ACTIVITY THE WATCHWORD.
WE trust that tht agitation, over
the lack of pfoptr collgt spirit in
athletics in tht University of Michi-
gan, begutn last eveting at tht net-
ing of tht Young Men's Liberal
Guild, will btbilt tht bginning of
a thorough considration and dis-
cussion of thec tatter by all trit
Michigan mns. We beest it is un-

drawback to tbt attaining by Nlich-
igan of her proper place i all
branches of athletics is thc lack of
that general tntlhusiasm and interest
that should prevade the entire stu-
