THE UNION'S REPORT.
The financial report of the Michigan
Union, published yesterday in the col-
umns of The Michigan Daily, is as
interesting, as it is conclusive. Iti
comes an unanswerable answer to the
murmurings of sundry cracker-barrel'
critics who "allow" that the Union
exists for the purpose of cornering the
money market and expending the same
in mansard roofs and palm gardens.
Thankful we are that such and simi-
lar rantings have been confined to a
very small minority but the time
has come when even those obnoxious
few should have their noses pinched
and their feet started on a double
quick in the direction of the exits.
The deficit facing the Union from
last year need cause no alarm among
its owners, the past and present stu-
dent bodies. It is to be remembered
that the organization is undergoing a
phenomenal growth and the expenses
must, keep pace in accordance, for a
while at least. The wonder of it all
lies in the great good the Union is ac-
complishing with its limited resourc-
es. Essentially, it is our Union, the
embodiment of our ideals and of the
ideals of generations that have gone
before. And it doesn't take a strong
imagination to bring into mind's eye,
that new club-house, which, day by
day, draws nearer its realization.
