THE COLLEGE KIDDER.
The following appeared in "The
Cornell Daily Sun, and 'apparently is
applicable t the stdents of that in-
stituion. We can do no better than'
quote it yerbatipii
"Of the charactristics of the co-
1geinman today, the one whie' i er-
haps the most distinctly marked is
the ability and hait of "kidding," a
practice redeemed t 4gret extent
by thl training which the college
man receive iarning tp give

wvho fins spent four years ii a
American instittin of hiher edu-
cation is usually prepared for prac-
tical jokes of every known species,
and for "kidding," clever, asinine,
subtle or painfully obvious. He is
about as easily ruffled by a jest as
a hippopotamus is put to flight with
"The college Inhn is an 1nellft-ixl
silk-worm. About his real self, by a
process of years, he has woven a
thread of manner, of joke and jest, so
long and deep, that it is seldom that
his real friends penetgte to the man
within. -is heart is anywlere but
on his sleve, And few would have
"But, growing out of such an atti-
tude towards the men with whom he
comes daily in contact, the college
nian has reached an extreme. So
long hate his daily conversation and
chats at the dinner table or in his
study been mere "kidding matches,"
that in many cases he has lost his
power to talk logicaly, consistently,
upon a topic of any nature more seri-
ous than the Chicago game or the
Varsity's chances agginst Penn. And,
if perchnee he has that power, he
is afraid to use it, knowing well that
the opening of any serious topic
means that, is the eciphnt of a
choice and assorted collection of wit.
"Picture a group of men in a fra-
ternity or boardin aoue engagod in
talking over a matter of any import-
ance. The conversation is becoming
interesting and logical. The no ore

a rustling sound is heard. The house
baboon, scenting his opportunity, ut-
ters his racial noise and swings
nimbly into the conversation. mme-
diately seriousness is at an end.
The rest of the group, from force of
habit join in with that species of
comment that cn only be described
as "clever." The subject is forgot-
"Undoubtedly this results from one
or two men, college simians whose
capacity for "cleverness" is greater
than that of the undergraduates with
w'hom they come in contact; and
who cannot allow an opportunity for
the exercise of this faculty to go by
unheeded. They have a melancholy
reward. Ever, their most serious re-
narks are to be taken as a joke, it
is impossible to look upon them seri-
ously. The humor of the old circus
conversation has its touch of pathos.
'Why did Jones become a clown?'
&sks the tatooed man; 'in college he
was always the life of the party,'
answers the bearded woman,
"Such a situation which tends to-
wards the discouragement of any
serious discussion among undergrad-
uates is no small contributor to that
intellectual slovenliness which edu-
cators declare to be perhaps the par-
amount problem in American univer-
sities. The average undergraduate
reads what? His text-book on occa-
sions, the "Saturday Evening Post,"
always, and some of the monthly
That military training has been of
undeniable benefit to the students of
Cornell university and adequately pre-
pares the average young man for
military service is the assertion of
President Jacob Gould Schurman of
Cornell university in his annual re-
port to the board of trustees for 1914-
"No department," declares Prei-
dent Schurman, "Is of more practical
importance to the university, to the
undergraduates themselves, or to the
nation, than the military department.
It is gratifing to report that none is
more effective or enjoys a higher
reputation. In the inspector's report
to the war department he states in
reply to specific questions, tht the
:eneral appearance of the cadets at
inspection was excellent and that the
military instruction is of such an ex-
tent and thoroughness as to qualify
the average student for a commission
as a lieutenant of volunteer"
The reppvt futher shows that the
interest in military training at Cor-
nell continues to increase. Hither-
to the work, while open as an elec-
tive to others, has been required of
freshmen1 and last year 19000 fresh-
men were enrelled in the corps out
of a total of 1,19. This number is
likely te hOdoiutled in another year '
for at the beginning of the year 1916-
1917, sophomores shall be required to
take the same amount of military
training as is now prescribed for

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
It Is with much concern that I read
some of the articles appearing in your
paper on military training. They go
to show how little some members of
this present generation appreciate
their country, the perils, the privations
and battles that have given to us our
peace and security. Now, that condi-
tions have so changed as to cIpruand
military preparation,.s me of the sent-
iments seen, ipatrotic. To compare
military training in the present ex-
igency to college football triing, as
in your rece t article, i absurd. The
one is purely a sport, the other a duty

It is the women who pay the long
prie of war. Military training, to
be efficient nowadays, must be com-
pulsory, so many are indifferent;
wherena a generation ago the Civil
war was fresh in our memories.
Every town had it military company
then, and the competitive drills were
as full of interest as football is now.
I was in Memphis one spring when
their "Chickasaw Guards" cleaned up
everything through the south, and the
interest was intense. Why not revive
our interest in this sort of training
among our colleges, which will be
physical training of the best sort; a
real service to our country as well as
I am convinced our country is in
real danger. Take for example what
may happen when the present war is
over. Many foreign countries have
claims on Mexico and they cannot be
met for a long time, if ever. A German
boy who worked on the farm for me
a year ago last summer had recently
come from Mexico. His father had
been killed and their farm devastated.
He and his mother had managed to
escape, he receiving a bullet in the
shoulder. The mother went back to
Germany to see about indemnity. If
war hadn't broken out in Europe they
would ha;'e m:de trouble long before
