Editor, The Michigan Daily:
We'll not assume that my poor little
Is able to compete against & "law,"
But let us try to get our little laugh,
Not learn too much from what that
author saw.
Good clothes, good manners, even
aesthetic souls,
Are found quite near the engineer-
ing arch;
And brother law must no in haste
Slight rudeness for impeding Prog-
ress' march.
If college years of training and of
In logic aimed to help our little
Still lets him generalize as he does,
Oh, what gigantic task we have to
Our brother law assumes all engineers
But once removed from caveman or
the lout;
And, generalizing in his careless way,
Apparently he puts our clan to rout.
In even classic phrases he assails;
His flow of words commands admir-
ing awe;
But truthfully, I feel real pity for
The outraged dignity of brother law.
"Let not ambition mock their useful
Should be his word; should not take
us to task;
Our medieval brains can't understand
All-work, and love, and brother's
sneering mask.
So let us work and live on in our bliss,
We're eager to let quibbling "'laws"
What our rude natures, struggling to-
ward the light,
