ALL THAT WAS IS NOT TRADITION
Its traditions are among the most
sacred of a University's possessions.
This simple fact is appreciated by
nearly every college student. Many
old customs, happenings, or occur-
rences are not necessarily traditions.
This second fact is not appreciated by
a large number of college students.
A tradition is a thing which is to
be lived up to and respected not only
because it is an established custom,
followed by generations of under-
graduates, but also because it con-
tains some constructive element ben-
eficial to the university. Consequently
there are many things that have oc-
curred year after year at Michigan
and at other universities that are not
tradition. In the heat of the Fresh-
Soph contests to be held this week
the underclassmen should keep in
mind the distinction between real tra-
dition and obsolete custom.
Rowdy conduct, damaging theaters,
and hazing are obsolete customs. The
established flag-ruch and cane-spree,
instituted by the student council, are
MILITARY TRAINING MEETING
HELD TONIGHT AT UNION
L. M. Lyons, '19M, announced last
night that a meeting of those inter-
ested in *military training will be held
at the Union at 7:45 o'clock tomorrow
night. After a brief business meeting
a short drill will be held. All those
students who took part in the drills
last spring are reuested to be present.
Adams Fined for Driving Too Fast
Theodore Adams, son of Prof. H. C.
Adams, was fined $10 and $3.45 costs
for speeding by local police officers
yesterday. Adams was arrested for
speeding last Tuesday night.
STUDENTS FAIL TO CHEER FOR
INJURED OPPONENTS IN MAN.
NER FORMERLY USED.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Michigan has long been known for
her sportsmanlike spirit. In all ath-
letic contests she has always shown
good sportsmanship. One manifesta-
tion of this is cheering for opponents
when they are injured in football
When a Michigan man is injured in
an athletic contest the stands shout
out their traditional "Yea, fight 'em,
fight 'em, fight 'em," following the
name of the injured player. The cus-
tom in the past has always been that
when an opponent is injured, his name
should be cheered three times, but
it has never been a Michigan custom
to shout the traditional "fight 'em"
after the name of an opponent.
This year this tradition seems to be
on the wane. The fault, however, lies
principally with the cheer leaders. In
the early games of this football sea-
son the yell leaders have invariably
led the crowds in the stands to hitch
the "fight 'em" onto the end of a yell
for an opponent. Evidence that the
crowds are not in sympathy with this
is shown by the fact that the crowds
respond but half-heartedly to these
attempts of the leaders. And it is
safe to assume, I think, that the fresh-
men, who probably know no better,
make most of this noise. At any rate,
the "fight 'ems" drag, out woefully
when shouted after the name of an op-
Michigan men should follow preced-
ent and not yell "fight 'em" after an
injured opponent's name. Or if they
do, the attempt should not be the
mournful one that it is. The half-
hearted attempts that have been made
this year are worse than none at all.
Let the cheer leaders take heed of this
and lead the crowds the way they
have been led in the past. Let us
cheer a plucky opponent, but let us
differentiate between our feeling for
him and that for one of our own men.
Let us all be Michigan men.
