Be a Michigan man and follow Mich-
gan traditions.
1. We should wean the Freshman
aps, or toques, at all times, excepting
undays.
2. We should hide all our prep
chool insignia.
3. We should not smoke pipes on
ie campus.
4. We should never sit on the senior
enches.:
5. We should always allow a man
f higher' class to precede us through
door.
6. We should attend all mass meet-
ngs, and class functions.
7. We should talk only seldom in
he presence of older students who kre
villing to talk.
8. We should learn "The Yellow
,nd the Blue" as soon as possible.
9. We should take part in all class
ontests.
10. We should speak to every mem-
er of our class (i. e., among the men),]

Real Advice Much Different
Advice for freshmen is altogether.
ifferent. The advice usually handed
ut can not be universally applied be-
ause of the vast difference between
te make-up of the individuals. The
dvice which is usually rejected flatly
y first year men is the brand which
ierely says to behave oneself. Some
f the best specifio suggestions are
numerated below:
Choose Courses Carefully
In picking courses get the advice
f some older student who seems to
.ave been successful in the course you
re contemplating. Always consult a'
aculty man, if you are afraid of hav-
ng students "kid" you.
Don't pick snap courses because

iring 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;
concentrate, and be systematic.
Look U~p Fraternities
If invited a second time 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 af-
ter graduation.
Never tell of the wonderful thing's
you did in your high school. Nearly
everyone at Michigan was once a class
president, valedictorian, football cap-
tain, or something just as good.
Deal honorably with merchants.
Write plenty of letters home which
will interest primarily those you are,
writing to.
M.A.C. Guardsmen Keep Up Classwork
M. A. C. officials are making an
effort to enable college seniors who
are with the state guard on the Mex-
ican border to graduate with #their
class next June. Books have been sent
to all such students, with detailed in-
structions as to courses of study, writ-
ten work and examinations, and the
president of the agricultural college
announces that every effort will be
made to enable the student guardsmen
to keep up their collegiate work.

J. HN.MAKS RESIGNS TO
TAKE DETROIT POSITION
L. R. Flook Takes Place of Former
Superintendent of Buildings
and Grounds[
James H. Marks, formerly superin-
tendent of buildings and grounds forl
the university, resigned from that po-
sition on September 15, to take a posi-
tion with the Packard Motor company
in Detroit, as their plant-maintenance
superintendent. In his new position
Mr. Marks will have charge of 800 of
the company's employees and will sup-
erintend construction amounting to
$1,000,000 a year. He has been suc-
ceeded in the office at the university
by Lyman R. Flook, '13 C.'E., who has
been with the buildings and grounds
department for several years and is
now directing the work as acting su-
perintendent.
Mr. Marks still is a young man.
While in the university he studied
mechanical engineering and was grad-
uated in 1908. While a student he
worked out the details of the new ob-
servatory, including the 38-inch re-
flector telescope, and in 1909, after he
had been appointed constructing archi-
tect for the university, he built the
telescope and the new observatory. He
also designed the eye and ear ward

for the university hospital, and re-
modelled the economics building and
the physiology and pharmacology
building.
He was appointed acting superin-
tendent of buildings and grounds on
July 1, 1910, and on February 1, 1911,
he succeeded Thomas B. Turnbull as
superintendent. Mr. Marks complete-
ly reorganized and systematized the
buildings and grounds department.
He centralized the branches and
built up a system that ranks with
and built up a system that ranks with
the best in the country. Among the
important units of the system which
he built up are the storehouses, equip-
ped with machinery to do all the work
of hauling and repairing needed, and
the new central power plant for the
whole university.
Y. M. C. A. Classes Start This Week

pointed secretary of the city Y. M. C.
A., has announced that gymnasium

ing. By way of opening the season, a
banquet was held at the "Y" Friday
evening, September 29, which was at-
tended by about 30 members of the
university faculty and Ann Arbor busi-
ness men. Plans were laid for both
business and professional men's gym
