ed, weak, and ineffective ones. The board has been
lenient with us in the past, thinking, possibly, that
we need the experience of failure to jog us up and
show to us what is valuable and what is not. Never-
theless, with the increasing size of the University,
it would seem to be about time that some sane
judgment were used in jthe inauguration of campus
activities. This the students have shown themselves
either unable or unwilling to exercise and naturally
so. The board, however, can remedy the situation
if it will set about systematically to do so.
THE PASSING OF OLD TOWN
History tells us that the little hamlet, from which
grew the present city of Ann Arbor, first came into
being through a little group of huts or cottages,
situated north of the river, along the road which
now leads from the Broadway bridge.
That was nearly one hundred years ago. "Old
Town," the name by which we generally call the
district north of the tracks, however, is not espec-
ially attractive nowadays, and the more prosaic of
us pass it by continually with perhaps never a
thought as to its origin and its story. Old Town
is fast being robbed of its former glory. New
brick pavements are taking the place of the old
dirt streets; the modern power house has stood for
some time on the very edge of the pickanniny-pop-
ulated district which was once the real Ann Arbor;
and only within the past few months has a new
and wholly up-to-date garage, with gasoline filling
station and all, taken its place in othe center of the
place's activities as a reminder that, the old tavern
and its neighboring buildings notwithstanding,
"times do change."
Old Town, the probable site of Rumsey's coffee
house, and the location in later years of some of
the finest homes of which the thriving little city
could boast, is rapidly suffering the encroachment of
modern methods. In a few more years, probably,
the most picturesque section of the continually-in-
viting Ann Arbor will have lost all its quaintness
through the general growth and spreading out of
industry. How long will it be before we may ex-
pect a modern sky-scraper, with elevators and office
directories, to appear in all its dominance on the
present site of the Old Town inn?

We suggest the rounding off of all four corners
of the campus, as at South U. and State, thus to
make more ernjoyable and less hazardous the capers
of local mile-a-minute demons and crack speed-
artists. Might as well have our little speedway up-
to-date.
Do not the chunks of chilliness, that we have been
getting along with our warmer weather recently,
furnish an excellent excuse for soda merchants to
retain high prices? Naturally, business falls off
terribly during these little nippy spells.
Little bits of trampling,
Prints of little feet,
TMake our precious campus sod
Unrecognizable.
We were never quite able to formulate our policy
until recently, when somebody kindly expressed it
for us as follows: "The reduction of soda prices,
the promotion of general cussedness, and the foster-
ing of all that is evil."
Others' Opinions
GOOD MUSIC
(The Grand Rapids News)
One of the reasons for the success of the Dunbar
Opera company at Ramona theater is its insistence
upon a high standard of light opera and musical
comedies. There is a very real demand here for
good music, and the Dunbar company has given us
good music. Also it has presented capable singers.
We have the assurance of S. George Graves, gen-
eral manager of the Young and Chaffee Furniture
company, that the performances at Ramona have
stimulated the demand for the best class of Victrola
records. There is positive evidence that the city has
been benefited in a musical way by the light opera
presentatiA. It was the desire of the Ramona man-
agement to cater to the best element when it brought
the Dunbar company here for the summer, and it is
gratifying to know that the management has wit-
nessed the results so speedily.
"Undoubtedly," says Mr. Graves, "high class
music is one of the greatest agencies for good.
When people hear good music, they want more of
it, and not only that, but it makes them think better
and be better. Under my own observation has come
the fact that after people hear good music given by
an opera company, they buy the better class of rec-
ords, so that they may have the same thing in their
homes."
Some persons often wonder why the forward
looking people keep insisting upon what we all half-
sneeringly call "highbrow" stuff in music, on the
stage, in literature and in art. The fact is that if
the standard was not held high it would soon de-
teriorate. There are always a lot of persons hang-
ing on the skirts of every movement. If they are
left alone they will drag the movement down, no
matter what it is.
We need constantly to have the best in music, the
best in literature, the best in art, if only to counter-
balance the iazz. the nothoilers and the erazv ifutr-
