AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION, ETC.
Along. North University avenue
there is a long dark vista of trees
that arch over the street car tracks.
Last Sunday night a woman was kill-
ed there by a street car. About a year
ago Superintendent Draper, of the Un-
iaersity hospital, lost his life in the
In the last tragedy the motorman
has been absolved from all blame.
Perhaps the victim was to blame, and
perhaps the system. But that is not
the real question. What safety de-
vices will be established to prevent
further accidents? Scores of univer-
sity and high school students pass
through this dangerous territory every
day. It is suggested that bright lights
could be maintained at slight expense
along the danger zone. Perhaps bet-
ter brakes and headlights might be in-
stalled in the cars. Whatever remedy
is best should be installed as soon as
CLAIMS THAT GODDARD IS WRONG
IN SAYING THAT MICHIGAN
SONG IS PROFANITY.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
It is with astonishment that the
reader notes the letter of protest in
Thursday's Daily in regard to the ed-
itorial on the subject of profanity at
Having somewhat of an inside
knowledge of the workings of the Ath-
lethic association, and knowing the
purposes for which mass meetings
are held, the writer takes it upon him-
self to write these few lines. The
purpose of mass meetings is to in-
still "pep" into Michigan students for
the support-and the violent support
of its athletic teams. To do this we
assemble a crowd for the express in-
tent of yelling, cheering and otherwise
arousing enthusiasm. According to
several, at the last mass meeting, pro-
fanity was resorted to by the crowd,
said profanity consisting of the
ing of "Hail, Hail, the Gang's All
H-ere, What the H- do we care, etc."
The discussion seems to hinge on
the word"H-." This venerable and
useful word does not seem to the writ-
er to come under the head of profan-
ity in this case. The dictionary says
that profanity is "blasphemy or irrev-
erence of or to things holy and vener-
able." The question then becomes:
is "Hell" a thing or place of reverence?
Years ago the writer heard Billy Sun-
day-the Reverend William Sunday-
speak and he distinctly remembers
that "H-" was spoken of in any-
thing but terms of reverence. So much
for the profanity of "H-" as an ex-
pression. The writer does not believe
that the strictest theologian can class
"H-- as profanity-rather say that
it is slang of a lower sort.
Aside from this attitude, in which
the writer believes Mr. Goddard un-
justifiable, there is another way in
which to look at it. Michigan needed
for last Saturday's game all the en-
thusiasm which her student body could
produce, all the cheering which it could
put forth, and if Michigan students
have to resort to the use of such terri-
ble songs as "Hail, Hail, etc." the writ-
er says go to it! Ever since I have
been in school, the crowds wherever
gathered have sung this song and to
me the "standards of manhood" at
Michigan have not noticeably deter-
iorated. Neither do I believe that in
the singing of this song, Michigan
men have departed from the "realms
of decency and courtesy." As far as
the university women are concerned, I
do not believe that they will be in-
sulted if I say that I do not doubt but
that they sang it themselves, and even,
inwardly at least, cursed the Farmers
with the rest of us.
True gentlemen have rich red blood,
'tis true and upon occasions the writ-

DR. HALL SPEAKS TO WOMEN
Registrar Discusses Principles of True
Judgment In Life.
"The Proper Proportions of Things,"
was the subject of Dr. A. G. Hall's talk
to university women yesterday after-
noon at Newberry hall. The principles
underlying true judgments were dis-
cussed in their application to such
phases of college life as hazing and
cheating. Various types of honor
systems were mentioned by Doctor
Hall, who declared that the difficulty
can easily be solved when students
learn to see things in their true pro-
"Even the commonest acts of every-
day life require a constant weighing
and comparing of values," said Doctor
Hall. "The person who cannot learn
to judge quickly and accurately of the
relative importance of things is al-
ways at a disadvantage. It is easy
to decide rightly in regard to the large
things because we bring more weight
and energy to bear on them than on
the smaller things, but the strength
of one's character depends on the hab-
its he has formed of disposing of these
