That domination of the - world is
destined to the country controlling the
farming territory, and that the Unit-
ed States is that country, was the dec-
laration of Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis,
who spoke in University Hall under
the auspices of the Oratorical associ-
ation, last night.
"North and South America are the
only continents fitted by nature for
farming," said Dr. Hillis. "A large
share of these continents already be-
long to the United States. Not only
do we own our own country and Alas-
ka. but we have bought vast tracts in

cs. Canada, Mexico, Central and South
thor of America, and we are adding to them

ASKS THAT MATTER BE TAKEN
UP BEFORE CHOICE IS MADE
Question Will Be Taken Up by Board1
In Control for FinalE
Answer.*
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
. A Vigilance Committee is no pana-
cea, but it is corrective. We propose,1
in accordance with your editorial sug-
gestion, to start work at once. First
and last, we stand for student gov-
ernment, direct student representation
and student self government.
Mr. Editor, how direct would be the
influence of public opinion of the state
of Michigan on the state legislature-
the legislative body-if the state audi-
tor, an administrative head, named
the members of the state legislatutre?
The legislature certainly could not be
said to be the voters' representatives,
or to represent the opinions of the
voters.
Yet the university has just such a
system as this, in its election of the
three student members of the board in
control of athletics. The students
elect a football manager, a baseball
manager or an interscholastic mana-
ger to the board of directors,-the
students elect managerial heads. Then
some morning they read, with sur-
prise, in The Daily that these mana-
gers have elected themselves to the
board in control of athletics, a legis-
lative body, a body that is entirely
separated In every way, manner and
form from the board of directors.'
There is as much difference between
the functions. of the board of direct-
ors and the board in control as there
is between the functions of state audi-
tor and state legislature.1
If the student members of the board
in control are to represent the stu-
dents,-and this is surely the inten-
tion,-they should be directly elected
by student opinion and directly respon-
sible to student opinion. This they are
not, under the present indirect sys-
tem of election. At best they repre-
sent the opinion of the board of di-
rectors, which is 'a body elected to
managerial power only.
We ask you to take this matter up.
fake it an issue in the coming election.
Interview the candidates. Pledge
them to vote favorably or unfavorably
in the board of.' directors. Have the
matter voted on in the general meet-
ing of the athletic association. Have
the matter brought before the board
in control as the body that will finally
pass on it.

The constitutiton and plans for the'
new Women's Dramatic association
were outlined by Mary Palmer, presi-
dent, and Louise Robson, secretary,
at the first meeting of the organiza-
tion, yesterday afternoon. Taking for
its model similar associations in east-
ern colleges, the Women's Dramatic
club aims to promote system and spirit
among the university women inter-
ested in dramatics in any form and
merribership to the organization is
open to all who are enrolled in the
women's league, and who are willing
to read and sign the constitution.
An honorary executive body, called
"The Masques," will have full govern-
ing power over this dramatic associa-?
tion. Membership to this inner circle
will be limited to 25, and prominence
in campus dramatics will determine
election to "The Masques." Closed
meetings of this governing body will
be held once a month, alternating
with those of the association proper.
Approximately 40 women tried out
for parts in the three skits proposed
for presentation in the near future.
These playletes are, "Ici on parle
Francais," "The Kleptomaniac," and
"The Gentle Jury." The first named
skit will be offered at the next meet-
ing of the club, and the entire cast
Jias been chosen. This skit will be
enacted on the evening of the first
Thursday in the new semester, and the
admission charged will go toward fin-
ancing the staging of a play early in
April.
Additional tryouts will be held in
Barbour gym, next Monday, at 4:00
o'clock:

A "pep" meeting for the 1914 Var-
sity football candidates, good, bad, or
indifferent, is called for, Tuesday ev-
ening, at 7:15 o'clock in the trophy
room of Waterman gymnasium. The
"pep" is to be generated, not for grid-
iron antagonists, but for the opposition
the coming semester examinations is
expected to furnish.
It is expected that Director Bartel-
me, Trainer Farrell, Director Rowe,
ex-Captain Paterson, Captain Rayns-
ford and perhaps other Varsity play-
ers will make short speeches. The
entire emphasis of the meeting will
be laid on the importance of keeping
up scholastic work before thought is
given to participation in next season's
football activities.
Cards notifying the men are being
sent out from the athletic office, and
any man eligible for the Varsity team
next season, whether Varsity squad
player, scrub, freshman, or class ath-
lete will be asked to attend.

has been highly praised by eastern
critics.

"Last year we earned 19 1-2 billions

able to save at least 12 billions or
two-thirds as much as England has
saved it the past 100 years, and this
is being used to buy more land for us.
Because of our great area we are
compelled to increase in population.
In the last 250 years we have multi-
plied 5,000 times.
"We are taking tremendous strides
in industry. The Panama canal will
transfer the English cotton 'mills of
Manchester and Sheffield to the Mis-
sissippi. The coal fields in England
and the United States are nearly ex-
hausted and in the future Alaska and
northern Canada will furnish our fuel.
'Thomas A. Edison believes it will be
possible to convert coal into elec-
tricity without removing it from the
mine.'
"Much depends upon ,the health of
the nation.. The standard in height in
the English army has 'decreased from
S to 5 feet, 12 inches in the last 101
years, owing to poor conditions of fac-
tory laborers. Because of the supe-
riori-ty of the German over the French
woman, Germany will some day own
France. Legislation must be enacted
to prevent criminals and feeble-mind-
ed people from producing their kind.
The lunatic asylum has become the
typical building of the United States.
"I am more afraid of the degenerate
descendants of noble American ances-
tors than of the flow of 'immigrant
mud' into our country. We need 10
million immigrants to develop the
