. the Muchigan Summer session there are a large
ber of teachers, many of whom undoubtedly act
-mfessors and advisors to their pupils. At the
exnt time, they are students of this great Univer-
but unfortunately they do not come in contact
all phases of Michigan life in the summer. As
ents primarily, they must realize the academic
tness "f Michigan and the supreme position it
n this field. However, the other activities of the
versity, which form a real bond for all Michigan
ents, are not all functioning. True, the Union,

about it, and most of them will come to their

mer session have assimilated any particle of the
uigan spirit, they will use their influence in

though the two presidential nominees have not
een officially notified of their selection, both of
have already begun campaign speeches, and in
first addresses, they have made various com-
s upon political conditions. Questions have been

'for Women's suffrage, and they admit that the

say, but as far as we can see, neither one of the

When college students took the places of striking
railroad men the ease with which they mastered
strange duties drew attention to an industrial fact
that always is overlooked until an emergency dangles
it before our eyes. Soft handed lads, who scarcely
knew the difference between a drawbar and a fish-
plate, readily absorbed many of the fundamentals of
railroad operation, and more than a few, after a
week of practice .and instruction, were able to fire
locomotives with reasonable efficiency.
Specialists of all sorts like us to believe that their
crafts are so difficult to learn, except with years of
practice, that we must either employ them upon their
own terms or go unserved. We are apt to accept
this belief ; yet when circumstances throw us upon
our own unaided resources we usually find that the
mysteries of many common trades are not nearly so
intricate as their practitioners have led us to sup-
The high cost of plumbing has made many a
thrifty housewife take a new and personal interest in
her household water works; and thousands of such
practical women, with no more formidable tools
than a tack hammer, a hairpin, and a screw driver
out of the sewing machine drawer, have taught
themselves to put on spigot washers bought at the
10-cent store and to adjust balky float valves quite
as well as the usual doer of such jobs and his young
helper. The same good wives keep a few fuse plugs
in a pantry drawer; and when the lights go out they
do not call in an electrician. Neither do they send
for a plasterer when a tile comes off the bathroom
wall. They have learned that 5 cents' worth of
plaster of Paris and 'An old caseknife will anchor

If these random examples have any significance
at all they hint that most of us are not nearly so in-,
dispensable to our communities as we suppose our-
selves to be. If we will not do our work on fair
terms some one else will. We .may cause inconveni-
ence or even suffering by quitting in a body without
notice, but in the long run there always will be some
one to do the world's work. When trained men lay
down their tools amateurs will pick them up, and in
time they will learn to use them just as effectively.-

Governor Cox may be sincere in telling the wom-

These few excerpts from the Quadrangle book of
1905 might prove interesting to the students of the
Summer session as they were written by a professor
who is now teaching somewhere in Michigan.
STRAINS FORM THE "CORPUS INSCRIP-
VoL. VI. No. 18131
My name was Bilious Ike,
I've hiked the dusty pike
With booze and beers
For three score years,
The same old Bilious Ike.
And now I've passed my check,
No more I'll stack a deck;
I lost my game
When summons came
Towards Hades' gloom to trek.
Stay, mourn my thirsty soul,
Turn down the flowing bowl,
For here I lie
Save for a passer's dole.
Bedew, my friend, the ground,
Bedew this darn-old mound ;
A drop does tell'
When you're in hell,
And feel the flames around.

Ho there ! You lover, I say,
You seen old Venus today?
That damned old goddess of love?
She's pierced my joint
With an arrow's point,
And I'm wild as .hell with love.
