Governor Green may have had an
eye for the taxpayer's approval when
he advocated a radical reform in ithe
taxing of personal property. Regard-
less of his motives, the idea will meet
with sympathy from all parts of the
coUnnfry, for both city real estate and
farm property are hearing too great
=a load already.
1eavy taxation is only one of the
farmer's numerous worries, and it is
small wonder that he is restless. He
sees manufacturing and shipping pro-
teCtd with the taxes from his own
toil in the hot sun; his-requests for
help fall on indifferent ears. Agri-
cultural resentment is growing stead-
The farmer works in the heat and
the cold,, in tire drought and the rain.
ie plows the land, plants the seeds
and the shrubs, sprays and fights in-
sects, har=ests the crops---if the weath-
er spares any--pays heavy freight
rates on his produce, sees the com-
.ission merchant extract a fat per-
enag. The farmer then has the ex-
quisite fun of watching the middleman,
in one swift, smooth transaction, take
his pound of flesh-usually from 100

the next spring either his assessed

dition of agriculture, Certainly it

The American Federation of Labhor
is the last place one would usuay
look for alarmist and conservative res-r

pan-American congTess, the delegates
fell for the Red Terror myth, and
adopted a resolution decrying "An in-

communists to convince people of the
truth of their doctrines.

THIS IS ABOUT THE only time of
the Summer session that is anything
like the middle of the year and the
only time when students are leaving.
The fact of the matter is that some of
the Law students are about to leave
Ann Arbor. Accordingly, since we re-
yet their leaving us we offer them
this toast:
The bride may kiss the groom goodbye,
The flower may be kissed by the
The sparkling wine may kiss my glass,
But you, my dears,-----farewell!
AN) THUS THE lawyers leave us!
onts this is the Sumner session and
none of them will be requested to leave
at once. To is who are here for
the whole year it is nothing to see
many students going home because of
poor health, financial dificulty and al
those who admit the low grades.
AND NOW TO JUMP to the land
of sports, we see that New York and
Chicago are debating over the ques-
tion of,which shall have the Dempsey-
Tunney fight. Personally, we are of
the opinion that the cities concerned
will debate until two days before the
fight and then that promoter, Tex
Rickard, will have it just where he
wants it anyway.
that the two cities call out their re-
spetive bands of gunmen and stage
a regular battle over the affair. We
are sure that every casualty would
be a gain for society, but fear that
the Chicago machine gun artists
would have little trouble in doing
away with the New Yorkers and the
Eastern metropolis would be the only
city to benefit by the battle.
columns we find that Mr. Dempsey is
not such a bad sort after all. it
seems that the intelligent, wonderful,
ox-marine who was acclaimed the
world's champion after he slapped the
great Dempsey on the wrist a few
times, is in trouble that an honorable
and intelligent fighter should not be
in. Several friends, who are no more,
of the intelligent boxer and thinking
of bringing suit to collect various
amounts of money that he is supposed
to owe them. Verily, this game of
prize fighting should take a bath.
of sports we turn again to the gov-
ernors' meeting at the northern end
of the state. Ralph Brewster, the
governor of the State of Maine, said
that it took 25 years to make the
state of Maine bone dry. Well, well,
well, there is still a little time to en-
joy oneself in the dry United States.
Maine is small, and if it took 25 years
to dry up a little bit of land like that
state we predict that the United
States will not go dry for at least an-
other 5 years. Take cheer, my heart-
ies, one may still live and enjoy him-
self, if he is careful of what he en-
. . !
Arbor and our campus we regret that
the B. and 0. boys are actively ruin-
ing our campus. What with their
putting down all new sidewalks for
the heavy roller skate traffic of the
coming year, we fear that students
will be lost in the maize of walks'
when they return for their studies in

the fall; and then they will either
have to make paths on the walks or
be lite to classes. We are sure they
will be late in order to comply with
the request of the. secretary's office.
LAST OF ALL WE must announce
that the judges in the scenario con-
test are busy judging. It is hoped
that the winner will receive the prom-
ised sandwiches, but Rolls strongly
suspects that Kernel stole the sand-
wiches for a picnic he attended last

Felt and Fabric Designs
These felts have a soft flexibility of crown and brim, and
are stitched trimming and intricate handwork, which gives--
then that individual touch. The crowns 'are draped in
becoming folds, while. the brims are rippled becomingly :f
around the face. Brimless hats, too, you will find at the
top notch of the vogue. Another new note is the velvet
trimming-little inserts here and there, that give each hat
a real personality.
Maria Guy, Mme. Agnes, Suzanne Talbot, Reboux and
many other French designers have been used for these
models by Hylands, Yvette and Tenne, whose hats we carry.
