FUTURISTS AND PRESENTISTS
We are all ambitious. All of us have
some goal which we hope to reach
some day-if we didn't, life wouldn't
be worth much. Some of us have
greater ambitions than others. Some
of us think we will be satisfied with
How many of us really take our
ambitions very seriously? We have
hopes of realizing them, but we think,
h with a mental wave of the hand, that
the future will take care of every-
What we should realize is that it
is our daily work that makes for the
fulfillment of our ambitions. The goal
will not be reached by waiting for
it to arrive.
It is pleasant to dream of the"sweet
bye and bye," but we must remember
that we are in the act of shaping it
day by day. It lies with us to make
the dreams of the future come true.
The "do it now" method is one of the
best ever for realizing ambitions.
Don't be a futurist. Be a presentist.
STUMP SOCKS FOR MAIMED
One of the most pathetic sights that
will greet the eye in the near future,
are the returned soldiers with maim-
ed or missing limbs. A movement
under way to provide stump socks for
the maimed soldiers should need no
impetus among the women.
The soldiers who are coming back
imaimed, and who will be handicapped
all their lives because they came to
the aid of their country, should be
shown every consideration that the
country can offer.
Some women think that since the
war is ended they need not knit any
longer. The need for the stump socks
.has been shown to be a pressing one,
and instead of relaxing their efforts,
the women shonuld increase them,
and make it their duty to see that
every maimed soldier is provided. This
is not so much to ask, considering'
what the soldier has done.
movement will be inaugurated as soon
as the municipal beach is completed.
After all, the delegates to the peace
conference are human. Now they are,
quarrelling over the coal problem.
Why shouldn't the hungry Bolshe-
viki look to Leon Trotzky for food.
Didn't he wait table in New York?

FEW GIRLS ATTEND GAMES
LACK OF INTEREST IN ATHLETICS
IS DEPLORED BY UNIVERSITY
Not so many years ago the dimen-
sions of Barbour gymnasium were
too small to accommodate the crowd
of feminine enthusiasts at women's
basketball contests. In fact, rules
were established restricting the num-
ber of attendants, and the number of
tickets for each game was definitely
limited. This year, it is a rare oc-
currence when the four bare walls of
the gym are hidden from view by spec-
tators. And this in spite of the fact
that the Women's Athletic association
today has more names on its membet-
ship roll than at any previous time
in its career.
Undoubtedly the demands of the
war-time period had their effects here
as -elsewhere. The subjugating of
normal activities to knitting socks
and folding compresses left little ex-
cess time in University women's sched-
ules for energetic support of their
athletics. With the comparative cessa-
tion of these demands, however, Uni-
versity authorities and students are
once more united in concerted effort
to "normalize" the campus.
At 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon,
there will be a basketball game be-
tween the sophomore and freshman
women. It will be the first game of
the inter-class series. This repre-
sents just one among the definite op-
portunities for girls to display their
interest in the University through the
medium of their own activities. And
support of one of their own major
activities is a fair index to the ex-
tent of their interest in that bigger
heritage of men and women alike,-
and freshman basketball
will be held at 4:50 o'clock
afternoon in Barbour gym-
The class in apparatus work will be
held at 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon

A freshman-sophomore game will
be played at 4 o'clock Wednesday aft-
ernoon in Barbour gymnasium. This
is the first interclass game of the sea-

On the road to To-le-do, we could

For the cinders fly like bullets on the

On the road to To-le-do, black and

With our feet upon the cushions we
were praying soft and low.
Oh, I'm tired of wasting shekels in

And the round of oyster cocktails

I've gazed at all the singers from

And clapped at all the encores till I

WOMEN ENGINEERS AS-
SERT WAR-EARNED RIGHTS
London.-Women engineers, one of
the discoveries of the war, have _
banded together in the Woman's En-
gineering society, a trade union, which
has decided upon what the women
term a "forward" movement.
The women, who are doing techni-
cal work in government and controlled
factories, as well as in privately own-
ed institutions, want among other
Admission to the Amalgamated So-
ciety of Engineers, to become mem-
bers of institutes of civil engineers,
naval architects, iron and steel and
other bodies now closed to women, to
serve on the boards of universities,
and to become eligible for technical
branches of the higher civil service.
"Women have no desire to take
men's places," is the way theyput
their position. "But there will be need
for engineering products throughout
the world, and there will be work for
women as well as for men."

Why Not Perpetuate University Life
Why not have a snap, or flashlight, of the "Bunch," the "Dance," or
the hundred and one other things that occur at "Michigan?" Nothing
tells the sto like a Picture. They make delightful souvenirs that will
be cherishe long after other things are forgotten.
You kno or if you don't you can find out for yourself, that Lyndon's

are still trying but none have succeeded in approaching them in quality.
I am 'telling you this but don't take my word for it, be your own judge.
Now it's a simple thing to get these pictures; just call Lyndon, and he'll
get them, night or day.
Please get your order in before 8 P. M. for evening.
