HIGH PRICES AND EDUCATION
Prices today are on the wing. Each
new sunset and sunrise adds to the
money power placed upon products.
Money is cheap.
Can not students place a higher
value upon the product which each is
now seeking, and receive more from
the education they came to Michigan
When going to the classroom, make
up your mind to remember what the
instructor says. It should be valu-
able to you, otherwise the instructor's
efforts and your own are largely
wasted. If given references, look them
up. Do more than is asked of you,
more than you need to do to "get by"
This achieved, your next step is to
pick flaws. If the instructor is right,
don't be discouraged. You are de-
veloping originality. If Columbus had
accepted the theory that the world
was flat he would never have discov-
ered America. There is plenty of room
for more like him.
Index your knowledge. A smooth
smattering of it may be the proper
thing in the drawing room or at the
adance, but the world doesn't swallow
your dose unless you show them.
Once you have done these things
you will still find you still lack much.
You can keep on all during your life.
But you can pat your own intellectual
back in one respect. You have put
a new, higher value upon your own
IN KEEPING WITH THE TIMES
Major Wilfred Wilson and others on
the campus are unanimous in de-
claring that the Star Spangled Banner
should be played by the band before
the start of each football game. For
one reason or another, America's na-
tional anthem was entirely forgotten
before the first game of the year.
The idea is an excellent one, and
should be caught up at once. The band
is not expected to be present on Fer-
ry field this afternoon, but will be at
the Mt. Union contest.
The greater part of the "Didya have
a good summer" handshaking being
over, don't forget to speak to a friend
of yours on the street.
A weak mind is like a microscope,
which magnifies trifling things, but
cannot receive great ones.
To be truthful now-after two days
of 7:30 classes don't you wish to ex-
press yourself alone and at length
about the person who started this
whole European trouble.
Our leading punster has informed us
that the allies seem to be ripping the
seat out of the war.
The uniform still attracts 'em. Any-
way that's the office gossip.

the alleged unpatriotic utterances of
