"Skipper" F. W. Frostic gave the
signal to the D. U' R. motorman and
the good ship "Niagara" pulled ou
from the Ann Arbor station. This was
last Friday when a full hundred suro-
mer sessioners left for the Niagara
Falls excursion trip. Detroit to Buf-
falo over the pleasant waters of Lake
Erie was accomplished during the
night. By noon of Saturday the party
was luncheoned, hotelled, and direc-
tioned, in Niagara Falls, and equipped
with cameras for the-gorge route.
Day to See Falls
A full day and a little over was then'
at the disposal of the excursionists in
which to view the Falls, the gorge
route, and the chief beauties of the
region. The gorge-loop trip Saturday
down the Canadian side to Brock's
monument and back 'on the American
side by way of Lewiston, was the
longest and most varied feature of the

joyment of the mighty horseshoe falls;

limestone bluffs; the witnessing of the
whirlpool from the aerial car running
across the gorge on seemingly slender
cables; pretty Niagara glen with its
delightful honeymon trails; and then
the lofty Brock's monument: These
were some of the principal sights of
the trip-
Runs by Rapids
Returning on the American side at
the foot'of the 200-fpot cliffs, the 'elec-
tric ran by the very edge of the rush-
ing, seething rapids. Right on up the
gorge to the point where the Falls

could again be sighted, the rail-trail
led until the car crept up the inclined
shelf, to the level of the city. That
finished the day's official program; the
remaining hours were at the disposal
of the sightseers.
Sunday, despite intermittent rain,
the Michiganders took the most thril-
ling of all trips, that through the Cave
of the Winds. The keenest fun it was,
and well shown by the fact that mem-
bers, including the fair ones, slipped
in for a second passage behind the
Falls. Taking off the brownie gar-
ments-necessities for the above ex-
perience,-the group next boarded the
Maid of the Mist for a near glimpse
of the cataract from the deck of this
remarkably powerful boat.
Leave After Dinner
Dinner time and the last visit to the
Falls-came between the noon..hour and
the departure. Goat Island and the
wooded, rapids-surrounded Sister Is-
lands; and walks to various vantage
points for a last glimpse of the "Thun-
derer of the Waters," used up all too
quickly the short ,afternoon.
' Homeward the party went on the
speeding trolley to Buffalo. Boarding
the worthy craft scheduled to carry
us to the Michigan metropolis, the
party got tflieir sea-legs .back again,
and prepared for a jolly sail. Led by
the ever-optimistic and thoroughly ef-
ficient Mr. Frostic, the Michigan folk
held an old-fashioned sing and yell

Mirrellees, Roderick and Jean Wallace
to Offer Unusual Musical
. Nuybers
An all-campus jazz orchestra under
the expert directidn of Don Rhodes,
'21, is to be the headline act of the
Union Summer Spotlight vaudeville, to
be, given at 8:15 o'clock Thursday
evening in Hill auditorium.
The orchestra, composed of two
xlyophones, two saxaphones, and two'
pianos, promises to be one of the big-
gest hits in the way of syncopated
music ever heard ?n the campus.
Richie and Weatherby, the duet that
will manipulate the pianos, are well
known on the campus as jazz artists.
George Chute, '22E, will open the
program with an unusual and original
banjo act, in which he will present
several popular numbers. Underwood,
Jones, Keena and Rigg, who will com-
pose the quartette, are well known to
the' Univei sity as excellent vocalists.
Johes was, a member of the Varsity1
Glee club last year, while both Keena
and Underwood had prominent parts
in the last Union Opera.
A recently added feature to the pro-
gram is in the form of a black face
dialogue, rendered by two sons bf the
sunny south,-Johnson and Barnum.
Jean Wallace, '21, the attractive fem-
inine star of the senior y audeville
given during commencement, will head
a special song act, supported by
Knight Mirrielees, '20, and George
Roderick, '21. Mirrielees, who has
been termed Ann Arbor's Al Jolson,
and Roderick, who is considered a sec-:
ond Berlin, aided materially in making
the Union Opera, "George Did It," a
Another one of the big attractions
will be Kemp Keena, '20. He will sing
selections from former popular Michi-
gan operas. An unusual whistling act,
presented by A. E. Coates, '22, is coil-
sidered to be one of the most original
acts on the program. Coates will give
imitations of bird calls and other diffi-
cult whistling specialties.
Tickets at 50 cents are now on sale
at State street book stores. Mr. Earl
V. Moore, under whose direction the
rehearsals' are being conducted, said
last night that this Spotlight vaude-
ville will probably be among the best
ever held on the campus.
An explanation of the fourth dimen-
sion was given by Prof. W. B. Ford of
the mathematics department, yesterday
afternoon in a regular' 5 o'clock lec-
ture. He showed that such a dimen-
sion was highly, probable and explained
what could be done, if the people of
the world could see in the fourth di.
"The trouble is with us and not with
the fourth dimension," stated Profes-
sor Ford. "We live in a three dinen-
sion world, because we have never

been used to anything else, and be-
cause we have been brought up to in-
terpret in three dimensions."
-By various analogies he pointed out
the extreme possibility of a fourth di-
mension, which can not be' seen or
handled, but which can be studied
mathematically. "We know so little
about the present world," he said,'
"that it permits the supposition that a
fourth dimension world might not con-
tradict the present one."

Thoroughly equipped for all sorts of'

"Michigan First in Health" is the in-
scription, which is to be carried on the
side of the truck, and every endeavor
is being made to carry this out. Com-
plete tests will be made of all water,

"Education is a quest for quality,"
said President Marion . L. Burton,
speaking before a meeting of the Wom-
en's Educational club Monday night, at
Helen Newberry residence. Quantity
and quality, President Burton said, are
not mutually exclusive terms.
"Quality does not depend on size,"
he continued. "America must deal with
large numbers, it can't escape it, but
Americans must try to thrust into life
the thing which gives to it quality and
worth. There is no vital relationship
between quality and quantity. Life1
challenges us to secure quality re-
gardless of whether the thing is large
or small, and if education is to be real
it must not be relhteq to quantity in
any sense."
Involves Dangers
Setting out.to be better inv'olves cer-
tain dangers, he said The seeker for
quality must be careful to avoid snob-
bishness, and he must be extremely
cautious that his quest does not rob
him of contact with life in its entirety;,
President Burton pointed out, for In
specialization in a particular field and
concentration on one subject, he is apt
to lose the symmetry of life.
President Burton defined quality as
"distinctive excellence." "America as
a whole is afflicted with the idea. that
it is too busy. In this hurry and in-
tense activity is one of the first dan.
gers to the quest for quality. Quality
comes only as a result of hard work."
Can Do Better
"The only permanent fact in-'life,"
said President Burton, "is that some-
thing can always be done better than
it was before.. Americans are dom-
inated by the idea that they are what
they are and cannot be any better, but
the spark of life is that every one of
us can do- something better than it was
done\before. People don't step up by
accident. Sometimes they fall up, but
usually they fall down. The only way
to do better is to have a clear intention
of doing better."
There is no such thing as luck in
the world, he said. The world is eager
to offer 'its highest tribute to the per-
son who actually engages in the quest
for quality. The world is crying out
for people who shall insist that the
things they do are done better than
they ever have been before, he said.
Befdre he addressed the club, Presi-
dent and Mrs. Burtoq were entertained
at dinner by Miss Hope Conklin, acting
dean of women.
