failed to obtain the full amount. The
need for the bureau is as great as
ever. To meet this demand a spot-

should be out for it and the audience
should resemble Convocation.

begin for the Michigan opera, one of
the biggest undertakings of the Uni-

BACK THE UNION
Under ordinary circumstances there
is no need for talking to Michigan
men of either the accomplishments or
the purposes of the Michigan Union
nor of the fact that it deserves un-
qualified, consistent, and hearty sup-
port from every man in the Univer-
sity. .But just now there are great
numbers of new men in school who
because of war conditions have not
been thoroughly grounded in the
course called "What Every Michigan
Man Knows." There is also a very
considerable group of men returning
from the service who are perhaps out
of touch with the Union of the present
day and possess only a hazy notion
of its history during the past two
One of the illusions concerning the
Union which is prevalent among form-
er )3, A. T. C. men particularly is the
notion that the Union profited by its
government contract for the army
mess. The fact of the matter is that
thef Union is right now waiting to
find out whether the government will
reimburse the organization for money
expended, without which reimburse-
ment the Union has sutained a con-
siderable loss. The 47 cents a day per
man allowed by the government for
food was no more than was absolutely
necessary. The amount allowed for
the incidentals of help, equipment, and
fuel was below the actual expenditure.
That the Union mess was below army
standard was due to the fact that
army cooks, capable of providing meals
within the amount allowed, were serv-
ing with regular branches of the army.
The best mess possible under war con-
ditions of food prices and labor scar-
city was provided.
Another student hallucination fre-
quently observed is that the Union
with its outward evidences of a mag-
nificient new building and strong
organization must be remarkably rich,
an institution whose functions is prob-
aly to bestow benefits upon the stu-
dent without requiring anything more
than gratitude in return. On the con-
trary, the Union -has no great endow-
ment other than the enthusiasm and
good will of thousands of alumni and
students. Within the past five years
it has brought the audacious dream of
lovers of Michigan democracy to real-
ity, assuming as it did so, staggering
obligations which it will take time and
straining effort to fulfill. It is esti-
mated that the cost of running the
building will be at least $70,000 a year.
In spite of this burden, it has been
decided to complete the building by
fall. The Union, like most Michigan
products, doesn't start things it can't
finish; but in maintaining that spirit
is has assumed that Michigan stu-
dents and alumni are also imbued
Aside from the building, the Union
has pledged funds to support the Am-
erican University Union in Paris.
Other University institutions, among
them the publications, also pledged
support to this project; it is not an

COMMUNICATION SAYS ROOTERS
WERE POOR SPORTS AT FIRST
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
Interdollegiate sports have been pro-
moted both here and at other uni-
versities for the purpose of develop-
ing a love of sports and a keen sense
of sportsmanship. The love}of sport
was demonstrated at the Michigan-
Indiana game, but the keen sense of
sportsmanship was not.
During the first half, Michigan led
most of the way. The crowd cheer-
ed frantically when a Michigan man
pulled off a spectacular play and ap-
plauded the visitors under like cir-
curhstances. In the second half with
the score reversed, the spectators' ap-
'plause for Indiana's good playing was
noticeably absent. That is comprehen-
sible; we all hate to lose, but the fact
that the rooters hooted the referee
(the best one, by the way, that has
officiated on the floor this year) for
calling fouls which beyond doubt
were committed, is absolutely inde-
fensible from the standpoint of a good
sport, who should take a beating with-
out whimpering, when administered
according to the rules of the game.
In the end Michigan came back, but
the victory, clean as it undoubtedly
was on the team's part, left a bitter
taste because of the unsportsmanlike
attitude of the Michigan rootera.
Can we afford to lay ourselves open'
to just criticism in this way? If we
can't, why not drop this attitude in
the future and be good sports whether
our team leads or not?
A MICHIGAN MAN.
When you've been losing steadily
and it's steadily growing later as it
has a habit of doing these evenings-
and the poor wad who always forgets
to ante, decides to show his non-
chalance and good will by bleating
something which in its adolescent
stage of popularity sounds something
"Mary, Mary, you're ta da da da da.
But when I look into your roughish
Ta da da da da da Paradise
Mary, Mary, hum hum huh huh hum
Mary, Mary, ta de da da da
You're knock-kneed and you're lazy
You're cross-eyed and you're crazy
But you're MAY-REE ta da de da."
Well, wouldn't it make you long for
some stronger expression than "Good-
