Night Editor-Herman Lustfield
Wilson. We are beginning to realize
that it is better to have whatever
supply there may be of any essential
commodity within the reach of all,
even though none has all he would like,
than to have high prices stimulate
production, making it possible for the
wealthy to have a plethora of necess-
aries, while the wage-earner finds it
impossible to get any.
We are apt to recall good old Jean
Jacques Rousseau and his dictum that
society exists not for the highest good
of the greatest number,, but for the
greatest good of all. Community ef-
fort is being emphasized, and com-
munity responsibility. Unrestricted ir-
dividualism is being viewed through
the eyes of the less fit por-
tion of the people. We read that
Spanish influenza originates among
the poorly housed and clad denizens
of the river flats, and spreads to the
nabobs on Piety Hill. Piety Hill is be-
ginning to feel, somewhat vaguely as
yet, that if it wants to escape the
epidemic it must see that the river
flats are better protected from ex-
posure. We are answering Cain's
question in the affirmative, and realiz-
ing that in so doing we are blessing
ourselves and saving our country.

THE *WAR VARSITY
Michigan's second war-time foot-
ball team and her coaches are labor-
ing under conditions such as have
never before confronted them. There
is no need of asking support for th'
Varsity for true Michigan men are ai-
ways loyal to their teams. Our op-
p'-nt..nts are trying to develop teams
under ex:.ctly the same conditions and
difficulties. As a consequence visit-
ors to Ferry field this year will not
witness the same perfect machine-like
work, the same quality of individual
playing, and the indications of long
Football men are not being ex-
empted from any of the tasks their
fellow students in the S. A. T. C.
are required to do but are devoting
the hour and a half allotted for pleas-
ure and personaldutiesto producea
team of which their school can be
justly proud. They are unable to do
their best because of time and their
own physical limits, which makes it
impossible for a man to drill several
hours per day and then play top speed
football for the same length of time.
Most of the students will attend
the game because of the personal
.pleasure they secure. They will also
root because of the American inabil-
ity to keep quiet when a good play is
made or clever headwork shown.
What they are apt to do is to be un-
justly harsh in, their criticism of the
players and prone to judge the work
as a whole by the standards of normal
years. Formerly it was justifiable to
complain if the Varsity was not almost
perfect and greatly above average, for
it was within the limits of possibility
to produce such a team and excuses
were not in order. This year we
should have a Varsity equal to that
of our opponents and able to maintain
Michigan's standing in the Conference.
We must not and cannot expect a
team of a 1907 or 1917 type, when
other schools are either refusing to
put a team into the field because of
lack of material or .are frankly admit-
ting that the teams they have are 50
per cent below par. But we can ex-
pect the same Michigan spirit in the
support which this war Varsity will
The war industries board has regu-
lated the price and quality of shoes.
It will regulate the price, quality and
distribution of all wearing apparel,
Chairman Bernard Baruch has stated.
We have sugar cards, and will soon
have underwear cards or their equiv-
alent. As a matter of fact, big city
department stores are already insist-
ing on the personal history of pur-
chasers of those very necessary gar-
ments and will sell only a limited
number to each purchaser.
This is another blow at the law
of supply and demand, and, as such,
will be feared and deplored by many
authoritative economists, who will
show that such action will reduce pro-
duction and that there will be con-
sequent scarcity of wearing apparel.
But much water has passed under
the mill since the United States be-
gan price and distribution regulation
of necessities, beginning with coal
and wheat. We have had opportun-
ity to observe the effect of price reg-
ulation contravening the. natural law
of supply and demand. From our ob-
servations we can begin to form an
idea of the fundamental principles
on which the President Wilson school
of economists are proceeding. "Had
the price of wheat not been regulated,
bread would have been beyond the
reach of the average wage earner," is
the gist of statements by President

CARUSO'S NEW YORK CONCERT
NETS MILLIONS FOR LOAN
Mrs. Enrico Caruso, bride of the
celebrated tenor who sings October
19 in Hill auditorium, has become her
husband's librettist. At a Liberty Loan
rally last Monday in Carnegie hall,
NI. Y., Caruso sang the verses to Um-
berto Giordano's "Canzone Guerresca."
At this concert seats were given gra-
tuitously to subscribers for Liberty
bonds, the highest subscribers receiv-
ing the best seats. Many people sub-
scribed $10,000 and $20,000 for a seat.
The total amount for the house was
$4,300,000. In many ways this was
considered the most remarkable con-
cert ever heard in this country. Be-
side Caruso, Galli-Curci, John McCor-
mick, and Heifetz appeared on the
Training Camps to Have Golf Links
Chicago, Oct. 4. - The United States
commission on army training camps
has decided to provide golf for men
in training for soldiers, and golf as-
sociations have been asked to pro-
vide cibs, balls and caddy bags for
the camp golfers. The government
will provide the linls.

MEDICS ARE PTRIOTS
SENIOR DECLARES WASHINGTON
KNOWS BEST ON DRILL QUES-
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The communication that was pub-
lished in yesterday's Daily in re the
problem of medics doing drill needs
only one glance to see that he (or she)
who signed it "A Student" was honest
in that much. We should judge from
the character of the English that the
author was taking Rhetoric 1A to sub
statiate his claim to the title over
which his article appeared.
The medical students have always
held a peculiar relationship with. re-
gard to the campus in general, for the
very reason that it has so far been
donsidered inadvisable by those who
know for them to drill. A medic is
old enough by the time he has qual-
ified to enter the school to be above
some of the high school tricks which
are perpetrated by the students of
other colleges. His work is of such
a character and the hours so long
that he has no time to enter into the
festivities of the campus, the athletic
work, and other things unless he
divides his time. He would have to
do half work to do most of the things
that the students of three or four one
hour courses can do. One good ex-
ample which even "A Student" may be
able to see into is the fact that in
handing out the Union dance ticekets in
the past, medic upperclassmen were
unable to procure any on account of
the late hour at which they left the
hdspital. There are many more such
Most Medics Enlist
Looking back on the records of the
Medical school our enthusiastic writ-
er can find that fully 90 per cent of
the men in the last four classes of the
school have enlisted,-I said enlisted,
not drafted. The interns at the hos-
pital are all there for just a limited
time as they all'have their applications
in for the service and cannot go until
the men in the present senior class have
graduated and can take their places.
They are holding over some of the
brain fever specialists to take care
of just such cases as the writer of
that most incomprehensible article of
yesterday. The bed is reserved for
A freshman medic who is rarely in
the 19 to 21 class anyhow, has every
morning hour full, the afternoon is
filled wtih a tedious work of standing
up for four hours and a half leaning
over a table. He comes home at night
and studies until the wee sma' hours
and then he cannot cover all of the
assignment competently. In the spring
an extra hour of quiz is added in the
morning, an extra lecture hour at
four, because there is more daylight.
Work All Summer
The present senior class has already
finished three months of its last year
because It voted unanimously to go
right through the summer so that it
might be able to serve its country
earlier.bThe medical faculty consent-
ed to stay here and instruct the men.
It was entirely voluntary. This at-

titude characterizes the entire medical
profession and the article that was
so badly written yesterday shows the
unlimited ignorance of some people.
When the time comes tor the medics
to drill and the surgeon-general at
Washington issues the orders, the
medics will be right there when the
roll is called. The problem of the
combination of drill and medical study
that will result in the best medical
preparation for the sake of the boys
in service is still being worked out.
"A Student" will have gray hair by
the time he can see this. Michigan
medics have a reputation that is hard
to beat. They are working for Mich-
igan, they are doing their bit by stay-
ing here and finishing, and if some-
one who hasn't several loose cortical
cells gives the order to drill, they
will do that much more. Adois!
