lege spirit through the entire year that we are
seeking through the medium of summer intercolleg-
iate athletics, and, our good friend "The Wake" to
the contrary, we believe that the scheme is an entire-
ly logical one. We believe, in short, that the idea
of having school the whole twelve months is com-
ing more and more to the front, and that it is only
a matter of time before the summer intercollegiate
athletic plan will be adopted anyhow.

LEARNING FROM THE FISH
"The poor fish!" Here is a slang phrase; but
what does it mean? We have often heard it uttered
by persons. in moments of anger, excitement, and
after calm deliberation; but an exact meaning is
hard to find. The truth is that the mood of the speak-
er must be considered in.translating many of the,
popular sayings in our slanguage.
In a recent lecture on "The Senses and Learning
Processes in Fishes," Prof. J. E. Reighard, of the
zoology department, explained the peculiar view of
the land objects that fish get from under the water.
The fish can see on the horizon line, owing to the re-
fraction of light, but the image is a very peculiar
and distorted one. The fish does not get what we
would call a correct image. It sees a man as hav-
ing four legs, four arms, and two bodies, one of
which is growing out of the top of his head. A
picture of what the fish sees would be highly in-
Thus can we connect the fish with the indiviual?
Many of us have wrong ideas of life in general.
As the fish is steeped in water, so are we in pred-
judice and ignorance. We go through life with
wrong impressions and, like the fish, not until we
are hauled out into reality are we disillusioned and
do we see things as they are.
COLLEGE ATHLETICS IN SUMMER,
("The Wake of the 7V'ews"-Chicago Tribune)
Student publications at' Wisconsin, Michigan, Il-
linois, where the summer registration is heavy, are
discussing the advisability of intercollegiate ath-
letics during the summer, owing to the growing im-
portance and attendance at these sessons.
At first thought the, idea ;oes not appeal to us,
*lthough we are open to. conviction. College ath-
letics are founded on undergraduate enthusiasm and
from other colleges to take advanced work or to
specialize in some particular subject. We do not
feel their interest-during this short course-is of
the kind which makes for intercollegiate rivalry.
Moreover, would not summer contest be:decided-
ly anti-climax to those of the regular season when
undergraduate spirit is in full'swing? Would they
not be inferior in quality? In fact, wbuld they not
be lowering the caliber of competition which we ai'e
striving constantly to raise?
The Wake, however, is a firmh believer in athletics
and exercise. Our plan would be an intra-mural
. schedule of sports in which summer students could
participate and find amusement."
A STORY OF UPS AND DOWNS
(The Detroit Free Press)
It is really impossible longer to neglect the recent
announcement that ears are coming 'back. They
have been out of sight for a long time, but no
student of history cold have doubted that they
would reappear, for they always do. An eclipse of
ladies' ears is a regular event in the never-ending
round, of fashion.
Perhaps an attentive study of the past would en-
able historians to predict the appearances and dis-
appearances of /ears as the astronomers do the ap-
paritions of the heavenly bodies, but one does not
need to go into ancient history for proof that there
is a periodic tendency on the part of women's hair
to 'descend and veil their ears. Any family album,
if it not a mere thing of yesterday, will suffice to
demonstrate the fact and a reference to the esteem-
ed encyclodpedia will carry the inquirer back to the
days of ancient Egypt and bring him down through
the ages on a succession of hirsute rises and falls.
There is something cosmic in the recurrent' ups and
downs of hair.:
Perhaps the monotony is accounted for by the
fact that, notwithstanding the aid of wigs, puffs and
rats, hair does not lend itself well to a variety of
treatments. Its length is confined to rather narrow
limits and it is fastened on. It can, of curse be
made to' take on fantastic shapes bye th use of
adhesives and concealed frames, but even the great-
est slave of fashion rebels a little when styles of
hair dressing become so elaborate that milady must
have her hair "done" once and wear it that way,.
night and day. In periods of the greatest extrava-
gance in hair fashions that has been done, but such
styles do not last) Instead the demand for change
results in putting the hair up over the ears if it is
down or putting it down when it is up. In the' exist-
ing circumstances thei-e is nothing to do but put
it up and another era of ears is at hand.
Every drinker, even of non-intoxicating liquors, Mi
Wisconsin, must stand far enough away from the
bar so that the rail will be out of reach of his unoc-
cupied foot, according to a recent edict of the at-
torney general. What torture for the tap-room-ite !
Let us hope a similar prohibition does not hit Ann

FROCKS for iadamoiselle
Dame Fashion sometimes decides to be colorful, then indeed
frocks are of gay hues, but then again she decides to be somber and
then somber she is! This fall midnight blues and black are the fav-
ored hues for frocks. But here and there are bright touches of gay

For dress wear satin crepe, can-

vogue. Long waisted frocks with
long panels, some that hang long-

Though the materials used are

.brilliant color, to give the frock a
chic appearance..- Our ready to

that will please Madamoiselle.
Long coatlike lines are preserv-
ed in woolen frocks. Tricotine
and serge are used extensively to
make smart models that give the
wearer a stylish appearance. Again
midnight blue and black are much
in evidence with now and then a
bit of brown. Tailors braid and
buttons are much favored for trim-
