'TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 1919.
Issue Editor--Edgar D. Flintermann
Ajterica's desire to see a world safe
for its peoples; to establish a just
peace; one that will eliminat the in-
justices that have caused mo of the
wars of the past, is now being put to
the test. The peace conferences have
begun. The United States, with its
Allies has defeated its armed foes.
National unity has been demonstrated
and solidified. Th people of the Un-
ited States have learned impressively
valuable lessons of their capacity for
positive action and f self-sacrifice.
In all these things the United States
has emerged from the war a winner.
And the benefit we have all derived
from these things is incalculable.
But the war will have been fought
to a. great extent in vain by the Unit-
ed States pnd the Allies unless the
peoples have learned to desire a just
peace. Especially will the United
States have failed to gain one of its
most cherished objects in the prose-
cution of the war. We did not enter
the war to gain material advantages
for any nation at the unjust expense
of any other nation.
We knew that a war of aggression
is a dreadful, stupid, crime. We
knew that a war cannot bring good.
We knew that wars of liberation or of
defense are breeders of horror to those
in the right as well as those in the
wrong; that they stop progress to-
ward the amelioration of the condition
of humanity; that they suspend the
war of man against nature while men
war on each other. The people of
United States wished that wars to
right wrongs should never again be
needful, and that wars of aggression
should be made impossible. For our
own safety and the safety of our child-
ren; for the sake of all humanity we
wanted wars to cease, and we backed
up our wishes with our arms.
Now we go to the peace table, to at-
tempt to establish this reign of world-
wide justice. ,.President Wilson has
proposed a League of Nations, and men
close to him have intimated that his
ideas were fairly definite as to what
such a League should be. But all re-
ports agree that President Wilson is
willing to back any plan that will end
the causes of war, no matter what its
name or substance. Of all plans that
have been suggested the League of
Nations idea seems to be best calculat-
ed to bring about the desired resu t
But opposition has arisen in Europe
and in this country to any plan that.
embraces the principles of'the League
of Nations. The greatest apparent op-
position to it is in France. President
Wilson says the old "balance of pow-
er" idea must go, and within a few
days the French premier, Clemenceau,
says he favors the "balance of power."
Whether the differences between the
two men are as real as apparent re-
mains to be seen. We read of'secret
treaties which Italy is unwilling to
annul but which give Italy territory.
wherein resides a people that does
not want I'talian domination, but Ital-
ian crowds shout spontaneous huz-
stands. We read that Engrnd will nev-
er submit to naval limitation, but Eng-
lish soldiers, returning to the home
soil, congregate and cry that English
troops shall no longer fight Russians,
and the government promises to send
no more English troops to Russia, In
the United States, interests urge that
we must have universal military
training, which would be contrary to
the disarmament idea of a League of
So the two forces to which we are
accustomed, the force that favors un-
restricted individualism, and the force
that favors relinquishment of as
,much individualism as is necessary to
relinquish for the general good and
the general peace ;have begun their
contest, with nations as individuals
and the world as the stage and the
happiness of your dear ones and my
dear ones and the dear ones of nearly
two billion others as the stakes.
THE MODER* WAY TO KICK
It has come to be recognized in civ-
ic affairs that cl4an-ups and reforms
come only when the plain people unite
in demanding them and go after them
through responsible agents and in a
systematic way. This is being dem-
onstrated in this University commun-
ity through the efforts of the health
service to secure something like stand-
ard sanitary conditions in dooming
and boarding houses. For generations
the hoary hash and landlady jokes
have been passed appreciatively wher-
ever students foregather and while oc-
casional indignant groups protested
against unusually distasteful condi-
tions, the present dignified and impart-
ial survey marks the new era of com-
munity efficiency. It deserves the sup-
port of students, and needless to say,
will get that of all better-class room-
ing and boarding house keepers.

A conscience is a terrible uncom-
fortable thing. It clings to one like
tuberculosis or a bunch of silly letters
that have been sent. It haunts one
like the smell of blood or creme de
rose. It makes one afraid to answer
the telephone or the doorbell - ini
short, it is a hunch that someone is go-
ing to babble.
The Sophomore Rosary
'IThe hours I spend with thee, old top,
Are as the hours of jail to me.
I think them over every one apart---
Each gland a vein, each vein a nerve,
And somewhere there's an artery;
We follow up each muscle to its end,
And there a bone is found.
Oh memories will stay with me,
Until this fleeting life is o'er,
We study hard and try at last to learn;
To meet the Quizz, Sweet Quizz
To meet the Quizz.

MICHIGAN ALUMNUS RETURNS
TO OFFICES FORMERLY USED
Offices of the Michigan Alumnus
were moved back Saturday to their,
regular quarters in the southwest
corner of Memorial hall. Due to the3
temporary use of that building as a
hostess house, the Alumnus was in-
stalled across the hall on Sept 23.
No inconvenience was suffered by the'
temporary change of quarters except
that the improvised office was some-
what darker than the regular room
which they are again occupying.
Thirty-seven scholarships have beeni
awarded to students at Harvard., In
this way students will be granted aid
for the next two terms.
VARIED WORK FOR
Miss Dora Barnes, professor of
the newly authorized department of
public health nursing in the medical
school, will begin her course in that
subject with the new semester and
only graduate nurses and seniors in
approved training schools will be eli-
gible. It will consist of lectures and
discussions until spring vacation, aft-
er which a new phase of the work
will be introduced. Trips will be
made to Detroit and other nearby ci-
lies to study clinics, school, conta-
gious, tuberculosis, and city nursing.
Miss Barnes is a graduate of Mount
Holyoke, and the Johns Hopkins

perience in city nursing in New York
and during the recent influenza epi-
demic she was in charge of 150 cases
of the disease among' men in the serv-
ice who were stationed in New .York
city. As professor of public nursing
at the George Peabody college for
teachers in Nashville, Tenn., she su-
pervised a course similar to the one
of which she will be in charge here.
MAZDA LAMPS MAY
The whole system of street lighting
in Ann Arbor may be changed, ac-
cording to Mr. E. T. Cope, of the De-
troit Edison company. This company
has already installed 600 mazda lamps
along State street and other neighbor-
ing streets. If these are found to be
better than the old arc lights which
are generally used, it is expected that
the city council wil, order the whole
city system be changed to mazda
The mazda system of lighting has
many advantages over the arc method,
declared Mr. Cope. Mazdas give great-
er illumination and do away with the
spots so often seen beneath the are
light and, he said, the cost of operat-
ing and maintaining the new system is
materially less than the old method.
