Why, surely you must have, at
some time or other. Or, perhaps, the
process in which you were engaged
was not known by this particular
name. The chances are that, after a
night and morning of agonizing and
protracted study, you informed your
friend that you had been "boning."
Now, if you are careful of your spell-
ing, you will no longer use this in-
correct form-for it has been found
to be incorrect. The proper spelling
is bohn, bohned, bohned.
The word originally meant to study
or read the Bohn library, generally
considered very dry reading matter.
It has since come to be synonymous
with craming, or last-minute prepara-
tion for an examination.
Columbus, Jan. 11.-Ohio State's
basket tossers will travel to Ann Ar-
bor for a contest with the Michigan
quintet Saturday night. Confidence
reigns supreme in the Ohio camp, for
the team's record so far is an enviable
one and its followers are not looking
for a setback at the hands of the Wol-
verines. Two strong Detroit fives have
already fallen victims to their prow-
ess-the Y. M. O. and Y. M. C. A.
quintets having both been conquered.
Captain Bolen is the only veteran on
the team. He plays a strong game at
guard, and will undoubtedly cause
the Michigan forwards much trouble.
Nemecek handles the other guard, and
Kennedy, a rangy lad, holds down the
center position. The forwards will
probably be Francis - and Davis, al-
though Matheny may start In the lat-
ter's place.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
All members of the board in control
of athletics are heartily in favor of
carrying out the su'ggestion to the
fullest extent possible made by Prof.
E. .D. Campbell in his communication
appearing in the Friday morning is-
sue of The Daily.
As a matter of fact, the board in
control of athletics has anticipated
Professor Campbell's suggestion by
seven months, for at its meeting of
June 16, 1917, the board unanimous-
ly passed a resolution, one clause of
which reads as follows: "Be it furth-
er resolved, that in case of a resump-
tion of intercollegiate athletic activi-
ties, that a percentage of the net pro-
fits of the football season of 1917 be
turned over to the American Red
Cross." Subsequently, it was determ-
ined to devote a portion of the net re-
ceipts of the 1917 football season, not
necessarily to the Red Cross, but to
any deserving war charity or relief
activity. In line with this determina-
tion a contribution of $1,500 was re-
cently made by the Athletic associa-
tion to the American University Union
in Europe.
That the Athletic association has
been heavily indebted to local banks
by reason of the construction of the
cement football stand, that each col-
lege year intramural activities, inter-
collegiate track, tennis and baseball
are all conducted at substantial loss-
es must not be overlooked. The stu-
dent fee receipts and intercollegiate
football alone result in net profits.
The athletic department of Michigan
was one of the very first of all classes
to take action to devote a portion
of receipts to a war relief activity.
This policy will be continued, and all
that can safely be set aside for such
purposes will be so contributed. Rigid
economy has been practiced in every
way possible and practical to the end
that the most might be obtained in
beneficial results to the student body
at large, Michigan has won the hearty
commendation of those who advocate
athletics for the student body as a
whole, Without a question of doubt
the athletic department of the Univer-
sity has accomplished more along
these lines than that of any other in-
stitutior of like standing and size in
the country. The Athletic association
must meet its obligations both athlet-
ically and financially, or justification
of its existence may well be question-
ed. It does not intend to place money
in permanent improvements at this
time, but it must safeguard its proper-
ty and its reputation financially.
To my mind no question has been
raised by Professor Campbell which
calls for an expression of opinion on
the part of anyone, for the Athletic
association, in my opinion, has met
the issue he raises fairly and
squarely some seven months ago.

Rhetoric Students To Get More Book
Purchase of additional volumes for
the use of rhetoric students was pro-
vided for by the Library committee
at its December meeting. In addi-
tion to the $270 appropriated for the
rhetoric department, $200 was alloted
for the purchase of books in the field
of industrial education, the money to
be expended under the direction of
Prof. George E. Myers.
Architects May Enlist In Reserve
Students in architecture, as holders
of a technical degree, are to be in-
cluded in the eligibility list for pre-

ferred classification. -The architect-
ural student receives as much train-
ing in general engineering construct-
ion as the regular army engineer, and,
as in the case of the engineer, is qual-
iWed to enlist in the engineer reserve
No New Cases of Mumps at Newberry
No new cases of mumps have devel-
oped at Newberry residence thus far.3
The one victim is greatly improved1
but is being kept apart for the protect-I
ion of the others. The next few days
will probably decide the fate of the,
anxious residents, as the time limit1
for contracting the disease after ex-7
posure is almost up.7

of the amount of work accomplished'
and the interest displayed.
