A NORMAL UNIVERSITY AGAIN
Next semester a goodly number of
Michigan men, who went out of the
University in 1917 and 1918 to fight the
battles of liberty's cause, will return.
Eagerly they will be to get back "in
the harness" and eaorly they will be
to uphold again' the traditions of their
Before. the spring of 1917 there was
no thought of allowing campus tradi-
tions to pass by unobserved. There
was no thought that probably pub-
lication work, athletics, dramatics, and
the like, would have to be placed upon
the shoulders of younger and inexper-
ienced men. But the war came, and
all was changed.-
This year with the advent of the S.
A. T. C., traditions and activities had
to be left to the fates. Greater things
required first attention. To win the
war was our only consideration.
But now conditions are different.
The war is over, the S. A. T. C. is dis-
banded, and the old men are coming
back. Men who left the University
when it was operating on a normal and'
practically pre-war basis, will desire
to see an immediate reversion. Men
who, while still in school saw the
cherished and long-upheld traditions'
fall before the winds, will also desire
a University as it was in the "good
old days." Men who for the first time
entered Hichigan this year likewise
are waiting patiently to see the Uni-..
versity as it has been pictured to
The consensus of opinion is-the de-
sire for a pre-war University, for at
Michigan as it used to be. To bringf
this about is but a small and pleas-
ant task. It is entirely within our
domain. It is necessary that it bet
done. Let's go, Michigan.
Judging from the number of war-t
rants being sworn out for Mr. Hohen-
.zollern, it would seem that he is i
more danger now than during the war.

Fair Voters Need
Only Swear to 21
Curious men who have been hoping
that when women commenced regist-
ering for the right to' vote they would
learn the answer to the riddle, "How
Old is Ann?", are doomed to disap-
pointment. The rules for registering
which are part of the woman suffrage
amendment state that fair folk when
registering have only to say that they
are 21 years of age, or will be at
least 21 by election day. If inquisitive
clerks request further than this, it is
pointed out that they will be laying
themselves open to a severe rebuff.
All the political parties of the state
have joined in an appeal to the women
of Michigan to make use of the voting
privilege granted to them.
. MODERNIZED NOW
Winnipeg, Can., Jan. 30.-The rom-
ance of red war paint and' bold head
feathers has been blotted from the
lives of Canada's Indians.
The big chief of yesterday who
would summon a war council when
dawn stood tip-toe on the horizon, is
up at the same hour now, but he has
been thoroughly modernized. He is
cranking his car, preliminary to driv-
ing the kiddies to school.
When he returns to his farm house,
he goes into the fields wearing regular
store clothes instead of the belliger-
ent paint of his ancestors, and sets to
work with modern machinery. t
"Canada has solved its Indian prob-
lems," said William Graham, commis-
sione'r of Indian affairs of western
Canada. "Canada has civilized him."
"The Canadian today is an educated
farmer. He is a Christian and goes
to church regularly every Sunday-
often drives there with his fanily in
his automobile. His children go t
school. He is as good a farmer as
his white neighbors-sometimes a bet-
teir one. Government agricultural ex-
perts visit him periodically, They
teach him the latest scientific methods
of cultivating land. Many Indians are
agronomists in the highest cultural
sense. The new generation is keen to
learn and progress and become the
equal to the white man in -every way."
The commissioner said there was no
foundation for the common belief that
the Indians' were gradually dying out.
"The Indian population of Canada has
been increasing for the last ten years.
Better living conditions, education,
and medical attention are account-
able for this. There are 100,000 In-
dians in 'Canada. Indians in western
Canada put under cultivation 100,000
acres of land this year. They pro-
duced 400,000 bushels of wheat. All
the Indian reserves are self-support-
Two thousand Indians enlisted in
the Canadian army, went overseas and
upheld their old war path traditions.
All girls who missed their posture
examinations must be examined Fri-
day morning. If this is impossible,
they must call Miss Marion Wood at
Barbour gymnasium Friday morning.
The last meeting of the attendance
committee for women this semester
will be held from 11 to 12:15 Monday,
The board of directors of the Wom-
en's league will not hold its regular
meeting Saturday morning on account
DH. C. G. BLISS WARNS A(1ATNST
NE-NAVE OF FEEBLE IN1EDNESS
"The feeble minded are one of the
greatest menaces of the times," said
Dr. C. G. Bliss, superintendent of the
Institute for Feeble Minded Youths at
Fort Wayne, Ind. Doctor Bliss was
addressing the Social Workers' club
of Detroit last Monday evening, lie
says that there are 59,000 mental de-
fectives in Indiana and about the same
number in Michigan.
"There must be radical changes in
legislation governing this field and,
" above all, an awakened public con-
science. With these weapons we may
hope to hold In check what otherwise
would encroach upon the health and
sanity of society," he concluded.
LABOR BOARDS FIX
Washington, D. C., Jan. 30.-In the
annual report labor conditions on the
railroads during 1918, W. J. McAdoo
stresses the methods used in the fix-
ing of wages, hours, and controversies
between workmen and operators.
Commissions and boards were the
media by which agreements were se-
cured. Strikes during the 12 months
wereunknown, although the number
of questions settled by the boards
could easily have resulted in tie-ups
had not this means of reaching an
agreement been resorted to.
The sections of the.report dealing
with women labor show how the pro-
blem of wages, night work, heavy
duties, and unsatisfactory conditions
were solved. Whenever possible night
shifts were given to men and only
the lighter tasks were open to wom-
en, as soon as the supply 'of labor
allowed it. A comprehensive survey
in statistical form concluded the re-
