"Tho Mtchignn Agricultural College HE-UNION OF FORMER SINGLE DOZEN CLUB A number of years ago, we Won't say how many, because the ladles wouldn't be pleased, a doz en of Yale's bright and popular young ladies organized a social club, calling it the Single Dozen. Such good times as were had at the regular gatherings, not one wanting to miss a single meeting of the Single Dozen Club. But as time went on one took unto her self a life-partner and thereafter could not really be called single, and then another dropped out, so occasionally new members were taken In until the marriage vows disrupted the whole club and for as many as fifteen years no gath ering has been held. The idea of a re-union was con ceived in the minds of Mrs. Dolph Andreac and Mrs. Clyde Adams and the invitations to t.ne former members received instant and al most unanimous approval and con sent. The place was set for the summer home of Mrs. Andreao at Cedarwood and the time from Friday, July 2Sth to Sundav. The husbands were also invit ed and were there to a man, en joying the outing and old-time as sociations as greatly as their wives. A wonderfully appetizing chick en dinner on Friday night started the ball rolling, and from then on something was doing the whole time. Beach parties, .weenie roasts, bon fires, boating, fishing and bathing, to say nothing of the grand talks of girlhood days and Single Dozen pranks and par ties. It was too short a time to crowd in all one wanted to say, to hear and to do, but parting time came at the end of ideal weather and perfect associations. Out of the original twelve, eight were present on the memor able occasion, three were una"ble to come, and one has passed to another world. Those who attended the week end house party re-union were Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Langworthy, Ann Arbor; Hattie Karn, Fort Wayne, Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kuhn, Detroit; Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Ad ams, Capac; Mr. and Mrs. Fred Locke, Mr. and Mrs. Ira Bricker, Mr. and Mrs. Jule Hennessy, Ma belle Herbert, Port Huron; Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Richards, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Beard, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mathews and Mr. and Mrs. R.

Put the whole mind and heart in it. Know nothing else. Do everything the very best. Distance everybody about you. This will not be hard for the other fellows are not try ing much. Master details and dif ficulties. Be always ready for the next step tip. If a bookkeeper be an expert. If a machinist, know more than the boss. If an office man surprise the employer by model work. If in school go to the head and stay there. All this is easy when the habit of conquer ing takes possession. Be yourself the leader, not the trailer. Set the standard as conscience dictates. Then you will mould instead of being moulded.

Doelle, state commis sioner of agriculture, speaking before the delegates to the 48th annual meeting of the Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society at Lansing, urged further develop ment, of Michigan's agricultural resources by co-operation. He asked the visitors at the meeting to spread the story of the farming advantages of this state. He also piophesied a turn ing point that will halt the flood of farmers' sons and daughters to the cities and send them, and others with them, back to the soil. "There will be a general going back to the farms of boys and girls who were born in the coun try," he said. "With this move ment there will go ideas that will improve the social and economi cal life in the rural districts. Michigan has many resources, and development of them will make life more worth living.' Commissioner Doelle declared that although Michigan i3 only a partially develoned state, agricul turally, it stands well up as a fruit, poultry and dairy state. He briefly sketched the history of agricultural development in Mich igan and raced the shifts in the balance of population that make him believe the time is coming when more than 50 per cent of the state's population will live on farms.

DAUGHERTY INJURED Caro The first annual Tuscalc County Masonic picnic Tuesday was marred by the possibly fatal accident of John Daugherty of the Michigan farm colony at Wahja mcga. Daugherty was injured while he was blindfolded in the wheel bar row race, when the handle of a barrow penetrated his abdomen. The wheel of the barrow ran into an obstacle while Daugherty was pushing it at a high rate of speed and he ran onto the handle. His condition is critical. Pocketbook and Humanity Pock:tbock is in the saddle with humanity trudging alo::g behind. This is especially true with re gard to the :trife between labor and capital. The mfn in rnntrnl nf mr rrVit ; i. ..a i i f inuusiriai anu commercial enter prise? are fattening at the ex pense of the stockholders who h:vc invested their weilth. They draw big salaries and pull out fat fees while the stockholders have to be content with modest divi dends. The same is true in tho ranks of labor. The her.d men are rolling in comfort, draw large salaries, live high and revel in their des potic pover, whilo the rank and file of the unions toil and sweat and cough up or take a forced vacation. The average stockholder in an industrial concern is essentially "honest and does not look for any mere than is fair and just. He is by no means sure of even that much. The laboring man who per forms the actual toil is in the same class. He would be content with a just vago and stc.dy om plcymcat if the czars and agita tors would leave him r.!onc. . But they won't. . There is one great trouble with the leaders on both sides. The grcel cf pocketbook prevails over the cause of humanity. They see nothing except that which is pleasing in their own sight. Hence the breach, and tl e terness, and tho strikes, and stagnation jn business, and idleness, and the privations bit t the and want. Hence tho endless turmoil where peace should reign.

This is slightly above the average for the same months in other years, but is 19 below the number issued in June.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT There is no question seemingly but that the next legislature will es'ablish capital punishment in Michigan in an effort to curtail the henious crimes of the past few years. Governor Grofesbeck U favorable to this legislation under certain conditions and other state leaders arc in favor of such a statute. Thero are far too many murders in this Btate and capital punishment might have a tenden cy to stop such crimes as the mur der of the welfare workers in Jackson last week, or the warden of Marquette prison. It is worth a trial at least, for in reality it is almost impossible to differentiate between capital punishment and a living death of life imprison-1 ment in one of Michigan's penal institutions where the culprit ad mits the crime.
