THE IURI'J'Y PROBLEM.
Any issue is bound to get confused
in the mind of the public, when it hap-
pens to be a bit complicated. This
would seem to be true with the so-
called purity cainpaign, instituted by
a number ofVarsity athletes. It came
so easy, for those ironically inclined,
to make light of the move, and to quote
the agitators as in favor of almost
everything, that the campus began to
believe that the leaders of the propos-
ed reform were really trying to wipe
out even the vices which are generally
considered rather pardonable.
The communication published in
these columns yesterday, signed by the
man who is said to have started the
movement, clears up a lot of misun-
derstanding. It appears that the men
behind the campaign are not unalter-
ably opposed to the cigarette, and that
they do not lay especial stress upon
profanity, although undoubtedly they
would be far from desiring to advocate
even the minor questionable habits.
It is clear that no effort is being made
to pin white-ribbons broadcast, and,
no matter how. commendable such a
practice might be, its absence in the
present agitation will elicit support in
some quarters where indifference
might otherwise be predominant.

The note board for the use of uni-
versity women, which 'was suggested
the beginning of the year, by Alice Ev-
ans, director of Barbour gymnasium,
is now being constructed, under her
supervision, and will be placed in the
women's league room in University
hall. It is designed to take the place
of a university post office, through
which university women may commun-
icate with one another, and through
which official notices may be sent to
committees by their chairmen. The
system has been found to save time
and energy at other colleges, where
it has been in use.

Lena Mott, '15, has been appointed
general chairman of the committee in
charge of the annual Michigan Wom-

There will be no meeting of the

tee is making a list of ,Michigan alum-
nae who are prominent in the voca-

act as vocational councillors to wom-
en who may register as being interest-
ed in the fields of the conference. An
alumnae correspondent has been ap-
pointed in Detroit and in Washington,
D. C., to facilitate the work.
The Junior %irls' luncheon will be
conducted by a committee of collegiate
alumnae, at 12:15 o'clock this after-
noon, in Barbour gym. The remaining
lunheons will be held at the same
time ad place throughout the year.
CABINET CLUB TO GIVE DANCE
FOR ALUMNI IN CAPITOL CITY
Under the direction of the Cabinet
club, a dance will be given for the
alumni of the University of Michigan,
at the Hotel Raleigh, in Washington,
D. C., December 28. It is planned to
give this dance for the benefit of the
alumni, and invitations are being sent
to all those who might attend. During
the intermission, moving pictures will
be shown of the spring contest, and
other events of interest which have
happened about the campus.
The committee is also planning to
have a lecture given at each of the
five high schools in Washington, and,
in connection with each talk, there will
be shown moving pictures and lantern
slides of the campus and its points of
interest. These lectures are given in
accordance with the 'cub's policy of
promoting interest in the University,
