Ann Arbor's obbler Poet Full of n-
thusiasm; Writes Another Spec-
tacular Poem
Fumblingethrough his pockets, nerv-
ous and over-joyed, Ann Arbors poat-
cobbler, Dr. Tom Lovell, approached
one of The Wolverine's cubs yester-
day with what he terms "the big story
of the summer." Three distinct letters
formed the basis of that assertion,
according to Tom.
The first of these, it was found,
came from Madame Shuman-Heink,
the second from Governor Sleeper's
secletary, and the third from a nurse"
in England. All of them, it appeared,
recognize Dr. Lovell's poetic ability
and praise his popular hit called
"Good-bye Sweetheart."
The inspiration of the letters has
driven Tom to his pen again, and he
believes that the poem appended be-
low is by far his best.
Autumn Leaves Will Soon Be Falling
Autumn leaves will soon be falling;
Beautiful, summer days all gone;
The birds will have ceased their.call-
ing
To each other in their sweet song;
So let us then keep all the roses
While roses are still found with you
Who have them in your gardens,
Soon to fade away from your view.

THE WOLVERINE

A STUDY IN CONTRAST
A farwell scene midst much ap-
plause,
A fine young fellow to the wars,
Great honor done! '
A parting 'neath a wintry sky, j
A widow's prayer, a tear-dimned
eye,
An only son.
A safe return, a father's pride,
A host of friends from far and
wide,,
A mother's joy!
A figure still and stern in death,
A widow's feelings finding breath,
"O God, my boy!"

Copper Box in New Michigan Union
Filled with Various

When the corner stone was laid for
the new Michigan Union building
which has been so aptly named, "a
million dollar melting pot of college
democracy," a copper box was placed
in it in which held a varied collection

PAT-CHES
We met two youngsters going fish-
ing. One had eaten all but one bite
of his doughnut. The other had half
of his left. We suggested, "You're a
slow eater." "Yeah," he replied, "I
got the worms in my mouth."
Two dollars more for the Sammies'

Thanks.
We read with interest in the T-N
for Wednesday that Dr. Pratt was
given a farewell banquet last Monday
evening. News travels slowly this hot
weather, doesn't it?

He-"No. Are you?"
She-"Yes. Please close the win-

Two signs, both on red paper, on

MEASLES.
For the third time the T-N informs
us in a tag-end "So the soldier had
the police-woman arrested for inter-
fering." Kill it, boys, kill it.
"Where's June, Henry? I never see
her with you any more."
"No. She's gone."
"Where to?"
"We were out driving in the car. I
went in to get some ice cream cones.
When I came out she was gone."
"What happened to her?"
"I don't know unless the radiator."
PESTS
The guy who comes around about
six o'clock Sunday morning to call for
a friend and signals to him by shriek-
ing six times with a forty-horse power
klaxon.
The chump who comes splashing
around into the quiet corner where
you're trying to catch a few two-
pounders.

"A lot on State Street has just been
sold by James H. Wade to the Beta

Murder will out.
We suppose Saunders will post his
reduced rates on canoes for the re-
mainder of the session soon.
We were astonished to learn that
the different offices of the University

MARINE RECRUIT MISTAKES
ORJIERS OF HIS SUPERIOR
Port Royal, S. C., August 15.-Un-
der the watchful eye of a quartermast-
er regeant some United States marine
recruits were being fitted into uni-
forms, today. One recruit was ob-
viously awkward and nervous. He was
endeavoring to fit his "number blank
feet" into a pair of "number eight reg-
ulation shoes," and experiencing much
difficulty.
"Come on-shake a leg!" growled
the sergeant, impatiently, da
"I tried that, but it didn't do any;
good," ventured the prespiring recruit,
tugging manfully to accomplish a
hopeless task.
The sergeant gave it up in dis-
gust. "Shake a leg," in the parlance
of the United States marines, means,,
"Hurry up."
