Fielding H. Yost, the pride of Mich-
igan, has finished one of the most suc-
cessful seasons in the history of the
University. He has taken war-time'
material, with war-time conditions,
and produced what proved to be an
undefeatable football eleven.
His ability, made famous by 18 years
of coaching, will become immortal in
the gridiron world as the result of his
1918 aecomplishment. His sacrifices
to Michigan are respected by the
school, for giving up business and
home life to the interest of the Maize
and Blue, he spends months at the
University, to give it a standing in
the football world.
Some call him an old timer. Some
say his methods are worn out, but
when he can produce an undefeated
eleven which has one of the best
claims in the country for a champion-
ship standing, in spite of handicaps
such as military discipline, freshmen,
and the flu-.

MICHIGAN OBSERVATORY IS ON
LOOKOUT FOR LITEST COMET
Strange things are happening over
our heads. The latest discovery is in
the form of a comet first seen abeut 10
days ago by Professor Seherr of
Hamburg university. It is located
seven degrees southwest of the bright
star, Aldebaran. Professor Burton,
at the naval observatory in Washing-
ton, was able to see this latest heav-
enly body last Saturday with the aid
of a powerful telescope.
Astronomers at the observatory of
the University of Michigan have been
on the lookout for this first new comet
of the year, but it has been too cloudy
lately to locate it.

THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
President Wilson has given voice to
plans, foreign and domestic, and
e pillars of tne temple still stan,;
#btless much to the surprise of self-
pointed interpreters of the Presi-
nt's mind. He did not advocate
ite socialism; on the contrary he
id business would be returned to pri-
te management as speedily as pos-
le, and even the railroads would be
lased" from government control if,
d when, some method for returning
am should be proposed that wouldj
t result in the same evil conditions
which the railroads were before the
ernment took them over. That is
that the most bitter opponent of
vernment ownership asks.
rhe President specifically sided with
ye who say that genius of the Am-
can people is in free opportunity
- economic development, unhamper-
by government regulations.
rhere was no fanatical visionary or
cifist plea for disarmament on the
rt of the United States. The President
ged that our three-year naval pro-
am be carried out, a program great-
than that of England, because it
uld be unwise to base our de-
ise plans on a world scheme that
s not been adopted in principle,
ich less 'worked out to practical ac-
)n these points President Wilson
s been much less radical than his
enies hoped and prophesied he
uld be; much less radical than
sy of his admirers hoped and
>ught he would be. As to govern-
bnt control of ocean cables, he act-
on expert advice that unified
re control was for the best. Gov-
nment control will make it impos-
>1e for any special interest to ob-
.n more than its share of the limit-
"service possible over cables.
'It is my duty to play my full part
making good what they (America's
Idiers) offered their life's blood to
tain," says President Wilson, refer-
ag to his determination to go per-
nally to Europe. He says the Al-
4 nations have accepted peace pro-
sals enunciated by him and it is his
ramount duty to be present. The
esident is in a position to know
iether his presence at Paris will
1p to make good those principles for
aich America has sacrificed much,
d if he can aid, be it by ever so lit-
, in obtaining the establishment of
ose principles it certainly is his
ramount duty to go. To talk about
being undignified, or making Amer-
a appear to be trying to force its
>inions on Europe is bosh. Amer-
a entered the war to make the world
fe for democracy; Americans sac-
ficed their blood and treasure to
ing about a lasting peace along just
aes of national self-determination;
ur Allies knew our position when
tey accepted our aid, and a President
ho would hesitate to do everything
t his power to establish our world
rinciples would be recalcitrant and
nWorthy of his position.
