ner's lecture of March 15, on "Safety
First-Is America Prepared Against
War?" will be put on sale today at
Wahr's, the Union and the Whitney
theater for 35 cents for any seat. Be-
cause of the interesting nature of the
subject, indications are that every one
of the 1,500 seats at the Witney will
be taken.
Mr. J. F. J. Archibald; in his lec-
ture in Hill auditorium last evening,
referred to the inadequate army and
navy of the nation, and said that citi-
zens of Ann Arbor would have an op-
portunity to hear the subject ably dis-
cussed by one of the leading advocates
of national preparedness, when Mr.
Gardner lectures here next Monday.
"The psychology of the presence of
a military caste will always be a men-
ace to peace," said Prof. David Friday,
of the economics department, when
interviewed yesterday on the subject
of militarism. "The rea ons for the
European war seem quite trifling;
they are almost entirely attributed to
the presence of this military caste.
The presence of military uniforms will
serve to keep the people aroused and
prepared for war." Professor Friday
said that he was opposed to compul-
sory military training in universities,
"as something apart from university
That we must not neglect our mili-
tary and naval resources, as long as
the rest of the nationsare engaged in
a steady building up process of their
armies and fleets, was the keynote of
a warning sounded by Prof. C. H. Van
Tyne, of the history department yes-
terday. "Personally," he said, . I
would welcome a complete disarma-
ment of all the nations, but until that
is done, we must make adequate pre-
parations for war. We must prepare
to repel any possible attack that our
insular position makes possible. In
.other words, we must prepare to guard
our country against an invasion of
perhaps 300,000 or 400,000 men."
"Armaments in Europe caused war,
why then should the United States be
required to go on a war footing ?" said
Fred B. Foulk, '13-'16L, yesterday,
when interviewed. "Defense and pre-
paredness is the cry, but every army
that has existed has been for defense.
The militarists are playing with fire.
To bring our military equipment up
to efficiency means that we are enter-
ing on the road to war. A cannon is
not made to keep peace; it is made to
kill men. This foolishness of militar-
ism should stop, and international re-
lations should be based upon mutual
understanding and mutual respect and
not upon fear and aggression. Mili-
tary training for college students will
keep alive the militaristic feeling, and
for the above reasons, I am opposed toI
"The Poet,-A type of Religious Ex-
perience" will be the subject of a lec-
ture to be delivered at 7:30 o'clock to-;
night by the Rev. William O. Ray-
mond, of the English department, in
St. Andrew's church. This talk will;
be the fourth in a series of Lenten ad-
dresses being given by Mr. Raymond
on the general subject of "Types of
Religious Experience." There will be
three more lectures in the series.
Tomorrow afternoon Prof. A. H.
Lloyd, of the philosophy department,

will speak on the subject, "A.Modern
Superstition" in St. Andrew's"church
at 4:30 o'clock. This will be the first
of a series of three talks by Professor
Lloyd, and the student body, together
with the general public are invited to
hear the addresses in their entirety.
Stage Bridge Finals on Friday Night
Finals in the Union Bridge tourna-

at the Union, where the ninth round
is to be played off. At the end of the
eighth round, which took place last

while second place fell to J. B. Angell,
