SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1917.
Night Editor-Barry M. Carey
A cordial, friendly spirit has char-
acterized the comments in the college
dailies of the "Big Nine" upon the news
of Michigan's probable return to the
conference. We have previously stated
that Michigan will not have to swal-
low its pride in returning to the con-
ferences, and that the advantages of.
such action would be of benefit both to
Michigan and to the conference. This
opinion is borne out by the statements
of our contemporaries who reflect the
student sentiment of universities in
"Michigan wofld add a tone to the
conference, which to us seems desir-
able," says the Daily Illini of the Uni-
versity of Illinois. "We should be will-
ing to r eet her half way in any peace
move. We shall be glad to see the
boys from Ann Arbor competing in
the Armory on March 3."
Minnesota sentiment which has al-
ways been friendly to Michigan is
summed up in this statement from the
Minnesota Daily: "Rumors come from
Ann Arbor to the effect that the Wol-
verines are willing to come back-
even anxious-but that they are not
willing to come as suppliants. We do
not blame them. They should not be
forced to beg admittance to a group
in which they always ranked near the
top, and which they left for the just-
ifiable purpose of bettering their in-
terests. If they have found that the
conference is where they belong, they
should join it again. Minnesota will
welcome such a step.'
HOW ABOUT THE SENIOR CANES?
Some Michigan seniors are going to
buy senior canes this spring, and a
few are going to carry them. Some
other Michigan seniors are not even
going to buy canes.
This condition should not exist. If
the senior cane is to become a tradi-
tion, the whole class should stand unit-
ed. But there are many seniors who
do not believe that the class cane is
a custom worthy of becoming a Mich-
Just as the cap and gown is consid-
ered more appropriate for University
seniors than an English walking coat,
so to some it appears that a more
fitting class emblem could be secured
than a cane. It is not in accord with
a truly democratic spirit. Senior eye-
glasses would be as fitting. Senior
dancing pumps would probably be
It is now too late for the present
seniors to make a change. Many men
have bought their canes. But let the
juniors look the matter squarely in
the face. Will they want to continue
the custom of carrying canes a year
from now? If not, let them realize
the fact before the sticks have beep
How carefully the police edict to
have Ann Arbor's side-walks cleaned
has been obeyed.
At this time in the year ambition
grows in the student mind to "Make
$2,000 and expenses this summer."

THIE MICHIGAN DAILY WISHES TO
HIRE ONE "HONEST AND TRUE"
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Many of those who attended Pro-
fessor Nearing's lecture Friday even-
ing were somewhat chagrined, possi-
bly disgusted, to read The Daily write-
up in the Saturday issue. It is pos-
sible that such persons are deluding.
themselves when they think The Daily
ought to be representative. Reporters
may possess the power, ex-officio, to
censor and to decide upon the particu-
lar important thoughts in a speaker's
theme for the student body. The writ-
er, however, has yet to grant these
premises without qualifications.
In this particular case the reporter,
whoever he may have been, clearly
has failed to give accurately an ac-
count of Professor Nearing's theme.
In fact, the item reported happened
to be merely a side thought in answer
to a question propounded during the
closing minutes of an hour and a half
lecture. To some, 90 minutes spent
on such a theme as an analysis of the
poberty situation in our country, which
has been shown to include 30,000,000

be idle dissertation, not worthy of
a university man's attention, espe-
cially when the foreshadowing ques- that though he may have analyized the
