OUTLINES TRADITIONS
FOR THE FRESHMAN
New men at Michigan are beginning
to wonder by this time what is ex-
pected of them and what they should
do or not do. With this in mind a
Daily reporter sought out one of the
old seniors on the campus and the fol-
lowing is what this man thinks makes
a model freshman. These rules are
based upon this man's personal experi-
ence and upon his experience as a
member of an organization which has
close connection with all student ac-
tivities.
Be a Michigan man and follow Mich-
igan traditions.
1. We should wear the freshman
caps, or toques, at all times, excepting
Sundays.
2. We should hide all our prep
school insignia.
3. We should not smoke pipes on
the campus.
4. We should never sit on the
senior benches.
5. We should always allow a Oman
of higher class to precede us through
a door.
6. We should attend all mass meet-
ings, and class functions.
7. We should talk only seldom in
the presence of older students who are
willing to talk.
8. We should learn "The Yellow
and the Blue" as soon as possible.
9. We should take part in all class
contests.
10. We should speak to every mem-
ber of our class (i. e., among the men),
whether an introduction has been giv-
en or not.
11. We should not occupy any of
the seats in the first five rows of the
Majestic.
Real Advice Much Different
Advice for freshmen is altogether
different. The advice usually handed
out can not be universally applied be-
cause of the vast difference between
the make-up of the individuals. The
advice which is usually rejected flatly
by first year men is the brand wich
merely says to behave oneself. Some
of the best specific suggestions are
enumerated below:
Choose Courses Carefully
In picking courses get the advice
of some older student who seems to
have been successful in the course you
are contemplating. Always consult a
faculty man, if you are afraid of hav-
ing students "kid" you.
Don't pick snap courses because
they are easy.
Don't worry too much about special-
izing the first year. Get plenty of
culture, and try to feel out the sort

of thing you really do want for a life
work. Keep up your studies well;I
concentrate,"and be ,stenat c.
elok Ip rratern tie
If invited a ,econd tife to a fra-
ternity. look up its records. Find out
how it stands.nationally. Ask two or
three independent upperclassmen how'
it stands on the campus. Try to pene-
trate through the glamor of the rush-
ing season into the real characters of
the fraternity members. If you don't
intend to join if asked, refuse the
third invitation. If you are sure you
need and want fraternity life and can
afford it, accept. Do not feel badly if
not asked to join. "Independent" is
not a word of reproach at Michigan.
Never talk fraternity to fraternity
members.
Learn to Meet Men
Learn how to meet men; how to
remember faces and names.
Sign up for The Daily, and as many
other publications as you care for
Few students ever regret Joining the
Union which provides the quintessence
of social existence in Ann Arbor. The
Y. M. C. A. is fine for students who do
outside work, and those who are in-
terested in religious discussions,
social service work. There are sev-
eral debating and oratorical societies
open to freshmen. The choral union
and church choirs give training in
music. Go to church and recitals and
lectures. Be on time for classes.
Never solicit a vote for an office.
By an acquaintance to everybody; pick
friends you think will be big men after
graduation.
Never tell of the wonderful things

you did in your high school. Nearly 91n Fel3?r Ceas Lugr 8fri
