THE RETURN OF CAMPUS
That there are good times coming
fr the University and for student life
W prved by the rapid return to the
ampus of organizations and activities

ag low and blue. Every day now sees
Ibe revivification of some phase of the
jd life-the band, the dramatic and
usical clubs, debating, campus so-
ties, fraternities-every sort of
lass, social, religious, and self-ex-
resva activity is coming back to us.
In the' days before the war there

bout the campus on the general use-
essness of some of these groups; or

Do campus activities really pay?"
lthough there is much to be said in
ehaf of the stand that participation
y any individual in a large number
f organizations wastes his force, in-
erferes with his academic work, and
revents him from accomplishing
nything worth while in any one line,
he existence of the activities them-
tlves can no longer be attacked.
The very fact that they are being
Wrought back into existence in spite
.f the difficulties of the present situ-
tion is proof enough of their value.
'he really useless ones, and there
robably are a few, will not reappear,
pr no oie will take the trouble to re-
-ive them. Those which are returning
rvidently fill a want which is present
a the student body, which can be
upplied by no other force, and their
ight to live cannot be questioned.
The problem of the future will be
he same as in the past-how to dis-
rdbute the value of the activities to
he largest possible number of men
nd women in the University-but it
kill not be complicated by insinuations
hat the activities themselves have no
Those who assume responsible pos-
tions in campus organizations can at
h:s time do much to solve the distri-
>uton problem by searching out new
naterial, of which there are obvious-
y vast and unknown quantities. And
iew men in the University should
eel no hesitancy in following these
venues of expression and good fel-
owship as fast is they are opened up
o them. There is a chance for every
ind of talent and no lights should be

o come out of the reconstruction per-
od finer, stronger, and greater than
aver and with her will come all the
smaller groups who help to make up
he sum of her glory.
Edward Everett Hale's "Man With-
ut a Country" is being enacted on a

Russian government has turned back

They wish to bring the fact before
the students that the S. A. T. C. here
is the only large one in the United
States which has not been forced to
have military police in order to en-
force order. The .organization here
is the largest one in the country. The
authorities wish to thank the men for
making this possible by their good
behavior and by showing such good
spirit. Except f9r these two cases of

The pictures will be accompanied

MIMES TO DISCUSS DATE OF
1919 MICHIGAN OPERA TODAY
The Mimes of the Michigan Union
will hold a meeting at 4:40 o'clock
this afternoon to decide on the policy
and book of the Michigan Union opera.
The meeting which will be held in the
old Union building will decide the fate
of the opera given annually by the
students of the University. The all-
important question of whether the Un-
iversity women will be allowed to take
part in the opera will probably be de-
cided at that time.
DR. BARBOUR WILL SPEAK TO
MEMBERS OF WESLEYAN GUILD
Dr. C. A. Barbour, president of
Rochester Theological Seminary, will
speak at a meeting of the Wesleyan
Guild next Sunday evening at thet
Methodist church. Dr. Barbour's sub-
ject will be "Battles After the War."
The speaker is a well known Y. M.
C. A. worker and is editor of "Ser-
vice," the "Y" magazine.
REARRANGEMENT OF FIGHT-
ING FLEET EXPECTED AT ONCE
EVEN CLASSMATES LOOK DOWN
ON "FROSH" BREAKING RULES
There is a great deal of bad feel-
ing in the freshman class against
those members of the class who are
not living up to the traditions and
customs of the University concerning
freshmen. About 30 of the freshman
have gotten together and have decid-
ed that there is only one thing to do
to make these men wear pots and
conform to the other customs and that
is to use force.
"It looks bad for the whole class,"
said one "frosh," "and we are going
to make every freshman wear his pot
We have formed a committee of about
30 husky freshmen and we are go-
ing to see that the remainder of our
class lives up to the traditions of
Michigan. I am sure that we are
backed in this by about nine-tenth=
of the freshman class and there are
enough of us to see that the re-
mainder does its part.
"There are two freshmen around
the campus today," he continued,
"who were nominated for class offices
and who are not wearing their pots.
We are doing this as much in self
protection as anything else for if
some members of our class fail to do
their duty it puts all of us in bad
with the sophomores and only means
that we will get it all the worse when
the S. A. T. C. is disbanded and the
sophs can haze as much as they want
to without fear of arrest."
Juniors will hold basketball prac-
tice at 4:30 o'clock today, and seniors
at 5 o'clock.
Girls who have not reported for the
classes in swimming are to do so at
The Women's league will hold a cir-
cus Friday evening.
All sophomore girls who have not
paid their f,:eshman social tax are to
do so at once. They are to pay Elinor
Leonard at 1520 South University ave-
nue, or Dean Myra B. Jordan.
A dancing party will be held by
the junior girls at 3 o'clock Saturday
afternoon in Barbour gymnasium.

Alumni Admire New Union Building
Almost all of the alumni that have
recently visited the new Union build-
ing have expressed approval of the
building itself, but ask why it has not
been finished and why the interior de-
corations are latking. If more money
is forthcoming it will be completed.
I Himer Heath, now in charge of ther
Union, says that it is perhaps fortun-
ate that the building has not yet
been completed because the S. A. T.
C. men unconsciously ruin decorations
with their heavy hobnailed shoes.

RETURN TO SEMESTER PLAN
NOT TO CAUSE ANY CONFUSION
Dean John R. Effinger anticipates
no confusion as a result of the change
from the term system back to thej
semester plan. He says that in cours-
es where the work formerly done in
a semester has been so condensed as
to complete it in the term, it will be
left to the discretion of the instructor
whether he will go on with the work
or whether he will review. The mid-
semesters will be optional with the
instructor as usual. The regular time
of two weeks will be devoted to the

S. A. T. C. Range to Be Abandoned
The trenches and rifle range which
were being remade for the use of
the S A. T. C. will be abandoned, ac-
cording to Lieut. R. Anway, who is
in charge of the range work here.
"I have not received any definite or-
ders as yet," said Lieutenant Anway,
"but now that the S. A. T. C. is dis-
banding there is no use for the range
and we will probably abandon it.."
