Campus Beautiful
In the vicinity of the Library and the
Science building there can be seen
disheartening barren spots which in-
crease both in size and number every
day. With benches scattered about
under the trees, with hundreds troop-
ing wantonly across the grass, and
with papers and rubbish of all kinds
strewn about in great profusion, the
lawns are rapidly assuming the Afp-
pearance of a rather ill-kept back yard.
Heroic measures must be taken
at once if the traditionaly beautiful
Michigan campus is to be restored to
its beauty. The lawns will be sprinkl-
ed, raked frequently, and all rubbish
kept off.
But the University authorities can-
not do this unaided. It is also neces-
sary that everyone who is in any way
connected with Michigan, pitch in and
help. Every student might take more
care that he uses the walks, and that
he does not throw rubbish about in-
discreetly, and does everything in his
power to preserve the campus.
"Treat it is if it were your own," is
a fine principle for a campus beautiful
campaign which is pretty urgent this
summer.

New Indiana "Gym" Open This Fall

nasium, now in the course of construe-
tion, is expected to be ready for the

includes a big swimming tank.
Two Coasts Visited by Crews
The appearance of the University of
Washington's crew at Poughkeepsie
and the Princeton eight's competition
at Seattle next spring, as outlined by
preliminary arrangements, will prove
a boom for college rowing on both
coasts.

Real Letters from teal Soldiers.
(A Clever Little Letter.)
Letter flowing with ideas received
from our Mexican correspondent:
Dear John:
Is it hot enough for you up there?
It is very hot here and the weather is
fine. The soldiers are all along the
border. There is a little village nest-
ling in the hills near here, and on the
outskirts is a babbling, brawling
brook. How I love nature here, John,
the captain told me. The girls are
all very rustic and terribly nice. Can
you manage to keep warm up there?
The girls down here are perfect won-
ders, perfect whizzes. We should
worry. The soldiers are all very brave
and they all wear kahki, and look
so handsome that it makes me want
to die. There may be a war some
time here. I say, do you know, I get
so lonesome, and will you please send
me $3.73. Send it either by telegraph,
check or mail or money order. Give
my love to all, Write soon. Sincere-
ly, FATTY.
Beside the local church there is a
pasture. Is It for the pastor? Nor is
it for the pasteur treatments, It is for
the flocks to have picnics on. (Copy-
righted by The Wolverne),
lie Deserves Worse, But Ile Dassent
Say It
We can list to the bard of the Winter
When he sings his good ballads of
cheer;
And we gaily will hear the Spring
singer,
When he raises and praises bock
beer.
And therminstrel who plays in the
Autumn,-
Yes, we'll heed to his paeans of Fall,
But the one who gives praise to the
Summer
Is the dod-gasted writer of all,
Is the bog-blasted blighter of all-
With his songs to the tune of the hot
days,
With his dirges that sweat in the
shade,
With his chants and his rants of the
heat rays
And the dewdrops that Nature has
made.
As he prattles of hay fields and pas-
tures,
And of daisies that grow in the dell,
(Oh, is Death much too good for this
varlet?)
He has earned a hot place in-er-a
cell.
S'Too Late Now.
0, the clever things I think of1

Shortly after I recite!
I get up all unretentive
Of the dope I learned last night.
And the prof slips me a zero;
I can see him scrawl it down.
And the other guy's the, hero
'Cause be's got the bunk learned
brown.
O, it's bull and sand and gall
That wins the profs, coin, girls and
all.
O, the clever things we think of
Minutes after we recite.'
Intellectual curiosity one hears of is
said to characterize the campus, but
much of the curiosity exhibited isn't
intellectual.

LITTLEJOHN FELT LITTLE WHEN
JUDGE RELIEVED HIM OF LITTLE
The Ann Arbor police department
knows its business, and consequently
will not permit a carpenter from De-
troit to come and burn up streets.
William Littlejohn was arrested yes-
terday, and fined $10 and costs for
cutting a corner at 18 miles. per hour.
When brought before the judge, he
stated that he did not know the speed-
ing laws of Ann Arbor, whereupon the
judge replied: . "It is high time that
you were learning, and perhaps the
$13.45 will aid you in remembering."
