What Others Say

THE END
OF THE TRAIL

THE eight weeks are drawing to
a close, and a few moments
spent in retrospection cannot be
amiss. The time has been so short
that we must do something of the
kind to create a feeling of summa-
tion and achievement in ourselves.
Without being statistical, let us
glance back over the activities that
have been carried on on campus
this summer.
The most noteworthy fact of all
is that the University of Michigan
is located in Ann Arbor, 97 miles
from Detroit as the crow flies. The
crow we experimented with, we
hasten to add, was not great shakes
at direction and mad the trip by
way of Jackson and Flat Rock.
Moreover, unless you have a fair-
ly highly developed sense of humor,
this final edition of The Summer
Michigan Daily will be a total loss
for you. It has become a recent
custom to issue at least one bur-
lesque number of the paper each
summer, and we who have earnest-
ly endeavored to present Daily
readers with an interesting paper
each morning since the Summer
Session began have at last broken
down under the strain and let our
inhibited inspirations run amuck.
There will be many readers who
will fail to see anything humorous
in the garbling of a daily news-
paper; there will be scores of sub-
scribers who will read stories all
the way through and then will be-
come highly incensed by the hum-
orous twist that reveals the bur-
lesque; but there will be hundreds
who wil llaugh with us in the one
big spree toward which we have
labored through the hottest weeks
we have ever experienced.
We hope you will read this edi-
torial in order that the peculiar
appearance of these pages will be
explained to you; we hope you have
formed the habit of reading all
our editorials this summer (which
we doubt very much). At any rate,
that's the way matters stand, and
we hope your sense of humor is of
such a calibre that you will for-
give this typographical revolution.
All stories credited to the Associat-
ed Press, we might add, are authen-
tic.
But to return to a serious vein
for pust a moment -- and we prom-
ise you this is really serious - the
past few weeks have proved sin-
gularly successful for mist of us de-
spite more or less chaotic world
conditions. The most noteworthy
fact is that the University attained
a record in attendance for the ses-
sion. This is of importance not
simply because it is a record but
because it evidences the value and
interesting nature of the activities
offered the students.
A succesful program is a program
to be analyzed so that its essential
qualities may be retained when the
scope of the work is expanded. The
attendance record indicates that
the Summer Session is taking its
place as one of the major functions
of the University, and we may safe-
ly predict that next year's Session
will show a further increase in the
number of students of all ages who
will come to Ann Arbor to enjoy
its multiplicity of cultural and rec-
reational facilities.
With this bromidic but neverthe-

F'
UNSATISFACTORY
GOLF BALL
(Michigan Daily)
The present agitation in favor of
repealing the new golf ball comes
out of something more than the
disgruntled murmurings of habit-
bound sportsmen unwilling to make
a change. From every nook and
cranny of the country, wherever
golfers waggle clubs over the "bal-
loon" ball, the increasingly insis-
tent demand for a change back to
the old ball is remarkably consis-
tent in its objections.
The new ball, decreed by the Uni-
ted-States Golf Association, has
proved to be a nuisance from tee to
green; it is short on the drive, er-
ratic in any sort of wind, scarcely
ever straight on short pitch shots,
and a devilishly maddening, frog-
hopping pest on the putting green.
Perhaps the U.S.G.A. was justified
in forcing the general adoption of
the new ball on the grounds that
game was "too easy" but in the
light of the current storm of dis-
approval it is difficult to under-
stand why the Asociation does not
admit its error and give up the bal-
loon ball as a bad job.

DROR
(The New Yorker)
The night of the Walker-Sharkey
fight a man tried to call a news-
paper and find out who won. For
some reason or other, Central
couldn't put his call through. He
hung up and tried again, with the
same result. Finally, hot and an-
noyed, he saked Central if SH;E
could tell him who won. "We aren't
alolwed to give out that informa-

tion," she said, after a pause, this
apparently being a weighty prob-
lem for her. The gentleman
wheedled her. He said to take a
chance and tell him, what harm
could it do?, etc. There was an-
other pause. Then: "Nobody win.
It was a dror," said the accommo-
dating young lady.
