grass, I've been counting the
clouds. Well, s'long.
Matilda MacKintosh; '16E: I just
had to get off the farm during harvest
time because the boys are all busy
then and I don't have any fun.' I thin
youse Michigan guys are keen, though.
How's for a date tonight?
Gotch Zanzibar, '28 SOL, says
which? Oh-I just come to get out a
work, and now my profs wont let ne
sleep-not in class, anyhow. Say,
what's that building over there? Oh,
the library? Well. 'I gotta go look
it over some time. Well, s'long..
Damnda Fino, '68 B.V.D., sox 13 1-2,
collar 34. I'm here because the head
of the place told me they couldn't get
along without me. I'm a great guy,
you know-all the profs. like me, but
I know more than they do most of the
time so I don't go to classes muc'h
of any, but then sometimes I go
around to help the boys out a bit.

Today's Topic: Heat.
This is a hot subject, we'll admit,
but we gotta talk about something,
and that's all that's on our mind
Heat is a great moisture producer.
It sucks up water from the earth and
then lets it go again. It likewise pulls
perspiration from each puffing person
(get the alliteration?).
Well, anyway, it's been too hot to
fish or play tennis or golf or go on
excursions, and so we haven't got
anything to write about. Olaf has
succumbed to the heat to such an ex-
tent that he has decided to study, and
we're all alone. We have a letter
from Peat Bog's uncle saying that it
is 107 1-2 in the shade up there, and
that if it gets much hotter he'll have
to put some ice in the ice box to
keep it from burning up. Peat Bog
has not beenheard from, but it is ru-
mored that he went to Detroit last
week-end and is still there.
With this' issue, rools begins its'
regular summer session course in na-
ture studies. This lecture, little
