DON'T FORGET TO COME BACK
You men who are making your suit-
case-laden way toward the railroad
stations these days, don't forget to
come back! You are planning to re-
turn in February or next fall; you've
told the fellows so, and that's what
you're going toi tell people when you
get home-for a while anyway.
But it won't be many weeks or prob-
ably even days before you will begin
to hear reasons advanced why you
should change your mind. There are
lots of things to do in that home
town of yours and some of them pay
good money. In spite of the fact that
home town folks are prone to scoff
at the value of "college," the fact that
you have been here for a year or two
or even a few months is going to give
you an advantage over other return-
ing men in getting a job. All around
you opportunities will open up; you
will realize that some of them are
blind alleys, but you will also be con-
vinced that others are not, and espec-
ially if the money to continue in the
University comes hard or isn't in
sight at all, the temptation to forget
your resolution to come back and fin-
ish will be overpoweringly strong.
So before you go home to meet this
situation take stock of yourself as
you now are, consider what you will
be ten years from now if you complete
your college course, and what you will
be if you do not. These are the fac-
tors which a man should take into
consideration before making a big de-
cision. Imperfect as conditions at kthe
University have been this fall, small
as the chance has been for men in
the military units to get full value
from their academic work, still you
have at least received some impres-
siois and standards by which to judge
the degree of mental training which
you possess at the present time. Is it
all that you could ever possibly need?
If it seems sufficient to enable you
to meet any situation in which you
now imagine yourself, are you sure
that the unexpected, the big chance,
may not some day come to you?
Look farther ahead than this winter
or next year. Think of the time that
comes to every man who has neglect-
ed opportunities for training when he
reaches the job that marks his limit.
Think of the finest people you know,
the kind whose friendship exhilarates
you and fills you with a restive de-
sire for self-betterment. Think of
what it would mean to you to build
yourself up to mental equality with
And then promise yourself that with
all the power of will you possess, that
you will keep your resolution to re-
turn from being one of the New Year
variety guaranteed to be broken be-
fore JSan. 1.
Come back to Michigan; she has
pledged herself to make it worth your
while if you have the stuff in you,
and Michigan keeps her word.
THE JUNIORS TAKE HOLD
The juniors have officially undertak-
en the task of re-establishing student
traditions and have invited the seniors
to help them. Sophomores as well
as freshmen are to be reminded of
the duties and observances proper to
their years and station. This is a
little bit hard on the pride of '21,
which made an honest effort early in
the fall to do its duty by the fresh-
man class. However, the chief sopho-
more failing is not lack of ability to
discipline the verdant frosh, it is a
tendency to volate sophomore tradi-
tions. The red toque is not as fre-
quently seen on the campus as it
should be, sophomores smoke "M"
pipes unconcernedly on the senior
benches and generally act as if the
word traditions applied only to year-
All this emphasis on conduct, seem-
ingly of little moment, is justifiable
because of what these student conven-
tions symbolize. It makes little dif-
ference to the upperclassman whether
the frosh removes his hat at com-
mand or not as far as the action it-
self is concerned. But long years of
experience has left the knowledge
in the race of college men, that the
act of removing his hat causes the
newcomer in the University to real-
ize that however large a pebble he
feels himself to be, he is now on so
large a beach that it will be some
time before his size will make him
conspicuous; also that all about him
are numerous other rocks of geologic
venerability and no mean proportions.
,Army life and regulations have in-
terfered sadly with the customary ob-
servance of these significant forms,
but with the passing of the military,
they re-assert themselves with their
old strength, thanks to the energy of
'20. If the class can maintain its
motto of. "firmness, but no hazing,"
it will not only perform a service for
Michigan and the present underclass-
men, but will set a standard of loy-
alty and good sense for future class-
es to measure up to.

the student soldiers particularly.

SCHOOL OF MUSIC
TO HOLD CONCERT
The twilight concert to be given at
3 o'clock Sunday afternoon under the
auspices of the School of Music in co-
operation with the War Camp Com-
munity service will be quite out of the
ordinary in that it will consist mainly
of comunity singing. During the pre-
sent year this sort of music has been
provided, for the soldiers and sailors
of this University, under the direc-
tion of Theodore larrison, and it is
now planned to provide similar pro-
grams for the general public from
time to time. In addition to the famil-
iar hymns, patriotic, and trench songs
which will be sung by the audience
with words thrown upon the screen,
James Hamilton of the vocal faculty
of the School of Music will sing a
group of "Negro Spirituals" which
have been arranged for solo voice by
Burleigh. These songs are used large-
ly by the southern negroes at their re-
ligious camp meetings.
The general public is cordially in-
vited to attend the concert, no ad-
mission is charged but parents are
requested not to bring small children.
Flu Masks Donned in Kalaniazoo

Jewish students of Michigan are
planning to take an indirect part in
the great Jewish congress which meets
in Philadelphia today. They will gath-
er at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon
in Lane hall and forward a telegram
to the congress expressing their ap-
preciation of its importance and their
co-operatioti in its aims.
The Philadelphia congress is come
posed of Jews from all over the na-
tion delegated with authority by the
Jews of America, who beside discuss-
ing Jewish problems of all kinds, ex-
pect to bring the "Jewish question"
before the world peace congress now
convening at Versailles. Hope is high
that the Jewish question of the last
two thousand years will there reach
a settlement. Thousands of Jews
were recently massacred by Poles in
Poland and their American kin are
uniting to prevent the repetition of
such atrocities in the future.
The interest in reconstruction work
and in the solution of the Jewish ques-
tion is expected to bring out the Jew-
ish students in a body for Sunday aft-
ernoon's meeting. Speakers for the
meeting will be announced later.

"WEAR MORE CLOTHES AND SAVE
COAL" SAYS CHICAGO DOCTOR
Chicago.-"It is our patriotic duty
to put on more clothes, save coal and
improve health", was the substance
of an address before the Public Health
Administration section of the, Ameri-
can Public Health association by Dr.
Jeannette F. Throckmorton of Clari-
"There are fashions not only in
dress but in trend of thought and
morals" Dr. Throckmorton continued.
"Of these that of protection seems
most often disregarded by the gentler
sex. The custom of wearing summer
clothing in winter is a pernicious
one and the continuel chilling of the
skin causes congestion of the internal
organs with attendant ills.
"Erect carriage and gait are impor-
tant qualities and are influenced by
the style of corset and shoes worn.
"Dress and morals are intimately
associated and modesty in dress ap-
pears in demand but little at pres-
ent. Our adolescent daughters often
use poor judgment not only in dress
but in conduct."
