Value of Seals
A large, rugged looking man stop-
ped in front of a Red Cross seal booth.
"Are Christmas Red Cross seals to
help the folks that are suffering with
consumption?" he asked of the lady.
The social worker for the anti-tub-
erculosis association told him that it
"Then," he said, "drawing out a
coin, "I am going to buy some seals.
My wife died the year after we were
married. She died of consumption.
We were happy and I had done every-
thing I could for her, but I didn't have
much money then and times were

work so late. I had to do the house-
work. That took a lot of time, they
docked me and finally discharged me.
It was the middle of winter, too.

wife. So I am going to buy these seals

there in idleness that Rudolph's fath-
er, a wealthy gentleman, decides that
would be best for his son to leave
Austria and he is sent to far-off Am-
erica to make his own fortune. Ru-
dolph secretly has fallen in love with
Mizzi, a flower-girl at The Blue Para-
dise Inn and he promises to return for
her when he has accomplished his
purpose in going to a strange land. It
is twenty-four years later, when after
accumulating a fortune in Chicago,
that Rudolph revisits his former home
with the idea of again meeting his old
sweetheart from whom he has not
heard in all that-time. On arriving in
Vienna he meets his former compan-
ions, only to find that they have aged
and are not at all the same as they
used to be, but they all decided to
have one more grand night at The
Blue Paradise Inn. Rudolph hopes to
see the flower-girl forgetting that she
too must have aged, and is astonished
when she appears before him, but it
soon develops that it is not she at all
but her daughter. Rudolph consoles
himself by marrying the widow of his

Despite the fact that stage histor-
ians declare that mjst people connect-
ed with the theater are inclined to be
superstitious, there is no record that
either Victor Herbert or Henry Blos-
som are in the least inclined that way.
If they were, however, they could not
be blamed for always insisting that
Fred G. Latham stage their musical
plays. It was in the course of a cur-
tain speech, at the opening perform-
ance of "The Only Girl," in New York,
that Mr. Herbert made the state-
ment that Latham had never staged a
failure for the firm of Herbert and
Blossom. He also took occasion to cite
the success of "Mlle. Modiste," "TheI
Prima Donna," "The Red Mill," and
"The Only Girl," their delightful mu-
sical comedy which comes to the Whit-
ney theater on Saturday, Dec. 9, for a
return engagement, as instances where
their triumvirate has always been
greeted with success.
Vr II ;%IGARRICK
One of the most valuable fossil speci-
mens to be presented to the Univer-
sity has just been received at the
museum and is the gift of Dr. E. L.
Troxell, a graduate of Yale, and for
one year an instructor in geology at
Dr. Troxell has devoted consider-
able time to the collection of fossils
throughout the west, and his latest
find, the skull and limb bones of the
mesohippus, ancestor of the horse, was
unearthed in the Oligocene deposit of
western Nebraska. The specimen is of
special interest to'the student of
paleontology and organic evolution,
since the history of the horse contains
fewer missing links than that of any
living animal, with the possible ex-
ception of the elephant.
The fossil bones of the mesohippus
were found imbedded in soft clay, and
were excellently preserved.' The speci-
men will be placed on exhibit in the
museum at some time in the immediate

TRAMURAL SPORTS ARE SHAME-
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Just a few pertinent words concern-
ing Michigan's system interclass 'ath-
letics by one who has paid some at-
tention to it for the last four years.
It is rotten. I have seldom seen the
coaches which the intramural depart-
ment has provided for the class foot-
ball teams. Teams have been forced
to play games after dark and on grid-
irons knee-deep with mud. Two games
were played yesterday in a driving
rain. And to top it ff, after playing
a hard game one cannot even get a
shower. There has been no water in
the interclass locker house for the last
four weeks. From the way the games
are handled it seems that men have
been chosen to officiate who are look-
ing for experience and the class teams
have been made the goats. I've seen
many games played, and the great
majority of them have been marked by
wrangling, stalling, and dirty playing.
Why not have officials who know what
a game of football is-so that the play-
ers, at least, can get some satisfac-
tion out of the game? Where have
those in charge of interclass athletics'
been while the boys have been float-
ing around by moonlight? How many
interclass baseball games have been
refereed by men who know baseball-
men provided by the intramural de-
partment? Here anyone with nerve
has been able to officiate by merely
voicing his desire. The situation has
been better in regard to interclass=
track and basketball, but there is still
room for improvement.
Let others who have followed inter-
class athletics for a few years openly
state their opinions and maybe some-
one will wake up and do something for
those who are athletically inclined.
Why doesn't the athletic association
ask for suggestions for bettering Mich-
igan athletics? Let us start some dis-
cussion of the subject and help to
make interclass athletics cleaner and
