NOT LIKE THE HALCYON DAYS
Down on Ferry field there is a man
whom sports experts for nearly a score
of years have called one of the lead-
ers, if not the actual leader, in his
That man is Fielding H. Yost. An
explanation of the record he has carv-
ed here is unnecessary. Suffice it to
say that Michigan's athletic record
since Yost has coached here is un-
equaled by any other college or uni-
Yost is asking for more material
for the team. In the old days he
would have met with a jam unable
to be housed in the clu-house. To-
day what happens? A few men turn
out They are turned into star play-
ers. But a football team isn't made
up of eleven men. It can't be. Injur-
ies are too numerous. The loss of two
or three men from the team which
faced Case Saturday would put Yost's,
men but little above the par of many
schools one-third our size.
ost is crying for men. He needs
dalble substitutes. He is looking
not 1bnly to this year's team, but to
that of 1918, and 1919.
Possibly you can't play football
yourself.. If you are physically un-
fit, there is still a mission ahead of
you. Dig up some man who can and
see that he is sent out there every
College journalism is one of the un-
appreciated arts. It is strange that
so many students fail to take advan-
tage of the training that is at hand
for them. As a course in University
training it has any other campus ac-
tivity beat so far that there is no
comparison. Yet the opportunity in
the past has been somewhat sadly
neglected. It is, therefore, with a
real satisfaction that The Illini wel-
comes the people who have applied
in the past week for places on the
For the first time in years, an
abundance of reporters has apeared
in anxious endeavor to do a part of
the work of putting out the daily
sheet. There is a fine opportunity
for literary training as well as the
best opportunity on the campus for
getting acquainted with everybody.
There is still extant in some places,
unfortunately, the attitude that news-
paper writing is a sort of degraded
calling, which requires no especial in-
tellect and no especial capabilities be-
yond the knowledge of what a type-
writer keyboard looks like. That's
where most people are wrong.
If there is any branch of writing
that is more exacting on the writer's
ability than newspaper writing, it is
yet to be discovered. One has only
to try writing a news story to discov-
er what principles are necessary. The
man or woman who can sit down and
write an acceptable story in the lim-
ited time reporters have to turn in
their copy is a real writer. This sort
of writing teaches, above everything
else, the ability to say a thing with
accuracy and clearness in a very lim-

After all there are some joys in
being a freshman, and many an up-
perclassman feels a bit jealous of the
free meals during rushing season.
The character of a man can easily
be told by the letters he carries in
his inside coat pocket.
How many extra miles have you
walked since school opened simply
because a new library is being built
and a few of the walks are fenced off?

In the Thursday issue of the Brown

Women at Iowa are going to put a
ban on bright-colored yarns. One of
the leaders of the movement said re-
cently that "the soldiers need sweat-
ers more than we do."
Sections in the stand at Oberlin will
be reserved for use of women stu-
dents if plans of the women are car-
ried through: The women are to

strive their utmost to outyell the men.
No more dates! The University of
Kansas freshmen have to go to the
football games this year unescorted
by women. They (the upperclassmen,
of course) have had the old forms of
punishment abolished, the blanket and
the paddle, but they hope to find some
new forms just as effectual.

Daily Kansan devoted good space of
its front page to an obituary of "Bill."
Dr. Elmer Dershem, a former mem-
ber of the physics department at the
University of Iowa, is the discoverer
of a device to focus X-rays. The de-
vice used is a barrel shaped cavity
lined with paraffin, open at both ends
and lined with mica. The rays which
enter from one end are prevented
from passing through the other end by
a proper sized lead plate. They are
deflected from the sides of the barrel
and focused in this manner.
Dr. S. T. Pope, assistant professor
of surgery at the University of Cali-
fornia, has recently published an ar-
ticle in the Sunset magazine in which
he describes his experiences in hunt-
ing with the bow and arrow. An In-
dian who was caught near Chico was
the doctor's teacher in this forgotten
art and during a number of years
while the Indian was being kept by
the department of anthropology they
went on several hunting trips together
and baggbd a few deer.

Clarissa Vyn, '18, for delegation lead-
er, 20 members of the Michigan Y. W.

west colleges for the purpose of re-

Lectures, and Bible and mission

evening hours, while the afternoons
were devoted to recreation. Athletics
figured extensively in these times of
good-fellowship. In the intercollegi-
ate swimming tournament our Mich-

Other enjoyable events in the an-
nals of the conference were the boat-
ride around the lake,; with a half
hour stop at Geneva City, and the
mammoth bon-fire on a nearby hill
after an evening lecture.

was driving one of the Stoeb bakery

which Mr. Sodt was driving down Lib-

payment of the damages.

states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois
are among the speakers. Northville
is expecting 15,000 visitors. Washte-

That the American Red Cross so-
ciety does not sell knitted outfits to
the soldiers is the correction to a
rumor branded as false by Harvey D.
Gibson, general manager of the Red
Cross society. Stories without foun-
dation are being circulated that the
soldiers must buy the articles knitted
by' the organization. This hurts the
cause, according to Mr. Gibson. Those
who use the Red Cross name without
permission for sales and benefits will
be prosecuted, are the orders received
by the local chapter.
