view of "preparedness" such militaryI
training as a source of physical train-
ing is in no sense adequate to prepare
the student to meet the demands
placed upon the modern soldier. The
six months of physical seasoning
which the Canadian volunteer conting-
ents in the present war lve been
compelled to undergo is proof.
We further deny that the proposed
two years of compulsory military
training is of such nature that it will
transform our freshmen and sopho-
mores into embryo "company officers."

We do not deny that voluntary train-
ing has "failed" when tried, if the
number who took the work be con.
sidered the criterion of its success, but
we deny that compulsory training has
been "successful," except in compell-
ing large numbers to do what is futile
and, hence, justifiably unpopular. If,
as seems to be the case with military
training, the success of university
courses were to be judged by the num-

a university course now offered would
have to be made compulsory to justify
its continued existence.

Brings Mrs. Swinbainet Hale
FORMER ACTRESS NOWLECTURER
Mrs. Swinburne HDale better 1nown
as Beatrice Forbes-Robertson Hale,
will lecture on "Woman and Democ-
racy" in the high school auditorium
at 8:00 o'clock Friday evening.
Mrs. Hale is a niece of Sir John-
ston Forbes- Robertson, the famous
Shakespearian actor, a daughter of
Mr. Ian Forbes-Roberson, and grand-
daughter John Forbes-Robertson,
well known as an art critic in Lon-
When but 17 years old, Miss Forbes-
Robertson appeared under Sir Henry
Irving in his revival of "Robespierre."
She has since acted with Sir Charles
Windham, Sir John Hare, and Sir
George Alexander. She has played
Ophelia, Desdemona, and other lead-
ing parts with Sir Johnson Forbes-
Robertson, and Ophelia with Sir Her-
bert Tree. In 1907, Miss Ellen Terry
brought Miss Forbes-Robertson to the
United States, and during the two
following years she appeared under
the direction of Mr Charles Frohman
in "The Mollusc" and "The Morals of
Marcus." She joined the New York
Theatre company in New York for
its first season, at the close of which
she married Mr. Swinburne Hale, a
New York lawyer.
Since 1910, Mrs. Hale has done little
acting, devoting herself to lecturing
on po'etry, the drama, and politics,
especially on feminism and woman
suffrage. In 1914, she published a
book, "What Women Want."
Mrs. Hale is widely known as one
of the best lecturers in America. Her
talks are interspersed with readings
of parts of plays.

Now th most troublesome part of
my task isreached. The question
arises: Even if we should prepare
for defense ought any of the military1
training be done in the university?
This question has been rendered
unexpectedly difficult for me by events
which transpired subsequent to my
consent, at the request of the editor
of The Daily, to sum up the argu-
ments for college training. If I
could have foreseen the unusual diffi-
culty which I would encounter I
should have refused the undertaking,
It is lipossible now to withdraw.
Reasons for MilitarytTraining
The reasons iy the students
shot-d vets for military training are:
The Uniiersity Senate, a body com-
posed of the professors of our insti-
tutio1, rca ci mature wisdom have
by an c:c: wheirming and enthusiastic
majority, vcbed fr the plan.
In those universities where it has
had the suport of the faculty, and
where the students have the right
spirit in regard to it, the system has
been a decided success. Testimonials
from many of the schools which have
adopted the idea are of unqualified
The plan for military training in
the universities originated in Con-
gress and the system is supported
financially by the federal govern-
ment, which also designates army
officers who have been educated at
West Point to supervise the training.
The drills take place three times
each week and this ought to produce
better trained men than are found in
the National Guard organizations,
where there are only weekly drills
without the experienced officers to
Chief Officer Endorses Plan
General Wood, the chief officer of
our army, endorses the idea, in that
it will produce the much needed offi-
cers for a reserve. Of course it is
rot to be supposed that the training
at a university would be equal to that
of such an institution as West Point;
but it will instill the rudiments of
military practice in all the students,
and many of them will. develop into
very capable officers. The opinion
that training for war can just as well
be done by physical education alone,
without the military features, is not
one expressed by army officers, but
by men who do not have experience
in military affairs.
Will three hours each week take
too much time of the student away
from study and other interests? It
is managed very sucessfully by a num-
ber of colleges and universities.
I hope the students will considei
the question of military drill strictly
on its merits when they vote.

Instead of showing us how, when,
and why compulsory military trainingl
has "succeeded" in other schools, thet
proponents of military training havet
used other methods of proof. Theyt
have appealed to the prejudices andl
the fears which the present war has=
brought into being, parading for your;
benefit the bogey of war with Ger-
many. They have resorted to abuse,
and villification of their opponents, as-i
serting that we are "dreamers," "un-
patriotic," "traitors," etc., ad nauseum,j
and it has even been more specifically
insinuated that we are in the pay of
Germany and Austria. We mentionj
this only to observe that when one
party to an argument is compelled to,
resort to such tactics, the only conclu-
sion that can be drawn is that its case
is hopelessly weak.
These, men of Michigan, are the ar-
guments with which the propoents of
military training come before you and
ask you to approve of a radical de-
parture from Michigan's traditional
policy. Do they convince you?
Having shown the complete failure
of its friends to make out a case for
compulsory military training, we
might rest at this point. We deem it
desirable, however, to state the
grounds of our belief that compulsory
military training is wholly undesir-
able at Michigan.
We assert, and our opponents have
not successfully combatted our asser-
(a) That there is danger that mili-
tary training will tend to the devel-
opment of militarist ideals among the
(b) That compulsory military train-
ing will work additional hardships on
the needy and working students, par-
ticularly in that it will decrease, by
from six to eight hours weekly, the
amount of time now available for
profitable employment; and that it will
tend to discourage their attendance;
(c) That the university will lose
the support of many of its friends who
look upon the whole "preparedness"
issue with unfriendly eyes;
(d) That the name of the university
'has been used to aid in the carrying
on of a propaganda, distinctly politi-
cal in character;
(e) That since, if our military train-
ing be not compulsory, the federal
government will not pay our instruct-
ors, and hence the whole scheme
might presumably be defeated by the
regents, therefore we are to have com-
pulsory training at the expense of the
students who do not want it and
would not elect it if it were not com-
Finally, and most important, (f) the
functions of the university and the
military school are wholly dissimilar.
Therefore, any attempt to combine
the two must result disastrously. This
point our opponents have refused to
disculs at all, and this is the point'
upon whichathewhole issue really
"But what of 'preparedness'?"
In strongest terms, we urge upon
you this fact: "Preparedness" and
compulsory military training are NOT
identical. Those who favor the pro-
posed plan, believing that it will pro-
duce "preparedness," have sought so
to identify these two. We quote from
the remarks of Professor Hobbs, "The
principal object of military training
here at the university, would be to
supply company officers." We believe
that we have demonstrated that the
whole question of compulsory training
is primarily one of university policy,
of university ideals, and we protest
that the identification of the two,
"preparedness," and military training
under the proposed plan, only be-
clouds the issue.
If, however, you must express an
opinion on "preparedness,' we urge
you to consider carefully the points
made by Professor Lloyd:
First, "military training is not con-
sistent with the specific purpose of a
university, or with a desirable division
of labor in the making of citizens for
war or peace."
Secondly, and more positively, he
says, "The function of the specific
training of soldiers belongs normally
to the central government. The cen-
tral government, then, should assume
the undertakings in toto, including the
not small item of expense. If the thing
must be done, let it be done right. Im-
pulsive, sporadic effort at a college
here and a university there may still
be commendable, but it is also feeble
and even at times, as one thinks of it,
pathetic. Let the universities, if they
would lead-for once-in something
big, lead by insisting that the central
government do its duty."
The foregoing, men of Michigan, are
the facts. We believe that a decisive
vote on the part of the student body
will have great weight with the board
of regents. We appeal to you to con-
sider carefully before you assist in
committin4 the university to an un-
dertaking which at best is no more
than an inefficient means to a ques-
