Rackets Restrung in Three Days
two Americans have died when they
sacrificed too 'much for Arabia. The
other side will bring up that the
amount which is asked for Busrah. is
less than is asked for almost any other
campus project; that as a university
we are fulfilling some of the ideals
which we get at Michigan, and are
letting no other university surpass us
in the way of sending American prog-
ress to a people who most need it;
and finally that we keep Michigan
fromn being provincial, and by a little
self-sacrifice accomplish an immeas-
urably larger good as a result.
An observer in many of our class
rooms would probably feel that the
students have come to believe too lit-
erally that "Silence is Golden." We
are not here to impugn that ancient
wisdom. But silence that might speak
if it would is different from silence
which cannot speak because it has
nothing to say.
Our sympathy goes out to the in-
structor who must daily face a large
class of intellectual inertia which
seldom responds and still less sel-
dom creates. In some classes the
sentiment has gone so far that he
who volunteers an idea is looked upon
as revolutionary and a traitor to the
established sacred and venerable or-
der of silence.
This attitude is difficult to explain.
Wherever the student plans to spend
his life, whether it be in business, in
teaching or in a profession, it will
never profit him to hide his candle
heneath a bushel. Indeed, we are
told in play and story that "It pays to
advertise." If the university is to be
a real training for life and not a mere
pleasurable vacation, why should we
not now learn to present our ideas to
the world, so that both the world and
we may profit by their value. Silence
may be golden; but too much silence

sons just below the junction of the
Tigris and Euphrates rivers, and near
the head of the Persian gulf. It has

There is no sewerage system in Bus-
rah, and the blindness caused by the
climate and the Arabian sand is only
one of the features in the appalling
number of cases needing medical
treatment. Several Michigan doctors
and a i\'ichigan nurse have gone to
improve conditions, through a Christ-
ian medical mission, at Busrah. The
University Y. M. C. A. conducts a
campus-wide canvass every spring in
order to secure funds to keep the
project afloat. Other American uni-
versities are doing similar work
throughout the Orient.
There are always two sides brought
up when' the student canvasser dis-

contributor may state that the money
should be used in some local project,
that he is not deeply .interested, and
perhaps he may bring up that one or

Complaints have come from those
in charge of women's athletics to the
effect that the tennis courts on Palmer
Field and at Newberry Residence are
being used while still wet, with the
result that they have become deeply
rutted and marked. Girls are urged
to restrain their tennis enthusiasm
sufficiently to wait until the ground is
perfectly dry. Those enthusiasts also
who play during the early morning
hours on the Newberry courts, are
asked to keep their game as quiet as
possible. These courts must not be
used before 6:00 o'clock in the morn-
ing, although the courts on Palmer
Feld may be used as early as desired.
The nets for the Newberry courts
will be found on the north porch of
