From what can be gleaned from the
rather meager information which
Washington gives out relative to the
future of the S. A. T. C., it seems as
I another attempt is being made to
reconcile military preparation and
collegiate training. This time, the
tables will be turned and scholastic
pursuits are to be considered of great-
er importance than, the duties incid-
ent to army life. This change, when
viewed apart from other necessary
alterations, is certainly gratifying to
the man desirous of a college educa-
tion and whose studies have been re-
tarded seriously by the interference
of military work. There are, however,
several features of the new system--
or rather of the plan as it now ap-
pears in the embryo-which cause
concern to the student. The new sys-
tem would be undesirable unless it
provided for study regulated by the
Individual, compulsory military drill
-a feature which may be carried over
from the present regime, freedom of
the student from military law, option-
al attendance of the University, and
optional selection of lodging and eat-
ing places.
The first point is the problem of
study. Are the members of the new
S. A. T. C. to be held to the present
ruling-study from 7 to 9 o'clock ev-
ery night, Saturdays excepted? If so,
the student is handicapped here.
While the advantages of systemized
study are conceded, the profits are
greater If the individual can make his
own regulations. Many students have
found that the best, results 'are ob-
tainable when study periods are less
frequent and are of longer duration;
in other words, it is better to study
five or six hours at night than to
study for two hours at that time and
for short periods at various intervals
during the day, as the present system
requires. Undoubtedly, there were
students who neglected their studies
under the civil regime; but it may
safely be said that these same ones,
or others of a similar type, have ac-
complished little along academic lines
during the exercise of military law.
The practices of Thomas Edison offer
proof of the theory that self-regulat-
ed labor produces the besturesults.as
Somewhat akin to the question as
to the continued existence of military
law, is the debate as to whether or
not -the government will compel mem-
bers of the S. A. T. C. to remain in
the University. The benefits of a col-
lege education may be said to increase
proportionatelf as the desire of the
individual to gain that education. It
folows, then, that the greatest ad-
vantages will accrue to the student
who, of his own free will and accord,
enters and remains in the University.
It uld indeed, be a rare opportun-
ity i the government should offer to
defray the expenses of Uniersit
studentshbut the acceptance of the
proposition should be optional wih
the students.
As to the important items of food
and lodging: If the government
should offer to support the students,
the food and lodging problems should
be left to individual solution. To
students preferring to pay for their

own food and lodging, there might be
made an allowance 'equal to the
amounts allotted to the Uniontand to
the barracks owners for messing and
housing respectively.
The granting of these options
would, of course, remove the individ-
ual to some extent from military jur-
isdiction. The government has, how-
ever, one far-reaching hold on the
student, and the exercising of this
right would be a most effective form
of punishment for the man who would
shirk drill. Foolish would be the stu-
dent to absent himself continually
from drill and thereby be removed
from the governmental pay roll and
deprived of the privilege of wearing
the uniform worn by the majority of
his school-mates. Such punitive meas-
ures would have much the same effect
as a dishonorable discharge.
While it is impossible to prophesy
what action the government wil take
in regard to the future disposal of the
S. A. T. C., it is, however, safe to as-
sume that the S. A. T. C. cannot be
reconciled effectively with the Univer-
sity unless changes as outlined here-
in, perhaps with some minor modi-
fications, are made. With the war
clouds disappearing on the horizon,
the student is unwilling to make the
sacrifices which, in times of belliger-
ency, are made without a murmur.
This is the last day given to Mich-
igan to drag herself out of the slough
of indifference toward the great duty
of the hour. Someone, whose time is
worth as much or more than yours,
is going to come to see you and ask
you to do your part. He will not
need to tell you why you should sub-
scribe, because you know. Unless you
are a shut-in or an inmate of the psy-
chopathic Vard, you do not live in
:America in this crisis of world need
without hearing the testimony to the
necessity of the work which these
organizations are doing. You know
that this is your real chance to help,
not only the men in foreign service,
but the government of the United
States in "building a new house for
the worlds soul,. France," as one
speaker put it. All this you know.
You also know that Michigan Is
making a pitiful show of herself in
this campaign in the eyes of the na-
tion and of other universities and
even of the small colleges of the
state. No matter how the statisticians
at campaign headquarters make out
the list of returns, Michigan takes the
foot. Her total subscription is a joke
at Chicago and Madison and Cham-
paign. Her failure in this campaign
is going to do her as much harm as
football defeat.
You know all these things. When
that fellow comes around today and
Istarts to tell you about them, tell
him that you know all about it. Have
that check made out, so big that it
gives you a giddy feeling, give it to
him and wish him luck. This is the
least you can do now.
If it was hard to outface the home
town gang when Michigan had a los-
ing team, remember what it will be if
Michigan falls down on United War

Champagne, Nov. 20.-Some valua-
ble exepriments on the carbonation of
coal have just been completed at the
University of Illinois by Prof. S. W.
Parr of the Chemistry department.
Professor Parr says that the results
of these experiments suggest a possi-
bility of changing Illinois coal into a
smokeless fuel, and would thus .af-
ford an opening for a new industry.
The by-products of this coal would
also be of value and would have an
important bearing on the manufacture
of gas for city and industrial uses. A
more complete report of the experi-
ment will be issued late, by Professor

Indianapolis, Nov. 20.-Flu masks
are again reigning in Indianapolis.
Any theater or business house admit-
ting unmasked persons will be closed.
.'eTi _val of masks is permitted on
the streets or within homes. These
measures are being taken because of
the increasing rise of influenza in the
city. Schols were ordered closed at
the beginning'of the week.

The Michigan Daily staff, all receive
their share of discussion in the Nov-
ember number of the Alumnus. Most
of the articles in the magazine deal
with the conditions and events which
have moved so rapidly this year and
which have made the first few months
wholly unlike anything , within the
memory of the . former Michigan
man. It is for these reasons that the
recent issue is of more 'than average
interest to the alumni of the Univer-.
Other articles deal with the recent
gifts to the University, the new Li-
brary, and one on the problem of re-
construction in France. A section is
devoted as usual to brief notes on
campus events as also to letters re-I
ceived from various Michigan men in
service. A list of Michigan men in
service and the Maize and Blue honor
roll complete the book.
Although it is a psychological fact
that the movie fad is one that re
quires constant stimulation for growth
-and the subsequent growth of the
managers' receipts--it is also a fact
that since the lifting of the flu ban
business is quite as usual.
"With the war over, people feel
freer to spend their money and enjoy
themselves," said the manager of the
Majestic theater. "We are playing
to capacity houses right along. The
war pictures are still well patroniz-
ed. Perhaps it is because those who
'have had family or friends in service
feel less horror at seeing actual bat-
tle scenes on the screen now that it is
all over."
, Other houses reported that addi-
tional advertising was required to
bring conditions back to normal aft-
er the theaters had been darkened for
any period of time.

th"Struggle, together with faith, brings
the desired goal,"i said Anna Case,
Metropolitan prima donna, when ask-
ed concerning her life.
"There was a constant struggle with
my father over the little money I
earned and spent on my voice. One
day when he thought me still young
enough to whip, I left home with,
$1.50 in my pocket. I had a friend,
the wife of the organist in Plains-
field who helped me to get pupils.
Through the kindness of friends, I was
able to keep up my lessons. I went
from one church choir to another, al-
ways with the bigger chance in view.
Finally, Governor Stokes of New
York took an interest in me and got
me a position to sing three after-
noons a week at the Bellevue-Strat-
ford in Philadelphia.
"At the close of my first concert a
man came to me and asked me to
join his opera company, a branch of
the Metropolitan. Later I became a
member of the Metropolitan.
"But I have scrubbed floors for the
neighbors and worked in their kitch-
ens all day for 50 cents. I worked
in the blacksmith shop to help my
father. At one time I drove a hack.
I always did whatever honest work
offered in order that I might have
money to develop my voice. Any girl,
anywhere, who is willing to make the
sacrifice to develop her talent may
do the same.
