Editor, The Michigan Daily:
Permit me to congratulate you on
the extremely able editorial "Hysteria
vs. Reason" which appears in this
morning's issue of The Michigan Dai-
ly. It is an unanswerable reply to a
most ill-advised, intolerant, and un-
sound point of view. Such rash state-
ments as Prof. W. H. Hobbs is respon-
sible for are what make it possible
for German propagandists, both in this
country and abroad, to charge Amer-
ica with being insincere in her ideal-
ism and to make people feel that the
leaders of this country are mad with
the lust of power and wealth. Such
statements are quite as vicious as ex-
treme pro-German expressions.
I have always believed in the doc-
trine of academic freedom, but I real-
ize that under it such institutions as
the University of Michigan must suf-
fer at the hands of notoriety seekers
and persons of unbalanced judgment.
The man on the street has a tendency
to regard the action or statement
of an individual as characteristic of
the entire institution.
I only hope that your editorial is
read as widely as Professor Hobbs'
statement, as it represents what I feel
sure is the best of campus opinion,
while Professor Hobbs' remarks rep-
resent the worst.
Yours truly,
G. S. LASHER, '11.
The Red Cross quotas are similar
to those of last year, and it is nec-
essary to have as many girls at work
this year as last. The different houses
on the campus are going to organize
and pledge a certain number of hours
according to the number of members.
A regular schedule is to be made out
so the necessary number of Instruct-
ors will be provided. An attempt was
made yesterday to complete 4,000
masks for the S. A. T. C., to be worn
in the barracks. As yet the girls have
not entered into the spirit of the
work and their hearty co-operation
is necessary for the success of the
new drive. The present quota must be
finished by Nov. 15, and it cannot
be done unless the girls are willing
to help.
The Y. W. C. A. membership cam-

paign is progressing rapidly. Dur-
ing the first day of the campaign 12
girls reported 48 members, and yes-
terday the number had increased con-
siderably. An attempt is being made
to have a 100 per cent record on the
campus. The girls are working earn-
estly, and with a committee of 80
girls great results are being hoped
for. Workers are urged to report to
Miss Hulda Bancroft as soon as pos-

that this will not be necessary after

Editor, The Michigan Daily:
It is because I believe that good-
tempered discussion is what we most
need, that I gladly avail myself of the
opportunity to reply to ThenDaily's
editorial of this morning. In it is
stated that the 14 peace terms of Mr.
Wilson were approved by our own peo-
ple and also by the Allies. This I be-
lieve to have been more apparent than
real, and in any case they were no
more generally approved than was the
"peace without victory" message now
repudiated even by Mr. Wilson.
The editorial questions whether
"freedom of the seas," as outlined in
article 2 is in the interest of Germany.
I have devoted an entire lecture and
a chapter in a forthcoming book to
this subject alone, but there is here
room for a very brief discussion only.
The question should clearly be ans-
wered: (1) by asking which group of
warring powers has set up the de-
mand for "freedom of the seas"; (2)
by taking the natural interpretation
of the President's article; and (3)
by examining his other pronounce-
ments and those of his one advisor,
Colonel House.
(1) The Allies have not asked for
"freedom of the seas," which has al-
ready long existed except during war.
Germany's cry has, on the contrary,
been vociferous and importunate.
Count zu Reventlow, editor of the
chief Pan-German organ of Berlin,
says: "Freedom of the seas depends
on the liberation of Ireland." In a
secret message to Austria the late Im-
perial Chancellor Michaelis wrote,
"Germany has to solve two problems
-the freedom of the seas and the
opening of the route to the southeast
-and these two problems can only be
solved through the destruction of
(2) The wording of the President's
article is "Absolute freedom of nav-
igation upon the seas, outside territor-
ial waters, alike in peace and in war."
No ambiguity here. The British
blockade, which alone has permitted
the arms of the Allies to triumph,
would under such circumstances be-
come impossible and navies be of lit-
tle use.
(3) Colonel House, paramount rov-
ing ambassador to all Europe, but
without legal authority, actually of-
fered the German 'chancellory in the
spring of 1915 a release from the Brit-
ish blockade-which would have lost
us the war-tried to induce Great
Britain to accept it, and believes he
would have succeeded had not the
Lusitania outrage been perpetrated.
(Arthur A. Howden Smith, "The Real
Colonel House," Doran, 1918, pp. 187-
196.) Germany was so delighted with
this offer that she had von Bernstorff,
Dernberg and von Kuehnemann bolst-
er the offer with a vigorous campaign
of propaganda in America. Mr. Wil-
son advocated it elaborately in his
"peace without victory" message to
congress of Jan. 22, 1917, and he has
now retained it in his peace terms of
Jan. 8, 1918.
My statement that article 3 flies in
the face of the Paris pact of the Al-
lies, it is stated, is not in harmony
with the views of the economics de-
partment of the University. That de-
partment can, I am sure, speak for it-
self; but in the meantime let me call
attention to the fact that all the Allied
nations agreed at the Paris conference
to establish most rigorous economic
barriers against Germany both during.

and after reconstruction, in order to
protect their own trade and particu-
larly to aid in the rehabilitation of
the devastated country. These bar-
riers included discriminative tariffs,
refusal of the "most favored nation"
privileges to Germany, and the estab-
lishment of preferences in the distri-
bution of necessary raw -materials.
(Recommendations of the Economic
Conference of the Allies held at Paris,
on June 14, 15, 16, and 17, 1916.) More
recently a similar conference has
been held for like purposes by Great
Britain and her self-governing com-
monwealths. Referring to both these
pacts, Premier Lloyd George in a re-
cent speech said: "The world will not
come right at once, and if you dis-
solve partnership with all these great
peoples - a partnership cemented in
blood-there will be men quite ready
to take advantage of it, even when
the war is over.
"Therefore, it is vital that when the
war is over and when the transition
period has come, there will not
be enough to go round, we must keep
the partnership going."
"Up to the present time America
has expressed no opinion upon the
Paris resolutions, and it is vitally im-
portant that the policy of Amercia and
the policy of this country should be
in complete agreement on economic
problems as well as on other prob-

Mr. Wilson's article 3 reads: "The
removal, so far as possible, of all eco-
nomic barriers and the establishment
of an equality of trade conditions
among all the nations consenting to
the peace and associating themselves
for its maintenance." I need only add
that if we should break with the Al-
lies on economic problems, we shall
play directly into the hands of Ger-
many and go far toward preventing
the proper rehabilitation of the invad-
ed countries.
In conclusion let me say that I
make no apologies for stating that
terms which do not even provide for
reparation and indemnity to poor
martyred Belgium must be in the in-
terest of Germany.

Prof. Marx Jefferson, former pro-

Ypsilanti, and well known in Ann
Arbor, has recently returned from
South America, where he has been

ing valuable information for the Unit-
ed States government. He was for-
merly president of the National Geo-
graphical association and is now in
New York compiling geographical and
physiographical information concern-
ing the countries now involved in the
war and their outlying possessions.
Up to the present time, Germany is
practically the only country that has
any appreciable knowledge of the
minerals and other valuable products
of the different countries, and in or-
der that the allies may make a sat-
isfactory peace with Germany when
the time comes, they must be as well
informed as she is.
