ing would be limited to the goose-step
and shooting a rifle. Put this money
wasted in university attempts into
schools especially equipped for mili-
tary training.
There is a growing feeling that dis-
ciplineC would be a good thing for the
average, wayward American youth,
and this argument is not entirely with-
out its merits. But how will you give
any effective discipline to a student,
not a soldier, in three hours a week.
You will find as much in your gym-
nasium classes, with certainly a more
scientific and enjoyable exercise, un-
less discipline is valuable in propor-
tion to its disagreeableness. What will
you do in serious breaches of rules?
Will you put him in solitary confine-
ment on a bread-and-water diet for a
few days, augmented by private reci-
tations administered by some enthu-
siastic militaristic professor? :Remem-
ber, he is supposed to be a student
and not a soldier.
The uniforms are to cost $14.00. Do
we finally want our institutions of
higher education to be open to men
of money only? By an occasional un-
necessary addition of $14.00 to the tui-
tion, with a corresponding rise of other
expenses, we are traveling fast in that
direction. Let us not forget that an
increase of educated men is more to
be desreci in a republic than a few men,
perhaps one per cent, who have been
exposed to military training. The first
business of our universities is to edu-
cate our citizens and to safeguard our
nation's ideals, and everything that
will help to defeat that purpose is 'of
questionable value. One of the quick-
est ways to check the true spirit of
democracy is for the universities to
adopt a spirit of autocracy and class
rule.
Thle adoption of compulsory services
in one of the leading universities of
the country will make a catching head-
line for militarist newspapers and dan-
gerously augment the military wave
that just now is sweeping the country.
It may become an innocent agent in
widening the field of compulsory duty
to our citizenship. Our military
friends may say that's a good thing.
Let me ask them: have we forgotten
that only a few months ago our plat-
form and press emphatically con-
demned the European theory that the
only way to insure peace is to be pre-
pared for war? Are we to become
dupes of the system we have just just-
ly condemned? In this crisis, when
military agitation is sweeping the
country, let Michigan be a cool-headed
mentor; let her attempt to strike a
medium between extreme pacificists
and radical military propagandists,
and in our nation's test render her a
valuable and enduring service.
I favor some preparation for national
defense, but I am opposed to adopting,
in Michigan, which believes in elec-
tives the classroom, in representative
student government, a system that
makes two years of compulsory mili-
tary training service a condition pre-
cedent to an education. Its adoption
would mean a step backward for Mich-
igan.

COMPULSORY MILITARY
TRlI6IS CRITICIZED
l oii't Try to Farce it on tile Whole
Unit, the Plea of George C.
Claassen
Editor The Michigan Daily:
Being a graduate, and therefore ex-
empt from enlistment, I speak without
personal prejudices.
I am not opposed to the military
training scheme if one word is re-
moved, "Compulsory." As Americans,
we believe in abiding by the decisions
of majorities, but we are fundament-
ally opposed to having one class, ac-
cording to it's whim, legislate for an-
other. If the, freshman and sophomore
classes want military training, let the
majorities in those classes decide for
or against it, and then let the minor-
ity abide with it, as we do in all other
institutions of American government.
Or, better still, if it is such a good,
popular thin~,' let those who want it
take it, but don't try to force it on
the whole unit.
Our military friends remind us of
an intolerant religious sect, which, be-
cause they believe a thing, feel it their
solemn duty to shove it down the in-
fidel throats of all others. They would
pile upon others burdens grievous to
be borne, but would themselves not so
much as touch it. They are exempt,.
you know.* For a select few to pass a
law thrusting upon students of demo-
cratic Michigan two years of univer-
sally hated and odious military train-
ing is decidedly un-American, opposed
to fair play,, and a clear violation of
representative government.
Will it train the men? Ask any West
Point rpan that question. Anyone who
is conversant with military training
knows that three hours a week under
our available equipment would be time
wasted. It contains a combination of
two bad qualities, odious compulsion
coupled with nothing accomplished.
We need in our army and navy what
we need in our administration of gov-
ernment, schools, cities and industries
--experts, men who can man ships and
lead armies, neither of which training
could be given here. Where are your
horses, your ships, your airships, your
artillery, your hardships? The train-

Rome, Nov. 13-Information has been

that it was a German, and not an Aus-

Germany has opened hostilities against
Italy without a declaration of war.

You who haven't much to do but
loaf over your coffee, listen to a true
story with moral, attached, and profit
thereby. It was this way: One day
last year, when it was time to map
out a line of courses, a sophomore se-
lected, as a snap, a course in French,
hoping to "pull" a good mark and at
the same time to increase his knowl-
edge of the beautiful and aesthetic lan-
guage.
At the first meeting, of the class the
instructor announced that the text for
the ensuing semester would be "Les
Miserables." Accordingly, our 'sopho-
more hied himself to the nearest book-
store and procured a brand new edi-

gurgled around him, strange little
thrills leaped up his spine and throuzgh
his lower limbs. A specially prepared
sponge; connected with 'a battery, was
used by the attendant to rub down the'
patient, and as this sponge, drippin~g
with the spring water, was passed
over his° back and 'shoulders,- he felt
anew the pleasant thrills-a'nd he got
well. He praised the wonderful wa-
ter which could accomplish miracles,
and sent his friends to try it. Soon
the clientele would have reached such
proportions as to outrival the follow-
ing of Mt. Clemiens, and no one would
have thought of wasting money 'on a
trip to Baden Baden' when something
just as good could be had at home.
