THE REAL UNIVERSITY
Once there was a college man who
tried to write a story typical only of
his own institution. In studying the
matter of stories typical to certain
schools, he could find only one or two
which seemed .real, and one was the
famous "Tom Browne's School Days."
Finally in the annals of his own in-
stitution this college man found an un-
substantiated legend to the effect that
in the dim past students had the right
to vote; that the students at one time
ran the city council, and ordered the
main street paved with gold bricks.
He seemed on the right track, but a
graduate of another university told him
the legend in the east of a student con-
trolled town wherein the students once
ordered the erection of a town hall one
mile long and two inches thick. Thus
there was similar legends in nearly
every institution, and none seemed to
have a basis of fact. But rumors
were not what he wanted.
In investigating the systems of vot-
ing, of societies, of freshmen caps, and
of athletic meets, he found that there
were no fundamental differences
whereby any one institution was un-
ique. Whenever one college strikes
upon a tradition, a dozen other schools
will seize upon it. Individuality of
college traditions, then, may simply
mean the trying out of all new, feasible
ideas, and the founder of the idea gets
whatever credit is deserved.
About the only things typical pure-
ly of his own college, were the peculiar
conditions of the campus buildings,
and the town and country surrounding
it. But many schools have their boule-
vard systems, their Sleepy Hollows,
their canoe course, their winning
spirit, and so on. Most writers of col-
lege life have presented flippant, un-
true atmospheres to the reading public.
Thus the particular college man in this
story could not conclude more than
that all American universities and col-
leges are, altogether, kinds of depart-
ments or divisions of the great Amer-
ican University. Surely the world is
in need of a writer who can conjure
up the main cross-lines which form
the complex of his own particular
school, and at the, same time show
these deep, vital, and earnest facts
which are truly a part of college life.
but which the non-college man and
woman, blinded by the superfluous ex-
ternals of rah-rah-dom, fail completely

ES IRES FEWER LETTERS
GRADUATE WANTS COMMUNICA-
TIONS TO DAILY SUBJECTED TO
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The disease of writing communica-
tions to The Daily has reached the
Every issue inflicts on the reader
the latest literary efforts of our em-
bryonic statesmen and budding phil-
osophers. The writers of these works
are consistently narrow-minded, dog-
matic, and immature. Their writings
reflect an overwhelming desire to
break into print, an ambition which is
realized as soon as The Daily pub-
lishes some of their stuff. The publi-
cation of their offerings becomes an
end in itself rather than as a means
to an end. Witness the masterpiece
appearing in the issue of Oct. 25,
signed "Freshman," in which the
writer laments the absence of "snub-
bers" on some of the Library chairs,
and pedantically closes with an al-
lusion to Benjamin Franklin. Could
anyone suppose he really contemplated
a remedy for the defect complained of?
If so, it would seem that he would ad-
dress his complaint to someone hav-
ing authority in the matter (it would
be very easy to find out who has
charge of such repairs) instead of in-
flicting his gems of thought on all the
readers of The Daily. Parallel cases
might be cited without number.
The writer is not attacking "com-
munications" as such, for undoubtedly
they may be made to perform a very
valuable function. What the writer
does advocate is a rigorous censor-
ship of such contributions, the keep-
ing out of those that are not upon
matters of general interest to the stu-
dent body. There is no reason why a
small number of cranks could be al-
lowed to monopolize so much space in
a publication whose proper function is
the supplying of news which is of some
general interest to its readers, the
Perhaps it will be asked, "Why do
you read these communications which
you say are not worth reading?" For
the same reason that one cannot re-
strain himself from biting on a sore
tooth. There is a resistless fascina-
tion about the pain from the tooth,
about the pain from the reading of the
communication. The only difference
is that in one case the pain is physical,
in the other mental.
This letter is written because of a
genuine interest in seeing The Daily
a better paper. Not that it isn't an
excellent paper now, but the writer
believes that it would be a much more
readable sheet, and much more at-
tractive, if most of the communica-
tions so unfortunately addressed to it
were not published in its columns.
And the writer is not the only one who
Further, the writer does not sign his
name because he has no desire to get
into a three weeks' squabble with
Daniel Webster the Second as to
whether his major premise will hold
water. He will cheerfully admit, to
any crank who, out of righteous in-
dignation at the views herein ex-
pressed, flies to the attack, that he is
not "possessed with the confidence of
