Editor, The Michigan Daily:
- Just a few lines in regard to the
new course in manners for.the en-
gineers suggested by our friend Mr. A
of the Law school. I enjoyed his
article immensely, both from a poetic
and humorous standpoint, because, as
an engineer, I enjoy poetry and was
also forced to laugh at the abstruse
dissertation and logic of our more
or less professional colleague.
Personally, I do not doubt that I
need a course in etiquette for daring
to doubt the wisdom of our Beau
Brummel at the other end of the diag-
onal walk, but I am forced to say that
such logic would hardly "get him by"
in the practice law court, to say noth-
ing of meeting real lawyers.
To be more explicit, Mr. A takes the
cases of two engineers who do not
fulfill his ideas of politeness, and be-
cause they are somewhat rude, he de-
duces that all engineers need a course
in manners. Such is nothing less than
a simple case of hasty generalization,
and it looks as if Mr. A needs a ,urse
in elementary argumentation before
continuing to use his "legal mind."
Put first let us see if the cases were
typical. He takes the case of two fel-
lows in the movie theater who made
insulting remarks in the hearing of
his mature lady friend and himself.
We do not doubt that those freshmen
should have noticed their more learned
upperclassman and should have acted
accordingly in his presence, but the
point is, were they the only ones
making such noise or did he simply
choose them as an example? If other
students also made similar remarks
in the theater, then his point is worth-
less. But we know that students of
all departments make various pointed
remarks in our theaters which seems
to be a sort of college tradition, not
only here, but in all college towns and
a senior law should have learned by
this time that even if all the engineers
do know of his presence and keep still,
more especially when he happens to
have a lady friend with him, then there
will be noise if the occasion arises.
Mr. A contradicts his own statement
when he says "This is not an indict-
ment of any one department-" then
says the "engineers" need a course in
common, everyday manners. What is
his conclusion then, if he doesn't try
to indict a certain department?
In closing, let me say that any man
.vho speaks so "rudely" and openly
says that any one department is: "Fit
for the mountains and barbarous
caves, where manners ne'er were'
preached," should never criticize
others without thinking of the words
of "Bobby" Burns:
"O wad some power the giftie gie us
To see oursel's as ithers see us."
X Y Z, '20E.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Almost with the first thunder storm
)f the season comes Mr. A's thunder
about bad-mannered boilermakers.
Mr. A Is a lawyer and speaks, there-,
fore, with judgment and decision, yet
the possibility arises that Mr. A is no
more an example of the average law
student than the naughty engineers,
mentioned by him, are examples of
the average engineering student.
It has never been the writer's ex-
perience to attend a theater in any
town or city, anywhere, where more
or less unnecessary comment was not
made on the play. Following in Mr.
A's train of thought this would tend
to show that thexunpolished engineers
are everywhere in abundance.
Perhaps friend A has a bad case of
grouch. If so he ought to quote more
pleasant poetry than he did, and by
so doing he might discover something
even better than the communication
Idea. Take for example Wilbur D.
Nesbit's formula
"The thing that goes the farthest,
Toward making life worth while;
That costs the least and does the most,
Is just a pleasant smile."
H. PAUL HARSHA. '18E.
