Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Your exchange editor has of late
published some weird and unwarrant-
ed articles on university statistics.
This morning an item purporting to
come from Ithaca gives the gain dur-
ing the last 10 years in this order:
Pennsylvania, 5,442; Columbia, 3,441;
Cornell, 2,133. Michigan's final count
will be made a month hence, and will
show a gain of about 2,850 in the
Recently an item hailing from Co-
lumbus tabulates the present enroll-
ment of the twelve leading institu-
tions, with Ohio State well toward the
top, and with Columbia under 8,000
and Michigan under 6,000, As a mat-
ter of fact Columbia is well over 10,-

WANTS BANDAT MEETING
SENIOR ENGINEER THINKS IT
WILL HELP INSPIRE PATRIOT-
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
I most heartily agree with Mr. Ken-
neth P. Jones when, in speaking of a
patriotic mass meeting, he says, that
"nothing would be more indicative of
true patriotism than such a meeting."
"True patriotism," as Mr. Jones un-
derstands it, is just then sort of thing
which is best propagated by such
"Give us something serious as well
as patriotic." Yes, just a little some-
thing but in order to avoid danger
be sure to have the band out. If tihere
is any one thing which will smother
the powers of reason "and make the
pulse beat faster" it is'the band!

FRANK C, BOLCH, Prop,
In the language of political econ-
omy, the majority of Michigan stu-
dents are in one division-they are
subjects of capitalistic production, for
somewhere somebody is advancing
capital in order that we may be more
efficient when we at last begin our
usefulness as cogs in the machinery
Under these circumstances, it might
not come amiss if we occasionally
stop and consider just what interest
we are returning on the investment.
There is at least one form which
would be entirely satisfactory to any
capitalist: We can pay it by acquir-
ing the habit of being prompt.
We are told it is "never too late to
mend." In which case, we owe it to
the men who are putting us through
college to begin making payments.
If we cannot free ourselves from the
"late" habit, we can at least see to it
that the underclassmen are prompt,
and thus attain two goals at once:
We are teaching them a valuable pre-
cept, and we are paying off in part
our capitalists in a coin of true value.
A grave crisis still confronts our
country. What is Michigan going to

TONTAGINI WAS GUILTY!
WRITER THINKS OPERA COULD
BE IMPROVED BY LEAVING OUT
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The orchestra may have had some-
thing to do with it, but Tontagini was
guilty. His intrusion left "Fools' Par-
adise" lying flatter, (pardon the ex-
aggeration), flatter than a Gargoyle
joke. It was one plane (and plain)-
expanse of somewhat startling cos-
tumes, rather amusing dancing and
quite pretty music. Even the excellent
acting of Virginia and the "Hello
Girl," as well as that of Tubby, Dick,
and the "Frosh" could not cover the
lack of plot.
I am not blaming the writer of the
book nor the composer of the music.
Poor fellows! They have my sym-
pathy. They were both hampered by
unreasonable cries for reform. No
doubt, the opera should be localized,
but not to the point of being tame.
Perhaps it should emphasize a definite
moraj purpose, but the latter should
be woven in and not tacked on. If
the Michigan Union opera , must be
reformed, we should not forget that it
is still an opera and must have out-
standing characters and a definite
plot. If these cannot be found at
Michigan, let us go elsewhere, rather
than again spoil a perfectly good
opera, by demanding a successfully
concoced mixture of Michigan spirit,
Ann Arbor scenery, and modern mus-
ical comedy. Such a mixture is not1

Paintings by local artists occupy
the most prominent places in the Ann

attracted much attention. Mr. BarnesI
is a master in the use of shadows and
light, and these paintings are repre-
sentative of his work. "Winter Af-
ternoon," by the same artist, has won
several prizes, and has received much
faborable comment throughout the
Mr. Makielski has contributed' a
series af paintings of Notre Dame,
representing different times of day
and season, which have attracted con-
siderable attention. His "October"
represents the new idea in art. This
painting is one of the unique features
of the exhibit.
A large collection of etchings have
been secured for the exhibit, and in-
clude such artists as Rembrant, Zorn,
and Haden. The portrait of himself
by Seymour Haden is a very interest-
ing piece of work. "Worrited," by
Richeton, also proves an interesting
The interiors done by Mrs. Barbour
show great skill in this line of work,
and have been commented on very fa-

Cross has himself made several con-

22.-Encouraging results from the ad-
ministration of common salt as a rem-
edy against excessive perspiration in
the case of marching troops are re-
ported by marine corps officials here.
Sweat contains about six parts of
salt in the thousand. A tropical day's
march results in the exudation of
three to four quarts of perspiration,
with a salt content of 200 to 250
For experimental purposes about
100 marines were given a teaspoonful
of salt (about 75 grains) in the morn-
ing before beginning their day's
march. After a tropical march of
nearly 20 miles the marines thus
dosed exhibited much less fatigue than
their comrades, and their perspira-
tion was. but a fraction of that of the

a considerable quantity of plunder
valued at more than $200 by the own-
ers. One of the men lost a valuable
watch, a suit of clothes, a pair of

use to anyone but the owner. Two
overcoats and two caps are also on
the missing list. The thief left no
