Contributed Poem
The Seribe
A pasion wells up from the soul
And wrings hot tears and shakes him
quivering through.
A cloud enshrouds the things around
And lets him sense alone odd tones and
Write-write- enternally write!
Whsite lightnings jag the word in
flashing lights;
And mad old oceans thunder it
through the nights.
For what men talk is drivelling, sick-
ening chaff.
We crave high thinking chiselled with
And graved forever in the oBok of
-Pale statues; gaudy canvass; speech-
All these sink crushed. beneath time's
But thought burned clear in book and


Issue Editor-Myrtle N. Elsenau
The use of the word "blue books'
for examinations originated at Michi-
gan. It is an intensive word and in
college comes to be almost as strong
as the words which have been es-
sentials to the forward march of hu-
man progress, like "love" and "ideals."
Just now the concept of blue books
reigns supreme over all others about
the Michigan campus. In spite of the
taunting taste of spring, and the kids
on roller skates, the atmosphere of
every cubic foot of Ann Arbor air is
blue with the odor, the fear and the
toil of blue book days.
Now the Rough house and Horse
play are locked up in a dark closet,
but they laugh over the transom and
jibe us for the victory they won
through the long, lolling nights of
last autumn. Now the rowdiest
freshman in the house is locked up in
his room all night with a hired tutor.
Now the senior weighs the advisability
of quitting college and going to work
if a good job should turn up. And
this is the week that the shark and
grind go around with the irrespressi-
ble grin, of the triumph of industry
over sloth. Some of the wiser of us
will remember to take a shower oc-
cassionally and to eat rightly, but the
majority won't have time to think
about such things as keeping them-
selves in physical prime for the sev-
eral plunges into the sweat shop of
the next two weeks.
For a week or so the rooms will
be filled with the haze of blue smoke
to keep us awake. The telephone will
be muffled or suddenly stilled, and the
piano down stairs will be locked. The
shopkeepers fill their windows with'
the suggestive blue pamphlets which
glare out at us like regiments of
Germans ready to make a charge.
Some enterprising soda fountain man-
ipulator will perhaps spring a Blue-
book Sundae. Now are the landladies
retrenching to pay the heaviest light
bills of the season. Now the whole
campus marches to classes to the
hornpipe of bluebooks, and at night the
starry sky is put in the shade by the
brilliantly lighted city of Ann Arbor

We hear much to-day of the super-
man and super-woman. Is there such
a thing as super-selfishness? Is it not
to be found among the students of the
University of Michigan?
Assignments are frequently made in
classes of from twenty to fifty students
with the work to be done in the lib-
rary. Almost as frequently the num-
ber of copies of the desired book is
limited to two, three, six-often times
to one. , Students know this and are
requested not to take the book from
the library.
Why then do certain students go
there early in the morning, draw out
the book and hold it for the rest of
the day for their own individual use,
but using it only part of the time, and
knowing that they are depriving-others
of the chance to get their lessons?
Such a student is not content to
draw it out only when he is ready to
study it. He takes it out at 8 a. m.
attends his 8 and' 9 o'clock classes;
studies it, or something else, from 10
to 11; and then goes to his 11 o'clock.
From there he goes to lunch-takes
his book with him of course-and may
finally turn it back at the desk some-
time in the afternoon, usually when
the class is over and no one wants it.
In the meantime, twenty students
have been to the desk from one to
twenty times only to hear, "It is out
in the room." Many of them have
seen the book toted around under the
arm of the student from class to
class, to lunch, and back again.
If one asks such an offender why he
does it, he receives an answer that is
about as satisfying as the English or
German answer to the American pro-
test about the violation of our rights
as a neutral: "The other fellow is to
blame. I wouldn't do such a thing
if he hadn't done it first." It is con-
venient answer because it can be used
to equally good effect by either. Since
someone else has drawn a book, there-
by depriving him and the other twen-
ty of the opportunity to get their les-
sons, or might do so in the future, he
is justified in depriving the twenty of
that pivilege in order to get even
with the one. The reason is not very
The real reason is the selfishness of
the student. He goes on his way ap-
parently blissfully ignorant of the
fact that he is not living in an age
gone by-the age of the individualist
when the greatest possible advance-
ment of the individual, no matter by
what selfish means, was held to be eo
the best interests of society. He has
existed in the university atmosphere
for three or four years and has been
told daily, to no avail, that this is an
age with a new aim-the highest wel-
fare of the number and not of the in-
dividual. The teachings ofhis uni-
versity have not penetrated. He goes
forth as he entered-an individualist,
dominated by selfishness, either un-
conscious or unappreciative of a so-
cial feeling.

Sociologists avers that intense self-
fishness is a dangerous form of in-
sanity too subtle for us to segregate.
That's just the way with summer stu-
dents who turn out excruciatingly ob-
noxious poetry as the result of a brain
fevered by a Bermuda high, e. g.

The recent report of remarks by
Professor David Friday on the in-
cidence of taxation in the Wolverine,
has been misconceived. What he inti-
riated was as follows: Were the State
to rescind the salaries of all its offic-
ials, of Senators, of Legislators, of paid
commissions and boards; were it,
further, to abolish law courts, prisons,
industrial schools, normal schools, and
all other institutions in receipt of
state support, includ'ing the University,
then one cent in every six would be de-
ducted from the rates. In other words,
the University receives a fraction of
one cent on every six cents now raised.
