BRING ON THE MILK BOTTLES
The State expends time and money
upon educating men at its institu-
tions. Later it spends more time and
more money in the maintenance of
some. of these men as professors 'and
masters of research. The increased
knowledge that these men bring to the
world is the compensation that the
Fourteen members of the University
faculty, having tired of the adminis-
tration's apparent spinelessness, have
sought to strengthen the Allies in
their part in the Great War. These
men have been trained to study prob-
lems from all angles before reaching
their decisions. They are used to
weighing carefully all the evidence.
Several of them, by reason of their
peculiar training, are eminently fit-
ted to judge and lead public opinion
in regard to the right and wrong of
this great struggle. These men have
been trained by the State for that pur-
pose. And yet when they seek to ex-
press these well considered opinions
they are promptly muzzled by an ul-
tra-conservative press and threatened
with a "scolding" by the university
To quote from the Washington
Times: "Perhaps neutrality can rea-
sonably be carried that far. Perhaps
because a man is a professor he
should be barred from expressing
opinions; though there has been lit-
tle objection to the intellectual ac-
tivities of scholars who have ranged
themselves on the other side. But
as a whole it seems that the men best
qualified to pass deliberate, informed,
understanding opinions on such sub-
jects ought to be encouraged to for-
mulate and to express views."
Those who object to this frank
stand on the part of the faculty mem-
bers contend that they signed in their
official and not their individual ca-
pacities. _If. this -were "true ,the con-
troversy would assume a different
complexion. But these men signed
first their names, then their addresses
and lastly, down in one corner, their
occupations. The effect and signi-
ficance of signatures of this kind have
often been passed upon by the courts,
yet if these courts were called upon
to say that the signatures as they ap-
peared on the petition would have
bound the university and not the in-
dividuals had the instrument been a
note, we can imagine what their an-
swer would have been.
Many students who joined the Na-
tional Security league have received
requests from headquarters to wire
or write their approval of section 56
of the Chamberlain bill which pro-
vides for a citizen soldiery trained to
arms and under absolute and direct
federal control Those who take to
heart the political lesso which our
country has been fortunate enough to
receive as the result of the Great War
will readily sympathize with such a
proposal. We have seen, on the one
hand, that the American people as a
whole have been but dimly conscious
of what are historic American ideals,
and on the other hand, there can be no
question of the growing strength of a
national movement. Three or four
years ago a program of preparedness
would have met little public approval,
both because of the feeling that mili-
tary service meant merely a waste of
time, and that no national duty toward
defense of his country was incumbent
upon the citizen of the United States.
Europeans might be burdened with
military service .but Americans were
free! The--scorn in which this view
is now held reveals the tremendous
change which has come about. H..G
Wells says the United States has lived
more politically in the last two years
than it had previously for a hundred
It is the task of contemporary states4
men to give efficient direction to this
growing spirit, and the provision
above, for its kind, is suitable. Mil-
tary service should be made volun-
tary, but it should also be made popu-
lar by providing the best facilities
and officers obtainable.-E. R. S.

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The freshman class is supposed to
be green, but nevertheless it seems
as though it ought to know the pur-
pose and character of Good *Friday.
The committee in charge of the "Frosh
Frolic" have displayed great ignor-
ance by setting April 21 as the date
for the affair. If it be truly ignorance,

I am not a minister's son, nor do
I ever intend to be a minister of the
Gospel. If this were so I would have
found out six months ago that I was
at the wrong institution. No, far be
it from such, but I do believe in show-
ing that much respect toward the ob-
servance of the day. Would it listen
well to the public if the biggest social
event of the freshmen at the Univer-
sity of Michigan were held on Good
Friday.? Surely no harm would be
done to the reputation of the univer-
sity and the freshmen if the date were
changed. As "Doc" May would say,
"Think it over."
Nevertheless, wishing the freshman
class entire success in this and all
other events, I am,
Motor Cop Enforces Speed Ordinance
Since the arrival of the new motor-
bike for Motor Officer E. J. Sodt, of
the local police force, the speeding or-
dinance in regard to automobiles has
been rigidly enforced. During the
past two weeks, nearly 20 cases have
been brought before local justices and
the campaign of extermination against
speed demands is certain to continue.
