By Robert Marion Riculfi, '15.
There is a law of balance which ap-
plies to benefits received and detri-
ment suffered. If you have received
more benefits from life than you have
suffered detriment, there is cause to
be thankful. Analyze and review your
life, and the lives of those with whom
you are intimately associated. The in-
evitable conclusion derived from your
retlections will be that you and all of,
us have abundant cause for which to
be thankful. In holding the above to
be true, I do not exclude those who
are in any ways, afflicted in body, or
depressed in spirits. To them, I would
say: Rather than be repulsive toward
Him, from whom all blessings flow,
for the ills that have befallen you,
give thanks for your very existence
and for the ills that have not befal-
len you.
There is much for which to be
thankful,-for the beauty of flowers
and the song, of birds; for the joy
of little children, and the loving smil-
es of friends, and loved ones; for the
God-given power to gaze into the eyes
of life, undaunted by any fate that
might possibly threaten us;' for the
strength to draw a veil between our
soul and our eyes, and to keep the
smile of kindness, and goodness up-
on us, when in direct extremity, and
almost unendurable sadness; for our
ever-increasing clear-sighted gaze up-,
on the hurrying stream of life, as we
look deep into the hearts of men, and
see pictured there the generosity, fer-
ocity,. kindliness, want, devotion, the
mockery, and the laughter of debauch-;

ery, the feverish activity, and the stark
despair-all the complex interplay of
human emotions which make life; for
our greater knowledge of man from
birth to death, in his petty episodes
and great moments, in love, work, cre-
ation; for our clearer understanding
of the world of our time-its restless-
ness, its strange new hopes, its shal-
low tumult, its reckless progress; for
strength to confess the presence of
credulity imposed upon, patience in-
flamed, cupidity tempted, 'impulses
misdirected, passions unfettered, and
for faith to approach more closely a
remedy for these conditions; for the
strength of great men to mingle with
and uplift the mass of stupid, loyal
persons, just people, the broken, the
bitter the hard-working, the treach-
erous, the indifferent, the friendly, the
folk who go the pilgrimage with us
through all the days that make the.
years; for our own strength to con-
tend with the young, self-despising
victim of vice; whose very blood has
become impoverished, whose mental
faculties are become weakened, whose
inflamed passions have goaded the
' F ak will on to excesses, which result
in a terrible reaction, demoralization
and degeneration of physical and mor-
al life, which finally paralyze the will
power and leave the victim helpless.
God! Give us men of strength, and
make us thankful for the men who:
all wind their strong arms around
the fallen form of such as these, lift-
ing them up into their world of purity
and self-respect.1

Michigan's cross-country team will
leave this morning for Detroit, where
the university distance runners are
entered in he annual Turkey Day
race of the Detroit Y. M. C. A. Cap-
tain Trelfa, Carroll, Kuivinen, Wal-
ters, Olson, Vedder, Lynch and Fish-
leigh are the men who will represent
the Maize and Blue against the best
"nmarathoners" in the state, and .every
man is confident that the Wolverines.
will be close to the top, when the
score is counted.
This is the first year that a Michi-
gan team has been entered in the De-
troit race, and the men are anxious
to make as good a showing as possi-
bl. It will mark the final appear-
ance of the distance men this fall, and
a victory in today's grind ,will give
Captain. Trelfa and his men a clear
record for the season.
Upon the basis of their showing
against the Detroit "Y" squad, earlier
in the fall,. the Michigan runners,
should be among the first to finish,
and it would not be surprising to see
the Wolverines leading the field at the
finish of today's race.
The team will leave on an early
train this morning over the Michigan
Central. In addition to the men en-
tered, W. B. Palmer, Jr., '15, manager
of the cross-country team, will make
the trip.




Despite a previous report that the
soccer game to be played with the Bat-
tle Creek Normal team this morning
was cancelled, Intramural Director
Rowe announces that the contest will
be staged. The game will be played
on south Ferry field at 10:30 o'clock
this morning.
This will probably be the last home
game of the season, although efforts
are being made to have the team stage
an exhibition contest for the benefit
of the Boys' Conference, Saturday af-
The Battle Creek team comes here
preceded by the reputation of having
oue 'of the best teams in the state.
It -will arrive in the city early this
No charge will be made for the hol-
iday contest, and it is expected that a
large .crowd will be on hand. The
Michigan team will probably line up
as follows: left outside, Romein; left
inside, McCall; center forward, Co-
hen; right inside, Domboraggian;
right outside, Martin; left half, Wal-
ton; center half, Fowler; right half,
Maurier; left forward, Tripolitis;
right forward, Brown; goal, Joseph.
In addition to these men, De Liefde,
Kruger, Rosenthal and Otis will prob-
ably play at least a portion of the
Union.Thanksgiving services will be
held at the Baptist church from 10:00
o'clock to 11:00 o'clock this forenoon.
The Rev. L. A. Barrett, of the Pres-
byterian church, will give the princi-
pal address, but the Rev. A. W. Stalk-
er, of the Methodist church, T. M.
Iden, of the Bible Chair House, and
the Rev. N. C. Fetter, Baptist student
pastor, will also speak. The offering
