Night Editor........L. S. Thompson
The first woman to be made the
editor of any college daily newspaper
is Miss Zetha Hammer. editor-in-chief
of the Daily Kansan, publication of
the University of Kansas.
This is not necessarily an insidious
suffrage victory. Perhaps it is really
less a triumph for the girls of the
university than it is for the men.
In savage communities, woman is a
slave to man. She progresses to free-
dom and a fair share of the privileges
of man in proportion to the civiliza-
tion of the males of her community.
That any student body should per-
mit a woman to usurp that much cov-
eted position of editor of the college
paper speaks mighty well for the en-
lightenment of Kanas boys.

The general consensus of opinion
concedes that the J-Hop just passed
was one of the most successful and
fficiently managed social affairs which
have taken their place in Michigan's
history. It was more of a university
function and less of a fraternity af-
fair. Its patronage was not so limited
to the members of the male sex as
has been the case in Hops of the past.
And this brings us to the pointwe
wish to make.
One of the objections to the old Hop
was that it was a direct insult to the
women of the university. This state
of affairs gave rise to the old, old
joke concerning the barrenness of
sorority houses on the week-end of
the big party. And so on ad infini-
tum. If these things are true or half
true we think the fault lies with the
women rather than the men.
At the J-Hop all Michigan students
are hosts, not the men alone, but the
women as well. The men invite out-
of-town girls and local girls as their
guests. Yet they have been accused
of discriminating against the women
enrolled in the university. To our way
of thinking it does not seem at all out
of the way to suggest that the women
mnake this affair their own as much
as the men do. They could have their
own house-parties and do their own
entertaining. The idea is not revo-
lutionary since the thing is done now
at the big women's colleges in the
3ast. A Hop given under such condi-
ions as these would be a truly Michi-

SOLICITS STUDENTS" AID
MRS. L. P. HALL ASKS MICIIGAN
TO MAKE CONTRIBUTIONS FOR
WAR DEVASTATED COUNTRIES.
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
After eighteen months of fighting,
the misery and suffering in Europe
today is so terrible and so overwhelm-
ing that we, far away in peaceful and
prosperous America, can but faintly
A recent appeal from one of the de-
vastated districts says: "Whole com-
munities are without money and with-
out clothes, except the horrible rags
in which they stand, and without hope
of survival except through the prompt
aid of America. Three million old
men and women and mothers of chil-
dren are turning their faces in anguish
Mr. Willard who went to Europe to
make personal investigations for a
New York Relief Committee writes
back: "The distress and lack at the
front as I now learn it daily, is be-
yond words! Many emergency and
field hospitals are without the barest
necessities for caring for wounded
men. Orders for hospital supplies
are so gigantic that the factories can-
not fill them-you should have seen
the beds 1 saw Friday, sacks of straw
on bits of board and one blanket as
the whole covering. Mrs. X told
me of a hospital without sheets but
under the dying they put newspapers
as a luxury when they can get them."
Our committee on relief work was
organized November 15, 1915, and has
been working steadily ever since. We
have received such generous and cor-
dial support from the people of Ann
Arbor that we have been able to send
much warm clothing, material to be
made up in the refugee work shops
in Europe and a large quantity of
surgical dressings of various kinds.
Besides continuing this work, we are
now very anxious to send in addi-
tion supplies df bed linen, blankets.
towels, night shirts, etc., to some of
the hospitals most needing help such
as are described above. To do this
we must have money, won't you help
While we have been trying especial-
ly to help the destitute women and
children in the various devastated dis-
tricts, we are interested in all kinds
of war relief work and will be glad to
receive and use to the best of our
ability contributions for any of the
countries at war. Where the pur-
pose or destination of a contribution
is indicated, the wishes of the giver
will be scrupulously respected.
In view of this unimaginable and
wide-sprea suffering, we feel no hesi-
tation in asking your co-operation, for
we are sure that the students of the
University of Michigan will wish to
havee some part in this great humani-
tarian work which America must do
today. Do not hesitate to give because
you can, only give a little. "A little

Club Play Scores Another
Comupally Goes to Saginaw
One of 'the greatest successes ever
scored by the Comedy club was that
of last Saturday afternoon when the
club presented "The Professor's Love
Story" at the Whitney theater for the
benefit of the J-Hop guests. The
house was practically sold out and
everyone present expressed the opin-
ion that this performance showed
even more refinement than that given
earlier in the year.
On Friday morning the club will
leave for Saginaw where they will
give a performance that evening at
the Academy theater. Those who will
imake the trip will include besides the
cast, J. E. Sanders, E. A. Sachs, J. S.
Sachs, J. S. Switzer, and W. Peddi-
cord. Professor and Mrs. L. A.
Strauss will chaperone the trip. C. E.
Quinn, who has charge of the ticket
sale at Saginaw reports a large ad-
vance sale and everything points to
another big success for the club on
