THE WOODEN HORSE AGAIN
Deluded by a clever bit of legerde-
ain, an ancient people once threw
aside the implements of warfare and
nastiuted a bacchanalian orgy cele-
brating what they thought to be the
leparture of the enemy from their
shores. Their rejoicing centered about
great wooden horse, supposedly be-
Atowed upon them by the gods. But
fhen the carousers were senseless as
he result of their revelery, out oi
he interior of the horse came the
Ireeks to destroy the city in its dis-
Ipation. It is the old tale of the
vooden horse of Troy.
Unfortunatel, this monuemntal
>lunder of antiquity is finding its par-
0Llel today in Ann Arbor, where cit-
zens, students, and soldiers, relieved
hat the crest of the influenza epidem-
c has been passed, are becoming ob-
ivious to the dangers still lurking
t hand. They, like the Trojans, think
f the former horror only in the light
hat*it cannot exist again. Caution is
Ieasing to be, and the modern Trojans
re disregarding the possible results
f their premature recklessness.
Unless the present attitude is alt-
red and precautionary measures
gain become more general, there may
nsue a second war by the folly of a
ingle night-a folly which spelled de-
truction; the Trojans of today, too,
ourt suffering and death in maintain-
ng their carefree air. The Greeks re-
urned through the medium of a wood-
in horse; and the influenza finds easy
.ccess through the avenue of over-
onfidence.
THAT LETTER HOME
At military headquarters letters are
toming In every day from worried
nothers who request the busy officers
o pause in their work and write them
tating whether Tom, Dick, or Harry
:as the influenza. There is, of course,
, humorous element as well as con-
Iderable annoyance in this situation,
ut the more serious fact is revealed
hat many of the men in the S. A. T.
, are neglecting their families at a
line when this kind of carelessness is
articularly inexcusable. There is
eally nothing funny in the anxiety of
hiese women whose boys are away
rom home perhaps for the first time,
nd who hear new rumors every day
f the ravages of disease in this and
ther camps.
Now, if ever, a man should be espec-
ally punctilious about that letter
ome. A letter takes really very lit-

to time after all; it's the making up
f one's mind to attend to it regular-
r which is hard for most people. And
few lines on a postcard will tell.
he home folks that all's well and will
ave manifiold moments of worry and
ispense. Soon enough the soldiers
;ationed here at the University will
o where an interchange of letters is
matter not of hours but of weeks,
ad parental anxiety will be unavoid-
ble. If the men will bear this fact
z mind, considering all the possibii-
les which war brings, and the vast
ebt which they owe to those good peo-
le back home, there will be fewer
ccited inquiries coming into regi-
ental headquarters.
HERE AND THERE

learn that Nice is not on the Atlantic
coast, or that Lyon is not one of the
base ports, the names of which we
can't use in our letters. And it is little
short of shattering when the truth
finally comes home to us that the pro-
vince of Maine, France, is as inland as
I6wa.
Something tells us that, as a result
of our sojourn here, the little Willies
of the future will pay even more atten-
tion to the contents of their jogerfries
than the little Willies of the past paid
to the copies of Diamond Dick and
Frank Merriwell that they used- to
smuggle behind those bulkly books.
Something tells us, too, that the little
Pierres of the future will be able to
bound Oklahoma and define Kansas
with the best of us.-Stars and Stripes

Prince Maximilian, the German
chancellor, is reported to be ill with
the flu. At last, like mother's shingle,
it is being applied where it will do the
most good.

NEARLY 100 WOMEN
STUDEN FS WORKING
One hundred University women are
employed in positions formerly o
cupied by those who are now mem-
bers of the S. A. T. C. This oppor-
tunity has been realized and the wo-
men are accepting employment in
large numbers. They are paying a
part of their expenses in this way and
at the same time are aiding those who
depend upon student help.
There are 24 women who are work-
ing for their board and room. The
schedule is standardized so that only
four hours work are required daily.
Forty-seven women are helping to pay
their expenses as waitresses, cashiers,
stenographers, and some are caring
for children. Two women are tutor-
ing, and large numbers are assist-
ants in the laboratories and in the
Library.
Three of the women who were work-
in their way last year for board and
room made Phi Beta Kappa, and the
experiment has shown that lower
grades do not result. The work they
have done has proved satisfactory,
and inquiries are forthcoming for
more who are willing to work. Those
desiring information should apply to
Myra B. Jordan, dean of women.

mittee on women's war work, asking

University of Michigan, who have
