IN RETROSPECT
The eight weeks is drawing toC
a close, and a few moments spentI
in retrospection cannot be amiss.
The time has been so short that we
must do something of the kind to
create a feeling of summation and
achievement w i t hi n ourselves.
Without being statistical, let us
glance back over the activities that
have been carried on on the cam-
pus this summer.
The most noteworthy fact of all
is that the University attained a
record in attendance for the session.
This is of importance not simply
because it is a record, but because
It evidences the value and inter-
esting nature of the activities of-
fered the students. A successful
program is a program to be ex-
amined and analyzed so that its
essential qualities may be retained
when the, scope of the work is ex-
panded. The record reached

This will be the last Toasted
Rolls column until September 30
and if you're glad, what must my
feelings be? I tell you, friends, I
don't see how the poor old Doctors
Whoofle, even considering all their
halfwit ideas, managed to fill this
column four or five days in the
week throughout this long, dreary,
hot, sticky, humiditous (?) sum-
mer. I bow my head before their
superior energy and my only re-
gret is that they are not here with
us today.
This office is the hottest inhab-
itable structure ever built by the
hand of man, and how we've all
managed to get out any sort of
daily paper is to us the supreme
wonder. You saw that paper yes-
terday. It was merely the result,
the culminating effect of 7 weeks
of roasting, boiling, frying, ener-
vating labor in this baking, broil-
ing oven laughingly called the of-
fice. It is equipped with a lovely
fiat tin roof which absorbs nine-
tenths of the entire heat output of
the sun and conserves it for the
benefit of the night staff which in-
cudes a night editor, two head-
line writers, a proof reader and
most of the reporters who barge in
at 10 o'clock to write stories they
got early in the afternoon. When
the temperaturesoutside is down
around 60 degrees we in the office
light our cigarettes by placing one
end in our mouths, the other
against a wall or a desk and inhal-
ing. One night someone turned on
an electric fan the shriveling blast
from which completely melted one
of our best typewriters and burned
the pants off the night editor. We
had a time, I can tell you.
* * *
It will be difficult for you to ap-
preciate all this- especially during
this temporary cool spell-but while
you dear readers have lolled about
the Huron in canoes or about your
boudoirs in I'm not sure what, we
in this office have done our best
to present the news to you in a
fashion that would meet with your
approval; meanwhile wishing we
had gone on the road selling Sat.
Eve Posts to help us through col-
leg and American Boys to help us
throughhigh school.
The editor has just read the col-
umn to date and hastened to in-
form me that you aren't interested
in our suffering; that getting out
a Daily, however small it may be,
is inevitably difficult; and that if
there is any groaning to be done
we should do it in private.
- * * *
But he has just left to go swim-
ming so I want to add that every-
thing I said before goes, and I only
said it to ward off the usual amount
of criticism that pours into this of-
fice from disgruntled subscribers
who expect a gang of journalistic
empryos, working on a part time
basis, to get out a paper that would
make the editors of the New York
4 Times feel they had missed their
calling.
I sincerely hope you've all had a
pleasant summer in Ann Arbor in
spite of the water, the heat, the
Ann Arbor water, the humidity and
the city water supply. We've en-
joyed having you in spite of all the
semi-nasty cracks about school
teachers-who, after all, are a pret-
ty decent bunch of human beings
--and other statements that might
lead you teachers to believe that
we don't like you.

* * *
Most of you will be taking at
least a short vacation before you
return to your classrooms to spring
all your summer's knowledge on
your unsuspecting charges. Have
a good time in .the mountains, at
the seashore, at Hamtramck or
wherever you are going.
* * *
But here, this is a humor column,
and to save it from a complete col-
lapse I want to tell you teachers
the story of the teacher who wrote
home to Willie's mother, as fol-
lows:
Dear Mrs. Jones: Will you please
give Willie a bath? He needs one
very much. (Signed) Teacher.
Back to school the next day
came Willie, with a note from his
mother.
Dear . Teacher (Said the note):
I know Willie ain't no rose, but
learn him, don't smell him. Mrs.
Jones.

Summer Session of 1930 and wishes

tor, will you go bury year head in

more bilious into which you can

And before I forget my grievances
- this being absolutely the final
and only issue of the Morning Daily
Tabloid -may I mention casually
that I should be delighted if some
unelegant thug would place his
tongue in his cheek and nonchal-
antly decapitate the night editor
who cut my review of the "Con-
stant Wife" at exactly that point
where was described the lead's cap-
ability as an actress. (Breathe.) Of
cawse, we realize that Tennant was

the gods be praised, Alan Handley

-thereby giving us a very nice bit
of work; and the Cardinal - whose
voice was well-nigh perfect and
whose control of gesture was ex-
cellent. Altogether a happy pro-
duction.

now? Then you felt a deluge of
nervous perspiration rolling down

After a moment you gave the cue
in what you thought was a hoarse
whisper, but what really sounded
like the Wolverine barging into

pulled herself together you wilted
gently to the ground and spent the
rest of Act 4 in cussing yourself out

Faithful to.our public to the last
gasp, we take this opportunity to
warn all three of our readers that
Clara Bow in "Love Among the Mil-
lionaires" is just as disgusting as
ever, about E in fact.
Considering the fact that motion
picture pro.duction is fighting many
misdirecting influences, that the
cinema hardly approaches the val-
ue it might have, we concede that
our average for the summer is a
bit too high. But we did our best.
Our chief difficulty was putting

we cheered the villian of a play,
hissed the hero, or laughed right
out loud at the sob scenes.
