DISAGREES WITH HOBBS
E. 0. SNETHEN SAYS THAT U. S. IS
NOT IN ANY DANGER OF FOR-
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
I would like to make public some of
the questions which arose at the For-
um and the answers to these questions
as I view them.
Professor Hobbs said that upon the
close of the war in Europe, Am rica
was likely to be invaded. He said the
German government had gone s far
as to have planned the best meth'd of
attack. In answer to this I say, there
is no war in sight, far less an invas-
ion into this country by European
forces. The war in Europe tolay is
fast exhausting all the forces of the
belligerent powers, and the end is not
yet. How many years the present war
will continue, no man can say, but it
is not at all probable that it will close
in the near future. After the war
clues cease, the nations will be so ex-
hausted and the fighting men will be
so tired of war, that they will not care
to enter another soon.
Another question that was 1 rought
up was that of patriotism. Pofessor
Hobbs said that he had spent several
y ars in Europe and had compared the
p-atriotism of those countries with that
of America, and that he felt ashamed
of the American spirit. He said that
European students felt the duty
they owed their country and were
anxious to serve her, that the Ameri-
can student should likewise be willing
to sacrifice his life for his state.
In answer to this, I would say that
I believe the war in Europe today is
largely due to this so-called "Patrinoi.
ism." Europe is war mad. If they
had held some of the saner views which
their cousins across the Atlantic had
held in regard to war, there would be
not war in Europe today. I believe in
the right kind of patriotism. I be-
ieve every student does owe something
to his state, but cannot he serve the
state in a far better way by using all
his time while in the University to get
the best possible education and then go
back home to his community and help
lift his neighbors to a higher plane of
Patriotism can best be shown by
making your life work something
which will be useful to mankind, such
as healing the sick, championing the
wrongs of the distressed, relieving the
suffering of the poor and helping
some soul-sick brother to a better life.
I oppose compulsory military train-
ing in the university for another rea-
son. If Michigan would adopt this
plan, it would be setting an example
for other state institutions to do like-
wise. Michigan has so large an influ-
ence that her responsibility in this
matter is very great. If the state in-
stitutions throughout our land should
adopt this plan, we should soon have as
despicable a war regime built up in
this country as Germany has had. This
idea that preparedness for war causes
peace, exploded a few months ago
when military Europe broke out in
war. Germany, the best prepared of
all, was one of the first upon the scene.
David Starr Jordan says, "Prepared-
ness for war causes war. The result
in Europe today was caused by pre-
I would like to close by giving Long-
fellow's idea, also by quoting from the
speech of Lord Roseberry of England
before the University of London on
camps and courts
Given to redeem the human mind from
There were no need of arsenals and
Lord Roseberry of England says, "I
know nothing more disheartening than
the announcement recently made that
the United States-the one great
country left in the world free from the
hideous, bloody, burden of war-is
planning toembark upon the build-
ing of a huge military system. It
means that the burden will continue
upon other nations and be increased
exactly in proportion that it is built
up in the United States. .I confess
that it is a disheartening prospect that
the United States, so remote from the
European conflict, should voluntarily
in these days take up the burden,
which after this war will be found to
have broken, or almost broken, our
After this conflict is over we will
be nearer than ever before the disarm-
ament of the whole world, the ideal
state. Shall the learned regents of
Michigan put one stone in the path of
this great Utopian movement of world-

Deutschtr Verein in that membership

ary department, and that instead of
considering German literature, the

ical, and economic problems of Ger-
many, and to compare German ideals
with American. The club will take
an entirely neutral attitude on the
present European war. Membership
will be limited to 30, and meetings
will be held every other week. The
next meeting will be held at 6:45
o'clock Wednesday evening.

DR. J. A. WESSINGER LECTURES.
BEFORE MICHIGAN DAMES CLUB
Dr. J. A. Wessinger lectured on
"State Health Laws Important to
Housekeepers" before the Michigan
Dames association in Newberry hall
The organization is composed en-
tirely of students' wives and was
founded at Michigan in the spring of
1914, with branches in at least a dozen
other universities and colleges, Ohio
Wesleyan and Chicago university be-
ing notable examples.
The enrollment of the association
now numbers 100 members and meets
bi-monthly in Newberry hall. All stu-
dents' wives in the university are cor-
dially invited to join the club, and can
do so by communicating with Mrs.
Holton Lowe at the Bible Chair House.
STUDENT COUNCIL REFUSES
FRESHMAN "CONFISCATION DAY"
That "Confiscation Day" would not
take place was the decision handed
down by the Student Council in re-
sponse to an appeal from the sopho-
more engineers that a day be set
'aside upon which any freshman wear-
ing other than the prescribed cap or
toque would be liable to lose his head-
"It is the duty of all upperclassmen
to uphold campus traditions," said a
member of the council, "and the big-
gest of these traditions is that a
freshman should wear his cap or
toque. It is our opinion that such a
day would only tend to arouse hos-
tility between the two underclasses,
and that is a thing we wish to avoid."
Union Will Serve Turkey-Day Feast
Members of the Michigan Union who
are planning to eat their Thanksgiv-
ing turkey at the clubhouse this year
will be treated to a sumptuous repast
according to a menu announced by the
steward yesterday. Copies of this menu
will be mailed to the various fraterni-
ties, and house-clubs and to the life
members of the Union. The dinner
will be served from 1:00 to 3:00 o'clock

REIMANN TO ADDRESS BOYS
CONFERENCE AT KALAMAZOO
Lewis C. Reimann, '16, president of
the university Y. M. C. A., will speak
next Saturday evening at the big
meeting of the Thirteenth Annual Old-
er Boys' conference in Kalamazoo.
His topic on this occasion will be
"Character Building in Boys." His
remarks will be based upon his experi-
ence in the Michigan-Harvard foot-
ball game in 1914.
Reimann spoke at the conference
here last fall and during the winter
he appeared in Kalamazoo before a
city boys' meeting. He made such a
favorable impression upon members
of the program committee that he was
obtained as a speaker for one of the
most important meetings of this
.year's three-day conference.
