Another excuse given by these mer
is, that the public demands that a mar
who is to take care of their legal work,
must be of higher caliber than what
he formerly was, and the proposal is
made to insist upon two years of col-
lege work to bring this about.. But
there is g greater and more vital de-
mand made by the public; and it easily
takes precedence to the former. And
that demand is, that no institution nor
even the public have the right to take
away a man's liberty, right of liveli-
hood and choice of life work. Let us
illustrate. There are in the United
States thousands of men who desire
to practice law, that is their chosen
life work. They have the right to fol-
low any work which will give to them
a source of revenue. They are able
to withstand the financial strain of a
three year law course, but are unable

' Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
We are told by the writer in yester-
day's Daily to cease this puerile piffle,
and in the same article, there appears
perhaps the most puerile piffle that the
human mind can conceive. I refer to
the agent selling vacuum cleaners at
the point of a pistol, or a nation sel-
ling its goods by means of arguments
belched forth from the muzzle of a
cannon. If my militarist friend would
but ponder for minute on the basic
principles of economics and industry
he would realize what puerile piffle
such talk really is.
It is to be regretted that the dis-
cussion of military training at Michi-
gan has to be shifted tosuch inter-
national questions as the causes of
war, but it is because we realize that
the only excuse for military training
at this university is that it is but a
small part of the larger movement of
general national preparedness for war
that it has a legitimate place, in this
discussion at all. It is the argument
of those who favor the adoption of
military training.
We are told to -cease talking about
the fashions of infinity, and to live in
the present. During the last century
the nations that have made the great-
est industrial strides are undoubtedly
Germany, England and Japan in the
old world, and the United States,
Canada, Brazil and Argentina in
the new. England, Germany and
Japan have done this despite their
military policy, but at present
they are engaged in demolishing
that civilization and industrial devel-
opement that it has taken them a cen-
tury to build up, whereas this country,
Canada and the great South American
states are still engaged in further
building up their industries. This is
fact, past and present. We have ex-
isted for 100 years without a single
fort along over 3000 miles of border,
and without a warship on the Great
Lakes. It has not been necessary to
use the cannon's arguments for our
trade with Canada. They have been
willing to buy our vacuum cleaners and
we their books without the one being
obligated to point a pistol at the other.
This is not an Utopian dream. Why,
then,, should we become suspicious of
each other and prepare for some dif-
ferences that do not exist, and that
only our arguments will create?
As with individuals, so with nations.
We are not suspicious of anyone who'
goes about unarmed, but let an individ-
ual carry a brace of pistols and we im-
mediately become suspicious, not that'
he wishes to sell us a vacuum cleaner

best the other with armament and
facilities for fighting goes on until it
Teaches the breaking point, and then
there is "trial by battle."
It is for these reasons that I am
anti-militarist; and because military
training at college is but a part of a
greater military movement, that I
am opposed to its introduction at

James B. Craig, Star Wolverine Grid-
iron and Track Man for Three
Years, Leaves Michigan
James B. Craig, '15, for three years
the stellar light on the Michigan foot-
ball team, and member of the track
team for one year, has finished his
active work in the university in which
he gained so much fame on the track
and gridiron.
"Jimmie" first distinguished himself
in his sophomore year, when, in the
last few minutes of play, he saved a
victory for Michigan from what seemed
almost certain defeat at the hands of
Pennsylvania. From that time on,
he was recognized as the star of the
Maize and Blue football team.
In his senior year, he abandoned the
gridiron, in the hope that he might
graduate with the-class with which he
had entered the university. His loss
to the team was a keen one and
brought out most distastefully in the
M. A. C. defeat of that year. In spite
of the danger to his scholastic work,
he rejoined the squad under Coach
Yost, and from that time on, the team
was imbued with a new fighting spirit
which won it victories over every one
of its strongest opponents.
His promising track career was
brought to a close after one year of
competition,'injuries contracted on the
gridiron being responsible for his loss
to Coach Farrell's squad.
Craig left last week for the west,
where he will join his family for a
short visit before entering business.

My answer is then, make it four, five,

the public who are -vitally interested.
Two years of college is not two years'
of law and such an argument would
be totally insignificant.
I realize that to criticize is but ele-
mentary and the real task is to sug-
gest a remedy. If these men are
